> Enter Trump, who has the temerity to point out that the party establishment says one thing but does another. He launched his campaign by calling the GOP’s bluff on immigration: If the 11 million people here without documents are really “illegal,” as the party loudly proclaims, then send them home.

The party of: slavery, succession from the union (the Confederacy), segregation, the KKK, denying women the vote, killing children one month from being born, not executing murders, making sure only criminals have guns, Japanese american internment camps, and giving non Americans more rights than citizens. Yep the Democrat Party. How could Trump be worse?
>>12478 Pretending the Democrat Party was not behind maintaining slavery and the horrors of discrimination against minorities long after other civilized countries outlawed it is just a sign of how effective the propaganda is. How does it feel to be defending your ignorance with "duh"??
So national geographic spent years and millions of dollars to film a giant squid, building a submarine and travelling hundreds of metres below the depths - only to have one to swim to the shores a couple years later, healthy and able to swim back to sea.

When I think of Lemmy, of course the first song is Ace of spades. But then I recall 1916. A look at war with soul of an artist. To Lemmy, a drink and a toast. He did what few men do, he truly lived. Prost!
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree Monday to dissolve the country’s Federal Space Agency Roscosmos. The responsibilities of the space agency will now be transferred to the Roscosmos state corporation, which was established earlier this year.
The Russian government will “ensure the continuity of transfer of the powers and functions of the abolished federal space agency to the state corporation for space activities,” the Kremlin said, in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The decision to liquidate the federal space agency and turn it into a state corporation was taken in January 2015. At the time, Igor Komarov, the CEO of United Rocket and Space Corporation -- a company established by Moscow in 2013 to renationalize the country’s space sector -- was appointed as the head of Roscosmos.

" TOKYO — Japan and South Korea said Monday they had “finally and irreversibly” resolved a dispute over wartime sex slaves that has bedeviled relations between the two countries for decades.
In something of a surprise development, the two countries’ foreign ministers met in Seoul to finalize a deal that will see Japan put $8.3 million into a South Korean fund to support the 46 surviving “comfort women” and to help them recover their “honor and dignity” and heal their “psychological wounds.”

So what do you guys expect this entails down the line? Closer ties economically and militarily? They have pretty similar interests, I think, and they both want to curb growing Chinese dominance. I think recent incursions into their territories is what spurred this agreement: Japan finally decided grandstanding wasn't worth it.
The only standing issue I can think of is that one island between SK and Japan, but I imagine that issue isn't that big and that they have other things they'd benefit from dealing with together, that have much more serious implications.
>>12221 I would hope Japan is prepared to back down from Dokdo with the Koreans agreeing to some sort of sharing of mineral rights, and support for Japan's Senkaku claims. If the rest of Asia wants to keep China in check, there needs to be much closer ties and cooperation than there is now.

But critics say PiS has a hardline agenda, similar to that of Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán. In its first weeks in government, PiS removed the provision of IVF under the national health system.
