"Members of the Phoenix City Council, claiming the right to free exercise of religion, have been routinely opening government meetings with Christian prayers for many years. The current rules allow for anyone who wants to deliver a prayer to simply make a request. Enter the Satanist Temple of Phoenix claiming the same right to deliver an invocation at the next meeting and threatening a lawsuit: 'if its member's liberties are trampled.' You guessed it. Now the Christian lawmakers are scrambling to change the rules." (02/11/16)

"North Korea on Thursday ordered a military takeover of a factory park that had been the last major symbol of cooperation with South Korea, calling Seoul's earlier suspension of operations at the jointly run facility as punishment for the North's recent rocket launch a 'dangerous declaration of war.' North Korea said it was responding to Seoul's shutdown order by immediately deporting the hundreds of South Koreans who work at the complex just across the world's most heavily armed border in the city of Kaesong, pulling out the tens of thousands of North Korean employees and freezing all South Korean assets."

You’ve got to fight! For your right! To green bean casserole!

"Here's what happens when poorly written laws meet jerk-ass neighbors. The state of Arizona's food regulations exempt certain common private social functions from having to comply with all the safety requirements. These are common in most states. But for some reason, the exemption for private noncommercial potlucks only applies to workplaces. It is actually illegal in the state of Arizona to have a private potluck at home. You cannot bring your own dip made from mixing a ranch dressing packet into a tub of cream cheese to the neighbor's Super Bowl party. One would imagine that the police and health departments probably don't go around looking for potlucks to bust up, and one would be correct. However, there's always that jerk." (02/11/16)

"Fifty-two inmates were killed and 12 injured in a brutal fight between two rival factions and a huge fire at a prison in northern Mexico on Thursday, the state governor said. Nuevo Leon Gov. Jaime Rodriguez told a news conference the fight involved a faction led by a member of the infamous Zetas drug cartel. Rescue workers could be seen bringing injured inmates from the Topo Chico prison in Monterrey, at least some with burns. The riot broke out just six days before Pope Francis is scheduled to visit another Mexican prison, in the border city of Ciudad Juarez in Chihuahua state." (02/11/16)

"Australia appears set to legalize the growing of marijuana for medical use nationwide. A bill introduced to parliament Wednesday (Feb. 10) by the Liberal Party would amend the Narcotic Drugs Act 1967. It looks guaranteed to become law, as the main opposition party immediately pledged support for it. Under the proposal a national licensing and permit scheme would be established for supplying medical cannabis to patients with painful and chronic conditions. It’s expected to become law by the end of March." (02/10/16)

"State-sanctioned monetary systems are instruments of control. The individuals who benefit the most will not be easily persuaded to change the arrangement and will attempt to prevent us from using alternative methods or media of exchange." (02/11/16)
