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

Come Join the Dark Side! We Got Poutine, Pepsi and Jos Louis! (Mise a Jour) — Part D’Uh??

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. Because every election campaign is in dire . . . → Read More: Come Join the Dark Side! We Got Poutine, Pepsi and Jos Louis! (Mise a Jour) — Part D’Uh??

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

Happy St-Paddy’s Day From Sister Sage’s Musings

Tweet Happy St-Paddy’s Day all! 

I leave you with some Irish folk tunes!

Of course, what collection of Irish folk songs on St-Paddy’s Day would be complete without a version of “Whiskey jar”. My favourite version of the song, however, is from American Folk legends, The Kingston Trio in 1963 (I . . . → Read More: Happy St-Paddy’s Day From Sister Sage’s Musings

Charitable Events That Go Bust, Traffic Infractions and How It’s Not the Act, But Who Commits it

Tweet

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

Harper not opening abortion debate? GG gives Jubilee medals to anti-choice Cons (as in Convicts)

Tweet

Two lawless anti-choice, anti-women zealots – Linda Gibbons and Mary Wagner – have been awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals by the Governor General (warning: link goes to virulently anti-choice site) for ‘contribution to Canada.’ Humoursly one the recipients, Mary Wagner, is currently in jail for her radical law breaking.

Man kills wife and two sons after church for fear of Obama victory

Tweet

How crazed are conservatives over Obama being reelected? It’s getting way out of hand.

Recently, Mr Peterson began writing paranoid emails to his friends and family about politics on a daily basis, sometimes even more frequently, Maggie said. 

‘I got emails and the emails stopped all of a sudden last week,’ Maggie said. . . . → Read More: Man kills wife and two sons after church for fear of Obama victory

Romney’s Harper-like speech blows up in his face. US media pounces.

Tweet

Remember Stephen Harper’s 1997 speech to a group of Americans, where he called Canada, “a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term”? That quote, and many other similar Canada-hating ones, should have gone viral and remained viral. But it hasn’t and won’t, because well, the media is not going to shoot itself . . . → Read More: Romney’s Harper-like speech blows up in his face. US media pounces.

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls, Pierre Poilievre like a good Harpercon puppet is planning to punish the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) union for endorsing PQ and QS candidates in the Quebec election, by implementing a so-called “Right to work” law right here in Harperland.   PSAC simply endorsed candidates of parties who were . . . → Read More: Pierre Poilievre Wants To Implement Work To Rule To Punish PSAC For For Dissent–UPDATE

Labour Day — Will The Working Class Wake Up Before it’s too Late?

Tweet

This is dedicated to most of the working class who all say that unions must, to put it mildly, disappear.  How often have I heard from much of the working class “But, we don’t need unions anymore!” Almost half of Canadians just don’t understand the benefits of  organized labour.

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

Could Quebec Solidaire Obtain a Third Seat?

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls,  we know that co-leader of the Quebec Solidaire, Dr. Amir Khadir will maintain his seat in Mercier.  Also, for a long time now, the near by riding of Gouin appeared to be a tight race between the Parti-Quebecois incumbent, Nicolas Girard and the other co-leader of Quebec Solidaire, Francoise . . . → Read More: Could Quebec Solidaire Obtain a Third Seat?

Johnny Kay And Other Canadian Media Personalities; Your Hypocrisy is Just Stunning!

Tweet

It really is awesome, too. I can’t believe this but after everything I hear from conservative Anglo media as well as what is written on comment boards regarding Pauline Marois and the PQ being Xenophobic (Johnny Kay used “the most Xenophobic” to describe her).  What is more stunning is that Johnny Kay blasts . . . → Read More: Johnny Kay And Other Canadian Media Personalities; Your Hypocrisy is Just Stunning!

And Now a Word From the ‘Biblical Scholars’ of Chick-Fil-A

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls, seeing is believing. These ‘biblical scholars’ who are also historically challenged try to answer why they support Chick-Fil-A and their homophobic stance.

What’s funny is that the interviewer wasn’t asking trick questions. In fact, they were quite straight forward in plain English. Perhaps she should’ve asked phonetically, going . . . → Read More: And Now a Word From the ‘Biblical Scholars’ of Chick-Fil-A

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls, that sure didn’t take long, did it? All those rumours running rampant of a major cabinet shuffle come the Fall were quickly nipped in the bud in typical Stevie Spiteful style today.  Yep, Robocop Fantino will be replacing Bevie Odeous as minister for CIDA and was already sworn in. . . . → Read More: Will That Be With Or Without Pulp, Mr. Fantino?

Was Bevie Oda Thrown Under the Bus? Is This Typical Harpercon Double Standard?

Tweet

Now, boys ‘n’ girls, don’t be fooled by the title of this post. By any means, I do  ^Not  feel sorry for Bevie Odeous, nor should any of you.

Tweet

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

Doctor and medical student interrupt Minister Joe Oliver at press conference

Tweet

Dan Gardner thinks the doctor and medical student are being “thuggish”.

 

But I wonder what alternatives these professionals have to express their concerns and represent the Canadian public? If the Dr and student hadn’t acted “thuggishly”, would we even know that medical professionals are standing up for Canadians? . . . → Read More: Doctor and medical student interrupt Minister Joe Oliver at press conference

Villenueuve Jr. ! Your Right-Winged Hypocrisy is Stunningly Awesome!

Tweet

When I read ol’ Villeneuve Jr.’s comments regarding the protests yesterday, I honestly didn’t know whether to laugh or to be really furious.  Probably both.  Kinda like reading about IMF boss, Christine Lagarde lecturing Greeks about paying taxes when she doesn’t pay taxes herself.  She whined about the poor children in Africa when . . . → Read More: Villenueuve Jr. !
