Wow your ignorance is astounding. Go read the facts about her mental status, prior issues with the police, how she opened fire first, how the cops called her parents to help negotiate, gave her 6 hours, let her boyfriend run out with an infant so they wouldn't get hurt etc.... and the cherry on the shit-sundae is she used her own son as a shield.
Ok so she has a son
If only she had put the shotgun in her mouth instead, at least she would have won a darwin award. Instead she wins the worst parent of the year award.
Darwin awards require someone to die with no offspring....
Or appointing governments to run countries that are not elected by the people.
Can you give an actual, real-world example for the EU appointing some country's government?
Well to be fair he may be referring to the disgraceful way Greek democracy was subverted.
The fact that most pro-EU remain voters after the referendum reacted with predictable "well that vote didn't count" or "let's have a do over!" should have come as no surprise to anyone.
Yeah... except that the petition for a do-over was opened by a pro-Leave voter and opened BEFORE the referendum. But why should facts matter, right?
That whole petition thing was frankly daft. One thing a democratic country can't start doing is catering for those who can't be bothered to get their finger out and make their opinion count. Personally I'm all for compulsory voting- of course if in any voting situation nothing that was on offer worked for you then spoiling your ballot paper is to be encouraged.
If everyone wanted that a majority of the population would not have voted to leave.
Um... you're assuming that everyone was fully informed and aware of all the consequences while voting. But we heard enough voices of people who voted leave and then started to realize what benefits they're getting from the EU that they might lose. People change their mind all the time.
Yes indeed. Rather annoyingly the remain campaign missed the mark by miles, frankly because they didn't want to make the Houses of Parliament to look bad. This was a case of What has brussels ever done for us;
"A Remain vote would be for the status quo, not very good but at least you know where you are"
Economically at least the status quo was looking pretty good actually.
Historically continuousy very low inflation, Historically highest ever employment in actual numbers and very high percentage, and very stable healthy growth in overall standards of living.
The 'problems' blamed on the 'foreigners' are, in fact, self inflicted
High rents due to a completely unbalanced and unfair private rental system and the continued destruction of social housing, low levels of democratic accountability in Westminster due to a voting system rigged to support the establishment (and yes, this includes UKIP not getting any real representation in the houses of parliament), and immigration due to people wanting to come and *work* here despite the lack of housing options thanks to the economy. as above.
As a 'remainer' I seriously didn't want this course of events.
Now however it seems to me that our best bet would be to join the EEA (which is basically 'Soft Brexit'), since this gets us out of the customs union. It'll also minimise the damage overall. This means renegotiating all the curent EU trade deals again, so thats rather alot of work to do in any case.
The only silver lining to this would be the ability to negotiate trade deals where the EU feared to tread. Whether this would be affective, and not disastrous, does depend on the agendas of the UK negotiators. With Liam Fox in charge of this process I am NOT confident. He'll be doing deals for the benefit of his corporate chums, not the UK as a whole.
Full USAian TTIP with the ISCS supranational secret court screwing UK small business and industry as well as UK people is a nightmare waiting to happen. We'll see a depression like the worst in the US Rust belt. (This was due to unrestricted globalisation with no thought paid to the damage it would do to those businesses and people in the Rust belt, and no mitigation in place to help).
"Why is America just now getting into this?"
Because Europes experience proved that Chip-n-Pin was a whole less about security and a lot more about successfully and massively reducing fraud which harms consumers retailers and banks. Eventually after several nonsense stories and no public outcries revealing that Chip-n-Pin reduced fraud massively as touted they (who "they"?) were forced to finish reducing fraud . In the US they're playing it a bit differently attempting to redirect liability onto businesses and of course i will cite my source for this when asked...(who will in turn pad their sales to redirect their losses onto consumers in the end).
There, fixed that for you from someone who actually lived through the transition in Europe. You're welcome.
America is a higher trust society than Europe
(so the extra security wasn't cost-effective)
can you back that up with a cite please?
I think it's because we all speak the same language
yes, universal Spanish, no wait English, no wait Portuguese. hmmm methinks that last bit is just not true
and don't have to deal with gypsys here.
Yes because the good old USA no minorities it demonizes, amirite?
The whole article just smacks of fear of change frankly. We in the 21st century part of the Western hemisphere have long since done this, and reaped the fraud prevention benefits (read: no significant retail chip and pin fraud, fraudsters forced to try Cardholder not Present fraud, to which there are also pretty effective countermeasures).
I suspect those retailers still asking for magswipe will be transitioned to chip usage by their card service provider as the fraudsters will increasingly target those that still insist on swipe. The money will talk in this case, however the idea of chip and sign is a bit silly in that it will only stop coounterfeit cards, not stolen cards.
With the difference in speed the car would have incidentally either detected the rear wheels of the trailer and braked, or indeed missed the trailer entirely to it's rear. It's this thing about speed, you know, the faster an object is going, the less distance the object would cover in a given time frame...
So now you tell me personally what I want eh?
Thanks for informing me, I clearly didn't know what I wanted before...
I do love how random commentators, particularly anonymous ones, love telling people what everyone else is purported to want.
Why is this ot nonsense getting upvoted nowadays?
