Intelligence officers have identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in Britain as potential terrorist attackers, it emerged yesterday.

About 3,000 people from the total group are judged to pose a threat and are under investigation or active monitoring in 500 operations being run by police and intelligence services. The 20,000 others have featured in previous inquiries and are categorised as posing a “residual risk”.

You would think with numbers like these there would be a push to hire more homeland security workers (blanket descriptor to cover all the above needs) .

Jobs!

The same for any country. Need, want jobs here's the new normal.

WPA days becomes HSA days.

As long as the gap is at big as it is today envy will cause terrorism.

I was taught envy is a weakness and only leads to trouble. Maybe a lack of up bringing is the cause of terrorism. The synonyms speak loads. All are choices.

envy
1.a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else's possessions, qualities, or luck:
"she felt a twinge of envy for the people on board"
synonyms: jealousy · covetousness · resentment · bitterness · discontent ·
VERB
1.desire to have a quality, possession, or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else):
"he envied people who did not have to work on weekends" ·
synonyms: be envious of · be jealous of · begrudge · be resentful of

How do you compete with and or combat a religion that promises heaven for a jihadist dying for the cause?

It is more than that https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=81470&postid=1868915
How do you stop a person promised eternal damnation if they don't die for the cause.

Same thing. Just a different direction of push. They have you (if you buy into it) whether you are coming or going. Believers are trapped.

Again, How do you complete/combat this Ideology?

Thanks for looking.

Turns out Bob is really Bobbie. She came around today alone. She must have lost her tail when really young. Can't see a scar.

Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a bunny rabbit.

Meet Bob. This little guy showed up yesterday with mom and dad in tow. I've never seen a squirrel with no tail. He's got a stub looks like. I can't see any wound/healed area. Looks natural.





I'll spike the patio with more cracked/broken sunflower seeds and see if he is a local and get more photos. His parents look familiar. They will sit there and eat the crushed seeds. Anything else they fill their face then scamper away and bury it in the yard.

Party crashers!

Love it, eight hummers in that one photo.

If still not showing color it could have been a family outing. I'm not sure when hummers cut the apron strings.

It sounds like there's still going to be a riot in Berkeley tomorrow because apposing groups of white supremacists and a group of left wing anarchists are ignoring commandments 2, 3, and 4.

How about next time leaving out the politically charged descriptors and there will be little said.

Google is your friend.

5.Decide if you want a standard driver license or an enhanced driver license. ◦An enhanced driver license (EDL) is an acceptable alternative to a passport for re-entry into the U.S. at land and sea border crossings. A standard driver license can’t be used for border crossings. Getting an EDL has different steps and requires a trip to an EDL office. Follow the steps to getting your EDL/EID if you’d like an EDL.

6.Visit a driver licensing office to apply for a license. If you have a permit, you've already done this and can skip this step. a.Bring your proof of identity and your WA residence street address.
b.Tell us your Social Security number (required to help enforce child support laws). ◦You don’t need to show the card. We’ll still be able to verify it.
◦If you don’t have a Social Security number, you must verify your WA residence address before you can proceed.


They started changing things just recently after Feds refused regular DL. I don't know what has changed for I have WA Enhanced driver license/ID card (EDL/EID) which requires real documentation. So not an issue for me.

Suspect in California drink-drive crash 'deported 15 times'
tRump won't learn from this. Soon it will be 30 times.

They are coming to work and be productive and hell and high water won't stop them.

Better to register them so we know who is who and they can get things like drivers licenses and car insurance.

We already do that up here Washington. That is why a Washington DL will no longer get you on a plane or back in from Canada.

Constantino Banda-Acosta, 38, drove his truck through a stop sign and hit a car carrying a family of three on their way home from a trip to Disneyland.

They said they were one block from home when the collision occurred.

The six-year-old boy suffered brain trauma and is said to be in a serious condition.

Because potential tourists read these stories and decide on more peaceful and sensible destinations to go to, even if it costs them a bit more to get there. ;-)

Cheers.

Maybe it is just as well they holiday in their homeland. Money spent abroad does little for the homeland.

There speaks a person who lives in a country where most types of weather and scenery are available within his countries borders.

Pacific Northwest, the world's finest of places. wink wink
