22 May 2014 - 04:23 PMRE: adoption
Many children that are adopted or fostered are done so to take them away from dangerous and abusive families, or because the parent(s) are simply unable to look after them. Are you telling me that they would have a better life if they had stayed with their biological parents, rather than 2 people who love and cherish them?
22 May 2014 - 04:02 PMYeah I shouldn't have said welfare is abused by many, it's abused by a minority who receive a lot of media attention.
As a tech company a lot of our customers and hence money comes from Europe. From what I recall immigration had an overall positive effect on our economy.
Portugal is a good example of how drug decriminalisation can work, addictions are treated like a medical illness, rather than a criminal act. Even in places like Holland it's not a problem. I do admit though that many people in britain (and I am generalising here) simply aren't ready for something like that. We have a binge approach to things like drink and drugs, and people are unable to moderate. Speaking of which, alcohol is a much bigger issue.
I subscribe to a more objectivist approach, if somebody is better at something, then why should we penalise them? If european farmers are more efficient, then perhaps something needs to change here.
22 May 2014 - 03:32 PMI think people can think what they want, provided their views don't adversely affect others.
It's hard to express my views succinctly, perhaps I am somewhat liberal. I don't like restrictions or boundaries, I think that Europe is good for us, I think welfare is useful, but is abused by many, I think people should be able to marry whomever they please, drugs should be decriminalised, motorcyclists should be free to modify their bikes, those who earn money shouldn't be unfairly taxed. Human society is ultimately broken, and until we have a major paradigm shift then it's going to continue that way. :pardon:
22 May 2014 - 02:59 PMI'm just surprised by some of the views expressed on here.
22 May 2014 - 02:35 PMYou're going to have to explain that one for me, greg.
From the dictionary:
A UK newspaper which tries to pretend it isn't a tabloid for some unknown reason. They call themselves "A family paper with strong female readership, it has won many awards for editorial flair, outstanding reporting, design and print quality." I prefer to call it a racist, sexist, slanderous, homophobic, unprofessional, sensationalist Hitler fanzine. They are "morally outraged" by just about everything. Calls itself the only newpaper that stands up for what it believes in (aka. talks bullshit).
The only reason I'm ever buy the Daily Mail is to start a fire.
