Well, I voted for an independent candidate who served in the police and as a barrister (my second choice was the Labour candidate, since he used to be on the board anyway).

I didn't want to risk the UKIP candidate slipping in, like the last time nobody voted.

There are so many things in that story that bother me I don't know where to start getting angry.
Am I the only one who thinks Abortion should be mandatory in situations like this? There shouldn't even be an option; it's the first thing the doctor's should have done.

No, you're not. And in her case it was obvious that the fetus wasn't going to survive anyway. Hell, she probably got the septicemic condition FROM having to have such a long, drawn-out miscarriage. (Also, I don't even think the doctors WERE following the law in Ireland, unless I misread. In Ireland, abortion is legal if the life/health of the mother is in danger, and a long miscarriage before any chance of fetal viablity followed by contracting septicemia would count.)

So...last week a fuss got kicked up when a council took a couple of children out of a couple's care because they were members of UKIP (a party which is about as close to the far right as a party can get while still maintaining at least a claim of being mainsteam).

Then, as if to ensure that the universe didn't fall out of balance, a UKIP member proceeded to take the opportunity to argue against gay couples adopting and insult Stephan Fry.

Toronto's absolute joke of a mayor finally got himself kicked out of office. I can't wait to go back to being embarrassed about the performance of our pro sports teams (except the Argos, of course) and our G20 riots instead of this guy.

I was wondering when the fuck that guy would finally get kicked out. I don't live in Toronto but I've heard some damn ridiculous things and quotes from him. Kicking people off a rush-hour bus in the rain to transport his football team home, saying there's more libraries than Tim Hortons...

Another white man uses the "Stand Your Ground" defense after he shoots another black teenage boy, this time over-- I shit you not-- loud music. I'm really starting to agree with the Hag about Florida needing to be kicked out of the Union.

Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, [Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob] Schoonover said.
Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat.

First a woman is denied a life-saving abortion of her already dead fetus.

Then a woman dies because she is refused access to a plane back to her doctor in the United States because she was deemed too fat to fly home (but perfectly fine to fly to Hungary).

And then this.

How are we not descending into madness.

Our culture has become a sad farce.

Glenn Beck is that one kid who sat in the back of the class trying to be really hilarious by quoting Dane Cook bits and using the line 'I know you are but what am I' more times then is deemed acceptable even by other kids.

Dry cleaners put anti-choice messages on coat hangers. I got to say this is pretty funny.
