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?

Tweet

Well, no, not really part d’uh. I’m just resurrecting this snarky, satirical and sarcastic post I did 4 years ago with the help of a Montreal friend, Karl, with an update or 2.  I thought it would be fitting to resurrect during this fine election campaign.

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

Quebec Election 2014; Not Much to See, But Watch The Fun of Watching Many Diving Into Their Fainting Couches!

Tweet

Aaaarrrrggghhhh!! She blows!  La Marois went and did what many were predicting she’d do — she called an election for April 7 — a short campaign at that.  Polls seem to indicate that La Marois and the PQ are primed to win a majority. Already many, particularly the Angryphone set are all choking . . . → Read More: Quebec Election 2014; Not Much to See, But Watch The Fun of Watching Many Diving Into Their Fainting Couches!

Babs Kay And Robyn Urback, By Denying a Rape Culture Exists, You’re Actually Contributing to It

Tweet

Boys n girls, Babs Kay has exposed her betrayal to the sisterhood yet again.  This time she contends that the rape culture on university campuses virtually doesn’t exist, or at the very least, is grossly exaggerated.  First off, she gives an extremely dumb analogy:

Tweet

Earlier today, CJAD’s Trivia Show co-host and writer, Dan Laxer posted a comment on his Facebook page.  Here it is verbatim:

Wait a minute. Did you just say referendum? Those are expensive, aren’t they?

Well, as usual, Stevie gets his wish.  The channel has been changed from senategate, thanks to his buddies in corporate media.  Of course, being away in Europe begging on his knees for the French and the Irish to buy out yet another piece of Canada  just before the house shuts down for summer . . . → Read More: Charitable Events That Go Bust, Traffic Infractions and How It’s Not the Act, But Who Commits it

Tweet

That is the question @YukonGale asked on Twitter tonight during tonight’s episode of Power Play on the boob tube this fine evening.  I watched it too.  For those who did not watch, Don Martin asked both journalists (Toronto Star’s Tim Harper and of course, Bob Fife, CTV’s Ottawa bureau chief) he had on . . . → Read More: Oh Bob Fife, Are You Suggesting That You Get Paid Less Than Your CBC Counterparts?

Boys ‘n’ girls, this is a rant that is long overdue.  I’ve seen the righty trolls bitch about teachers being paid too much or they’re being greedy every time there is a labour dispute as it happened in Ontario recently.  They bitch that teachers don’t really work all that hard and they have . . . → Read More: To Those Knocking Teaching as not Real Work Experience; You Must Not Really Value Your Children
