You are contradicting yourself and that is very amusing. You have criticized Obama. You are entitled to do so, but why do you do that when according to yourself, you can't.

Politics is always a game. I don't expect you to understand that

I would have to say both because I usually don't finish them. They're definitely amusing to an extent and then become so unreal and as gibberish that I become disinterested. It's as if he's just typing words beside each other which make no sense. Almost as if a computer being scrambled or something--it's a little strange.

It reminds me of a car wreck, you begin to watch out of curiosity to see what happened, yet after a second or so.. you just keep moving.

What gives you the right to criticize your neighbours and to dictate them how to dress, how to think,how to punish their children ? Maybe you are thinking you are the envoy of God with the mission to civilise the other countries ,meaning : they must follow your exemple ?

And you should be the last to speak of freedom of speech ,because you want to deny the majority of the world the freedom to live like they want to live,you want that they live like you do .
Has Belgium come out of hiding yet as Northern Europe seems fairly safe, the closest thing to death I have faced so far has been alcohol poisoning in Finland.

Anyway:

“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”
― Aristotle

Or if you would prefer something more contemporary...


“Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body; it calls attention to the development of an unhealthy state of things. If it is heeded in time, danger may be averted; if it is suppressed, a fatal distemper may develop."

[New Statesman interview, 7 January 1939]”
― Winston S. Churchill

Criticism is not dictating anything it is simply demonstrating a point of disagreement and if you can not handle that you are on the wrong planet.

Besides,what bad you are saying of other countries will not change their policy,it will only harden their attitude ,because they will consider this as an insult : no one in Poland asked you for criticizing the Polish government, and what you are saying about Poland will not change the policy of the Polish government .

Freedom of speech stops at the border.
He may be stuck at his border.

STOP THIS 'SOFT ON TERRORISM' CRAP

"Nobody is 'soft' on terrorism. Not even terrorists - they're BIG on terrorism. But NOBODY in the west is 'soft' on terrorism!

Anytime someone in politics suggests that there may be a more effective way of fighting terrorism than playing live-action 'Call of Duty', the Right calls that person 'soft' on terrorism. As if using brainpower instead of firepower, or along with firepower, is the equivalent of giving terrorists a Swedish massage.

While blowing things up may be spiritual Viagra for armchair warriors, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WORKING!

Anyway, I saw a headline in the Toronto Sun, it pissed me off, and here's my response."

Oddly enough I don't agree, I think we are soft on terrorism.
The reality is we are not really confronting ISIS anywhere we are relying on a mixture of untrustworthy allies, borderline terrorist groups, opposition states and a small bunch of stateless fighters to take on ISIS and with the exception of the Kurds there isn't one of these groups that doesn't have an agenda that will put us at odds with them as soon as the fight with ISIS ends.

On the home front we refuse to take on hate speech and incitement due to a fear of offending someone and as soon as some one does try and confront if someone else starts bleating on about "free" speech.

Basically we are doing nothing to reduce the causes of extremism on either the foreign or domestic fronts.

Absolutely spot on Monty, I couldn't agree more.

Anjem Choudary was arrested for encouraging ISIS support, yet the scum bag is out on bail. The bastard should be in jail.
