Turns out grandpa was right, whisky IS the cure for what ails ya
Remember grandpa? Always smelled of cigars and the smoky aroma of a nice bourbon or scotch whisky (I’m Canadian, so we don’t add in the letter ‘e’ into the name of our spirit of choice, so we can add it to our drunken “eh’s” instead). He’d always tell us that booze was the cure to everything, and fuck me, he was right.
I mean, it makes sense if you’re thinking about how shitty life is and you want to feel happy, or you just want to forget everything, but according to an article in Thekitchn, it’ll knock that flu right out of your system and beat into submission, Rocky-style.
As it turns out, whisky is the perfect cough medicine for grownups, and I’m heading out to the liquor store now to stock up, in case I get a sniffle in the middle of the night. You know, as a precaution.
George Soros Foundation’s President Says Facebook Needs Congressional Oversight
The president of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations called Thursday for congressional “oversight” of Facebook after a report that Facebook used an opposition research firm to investigate Soros.
Facebook’s outgoing head of communications, Elliot Schrage, took responsibility Wednesday for using Definers, a right-wing political research firm, to look into whether Soros funded Facebook’s critics. Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg said last week he and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg “didn’t know” about Facebook’s use of Definers until he read about it in a New York Times report.
Hillary Clinton: Populists ‘Yearn’ to be ‘Told How to Live’ by a Dictator
The failed Democratic presidential candidate claimed that the growing populist movement is down to voters’ psychological and moral defects causing them to “yearn” for a dictatorship.
The comments appeared to be another thinly veiled attack against President Donald Trump and his supporters, where she tried to frame him as a tyrant who has brainwashed his voters.
Alberta government ‘censored’ Indigenous book, undermining reconciliation in schools, author says
A prominent Indigenous author says the Alberta government’s decision to turn the page on one of his graphic novels used in schools is undermining its commitment to reconciliation.
David Alexander Robertson says a teacher, who had students read Betty: The Helen Betty Osborne Story for years, reached out on social media last month after noticing it made Alberta Education’s not-recommended list for classrooms.
Parkland School Shooting Commission Calls For Code Red Alarms And Bleeding Control Kits
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission — a panel created by the Florida Legislature that includes parents of slain students — met for four days last week in Sunrise. The commission is chaired by another county’s sheriff. It reviewed a presentation of more than 600 slides detailing what law enforcement officers did practically every second after confessed killer Nikolas Cruz fired the first shots at the school.
It is now crafting a report with recommended actions for preventing the next school shooting, a document that’s likely to be considered by education leaders around the country.
LILLEY: Trudeau repeats tragic liberal mistake by bailing out mainstream media
Justin Trudeau may not be aware but his plan to help out Canada’s struggling mainstream media follows the path laid out by a conservative icon to a T.
Ronald Reagan famously said that liberals followed this pattern, “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”
Well after taxing Canadian media in ways their foreign digital counterparts have never been taxed, after regulating them in ways their foreign competition has not faced, the Trudeau Liberals are looking to subsidize the media.
