Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Are there no work houses? Why yes, yes there are....sorta::
Unspeakable, unregenerate Millgram authoritarians. This is the kkkulture that had soldiers using pliers to rip the nipples off Kikuyu women in Kenya by way of "interrogation" and then lied about it for fifty years under their Official Secrets Act. Same group that used fascist Scottish peasants as murdering nation wide prison guards in Israel and Palestine during the Mandate. Same debased kkkrew that brought you the Falls Road in Belast and the Maze prison. Fuck fucking ameriKKKan Anglophilia.

JDM: Hey, don't hold back. Funny, the Brits now are seen as so civilized but man, ask the India weavers who had their thumbs removed so that English cloth mills could dominate not so many years ago. An imperialist is a monster no matter how nice they look or how posh the accent. GMB

Yep, Max. It galls me how the media there and here were playing up her sacrifice and service to the country, blah, blah, blah. As long as people are willing to bow to her and her fucking spawn, they are willing to accept that some humans are more equal because, well just because. Never. I will never accept it. What a disgraceful display. That said, you know the capitalists loved it--ca-ching! GMB

Well, to be contrarian, there's an argument to be made that having a head of state that's separate from the elected leader is not a bad thing. Here we combine the two positions, and accordingly treat the President somewhat like royalty. Would we be better off with a symbolic but largely powerless national figurehead, to host glittering receptions at the White House, and an elected political leader less surrounded by pomp and circumstance? Perhaps.

Max: There's more tied up with the monarcy bullshit. Namely, that the average joe is supposed to believe that these people with titles somehow earned them by being born of magic sperm or traveling through a noble vagina and the rest of us are supposed to bow to them. Hate it. There is no reason why the pomp and circumstance has to be so fucking over the top. A president or governor or other executive is a manager. Period. Like banking, government should be boring. GMB
