Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit over Grand Theft Auto 5 would set a precedent allowing politicians to censor parodies.
Saturday Night Live mocks politicians by dressing in their likeness all the time. The First Amendment guarantees that they and everyone else are free to do so. I don’t see how that practice could stand if Lindsay Lohan won her lawsuit against Take 2 Interactive for allegedly “using her image” in their video game, Grand Theft Auto 5.

Word to the wise: you should not joke about Ebola or about visiting Africa in the recent past—especially if you have just sneezed.
Remember, folks: Airplanes and airports are NO HUMOR ZONES!

Western media have warned that Vladimir Putin is the modern Adolph Hitler (after years of telling us the former leader of Iran was Hitler, but... I digress). According to this intelligence analysis from Stratfor, however, Putin's grasp on power in Russia is wobbling rather severely.
What's the truth?
A journalist friend in Moscow agrees that it is a perilous time on many fronts there, and the outcome is all but certain. Despite public proclamations of a truce or cease-fire in Ukraine, I Read more [...]
Two Banksters quit because they don’t want to be subject to justice.

Democracy in Hong Kong? Only Over Beijing's Dead Body -- But Hopefully Not Over The Demonstrators' Bodies.
Hong Kong is part of China, but enjoys a charmed existence. Administered separately from the rest of the People’s Republic of China, the territory respects civil liberties while hosting the world’s freest economy. But democratic Hong Kong is not.
Demonstrators are pressing Beijing to make good on its promise to Great Britain to provide what London never did while the territory Read more [...]
