The truth is there is only 1 party and it makes no difference who is in charge power decides who the president will be and what they will do not u people.

Comment Re: And It's Illegal to Videotape Police (Score 1) 489

what a country where the police is your enemy. people who justify murder because thats how police are and most of them are good like fuck. most of them do not try to kill for no reason. but that is not a way to gauge good cops from bad. any cop who abuses his power for any reason is a bad cop. i have had drinks with cops who were friends and seemed like decent people but a few years latter they got caught doing a rodney king job on a native man (in Canada) even if the guy had it coming thats not a cops job. the power gets to many of them in varying degrees.i do not believe most cops are good anymore especially in your police state.

How much better is it to have these when u have no place to sleep in a disaster than a trailer that never comes? what if you are not white in the land of the bullshit and the trailers go to to the better off and the white people first would u take this? What if the guy handing out trailers is looking to profit a little and u have no cash would take a shity place to sleep over nothing? i am guessing the new design will be better. so much bitching it is shity but it is shelter. shelter comes first then water then food.

I like Australian football and I respect the game but things are a bit different here. The few Australians that play in the U.S. are either place kickers or punters. Both would get knocked around like rag dolls if they decided to try to tackle anybody here. It's a completely different game.

juicing may have something to do with that players get heavier and die sooner than they did pre-juicing.

So the fear of radiation from a failing nuculer power plant is keeping America from building new plants to replace the old ones? what is the cutoff date for these old plants the day after they fail. btw if fukushima is your reason for not building a new power plant remember it took a mag.9.0 earthquake and a tsunami and failed later do to a fuel safety issue. chernobyl is no reason as it was the soviets they cared nothing for the environment or it's own people oh shit bad example just like america

well older farmers from just a few decades ago were not just farmers they had to have more skills to make a living. A (small farm) farmer had to have experience as a mechanic,wielder,plumber,electrician,carpenter and engineer/problem solver. I grew up on a small farm with old failing equipment.
