definitely,as is crime against property,though muslims under sharia law seem to have found an effective way of combatting it.........

to quote goosebumps

I would not worry too much about that,they will soon run out of spare parts,and sell off the fuel allocated to them,as generally happens with any of these first world aid projects to stone age people

Large amounts of cash are not allowed, there are limits on importing cash. The Mozambican Meticals cannot be exported... Gets complicated. The big problem is that you can never be fully informed what the law enforcement agencies like customs will come up with. It is worth mentioning that Mozambique has ordered French HSI 32 interceptors and Ocean Eagle 43 boats to patrol, to be delivered from next month. The searches at sea will increase abd we pray that the crew won't behave like the infamous traffic police of their country....
Thanks, that explains it well, it has been 35+ years since I have spent some time in North and Central Africa and one only remembers the good side of the experiences. I guess that is why we say "the good old days" so remember, some time in the future, what we experience now will become the good old days

You're more likely to get shot in a Florida Cracker Barrel Restaurant when a CC drops his gun that's you are by a terrorist.

Now we do need to kick some ass as far as ISIS goes but it has to be a strategy to somehow weaken and defeat without creating a mass propaganda tool for them to recruit more. Cutting off their internet access would be a good starting point.
Slanted news is great for gaining power on prevalent issues. Unfortunately the issues get extremely distorted by persons not capable or willing to get to the factual basis.

I think what he's saying is..
People with weapons are crazy dangerous with a lust for killing..
But.. its not the weapon that is to blame so they should not be banned..
However.. any act to stop him buying one infriges Human and Constituitional Rights.
Its all the Medias fault the situation exists as it does.. all they ever do is publish Negative News about weaponry and man..
How about some Good News Stories to balance things out.. something like..
'Donald Trump gets shot in Ass in hunting accident...'
Happy Days...������

Welcome to the Asylum..������

I rolled out this mornin' the kids had the mornin' news show on
Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon
Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy
It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy

There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band
One more sad story's one more than I can stand
Just once how I'd like to see the headline say
"Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because

Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down
Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
We sure could use a little good news today

I'll come home this evenin', I'll bet that the news will be the same
Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane
How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair
And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care
Whoa, tell me

Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today
And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play
And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA
We sure could use a little good news today

Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down
Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
We sure could use a little good news today

Re: Freedom of Movement Around Our Globe, Aftermath of Paris

My grandmother who has been dead for 30 years told me that the news was always bad and she refused to watch any of it. I don't go to that extreme but conventional news sources are definitely more about entertainment than they are about hard news. But to get back to the OP and the actual thread subject .... it seems clear that our freedom of movement in general is constrained by government over-reaction to "terrorism".

I particularly enjoy the irony when some tinpot dictatorship refers to "terrorist" incidents to justify heavy handed governmental action. Unfortunately its just the way of the world. My father picked up his driver's license at the post office by paying a nominal fee. I bought my first rifle at the local hardware store by showing up and paying for it. I still live in a village with no building code so I can build what I want, where I want, when I want and how I want. But all of those freedoms have been largely constrained by authority for most of us and there's no reason to think any of that is going to get less restricted. Governments love to govern and given the chance bureaucrats will increase their hold on our wallets and their interference in our lives.

As citizens we need to push back against heavy handed authority where we can. And we need to get out and enjoy our freedom where and when we can. Time to get back on the boat and untie the lines.

Re: Freedom of Movement Around Our Globe, Aftermath of Paris

With each new manufactured " Outrage " we lose more of our freedoms.
The yachting fraternity feels it both in the pocket, with yet another marina to relieve us of our hard earned shekels, and from some bureaucrat who wishes to justify his existence by making ours a misery.
For instance, I saw a horse and rider down by the river the other day ,she had a hi-vis jacket with " beware, horse and rider " printed on it. Still I haven't come to terms with the mindset of the health and safety gentleman who thought that one up.More worrying is the fact that the young people in England do not seem to think that this is odd.
Also , can someone please tell me were I can hide on this planet from someone who tells me to " be safe "

"Uhuru"
