That is simple, (GUS needs challenging questions)

After the bang-up job he did "investigating" the FBI's actions in Waco, I have to wonder about the guy.

<<< The driving force and bigbucks behind his high court appointment was Senator John C. Danforth [R., Missouri]. Danforth has been the heir to the Ralston-Purina, pet food and other items, fortune. Thomas had been an office employee assisting Danforth. While Thomas was a Federal Appeals Judge in the District of Columbia Circuit, he made a decision, WITHOUT DISQUALIFYING HIMSELF AS HE WAS OBLIGATED TO DO UNDER FEDERAL STATUTES, favoring Danforth in eleven million dollars. Interesting detail Danforth won election to the U.S. Senate in 1976, where he remained for 18 years, as a result of a sabotaged plane crash removing his Democrat opponent. >>>

Intolerant Europeans hostile to immigrants

Brussels: Belgium and Greece are the European Union's most xenophobic countries and are more hostile towards the idea of a multicultural Europe than anyone else, a new report shows.

The European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia survey of more than 16,000 people found that 39 per cent of respondents said that legal immigrants who become unemployed in the EU should be forcibly repatriated, while 51 per cent believe that ethnic minorities increase unemployment rates.

Although overall tolerance levels have risen since the last poll in 1997, the survey revealed that many Europeans harbour serious concerns about mass immigration.

The survey officially classed 27 per cent of Greeks and one in four Belgians as intolerant compared to just 4 per cent of Spaniards. "People are more and more looking for scapegoats ... and are worried about the effects of migration," the centre's director, Ms Beate Winkler, said.

More than half of all Greeks polled disagreed that it was a good thing for a society to be made up of different races, religions and cultures, as did 35 per cent of Belgians. Almost 70 per cent of Greek and 50 per cent of Belgian respondents were negative about cultural diversity. "The statistics show that Europe needs immigrants and we have to prepare our populations for that," Ms Winkler said, adding that politicians were failing to promote the benefits of immigration.

In Britain 23 per cent of those polled said political asylum seekers who have suffered human rights violations in their countries of origin should not be accepted. That makes Britons the most hostile towards political refugees.
