    Default Another Day ...

    ...another slaughter of innocents.

    But let's not call it "Islamic Extremism", that's highly offensive.

    We'll PC ourselves right out of existence some day.

    Hadn't heard, has anyone taken responsibility or was the one chap all alone?

    ISIS has taken responsibility, but apparently there is no real proof they were behind this.
    However, if it were true, than they have a serious issue with advanced terror cells in the UK because of past terrorist attacks in the UK.

    Problems will arise when one cannot identify one's enemies. It is not cricket when they do not subscribe to the rules of war according to the Geneva Convention.

    Geneva convention does not directly apply, since this is not a war. This is terrorism.

    They keep coming because they think the real terrorists use high tech weapons to kill their children.

    I'm not a fan of the UN, either, Barry.

    Glad we see eye to eye here, buddy

    Yet without the U.N. to hide behind how would the U.S. or any other country for that matter hide their more nefarious dealings. The U.N. is a wonderful guise under which to operate, is it not?

    The US can't hide behind the UN, it's too large

    Republicans always deflect on Facebook, too.

    Ah well.

    It is said that 90 percent of terror attacks in the USA are from non-muslims.

    I expect no intelligent response.

    I am proud that Republicans deflect crap on FB, shows good character!

    It is said that 90 percent of terror attacks in the USA are from non-muslims.

    Source? Link?

    I expect no intelligent response.

    You shouldn't expect one, when your premise starts with "It is said"

    We're all adults here. Let's provide more than "it is said" as a source if we want to further the conversation.

    And if your numbers do indeed prove correct, then I guess we can wave off the inane suggestion that the foreign policy of the USA has created modern terrorism, for it seems they are hitting European targets at a higher rate.

    Methinks you're stuck between a rock and a hard place here, Mr. Morris

    First, that shows just how tasteless and out of touch the Hollywood Left is.

    Second, Trump still looks better than her in that picture, and that is just sad for her.

    I suppose I'd be very angry, too, if I were that homely.

    At least 2 people thought this was a good idea. That's depressing.

    Awwww, seems the lovely and talented comedienne lost a gig

    CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their annual New Year’s Eve program, which she cohosted with anchor Anderson Cooper.

    For a C-lister like her, CNN was the top...'tis a shame,a real shame

    Her "humour" was tasteless but that is the state of humour today. When would be stars go political it tends to run off the tracks at one point or another. I find the furore raised by this interesting yet when Obama was burned in effigy, shown hanging from a tree and such that was alright. It would seem humour is truly subjective.

    Hollywood is hypocritical. Just because they apologize and pretend to be furious over it, they really don't care. They have a wholesome, public image to portray.
