George Carlin: “When you’re born in America, you’re given a front row ticket to the freak show”

Kim Jong Un called Seth Rogan’s upcoming movie ‘The Interview’, “an act of war”. Everybody’s a critic.
In the movie, Rogen and James Franco star as two journalists who, after scoring an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, are ordered by the CIA to assassinate him. In a statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman characterized Rogen as a “gangster filmmaker” and called upon the US to block the film, according to a report from the AFP. “The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable,” the spokesman said, adding that the US would face a “resolute and merciless response” if it fails to ban the film, which is slated for release later this year.

Vice News video of the day: Kurds fight for control of their nation

As recently as 2012, the Iraqi army and the Kurdish fighters, know as Peshmerga, engaged in a standoff that at times seemed like it could break out into conflict. For now though, the Kurds are firmly in control — though south of the city, sporadic attacks continue. VICE News spoke with Falah Mustafa Bakir, the head of foreign relations for the KRG, who said that the Kurds have no intention of giving up their control of Kirkuk.

ESPN sneaks cameras into a migrant worker camp in Qatar to look at the slave labor that’s building the massive infrastructure for Qatar’s World Cup in 2022
Even as crowds cheer their teams on in the 2014 World Cup, the lengths that Brazil went to in order to make it a reality cannot be downplayed. However in 2022, the World Cup will be in Qatar, a tiny, massively wealthy oil state where nearly none of the citizens actually work, but instead the government imports laborers from around the globe, mainly from South Asia. And with the World Cup construction, hundreds and hundreds have died already, being forced to work 10 to 12 hour days in 120 degree heat. They’re not allowed into the cities other than to work, they’re kept in squalid ghettos on the edges of town, their passports are taken and they become property of their bosses. Welcome to Qatar!

Teaching Creationism as science is now illegal in all UK classrooms

Seeing the craziness that has consumed parts of the US with religious groups trying to infiltrate Christianity into public school science classrooms with religion very poorly disguised as “science”, Great Britain recently made teaching Creationism in public schools a crime. As it should be.

Iraq war architect now thinks we should go back and stay foreeeevvverrrr

Former Deputy Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, the man often called “the architect of the Iraq War” stated this weekend that had we just never ever left Iraq at all, if we had just kept it a perpetual war, everything would just be dandy right now and the Iraqis would surely all form a human chain of love from the border of Kuwait to the borders of Turkey. Well, I elaborated a bit, that’s the gist of it. Not at all that what’s happening in Iraq is what pretty much everyone knew was inevitable, and that’s that the country is splitting apart along ethnic boundaries instead of being confined to the arbitrary borders assigned to it by Great Britain in the 1930s.
