Ahh, even the Wall Street Journal is discussing the pope's past and his possible transgressions:

 

- Did he oppose the juntas?

- Was he connected to the arrest and torture of two priests?

Portrman now supports gay marriage.

 

Only after his son comes out.  Though that was two years ago.

 

GOP reaction?

Just like it will be with Global Warming, not messing things up in the first place is a heck of a lot easier than cleaning up afterwards.

 

How many people have to die?

 

Does the GOP care about the people who die - heck, do they care about people?- , or just saying Obama didn't do anything so that makes it even?

Steubenville rape case

 

 

Fox and CNN release the victim's name.  She has been raped again by the media and their viewers who are hungry for slobber.

 

CNN focuses on how difficult this is for the PERPETRATORS.  No comment needed.

 

CBS has a guest (female) who talked about how we need to be careful with our digital footprints.  I guess the rape was OK, but the guys were foolish to post a record of it, eh?

 

GOP agents try to completely control women's bodies.

On a slightly different subject, this is an interesting development in light of discussions a while back about methods of mass murder:

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-21839198

 

The implication is that this subject intended to use homemade explosives as at least part of his strategy, and while it has not been released whether or not they were viable devices, it is an interesting possible counter-example to my previous observation that the use of explosives in such a way is very difficult, and thus very rare.

post #2252 of 2696

How is an isolated incident a counterexample to a claim of rarity?

Fair point - if you take my hypothesis to be just that it was rare then this does not strictly meet the definition of a counter-example. However, I believe that I went further and said that without access to restricted items and some specialized knowledge it would be virtually impossible. I suspect that these will either turn out not to be detonable explosives (they could still do substantial damage without detonating, of course), or that they will simply not be viable devices. We'll see, maybe.

The sequester is causing 149 control towers to stop work, leaving pilots to handle things themselves (which they hopefully are capable of doing) and possibly increasing the risk of an accident.

 

In this country of hungry wolves without hearts lawyers, I can already foresee a court  case suing the US government fr many millions more than it would have cost to keep the towers open.  If there is one accident resulting in death, they will sue for involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and probably lots of other reasons.

Green lasers used in soccer match between Japan and Jordan.  The match was held in Jordan.

 

On several occasions, the laser(s) were aimed at Japanese players' faces.

 

Pathetic.

 

This is not the only incident: Messi has had it happen, and Malaysia and Indonesia have both had it happen.

 

Will FIFA do anything?  I doubt it, as these fans are the ones paying FIFA's high salaries.

US B-2s took part in exercises over South Korea recently.  The exercises are held every year; this was the first time for B-2s to be involved.

Yep.  No wonder the Republicans want to cut spending for everything but the Pentagon; their wars are a tad expensive.  [3 to 4 times the cost of the Republican-loathed as money wasting Obamacare]

What, GW, did these wars achieve?

 

Over 4000 dead... more than on 9/11.  Yep, a result of US government action.

An exhausted military with lots of damaged/destroyed equipment.  (with a Chinese dragon starting to rear its head and a nutcase in North Korea who thinks nukes are arcade games).

A severely damaged image abroad.

 

The list goes on.

 

Oh, and please do not forget the innocent women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan who died by the thousands.

I have no idea what North Korea is up to.

 

They are now threatening to attack US bases in Japan, and listed three areas by name.

 

- - - - -

 

I'm not sure if this is all for local consumption and that in a week or two of grand-staging Kim will declare that he personally has decided to give the US and Korea another chance out of the immense generosity of his immense  heart, thus hoping to have his people collapse in awe at what a great guy he is.

 

 

In the meantime, plenty of people are a little worried that a mistake made on the front lines will lead to an actual confrontation.

Tempting theory, but if you mean the entire ploy - get defeated and then showered with cash - I suspect not. The most popular explanation seems to be that they want to be respected, rather than penalized with isolation and sanctions, and that they have simply overestimated the clout that comes with developing nuclear weapons.

Washington increased military benefits in late 2001 as the country went to war, seeking to quickly bolster its talent pool and expand its ranks. Those decisions and the protracted nation-building efforts launched in both countries will generate expenses for years to come, Linda Bilmes, a public policy professor, wrote in the study released Thursday.

 

You aren't comparing apple with apples. This study estimates the lifetime costs of the war and for the benefits promised to the people who served in them.

 

So the 18 year old coming home from Afghanistan this year, when he wants a hip replacement when he is 75 years old to ease his pain, this study is counting that procedure as a cost of the war.

 

When you do the same thing for government entitlements not even the costs but the funding gap alone is over $200 TRILLION dollars.

 

Would it be nice to take some actions and deal with those $6 trillion in lifetime costs for those wars? Sure. Can we be honest and note that George Bush stopped being president in 2008 and folks like yourself won't point a finger where it belongs, at Democrats and Obama in 2013. Absolutely. Can we realize that anyone who refuses to address the $200+ trillion dollar gap because they want to point at someone and talk about a $6 trillion dollar cost isn't interested in real solutions? We can and do.

This would be a great segue into the story about how Sarah Palin, who repeatedly shouts that we must get rid of the consultants, and control spending, spent more than she took in, and what she did spend went 90% to consultants.
