Comment Re:How racism? (Score 1) 578

The progressives have had power for 8 years, the wars started under conservative Bush. America loves being at war, it's been at war virtually continuously since it has existed.

The US is number one in gun massacres world wide, and number one in the developed world.

The immoral and corrupt love you, it's the sensible and caring people that hate you. I was once as a child a big fan of the US, however watching years of scumbag behaviour, particularly of conservatives has turned that right around.

I would have thought a true freedom loving Americam would hate free speech zones too. Shouldn't the whole country be a fee speech zone.

Typical denial and avoidance of reality.

During the Second World War it was often said that when the British bomb, the Germans hide, when the Germans bomb, the British hide, and when the Yanks bomb, everyone hides. If the USA has to poke its enormous military nose into other people's business, at least it might try to learn the difference between ally and enemy before it drops its damned bombs. Bloody idiots.

National identity is the kind of thing that stuffs the world up.
I can't understand those that feel proud of a geographical area they happen to live in, especially when they simultaneously destroy the environment that makes any place great to be.
The concept of patriotism is in my opinion, absurd.

Ahem. This.

  They are the direct link to the Harrison's sea clocks. Number 1, now in a private collection, belonged to the Time Museum, USA, until the museum closed in 2000 and its collection was dispersed at auction in 2004. Number 2 is in the Leeds City Museum. It forms the core of a permanent display dedicated to John Harrison's achievements, "John Harrison: The Clockmaker Who Changed the World" and had its official opening on 23 January 2014, the first longitude-related event marking the tercentenary of the Longitude Act. Number 3 is in the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers' collection.

Cue the usual conga line of outraged denialist morons, posting the same ridiculous and thoroughly debunked lies, and in desperation, resorting to the tried and true reds under the bed bullshit.
That so many supposedly intelligent posters don't accept the experts view, would be funny if it were not so tragically and dangerously stupid.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
