Not sure what they did to deserve this but America is giving the UK the GIFT OF COMCAST

https://bgr.com/2015/12/22/comcast-itv-acquisition-reports/

 

This will go down as one of the great gifts in history.  Like the horse that was given to the people of Troy, or the blankets that the British gave to the Native Americans.

AIUI the teacher was working out of a workbook that was part of the approved curriculum, and the students were doing that exercise for every major religion. It only blew up when they got to Islam, of course.

Given what they were actually supposed to be writing, I am not certain it should have been approved.   But then I don't get real offended if people leave "under god" out of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Robbing a condom machine? With a bomb? I have to wonder things like, "how many condoms could he have bought with the money for the bomb materials?" and "doesn't his area have places that give out free condoms?"

I suspect he wanted the coins that were in the machine.  Still, died bombing a condom dispenser open. Is Schoppingen the Florida of Germany?

 

Apparently you've never played 'Florida or Germany?' The way it works is: You read crazy news headlines aloud, with all the place names redacted, and your friends have to guess whether they happened in Florida or Germany.

 

It can be a very challenging game.

Militia group Domestic Terrorist occupies federal wildlife building in Oregon

 

 

Bundy said that while the occupiers, who included his brother Ryan Bundy, were not looking to hurt anyone, they would not rule out violence if police tried to remove them, the Oregonian reported.

 

If these guys were doing a peaceful protest, taking over the same facility, unarmed, then nonviolently resisting when the police came to take them away, I would admire them.  But they didn't.

 

So now the feds have to decide whether to resolve it like Christopher Dorner, or whether to let the turds win.

 

 

The Bundys are the sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. The Bundy family ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada, some 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, was the site of an armed protest against the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in April 2014.

The standoff gained nationwide attention as the agency sought to seize cattle because the elder Bundy refused to pay grazing fees. The federal agents ultimately backed down, citing safety concerns, and gave back hundreds of Bundy cattle which they had rounded up.

 

I did not know that. That makes me angry.

 

Here, might as well hear it from their POV

I know. I wasn't happy with the resolution of the Bundy ranch event (happy that no one got killed. Very not happy that they didn't all get arrested later). This is us reaping the consequences of that mistake. To me it looks like it's going to be very important for the Feds to resolve this decisively in favor of the rule of law. If not, we're on our way to a failed state.
