    As a huge fan of Rafa, I don't like saying it, but its increasingly looking like Rafa is past it.

    “Prosperity just can’t be for CEOs and hedge fund managers. Democracy can’t be just for billionaires. Americans need a better deal.”

    Hmm, I wonder who the top donors over her career are.

    Well, what do you know! If it isn't the Wall Street!

    I wonder how many people seriously buy into the idea that after getting elected she would get the middle class Americans a "better deal" and not return some favors first.

    PS: Just for comparison, here's Bernie Sander's donors. If you look at the lost it's mostly Unions.

    Sorry I got the Qatar and Russia years mixed up in my earlier post. They were reverse. My bad.

    Warner’s successor as CONCACAF leader and FIFA vice president, Jeffery Webb of the Cayman Islands, was staying at the Baur au Lac this week. It was unclear if he was detained.

    Latest update is that Jeffrey Webb (FIFA VP) was in the 6 who got arrested. Also, the Swiss authorities are questioning 10 people about the 2018 and 2022 votes. Proceedings have also been opened regarding the 2018 and 2022 bid process.

    I will be so happy if Qatar gets stripped of 2018. Russia for 2022 was probably corrupt too so wouldn't mind seeing that go as well. But biggest prize would be putting that twat Blatter behind the bars.

    Kudos to America for doing something about the blatant and rampant corruption at FIFA which no other authority seemed willing to tackle. Since these 6 will be extradited to the USA, I hope they throw the book at the lot of them and more of the rotten FIFA. Reform is needed.

    Some people here remind me of Karl Rove. Hoping to see similar meltdowns as the one he had on Fox News when Obama won in 2012.

    Personally I'd be surprised if the Republicans even have a shouting chance in 2016. But then again, the US has a tendency to surprise. After all, we are talking about a country that elected George W. Bush twice.

    Either way, Hillary is also a corporate stooge. So not much is gonna change there. On the plus side, she might not start any new wars.

    Probably the best United have played all season. Clinical and ruthless. Mata, Herrera and Carrick in midfield were a treat to watch, and every player contributed. Great pressing, passing and movement. More of this against the Scousers please.

    Chelsea got what they deserved. Diego Costa has taken over the mantle of being the biggest twat on the pitch from Luis Suarez. Oscar acting like he got shot after the tackle and 9 Chelsea players surrounding the ref to get Ibrahimovich sent off was disgusting to watch. Losing to 10 men at the Bridge has got to sting, but given how lackluster Chelsea played (was Fabregas even on the pitch?) it was really not unexpected.

    I think Mr. Murai very correctly identifies the problem to be that Japan is overly obsessed with playing pretty football. They generally want neat, tidy football (few to no tcakles) with short passes and dominating possession. This is fairly evident by the amount of circle-jerk that is seen in the J-media about both Barcelona and Spain.

    The point he is making is that at the end of the day it is the results that matter. The Japanese team has demonstrated a total lack of grit, the ability to dig in and just see a game out. Pretty football is good up to a point, but it doesn't always win you games, as both Spain and Japan very painfully found out in the last WC. You need players who can break up play, who can put in a tackle even if it looks a bit ugly. Until Japan produces even higher skilled and technically gifted players, they should work on the mental fortitude of the players.

    I hope somebody puts their foot down and stops this embarrassment from happening. Japan will be a laughing stock if any of the 48 group performs in the Olympic opening ceremony.

    say they want to die as martyrs

    Death comes to everyone, sooner or later. But these 2 won't be martyrs. They are stupid cowards who believe that a book written 1300 years ago is the perfect word of an invisible creator deity, and who killed people for ridiculing this notion.

    There's a video footage of these terrorists shooting in the head at point blank range a policeman lying on the ground begging them not to kill him. It truly is appalling and heartbreaking. If this trend continues, people will et fed up of appeasement of extremist ideologies and the rise of the Far Right in Europe will become inevitable. Blind, ignorant and outdated belief systems need to be put in their place before it's too late. Also kudos to other media for showing solidarity with Charlie Hebdo.

    I also fear for my Muslim friend in France. I hope there is no angry backlash which results in indiscriminate violence against the innocent.

    I agree. As I said earlier, their violence does find justification in their religious texts. My understanding of Harris's point is that there are many Muslims who do not personally engage in violence (whether or not they support the idea of violence for the defense of their faith is another matter entirely). These moderate Muslims, and other liberals, then turn around and say - "See, we don't do violence. And hence, it's not religion that's the problem. What they are doing is not our religion." The fact remains that the extremist version of Islam is just as plausible an interpretation of their doctrine. There are passages in Hadith which say that its blasphemous to draw depictions of Muhammad. And these ideas have a large number of subscribers, some of whom further believe that blasphemy should be punishable by death. And as long as we do not accept and criticize that, there will be no change.

    I hope Ben Affleck and others like him now understand the argument that Sam Harris and Bill Maher were trying to make. Islam, like many other religions, has a bunch of ideas which are just dangerous and extremely outrageous which need to be discussed openly. While people like Affleck refuse to acknowledge that religious doctrine is a problem, radical extremists continue to target and kill people for something as simple as drawing a bunch of cartoons. This behavior of the extremists finds full justification in the religious texts, and our refusal to acknowledge this empowers and emboldens them.
