If I were Ms Manners
For all of you manner freaks out there - yes, you know who you are, you're the ones who object to being called assholes or told to fuck off - anyway, for all of you strange people who don't like insults, check out Modern Manners
, there are some interesting questions and answers about contemporary etiquette. Like this one for example:
"I am moving into a new flat. What advice do you have for my getting on with my neighbours?"
The columnist advises to make friends with them. I say, avoid them like hell. What do you say?
Okay, seriously. What is your biggest complaint about manners and what advice would you give? I think you can guess what mine is.

Afghan Christian convert faces death penalty; test for Karzai
Abdul Rahman is an Afghan who converted to Christianity while abroad. He has been a Christian for 14 years; after trying to regain custody of his daughters from their grandparents, they reported him for apostasy and he was thrown in jail and sentenced to death.
The poor bastard is refusing to renounce Christianity, so if America does not lean on Karzai, he will probably be martyred for his faith. Note to Muslims: this is what martyrdom means, not blowing yourself up on a bus full of mothers and children.
An Afghan who has renounced his Islamic faith for Christianity faces the death penalty under Afghan law in a throwback to the brutal Taleban regime.
Abdul Rahman, 41, is being prosecuted for an "attack on Islam", for which the punishment under Afghanistan's draft constitution, is death by hanging.
The charge comes as Britain prepares to send 3,300 nominally Christian paratroopers to stabilise the troubled south of the country.
Mr Rahman converted to Christianity over 14 years ago, but his situation was bought to the attention of the authorities after he tried to gain custody of his daughters who had been living with their grandparents. His parents then denounced him as a convert and on arrest he was found to be carrying a Bible.
"The Attorney General is emphasising he should be hung. It is a crime to convert to Christianity from Islam. He is teasing and insulating his family by converting," Judge Alhaj Ansarullah Mawlawy Zada, who will be trying his case, told The Times.
"He was a Muslim for 25 years more than he has been a Christian. We will request him to become a Muslim again. In your country two women can marry I think that is very strange. In this country we have the perfect constitution, it is Islamic law and it is illegal to be a Christian and it should be punished," said the judge.
If Judge Zada, who is head of the Primary Court, passes the death penalty under Afghan law, Mr Rahman still has two avenues of appeal, the Provincial Court and the Supreme Court. The death penalty then has to be ratified by President Hamid Karzai.
The first sitting of Mr Rahman’s case was recently held and Judge Zada said a verdict will be reached within two months. The case is being viewed as a test of religious freedom in post-Taleban Afghanistan.

Rantings of the last man in the queue
I want a strong man.
Is it about money?
Tell me. Let me know. Tell me if it is and we’ll all know and behave accordingly. I might actually sell my soul for a bit of dosh too, you know? Wanna a slice of my territory? Let’em pay my pension and eff the future of my culture. Why not? What has my culture done for me? I owe money left, right and centre, I am forever paying bills and long gone is citizenship. We’re customers now.
Is it because of power?
You want a super-state, un-elected leadership, post-democratic Europe? And you need the breakdown of State-hood into un-bordered, melting pot for this?
Tell me. Have that face; sell me a “one Europe one People” vision. But you sell nothing. Bland, faceless, far bureaucracy to conceal nothing but immense business deals of every kind and magnitude. Politics? What politics! Baby, we’re here for the money. True Machiavelism. In the hands of few true motherfuckers, we are dealt like cards on a table. Again, hey; what’s in it for me? I’ll just throw in a token revolt and then just lay back and think of …well…fill that gap by yourself really. I’ll think of getting ready for that just one day.
Because the day is coming.
The cultural impotence you have castrated yourself into has scraped the barrel and now you can’t keep a lid on the dirty deal. Like at the beginning of last century when “so many Italian labourers-so many bags of carbon” trade used to go on between Italy and Belgium….we have been traded similarly with oil and Islam.
But it’s not working and it will not work because even if Fini has become part of the system, if Le Pen is old, if Fortuyn is dead, if Griffin has bread crumbles on his jacket, if only Milosevic had pussyfooted just a tiny bit, another one is still due. All you need is one with a bit of “oral skills” and this time, we’re all mush.
Europeans are ready to buy a Strong Man and one is likely to spring up soon.
The signs are there yet, for the sake of God-dollar you are not just selling the furniture, you’re selling the family as well. It looks like there is no awareness of what will happen with these demo-porno-graphic-trends. Yes, pornographic because they are obscene. Because they have modelled an economic system that needs and feeds on continual growth (not a bad idea in itself) and so, when men were not enough anymore; females found a two-faced emancipation. On man’s term. You’re not one or the other; you’re both but still get paid for one. I thought that was a clever move. Now you are equal to me, you go to work. Well done, ;-) But me no equal bunny. Me no wash, cook, clean etc regular as if expected by some obscure and chauvinist law of nature as it happens for you. Yours is that gift. Still, essentially, having to choose between an occupation/aspiration and motherhood should not happen. Society should be organised in a way that allows that automatically, naturally. But it never was. Child-caring costs a fortune and is never convenient.
Consequence=no food for the growth chain or tax payers
Ok. I got it finally.
You know you’ve messed up our pension funds and we need immigrants to pay for it? Couldn’t get the Poles in droves like now and the Muslims were the cheaper one when tied with oil deals? from which you have made and are making unimaginable amounts of money?
Tell me. Talk to me.
Because if you don’t, someone else soon will. And he’ll offer no deal and, no compromise. He’ll have no tolerance, want no statesmanship, show no restraint, feel no hesitation, bear no doubt.
He will scorn over The Man on the Moon against the man in a cave, he will defend and glorify me and then, there will finally be true no-hiding.
An iron-man to reshape Europe shaking her from her timidity and oppose Islam with a good rattle of swords. They'll quickly remember what wars Europeans starts...
A steel leader of the West to say: “Democracy; you are in or you are out” and make another UN based on this.
And if you are not in, the in world sends 10o.000 soldiers each. Or one sends 10 millions, I couldn't care less. From now, from today, I want to switch the TV on and see this person say " Now we are not playing anymore and this is exactly what would happen unless you modernise as from Monday. If you don't we start here. Yes here, exactly here, so whoever of you wants to fight and die, we can start here, say Tunisia.
And mean it. And do all of them. A campaign of 10 years. A Blitzkrieg from Morocco to Sudan to Indonesia. A Paris-Dakar of Democracy. Once and for good. Entire nations would crumble years before we even got to them and more importantly, years before they get an atomic bomb for the ultimate dhimmi blackmail.
No sleep to Mecca.
Is this crazy?
Are you sure that a nuclear holocaust is a better proposition?
Because something has got to happen now.
