Not Yet a Comeback — The Bitch Ain’t Back, Yet

Tweet

Well, boys n girls, I think this is the longest I’ve been away from blogging. Other than the occasional tweet or Facebook posting of an article or picture of interest, and only recently, back to commenting on a few like minded blogs, I haven’t really written or done anything of substance. I have . . . → Read More: Not Yet a Comeback — The Bitch Ain’t Back, Yet

Jim Flaherty’s Death Does Not Warrant the Hero Worship he Has Been Receiving

Tweet

I shouldn’t have to open this post with I’m sorry for Flaherty’s family’s loss. That is a given.  In fact, I can empathize. I have lost people recently.  I really hope Flaherty’s family finds the strength to continue with their lives.  It’s one reason why I haven’t really spoken of it on Thursday . . . → Read More: Jim Flaherty’s Death Does Not Warrant the Hero Worship he Has Been Receiving

Is Anyone Capable of Critical Thinking? Does Anyone Even Care?

Tweet

Well, it looks like a Quebec Liberal majority and the PQ are collapsing to 2007 numbers. Quebec Solidaire has shown some improvement in vote count but not in seats. It seems that the biggest hope for Ste-Marie-St-Jacques, Manon Masse of Quebec Solidaire will not win her seat, although it is still early and . . . → Read More: Is Anyone Capable of Critical Thinking?

Why This Anglo Supports Quebec Solidaire and So Should Other Progressive Anglos

Tweet

Well, boys n girls, one week before the election. Advanced polling starts today. After the sparring on Facebook and Twitter with other Quebec Anglos who are progressive as to why the Quebec Liberal Party doesn’t deserve our votes and that yes, there is indeed a choice in voting.  Yup, I’ve heard all the . . . → Read More: Why This Anglo Supports Quebec Solidaire and So Should Other Progressive Anglos

Thursday Night’s Quebec Election Leader’s Debate and The Power of Misinformation

Tweet

I’m a bit late giving my opinions here, but here goes.

First off, for those who complained or mocked Pauline Marois for being, shall we say, animated, would you rather a debate where everybody is standing still like statues and speaking in a monotonic voice?  Perhaps where they all basically agreed with each . . . → Read More: Thursday Night’s Quebec Election Leader’s Debate and The Power of Misinformation

Let’s Start Commemorating This International Women’s Day by Demanding Justice

Tweet

I will open with a Happy International Women’s Day to all my likeminded readers.  However, I’m afraid this is not a pleasant post.  I will be talking about many issues facing women today, mainly in Canada.

I found it hilarious that Tasha Kheiriddin, preaching human rights using typical right winged talking points when . . . → Read More: Let’s Start Commemorating This International Women’s Day by Demanding Justice

Economic Inaction Plan 2014 — One Step Closer to Elimination of Universal Health Care

Tweet

On page 279 of Jimbo Flaherty’s latest budget which was declared pretty much a yawner by the punditry, ignored by the masses more interested in gold medals in Sochi,  is Stevie Harper’s main dream to kill universal health care.  We shouldn’t be surprised though; not long ago, Stevie closed the  Health Council of . . . → Read More: Economic Inaction Plan 2014 — One Step Closer to Elimination of Universal Health Care

Media, Commentators, Should Spend More Time and Energy Start Asking Serious Questions of Philippe Couillard and the Quebec Liberal Party

Tweet

Move over Quebec Charter of Values…there’s a new scandal in town! This time, it’s in the form of more corruption being found in the Quebec Liberal Party and Philippe Couillard is in the hot seat!  As well he should, for more than one reason. While many journos, pundits and other commentators are still . . . → Read More: Media, Commentators, Should Spend More Time and Energy Start Asking Serious Questions of Philippe Couillard and the Quebec Liberal Party

Gee, That Was Fast! M-312 Dies and 24 Hours Later, M-408 Crawls out of The Woodwork!

Tweet

Boys ‘n’ girls, I expressed concern that another hideous fetus bill or motion would be tabled sooner rather than later. I think many of us had that sick feeling.  This evening, we were Proven right.  The new wank face of fetus is Langley Harpercon, Mark Warawa AKA ra ra war.  He is supporting . . . → Read More: Gee, That Was Fast!

The Battle For Our Reproductive Rights is Won…But Why Do I Think We Haven’t Won the War?

Tweet

I know I haven’t written about ol’ Wankworth and his wankiness in some time.  Then again, I haven’t blogged about much of anything as of late.  I must offer my 2 cents here, boys ‘n’ girls.  I’m happy that this M-312 never came to light. Relieved, actually. However,  why do I get this sinking . . . → Read More: The Battle For Our Reproductive Rights is Won…But Why Do I Think We Haven’t Won the War?

A Politician Who Keeps Her Promise and How Long Will Pauline Marois and the PQ Last?

Tweet

Pauline Marois had a very busy first day of school, boys ‘n’ girls. After the first day school, by decree, La Marois has scrapped the proposed tuition hike for at least this year, struck the most contentious and punitive portions of Bill 78 (now Bill 12),  issued a permanent moratorium on the production . . . → Read More: A Politician Who Keeps Her Promise and How Long Will Pauline Marois and the PQ Last?

Stevie Harper is Simply Choosing his Battles Regarding About Face on Asbestos

Tweet

When I first read Jymn’s post last night regarding the Harpercons’ about face on asbestos, my first thought was that wow! La Marois, our newly premier elect does have power despite her thready minority.   Yep, ol’ Chrissie Paradis, the “ethical” MP for the only riding that had once produced asbestos, had announced . . . → Read More: Stevie Harper is Simply Choosing his Battles Regarding About Face on Asbestos

Shona Holmes is Baaack! Yet Again!

And she’s a stickin’ to her story or should I say her lie about a “brain tumour” that really was a benign cyst of the petuitary gland.  She’s back on the tea-party circuit again and she’s featured on the latest Koch brothers’ anti-Obama ads.  Just one thing, Shona, how much are the Koch . . . → Read More: Shona Holmes is Baaack!

Media Failures During Quebec Election Campaign

Tweet

The Grope and Fail has decided to endorse a CAQ / Liberal ‘agreement’ of sorts.

If we could wish anything for Quebec, it would be a minority alliance of the established Liberals and upstart CAQ, one that melds experience, daring and willingess to work with the rest of Canada on our shared challenges . . . → Read More: Media Failures During Quebec Election Campaign

Boys ‘n’ girls, get ready for a rant alert with a lot of 4-letter words.   I should come up with more editions like these.  I’m sure non-medicare private for profit health care services other than Vital Aire have been known to disprove the whole private for profit offering better service.  Today, I will . . . → Read More: How Private For Profit Health Provider Rations Their Emergency Week-end Services–Vital Aire Edition

Tweet

I caught the #DenounceHarper hash tag on Twitter this morning again to commemorate Canada Day. I found it quite fitting, really.

Premier Johnny-Boy, What The Hell Did You Do Now? 58M For Asbestos, but Not For Students Or Social Programs?

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls,  I honestly thought this whole asbestos cheerleading thing would’ve died a well deserved death by now.  I mean, the last remaining asbestos mine, Lac D’Amiante in Thetford Mines closed down.  Premier Johnny-Boy looked to be delaying offering that 58M$ loan guarantee to the now-closed Jeffrey Mine in Asbestos indefinitely, . . . → Read More: Premier Johnny-Boy, What The Hell Did You Do Now? 58M For Asbestos, but Not For Students Or Social Programs?
