On Tuesday, A Post

Much to discuss...

Who the hell gives clearance to a mentally ill violent person?

The Navy also gave Aaron Alexis, 34, an administrative sanction after he was arrested by civilian authorities in DeKalb County, Ga., in 2008 and held for two nights in jail, a Navy official said…
As for his motive, to the extent that someone who’s been hearing voices might have a coherent motive, the feds haven’t found one yet.

What the hell is wrong with people?

As a five-year-old boy withered away and died of starvation at the hands of his grandparents, his aunt — who lived under the same roof — says she didn't notice his alarming condition because she "didn't pay that much attention."

Doctors have compared Jeffrey Baldwin's emaciated frame when he died to that of an African famine victim and have said that anyone who saw Jeffrey, especially in the last months of his life, would have known he was in dire need of help.

But Tammy Kidman told the coroner's inquest into Jeffrey's death that she believed her mother Elva Bottineau, Jeffrey's grandmother, when she said doctors had checked Jeffrey out and pronounced him healthy.
How do you not know or care that your nephew is being starved to death?

This goes on ALL the time:

Had she known that she would become an unpaid domestic servant in Canada, she would never have come overseas, an African woman told a human trafficking trial on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old from Tanzania, who cannot be named under a publication ban, said she was forced to do everything from cleaning bathrooms and polishing floors, to serving meals and washing cars when she worked — without pay — for 60-year-old Mumtaz Ladha.

The wealthy West Vancouver woman in on trial accused of four human trafficking-related charges.

Are we that desperate for slave labour?

Remember- in 2008, Obama promised to meet Iran without pre-conditions. Case in point:

Iran's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that President Hassan Rouhani had exchanged letters with U.S. President Barack Obama, confirming direct communication between the leaders of the two countries.

The United States and Iran cut off formal diplomatic ties in 1980, shortly after students and Islamic militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took American diplomats hostage.

But officials from both countries have said they are open to direct talks in order to find a diplomatic solution to a decade-long dispute over Iran's nuclear programme, over which the West has imposed economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
Keeping in mind the "success" he's had with Syria, I would give this a miss.

World War Three in five, four...

Related: Obama plans a trip to Asia, hoping that the inhabitants haven't heard of his disastrous foreign policies:

President Barack Obama will attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Indonesia next month where he will also host a meeting of leaders of Trans-Pacific Partnership countries. 

Obama will travel from Oct. 6 to Oct 12. and will also meet Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Indonesia’s President, according to a White House statement yesterday. Obama will go to Brunei for the U.S.-Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit and the East Asia Summit and will meet with the Sultan of Brunei. He will discuss energy, maritime security, investment, development and trade promotion, according to the statement. 

U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with his Malaysian counterpart Prime Minister Najib Razak and also give a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit. 

The U.S. president will meet with his Malaysian counterpart Prime Minister Najib Razak and also give a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit. Obama will then travel to the Philippines to meet with President Benigno Aquino.

Note he is starting with the Muslim-heavy nations.

Margaret Trudeau warns against heavy drug use which goes unheeded by her son:

Margaret Sinclair Trudeau Kemper has spoken openly, and positively about smoking weed habitually for years - even while her husband, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, was prime minister. In 2006, she made her struggle with bipolar disorder public, and last summer talked with reporters about how smoking too much made her condition worse.

"Marijuana can trigger psychosis," she said. "Every time I was hospitalized it was preceded by heavy use of marijuana."

Today, her son wants the job his father once had.

Justin Trudeau has said he's not going to spend the lead-up to the next election getting bogged down with policy ideas, but has put forth his firm belief the Conservative government has launched a war on marijuana and his intention to legalize the drug.

My God, your mum knows what of she speaks, Justin. Pay attention!

And now- Best. Wedding Photos. Ever.
