UG#620 - Sex And Drugs And Mental Health (Sex 'Addiction' and Broken Brains)

03-03-2013 05:35

We hear three different perspectives on the Mental Health of the US population - and indeed upon the American concept of 'mental health. Is it a matter of fixing broken brains with carefully targeted drugs? Our speakers agree that the US public have been profitably misinformed by professional experts full of ideas about how they should and shouldn't behave.

EDL Numpties Achieve Nothing In Manchester - #edl #nwi @slatedl @misslbuttercup

02-03-2013 17:06

The EDL got absolutely nothing from today's visit to Manchester, leaving its braindead devotees so absolutely bored shitless, afterwards came a mad dash to jump naked into the canal at Canal Street (possibly wandering where the EDL's Gay Division had vanised to). After the usual run-of-the-mill speeches, anti-fascists will be pleased to know nothing has changed, Tommy, Kev and Hel still in-charge of the EDL, and not the French Revolution-like leadership change that many members had prayed incessantly to Nutzi Norse God "Odin" for.

EDL Support Hardcore Anti-Semites in Manchester This Saturday #edl #nwi @slatedl

27-02-2013 23:15

Since their inception in 2008, the EDL have repeated in parrot fashion the mantra that they are peacefully opposing Islamic extremism by taking to the streets. Formed after poppies were burnt in Luton, this far right group argued every day for a considerable time that they were not racist. Furthermore, setting up supposed Gay and Jewish Divisions, they appeared on radio, TV and the newspapers telling the world that they hated antisemitism and homophobia, and yet, few people believed them.

It is worth mentioning here that the idea stems from successful experiences carried out in Nigeria, Ghana and Brazilian Pará, being confined its originality at the initiative of proposing a mixed economy company, under the control of the Brazilian State, also integrating other several shareholders, for organizing, coordinating and providing technical consistency to the project.

EDL Leadership Are Attending Manchester #edl @slatedl #NWI @misslbuttercup

26-02-2013 17:54

From a fresh tweet taken in the last hour, the EDL leadership are "wetting their pants" absolutely looking forward to visiting Manchester, which proves the "Uniting The Right" rubbish was a trap laid on by KKKev Carroll to get the rebels all back to pay subserviant lipservice to Tommy's deputies - the infamous "and universally loved" Hel Gower and Kevin Carroll, lol! All of those idiots such as the NWI, who seriously believe the terrible twosome, with their "muggy mushrooms" talk are not welcome in the North - think again. You idiots are being used to cement Kev and Hel's popularity.

Photos from Birmingham Council House blockade

26-02-2013 15:16

Activists from across Birmingham have been blockading all entrances to the Council House since 11am, trying to physically prevent Councillors from entering for the budget meeting, where the cuts will be undemocratically voted through. Not surprisingly, most Councillors were not willing to engage with them in debate. The police have helped push the cuts through by forcibly attempting to break up the blockade and escorting the Councillors to the art museum entrance, which is linked to the Council House. Activists attempted to blockade these alternative entrances, but the police kept finding new ways to get Councillors inside. One activist managed to find a way inside the Council House during the meeting, and heckled Albert Bore before being carried out by security.

Produced at millions of copies, costing pennies each, distributed throughout the country by the Brazilian Film Company and commercialized by legions of heroic fighters of the streets called Street Vendors, these copies are the biggest deterrent to piracy, will enhance the income and dignity of this micro-marketers, will take the national cinema to innumerable Brazilians and to other people, and, sold at popular prices, will make billionaire the Brazilian Film Industry and turn it in a sector able to fulfill its strategic role of consolidating a democratic
and plural national identity and of compromising our population with a well-argued and well-supported national project.
