Hmmm, lemme see... a bare-chested man walks up to a car on a busy Toronto street during evening rush hour... shoots a guy in the head... and all the reporters can yip about... is the "Science Centre"?

RELATED: The hits just keep on coming
Toronto police said an 18-year-old man was taken to hospital after being shot in the leg in Etobicoke late Wednesday night.

The shooting happened on Windsor Road, near Dixon Road and Kipling Avenue, at around 11 p.m.

It is not clear whether the victim was the intended target and police say the man has not been co-operating with officers.


FROM THE COMMENTS:

"For those that want a Reader's Digest version, the suit that Dr. Dawg / Ms. Mew brought against Mark and Connie was given summary judgement in favor of Mark and Connie and Mark and Connie were also awarded costs, so this little adventure in legal-land is going to end up costing Dawg some kibble."

And, hey... while we're on immigration... try imagine the field day the mainstream media would have if Stephen Harper had a few illegals in the family tree...
rules are for little people

President Obama’s accused drunken-driving uncle — who was busted after a near collision with a Framingham cop — has had a valid Social Security number for at least 19 years, despite being an illegal immigrant ordered to be deported back to Kenya, the Herald has learned.

Mike Rogers, a spokesman for Cleveland immigration attorney Margaret Wong, who is representing Onyango, said he “wouldn’t know how” Onyango obtained a Social Security number. Wong is the same lawyer who represented the president’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, in her fight to win asylum last year.

Reached at her apartment in a South Boston public housing complex yesterday, Zeituni Onyango said of her brother’s arrest: “Why don’t you go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., and ask your president? Not me.” She then hung up on a reporter.
Yup... that'd be the aunt living on social assistance, who recently had her own deportation order overturned.

Rules? We don' need no stinkeen' rules.

Behold your socialist future.


Mission Accomplished...

All that love and hope and renewal... and yet, strangely... the bullets still continue to fly...bright lights, big cityI sure hope the gentleman in question here gets the full throttle, no stones unturned coverage that our professional journalist betters have shown us they can... when they're moved by the holy spirit... deliver.

Please, please, please... let's hear all about the "love of his life" and the kittens he saved... and let's not forget the obligatory photo essays.

Hey... one man's life is just as important as any other... right?

And yet, somehow... I don't think that's gonna happen here.

But don't you fret, digital sucklings... the beast must be fed. CTV's gonna satiate that never-ending hunger with a special retrospective love-fest for longtime CTV shill, Lloyd Robertson...

"Lloyd is an icon, we couldn't be more proud of him and to be able to create this tribute to him is a real privilege."
It's a privilege to "create this tribute?" Seriously?

Yeah, of course... numb with grief

Sorry folks... I've been told I should be more Canadian... more nicey-nice. The fact of the matter is, though... behind all of the sombre media pageantry, it's just politics as usual... but hey, don't take my word for it...

The letter is full of such sophistry as “We can restore our good name in the world” – as though it is a given that Canada has somehow lost that – as well as bumper-sticker slogans of the “love is better than anger” ilk and ruthlessly partisan politicking.
Yeah, yeah... I know... I'm a soul-less troglodyte... but I'll gladly wear that label before I get danced around the room by seasoned political apparatchiks...
The letter was first presented as Layton’s last message to Canadians, as something written by him on his deathbed. Only later was it more fully described as having been “crafted” with party president Brian Topp, Layton’s chief of staff Anne McGrath and his wife and fellow NDP MP Olivia Chow.
It doesn't hurt any that they've got the full, grab your ankles co-operation of virtually all of the national media. You don't wanna squander that moment.

Wake up and smell the propaganda. This isn't about Jack Layton. It's about where this country is headed.

It's enough to make a fella...

...a little cynical...

A group of the biggest commercial banks last year asked the U.S. Supreme Court to keep at least some Fed borrowings secret. Even as the firms asserted in news releases or earnings calls that they had ample cash, they drew Fed funding in secret, avoiding the stigma of weakness.

As the crisis deepened, the Fed relaxed its standards for acceptable collateral. Typically, the central bank accepts only bonds with the highest credit grades, such as U.S. Treasuries.

By late 2008, it was accepting “junk” bonds, those rated below investment grade. It even took stocks, which are first to get wiped out in a liquidation.

Geez, Khadr...Khadr... that sounds so familiar.
The CSIS agents wanted to know how the Khadrs managed to travel between Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Yemen, Syria and Canada during the late 1990s, with no apparent means of support other than their work for Islamic charities.
