Air should be privatized

Historically, people have enjoyed free access to the Earth's bounteous resources as a birth right. They were able to hunt and gather food, grow crops and graze livestock, build shelters and obtain water wherever they wanted because the land and its provisions belonged to everybody. People took this for granted and still do in many parts of the world which are not controlled by pro-capitalist governments. However, in capitalist countries property rights are enshrined in law and the land and it...

It's time to stop the fat of the land living off us.

brian_eggleston
Preston

The idiom 'living off the fat of the land' refers to the British aristocracy who do no work themselves but, instead, live a life of decadent self-indulgence courtesy of the workers who toil on their vast, inherited country estates to produce crops and animals for sale. The British landed gentry are undoubtedly indolent parasites but they are not the only ones sponging off hard-working people like you and I. No, the obese are similarly milking the system so they can stuff their big flabby...

You can take a savage out of South America but you can"t take the savage out of a South American

Uruguayan international and Liverpool FC forward Luis Suarez is, yet again, facing a lengthy ban from football for biting another player, this time an Italian defender during the Uruguay v Italy World Cup match this week. In behavior reminiscent of a ravenous chimpanzee devouring a captured monkey, the famished South American footballer started chomping away at the shoulder of Giorgio Chiellini in order to satisfy his voracious appetite. [1,2] But we really shouldn't be surprised that Sua...

The obese should not get the same benefits as the disabled.

Perhaps he expects us to feel sorry for him, he being the lazy, greedy, salad-dodging slob who is panting like Elton John at a boy scout meeting as he hauls his huge sweating folds of blubber across the car park to World of Iced Donuts, Greasy Burgerland, Deep Fried Seal Pups 'R' Us, or wherever? Perhaps he expects to be allowed to park right outside the shops just like the disabled person are? Perhaps he also thinks that the taxpayer should pay his rent and give him cash handouts so that...

A crackdown on paedophile Catholic priests: it"s time for a good old fashioned witch hunt

brian_eggleston
Bhawksfan234

In 1450 witch hunts began in earnest in many western European countries after the Roman Catholic Church created an imaginary evil religion, using stereotypes that had circulated since pre-Christian times. They said that pagans were evil witches who kidnapped babies, killed and ate their victims, sold their soul to Satan, were in league with demons, flew through the air, met in the middle of the night, caused male impotence and infertility, etc. [1] Of course, there is no such thing as witches...

The right to chant at soccer matches should be protected from heterophobic extremists

2Sense

They say you shouldn't mock the afflicted and homosexuality is a disability just like any other, but there is a big difference between cruel and insulting verbal abuse and the light-hearted humorous banter you get at soccer matches, but some gay "rights" extremists don't see it that way. They object to certain humorous soccer chants that are directed at players suspected of being gay, for example: "He's queer, he's bent, his arse is up for rent! Ronaldo, Ronaldo!" "Sol, Sol, wherever yo...

The Elton John AIDS Foundation should be forced to close

MyDinosaurHands

It wasn't Mary's fault she was plain looking and lacked the feminine curves that most other young women have. It was also unfortunate that she was flat-chested, but she didn't help herself by keeping her hair short, by dressing in trousers rather than skirts and by not wearing any make-up. Even so, that does not in any way excuse the actions of the homosexual man who saw her walking past the window of the gay bar he was in and, mistaking her for a teenage boy, went out and dragged her into a...

Poor schoolchildren should clean up after rich schoolchildren or go hungry

JuliusMaxims

The following conversation could soon take place in publically-funded school playgrounds in Britain if they adopt the American system of humiliating kids who are entitled to free school meals by forcing them to clean up after the rich kids. Teacher: I say, you there. Yes you, you nauseating little peasant. You're the girl who gets free school meals, aren't you? Little girl: Yes, sir. Teacher: Your sort make me sick, you scrounging little urchin. Who do you think pays for your school mea...

Historic place names should not be changed to appease the Jews.

Mantizah

The small town of Castrillo Matajudios in Spain has had its name since 1492 but now, 522 years later, meddling Jews from Israel and other parts of the world are demanding the town change its name just because "matajudios" happens to mean "kill the Jews" in Spanish. [1,2] While it is true that there used to be a sizeable Jewish population in Spain, most of them were killed, exiled or converted during the Spanish Inquisition, so these days only 0.03% of the Spanish population are Jewish, and no...

The law should not discriminate in favor of the gays.

Sadly, it's an all-too-familiar tale. It was Saturday night and six young football fans were out on an innocent pub-crawl celebrating their club's big win that afternoon. The fans were walking between their fifth and sixth pub when they passed the theatre where Billy Elliot the Musical was showing. The performance had just finished and the audience were leaving, and among the crowd are two young men who happened to be homosexuals. Now, when the gay couple spotted the group of pub-crawling fo...
