Under Attack

May 22, 2007 @ 09:32

I'm sure the Prime Minister is in for a rough couple of days. He flew to Afghanistan yesterday to meet with Canadian troops and Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

A trip to Afghanistan is tough and tedious for anyone, even a sitting Prime Minister, but that won't be Harper's problem over the next couple of days.

It will be the Canadian media and all the left wing loonies in Canada who will question his intentions and probably accuse him of using a government jet for private use.

Don't laugh.

Racial Profiling

May 18, 2007 @ 08:29

There's no doubt what happened to Jacqueline Nassiah in a Mississauga department store was wrong, but the fall out will cause nothing but grief in our courts in the years to come.

Nassiah was wrongly accused of stealing a bra from the Dixie Outlet Mall back in 2003, and yesterday the Ontario Human Rights Commission determined a Peel police officer had racially profiled the single mother, and as a result declared racial profiling contrary to the Ontario Human Rights Code.

This is precedent setting and in this case may actually be warranted, but if you're sick of the word racism right now, brace yourself because the term "racial profiling" is bound to become front and centre in the years to come.

A decision made with the best of intentions, in a province and country that bends over backwards to make people feel welcome, has created an excuse for anyone who commits a crime.

You can bet your sweet ass that "racial profiling" will be the first line of defense for thousands of cases in the years to come - and it could reach bizarre proportions because before long I'm sure a white person who is stopped by a non-white officer will use racial profiling as an excuse.

And why the hell not?

Romy Checks In

May 10, 2007 @ 09:00

Great response to my Paul Romanuk posting from yesterday. A lot of people checked in, both on the site and through the contact button.

Obviously Paul made an impact during his long and impressive Canadian broadcasting career and it was great to have him respond.

Romanuk replied to yesterdays posting, and he also wrote lengthy piece on his blog

Check it out!

No Go Mexico

May 10, 2007 @ 08:59

A couple of people e-mailed me yesterday and asked why I hadn't mentioned the latest Canadian killing in Mexico.

I wanted to wait a day to see if any more information came out, but it's obvious it's another cover-up by the corrupt Mexican police and to add insult to injury the same guy who botched the Ianeiro killings has been given this assignment.

He's been quick to say that 33 year old Jeff Toews of Alberta wasn't beaten to death outside the Disco at his Cancun hotel; he fell out a second story window.

If this isn't enough for Canadians to stay out of this backwards shit hole of a country, nothing is.

And it's about time our government got involved. You can't ban Canadians from traveling, but the Harper government sure as hell could put some pressure on these scum bags.

Skunks

May 9, 2007 @ 09:11

This story is about a couple of skunks. Gilles Duceppe, leader of the Bloc Quebecois, and Andre Boisclar, former leader of the Parti Quebecois.

Yesterday, Boisclar quit as leader of the PQ and rumour has it that Duceppe will pull a Lucien Bouchard and jump to the provincial skunk party.

It really is amazing how placid and nice Canadians are. How we put up with the existence of people in our country whose sole purpose in life is to destroy our country is beyond me.

Gilles Duceppe is an enemy of Canada and he's the worst kind. He was born and raised in this country and he wants to wreck it. It doesn't get any worse.

I honestly don't know how I would react if I ever met this skunk, or any other separatist skunk face to face.

It wouldn't be pretty.

Paul Romanuk

May 9, 2007 @ 09:10

We all have our politic leanings and my good friend Paul Romanuk is no different.

Paul e-mailed me several months ago to say he didn't know I was such a goose-stepping Conservative. Paul intimated I was a blind conservative and that hurt. It hurt real bad.

Paul meanwhile, although now living in London, England, is an NDPer. He grew up in the union hot bed of Oshawa and not only is he an NDPer, he absolutely despises the Conservatives and really hates Stephen Harper.

But that's cool. I don't happen to like Jack Layton, and it's on this point that I direct you to a posting from last week on Romanuk's blog.

Paul writes about the Shane Doan controversy, but no where in his posting does he mention Jack Layton. Can you believe it?

He doesn't mention Jack Layton, even though Layton was front and centre in the Doan embarrassment. As a matter of fact, Layton was more disgusting through the incident that Gilles Duceppe.

We expect a skunk like Duceppe to do what he did - but it was terribly disappointing to have Layton, a supposed nationalist mouth off the way he did.

I think we all expected more. Even from the NDP.

The ball is in your court Romy. And for the record, I wouldn't sign Kyoto either - it's a pile of bullshit.

From Last Week

May 8, 2007 @ 08:47

A follow up from last week. There was great response to "Compost Bag" regarding Elizabeth May's comments about the Conservatives environmental plans.

It turned into a bit of a pissing match between a guy named Larry and a few other readers.

Larry tried to explain what May "really" meant, but it all comes back to the same thing.

You don't go there. When you're talking about a government strategy, never do you compare it to anything "Nazi" - no matter what angle you want to attack it from.

It was cheap and there was no excuse for it.

Bang Your Head Against The Wall

May 8, 2007 @ 08:46

Meanwhile, sometimes I just have to shake my head at my fellow Canadians. The latest Ipsos-Reid poll reveals that the Conservatives and Liberals are in a virtual tie at 35 percent support.

Crazy when you think about it. The Liberals are currently a disabled party with a limp-dick leader and a growing number of members who'd like to overthrow the guy.

They have a history of lies and deceit and theft and ironically no environment policy of any substance, but still they've clawed back to be on equal footing with a government that's done a pretty good job in my estimation.

But hey, this is Canada and we've become nothing but a Liberal wasteland, especially in Ontario.

I don't think the Liberals are in any position to win an election, but they're definitely in a position to prevent a Conservative majority, which means the country will continue to hobble along with no real direction and more pandering to Quebec.

It really is disgusting what politics can do to a fella - look at Ken Dryden.

If there was anyone in Ottawa that might be able to bring some sense to the Shane Doan situation you'd think it would be Ken Dryden.

Yes I know, he's boring to listen to and he didn't do much as president of the Maple Leafs, but he's still a hockey guy so you'd think he might be the one voice on Parliament Hill to say "guys, let's give ourselves a shake" and worry about more pressing issues.

But no, Ken Dryden has become a politician just like the rest of them. I couldn't believe it yesterday when I heard Dryden defend the decision to call Hockey Canada before a Parliamentary committee today.

Dryden says Hockey Canada receives a million dollars a year from the government, so they have every right to question the choice of Shane Doan as captain.

Dryden, once considered a man of principle has become just another government weasel who will do or say anything he's told if it means gathering votes - and in this case it's votes in Quebec.

And here's another thought. Don't you think it's silly that the issue here is Doan's captaincy and not the fact that he's simply on the team.

Think about it. All this furor is about the "C" on his sweater. I could almost understand this more if Gillies Duceppe had questioned why Doan was on the team at all.

It still would have been stupid, but considering the issue, why is it alright for Doan to be on the team, but not be the captain if he's such a "frog hating bastard."

This will go down as a sad and embarrassing day in Canadian history…. and while we're at it, if there's anyone in the riding of Toronto-Danforth who casts a ballot for Jack Layton in the next election, you're just as disgusting as he is.

Compost Bag

May 3, 2007 @ 08:13

Yesterday was quite the day for Green Party leader Elizabeth May, and there should be a lesson in it for us all.

May got her day in the spotlight. She was interviewed from coast to coast getting lots of attention for her goofy little party that no rational thinking person will ever take seriously.

What really bothered me is the way she was handled. She was more or less let off the hook with most of the interviews positioned like she was some silly little kid who said something stupid without really thinking first.

Imagine if you will, what the reaction would have been is someone from the "right" or the Conservatives had compared a Green Party policy to anything Nazi.

It would have been ugly and believe me the Prime Minister would not have gotten the free ride that May did.

Then again, the Prime Minister would never say anything so stupid and therein lies the lesson.

These environmentalists, these extreme left wing whackos are dangerous and more than willing to use any means possible to get their way and they'll say anything and do anything to discredit anyone who stands in their way.

There is no room for dialogue with these people. You either agree or you're a bad person and you'll be told, even if it means a comparison with Nazi Germany.

And the scariest part? They usually get away with it.
