    After blitz of the Ritz, it's the siege of Fortnum & Mason: Anarchists hijack the ant

    Looks like Socialist spending caught up with England. We face much the same thing in many States here.


    Anti-cuts demo: Protesters occupy Fortnum & Mason as half a million march on London | Mail Online

    * Hooded anarchists throw paint and set off flares on Oxford Street
    * Police targeted with missiles and light bulbs filled with ammonia
    * Windows at The Ritz smashed as masked youths run wild
    * Anti-capitalist smash banks and cash points in city centre rampage
    * Five police officers injured in clashes, one seriously
    * Labour leader Ed Miliband likens protest to anti-apartheid movement

    These are the scenes in central London tonight as riot police struggle to control anti-capitalist protesters following the TUC's national demonstration against the cuts.

    Bankers and hedge fund managers' gambling broke capitalism is what happened, and half a million middle class marchers called on the Conservative government not to make the poor, the elderly and the disabled be the ones who pick up the tab..

    Don't work out, work in.

    Scapegoating and emotional rationalizations.

    Those groups cost the government the most money and so many support the government programs for them, it's inevitable that they would of been cut.

    You got what you wished for.
    Don't like the results, don't outsource personal responsibility and charity to the government.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The Community Development Act of 1977 caused loans to be issued to people who otherwise were wholly unqualified. This contributed a great deal to the housing market collapse.

    The excessive pay and benefits payed to Government workers who belong to Unions were major contributers to State and Federal Budgets being in trouble.

    Wall Street speculators did help screw up the economy but so did over spending by the Federal Government before Obama came along and did nothing but things worse with schemes and projects that did nothing to help the economy.

    If that 685 billion had been passed out to every man and woman in the country, we would have spent the money on consumer goods and new cars and the economy would have been on the road to recovery in a big way last year.

    We also have been overrun with as many as 20,000,000 illegals that cost us Billions in social services.

    As I said it the OP England is paying the price in large part because of Socialism.

    They also have a problem with massive amounts of immigration from the third world.

    In a similar thread someone pointed out that 98.8% of the protesters were peaceful. My only regret is that the headlines didnt read "98.8% of Peaceful Protesters in London Beat Down 1.2% of Mindless Anarchist ****heads and Turn Them Over to Police"

    Estimates have ranged from 250,000 to 500,000 total protesters and the police took down and arrested 250 Anarchists, who were breaking windows and setting fires in the streets.

    Anarchists should be treated as harshly as possible, they have no morals and do crazy stuff all over the mostly free world.

    Personally I wouldn't fight with them I would treat them as looters and give them one chance to comply with orders then shoot the dumb bastards, if they failed to. It might get them to stop trying to be such weenies.

    Anarchists like anarchy when the response of the people they oppose are limited by the rule of law.
