        Can you even imagine *what sort of mentality* the animals must have that would actually *do* this sort of thing ❓ When I was a kid, *we thought nothing* of catching a bus from school to the movies on a weekend……

          It’s times like these when you wish Hell actually existed to fry the sod for ever.

          This was not a school bus,that’s a meaningless comparison, it was moving evacuees-the people whom some Kiwis (including some on YNZ) don’t want to come here. Well, this lot won’t be asking to emigrate. These are the people who seek refuge in other places, and as far as I am concerned, anyone who wants to escape that sort of thing is welcome. Isn’t it a bit hypocritical to react with horror to these things but not want to let the people on the receiving end come here and escape them ?

    *Mike Pence in South Korea reassures allies & gives South Korean & US troops a dinner speech
    *Young South Korean says South Korea should take the lead in resolving problems with North Korea rather than passively following the US’s decisions
    *North Korean man in the street praises NK military scientists & says the US is lying: believes their missile test was successful

    I read about the three ‘rules’ that Mike Pence & his wife have-he doesn’t have dinner alone with another woman, go to do’s where there’s alcohol without his wife, or work late alone with a woman. Wise man. He’s making sure that nobody can make a scandal out of nothing-or accuse him of anything.

        I can’t see anyone wanting to set Wayne up by taking photos of him with a woman and claiming that a romance was going on-for one thing, nobody would be interested and nobody would believe it, anyway. The Pences are obviously aware that the most innocent male/female contact can be construed as an illicit relationship ( X and Y’s hot date !) and that men are very vulnerable to accusations that are hard to disprove.

        Wayne is hardly likely to be of interest to anyone but you.

    Another mass killing in the US. That poor old man-just walking along, doing no harm to anyone and then that happens. 11 other people were murdered too. But nobody must take away the right of people like the killer to have guns, even if it means that this sort of thing happens.

      ‘People’ like him, aren’t supposed to be able to buy guns Kitty, even in America.

      Do you have a *link*, Catkin ❓

      Would be interesting to see if the perp was involved with the *Black Lives Matter* outfit.

        Well, the old man was black and the murderer doesn’t seem to have been too fussy, although he made a lot of racist remarks.

        I haven’t heard of any Black Lives Matter supporters showing their feelings by killing black people themselves.

    I did, Nelly, and could stay up all night, waiting for ‘justice to be dealt’. Except I have work in the morning. Let me know how it works out. Ka kite, miss… 😉
