    Sri Lanka's president shook up the country's top security establishment after officials failed to act on intelligence reports warning of possible attacks before the Easter bombings that killed over 350 people, his office said Wednesday.The capital of Colombo, meanwhile, remained rattled by reports that police were continuing to conduct controlled detonations of suspicious items three days after the attacks on churches and luxury hotels, and the U.S. ambassador said that Washington believes "the terrorist plotting is ongoing." During a televised speech to the nation Tuesday night, President Maithripala Sirisena said he would change the head of the defense forces within 24 hours, and on Wednesday he asked for the resignations of the defense secretary and national police chief in a dramatic internal shake-up. He did not say who would replace them. Sirisena said he had been kept in the dark on the intelligence about the planned attacks and vowed to "take stern action" against officials who failed to share it. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe edged away from comments made by his state minister of defense that the bombings were carried out in apparent retaliation for the March 15 mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, that killed 50 people. He told reporters Wednesday that the mosque attack may have been a motivation for the bombings, but that there was no direct evidence of that.

    The fact is that you are exaggerating true facts and advocating for people who want bigger government to do their stealing for them to be allowed to vote. You are also misrepresenting my position, I have repeatedly stated that those who were falsely convicted or who were convicted of fake crimes should be released and allowed to vote but most people who are in prison belong there and are not fit to vote. They most certainly should not be allowed to vote while they are being punished for their crimes. You are making an argument that is just as logical as recommending that a broken toe be amputated because the amputation wound will heal faster than the bone.

    It's also irrelevant, felons vote for bigger government and since the proper role of government is to protect rights and not to violate them then felons should not be allowed to vote. You want to allow people to increase the size of government. FOR SHAME! :nauseated:

    Nobody should, that is why if we can eliminate people from the voter pool who will do so more than others we should. Well it has been studied how they vote when they are allowed to vote and they vote for more government theft at higher rates than other people and there is a logical explanation why. Then why would you want to give them reinforcements?

    Growth forecasts for the overall gross domestic product of Gulf Arab states stands at 2.1 percent for 2019. Gone are the days of breakneck economic development: The region's sustained real GDP growth averaged around 5.8 percent between 2000 and 2011. Instead, most Gulf Arab states will post fiscal deficits this year, and growth in some economies will decelerate. A concerning mixture of increased government spending, low growth rates and year-on-year deficits is brewing in Gulf economies. The interrelated trends suggest that while fiscal adjustments in Gulf Arab states have made some headway, these efforts have not been sufficient to offset lower global oil prices and spur desired levels of growth across the region. Gulf Arab states have made demonstrable progress in reducing their fiscal break-even oil prices — the crude oil price required for these states to balance their budgets. Since the price of the OPEC Reference Basket of crude oil crashed from a high of $110 per barrel (/bbl) in 2014 to a low of $26.5/bbl in 2016, Gulf governments have announced plans to reduce expenditures and generate new revenue through taxes, fees, and subsidy reductions. These initiatives have yielded modest reductions in fiscal break-even oil prices across Gulf states since 2014, a year in which Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain required oil prices exceeding $100/bbl just to balance their budgets. Yet public sector budgets remain precariously dependent on hydrocarbon revenue, which complicates the ability to offset low oil prices through fiscal adjustments. The fiscal break-even oil prices for most Gulf Arab states remain above or near the upper threshold of oil price estimates for 2019. In other words, the projected crude oil prices for 2019 suggest that most states will run deficits this year. Morgan Stanley expects Brent crude to remain around $65/bbl while Goldman Sachs believes that prices may reach a fleeting high of $75/bbl. Other estimates suggest oil prices will fluctuate between $50 and $70/bbl over the next few years. More worryingly, some governments are spending more year-on-year without realizing higher growth rates. Saudi Arabia boosted state spending by 7 percent with a $295 billion budget for 2019, reflecting the kingdom's largest budget and paving the way for the sixth consecutive year of budget shortfalls. Despite increased state spending, overall GDP growth forecasts suggest a deceleration of growth from 2.5 percent in 2018 to 1.8 percent in 2019. Non-oil growth is expected to increase to 3.6 percent, which ostensibly bodes well for economic diversification efforts. However, non-oil revenue constitutes a small portion of Saudi Arabia's total budget revenue — estimates range from 10 to 37 percent. Oman increased spending by 3 percent in its 2019 budget; however, like Saudi Arabia, the sultanate's growth is also expected to slow from 2 percent in 2018 to 1.5 percent. Although spending did not rise as much as in the previous year, Oman's budget will produce a deficit equating to 9 percent of GDP. Total public debt may reach as high as 58 percent of GDP by 2020, but the government has been slow to implement measures to generate new revenue sources, such as the 5 percent value-added tax currently imposed in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Bahrain possesses even less fiscal maneuverability than does Oman. Low oil prices since 2014 severely depleted the country's foreign reserves and pushed public debt to nearly 93 percent of annual economic output. Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Kuwait extended a $10 billion fiscal aid package on the condition that Bahrain would implement a fiscal program to balance its budget by 2022. As part of this program, Bahrain agreed to introduce a value-added tax in 2019, deepen subsidy cuts and enact a voluntary retirement plan for government workers. The country's economy is expected to grow 1.8 percent in 2019, according to...

    Not everyone has committed a real crime, those in prison for committing real crimes have, since they have demonstrated criminal tendencies it is no surprise that they vote for criminal government policies to do their stealing for them, allowing them to vote gives more power to the most criminal politicians to steal from everyone. Why should criminals be allowed to vote to use government to steal from me? What you advocate leads to an increase in government theft.

    Then maybe you can answer my question: How is it the right thing to do to allow criminals to use government to steal from me? I agree but many of them would have gone into some other actually criminal line of work and ended up as felons anyway. I am all for total restoration of rights to a pristine state for fake crimes but allowing actual felons to vote WHILE INCARCERATED is beyond insanity, I am against letting actual felons vote after they get out because they have demonstrated their moral turpitude.

    It was bound to happen sooner than later, but Indian media finally decided to play the “Pakistan card” by attempting to connect their neighbor’s ISI intelligence agency to the Sri Lankan terrorist attacks, a desperate narrative move that says a lot more about the Indian incumbent’s political vulnerability during the ongoing month-long electoral process than anything about Pakistan’s purported culpability in this tragedy. The Cheap Shot That The Whole World Saw Coming It was only a matter of time before Indian media predictably blamed Pakistan for the Sri Lankan terrorist attacks, which just happened earlier this week in a piece by Vicky Nanjappa for “Oneindia” about “How ISI radicalised Sri Lanka through the Pakistan High Commission“. The writer wasted no time in reminding the reader about a years-long scandal in Sri Lanka initiated by India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) and claiming that a Pakistani diplomat on the island nation was responsible for plotting a Mumbai-style attack in South India, never mind the fact that the incident that this allegedly masterminded one was being based on was actually a false flag. In fact, it can be argued that one of the consequences of the Mumbai attacks is that India capitalized on the manufactured notion that Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency was behind it in order to portray its rival as a regional bogeyman who all of South Asia had to be suspicious of from then on out, so it’s logical in hindsight why India’s RAW intelligence agency would also cook up a conspiracy about this in Sri Lanka in an attempt to weaken historically strong Pakistani-Sri Lankan relations.

    State governments are collecting more in tax revenues than their pre-recession peak, thanks to both a booming economy and the 2017 Republican tax cuts, according to a new report. Forty-one states are now bringing in more revenue than their pre-recession highs, according to data from the Pew Charitable Trust’s Fiscal 50 project. All told, the states collectively brought in 13 percent more revenue in the third quarter of 2018 than they did during the pre-recession peak. Most of the nine states that have yet to rebound are energy-producing states that have seen revenues drop as global commodity prices fall. The stretch of revenue growth is one of the strongest in recent memory, said Justin Theal, a researcher at the Pew Charitable Trusts who co-authored the report. The run of positive news began in 2017, when taxpayers raced to get their money to state and federal governments before the tax reform overhaul took effect. It has continued, albeit at a slower pace of growth, because of a surging stock market, low unemployment and growing wages. Personal income tax receipts rose by more than 5 percent in the last four quarters, a sign of the strong labor market and wage growth.
