When people say "Why are Hamas firing rockets at the Israelis" this is why ............

Not to mention the constant bullying by the army and police on citizens and ousting people from their homes, fact is Israel lied, they always spoke of peace while there is a Gov't doctrine to take the entire land and they've basically done it now, its called invasion and people who question the Palestinians are not worth listening to because your basically denying them the right of self defense.

Its funny how when big Gov'ts invade another country or state, their media makes the victims "terrorists" and we all just accept that label.

No doubt the Israelis are the terrorists here but you won't hear a word against them from the media cos they aren't Muslim.

In other news, another shooting in USA. This time in San Jose California. Wonder who had that in the sweepstakes

Shooter amongst the many fatalities apparently. Not yet known if it's a Muslim terrorist or a mentally challenged white guy

Bezos stepping down as Amazon CEO.

I wonder if Elon Musk will eventually surpass his net worth now?

Still owns the thing.

He's just handing the running of it off to some other guy.

I mean why work when your the richest man in the world? he can wake up in the morning and do whatever he wants, buy whatever he wants, go wherever he wants.

Amazon literally runs on auto pilot now, instead of board meetings he should be out there living the dream.

I mean, just imagine having that much money, he's almost got too much to even enjoy it.

If Bezos spent $100 every second of every day (that's $360,000 an hour) it would take him nearly 70 years to spend his net worth.

A man has been stabbed to death in broad daylight in Islington after reportedly trying to stop a mugging.

Police were called to Essex Road at 5.30pm on Saturday where they found the man, aged in his 50s, with stab wounds.

The victim was treated by paramedics but he was pronounced dead at 17:58pm.

Residents said the man was a local flower seller who was trying to stop a mugging when he was stabbed.

Police said his family has been informed.

Meh.

If you think that's bad, logically, this happens almost daily, definitely weekly in London all year round, this one just made the headlines.

This is why when I was at school in London I used to travel to college with an iron pipe and a commando knife in my school bag.

I'll make it clear though, it was for self defence only.

Fact is I felt I had to, there had been many occasions before where I'd get caught up in situations growing up in the streets of Hackeny and by that age I wasn't looking to be some victim or statistic.

Sad state of affairs, where I moved to back to my home town we settle disagreements with our fists, you can get hurt sure but its fair and you go home afterward, no reason to take someones life or ruin your own.

Each to their own I guess.

When I look back on it now, kids shouldn't feel they have to go to school armed, but that was life at the time unfortunately and the above article is exactly the reason why.

A despicable act of terrorism. This has made me so angry.

What kind of life will the sole 9 year old survivor have knowing his whole family were killed by evil?

And so it begins. A transgender athlete is allowed to compete in weightlifting in the Olympics. If I were a competing female athlete I would refuse to compete and hope that others would follow me.

That is cheating in my book. Having a biological man competing against women is wrong in my opinion.

Couldn't give a sht, not going to affect me.

Women need to stand up for themselves for fk sake, only they can make a difference here.

Stop looking to men to fix everything for them while they let us get pot shotted to death with Transphobe accusations ................. start protesting against it yourselves, either that or shut up and put up with it.

Women always want to cozy up to the tree hugger types, well now they're being devoured by them, funny thing is they're being fked over by men again, only this time by men who wear skirts.

The irony is fkin hillarious.
