Daily Derp: These Are Derpy Times

Irvin Leroux is a Canadian hero:

"Irvin Leroux, a 70-year-old former businessman living in Prince George, BC, recently became a hero to the taxpayers of Canada — although few of them know it yet. But among the inner circle of tax practitioners — the lawyers and accountants who fight Canada Revenue Agency every day — his name is quietly circulating. They are blogging about him and referring to him in submissions they make to tax court."

"...I spoke recently to a Toronto tax lawyer, someone who has chosen to make his career litigating against the CRA. Many of his clients have suffered financial disaster like Leroux’s following an audit by the CRA. He chuckled woefully at the judge’s error. If he had been the judge, he said, he would immediately have understood how the large penalties and liens imposed upon Leroux had led to his financial difficulties. “I deal with the CRA daily . . . and I see it on a daily basis,” he said." 



Leadership Houston style:

Annise Parker Retweeted Texan 4 Liberty

No, actually I called you transphobes, but if the shoe fits...-A "

She's the Mayor.

Now that's civil discourse and enlightened leadership we can believe in!

I just want to make an announcement. Because I have a solid sense of everything, if you make my Daily Derp list (I'm working on a Woodchipper Hall of Fame) you need to go back and look in the mirror and ask yourself a few poignant questions.

You may ask yourself, well how did I get here?


Commies don't understand business. Whaaa?

"Students have run the restaurant, named for Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, for 34 years, but they've steered it into the ground. Boasting of "exorbitantly low" prices, the vegan co-op and concert venue that once hosted an up-and-coming Nirvana has cost the student body nearly $1 million over the years, and isn’t kept up to fire or safety codes. The ragtag band of volunteer staffers, who call themselves a "collective," faced eviction in March, but have persuaded the school to save their beloved stronghold."

Your future hand-out experts.

Or Bombardier exec.


Watch this firefighter get a complete facial transplant after being burned. Quite incredible.


Obama says 'political correctness is a recipe for dogmatism'.

Gee, you think?

And Obama made his contribution with Title IX.


Turkish fans boo through moment of silence for Paris.

And they're the good Muslims.

I read some guy claiming they were booing the Greeks. Maybe but their optics cadence is off if that's the case. The bottom line is we see it as booing the murders in France.

Is Turkey really an EU nation?


"Hillary Clinton has made her steadfast feminism a cornerstone of her campaign, but apparently that sisterly love don’t extend to the other side of the aisle.
On the campaign trail Tuesday afternoon, Hillary Clinton laughed when a man said he wanted to “strangle” Carly Fiorina.

Clinton was in Derry, New Hampshire, to announce plans to “modernize” the Department of Veterans Affairs when a man who claimed to have been laid off by Fiorina while she was the CEO of Hewlett-Packard addressed her.
“She says she’s a great CEO,” he said. “Every time I see her on TV, I want to reach through and strangle her.”

Clinton burst into laughter. So did some members of the audience."

Only liberals get the benefit of doubts when they make such statements. Okay?

Hillary. Bah. I won't even bother.


Students aren't as smart as they think they are. At all.  This poor student was exposed for not thinking things through thoroughly on Cavuto (who I can't handle).

From comments:

"-She believes the '1% are hoarding the wealth'. Savings is now hoarding?
-In response to how much is enough she replies. 'enough until...' what is needed. Does she advocate for confiscation beyond this point? Sounds like she is even if she doesn't realize it.
-'Education is innovation'. No, it isn't honey. Many of the most successful entrepreneurs in the West have no formal education - certainly not in things like 'Bi-transgendered, patriarchless Amazon-African societies'. No disrespect but you don't strike me as someone who will go out an 'innovate'. Mobilizing the free-shit mob isn't innovation.
-She's not working class. She's 'incredibly' working class. Her boyfriend is magnificently middle-class.
-And la piece de resistance: 100% taxation is 'on the way to socialism with a different structure' but 90% is not. Got it.
This is what the system is spitting out."



Intolerant forces on colleges are indeed bullying their way.

"First, former Dean Mary Spellman. We are sorry that your career had to end this way, as the email in contention was a clear case of good intentions being overlooked because of poor phrasing. However, we are disappointed in you as well. We are disappointed that you allowed a group of angry students to bully you into resignation. We are disappointed that you taught Claremont students that reacting with emotion and anger will force the administration to act. We are disappointed that when two students chose to go on a hunger strike until you resigned, you didn’t simply say, “so what?” If they want to starve themselves, that’s fine—you don’t owe them your job. We are disappointed that you and President Chodosh put up with students yelling and swearing at you for an hour. You could have made this a productive dialogue, but instead you humored the students and allowed them to get caught up in the furor." 

Too many presidents of colleges and universities are gutless it seems.


Calais migrant camp on fire following Paris terrorist murders.


The changing face of Sweden:

"...Now, this country is a night-watchman state -- each man is on his own. When the Minister of Justice, Morgan Johansson, encourages breaking the law, it means opening the gates to anarchy. Mr. and Mrs. Swede have every reason to be worried, with the influx of 190,000 unskilled and unemployed migrants expected this year -- equivalent to 2% of Sweden's current population. The number is as if 6.4 million penniless migrants who did not speak English arrived in U.S. in one year, or 1.3 million in Britain.
And the Swedes are preparing: demand for firearms licenses is increasing; more and more Swedes are joining shooting clubs and starting vigilante groups. After a slight dip in 2014, the number of new gun permits has gone up significantly again this year. According to police statistics, there are 1,901,325 licensed guns, owned by 567,733 people, in Sweden. Add to this an unknown number of illegal weapons."  
"Even before the massive influx of migrants in the fall of 2015, Swedes felt a need to protect themselves -- and with good reason. Since the Parliament decided in 1975 that Sweden should be multicultural and not Swedish, crime has exploded. Violent crime has increased by more than 300%, and rapes have increased by an unbelievable 1,472%.

The politicians, however, ignore the people's fear completely. It is never discussed. Instead, the people who express concern about what kind of country Sweden has become are accused of xenophobia and racism. Most likely, that is the reason more and more people are taking matters into their own hands, and protecting themselves and their families to the best of their ability."

This is how government fosters chaos by directly challenging the people they represent.

It won't end well.


University of Missouri. What a mess of Frankensteinian proportions.

And then we're treated to such nonsense about what's driving all this madness in the WaPo.

All I see are a bunch of loud mouth'd shnooks posing as students.


Spike Lee reminds me why awards are over rated and meaningless; especially in the arts. Particularly those where actors judge other actors. Yuk.


It's interesting to note that some of these people out on the streets come from privileged backgrounds like the one who yelled at her Yale professor.

Her short profile at The Yale Globalist describes her as an avid traveler who wants to visit at least 3/4 of the world’s countries, a hobby that’s hardly available to the impoverished.

How do suck people even get into Yale? I'm seeing too many stupid people and not enough smart ones out of the Ivy Leagues in the news.

Is Jihadi John really dead?


347 million guns in America.

And yes, that's a good thing.


Selective outrage on campuses.

One can only hope their "anger" will just...dissipate.


Something tells me we'll see with this generation what we witnessed with the hippies. The old saying is 'yesterday's hippies became tomorrow's yuppies.' Basically, the people who wanted to stick it to the man became the "man" themselves - and learned to love it.

I'm not sure what some of these SJW will go on to be but I'm guessing they'll snap out of their outrage deluge and go on to join the 'privileged ranks'.


Most transparent and bipartisan post-racial President ever.



Disgusting behavior by VA police. Boy do we treat our Veterans poorly in North America. It's a national shame and embarrassment really.

"On April 9, 2014, Lewis called the VA pharmacy to refill his prescriptions. Someone hung up on him twice, the lawsuit claims.

It was the beginning of a battle that resulted in his arrest.

Mabel Dea, a clinical pharmacist, helped him on the phone and made his medications available for pickup the next day. She allowed Lewis to vent his frustrations about the poor service he received from the pharmacy, the lawsuit says.

In an interview, Lewis said he remarked, “This is a bunch of BS. I don’t know what the hell is wrong with you people,” and “I need medication and your operators have hung up on me repeatedly.”
He denied threatening to shoot anybody and described Dea as extremely helpful. Later, however, Dea reported him to VA police officials, saying he threatened to shoot his doctor and VA workers.
The next day, after Lewis returned from picking up his medication, Special Agent Chad Joy and Detective William Mossbrooks, each of whom work for the VA police force, arrived at Lewis’ Lomita home, asked to search for weapons, and questioned him about the call.

Mossbrooks, the lawsuit says, used “epithets, curses and other threatening and demeaning language” to try to intimidate Lewis. Mossbrooks referred to Lewis as a “baby killer” and mocked his military service and religion during three hours of questioning, the lawsuit says.

The men returned the next day, pushed Lewis to the floor and arrested him, booking him into the Twin Towers jail. Without his psychiatric medications for PTSD, Lewis suffered anxiety, nausea and other conditions, the lawsuit says. His sister posted bail.

The District Attorney’s Office charged him with making terrorist threats, but when the case went to Long Beach Superior Court, Judge Arthur Jean Jr. dismissed it after hearing testimony at a preliminary hearing, saying the evidence did not support the charges, the lawsuit said.

As Lewis walked away from court, Mossbrooks told him “This ain’t over. I’m going to (expletive) get you,” the lawsuit says.

The VA police officers obtained another arrest warrant for Lewis the next day and took him to jail on Aug. 28, just before Labor Day weekend, the lawsuit said. Lewis’ sister again posted bail, which was raised by $100,000, the lawsuit said."

This Moobrooks sounds like an uncivilized sociopath dickhead.


Well, this awkward. /scratches back of head.

Whatever will it do to the climate narrative.

"New studies flip climate-change notions upside down

"The sun will go into "hibernation" mode around 2030, and it has already started to get sleepy. At the Royal Astronomical Society's annual meeting in July, Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University in the UK confirmed it - the sun will begin its Maunder Minimum (Grand Solar Minimum) in 15 years. Other scientists had suggested years ago that this change was imminent, but Zharkova's model is said to have near-perfect accuracy."

The change that never was. There's nothing to 'flip' because the whole climate-change thing is way overblown thanks to politics and a heavy dose of selective data and heavy manipulation.

What a stupid phrase 'climate-change' is. No fucking shit climate 'changes'. 


Heard Al Michaels say on Sunday Night Football, 'Joe Flacco whose season ended with an ACL'.

Really? How does one's season end because of an anterior cruciate ligament? It's like stating 'Joe Flacco whose season ended with a leg.'

What he meant to say, of course, Flacco tore his ACL at which point 'with an ACL tear' is the correct way to convey the message.

I know. Nit picking.


"Carson’s embattled city clerk, former Mayor Jim Dear, was suspended from work this week after an investigation revealed employees fear he could “snap or go postal” and some have even planned escape routes in City Hall."

 M'yeah. That's not good.


Paul says go Republican if you want less inequality:

"But Paul is right about the concentration of inequality in major urban areas. A 2013 report from Brookings ranked the cities with the most and least inequality; big blue-state cities with Democratic mayors tended to be the most unequal, while somewhat smaller cities in red states with Republican mayors tend to demonstrate less inequality.
Rand Paul concluded his response by saying that,

“the bottom line is, if you want less income inequality, move to a city with a Republican mayor or a state with a Republican governor.”


All I know is if the Washington Redskins give in to the name change that will open the floodgates to all sorts of demands. No one will be safe including the cool Blackhawks name.

And why stop at sports, right?


“The quote that you pulled there is a very different situation,” Earnest told a reporter. “He [Obama] said he was not prepared to put boots on the ground to take out the Assad regime. That was precisely the mistake the previous administration had made … to take down Saddam Hussein.” 



/whistling past the grave yard. "Oh look ma. A death cult."

Oh but don't you see? American-Zionist imperial occupation makes us be a death cult!


A Pennsylvania cop - Lisa Mearkle - tased a man five times and then shot him, basically execution style not once but twice killing the man.

His crime? For running away from the officer for...expired inspection stickers.

Yes. The cop murdered a civilian over a FUCKEN STICKER.

It gets better. She was acquitted

Nice job Pennsylvania.  Take. A. Bow.

War on cops my ass.

Next time you see cop hero worshiping think of that guy Ludovic in Paris. Now he was a bloody hero.


Obamacare imploding all by itself?

"...Mind you, UnitedHealth was a huge backer of the 2009 law. One of its top execs, Andrew Slavitt, then joined the administration to run the health exchanges.
What’s going on here? Basically, the long-feared “death spiral”: Not enough young, healthy folks are signing up for these plans, so insurers are losing money despite the hefty federal subsidies for the coverage. They’re raising premiums to even things out — but that drives even more folks away, so that only older, less-healthy customers remain, driving new losses . . ."

"...And the Obama administration itself last month predicted 2016 enrollment would be less than half of what the Congressional Budget Office predicted in March."



Another Ice Age?

I love that.


The Guardian proves through Zach Stafford there's no such thing as peak derp:

"Men are pretty terrible people. They commit significantly more violent crimes, robberies and assaults each year than women do, according to the Department of Justice. They are more likely to show anger in the workplace and be rewarded for it while women are affected negatively for the same behaviors. They even take up too much space on public transportation when “manspreading”. I could keep going."

No. Don't. You pretty much broke the mold of insidious banality with your opening sentence.


We're winning the war against coal!


So sad how stupid the Gaia cultists have become.


Mike Rowe for President:

(On Melitha Harrith-Perry being troubled about the word hard worker): "...I dismissed her point because it relied upon a gross generalization. To suggest that “hard worker” has become a “conservative buzzword,” is to paint all conservatives with a very broad brush, in my opinion. MHP stated that all conservatives described single-moms as “lazy” and “failures who suck off the system.” She then walked that back when her guest, quite rightly in my opinion, pointed out that she was generalizing."


Government set to kill the vape industry - all based on nothing but fear and little else. They'll try and 'scienctify' their bull shit but don't buy into it. But people will because sea levels or cancer or something.


Tesla, like most subsidized green projects, is a form of 'climate indulgences for the wealthy' as someone put it.

Remove the subsidy and let's see where the chips fall.

This notion we need to subsidize to drive innovations is faulty as it is silly.


Obama says GOP helping ISIS.

He's some piece of work, no?


Speaking of which, the monster the Democrats created called Obamacare continues to unleash unintended consequences at the speed of Speedy Gonzalez.

"Obamacare regulations could be brewing up trouble for small breweries wanting to grow.
Beginning next year, restaurant chains with more than 20 locations nationwide will be subject to new rules requiring calorie information on all menus. Restaurants will have to measure menu items made in-house, but when it comes to products such as beer — which are manufactured elsewhere and distributed to chains — the data must be shipped with the product."

Growth, innovation and productivity will slow because of unscientific garbage like calorie counts pimped and pumped the government who know jack shit about food. I wouldn't trust one single 'expert' pushing this nonsense.


As if that's not enough to point we're in a Dark Age, check this mental decision to cut yoga class at the University of Ottawa. Once again, Canada is importing nutty, left-wing, SJW theories from the U.S. I expect us to surpass them soon enough because, well, the Liberals are in power.

Staff at the Centre for Students with Disabilities believe that "while yoga is a really great idea and accessible and great for students ... there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice," according to an email from the centre.
The centre is operated by the university's Student Federation, which first approached Scharf seven years ago about offering yoga instruction to students both with and without disabilities.


What they pejoratively call 'Cultural appropriation' has been part of humanity for ages dumbasses. We constantly borrow from different cultures. Without it, we don't advance you clowns.

Nothing worse than a presumptuous progressive xenophobe hack.

Kathleen Kane scandal.

There are no good people in this story.


In the 'Bad Ideas' file let's head on over to New Haven, Connecticut.

"Lock your doors or learn your lesson, that’s the message from New Haven police.

Officers in East Rock are starting a pilot program.
“Cars will be checked for visible valuables,” said New Haven City Spokesperson Laurence Grotheer.
If they see a valuable Grotheer says they’ll take it if you car doors are unlocked. They’ll leave a note and you can pick it up at the police station property room.
“I think it might work,” said Audrey who lives in the neighborhood.
“It seems odd,” said Kristen Zalota who lives in East Rock. “It’s an interesting way to combat crime I guess.”
It seems a little invasive, I’m uncomfortable with the idea,” said Corey Hassell.

Audrey is insane I think. She needs to exercise her brain more. I hope Corey is not married to her.

“What they’re doing here is in my judgement is not questionable a 4th amendment violation. They ought to get sued. I hope they do get sued,” said Williams.

He says this pilot program is against search warrant federal laws.

Williams saidm “In effect what they’re doing is stealing these people’s property. They have no right to enter their car at all because just because it’s not locked doesn’t mean it’s not your private property.”

No shit.


Zoolander continues with his on the job training.

He assured Canadians his government could take in 25 000 refugees in a timely and orderly fashion while ensuring all were properly vetted all without an actual plan I might add -  all by December 31. 

When I first heard this I found it odd as to why he was obsessed by this date. December is a Holiday month so how this was going to be achieved was a mystery to me. But what do I know?

Looks like someone pulled him aside and told him 'na-ah' because Canada will now take in 10 000.


35 people with E. coli  linked to Holier than thou Chipotle.


Government mandated calorie counts are doing - surprise - nothing.


So how's that commie $15 hr 'we're owed a living wage' racket going in Seattle?

Not so good.

“Congress hurt the very workers it intended to help.”

Story of progressive intent, no? They'll never learn. I luckily came out of it soon after high school after some simple, straightforward observances. Not because I was smart but rather I was honest with what I was seeing. I felt it was all misguided experiments intent that led to failure because they worked against basic human laws. Not to mention, the subsequent silliness of added layers of regulations and laws to "fix" what wasn't working.

Again, progressives fail at obeying and taking responsibility for the unintended consequences they unleash as a result of their cemented actions.

The comments are excellent for the record.


Oh look. Another surprise. The CBC spins Trudeau's inexperience into a virtue.


Scratch an academic, find a lover of authoritarianism. Simplistic? Sure. But is it that far-fetched? Experts tend to have a bit of a God-complex when it comes to the 'greater good'. And since achieving the greater good is harder with all those pesky notions of individual liberty in the way, it's only natural they admire strongmen and dictators. That's why you see so many on the left write stupid polemics about how they admire people like Fidel and, in this case, one-child policy. It makes them wet with the very idea of being able to pull crap like that here.

The lust for power and control. Except, they delude themselves into thinking they do it for the right reasons. 


"Milwaukee DA John Chisholm was apparently so unhinged by recent criticism that he actually suggested Saturday that Governor Scott Walker be criminally charged with defamation for criticizing him.

So, no, Chisholm really doesn't get the First Amendment thing, does he?"
No one deserves to be told 'suck my dick' than Chisholm. 


Here you go. What the students demand. 



"It costs $6 to visit Karl Marx's grave."

Of course, capitalist pigs will probably make up the bulk of the clientele because Marxists will be too busy protesting how unfair it is while demanding the same rich folks subsidize their right to visit his grave.

I jest but would it shock anyone if they did?


Obama is, to me, right not to get roped into a ground war in Syria.

Problem is, they're slowly sliding into it - and without legal authority. The U.S. will get in there soon enough.


Iran deal not binding. Seems like Iran forgot to sign it. 


The Patriots emasculates teams to the point they whine like little bitches.


There's just too much police abuse going on. From Chicago to Seattle, we're seeing outright murder.

This is where conservatives lose me.

For example, I read David French's explanation defending that cop in Spring Valley who hurled a student across the class room. He could have killed her but there was French - going bad ass derp for law & order. It was shocking.

That she didn't respond doesn't mean it's justified to throw her around like an animal. The guy escalated - and cops seem to excel at this -the situation.

This is where conservatives put on their SJW Retard caps.
War on cops. I don't think so.



Dutch tell refugees to go to Denmark.


Well, they're at it again. The Scare Cancer Brigade now and then like to come in and frighten us off a perceived vice we like to consume. 

Like cigarettes, we've been hearing about how bad red meat is for decades. I admit I'm not the biggest meat eater but I'm not a meathead when it comes to buying into this nonsense.

From comments at Reddit:

"2.5% is the lifetime diagnosis number, with median diagnosis age of 69 (which isn't too relevant to me right now). I was talking in terms of annual occurrence rate, so it's more of an annual return.
You can compound that over a mean lifetime (say, 25 years), but then also factor in the 90% survival rate of colorectal cancer. Let's assume based on your stats that having no family history doesn't help much, that's still an annual mortality of 35/100000 * 0.1, which is 0.0035%.

Compounding that for 25 years, you get 0.09% total death risk in a lifetime. 30% of that is negligible. And like my initial post, it certainly isn't compelling on a per year basis.
EDIT: forgot to mention about the 0.016% - 5-year risk is how I typically look at things, so that brings you to 0.014-0.018%. Regardless, I think it's important to look at the effect size closely when faced with correlations.

It's hilarious how much energy is still being poured into these tiny effects when we see things like nearly 10% of Americans being diabetic and another 30% pre-diabetic. Added sugar consumption is at ludicrous levels, multiple times above what the WHO recommends, yet we're still arguing over bacon.

Sure, you should probably limit processed meat, but it should be second in line to limiting added sugar. There are only so many dietary restrictions that are typically sustainable, so people need to prioritize based on effect size."

Meh. No-nitrates is a hoax.


Toyota has to explain why ISIS uses their products? 

The CEO should ask why American arms always seem to fall into the hands of ISIS.

It may only be a baby carrot today, but tomorrow it may be a stone or heaven forbid a gun. There should be more respect for teachers and it should start in the home. I am not saying the 14 year old should be in prison but strong message should be sent to her and other would-be assailants that teachers and adults should not have to take this treatment without recourse. Whether it is a fine or community service or some other action is up to the teacher and the court system.

Anyone who believes the girl didn't mean to hit the teacher is just stupid. She most certainly meant to do exactly what she did, and the fact it hit the teacher in the forehead tells me she has done stuff like that before. "Baby" carrots are often not baby at all. Most are medium sized ones cut in short lengths, and they are HARD until they're cooked! The girl deserves the assault charge!!!

Nice people. Idiots.

Is it me or do woman have a fetish for authoritarian law & order or what?


This is so awesome it deserves its own independent post.

No socialist party elected in Poland.

Gee, I wonder why socialism is unpopular in those countries.

Problem is the Law & Justice party - as their name implies - seem really old world conservative.

And that may not be a good thing.
