>Missing the point this hard

The point isn't what he asked the President of Ukraine to do. It's that aid has never been considered a Bribe despite being used as a negotiation tool in the past, which means Trump isn't guilty.
>you think the president of the us has to explain himself to her?
Well I would assume so, considering she was the fucking Senior Director and DEPUTY PRESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT for European and Russian affairs. Doing that and listening to her response and advice was part of the job.
>he asked whats the difference. you posted a clip of a woman stating her opinion.
That was part of an official testimony. And it's still more relevant then a WWE clip.
>you have to provide an argum,ent for YOUR pov
He did, in the form of that clip and his posts.
>libs cant hang in a debate
Honestly man I get the feeling it's more because a lot of them realize that they're wasting their time. It would be like trying to break through a brick wall with a stick. But hey, you got the last word, so automatically you're the winner. Congrats.

>A group of McDonald's cooks and cashiers is suing the fast-food chain over the company's handling of what the lawsuit presents as a "nationwide pattern" of customers attacking and harassing workers.

>The lawsuit, filed Thursday by 17 workers from the Chicago area, alleges that McDonald's and its franchisees have failed to protect workers by extending work hours late into the night, designing stores in ways that left workers more vulnerable, and providing inadequate security training and support.

>"They and their coworkers face a daily risk of violence while at work," the lawsuit says, accusing McDonald's and its Chicago-area franchisees of being "negligent in failing to protect their workers from this risk."

>In a statement, McDonald's said it "takes seriously its responsibility to provide and foster a safe working environment for our employees, and along with our franchisees, continue to make investments in training programs that uphold safe environments for customers and crew members. In addition to training, McDonald's maintains stringent policies against violence in our restaurants."

>The fast-food chain in August announced a new anti-harassment and safe-workplace training program for U.S. workers following a wave of allegations of sexual harassment of female workers. McDonald's last week said it rolled out the program to all corporate-owned restaurants and was "encouraged" by the progress getting franchisees to implement it.

Tough shit
>I'm all for worker's rights. But I'm not sure how you can realistically enforce this.
Make it illegal for an employer to dismiss, demote, transfer or otherwise penalize employee's who use legitimate self defense against violent "customers" and make it illegal for employers to stop employee's from carrying concealed extendable batons, pepper spray, tazers and/or, provided they have a CCW permit, a concealed handgun if they want to have such things while at work.
If you're going to do that then you also have to make it so the company can't be held liable if the employee fucks up and shoots an innocent person. The whole reason companies ban employees from arming themselves is because they're the ones who get sued when something goes wrong.
just expand Good Samaritan laws to authorize the extermination of thugs to protect people
What you really want is private prosecution, whereby individuals (and corporations by extension) can pursue criminal cases where the DA would otherwise selectively prosecute or seek bargain a plea.

The 1.4 billion people in China generally think that the students in Hong Kong are a bunch of prats.

It's largely assisted by Chinese state media but that's where they are.
Understood....keep fighting for freedom, anything that differs from you goal is not freedom
This is the key point. The people of Hong Kong look down on the mainlanders as idiotic savages. So why are Chinese citizens supposed to feel bad for a bunch of arrogant fuckwits getting smacked down by the Chinese government?

Talk shit, get hit. Blame Britain for being a bunch of pussies and dismantling their own empire, China wouldn't try doing shit to Hong Kong if it was still a British colony.
It's 07:14 in Hong Kong right now. Any crackdowns last night?
This tbqh I asked some mainland Chinese what they thought of all this they just said fuck em

So doesnt look like the prc people are gonna help them or join in the revolt

>Salvation Army discriminates against gays

>Chik-fil-a stops donating to the Salvation Army
Seems pretty straightforward.
>>Salvation Army discriminates against gays
No they don't. I've seen them help people myself. They don't go around asking if you're gay or not. They just feed the poor and homeless
>>Chik-Fil-A says they’re going to stop donating to charities that discriminate against gays
>>Chik-fil-a stops donating to the Salvation Army

The UK was calling Chikfila homophobic because their founder is against gay marriage and then they lied about SA saying that they're homophobic and that Chikfila donates to them so Chikfila cancelled donations to SA to appease the homosexuals.

>Seems pretty straightforward.

Yeah Hitler was straightforward too
Your check is the mail, boomer.
How do you honestly look in the mirror knowing that you attack a charity that has fed HOMELESS PEOPLE FOR OVER A CENTURY. I am 35 years old. I grew up seeing the things they did for people.

“Every single thing that they do,” Davi began. “The Democrats and the cabal of the GOP globalists, they’ve let down the American people for gerrymandering the population.”

Davi referenced the Immigration and Naturalization Act, passed by former President Lyndon B. Johnson and “argued by Teddy Kennedy,” saying that they had promised the law would not encourage further illegal immigration.

“This is what’s happening, it’s pure and simple,” Davi continued. “What they want to do is change the shape and the ideology of this nation by letting people in that have not been educated in the system. Trish, I was just in New York, I spoke to immigrant cab drivers from Bangladesh to the Dominican Republic, guys that are working their butts off that have been here legally, and they’re angry.”

>Split the vote
This is a self-made problem.
The fact of the matter is no one is "Splitting the vote", people are voting how they want and the idea that they shouldn't be allowed or those votes should be taken away and given to the "Big guys" just because some democrats are ass-devastated that the Green Party sometimes upstages them in some counties is not just undemocratic as fuck but also proof that they are the party of whiny children.

No, that's called our Republic at work. Democrats don't like it? Tough.
This entire situation is putting into words better than anyone else can why people are angry at Democrats trying to stuff districts with 'future voters' while simultaneously demanding that everyone only get a binary choice at the election. Dems were also the same party that passed the also-undemocratic as fuck Third Party stifling bills in the 90's when Ross Perot upstaged a ton of Republican districts, too. If these third parties were given proper funding through our election funding donations on taxes, then there is a chance we could have a sizable (but still small) third party presence in our country.
Apparently, ask any die hard blue voter, that's somehow a bad thing.
Our republic is a great system. The problem is that there has been too much protectionism implemented into our voting process since its founding to the point where it only makes sense to vote for one of two parties.
We could have a functioning three or four party system if the obstructive legislation was removed, but doing that would require the permission of the Duopoly we have running our government, so it doesn't happen.
this simplest way to stop this shit:
1) No social assistance of any kind within the first five years of coming to the U.S.A. legally.
2) A $10,000 fine per instance on any individual or business that employs someone here illegally.
3) A $10,000 fine on any individual or business that rents housing to someone here illegally.
4) Imprison any elected official who breaks federal law by letting illegal immigrants out of prison.
5) Prosecute, and potentially execute any judge who lets off a illegal immigrant who has committed a violent crime and then commits more violent crime after being released. Charge the judge with the same crime as the illegal.
6) Deduct any and all costs of the above to the home country of the illegal immigrant from any assistance received from the U.S.A.
7) Make coming here legally much easier.
8) Grant citizenship to the immediate family of any person who serves in our military.
No anon, he said taxes not federal taxes. Sorry to burst yet another /pol/ack narrative. Most taxes are not income taxes.

Remember that story we ran a few months ago about a man who claimed he cured his terminal cancer with a cheap dog deworming medicine? Well, apparently it recently went viral in South Korea and stocks of the antiparasitic medicine have been depleted.

Back in May, the story of Joe Tippens, an Oklahoma man who allegedly cured his terminal with the help of a $5 dog deworming drug called fenbendazole, went viral. Doctors said the cancer had spread everywhere in his body and he only had about three months to live, but today he is cured and he credits the veterinary medicine for the miracle. The news made headlines all around the world, but it really made a big impact in South Korea, where stocks of fenbendazole have evaporated due to people buying it as a way to prevent or cure cancer.

Despite several warnings by doctors and the South Korean government regarding potential side-effects of taking fenbendazole, the drug has been virtually flying off the helves of vet pharmacies. The craze stated back in September, when YouTube videos detailing the story of Joe Tippens with Korean subtitles started becoming popular. Soon, cancer patients started following the American’s example, taking small doses of the deworming medicine and documenting their experience on social media. Doctors’ attempts to discourage people from taking fenbendazole have so far been unsuccessful.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Vet pharmacies all over South Korean have been reporting increased demand for fenbendazole from people desperate to cure themselves or their relatives of cancer, as well as difficulties securing stocks of the dog dewormer.

“It has become difficult to secure fenbendazole over the past few weeks following the news about the US cancer patient taking the drug,” one pharmacist told the South China Morning Post. “Patients seem to be greatly influenced by what they read online.”
A veterinary surgeon told the Hong-Kong-based newspaper that he understands people’s desperate situations, but he simply won’t sell it for use by humans, as it’s a drug meant for animals. His views are shared by other medical experts, some of whom claim the fenbendazole craze has already resulted in some serious health issues, including people being rushed to the emergency room with intestinal necrosis caused by fenbendazole overdoses.

Despite all the warnings, the craze shows no signs of dying down, and with celebrities like South Korean comedian and singer Kim Chul-min, who suffers from stage four lung cancer, jumping on the fenbendazole bandwagon, doctors appear to have their hands full. And many of them are blaming YouTube.

“The craze about fenbendazole could not have happened without the internet. YouTube is spreading fast and wide what appears to be a false hope,” doctor Ahn Byoung-hai told SCMP.
So does it work?
If it actually worked, do you think the company would brand the drug as a "dog-dewormer" over "cure to cancer"?
Depends if it was tested as one. To legally brand yourself as a cancer cure, you have to test for it in clinical trials. So if they only tested its ability at deworming dogs, the anticancer properties may have never been assessed. That said, I doubt it works
If it worked, do you think it would be only 5 dollars for a package?

The shirtless 15-year-old screams as he lies facedown on the kitchen floor of his group home in Tucson, Arizona. He has no arms or legs, so he can't flee or fight back. A sheriff's deputy at least twice his size is crouching over him and pinning him to the ground, using his body weight to restrain the quadruple amputee.

The eight-minute cellphone video has now prompted an internal affairs investigation at the Pima County Sheriff's Department, according to KOLD, which first published the footage on Thursday.

But Pima County Public Defender Joel Feinman told The Washington Post that the disturbing incident likely wouldn't have come to light if it weren't for another teenager at the group home, who filmed the confrontation and then had his head slammed into the wall by deputies.

"These are kids who have already been traumatized in some way," said Feinman, whose office is representing both boys. If a parent reacted to their teenager acting up in the same way the deputy did, he added, "they might be arrested for child abuse."

While most information about the teens is being withheld to protect their privacy, Feinman said that Immanuel, the 15-year-old quadruple amputee, is in state custody because he was abandoned by his parents. On the morning of Sept. 26, an adult who works at the group home called police to report that Immanuel had knocked over a trash can and was yelling and screaming. Feinman isn't sure what riled the teen and, in his opinion, it doesn't matter.

"Fifteen-year-olds who have not been through what Immanuel went through act out all the time," he said.

The deputy from the Pima County Sheriff's Department who responded to the call determined that Immanuel was disturbing the peace, and decided to restrain him, Feinman said. That's when C.J., a 16-year-old who also lives at the group home, began surreptitiously filming from an adjoining room.

US authorities have arrested and charged a 20-year-old student from Chicago with providing material support to ISIS.

According to court documents, the teen allegedly created a Python script to automate saving ISIS multimedia from official social media channels, so other members could re-post it on their own accounts, and help spread the terrorist group's propaganda.

Furthermore, the student, Thomas Osadzinski, 20, from Chicago, also promised to build a lightweight Gentoo Linux distro for the terrorist organization.

"I will began a new and very valuable project," the student wrote in an online discussion with an undercover FBI agent in March this year.

"I will be developing a custom gentoo linux version designed for ansar [ISIS supporters] it can run on any computer and will be very lightweight, fast, and secure."

Osadzinski allegedly told the FBI undercover agent that he would develop the Gentoo Linux distro on his own and publish project updates in an online chat room.

"It will be very secure, in sha allah it will only browse [Social Media Platform 1]. When there are less things installed the operating system is harder to hack," Osadzinski allegedly said.

>A white supremacist manifesto was apparently Airdropped to students at a Syracuse University library on Tuesday — a day after a fraternity was suspended for alleged racism, and multiple instances of racist graffiti have been reported to campus authorities.

>Multiple students who were in the Bird Library allegedly received a copy of a racist manifesto — supposedly the 74-page anti-immigrant document written by the Christchurch, New Zealand shooter — around 1 a.m., and a copy of the document was also posted on an online forum, the school's public safety department said.

>"Airdrop" is a feature available to Apple users who have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features enabled. It allows users to send photos or documents, among other items, to people around them who also have the feature turned on.

>These reports have yet to be confirmed and there is no specific threat to Syracuse University," safety officials wrote in a news release on Tuesday. "The Department of Public Safety is investigating these reports and has notified the Syracuse Police Department, the New York State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."

After students received the doc, a public safety officer told them "to not walk home alone," student newspaper The Daily Orange reported. A link to the manifesto was also apparently posted to Greekrank.com, a platform used to rate Greek life at universities, around 10:30 the night before.

Meta-analysis of 83 studies produces ‘very strong’ evidence for a negative relationship between intelligence and religiosity

New research confirms that there is a negative relationship between religiosity and intelligence. The findings have been published in the scientific journal

Excerpts of potential interest:


"One possibility [is] that people use their religious beliefs [to obtain] self-enhancement, a sense of empowerment, and better self-regulation... extensive research evidence that more intelligent people already benefit from higher self-evaluation, a higher sense of control, and more efficient self-control. As such, more intelligent people have less of a need for religiosity"

"It is possible that more intelligent people are less religious because they are more rational, an inference that is consistent with the finding that the IRR was partially mediated by analytic style"

"Most of these studies were conducted in the West, primarily in the United States. Our findings, therefore, do not apply to Eastern religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism."

A recent study shows that 99.9% of people who start an interjection with the word "Well" are uneducated and self obsessed. Oh, and they often smell of corn dogs and Old Spice.
Believe in lies and watch your intelligence suffer. People that are smart are capable of determining weather something is true or not without needing an authority figure to tell them.
Believing in bullshit is like cutting yourself in the mind.


Unfortunately, this is the only English version of the article I have found but a woman was found in Bratislava, barely alive, died on the way to hospital. According to other articles she was beaten, raped and had a broken bone.
It happened 11/11 but police identified her 2 days later (no phone or ID), info about the case got out I guess a week later after they found her - on one hand I understand they didn't want the murderer to know what they are doing, but is it safe for people living there? Obviously, it's a dangerous person.
