No Joke: AP Wonders If US Should Shoot Down North Korean Missiles Headed For Guam

Leave it to the wire service providing national and world news to hundreds of American newspapers to leave people scratching their heads. On Thursday night, the Associated Press (AP) tweeted a confusing question about whether the U.S. military “should” take action to shoot down North Korean missiles if they’re headed towards Guam or any U.S. state.

Latest microaggression: Seats in the classroom that are ‘too small for many people’

Just when you thought all the possible microaggression scenarios humanly possible had been called out, more pop up.

The latest offensives to avoid come courtesy of The New School, a private university in New York City. It has published an extensive list of “microinsults,” “microassaults” and “microinvalidations” to avoid, including ones specific to academia, like this one:

“Seats in the classroom / auditorium / office are too small for many people.”

Canada had 2 meetings with North Korean officials this week

Canada’s foreign affairs minister and the envoy who secured the release of an imprisoned Presbyterian minister have both held talks over the last few days with senior North Korean officials about the deteriorating international situation.

Chrystia Freeland said Friday that she met with Ri Yong-ho, her counterpart from Pyongyang, during a meeting of Asian-Pacific foreign ministers last weekend in Manila.

It was not a formal meeting, only a brief exchange on the sidelines.

The Islamic Trade in European Slaves

It is common knowledge that for over a thousand years, Arab and Muslim slavers took enormous numbers of men, women and children from sub-Saharan Africa. What is not so well known is that they took equally large numbers of people from Europe. As with Africa, Arab slave-taking in Europe began in the seventh century — shortly after the rise of Islam — and continued virtually without interruption into the modern epoch.

Toronto’s 1st pop-up safe-injection site set to open without city’s blessing

Toronto harm reduction workers are taking matters into their own hands by opening the city’s first unregulated pop-up safe-injection site following a spate of deaths in and around the city — three in the last 24 hours.

The Toronto Harm Reduction Alliance is set to open the site Saturday at a “traditionally underserved” location in downtown Toronto, front-line harm reduction worker Matt Johnson told CBC News.

    “can’t hurts us if we declares” is more better to understand.

  • The “across the map from us” comment is really funny. I didn’t know some people have not yet realized the world is round.

    • Watchman

      Wait…wait…the world is round?

      I’ve got some turtles that need to explain themselves, once I find an abseiling rope long enough to lower myself down off the edge of the world to have a long talk with them.


      • Muslims still believe the Earth is flat, and the Sun goes around under it at night.

        • Watchman

          The sun sets in a muddy pool in the West. ref: Surah 18:86.

          But you are right, the devout muslims believe that the world is flat.

        • Tooth&Claw

          Not just Muslims, many other people believe they’ve been mislead that the world is round and an active hoax is being propagated.
          People are weird.

          • Maybe so, but Muslims are now being touted as ‘scientific’ in some TV programs! The evil media are going that far in their betrayal.

      • Slickfoot

        Terry Pratchett was a genius.

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      It was a troll account.

      • a good laugh, anyway.

        • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

          Yup, I love the troll accounts when they are done well.

          I got fooled briefly by the Sarah Huckabee Sanders account.

    • tom_billesley

      Blasphemer! Flatness denier!

      • Aargh! I’ve had it!

      • Bla Bla

        Add that to the list of ‘micro-agressions’!

  • ontario john

    And now the Sunday Toronto Star. Full front page pictures and story that Trump caused the violence in Virginia. Trump is a racist bastard. But then, Heather Mallick and the Star thinks everyone outside of down town Toronto is a racist bastard. Also story that muslims are wonderful, a rant that indians need veto power over any development in Canada, story on how muslims become terrorists because they are simply poor and can’t afford wedding dresses.

  • TJ

    Trump’s tweets can be used as evidence in court per the EO lawsuits
    It could be spun by some lawyer that the alt-right terrorist can’t get a fair trial if even the POTUS is bias againt him and his ilk. Trump still should have a stronger morning tweet today.

  • tom_billesley

    Medicine has advanced beyond “primum non nocere” (first, do no harm) to “primum nocere redigendum” (first, reduce harm).

  • tom_billesley

    What did Justin barter for the release of the minister?

    • Core identity.

    • Waffle

      Canadian resources — oil & gas, assorted industrial minerals, PMs (gold, silver). BTW, the pastor was treated extremely well — he was high value.

    • Bla Bla

      Damn, now that I think of it, in light of the khadr payout, what did he give?

  • Barrington Minge

    Hmm. Does this not point at a basic inadequacy of the US education system?

  • tom_billesley

    India plans to deport 40,000 “Rohingya” muslim illegals.
    A lot of them have moved to the far side of India, to the state of Jammu and Kashmir which muslims are trying to wrest from India.

  • DMB

    There is nothing safe about injecting poison into one’s body. People need to get that therm out of their vocabulary and start calling them harm reduction sites. No matter how much positive spin this gets this is still causing harm to the user injecting heroin into their bodies. Only this will kill them at a slower rate and reduce the chances of contracting hiv/aids.

    • tom_billesley

      Even if there was such a thing as a safe dose, addicts are never happy using the same dose for long without increasing it.

    • Waffle

      Not really, but whatever you want to call them, they do present employment opportunities for the poverty industry gang and assorted SJWs. Besides, if you’re going to provide shooting galleries for addicts, at least it gets them out of the parks and off the streets so they don’t offend the tender sensibilities of the “nice folk”.

      • Bla Bla

        Unfortunately, it tends to then concentrate the criminal activity that feeds these addicts. Seeing that these poverty industry types are distributing drug paraphernalia, they should be immediately arrested. Enough of this BS with laws only being enforced on the taxpaying public while every other virtue signaling scumbag gets a pass.

        • Waffle

          The current spate of deaths are not “overdoes”, but from laced heroin. So who is lacing the junk and with what? The cops, with all their forensic capabilities, surely have a good clue, so what is really going on here? (aside from providing pearl-clutching copy to distract one from the invasion of our country)

          • deplorabledave

            At the rate their offing themselves here in Vancouver, there will soon be no need for these shooting galleries.

          • Waffle

            Maybe that’s the point.

          • Tooth&Claw


          • Bla Bla

            The leftists are always about distracting their victims in order to deflect attention to their malevolent deeds.

  • andycanuck

    Perhaps strung on a vine between two swallows?

  • Liberal Progressive

    Thank goodness Chrystia Freeland was there to let North Korea have all the US portions of Norad maps in Canada’s position in trade for a promise from NK not to bomb Canada!

    • Exile1981

      She got a handful of magic beans a promise they will be nicer to transgenders out of the deal.
