Yup, we would have Fox blaming Obama and MSNBC blaming G.W. Bush. And they probably wouldn't report much on what was happening.

Re: London Riots

I like what Uncle Jimbo has to say on the topic:

London is burning and the search is on for a way to avoid the bleedingly obvious, the welfare state has created a class off looters and moochers.

May even be deserving of a separate thread....

Re: London Riots

This is ridiculous with the American media. No live coverage of Vancouver and no live coverage of London. I guess someone has to riot outside the CNN or Fox News studio to encourage American outlets to cover crap other then American Idol ratings and JLo's divorce.

Heck even BBC America didn't switch up their programming during the riots.

Voting in another person (regardless of party) into a corrupt system isn't going to change anything. The system itself needs changing.

Re: London Riots

UK riots: Big Brother isn't watching you | UK news | The Guardian


Absolutely amazing article written by Russel Brand of all people. Do yourself a favor and read it. I've included a few paragraphs that stood out to me.


Quote:
I remember Cameron saying "hug a hoodie" but I haven't seen him doing it. Why would he? Hoodies don't vote, they've realised it's pointless, that whoever gets elected will just be a different shade of the "we don't give a toss about you" party.

Politicians don't represent the interests of people who don't vote. They barely care about the people who do vote. They look after the corporations who get them elected. Cameron only spoke out against News International when it became evident to us, US, the people, not to him (like Rose West, "He must've known") that the newspapers Murdoch controlled were happy to desecrate the dead in the pursuit of another exploitative, distracting story.

Quote:
Why am I surprised that these young people behave destructively, "mindlessly", motivated only by self-interest? How should we describe the actions of the city bankers who brought our economy to its knees in 2010? Altruistic? Mindful? Kind? But then again, they do wear suits, so they deserve to be bailed out, perhaps that's why not one of them has been imprisoned. And they got away with a lot more than a few ****ing pairs of trainers.

I agree. Never heard of him. Had to google him.
He says - But I know, as we all intuitively know, the solution is all around us and it isn't political, it is spiritual. Gandhi said: "Be the change you want to see in the world."

What a load of crap.
