I’ve been getting too long winded, I do go on, so let’s try laconicity.
Some of the most unsurprising stories ever.
into allegations of corruption in its Chicago contract.
Squeezed by historic funding shortfalls, school districts across the state in recent years have been illegally dipping into cafeteria funds meant to provide meals to poor students to pay other school expenses,
The federal government on Friday revealed the 30 per cent minerals resource rent tax (MRRT) on the super-profits of iron ore and coal miners raised just $126 million in its first six months.
It was projected to generate revenue of $2 billion by the end of 2012/13
That one includes the battle cry of the 21st century.
“How are we going to pay for the things that we need in this country?”
These need more than just “well duh”.
They’re burying the lede on this one.
Did Hamas dispatch 7,000 militiamen from the Gaza Strip to Egypt to protect President Mohamed Morsi, who is currently facing a popular uprising?
Alternate headline: Terror attacks against Israel expected to drop.
Now this isn’t funny, but if you look, you can see something that’s very fucking endily funny.
So we’ve all seen the LA cop who loved lefty rhetoric and hated the right people is on a killing spree and the rest of the LA police dept is as well. They mistakenly shot two women thinking it was the killer’s truck.
So how can that get endily funny?
That’s a Toyota Tacoma, folks. The Nissan Titan is a full sized truck. The Tacoma is a small truck. These panicky morons opened up on the first truck-like vehicle that came down the street. They didn’t ID the vehicle, they CERTAINLY didn’t look at who was in the truck, as the suspect was a black male and the two people shot were females.
Get that? They were looking for a Nissan full size and they shot up a Toyota compact, the colors would, at best, be barely similar (different companies) and the people in the car were women and not a black man.
How fucking horribly, darkly, funny is it that this is good news?
Imagine if the guy they’re hunting had stopped at Circle K for a pack of smokes and since he’s a cop and killing cops he’s feeling god-like so he leaves the truck running as he goes in the store. Now a different black man sees this, this one is a choir singer/multiple felon, and also notices that he’s about the same height and has a similar hair cut as the man leaving the car.
So this different yet similar black man steals the truck and gets stopped by the police, he doesn’t understand what’s going on and the cops are freaking so he gets shot.
How long before the Reverends Al and the rest of the race industry shows up and causes a riot or three?
See? It’s good that they shot two women in a dissimilar truck!
That’s not laconic, the people in charge of the previous bit have been sacked.
Glenn Reynolds rains on my parade.
Canada’s Near Earth Object Surveillance Satellite, scheduled to launch from India next month, will hunt for asteroids that could strike Earth.
Man they’re just no
That’s too laconic. The people who sacked the previous people have themselves been sacked.
The post has been completed in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute
A Chinese court on Friday sentenced a man to 13 years in prison for inciting an ethnic Tibetan monk to set himself on fire, the latest punishment meted out in a crackdown as Chinese authorities try to stop a string of self-immolation protests that has reached almost 100 incidents.
Brilliant! The threat of jail is sure to stop people who are bent on burning themselves to death.
