12:13 PM Theodore Gorath commented on The Morning News: Oso Three Years Later, Attack at UK Parliament.
The identity of the attacker in England is being reported as Abu Izzadeen, who is apparently a well known preacher of hate, and has been convicted of inciting and funding terrorism in the past, for which he served 3.5 years in prison. He is a British citizen, born in London.

Here is a short Vice interview with him:

Pissing on a fire is fucking stupid. There are tons of ways to put out a campfire, and urinating on it is basically at the bottom of that list, as any cub scout will tell you.

Reports are also indicating that a van was intentionally driven into many pedestrians on the nearby Westminster bridge, but it is unknown if the incidents are connected.

UK police seem to be treating this as a terrorist attack for now.

@15: Our intelligence agencies always tell the truth, never keep secrets, and never break the law. Right?

I mean, I can not find any evidence they have ever done any of these things.

@9: Agreed, the concept of Obama tapping Trump's phones or those of his campaign workers is well within the realm of possibility based on what we know of the history of his use of the intelligence agencies.

Not that there is any evidence, but the list of people that the Obama administration wiretapped is long and includes world leaders, media leaders, and AP journalists. The New York Times claimed that the information suggesting Russian ties with Trump's campaign came from wiretaps.

A non-president (at the time) Trump is small potatoes compared the the people we know Obama's administration already put under long term, and at times illegal surveillance/interception.

@26: Um, you were the one who said rural black people don't own anything and just cook. I honestly do not even know what the hell you are trying to say at this point, to be honest.

@22: You do realize that "small town rural America" includes the south as well, right? Where 55% of the entire black population of the USA lives? Kind of racist to assume they don't own anything and just fry catfish all day.

@13: I am unsure how you read my comment but somehow missed about 80% of the words.

Those Americans will not do physical labor for slave wages and slave accommodations. But there are many Americans willing to do physical labor for a decent wage and decent treatment.

Are people really unaware that lots of white Americans do hard physical labor everyday? They will do it, just not for slave wages. Not all white people are CEOs. Besides, not only older white folks are unemployed, you know.

According to league sources, the Seahawks are open to trading Richard Sherman for the right offer. But he has a pretty hefty cap hit the next couple years, so I doubt there will be any movement there.

@3: No doubt we are all complicit, and of course the prices of produce will rise if the Ag industry loses its slaves. But, much like the $15/hour campaign, we all just have to absorb that cost for the greater good of everyone.

This is the dark side of globalism that no one really likes to think about. The phone in your pocket was put together by child slaves because it is cheaper that way. Your socks were stitched by children in a sweatshop because it is cheaper that way.

This is globalism too. This is what free trade is as well. We all share in the shame that we essentially support this system through our willingness to turn the other way for cheap(er) consumer goods. Slavery never went away. It is perhaps worse than ever before, especially in Africa and the Middle East/SE Asia:
