How much the the US worships the Almighty $$$ drives me crazy. My country has become a nation of drooling consumerist idiots, as seen by Black Friday.

Yes, and look at what some of them do to become a "celeb". Rebecca Loos springs to mind.

Had an alleged affair with Beckham, masturbates a pig on TV and then comes out as a bisexual and then spends her time in men's magazines.

What a wonderful role model for our girls!

Still, at least Piggy was smiling.......

Importance of religion.

No way. Casual violence is great. It saves wasting time arguing with idiots and those who hide behind the fact they think you won't hit them.

But these days, it's a last resort, not the first. I'm civilised now.
