@TimStone yep, love to take away tax exception to stop boycotts

@TimStone I don't even understand the supposed connection between the two things in that tweet. How would changing that designation make people stop boycotting Israel?
 
@murgatroid99 4D chess mate. It's all just 4D chess.
 
@murgatroid99 The Civil Rights Act gave the federal government the power to withhold funding from any educational program that discriminates based on "race, color of national origin"
So they're shoe-horning this in to fit the existing language of the law

@murgatroid99 Why does my desk have a face sized hole in it?

The FAA claims that the analyses tend to overstate the risk, which may be true, but uhh even less frequent crashes due to an inherent problem in the aircraft design would still seem pretty bad here
@TimStone Police are now saying that the gunmen targeted a kosher market

Ontario is using a new law to retroactively dismiss lawsuits it lost: lawyer cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-monday-edition-1.5389171/…
Say it with me kids: Don't. Vote. Conservative.
> It's the first time we know of in Canada that either a province or the federal government has passed a law of this type to retroactively dismiss cases that have already been brought in the courts.
> The Ontario government is asking the courts to throw out at least eight class actions against it. One involves an inmate named Adam Capay, who was held in solitary confinement for most of his 4 ½ years in custody.
 
@Wipqozn wait...what?
That sounds like shit that someone like Orban would do, not Canada

> The market has become so lucrative that Mexican media reported in 2014 it was “fueling piracy and smuggling” to the extent that “cucumber-related crime” had become “worse than drug trafficking.”
What the fuck
> In 2015, a group of men overpowered armed guards outside a refrigerated warehouse in El Cuyo, a town along the Yucatán, and stole 3.5 tons of pre-cooked sea cucumber being stored there.
> In Washington State, an organized sea cucumber poaching ring overfished the species by 250,000 pounds, according to prosecutors. A court sentenced the leader of the crew to two years in prison and ordered a $1.5 million fine.

Mayor Pete would like you to know he had nothing to do with the Loblaw's bread price fixing scandal and I mean he didn't, but would McKinsey have done it more generally and would it have been hilarious cartoon villain levels of wonkiness? Yes

The year in News searches on Google
Incidentally, Sri Lanka was also #1 on the "Where is..." category.
Unfortunately, probably because of the Easter bombings.

Wait, what?
The FBI leaked info to Rudy?

@Yuuki where’d you get this stuff?

@Yuuki no it isn’t
 
@Stormblessed She was also Time's Person of the Year at the tender age of 3.
Incidentally, this was the same year that you were Time's Person of the Year.
And I was also Time's Person of the Year.
"You" were chosen in 2006 as Time magazine's Person of the Year. The magazine set out to recognize the millions of people who anonymously contribute user-generated content to wikis and other websites such as Wikipedia, YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, and the multitudes of other websites featuring user contribution.While the status had been given before to inanimate objects, with the personal computer being the "Machine of the Year" for 1982, as well as collections of people or an abstract representative of a movement, the choice of "You" attracted criticism from commentators in publications such as...

@MadScientist Because people need something to be angry about.
