    I'd like to express my condolences to the loved ones of the deceased victims who attended the concert yesterday. I'd be surprised if they're not traumatized.

    In other unpleasant news, it looks like the civil unrest in Venezuela will get even worse than it already is before it gets better. Just this past Saturday about 46 people were injured, there was atleast one confirmed fatality, and a man was set on fire. Fair warning to the squeamish, the article has pictures featuring the latter incident.

    This article sums up what factors contribute to the problem and why there is no resolution in sight. In a nutshell, it's a combination of overreliance on their oil revenue screwing over their economy, the prospect of social programmes being enshrined in a new constitution by the government sustaining its supporters, and the opposition of the current government rallying behind the sitting President stepping down so a new one can be elected.

    I thought of Godzilla as the embodiment of violence and hatred for mankind, because he was created by atomic energy. He's like a symbol of humanity's complicity in their own destruction. He doesn't have an emotion. He is an emotion. Jun Fukuda

    Any scenario that the opposition would accept the new constitution are the ones that the government won't allow to happen.

    The call for a new constitution is planed to be voted and drafted in a selected pro government environment. Not even close to the Chavez constitution.

    These social programs are the worst possible way to give the benefits to people, as they are expensive unaccountable black boxes of money that distorts the needs of proper medical and educational infrastructure under the lies of "zero anafabetism" or "I got a free gal bladder extraction and I'm ignoring that I could also do that in the previous public health system"

    seems one of the victims was a 8 year-old girl. The nutfucks from ISIS are really a bunch of pathetic persons.

    Every single time there is an attack, every countries are going "We are ready to strengthen the antiterrorist cooperation between countries". Truth is, they can't do more than what they're doing now, but they just need to act as if new measures were being taken.


    also, Dump called the terrorists "evil losers" wtf, is this a game or something? "from now on I'll call them "losers" and not monsters because they would like that term" yeah okay idiot, is this a shaming contest now ?

    Is about the argument of safety vs liberty. No mater how much liberty you sacrifice, you'll never be 100% safe.

    Sacrifice too much liberty and your safety is at risk from the people you gave it to as much as any outside threat.

    And we only get safety theatres instead of safety measures, because most of what can be done is already being done, and "doing something" is more likely to be damaging/stupid than doing nothing. Case in point airport checks.

    The thing is that in order to stop terrorism, more checks and controls to prevent attacks is... Not very effective. Is all a gamble of some agent listening to the right people in the right moment. It needs too much money or manpower to be absolute. And still there will be some crack that will filter through.

    The approach of cutting the money sources of terrorists plus building exit options and just options for their would be supporters should be more effective.

    Sure, the insane arms race makes it impossible to just drop the guard, but stopping the formation of new terrorists should be more important than it is now.

    Yes that's what I said, they have to act as if new measures were being taken because some people need to be reassured. In France, the state of emergency has been promulgated in November 2015 (and still there), there has been other attacks since then, and every time there is a new one the president goes "yeah uhh, so last time it was the super state of emergency, let's now declare the super super state of emergency by adding a few cops and soldiers walking by the streets".

    WTF is wrong with Brianna Wu? She's been insufferable for a long while now, but this takes the cake.
    I'm glad that so many people in the replies are calling her out on her tactless ignorance.
    There are victims of all genders who never came home from this tragedy, and she's trying to step over their corpses to push her agenda.
    Honestly disgusting.

    This one's bad. If anyone has heard of Baylor University's ongoing football/sexual assault scandals, this just got a lot more disturbing.

    Spoiler:
    http://www.wacotrib.com/news/courts_...b07850249.html

    According to the suit, the football team had a system of hazing freshman recruits by having them bring freshman females to parties to be drugged and gang-raped, “or in the words of the football players, ‘trains’ would be run on the girls.”

    Considered a bonding experience by the players, according to the suit, the rapes also were photographed and videotaped, and the plaintiff confirmed that at least one 21-second videotape of two Baylor students being gang- raped by football players had circulated.

    The Baylor football program needs to be shut down, just like SMU in the 80's.

    Yeah you're right, my mistake. Labour's not in the lead but they've made good progress, especially considering Corbyn is getting attacked from the usual suspects from all angles. All I'm saying is that I hope the Tories won't use this horrendous tragedy to their advantage to smear the Labour party. It's not a conspiracy.

    Conspiracy is in your insinuation that the Tories bombed the concert.

    Stop trying to slander me. Of course it's apparent that it was a terrorist, are you out of your mind? How exactly am I insinuating the Tories themselves bombed a concert?

    You asked me how, and you did it with that post where you peppered it with "HOW VERY CONVENIENT HM HM".

    Also you have a history of being a conspiracy theorist.

    I think the reason Corbyn is failing is because he's a shitty politician and him and his closest advisors keep showing they're incompetent.

    All I'm saying is that it's convenient timing for an opportunity to be used to smear said party, and it worries me.

    I hate how often 'conspiracy theorist' is used to shut down anyone that doesn't share the same opinion, or if you don't look at things from the same angle instead of all angles.

    I apologized for my opinions in the past but please stop trying to berate me, I don't even know what I'm apologizing for anymore.

    What is the point of a discussion if you can't share opinions and your end goal is to shut people down. You too Kaiolino.
