SORRY, WE ARE FULL — Hultsfred Municipality in Sweden is hiding the welcome mat, telling migrants and asylum seekers to go elsewhere for help because the municipality can no longer cope with their numbers. Migrants looking to settle in the municipality receive a letter containing the following:
“We recommend that you seek to one of Sweden’s 289 other municipalities.”
Migrants who do not heed the warning and move to the area will have their welfare requests ignored. The message is clear: Go elsewhere.
TRU-DOH! — It looks like Canada’s nice-guy PM will be the first sitting prime minister to be investigated by the ethics commissioner for his recent holiday trip to Aga Khan’s private island. I wrote about that torrid tale here, here and here.

Nine News has more on that recent robbery here.

I HAD A DREAM — Stefan Molyneux has posted a very interesting critique of MLK Jr.’s famous “I have a dream” speech and its legacy.
I had to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech when I was in government schools – repeatedly, every year, it seemed. Unfortunately, I was already reading real philosophy, so I immediately pegged it for the dangerous sophistry that it was, and remains.
MIGRANT MAYHEM — Two migrants from North Africa have been put on trial for a fire set at a migrant centre last year in Düsseldorf, Germay. One of the migrants was apparently angry because food was being served at the centre during hours forbidden by the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. He ignited the fire and used vodka as an accelerant.
