Fantastic conversation between Dave Rubin and Milo regarding the attacks in Brussels and the regressive left's idiotic inability to identify a problem by name.  Islam, as it stands today, is simply incompatible with western values.

It's sad that no where in this article is there a single mention of Islam.  Until the west can call out this problem by name, which is to say that Islam and western/secular values don't mix, things will only continue to get worse.

At least two dozen people are dead and more than 150 wounded, after explosions struck Brussels during the Tuesday morning rush hour, Belgian media report. Two blasts hit the international airport; another struck a metro station. Belgium has issued a Level 4 alert, denoting "serious and imminent attack."
"What we feared has happened, we were hit by blind attacks," Prime Minister Charles Michel said at a midday news conference Tuesday. He added that there were many dead and many injured.
Citing an an unofficial source for the emergency services, Belgian broadcaster RTBF says that 14 people died in the attack at the Zaventem airport, and that 20 people died at the Maelbeek metro station.
French President Francois Hollande says, "terrorists struck Brussels, but it was Europe that was targeted — and all the world that is concerned."
The number of dead and wounded could rise, as Belgian emergency agencies are focused on responding to those in need. Information is still emerging about this attack, and some reports may later prove inaccurate. Here's what we know so far:
Brussels' Zaventem Airport
A suicide attacker struck around 8 a.m. local time, according to a federal prosecutor. The explosions hit near the departure gates, collapsing ceiling panels and shattering glass windows. The blasts sent smoke billowing from the airport and set off a panic as people ran from the airport with whatever they could carry.
A video from nearby in the terminal that's been aired on Belgian broadcaster VRT shows travelers cowering as dust and smoke fill the air and sirens blare. We'll warn you: the video contains a profanity and may be stressful to watch.

The facility has now been evacuated and closed, with emergency crews looking after the wounded and security personnel gathering any evidence that might provide details about those responsible.
The attack began after a burst of gunfire and yelling in Arabic, according to Belgian media outlets.
Maelbeek Station
Around 9:11 a.m. local time, an explosion struck a metro train in or near the Maelbeek station, causing chaos close to the European Union headquarters in the city's center.

The station is about 7 miles from the airport. Images of the aftermath of that attack show people running for safety along the tracks through a darkened and smoke-filled tunnel, after trains were halted.
To clarify information that went out in an NPR news alert earlier this morning: There have been at least three explosions — two at the airport and one at a train station. An early report suggested there were three explosions on the subway.
Accounts From The Scene
Gabriele Steinhauser, a reporter with The Wall Street Journal, who's in Brussels, relayed witness accounts to NPR's Morning Edition:
"Parts of the ceiling fell down. There was a lot of water from pipes breaking. People who were there during the explosions said there were scenes of chaos. It took about 10 minutes for security personnel to arrive. There were mothers with children and old people who didn't know what to do.
"People felt like the authorities were badly prepared, and when they were led out of the airport they were led right through the place where the explosions happened. People say there was a lot of blood."
The Response
Explosives teams from the Belgian Army detonated a suspicious package at the Zaventem airport around 9 a.m. ET — and the federal Zuidertoren (South Tower) building in Brussels was evacuated after suspicious items were found in an underground parking lot, according to the national crisis center and the national news service.
Brussels was placed under lockdown, with all its tunnels closed to traffic and children ordered to stay in school throughout the day. The public transit system was shut down. But some of those tunnels are now open again, and officials said that at 4 p.m., local time, trains will resume running.
The city's main airport is closed for the day, and flights are being rerouted to nearby cities. Eurostar train service between London and Brussels was also suspended.
Security officials in France and Germany are increasing their vigilance in the wake of the attacks.
Belgium's Crisis Center is urging residents not to use the phones, saying the system is saturated. Instead, they're asking people to rely on WiFi connections, text messages and social media to communicate.
Beyond Belgium
The attack comes four days after Belgian and French police arrested Salah Abdeslam, a central suspect in the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris. As of yesterday, authorities were still looking for his accomplices in that attack — including one man, Laachroui Najim, whose true identity was only recently revealed.
In Cuba, President Obama prefaced his public remarks with a mention of the attacks in Belgium, offering the support of the U.S. and saying, "This is yet another reminder that the world must unite... in fighting against the scourge of terrorism."
The U.S. Embassy in Brussels urged American citizens to shelter in place this morning. European Union institutions are at an Orange alert level, with normal business suspended and restricted access.
Tonight, both the Eiffel Tower and the Brandenburg Gate will be lit in the black, yellow, and red colors of Belgium's flag. And in London, the Belgian flag was raised alongside the Union Jack atop Downing Street this afternoon. Both are flying at half-mast.
This is a developing story. Some things that get reported by the media will later turn out to be wrong. We will focus on reports from police officials and other authorities, credible news outlets and reporters who are at the scene. We will update as the situation develops.

K.I.S.S.= Keep it simple, stupid. Meaning, no matter who said it first, it appears to have been proven and unfortunately still continues to be proven that the one "terrorists and their beliefs" do not "mix" with anything. Hell, I bet, and this is only speculation, they can probably barely "mix", or get along with them selves or each other. No need to attempt giving me a lesson in what ever political / religious or personal thoughts, beliefs or what ever.
Bottom line is, terrorism of any kind is just wrong.
From the bully at school and those that abuse others to the leaders of nations or religions who think only their way of thinking is the right way. Things will never change. Imagine the power of humanity, should it ever gain the ability to truly communicate, solve differences without killing, being able to bend but not allow ones self to be broken. To reach this level of diversity...........

Trump: "We're losing a lot of people because of the internet," 

Yep...if "facts" or "truth" aren't your thing...the internet can be a bit of a pain.

Trump: "We have to see Bill Gates..."

Why?  Planning on donating to his foundation?

Trump: "...and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening." (referring to the internet)

You mean like most children these days?

Trump: "We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways."

Sure thing, maybe we can outsource that work to China?

Trump: "Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people."

These foolish people and their freedom of speech shakes fist like angry old man

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump just said the US should consider "closing up" the internet to curb radical extremism. Trump, a man that routinely claims everyone in charge of the US...

Credit where it's due and better late than never, but would've liked to see this sort of language from president Obama before we/he allowed someone like Trump to dictate the narrative.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2016/04/obama-to-stop-terrorism-islam-must-reconcile-itself-to-modernity/
In a sweeping interview President Barack Obama worries about the hijab, questions the U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia, and argues that Islam must undergo a reformation if there is to be an end to Islamist terrorism.

After an attempted conversation with a Regressive today, and given that this video is from over a year ago I can only assume   +Pat Condell is prophetic.

Ah...I see my mistake now....I usually run the 0-0-0-0-10 formula.

http://lifehacker.com/get-better-sleep-and-start-mornings-strong-with-the-10-1762499118
A productive day starts with a great morning, and you can’t have a great morning if you didn’t get any rest the night before. This simple five-part formula will help you get to bed earlier, sleep better, and wake up feeling rested.

The only thing that surprises me about this map, are the parts of Texas WITHOUT gun violence.

http://projects.oregonlive.com/ucc-shooting/gun-deaths
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calculated the average annual number of gun deaths per 100,000 residents in U.S. counties. The resulting map is striking.

Is that because they all own a gun by chance. Knowing someone most likely has a gun and will use it, I think is a pretty good deterrant. As apposed to knowing they don't have one and they can have free reign with no fear of being hurt or killed. Not sure I said it all very well but that's pretty simple common sense and seems logical. Please forgive my lack of vocabulary. Thank you.

Been a member for around 10 years now. For most of that time it was fine, standard commercial gym (though sad that the local LA Fitness has more squat racks...but whatever). Sadly, in the past 6 to 12 months things have really gone down hill. WAY too many members. If you have lots of time to wait for machines and equipment, or are able to go between 8pm and 4am, you'll probably be fine, but otherwise I wouldn't bother.

This place deserves all the accolades stated in the other reviews. Fast, professional and inexpensive. If I had to nit-pick, parking COULD be an issue since the whole area doesn't have much. That said, there is a small 20min spot right in front of the building and I was able to park right there. Without hesitation I would use them again and will suggest them to friends.

Before I moved here all of these super low reviews really concerned me. I moved here anyway...and now that I have, I'm not sure exactly why this place is rated so low? First off, I do NOT work for Coral bay...I'm just a resident and have been here for almost 2 years. I'm also not sure if there are older parts of the complex? Is this place perfect? no...but it's not any worse than an average apartment. PROS: - The property is well maintained - I personally have never waited more than one day for a work order to be completed - lots of grassy areas for walking your dog - lots of laundry rooms - decent sized pool (though it DOES get busy over the summer, but it's public!) - parking, while not GREAT...is better here than other places I've lived in San Diego. If you're moving from someplace that has lots of space and plenty of parking...welcome to parking in San Diego :) - Rent isn't "cheap" but not crazy expensive for living 1 mile up the hill to mission bay - the office staff has always been friendly and helpful CONS: - Let's talk about rent again. This is the first place I've rented in San Diego that I'm getting charged for Trash, Water and Sewer. It's not super high, but bumps the rent bill up and many other places these services are included. - I also think if you don't have a dog, you can find other places that are just as nice, or nicer...for less. - the walls are on the thinner side, again...I've seen worse...I've seen better. It's not terrible, but with a noisy neighbor I can understand that complaint. Then again...even nice quiet walls with the "wrong" kind of neighbor...can be a pain. Welcome to the joys of apartment living. - I REALLY don't like how far away everything is. This might be nice if you're married or have a family...but I'd like to be a little closer to some sort of nightlife. - off leash dogs - this isn't so much an issue with the complex itself, but rather people (residents) that only care about them self. (for some reason it always seems to follow, the smaller the dog...the more inconsiderate the owner. mostly.) - poop in the grass. Coral Bay makes available plenty of dog poop receptacles as well as free "poop bags" so I can't really fault Coral Bay for this...many of the residents just don't care. As you see...many of the items on my "Cons" list have less to do with the complex and more to do with uncaring neighbors/residents. Not a pro or con, just something to note. When you go to re-sign your lease, Coral bay allows you to go month to month. I'm mixed on this. On the plus side, I think it's great they even let you DO month to month...many places require longer leases. However, if you WANT to go month to month...it's VERY expensive (if I remember right, I was quoted over $1500/mo) So yeah...if you want to keep your rent reasonable...you need to sign a longer lease, which is kind of a bummer. I hope this was helpful and helps to balance out some of these all negative reviews. I'm not sure where these other reviewers were from, or where they lived prior...but it seems like maybe their expectations were a little too high? While San Diego isn't the worst rental market in the country....it's not cheap to live here...and you pay more for just an "average place." Welcome to living and renting in SD :)
