    Those motherfuckers...and it is all true...I spoke with a neighbor who is from China and is trying to talk her husband into going back after living in the U.S. for over 25 years. She has worked in a retail store for 25 years and remarked how Russian and Ukrainian refugees work there. They get 2,000 a month and a place to live and they love each other and hate Americans for their rudeness, etc.

    The interesting part is that the store she works for trains all the employees to not accost shoplifters and to just let them go per store policy. She said they easily lose thousands of dollars in shoplifting a day. I thanked her for the information and said I would be seeing her soon.

    Thank you, David Dinkins, whoever that is.

    UK court gives Assange chance to appeal
    against US extradition | DW News


    Mar 26, 2024
    A British court says Wikileaks founder Julian Assange cannot immediately be extradited to the United States to face espionage charges.

    High court judges say they want further assurances about what will happen to him. If the US fails to provide those assurances over the next three weeks, the court will give Assange permission to appeal extradition - on grounds including breach of freedom of expression, and because he might receive the death penalty.

Because of its vital function to the U.S. east coast connectivity and security, I sense it will be addressed directly by both state and federal officials quickly, but my prayers and condolences go to the families of those that lost their life's there.

    It seems to me that he is fighting windmills, he should just go and put an end to his suffering. Here is the thing, he might win in the end but he has prolonged the process of his suffering for literal years.

    Talking about drugs, would rest of Europe follow in suit anytime soon?

    Germany partially decriminalises cannabis

    I think government has no business in telling people what they want to consume. Sure regulate it all you want and then sell it, but make it legal damn it. Especially plants and plant medicine. There is no crime whatsoever. I have witnessed here how alcohol, the most dangerous drug out there is legal and destroys many lives. It makes some people unpleasant and aggressive. Our government wants to bring even stronger alcohol into grocery stores. I've not smoked pot, but I've never seen any aggressive stoner hippies.

    How Mexican drug cartels made their own fentanyl crisis

    Channel 4 News


    Apr 3, 2024
    Fentanyl is killing more Americans than ever. It's blamed for more than 70 thousand fatal overdoses each year.

    US authorities say the synthetic opioid is mostly produced in Mexico and trafficked across the border. But addiction and deaths are also on the rise in Mexican towns and cities.

    When smuggling into the US all but stopped during the pandemic, the cartels unleashed fentanyl on their own population. Now they're trying to clean up the mess.

    Our Latin America Correspondent Guillermo Galdos travelled to Tijuana, to see how it's going.

    His report shows images of drug use.
