>Being born drug-dependent didn’t kill these children. Each recovered enough to be discharged from the hospital. What sealed their fates was being sent home to families ill-equipped to care for them.
>Like Brayden, more than 40 of the children suffocated. Thirteen died after swallowing toxic doses of methadone, heroin, oxycodone or other opioids. In one case, a baby in Oklahoma died after her mother, high on methamphetamine and opioids, put the 10-day-old girl in a washing machine with a load of dirty laundry.

Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (CNE) has released the preliminary but “irreversible” results of the country’s National Assembly elections.
In the early hours of this Monday morning, Tibisay Lucena, the President of the CNE, congratulated the Venezuelan people on its impressive “demonstration of civility” before announcing that the Venezuelan opposition coalition, the Roundtable of Democratic Unity (MUD), had swept to victory in the Venezuelan legislative elections.
According to Lucena, the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) has so far gained just 46 seats in parliament while their political opponents, the MUD, have gained 99 out of a total of 167 - according to the most recent count. Twenty-two seats are yet to be announced, including three representatives for the country’s indigenous population.
Maduro lost the elections, the opposition didn't win it. The Opposition still have no viable plan for Venezuela apart from hand over the country to the Koch Brothers and centralize all power and money into the inner suburbs of Caracas.
The PSUV have basically sat on their thumb up their ass since Saudi Arabia crashed oil prices. There should have been massive government stimulus programs to diversify the economy away from just oil but there was none of that.
Also I think this is interesting as it shows how western imperialism... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Oil rents, populist blowhards, provoking the US in the western hemisphere, and Nigerian-tier economic management, any one of these is enough to kill a state. My advice to MUD would be to immediately lead off with all necessary cuts and layoffs, and to go further before shorter. You have the mandate and it's expected. Down the line recapitalize the best of the worst programs and personal, but under no circumstances draw out the purges over months.
>“Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air," said Bill Shine, Fox senior executive vice president. "Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”

VIDEO "Leytonstone Terror Attack (FULL): The Religion of Peace Strikes Again" In response to #YouAintNoMuslimBruv

"On December 5, an act of terror occurred at Leytonstone tube station in East London, UK. As people were coming home from Christmas shopping on Saturday evening, a man wielding a machete slit the throat of an innocent bystander and injured two others. Some witnesses feared the terrorist intended to behead the man. As the 29 year old alleged Muslim man... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

"The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry for his continued, unrepentant hate speech and unacceptable behaviour. His unacceptable behaviour is well documented, and we feel it foments racial, religious and nationalistic intolerance which should not be welcome in the UK. The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. This same principle should apply to Donald J Trump. We cannot see how the United Kingdom can condone his entry to the country when many people have been barred for less."
Furthermore, some British politicians like Scottish National Party defense head Brendan O’Hara are attempting to have Trump’s access to nuclear weapons preemptively curtailed should he win the Republican nomination for 2016.
And yet tons of videos get taken down thanks to BS copyright claims.
Thoughts? I'm pretty conflicted on this. On one hand, this is pretty fucked up. Even if no one was physically hurt, this shit could scar a person for life. On the other hand, free speech is free speech.

The Shiites seem to want Iraq and Syria to devolve into Stans and fear what a coherent and united Sunni-stan would mean for Assad and Iran. To that end they're inclined to want ISIS to stay strong, active internationally, and contained regionally.
