    Default Interesting Perspective

    This guy's "Common Sense" peices are always entertaining. I thought this one could be appreciated by non-US peoples.

    LMFAO, I didn´t understand every word, but I know now why they say Fox is a "little" biased towards Bush.
    Yes, our economy is bad, but that´s not because of Iraq, it was bad before already.
    I think I like Al Jazeera more than Fox, although I understand even less there.

    GARCIN: I "dreamt," you say. It was no dream. When I chose the hardest path, I made my choice deliberately. A man is what he wills himself to be.
    INEZ: Prove it. Prove it was no dream. It's what one does, and nothing else, that shows the stuff one's made of.
    GARCIN: I died too soon. I wasn't allowed time to - to do my deeds.
    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    Does anyone actually believe this tripe?
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Why not? Im laughing at how no one can point out the lies. It looks like nothing more than the usual smear the right or Fox campaign with nothing to back it up but a haughty attitude. Again what facts did he mistate?

    Why? Over here you would both be raging liberals


    ...its whole premise is just.....well ridiculous.....
    You keep saying this but it seems you just cant back it up with reason.

    Well it was very funny...as someone said "is it a spoof?".....and it seems that you are the only one here getting worked up about this...personally I couldnt care less...lifes just too short
    Im not worked up about it. I think it was very clever. You guys seem to be so upset you cant even address the facts. No its not a spoof, its serious. Neil says thisd kind of suff all the time. Its my favorite part of his show. The other 98% of his show is about stocks, bonds and the economy.

    Ok mate....I'll ask a question to you personally

    Do you belive this? ...or are you making a point?

    Also I find your (uninformed) assertion that the English conservatives are just clones of JAG and his 'happy clappy' bunch xtreamley offensive...that is your right however to remain ignorant of UK politics

    I believe hes stating facts yes. Also its he whos making a point not me. I just find the irony amusing while you dismiss it as nonsense.

    Also I find your (uninformed) assertion that the English conservatives are just clones of JAG and his 'happy clappy' bunch xtreamley offensive...that is your right however to remain ignorant of UK politics
    Now now lets not get touchy here. Even if I knew nothing of UK politics I would no your no Jag clone. Im just stating that over here you would be considered liberal or moderate. No need to attack me as uniformed. I certainly didnt want to lump you in with Jag. Your right my apologies. I could imagine my response if someone did that to me
