...where did they get their guns? Aren't most guns illegal in Canada? I know they confiscated all the scawwey black guns after a guy pretended to be a policeman and shot people at short range with a handgun, but:
Shootouts such as this one are becoming more and more common in the Greater Toronto Area, often with the exact same MO. Armed attackers show up in a car where they know their targets are going to be and open up on them.You know, it's almost as if criminals have no respect for the law, or something.

"Kindnes is everything" SIC.
LA County Public Health Director is on the record saying that the schools will remain closed until "we are done with the election".
It's all politics. OPEN THE SCHOOLS. OPEN THE BUSINESSES.

Illinois will, of course, go for Biden, regardless of how the people vote. Still, it is vital that the proles of the Peoples' Demokratik Republik of Illinoistan go to the polls to vote for Trump. The more real votes for Trump that exist, the more fake Democrat votes have to be made up...and if it's too big it becomes bleeding obvious what happened and maybe we finally get a national voter ID law.

I really miss Craig Ferguson:
I laughed more at that clip than the entirety of Avenue 5.

"NASA Is Soliciting Bids to Bring Capitalism to the Moon". Surprised they didn't start talking about the "fragile lunar ecosystem".
NASA is soliciting bids to have people collect rocks for them on the Moon.

We don't hide or erase our history except for the parts that don't help us keep blacks on our plantation would have been a better way to phrase it.

The communications manager for the Biden campaign had a meltdown that, by now, I'm sure you heard of. I didn't mention it myself because it's "same-old-same-old", SSDD, for a Democrat to feign outrage at a question he doesn't want to answer.
Mr. Kennedy, was Mary Jo Kopechne pregnant with your child? WHY, HOW OUTRAGEOUS I'VE NEVER BEEN SO INSULTED HOW COULD YOU EVEN SUGGEST SUCH A THING YOU'RE A TERRIBLE EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING AND IT'S OUTRAGEOUS FOR YOU EVEN TO INSINUATE THAT I WOULD HAVE AN AFFAIR YOU'LL NEVER WORK IN THIS TOWN AGAIN MARK MY WORDS
In other words, "Hell, yes!"
The communications manager for the Biden campaign went that route instead of saying, "What? Hell, no, we don't use a teleprompter!" Even if it was a lie. Because that's how politics works. I'd expect that lie from any campaign staffer on any side, given approximately the same circumstances. Even though everyone knows it's a lie, you still say it, because that's the only answer you can give in that situation.
Not blowing out a buttload of bluster through your bum, which just tells everyone that the actual answer to the question is indeed, "Of course we do! How the hell do you think old chowder-head manages such coherent answers??"

"Eighteenth year of a two-year study" tracking race and reason for traffic stops in Illinois. And in those eighteen years, "Numerous studies and analyses of the data hasn't revealed a single instance of racial profiling."
Not one. In eighteen years.
But of course the story is that black drivers are "disproportionately" pulled over for traffic violations: "headlights, expired plates, cracked windshields, no seat belts, no car seats, etc". But they don't get ticketed as often as whites do. The cops cut them a break.
So ABC apparently thinks blacks should get more tickets?

Made chili tonight. Didn't have enough chili powder, about half what I normally use.
Don't tell the Mrs, but I grabbed a packet of McCormick taco mix and used about half of it. It's about 80% chili powder. Put extra black pepper in, added a good dash of Tapatio hot sauce, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
Came out with a good kick but not too much. I think I got away with the substitution.
