Yes, she is getting on in years.  The poor woman believes it her duty to work till she is stopped by ill health.  

That is why I am a republican (British meaning).  I do not think it fair to keep intelligent creatures in captivity.  Ok so it is the epitome of gilded cages.  It is still a cage.

Putting Trump in a gilded cage..................... Hmm................................ What a nice idea.  

No, on reflection, I think he was born there.  (he had to beg a million off of his dad to get started.  Nice to belong to a family that thinks a million is a small amount.)  Nice idea though.

There was bound to be a turn around. This is the fault of the Muslim Extremists and the hatred generated attack after attack.

I think the bottom line here is whether any of the attacks were directly linked to an organization versus the act of one crazy person.

The last attack may have been linked someone, but it is just as likely it was Isis, because this did them a world of good stirring up the Muslim in London to carry out more strikes.

Christians - especially Catholics may have a history of massive violence in spreading their religion equal to the Muslims in spreading theirs. Actually the taking of the "Holy Lands" by the Jewish people and wiping out the people living has started a 3,000 year conflict with the original people, like the American Indians versus the White Man who took their land and slaughtered them.

Yet currently, we don't have Christian's exploding themselves in public places, setting off bombs or releasing poison gas in subways to promote their religion. The Muslim Extremists do, and have also become extremely savvy in hacking and electronics.

London is a crossroads for the U.K. and New York is for the East Coast. Even in World War II with the blitzkrieg
http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/blitz.htm
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blitzkrieg

This was the beginning of the Blitz - a period of intense bombing of London and other cities that continued until the following May. For the next consecutive 57 days, London was bombed either during the day or night. Fires consumed many portions of the city. Residents sought shelter wherever they could find it - many fleeing to the Underground stations that sheltered as many as 177,000 people during the night.

London is a key location not only for propaganda but of what could be the worst attacks and is currently a hotbed for more incidents.

There is a pattern here and it will continue with more problems and more deaths. It is literally impossible to monitor all the people well enough to stop these attacks. No matter how much spying is done on the Internet, on cell phones, or what monitoring is done, lone wolf attacks cannot be stopped and will continue around the world.

The bottom line, once again, is whether these attacks - like in Paris - are linked to Isis or Al Queda - which are now in the process of trying to unite.  This won't be the last of it. There will be more.

Darren Osborne was radicalized by far right groups like the EDL and Britain First on social media, specifically Twitter. Their online rhetoric changed a 47 year old father of four into a killer in the same way that lone wolf attackers here and abroad are turned by ISIS to commit heinous acts of violence on innocents. This wasn't ISIS - this was right wing ideology fanned by hate speech, and thriving on fear of immigrants.

Here's a thought - you're more likely to be shot by a toddler in US than killed by a terrorist. These groups want you to be scared in order for their agenda to succeed. It's up to us to decide whether we help them achieve their goal, or give them the collective middle finger.

Something I think ought to be pointed out: whenever there is a massacre of the innocents, this is immediately blamed on "far right" factions in Britain, as Britain tends to be slightly left-wing.  So I would like to point out that the far right, throughout history, have killed far less than the far left.  

Hitler was the leader of the National SOCIALIST party of Germany - supposedly extreme right but in fact extreme left.  From the point in a circle on which all political parties are marked, the Nazis were at the point where the extreme Right and extreme Left meet. His party was responsible for the killing of six million people, some of whom were my relatives.  Not counting those killed by military action.

Stalin, supposedly extreme left, also came from the point where left and right rub up against one another.  His regime was responsible for the deaths of 60 million people, again not including military action deaths.  Christianity, Judaeism and Islam, as well as the major Pagan denominations, as religious organisation, that extol peace and love, in their early conception wiped out a roughly equal quantity.  OOPS!  

Now perhaps we can stop all thinking of racisim and start wondering what is wrong with us as a global civilization.

Maybe the animal we call human needs to grow up and evolve a little more.
I like Ike

I'm sure if the others species sharing this ball of rock could speak, they'd echo your sentiments.

And don't forget Mao Zedong's "Great Leap Forward", and the tens of millions that died as a result.
