    The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force is not an official government organization. It's just another animal rights organization. This time, they have lied about the death of Jericho the lion. I suspect that the ZCTF has previously lied about the dentist knowing that the lion hunt had been illegal before he had discovered the tracking collar.

    praack - actually this does nothing for the USA, except allow for cuban cigars to come in legally

    The U.S.A. doesn't even gain the benefit of Cuban cigars. Cuban tobacco plants have been grown for decades in many countries with similar soil and climate. I understand that Cuba gains a lot in this deal, but I have no idea benefits the U.S.A. receives?

    Elizabeth Heath - They are homeless, it's either this or the streets. You can't blame them for staying put in the hotel, even though they had no money.

    They are thieves who have stolen money and services from the hotel. Yes, you could blame them.

    “I emphasized that the total lifting of the blockade, the return of illegally occupied territory of Guantanamo as well as full respect for Cuban sovereignty and compensation to our people for human and economic damages are crucial to be able to move toward the normalization of relations,” Rodriguez said as Kerry stood beside him.

    It looks like Obama and Kerry have finally found a way to close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp and release the terrorists being held there.

    As far as I know, when the U.S. and Cuba signed the Cuban–American Treaty of 1903, Cuba agreed to lease the land for its use as a U.S. naval base, and the U.S. agreed to pay for the lease of that land for as long as the naval base was required.

    DaDude - Wait so Johnny Depp gets in trouble before and was forced to send his dogs back home. So his wife decides to give it a second try? So is she trying to make a point, show her arrogance or just plain stupid?

    It seems that it was Amber Heard who illegally brought the dogs to Australia, and she falsified the document(s). I'll pick arrogance AND just plain stupid.

    I had no idea who Ariana Grande was until it became public knowledge that Grande had been caught by several survelience cameras, acting like a pig in public. Who would ever think it was a good idea to lick other peoples food? She's 22 years old and apparently too stupid to understand basic health concerns.

    It appears that Grande just can't stop lying. She didn't apologise for licking the donuts. She apologised for not knowing there were security cameras in the shop that would record her actions. Why was she in a donut shop? According to reports, it was to buy six donuts. Now she claims she was fighting obesity. Fighting obesity by licking other peoples food? No one knows where Grande's mouth has been. Is it her intention to fight obesity by make other people sick?

    Police, and public health officials, are investigating the incident. Health codes say that foodstuffs like donuts, sandwiches, etc. should be covered, or behind glass, while on display. The donut shop will probably be subjected to a fine, and have it's health code rating lowered.

    Ariana Grande's rating as a thinking human being has also been lowered.

    Black Sabbath - Thanks. For the entire interview, see here:

    http://thewire.in/2015/07/08/thomas-piketty-germany-has-never-repaid-its-debts-it-has-no-right-to-lecture-greece/

    Piketty is only considered influential by socialist economists like himself. Even the economists of his own country, France, believe that Greece should make more of an effort to pay, or prepare to pay, back it's massive debts. The money will be made available, IF Greece makes more of an effort to get it's financial house in order.

    Since his successful book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, the Frenchman Thomas Piketty has been considered one of the most influential economists in the world. His argument for the redistribution of income and wealth launched a worldwide discussion.

    .....DIE ZEIT: Should we Germans be happy that even the French government is aligned with the German dogma of austerity?

    Thomas Piketty: Absolutely not. This is neither a reason for France, nor Germany, and especially not for Europe, to be happy. I am much more afraid that the conservatives, especially in Germany, are about to destroy Europe and the European idea.....

    .....Piketty: Nonsense! This had nothing to do with moral clarity; it was a rational political and economic decision. They correctly recognized that, after large crises that created huge debt loads, at some point people need to look toward the future. We cannot demand that new generations must pay for decades for the mistakes of their parents.

    The Greeks have, without a doubt, made big mistakes. Until 2009, the government in Athens forged its books.

    But despite this, the younger generation of Greeks carries no more responsibility for the mistakes of its elders than the younger generation of Germans did in the 1950s and 1960s. We need to look ahead. Europe was founded on debt forgiveness and investment in the future. Not on the idea of endless penance. We need to remember this.

    It seems that Piketty, as well as the Greek government, believe that Greeks should bear little responsibility for it's mistakes, and they shouldn't be held responsible for cleaning up their own financial disaster. They just want more money from the EU taxpayers.

    Hollywood makes movies in order to make money. Hollywood will chose the actors/actresses that will draw the most movie-goers, and video buyers. Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep can form their OWN production companies, cast anyone they wish, and hope their company makes a profit. I wish them the best of luck.

    kcjapan - "The Confederate battle flag is, at its core, a symbol of white supremacy rooted in antebellum slavery." - Peniel E Joseph, Reuters

    That's an interesting statement but it seems that Peniel E Joseph is talking about the wrong flag.

    Re-enactors are quick to note that the rectangular “rebel flag”, embraced by hate groups and displayed by Dylann Roof, the man accused in the South Carolina church shootings, in pictures he posted on the internet, was not one of the Confederacy’s three official flags, but instead a Confederate navy banner and the flag of the army of Tennessee.

    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jun/28/confederate-flag-civil-war-re-enactors

    The flag currently flying over the capital and monuments was never a flag that represented the CSA. This is so very confusing.

    The protestors do not seem to understand that the flag that they are protesting was never a flag of the government of the Confederate States of America (CSA).

    It was a battle flag. It also appeared as a battle ensign. Not a government flag but a military flag.

    Wc626 - Yes. As long as they're US citizens. As long as they have no criminal past, verified and cleared by NCIS and their state.

    NCIS? Are you referring to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service? The NCIS mission is to investigate and defeat criminal, terrorist, and foreign intelligence threats to the United States Navy and Marine Corps-ashore, afloat, and in cyberspace.

    Simba British Blue - I think Sea Shepherd should work hard to get an international ban on all whaling without any exception.

    Even Greenpeace refuses to be associated with the eco-terrorist SS. The eco-terrorist SS have been banned from the IWC, many nations have refused to register eco-terrorist SS vessels, and the eco-terrorist SS brags that they have sunk 10 vessels of various countries (11 if you count their own Ady Gil). The eco-terrorist SS long history of violence precludes their ability of forming an international anything. Except for an INTERPOL red notice.

    zichi - Since the outcome of the court cast it said they would not use personal donations which are to fund the various campaigns.

    The eco-terrorist SS runs on donations. Donations from people who believe in the eco-terrorism SS acts of violence. If the eco-terrorist SS choses not to pay the fine, the U.S. court can seize their assets. Maybe they'll start with that brand new garbage scow some people have been talking about?

    zichi - The SS have stated it won't be paid for from donations and will use other funds for it. This year the SS received millions from the Dutch Postcode Lottery.....

    LOL. The eco-terrorist SS received a "donation" from the Dutch Lottery. It looks like the eco-terrorist SS lied (again?) when they stated the fine wouldn't be paid from donations.

    Joanne Reynolds - I will never visit a marine park, and yes I do speak out to help these animals and donate to Sea Shephard.

    Oh well, less crowded dolphin viewing for me, I guess. Thanks to the U.S. Ninth Circuit court's ruling, future donations to the eco-terrorists SS will be sent to the Institute of Cetacean Research and Kyodo Senpaku.

    JeffLee - OR they made the fatal mistake of assuming that Rumsfeld and the others had a clue about what they were doing.

    A bipartisan group consisting of four high ranking members of the U.S. Congress are briefed by the CIA on a regular basis. Democrats, and Republicans, were aware of the intelligence being fed to Rumsfeld, and Bush.

    If the Democrats made the fatal mistake of assuming, or preferred to remain ignorant of the available intelligence, that certainly wouldn't enhance their image as actual elected leaders of the U.S.A..

    Democrats voted for it before they decided it was politically expedient to be against it.

    Hooray! The eco-terrorist SS are being penalized $2.55 million for breaching a U.S. court injunction to stay clear of Japanese whaling vessels in the Antarctic Ocean. Plus, they have to pay for two years of failed litigation. And every dollar is coming out of the pockets of those eco-terrorist SS supporters who believe that violence is the answer.

    Iraqi security forces lost/abandoned/donated 2,300 Humvee armoured vehicles to ISIS. Plus other heavy armored vehicles, and weapons. What an incredibile fighting force the Iraqi security forces have turned out to be.

    Plus, WOW - Senate Democratic votes for the Iraq War:

    YEAs — 77 Bayh (D-IN), Biden (D-DE), Breaux (D-LA), Cantwell (D-WA), Carnahan (D-MO), Carper (D-DE), Cleland (D-GA),

    That's a lot of Democrats who were in favor of the war before they remembered it could be politically advantageous to be against it.

    FIFA President Sepp Blatter should step down. This "alleged" corruption has been going on during Blatter's 4 terms as President. If he doesn't consider himself responsible for the actions of those around him, of what use is he? Blatter can quit, or the members can elect Prince Ali bin Al Hussein of Jordan, or the FIFA leadership can go back to taking bribes as usual. Time will tell.
