It's extraordinary how living here, people just come to accept that the murder of thousands of people a year is just part of the normal fabric of life.

I imagine ritual stake (or should that be steak?) burnings appeal to your dark sense of humour!

The Brits are still shaking from the first episode of GUNPOWDER where the actual facts about the plot were shown in truly horrific detail in the first episode.

A young Catholic priest is hung,drawn ,and quarters,and a woman is stripped naked and then ''pressed'-in graphic detail. (pressed mean't a small stone was placed at the base of her spine ,then a large wooden board put over her body ,upon which enormous weights are then placed until she dies.) People complained in their hundreds to the BBC. Seems that burning the 'Guy' on a bonfire was kind in comparison.

Well in comparison to South Africa I guess it's relatively calm in the USA .if you take size of population into consideration.

They suffer +- 51 murders,475 rapes PER DAY. As they say in the USA..' You do the math'

And another one, in Texas. I can't even say 'unbelievable' any more, because it's all too believable and familiar.

WTF?

Tell me again why having an armed citizenry is making us more free?

Simples. Makes you free to shoot anyone you want, anywhere you want and in most cases with several weapons of your choice.

Does this apply to USCs living in Canada too? If not...why not? I am entitled to my freedoms.

20+ slaughtered in a Texas church and it doesn’t make lead story on the Beeb news, Her Maj’ tax avoidance does instead.

What a fecked up world it is.

Sorry, you left the promised land so you can't just do what you want but you might be able to call in an air strike from the US to help you. Do you have any oil by any chance?

I believe Canada is sitting on the world’s largest oil reserves. Should I worry that the US may invade...or should I be pleased because then I will get my freedoms back?
