Voters in France begin voting in the first round of regional elections just three weeks after the deadly Islamic State militant attacks in Paris. Exit polls show strong gains for the far-right National Front which is leading in six regions and reshape the political landscape after decades of domination by the centre-left and the centre-right coalitions. Midday voter participation is 16.27 percent, marginally higher than five years ago. There are 44.6 million eligible voters.(Reuters)

Germany’s vice-chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, accuses Saudi Arabia of financing Islamic extremism in the West and warns that it must stop. He tells German media, “We have to make clear to the Saudis that the time of looking away is over, Wahhabi mosques all over the world are financed by Saudi Arabia. Many Islamists who are a threat to public safety come from these communities in Germany”. His comments come days after Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service released a report saying Saudi Arabia was “destabilizing” the Arab world.

  1. “Who wants to volunteer to be a loser? ”

    Recycling nutrients is fairly different from recycling metals, for example, as used in your computer. Yes, there are definitely system that might do it better than we are doing it today. Such methods no doubt “cost more,” in some ways–particularly in human labor. That is usually the biggest expense of any kind of production. A method that can reduce human labor makes the process much less expensive.

    One of our big problems now is “going backwards.” Even if some economy could be maintained on the hopefully better system, the likely fact that we now have economy that is too big to be maintained on it becomes a problem. What happens to those losers, when there is not enough to go around? Who wants to volunteer to be a loser? No politician will ever vote for such a system.

  4. XMAS JOKE:

    When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where. Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered. Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a glass of cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the rum. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom. Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said very cheerfully, ‘Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn’t this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?’

    And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

  5. Another Christmas Joke:

    Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

    ‘In honour of this holy season’ Saint Peter said, ‘You must each possess something that symbolises Christmas to get into heaven.’

    The Englishman fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. ‘It’s a candle’, he said.

    ‘You may pass through the pearly gates’ Saint Peter said.

    The German reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, ‘They’re bells.’

    Saint Peter said ‘You may pass through the pearly gates’.

    The Australian started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women’s panties.

    St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, ‘And just what do those symbolise?’

    The Aussie replied, ‘These are Carols.’

    And So The Christmas Season
    Begins……
