People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless.

Putting aside the fact the Stephen Hawking is actually born and raised in Britain and has made use of the NHS, it really makes me wonder what these people think of the way we carry on in Britain with the old and disabled :/

And how are statements like The British have succeeded in putting a price tag on human life not incredibly hypocritical when you even have to pay for your own ambulance in America!

Awesome write-up, complete with YouTube links, of the London Scientology protest!

The London protest sounds the most fun definitely, the LA protest had the Scientologists driving around repeatedly to take pictures of anyone without a mask, and bringing out hidden cameras in an ice cream truck o_0

Barbara Bush talking about the people who lost everything

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she
chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."

And apparently those people wanting to stay in Texas is "sort of scary". She is aware that people lost loved ones in that hurricane, yes? What a disgusting excuse for a human being. It's not enough to be left without food, water, or electricity for five days, while watching corpses get eaten by rats and people getting raped, and shot. Now you get Barbara Bush chuckling and mocking you for free!

There's a report from someone who was there

Throughout, the official relief effort was callous, inept, and racist. There was more suffering than need be. Lives were lost that did not need to be


Fans of James Marsters ("Spike" in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel") across the Internet have been touched by the plight of the victims of Hurricane Katrina and want to do something to help.

In response, they are listing collectibles on eBay (through the Mission Fishprogram) with 100 percent of the final sales price slated for the American Red Cross and its hurricane relief effort.

The first listings were posted on Sept. 6. All items start at $10, which is the minimum Mission Fish requires to collect for charity.

See the auctions at:

Please consider placing a bid to help the hurricane victims and get a neat collectible for yourself in the process.

Thank you.
