As excited as I am about the discovery of liquid water on Mars, I still can't help wondering... will the first humans on Mars be a bunch of Nestlé workers with a big drilling rig?
After all, let's not forget that the CEO of Nestlé thinks that water isn't a human right, and should be privatized.

After a brief pause out of respect for the photogenic drowned refugee child, the EU member governments resumed their program of making Syrian war refugees as miserable as possible. Hungary, of course, is keeping to the high standards set by the infamous TV camerawoman by sending police to brutalize refugees. And needless to say, like Claude Rains in Casablanca, the United Nations is shocked -- shocked -- to discover that Hungary is treating war refugees like dirt.

Y'know, I've seen mainstream media types pull some pretty lowdown stuff in my day. I've heard Chris Matthews telling the antiwar movement it should apologize. I've heard Bill O'Reilly call the Black Lives Matter movement "terrorists". I've heard a CNN anchordroid acting disappointed at the absence of violence at the premiere of Straight Outta Compton. But I've never seen something as rock-bottom piss-poor as the Hungarian TV camerawoman sticking her leg out to trip a Syrian war refugee trying to flee the Roeszke detention camp.
What's especially sad about this, though, is that the camerawoman's behavior pretty much encapsulates the current policies and attitudes of most EU member states.

I was just checking out this short article in The Hill today about Pwogwessive hero Bernie Sanders and his declaration that he wouldn't end the US drone warfare program. Can somebody please tell me again why I should so much as lift a finger to support this brazen hypocrite? Check this out:
“I think we have to use drones very, very selectively and effectively. That has not always been the case,” Sanders said.No shit, Sherlock. Christ, is this clown really the Great Progressive Hope? Are you friggin' kidding me, man?
“What you can argue is that there are times and places where drone attacks have been effective,” he added.Oh, yeah, especially against weddings, funerals and schools. Now we know why Bernie doesn't spend much time discussing foreign policy, and prefers to keep beating the shit out of that old economic inequality riff. If Pwogwessive America found out too much too soon, they'd bolt the Donkeycratic Party and run like the place was on fire.
Basically, what we're got here is a warmed-over Obama, with the economic inequality rhetoric dialed up a notch or two for all the gullible bougie pwogwessives. Dude had to be dragged kicking and screaming into addressing the ongoing police reign of terror against Black America, and he'd probably still be ignoring the issue if #BlackLivesMatter hadn't publicly gotten all up in his shit about it.
This doorknob needs to stop referring to his sheepdog campaign as a goddamn' "revolution". It's really offensive.

For my readers in the US: the ongoing wave of "You Stink" protests in Lebanon isn't just about the trash not being picked up. It's about favoritism, corruption, greed, and incompetence.
