Look up the speeches of Yuri Bezmenov. 

And you can talk about how Sanders wants to implement a "European" model, but taking a model that works for a homogeneous nation of five million and has extremely low unemployment won't work for a "diverse" nation of 350 million with a twelfth out of work and a third on some sort of government assistance. 

And you're right, +Michael Deis, Bernie is essentially trying to undermine and destroy what the nation was founded on. I think that's why he's so popular.

Joshua Wong sees a thirty year struggle with China.
It’s been a year since Hong Kong teenager Joshua Wong, along with scores of other pro-democracy protesters , stormed a plaza in front of government headquarters here. A dozen muscular police officers pinned down his spindly frame and hauled him off for two days of detention.

NY Times on the Problem of Human Drivers and Autonomous Cars

As someone who marvels at the insanity of Las Vegas drivers, I am looking forward to the autonomous automobile's wide adoption.  It will be much safer once there are enough of these vehicles on the road to start impacting driving habits in humans.

The cars have been involved in a smattering of minor accidents because they observe traffic laws to the letter — and people don’t.

I had to be in L.A. for a week back in the 90's and was fearing the worst.  But I actually felt the drivers (then) were better than my home city.  Then I drove in Chicago.  There's a place which could benefit from self-driving cars.

Worst driving conditions in any City in the world are in Calgary, Alberta and I"m white knuckle when on the Deerfoot Trail.  Until the mix of vehicles (between cars with people and cars without drivers) fades and one remains then we will see this problem continue.

I don't expect driverless cars in my lifetime until they can handle the packed ice streets of Canada.

Story idea: http://goo.gl/E9962q Propagandizing 6 year olds against their tech industry parents. Disturbing. Perhaps they need alternative day care centers which will educate children in the right of individuals to pursue "life, liberty, and happiness"? Where would San Francisco be without the #tech industry?
Tech workers are vilified while longtime homeowners who fight high-density growth continue to profit from rising rents and property values.

Does Silicon Valley corporate social responsibility extend to the Syrian refugee crisis?

We met Khaldoon Sinjab in a small apartment in Beirut. He escaped Syria's war two years ago.

He's quadriplegic - and makes a living using the only muscles that still function - his mouth and tongue.

He taught himself English and developed a system where from his hospital bed he can use his mouth and tongue on a mouse pad to move the cursor on a computer screen so that he can do his job.

He works 15 hours a day as a computer programmer to provide for his family, his wife Yosra and daughter Judy.

But Lebanon has rolling power cuts and when the electricity goes out, so too do the machines keeping Khaldoon alive.

While thousands are in Europe, millions of people who fled the war-torn country remain living in camps in neighbouring countries.

Oliver Sacks Passes

A science based storyteller, his writing is lucid and approachable.  A great boon to those who didn't know they were interested in science and neurology until they read his writings.
Sacks told stories with a level of intellectual and emotional depth that most of us can never hope to muster
