I see Cohen is taking the 5th.

I also saw an interesting discussion on what happens when any Federal Employee takes the 5th. What happens is, that as a private citizen, any Federal Employee can take the 5th, but they are then fired on the spot.

Presumably the POTUS is a Federal Employee. Despite the assumption by Trump, that POTUS = King of the world....

"So Coss, you think that circumventing laws by using other countries to spy is OK?"  

That sounds like CIA to me and MI6 and the rest. But I'd rather be part of a Western alliance than the Sino, or Russian alternative...


​SERCO is just bunch of vile businessmen making the most of their opportunities.  This is how rich people keep getting richer, once they've got past a certain level, they all massage each other and let each other have opportunities to keep getting richer, usually to the detriment of the less well off, like you and me.


Speaking of vile businessmen, what's Jared Kushner been up to lately?

Sleepy New Zealand has sold out....

The Five Eyes, often abbreviated as FVEY, is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries are parties to the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence.

There was a meeting of the respective heads of the countries, in Five Eyes, recently, the only one who did not attend? Trumperbelle.

Maybe the others didn't invite him. Maybe they'd seen the Queen do the happy dance, when she found out Trump wasn't going to come to Buckingham Palace and they wanted some of that...

Kong, we agree on a lot of matters, and for the most part I'm with you on this. I do however think that having a royalty, is an important part of the British and many other cultures. But I feel they should be limited to perhaps about 11 or 12 members, not the multitude there is now. 11 is a good size for a team, see Soccer...

Here in NZ, I have never been able to find out how much money, we are still shipping over to the Royal Coffers annually, c/o Queen Vic.

May be a Trumpian approach is what is needed for this breeding concept...
