Behaving Wisely

If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear they say. Once again our draconian anti-terror laws are being abused in ways that we all foresaw and the government of the time promised would not happen.

Even Superman Plays Video Games

I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people. But the First Amendment limits what we can do about video games and the Second Amendment to the Constitution limits what we can do about guns.

- U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander

Just let those words sink in for a moment: "Video games is a bigger problem than guns"! Because video games affect people!? Guns obviously have no affect on people, that's why we hand them out to our armed forces. Oh, hang on a moment, now I realise his mistake — he was thinking about Superman, guns do have no affect on Superman.  Even Superman plays video games!

Now Panic

Parent Culture

Picked this up on Chortle: John Cleese has claimed London is ‘no longer an English city’. In an interview on Australian TV, the Fawlty Towers star said the ‘parent [ie British] culture’ had all-but vanished from the streets of the capital. Interviewed to promote a show at Sydney Opera House, [...]

Shoot the fucking lot of them

Still, at least the police managed to arrest some kid for writing something nasty on Facebook because it might incite a riot in Glasgow too. Way to make a stand, as usual they avoid having to deal with real criminals on the streets. The comments section of Guido Fawkes blog has been a fun read the last few days:

Classic Clarkson

They can’t understand why they are taxed at 50% on their income and then [...]

What a completely fucked up country we live in, I can’t even summon the words to describe how depressing this is; five years seems a lot given the pathetic sentences you hear being handed out to real criminals. A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years [...]
I'm Getting a Gun

I’m getting a Gun

I found this comic from Dork Tower in my bookmarks while I was clearing out a few I no longer use. I have no idea how I found it originally, but it made me laugh seeing it again!

Obey

A referendum? you don’t want to do it like that! Sit down! Do as I say! Don’t speak up!

Victims?

I’ve been reading in the news about two sweet innocent little boys, whose lives are in danger, their parents believe they will be dead within 4 weeks, how horrible. But wait; are these not the same evil shits that killed that little kid a few years back? Nah – can’t be, surely they were locked [...]

Sniper

Am I the only person getting really hacked off with this general election thing, I just can’t escape it; websites, television, radio, billboards and even their cars with the mega-phones on the roof. What I wouldn’t give for a good sniper rifle. It’s just a giant popularity contest really; surely [...]
