    Australian feminist Germaine Greer didnít hold back when speaking about the future for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Harry announced on Monday that Markle will become a youth ambassador to the Commonwealth. Greer told ď60 MinutesĒ she doesnít think the 36-year-old former actress will enjoy being a full time royal.

    SUICIDE SQUAD: REASONABLE RENT AND APARTMENT ¬ĎINCIDENTS¬í By Matthew Coslett hen visitors first come to Japan, there is a constant temptation to try and save money by cutting as many corners as possible.

    Why Wouldnít This Work One problem with a centrally planned government healthcare delivery program is that some receive non taxable income in the form of employer paid health care insurance premiums while others have to have to pay the premiums from their after tax income. One of two ways toward a solution is to either treat the employer paid premiums as taxable income or have the premiums paid by individuals treated as non-taxable income. The benefit to the people will come because of the Constitution and Capitalism. The Constitution limits the legislative power to control the people and Capitalism allows...

    ďAmazon just bought Whole Foods,Ē my friend texted me seconds after the announcement of the proposed acquisition. ďItís over. The world.Ē This unease is widespread, and has raised new calls for breaking up Jeff Bezosís impending monopoly by force. Surely the company, which now generates 30% of all online and offline retail sales growth in the United States, and already controls 40% of internet cloud services, has reached too far. The 3% hike in Amazonís share price since the announcementówhich would alone more than pay for the acquisitionómay attest less to the dealís appropriateness than to investorsí growing fear that...

    National Review ^ | 6-10-2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    He believed that the FBI director misled the public to think that the president was under investigation. At last, at least for your humble correspondent, this weekís big hearing brought clarity. I now believe President Donald Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey because he believes Comey intentionally misled the public into believing Trump was under investigation by the FBI. There is enough support for this theory that, had the president been forthright in explaining it when he dismissed Comey on May 9, there might have been considerably less uproar. Instead, Trump dissembled, as he seems hardwired to...

Living most days in an authentic Land Girlís uniform, she sometimes spends the evening in an air-raid shelter she built in the garden.

    Islam is the most violent religion in the world. Indeed, Islam has been spread by violence since its inception. What explains this? This is pretty straight forward folks. There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no such thing as peaceful Islam. Violence is not an aberration in Islam‚ÄĒit is DOCTRINE. Dozens of passages in the Quran exhort Muslims to hate or kill or terrorize infidels (non-Muslims) wherever they find them. For examples, see Suras 2:190-193, 2:216, 2:244, 3:56, 3:142, 3:151, 4:24 (rape of captive women); 4:34 (wife beating); 4:56, 4:74 (beheading), 4:76, 4:84, 4:89, 4:91, 4:95, 4:104, 5:32-38, 7:96-99, 8:12-15...
