WOW. Soros may not have been wrong. The UK has taken a 10% haircut and the markets over there aren't even open. Hope all you Setizens had your cash in Euro's!

Metro Gold Line repair/maintenance facility.

Wish I could get a pic but

Is the right spot to take it and that is in the middle of the freeway.

If google behaves there are two new (at that time) trains in the yard.

No second amendment with gun control
http://www.dw.com/en/shooting-in-german-cinema-several-injured/a-19350871
A heavily armed man who barricaded himself in a cinema in the German town of Viernheim has been shot dead. According to a German broadcaster, at least 25 people have been injured.


And no first amendment either
Local police have announced a press embargo.

The truth won't be told.
<ed>now reports are zero injured.
How do you go from 25 injured to zero? A Press Embargo!

Each of the Fifty Sovereign States have a different interpretation.

Yes. Isn't that a problem that the US Constitution is interpreted differently between the states?
And it makes me wonder why?

Brits and US can't agree on how to spell words or what they mean. Why are your surprised? Language evolves.

They all have completely lost the plot if they are lost for words and have no powers of reason and instead have to resort to non-verbal childish schoolyard tantrums.


That is not what politics should be about. A disgrace to you all!

Oh, yes, "childish schoolyard tantrums" perfect description of the Democratic party's the present sit-in protest.

, no license, no insurance, no registration.

Here they're the worst drivers.
Always entertaining seeing the news "...Picked up for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) while un-licensed in an un-registered vehicle, for the 4th, 5th, 8th time..."

Different reason. Illegals can't obtain them no matter how good they dive. Drunks can't get them because they are such bad drivers.

Who wants to be associated to a mob sociaty?

Drumpf wants to run one. See that [fill in the blank] over there, he is [fill in the blank] and must be beaten down and devalued as a human.

We'll never see our lot do anything like this :-(

Democrats hold "sit-in" protest

I don't get it.

Our Congress has lost the plot.

What is so hard about have proper vetting and due process gun laws?

You are vetted to get on the list and you have due process to get off the list.

If they would just add vetting and due process it would pass in a flash.

They don't want it to pass. They want it to fail so they can use it as political points in the next election. The people who are killed are dead because of party politics. The despicable ones are the party strategists.

And one of the most interesting points made towards the end of the show, was that as car safety has improved greatly over the years (suspension, tyres, roads, car strength, ability to absorb impact etc) people's driving has become less cautious, more aggressive/reckless. The safer roads & cars become, the less care people take while driving, so

making something idiot proof really does result in a better idiot.

Perhaps they explains why in the heavy Latino (as Drumpf would say illegal) area in Los Angeles they drive with caution, no license, no insurance, no registration.

All Hail Thor.

From the
“Wow, they just don't get it” file:

Microsoft Is Spying On what You Code

The fiduciary duty to the shareholder, the legal requirement to use EVERY method to make money. You are right, some people don't get what that means in combination with data mining.

<ed>And who knows if they got a NSL?

What sort of a simpleton would support Mr Trump?

You know better than to ask such a complex question. It would require an IQ over [redacted] to answer it.

Scary if true

I see the name Hannity attached to that. One can be assured the report is Faux.

I find Brexit interesting in this. Remain and give up your army to a higher level of government. Call that akin to Texas giving up its army (Texas National Guard) to the United States. And you in the UK already gave up your personal gun rights. Perhaps there is some element of that in what is going on in America and gun rights being reflected in Brexit? Fear of faceless bureaucrats.

Shouldn't everyone be working to cut down on illegal access?

America banned booze at one point. It simply made criminals of the majority of Americans and brought out criminal gangs. It is those gangs now that old ban created that are a problem. Do another ban? What will that bring forth?

The very real issue is the inability of the USA to address mental issues. If you look at the gun death numbers something like 75% are suicide. That does not include the ones called suicide by cop, or terrorists hell bent on being martyred.

We need to have a debate about databases. How names go on them. How names come off them. But the bureaucrats will not cede their secrecy and allow this debate to happen, perhaps because it would show their incompetency.

We also need mental health care in the USA. A change in attitude that it isn't a leper condition. Mental health care also needs to drop the religious crap about sexuality.

Finally I can assure you no NRA member wants the guy in the next lane at the gun range to be a crazy or a terrorist. He justs want to be sure some officious bureaucrat can't label him as one, unless he is one.
