"or god-forbid, the holy tax-payer"
Does this mean I am holy? :-)...or am I an unholy tax payer? :-(

"Sorry Offworld - I have to disagree. British Sign Language (BSL) is one of the recognised languages of the UK, Albanian is not. "
I don't think that is a good analogy
Scottish Gaelic is also a recognised language in the UK..do those of us who don't speak Gaelic disable the Gaelic speakers, or vice versa? ( From one who once lived for a short while amongst Gaelic speakers on the Isle of Lewis )

<try joining up the dots, taking an objective 4D overview of economics and
geopolitics instead of placing trust in the propaganda dissemination of a
highly compliant mass-media.>
Try changing the record Your continuing repetitive claims that you have the only valid view of what is happening in the world and those of us who happen to not see things your way are to be patronised and talked down to is getting tiresome to say the least. Your arrogance is really offensive at times. I have set lurking for some time reading your posts...a waste of time reading one would have been enough as basically they are the same.

I was just commenting on your seemingly excusing the excesses of a dictator because he had set up a so called "welfare state"...I didn't expect my comment to be used to start you off on a tangent with your views of global conspiraces and bankers, disabled people, Yanks,US corporate imperium etc. Just forget I made a comment and I'll go back to just lurking ...god forbid others should have a valid viewpoint and dare air it.

"Ghadaffi's now been murdered by the tools of Cameron and his chums.
When he ruled that country, the people of Libya had a welfare state."
I have been sitting in the background enjoying reading the posts here but I feel now I must comment. The excesses of a dictator excused because there was what was called a welfare state, unless of course you disagreed with some of the the dictators policies or didn't fit into his idea of how the population should behave., then there's a definite lack of welfare...farewell maybe more appropriate.
Stalin, Hitler and Chairman Mao et al had similar welfare states.
Contemplating moving to Libya is a personal choice but it wouldn't be mine.
Offworld sometimes you get it right in my eyes but not this time.
