Interesting about the white left never heard it before.

Seems Hillary is copying Macron's campaign slogans. "En Marche" -> "Onward Together"

En Marche! (French: [ɑ̃ maʁʃ]; English: "Forward!", "Onward!", Working Republic or "On The Move!")

Just three weeks until we vote.

The Lib Dems are pulling out every trick to get in power, but it's all bullshit, there's nothing in their promises. They're gonna legalise cannabis. Wow, that'll help kids get on the housing ladder. Some bullshit about reversing Brexit too, and totally ignoring a democratic vote.

Aint got a chance in hell.

You heard about the Russian social media/website ban by fake-"Kiev" yes? https://www.rt.com/news/388627-ukraine-social-media-ban-price/

Hope it costs them a pretty penny. I consider Ukraine's government illegitimate but maybe in 10 or 20+ years I'll change my mind when it effectively doesn't matter. As some say, "the people get the rulers they deserve" so maybe the Ukrainians deserved corrupt leaders who knows.

Doing some research on that quote I used ... seems the author is this guy Joseph de Maistre https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Joseph_de_Maistre

Joseph de Maistre, the most visionary of France's early counterrevolutionaries, was one of the first to speak of this. A Catholic, he traced the French Revolution to the acrid solvents of the Reformation. With its celebration of "private interpretation" of the Scriptures, Protestantism paved the way for century upon century of regicide and revolt originating in the lower classes. It is from the shadow of a cloister that there emerges one of mankind's very greatest scourges. Luther appears; Calvin follows him. The Peasants' Revolt; the Thirty Years' War; the civil war in France...the murders of Henry II, Henry IV, Mary Stuart, and Charles I; and finally, in our day, from the same source, the French Revolution.
Corey Robin, “Garbage and Gravitas”. The Nation (2010)

Hmm... no I think these people may be wrong. There have always been wars WAY before "Protestantism" came into being. Nothing I can say concretely though without a more thorough study of the concepts of division and unity in the scriptures.

Ooh, I just heard a golden quote on some politics radio show I listen to.

On Corbyn's immigration policies a man said:
"The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

Yeah... Sad but true. In a vacuum, it's all roses, to help people live better lives and all that. In reality, mixing completely incompatible cultures together breeds conflict and lowers the quality of life of everyone involved.

Unemployment is at its lowest rate for 42 years apparently. Brexit has played a big part in that, some Europeans have been put off coming here.

Do I go? I'd like to. But I don't know if I can be bothered. Conservatives are winning this election easily and I'm already voting for Corbyn. I don't really see a point in it.

Corrupt cops in Washington DC covering up the Seth Rich murder investigation? Now we've got the evidence and more than just "unfounded speculation"!

So.... happens that ex wife of Tony Podesta, Heather Podesta, is on the board of The Washington DC Police Foundation. Well whaddya know. [Tony Podesta is the brother of Hillary campaign manager John Podesta]

Law enforcement are often the tools of the ruling elite. That's fine if ruling elite is kind and benevolent. But human history has shown us that the ruling elite is rarely kind or benevolent.

Some modern day studies on ancient human sacrifice:

Did it happen again with the Seth Rich murder? Probably. "There's nothing new under the sun" as they say.

Is it ok to conquer and invade other nations? The Bible seems to say YES if the other nation is engaging in despicable practices (against others and its own citizens). On the other hand, it's NOT wholly appropriate if you're doing it to just "take their stuff/land". Both motivations seemed to be in play when ancient Babylon conquered ancient Israel. When ancient Israel conquered ancient Palestine, the Lord gave them instructions on what to burn (so they wouldn't be defiled)... k I don't know where I'm going with this just wanted to point it out. It's just astounding the ancient Israelites practiced child/human sacrifice when they had the oracles of God.

Note that those numbers are from May 2007. I'll bet the percentages are even higher now 10 years later.
