"'It didn't mention nobody who lives in Clark County, didn't mention (George Rogers Clark High School), didn't mention no principal or cops, nothing,' said Poole."

With language like that, his stories might qualify as WMDs.

"My story is based on fiction"

It was about a high school over ran by zombies."

:lol:

I seriousness i am absolutely incredulous that this has been brought to court, and a line like:

a judge raised Poole's bond from one to five thousand dollars after prosecutors requested it, citing the seriousness of the charge.

makes me wonder what kind of shit these people smoke and where can i get some...

Scissors are potentially dangerous - but not a police matter.

If you send your little 7 year old to school with safety scissors, it's still a trip out of school, in handcuffs, and will be charged, in several states. Like Florida. Zero Tolerance.

Nasty talk, scary stories, that's usually covered under the Anti-Colombine laws passed in many communities. So, any authoring or telling of such tales is a crime. More zero tolerance and "protect our kids from postals".

But only because he's a weasel, and not a fox. How long before your PETA equivalent bans weasel hunting as well?

Bergzwerg
02-03-2005, 10:14:03
It's not really our PETA equivalent (from what I hear they are quite extreme) just a majority of normal people that got hunting banned.

People can still go on hunts, drag hunts or whatever are still legal. They just can't hunt foxes. :)

The restriction on 'dogs on horseback' is to prevent an immoral act. Similar to banning theft, or assault, or any stuff like that. Fair enough.

Where nannyism is really coming in, is when they ban stuff that is not immoral. Such as wiring in a new mains spur in your own house. Or where it's not a banning, but a compulsion to do or give something, such as ID cards and biometric details for the database.

We should make it compulsory for all MPs to run with scissors. Especially the one pretending to represent me, who, after I demolished her arguments as to why she voted in favour of ID cards merely told me that she didn't agree, and restated one of her discredited "reasons".

Ha !

No intention of doing so, but this makes a difference how ?

Know any of them who plan to overturn the mass of controversial laws this lot have put in ?

No, none of them ever do. Whoever gets in you get a rachet effect of all the stuff you don't want left in, and another new different lot added to it.

It's a sad state of affairs but I no longer view law-breakers as being automatically wrong. Not when it's become plain that a decent honest person can be labelled a criminal simply by justifiably rebelling against bad law. Better to risk the anarchy of laws held in disdain, than to let an elite increase their own power to do whatever they want to you, by simply voting for it.

But they still don't stand a chance of getting into power. And I'd have my doubts wheter they could hold the balnace of power even, since to achieve that both 'real' Tories and Lib Dems would need to gain massively.

Still, there's always UKIP I suppose.

Yes I do think. It is a slow process, indecisiveness and lack of co-operation between citizens make it so.

The government at the end of the day are a few versus the masses. If organised correctly government will come crashing down to the will of the people. Democracy doesn't exist in this country.

The will of the people is malleable. Especially if you catch 'em young, but that's a bonus.

Europe's good Gary, we just need to make it more democratic and accountable.

Gary
02-03-2005, 16:28:19
I appreciate that's your view, but for me Europe is a mixed blessing to say the least. If I pick a tribe to relate to, it will be Britain (or if things continue to fall apart, England). Europe is too large. If one thinks that an individual has no real say in their own country, how much more isolated and ignored the individual is in a continent sized group.

I can't relate to the idea that it is one people, which is the basis of the EU (if not the Common Market). And I certainly don't believe there is anything like the consensus needed in viewpoints etc.. Therefore any laws or obligations that come from there is an imposition from a foreign people, and not a decision by ourselves. Regardless that I want friendly terms with all of Europe (or elsewhere for that matter) or even if my so-called representatives vote in favour.

Making it more democratic and accountable would help, but it would still not be ideal, especially when I see what other people consider to be democracy.

Furthermore I don't accept the "peace" argument (since an EU with a faltering economy will break into groups looking out for themselves anyway) Peace is encouraged by a thriving economy and the belief that 'things' are good. The economy is helped by agreements (between nations), binding all into one offers no more.

Besides I have little enthusiasm for many of the decisions that the EU make. Sure there must be some that work ok, but, for example, binding exchange rates closely together failed prior to the Euro. Now many nations are bound into it, like it or not. That has to affect the ability of the individual governments to make their own economic decisions. I do not see that as a good thing.

And sure, it's nice to have a higher authority to appeal to when your national authority seems to be being unfair, but ultimately that is a hollow advantage. No matter what the situation, there is always a "highest" authority, regardless as to whether that is at a national level, or at European one. You hit it some time anyway. So how much is one more appeal level really worth ?

The important thing is to get one's own country working correctly, which sadly for the UK, in my opinion, is in reverse gear, and has been for quite a while. In fact I find it quite sickening that these days I rely on an unelected, undemocratic second chamber to try to 'put right' the destruction of civil rights (and other stuff) wrought by the present elected chamber. Ironic isn't it, but I guess that's life.

Seems so long ago now when I thought that those who actually had an interest in politics could be relied upon to deal with the matter reasonably well, even if they looked after their own interests first. Now they seem to have lost sight of what I understand as this country's culture. The rights of the individual to be protected whenever it wasn't shown to be a necessity to limit them. Rights fought for since Magna Carta and since. Sure it could always be worse, but why assume all is ok, just because somewhere on the globe there are nations that still don't come close to what we have ? (Putting aside the thought that they may not value the same things anyway.)

But back to Europe. I see no, or at best insufficient, advantage to being a single federal block as opposed to a group of trading nations. Consequently Europe, or at least the EU, does not seem a good thing to me. And I've not even touched on the problems of expanding like mad, with the subsequent loss of control for all existing individual nation members.

But this is depressing, time to get back to work, I've a deadline to try to hit.
