So the FCC voted 3-2 in favor of scrapping Net Neutrality.

Political affiliation aside, I can't see how anyone can be happy about this.

I see both sides. I get why people don't trust big corporations (EA anybody?) but at the same time, I don't think that the government should be so involved, either.

I just want a happy medium.

Considering how necessary the internet is to everyday life, I think there kinda has to be neutrality.

UN votes overwhelmingly to reject US recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital.

Perhaps now the cheeto-in-chief can educate himself a little more on the world outside the White House as he takes all 128 of those names.

The United Nations is a worthless organization that has a long history of anti-Israeli/anti-Semitism bias for a long time.

Besides, what good are they when the couldn't stop the Rwandan genocide?  Not only that, but what good are they when many of their own peacekeepers have underage sex with children. That and given how many of them are bribed off by China, Russia, and much of the oil states (Saudi Arabia and Iran) as well as causing the cholea outbreak in Hati yet not even given ANY form of compensation, has done nothing about the human rights abuses in China, Russia, North Korea, or 'insert crappy country with a bad leader/abusive government here' and a whole bunch of other crap, then I say we disband it, nationalize the actual building, and sell it off to somebody who can turn it into a hotel.

Well, at least they don't have to add "bowing to the White House's empty threats and eye-rolling temper tantrums" to that list.

As low a bar as that may be.

Their mission is to prevent WWIII, which so far they've done a pretty good job at. Just because a few bad eggs  were raping and pillaging, doesn't make the whole organization rotten. I'm sure I can pull out FAR worse from our own Armed Forces and police. You know, like that one cop who tortured a man before killing him and got off scott free. The UN is good for the world, but it's not their fault the world is so fucked. They simply don't have the resources to answer every problem in the world. Disband it, and I guarantee the nukes would be flying within the year.

Also, they're not anti-Israel, they're anti-Imperialism and anti-genocide, both of which Israel is committing against the Palestinian people. They've far expanded past their 1946 borders, relocating or killing anybody who stands up to them. And whenever somebody calls them out on their bullshit, they pull the anti semite argument. Fuck Israel, they're imperialist pigs, and deserve to have their borders cut back to what they originally were.

Most 'Palestinians' are actually Jordanians. Jordan occupied the West Bank until the Six-Day War (which Israel had to strike first-via destroying most of the Arab nations air power due to how outgunned it was). The main reason why Jordan didn't take them back was due to how many of the Palestinians via Arafat and the PLO tried to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy, aka Black September. Their failure meant that Jordan refused to completely trust them again.

We have proof that North Korea has a biological weapons program, more specifically, anthrax.

In many ways, this is worse then nukes. Biological weapons are far cheaper to make then nukes and in many ways, just as devastating. If a North Korean commando unit were to infect Seoul with anthrax or more likely, some of North Korea's artillery were to fire a few bio-tipped rockets or artillery shells into the city, then a lot more people would die faster then if they simply leveled it to the ground with a conventional artillery barrage, which also includes multi rocket launchers.

India has test launched an ICBM.

This was most likely a message to China and Pakistan. Iran too.
