"boy i’m in a great mood!"

"oh, please. you can’t REALLY be in a great mood. there are people out there who just got raises. people just got married. people are being reunited with their families right now. how dare you say you’re happy."

The equivalent of someone saying you can’t be sad because other people have it worse than you.

yes

My Thoughts on the Referendum

So today Scotland decided that it will stay part of the union and in all honesty I’m left with very mixed feelings. 

See I grew up in Bradford, West Yorkshire and I still live there 9 months a year. For those of you who don’t know Bradford recently became the official most dangerous place to live in Britain. In the last 10 years the city has been plagued by rioting, racial tension and soaring crime rates and driving through it you can clearly see buildings in various states of decay and racially segregated semi-ghettos. 30 years ago in the famous miners strikes the working class people of Yorkshire were starved, beaten and sacked into subjugation by the Thatcher Government and the employment rates and economy in the region are still reeling. West Yorkshire has the 4th largest population of all English districts and Yorkshire as a whole (the four old ridings combined) has a population greater than Scotland and an economy twice that of Wales.

The reason I bring this up is that despite their huge potential and rich history as the manufacturing centres of Britain Yorkshire and the North East enjoy no real powers of self government or determination. Despite the economic slump and crisis here caused by Westminster no extra money is channelled here to rebuild the damage, in fact according to the deputy prime minister 95% of the regions taxes go straight to London and judging by the state of things not a lot of it comes back.

In turn the reason I bring this up is this; Scotland has both of these things. The Scottish Parliament allows the Scottish people extensive rights and abilities of self determination within Scotland and The Barnett Formula grants the Scottish people £1,600 a head more in public spending than the English people.

My question is simple. Why?

I am by no means saying the Scots don’t deserve these things, I’m saying if we can give them to Scotland isn’t it time that the neglected corners of England also get their fair share of the union’s gains?

food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.

the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die

“Last November the Activist Post ran a story about the propensity of police officers killing civilians. Stated was the following:
"Since 9/11, and the subsequent militarization of the police by the Department of Homeland Security, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by US police officers. The civilian death rate is nearly equal to the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq. In fact, you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist.”
That statistic is alarming enough considering if the 4,489 American soldiers killed in combat in Iraq constitute a condition of war, then the killing of 5,000 American civilians by United States police departments ought to be viewed as a war on we the People by our very own government.
…[The fact is] a cop is far more likely… to kill you than you are to kill a cop. Stated another way, when an officer comes into contact with you, you are far less of a threat to them than the perception our culture proliferates. The police are, in fact, more of a threat to YOU.
The idea that police have an incredibly dangerous job is what we Southerners call a tall-tale, a stretch of the truth to bolster an ego unwilling to accept mediocrity. Not to take away from what many fair-minded officers do every day, but as those stubborn things called facts would have it, policing is less dangerous than farming, fishing, logging, and trash collecting, as well as six other professions.  
Now is the time to burst the cop myth and to stop giving them the deference to murder our friends and family in the street.”
