    One Wonders wherever the Smiley Face Politicians Care a Toss

    Any One with a Brain and a Conscience can See that the Harassment of Disabled
    Sick People is a Evil Breach of Human Rights and the sort of Thing the 1933 to
    1945 National Socialists with their Evil Euthanasia and Eugenics would of Done.

    Then again the 24th of July 2012 Mark’s the 100th Anniversary of the First
    International Congress of Eugenics which was Held in London UK 1912
    and the Term Eugenics was Invented by a Briton
