If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

Quote of the Day

From Guido:
A charity that relies in the main part on taxes is no more a charity than a prostitute is your girlfriend.
What oft was thought, but ne'er so well expressed.


  1. So is Suzi Leather really a Dame or a Madam?

  2. But Madame Fifi IS my girlfriend. Isn't she?

  3. Brian - you'd have to ask her. I could ask for you, if you like. She usually gets quite chatty after a few sherries.

    Anon - anything you say ...

  4. I know a chap who earns his living giving training seminars. His audience today were Charity Fund Raisers eager to learn new ways of raising income. "Their problem" he explained "is that they have become to reliant on Local authorities and now their funding is drying up".
    No surprises there since they are not real charities at all, just favoured pressure groupies.

  5. You said it. I'm glad they are complaining. It means less of my money is going to pay people who want to interfere with my life.

    As I have said before, I'll choose the charities I give my money to. If they are funded by the state, then I won't give, because I already have.
