  Dr Winston OBoogie: It's not "Ivor "Jest Ye Not Madam" Biggun" Lol. That's not her name!I'm Baldrick aren't I?

You missed the point of that video. Everyone knows full well Billy Joel isn't a Frontman but the concept of the video reminds me of that "Moves like Jagger" song without the costumes. Billy Joel is definitely my guilty pleasure, I love a great singer songwriter. Also Alanis Morissette. JLP is one of my favourite non Beatles albums ever.

<Beatles Butcher Cover Album Appraised>

Only on sale at Sears for 1 day!

Now worth up to USD$12,000>

Too much! I just watched an interview with Julian Lennon and he was talking about how he had to buy back all his dads memorabilia. I don't know how he can even make eye contact with Yoko Ono, she's a disgrace. I saw a pair of Lennon's sunglasses on a Beatles fan page on facebook for sale for $300 and I was going to buy them, he left them in a studio in 1974 apparently and they come with a COA. After a little research I decided against it because COA's can quite easily be faked.

Jagged Little Pill is the favourite album of angry girls.

I wasn't aware you're an angry girl, Mark.

Nevertheless, I admit that "Hand In My Pocket" is a catchy song.

Beatles memorabilia are the modern day version of medieval religious relics.

sensible

done or chosen in accordance with wisdom or prudence; likely to be of benefit.

Ergo, "sensible" gun control means firearm legislation enacted and enforced with wisdom and prudence for the benefit of the overall community.

As for uniform agreement, one man's sensible gun control is another man's attempt to disarm the populace and make them vulnerable to enslavement by a tyrannical government.

In an attempt to shed some light on this controversial debate, I am conducting a survey which is open to all American citizens who support the Second Amendment.

(see above posts)

As a supporter of the Second Amendment:
a) Do you own any guns?
b) If so, how many?
c) What type?
d) Have you ever shot anyone? (optional)

<td> I would be interested in your responses to the survey questions.

<diceman: <technical draw: When someone mentions "sensible" gun control, what exactly do they mean by "sensible", and do they all agree on what "sensible" is?>

May I bring your attention to your earlier post in my forum on this topic:

<Apr-04-18 diceman: <optimal play: Still early results, but very interesting so far...>

Liberalism is a lie, that always has:

Plan A,
Plan B,
Plan C,

and so on.

I'll comment more after you watch.>

I watched your YouTube video and provided the following response:

<That youtube video seems to indicate that strict gun laws don't contravene the second amendment, otherwise New York couldn't get away with such stringent gun restrictions.

All Stossel and Martinez said is that they wanted to carry a gun "for protection"?!

That's kinda vague.

Maybe if they'd said "we need a gun to form a militia against a tyrannical government", they might have had more success?

The real issue is if these gun laws are reducing shootings in New York?

Anyway, as I've previously made clear, I have no opinion either way regarding gun laws in the USA since it doesn't affect me, but I was hoping my survey might clarify some issues regarding gun ownership in relation to the second amendment.>

Having watched your YouTube video and responded accordingly, it would be appreciated if you could now answer my survey questions.

The only thing I know about guns is what I learned in the army: "This is my rifle, this is my gun. One is for shooting, one is for fun."

  optimal play: <thegoodanarchist: <optimal play: Speaking of great acting performances... > Hillary Swank in "Boys Don't Cry".>

I agree that Hilary Swank's performance in the lead role was worthy of the Best Oscar Award.

In fact, all the performances were very good, although I didn't really enjoy the movie.

Although based on a true story, I found the subject matter off-putting and the narrative disturbing.

It's the sort of film you come away from feeling depressed.

But definitely a great acting performance by Hilary Swank.

  Dr Winston OBoogie: Just for you, Ploppy :)

<BBC News - Suicide Bombers Go On Strike Suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike on Wednesday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife. Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement. The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death would be cut by 25% this February from 72 to 54. A spokesman said increases in recent years in the number of suicide bombings has resulted in a shortage of virgins in the afterlife. The suicide bombers' union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs ( B.O.O.M.) responded with a statement saying the move was unacceptable to its members and called for a strike vote. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, "Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don't ask for much in return but to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth". Speaking from his shed in Tipton in the West Midlands, Al Qaeda chief executive Haisheet Mapants explained, "I sympathize with our workers concerns but Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands. They are simply not accepting the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace. Thanks to Western depravity, there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It's a straight choice between reducing expenditures or laying people off. I don't like cutting benefits but I'd hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won't be able to blow themselves up." Spokespersons for the union in the North East of England, Ireland, Wales and the entire Australian continent stated that the change would not hurt their membership as there are so few virgins in their areas anyway. According to some industry sources, the recent drop in the number of suicide bombings has been attributed to the emergence of Scottish singing star, Susan Boyle. Many Jihadists now know what a virgin looks like and have reconsidered their benefit packages.>

  optimal play: <Dr Winston OBoogie> No link to your story but I presume it's satire.

Anyway Mark, here is a short YouTube video which desribes you exactly!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXf...

<Idiots React to London Underground Attack>

It refers to English people like yourself who are continually outraged about Donald Trump's tweets while Muslim terrorists in England were still on the loose after committing yet another Islamic atrocity in London.

22 injured

total panic

terrorists still on the run in England

But what are people like Mark concerned about?

Donald Trump's tweets!

Mark, don't you ever feel embarrassed about England and your own anti-Trump hysteria?

Can you remember that moment you decided to become a Cultural Marxist?

Enjoy living in the Islamic State of England.
