Hmm about where I think I am, although I did vote conservative when I lived in England. Labour leaving a note saying 'good luck we spent all the money' still rankles me.

To be fair ALL politicians act like wankers, you only have to look at the people going no politics to know as a country we are fucked! Especially the Milibands and that huge cock Ed Balls.

If they ever win an election in the UK, I will gladly give up my nationality and seek domicile residence in any other country, maybe Ireland as my Nan was Irish....

Another disturbing day for our country http://www.bbc.co.uk...ngland-19059127

17 year old boy arrested for tweeting to Tom Daley that "he let his father down." Horrible thing to say but to be arrested for it is just crazy.

Ridiculous isn't it? You'd think instead of arresting people for saying some childish things the police would actually do their jobs and arrest people for breaking the law.

A country where the government is over protective of its citizens, and interferes in their daily lives.

Feel Obama will & should be re-elected, could care less right now bout drone attacks, yes they mis-fire and kill innocent people but they are gettin the job done against Al-Qaeda.

all im for right now is doestic affairs, and boosting our econmy. we worry wayy too much about foreign relations, and what goin on in frnce, thailand, russia, yes its important but we gota protect hime first. If obama can win re-election we will prob re-gain control in senats, and house. Obama has ben wayy to cautious of other people's views and oer-protective for his hope of being eleceted again. nw he can wat-evs and push his policies through.

we need to re-educate labor force for the jobs that have gone to china are never coming back. invest even more in education, produce more and more cases to IWC against China, not only becaus we have been winning so many of the cases but becasue it sets more even playing field and so what if China are growing, we have to stand up to them too. raise taxes on rich, i mean why the hell is Warren Buffet payin 15% taxes and the ever shrinking middle class 20%!?!?!? (yes it abama's fault to a tee, but when/if he gets second term he needs to change it.)

theres sooooo much more, but thats just for starters, i can write whole book on why wall-street needs regulation but i'll spare the boredum, hahahahaha

I think you'd feel differently if those innocent people were Americans or even Europeans. On any account, the "job" is much more complicated than the western media makes it out to be, because the USA-Al Qaeda relationship is very difficult to understand. For example, right now, while the US is fighting Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, they are at the same time heavily arming and funding them in Syria.

Not to mention the fact that Al Qaeda isn't even that strong anymore. Well in comparison to a decade or two ago. The ends do not justify the means with these predator drones. What is the point of their existence is they attack both military enemies and civillians? Shouldn't the protection of civillains be prioritised over the elimination of foe?

we are not HEAVILY funding thrm first off. but they have finally taken that step, to help in some way, it only started couple days ago.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444405804577561482242140956.html

its history simply repeating itself again and i for one wanted no part in the syrian mess not only because of the unknown rebels but because also russia and china are supporting the regime...

and with the drone attacks, we'll just end it there no need to continue on that touchy issue.

Well the funding part, tbf, is not done with your own money (since you don't have any :P ) but with KSA and Qatar's and the rest of the Arabian gulf. The arming has been going steadily and heavily for more than 6 months now. I know this because half of the weapons are delivered from US military bases in the middle east to Al-Qaeda in Syria through Lebanon. Literally every day there is news of mini-battles on our border between smugglers and the Syrian army. There have even been a couple of ships caught packed with weapons and that is saying a lot since in Lebanon ANYTHING can pass.

What the fuck is wrong with America's tax system?

30% flat rate for everyone earning more than $200 a week, up to 40% for anyone earning up to $9999 a week. 50% for anyone earning more than 10000 a week.

There's trillions in taxes that can be claimed. Follow the Australian model (which is excessive, tbh.) and tax 200% on cigarettez and alcohol. At least until the US government can meet its liabilities.

tomake it easier its this.....the wealthy remain wealth and the FADING middle class is left to support the country. Obama made a huge mistake gifting the Republicans (who are notorious for supporting million and billionaires).another year of Bush tax cuts shake my head.

our tax system is crap, and a switch to the European system is one im border-line on. i mean we are ther ONLY industrialized country that doesnt have centralized healthcare system. (innit that citizens dont have to pay for healthcare system) the only ones. <_< if we made the top 1% pay their "fair share" (Obama slogan for new campaign) we would be in a wayy better economic position than we are currently. The republicans claim that we should not tax the wealthy because they will use that money to create jobs when they do not! they ship more and more to China and buy bigger yachts and houses.
