Late answer Davy, but yes, it is valid:

President Obama gave an extended interview to Vox, and among the many topics covered, he went further than he's gone before regarding Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that has allowed unlimited, unaccountable spending by billionaires and wealthy corporations in our elections. In the past he's blasted the ruling, including in his State of the Union addressdelivered days after the ruling came down. But now he's throwing his support behind a constitutional amendment to overturn the ruling.

The president told Vox in an exclusive interview that he wants to see such a drastic change, because he thinks the money-in-politics status quo is so damaging to our political system.

Arguing that "unlimited money" in politics is a key cause of polarization, Obama said, "I would love to see some constitutional process that would allow us to actually regulate campaign spending the way we used to, and maybe even improve it."

OK! How valid is this photo and what Obama is purported to have said?

I watched that report Davy.As much as I don't want to see bullets and bombs fight this movement, I know that sometimes it's required.

I see, it's a war over oil and gas -.

The Iraq war isn't over, nor is the war with Iran.

If gasoline and other petroleum products didn't control the economy then maybe the 'desert' wouldn't be problematic and expanding.

The Ukraine is a good example of the boarder. NATO expansion is threatening to Russia.

Perhaps new clean energy sources would alleviate some of the conflict.

Australians Just Showed the World Exactly How to Respond to Terrorism With #IllRideWithYou

In the aftermath of the hostage crisis in downtown Sydney, Australians are showing the world they're not caving to racism or Islamophobia. 

On Monday, an armed gunman stormed a cafe in Martin Place, entering a tense standoff with police. After the hostage-taker displayed an Islamic flag in the cafe's window, many of Australia's Muslims are understandably anxious about facing retribution. 

But instead, Australians have banded together on Twitter with #IllRideWithYou, a hashtag showing their solidarity with fellow countrymen scared of being attacked on public transportation. 

The hashtag started simply, with an act of compassion. Tessa Kum, a writer living in Sydney, told Guardian Australia she acted after seeing a tweet from TV reporter Michael James:
