More conservative crap from the “I am counting on you being completely uneducated and without any intellectual curiosity whatsoever” right wing base.
I am endlessly fascinated by how the far right uses fear, hate and ignorance to unite their base. I have been following these groups on Facebook for a few months to observe their messages and the conversations that follow. Here is yet another example where information is deceptively pieced together to intentionally mislead their followers. The scary thing is that you only have to do a quick search and a couple of clicks to find out the truth. Here was my response and I look forward to the hate mail I am sure to receive for offering the facts.
This is completely misleading. The U.K. has a much broader definition of violent crime than the US. They include burglaries, purse snatching and bike theft as a violent crimes. This graphic stems from a story put out in a tabloid by Conservative Britains, not by the EU or UN. You still have a much better chance of getting murdered and raped in the US than the UK. and btw…most people are murdered by the way of guns in the US.
U.S. 2009 murder rate: 5 per 100,000.
U.K. 2009 murder rate: 1.49 per 100,000.
So the question should be “Who is a dumbass for not banning guns?”

There is nothing more annoying than opening the dishwasher to put away your clean dishes only to discover that the person you live with added dirty dishes right next to the clean dishes. Suddenly, the next 10 minutes are spent trying to separate the clean silverware from the forks that have peanut butter smeared all over them and picking off spaghetti from your brand new Pottery Barn melamine salad plates. 10 minutes that you would rather spend doing just about anything else in this world.
It’s like, don’t think this qualifies as “doing the dishes” on your turn to do the dishes night. Next time open your eyes you lazy fuck.
