    That is a pretty over the top statement.

    We in the US (unlike the UK) have a recourse to stop such laws. The problem is will the people actually stand up and say no more.

    And I'm betting that they won't.

    US financial institutions were able to turn off the credit spigots and hold a gun to the head of the American people that they'd crash the economy if Congress didn't pay out hundreds of billions. What did Americans do? They called their Congress members, screamed and complained, but when came time to actually give the money over to the banks, the US people didn't do a goddamned thing. They didn't even vote out the people in Congress that made it happen. They just sat there and took it. And are they still raging about it today? No, they aren't. The American people are complacent, fat and lazy. They're going to have to be thoroughly soaked to actually get out there and affect political change.

    "A lot" probably isn't the word, "some" would be more appropriate. Full auto weapons are not cheap and they no pierce vehicle armor. The government has more political power and more physical power than the people. You just can't rely on revolutions to just up and happen on their own.

    Well than you admit it has a chance of happening as well.

    As I said here we do have recourse, in England they don't.

    The Brits sold themselves out 60 years ago. Now, it's time to pay the piper.

    Sure the people, they can launch a peasants revolt like they did centuries gone by. They will still probably be crushed though.

    Look pal, I'm trying to say "hey why don't we try to PREVENT the abuses from occurring, rather than letting the government impoverish us so much that we have no other recourse than to revolt." I mean, if you hate people and you want them to suffer as much as possible, then I can understand where you're coming from with your comments, but I would prefer people to begin DEFENDING WHAT THEY HAVE and revolting before it's all gone rather than lose everything and then fight.

    America won it's independence through violence and it seems as though over the time since then we've become so fat and lazy we just assume this is how the revolutionary war was won. America is a nation of peasants; you are a peasant and if you need to be wiped out before you come to terms with reality, then you're going to suffer more than you would had you done something about it sooner.

    ..So you hate him because the group of people who he's enciting hate against is YOUR group? If that's not what you're implying, maybe you should edit this or something...

    I don't want to be too polarizing, but I find some Americans to be so self-righteous sometimes. The UK is in a very different situation to the US. America is a country where white Christians (or white Christian values) are still a HUGE majority. The UK, and Europe, is NOT like that! Europe has a HUGE Muslim population, a pretty hefty Jewish population,and a mutitude of other races, faiths and groups besides. On top of this, Europe has just appointed one of its (overall) most racist group of representatives since the abolishment of slavery. Maybe it's a bit rash, but isn't it kind of understandable that the English courts might be keen to send a message to it's EXPLODING non-white, non-Christian, non-British population that they're not going to put up with hate messages? Free speech is important, but did you SEE what happened in Europe when that Danish newspaper printed pictures of Mohammed with a bomb vest on? That sort of minority rage is a real danger in Europe compared to America.

    I mean, you're right, free speech is definitely being threatened in this case, but just because most of you guys live in the "land of the (debateably, comparatively) free", doesn't mean that every other country has the same issues surrounding free speech that America does... right?
