It's very clear that AI is going to impact every industry. I think that every…
The whole purpose of propaganda is to make the obvious seem obscure, or offensive.
( Stefan Molyneux )
UK prison cells are so crammed that open prisons are now being used for nasty criminals who should be detained on an island surrounded by man-eating crocodiles.
Cameron’s foreign policy disasters mirror the mess he’s created at home.
Libya is a deadly threat after the gung-ho Tory created ISIS-on-Sea just 300 miles from Europe.
In the EU we’re an ignored bystander.
Sabre-rattling on Russia is empty rhetoric after cuts left the military more than a few swords short of being properly equipped.
The chief Con, who voted for Blair’s Iraq War, repeats deadly mistakes.
( Kevin Maguire, 23.02.2015 )
Because prisons are over-flowing, the UK Government are ceaselessly begging judges and magistrates not to send anyone to jail unless they absolutely have to.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorises it and a moral code that glorifies it.
( Frederic Bastiat )
Eventually all things fall into place.
Until then, laugh at the confusion.
British troops are playing war games in Estonia in readiness for a possible Russian invasion of the Baltic republic.
I wondered what the warmongers would get up to when deprived of the Afghan show.
Now we know.

If you don’t believe in miracles.
Perhaps you have forgotten you are one.
The three most common motives for murder are greed, rage and love gone wrong.

Before you do anything, ask yourself, would an idiot do that?
If the answer is yes, then don’t do it.
Sometimes I think I’ve spent my whole life behind enemy lines.
( Jeane Moore )
Only an idiot would say, ‘There is no God’.
Because to say that, surely, you must first understand everything.
And only an idiot would claim they understand everything.
Do The Planners Have Any Idea What They Are Doing ?..
Will my generation be the last to remember London as a distinctively British city?
As I bicycled down Fleet Street towards St Paul’s, after a long absence from that part of the capital, I was shocked by how crowded with towers the eastern sky had become.
Once, Sir Christopher Wren’s serene dome ruled the horizon from all directions.
Now it is thrust into the background by overbearing imitations of Shanghai or Dubai.
Do the planners have any idea what they are doing?
( Peter Hitchens, 25.05.2014 )
Sugary soft drinks should carry a health warning, say experts.
Wine labels saying, ‘Caution, may contain alcohol’.
Nothing is too shameful in the world of business.
Nothing is too cynical in the world of politics.
The people in power do what they like, unless the people they exploit show they won’t stand for it.
( Paul Routledge, 30.05.2014 )
I get put in a changing room at Gap and clothes are passed to me under the door, a bit like feeding time at the zoo.
( UK Prime Minister David Cameron )
He’s a dodgy Prime Minister surrounded by dodgy donors.
( Ed Miliband, about David Cameron )
I tried boxing but didn’t like hitting people particularly, which is a bit of a problem.

Some people think that in order to be good Catholics, we have to be like rabbits.

Six million American citizens die each year due to the abortion holocaust.
( Rand Paul, 24.07.2013 )
Call me crazy, but I don’t think when the founders envisioned free speech, they meant ‘let corporations spend millions of dollars to buy elections in America’.
This is not how our elections should run.
( Al Franken )
The Government call it benefits when given to ordinary folk.
And expenses when they give it to themselves.
A sorrowful tale of our times.
After his benefits were cut, and facing eviction, Benjamin McDonald, 34, a father of three from Nelson, Lancashire, who suffered from depression, hanged himself in fields where he had played as a boy.
Think about this poor man next time Iain Duncan Smith boasts about cutting the welfare budget.
One man’s ideologically driven benefit sanctions is another man’s suicide.
( Paul Routledge, 13.03.2015 )
I was asked this question today.
‘Would Saudi Arabia allow a million Christians to settle in their country and then build churches?’
Margaret Thatcher’s Child Abusing Knights ..
Papers released in 2013 under the 30-year privacy rule showed civil servants repeatedly warned Margaret Thatcher to stop lobbying for her pal Jimmy Savile to be knighted.
This week we learned police warned her against knighting Cyril Smith as they were investigating claims of child abuse against him.
But she knighted him.
As we commemorate the 30th anniversary of the nation’s pitmen being starved into defeat by Thatcher, it makes you wonder if, in the 1980s, she was so busy getting off on abusing miners she failed to notice all the men around her doing the same to minors.
( Brian Reade, 14.03.2015 )
No society can legitimately call itself civilised if a sick person is denied medical aid because of a lack of means.
A community that excludes even one member is no community at all.
We are all visitors to this time, this place.
We are just passing through.
Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love.
And then we return home.
( Aboriginal proverb )
There is such beauty here.
The heat of the sun to warm you.
Food that springs out of the earth itself.
Man should want for nothing.
Yet he wants for everything.
Warriors are not what you think of as warriors.
The warrior is not someone who fights, for no one has the right to take another life.
The warrior for us, is the one who sacrifices himself for the good of others.
His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenceless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.
( Sitting Bull )
It’s hard to accept the truth when lies were exactly what you wanted to hear.
David Cameron is a feminist claims his Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan.
Tell that to the legions of women pushed into zero-hours contracts and low-paid work since he came to power.
It would be laughable if it weren’t so criminal.
( Paul Routledge, 13.03.2015 )
I have no time to argue with egos and small minds.
Some of us may be the grand-daughters or the great-grand-daughters of the witches they didn’t burn.
Don’t talk to me about privilege.
As a kid I lived well below the poverty line.
No matter where I am I won’t forget women’s struggle.

You can’t put your arms around a memory.
So give those you love and those you care about a big hug today.
If fifty million people say a foolish thing.
It is still a foolish thing.
( Bertrand Russell )
If minorities prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.
Russia does not need minorities.
Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’.
( Vladimir Putin )
A life of fear for many, trapped in their own homes at night when the cowardly, mindless morons come out to play, and with no prospect of help coming, ever.
Dare to defend yourself and you will either get your head kicked in, in front of your weeping family, or be arrested for ‘taking the law into your own hands’ by a useless, under-funded police force.
The confusion created when one’s mind over-rides the body’s desire to choke the living daylights out of some idiot or asshole who desperately needs it.
You cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.
( John F Kennedy )
Friends on Twitter you never meet.
But you can be touched by their soul, see the good in their heart, and feel the warmth of their being.
If one day you feel like crying, call me.
I can’t promise to make you laugh.
But I will cry with you.
Five Grand Buys You A Whole Day ..
At first glance, it didn’t look like much of a scandal.
Two 68 year-old codgers caught trying to earn a bit extra on the side.
Retired bus drivers?
Ex-miners who can’t get by on inadequate pensions?
Building workers unable to work outside any more?
Two former Cabinet ministers, currently earning (or being paid, at any rate) £67,000 a year plus lavish expenses, looking to line their pockets as retirement approaches.
Nothing is too good for the “workers”, of course.
Tory Sir Malcolm Rifkind, MP for the richest part of London, is in the market for a minimum of £5,000 for a morning or afternoon.
Fellow former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw comes a bit cheaper – five grand buys you a whole day.
That’s almost as much as the annual state pension for a single man.
( Paul Routledge, 27.02.2015 )
I want to live my life without stress and worries.
I don’t need to be rich and famous.
I just want to be happy.
When an election is near, to make themselves look good, the Government often creates a problem that causes fear, and then offers a solution.
You cannot escape.
In your nightmares I will find you.
UK Chancellor George Osborne and the Government has had nothing to do with falling inflation.
Petrol, food and energy are all cheaper because of global factors, such as an oil price slump, weather or plentiful harvests.
Be in no doubt, life is still grindingly tough for millions.
( Graham Hiscott, 18.02.2015 )
I know you believe you understand what you think I said.
But I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.
Would you rather speak to the person in charge?
Or the one who knows what’s going on?
War.. A massacre of people who don’t know each other, for the profit of people who know each other but don’t massacre each other.
( Paul Valery, 1871-1945 )
A Early Broken Promise ..
It is David Cameron and George Osborne who should go back to school – their sums don’t add up.
The Con-servative Premier and his Chancer of the Exchequer give the impression they’ve cut taxes – a pair of Buller Boys playing Lords Bountiful to a grateful nation.
The truth is, they increased taxes by £13.5billion.
The Tories’ record VAT hike was an early broken promise.
Another was a “jobs tax” National Insurance rise.
These raids mean they’ve taken far more with one hand than they have given back with the other by upping the point income tax starts.
But don’t take my word for it.
The Institute for Fiscal Studies lays out the details beautifully.
Tax hikes and benefit cuts, including pay packet-boosting cash for workers, are two reasons why a typical family is £1,127 worse off under this Tory-led Government.
We’re not all in this together, yet Cameron and Osborne sound as if they’ve created a land in which we wade knee-deep in milk and honey.
( Kevin Maguire, 02.02.2015 )
Extremists confuse a war on their religion with not always getting what they want.
( R.W. Hutchison, 1922-2006 )
When people ask why I have a problem with religion, it’s hard to come up with a single answer.
( Florence Emily Hookins, 1896-1962 )
Science simply marvels at God’s work and then documents it.
It’s odd that the word ‘atheist’ even exists.
I don’t play golf, is there a word for non-golf players?
Do they gather and strategise?
I can’t do that.
I can’t gather around and talk about how much everybody in the room doesn’t believe in God.
( Neil DeGrasse Tyson )
The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
( Nikola Tesla )
Humans with no compassion have no right to call themselves ‘human’.
( Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008 )
Love, manners, morals, respect, and common sense.
Just some of the things money cannot buy.
Compassion is at the heart of everything we do.
It is the finest quality we possess.
( Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008 )
Every child should be taught gardening.
Because food is very important, isn’t it?
If you are absent during my struggle.
Don’t expect to be present during my success.
( Will Smith )
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
( Aldo Leopold )
We have conquered all but our own darkness.
Humans are the weapons of mass destruction
Staff at Job Centres came into this job to help people back to work.
And now they feel their job is to trip people up.
( Mark Serwotka, boss of PCS union that represents Jobcentre workers )
Never underestimate the healing power of listening to your favourite music playing full blast while jumping around the house like an idiot.
When you learn to accept instead of expect, you will have fewer disappointments.
Someone just mistook me for Boris Johnson and I wish I was joking.
