In a move widely touted as "Marijuana Legalization", the criminal organization calling itself "The Canadian Government" is shuttering a substantial number of brick and mortar small businesses instead intending to capture the retail market themselves (archived). Unlike Uruguay whose government subsidizes the distribution of four types of standardized marijuana in the name of public health, the Candian government is instead selling anything and everything cannabis that they can get their hands on in an attempt to become a Walmart or Amazon. They appear to have no intention of letting the dispensaries which long served medical patients cutting into their margins now that the Canadian Government is moving from the activity of governing to the business of retailing.
There is much irony in the numerous Canadian potheads celebrating government weed while failing to mourn the fallen dispensaries which played a substantial role in "legalizing" their pot.
While in Canada's marginal neighbor to the south, the USG.DEA and USG.CIA have managed to play a substantial and profitable wholesaling and importation role in the drug market for decades, those agencies had sufficient shame to try concealing their intervention and supression of private enterprise in favor of promoting their own revenue generation efforts. Canada lacks even that capacity for shame.
Following a GOP event in Manhattan, 9 members of Vice media founder Gavin McInnes's "Proud Boys" alt-Right fan club are facing assault charges after they were ambushed leaving the event (archived). The NYPD provided and enforced seperate egress paths from the event for Antifa NPC mobs and other parties in attendance. Six antifa aggressors doubled back along the other route after exiting the high density police zone waylaying the group of 9 Proud Boys, impeding their travel, and initating violence. The Proud Boys successfully defended themselves in the encounter.
Pantsuit media raised hell framing the event as a "white supremacist" attack on the part of the largely hispanic group of Proud Boys leading to arrests, charges, and what will surely be a very expensive ordeal for New York Pantsuits. Members of the defeated Antifa NPC Mob are not cooperating with police for reasons.
The United States Army is looking for candidates to directly commision into their organization at the rank of Colonel under their new 'Cyber Direct Commisioning' program aimed at addressing their cybersecurity disability (archived). Under the US Army rank structure, Colonel is the most senior field officer rank. Following the legal minimum time in grade requirements, it would take a an officer entering the US Army normally 13 years to rise from the entry level officer rank to Colonel, but 22 years is the typical time to rank with half of candidates in the predecessor rank of Lieutenant Colonel failing to be selected for promotion to Colonel.
The US Army has already issued direct commisions to fill positions for lower ranks than Colonel under this cybersecurity recruitment program. Once they do find a Colonel in the wild to commision, it will surely be great for morale.
A family in the Congo has manage to recover the corpse of a loved one who recently fell to Ebola from public health authorities (archived). Five family members talked the competent authorities into allowing them to don protective gear and drive the hearse. On the way to the government approved burial site, the hearse deviated from the planned route and an ensuing pursuit by their police escort was thwarted by local crowds. The next day representatives of the family went to these same public health authorities, apologized, offered to submit to vaccination, and returned the body swearing they neither opened the casket nor the body bag. Whether or not they actually exposed their loved one's body to shepherd their soul into the afterlife according to local customs is unknown.
Over on Airstrip One, a government "Advertising Standards Authority" has banned the continued airing of an advertisement featuring a healthy, athletic, human, and human shaped female with a body mass index of 18.8 by asserting that the size 8 model is "unhealthily underweight" (archived). The hamplanet censor squad cited visible ribs and muscle definition during athletic movements as evidence the 5'10" model was unhealthily underweight during those scenes.
We desperately await the UK's entry of "healthily weighted" athletes into international sporting competitions.
Pantsuit media has intensified their slander campaign against Kim Kardashian's husband: the rapper, genius, and voice of a generation Kanye West as the friendship between Kanye and US President Donald Trump has continued to grow and flourish. The latest slander thrown at the father of Kim Kardashian's children by the media are accusations that Kanye is an "incel" or involuntarily celibate man, in the tradition of Elliot Rodger.
The forces of Pantsuit earlier this year tried and failed to replace the #WOKE voice of a generation with a mere minstrel performer happy to stay on their Pantsuit Plantation. In the game of "their" democracy, the Pantsuit and their NPC allies are distressed that Black American support for Donald Trump keeps rising as his presidency continues, and they lash out at any prominent Black American who challenges their party line.
Hussein Bahamas promised prison reform. Trump is doing (archived).
Hussein Bahamas promised drug law reform. Trump is doing (archived).
It is as though Pantsuit and their NPC allies think Black America is dumb while they are the ones flailing in their efforts to supress truly woke American heroes like Kim's hubby.
The Five Eyes international spy cartel has announced through an "exclusive report" placed in the Reuters wire service, that they have been coordinating on against China since the beginning of this year (archived). Historically that has not worked out so well for them.
Mikrotic Routers have been popular targets for all kinds of shennanigans recently, and yet another round of vulnerabilities has dropped (archived). This suggests the lulz won't be ending any time soon.
Reports are emerging from PC makers that they are seeing a shortage of Intel CPU parts (archived). Representatives of the firm are claiming that their production lines are being prioritized for "high performance" parts.
Yesterday it was announced that Google will abort its 7 year old child, the not very social network "Google Plus" following a databreach. Google Plus was preceeded in death by Google Buzz, the awkward twitter clone with a weird user interface, which was Google's first venture into social networking. After Google Buzz spent 22 months failing to gain traction, parent Google aborted Buzz in favor of Plus, which instead was a Facebook clone with an awkward circle centric user interface. The late Linus Torvalds kept an awkward approximation of a blog on the platform.
