Every now & then, an American will ask me - often angrily - why a foreigner like myself pays so much attention to American politics. This classic Space Moose strip sums it up perfectly. 
[ETA: Pinned because I get this a lot during election seasons.]

As for Dame Jane, she said she would be thinking of one of her research subjects "Mike" as she watched the debate.
Mike was a chimp who Dame Jane wrote about in her book My Life With the Chimpanzees, who would kick around kerosene cans in order to intimidate rivals and maintain dominance within his troop.

Donald Trump has dominated headlines throughout the US election campaign, and it may be down to his monkey-like antics, Dame Jane Goodall says.

"Jurien Bay 'vandal' caught after thong blows out while attempting to flee police"
A headline that could only be written, or correctly understood, in Australia.
#straya   #australia  
An alleged Jurien Bay vandal came unstuck after his single-plugger broke while he was attempting to flee from police.

I never heard "thong" except for underwear or leather working until I encountered it from Aussies. It's definitely a flip flop around here.

The UK's analogue to Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbin, has won the leadership of his party for a second time, in the UK equivalent to the US primaries. Isn't it great when these things aren't rigged?

I watched the UK's answer to Bernie win a second party leadership election, on the broadly socialist, welfare-led ticket that bagged him his 2015 victory.

+David Cameron Staples Being in opposition means they can whinge and moan all they like, while having most of their policies enacted, and not have to deal with the fallout when it all inevitably goes pear shaped.
As you say, having someone nominally in charge hailing from the left-ist side of a left wing party scares the hell out of them, even if he isn't quite as left wing as they claim, he's more a Scandinavian-style Social-Democrat than the Trotskyite he is often portrayed as by the media.

Why on earth are Australian taxpayers being forced to fund elitist private schools, while public schools are barely getting by?
"She said this meant the money was not distributed fairly, with wealthy private schools continuing to receive generous government subsidies."

Teachers have put the Andrews government on notice, and are calling on it to provide schools with billions of dollars outlined in the Gonski agreement.

I'm not completely against private schools getting some funding, but it should never be as much as public schools. It should certainly not be more, which is the current state of events.

+Stuart Lamble until very recently, it seemed to be standard practice for the offer price to be around half of the expected first day market price. The underwriters would sell on the market, not in the IPO itself. Zuckerberg's IPO followed your recipe to the letter but was a) weird and b) he was roundly castigated for it, primarily by the underwriter class because they didn't get their pound of flesh.

“You just watch, folks,” Trump told supporters. “Crooked Hillary is going to slip in little facts all night long.”

+Lordy I suggested it's satire because it's posted under "Humor" and "Satire" on the site. :)

TBH, I could see the argument that candidates should be left to fact-check each other (especially if you see the debates as a way to simulate discussions with other world VIPs). I'm not sure I agree with that argument, but I could see why some people would think that.

The Tulsa Massacre: How racist whites literally destroyed a thriving black town, murdering hundreds of black residents in the process.
This occurred less than a century ago, & in many states, attitudes don't seem to have changed much.
