“Your whole post is full of fear. If you really believed all of this diatribe you would be secure in what you believed and stop wasting your time trying to convince me that you are right. I do not agree with you and have let this go... so should you.”

“Fear? Don't be ridiculous, anger, perhaps a little at my democratic rights being ignored. However do excuse me I was under the misapprehension that this was a discussion forum, so if you're going to come on here spouting ill informed nonsense you should be prepared for it to be challenged.
Not trying to convince you just ensuring that lies don't get accepted as fact, that's all.”
“If it is truly a minority of people that feel that way then why is the British government so scared? They are not behaving as though they are secure in their "knowledge" that it is a only a few of the Scottish that feel this way? They sure fought like heck to even deny them the right to vote.”
As for anybody fighting like heck to deny a vote? who? when?
The only Scots being denied a vote are the Scots living in the rest of the UK & around the world & they are being denied a vote by the SNP Scottish Government for the simple reason that the fat lady would have got tired of singing & already be back in bed having visited the hotel bar for the after party.
I don't understand why you think the British Government is scared, it's just asked to clarify various situations in the unlikely event of a yes vote but when it does the Nats cry foul & refuse to accept it.
Imagine if you will having a debate with a stubborn Mule!!”

“I haven't watched this show in YEARS and I have never liked this Cheryl creature. She is given a lot of leeway because she is pretty. People give allowances for a lot of ugly behavior as long as you have the right look.”
“I do not believe in a God that has nothing better to do that han his representatives condemn, judge and abuse people. This type of God is weak, insecure and pathetic like the people who insist on worshiping him. He has no neaven or hell to put people in, all he has is dogma and a bunch of fanatics willing to bring him to life in their own minds. These people are no different than fanatical terrorist. As a matter of fact that is all that they are terrorist. Only they don't frighten me. They make me angry.”
“Why should the Scottish care about international heads of state think when it is against what they want to do? They want to be free and have a right to fight for that freedom. The only reason these big wigs even care is that they are afraid that it will throw yet another wrench into the destruction of the European Union and it possibly will. That would not happen if the EU was not already on shaky ground. There are more than a few countries that are thnking and quietly contemplating leaving the EU. It has actually done more harm than good. I look at Nations like Norway and Sweden that refuses to join. I also look at how Ireland was bullied about abused by the EU. Nothing good comes from this union that actually benefits the average citizen. Business interest have inproved and travel but small businesses have been destroyed and the rich have only gotten fat and richer at the expense of the poor.”

“"Why should the Scottish care about international heads of state think when it is against what they want to do?"
They shouldn't care Kimiko but some may just be interested in their line of thinking. You do however seem to be falling into the trap of believing the minority who shout the loudest represent the majority of Scot's who don't want to leave.”

“Actually this is not about rather this obessed alocoholic has an opinion or not. This is about him making what we all know is a cheap shot. He could care less about Robin Williams family, which is evident by him using his public forum to insult their loved one who has only recently died. Is suicide a selfish act? Of course it is but that only means that he felt so alone and alienated by his illness that he felt that this was his only alternative. This is not the time to be insulting his family by opining on what he stupidly consider character flaws.”

“Actually he had no point at all. He made this family's tragedy about him and his opinion in a public forum that does his family more harm and insult than good. Some things people in the media really need to keep some of their opinions to themselves.”
“Where did I diss the American Volunteers? My remarked were about Americans in general. People like you care more about the fantasy of appearing to give a crap about helping people but they don't for the most part. Yes, there are a miniscule few that actually give a crap but most Americans are all blabber. I am American by the way.”

“I think most people in most countries are "all blabber", including many of the correspondents here on HP.”
“Well, come on now! Is anyone really surprised by this? Americans don't really care about saving lives and never really have. We are far too short sited for that as a nation. If we gave two figs about life we would not be abandoning so many men women and children to the streets for profit. We would actually do mure to enourage well paying jobs, reasonable cost housing, healthcare and food. We will care about these things at some point but I won't be alive to see it and it may be too late then. This kind of thoughlessness and selfish behavior is not new and has been the destruction of economies over and over again... we just never seem to learn our lesson.”

“Wrong. The US used American patients with a medical background for this experimental drug because they did not want to be accused of using Africans as guinea pigs. Can you imagine the outcry if they had tested on poor Africans with no medical background and the serum had not worked?
The only reason why this serum was available now is because the US government and American researchers had been working for YEARS to find a treatment or vaccine. The US didn't just create this serum last week.
Also, the US government and its people provide by far more non-military foreign aid than any other country and is usually the 1st and largest responder to natural disasters around the world.
Anti-Americanism is no different than any other type of bigotry.”

“These American volunteer who don't care about saving lives almost died helping, what have you done? The treatment they used is experimental and the world stock is a few vials.”
“Her skin would have went back had she not lost the weight so fast. Chances are that she also did not drink enough water which aids the skins elasticity when losing weight. I have lost lots of weight and have seen others who have also that did not have these kinds of problems with their skin because they did not rush their weight loss and they ate very healthily.”
“I find what these parents did distastful but it is better that they do not take a child home and mistreat it. They did not want him so what, someone else will. I am sure that he will find a home with parents that will know how to better treat him. I do not blame the surragate at all. She has two children that she is struggling to care for and does not want to take on the burden of rearing another child and I do not blame her for that. It is not her obligation or responsibility.”
“You are very ignorant and really need to stop commentiong on topics that you are ignorant of. It shows the world how woefully undereducated you are.”

“I live in a country where we value freedom of speech. This is a forum for people to give their opinions. You do not have to like mine and I do not have to like yours. I shall continue to comment when and where I want. Please don't feel compelled to reply. If other's points of view offend you so much perhaps you need to grow up a little.”

“As you use words such as 'undereducated', I'm guessing you are uneducated.”
“No that is NOT true. She was paid to be a suragate and has NO obligation to raise a child that she can not afford to raise. Surragacy is a blessing for many people and most of the time it works out just fine. These babies were NOT hers to keep to begin with. She is the host who has no legal obligations or rights to the children that she carries. Your comprehsion skills are desperately lacking.”

“I am not a fond of Sean Hannity or Fox News. I do not like the way that they operate. But if you think that they are alone in scewing the facts of what is happening in Gaza then you are decieving yourselves. I support Israel. They have a right to exist. They have the right to defend themselves. If Hamas really cared about their children they would quit using them as body shields and then lying about what is happening in the media.”
