I'll take that as high praise.

I'll spare you a lengthy biography and leave it as "Someone who is smart enough to know he's fucking stupid and should shut up more"


Slaves don't have to dance for a parole board pretending to be penitent over that roach the cops found in the ashtray. Nor do they labour under the delusion of eventual release.

You are much more likely to experience happiness in slavery. I say happiness, I mean Stockholm syndrome.

You seem to be implying that they have not yet been successful.

Judge Napolitano.How to get fired from Fox Business in under 5 mins

Judge Napolitano, of Fox News announced that next week will be his last show. Then he started spitting truth about the two-man con.

Fuck me. That was unexpected. The rant, not the inevitable sacking.

More of this kind of thing. If every newscaster decided to do something similar people might start realising what a joke any political system is. Who knows, they may even figure out who can actually change it. Clue - It's the same person who prevents forest fires.

Back on topic, I'd suggest that a focus on geopolitics is worth considering. Current tensions in Iran for example, have very little to do with the political structure but a lot to do with the potential (And subtle threats) to disrupt oil flow. 

Spreading the relevant information behind decisions could be as important as what the decisions actually are, if not moreso.

Aneristic Illusions / Corruption in the Met
« on: February 13, 2012, 04:27:31 pm »

"Metropolitan Police commander Ali Dizaei has been found guilty of misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice."

Taking all bets on the expected sentence. I'm guessing 3 months on tag. We can't have police commanders in jail, it may give the impression that they're some kind of criminal

Edit - He's been given 3 years. An unusual display of balls from UK courts. "Sources" state that his initial 15 months imprisonment prior to it being quashed will be taken in to consideration so it's looking like 21 months. Add good behaviour to that it's probably closer to 12-18 months.

Got to love "justice" and "Quotation marks"

I would suggest it may be as simple as PR and brand reinforcement.

Consider the billions fast food chains spend on it, it seems logical that arms dealers will be spending to comparable rates. This is probably done overtly (the odd tv spot) to enable covering of covert payments (bribes and "favours")

Considering how much tougher it is to sell the idea of mutilation and death this is a potential goldmine of comedy. Mark Thomas had some fun in this regard a while ago.
