The EU...the solution to a problem that never existed.

I'll be in West Sussex and Gloucestershire in about ten days. Very much looking forward to it. Cheers!

This is outrageous! When companies removed support for the Boy Scouts, I moved my investments and credit card accounts to other vendors. I am now going to switch my DISH account to cancel SHOWTIME and I will not attend Paramount films. We must hit these traitorous companies where it hurts- in the pocketbook!!

My bad. I meant "Opie and Anthony", naturally.

Opie and Andy were rather wholesome and unobjectionable, as I recall...

Susan Sontag proclaiming the Caucasian race the cancer of world humanity.

The great irony here is that the "Caucasian race" includes everything from Iceland to the Indian sub-continent, including North Africa.

Remember that, the next time someone cries about "racial profiling" against Arabs -- "I'm Caucasian, so are you, Abdul."

And since the Euros think it's so cute, we should strip search every citizen entering the U.S. from any EU nation. Make them feel like the Arab terrorists they love so much.

Now you're talking. Bttt!

Do you really believe Smith is going to be the next PM?

I am not trying to be confrontational, but I wish I could share your optimism. My admittedly cursory reviews of British media, even conservative papers, indicate the Tory party is in long-term decline.

Polls still show consistent majorities for not joining the Euro and indeed leaving the EU.

Thank heavens your countrymen in general are sensible. England doesn't deserve being stuck with the EU.

Nobody wants to talk about Viacom much. What South Park recently did and the incident at St. Pat's cathedral this week. Oh no....the CEO of the company sponsoring this and other disgusting events has nothing...NUTHING...to do with anything. In fact, we don't even know who he is, do we?

The premise of this film is garbage on its face. The big lie told by the anti-Americans is that the radical islamists hate America because of its foreign policy. Thats not the truth. The truth is that radical islamists could not care less about the assassination in Chile, but they are very motivated by the sick liberal culture that tells there women to dress and act like whores.

....Vivendi-Universal....

This is NOT an American company, but a multinational vaguely "Euro-American" company, with NO LOYALTY WHATSOEVER to any nation-state!!!!

Vivendi-Universal is truly a New World Order outfit. Just like the Third Way and other NWO politicians that carry out the NWO's political and military aims, the NWO media moguls have a not-so-secret alliance with islamic radicals, which serve as the thug arm of the whole multinational conglomeration!!!!

Having a bunch of decadent, spiritually vacuous mutlinational media types foist off their glorification of islamofascism and expoitation of the victims of 9/11 on the general public is SICKENING IN THE EXTREME!!! These are the same malefactors who make movies in which the Serbs are always the bad guys, and they do much else to undermine anything to do with Christian civilization.

I want to ask you all a question.

In a popularity contest among all the nations of the world, who would win "favorite nation" of all the so-called 1st World Nations?

Who would be most likely voted "least favorite nation" of the all of the so-called 1st World Nations?

Which nations would be ranked as the top three worst nations of the 1st World?

Which nation has the most applications for citizenship and "green card" living privileges?

Which nation offers the best ready healthcare and welfare benefits to immigrants?

Which nation has a national policy of "political" asylum for those fleeing countries in which there is a real or perceived threat to one's "life, liberty and pursuit of income"?

thank you for answering this questionnaire....

Do you really believe Smith is going to be the next PM?

Yes, for a very simple reason. If our history proves one thing it is not that Oppositions so much win elections that Governments lose them. All IDS has to do is stand up and not suddenly come down with Tourette's Syndrome.

I am not trying to be confrontational, but I wish I could share your optimism. My admittedly cursory reviews of British media, even conservative papers, indicate the Tory party is in long-term decline.

In fairness it's mixed. The Telegraph has consistently supported IDS and saying he's doing the right things. And there have been times when the Tories caught Labour in the polls; the last local elections earlier this year saw some good gains for the Tories as well.

IDS need only wait for the Tonester and Labour to self-destruct, which is what historically Labour Governments do.

It's always the way, an irrational minority is more vocal than the sensible majority. I've heard a lot of people say things like "England is doomed in left wing hell" because all they see are the fools. Yet at the same time, when a foreigner looks at America, your fools - Carville, Clinton, et al, are always the loudest representatives of your country. It's a bit different now with President Bush in charge, of course.

But while there are problems, we have to approach it as if it is not the end of days - otherwise there is nothing to fight for. Overblown hysteria one way or another is unjustified. Just remaining calm, determined, forceful and persistent leads to victory. If we can maintain that, I have little doubt things will turn for both our countries.

Lets be clear, Sumner Murray Rothstein, now Sumner Redston, born Boston, MA in 1923 has spent his whole life attempting to disguise his jewishness. Those who know him well believe he would sell Palestinians the bullets to kill Sabras if he could make money on the deal.

I will say, that, while at Heathrow recently, I picked up several London papers, and read about Labor scandal after Labor scandal, the best of which was about some ludicrous Multiculti official losing his job after a drunken tirade against a couple of bobbies. These types of incidents can only help IDS.

No, this the REAL face of liberals. They hate America. At least here, they're open about it.

Correct.

It is amazing how liberals instinctively make the wrong choice in all their political decisions. The reason is: they hate a lot more than just America. They hate freedom. They hate freedom of anything.

The dominant liberals yearn for a world that consists of WORKERS (that's you and me) and LEADERS (that's them). The feudal system is good model for society in their mind and since this lines up perfectly with their friends from Islam there is a natural affinity between the two groups. Democracy and freedom are unknown in the world of Islam. To the Liberal establishment they are just a nuisance.

Nothing you can do or say will change their view on this. It is built into their soul. They believe they are the natural rulers of the world and that's just the way it is. Hillary is just the very best example of this that I can think of.

Precisely. And it was a similar tidal wave of idiocy that bounced John Major out of office in 1997. We need only be patient.

It is getting worse for Labour as time goes on, I must say.

Interestingly, I was listening to I think it was Michael Savage some months ago, when he started talking about Hillary's very favorite form of communism, and it is apparently Leninism, which according to him (I'm no expert on communism) is the sort in which the elite (Hillary et al) get to have all the perks and riches, no economic sacrifices for them, while the rest of us get to be the ones whose backs they walk upon. Lovely.

There is an old saying, "Wait long enough by the river, and the bodies of your enemies will come floating by". Evil has a tendency to turn in on itself and self destruct. Clinton will eventually be diagnosed with some STD and will end his days having to count the numbers of antibiotics he needs to take. Hillary will eventually be an old hag, irrelevant, washed up, bitter, sort of like Bella Abzug. James Carville is already on his way to the lunatic asylum. It takes time, but justice does catch up with these people. Now as for Saddam, yes, it's time to pick up the sword of justice because we can't wait for him to suffer the consequences of all the goats he's molested over the years. ;)

No, we've never had an ex-president who has behaved so shamelessly. It was always a point of honor that the previous one would retire gracefully and never comment on his successor. I can't remember ever hearing a comment in public from any previous president. What they may have thought or said in private was kept private.

But of course, why would anyone have expected decency from this most recent one we have to deal with?

I didn't expect decency from him. However I did expect something somewhat different - I thought with the loss of power that some of his aphrodesiac effect on the media would diminish. To a limited extent, it has, but not sufficiently to put him in the kind of obscurity that would eventually land him in the Betty Ford Centre. ;)

I may just be being impatient however. ;)

That I think I do understand. Most of the media is left wing, and Clinton is the perfect example of homo sinestra (sinister being the Latin word for "left" by the way).

And this is how: he had the chance to exercise power over others, and snobbishly tell them what to do, yet at the same time he didn't have to extend any self-discipline, and gorged himself on whatever desires he had whenever he had them. He supported infanticide, perversion and mendacity to the hilt; the left hating morality as they view it as being somehow insincere. He was the "new man" they wanted society to produce, writ large. And he was indeed starting to turn the culture - you cannot tell me that deceit becoming acceptable had no role in, say, the Enron scandal.

That is why the media will always love him in their hearts. Their new champion is Hillary. After all, she enabled Bill to be as bad as he was.

Oh, yes, the toon and his ilk were certainly starting to turn the culture, and they got us pretty far down the garden path, I think.

You can actually see it turning back now, with the current occupants of the WH leading by example, though there's a long way to go, I'm afraid.

And yes, Hitlery is the new darling, and we have Chelz to look forward to as well...
