Looter: ‘I’m Proud of Us. We Deserve This’

Looter: ‘I’m Proud of Us. We Deserve This’ According to the Washington Post, a looter in Ferguson, Missouri, expressed pride and admiration for looters and said their actions are justified. “I’m proud of us. We deserve this, and this is what’s supposed to happen when there’s injustice in your community,” said DeAndre Smith, whom the Washington Post says was “fresh from looting the QuikTrip.” One officer told the Post that widespread looting has spawned “looting tourism” wherein thieves as far away as Illinois and Texas are traveling to Ferguson to steal. “It’s like looting tourism,” said the officer. “It’s like… View Article

‘There will be no pipeline’

‘There will be no pipeline’ In the heart of Nak’azdli territory, there is a steely resolve — the people are firmly against Northern Gateway The waters of Nak’al Koh are a deep emerald, almost black at times. The forest presses in at the sides — a mixture of spruce, pine, aspen, birch and willow — so thick it seems like a primeval blanket. A fierce rain rises up suddenly, hammering the water and the aluminum boat that Stuart Todd navigates, strengthening the already deep, tangy-earth smell. Todd smiles wryly at the sudden downpour, recounting tales of moose he has seen… View Article

Membership giveaways to go on

Membership giveaways to go on The Progressive Conservative Party can’t stop leadership campaigns from giving out freebie memberships, but new rules could be brought in to govern future contests, a party official said Friday. PC executive director Kelley Charlebois said he has personally advised all three leadership candidates that the party frowns upon the practice, but it can’t force them to stop. “It’s not something we can do,” he said in an interview. “We don’t have the authority to make that sort of edict. At this point in the campaign, I think changing the ground rules … would be considered… View Article

Gene Simmons Speak ‘Goddamn English’

Gene Simmons Speak ‘Goddamn English’ This week, KISS rocker Gene Simmons not only embraced assimilation and the importance of English for immigrants to succeed, he gave a textbook example of how to successfully–and forcefully–do so on hostile turf. He did so with no apologies–and plenty of compassion. In an entertaining interview on HuffPost Live, Simmons said he was “given all the advantages of native-born children” after coming to the country when he was eight years of age, which he said was “astonishing” compared to other nations. Why? Because he learned “goddamn English” and embraced America’s melting pot instead of separatism… View Article
