Was this a "Look at me " suicide?

New York Port Authority attack: Man held after Manhattan blast


A man is being held after an attempted terror attack at New York City's main bus terminal.

"Terrorists won't win," Mayor Bill de Blasio said after a blast at the Port Authority terminal in Manhattan during the morning rush hour on Monday.

The suspect, Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant, was injured by a "low-tech explosive device" strapped to his body, officials say.

Three other people suffered minor wounds when it blew up in an underpass.

A photo circulating on social media shows a man, said to be Akayed Ullah, lying on the ground with his clothes ripped and lacerations on his upper body.............>

White lies, convenience lies the nuns taught us about. Then of course there is cheating on tests to get ahead, cheating on your taxes because the government cheats you, lots of different things that are not right for you, but are best for you.

Re :   The Case For Israel

Jerusalem has been the defacto capital of Israel since the beginning, has it not?  And hasn't free and equal access to all the religious sites occurred only while Israel has run the show?

As has been pointed out, there's no such thing as a palestinian, it's a made up people and a people no one else wants.

How so?

Wrong is wrong.  

Right can be fuzzy which is why codes of conduct are useful.

It is wrong to be a slave to principles. Always do what is best, not what is right.

Re :   OREGON MILITIA

I've often offered to cease my hostility toward the federal government if only they confiscated land fairly.  The states east of the Rockies should have 60 to 99% of their lands confiscated, too.

You were wrong to support the bail out, though you could not have foreseen the humiliation and fiasco that eventually came from it.

When you have a ethical moral code, it's often a mistake to stray far from it.

Re :   Right vs. left: a summation

The problem with labels are too many people think it's all or nothing re: philosophy. This leads to deadlock. I am a conservative & agreed with few policies of B.O., however I did agree with his bailout of the auto industry. Gasp  for most conservatives.

Topic :   Right vs. left: a summation

I came across this today, just wanted to share...


As a matter of economic policy, conservatives believe that the people themselves are better at spending their money than the government is. Cutting taxes and regulations drives economic growth. Liberals, meanwhile, believe that the government is the prime, or at least an indispensable, driver of economic growth.

This is why liberals tend to talk about spending on everything from infrastructure to education as an “investment.” The Obama stimulus was sold as an investment that would pay huge dividends, thanks in part to Keynesian “multipliers” — the idea that every dollar of government spending results in more than a dollar in economic growth.

Obamacare, we were told, would reduce the deficit by cutting health-care spending and improving economic growth.Conservatives make similar arguments about tax cuts. Over the weekend, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell told Fox News that the tax cuts would yield more than enough economic growth to make up for the deficit the bill creates on paper.

On the philosophical side, there’s an even starker conflict of visions. Liberals tend to start from the assumption that the government is entitled to as much revenue as it needs, and so tax cuts amount to giving people money.

Earlier this year, Senator Bernie Sanders proposed a budget that would add at least $21 trillion to the debt over a decade. But when the Senate passed the GOP tax bill, he tweeted, “Historians will look back on Dec. 1, 2017 and conclude this was one of the great robberies in US history because Republicans are looting the Treasury.” For Sanders, letting people keep more of their own money is theft — because it’s really the government’s money.

Conservatives, on the other hand, start from the assumption that money belongs to the people and businesses who earn it. Letting people and businesses keep more of their money isn’t a handout or giveaway, never mind a robbery: It’s fairness.

The ultimate problem is that everyone says they care about the deficit, but few people care about it enough. Democrats think spending is more important than the deficit, and Republicans think cutting taxes is more important. And that’s why the national debt is more than $20 trillion, and growing.

Re :   OREGON MILITIA

The Fed Government is limited Constitutionally re: how much land they can own. Of course they have violated this over & over which leads to the Bundy type thing.

Trump shrinks Utah monuments angering environmentalists


President Donald Trump has dramatically scaled back two public outdoor parks, or national monuments, in Utah.

He declared an 85% cut to the state's 1.3m acre Bears Ears National Monument and a 50% cut to its 1.9m acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

The policy is likely to provoke lawsuits from Native American tribes and environmental groups.

But it will be welcomed by ranchers and business interests who view such monuments as federal land grabs...............>

Not exactly right.

It is exactly as I described.

A task needs to be done.

Private industry - Assign it to your best worker so it gets done right.

Government - Assign it to your laziest worker & find out the easiest way to do it.

Not in my experience.  In my experience, it gets done incompetently, eventually.  Then others have to fix it and memo's come out chastising everyone including those who corrected the problem.

In government you have pay grades which means there is no incentive for working harder & doing a better job, except for pride.

True.

Of course if you had any pride you would not be a government worker.

Now you're just being cantankerous.  One can do a job well, no matter what that job is, and be proud of a job well done. 

In private industry you are rewarded with pay for performance incentives for doing a better job.

Not always true, as you know.  The same pathology exists within private enterprise however, the ramifications are far more severe.  A business can and will collapse if the most productive employees get fed up and leave. 

In a government bureaucracy, however, the collapse doesn't happen.  Instead, demands go out for more $, more people and more authority.
