New Citizenship Guide Chock Full of Hypocrisies And Double Standards and All We Can Do is Slam Justin Trudeau For Semantics?

Tweet

I wonder if Jason Kenney worded his new citizen’s guide in the way that he did purposely to cause trouble so as to deflect the media and the public at large from his party’s own transgressions? I wouldn’t put it past him, but at the same time, I also believe that ol’ Jason, . . . → Read More: New Citizenship Guide Chock Full of Hypocrisies And Double Standards and All We Can Do is Slam Justin Trudeau For Semantics?

Glenn Beck Too Psycho For Fox News?

Tweet

Sure looks that way. Rumour has it that his contract won’t be renewed when it ends come this December.

Carr believes Beck’s falling ratings might do him in. It seems Beck has lost more than 1 million viewers in the last six months, ever since he crested with his “Restoring Honor Rally” in . . . → Read More: Glenn Beck Too Psycho For Fox News?

Duceppe Issues Stevie Ultimatum

Tweet

Looks like Duceppe is once again, mad and he ain’t takin’ it anymore.  He’s thrown down the gauntlet–again. This time, it’s those dastardly Afghan detainee documents.   Duceppe has threatened to pull out of the parliamentary committee with the Liberals and the Harpercons if Stevie doesn’t play ball by a certain time.

What New Canadian Insanity Is This?

Tweet

As you’ve all heard by now, Don Cherry took his coach’s corner to Afghanistan to visit the troops and do Xmas din-din with them. We Move To Canada‘s, Laura covered that yesterday with an open letter to the CBC news.

Well boys ‘n’ girls, it just got a whole lot stranger (to say . . . → Read More: What New Canadian Insanity Is This?

When Critical Thinking, Separating Facts and Truth From Myths is Just Too Inconvenient–The Power of Misinformation Part D’Uh

Tweet

Shortly after the G20 fiasco, I published a piece, “Never Underestimate the Power of Misinformation”. I thought I would revisit this subject today.

It’s all too easy to misinform the masses. The right has it perfected.  Over used buzz words, often misused like “socialism”. It’s even more fun when they make it interchangeable . . . → Read More: When Critical Thinking, Separating Facts and Truth From Myths is Just Too Inconvenient–The Power of Misinformation Part D’Uh

Mothers Against Diabolical Dictatorships

Tweet ck sent me a link this weekend, to a CTV story of a mother of a Canadian soldier speaking out against the war.  Against War in general.  She was eloquent and passionate, as you might expect of a woman who, having grown up with the Vietnam war, immigrated to Canada to provide a better . . . → Read More: Mothers Against Diabolical Dictatorships

“The Atomic Cafe” – We have met the enemy and he is us

Tweet

“In times of social crisis and tension, in times when changes come so thick and fast that the individual can no longer place himself in his group, when he knows something is wrong but doesn’t know what, when he feels himself a pawn, in times like these, most men become highly suggestible, they . . . → Read More: “The Atomic Cafe” – We have met the enemy and he is us

Protesting and outrage. Where we juxtapose. CC edition. UPDATED

Tweet

CC tweeted this little gem from a rightblogger. You know, those people who are so outraged (read the comments) over the protesters at Blatchford and Coulter speeches (even though the numbers of protesters were tiny). Talk about hypocritical oaths!

Let’s take a little look at what happened when Galloway spoke at York University . . . → Read More: Protesting and outrage. Where we juxtapose. CC edition. UPDATED

Help!

Tweet

I have been reading the blogs today and overwhelmingly we (progressive bloggers) agree that war is counterproductive. What really pisses me off is that we all agreed this 50 years ago, in the sixties. And if I am not mistaken, we came to the same conclusion after the Great War and then again . . . → Read More: Help!

Just So We’re Clear On This No Vote Needed Thing, Here…

Tweet

Hmmm! Cave into NATO  (Americans, in reality) after making an ass out of yourself on the world stage in some pathetic attempt to redeem yourself, and let’s face it, being at war is a helluvalot more fun (not to mention, easier, and goes more along my lack of principles)  than pesky talks of climate change . . . → Read More: Just So We’re Clear On This No Vote Needed Thing, Here…

Afghanistan, mission in…

I emailed this letter to my MP yesterday.  No reply as of yet.

The Honourable Dr. Keith Martin Member of Parliament Esquimalt, Juan De Fuca   Doctor Martin;   It has come to my attention that the mission in Afghanistan has become extended, all of a sudden, to everyone’s surprise! ( I do . . . → Read More: Afghanistan, mission in…

Ok, Brian Lilley, Which She-Wingnuts of the Wankersphere Did You Poll? And Why This Poll? Get a Life!!

Tweet

Oh, the wankers at Sun Media do everything they can to sink to new lows. Tabloid garbage which seems to pass for journalism. The latest screed from Sun’s Wanker in residence? Well, don’t the title just say it all?

Omar Khadr–Why Are These Neo-Cons So Angry? They Got What They Wanted

Tweet

I caught Zionist Tea-baggin’ Tommy and the Gang of Four on CJAD this morning. The question: “Do You Feel Sorry For Omar Khadr?” Tommy’s answer is so blatantly obvious, I’m not even going to elaborate. Trude the Prude was on the fence, but she’s an idiot, anyway. Kim Fraser, the neo-con Harperite, much . . . → Read More: Omar Khadr–Why Are These Neo-Cons So Angry? They Got What They Wanted

We Juxtapose With Hunter!

Tweet

Blogging SupposiTory Hunter is mad, just mad I tell you, and she ain’t takin’ it no more! It seems she had a little spat with her MP.  According to the Blogging SupposiTories’ resident “feminist”, it seems that her male MP thought “she was too harsh” in saying that “Islam suppresses women”.  Well, Hunter, . . . → Read More: We Juxtapose With Hunter!

Obama Cancels Trip to Golden Temple In Fear of Fuelling the Orly Taitz & the Tea-Bagger Brigade He’s Muslim

Tweet

My Co-blogger, TorontoEmerg, already covered this, quite masterfully,  just yesterday:

Don’t blame him. Why cause yourself trouble by providing the dumb shits at home the final proof you’re Mooslim? Especially when the wingnuts will go to great lengths explaining how Sikhs are Muslims, Muslims are jihadists, jihadists are fascists, fascists are Nazi, Nazis . . . → Read More: Obama Cancels Trip to Golden Temple In Fear of Fuelling the Orly Taitz & the Tea-Bagger Brigade He’s Muslim

Sign of the Times

Tweet

A sad commentary on the nature of the age:

[T]he president will not stop at the Golden Temple, a Sikh holy site and one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions, because visitors typically wear headscarves, turbans or Muslim caps.

Obama was to visit the sprawling golden complex in . . . → Read More: Sign of the Times

Who cares indeed, Rex Murphy

Tweet

Rex Murphy knows his role is to entertain his Conservative troops. It hasn’t been going that well lately for his boys. He puts on a brave face. “Who cares” if Canada was embarrassed the world over by its ass kicking at the UN? The UN? Sissy boy do gooders.

When Christians Aren’t

Meanwhile, at Canada Free Press (. . . Because without America there is no Free World!), a screaming headline by Charles McVety (no link):
