    Americans free to sue Saudi Arabia

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKCN11Y2D1

    If it ever comes to a conviction it'll probably never be enforced. But an interesting developement nonetheless.
    Perhaps down the line the USA will even start accepting the International Criminal Court in Den Haag. But that's probably just wishful thinking.
    Sorry for the lousy German

    Congress demands passage of law that will only cause problems. Shocking development.

    It is cool to see Obama get over-ridden once at least, though. Other than that, I'm not sure how I feel about this. If anyone still watches cable television can you please let us know when the, "Were you or someone you love injured or suffered financial hardship due to the terrorist attacks on 9/11? If so call the law offices of Mack, Farlane, and MacFarlane."

    For all the people wondering how you can sue a country, basically all you have to do is read NAFTA and TPP because those treaties are literally for making it possible for businesses and individuals to sue countries.

    Mitch McConnell wants to know why Obama didn't do something to warn them that it was a terrible law.

    Enjoy repealing your own legislation, I guess. Good one, guys.

    Congress tabled the bill. Obama said it was a stupid idea.

    Congress voted on the bill. Obama said he would veto it.

    Congress passed the bill. Obama vetoed it.

    Congress overrode the veto. Obama called them retarded.

    Congress complains that Obama didn't tell them how to do their job enough.

    Why didn't he tell them it was terrible? It's like there should be some sort of process for that.
