Quote & Cartoon of the Week




"All across the Middle East in the streets, people are demanding democracy. It's amazing. The only way in America you get people to get worked up like that is to threaten to give them health care." –Bill Maher

  5. What a sad state of affairs here in the US when something so ridiculous can be both exasperatingly true and ha-ha funny at the same time!

  6. I heard that dinging yesterday. I filled my car with unleaded petrol. 30.38 litres cost me £39.46. £6.58 of that was VAT for the government pocket, yes the VAT rate now sits at 20%.

    I wonder if I will need a mortgage next time?

  8. Bill Maher sums up the situation perfectly. But Americans believe they have democracy already - that is, the right to run their own lives in their own way. They fail to realise just how dependent their lives are on other people's cooperation.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
