Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, your finances, and your prosperity.
Feminist group thinks heterosexual relationships are “violent” and should be banned
The “Federation des Femmes du Quebec” is a Canadian feminist group that receives $120,000 of taxpayer funding each year.
And the Federation’s President recently took to Twitter to declare:
“Heterosexual couple relationships are really violent. In addition, the vast majority are relationships based on religion. It may be time to have a conversation about their ban and abolition.” (Translated from French.)
After a backlash, she walked back her statement and apologized.
She explained that her Tweets were an emotional reaction to the news that a man who had murdered his girlfriend was released on parole and killed another 22 year old woman.
So rather than blame a justice system which let a killer walk free, she blamed all straight men.

118 “unlicensed handymen” arrested in Florida
Undercover police in Florida spent six months luring unlicensed handymen to fake jobs to arrest them.
These are guys who do things like paint houses, install tile, redo bathrooms, and install light fixtures.
Clearly these are among the most horrific crimes against society– guys trying to earn a buck by doing hard labor for their patrons.
Luckily for the citizens of Florida, a total of 118 of these handymen were ARRESTED during a six-month sting operation.
Did Florida run out of actual criminals?? Heaven forbid that two consenting adults trade labor for money without the government’s approval.
