Homeless Child Apparently Unaware He Lives In Nanny State

According to sources, the boy, who is visibly malnourished and has been abused by nearly every adult in his life, apparently hasn’t been told that America has become an entitlement society that gives out free health care, housing, food stamps, and God knows what else to anyone who wants it—regardless of whether they’ve actually worked for it.

Why anyone would choose to sleep in an alleyway every night when he could instead be taking advantage of the bloated welfare state in a nation that is quickly on its way to full-scale socialism was reportedly beyond the ability of sources to comprehend.

ISIS dump truck may have been target of first Canadian air strikes in Iraq

Although the military has been silent about what targets were bombed by two CF-18s during Canada's first air raids of the war, the U.S. command overseeing operations in the Gulf region released a list of the weekend bombing missions. Government sources told CBC News the target that was hit was deemed to be of strategic importance.

Nicholson wouldn't release details, but said more information would be forthcoming at an Ottawa briefing on Tuesday — 48 hours after the mission.

Tally ho! The elite’s new blood sport: Russell Brand hunting — RT Op-Edge

But there’s a new blood sport this autumn - Russell Brand hunting. Members of the ‘hegemonic consensus’ supporting Elite Journos Club have been competing with one another to see who can write the most condescending and ‘eviscerating’ reviews/articles on Brand and his new book ‘Revolution’.

It's filed a petition with the Library of Congress and the US Copyright Office asking that modifying a game be considered fair use when it's done so that a game can be made playable again after a developer has "abandoned" it and stopped running servers needed to allow gameplay.

For when activation servers no longer activate The EFF's proposal is particularly relevant to games that regularly check in with activation servers to ensure that a pirated copy isn't being used.
