    This is why a person should always chamber the round before they need it. Brain surgeon robber clearly has a failure of the gun to return to battery after he attempts to chamber gun. You can see it in the video the round gets caught similar to a "stovepipe" but the round has not been fired. Robber knows this and at first starts to hide gun after first showing it, then points it at the victim, with the obvious slide not back in proper position. The gun could not have fired like that.

    Too bad the worker didn't have a gun (I love it when armed robbers receive instant karma).

    Centrelink has apologised to a Melbourne student who was left confused by a letter that includes multiple typos, misspells the agency's own name and cites an irrelevant law.

    The letter, sent to Ben Klein on April 20, advised him his Austudy payments would end in February next year.

    But the document included at least a dozen errors, including references to Mr Klein's "lastest claim" and incorrectly spelling the agency's name as "Cedntrelink".

    It is also unsigned and unevenly spaced.

    Despite being about Austudy payments, the letter said the notice was given under "paid parental leave law".

    I remember when Obama was running for office the first time and all these "rumors" were floating around about him and gay behavior in his past. He denied it all.

    Now his bio comes out and he says he "considered pursuing a gay relationship".

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ama-considered-pursuing-gay-relationship.html

    Here was the original guy who said he had drugs and sex with Obama back then and got called all sorts of stuff.

    Too bad this story isn't getting much coverage in MSM here in the US. This is a giant story and the repercussions that stem from the situation are going to not be good for the US. The article says there is $70 Billion in PR debt. I am worried the US taxpayer is going to somehow get stuck with this via some bull$hit PR bailout or something.

    The MSM are more concerned with reporting every time Trump passes wind.

    It won't happen during the current administration, but its more than likely that Puerto Rico will become the 51st State.

    That's their ticket out of the Seventy Billion Dollar hole:
    • bankruptcy/partial bond default at the local & municipal government level, and
    • and access to long-term lending from the US Federal Reserve system at a preferential rate.

    "Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it."
    -Thomas Jefferson, 1786 letter to John Jay

    You are judging a large, diverse group of people based on comments by an uninformed few.

    Judging from the front pages of the Washington Post and the New York Times from this week, I doubt there are any informed progressive liberals who has a problem with the First Amendment.

    I think you are responding how you think things should be, rather than how they really are in the real world. These are just here in the US.

    I wonder if the folks who organize these fools are the same folks who invest in robotics. What better reason to bring in robots who will do a better job, cost less over time, and won't make customers have to deal with some idiot who messes up the order.

    $15 an hour... Ha Ha Ha
