UK’s “Pay as you Throw” Program: Garbage Weight is Monitored by Microchip in your Garbage Can! What’s Next?

The growing threat of a stealth tax on the rubbish we throw away was exposed by startling figures yesterday.
More than 2.5million homes now have wheelie bins fitted with microchips to weigh their contents.
This is an increase of nearly two-thirds in just a year. The bins, which can be electronically identified and weighed, are designed for ‘pay-as-you-throw’ rubbish tax schemes.

Far- right Dutch MP Geert Wilders faces Muslim protest after arriving in the UK
By Kirsty Walker
Last updated at 12:57 AM on 17th October 2009
Right-wing politician Geert Wilders finally arrived in Britain yesterday to be greeted by angry protests from radical Muslims.
The Dutch MP overturned a Government ban to arrive for a brief visit guarded by a heavy police presence.
He had been barred in February amid fears he would incite violence by showing his controversial film linking the Koran to terrorism.
For Full Story:
NOTE: Hotels in Florida and Tennessee were threatened by CAIR and other Muslim organizations if they allowed Gaeert Wilder to speak at functions.

Is There a ‘Right’ to Health Care?
by Theodore Dalrymple
If there is a right to health care, someone has the duty to provide it. Inevitably, that “someone” is the government. Concrete benefits in pursuance of abstract rights, however, can be provided by the government only by constant coercion.
People sometimes argue in favor of a universal human right to health care by saying that health care is different from all other human goods or products. It is supposedly an important precondition of life itself. This is wrong: There are several other, much more important preconditions of human existence, such as food, shelter and clothing.
Everyone agrees that hunger is a bad thing (as is overeating), but few suppose there is a right to a healthy, balanced diet, or that if there was, the federal government would be the best at providing and distributing it to each and every American.
Where does the right to health care come from? Did it exist in, say, 250 B.C., or in A.D. 1750? If it did, how was it that our ancestors, who were no less intelligent than we, failed completely to notice it?
If, on the other hand, the right to health care did not exist in those benighted days, how did it come into existence, and how did we come to recognize it once it did?
After 60 years of universal health care, free at the point of usage and funded by taxation, inequalities between the richest and poorest sections of the population have not been reduced. But Britain does have the dirtiest, most broken-down hospitals in Europe.

Conservatives racing ahead in EU parliament voting

First projections by the European Union showed center-right parties would have the most seats — between 263 and 273 — in the 736-member parliament. Center-left parties were expected to get between 155 to 165 seats.
Right-leaning governments were ahead of the opposition in Germany, France, Italy and Belgium, while conservative opposition parties were leading in and .

Isn’t it time for him to go home yet? It is good, in theory, that the new President of the United States is taking so much time to tour Europe. He arrived in London last Tuesday, has been to Strasbourg, Prague yesterday and now he’s off to Turkey. It shows, I suppose, that he cares about the outside world and that is ‘A Good Thing’. But his long stay means that we are hearing rather a lot from him, way too much in fact.
His speeches have long under-delivered, usually leaving a faintly empty sensation in this listener even though I welcomed, moderately, his victory last year as offering the possibility of a fresh start and a boost to confidence.
Yet, we are told that he is a great orator and in one way he certainly is. He does have a preternatural calm in the spotlight and a mastery of the cadences we associate with the notable speakers in US history – such as JFK and MLK. But beyond that, am I alone in finding him increasingly to be something of a bore?
BE SURE TO READ THE COMMENTS (Here are a few):
How bout you guys keep him for awhile longer? Cant we try and make a trade? lol…yeah, we arent too happy with him over in the states.
Yes, Iain -
And, 47% of us realized this a year ago when you couldn’t get enough of him. It’s a shame you and Hannan couldn’t have come out of your Zombie-like trance a bit sooner.
You are realizing what many of us in the US realized many months before our presidential election: the Emperor has no clothes.

One of President Obama’s first decorating acts after the Inauguration was to have a bust of Winston Churchill removed from the Oval Office. The Churchill bust was a gift to the United States, from Tony Blair on behalf of Great Britain, to commemorate the relationship between the two nations after the 9-11 attacks. Obama is said to have had no regard for the nature of the gift, and it is alleged that the “gift” is now at the British Embassy in Washington DC.
So, after having met with Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the White House on Tuesday, but not having the customary press conference with the two leaders, President Obama spoke with the Prime Minister, and in a detailed release of the phone call, President Obama thanked the Prime Minister for the gifts he brought with him. The release also noted where Obama has placed the gifts: a pen holder from the HMM Gannett has been placed on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, and a first-edition copy of Winston Churchill’s biography has been placed in Obama’s private study adjacent to the Oval Office.
So, is this guy a buffoon or what? Returning gifts from a Nation? Do you think that those who voted for him realized he had the etiquette and class of a buffoon!!??

I received this in an email today, and thought it was well worth sharing:
When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was
asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an
example of empire building by George Bush. He answered by saying:
‘Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young
men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The
only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those
that did not return.’
You could have heard a pin drop.
There was a conference in France where a number of international
engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break,
one of the French engineers came back into the room saying ‘Have you heard
the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to
Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb
them?’ A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:
‘Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several
hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical
power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to
feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand
gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen
helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their
flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many doesFrance have?’
You could have heard a pin drop.
A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At
a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of
Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was
chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral
suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans
learn only English. He then asked, ‘Why is it that we always have to speak
English in these conferences rather than speaking French?’ Without
hesitating, the American Admiral replied,
‘Maybe it’s because the British, Canadians, Australians and
Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.’
You could have heard a pin drop.
THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THOSE ABOVE…
Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by
plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in
his carry on. “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs
officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France
previously. “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.” The
American said, ”The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”
“Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in
France!” The American gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly
”Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help
liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchmen to show a passport
You could have heard a pin drop.
If you are proud to be an American, pass this on!
