While the Corporatists are busy destroying Democracy so they can plunder at will the Chinese are moving ahead to make sure the 21st Century will be the Chinese Century.

And China is now the largest economy unless you do the accounting so as to make it seem like the US still is.

I wish Snowden would be granted Icelandic citizenship but he'd be a fool to move to that wonderful country; it is much too open to be safe for him. CIA Evildoers would snuff him out in no-time.

Just another day in Texas. A driver accidentally hits and kills a 2-year old. The driver gets out to help the child and is joined by the child's brother. Some unknown Texan shoots the driver and the child's brother to death. Seems ok to me.

Couple of things:

(a) why is a large chunk of the NYPD operating budget supplied by private donations to a private foundation?
(b) does this create any conflicts of interests with respect to the mission of the NYPD?
and (c) it seems unwise to permit city police departments to accept and even rely on donations from foreign governments.

But what the hell do I know?
A 2012 tax document obtained by The Intercept and not intended for public disclosure reveals the mystery donation, which neither the police foundation nor the UAE will give details about. The foundation had excluded the UAE from the list of donors on its website, despite it being one of the largest 2012 contributors.

Frack the idiots who think this is child abuse, seriously, put them in jail ! No wonder US children get to college with no concept of self reliance or control and end up raping, drinking and falsely accusing each other of sexual assault.

I can't find the original (with captions) to link to so you'll have to visit this FB page to see the video. I keep thinking it has to be staged but can't see any way they could have coached the kid into this single cut performance. Very touching food for thought from an unspoiled mind.

The important question is if we are past the tipping point.

No, not the point where there starts to be an effective backlash. Past the point where any backlash is too late and can't overcome the accumulated power of the surveillance state.

As the Guardian points out, the government has gotten so out of control that they aren't even bothering to pass laws. They simply ask a lawyer/whore to invent a reason that it's legal, proceed and assume (1) you won't find out, (2) the courts won't let you sue if you do and (3) nothing will happen, even if you win.

FBI Director James Comey and the people who said this was OK, won't go into a SuperMax prison like Chelseas Manning-- even though he deserves it. The FBI won't have to pay out a multi-bollion dollar judgment.

They're effectively above the law. And if that doesn't frighten you, then you frighten me.
Government agencies will go to great lengths to keep their data collection a secret, strictly to avoid the bad press they know would be coming

When was the last time Iran invaded anyone ?
 
A proposed nuclear deal is the first time in 35 years that U.S.-Iranian relations aren't being driven by fear.

"US Expat Beaten to Death in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica


Source: Flickr Commons

A brutal beating during a robbery in Playa Tamarindo, one of the Gold Coast beaches of Guanacaste, resulted in the death of Barry Lawson, a 72-year old expatriate from the United States. According to a report by Guanacaste news website Primero en Noticias, the robbery took place on April 1st, and Mr. Lawson passed away days later at the CIMA Hospital in Escazú, province of San Jose.

According to the news report filed by Marcos Ureña of Primero en Noticias, Mr. Lawson was surprised by the home invasion and was not cooperative with the attackers, who demanded that he reveal the combination to a safe kept in his residence. Mr. Lawson’s resistance resulted in a beating, during which he sustained a forceful strike to the head with a blunt object. The suspects walked out with $32,000.

Mr. Lawson’s residence in Playa Tamarindo is located in the Playa Langosta sector. He was a businessman and a philanthropist who founded Amigos de la Educación in the year 2000. According to the website of that non-profit organization:

Mr. Lawson resided in the Playa Tamarindo area for many years and was involved in different businesses. He passed away from his wounds on April 7th. This incident has residents of this affluent beach community very concerned for their safety. Playa Tamarindo is considered to be one of the most expensive places to live in Costa Rica, and in recent years it has become an enclave for North American and European expats."

Wonderful meat soup. Wonderful bread with herring. Just simple and really good food.

We went to this restaurant because of the 19 (?) 5-star (!) reviews. The food wasn't excessively expensive but the lobster feast was so smothered in heavy sauces that you really couldn't taste anything but the sauce. This is the first meal in Iceland that has been disappointing.
