Re: Ashes 2019

Test cricket! What a wonderful reason for a nap. About as interesting as American Football. Even the Yanks version of rounders is more exciting.

Re: America Today - Teachers Arming in Schools

. . . As for mass shootings, I can think of two right off. There was a church massacre where an NRA instructor was present (Sutherland Springs, TX in November 2017), went to his truck, got his AR15 and stopped a massacre from continuing. Just last week, at a Walmart in Springfield, MO, there was a ...

Re: RECESSION?

It just seems to me as if we cannot/will not shake ourselves out of this 10 year cycle nonsense. Some of the bigger players have started shorting the markets and talking of impending doom and the sheep all start to bleet and follow. What fundamental reasons does anyone see for a global recession. Ce...

Re: America Today - Teachers Arming in Schools

Ok I believe that the people born in the good old US of A have now the God Given Right to carry self defensive weapons and Amendment 2 of your book of rules gives you the right to bear arms when arms were muskets that could not be fired more than 3 times a minute. I just hope it is not anyone's fami...

If you don't know then perhaps you should not have a vote, as making a decision between 2 clearly stated options is beyond some peoples brain power. Joudon Very good reply.

Sold for 426 million pound? Do foreign embassies own the land and building for commercial sale. Did they have to purchase the new land for the new embassy?

the argument that openly allowing guns doesn't increase the number of innocent lives lost is preposterous. No it's not.

Going this week for the first 90 day report after extension granted. Will report back after but still believe I/O when asked said only passport required. Have not heard or seen anyone posting that they had to show 800K in bank after 3 months.
