Isn't that discriminatory to people that do not celebrate Thanksgiving?

US protests over Russian 'harassment' as diplomats allegedly given date rape drug | World news | The Guardian

Is lies. Anyway Russian Gang know nothing of this. Was not being there at the time.

Article also claim:
Quote:
American officials in Moscow have complained about mysterious nocturnal break-ins during which furniture is rearranged and televisions and lights switched on, the Washington Post reported in June. Officials have returned home to find water faucets left running and, in two cases, human excrement on their floors.
Is true, but also doing this to own comrades. Russian Gang learn jolly japes from British spies in 20th century.

Is haunted house. Russian mob or NKVD have nothing to do with break-in. There are no camera or microphone in television. Excrement not Russian. Nyet.

According to a report from Al-Sumaria News, ISIS issued a fatwa in Mosul on Tuesday to forbid indoor cat breeding.

Questioning minds wonder if this means no breeding of indoor cats or no indoor breeding of cats.

ISIS came from the rebels we created to overthrow Libya, when they moved to Syria, another target of the Clinton Obama regime, the funding was pushed through Saudi Arabia and Qatar to make it less obvious that ISIS is a proxy US military attachment. Another way we indirectly supply ISIS is to send arms and money to the 'moderate' rebels, which are fighting along side ISIS.

Didn't Taco Bell or McDonalds or something have a similarly disastrous sports score related promotion once a long time ago? Had to give away too much free or heavily discounted food because of some big win sort of thing?

Help me. I don't know how to search for this.

In the Simpsons for sure, there was a deal where you got a free Krusty Burger for every gold medal the USA got in the Olympics. They made the deal before the USSR announced they were boycotting the Olympics, and it ended up costing way more free burgers than they expected.

I believe that was based on a real story about McDonalds or somebody doing the same thing.
