>The Oklahoma House of Representatives has approved a measure that would allow adoption and foster care agencies to reject same-sex couples on religious grounds.

>The measure, S.B. 1140, states that "no private child-placing agency shall be required to perform, assist, counsel, recommend, consent to, refer, or participate in any placement of a child for foster care or adoption when the proposed placement would violate the agency's written religious or moral convictions or policies."

>That means that adoption and foster care agencies could turn down same-sex couples, single mothers and inter-faith couples if an agency claims that approving such applications would violate its religious or moral convictions.

>The bill was approved by the Oklahoma state Senate last month and now heads to Gov. Mary Fallin's (R) desk.

Wait didn't the supreme Court say he didn't have to bake the cake. Just because the board was really being dicks to him?
So isn't the standard here that so long as the private institutions aren't being dicks. They don't have to serve gay couples?
Good, faggots are subhuman.
Don't worry, they're out there all over the place. You might say they are the norm, in fact.
No they want them to linger in a broken system that is undermanned, ignored, and corrupt as shit

If you honestly think anyone in the foster care system gives a fuck about these kids you have one hell of a red pill coming
They try to stay away from abnormal people.
Maybe it is just where you live or the people around you?

Remember hearing about "Sucker Punching." That too was hate crimes. Yet the media and law enforcement covered that up and said it was some sort of stupid thug trend. When in fact, most of the victims were white and the punchers were........black.

So it’s that easy to manipulate the Democratic Party?
So did the republicans run with this for three years, and the rest of the media use it to smear him and treat him like Hitler, or did it just disappear after a month?
You keep saying other politicians are disconnected from reality when the reality is that president of the United states, which is a position that's a really big deal to some people in and out of office, is literally a fucking 70 something year old senile shitposter who literally puts his entire foot and shoe into his mouth anytime anything happens and has made a situation unironically worse for himself and then complained about it and literally managing to single handily caused that whole disconnect from reality when he spent every waking second calling everything that wasn't kissing his ass fake news. Not everyone is a vicious shitposter themselves who can shrug off the diarrhea that flies out his mouth and of course as the damn president you're gonna have your words and opinions watched with zealous scrutiny. He literally can't come out of any controversy with any modicum of grace and lashes out like a child every single time. What in the absolute fuck are you talking about? All Trump literally had to do to not exacerbate himself into this "witchhunt" was delete Twitter and take some fucking Aricept.

BOSTON -- The man behind the scheme to help wealthy students get into elite colleges by cheating on tests and faking athletic credentials advised some families to falsely claim students were racial minorities, according to people familiar with the situation.

A son of Marjorie Klapper, a parent scheduled to plead guilty Friday for participating in the scheme, was incorrectly listed on his Common Application as being black and Hispanic, the people said. William "Rick" Singer, the college counselor who has agreed to plead guilty in the case and is awaiting sentencing, also arranged for a proctor to cheat on the ACT admissions test for the teen, according to a Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit filed in the case.

Ms. Klapper, who lives in Menlo Park, Calif., was one of many parents charged whose child was misrepresented as a minority, according to one of the people, who is familiar with the investigation.

Mr. Singer frequently gave families the option of misrepresenting race and would say that not doing so could put their child at a "competitive disadvantage," said one of the people, who is familiar with his business.

In looking to present a teen as a minority, Mr. Singer was tapping into a hot-button aspect of college admissions that has led to numerous lawsuits: decisions that take into account, or even give preference to, students of certain races or ethnicities.

Lawyers for Ms. Klapper didn't respond to requests for comment, and efforts to reach Ms. Klapper were unsuccessful. The lawyer for Mr. Singer declined to comment.

Will claiming I'm transnigger get me into college?
If race is actually just a social construct, which is taught in many of these colleges, then everyone who claims to be a certain race is making a false claim.
It either that or your dad has to pay a $6,000,000 bribe, your choice
When people realize that "Racial Equality" is not providing extra incentives for minorities, we'll have become a sane society, until then, I'm going to check that I'm African American (even though I'm so damned white), just so I can survive college.

I think that if enough people do it, people will stop caring about diversity, and give people fair ease of college education.
Check Islamic if there is a religious preference also.

There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than there has been for 800,000 years — since before our species evolved.

On Saturday (May 11), the levels of the greenhouse gas reached 415 parts per million (ppm), as measured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. Scientists at the observatory have been measuring atmospheric carbon dioxide levels since 1958. But because of other kinds of analysis, such as those done on ancient air bubbles trapped in ice cores, they have data on levels reaching back 800,000 years.

During the ice ages, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere were around 200 ppm. And during the interglacial periods — the planet is currently in an interglacial period — levels were around 280 ppm, according to NASA.

But every story has its villains: Humans are burning fossil fuels, causing the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which are adding an extra blanket on an already feverish planet. So far, global temperatures have risen by about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) since the 19th century or pre-industrial times, according to a special report released last year by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Every year, the Earth sees about 3 ppm more carbon dioxide in the air, said Michael Mann, a distinguished professor of meteorology at Penn State University. "If you do the math, well, it's pretty sobering," he said. "We'll cross 450 ppm in just over a decade."

The subsequent warming is already causing changes to the planet — shrinking glaciers, bleaching coral reefs and intensifying heat waves and storms, among other impacts. And carbon dioxide levels higher than 450 ppm "are likely to lock in dangerous and irreversible changes in our climate," Mann told Live Science.

i disagree; wealthy industrialized nations have a great deal of clout in the rest of the world via treaties, sanctions, trade incentives, deals on emerging green technology etc - what you need is strong leadership and a commitment to actually do something elsewhere in these countries instead of the half-assed measures and obsessing about gdp you have currently.
i think the point is moot though; large numbers of people in developing nations stand to be affected by AGW before anyone else; many will likely be subjected to food shortages as crops fail, their societies will become less stable, and the economic conditions that would allow them to assume a lifestyle like our own will simply not exist.
Pretty much the only thing mattering is emissions, not the amount of people. That's why we need to move away from oil, coal etc. When there WILL be more people and who WILL want the developed countries lifestyle (heavy emissions by using cars for example) there wouldn't be dramatically more emissions.

AND at the same time we will lower emissions in countries like US, China and European countries. Which is a lot.
why chinks so smart then?
Then plant some shrubs. The plants will turn that exhale into oxygen.
6 Billion people in Developing Nations would disagree.
North America and Europe are barely 600 million people now.
10-1 odds.
China and India each emit more than the US and EU combined.
Habitat destruction in Africa and SE Asia will continue as population increases.
China is spending billions of Yuan to industrialize Africa, beginning with railroads and port facilities.
It is their long term policy to do so as they see Africa as their food and raw materials source.
India is going to continue to industrialize.
EU and US emissions can drop to Zero and total emissions will continue to rise.
How are you going to convince China?
They don't care and are rapidly increasing the size of their Navy in order to improve their ability to project power in the region.
They want to secure trade routes to Africa and the Middle East.
They aren't looking East to Hawaii and the US West Coast.

A mum started to experience blackouts after becoming addicted to energy drinks.

Samantha Sharpe, 33, had to be fitted with a pacemaker when doctors discovered she had a second degree heart blockage after she passed out one day.

They could not be certain the sugary beverages had caused the heart condition but told her it certainly did not help.

She also suffered with kidney stones and was on the verge of Type Two diabetes due to the amount of sugar she was consuming.

Ms Sharpe, from Hamilton, has now warned others to limit the amount of energy drinks they have as it could be detrimental to their health.

She said: ‘My sister, who is a nurse, said the addiction is worse than that of heroin, which I can understand because I needed it to help me be awake.’

Ms Sharpe started drinking up to six energy drinks each day due to her hectic lifestyle.

She added: ‘I have three children and I work so it was daily life that pushed me to drinking the energy drinks.

Literally only retards drink energy drinks.

I drink 1 a day. I actually consume less sugar than I did before.

There's literally nothing harmful about energy drinks, so long as you don't drink the off brand shit. Monster contains ginseng and sugar. That shit aint worse than heroin.

It only becomes a problem if you're consuming 6 fucking cans a day like this dumb bitch. 1 can of monster has around 50g of sugar. This slut was literally ingesting 300g of sugar or more....daily. Yet she has the nerve to blame energy drinks?

That does not contradict that taxes were RAISED on the poor. They do not even conflict. Just because the poor and middle class have less and pay less, does not mean you cannot raise their taxes. There is no conflict.

Newly obtained tax information reveals that from 1985 to 1994, Donald J. Trump’s businesses were in far bleaker condition than was previously known.

May 7, 2019

By the time his master-of-the-universe memoir “Trump: The Art of the Deal” hit bookstores in 1987, Donald J. Trump was already in deep financial distress, losing tens of millions of dollars on troubled business deals, according to previously unrevealed figures from his federal income tax returns.

Mr. Trump was propelled to the presidency, in part, by a self-spun narrative of business success and of setbacks triumphantly overcome. He has attributed his first run of reversals and bankruptcies to the recession that took hold in 1990. But 10 years of tax information obtained by The New York Times paints a different, and far bleaker, picture of his deal-making abilities and financial condition.

The data — printouts from Mr. Trump’s official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, for the years 1985 to 1994 — represents the fullest and most detailed look to date at the president’s taxes, information he has kept from public view. Though the information does not cover the tax years at the center of an escalating battle between the Trump administration and Congress, it traces the most tumultuous chapter in a long business career — an era of fevered acquisition and spectacular collapse.

The numbers show that in 1985, Mr. Trump reported losses of $46.1 million from his core businesses — largely casinos, hotels and retail space in apartment buildings. They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade.

You people have been desperate lately. I think this is the fourth thread in the last week that blatantly misrepresent what the article says
Looks like you just lost a thousand dollars, you're slowly getting to the amount of money Trump has lost because he's a terrible businessman who needed to launder money.

he wait has begun. Polling in India's marathon elections concluded at the weekend, with the results due on May 23.

Private polling commissioned by Indian media outlets points to a second term for the incumbent, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), although, given the patchy record of these polls, which have been wrong in past elections, we won't know for sure until later this week.
But if he does return to power, what might Modi 2.0 mean for India? One way of trying to answer that question is to compare campaign 2019 to the one that unfolded five years ago.
In 2014, when Modi first ran for national office -- he was already a major regional figure by then, running western Gujarat state for over a decade -- his campaign was dominated by his promises to usher in a sort of economic renaissance: Modi spoke of reforms to, among other things, make India an easier place to do business, make it better at generating jobs for the millions of young Indians who enter the workforce each year and to clean house to stamp out corruption.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 and 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog.

The transactions, some of which involved Mr. Trump’s now-defunct foundation, set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity, according to five current and former bank employees. Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes.

But executives at Deutsche Bank, which has lent billions of dollars to the Trump and Kushner companies, rejected their employees’ advice. The reports were never filed with the government.

The nature of the transactions was not clear. At least some of them involved money flowing back and forth with overseas entities or individuals, which bank employees considered suspicious.

Real estate developers like Mr. Trump and Mr. Kushner sometimes do large, all-cash deals, including with people outside the United States, any of which can prompt anti-money laundering reviews. The red flags raised by employees do not necessarily mean the transactions were improper. Banks sometimes opt not to file suspicious activity reports if they conclude their employees’ concerns are unwarranted.

But former Deutsche Bank employees said the decision not to report the Trump and Kushner transactions reflected the bank’s generally lax approach to money laundering laws. The employees — most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to preserve their ability to work in the industry — said it was part of a pattern of the bank’s executives rejecting valid reports to protect relationships with lucrative clients.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.
