In the 60s USA you had the Weather Underground, a leftist outfit against the war in Vietnam who were labelled (by the state) as terrorists, and then in the UK you had the IRA who were labelled terrorists by the UK government. Maybe somewhere in South America you h...

Muslims in the West

The West is currently destroying the Middle East - and has murdered people there on a genocidal scale - and it's ongoing. In recent history it was the US along with its followers who went into Afghanistan to kill Osama. This bled into Iraq - the war on terror - and other countries followed - Libya -...

Re: Poetry here.

I'm up shit creek without a paddle
How did I get here
What horrendous thing did I do

I'm being punished for that, now
That's crazy and something I've created solely in my head

It is hardly ever coming from the speaker - there are speech writers of course - the public figure reads out the words penned by another or group of others - this is no problem supposedly with t...
