    The Tea Parties and the OWS protesters should find some common ground on this issue....

    This entire thing has gotten way too little publicity.

    Doesnt surprise me at all, the housing market in the UK was destroyed and prices have never successfully corrected themselves because politicians where permitted to play the market with public money buying second homes or paying off their mortgages, it lead to obscene escalations in house prices.

    The conservative response? They are going to cut off all the claimants receiving money and they'll force an exodus of benefits dependents to Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the North of England.

    Getting really close to believing that the UK conservatives are a dictatorship of city bankers.

    It would be ironic if Martha Stewart ran for Congress and won.

    They should, but they won't, because they're too intent on demonizing each other.

    They got her for lying under oath, if I'm not mistaken.

    Bribery should be considered treason because this undermines the integrity of the system, and this is absolutely bribery. We should be discussing the preferred method of execution.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
