Friday Finale

"These are the headlines that try mens' souls..." to paraphrase Tom Paine. And although these are the headlines of our day, they show some of the important dynamics and flows that are shaping the times, hence giving us a chance to scrape away accumulated brain-goop with a couple sharp spoons!

Thank Goodness Its Friday!

Heya, thanks for the comment too. I felt I should have commented on your last PodCast but I didnt know what to say.

Anyway, I love your PodCasts for a few of reasons, and one being that they make the serious situation we are in quite funney! It is amazing that it is all real. I have downloaded a few of your PodCasts like your 20th March news summary and "Kill Americans". I hope America holds out and stays strong in these times.

Happy Saturday. I will be at the March for Free Expression in London today. :) There is a march against ours! Can you believe it?! Talk about hypocracy. Our march will be far larger though (it had better be).

Anyway, keep up the good work...

ps. Love the accent!
pps. The podcast link doesnt work on this post.

Can you believe what they did to the March for Freedom of Expression?

One of the slogans:
"Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having." -- Lord Justice Sedley

Sounds good, right?

Muslims are Welcome: No Danish cartoons, please. - "In practice, Muslims who wholeheartedly endorse our statement of principle, as quoted below by Peter Tatchell in his superb essay, who abhor the threats made against Danish cartoonists and believe people should have the right to publish things they themselves find offensive or abhorrent would be UNABLE to come to our rally on Saturday, because to be surrounded by these cartoons, now, in the present context when the BNP are using them as a rallying point, would be intolerable.

So I now appeal to people not to bring the cartoons on T-shirts or placards."

Incase of offence, you see. Meanwhile Islamic groups are trying to get the police to arrest anyone with the cartoons. Funeny when you look at their protest in comparison. What a dissapointment for the United Kingdom.

Atleast they say they are going to display the dreaded cartoons in a forum somewhere... I recon you know how I feel about this one. I didnt go in the end as I dont support a free speech-with-BUT's rally. :s

Welcome to the United Kingdom!

Right you are, Steven!

Not only do they whine that WE MUSLIMS have the right to STOP YOU from thinking anything offensive, but we have the right to STOP YOU from SAYING anything offensive, (like a simple report of the dead and wounded at Bali, Beslan, Manhattan, Madrid... all that reporting is "islamophobic"!)

Thanks for the headsup. I'll fix the link.

And, as a matter of principle, America determined long ago that 'offensive' is in the eye of the beholder. Perceiving something as 'offensive' is your right and prerogative, BUT you (or I, or anyone else) DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT to legislate YOUR perceptions into law; no right to ABRIDGE MY THOUGHTS with YOUR PERCEPTIONS!

For example: "I find white people offensive. Therefore you must eliminate white people!"

Same broken reasoning applies to 'Danish cartoons' and 'blacks' and 'Jews' and 'Gypsies' and 'homos' and 'old people' as it does to 'white people!'

"Hey, lissen up people! I'm one of the march organizers for responsible freedom of speech, so I've gotta let you know what our guidelines are.

If you have a question, ask one of the March Guides, they have the yellow arm-bands. Don't speak unless THEY give you permission.

Don't bring any copies of the Dread Cartoons of Blasphemy, at least, none bigger than 2" by 2 inches.

Don't insist that Freedom of Speech is an American right, even in America we don't have the 'right' to shout 'FIRE!' in an unburning, crowded building, so by extension, we have no 'right' to report the murders and mass-killings and child decapitations around the world, because these will inflame Islamophobia, -no, really! People get SCARED of Muslims, who only want to help us convert or submit to our Muslim betters, dying is a poor third choice.

What? Castration? No, you can say what you want, just get permiss-

Say again? No, this is NOT Bowdlerization.

Hey! Where y'all going? Wait! We need you to support this- Hey, STAY HERE!
