Translation: Junes Lokka a city councilor in Oulu and a "immigration critical" politician complains that the police have stopped investigating the "getting pushed into a car" incident. He then called the police and told "the retard" that if the police don't care about it then he will handle it with his own crew. He then says that he is making a video where he promises a bounty for anyone who kills those "Antifa-scums."

So... We have a Finnish politician who is inciting violence and trying to recruit vigilanties by offering a bounty on people's heads. Also, the "incident" that he refers to is him trying to incite a fight at a protest and getting shoved. He did get shoved, but he didn't fall onto a road and even if he had, that road was empty at the time.

EDIT: Here's the video of the incident that he made.

(On the Russian Facebook-copy of course.)

He refers to the people on the video with titles such as "fat whore" and "nigger." On the video he is only talking about a reward for "information" but the comment on the screencap uses the word "kill money" which refers to bounty that a person gets for killing a destructive animal.

If you have an Intel Haswell or Broadwell processor, don't install the anti-Meltdown/Spectre firmware patch.

It's triggering reboots.

Desert Rose by Sting and Cheb Mami. One of the unfortunate consequences of the September 11, 2001 attacks was that it killed the interest growing in the West, particularly the US, in Arabic music, this being one great example of a melding of Western and Arabic music.

This and Contrarians Arabian black metal upthread really show what makes music from or inspired by that region great.

Its those rhythms.

The Middle-Eastern melodies use very distinctive musical scales. There are regional differences, for example my friend who has studied ethnic music a bit recognized northern Middle East style in this (awesome) song:

1. If you want to claim you're mentally sound, maybe you shouldn't compare yourself to a man who had Alzheimer's.

2. You ran in 2000, so no, you didn't win on your first try.
That's all you noticed?

Very successful businessmen was a blatant lie, collusion hasn't been proven to be a hoax, Obama won on his first try too, and has never been called a genius by Trump (ignoring the entire non sequitur of it), the entire point of the absurd Reagan comparison wasn't that he was sick - it was that he claimed he wasn't and the whole thing was a massive MSM conspiracy (the man is batshit insane!), his only assets were his dad's money, ambition, seething pathology, narcissism, and a total lack of perspective. Sometimes they worked for him, sometimes they didn't. Self praise is no praise at all (same for coerced praise), without even looking at the most dubious claim of all ----- I think that would qualify .

Right now the only person I can think to compare to Trump is Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. Way too many people are utterly convinced that they are/were amazing people who can do no wrong while the reality is almost exactly the opposite.
The religious right (mostly) makes abortion an ideological issue but it is just a basic health care service. If there is health education on the camps that touch the subject there is a good reason to make sure government funds don't go to anti-abortion propaganda. I wouldn't want the government to pay for Jehova's Witnesses' propaganda against blood transfer or secular anti-vaxxer propaganda either.

If the camps don't teach anything about abortion one way or the other then I agree, this is an overreach.

And it's that last bit why asking the question up front is inappropriate, and that's the core of my objection.

For some reason I read last night the issue being only funding for religious summer camps, probably due to serious lack of sleep. This rule would make sense if that was the case but since it effects also charities that don't do direct indoctrination like soup kitchens it is a huge overreach. This just makes me dislike Trudeau even more than I already did.

Oh, those might be the groups suing over it, but I think it goes farther than that.
