You know, when non-Americans talk about American gun control, it isn’t necessarily because they think they can force you to change their ways. Sometimes it’s because they actually like America and like Americans, and hate hearing about mass shootings that hurt so many of them. It’s genuinely heartbreaking; and exasperating as well, because we can see so clearly what the solution is, and we know that half of you agree with us but the other half, well, who knows.

Oh, gawd, Inny, you know there is no point in arguing with Elessar/Roger. He is never wrong. :P

I think I was possibly the only one on here who did not know that Roger was in fact Elessar...

...well until I read some of 'roger's' posts of course. It's like the good old days on here again. Wahey! :lol:

Some sections of US media are harassing Malia Obama at college and writing about her appearing to kiss a boy. That’s the actual media by the way, not a crazy terrorist organisation.

I noticed an article or several of them, in fact. Didn't bother with looking at them, though. She is an easy target for news outlets and they'll do anything to make a buck. Asses. All political figure's children should be off limits unless they murdered someone or are deathly ill or something to that effect. Even then...

Or unless they arranged a secret meeting with Russian intelligence to help their father’s campaign, no?

I just watched a wonderful film called Loving. It is based on the true story about a white man and a black woman who got married in 1958. Because the state of Virginia did not allow mixed race marriage, they were forced to move from the state. Eventually the Supreme Court ruled in their favour, changing the laws of America.

It is terrifying that shit like this happened in our lifetimes. Please let it never happen again.
Come on you Tigers.

I just read that on the BBC site. Shocking really considering what that particular far right group stands for. Still I suppose a significant percentage of his Twitter followers will agree with what they say.

If Theresa May doesn’t condemn him and cancel his state visit, then yesterday’s weary claim that the UK is a tolerant country will look all the more farcical.
