The court of justice considers that the effect of the Scottish legislation is significantly to restrict the market, and this might be avoided by the introduction of a tax measure designed to increase the price of alcohol instead of a measure imposing a minimum price per unit of alcohol.

When Capitalism Runs Roughshod over even your government, the capitlaists will still call it Communism.

His supporters, Ford Nation, tend to be blue collar, without university education, mostly male. They have little use for government or for a political establishment they believe doesn’t care about them. Whatever’s broken in their lives, they think somebody else caused it; their prejudices help identify who that might be. They’re angry and alienated and will vote for someone who seems that way too. Once their brains host an opinion, no fact is likely to change it. The people at Trump rallies look and sound very similar to the ones I’ve met at Ford political gatherings.

Remember that line there “somebody else caused it”

However, a check by CNN of traveling family members on UK Electoral Roll shows an email address associated with 18-year-old Hamza Mahmoud that links to a suspicious Facebook page.

The page appears to belong to a Birmingham resident with a similar name, whose occupation is listed as Supervisor at Taliban and Leader at al-Qaeda.

When asked by reporters about the Facebook link, the family said the email listed on the electoral roll is incorrect, missing some characters, and that the son lives in London, not Birmingham.

Tariq Mahmoud confirmed his son Hamza was part of the trip, and he told CNN the family had no knowledge of the Facebook page until asked about it by a reporter.

If you or someone with your name states on Facebook that they are a terrorist, prepare for some travel troubles….?

A cache of texts between the officers was uncovered as part of a 2014 federal corruption investigation into SFPD Sgt. Ian Furminger, who was found guilty of taking money from drug dealers for his own personal use. The messages, some of which are collected here, show Furminger and other cops enthusing about burning crosses, disparaging the intelligence of black officers, and remarking that “niggers should be spayed.”

When people tell you that Cops aren’t all Bad, the Bad ones are REALLY Bad.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge’.

In Light of Donald Trump’s Ascendancy, this Asimov Quote is good to have on hand

It’s strange that such a chauvinist monster like me has been asked to speak to women scientists. Let me tell you about my trouble with girls. Three things happen when they are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them they cry. Perhaps we should make separate labs for boys and girls? Now seriously, I’m impressed by the economic development of Korea. And women scientists played, without doubt, an important role in it. Science needs women and you should do science despite all the obstacles, and despite monsters like me.

In context Tim Hunt wasn’t the villain; he was making a point

Okay that is far enough. It is time for Trudeau to stop running around taking selfies and start doing something from his actual job description.

Do people just not understand that the Canadian Dollar is Indexed to Oil Prices? Really?
