    Coss Seems to slight confusion on how we both define "Social Welfare" but I will give you my definition based on the UK model which I happen to be au fait with. Whilst Health, Education, Pensions and Defense etc come from UK Central Government Expenditure they are not what are defined as "Social Welfare" or "Benefits. These include, but are not limited to, Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, Child Benefit, Disability Living Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, Job Seekers Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, Unemployment Benefit and so on, there are approximately over 60 different benefits which can be claimed, and the benefits scroungers know them the best. There are people in the UK who have never done a days work in their life, never paid into the system yet are taking from it. Millions of Immigrants flocking to the UK being given Social Housing and many of the 60 odd benefits I have mentioned, Like WTF is all that about, and you wonder why I got pissed with my, the Tax Payers. money being squandered by successive governments , hence the reason why I packed my bags and fucked off.

    "is there will always be people who take the piss out of the system" Yes and sometimes the cost of those people is worth bearing, for the good of the whole. A year and some months ago, I had a stroke. Because we have an efficient Ambulance system, I got not one, but two rides to two different hospitals in very quick time, straight into the operating room and they pulled the clot. Kept me in over night, I reckon I'm 98~99% back to normal. Slightly better than normal as I've taken up Kayak fishing as a health kick and I eat a lot of primo fish and I am fitter as a result. All of this without regard to my financial circumstances or whether or not I am taking the piss... I am alive and grateful. Looking after yer peasants is not always a bad thing, indeed if you don't look after yer peasants, you'll be lynched eventually.

    Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair after arriving in a hotel in Manchester went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness. The barman said, "That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary." Taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "We do try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "We have the cheapest beer in England". "That is remarkable value", Michael comments. "I see you don't have a glass, you'll need one of ours. That will be £3 please." O'Leary scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra £2. If you'd pre-booked it would have cost £1." O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see you've brought your laptop" added the barman. "That wasn't pre-booked either, that's another £3." O'Leary was so incensed and his face was red with rage. "I've had enough! I insist on speaking to a manager!" "Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00 am and 9.01am every morning, Monday to Tuesday. Calls are free, unless answered, then there is a charge of only £1 per second". "I will never use this bar again". "OK but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1."

    In case the subject on the left is his "girlfriend" any further penalisation should be prescinded from in the name of humanity.

    I am Confused ... How Can China be classed as "The Free World? AFAIK the "Free" comes from Free Speech, Free Press, Freedom of Assembly and Freedom of Association, not traits synonymous with the Chinese Regime

    Here is a dark little secret in the black community. MLK's family for the most part is like the Black Royal Family ...till the Obama's but many blacks don't respect most of the King family. Why? They have pretty much fought among themselves for the financial spoils of the MLK family name. https://www.cnn.com/2015/01/13/us/martin-luther-king-family-feud/index.html http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-mlk-family-20150119-story.html Fox news ONLY invites those who will support their narrative. MLK was a Republican I think, not sure, anyway, does his neice speak for him and the family? Dexter King does most of the public speaking on behalf of the family. Conservatives (and Liberals) often get people from the group they are discussing to act as cover for them. That's politics 101. Larry Elder, More than a few of the King family are viewed by some as sell outs to his legacy. Just being frank about how they are viewed by some, not all blacks, but some. They, as a group, tend to avoid any issues Blacks as a collective are concerned about such as police brutality, etc. If you noticed there wasn't a peep out of any of them during any of the high profile incidents that garnered national attention. I'm not saying they should have but it's par for the course for them to stay out of anything that will put them at odds with the establishment.

    The fact is that Obama has deported more peoiple than any other President and at a rate faster than even Trump. Dems don't talk about it because they want the latino vote, Republicans don't talk about it because it takes away the narrative Obama was letting in all kinds of illegals. The dream act and other items only "rewarded' for lack of a better word, those who were in the country as kids or a very long time, were crime free, etc and also those who were in the military fighting wars. https://www.wnyc.org/story/no-one-thought-barack-obama-would-deport-more-people-any-other-us-president/

    I have friends who live off their US bank accounts via ATM cards. They just don't want to bring that much money over here. They bring over only as much as they need. They are the ones affected by this.

    My TV is more on Fox News than CNN actually because I want to know the talking points. I know CNN's talking points as they pretty much mirror my own. I also do a lot of listening on Youtube of conservative voices like Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell and even white supremacists like Jared Taylor and Richard Spencer. You can't adequately deconstruct a view if you don't know what the main tenets and reasoning is. It's very, very tough to listen to it sometimes but it helps immensely in personal conversations on politics, culture, etc, which I try to avoid but sometimes wade in.

    I was going to post this under its own heading and apologies if this seems like I'm taking over a thread but I love history and WW2 remains a fascinating subject for me. https://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/12-interesting-ways.html?fbclid=IwAR3SgAvqneDsf8gcijmLJ0RA2bLLX6WsgoyOuu52q5NE1ZIpNr6Kk1DBYNo

    Less then 2 weeks to the elections and the Dems are pulling out all the stops! Another invasion coming thru Mexico, pipe bombs being sent to some Dem leaders... Do the Dems have a platform for the people of the USA? They only have "we hate Trump" and that is well worn out.

    I hope they don't do what the government did in America and get paid off by the rich to make the pot business pretty much a rich man's business to get into. It takes a few hundred thousand to even think about running a fairly decent pot business in Colorado or California. Also, why must you have a clean criminal background? Because its to keep the ones who were arrested for possession out of the business. You can be a former felon and open pretty much any business you want, even run for public office and become the President of the U.S. actually but not pot? Why?

    But no one knew of her private, non public personality. She was a total break from previous first ladies. A professional modern day woman. Maybe that's it. Carter was not personable by all accounts. Tip O'Neal, the then Speaker of the House, a Democrat couldn't stand Carter but got along very well with Reagan. Nixon was stiff as hell from all accounts. Not too easy to get along with and that's easy to believe. So, it can't be just that. Hillary represents something. And Bill got elected by a landslide twice with her as his First Lady. She got elected statewide as Senator in NY. There is something, visceral that I personally don't see. She she should have sewn up the '08 primaries and Democrat many white working class males who would never, ever imagine voting for a black man for president chose Obama, over her. If it weren't for her machinations and the Dem party machinations, Bernie would have easily won the Democratic primary so I consider it really twice men voted against her and a higher than expected number of women as well. So, I'm not putting it down to just men. She had far more support among black women than even white women. Even Democratic white women. In terms of experience, intelligence and knowledge of the issues, she was the most prepared to be President than any of the candidates in both parties that ran in '16. Objectively speaking. I have come to the conclusion there is nothing concrete about the hatred for her. It is what it is.

    Hillary was hated very early on in the Clinton administration. Well before the Monica Lewinsky scandal. And men weren't all that supportive of Monica Lewinsky either. It was a right wing issue. NOW the women's group gave Bill a pass I recall and at the time I noted their hypocrisy. Had it been a Republican they would have gone into uber meltdown. But Bill Clinton was supportive of women's issues in policy even though he was sexist privately. I think the main reason the Clinton national healthcare bill failed was in large part due to the instant hatred of her by the GOP and the men in the Democratic party weren't too fond of her either but she was one of them so it was always lukewarm. I personally don't see her as any more phony than your average politician. By all accounts she is smart and knows the issues well and becomes well versed in them. Its something else and maybe she represents all the ball busting "typical" American women that has driven many of us to Thailand, Philippines and Cambodia. Just a guess.

    Hi, "They will face no more than 10 years' jail [and/or] a fine of no more than a million baht (about £23,555)," What the fuck is wrong with Thai penalties? Certainly the kid deserves to be penalized, but 10 years in prison for spraying some paint? Yet the penalty for driving without a license and killing 9 people is only 100 hours of community service. Sanuk!
