Aye, in Amrika all the time.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

So much for Ronda Rousey...

Exactly. She's instantly a nobody.

I'd vaguely heard of her beforehand. Some sort of wrestler or something?

Olympic judoka turned MMA champion, she had gone unbeaten in MMA until now, but most of he  opponents were frankly quite crap so it's not saying much.

Sorry, was halfway through a reply to this when I fell asleep.


Basically, yes, the Saudis are armadillobags, bear a lot of responsibility for the horrendous state of some parts of the Middle East, and we need to be prepared to actually disagree with them a lot more often. I'm not sure we can force them to take responsibility for refugees, and I certainly don't think the fact that they're being arseholes means that we should, but it would be nice if we at least pressured them to use their ridiculous array of military hardware in fighting IS. Or just doing something. With allies like them we barely need enemies.

I expect I'm being stoopid there but it usually seems to me that the war on terrorism would probably have gone better if we'd invaded SA instead of iraq. Obviously invading no one would have been best but hey ho.

Barama spent over 3 million on personal holidays this year. Hint: he didn't pay for it himself.

This is why we should all be run by that guy from Uruguay. :P

Can't remember if there's already a thread on cop shootings so I'll share this here thing that popped up on the Facebook here
http://www.copblock.org/149061/dui-shooting/
Looks like attempted murder to me, but apparently American police are now so badly trained they manage to accidentally shoot people who are posing no threat. Also looks like two shots are fired in that video to my untrained eye.
