Wow. So, now ISIS joins the fight against Junk Food... 0_0 #JunkFoodJihad

"The American people will hate chips such as Doritos, because it will remind them of the scary footage, and at that time, the sales of these chips will decline,” he says.

His hopes for this outcome are clearly pretty high: The post is titled “A Great Suggestion to Eliminate the American Economy.”
A member of a pro-Islamic State forum has chipped in a rather out-of-the-box idea for jihad: turn Americans consumers off of salty snacks by associating…

We're more than just Mafiosi and Latin Lovers: An Italian responds to Giriraj's attack on Sonia Gandhi

#Stereotypes #Italy #India :)
Allowing a foreign-born woman to become such a powerful leader is actually a sign of India's greatness.

The Taliban will cheer the loudest for Afghanistan at the Cricket World Cup

Cricket sat easily with Afghanistan’s cultural heritage. The sport bears significant resemblance to the old Afghan game of top danda. Both games involve a wooden bat hitting a spherical object. Cricket’s dress code also proved amenable to the Taliban. Unlike football, where the kit marked out those who wore it out as heathens in the Taliban’s eyes, cricket kits accommodated religious and cultural requirements. “Cricket became one of the favourite games of the Taliban because of the clothing,” Noor reflected. “They were not allowing sports with half trousers [shorts]. In Islam, your knees should be hidden under your trousers and that’s it. Your knees should be hidden because that will allow you to offer prayers.” In contrast to other sports, there is no direct physical contact between players in cricket.
The sport is watched everywhere in Afghanistan, but it is in Taliban-dominated areas that it is most popular.

I'm glad that AAP won in Delhi so decisively.
The BJP needs to be jolted into performing what it promised.
The Congress party totally deserved its ZERO.

Most People (including me) voted for Narendra Modi because of his development vision for India and his personality, not the RSS/VHP Hindutva ideology and ridiculous campaigns by extremist elements.

A reminder to all the political parties including the winning AAP - the people of India will punish arrogance and non- fulfillment of promises. Do not take them for granted.

People will not continue to vote for BJP, just because of Modi. So, listen to them and fulfil your promises. Ostracize and punish the religious and caste leaders, irrespective of party affiliation, religion and caste, who cause unrest and incite violence, as the Constitution prescribes.

Hopefully, the AAP too will focus on governance instead of drama in Delhi, and cooperate with the BJP.

JavaScript For Cats

So easy your human companion could do it too!

JavaScript is a programming language or, in other words, a means by which a computer is instructed to do things. Just the same as one controls humans with hisses and meows, one controls computers with statements written in a programming language. All web browsers understand JavaScript and you can take advantage of that to make web pages do crazy things!

The uncomfortable truth is that a sizeable portion of Kiev’s current government — and the protesters who brought it to power — are, indeed, fascists.

If Western governments hope to steer Ukraine clear from the most unsavory characters in Moscow and Kiev, they will need to wage a two-pronged diplomatic offensive: against Putin’s propaganda and, at the same time, against Ukraine’s resurgent far-right.
It's time for a frank conversation about some of the unsavory characters in Kiev.

I'm a Russian Occupant

Russians make excellent #propaganda videos. :)
This creative propaganda video talks about how regions like Siberia, Central Asia etc prospered under Russians, and about the attacks faced historically by Russians from the Polish, Germans, French etc.

“If you find my stories dirty, the society you are living in is dirty. With my stories, I only expose the truth.”

“It’s hard to tell the truth in a world that rewards you for lying, but without the truth there is nothing. Everybody cannot handle the truth, this is true, but that is their challenge, not yours.”
‘How could I have such vile, such vulgar thoughts? Was I trying to be sensationalistic in order to become famous and rich? Was I trying to impress the West?’

Anti-Corruption Comedy Skits - with CPC's blessings #China

The irony — that political satire had to be commissioned by the party – has not been lost on the social media chattering class. One advertising copywriter wrote on microblogging platform Weibo, “Pushing the envelope? That’s arranged by the party.” One Internet user commented, “They are following orders from party officials when they make fun of party officials.” Another agreed: “When the party needs these performers to satirize they must do it, but when it doesn’t need them they must shut up.”
Corruption is finally funny -- at least, according to the Chinese Communist Party. That's because comedic performances in the upcoming Feb. 18 performance of China's annual…
