Quote from: "Gangbuster Thorul"
I saw that thing you did on the other thread!

And I still hate* the fact that you didn't count cops as working class several months ago


Big brother sees all! Cheesy

Here is some thinking about cops as working class, from an intro history/sociology online syllabus in the UK:

Quote
(ii) The first police officers - Drawn from the lower working classes, the upper ranks were drawn from NCOs (Non-commissioned officers). There were four main reasons for appointing from the working classes.

They were cheap to employ
They understood those they policed
The upper classes actively distanced themselves from the lower orders
The idea of policing was felt to be distasteful to the upper classes, far too distasteful for gentlemen to be involved with, even 'reduced gentlemen'.
(iii) The function of the Metropolitan Police - To police the working, perceived as dangerous, classes by keeping the peace and bringing felons before the Magistrates in the (police) courts.

Whoa, this topic is turning into a quasi-political slugfest!  :twisted:

Also, I wasn't mentioned as a member of the "hate-parade" either. I have to say, that just hurts man!

I know I'm new here, but I'm sure I made it very clear how much I HHHHAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the "Superman Returns" swimsuit. He looks like a ballerina. I can just see him pirouetting through the evening sky on his tippie toes.

A bit of controversy always makes for good entertainment. Or at least interesting discussions.  

I greet all with this: "Julle moenie so onder mekaar baklei nie, seuns. Netnou kry julle gevoelentjies seer."    :shock:
Translate that!!  Ha!!*

(*Nothing derogatory, don't worry)

Cheers!!

I edited my last post to be more loving.

It's February after all and Valentine's is coming up.

Of course he does, because --- shhh! keep this to yourself --- his name is an anagram of "Luthor!"  :shock:

What I have learned so far...

1. TELLE might even be more socialist than me
2. Nightwing used the word "pinko," demonstrating that he is a curmudgeon and hater of both Paris, and progress!
3. A poster called "MatterEaterLad" is on this forum. He must have been here for quite some time, but I've just been skipping over all of his posts.
4. Not even negativity on the forums (or the recognition thereof) can overcome Valentine's Day.
5. And finally, Monkeys!

That's a great site, especially for the Noam Chomsky quote, but they missed some!
