Welcome to The Real Untrusted – for a brief introduction to this site – read here
“The citadel of established practice seldom falls to the polite knock of a good idea. It may however yield to a long siege, a pre-emptive strike, a wooden horse or a cunning alliance.”
We seem to struggle to get a dozen comments in a day any more, so I can’t see what the point is in putting a new one up every day.
And is it any surprise having just posted – “there are plenty of (white, ostensibly Christian) people in your own country whose views aren’t far off his”, about this report in the Independent:
Politicians in India’s largest and most politically important state have sparked outrage by claiming women who have sex outside of marriage should be hanged and that men who committed rape should be forgiven their “mistakes”.
I assume Ms Wildhack means her own country which she denigrates on a regular basis. As the quote is from Mulayam Singh Yadav, head of the Socialist Party (SP), which runs the state government in Uttar Pradesh, perhaps Montana could name one equivalent politician in the USA with similar views.
Reading the UT is like immersing yourself in abject pessimism where the depressed depress other depressed about the state of the world when this from 2013 says reality is somewhat different:

As from today – (sometime in early 2013) “A Change is gonna Come” and hence the track which is from almost 500, vaguely described as pop and rock, on my MP4 player that I use mainly when I’m running at the gym or outdoors, or when I’m doing things I rather not like ironing clothes, cleaning and so on. This one by coincidence comes top of the list when arranged in alphabetical order. Of course I’ll intersperse them with some great jazz and classical music.
