Dear Readers: Your ever humble, and much maligned reporter weeps for society!
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS has gripped our land and the nuts are running the show kids!
Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has sparked outrage online after sporting a traditional Native American headdress to her niece’s lavish birthday bash.
Kim Kardashian celebrated her daughter North’s first birthday by throwing a festival-themed party in the grounds of her sister’s California mansion.
The event included teepees and a ferris wheel, and Khloe got into the spirit by posing for several snaps in a huge feathered bonnet.
One snap featured her sitting in front of a teepee, and she wrote the caption: “Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water.”
The 29-year-old is not the first celebrity to come under fire for wearing a Native American headdress – Pharrell Williams apologized earlier this month after he donned one on the cover of Britain’s Elle magazine, and One Direction’s Harry Styles also faced a backlash in March when he shared a photo of himself wearing a similar piece on his blog.
Listen boys and girls, if some asshole can be offended by THIS, then I’ve got a few things to say as well!
Since I am of Dutch and German heritage, anyone who wears lederhosen, or puts on a pair of wooden shoes, will be considered a racist….., and insulting my ancestors.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander folks, and I’m just not going to take it anymore!


Well, we might not have any bridges for you to buy, bunky, but BOY, do we have a nice CASTLE for sale!
Castle Moffett in Bucklaw, located approximately an hour’s drive west of Sydney, Nova Scotia, has been on sale for more than a year, but its owner is having trouble finding the right buyer.
The nearly 10,000-square foot home sits on 200 acres of rolling hills overlooking Bras d’Or Lake. The house itself features several wings and sits over top of a babbling brook.
The house was built for Linda Moffett more than 20 years ago by her then-husband, Desmond. She has been renting out many of the hotel’s 10 bedrooms to overnight guests, but is ready to move on. Problem is: the castle still can’t find a buyer.
The castle’s 10 bedrooms are each uniquely decorated with four-post and canopy beds. There are even whirlpools in some of the ensuite bathrooms. There is also a two-storey “great room” on the main floor, as well as a wood-panelled lounge, a wine cellar, and sauna in the “dungeon” basement.
Moffett is hoping to find someone who will preserve the property and keep it going as an inn. But so far, the right buyer hasn’t materialized.
“This building was a labour of love, given to me by my late husband. It has so many great memories in it that I’d like someone special to take over,” Moffett told CTV Atlantic this week.
Moffett has dropped the asking price considerably, from $1.5 million a year ago to an even $1 million currently.

(Reuters) – Annual property losses from hurricanes and other coastal storms of $35 billion; a decline in crop yields of 14 percent, costing corn and wheat farmers tens of billions of dollars; heat wave-driven demand for electricity costing utility customers up to $12 billion per year.
These are among the economic costs that climate change is expected to exact in the United States over the next 25 years, according to a bipartisan report released on Tuesday. And that’s just for starters: The price tag could soar to hundreds of billions by 2100.
Meanwhile: Republicans once again claimed that it’s all bullshit!
Folks, you might remember a few days ago we had an article about “boomerang kids!” Those were kids born during the 80′s that still live with their parents or grandparents!)
WELL, not only does prince William live free of charge in a sumptuous apartment in one of the castles, but he also received an $11-million helicopter from his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, for his 32nd birthday today.
William, heir to the throne behind his father Prince Charles, received a 2008 Agusta A109S Grand helicopter from the British monarch.
It can hold one pilot and seven passengers.
It is equipped with air conditioning and a rear cabinet with a bar.
It says the helicopter costs will be covered by the sovereign grant, which is a sum of money the government gives to the Royal Family to help support the Queen’s official duties.
(The new helicopter will help William and his wife, Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, zip between home and official engagements, and be used to ferry other members of the Royal Family around, the Daily Mirror reports.)
Yup, they sure know how to have a good time down in the States!
“Now that the Iraq and Afghanistan war has wound down, the military has a tremendous amount of surplus,” said Pete Kraska, a criminology professor at Eastern Kentucky University who has studied SWAT teams for 25 years.
But, Kraska doesn’t think it’s a good thing for local cops to inherit those leftovers. Though military-style tactics are necessary to respond to extreme situations—like an active shooter—SWAT teams are predominantly being used to raid private homes in search for drugs.

The decommissioned Defense Department gear is likely just to encourage more of those raids carried out by cops wearing battle fatigues, another item the 1033 program doles out.
Because the Pentagon just started handing out the MRAPs in 2013, it’s unclear how they’re being used. Some SWAT teams just use them for transportation to a raid, but at least one department has used the vehicle to bust through a door. The ACLU wasn’t able to determine how often the vehicles were used by SWAT teams, according to the report’s author Kara Dansky.
Many of the armored vehicles end up in hamlets like Mayberry, which may seem surprising, except that SWAT teams have grown exponentially in small towns over the past 20 years.
Kraska found that 80 percent of small towns had SWAT teams by the mid 2000s, up from just 20 percent in 1980. More than 90 percent of city departments have the special units.
Police say the vehicles are necessary to protect officers in a violent world…………………, Meanwhile, Andy would be horrified!
Well kids,. we get a lot of strange stories here in the Perspective Research Department, but this is one of the best!
“Couple Falls Overboard, Treads Water for 14 Hours”
untitledOn Saturday morning, four fishermen saw birds hovering over the waters seven miles off the Hallandale Beach shore in Broward County, Florida. Usually, their presence signals fish in the water. But not this time. Instead of fish, the men—two of them off-duty sheriff’s detectives and one a firefighter/paramedic—pulled two people, Sean McGovern, 49, and Mellisa Morris, 51, out of the water, reports the Sun Sentinel. The pair had fallen off their 30-foot Island Hopper in Key Largo Friday night around 6pm, and watched their boat, which was in high gear, drift out of reach. They weren’t wearing life jackets, and little else. Officials don’t know what caused the incident, but fisherman Steve Couch’s working theory? “They must’ve been having a good time.”

Never mind the twenty buck cup of coffee at Starbucks kids: Milk in your coffee not cutting it? Perhaps you’d like to drop a pat of butter and some coconut oil in instead.

Oh, and don’t forget the eggs.
coffee_0_1403528149The ingredients are all part of a new trend in coffee drinking, apparently driven in the US by health entrepreneur Dave Asprey. He’s all about improving physical and mental performance, becoming what he calls “Bulletproof.”
The idea for Bulletproof coffee—packed with butter and coconut oil—came from tea made with yak butter in Tibet, he explains.

NEWS FROM TOKYO – The new robot guides at a Tokyo museum look so eerily human and speak so smoothly they almost outdo people — almost.

Japanese robotics expert Hiroshi Ishiguro, an Osaka University professor, says they will be useful for research on how people interact with robots and on what differentiates the person from the machine.
“Making androids is about exploring what it means to be human,” he told reporters Tuesday, “examining the question of what is emotion, what is awareness, what is thinking.”
In a demonstration, the remote-controlled machines moved their pink lips in time to a voice-over, twitched their eyebrows, blinked and swayed their heads from side to side. They stay seated but can move their hands.
imagesECCGD2FNIn a clear triumph, Kodomoroid read the news without stumbling once and recited complex tongue-twisters glibly.
The robot, designed with a girlish appearance, can use a variety of voices, such as a deep male voice one minute and a squeaky girly voice the next. The speech can be input by text, giving them perfect articulation, according to Ishiguro.
Meanwhile: Two leading voices in the world of science and technology warn that robots equipped with artificial intelligence could be leading humanity down a dangerous path.
Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of SpaceX and Tesla motors, told a pair of CNBC reporters that he thought robots were “dangerous.”
“There have been movies about this, you know, like Terminator.”
Despite his reservations, Musk himself has recently invested in an artificial intelligence company.
Meanwhile, writing in The Independent, Stephen Hawking warned there are “no fundamental limits” to what machines may be able to accomplish in the future.
“One can imagine such technology outsmarting financial markets, out-inventing human researchers, out-manipulating human leaders, and developing weapons we cannot even understand,” Hawking writes.
The CBC’s Ron Charles went looking for the world’s most advanced, intelligent machines and also visited a robotics laboratory at the University of Waterloo to find out: should we fear the robot uprising?
