Common sense is not that common

These are the same Issue in France and the way they help the poor unemployed Hmm-mm! England, France etc....... why the Governments only talk about how they will use any force at their disposal the stop the riots. but before the riots broke out they had no force to at their disposal to Educate, train, employ, include in society and fed the elderly. Where was the money then for those services. when England is burning all the governments good for is beating, shooting,chasing the same people they thought should be poor, quiet, and out of sight, now they are in everyone sights. Educate, train, include in society and employ befits all.

"UK" riots

Would welcome a little accuracy ion your headlines and general coverage - the riots have taken place throughout England - the other three constituents of the United Kingdom are unaffected (as yet) and until they are, your content should reflect this fact.

Common sense is not that common

Pitsligo from your base of analysis you have not correctly gotten the point which in fact proves the theory that common sense is not that common read do a careful analyses then reply. These riots took place in England is that no true get a map and look at it you will see the location of the riots are in England FACT.


One thing that keeps me going doing my runs is the mantra The body can do what the mind is winillg . Motivation must come from within. I don't allow myself to be tormented by food all the time. I'm done with that. I run and lift weights because that makes me feel good about myself. It's better than eating a pint of Hagen Daz! The awesome thing about weight loss is that people discover what terrific bone structure and jaw lines their faces have under all that chubbiness! Exercise = Youthfulness

Common sense is not that common

A regular Joe

Firstly, Pitsligo's comment was not in response to your post, nor aimed at you at all. It was commenting on the news article we all just read, where the heading referred to the "UK Riots".

Secondly, the point being made was that the heading is inaccurate - so far the riots have been isolated to England. Yes, England is in the UK - no-one is disputing that. The point remains that no riots have taken place in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland and therefore it's inaccurate to describe them as UK riots.

I think you just proved your own point about common sense. Perhaps you should take your own advice - read, analyse CAREFULLY and then reply.
