I think you meant
Today California becomes 'the US equivalent of a Third World Country ' complete with chaos , lawlessness , various factions vying for control , hired goons running their country , rife with drugs . Kinda like Chicago , but on a much grander scale.
Better , huh ?


Right wing propaganda, as usual. You're describing Texas here.

Similar to the bobbies we had in London before the 'terrorist' thread was introduced

Just let me be clear , I don't think guns are the reason for crimes here in the states whether used by fools, criminals or cops. My opinion can always be changed with new information though.

London now has cops who carry guns? I did not know that.
Has there been a drop in crime since that happened or has there only been a rise in police shootings?

What a shock, a new account.

No one with an account younger than 1 year should be allowed to start threads until we have this bot/troll non sense under control.

I had 2 businesses in California. It, at the time was nice. Now if I open a business there and hired people for a restaurant business and required them to get a VD and Sex disease check up I'd get sued for something.


So, you were in the business of prostitution then? Or why else would it bother you if people had some sex disease? They can't be transferred by food or toilet seats, nor by handshake, sneezing or other means other than .. well.. having sex. Does your business require folks to have sex .. eh.. with you? With your customers?

Why on Earth do you want to know if your employers have a VD?

I'ts very simple: you can't shoot anybody with no gun. Hence, in Germany where we have strict gun control we have sixteen times less gun related violence than in the US.

They don't like looking at a liberal run state that is prospering.
It messes with their world view I guess.

Real Americans are leaving Californistan. If you have a job there they rape your paycheck, if you are a criminal scumbag illegal immigrant they give everything for free plus protection from the law.

No, it's about protecting people from idiots with guns.

What an idiotic thing to say.

Cops here are militarizing.

In the UK we've always had cops with guns, it's just the majority do not carry.

Times are changing though, tasers are becoming commonplace amongst the force too.

The link ForteanOrg provides a few posts after yours is old, it describes 7 rounds of ammunition discharged (2013/2014) the statistics will be worse for 2017, a few people have been shot to death by the police, that'll affect the stats in a big way.

Knife crime, it's all about the knife crime... Shootings are still rare in the UK.
link




In the first seven months of 2017 there have been eight shootings by police in England and Wales of which five have been fatal.

In the 12 months to April 2017 six people were killed – two of which were shot in 2017




That's the worst stats since official records began, 2004.

With all that being said though, gun crime is rare in the UK. So even if we have 1 or 2 extra police shootings and/or murder via firearms then it can send the statistics way out of sync.

Like a 42% firearms crime in London...

Knifes are our problem, more so the people wielding them and willing to use them on others.

No, we ain't banning knives, we didn't outlaw guns either...

I like the lunch part. I say let the community eat there too.

I like the mens room diaper thing. Makes sense.

The rest I dont care for.

Not everyone in the U.S. shares your views, Metallicus. Conservatives don’t have a monopoly on what it means to be an American.


Border security shouldn't be a Right Vs. Left issue. Neither should our Constitutional rights.

You know whats even more funny is? Most americans are undocumented immigrantes or decedent of undocumented immigrants.

What i dont really really dont understand is how could you took refuge in somebody’s continent and be racists is beyond me. May be its down to years of inbreeding mash up the brains.

Immigrants hating immigrants is biggest joke in this century.




Immigrant =/= Illegal immigrant.

I don't understand why that's such a hard distinction, especially when Canada and Australia have more stringent immigration laws. I'm the grandson of a Cuban immigrant and we are three generations of anti-illegal immigration.


No wonder you lot have to runaway from great nations like Cuba. Enjoy hating. Its probably in your gens.


Yeah no, my grandfather ran away from Castro's executioners such as socialist hero and "freedom fighter" Che Guevara.

Great nations my ass. Enjoy being ignorant.

No. We have laws. California is subverting laws. That's not American.

When you let random strangers live in your house let me know.
