British Government Strike Law Most ‘Oppressive In The Developed World’

British trade union laws are the most restrictive in the developed world. This is a legacy of the Thatcher years, with legislation passed between 1979 and 1997, which made it harder for unions to gain recognition and raised the bar for ballots on strike action, requiring 40 percent turnout, making it much harder for unions to go on strike.

Sloppy Cyber Threat Sharing Is Surveillance by Another Name

Cybersecurity is a serious problem, but it’s not going to get better with Congress doing whatever it politically can instead of doing what it should. It’s not going to get better by neutering the few privacy protections we have. Good security is supposed to keep your information safe. But these laws will make your private emails and information vulnerable. Lawmakers have got to start listening to experts, and experts are saying the same thing. Don’t just do something, do the right thing. And if you can’t do the right thing, then don’t do anything at all.

Record 93.6 Million People Not in American Labor Force, Highest Since 1977

While the White House again is smiling through its teeth and claiming, "the strongest two-year job growth since 2000," a record-setting 93,626,000 Americans did not even participate in the nation’s labor force at all in June 2015.

That means that 93.6 million Americans age 16 or older who were not in the military or institutionalized did not hold down a job and didn't try to find one, either.

This is the largest number of people not working or trying to work in this country since 1977.

American public opinion on the Confederate flag remains about where it was 15 years ago, with most describing the flag as a symbol of Southern pride more than one of racism, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

Doctors Without Borders on TPP: “We consider this the worst-ever agreement in terms of access to medicine,” he said. “It would create higher drug prices around the world—and in the U.S., too.

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam.

Fight for Freedom - US vs Donbass

It's a mad upside down world where the US brainwashed its people to believe that Putin had invaded Ukraine while people from Donbass want Putin to intervene militarily to stop the US backed Kiev forces. They are begging Putin to stop the war. SE Ukraine begs Russia to help. Millions have fled to Russia from Ukraine including Kiev soldiers who were disillusioned with the war. Russia is a safe haven of peace. When Hitler invaded Poland the refugees that escaped did not go to Germany. People of Donbass do not flee to the US.
Unfortunately, the recent Minsk ceasefire agreement that was agreed to by both sides of the Ukrainian civil war lasted about an hour. It comes as no surprise as the first one was broken as well. The puppet president who was placed there by Obama never had any intention for peace. Genocide is their goal and the people of SE Ukraine in Donbass know it. When the devil tells you he wants peace you better prepare for war.
