Joe49 and DevilDog, I can understand your patriotism as I too am patriotic to my country. What I can't understand, especially Joe49, is why you think you should impose your way on the rest of the world. Joe49, you stated that it "makes you wonder why every country in the world could be a democracy but doesn't have one." I am sure that in Saudi Arabia they are glad they have not had m

From my experience, Nikon have good optics (lenses, etc). If you are hiking with a good quality camera make sure you have a good carry case for both impact protection and water protection. There is often a lot of condensation in packs and tents. Canon have a reputation for being quite light, but possibly not quite as robust. The problem with using a 35mm camera for panoramic shots is that the

It is the small mindedness of some of the people on this site that puts me off the most. They are so concerned about spelling and grammer mistakes in other postings, or whether or not an image has been photoshopped, or, as lostinspace_race put it, critisising women in the photos posted. Get a life. Instead try reading the message, or see what the photographer (or photoshopper) was trying to po

Bob, I agree with you. When the europeans first arrived in asia, it was at a time when Queen Victoria would have a bath once a month, "whether she needed it or not!" Meanwhile the asians were bathing daily. 12079 then has the nerve to question the hygiene standards of the asians. It is only speculation, but if there were a billion people in the US, it would end up far dirtier than w

Tiw, i know many people who work very hard and would not be called successful. There is more to it than that. What I like about a free economy is that you get fewer bludgers (people milking the system without contributing to it) and whiners (people saying that it is unfair that somebody has more than them).

Drake, I am not an American, and I definitely do not like much of what America or Americans do, but to call all white Americans fascist racist scum just shows how hatred is spread, by picking up on the actions of a few, sensationalising them and then generalising them to the rest of the population. Calling white Americans fascist racist scum is like calling muslims western hating fanatical ter

Or, if you ahve to pool your resources and let sombody else decide how it is to be distributed, it will lead to conflicts as people feel disatisfied due to ability, willingness to work, etc. This would then lead to the same situation as the Baltic states are facing, after Moscow took their resources and did not distribute back to them.

As incredible as it is that two people actually agree with each other on this site, I am going to add a third voice. There is some good stuff on this site still. Site admin has talked about the possibility of a mod that allows a user to specify in their profile what categories they wish to view. We need to encourtage them to do this.

No Tiw, I don't believe he has the intelligence for that! 16875, I echo Tiw's question, Why? Do you really believe that or are you just spouting off some random saying you have heard without really thinking about what it means?

Joe49, I think you are seeing the world through rose coloured glasses, or at least believing the biased crap you are fed by your media. I live in New Zealnd and our biggest export earner is primary produce (meat, wool, dairy products etc.) as we are a farming nation. We have free access to most of the world for our exports, but not to the USA, and you talk about the trade sanctions against the

Tiw, agreed that the outcome of a revoultion is going to be worse for the leader of a country than simply not getting re-elected, but the chance of a revolution is less. From the outside, it appears the only reason Bush won another four years is that there was no real strength in the opposition. The same thing happened against Gore. It would be an interesting study to see if any other presid

I actually agree with everything you said (believe me, I am shocked too), but I don't think the threat of a revolution is as much a deterant as the threat of not being re-elected. Can anybody answer Tiw's question as to why US presidents are only allowed two terms? I am curious also, and agree with his reasoning. If the US democratic system is so great why do they have the backstop of kickin

Tiw, I was not questioning that you were from England, merely acknowledging that fact before talking about your governemt. As for the monarchy getting their power back, get real. Given the modern world, the monarchy will rise and fall on popular opinion, but people will never give up the rights and powers they now have. I agree with you that agood monarch will look after the country better tha

I second everything the others have posted. Delete it ASAP before other kiddie fiddlers find it and download it to their own PC. The title the uploader gave the image shows how sick he (I know it is an assumption, but it probably is a man) is. Can you block that person from this site?

Tiw, to me it seems mkcerusky knows more about this subject than you do. You said you are from England; maybe you should worry more about Americas influence over your government! At least the British monarchy has been reduced to a toothless lion with just a figurehead role.

Oh, now it all makes sense to me. I really thought 25467 was asking about his schooling. (Can you detect the sarcasm). No matter how intelligent 25467 or DevilDog think Tiw is, they still turned it into a personal attack. They could have instead something like, I think Tiw's arguement sucks as a monarchy is simply a more pleasant form of dictatorship. It doesn't give people any rights or c

To DevilDog and 25467, if anybody should be questioning their age it is the two of you. I too do not agree fully with Tiw, but if you don't agree with somebody, why turn to personal attacks. Heres an idea; come up with an alternative arguement. I guess though that if either or both of you are American, you do have an excuse - that is how your elections work. Don't bother argueing the merits

That is simple 255109. People abuse freedom. Ok, I will qualify that: Some people abuse freedom. Let's take Iraq as an example. Now that there is more relative freedom for their people, there is/will be more crime and capitalistic greed. Please don't get me wrong, I am not pro control or anything, just pointing out that freedom, while being valuable, comes at a price.
