>A court in Indonesia has sentenced the capital's Christian governor to two years in prison for blasphemy against Islam, in a decision that has cheered Muslim conservatives and crushed the hopes of advocates of a more pluralistic and tolerant path for their nation.

The Gangster state breaks international law once again by protecting terrorists. An F18 has shot down an SU22 near Raqqa in a desperate attempt to gain a foothold in the region.

The “flagrant attack was an attempt to undermine the efforts of the army as the only effective force capable with its allies ... in fighting terrorism across its territory,” the Syrian statement said.

“This comes at a time when the Syrian army and its allies were making clear advances in fighting the Daesh (Islamic State) terrorist group.”

In terms of international perception, the United States is at it's worse. Pissing off basically everyone while allies distance itself from the schizophrenic nation on the verge of economic collapse.

To be fair, I remember some MSM sites reporting on that issue. It was like some fucking stupid-ass rule that allows you to never pay taxes, as long as you are bad at business.

That said, it was not a lot of reporting, and the whole, "he is hiding tax fraud," thing was always overwrought in my eyes. Rich people don't need to cheat to not pay taxes in America.

I used to like him. He gave out the impression that he was for reconciling the differences between the right and left. It was very admirable and it's what was originally alluring to me about him. However, he is very dishonest in his motives. He inflates the dangers of identity politics to the point where he uses this to both strawman leftism and distance himself and his audiences from leftism.

I think its cool that he gives alt-right and conservatives a platform, but he should have the integrity to admit what hes doing. He isnt trying to bridge gaps but widen them. I think it's great he earns a lot, but I don't admire his honesty; He gets rich by fooling naive millenials.

With all due respect, I think you might be misunderstanding how economic theory works. There are lots of economicmeasurements we think of as related in a curve/function way, even though we can't actually measure know its shape because it would require jumping into infinitely many identical worlds and testing individual data points. All of Keynesian economics is built on the IS-LM curves, or maybe check out the Phillips curve for a now-obsolete or at least disputed curve. It's all models in the end, if you want to 'write something and add a bunch of data' and you actually end up with a model that predicts future data pretty well, go on and publish it.


There's nothing out of the ordinary about the assumptions you have to make to draw up the Laffer Curve (in fact they're remarkably modest, most of the IS-LM-model assumptions break down when you shift the data even a tiny bit), which is also why you won't get much information out of it. I'm not sure why you keep insisting on this simplistic concept being dangerous and wrong, rather than the way it is used. Its like blaming the idea of multiplying numbers for the banking crisis, jsut because that's what you do when calculating interest.

I may well at that. Thank you for breaking it to me so politely. My understanding is mostly that Art Laffers work is at best a theoretical musing based on very little data whereas he, and others, to this day, claim it is a basic economic certainty that lowering taxes will increase government revenue through growth. It's nowhere near as robust as what is generally considered sound economics. There is nothing wrong with an experiment but it's duplicitous to call it anything but that.

I doubt that. What's there to gain for Russia from that? And I think the US would know if it was or wasn't. People are turning on Qatar because they made a deal with Iran to forget about the proposed pipeline that would've went through Syria and instead sell their gas to China which would devalue the petrodollar. Since I hate the idea of China taking over, I support the US and Saudis against Qatar, fuck them. And they do support terrorism, so does the Saudis though, but we'll get them later

>AP Exclusive: UN child sex ring left victims but no arrests
https://apnews.com/e6ebc331460345c5abd4f57d77f535c1

In the ruins of a tropical hideaway where jetsetters once sipped rum under the Caribbean sun, the abandoned children tried to make a life for themselves. They begged and scavenged for food, but they never could scrape together enough to beat back the hunger, until the U.N. peacekeepers moved in a few blocks away.

The men who came from a far-away place and spoke a strange language offered the Haitian children cookies and other snacks. Sometimes they gave them a few dollars. But the price was high: The Sri Lankan peacekeepers wanted sex from girls and boys as young as 12.

"I did not even have breasts," said a girl, known as V01 — Victim No. 1. She told U.N. investigators that over the next three years, from ages 12 to 15, she had sex with nearly 50 peacekeepers, including a "Commandant" who gave her 75 cents. Sometimes she slept in U.N. trucks on the base next to the decaying resort, whose once-glamorous buildings were being overtaken by jungle.

US President Donald Trump's bid to slash funding for the United Nations would make it "impossible" for it to continue its essential work, a UN spokesman says, adding that the organisation is ready to discuss reform with Washington.

The Trump proposal cuts about a third from US diplomacy and aid budgets, or nearly $US19 billion ($A25 billion). This includes cutting some $US1 billion from a UN peacekeeping funding and a steep cut to funding for international organisations.

So do you have any evidence Sessions, the Attorney General appointed by Trump supports legalizing pot?
Because everything he has said on the subject indicates very strongly otherwise.

The silver lining is that congress probably isn't going to give him the funds to expand the drug war in the way he'd like.

I sincerely have no clue with critique circles are. I do mindfulness meditations on my own, though. Good for the noggin. You might want to try it.

Besides, calling me a commie, especially when I support capitalism, isn't really addressing what I said or what the first reply guy said. So, whatever, my dude.

UN members provide the soldiers so no, not really. If you're lucky you might end up with a bunch of Norwegian and Swedish soldiers but far more commonly you'll end up with a few armed derkhas from a Pakistani backwater.

I'm overdoing it but that's basically how it works.

I'm sure it's the same guys who used to be known as MILF. I can't say I blame the Moro Islamic Liberation Front for switching brands. They're a bit late tbh, American Pie was ages ago.
Whatevs, they''re going to face a government run by a terrorist now.

Trump pushes to privatize Air Traffic Control. by Nicholas Henningshit - Tue, 06 Jun 2017 12:47:20 EST ID:CgCM1jv+ No.159068 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

http://www.npr.org/2017/06/05/531574945/trump-announces-plan-to-privatize-air-traffic-control
>Guided by legislation that has been proposed in the past by House Transportation Committee chairman Bill Shuster, a private, nonprofit corporation would be created to operate, manage and control air traffic control nationwide, similar to what Canada does. The FAA would still have some oversight capacity, but a board made up mostly of representatives of the major airlines would govern this corporation.

>Privatization of air traffic control is an idea long supported by most of the commercial airlines. Executives from those companies joined the president at the White House to announce the plan.
>The air traffic controllers' union is generally supportive of the proposal, as it sees the current FAA air traffic control system as somewhat inefficient. The Shuster plan would still allow for the controllers to be part of the union.

>The FAA says it has modernized in recent years by updating its computers and other systems. Administrator Michael Huerta told an industry conference in March that the agency has made "tremendous progress," per The Associated Press.
>But some groups have been critical of efforts to privatize air traffic control operations, saying it gives the airlines too much control over the system for their own benefit.
>The group Flyers' Rights calls it the "creation of an airline controlled corporate monopoly." It also says privatizing air traffic control amounts to "handing the airlines (for free) control over a core public asset, and providing them nearly unbridled power to extract new fees and increased taxes from passengers."

>Trump has been critical in the past of the FAA and air traffic control, saying his personal pilot has complained about how out of date and inefficient the agency is.


When Trump said infrastructure I thought he meant funding the construction/repair of roads, bridges, drinking water, power grid, not giving air traffic control to corporations after we just spent billions modernizing it.

We won't know for a long time, and maybe it will work out somehow, but allowing the largest in the industry to set the regulations, fees, and practices everyone in the industry must follow is a recipe for an oligopoly.

If they don't use this to pass regulations that benefit them or hurt their competition and establish barriers to enter the market, they're not very good capitalists.

I ain't tryna be rude but its just plain ignorance to think that religion is the driving factor in conflicts in Ireland. It was a power struggle against an empire above all us. The IRA in the 70s supported groups like the black panthers..far from catholic extremists. They seem to above all have been socialist guerillas. Yfuck protestant Brit armies were fighting armed guerillas in India too. Connect the dots and realize what the tensions arise from but don't boil it down to religion alone. Religion like I said was tied into ethnic class systems and that is where the said tensions arise from.

Most Hindus in India were not fond of British white Protestants. I wonder why mate. Was it fuckin another religious battle? No its just what comes with stamping your flag and relgion around the world to blatantly support your oh so great empire. People who are getting the shit end of the stick are going to hate you regardless of the religion their ethnicity' mainly holds.

Let me guess the Micks were violent savage drunks that were too close to your civilized empire to not "rescue". I also heard the usa was founded after brave European kings sent for the rescue of native Americans. People are quick to adhere to these types of thought patterns in such arrogant support of their own nations violence so long as it benefits them and then they wonder where enemies come from. Spoiler alert when you form empires and go to war for control of the world you get enemies..regardless of the propaganda leaders like thatcher or Tony Blair feed you.
