(Please note that this paragraph may contain Trump-approved alternative facts for your convenience.)

Yes.
Because if there's one thing large corporations love, it's banning the export of their products.

It burns!

"Some supermarkets are rationing the number of iceberg lettuce and broccoli customers can buy - blaming poor growing conditions in southern Europe for a shortage in UK stores...

Prices have also risen, with Lidl's iceberg lettuce up to 1.19 from 42p...


A spokesman for the Prime Minister, Theresa May, said the government knew there was a "situation", and that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) was "monitoring" it...

But I was wondering - why would folks do a panic buy on iceberg lettuce and broccoli anyway?

Are we sure that it's not actually the EU 'punishing' us for wanting out?

Anyway, maybe these 'Panic Buyers' actually went out to by TV's, chairs, beds or bread and milk, but they panicked and ended up buiyng iceberg lettuce and broccoli?

This is how it begins.
Soon, you will have hoards of crazed vegetarians roaming the streets after dark, prostituting themselves for a scrap of wilted lettuce or an apple.
They live, we sleep.

Which btw most soldiers find very pathetic!
I once knew a girl whose father had fought in WW2: he was quite late getting married and starting a family, especially for a man of his generation, and she was/is the same age as me. She told me once that she did ask him whether he had killed in the war and he had. She asked him how many times and he said he didn't know. He stopped counting after a while.

I speculate that a lot depends on context and circumstances. The memory and trauma must get much much worse if you have any doubts at all about whether you acted correctly; but likewise when the issues are extremely clear, it would presumably make the memories and your conscience easier to reconcile.

In the seminal documentary The World at War Lt General Sir Brian Horrocks divulged that his worst memory of the war was the carpet bombing of Kleves in the final weeks of the war. Kleves was on the 30 Corps line of advance and could have been a dangerous obstacle if properly defended, costing General Horrocks a lot of men; and the war was not long to go. General Horrocks decided that his mens lives were more important than the lives of enemy civilians and he ordered that the town be bombed to suppress any opposition and safeguard the lives of his own men. It worked. But in the documentary he pulled a face and went on to say that he was haunted by extremely bad dreams for many years afterwards and the dreams were always about the time he gave the order to bomb Kleves. This was the one thing he did in the war which deeply troubled his conscience, even though he sincerely believed he was obliged to so as he did.

We are conditioned by our upbringing to avoid doing certain criminal things; but in war actions which in peacetime are criminal often become vitally necessary. Military training does a great deal to harden hearts when a hard heart is required, but in most cases men still have hearts and are still capable of feeling pity and of feeling shame.

Thanks to the present times, where the Islamo-Fascist jihadi scum are among us, we are in a world where peace can turn into war in the blink of an eye. The challenge is going to be whether we can remain humane and liberal as societies and yet act with the necessary ferocity when we are suddenly required to defend ourselves, our loved ones and all that we hold dear from unprovoked attack by people whom we have just cause to hate and detest.

Trump's seven nation ban has hit a snag. Not he fact that it misses the most significant muslim countries when you measure them by USA deaths (Egypt, Saudia Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan), and not even by how many Trump business are resident in those countries.

A Republican-nominated Federal judge has upheld a stay against his Trumpness' Executive Order and it has held against the first response from the Justice Department.


He should be happy that his XO may well be ratified by the highest court, giving it legitimacy that it doesn't have today. Instead, he chooses to belittle the well-respected judge and his decision via Twitter. Anyone surprised?

It appears neither Trump or any of his White House staff understand the separation of powers across the Executive, the Legislative and the Judicial.

It will be interesting to see how this develops, the first time someone says no to Trump and he can't just fire them.

it wasn't going to amount to anything anyway considering it his Saudi $$$ buddies were not included on the list due to him having business dealings with them.

This ban had nothing to do with national security it was only aimed at appeasing the Muslim hating elements in his voting populace.
