I was just watching the news over here in Oz lastnight and was absolutely disgusted and gobsmacked by the news of all these CEO's of big company's and even a Judge who lied under oath who has been disgraced, yet he still gets a pension of $200,000 a year even though he may go to prison! The CEO's are getting even more, the Telstra CEO, an American (not that I have anything against Americans) who is leaving, is getting a $3000,000 hand shake when he leaves, yet Telstra share dividends won't be… Continue

MUNICH - German dissident Horst Mahler has been sentenced to six years in prison for "Volksverhetzung" (racial incitement). The symbolically significant number of years imposed for "anti- Semitic hate speech" stemmed from his refusal to recognize the Jewish Holocaust®, which he described as "the biggest lie in world history."

Now that this information is official, the morons who said he did not really mean it when he voted for warrantless wire taping can stop with the hero worship. The reason the government says, "can't tell you State's Secrets" is those who run it have so much outrageous crap going on that if we knew the extent of it we would bring down the government.

It seems that the police are ticketing people for anything and everything. In this article the man was struck by a vehicle and was hurt badly. He broke a small law that many have broken repeatedly, jaywalking. Adding insult to his injuries he was ticketed. I think he learned his lesson without needing the ticket. I wouldn't be surprised if he and the women he was escorting had been doing this for years. The driver of the vehicle was not paying attention to the road, especially at night with a… Continue
