Hahaha Give Wealthy Chinese Investors Residency to Solve Demographic Problems

Yes, they really went there....(FocusTaiwan): The time has become right to *consider allowing Chinese immigrants into Taiwan through investment,* to help tackle *Taiwan's fast-aging population and lift its dwindling economy, *Minister of Economic Affairs Shih Yen-shiang said Thursday. "Taking Taiwan's long-term development into consideration, the worsening demographic issue must be handled carefully to maintain the country's momentum for sustainable economic growth," First, just the comic angle of importing Chinese investors as residents to handle the aging poplation and low birth ... more »

Facing Up to Reality

thwap at thwap's schoolyard - 33 minutes ago
Today's blog post deals with accepting the significance of the situation. It seems that it's only in politics that we acquiesce to the most blatant cheating and criminality. We put up with all sorts of bullshit because we can't fathom doing what is necessary to respond appropriately. Let's be clear: Even if harper didn't steal his majority (and he did) he's on record as showing he has nothing but contempt for the institution of Parliament. His [stolen] domination of the majority of seats in Parliament is the source of his authority but he didn't respect it when he had a majority. As... more »

Lest We Forget

Rufus News From Atlantis at News From Atlantis. - 55 minutes ago
Today marks the anniversary of the armistice which ended the carnage known as the Great War or the First World War. Across the world, services of Remembrance are being held. The men of all European nations who were slaughtered in the tragedy which lasted from 1914 to 1918, deserve more than the mealy-mouthed words of the kin of those who sent them to be slaughtered. The Great War was referred to as 'the war to end all wars'. The truth as we know all too well, was very different. The Great War saw the greatest European blood-letting ever. At no time before, or since, have so m... more »

Libya mission was secret CIA operation: report

Intercept at The Intercept - 1 hour ago
The International News WASHINGTON: The US mission in Benghazi that came under attack by militants on September 11 was mainly a secret CIA operation, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, shedding new light on the deadly assault. President Barack Obama's administration has faced a storm of pre-election questions about why there was not more security at the US consulate where four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed on September 11. The Wall Street Journal said the mission was mainly a CIA operation, adding that of the 30 American officials evacuated f... more »

Canada's First Remembrance Day

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 1 hour ago
“We will remember” is a call heard at many military memorial ceremonies and parades, but it was only in 1931 that Ottawa passed an act permanently fixing Canada’s national military memorial day to the anniversary of Armistice Day, Nov. 11, 1918, marking the end of the Great War. The day was named Remembrance Day. The same act moved Thanksgiving to October from its traditional November date, still adhered to by our American neighbours. Story

Greeks angered by "princes of parliament" pay fight

Lynsey at The Coming Crisis - 1 hour ago
*When Greece's government pushed through a law last week aimed at slashing public wages and raising taxes, its biggest threat was not the firebrand opposition or the 100,000 protesters thronged at the gates of parliament.* It was the assembly's workers themselves, a well-connected group that has long evoked disdain for enjoying the kind of lavish pay and benefits that have become emblematic of the public sector excess at the heart of Greece's debt crisis.

Harper was rejected by 60% of Canadian voters, but he won the election: That’s our parliamentary democracy. Still, it’s useful to remind ourselves of his policies that are not in sync with majority Canadian opinion but mesh with those of Romney and the Republicans. He and they advocate smaller government and lower taxes, deficits and debts. But they believe in pork barrelling, milking government dry for the... more »

DAVID ROSE; AL QAEDA; CHILD ABUSE

Anon at aangirfan - 9 hours ago
*Rose.* The spooky journalist David Rose once wrote an article claiming that nothing much happened at the Jersey children's home Haut de la Garenne. It was David Rose who told us that Saddam Hussein had links to Al Qaeda. *David Rose - disinformation agent?* Now Rose has written an article attacking Steven Messham, a victim of child abuse. According to Rose, Messham falsely claimed to have been abused by a senior police officer. *A victim of his delusions: troubled star witness* * * The Mail discredits itself by employing Rose.

10 Ways The Dinosaur Media Makes Jihadist Terrorists Look Respectable

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 10 hours ago
*What do you see in this man? A radical Islamist who threatens the lives of all Syrians, or a courageous freedom fighter who is willing to risk it all to overthrow a hated tyrant?* Making Jihadist terrorists look respectable, or any terrorists for that matter, is a tricky and difficult task. But there are ten techniques which can be mastered and used in the service of any cause, whether righteous or not. The best propagandists in the world can save the image of the worst terrorists if they have the sufficient resources and the reputation to reach people and make them believe thei... more »

Seen from many vantages, it looks the same. Parliaments are being subverted. Political parties are being bought off or successfully indoctrinated with neo-liberal ideas. The rule of law is being actively and intentionally undermined by governments, police forces, mainstream media, and the courts. The defenses of ordinary people against exploiting power are being erased even while the defenses are being (*hypocritically*) pr... more »

Southern Israel comes under rocket attack from Gaza, IDF strikes back from the air

Matt at The Coming Crisis - 14 hours ago
*More here:* http://www.timesofisrael.com/southern-israel-comes-under-rocket-attack-from-gaza/ *Info conveniently patted on the head:* "Iron dome" intercepted only 2-3 of the 30 missiles (there were likely more fired), rendering the system by almost any definition an utter failure. Strangely, the media, especially Israeli media, refuses to recognizes this, putting Israeli citizens in jeopardy. This rocket attack did not kill nor injure anyone aside from a woman who broke her leg running to a shelter (which she obviously shouldn't have had to do in the first place). The counter-airst... more »

Syria: Child soldier at rebel massacre

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 15 hours ago
YouTube video description [Channel -HRIChannel]: This video shows a particularly horrendous violation of children's rights: the phenomenon of child soldiers. The footage of the massacre of prisoners in Saraqi is evidence not just of a war crime but also of the use of a child soldier by the Syrian rebels. He was used in the assault on the army checkpoint and was at the massacre scene. Please support our campaign to stop the use of child soldiers in Syria!
