Bush turned on the faucets of big money that can be earned from a World in constant turmoil and fear. The wars that administration started have proven to be money in the bank ever since. Don't look to the death of this cash cow anytime soon.

Imagine; Summit Meetings of world leaders RSVP such dress as mandatory to attend. The World would be much more a peaceful and fun place.

It borders on hilarity to hear various agents of the media (conservative and liberal), suggesting Canada's lazy tree hugger approach to security of Government facilities. Keep in mind, this coming from the very same media, AND government outlets, that recently as yesterday breeched the White House. Oh wait!... that guy was plotting preemptive logistics for the annual White House lawn Easter Egg hunt...

And in the between time... we're supposed to believe that air-dropped weapons 'accidentally' fell into the hands of IS militants. I was born at night... but not last night.

... there is little obvious that the WTO will do in impoverished countries to curtail smoking. Higher taxes are sure to find their way into member pockets of this humanitarian blood bank. Only a fool would trust the WTO'S motives. They move the profit source from here to there... and pat themselves on the bum in the process.

WTO frowns on stockpiling because it prevents them from price gouging in humanitarian emergencies. WTO is after all nothing more than a corporate entity... poorly disguised one at that.

Not complying to a cops request IS provocation. Non compliance is never an option. It's best to respond, and if your treated unjustly, get an attorney, file a proper complaint. To do otherwise seals the fate of all parties involved. The challenges outcome is both predictable, cannot be negotiated, and will be textbook. This outcome is applicable to all Colors.

@ theFu...This is like asking which color is better - red or green or black.
That depends... how dark is the black.
Vinyl rules hands down. Less compression, less manufactured sound... warmer. All of this adds to a listening experience that reveals the subtle and puts you in the creative human process. This of course has no application when listening to rap, as the obvious lack of creative talent in front of and behind the soundboard, is hypnotically hidden behind and under the monotone robotic bass thump which is interchangeable between any rap artist recordings and most of what today is mislabeled as R&B.
@Probie... If you need to Googleize which is superior... your exactly the non-discriminating target consumer for the generic dead-ear sounds being fed today.

@Wolfpack... Bringing Ebola to the West gives it far more attention=deeper investment=thanks for the political donations. Do you honestly believe this or any other administration cares what comes out of Africa besides profit? Money in the pocket overrides everything. Where are the sanctions against China? The West isn't interested in suffering or 'Demockracy' unless one spells it with currency.

..."Ten days later, he’d become the first person diagnosed in America with Ebola".
My opinion... Ebola virus successfully introduced in the U.S., with intention, in reciprocation to massive high level campaign donations to the American politicians as owned by Big Pharma. Proof?... The RUTERS news service reports in it's Financial page, the major boost this introduction has given STOCKS in this sector. Of particular interest, Michael Yee's (an analyst with RBC Capital Markets), report on the pharmaceutical company TEKMIRA. His upbeat profit from disaster report includes the following quote: "...TEKMIRA has already treated some patients in the U.S." This 'treatment' prompting an unusually fast tracked FDA response. My question; EXACTLY HOW LONG, where and on who, have these trials (implied sucessful) been going on in the U.S., as the first reports of an Ebola threat in the U.S. is DAYS old...
