"I never used to feel strongly about this, but 100,000 Scots have just had their votes stolen by being misinterpreted as 'spoiled ballots' while voting against BlaIraq. No fucking way is that true.

Flora raid in Hamburg
According to mainstream media, over 800 policemen were involved in raiding 40 left-wing political objects with the support of 20 public prosecutors.

09-05-2007 08:03

How many of us put any credence into this stuff, let alone pay attention? “Federal authorities announced Tuesday that they had foiled a terrorist plot to attack Fort Dix.
