I HAVE NO ISSUE WITH ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR ASKING FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS FOR HELP AG Bill Barr has been very open about investigating he origins of the Russia investigation. As part of that effort to determine if the FBI chose to investigate a political opponent of the Democratic party, he asked Trump to reach out to Australia and Italy for help. I don't know why. But to try to spin this as some sort of addendum to Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden is ridiculous. This article even implies that this investigation is ONLY occurring to help Trump, when in reality this investigation is to ensure that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies weren't used for political gain (or attempted political gain) which should concern EVERYONE who doesn't want the FBI and CIA picking winners and losers in our political process.
YOU NOW HAVE TO BE 21 TO BUY VAPING PRODUCTS IN DENVER And I'm sure this will do little to stop the thriving black market kids have been tapping into for a while now. You probably missed the story of a teen murdered by other teens who wanted to rob him of the vape stash he thought they were buying. I didn't. Now Denver thinks it's going to make a dent with this. Good luck to them. Stores in Littleton, Aurora and all the other surrounding communities immediately rejoiced.
IMPEACHMENT IS A BAD BET EVERYWHERE So argues this column and it does it really, really well. This is the sort of thing that has given me pause about whether or not the Democrats know what they are doing here.
THE LONGEST SERVING NYPD COP IS A RABBI And this story is just lovely. He's 83 and has seen it all in his 53 years on the force.
A SIX GRADER CREATES A FAKE HATE CRIME And now her grandparents are my heroes. A sixth grade girl who attends the private school where Mike Pence's wife teaches said that three white boys held her down and cut her dreadlocks while they called her names. Everyone, including the girl's grandparents, was rightfully OUTRAGED. Except it was a lie. After video evidence disproved the girl's story she confessed to making the whole thing up. The grandparents, who were calling for the heads of the boys involved, quickly switched gears and sent out this statement:
“To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused. To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust. We understand there will be consequences and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them. We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.”
I'm guessing this girl is in BIG FAT TROUBLE at home and I hope this is the end of the story. Sixth graders do really, really dumb things but I am confident these grandparents are going to handle it.
iI AM EXCITED TO TALK TO COMEDIAN MATT FALK TOMORROW! So enjoy some more of his comedy today.
AND NOW A SUPER CUTE BABY LAUGHING AT M AND W
SAN FRAN HOMEOWNERS TURN TO BOULDERS TO KEEP HOMELESS PEOPLE AWAY And no, they are dropping boulders on homeless people, but they are putting them on the sidewalks in front of their homes. This to keep drug-addled homeless people from camping out in their neighborhoods. I don't blame them. Homeless advocates say this is cruel but they are oddly silent on why passed out heroin addicts might be a problem for people who spent millions on a home.
NYC SEES 4,000 RESTAURANT JOBS LOST SO FAR BECAUSE OF THE NEW MINIMUM WAGE And Denver would do well to pay attention because this is their future. I am not dazzled by Denver's restaurant scene. There are bright spots, but not enough imo. And now opening a restaurant here is even harder because the Denver City Council is thinking about raising the minimum wage here too. They need to read this first.
NO, THIS WON'T BE "BETTER THAN THE REAL THING" BECAUSE IT NEVER IS Whenever we create something in the lab and it's touted as "better than the real thing" we should all beware. Baby formula, which is mostly sugar and whatnot, was touted as "better than the real thing". It's not. Now scientists say they have created fake blood which is better than the real thing. Uh-huh. I'm not buying it.
RED MEAT IS BACK, BABY! Although for some of us, it never left. Red meat, sausage and bacon are back on the Good List when it comes to nutrition. This is why you either have to pay attention to EVERYTHING in nutrition news or NOTHING.
DON'T EXPECT LIZ WARREN TO SIPHON UP THE SILICON VALLEY MONEY Because Mark Zuckerberg was caught on tape saying he's fight her plan to break up the big tech companies. She responded by doubling down.
THIS ONE IS GOING TO SEND DAVE OVER THE EDGE Because the Chicago Mayor has erased overdue book fees at the Chicago Public Library. That sound is Dave's head exploding.
FOR A CONSENSUS THERE SURE ARE A LOT OF SCIENTISTS WHO DISAGREE And 500 scientists signed a letter to the UN Secretary General asking him to consider an alternative view of climate change. Of course the UN Sec Gen has declined to add these scientists to the schedule.
LET'S RAISE TEACHER'S SALARIES! BUT THEY HAVE TO GO TO A 401k RETIREMENT PLAN I want teachers to make good money. Unfortunately as this article points out, too much of their money is tied up in the very generous retirement plans that MOST TEACHERS don't even get. Should we ask teachers to make a trade off? More money but you have to plan for your own retirement? It might be the only thing that saves the pension system.
