  1. Lobbyists 4 Good

    It is a constant refrain of many politicians that they are for the people, not the special interests and lobbyists in Washington. Truth is everybody has special interests they favor, just don't call it that. Seems somebody figured out on how to capitalized on that. Lobbyists 4 Good...

  2. Helsinki Summit

    Too important not to have a thread of its own. Now my understanding is that not only are 12 Russians indicted but US intelligence services are currently warning that the Russians intend to interfere in the mid terms. If Trump goes in and complains seriously about these matters and the...

  3. Example of a suspicious BBC Have Your Say posting

    1393. Posted by PeaceIn2017 on 22 minutes ago As Brexit was won, this needs to be implemented with a plan and strategy that would greatly benefit the UK. We need leadership that can achieve this. Is PM May able to do this? The evidence suggests not by the rotten deal she proposed for...

  4. The fall of Aleppo, the summit of Russia and Japan

    Russia for sure has helped Trump to win the election by playing a big role in email hacking event. Russia won't do it for free. There must be a secret deal between the intelligence of two countries. We outsiders can only see it from some facts. The secret deal: Hacked email were handed to...

  5. How lies become truth in online

    I wonder how many if any stories I bought into? Being a Facebook story would be my first alarm bell. Really I believe I know people who would pass such stuff on. ‘Nothing on this page is real’

  6. Médecins Sans Frontières forced to stop its rescue operation off the Libyan coast

    https://www.msf.org/aquarius-forced-end-operations-europe-condemns-people-drown I'm not sure this is a bad thing at all, because I don't think the directors of the Aquarius have been entirely honest when describing how they operated. Far from rescuing would-be migrants they've been operating a...

  7. Nancy Pelosi Pushes Proposal Detrimental to Progressive Ideas

    In an attempt to make it sound like the idea is a progressive one by freezing taxes paid by low earners, it is actually a very bad idea that handcuffs progressive initiative. Some might say that It would appear Nancy Pelosi is doing her job at pleasing her corporate contributors by bssically...

  10. US Food Safety regulations...

    Although I'm avoiding Brexit in particular and the news in general at the moment it's actually quite difficult to do and I saw an article which claimed that under US Food Safety regs there are permitted amounts of maggots, rat hair, faeces and mould that are allowed. As far as I am aware, EU regs...

  11. Free labor

    It started way back in the 70's with self-serve gasoline pumps. A few days ago went to pick up my wife at the airport. I left way early and on the way stopped at a Walmart to pick up some fried chicken pieces to take and eat at the airport. I had to scan bag and enter my money into a...

    This Civil Partnership thing. For those not watching, the UK has legalized different-sex civil partnerships. One male and one female, both having reached the age of consent, may now enter into a civil partnership. What no news site has yet said is whether they can do this if either partner is...

  15. Chaotic start - to supreme court hearing

    OK, it is obvious that the Democratic Party is suffering some kind of seizure over the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice. The fear is this particular nominee has shown a tendency to respect the text of the Constitution. Bad news for those who are used to using the courts to legislate when they...

  17. May in Europe: Nobody move or the ****** gets it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_JOGmXpe5I That's pretty much what the Brexit threat to leave the EU without a deal really is, especially after the EU/Japanese deal and the deal Germany has made with China. ...I doubt the EU will be fooled. edit: It's also a moment of comic genius. :)

    This is not a joke, this is real, as far as I'm aware: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-44732754 Now, it still has to be passed to fly by the Met Police and the local flying control, neither of which are noted for their sense of humour so there's a good chance that it won't get...

  19. Riots in N Ireland

It is undoubtedly being driven by extremists and even someone like Gerry Adams has been targeted (he now...

    According to the Governor of the Bank of England as a result of the brexit vote every household in the UK is NOW £900 worse off as a result of the brexit vote than we would have been had we not been so ****ing stupid. I'd like to thank and congratulate every brexiter on their contribution to our...
