Every once in a long while...

...the New York Times screws up and lets one through...

Michael Nutter, a former Philadelphia mayor, who is black, said that society would not be so complacent if whites were dying from gun violence at the same rate as blacks.

Mr. Nutter, now an urban policy professor at Columbia University, spoke out repeatedly about the disparity during his eight years as Philadelphia’s mayor — and was accused of casting African-Americans in a bad light. “Some people got upset,” he said. “I said, ‘I’ll stop talking about it when you stop killing each other.’”
That whole "gangbanger" thing might not be exactly as you imagined it to be...
Investigators describe fluid, sometimes tiny bands of teenagers and young adults bound by illegal activity. “They are groups of friends who rob and shoot each other,” Detective Greg Gehring said. “That’s just what they do.”

In a defense of President Obama’s order compelling schools to allow access to restrooms on the basis of gender identity, the Charlotte Observer editorial board compared the discomfort of school-aged girls seeing male genitalia in locker rooms to the discomfort of white people being around black people in post-segregation America.

He is the city's 30th murder victim of the year. Last year at this time there were 15 homicides in Toronto.
Whaddaya wanna bet this guy doesn't get a special press conference from the Chief of Police?

UPDATE: Murder Victim Id'd

And it sounds as though he was living on borrowed time...
Ramsey Whitefish, the city’s 30th murder victim of the year, was found lifeless in a pool of blood on Gloucester St. just after midnight Wednesday. Back on April 1, 2004, he was among a small group of friends partying in a Sherbourne St. apartment — a booze-fueled night that ended with the vicious killing of Mariana Ivancicevic.

Hey, Canada...

How do you like your immaculately coiffed feminist manchild now?

“I have never seen any member of the House act towards another member or members as he just did,” Julian said. “Physical force in this House is never permitted, it is never welcome, and it is entirely inappropriate.”
No, you dumbstick... it's not inappropriate... IT'S CRIMINAL.
NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau said, “I was elbowed in the chest by the prime minister, and then I had to leave. It was very overwhelming. I missed the vote because of this."

Trudeau refused to speak with reporters as he left Parliament and simply said he would “talk about it later.”
Hey, the first rule of "fight club" is that you don't talk about "fight club." Waiting for all kinds of excuses from the mainstream media in three, two...

RELATED: Just not ready...
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of "manhandling" Opposition Whip Gord Brown and elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the House of Commons as MPs gathered for a vote on the government's assisted-dying bill Wednesday afternoon.

The prime minister later said he felt Brown was talking too slowly ahead of the vote.
Don't upset the God-King, ye lesser mortals.

LAST WORD: Be careful what you wish for...
Tom Mulcair, the New Democratic Party leader, also sounded the alarm, saying the Tories “on their worst daydidn’t try to stifle democracy in the way the Grits are now attempting.
Missing bad ol' Stephen Harper yet?


Who deserves more scrutiny here?

Kathleen Wynne for offering the bribes... or the Teacher's Union for taking it?

TORONTO - Ontario gave teachers' unions approximately $80.5 million since 2000, including $22 million with "no strings attached," the province's auditor general said in a report released Wednesday.

Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk also says she found no evidence of governments anywhere else in Canada doing the same thing.
So what do the Liberals do when they get caught?
In response to the report, the Ministry of Education has told the AG it does not play to pay union bargaining costs in the future.
You get the government you deserve, Ontario.

"Almost half of weed-smoking Canadian drivers say that they can safely operate a vehicle while stoned. Teenagers who drove under the influence of the drug said it either improved their performance behind the wheel or was no hindrance."
Who am I to argue with the average Canadian teenage stoner?

That's a whole new reality TV series

Based on his research, New York Times best-selling author, award-winning journalist and Jenner biographer Ian Halperin believes that Jenner will de-transition in the next couple of years, telling the public how difficult the transition was, but noting that she was happy to help raise awareness about transgender rights.
So that's why Bruce has been hanging on to that pesky penis. It's the best of both worlds... he gets to be a Kardashian sister (at least for a bit) without actually lopping off his junk.

Heck, as long as we're here... let's ask a Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School...
Based on the photographic evidence one might guess Bruce Jenner falls into the group of men who come to their disordered assumption through being sexually aroused by the image of themselves as women.

He could have been treated for this misaligned arousal with psychotherapy and medication. Instead, he found his way to surgeons who worked him over as he wished.

Afterglowmeshi...

..the nagging feeling that your "victory" might not be all that it could be...

When I went to the CBC for help, what I received in return was a directive that yes, he could do this, and yes, it was my job to let him. The relentless message to me, from my celebrity boss and from the national institution we worked for was that his whims were more important than my humanity or my dignity. So I came to accept this. I came to believe it was his right.

But when I spoke to the police at the end of 2014, and detailed my experiences with Mr. Ghomeshi, they confirmed that what he did to me was, in fact, sexual assault.

Public transport has been chosen for the Islamic re-branding in London, Manchester, Leicester, Birmingham, and Bradford – all UK locations with high and growing Muslim populations, reports the Sunday Times.

That the announcement of the new campaign came the day after London crowned its first Muslim leader, Mayor Sadiq Khan. Islamic Relief called it a “nice irony” that the two events coincided.
I can't wait to see what happens when Sharia Law collides with that whole "man trapped in a woman's body" dealio.
