The World Bank Wants Eastern Europeans Above-Ground and Paying Taxes

http://reason.com

The World Bank has clued in to the fact that many Eastern Europeans prefer to work in the "shadow economy" — that is, off the books and out of sight of tax men, inspectors and other assorted bureaucrats. This has the World Bank very concerned, for a variety of reasons — some convincing, and others, not so much. By the way, World Bank Employees are exempt from income taxes.

'Harry Potter' is now most Banned Book in America

http://www.pen.org

Harry Potter is now the most banned book in America, according to the American Library Association. It is undeniable that themes of death and resurrection abound in the stories, as well as detailed depictions of potions and other hocus pocus. But while there are Christians who decry the celebration of witchcraft, there are other Christians who consider Harry’s journey an edifying allegory for Jesus Christ. That is another problem with banning books: it obscures the diversity of viewpoints within its potential readership.

http://www.flood-myth.com

The fantastic stories about these men living over nine hundred years and not getting around to fathering their children until they had lived a century or two, are the result of an ancient mistranslation of the original numbers.

Miners forced to attend Romney event without pay and forced to donate

http://www.rawstory.com

A group of coal miners in Ohio feel they would have been fired if they did not attend an Aug. 14 event with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and contribute to his campaign — and to make matters worse, they lost of day of pay for their trouble. “There were no workers that were forced to attend the event,” management said. “We had managers that communicated to our work force that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory, but no one was forced to attend the event."

Domino’s Fined by 'Orwell Olympics' for Five Pizzas on a Table

http://www.thepoke.co.uk

...a brand enforcer for the Olympic Deliverance Committee was on the top deck of a bus when he spotted the illegally arranged pizzas. “Under the Olympic Symbol Protection Act 1995 we have fined Dominoes for attempting to suggest a link between their business and the games by leaving out a number of pizzas on a counter that had a striking similarity to the Olympic rings logo.” Dominos denies the charges, and claim the pizzas were merely ‘waiting to be put in boxes’ a few moments before delivery.

Why did no one fight back? Questions over movie theater shooting

http://www.naturalnews.com

(NaturalNews) One of the most shocking realization emerging from the James Holmes Batman movie shooting rampage in Aurora, Colorado is the fact that nobody apparently tried to stop the shooter. This is absolutely baffling. Out of at least 70 moviegoers (and maybe more, as numbers remain sketchy at the moment), it appears that nobody tried to tackle him to the ground, shoot back with their own gun, or even fight back in any way whatsoever. The accounts of witnesses are those of people fleeing, ducking and screaming... but not fighting for their lives.

Dudeism has sometimes been referred to as a "mock religion"

http://en.wikipedia.org

Dudeism

Dudeism has sometimes been referred to as a "mock religion",[1][2] though its founder and many adherents regard it as "real."[3][4]. Its stated primary objective is to promote a philosophy and lifestyle consistent with the original form of Chinese Taoism, outlined in Tao and Laozi (6th century BC), blended with concepts by the Ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (341-270 BC), and personified by the modern day character "The Dude" (Jeff Bridges) in the Coen Brothers' 1998 film The Big Lebowski.[5]

What is a good definition of a free society?

http://www.helium.com

To have a truly “free society” all interaction needs to be on a voluntary basis, this is also known as voluntaryism or voluntarism. Voluntaryism “is the philosophy which holds that all forms of human association should be voluntary. One of the moral principles frequently used to support this philosophy is the non-aggression principle, which prohibits the initiation of aggression or coercion”.....

Jesse Ventura: GOPDEMs are "Street Thugs" Urges Vote for Gary Johnson

http://www.examiner.com

“The Demo-Crips and Re-Blood-licans have been in charge in this country for over one hundred years and look at the shape we’re in,” Ventura defended himself from the first moment of the live CNN interview, “We have a national debt that’s out of control. They send us to wars that we shouldn’t be fighting in, meaningless wars. And think of this for a moment, I’m 60 years old now and for over 30 years now, half of my life, we’ve been at war. That’s ridiculous.”
