The Ultimate War Crime: Erasing the History of Mesopotamia.

[…]The US military were given co-ordinates of all Iraq’s museums, monuments, archeological sites. “All of Iraq is an archeological treasure”, remarked an archeologist at the time. Yet the US troops led destruction’s way, creating a military base in Babylon (dating from c 2,300 BC) site of the Hanging Gardens.

Gov_ Robert Bentley-tweets

“It is not fair to saddle the next Governor with hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, and I will not do it.”

The Governor thinks its “not fair” to the next Governor, good to know he’s thinking of others during this. What about fairness to the poor Alabama citizens who are already struggling to make ends meet? Is it fair to them to have a tax hike?

So long Internet, We Hardly Knew You: FCC Votes to Regulate Internet

My Way News

Michael Powell, a former Republican FCC chairman who now runs the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, warned that consumers would almost immediately “bear the burden of new taxes and increased costs, and they will likely wait longer for faster and more innovative networks since investment will slow in the face of bureaucratic oversight.”

New York Post Rips Jon Stewart on the Way Out

New York Post

How Jon Stewart turned lies into comedy and brainwashed a generation

[…]Though Stewart has often claimed he does a “fake news show,” “The Daily Show” isn’t that. It’s a real news show punctuated with puns, jokes, asides and the occasional moment of staged sanctimony.

It contains real, unstaged sound bites about the day’s events and interviews about important policy matters.
