1, More post election sinus clearing

(I think thats what the hipsters call a “mic drop”)
2. And even more.

(Despite hours and hours on the phone suffering massive abuse at the hands of Microsoft ‘go ahead and call your lawyers MS I also record my business calls’, each day Donald Trumps words and actions bring more peace to the heart of the classical liberal.)

The ultra-conservative Muslim group around German Salafist convert Sven Lau sparked public outrage with their vigilante patrols in the western city of Wuppertal in 2014, but prosecutors have struggled to build a case against them.
The city’s district court ruled that the seven accused members of the group did not breach a ban on political uniforms when they approached people while wearing orange vests bearing the words “Sharia Police”.
Judges said there could only be a violation of the law – originally aimed against street movements such as the early Nazi party – if the uniforms were “suggestively militant or intimidating”, a court spokesman said.
