Ah yes, but those doing it will wear their now apparently compulsory Poppies
and recite about this being a "free country"*
so that makes it ok. (* subject to ever-increasing surveillance, diktat from Brussels, bogus elections,
sacrifice to the temples of Banking, and corporate permission from the NWO)

I don't like the idea one little bit, because giving politicians the
to print money at will invariably means they use it, and that
leads to higher inflation.
Thanks to fractional reserve and its gearing ratio, private banking and finance corporates fantasise
as much debt-"money" into existence as they like -- created from nothing and backed by nothing. But as a debt owed to them by the public, it then gets alchemised into real assets. The activities of these financial institutions engineered the present (alleged, lucratively nice-for-some
) crisis. How could the State doing the same thing actually be worse?
Coinage (ie. cash as literally can be in your pocket, whether it's metal discs or printed paper) version of "money" -- which has been declined since the middle of last century from nearly half, to now being less than four percent of money in circulation -- is not a problem. Money serving its correct function as a convenient token of exchange. Evolution towards a so-called "cashless society" greatly enhanced the power and usurous profit-leeching of the Banks, a snag about which the public were not informed; had money been spent into existence by the State rather than ponzied by the (private) financial corporates to which a Political Establishment of dubious loyalties had long since abdicated control of economy, country and population, the present "printing money" v "asset-stripping fire sale" problem wouldn't have arisen.

Which is exactly what Goldman, Morgan and the other big finance institutions have,
and use to their own benefit but everyone else's enslavement.... They advise Governments, and don't pay politicians such as ex-PM Blair lots of money for nothing.

reported a few weeks ago that the present recession has caused a new wave of homeless in the USA -- and its not comprised of those who were previously at the bottom end of the income scale, it's increasingly those who were "middle-class".
Wonder how many of these people had income and health insurance with companies like UNUM......

Well, now it is clear where almost all of IDS's implied
own work was plagiarised from .... or, rather more likely, handed over as a ready-made package just awaiting a political name to front it.
It also appears to expose Unum's denial (in the current Private Eye
of pushing for benefits cuts,
as a heap of absolute weasel-poo.

Would that be the FSA that's getting re-jigged by the Government,
to teach the Bankers a lesson? (unfortunately, its main content being that they can do as they jolly well subsidised please)

The spin-dryers on these were (afaik) never as good
-- or fast -- as free-standing units, which only spun.

1300 to 1600rpm should be safe enough for almost anything.
If creasing's a problem where don't-iron items are concerned, fold them first and arrange around the inside of the (vertical, pretty well impossible with horizontal) drum ... any materials that seem exceptionally delicate, wrap for instance a thin towel around.
Free-standing spinners won't jump around if the loading is distributed evenly.
Not too much put in per load -- but just as importantly, not too little either.ps : in vertical spinners, a heavier sort of rubbery load-topper (like this)
is much better than the thin pastic "web" type often supplied nowadays.

Can't their readers recall that such allegedly new revelations
aren't, since they've been re-cycled umpteen times before?Or do they revel in orgasmic tizzification too much to notice.....

A faster spin-dryer is best. The horizontal-axis ones in front loader washing machines, however good, are usually not so good as a free-standing vertical-axis spinner.
Unfortunately, the free-standing spin dryers of today tend to be inferior to those from years ago; we have a late 1970s Creda that is very seriously better than its current equivalent which my mum's got (suspect design of drum and drain hole location might be significant too -- enamelled steel oldie has drain slots halfway up, modern stainess drum drains near the top).So I'd advise if you come across an old 1970s/early 80s model in top condition for sale,
consider buying it. You can still get spare lids and belts new on e-bay; often what may
be wrong if one has stopped working right is just that the connector rod from lid-latch
to spring steel motor clutch down at the electric motor unit, needs adjusted via its lock-nuts.Ok, diatribe finished so you can all wake up again now!

Offworld - they aren't dichotomies, they are dimensions - extravert one
end shading into introvert the other, most people can do some of both
but most also have a preference for one or the other trait, very few
people are absolutely in the middle.
You refer to them as if they were linear, or opposites, or perhaps only slightly overlapping separates....
But why -- what if they're multi-dimensional, occupy the same location at the same time?
For instance: intuition, judgement, sensing, percieving -- would the optimal system not be for there to be a synergetic arrangement whereby data from all these vectors will interact simultaneously?
Posted on 08/11/2011 4:40 PM
I may have a problem; cannot regard the listed "dichotomies" as being such at all, unless perhaps for "thought" and feeling" but that would depend on what was meant by "feeling" (ie. is it a detachedly objective, or non-detached subjective, mode that's meant).

Welfare reforms could force 600,000 off incapacity benefit
Government measures 'will impoverish vast numbers and cause untold distress', according to university study
Fothergill said: "The estimates show that the coalition government is
presiding over a national welfare reform that will impact principally on
individuals and communities outside its own political heartlands.

I might get another tin of the carpet spray and redo it all again next week just to be on the safe side.
If possible, keep some cut pieces of sellotape readily to hand, if quick you can slap it on to catch the little sods when they land.
Years ago I found a 2-lb hammer and small anvil quite satisfyingly effective thereafter. My (now late) cat was allergic to flea bites. One must have sneaked in, as she was a house-cat. So I'd hold one arm still and close under a 60W angle-poise -- heat as well as blood availability attracts them -- as a decoy, then over came the other hand with the tape. Knocked off well over 40, afaicr.

What would the criteria be assuming in the first instance such cars
would require a supervisor, rather than a driver?
Absolute faith in a control-system so corrupt and incompetent as
to have brought about the present situation at every level from
local to global. And which would have a leading role in specificiation,
design and implementation of the control-system for such vehicles.But vehicles of governance don't seem to be under any supervision....
Posted on 05/11/2011 9:58 AM
In addition to fuel costs there's a knock-on effect of the state of the roads themselves, if thanks to cuts they're not properly maintained ... higher wear and repair cost for vehicles owned by either the cared-for, or their carers.

Something quite similar seems to have happened re the Bank bailouts and political connivances in the Eurozone.
What's worrying, though, is the possibility that the blatant over-confidence of those who (mis)rule and their cronies might in the end prove to have been justified..... an awful lot of the public are still far too easily manipulated thanks to mass-media collusion.
