Do you think that Great Britain supports George Bush because we've got the same initials?

Anyone who joins the army is stupid. Signing up to try and kill or be killed by people you don't know, on the word of people you don't know saying that other people you don't know are bad is just stupid. And I know that it’s probably pretty stupid of me to be saying this as they are the one’s with the guns, so I shouldn’t infuriate them, but I’m banking on the fact that they probably can’t read.

Ok, now that was a joke. I’ve met many people who have been in training to enter the army or some shit and they all consider it to not be the case that they are just in it for the killing. They talk some shit about protecting people and bla bla. Why not become a security guard or join the red cross or some shit then? The army is a war machine, and if you join that machine without thinking that you’re in for a lot of killing then you’re pretty stupid.

Conversely, who cares if that war was illegal? Sadam Hussein was a bad man. He had it coming. He was screwing over his people on a day to day basis, so someone needed to kick his ass. So he didn’t have and weapons of mass destruction. He did have 200 PS2’s or some shit, so isn’t that enough of a threat? One day the Iraqi’s could have come over here and kicked our asses on Pro Evolution Soccer 4. That would have been a sad day.

But what happens if the Iraqi’s get mad and do some September the 11th type shit I hear you cry. Well firstly, it was clearly perpetrated by George Bush to give him reason to start some wars. Come on, it's been long enough now that we don't have to shy away from the obvious truth in case we offend someone. I feel sorry for all those who died and the lives that were ruined, but that doesn’t mean that claiming that different bad guys were involved than generally accepted is belittling their loss. When George Bush got in power, he was obviously going to start some wars. The Iraq thing was in the news before September the 11th, but no-one seemed to be getting on his side. What he needed was an atmosphere of fear of and distrust towards the middle east. Bingo, let a terrorist attack through the net. I mean, just think about it, if you were prepared to blow yourself up for your religious beliefs, then how come more stuff isn’t being blown up? Either they are pretty lame at it, or they just aren’t as terror-filled as we are being led to believe. Oh yeah I was supposed to have a secondly. Never mind.

I would like to also have a rant about the Asian Tsunami, but I’m not sure the world is ready to believe earthquake machine stories just yet. Conspiracy Theory was nicely timed so that if anyone does mention an earthquake machine, then people will think of that film and assume it’s to crazy to be true. But lot’s of things too crazy to be true are. Such as bumble bees being able to fly. Or George Bush winning the election in totally dubious style and yet people letting him retain being in charge of all those nukes. Or people telling you to vote in the elections because your vote really does count. It doesn’t count. Think about all the bad shit that happens on the news. The perpetrators of that shit get a vote. Think about all the smelly old people with odd views. Those people get a vote. Think about all the annoying, arrogant and just generally fucked up people you have met in your lives. Those people get a vote. And now think of all the people that you consider nice and reasonable in their view points. Not many of them comparatively is there? No. Well still, I suppose you might as well tick a box if you’ve got a bit of spare time. It’s always nice to rage against the machine, even if you know it’s not listening.

my sister said this weekend that she was going to vote conservative. not that she had any reason for doing so. i remember asking her who the prime minister was in 1998 (as in i asked the question in 1998) and she said john major, so she's not very politically aware. i blame ben and his fox hunting ideals for this decision of hers. But happily it doesn't matter as it gradually dawned on her during our conversation that as she never actually registered to vote, she can't vote for them anyway.

War is bad. Illegal wars are worse. Having a government that lies to convince people illegal wars are good are worse still.

Whether you feel like your vote counts or not, you'd be pretty fucking mad if that right got taken away from you.

Here's some inspiration for some of you to vote. Tories want to reclassify cannibis so there are stricter penalties for possession. Think about it!

WOW, I actually agree with u justin (fred your point holds true as well). But Justin, i'm sure I said all of this at the time and people just told me to get fucked! OK maybe bush didn't set up the whole 9.11 thing but he certainly could have stopped it from happening IF he had WANTED to.

Justin, this shit is gold man!

You should have newspapers ringing u soon and if you dont i'll ring em myself.

By the way, who says the war was illegal? A load of people who don't know shit about law as far as i can see :) Jumping on the galloway bandwagon, man, have you seen that guy? I wouldn't even buy a used car from him! :)

Voting is important for exactly the reason that there are idiots out there. People not voting is how idiots like the BNP gain seats.
