    In California thieving is officially okay. No, no, they won't say it is. But it is, nonetheless. For if what a person steals is worth less than a nine hundred and fifty bucks it goes pretty much unpunished. Maybe there'll be a fine. Usually not even that. Thieves like this. The victims of the thefts usually not so much. This past week a young couple who had just few months back moved into a new home in the small city of Visalia, CA, were arrested. That for doing something that the state of California's legal codes still sees as a no-no and...

    When Karly Tardiff parked her bike before heading into work in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on August 13, she wasn’t expecting to do sprints until her CrossFit class later that afternoon. After all, the 28-year-old fundraising professional—who is the co-leader of a local Winnipeg running club called the Badass Lady Gang and trains for 5Ks and half marathons—was wearing a sundress and wedges, with her workout gear packed for later. “I commute to work every day, and then I bike off to CrossFit,” she told Runner’s World. Shortly after her lunch break, though, Tardiff’s normal routine was interrupted by a frantic maintenance...

The video then shows one of the suspects running through a cow pasture as the animals chased and surrounded one of the suspects, who was eventually captured by police.

    Now, let me say a few things about the current hysteria in the MSM surrounding the Trump-Putin summit. The question that was asked to the POTUS was inappropriate. He is standing there, with Putin, the leader of the world’s second military super-power, and the media is playing games constantly, to put him on the spot. Did Russia interfere with the election? Do you believe our intel-agencies or do you believe Putin? Now, we’ve been told day in and day out that our intelligence agencies cannot be trusted; that they lied to get us into the war with Iraq. Right? Goes...

    Since last fall, police in several states have been looking for a man they believe is using a laminated $20 bill attached to some fishing line to steal thousands of dollars from self-serve car washes.
