Let me count the ways...

It’s almost as if the government shouldn’t have made all those promises (what was it, 200? 300? No one seems sure of the exact count) on the way to its majority.

RELATED: "Sunny Ways" means...

...never having to say you're sorry...
The Liberals promised a noncombat mission during the last federal election. They also tripled the number of Canadian special forces soldiers on the ground to 200.

That was despite assertions while in opposition that Canadian troops calling in airstrikes on Daesh targets and shooting in self-defence while operating near the front lines were indeed in combat.
Justin Trudeau... liar par excellence.

Make a man a fire and...

...you'll warm him for an hour, but... you set a man afire...

“We have already shifted from attrition tactics, where we shove them from one position to another in Iraq and Syria, to annihilation tactics where we surround them.

Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa. We’re not going to allow them to do so.

We’re going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.”
To paraphrase Mattis, we’re just going to kill them all.

BONUS ROUND: It's a Shura thing...
"I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years."

Q. If I have 10 guns and the government comes to confiscate 1/2 of them, how many would I have left?

A. 46. I lied about the 10 part.

Thomas, in a dissent joined by Gorsuch, countered that the case raises “important questions” – and warned that Second Amendment disputes aren’t getting the attention they deserve from the Supreme Court.

“The Court’s decision … reflects a distressing trend: the treatment of the Second Amendment as a disfavored right.”

Thank you Pierre-Lite

Mohamad Rafia, a Syrian refugee told a Fredericton court that he didn’t know it was a crime in Canada to beat your wife with a hockey stick for half an hour.

“Officials didn’t inform him of the differences in the law in Canada and that more should have been done to educate him,” said the interpreter. “Why didn’t they explain the law?”

If he quits beating his wife isn't that cultural appropriation on his part? He would be appropriating our non wife beating culture.

Journalists for KOB-TV were preparing to film a segment about the city’s unsafe streets on Friday when their vehicle was stolen from a downtown parking lot right before their eyes.

segregation is wrong...of racial segregation...

U of T was quickly on board and contributed funding, says Kelly Hannah-Moffat, vice-president of human resources and equity, who stresses the event is completely student driven.

“I think the initiative being shown by these students is commendable.”
Dear Ms. Hyphenated-Surname... if the university is funding this event, how exactly is it "completely student driven?"

LAST WORD: The death of the "Meritocracy"
Professor Mark J. Perry has posted some important data that show graphically the extent to which racial preferences are used in medical-school admissions. Compared to the average acceptance rate of 16.7% for all applicants with that combination of GPA and MCAT score, black and Hispanic applicants were much more likely to be accepted at rates of 56.4% and 30.5%
Apparently, being the "best & brightest" is no longer a deciding factor in medicine.

Wu San, 40, used a blowtorch to burn the hair off a dead dog on the floor of a house. It was given by a friend who had used it as a guard dog but no longer wanted it because "it would only wag its tail, it wouldn't bark anymore," Wu said.

Cultural Relativity on Parade

Prime Minister Pierre-lite says there's no such thing as "Canadian values"...algeria

An Algerian court sentenced a man who dangled his child out of a 15th-floor window in the capital Algiers to two years in prison on Monday.

The defendant posted on Facebook a photo of him dangling his son out of a window with the caption, “1000 likes or I will drop him.”
Sweet baby jebus.


Down the rabbit hole

In a modern feminist’s ideal world Wonder Woman would make fart jokes and look like Leslie Jones. She’d chop the heads off “Nazis” and then go home with an equally fat and ugly chick. This movie would tank, of course, and everyone involved would be out of a career.

That’s what you get when you appease people who want art to become fueled by spite: bankruptcy.

RELATED2: "Professional" Journalism 101
On Saturday BBC World tweeted the headline, “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem” with a link to an article about the attack. The three Palestinian terrorists, who were targeting Israelis in two different areas, were shot dead after they attempted to murder Israeli policemen and had already killed Staff Sgt. Maj. Hadas Malka.

After Israel’s foreign ministry criticised the the headline, the BBC changed it to: "Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem."
Just another story you won't see on CBC.

LAST WORD: Pierre-Lite dumbs down security
OTTAWA -- The Liberal government's sweeping new security legislation would limit controversial powers that allow Canada's spy agency to actively disrupt terror plots.

"All bodily fluids, solids and toilet paper must be disposed of down the toilet."

"While I appreciate that the TIC population is multi-cultural and different countries have different practices, here in the UK the accepted practice is to use only the WC."

"Given the incidence of people pooing in bins, showers and the likes, can I please remind all Strathclyde University Technology and Innovation Centre occupants that the toilets have been provided for that specific purpose."
Alrighty! Good to know.

A new Ontario Public Sector Employees Union policy will see its members covered for medical marijuana. OPSEU president Warren “Smokey” Thomas said it’s the union’s way of leading by example as OPSEU will start to ask employers to cover medical marijuana for their workers.

Thomas said the LCBO, where OPSEU represents workers, was best suited to provide a socially responsible approach to selling recreational pot.

RELATED: Wynne goes full Librano
Though it is not unusual to buy labour peace in advance of a competitive election, what makes this move particularly galling is the Liberals didn’t even give any pretence of doing right by the taxpayer. In other words, they gave the union what they wanted - with absolutely no concessions.
