Topic: Serious Discussion / How old do you want to be when you die?

I’m so glad I don’t live in Pakistan. I’d expect to be dead next year.

It’s more about health than years. Family history suggests I’ll make it to about 90. I’ll settle for that as long as I’m still reasonably mobile and don’t go gaga in the meantime.

Fuck off cunt.
My gtamps is 85 and my great grand father died well in his hundereds but I just don’t like to go over 65.
I just don’t want to be one of those old men thinking about their glory days.

65 will be good enough, assuming my hot head does not end it earlier.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Give me your tired, your poor

Let me present you all with a pertinent scenario. Suppose we are both firefighters and neighbors to a burning building, responding to a wave of destructive fire that is spreading to our homes and loved ones. Do we spend our precious and scarce resource, water, continuously and separately on the flames approaching our respective homes? Or, do we focus our efforts on actually solving the problem, the burning building, through sharing our resources?

Clearly, the scenario is rhetorical and the latter is the more practical means of solving the problem for everyone. The metaphor teaches us that, unless we focus our efforts on the source of a propagating problem, the problem will continue. Accordingly, we should prioritize the causes of the unmanageable influxes of immigration, instead of simply responding to the immigration policies of our own countries. This means prioritizing the end of the wars causing the immigration by any moral means necessary. The problem, if we all accept this ideology, is exactly how to do it.

Well, ideally, we would have a world organization of countries that has the power to pass world-wide legislation and place peacekeeping forces in the midst of troublesome countries. Ideally, we would call this organization the United Nations, and they would have international regulating power.

Okay, so clearly we have such an organization, but the problem remains. This, I would argue, is largely due to countries’ lack of participation in resolving global conflicts. Although there are U.N. and other peacekeeping forces (such as NATO), these are headed by the United States which contributes way more than any other UN country to the peacekeeping forces, and a vast super-majority of troops to NATO peacekeeping forces, which hints at the rest of the world’s lack of willingness to contribute.

The lack of faith in the U.N.‘s peacekeeping potential is also present in the lack of troops provided by the key U.N. members. This lack of faith is dangerous, and a main reason why the first international political regulating organization, the League of Nations, failed to work together to prevent WWII. Ideally, the world would invest more in U.N.’s peacekeeping potential and, together, would physically prevent the wars from continuing; an organization has more political power if it is supported by all nations of the world, rather than three or four. As a developed world, it is essential for us to come to the realization that war is regressive, morally wrong, and only justified in self-defense (if everyone operated on this principle, there would be no war; there would be no aggressor) and to work together as a globalized society to stopping war and genocide anywhere it appears on the globe. This would prevent the influxes of refugees, keep unemployment steady in immigrant-accepting countries, and would increase the quality of life for everyone on the globe.

Fire extinguished.

UNO is puppetof the west and its only function is to forward the agenda of western especially USA.
The only good thing, the ONLY good thing abut UNO is that it is a source of revenue for our army. (for we contribute “peace keepers”)

Topic: Serious Discussion / American Shame: My Lai Massacre

Originally posted by petesahooligan:

The military is certainly not the only agency responsible for atrocities. Companies are also involved from time to time.

Here’s a little-known entry in American history; the Ludlow Massacre.

In the early 1900s the west was going nuts with lumber and mining. The companies involved were buying, leasing, or just outright squatting huge tracts of land and pulling out as much timber and coal they could get their hands on. These resources basically materialized the western expansion, not to mention a fatten a few wallets.

Workers Unions had already been established as the most effective bargaining liaisons for workers subjected to the arbitrary and (often) unfair practices and policies of large corporations. In mining towns it was common for housing, commerce, entertainment, and all aspects of the workers’ lives to be supplied by the corporation. This is where the term “company store” comes from… the worker gets his or her paycheck then walks over to the grocery for food, marked up to exorbitant profits, and those profits are returned to the corporation. Same with housing. Even tools and medical services were sometimes “offered” by the corporation. Outside companies were prevented from doing business by company goons… “town security” (also in thrall of the corporation).

In Ludlow, Colorado the miners had enough as went on strike. In retaliation, the company (Colorado Fuel and Iron, a Rockefeller company), killed over 20 people… some women and children. The workers retaliated and in the ensuing fight 50 people were killed.

The workers were asking for, among other things, an 8-hour work day and the right to use _any_store, doctor, or housing.

The National Guard was called in to restore order. The resulting arrests led to 332 workers being indicted for murder but only one man, the leader of the strike, was convicted and that sentence was later overturned. Essentially nobody served any time for any crime.

There’s a memorial on the site now.

We have a quote in fasrsi
“Tang Amad Bajang Amad”
It roughly (*Very Very Roughly)translates to
“Shit hits the fan if not disposed in timely manner”

Topic: Serious Discussion / Anyone got experience with wills and probate (uk law)?

Originally posted by donseptico:

Ok, long version cut short, my brother’s landlady has recently died and had originally willed the property to him and his wife (in light of the amount of work he did on it at her behest) but changed her will ‘at the last minute’ when staying away with her family.

Obviously, it’s her right to leave it to whomever, but…

a) where would he stand making a claim against the estate for ongoing japanese knowteed management, etc?

b) what, if anything, can he do about his new landlord wanting to raise his rent contrary to the stated wishes of the decedent.

(obviously I’ve told him to get proper legal advice – but that’s easier said than done for multiple reasons, not least of which being money… so if anyone has experience in this area?

I will tell you from my ACCA Book
There is one thing called past consideration in contract law and it is also applicable on wills and death estate as far as I can tell.
Basically, if you do something with out any promise of payment in advance, a promise made after the deed is done is un enforceable.
The closest case study I could find online was this:



Re McArdle (1951) Ch 669 Court of Appeal

Majorie McArdle carried out certain improvements and repairs on a bungalow. The bungalow formed part of the estate of her husband’s father who had died leaving the property to his wife for life and then on trust for Majorie’s husband and his four siblings. After the work had been carried out the brothers and sisters signed a document stating in consideration of you carrying out the repairs we agree that the executors pay you £480 from the proceeds of sale. However, the payment was never made.

Held:

The promise to make payment came after the consideration had been performed therefore the promise to make payment was not binding. Past consideration is not valid
.

Basically, unless you have a proof that she agreed before hand about this property transfer, you are as you pale buggers say “Shite out of luck mate.”

Just my two cents.

They have hung and executed people since the beginning of time in Pakistan and many other countries. Yet, people STILL commit crimes that have the death penalty applied to them. History has proven a death sentence does not deter crime. If it did, people would not do the crimes anymore, yet they do. Don’t you think it’s time for society to realize it does not work, and actually focus on the real problem so people won’t feel the need to commit the crimes in the first place? People who are given fair chances to get ahead and given every help in the world to succeed and be happy typical do not commit crimes.

There is a breed of people whom death scares not, so they will do as they please and they are the ones who truly deserve
the CP. They are the majority of people commiting capital crime in Pro-CP countries.

What do you gain from a public execution?

Digressing slightly, I would be interested to find out where apostasy fits into your heirarchy of demonology. Do non-believers deserve to be executed too, as many Islamic scholars seem to think?

Peace of mind that my death will be avenged and as such there will be far less people inclined to kill me because of that.

No, I don’t think “infidels” deserve to die just because they are infidels.
Any one who thinks so is going against the way of Islam. After all, there were Jews in Medina too, right until they plotted against holy prophet.

There’s a lot of stuff going on in your post.

To summarize:
• Torture results in misinformation
• Torture spreads fear
• There’s stuff we don’t know
• Americans don’t like torture

Yup. That pretty much sums it my thoughts too!

I was hoping you were going to share your thoughts on the legality of enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs), even though it’s not a very interesting topic. The legality of an action, of course, rarely reflects the morality of that action. There are things people generally find immoral that are legal and vice versa.

What I find interesting is that we might—as a people—justify the use of EITs against enemy combatants, but then wouldn’t this imply that we would accept the use of those same techniques against American soldiers as a legal and reasonable part of warfare?

Its Legality s irrelevant to me. What I’m more interested is, will the americans still make a martyr of their soldiers who will be tortured in enemy custody?

We are not in times ancient anymore mate, gone are the times when you could torture a man for a week and find out whereabouts of his comrades. Insurgents have grown smarter to this. By the time you get the info, it will already be too late.
Also, torture is a far better terror spreading technique than an intel gathering.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Torture, Its Legality and its effectiveness,

As you all might know, The US Senate has released a report on the use of torture by CIA in their “WAR Against Terrorism”. It Summarizes some of the techniques used by them and also its also its effectiveness in extracting information(It sucks at that). If Applied against an innocent man, it will extract false confessions. If applied against a trained and determined adversary, it will lead to misleading info. Even if an enemy has been “cracked” it might be too late.

Personally, I think torture can not extract reliable Intel but it is a damn good tool to spread fear and terror in the enemy and it should be used as such.

There is also another side of the story, that being, the facts, released in the report are not complete and might just be the tip of the iceberg, god knows how deep in mud your Intel community is.

What amuses me about you western as a whole and American in particular is the kind of surprise you show, when it is found that your gorvn. is spying on you or your govrn. tortures.(Both of these things have been common knowledge for us third worlders) May be it is because you trust your govrn. too much or you are a hypocritical lot.

So, What are your thoughts about this whole fiasco.

Bwfore youyou blabber more about “me generation” tell me, who raised us?

I don’t at all follow your responses to me. Mostly because the second one should be addressed to gungho. But, the writing of it might give clue as to why you are a tad “confused”. lol

The first sentence might be a response to my post; however, it is so disjointed from it that I’m not at all able to grasp how it applies.


My guess is that it also was intended as a response to gungho’s assessment of YOU being a “me generation” person. But, I will comment on it anyway. Just because you do those thing doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sense of “entitlement” in other areas. Or, that such sense can’t be inappropriately excessive.


It was a reply to you both
Then, by all means available to ya, justify why it was a reply to me.
All I did was make a clarification/distinction of what gungho’s post was about.

YOU confused country w/ govt.


If you are all that touchy about someone helping ya;
don’t bother to make a reply.
Like YOU said: actions speak louder than words.


I am being touchY?
No Sir, it is you and you alone who trying to find something negative here.
Something to bash me for.
He mad A comment You clarified it.
It was nothing but appropriate to keep both of you in my reply.

Personally? No problem with it. In terms of the future of the country? We have a BIG problem with that.

Let me quote one of the top 5 Presidents in history in regards to this, and I will let his words speak volumes and I will add nothing more to this discussion:

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

John F. Kennedy "

If you have trouble reading this and understanding it, sometimes the emotion of the person speaking can drive home the true meaning. Here is the video:

I Disagree wit the notion of serving the govrn. for its them, not us who are the servants.
and one should never judge politicians by their words or emotions, but by their actions.
