Lessons for Living Longer

Some women actually have men on the brain

Canada says it took Guantanamo detainee early after U.S. pressure

Tsk. But not from pressure from Canadians outraged by 'child soldier' fairytales that included testimony later recanted too late to avoid indefinite detention and torture without trial - which Canadian weasels masquerading as government not only did not complain about but said such was improper or some such. Harper and the boys are still not in the clear for Canadian forces kettling Afghans into torture either. It seems o.k. by them - just like kettling Canadians outside negotiations signing away sovereignty at G7 conferences. What the heck. Canadian 'media' certainly weren't interested in proper procedure.

EU squanders our aid millions, says minister: (so why hasn't he done anything about it for two years?)

Lynsey at The Coming Crisis - 1 minute ago
*An aid minister has accused the EU of squandering hundreds of millions of pounds of British taxpayers’ cash on countries that are too wealthy to need help. * Alan Duncan said that while he shared the public’s anger over the massive spending, the UK was being ‘forced’ to hand over huge amounts of money – but then has no say over how it is spent. Last night, however, a fellow Tory accused Mr Duncan of crying ‘crocodile tears’, because he had done nothing to reduce the EU aid bill despite having been in office for the past two years.

But the Exalted Grand Wizard of Wonkiness can't be bothered with the details: RYAN: It’s revenue neutral. [...] WALLACE: But I have to point out, you haven’t given me the math. RYAN: No, but you…well, I don’t have the time. It would take me too long to go through all of the math.

*"World War 3 Conditioning in La La Land"* by Zen Gardner "The hypno-induced psychotic public can’t even hear the war drums any more, no matter how loud and obvious.

All the distracted dystopian subjects can hear is that for some reason American boots march unopposed into far regions of the world, protecting liberty and democracy. So “keep up the good work, boys.
