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

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

Tweet

Well, Boys n girls,  it seems that Justin Trudeau has admitted to having smoked some weed about 5 or 6 times in his life, the most recent being a few years ago as a sitting MP at a dinner party with friends as they passed a spliff around the table.  The comments I’ve . . . → Read More: Those Who Live in Glass Houses… Justin Trudeau is Not the Only Sitting Politician to Break the Law and Won’t be the Last

A Few Questions About Fordzilla and his Alleged “Crackscapades”

Tweet

 

 

I was just on Facebook where someone who can be described as progressive vehemently defending Mayor Boss Hogg and basically trashing the Toronto Star. In fact, so vehemently, I was wondering if this individual has changed her political stripes.  That whole innocent until proven guilty thing.

Yesterday, yet another school shooting. This time, an elementary school in Connecticut where 20 children and 6 adults were shot dead by an AK 47 no less. The gun apparently belonged to his mother, whom he also shot and killed.  He turned the gun on himself .

Fuqua’s Folly: Canada’s future under Harper, Woodworth, Kenney et al?

Tweet

Yep, here’s where Canada’s Conservative party could one day be headed. With the subtle but urgent march of the likes of Woodworth, Kenney, and the 91 MP’s who voted against women’s rights, how much longer before we are urged to debate the right of women to vote? Or, listen to a recommendation . . . → Read More: Fuqua’s Folly: Canada’s future under Harper, Woodworth, Kenney et al?

We’re going to need a bigger prison

Tweet

 

Harper’s tough on crime sweep of the country has caused a huge problem. Prisons are becoming overcrowded. Workers at existing prisons are fearful for their safety and their lives. How long before the sharks in the Conservative party start bringing up private megaprisons again?

Although the national crime rate has been dropping since . . . → Read More: We’re going to need a bigger prison

Tweet

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

Woman arrested in Montreal for reading George Orwell’s “1984”

Tweet

OK, where are the book readers? Time to smash some heads.

What’s happening in Montreal (and Quebec), the once free-and-easy heartbeat of Canada? It has turned into a nightmare of a police state not even George Orwell could imagine. It’s hard to think that Stephen Harper’s ugly hand of totalitarianism could infiltrate and bully . . . → Read More: Woman arrested in Montreal for reading George Orwell’s “1984”

Red state authoritarianism gone wild: Texas teen jailed for missing school

Tweet

This is what the US would be like with the new far-right Tea Party Republican party in charge. Canada under Harper is not that far off, either.

Red state authoritarianism, when combined with barely-veiled racism, is the new black (emphasis mine).

Boys ‘n’ girls, Johnny’s foe once upon a time is now his mentor. He has learned well about stupid politician tricks.

In Harperland, Only Punishment, No Rehabilitation Or Prevention of Recidivism

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls, those “dumb on crime” Harpercons have proven to only care about punishment and not rehabilitation, yet again. You see, they want to implement new laws with mandatory minimums and then just  cuff ‘em and stuff ‘em in their mega-prisons like Thanksgiving turkeys. We all remember how the Prison Farm . . . → Read More: In Harperland, Only Punishment, No Rehabilitation Or Prevention of Recidivism

War on drugs. NDP vs. Liberals.

Tweet

I’ve been increasingly hard on the Liberals since the first days post-Chretien. So much so, I’ve gravitated towards the NDP. A prime indicator for me of my feelings towards the parties has been that which distinguishes their attitudes towards the war on drugs, particularly in regards to victimless pot.

For me, this . . . → Read More: War on drugs. NDP vs. Liberals.

Cheney chickens out of visit to Toronto

Tweet

Must be all those mandatory minimum sentences that spooked the skittish Mr. Cheney. Do the crime, do the time must be scary words to a man wanted in much of the world for crimes against humanity. Plus I doubt the recent slaughter of innocent Iraqis at the hand of a US soldier will help . . . → Read More: Cheney chickens out of visit to Toronto

"Hey, this is some good reefer. I just saw the future. It's just like the 30's in Canada only worse!"

Here is a concerned citizen from the Saguenay region, who has taken things further.
