    The dead count has now risen to 84 according to news on my country. Really, France must be cursed or something. 3 successful terrorist attacks...? (Charlie Hebdo, Bachaclan, and now this)

    My condolences to all the parents whose children were killed in all this.

    Isn't that because they're relatively closer to terrorists than any other region? Not even the closer cities are safe.

    If we take in account a past video posted by ISIS that shows the countries-targets, then most countries aren't safe either.

    I hate to say it, but we should expect more such attacks from said organization in the coming months, at least one more big one before 2016 ends.

    The French Prime Minister was right, we really need to learn to live with terrorism. Especially if you know your country is in their plans to hit it.

    I'm surprised that no one is talking about the coup attempt in turkey.

    We would talk if it was successful. There have been numerous coup attempts over there you know in recent years, all failed. This one was no different.

    A New Jersey woman was served a fried rat head at a Popeye's in Harlem. Hmm, I guess Beavis and Butt-Head were working there:

    Senate votes 97-to-1 to override 9/11 bill veto.

    ...on Wednesday, the Senate voted 97-1 to override Obama’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act. The House swiftly followed with an override vote of 348-77.

    The override was the first time Congress has successfully challenged the president on a piece of legislation, despite Obama’s 12 other vetoes, including 10 when Republicans were the majority of both houses. In most instances, Congress didn’t even attempt an override.

    The Senate is out to do something very dangerous, and stupid. But mostly dangerous.

    The more insulting thing here is the 97-1.

    What the f*** are these people on?

    I was very disappointed to hear about this vote today, and how it's the first time an Obama veto has been overridden. One again, blind religious/racial bigotry claims a victory :/

    Because it opens up the door for other counties to file lawsuits against the US for things we've done in the past.

    If we can sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11, other countries can/will follow up. It's a bad idea.

    • It hurts our relationship with Saudi

    • It requires we have solid evidence Saudi Arabia was directly involved with 9/11 (we don't)

    • Good luck finding a way to get them to comply within legal reasons lol.

    Honestly we shouldn't be allies with them in the first place because they're basically a Isis that made it.

    I mean they behead people for sorcery and said that all atheists are terrorists.

    Here 1055 reason to not give Saudi Arabia weapons, they killed innocent people in funerals.

    And the best part of this is that Saudi Arabia is head of the human right panel, what had this world come too.

    What did I read on the news today? Republican majority pulling power away from the independent ethical commity that's supposed to combat corruption in congress?

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/0...ersight-233111

    YAY!!! Republicans are at it again! Wasn't Trump's motto that he'd change the status quo in Washington? Well, apparently, that means that his party's first act of business in the new year is to shut down the bureau that's supposed to keep corruption away from congress. But that doesn't mean anything changes really, since Washington was already corrupt, now it will just be moreso.. and easier for the ones being corrupt (aka the GOP).

    AKA: First act of business: "In order to be as corrupt as we please, we don't want some bureau looking over our shoulders. Lets vote!"

    It's sickening that this is the first act of business in the new year. GOP.

    My thoughts go out to the good people affected by the terrorist attack in London today. One person was stabbed with a kitchen knife and several others were run over by a vehicle. Police shot the assailant. Click on this link if you wish to stay updated:

    My friend told me about the attacks via text today since I wasn't feeling well so I couldn't see her in school. Her sister and a French exchange student were supposed to go to London on a trip tomorrow, but now they have to go to Cambridge instead because of the danger. I feel extremely awful about the attacks, and wish the families of the people who died and got injured good luck.

    .__. Seriously? Wow, what a dumb move. A country with a terrible track record on human rights, sure they'll be really helpful on the women rights commission. Not.
