Wow - thanks, I guess, for being "the Dick". I'd usually think it's kind of unusual that someone would just jump right in to play the perfect opposite to one of the most inspirational offerings here but let's face it - you did it and even chose your guest name well. And in the end, even your spew just makes her stronger.

Thank you very much! it was my intention. I usually write the things that people think but don't say because of PC pieces of Sheit such as yourself, trying to guilt people into censoring themselves. This comment is only to let you know that i don't give a flying fu*k about what you think, i'll continue to be a "dick" whenever i feel like it, hence the name i chose for myself, which you redundantly pointend out with the aid of you unfounded felling of moral superiority. oh, and i almost forgot... fu*k you :) 8===D

She's a propaganda tool to bring hope where there is none and distract people from what they should really care about, the real problems of society, but she's there "sedating" people into thinking "hey, we could have it much worst, things are not as bad as i thought". Well fu*k that and fu*k all of you politically correct cu*ts who make that possible.

Another great example of someone born disavantaged that worked hard and was successful. She was right that everyone is in the driver seat of their car and makes choices on where that car goes. This goes to show you that people who live off the system are not trying very hard and it's really their own fault. Turn off that TV and get off the couch and look for a real job instead of consuming my tax dollars and the community getting nothing from you in return. Certainly if this woman can do it, almost anyone else can too.

Your comment is too simplistic. These situations are far too multi-factorial to be reductionistic and say it all boils down to the individual. Although it is true that people who work hard sometimes succeed, many people who work even harder don't. You are also neglecting the fact that she was incredibly well supported by her family, who were almost certainly not destitute, and that she was born in a country with relatively good health-care (although certainly not free), state-run education and many other factors that were not her own doing. Choices become much more limited when you live in a country where those things are not available or if you live in a family where you are daily beaten and told you are stupid and worthless, or if your family sold the last goat to send you to another country to earn lots of money working as a construction worker, only to discover you are working for 1/10th of the promised wage. These factors have nothing to do with hard work, but are the reality for most of the world's population. In some parts of America, for some people, your comment might be true, but the logic overall is fallacious.

Since I was talking about the United States of America, my comment is still accurate. I don't care what taxes people pay in other countries. If the UK wants to tax their people 100% and give all that money to the poor and give everyone universal healthcare, that's fine with me. As long as I'm not part of it and you guys enjoy your system, then that's great. Basically, this is all about people complaining that they work at McDonalds for 10 years with 4 kids and they are mad at McDonalds for not paying them enough to support their entire family. Being in the United States of America, that woman has the opportunity to better herself and do something with her life. I didn't tell her to have those kids and I certainly didn't tell her to work at McDonalds for the rest of her life. Those were choices she made.

i have this friend of mine, he was in the back seat of his car, the dad was driving the mom was on the passenger seat; so he was driving along (the dad was), you know, making his own choices, his own decisions just like the sick girl in the video... when the front left swing-arm on the car broke at 100kmh and steered them into a lorry coming from the other side. The mom died, the dad was in the hospital paralyzed from the waist down for a year and my friend had to go under facial reconstructive surgery! that'll teach them for making bad choices, fu*k them, they deserved it! those socialist bastards! (good thing we live in a civilized country where we have a national healthcare system and social nets for stuff like this). And in return for your tax dollars you're getting to walk on the street without getting stabbed by some hungry freeloader. Oh wait, you live in america... i meant shot and killed. Good thing you said "almost anyone", so what about those who can't? fu*k them, right? i honestly don't understand why you would preffer to have the hungry lazy freeloaders in jail than on the outside! i mean, if they're outside, you get you're tax dollars to buy them food, education and what not, if they're in jail they get free healthcare, free meals, all sorts of benefits and it costs you more than it would if you were to pay for education and meal tickets if the freeloaders are on the outside... not to mention that they probabbly had to rob your misses to get in prison... and now she's going through reconstructive surgery because of that bullet to the face, and your private insurance doesn't cover it, even if you thought it did, HA for not reading the nano-print on the contract. It just doesn't make any sense! your way of thinking just doesn't make any sense to me, and every time we make some progress ... you quit and start over on a different post, as if you're putting your fingers in your ears and yelling "i'm not hearing you! blah blah!" . The only way you make sense is if you're a right wing propagadist that gets payd to do this daily on multiple sites under different nicknames, a complete and utter moron that actually believes what he is saying and reality just flies by over his head or a troll that talks sheit to piss off people because that's the only thing that makes him get it up anymore. I just don't see any logic and reasoning behind your ideology. And it's not just politics; you have the right wing stance on gmo, climate change, guns, everything except religion... and i'm not tat sure about your stance on religion. As far as i know, you claim you're an atheist because if you were to do otherwise you would lose all credibility on this site. You're reasoning just doesn't make any sense to me.

Not only do you need help with your reading comprehension, you cannot understand the videos either. It was obvious the car she was referring to was not a real car but a metaphor. If you didn't understand that then you are dumber than I initially thought.

i know only that you claim to be Carry England but i don't know how true that is. You could post in the "about" section of your facebook profile that you are the cengland0 of boreme.com , but that would be retarded, which is exactly why i like anonymity: it's a lot less retarded than making your identity public on every site you go to on the internet.

we agree for once! however, if you're not aware that there are crazy people out there on the internet, and that data theft and identity theft is a real issue, you will continue to provide your true data and identity on every website you post comments, with the risk of eventually meeting some crazy bloke in your geographic region that disagrees with what you have to say in such a manner that he is willing to brng the coflict to the real world. Anonymity can be about embarrasement but it's mostly about safety. You only claim to be Cary England , A banker, but you didn't really do anything to prove it , did you?? and you won't do it either because it's not safe. Besides, how do i know you aren't the one who stole Cary England's identity? i mean, we've even seen it happen on boreme. How do i know Cary England isn't a completly ficticious character with accounts on multiple sites?? i don't know, so you're pathetic attempt into shaming me to renounce my anonymity is futile. You want us to know that cengland0 is actually Cary England?? then film yorself whislt mentioning boreme, post it on youtube, and link us. And even at that point, we still don't know if Cary England actually exists or if it's just a crazy guy filming himself and postign it on youtube, pretending to be some other guy. There's not much you can do to convince me that you're not a right wing, pro gmo, denialist, shale gas propagandist, corporate oligarchy defender, codger troll. And you're not manipulating me by trying to shame me into renouncing my anonymity, so fu*k you for trying!

First things first. I never claimed to be anyone. Someone on this site did some research and discovered my identity and public facebook page. You can look at any of my past messages and you will never see me tell you my name. Others state it all the time but I never do. Secondly, with all the banker bashing that goes on here you think I would pick banking as what I do knowing that I'm going to be subjected to scrutiny unless I really was a banker?

there's no limit to trolling, so yes, you could troll even on banking. As far as i know, you chose to call yourself a banker in an attempt to convay authority to your comment (same goes for calling yourself an atheit) whilst getting the data from the propagandist main station."you will neve see me tell my name" good thing you didn't say Cary England and replaced it with "my name"... is Cary England even your real name? you know what, i don't even care, you're just the right wing, pro gmo, corporate oligarchy defender, shale gas propagandist, manipulative liar codger troll. I don't even know why i bother with you anymore... decent comments or negative motivation. (well negative motivation is a lot more fun to be honest... i'll probabbly keep doing that).
