    The DHS is really out of control. It's getting to the point of ridiculousness between this story and the stories about the TSA, I fear my country has really lost their minds when it comes to security.

    Oh, this subject has become such fun. You can almost predict how successful people will be in the future based on their ignorance of the rapidly-increasing collapse and restructuring of society.

    Like I have said at least 50 times of this forum before, it is Ron Paul or bust. All your little circle jerk threads about get rich quick schemes dont work in an unstable and unpredictable business environment, let alone an unstable and unpredictable society.

    The success now comes from wealth preservation and the ability to make decisions extremely quickly with minimum bias (next to impossible).

    So the DHS is now watching twitter...

    Maybe somebody should start hashtag #destroyamerica and overwhelm those fuckers.

    I remember a few years ago there was a huge campaign where everyone was adding a string of "watch words" to their emails. So when some guy was emailing his friend shooting the shit about some porn movie, he would add a load of words like bomb, wedding, president and so on...

    Note to DHS, this be a joke. Please dont arrest me :p

    If there is 1 thing I cant stand its people taking the piss out of those less fortunate than themselves. Specifically the handicapped. I do a ton of work for charity as my cousin suffers from Downs and your flippant attitude towards them has seriously made me angry.

    Dude chill, I am sure he didn't mean to cause offence, we all have different styles of humour. As above, yes it is offensive material as such, but it isn't meant to offend (I am probably sounding a bit hypocritical, but I am sure some people catch what I mean).

    @Pic poster, G-S-T does have a point so would be nice for a swap.

    Wow that is pathetic, they need to learn the Lingo from the UK.

    By saying your going to destroy something basically means your going to party hard...

    Edit: Also i agree with what GST said I was going to de-rep you but i dont think i can or know how too.

    Or as a friend once said:

    "Jesus, I'd demolish her"

    Some contexts are better not explained.

    Offence or not, if you had seen half the shit my aunty and uncle have had to bare then you would retract your statement.

    I dont care if you walk with a limp or your severely disabled and cant even feed yourself. Mocking the disabled is low, its not even slightly funny. How would you feel if your child was born with down syndrome and some jerk posted a photo mocking her plight? Im not making threats, but if somebody pulled that shit in a local pub, i would drop the motherfucker where he stood.

    Wow....

    The US is probably worse than China or Russia by now.

    Why?
    Here's why.

    Team America: World Police. You wanted to attack the Iraqis and Afghanis - Ok we let you slide on that one because Osama was hiding out in a cave and called shots that caused thousands of deaths. Iraq was just another strike because there was an evil dictator that was taunting the US (Just like Kim).
    Now you want to control the Internet because some corporate pigs are paying your politicians off in bribes or *cough* support (lobbyism) *cough*. Instead of focusing on the Internet, how about you bring your own country out of recession first and slice the unemployment rate in half before you start cashing in on controlling the Internet. It is getting to a point where everything US touches turn to shit.

    What are the US good for? Buying products on borrowed credit. Let's go back to the recession again - fix it.

    Your World Police wasn't around (or to be found) when Wall Street screwed up in 2008. Somehow they are around when taking down some insignificant websites that do not cause the 8.X% unemployment you have at the moment.

    And now this...DHS watching Twitter because some brits cracked a joke or two. What's next? That we get arrested for voicing our opinion?

    Land of the Free? Doubtful. Land of the Opportunities? Probably not. Land of the Free Speech? What free speech? Land of the Communists that hide under a flag with stars, stripes and an eagle? Indeed it is.

    Glad to know China will be the #1 world power within the next 10 years. As seen the migration of westerners to China, learning Mandarin and pushing jobs out there. The US? Sure you can swim in your own pond and buy products from China. Know that this is your last chance to redeem yourself - you probably won't redeem anything. Good day and good riddance.

    Oh and btw...How's your tourism going? You get many visitors or just Russian immigrants? LOL

    I think this is ridiculous. Everyday americans like me say way more outrageous things online and aren't even looked at (that we know of)...I think this is just another example of how we're starting to mirror countries like China in terms of invasive, unnecessary internet scrutiny and control.
