George Carlin on Women – comedy video

George Carlin on Women – comedy video

George Denis Patrick Carlin[1] (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comic, actor, author, and social critic. Carlin was noted for his black comedy and thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his “seven dirty words” comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision affirmed the government’s power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves

“Ideas can and do change the world,” says historian Rutger Bregman, sharing his case for a provocative one: guaranteed basic income. Learn more about the idea’s 500-year history and a forgotten modern experiment where it actually worked — and imagine how much energy and talent we would unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all.

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered in the Wake of Terror Attacks
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, May 27, 2017

This article reviews the “mysterious” phenomenon of IDs and Passports of terror suspects routinely discovered (often in the rubble) in the wake of a terrorist attack.In most cases the alleged suspect was known to the authorities.

Is there a pattern?  The ID papers of the suspect are often left behind, discovered by police in the wake of a terrorist attack.

According to government and media reports, the suspects are without exception linked to an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.

None of these terror suspects survived. Dead men do not talk.

In the case of the tragic events in Manchester, the bankcard of the alleged suicide bomber Salman Abedi was found in his pocket in the wake of the explosion.       Continue reading

“STATUS ANXIETY” – Why Money Can’t Buy Happiness – By Alexander Green

Status Anxiety – Why Money Can’t Buy Happiness

Alexander Green

Chief Investment Strategist, The Oxford Club | Investment U

Here at Investment U, we often talk about how to accumulate wealth. But today, we’re digging into the question of why we seek wealth. Enjoy this excerpt from Alex Green’s Beyond Wealth series. It’s an illuminating look at what money can do – and what it can’t do.

In 1759, Adam Smith inquired in his Theory of Moral Sentiments about why we seek wealth. Is it to meet our basic wants and needs?

No, he concluded. “The wages of the meanest laborer can supply them.”

The point of all our striving, he argued, is “to be observed, to be attended to, to be taken notice of with sympathy, complacency and approbation.”      Continue reading

Markets and the British election — May’s mandate melts- The Economist

Markets and the British electionMay’s mandate melts

The markets are remarkably calm about polls showing that the election is narrowing

THERESA MAY, Britain’s prime minister, called a surprise election for June 8th arguing that she needed a strong mandate for negotiating Brexit. The pound rallied on the news, in the belief that a large Conservative majority would allow Mrs May the flexibility to do a deal with the EU, and see off the hard-liners among her party.

For a while, it looked as if the plan was going well. The Conservatives had a 20-point lead in some polls. But the party’s campaign, heavily reliant on the appeal of its leader and the repeated use of soundbites like “strong and stable”, has been misjudged. The manifesto launch was disastrous and included a pledge to charge the elderly (a key Tory demographic) for social care. That pledge was quickly reversed, but Mrs May’s refusal to admit to an obvious U-turn undermined her strong leadership claims.    Continue reading
