"CAIRO The military council governing Egypt is moving to lay down ground rules for a new constitution that would protect and potentially expand its own authority indefinitely, possibly circumscribing the power of future elected officials.

The military is long accustomed to virtual autonomy. Its budget has never been disclosed to Parliament, and its operations extend into commercial businesses like hotels, consumer electronics, bottled water and car manufacturing."

Japan's women's soccer team won the women's world cup by defeating a stunned US team in PK after a 2-2 draw in overtime.

The Japanese team was thrilled, as will be the nation; it needs the boost.

Wow. I watched most of that, and it's pretty amazing. That said, it's a clear setup...or seems it. The fact is that the judge can pretty much do what he wants wrt the dignity of his court room. He should have fined him or just removed him, but not put him in jail, though.

You're right, Marv. Presumably it's because the police or someone on the force wanted to teach these guys a lesson for some reason.

Of course, the same thing could never happen if law enforcement were privatized...

Seriously, police are corrupt sometimes. But I hope some idiot isn't trying to make the moronic point that this means government is corrupt, and that the alternative would be better in some way.

If they have he authority to raid a house for any reason whatsoever, they could have millions of sources of motivation.

If they don't have the authority to raid a house, then I would assume the police do.

If no one has the authority to raid a house, ever (what if there's a suspected murderer inside?), then it's anarchy, plain and simple.

If you're saying all private gambling should be made legal, then that's something to take up with your elected representative.

This is the way the law works.

Uh oh. Someone just moved the goal posts. We were discussing raiding a private place (or even a public place) because of gambling going on.

I understand that. But, first, you seem to be evading my question. Second, this issue that just because one group of people wrote something on a piece of paper and said "it's against the law" is a somewhat dubious defense.

Should it matter? Is there any proof she hasn't done her job whether she gets migraines or not?

I honestly have never had a migraine headache so I can't relate but I know the amount of the population who does get them isn't small. (Seems like easily 10%+) Should we make everyone take a DNA test and make sure they have the right genes?

Wow. That's devastating, if true.

She would instantly have to bow out of the race because she wouldn't satisfy the eligibility requirement regarding migraines.

Unless she could provide a long-form migraine certificate, of course.

I can't see how anybody would vote for a president that routinely can't function. It's irresponsible of her to run, which says a lot about her.

Here's more on this-

"When she gets them, frankly, she can't function at all. It's not like a little thing with a couple Advils. It's bad," said one adviser.

Mrs Bachmann reportedly blamed the headaches on uncomfortable high-heel shoes, but those who have worked alongside her cited stress, a busy schedule and any sort of setback as possible triggers.
~ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...migraines.html

I've heard that some people even with pills are left incapacitated. It sounds like she's lying to cover up how serious they really are. Isn't that immoral?

Even if I thought she was the most qualified candidate and the only person who could get the country back on its feet, I would still consider her unfit for office if she gets migraines. This is Bachmann, and even without migraines she is unfit, but that is how I feel about migraines. A close family member got them so I am speaking from direct experience. She should drop out now, period.

So let's see. Bachmann is a candidate the left is now concerned about, so they're trying to push this meme about ineligibility due to migraines? Yeah, that'll work.

Agreed. But what's the alternative to the police? What's a better system than that which we currently have that would preclude things like this from happening? Privatization? Yeah, that'll work...

Hmmm....some Presidents and other well-known figures with migraines

Would you vote for a President with back problems so severe, he required massive amount of drugs and injections?

And here are a few from Answers.com:

Quote:
Lyndon Johnson had a heart attack that almost took his life in 1955 but suffered no serious illness while President. Richard Nixon took his path-breaking trip to China while suffering from phlebitis, a potentially life-threatening inflammation of a vein in his leg

...Of the recent Presidents, the one with the worst health was John F. Kennedy. As a child he had numerous illnesses, including scarlet fever, bronchitis, whooping cough, diphtheria, allergies, and asthma. He had a duodenal ulcer, was color-blind in one eye, and later lost his hearing in one ear. He suffered from a bad back throughout his life and almost died from back surgery in 1954. Kennedy wore a back brace, was fitted for an elevated heel on one shoe, and often used crutches. He used a hydraulic lift to enter and exit Air Force One. ....

....There is....an ethical issue involved because Kennedy and his doctors denied that he had Addison's disease or was being treated for it.

...Dwight Eisenhower suffered a heart attack in 1955. The following year he had an operation for ileitis, an intestinal problem, and in 1957 he had a minor stroke.

I'll just stop there. While I don't support Bachmann, she should not be disqualified because she gets fucking migraines.

Several people have been injured in a large explosion which has damaged government buildings in central Oslo, including the office of the Norwegian prime minster.

A Reuters correspondent said he counted at least eight injured people after the unexplained blast.

The explosion blew out most windows on the 17-storey building housing Prime Minister Per Stoltenberg's office, as well as nearby ministries including the oil ministry, which was on fire. Newspaper offices in the area were also reportedly damaged.

A photo posted online showed people looking on as smoke rose drifted through the streets. The caption for the picture said "an entire block exploded".

The tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building but the cause of the blast was unknown with police and fire officials refusing to comment.

More details to follow..."

It makes me wonder about 'some' Americans perhaps holding equally strong views, given there's still very much a lot of hatred towards the GLBT community. Doesn't it make you wonder? If not then then maybe you aren't that concerned with that particular community. Hate doesn't just vanish because the law prevents it being acted out, if anything to those who are adamantly against there rights, it probably enrages them further. Just like there's no doubt there's racists in the US who'd love to string up blacks, there's probably bigots who'd love to string up gays.

I suppose that's true...and yet it isn't happening and there don't really seem to be a lot of signs of it starting. So a story about something happening in another country doesn't make me wonder about the same thing happening in the US. In fact I see the opposite going on. I see that gay/lesbian people are getting more rights (bit by bit) for things like "marriage," etc. and yet no indications of widespread intimidation and oppression of them. If anything they are becoming more public, outspoken and bold. There are regular gay pride events (parades, fests, etc.) These are not the things you'd expect to see in a country where the threat of what you're suggesting was even remotely likely or possible.

The US as practically everyone knows has laws regarding hate crimes relating to gays and the US has been becoming considerably more progressive towards them. Indeed just today I read how the US military is planning on or is already allowing gays to openly serve in the military. To suppose I was trying to imply that what's happening in Ghana could or is likely to happen in the US is just absurd. I never implied that, this is just stupid arguing about it.
