Didn't see this one coming.

Overall support for marijuana legalisation is at 55% yes and 33% no but the real surprising statistic is that, for the first time, Republicans have come out in support of legalisation 45% to 42%.

Sick of acts being done by Muslims for Jihad? Crazy Muslim is getting stale and maybe it's getting to a point it is getting boring.

This is not the first time that the West seems to have shrugged off massacres in predominantly Muslim countries. But the relative indifference after so many deaths caused by the very groups that have plagued the West is more than a matter of hurt feelings.

One of the primary goals of the Islamic State and other radical Islamist groups is to drive a wedge between Sunni Muslims and the wider world, to fuel alienation as a recruiting tool. And when that world appears to show less empathy for the victims of attacks in Muslim nations, who have borne the brunt of the Islamic State’s massacres and predatory rule, it seems to prove their point.

“Why isn’t #PrayForIraq trending?” Razan Hasan of Baghdad posted on Twitter. “Oh yeah no one cares about us.”
In recent days, jihadists have killed more than 300 people in Turkey, Bangladesh, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and many Westerners have responded with relative indifference.

I actually bagged out the bible. I am an atheist and you've said nothing of substance.
But clearly I've confused you with many words.
All scripture is nonsense in the light of recent and developing science and the sooner more Muslims understand that in the way great men like Tarek Fatah understand it, a Muslim who very much disagrees with the way Islam is taught and indeed used to abuse both it's followers and non believers alike, the sooner the healing can begin.
I don't doubt Islam could be great, but Christians and Islamist alike need to stop making apologies for these prophets and their gods.
I do apologize for my outburst, and language and certainly don't want to be that angry atheist.

Yes, let us use Brexit as an opportunity to scrap those pesky labour market regulations, emissions trading regulations, and indeed regulations of all sorts. Let Britain join in free trade deals like the TPP. Let Brexit usher in a new, golden age of deregulation!
 
"We should scrap EU-mandated labour market regulations and social protections as fast as possible. There is no reason why we should accept European limits on how many hours people do in the office - so long as we have a minimum wage in place, which we do, then it is up to every individual how long a shift he or she wants to put in. Issues such as parental leave can be freely agreed between companies and staff. Employers who want to hire lots of young women, the best educated, most skilled part of the workforce, will be generous; others less so. But business can decide for itself."

Looks like the citizens of the UK have lots to look forward to in their bright, new, post-Brexit future!

Liberated from a private share.

I find this a most uplifting tale. Unlike the protagonist of a certain fictional series, this Turkish prosecutor did not let death end his watch. He found the time and the dedication to continue in his prosecuting duties and to plot a coup despite the mild inconvenience of having been deceased for 2 months. How he found the activation energy to do this I will never know. But I for one am inspired to try harder in my work from this example.

There's a lot of talk about Boris Johnson being made Foreign Secretary and how he's going to have to face up to the consequences of what he's done.

But, among his many duties, he will also be in charge of the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI6. Which means, in effect, he's in charge of Britain's top spies.

I'll let that sink in.......
New Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has demanded that MI6 arrange a meeting for him with their top agent, James Bond, as soon as possible.

Britain is set to get a new Prime Minister in a day or so in Theresa May who made her career by consistently voting for war in Iraq, while opposing human rights legislation at home, and voting against regulations aimed at preventing climate change.
Theresa May is about to become Prime Minister after a career of opposing legislation that guarantees equality and human rights. The MP and home secretary has repeatedly indicated that she would look to repeal laws that guarantee human rights in Britain. She also has a record of voting against equality legislation and measures that prevent climate change.

No reasonable prosecutor would pursue a case, according to the article. But Hillary was, of course, being "extremely careless". Tsk tsk.
The FBI announces it will not charge Hillary Clinton over her use of private email but said she was 'careless' in handling classified information.

The US of A is doomed with these two as ''leaders'' Trump and Hillary. These elections are actually the IQ-test of '-America, which giving a score of below-average.


I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary bribed the FBI for to not to prosecute her.

What interests me about these 1993 commercials from AT&T is that some of the things they advertise as "possible in the future" look quite outdated from the perspective of 2016. Who needs phone booths nowadays?

Story
Introduction
I like music of all sorts, but particularly classical music and jazz, and I can be found on the Internet a lot talking about the various things that do interest me - politics (only sometimes!), economics (I'm still learning), science, philosophy - but ultimately enjoying most trading anecdotal stories and "folksy" wisdom just to get a feel of how things are around the world and across the generations. Result of this so far: we are certainly not as different from one another as we think we are!
