Where do you think said voters learned?


I thought we agreed that as a nation we will blame Canada, not the Brits.



The "nation" never gave me a vote. Not that it matters. It generally ignores my vote anyway. I don't think it's listened to me since 1988.


Welcome to the democracy. The way it works is, we all get a vague illusion of having the power to choose our own fates, once every 4 years we get a reality check that our opinions really dont matter and then we spend the next 4 years complaining about it.

19th. In the 20th everyone generally blames the Russians.


Reminds me of this 'rating' of the Russians from Stripes:

Once you find out who to blame you have to punish them.

'Only an idiot': Examples of court-ordered shaming

By The Associated Press

A woman caught on camera driving on a sidewalk to pass a Cleveland school bus was ordered this week to hold a sign at the intersection reading, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus." It was the latest example of creative, and sometimes controversial, sentences handed out by judges to publicly shame offenders. Some other examples from around the country:

___

UTAH: PONYTAIL CUT OFF

The mother of a 13-year-old Utah girl chopped off her daughter's ponytail in court in order to reduce her community service sentence.

The teen had landed in court in May because she and another girl used dollar-store scissors to cut off the hair of a 3-year-old they had befriended at a McDonald's.

A judge agreed to reduce the teen's community service time if her mother chopped off her daughter's ponytail in court. The mother has since filed a formal complaint, saying the judge in Price intimidated her into the eye-for-an-eye penalty.

___

HOUSTON: 'I AM A THIEF'

Daniel and Eloise Mireles were convicted of stealing more than $265,000 from the crime victims fund in Harris County, Texas.

In addition to restitution and jail time, the Houston couple were sentenced in July 2010 to stand in front of the local mall for five hours every weekend for six years with a sign reading, "I am a thief."

A sign was also posted outside their house stating they were convicted thieves.

___

PENNSYLVANIA: 'I STOLE FROM A 9-YEAR-OLD'

Western Pennsylvania residents Evelyn Border and her daughter, Tina Griekspoor, 35, were caught stealing a gift card from a child inside a Wal-Mart.

In November 2009, the Bedford County district attorney said he would recommend probation instead of jail time because the women stood in front of the courthouse for 4 1/2 hours holding signs reading, "I stole from a 9-year-old on her birthday! Don't steal or this could happen to you!"

___

WISCONSIN: 'I WAS STUPID'

A man who crashed his car into the gates at a Wisconsin waste water treatment plant spent eight hours holding a sign saying, "I was stupid."

Shane McQuillan decided he would rather do that than spend 20 days in jail on a charge of criminal damage to property.

McQuillan had a blood alcohol level of 0.238 percent, nearly three times the legal limit for driving, at the time of the 2008 accident in Eau Claire.

___

OHIO: 'SORRY FOR THE JACKASS OFFENSE'

An Ohio judge ordered a man and woman who vandalized a baby Jesus statue in a church's outdoor nativity to march through town with a donkey to apologize.

Jessica Lange and Brian Patrick admitted to defacing the statue at St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church on Christmas Eve 2003. They led a donkey provided by a petting zoo through the streets of Fairport Harbor carrying a sign that said, "Sorry for the jackass offense."

After the 30-minute march, the pair were taken to serve 45-day sentences that included drug and alcohol treatment. They also were ordered to replace the statue.

___

TEXAS: FROM COURTHOUSE TO DOGHOUSE

Curtis Robin Sr. made a deal with Texas prosecutors to spend 30 consecutive nights in a 2-by-3-foot doghouse after pleading guilty to whipping his stepson with a car antenna.

Robin served the sentence outside his home in Vidor in 2003 so he could avoid jail time and continue working as a foreman for a demolition company.

Police were assigned to randomly check on Robin to ensure he was in the doghouse each night from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Robin was allowed to have a sleeping bag, mosquito netting, plastic tarp or similar protective items.

Sounds like a good idea. You do have to be an idiot to drive on the pavement to avoid a schoolbus. Especially as the schoolbus usually contains kids.

Give them the choice, either a sign telling the world they're an idiot or an all expenses paid stay at your local correctional facility. We'll soon see how many think the punishment is cruel then.

Exactly. It-by definition-cannot be cruel if agreed to by the defendant.

Considering the state of English cuisine, it would look equally unappetizing.

Ah yes, because Russo-American cuisine is widely noted for being so good!

And why do you chaps seem to put cheese on everything? It's not even real cheese really. No matter how grim our food looks, we English can safely say we were not the crazies who invented candied bacon. Nor did we put candied bacon anto a peanut butter filled doughnut We also do not use doughnuts as burger buns or wrap fish and pork in leaves and stew them for hours

I've seen Man vs Food, we're well aware of what you lot shovel down your gullets!

Do you honestly think anyone would watch that show if everyone ate like that? Does the term "freak show" mean anything to you? Seriously , I thought even Brits know that most television is entertainment, not documentory! You lot are probably still waiting for Gilligan and his bunch to get of that $%^^&&&^%$# Island!
