“Moscow, May 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti): Russia will compile a list of extremist symbols, prohibited for use by non-governmental organisations and companies.
The list will be drafted as a result of the justice ministry-sponsored amendments to the law against extremist activity.
Furthermore, NGO symbols should not defile Russia’s flag, national anthem or emblem, or those of Russia’s regions and municipalities, foreign countries, or religious symbols.
They also should not insult racial, ethnic or religious feelings, [...]
Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and former reporter, scolded a congressional panel on Wednesday, saying that he should not be called illegal, and saying it is an insult to his family who brought him here.
“When you inaccurately call me illegal, you not only dehumanize me, you’re offending them,” he said. “No human being is illegal.”
Mr. Vargas testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee alongside Chris Crane — a U.S. Immigration [...]
Sugarcoat it all you want. Let the analysts try to make sense of it. Buy the story you’re being fed. The reality is, Bank of America Corp. and Citigroup Inc. turned in garbage reports parading as fourth-quarter earnings Thursday.
Special and one-time charges, unforeseen costs, settlements, legacy costs, foreclosure legal fees — it was a junkfest. But that’s not even the worst of it.
These types of quarters happen with such [...]
In a move that is rich in irony, President Obama agreed Tuesday night to sign an emergency deficit reduction bill that does almost nothing to rein in spending and then jetted out to Hawaii to resume his vacation at an extra cost of more than $3 million to taxpayers.
The price tag is in addition to more than $4 million that is already being spent on the Obamas’ Hawaii idyll, bringing [...]
A New York University class on transnational terrorism is requiring students to “hypothetically plan a terrorist attack” — and shocked cops say the outrageous lesson plan is an insult to the officers killed on Sept. 11.
The controversial course, taught by former Navy criminal investigator Marie-Helen Maras, asks the pupils to “step into [a terrorist’s] shoes” and write a 10- to 15-page paper on their battle plan.
“Some of the most notorious [...]

Police now using tear gas and water cannon to prevent crowds getting to US Embassy in Saana

According to the Obama administration, the unemployment rate in the United States has been slowly coming down over the past couple of years. But is that actually true? When you take a closer look at the data you quickly realize that the real unemployment numbers are much worse than we are being told. For example, if the labor force participation rate was the same today as it was back [...]
The saddest part about the recent decision in Brussels, Belgium, to fine “offensive language” is how utterly predictable it was.
When you combine the inherently expansionist character of government with the nanny-state sensibilities of the modern technocrat, the necessary outcome is total control of the individual — his or her comprehensive subsumption into the collective will.
Since there is no more potent expression of individuality than speech, and since there is no [...]
TEHRAN, Iran – Israel’s existence is an “insult to all humanity,” Iran’s president said Friday in one of his sharpest attacks yet against the Jewish state, as Israel openly debates whether to attack Iran over its nuclear program.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said confronting Israel is an effort to “protect the dignity of all human beings.”
“The existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to all humanity,” Ahmadinejad said. He was addressing worshippers [...]
No, He Didn’t Say That!
Most Americans confuse zionism and Judaism.
While many assume that zionism simply means allowing the Israeli nation to exist, many zionists in high positions within the Netanyahu and Sharon administrations advocate for very different policies altogether, including the use of offensive wars throughout the Middle East. See this, and read the section entitled “Securing the Realm” here.
In reality, many devout Jews are against zionism as being antithetical to traditional Jewish values. As such, many Jews [...]

Telling a man he has ‘no balls’ as an insult is a crime punishable with a fine because it hurts male pride, Italy’s highest court has declared in a ruling on a curious row between two cousins.

cousin Alberto, a justice of the peace, for the phrase uttered during a heated courtroom exchange in the [...]

There is a new species of man prancing around upon the world stage. Suddenly, quite unannounced, this bizarre typology appeared, comparable to… well, nothing really. It is a remarkable creature, immediately recognizable by a certain androgynous streak running along all its features: a sheep-like nothingness, combined with an ounce of fanatical malice, dominating the rest of its general outward appearance. I say androgynous, because this new species [...]
LONDON (AP) — Police say a man has been arrested in connection to Twitter postings directed at British Olympic diver Tom Daley.
Daley’s father died of brain cancer a year ago and the 18-year-old Olympian had hoped win a medal “for myself and my dad.” But he finished fourth on Monday in the 10-meter synchronized platform with teammate Pete Waterfield.
Within five to seven years, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that more than one million new veterans will enter their system, in need of disability claims processing, health care, and more.
The influx is both enormous (the VA reports it served 1.3 million veterans in total during 2011) and inevitable: with combat ending and the ranks narrowing after a decade and a half of war, many troops will begin the [...]
A feminine hygiene product launched in India which promises to ‘brighten’ skin around the vagina is causing widespread controversy.
A 25-second TV advert for Clean & Dry Intimate Wash is being advertised on prime time television, and shows a woman using the product to lighten her sexual organs to please her man.
The product has attracted condemnation on Twitter and blogging sites, with one (male) user branding it ‘the ultimate insult’ and [...]

CHICAGO (WLS) - When Newt Gingrich calls Barack Obama the best food stamp president in history, he intends it as an insult, but to the Reverend Jesse Jackson, it’s not such a bad thing to be called.
Gingrich routinely on the campaign trail refers to Obama as the Food Stamp president, claiming that there has been a major expansion of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and that the program [...]
There’s more. Banks work with all commercial properties to reduce mortgages to actual/ current market value, but won’t do the same for residential homeowners. You can use Google to learn about it and educate yourself like anyone else.
A year ago, in what seemed like a supreme irony, the Mortgage Bankers Association sold its Washington, D.C., headquarters at a big loss.
On Thursday, insult was added to injury: The building’s buyer [...]
Primary results are negated if the establishment candidate is beaten
Paul Joseph Watson
Friday, December 16, 2011
The Iowa primary is widely acknowledged as a hugely influential indication of who the eventual victor will be in the Republican race. Two of the last three winners have gone on to become the successful nominee. But according to Fox News pundit Chris Wallace, if Ron Paul wins on January 3rd – it doesn’t count.
From Yahoo News:
India on Tuesday vowed to ban offensive material from the Internet after Facebook, Google and other major firms told the government they were unable to screen content before it was posted.
Communications Minister Kapil Sibal said talks with the Internet giants had failed to come up with a solution following complaints that he had lodged three months ago over “unacceptable” images.
“My aim is that insulting material never gets uploaded,” Sibal told [...]

Adding Asian insult to European injury we just got the Preliminary HSBC China November PMI reading which posted the first drop since July, tumbling from 51 to 48, which is a 32 month low. Expect risk to be solidly off for the balance of the night… and then the BTPs will resume trading. Only this time they will be accompanied by the OATs which will likely spike to record yields [...]
The talking points prevailing in the wake of the debt ceiling debacle would have you believe that this deal had been a compromise, and the best for which conservatives and Tea Party ought to have hoped possible.
At the end of the debates lies a truth concealed by all the fluff: There was no compromise in this debate; one side prevailed, but it wasn’t the Tea Party. [...]

BANGKOK – AN AMERICAN has been arrested in Thailand for allegedly insulting its monarchy, a serious offence in this Southeast Asian nation punishable by up to 15 years in jail.
The US Embassy confirmed the arrest but gave few details.
The 54-year-old man arrested on Thursday created a link on his blog in 2007 to The King Never Smiles, an unauthorized biography of King Bhumibol Adulyadej that is banned in Thailand, a [...]

Stand-up comedian Guy Earl was ordered to pay the money to Lorna Pardy, 32, while the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal also ordered the Vancouver restaurant owner, [...]
