Russia smuggles 400 kg of flour into Moscow under diplomatic immunity

Don't be such a schmuck I didn't even know who Jeremy Corbyn was until you mentioned his name. From what I learned from wiki he seems like a good man. He opposes Brexit meaning he has a brain and does not suffer inflated hubris present in most Brits.
Incidentally, I posted the article from the Telegraph because the identical article in "Newsweek" was acting erratically on my comp.
Have a nice day DB.

Report card for Trump on Manufacturing Job repatriation = FAIL

What most people aren't aware of, is this modern phenomenon of manufacturing job loss, goes back to the total defeat of Japan at the end of WW2. Western manufacturers, mostly from the USA saw a "golden" opportunity to capitalize on the abundance of extremely cheap labor bordering on slavery, that was readily available in Japan and surroundings. The ink wasn't even dry yet on the surrender documents on September 2, 1945 aboard the battleship U.S.S. Missouri, that Business tycoons leaped at the chance to drastically cut costs by shipping raw materials to these places and have their products built and assembled there, instead of hiring expensive, unionized, domestic labor. Shipping costs, while a factor, paled in comparison to the savings in labor costs. It was a simple cost/benefit analysis which said it was worth it to ship material halfway around the world and back again. This alone led to the post war economic boom of the late 40's and 50's and 60's.
The claim that Trump made, that he was going to bring all these lost jobs back to America, fly's in the face of anyone who has even the most basic education in economics (or common sense). A person who is unemployed with a bunch of hungry mouths to feed will jump at any "Pie In The Sky" promise made by a politician or con artist trying to get elected to office and vote for him and this is exactly how this phony conned his way into the White House.
This video pretty well sums up what millions of people in 100's of small towns across the heart of America felt and they snatched at any little bit of hope that was offered to them to fix their broken towns economy.



Charity begins at home and I don't know anybody who would willingly spend 3-5 times the cost of anything just to help Trump keep his impossible campaign claim.

RE: What A Waste Of Food!

Many people on here have a lot of nasty things to say about America, but what you describe doesn't happen in this country. The way bread products, which are at, or very near their expiration dates are handled on this side of the globe is the bread delivery driver will pick up these expired products and return them to the warehouse where they will be sold at steep discounts in what are called "Outlet" stores which are attached to the warehouse. You can buy these products which are still fit for human consumption and you can even get bulk products in very large quantities for mere pennies on the dollar for feeding to livestock like chickens. I know this because I have been buying bulk bakery products for my chickens for years. I can fill up a stand up freezer for less than 10 US$. That's at least 50-75 loaves of bread. I haven't bought a loaf of bread at a supermarket for at least 5 years. Don't believe me?

RE: Scammers

"There are none so blind as those who will not see."

What your friend is unaware of, is, he is aiding the scammers by richly rewarding them for their efforts. You've done about all you could do to save this old fool from himself. At 74 he probably couldn't even satisfy a 44 year old woman at the peak of her sex drive. If I were you I would distance myself from this guy or he'll probably blame you for losing everything when the day comes that he comes face to face with the truth. You might want to mention to him that Abidjan is only about 75 miles from Ghana, the world capital of the scam industry. Who he thinks is a hot female who fell in love with him is most likely a teenage African boy sitting in an internet cafe with a bunch of his friends who are laughing at all the sweet things your friend is posting to this "girl".

Your friend actually took out loans to send to this scammer in W. Africa? OMG!doh

RE: Justice must be served

MANILA (Reuters) - Bulldozers and backhoes pounded more than two dozen seized luxury cars in the Philippines on Tuesday, including Porsches, Mercedes, Jaguars and Corvettes, in a dramatic demolition showcasing the no-nonsense leader's crackdown on crime and corruption.

President Rodrigo Duterte watched as the second-hand vehicles, some valued as high as $115,000, were reduced to piles of scrap in a little over three minutes.

"Give it to the buyer of steel," Duterte said, recalling his instruction to officials.

"They cannot have cars like that. But they can get something, make toys out of it."

The Bureau of Customs seized $2.93 million worth of smuggled vehicles last year, part of the $866 million in seized goods, government data showed.

"It does not pay to evade taxes in the Philippines so might as well stop trying, because you will never succeed," Duterte's finance minister, Carlos Dominguez, told reporters before letting diggers loose on 20 slick-looking vehicles at a Manila port. A further 10 were simultaneously destroyed in ports in the southern cities of Davao and Cebu.

The government last year destroyed more than $2.5 million worth of cigarettes bearing fake tax stamps.

Duterte, known for his bloody war on drugs and disdain for criminals, has promised to usher in a "golden age of infrastructure" over six years, worth $180 billion. He has launched a comprehensive tax reform program to help fund it.

That Duterte is one fugly SOB, he looks like he was punched in the face repeatedly.

My neighbor last year clear cut 40 acres of mature forest, mostly Oaks, Poplar, & Pine. I thought it was kind of strange that he would do that instead of selectively taking the most worthwhile logs because he was from Holland. Now many people wouldn't put 2 & 2 together and fathom the connection between Holland and clear cutting a forest so I'll just leave them to think about it.

It's an alarm clock for men only. It doesn't make a sound but it uses a much more basic form of stimulation. The clock is equipped with a robotic feminine hand which is refrigerated to 40 degrees f (10c) and at the set time the hand grabs the man by the Johnson. I can build a prototype but I'm having a hard time finding volunteers who are willing to submit to a comprehensive testing trial. I'm fairly sure the clock will work as advertised but it really needs to be tested in the field. professor
