Obama Abandons Failed Cuba Policy After More Than 50 Years
"The United States intends to open an official embassy in Cuba in the coming months, the White House announced Wednesday, part of a broader normalizing of diplomatic relations after the countries exchanged prisoners. In a conference call with reporters, a senior administration official called the developments "the most significant changes to our Cuba policy in more than 50 years." "What we are doing is beginning the normalization of relations of the United States and Cuba," the official said. "President Obama has long believed that engagement is a better tool than isolation and nowhere is that clear than in Cuba, where we have seen a policy of isolation fail for the last 50 years." The White House said that Obama would order Secretary of State John Kerry to begin discussions with Cuban officials on re-establishing diplomatic relations and high-level discussions and visits between the countries are expected to follow. The opening of the embassy will happen "as soon as possible," an... more... - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

‘Oh God, It’s Mom’: Pundits’ Mother Calls in to C-SPAN | Mediaite
"Brothers Dallas and Brad Woodhouse were debating ye olde bipartisanship on C-Span’s Washington Journal Tuesday morning when they got a call in from “someone down south.” “You’re right I’m from down south!” said the voice. “Oh god, it’s mom!” Dallas said as both brothers hid their faces. “I disagree that all families are like ours,” Joy Woodhouse told the program. “I don’t know many families that are fighting on Thanksgiving.” Joy said she hoped the brothers got all their disagreements out on C-Span and behaved themselves over Christmas. “Okay mom,” they replied. “See you this weekend.”" - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

What are the hardest languages to learn?
Some languages would require more than a year of study for a native English speaker, while others would take just weeks. Regardless of what language you study, your brain will reap the benefits.
I can definitely say that learning Arabic was easier than Japanese, which was hard. Then again, I started with Arabic when I was 8 and Japanese when I was 20. But Arabic has so many dialects, that what I learned was nearly meaningless in my situation. Korean is way easier to learn than Hindi was. For me, hearing the different sounds is the hardest part. - Anika

Justice Scalia, Asshole of the Day for December 16, 2014

While Dick Cheney has been leading the way on defending the Bush administration’s torture program— both in redefining torture and explaining how he thinks 9/11 means that all treaties and prior norms no longer matter— someone thought to ask Justice Scalia about whether torture is constitutional.
 
Now you’d think the issue would be cut-and-dry. After all, the Constitution prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment”. But Scalia has this to say:
  
“We have laws against torture,” Scalia replied. “The Constitution says nothing whatever about torture. It speaks of punishment; ‘cruel and unusual’ punishments are forbidden.”
 
“So torture is forbidden, in that case?” the host asked. “If it’s imposed as a punishment, yes,” Scalia responded. “If you condemn someone who has committed a crime to be tortured, that would be unconstitutional.”
  
You’ll notice that Scalia is only talking about torture as punishment. So the interviewer asks about torture in interrogation, and Scalia is fine with that:
  
“We have never held that that’s contrary to the Constitution. And I don’t know what provision of the Constitution that would, that would contravene.
 
“Listen, I think it is very facile for people to say, ‘Oh, torture is terrible.’ You posit the situation where a person that you know for sure knows the location of a nuclear bomb that has been planted in Los Angeles and will kill millions of people. You think it’s an easy question? You think it’s clear that you cannot use extreme measures to get that information out of that person? I don’t think that’s so clear at all.
 
“And once again, it’s this sort of self-righteousness of European liberals who answer that question so readily and so easily. It’s not that easy a question.”
  
For Scalia then, torturing suspects is OK, but not if they are convicted of a crime. The fact that the suspect is considered, by the Constitution, to be innocent until proven guilty, doesn’t matter. Somehow I doubt that the Founding Fathers would agree. So, for saying that convicts have more rights than suspects, Justice Scalia is the Asshole of the Day.
 
It is Justice Scalia's fourth time as Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for
 refusing to consider evidence of innocence because it might be more work for him saying the Supreme Court can’t overturn acts of Congress when it comes to gay rights, when he himself overturned Congress’ Voting Rights Act the day before saying the Constitution allows the government to favor religion over atheism

Police Union Head Says 12-Year-Old With Toy Gun Was Threat To Cleveland Cop: 'Absolutely' - http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewir...
In the old days, they used to put a gun or a knife on somebody after a shooting. Now they don’t even bother. But today, we have cops crying wolf all the time. They testify “I was in fear of my life,” the grand jury buys it, the DA winks and nods, and there’s no indictment. - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...
