Police were investigating a shooting in Brooklyn Saturday afternoon that left a man and woman dead amid a spike in violence across the city.

It's East New York. Status quo ante. Nothing to see here.

A team of medics from Istanbul said the 'anatomical evidence for the presence of the G spot' was 'scant, insufficient and weak' (fle photo).

It exists. Next time, don't ask scientists named Eugene, Poindexter, and Portfellow.

The days of the good old ‘transatlantic partnership’ have passed, Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has admitted, adding that even the Democrats returning to power is unlikely to automatically bring those days back.

It was only supposed to be an alliance that kept the Soviets at bay. The Germans coasted on our military budget for 70 years. They grew to like their social benefits that they could afford because of that. Now they're butt-hurt that Trump is telling them to pay at the same moment the AfD is gaining seats because Germans are rejecting Merkel's immigration policies.

Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla defended his friend, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, on Saturday night, saying "context" should be taken into consideration when judging an actor or comedian doing a character in blackface.

Calm and reason won't bring the idiots back down to earth. They're too radicalized. Their energy only escalates to violence. We've already seen it happening. They are a perfect echo of the Maoist Red Guards from the Cultural Revolution. If they are not stopped now, they will kill more if they get more power or absence of a response.

As the Black Lives Matter movement becomes an influential political force in the wake of George Floyd’s death, some are wondering if its followers -- frustrated by a two-party system that refuses to heed its calls -- could ultimately organize their own political party in the United States. 

They should. Then they can split the Left and keep the Democrats from winning seats. The Democrats need to win no more seats and in fact must lose all they have.

Revenues tumbled 38 percent to $6.3 billion following huge declines in sales in most of the world.

I suspect this comes down more to the effect of the coronavirus than any backlash against Nike per se. Some of us vote with our pocketbooks, but that doesn't seem to be widely practiced among American consumers.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said that he backed a request to remove a statue of Teddy Roosevelt that has long been considered a symbol of systemic racism.

Teddy Roosevelt broke up the Trusts (monopolies), stopped child labor, started the FDA, the national park service, built the Panama Canal, and won a Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating an end to the Russo-Japanese War. Later, as champion of the Progressive (Bull Moose) Party he pushed for Social Security, a 40-hr workweek, and many other reforms that we take for granted today.

This is the guy whose statue they want to rip down? His face is literally on Mt. Rushmore; are they gonna try to dynamite Mt. Rushmore, too?

After kneeling to protesters, the home of Olympia Mayor Cathy Selby was vandalized by protesters. She called it "domestic terrorism"

The BLM and Antifa terrorists won't stop until they are physically stopped. The government is allowing it to happen, which means when Americans rise up they will go down, too. That's what happens when elites and their lackeys in government play games with the citizenry.

It's really no threat. The publishing industry has been shedding jobs for the past two decades. I know a half dozen in NY that were laid off and are only brought back for occasional contract work. They're desperate and will take anything. In fact, the only reason that the publishing industry hasn't been hit harder is directly down to the popularity of JK Rowling's books. So "cancelling" her is tantamount to "cancelling" what remains of that industry. In other words, the publishing staff in the story are fucking stupid.
