what he said was "I'm a bit of a neocon" 

Nothing wrong with that really. Only a f(t)ool agrees in totality with any party's line.

If you rtfa, it is rather reasonable.

"I thought he [Romney] was throwing the money in such buckets and I thought Obama looked, looked tired," Townshend said of the presidential election.

And yet they still lost. This election proved that even Citizens United couldn't buy the entire government from the people.

There's hope yet, even in America.

jrw8778: Mose:Everyone I've ever heard comment about it since just assumes he is.

I think you're naive. Everyone who gets caught says "I was just doing research." Additionally his response was lacking reason: the only reason to observe child pronography is for purient purposes and/or official proceedings related thereto. Whatever he was researching, the focus would not have been on child porn, but the effects of it. Which you can safely do by supporting victims of that crime, without downloading CP.


I hope your permanently recorded, illegally wiretapped internet history gets read by the "authorities" some day, and can't wait to watch you wiggle and squirm on the hook as you try to defend 1/10th of the shiat you have accidentally clicked on, stumbled across, or didn't even look at, but was seen by someone else on your router after the power went out that one time and it went back to the wide-open out-of-box default settings...

judgemental cocksucking armchair warriors who weren't there deserve that kind of instant karma, you bigoted, self-righteous prick. If he had been guilty, the authoritarian Scotland Yard would have been all too happy to make him suffer for life; just look at Gary Glitter!

I'm not defending the guy, don't know him, and I'm probably as cynical as the next guy. But it'd be pretty shiatty for him if he isn't actually a pedo, the way things went. Everyone I've ever heard comment about it since just assumes he is.


Pedos deserve to burn. Townsend was *thoroughly* investigated and cleared. This has been covered time and time again on Fark, and there have been mountains of evidence presented proving that he was just a guy who let morbid curiosity get the best of him, same as anyone who may have accidentally clicked on a goatse or /b/ or something. It's good to be cynical, but even after all of the evidence for his actual cooperation and relative innocence had been presented, there are still the die-hards out there like the 'tard who replied to you earlier that will refuse to listen to reason and want to happily join a lynch mob like the evil sheep in Alabama that are all to happy to murder an accused black man in the early 1960s. Be glad you aren't one of those mindless monsters that ignore the law and think they are above it.

I'm a "bit of a neocon" myself. A bit. I don't see what the problem is. We all have different colored streaks in our undergarments than the stain we put forward publicly. He makes music, who cares what he thinks, anyway? I personally hate the who's music. Damn owls.

i should add that strauss and his proteges believed that western morals were inherently superior and should be spread by the sword if necessary.

Phil Moskowitz: How many of you know what a Straussian is?


i do. leo strauss. university of chicago. mentor to paul wolfowitz and other liberals-turned-neocons. an elitist who believed the great unwashed were not intelligent enough to know what's good for them.

jrw8778: A pedo with a charity for kids? Hrm, where have I heard this one before?


Is there a betting pool speculating on the names of the four as-yet-undisclosed music-connected celebs who took part in the Jimmy So Vile Follies? If I was a betting man, Pete would be on my list.

And this is why you should hope you're never falsely accused of any sort of sex crime, especially involving a kid. Even if you're innocent, and it's proven in a court of law several times over, you're still always guilty in the eye of the public.

FWIW, I don't think Pete's a pedo, probably because I read up on what actually happened rather than just blindly jumped on the "Pete's a pedo" bandwagon of public herp-derp.

Daltrey says the program, which is expanding into the United States after operating in the UK for the last decade, is improving care for teenagers with cancer. "It's looking like between ten and fifteen percent improvement of the medicine, just by giving them a space of their own, so that they can be teenager," Daltrey said.

Wow, those are some pretty High Numbers.
