We'll have to nuke the site from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure.

So guys, apparently my local Council is hated universally by everyone in the country.

I liked this take on it.

"This bungalow does not have wheels." Heh.

I'll just declare my prejudice now and say I have very little care for travellers. There are so many times they can let their horses roam free in my front garden and put bricks through my lettterbox before it stops being endearing.

Plus, 'ethnic cleansing'? Come on. All they're doing is pulling down some permenant structures on half your land. When your menfolk are taken up the road, shot and buried in an unmarked mass grave, then we can talk about ethnic cleansing.

Wow. Now we really should work to pass the bill.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

"I'd be making less money, so I will choose to make no money." Sounds like a sound way of reasoning.

I concur.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Bill O'Reilly's job is safe for two reasons;

1. Obama won't raise his taxes,

2. O'Reilly wouldn't quit if he did.

Didn't he say he'd leave the country if Obama's healthcare bill passed?

Or am I thinking of a different bill / different blowhard?

Everybody does that. It's human nature to punish unfairness.


This doesn't change the fact that O'Reilly's a moron, though. BAWWW TAX POOR PEOPLE INSTEAD BLUHBLUHBLUH

One day I hope I can be so influential that I can make poor people think they deserve less and defend the wealthy.

You just have to be a pundit.

Or go shirtless. People would be too in awe of your manly physique to argue with anything you say. :3

Moammar Gadhafi is dead. To quote myself in the Bin Laden thread,

It was interesting to see various suited gentleman celebrating the demise of Mr Gaddaffi when they were selling him weapons in February and he spoke at the UN last year. Fair weather friends, eh?

The worst part has been the bizarre spasm-back-into-life of the once-latent ugly, pro-Gaddaffi feeling as an 'anti-imperialist' or the 'best hope Libya had to resist Western corporations'. He has become a very good method for certain clueless lefties to ritually purge themselves of their colonial guilt.

It's only a matter of time before George Galloway says something embarrassing.
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." - Oscar Wilde

Yes, I am aware of the irony.
