    Obama - man of peace

    Of course, Nobel himself set a great example by inventing dynamite.

    Obama - man of peace

    Seems they feel obliged to hand it out every year. Far better to wait until someone really merits it - once a decade at most, giving the message that peace is a sadly rare and precious commodity.

    Obama - man of peace

    Have to admit he hasn't actually done anything to deserve this yet. But can't wait to hear the spluttering, purple-faced rage from our usual left/right extremist posters. Let's hear it boys and gals!

    Charlie Sheen calls for new investigation into 9/11

    I think Sheen's idea is a good one. An indisputably impartial, full-ranging, exhaustive investigation, calling the most respected engineers, architects, explosives, demolition and aviation experts in the world, might finally put this ludicrous piece of nonsense to bed once and for all. After...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    I agree with Citygirl. Any organisation that wields power will attract bad apples and it should be a priority to weed these out during recruitment. However, it is offensive to make sweeping generalisations; most people in the military are certainly not pigs.

    Is Obama the NEW Capone (Chicago gangster) of the USA?

    You believe this overblown guff, then call other people gullible!

    Is Obama the NEW Capone (Chicago gangster) of the USA?

    Not I. I can't see Obama as being worse than any other politico. All these guys have to play the system, bob and weave, associate with dubious characters. You could say the same about Roosevelt or Lincoln (who incidentally rode roughshod over the constitution something horrid!) I sense a...

    Is Obama the NEW Capone (Chicago gangster) of the USA?

    http://timesonline.typepad.com/comment/2009/08/the-most-extreme-antiobama-claim-yet.html Classic stuff! It's got to the stage where nobody quite knows if the latest Obama story is a joke or intended seriously.

    Is It Time to Bail Out of the US?

    Well I'm sorry, but I'm just trying to interpret what you posted - and what consenting adults get up to in private is fine by me! As for being a racist, I believe I only commented how Obama seems to get a rougher ride (no imagery intended) than his white predecessors - all of whom could be...

    Is It Time to Bail Out of the US?

    As I understand it, you are in favour of torture. Nice.

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    We Brits don't mind a good moan about our NHS, but that doesn't mean we put up with barefaced lies from foreigners. Take a look at the comments here! http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/11/nhs-united-states-republican-health Whoops! Looks like the barking-mad tendencey in the US has...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    If you can read French you will realise that the minister says only that schools could be closed if there is an epidemic and there are no plans to immunise children, but the govt is keeping an eye on developments. No mention of compulsion, because that is a figment of your imagination. Where the...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    No I'm not American. The 'centre' (or 'center' if you prefer) is where most people stand in any country and whether you despise them or not doesn't change the fact. You mention the revolutions in France and Russia in terms of admiration. Surely you know they led directly to the Reign of...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    False. I'm living in France right now and a very cautious line is being taken. Where do you get your 'facts'? Do you ever check them? Do you believe any fatuous piece of propaganda that's pumped in your direction?

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    And now we have an advocate for violent revolution - because the health reforms are, necessarily, a compromise! The left and right-wing fundamentalists deserve each other; they should be armed with heavy sticks and put in a stadium together. Unfortunately they reserve most of their vitriol for...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    I don't think anyone but the wildest groupies ever did think so, but now he's criticised for not being some kind of messiah - and if he's not the messiah... let's crucify him! All this distilled venom coming from both left and right is likely to leave Americans without adequate health cover...

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    But a crook with a health care plan. Unless, along with Steveinbsas, you think the whole concept is some kind of socialist plot, I would suggest you support any attempt to bring this in, no matter how flawed. The next opportunity could be decades away.

    Obamacare: Say goodbye to Grandma and the grandkids!

    Yes, just like in every other civilized country.
