Or i could beat myself over the head with a paddle and get much the same response.

Drugs don't like having their opinions challenged, and MP's have had so much propaganda as life-destroying evil things that must be eradicated, they won't back down now.


Looks much better this way :-)

How's this for first class PR?

There's an echo in here.

Missed that one, sorry.

What chance has change got when ideas float to the surface & someone attempts to try something, only to be told it won't work?

Just for once, how about helping the kid to prove whether his theories right or theirs are, rather than spout off about flaws!

Absolutely disgusting! The UK for example can send India £340 million in aid, send Pakistan over £300 million for "security" in the fight against terrorism, yet we see this: - "However, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday made another urgent appeal for funds to help fight the disease, saying a $1bn trust fund he launched last month had received only $100,000."

Well, first off, you could try writing to the local Environmental Health office & after getting the usual reply,
fire off a complaint to your local police division, & again after getting the usual reply,
Write to your MP.

Lynn you stated on the first post that this is out of science fiction movie. Well guess what its turning into a 3 stooges film fest.

Exactly. The movie was "Outbreak".

One even earlier than that & a thought provoking one.

The Andromeda Strain


Thanks Sirius!

I've watched the old and new one.
Then there is "Contagion". Don't watch that Movie.

That bad then?

Obama upsets Americans again

Edit:
No matter how bad things get, there are always some that make $$$$$...

Hot off the press

The timebomb is ticking away nicely

Co-ordination does help...

..."It has emerged that when coalition planes launched their mission in Syria on 23 September, no-one saw fit to tell President Obama's new allies on the ground."

"One last go"

You're not going to get it boyo, so why all the B/S?

"For Labour Gareth Thomas, shadow Europe minister, said: "David Cameron's own officials have already apparently poured cold water on these latest headlines, dismissing it not as a proposal, a policy, or a plan, but merely as speculation."

A Prime Minister should not be speculating!

Cameron said: Britain, I know you want this sorted so I will go to Brussels, I will not take no for an answer and when it comes to free movement - I will get what Britain needs."

So why are you afraid to put your money where your mouth is Davey boy...

..."But Mr Cameron has declined to state whether he would be prepared to back a British exit if he does not get the concessions he wants, insisting he is confident of success in the negotiations."

So when you come back with empty hands, will you step down?

Or will you try to fool the country a la Neville Chamberlain?

I still say that one should concentrate on their own country first before castigating another!

Nuff said!

Further proof that Brussels is well bloated

What has that got to do with the EU?

Have you ever seen a "slim" politician?

Yeah, most of the politicians I know are pretty slim. You haven't?

Merkel
UK's 3 brass monkeys
Salmond
Kim Jung Un
Putin

If you think that lot are slim, no wonder your lot have trouble keeping their fingers in the dykes.

me thinks that tobacco companies are in a panic.
With the advent of e-cigarettes anyone still smoking tobacco is harbouring
a death wish and committing a slow suicide one pack at a time.
Within 2 weeks of me quitting tobacco, and getting a nicotine fix from e-cigs,
lung function, as measured by a spirometer, increased by 25%, all at 10% of the cost of tobacco.
As smoking is more than just an addiction to nicotine, e-cigs satisfy most of the non-nicotine
based functions of a cigarette. ( ie oral fixation, keeping the hands busy, and
deep breathing, which by itself stimulates the Vagus nerve causing relaxation.)
If tobacco companies lose sales to e-cigs then governments loose tax Euros and
they'll have to make up the difference through other products, or try to make e-cigs illegal.
Guess where all the talk is concentrated now? Banning nicotine based e-cigs.
That "Yes Prime Minister" segment isn't far off the mark.

Another good thing about the e-cigs is that i control the nicotine content and can quite easily reduce it down to zero.

This post just doesn't seem to jibe with a previous one of yours...

I guess it's a good thing i fly the flag of Uruguay.
It's all perfectly legal, and it's all good.


How are you able to smoke your "pot" without the use of tobacco?

A Cadburys Special

Mr Cadbury met Miss Rowntree on a Double Decker. It was After Eight.
They got off at Quality Street.
He asked her name "Polo, I'm the one with the hole", she said with a Wispa.
"I'm Marathon, the one with the nuts" he relied.
He touched her Crème Eggs and slipped his hands into her Snickers.
He fondled her Flap Jacks and she rubbed his Tic Tacs.
It was a Fab moment as she screamed in Turkish Delight.
But 3 days later, his Sherbert Dib-Dab started to itch.
Turns out Miss Rowntree had been with Bertie Bassett and he's got bloody Allsorts.

How a SWAT Team Upended My Baby’s Life — and Got Away with It

Officer safety is paramount, even at the expanse of thousands of maimed or dead innocent civilians.

Including their own spouses & children?

Ask about the LASD who intimidated the FBI ....

I wonder what those people will say if, god forbid, any of them contract Ebola?

Healthcare worker: You got Ebola?
Cop: Yes
Healthcare Worker: Lie there & die, We're putting our safety first
Cop: It's your job to protect us
Healthcare worker: So was yours!

That's the problem with a fair amount of people. They don't see the 2 sides of criticism - Constructive & Destructive.

All they see is criticism of their beliefs/ideals/views & that's "the" red flag. One only has to look to these boards for excellent examples of that.

There's a minimum risk if you see it on a bigger scale...

I don't think the victims are looking at a bigger picture, neither are health workers...

"But each new case of transmission is asking the question - is enough being done to protect healthcare workers?"
