CHICAGO --Surveillance video shows more than a dozen people doing nothing to help a Chicago bartender as he is attacked, left unconscious on the street and accidentally run over by a taxi.
Marques Gaines later died at a hospital.
The video his family released Wednesday shows a man outside a convenience store punching Gaines, who falls to the ground. The video shows people ignoring Gaines and walking by, then a taxi runs over his body.

"Lessons learned from online engagement with 'Bernie Bros' during the Democratic primary will be applied to the rest of the primary season and general election — responding quickly and forcefully to negative attacks and false narratives," the group said. "Additionally, as the general election approaches, the task force will begin to push out information to Sanders supporters online, encouraging them to support Hillary Clinton."
>>40181 I'm all for Mr. McAfeein for the Libertarians if Trump and Hillary are the nominees. A forceful character like his could distinguish the party from those statists. If it's Cruz for the Republicans then I'm more hesitant.
Yes, but Cruz would keep things as-is at best, which I for one am not happy with. Voting in another politician to fix the work of politicians is just silly if not insane. We need someone who understands the world as it is now, internet and all.
>>40189 Be realistic. No libertarian candidate has a chance at the office of the president in 2016, but under the right conditions the party could grow significantly, disrupt the shits, and force policy. MacAffee would exist as an incarnation of punishment. He would come off as petty if he went after someone that has close to the same politics without tedious esoterics.

By presidental treaty the US is officially obligating itself to the Paris Accord today. On the condition that a sufficient number of other nations do the same in the coming weeks the treaty will go in full effect. Once in effect it will be locked in through the first term of the next president.
>>40086 There is no such thing as a "presidential treaty". The Constitution of the US states that only The US Senate has the specific power to ratify all treaties. Obviously there is no way Mitch McConnell as head of the US Senate right now is ever going to bring this up, much less let it pass, so I can understand why Obama is doing what he's doing, but it isn't legally binding.

As bizarre as it sounds, smoking scorpions is not unheard of in South Asian countries, but according to regional media, the practice has recently been gaining popularity in several parts of Pakistan. The scorpion venom can apparently put the smoker on an intense high, becoming highly addictive with time.
So how does one smoke a scorpion, anyway? It’s a simple yet effective process – a dead scorpion is dried in sunlight for several hours or a live one is burnt on coal until it dies. The dried carcass is then lit on fire and the smoke is inhaled. Since it’s the tail... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
At the height of his addiction, he would scour the land of his village, hunting for scorpions to smoke. When the need was overwhelming and there were none to be found, he would actually travel all the way to Peshawar, in Afghanistan, to get some. “It was the worst form of addiction,” he said.
Experts agree that scorpion venom is highly dangerous for the human brain, far more so than other drugs, especially when inhaled. “Scorpion smoking causes short and long term memory loss,” explained Dr. Azaz Jamal, a medical officer at the Khyber Teaching Hospital. “Smoking...

While scorpion smoking is still rare on a global level, it serves as a cheap, easy thrill among the youth of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and some parts of India. “Because of our successful drives against the sellers and addicts of alcohol, opium, cough syrup, and heroin in urban areas, young people are flocking on the highways to try the new craze of scorpion stings,” a police officer in the city of Bharuch said.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce this week that Alexander Hamilton's face will remain on the front of the $10 bill and a woman will replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill, a senior government source told CNN on Saturday. Lew announced last summer that he was considering redesigning the $10 bill to include the portrait of a woman. The decision to make the historic change at the expense of Hamilton drew angry rebukes from fans of the former Treasury Secretary. The pro-Hamilton movement gained steam after the smash success of the hip-hop Broadway... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Along those lines, Lew also plans to announce this week that Andrew Jackson -- a less beloved former president whose face graces the front of the $20 bill -- will be removed in favor of a female representing the struggle for racial equality, according to the government source. That decision would place a female on one of the most widely circulated bills in the world. But the historic change placing a female on the front of the $20 note won't come for more than a decade, the source said, since the process for changing the design of that note is still in the early stages. "The... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The idea of including women in a mural on the back of a bill has been called into question. "It will take a microscope to see who those individuals are, and we'll be left with another decade or more of woefully inadequate representation of women and their worth," wrote the group Women on 20s in an open letter to Lew, published by Time. "Nobody looks at the back of the bill, and that's not likely to change," the group wrote. "A vignette without a woman's portrait on the front of the bill (even if she must share with Hamilton) will be seen as a token gesture and an affront to Americans of all ages who are expecting you to reveal your choice of a singular woman based on their input. As a friend of ours put it, relegating women to the back of the bill is akin to sending them to the back of the bus. The Rosa Parks analogies are inevitable."
