These are actual screenshots of six major news networks, taken by me about five minutes ago.

I've been trying to stand back from this election because I think it's a puppet show and I've never really been fond of puppets, but this is crossing a line.

One of the largest cities in Irag, which has been under ISIS control for quite a while now, is in the process of being liberation. Over a million civilians are currently inside the city as the Iraqi army, with the help of Kurdish forces and some American and British "security advisors" are trying to take the city back by force.

What am I seeing on US and UK media? Trump/Hillary (whichever is the least preferred candidate by the target audience) did this bad thing! This is absolutely absurd and journalists should be held accountable for reporting on garbage as opposed to actual news.

Halsey - Gasoline

Are you insane like me?
Been in pain like me?
Bought a hundred dollar bottle of champagne like me?
Just to pour that motherfucker down the drain like me?
Would you use your water bill to dry the stain like me?


Are you high enough without the Mary Jane like me?
Do you tear yourself apart to entertain like me?
Do the people whisper 'bout you on the train like me?
Saying that you shouldn't waste your pretty face like me?


And all the people say
You can't wake up, this is not a dream
You're part of a machine, you are not a human being
With your face all made up, living on a screen
Low on self esteem, so you run on gasoline


I think there's a flaw in my code
These voices won't leave me alone
Well my heart is gold and my hands are cold


Are you deranged like me?
Are you strange like me?
Lighting matches just to swallow up the flame like me?
Do you call yourself a fucking hurricane like me?
Pointing fingers cause you'll never take the blame like me?


And all the people say
You can't wake up, this is not a dream
You're part of a machine, you are not a human being
With your face all made up, living on a screen
Low on self esteem, so you run on gasoline


I think there's a flaw in my code
These voices won't leave me alone
Well my heart is gold and my hands are cold

There is not enough money to fund law enforcement in Oregon, so police are only responding to emergencies from 9am to 6pm on weekdays.

Imagine dialing 911 and the voice on the other hand says: Sorry. Due to budget cuts, no one can help you. Well, that's the reality for tens of thousands of people in rural Oregon. Many counties in the state have cut public safety budgets due to the loss of vital timber payments. That's money from the federal government paid to counties with large national forests - in other words, land that can't be taxed.

"There isn't a day go by that we don't have another victim."

Tune in for an important PSA from Mashable: If and when you do obtain a pair of Google Glass, don't let it turn you into a Glasshole! http://on.mash.to/12xp1n3

Whole bunch of changes with G+... I think I like it.
