...urgent request for lethal aid to fight Russian-backed separatists.
Interesting... would those guys be in the same class as 'moderate rebles' in Syria that the same U.S. administration is giving weapons to?

@turbotsat... GOP was all set to elect African-American candidate Herman Cain. He was polling good until women started accusing him of past sexual harassment.
And it isn't the singular sexual harassment issue that should have been at the core. That's an acceptable part of the de-evolutionary process. His potential to win voters over is what's frightening!! If that near miss didn't prove that there is something seriously wrong with the qualification process... I'm the ruler of Brickabrackistan.
Hillary for President?... money can't buy you Love... but it will buy an office for the corporate owned politician.

There is a political agenda... and the true agenda... which is corporate. Politicians without exception are owned slaves to the machines that donate and create political careers. Don't fall for this media generated paranoia as displayed and supported in so many of these comments. Live your life to it's fullest... let your agenda be to make someone smile with an act of kindness and compassion... free of what society with it's personality driven cult dictates.

In my third Mazda... First being '05 6 sport-wagon that never required service other than routine... and never stopped lookin' good... 5door 3 that was t-bone drivers side crashed total... left me sore for for months yet eternally grateful for the safety engineering bred into the vehicle. Went to another brand (must have scrambled my brain more than originally thought), longing for the craftsmanship and driving joy of my Mazda's... since have returned to the Mazda family of enthusiasts in a '14 6 Sport sedan. LOVE IT!!! Please send the new Sport Wagon back to the West soon... at least one for me.

@Spanki... Agree 100%. It sounds like the culture is becoming more and more Westernized where annoyances of the few are appeased to the detriment of the many... while @zichi... it's a park, its a playground. Nothing is sweeter than joy and laughter of children. If anything should be banned in such a public gathering, it's those attention deficit idiots that bring a drum or horns to sporting events, convinced that competition would be less enjoyable without them. And if any sign should be posted in a park or play... it ought to read: Have fun at your own Risk. Peace.

China will do business with everyone no matter how high the bodies are stacked up. We have to have some sort of world standard for human rights.

Okay JTD... your (10) sort of redeemed by clarifying that listing error. If on the other hand, yabits, comment refers to the Doors over rated rating as nonsensical and (they) responsible for introducing 'punk' into lexicon... add that the WHO would and should be closer attributed to that genre (punk) birth... and the Doors remain over rated and vanilla at best.

@ JTDan Man... Fleetwood Mac???... not rock... The Doors???... over rated... stick to top ten lists. Love and respect Mr. Scorsese, and his work. I have a difficult time believing that he never (as claimed) had seen the original version of The Departed. I can understand how two artists can grab and materialize similar ideas, however in comparing these two versions of The Departed...

Let's not address smokescreens over the issue. This is about puppet politicians, money to keep them where they are, and waterfront property. It's that simple. The West will never do anything that would choke the flow of campaign finance. Slavery in the US remains very much alive with it's political body owned by Israeli corporate interests that finance personal campaign.
