We're Number 1!

Although American kids seem to be in terrible shape compared to the rest of the Western World, and although the article only mentions Canada once, it was enough!

Whoo hoo!!!

Way to go, l'il dudes!

Problem Solved!

A few days ago the Associated Press said they would no longer use the expression "illegal immigrants" when referring to illegal immigrants. See Oh My Gravy! for a refresher.

They hadn't decided what they would call them, but certainly not illegal immigrants.

Well, looks like they've solved their problem.....

They will now be known as "immigrants in the country without permission".

Just rolls right off the tongue.

And with all the recent rallies about creating a pathway to citizen ship, I guess it proves the old adage really is true;   "it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission."

I'm sorry if this offends anyone.  (See how that old adage works)

Oh My Gravy!

Just one day after I applaud the US for being less politically correct than Canada is on crime they (or at least the Associated Press) come out in full PC mode.

The AP has decided to ban the expression "illegal immigrant".

What they will call them hasn't been decided yet.  But "illegal immigrant" is deemed,  well, too demeaning.
"Undocumented immigrant" is also out.  Because, the AP says, people may have lots of documents.  Just not the right ones.
(I'm not making this up!)
However, they have convinced themselves that they can use the expression "people immigrating to a country illegally".
Hate the sin, love the sinner.
One person said, to support this change, instead of "murderer", the concise "someone illegally ceasing another person's life" is now preferred.
Needless to say, the Associated Press has had lots of help in coming up with replacement labels know.....
"Uninvited Guests" have been suggested by some.
The best one, from Jay Leno, is "Undocumented Democrats".
What a bunch of doofuses!
Sorry.  What a bunch of people participating in a process of extreme dooficity.

Thank Goodness For Canadian Justice!

Three "youths" were seen jaywalking by this officer.  When approached, one "youth" pulled out a gun and shot at the officer.

Because the "youth" was "stupid", he had used the wrong bullets and the gun misfired.

Nonetheless, he still tried to kill the police officer.

Police also claim he is a member of a gang, the Vaughan Road Bloods.

"No, I'm not."

Then they went to his own Facebook page and showed him a picture of the gang, with him in it.

"Ohhhh.....that gang.""

So when sentencing came, at least the crown prosecuting attorney and defence lawyer agreed on one thing; the recommended sentence. 


Good for them.  Send a message.  And then let them know if they ever do this again, it will be months of probation! Not weeks. And the judge should also give them a very stern look.

They are transferring him him - quickly I hope - to a lower security facility while the judge ponders the recommendation.

Now, reading this article from down here in the southern US, I can almost guarantee you the sentence for attempted murder of a police officer would be a liiiiittle bit different.....

Only In Naples

Joined a fitness club while away. (I'm sorry, they call it a "Health Pavilion")

Now I can understand that you may not be able to walk or bike to your fitness club.

But if you don't even want to walk in from the parking lot......  Ouff....

For those not in the know, people in Naples Florida are;

  i) very rich
 ii) very old and, apparently,
iii) very lazy.

But it is only two bucks.    Hmmmm......

Are those stairs in the background?!   OMG!
