Can we not just fry rapists or better still cut them up in bite size pieces ?

Six decomposing bodies have been found at the house of a rapist who spent 15 years in jail  for a 1989 rape conviction. The question now should be: Did he start killing after he was released or did the police department neglect to do a thorough search of his residence in 1989.

Richard Fadden, CSIS Head Honcho gives it straight and true... right guy in the right job

I like this guy. Says it like it is. At long last we have someone who minces no words and uses no fancy pansy politically correct lingo bingo.

...."Almost any attempt to fight terrorism by the government is portrayed as an overreaction or an assault on liberty. It is a peculiar position, given that terrorism is the ultimate attack on liberties," Fadden told an Ottawa conference of about 300 security and intelligence specialists....

..."Why ... are those accused of terrorist offences often portrayed in media as quasi-folk heroes, despite the harsh statements of numerous judges? Why are they always photographed with their children, given tender-hearted profiles, and more or less taken at their word when they accuse CSIS or other government agencies of abusing them?...

....Instead, he said, accused terrorists are routinely portrayed as too unsophisticated, ill-prepared or youthful to actually commit such heinous acts. That theme, "permeates a fair amount of the coverage of those charged in the Toronto plot.

"I seriously doubt, however, whether editors would allow this kind of reasoning to be used in news coverage of those accused of murder or robbery."....

........."Terrorist offences are the most vile form of criminal conduct. They are abnormal crimes ... They attack the very fabric of Canada's democratic ideals ... Their object is to strike fear and terror into citizens in a way not seen in other criminal offences."..........

France has woken up !!!

Latest moves from Sarkozy's government have given hope to France's survival from an Islamic takeover.  As for UK, sadly, in my opinion, we have to bid her goodbye. She is on her deathbed and only a miracle can save her.  I hope our Jason Kenny and the powers that be in Canada are taking note of the actions taken by France and also feeling alarmed at the non-actions of the United Kingdom.

On Defamation suits, snakes and maggots

Over at Raphael Alexander's blog a number of  creepy crawlies are slithering around gloating over the libel suit that a lefty blogger has filed against Raphael. I put in my two bits in the comments section, and the usual suspects came growling back dripping their ghoulish yuk all over and brandishing about with words like "vilifying" and "libel".

These morons are trying to scare a she-devil who has crushed much bigger maggots under her stiletto heels and not wasted a nanosecond of a thought on the deed.

However, their pitiful threats gave me inspiration to check up on prison systems in our neck of the woods. Tell you what, if someone ever decides to file a suit against me, I will be happy to opt for a prison term and would not spend even a single red cent on lawyers. Being in prison will mean that I will get meals like these, which being too weight conscious I keep away from but would be only too happy to consume :

Sample prison menu:Breakfast: scrambled eggs, grits, corn muffins, bran cereal, pineapple beverage, margarine, coffee, milk Dinner: chicken and biscuits, turnip greens, tossed salad, vinegar and oil dressing, mashed potatoes, spice cake, iced tea

And lots of other exotic stuff cooked by potential future TV chefs like Emiril and Paula Dean, both having started their careers cooking for prisoners according to posters at this forum

Moreover, according to this
"If you are in prison then the diet you get is extremely good in terms of nutritional content," he went on. "The food that is provided is actually better than most civilians have."There's a focus on carbohydrates, then there's the way they prepare the food, it's very healthy
I do not have a single soul who depends on me, so spending some time in prison would not mean that I have left someone high and dry without monetary means to look after themselves. If sent to prison, I would be able to continue pampering my first love, Reading, as according to this the prisons are stock full of books and prisoners have access to the best library materials.
A library orientation class is given to all new inmates to force them to come in and hear about library programs. However, many times what gets them in the door is the recreational material.
And then I found this list of prisons and as I am a resident of Toronto, chances are I will be assigned to the Kingston facility.

I believe Kingston has a great exercise program and being an inmate there I will be forced to exercise and probably attain that wish for a flat tummy at long last.

If someone dares to make a sexual move, I will be able to sue the Province of Ontario for Millions of dollars for not keeping me safe in prison and might even be able to publish a bestseller on my prison experiences and make additionally more moolah.

Yes, life can be good. Now, if only someone could be enticed into suing me.

If H1N1 turns pandemic would it justify blocking segments of the internet? NOOOOOOOOO

Always remember one important factor of how socialism gets itself embedded in the pysches of otherwise free people. Socialism tests the waters, toe by toe to gauge the reaction of the citizens and this is another ploy from the communists in the WH.  The USA government is putting about that certain segments of the internet will have to be blocked because they fear that people staying home due to the pandemic would be downloading porn, etc. thus clogging up the bandwidths which are needed for day traders and investors. This is a bold faced lie, in my opinion.

There is a long discussion going on at TechRepublic and from the little I have read, many commentors seem to think that this is a socialist move and is not unlike what China, Iran and other communist countries tend to do to control internet traffic.  If the present regime in the USA takes hold of the internet, citing  H1N1 as an excuse, it will be next to impossible to wrestle it out of their hold after the H1N1 has disappeared for good.

A Canadian blogger in Iranian prison

According to Hamed Derakshan, the brother of 34-yr old Hossein, the blogger who went by the name "Hoder" was arrested in Iran in November 2008 and since then hardly any efforts have been made for his release. The Iranian Embassy spokesperson has point blank told the CBC that "As far as I know , there is no Canadian citizen in prison in Iran."

So how come this blogger disappeared after being arrested by Iranian authorities on Iranian soil holding a Canadian passport? I think our Foreign Affairs dept better look into this issue before this spirals into something like those Somali/Sudanese fiascos.

I really cannot understand why people who "escape" such tyrannical countries to the sanctuary of Canada, keep going back to those cesspools and then the Canadian government has to get itself involved to pull them out of their self-made messy situations.

When will they learn, for pete's sake.

FBI agents hoping to break up an alleged interstate crime ring dealing in arson, fraud and possibly stolen vehicles, ended up in a gunfight at a Detroit-area warehouse, after which a suspect lay dead.

The FBI sought to arrest Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a.k.a. Christopher Thomas, 53, who a criminal complaint said was the imam of a radical fundamentalist Sunni group called Masjid Al-Haqq that seeks to establish a sovereign Islamic state inside the United States. ....

.....Of the 10 other men charged, one is already in jail, Mohammad Abdul Bassir (a.k.a. Frankin D. Roosevelt Williams); six have been arrested and three suspects are at large, possibly in Canada, according to FBI officials. Those men are Mujahid Carswell (a.k.a. Mujahid Abdullah), Mohammad Alsahi (a.k.a. Mohammad Palestine) and Yassir Ali Khan.....

chewing on hands that feed them parasites

However, an FBI dog died in the gunfire before the Abdullah scum was brought down. And talk about three of them making a beeline to Canada goes to prove that Canada has become a haven for crooks, criminals, traffickers in drugs and humans and muslim terrorists  We so want and need to have a Conservative majority.

Good move Mr. President

A presidential move for once.

President Barack Obama made an overnight dash to Dover Air Force Base on Wednesday to honor the return of fallen soldiers, absorbing the ultimate cost of war as the United States endures its deadliest month of the Afghanistan campaign.

On a clear fall night, Obama flew by Marine One helicopter directly to Delaware to greet the flag-draped caskets of 18 Americans killed in action this week.

Upon arrival, the president got into a motorcade to a base chapel, where he was to meet privately with families of the fallen Americans.

Heart of the Assassin by Robert Ferrigno reviewed by ...

the invincible Mark Steyn. This is the final book in the "Assassin" trilogy. I have put a hold at the library for all three books. From Steyn's review, clearly these are a "must read".

...Finally, a point of personal privilege, as the parliamentarians say. Reviewing Heart of the Assassin in FrontPage Magazine, David Forsmark noted:

“Here is a clue as to just how great Ferrigno’s Assassin trilogy is: giving a rave review to the first book was part of the indictment against columnist Mark Steyn when he was hauled before Canada’s so-called Human Rights Commission. Recommendations don’t come any higher than that.”....

Lib MP apologizes for "body bags" flyer controversy

All that hullabaloo from the Liberals health critic Dr.Caroloyn Bennet was all the more disgraceful as being a doctor she should have known better. Well ... she has now apologized and although the article mentions "MPs" in plural, it is not apparent if the other Liberal MP Rob Oliphant made any formal apology.
Liberal MPs apologized Wednesday for distributing a household flyer that attacks the government’s handling of H1N1 among aboriginals with the slogan “No vaccines, just body bags.” The flyer, mailed as a message from Liberal health critic Dr. Carolyn Bennett, features a picture of body bags in a lab and a sick aboriginal child.

Poetry, satire and what have you on Obama

The internet is awash in satire and cartoons on Obama and his administration. If you think about it, we the Conservatives should be thankful to Obama and his Mad House for making people open their eyes and see the lunacy oozing forth from Washington. Canada will become more conservative, all thanks to Obama. UK is already giving their labor party the finger and the predictions of UK Labor going down in flames at their next election is a foregone conclusion. France is also showing signs of Conservatism and we know Germany has turned decidedly Right.  Even ordinary people who never thought much about politics are waking up  and wondering about the corruption, the arrogance and the foolhardiness of this administration.

This poem  and the cartoons below are the best I have seen today.

...But it’s unfair to let the U.S. market run so free.
Thus I confess, I think it’s best to let you intervene.
But history has often seen this trend, though it is wrong:
The liberal inserts himself where he does not belong.
If this is not the promised change I guess we’ll give a thought
To improving care and comfort of the terrorists we’ve caught.
The towers burned, bin Laden cheered, our nation tried to mend.
That there could live such hateful scum was hard to comprehend.
But hate is base! And thus we’ve tried to tame our vengeful flame.
And in this breach we now can preach forgiveness and self-blame.
These villains who would kill us all deserve human respect.
They blow up schools and village>..but their rights we’ll protect!
Obama must close Git-mo to prevent its gross misuse!
Investigate the CIA for terrorist abuse.
I’m not sure that this is change, although it seems obscene,
We’ve seen a lot of fools protecting scumbags, thieves and fiends....

The incredible logic of Thomas Sowell ...the voice of reason

I think I have said this before, but I never tire of saying it again and again. Dr.Sowell is one of the most prominent thinkers of our time, at least in my books. At the very bottom is a clip which was made 30 years ago at which time Dr.Sowell gave his views on the welfare system. His thinking and ideas are full of common sense and logic and go hand in hand with his economist background.

Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many "czars" appointed by the President, could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90 percent?

Did you think that another "czar" would be talking about restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to subsidize newspapers-- that is, to create a situation where some newspapers' survival would depend on the government liking what they publish?

Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking about having a panel of so-called "experts" deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments?

Letter to UN's Judge Goldstone

from Dr.David Tzengen
My name is Dr. David Zangen, I am a consultant in Pediatric Endocrinology and diabetes at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem. Over 50% of my patient population is Palestinian from Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. I speak Arabic and initiated the first training program for Palestinian physicians in the field of Pediatric Endocrinology. The trained physicians were fully respected and were included as first authors on our studies that are published in world leading professional journals.
But, at the same time I happened to be the chief medical officer of my brigade during the Defensive Shield Operation in Jenin 2002. I was responsible for the medical treatment of our soldiers but also for enabling the hospital in Jenin to provide full medical services to the civilian population and I was personally involved in numerous medical treatments that Palestinians (including warriors) received from Israeli physicians.
During and after the operation the director of Jenin hospital was a source to what has been falsely called the "Massacre in Jenin where 5000 people were massacred" this same person Dr. Abu Rali has also claimed that one part of the Jenin hospital was destroyed by Israeli tank missiles "12 tank rockets were shot at the hospital …" etc

Part 1 and 2 from Oct 27

Go to utube for the rest.

Dangerous Laser beams directed at aircraft

Pilots are complaining that people are deliberately pointing astronomy lasers at their cockpits. Back in August there was an incident in Kelowna of laser lights being flashed into cockpits of commercial  flights and the RCMP had a media release warning the offenders. Clearly, warnings from the authorities does not seem to deter these scoundrels as now there has been another incident in Ontario. One can only wonder if similar mischief has not played a role in the small plane crashes of late, as there have been more than a 100 laser beam incidents across Canada.
"There was a light that came out and hit me right in the eyes. It took a couple of seconds before I realized what was going on," Mobbs recounted to Canada AM Tuesday.

"I was able to alert the other pilot and he was able to duck down from the beam so he didn't get hit; he just saw the flash in the cockpit."

The laser damaged Mobbs' retina and the pain started almost immediately
Pilots urge tougher penalties for laser attacks

Canadian charged with plot to attack Danish newspaper

A Canadian citizen is among two Chicago men charged with plotting terrorist attacks against targets outside the United States.

U.S. prosecutors allege that their intended targets included a Danish newspaper that sparked outrage among Muslims by publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Prosecutors say that David Coleman Headley, 49, and Tahawwur Hussain Rana, 48, have been charged in separate complaints filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Ch

Creation of new jobs in the USA ...rat on your neighbours and earn money

Right !!!   Now the most corrupt administration in the history of the USA will pay cash to informants ratting on their neighbours if they suspect them to be cheating on their taxes.  Right now the encouragement is to blow the whistle on the business community, but what are the bets that it  will  soon spread to every single taxpaying individual?  And guess who will do the ratting?  This is Obama's America. 

Chicago and Cook County residents aren’t the only ones about to get shocking tax news; the city is debuting a “tax whistle-blower” plan that could turn neighbor against neighbor in Chicago’s business community.
The folks at city hall will pay cash bounties to informants who turn in business tax cheats around the city. The reward would amount to some sort of percentage of the tax money that the city recovers.

NDP MP praises disruptive tactics of environmental hooligans

This is what the madness in Canada has come to.  MPs now praise hooligans who disrupt sessions in the House of Commons. Shame on MP Cullen.  Instead of setting a good example to the misguided, he throws fuel into the fire.
NDP MP Nathan Cullen, who stood outside watching after the protesters were ushered from the building, praised the disruptive tactics.

"It's pretty powerful, there's no doubt about it, young people getting this animated," said Cullen.

"We always say we want them interested in the House of Commons. They've chosen this path."

The scum that preys on children.......

some days there is no end to the news about child molestation and child slavery. Today is one of those days. Over the weekend, authorities in the USA have made close to 700 arrests in 36 cities and rescued 52 children, one of them just 10 years old. It makes me so sick to my stomach to even read these articles, but read we must to understand that slavery has not been abolished, it is very much alive and kicking and targeting the vulnerable amongst us.

Victor Malarek: Men who buy sex feeds human trafficking

Many of us know Victor Malarek from his hosting of the The Fifth Estate and W-Five. He is also the author of several books and is a staunch supporter of stricter laws for criminals found guilty of human trafficking.

Malarek is an investigative reporter and has written a couple of  books on the sex trade industry in Canada. His latest work, "The Johns: Sex for Sale and the Men who Buy it" lays the blame of human trafficking at the feet of men who buy sex.

In a recent interview, Malarek said:
"There is a lot of 'wink, wink, nudge, nudge' still in our police forces, all the way up to the Crowns (prosecutors) and into the courts. That horse-blinder thinking has got to stop. We have to start looking at the reality that is out there, and the reality is that these women are being prostituted worldwide and throughout North America and Canada."

"They are the victims of a system that is in place for men, so you have to decriminalize the women and criminalize the men. Once you do that, you send out the message that it is men who are responsible, and you will see things start to change."

Senator Yonah Martin speaks on Human Trafficking in Canada

On October 22, the Hon.Sen. Yonah Martin, who is a staunch sponsor of Bill C268 gave a resounding speech.

Some highlights here:
...Imani Nakpangi, who is the first person in Canada convicted of human trafficking involving a minor, received a three-year sentence for the trafficking of a 15-year-old girl but was credited with 13 months for pre-trial custody. He made over $350,000 sexually exploiting her for over two years before she was able to escape. He brutally controlled "Eve" by assaulting her, threatening her, threatening to kidnap her brother and threatening to harm her parents. Without conscience, he used his illicit profits to purchase a BMW and a large home in Niagara Falls for himself. He will spend less time in jail for this conviction than he spent exploiting and brutalizing this vulnerable girl whose life he has completely destroyed. This sentence, and another recent case of Michael Lennox Mark, is even more appalling. Last year, Montreal resident Michael Lennox Mark received a two-year sentence, but with double credit for the year served before his trial, the man who horrifically victimized a 17-year-old girl over two years spent only a week in jail after his conviction.
The girls in both these cases lived in sheer horror during their victimization, and continue to live in fear of their perpetrators who are back on the streets far too soon. The sentences of Imani Nakpangi and Michael Lennox Mark represent a serious failure of our current criminal justice system to protect the young victims. We can correct this imbalance and fill the gap in the form of Bill C-268. We must ensure that those who engage in such heinous conduct are brought to justice, and that their punishment appropriately reflects the gravity of their crime.....

Before the Fact

Long ago I had read a book titled "Before the Fact" where the central character is very aware that her husband wants to murder her. She knows that he is planning it and she knows he wants to make it look like either a suicide or death by natural causes and this masochistic woman pretends she is unaware of his intentions and lets him carry out the act thus becoming an accessory in her own murder. I believe the book was made into a movie.

Same scenario with Britian, only this time it is not a book we are reading or a movie we are watching. It is the real thing.

Leading members of a group that wants to bring down the British state and replace it with a dictatorship under Islamic law have secured more than £100,000 of taxpayers’ money for a chain of schools.

Accounts filed at the Charity Commission show that the Government paid a total of £113,411 last year to a foundation run by senior members and activists of Hizb ut-Tahrir — a notorious Islamic extremist group that ministers promised to ban.

The public money helped run a nursery school and two Islamic primary schools where children are taught key elements of Hizb’s ideology from the age of five.

Ahh hah ....what do we have here ?! Justice Bardwell was a DEMOCRAT until 11 months ago

Smack!!!   And double smack!!!   Where do you find the most racists, lefty boys and girls?  In camps other than the Conservatives, that's where. This racist guy must have lost it when Obama became Prez and out of racist frustration, switched camps.

Oops! When the media reported that Louisiana Justice of the Peace E. Keith Bardwell is a Republican, they left out one very important detail – he was a lifelong Democrat until switching his party affiliation in December, 2008.

That, of course, means that Bardwell was a registered Democrat when he declined to perform four previous interracial marriages.

iPods and Laptops to the "underserved"

That must be a typo for sure, is that what you are thinking? It would have read "undeserved" in a sane and sober world. But, unfortunately we are looking at a topsy-turvy America. It's a crying shame that half the taxpayers probably do not own iPods but their tax dollars will go towards giving these expensive gadgets like confetti to those who are on welfare. This is Obama's USA.

.......It could be coming some day to a neighborhood near you. Proponents tout it as a model that can be replicated in any of the 3,200 public housing authorities across the U.S. The supposedly innovative model program is designed to address the digital divide between public housing residents and the rest of the city. The Minneapolis proposal targets nearly 5,000 households in public housing high rises that are apparently unable to receive the city’s own public WiFi service. Residents who “graduate” from the first level (reportedly seven hours) of the city’s so-called Broadband University (BBU) “will be eligible to receive their choice of wifi-enabled devices—laptops or handheld iPod Touches,” according to the proposal’s executive summary. The plan estimates the number of trainees at 6,300 in what could be called the BBU Class of 2010. ......

Have you heard of Iggy and the Keyboard Cat ?

Keyboard Cat is an Internet meme. It consists of footage from 1984 of "Fatso", a cat (now deceased) owned by Charlie Schmidt of Spokane, Washington, wearing a blue shirt and "playing" an upbeat rhythm on an electronic keyboard, in reality being manipulated like a puppet by Schmidt. The clip, originally posted to YouTube as "Charlie Schmidt's 'cool cat'", has gained popularity by being appended to blooper and other viral videos as if to "play" that person offstage after the mistake or gaffe in a similar manner as getting the hook in the days of vaudeville, usually accompanied with the title Play Him Off, Keyboard Cat or a variant. The first such video was created by Brad O'Farrell, who secured Schmidt's permission to use the footage. Over four thousand such videos now exist, with a website created to collect such videos.  Source: Wiki

UN = Useless Nobodies .... so tell me again, why is Canada funding them?

This is a WTF moment for many Americans.
For those of you who have never even heard of a “Special Rapporteur,” you may be surprised to find out that one has been appointed by the United Nations (UN), under a special mandate from the UN Human Rights Council (the successor to the corrupt and anti-Israel UN Commission on Human Rights), to open a probe—for the first time ever— into human rights violations by the United States because of a perception that there isn’t enough affordable public housing in urban areas.

The world is full of mysteries

Long read but fascinating to the end.

On Tuesday, March 11th, 2008, somebody — nobody knows who — made one of the craziest bets Wall Street has ever seen. The mystery figure spent $1.7 million on a series of options, gambling that shares in the venerable investment bank Bear Stearns would lose more than half their value in nine days or less. It was madness — "like buying 1.7 million lottery tickets," according to one financial analyst.

But what's even crazier is that the bet paid...............
Soros???? hmmmm

The world is full of crazies

Now they are after our pets, or the kind of pets we normally would keep. Instead of the traditional dog or cat,  keeping  "edible" pets is what we should do,  all in the name of saving the environment

....a study by Victoria University (New Zealand) professors Brenda and Robert Vale, architects who specialize in sustainable living.

They advise in the study, published in New Scientist and in their new book, "Time To Eat The Dog" (we are not making this up), that because of the impact of pets on the earth, people should have pets that are edible.

They do not actually say your wiener dog should be on the menu. But they've calculated the carbon emissions created by popular pets, taking into account the ingredients of pet food and the land needed to create them. They advise having pets like rabbits or chickens. Maybe we could start a Cash for Cluckers program.

"If you have a German shepherd or similar-sized dog, for example, its impact every year is exactly the same as driving a large car around," Brenda Vale said...........

The silicone silliness of Pamela Anderson

She is ashamed of her homeland's seal hunt, and I for one am ashamed she is Canadian.

Pamela Anderson cuddled a seal mascot Friday and used her iconic Barbie-like assets to draw attention to what she called the "shameful practice" of seal hunting in her homeland. Anderson told a gathering outside Ontario's legislature that she wanted to save Canada from further international embarrassment over a "barbaric massacre."

"When I travel all over the world, the Canadian seal hunt is a huge issue that people talk to me about," she said. "So I'm trying to save some embarrassment."

Sarah Palin goes rogue .......decidedly

Very interesting development in the NY-23 Congressional District upcoming election. Sarah Palin endorses the candidate Doug Hoffman, a candidate that the GOP were ignoring having thrown their support behind Dede Scozzafava.  Palin has all the guts in the world and then some. Big feather in her cap if Hoffman wins.

Will Jason Kenney's Dept keep their word or sway like straws when the Left comes puffing?

We should keep a close eye on the developments.

.....The Canadian government will move to deport any found to have terrorist or criminal backgrounds, said Alykhan Velshi, the Minister's director of communications and parliamentary affairs: "The government will strenuously argue that every single one of these individuals with terrorist or criminal backgrounds - and that includes membership in the murderous Tamil Tigers - is ineligible to make a refugee claim in Canada."

"We won't allow Canada to become a place of refuge for terrorists, thugs, snakeheads and other violent foreign criminals. Nor will we support those who want to create a two-tier immigration system: one tier for law-abiding immigrants who wait patiently in the queue, and a second, for-profit tier for criminals and terrorists who pay human smugglers to help them jump the queue."......

CBC's title is blatantly STUPID: " Winnipeg's poor sell meds to get by"

Is it any wonder that CBC and CTV are loathed by many of us?  If one goes by the title of this article, you would presume that the homeless are only given meds and no money (the meds themselves probably cost the taxpayer more than the welfare payments doled out each month). However, the impression the reporter wants to give us is that the government is not doing enough  for the poor homeless people of Winnipeg  and  that is the reason why these people have to sell their meds to get by.

What about the welfare checks that these people get? What do they do with that money? Did the reporter bother to ask the people who were interviewed or just wrote out  this slanted piece of news to vilify the Canadian government ?

One of the woman interviewed said: “You need hairspray and deodorant and a toothbrush,” she said. “They’re not supplied [at the shelter], so what are you going to do?”

Did the reporter stop to think exactly what this woman is expecting from the government? This homeless person needs a hairspray? And, how much does a toothbrush cost? And how many times in a year does one need a fresh toothbrush?

A more beneficial reporting would have been to report to us what the homeless do with the money they get.
I would have asked these questions:
1) How many bottles of wine did you drink today and how much did they cost you?
2) How many times did you shoot up today and what did you pay for each shot?
3) How much did you make today by panhandling and being a pest to the general public?
4) Is there any water supply at the shelter?  Oh there is?!  When was the last time you took a bath?
5) How many packs of cigs did you smoke today and how much did they cost?

CBC, either you report the RIGHT kind of news otherwise kindly just SHUT UP.

Remember when the CEO of GM had to step down because the great one ordained it to be so ? Well, see how soon we get used to the tricks of socialism. Here is another giant step on that road of peril that our neighbour is travelling at breakneck speed.

Insiders have leaked to the news media that the WH will announced shortly that the honchos at 7 firms that had taken the stimulus lifesavers will have to take a pay cut of at least 50%. Nice... eh? Yes, the salaries and bonuses these guys lay claim to, is disgraceful. But, for the government to lay down the terms? Unbelievable !!!

ACORN lies and lies and lies and lies and lies.... okay you got it

Hannah and O'Keefe were never kicked out of the Philadelphia office like ACORN claimed they were and the MSM gleefully plastered that bit of news all over. The more they lie, the bigger the hole they are digging for themselves.  Makes you wonder how many more videos this dynamic duo have stashed away.

Real life is stranger than fiction

.....In 1983, I was in control of the security guards union owned by Colombo family associate, Daniel Cunningham. We had decided to attempt to unionize the security guards in all of the hotels in Atlantic City. In accordance with mob protocol I met with then Philadelphia mob boss Nicky Scarfa who had had control of much of the mob business in Atlantic City and told him of my plans to unionize the guards. Scarfa gave me his blessings and told me to be prepared to play hardball with the hotel management. He told me to have picketers in front of the hotel day and night until management caved in to the union’s demands to organize their guards. I contacted the Reverend Al and told him of my plans and that I would need picketers in front of the hotel. His response to me was, “For the right price, I will have 10 busloads of the nastiest looking n*****’s slamming the front doors of those hotels day and night.” Daniel Cunningham later became a government informant and told the FBI of my involvement with him and the guards union. The matter later became a count in a federal racketeering indictment I was charged with in 1985....

How many islamist supporters do you want in your government Canada ?

h/t: commentor at Toronto 18 videos article:

........Harel should have more than Labonté's dubious character to contend with in the public forum. She should be explaining why a known supporter of Islamist militancy is running for office under her aegis. A certain Najat Boughaba is a candidate for Vision Montreal in the riding of St Léonard West.............

..........On her website Boughaba claims to adhere to Quebec values of "peace, liberty and equality," but many associations on Boughaba's c.v. contradict such facile lip service to democratic values. For example, Boughaba was an active member of the Centre Communautaire Musulman de Montréal (CCMM). In 2006, following the arrest of 17 alleged terrorists in Toronto (some of them found guilty), Boughaba, under the name of Najad Moustapha, took part in a press conference organized by the CCMM, at which they read a fatwa urging the media to transmit Islam's message of peace drawn up by their spiritual guide, Iraqi ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani who, a few months prior to the conference, had announced on his website that all homosexuals, both male and female, should be executed "in the worst possible manner." (Curiously, the fatwa against male homosexuals was removed from the site, but not the fatwa against females; in any case, the ayatollah has never revoked his condemnation of either.) Moreover, according to Islamist watchdog, the CCMM published on its own website a warning to the effect that girls who did not wear the hijab ran the risk of being raped and having "illegitimate children." ................

Yet another lefty blogger tries to ridicule Sarah Palin

It is truly amazing what pettiness one can find if you hold your nose and make yourself take a quick trip to the stinking levels where many of the lefty bloggers make their dwelling.

This one has linked to a resume of Sarah Palin's and the blogger seems to be damned sure that the resume was linked by Palin herself. The blogger and his fellow travellers are dancing around and one can even imagine them clapping in glee that Palin has now fallen on hard times and is out there looking for a job. Being lefties, and lovers of brown envelops,  I am sort of  blown away that they have knowledge of  websites where you can post your resumes IF you want to work for a living.

Maybe, Palin has linked her resume to prove that she HAS a resume, a resume that is sadly missing for the Prez of the USA. But, do the lefty bloggers stop to think that perhaps IF Palin has indeed linked her resume, she is being ambiguous and her intent might have a double-edge and ever so snidely she might be saying "See, here is my resume for the world to see as I have nothing to hide. Oh, BTW, have you seen your President's resume ?"
In a coming-out speech interrupted time and again by cheering, placard-waving Republican delegates, Palin mixed ridicule and venom in portraying Obama as an elitist who has accomplished nothing and is more interested in promoting himself than his country.
She presented her own, sanitized resumé, telling the country she had risen from self-described hockey mom, to PTA member, to small town mayor to state governor.
"I guess a small town mayor is sort of like a `community organizer,'" she said in a reference to Obama's early experience in Chicago, "except that you have actual responsibilities."
Sometimes, when you feel a little lethargic, take a stroll on the other side and read the madness put forth by the lefties. It will wake you up with a start and you will wonder who let these loopy folks out of the madhouse. Your pulse will shoot up and then.... goodbye lethargy.

Yet another example of Leftist hypocrisy....a disease that plagues the Left endlessly

In 2001, when Republicans were in power, the loud-mouth hypcritical  hussy Maureen Dowd, wrote in the mouth-piece of the Left, the rapidly sliding downhill  NY Times:
Even as the White House preaches tolerance toward Muslims and Sikhs, it is practicing intolerance, signaling that anyone who challenges the leaders of an embattled America is cynical, political and—isn’t this the subtext?—unpatriotic… We should dread a climate where the jobs of columnists and comedians are endangered by dissent.—
Now, we have this:
Whether it’s FOX News or Rush Limbaugh or CNBC—the Obama Administration has openly and shamelessly targeted dissenting media figures. And even told the press how they were going to do it. And naturally the same defenders of the press who furrowed their brows when Ari Fleischer suggested that maybe an obnoxious comedian should think twice before calling the 9/11 terrorists courageous and the US Air Force cowardly… are cheering the media crackdown on.

Daniel Greenfield of sultanknish blog on the hypocrisy of the media

The never-ending hypocrisy of the Left

The Left are so full of hatred toward George Bush that even after the man is no longer a resident of the WH they continue to make death threats and even threaten to blow up a statue of him.

And, the anti-Bush rallies were rife with posters calling for the death of Bush in no uncertain terms.

And then, we have these "twisted thongs snapped from the nether regions and now residing in the cranial nook" bloggers who make a big boohoooooo empty noises about Obama getting death threats.

Death threats to George Bush and ridicule of everything he did was a constant occurrence, and hardly anybody made much of it. Threats, ridicule and criticism should be taken as being a part and parcel of anybody who happens to be a public figure. If they cannot handle it, too bad.

However, it is not surprising that the Left, being the natural cry babies that they are, whine and boohoo, waaaah, waaah waaaah about it 24/7. They might be 60+ years old but their thinking capacity remains perpetually at the level of a 2 year old brat, a cranky one at that.

When the Left makes threats, those are not threats, silly. They are just availing of their political free speech. That political free speech thingy is the proprietorial birthright of the Left and the Left alone. Everybody else, vamoose, off with your heads.

Just when you think you have got used to the hypocrisy oozing out from the Leftosphere, they bring out yet another truckload of it.

Three cheers for Tim Hudak ..... Ontario PC Leader calls for public inquiry

Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party have called for a Public Inquiry into the $1 Billion McGuinty eHealth scandal.

Hudak said:

“Only the Premier has the power to call the kind of inquiry that the public deserves to see. Dalton McGuinty’s refusal to do so will go down as just one more case of Liberal obstruction.”

Hudak says only a Public Inquiry will answer these questions:

Why did the McGuinty government block the Auditor General’s investigation?
Why did Liberal Cabinet Ministers break rules to give untendered contracts to Liberal friends and insiders?
What personal role did Dalton McGuinty play in this 5-year eHealth boondoggle?
When will George Smitherman, the architect of this scandal, admit his role?

Glenn Beck is the MAN

Here are a couple of segments from today's show  for our delight and for the rising of bile in lefty throats. They are full of it anyway.

Maryam and Marzieh .... please don't give up

Two beautiful girls, Maryam Rostampour and Marzieh Amirizadeh Esmaeilabad, members of the Christian community in Iran, were arrested on 5 March 2009 by the Iranian security forces. Their crime: Attending religious gatherings and handing out Bibles. Amnesty International's efforts and the efforts of other NGOs have failed to secure their release and these beautiful girls are reported to be suffering from infections and severe back problems due to their confinement with close to 50 other inmates in close quarters. Numerous Christian outfits have tried to get the Iranian authorities to allow medical assistance, but to no avail.

According to an article in Washington Times a month ago
What natural beauty Maryam Rostampour, 27, and Marzieh Amirizadeh Esmaeilabad, 30, had at the beginning of the year has certainly disappeared after a six-month stint in one of the world's worst jails. Marzieh especially suffers from back problems, an infected tooth and blinding headaches.

The article in the Washington Times dated Sep 10 was the last bit of news the West had on these girls. Any Iranian bloggers with more updated news, please send link in comments so we can keep this issue alive.

Religious minorities like the Christians and the people of the Baha'i faith are getting the short end of the stick in Iran.

The world would be a dull place without American nuts

via Drudge Oath keepers ......More specifically, the group's members, which number in the thousands, pledge to disobey orders they deem unlawful, including directives to disarm the American people and to blockade American cities. By refusing the latter order, the Oath Keepers hope to prevent cities from becoming "giant concentration camps," a scenario the 44-year-old Rhodes says he can envision happening in the coming years.

It's a Cold War-era nightmare vision with a major twist: The occupying forces in this imagined future are American, not Soviet.

"The whole point of Oath Keepers is to stop a dictatorship from ever happening here," Rhodes, a former Army paratrooper and Yale-trained lawyer, said in an interview with the Review-Journal. "My focus is on the guys with the guns, because they can't do it without them.

"We say if the American people decide it's time for a revolution, we'll fight with you."........

A Letter to the Editor

h/t Rhonda:   A letter to the editor, supposedly published in a Canadian newspaper is making the rounds via email. I liked it and I agree with it wholeheartedly.

So many letter writers have explained how this land is made up of immigrants. Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people why today's Canadian is not willing to accept the new kind of immigrant any longer.

Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to Canada , people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in Halifax and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new Canadian households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.

Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labour laws to protect them. All they had were the skills, craftsmanship and desire they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out.Canadians fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Russia,Sweden,Poland and so many other places. None of these first generation Canadians ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Canadians fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan. They were defending the Freedom as one people. When we liberated France , no one in those villages was looking for the Ukrainian-Canadian or the German-Canadian or the Irish-Canadian.The people of France saw only Canadians.

And we carried one flag that represented our country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be a Canadian. They stirred the melting pot into one red and white bowl.

And here we are in 2009 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes a Canadian passport and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I'm sorry, that's not what being a Canadian is all about. Canadians have been very open-hearted and open-minded regarding immigrants, whether they were fleeing poverty, dictatorship, persecution, or whatever else makes us think of those aforementioned immigrants who truly did ADOPT our country, and our flag and our morals and our customs, and left their wars, hatred, and divisions behind. I believe that the immigrants who landed in Canada in the early 1900s deserve better than that for the toil, hard work and sacrifice those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags, fighting foreign battles on our soil, making Canadians change to suit their religions and cultures, and wanting to change our countries fabric by claiming discrimination when we do not give in to their demands.

Its about time we get real and stand up for our forefathers rights, we are CANADIAN Lest we forget it I am a Native of this Country & proud of it!

NO MORE not saying CHRISTMAS in stores and our schools!

Troubling Partnerships

From Hudson Institute
Politics has changed since the attacks of 9/11, 2001. As is becoming increasingly apparent, entire swathes of the Left have turned Right, even fascist, particularly as they have aligned themselves with Middle Eastern Islamist organization, such as Hamas and Hezbollah and their representatives in the West.....

.....In the West, neo-fascist movements of the “blood and soil” type have - like their Leftwing counterparts - sought to associate themselves with Islamist groups. And on a few occasions all three have joined together. In the Canadian province of Calgary earlier this year, for example, the Aryan Guard marched with Muslims and Leftwing “anti-fascists” against Israel.........

.......Consequently, some paleocons, as Ilana Mercer pointed out recently, “are more devoted to the Palestinian cause than most left-liberals,” and some are even prepared to “go to bat” for them. Most notably, Pat Buchanan has repeatedly endorsed Barack Obama, because of the president’s views on Israel, and his earlier determination to make nice with Iran’s Islamofascist regime......

Everything is wrong with the USA banking establishments. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

They have resumed handing out easy mortgages with a vengence, as if to make up for lost time. If  they  go into yet another downward spiral, that's it folks... that's it. What kind of madness is making these establishments hand out easy mortgages to people that their instincts, even instincts that are half dead or frozen, must be telling them not to. Could it be another directive from the madmen and madwomen in the WH?  Anything is possible. There is no way banks can  be this foolhardy and  survive.
Hope someone is keeping a sharp eye on our Canadian banks to ensure that they do not follow suit.

Atlas Shrug's Geller on how Jew-haters are holding sway over Obama's website

Pamela Geller's article at Big Government is an eye-opener.
During the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama’s website, Organizing for America – over which Obama has editorial control — played host to a series of vile anti-American, Jew-hating posts and pieces. It was overwhelming. There were numerous, heinous calls for Jewish genocide and incitement to hatred. And it is happening again, right now, on the official website of the man who is supposedly the leader of the free world.

The site was and is closely policed. The site moderators remove material that they consider to be “disrespectful to our other users” and to “detract from a welcoming community where all people can engage in positive discourse.” What they find disrespectful can be interesting: once during the campaign a conservative blogger, Bill Levinson, posted a blog on Obama’s website consisting entirely of a series of quotations from Obama’s own book, Dreams of my Father. Obama’s team did not approve of their standard-bearer’s words, and so Levinson’s blog and account were deleted from the Obama site in just under 36 hours. That’s right, Barack Obama’s website banned Obama’s own words. But the most disgusting anti-semitic ravings remained on the site, along with blogs advocating anarchy and the overthrow of the United States Congress.

In April 2008 a typical post appeared, claiming that “Jews owe Africa and Africans everything they have today because if Africa did not shelter them when they were homeless and starving, they would not be here today.” And in July 2008, a piece called “They fear peace” by Kate Smythe-Blake went up on Obama’s site. “The kike filth,” Smythe-Blake ranted, “are trying to steal this election from us. But this is our time. The kike live in fear of peace. They fear happiness. The thought of people living happily in peace without killing each other frightens the horde of kike that runs our government. But when pieces of kike use their kike manipulation tactics to stop Barack, it is time to strike back. There is nothing a kike army can do when faced with progressive people who are determined to achieve peace. We will achieve lasting peace.”.........

Comparison of two leaders and comparison of two countries

h/t CanadianSentinel      Over at PajamasMedia you will find a comparison between Stephen Harper and Barack Obama titled "Tale of Two Leaders".   Pretty good reading on the whole.  However,  in the comments section someone is throwing scalding super hot boiling oil on Canada and Canadian policies. I wonder how many American conservatives see us this way:
.....It’s a country with 80% the productivity level of the US and a 20-40% higher cost of living. At the margin that’s a huge hit to one’s standard of living and it’s all due to sloppiness, inefficiency and political reward of rent-seeking behavior.
I won’t even get into the health-care nightmare (don’t kid yourself that a two-tier system will flourish within the next generation given how brainwashed Canadians are about the nanny state.) Having seen the innards and operations of a top flight Canadian hospital when our child was born I prayed every day thereafter that we wouldn’t get sick before we were able to leave the country. The system is simply macabre.

I won’t get into the endemic political apathy. Or the terrible deficiencies of the parliamentary system that create a political class structurally unresponsive to constituents. Or the ludicrously illiberal and left-wing state-run media. Or the hostile atmosphere toward individual liberty and free speech. Or the mediocrity in schools and universities that state monopoly and enforced egalitarianism fosters. Or the willfully self-destructive bending over backwards to encourage immigrants (which make up an incredibly high proportion of young Canadians these days) to maintain their entirely illiberal and medieval cultural practices after becoming citizens. Or the fact that in order to become a citizen one must pledge fealty to the Queen of England (she’s the head of state in Canada.) Yes, the constitution in Canada was an act of the British parliament until 1982. And even today Canada is ruled by the Queen, however disinterestedly. Incredible.....

Kevin Wilson. Is he going to be the Big Winner, Alex ?

Kevin Wilson from Windsor, Ontario, dethroned a 5-time Jeopardy champ on Friday night and will appear again on Monday to grab some more money. Right now he is grinning having won US $31K. Nice going Kevin. Keep it up and make us proud. Wilson works for Sid Ryan's outfit as some sort of manager or something.

......Wilson is not the first Canadian to cash in from the high-profile quiz show.

Doug Hicton of Regina won big in 2007, earning more than $85,000 over three shows, plus a cheque for $100,000 as the runner-up in that year's Tournament of Champions.

In 1992, Robert Slaven of Yellowknife, N.W.T., used his knowledge to win five straight times and was invited to participate in the show's Tournament of Champions. In all, he won more than $63,000.

Whether Wilson can achieve that kind of success remains to be seen, but the quiz whiz is eager to bait the hook for viewers of the show.

"You'll have to watch Monday night to see how it pans out," he said.

CNN's Rick Sanchez apologizes

It is ludicrous to paint Rush Limbaugh as a racist individual. Rush has been the biggest supporter of Jindal, whose origins are Indian, and in fact Rush has been his only vocal supporter even after Jindal's disastrous response to Obama's congressional address some months back. Rush's partner on his radio program and his  long-time friend is Bo Snerdley, and until this recent nonsense put about by the Left, nobody even knew that this voice on the radio belonged to a black man. Well.....that has now changed and Bo Snerdley has now offically become an Obama criticizer.
Obama and his administration are behaving very childishly. The more they whine, the more they are laying themselves open for critics to materialize with  freshly sharpened arrows that will  mercilessly keep hitting their targets.

Hard Witching and saskatoons

Almost 15 years in Canada and I did not know that Saskatoon is not just a city in Saskatchewan but it is also a shrub yielding berries called saskatoons.
The Saskatoon, Saskatoon berry, serviceberry or Juneberry is a shrub native to North America from Alaska across most of western Canada and in the western and north central United States. It grows from sea level in the north of the range, up to 2,600 metres (8,530 ft) altitude in California and 3,400 metres (11,000 ft) in the Rocky Mountains.
Today has been a "fruitful" day as I learnt something new and it came about because I have decided to read mainly Canadian authors for the next few months and the following paragraph from the book I am reading is how I came across "saskatoons" :
Though we hated those long, hot, agonizingly boring walks, whether thourgh the Sand Hills or the river hills, we always chose the Sand Hills if consulted. For one reason, there were no rattlers, curled like fat grey muscles behind rocks and beneath ground cedar, and no bull snakes either, which though harmless (as Grandpa continually pointed out), could startle us both into tears by appearing suddenly in the sagebrush at our feet, long and black and thick as a man's arm. For another, the Sand Hills were full of chokecherries and saskatoons, and we could sit on the great flesh-coloured dunes, writing our names with sticks and letting the hot, soft sand squish up between our toes, pretending to be marooned on a desert island , pretending the dry, rolling scrubland for miles around us was all water.
It's from "A Hard Witching & Other Stories" by Jacqueline Baker who grew up in Saskatchewan.  I am only a few pages into the book but I can see that it is going to be a good read.

Sarah Palin is a Woman of Substance

There should be no doubt about that. Sarah Palin knows what it will take to bring prosperity to America and turn this recession into the biggest boom America has ever known and we being their neighbours and closest trading partners will also benefit. Although, I am a big fan of Palin's, and my readers know it by now, I am also a realist. I can see that Palin has enemies, and very strong ones, even in the Republican camp. Sad, but true. Anyone who doubts her ability to govern should talk to the general populace of Alaska and if the glowing reports from them is any indication, then Palin will one day make an excellent US Prez. Hopefully, that will be in 2012. If not, the woman is still very young.

This is from her facebook entry of a few hours ago:
Petroleum is a major part of America’s energy picture. Shall we get it here or abroad?
Given that we’re spending billions of stimulus dollars to rebuild our highways, it makes sense to think about what we’ll be driving on them. For years to come, most of what we drive will be powered, at least in part, by diesel fuel or gasoline. To fuel that driving, we need access to oil. The less use we make of our own reserves, the more we will have to import, which leads to a number of harmful consequences. That means we need to drill here and drill now.........

US troop funds diverted to pet projects

Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis.

Among the 778 such projects, known as earmarks, packed into the bill: $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans and $20 million to launch an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat.

Rush Limbaugh is dropped from bidding and the gloating derision commences

The uproar and the pure horrid jealously and dangerous hatred that has erupted in the USA after it was reported that Limbaugh was one of the co-buyers of the Rams, goes to show the raw power that the unreasonable can wield in our society.

The chairman of the group that was planning on buying the St.Louis Rams has turned chicken and decided to drop Limbaugh from the bid over the controversy raging over remarks that are falsely attributed to the radio personality.

The leftosphere has gone stark raving hopping mad over remarks that they are attributing to Limbaugh which he says he has never uttered and has now initiated libel suits against those who insist he did:
I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.
The Left also says he made this remark about the death of the man who assassinated MLK:
You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honour? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
 I hope Rush Limbaugh sues these people to kingdom come.

Now let's keep a count of all the leftish bloggers who will applaud this move

Every Muslim looks at Canada and sees a money cow. They come here for one reason and one reason only. To suck on the govt teats which are held in swollen readiness and pushed into their mouths like you would teach a new born to suckle at their mother's by the Lib and NDP, and boy are they doing a good job of it.

It pisses me no end that people take every advantage of this great nation of ours and then turn around and start chewing on the hand that feeds them. What also makes me want to throw up is how the leftist bloggers take up the cause of people who want to screw the Canadian govt. and they do it all in the name of fairness. Where is the fairness for your country, leftists ? Would you rather be fair to people who are taking your country for a ride? Madness.

Rush Limbaugh, liberals love to hate him

Read this article over at RedState. Emphasis mine.

.......So it is with great sadness that I see a man whose complete absence of racism made me receptive to his conservative message, is now vilified by the ignorant and the vile, as the antithesis.

It is with great sadness that I see otherwise brilliant journalists like Jason Whitlock rely upon unreliable sources for despicable false quotes rather than fact-check, or, pray tell, actually call Rush before going to press.

But I also know that it is not the recently released false quotes that are at the heart of the faux uproar attending a possible purchase of the St. Louis Rams. The fake quotes were first posted on line in 2005. Rush has been vilified since 1988 for accurate quotes, either taken out of context, or completely misunderstood. But the main reason for the uproar is that liberals see conservatism itself as racist or, rather, a threat to their own racism cloaked as compassion.

So, it is with even more sadness that I see ignorance and/or political correctness enforced like Stalinism (without the mass murder) among some NFL owners. One nugget from the Colt’s Irsay is a smoking gun to break through the ignorance, and that is his suggestion that Tony Dungy be asked his opinion of Rush..........

A day is not a proper day in BBC land unless the reputation of Israel has been further besmirched. And so it is with this excuse of a report which alleges that must end "unfair" detentions.

On the matter of fact, the detainees concerned are terrorist suspects, hence the anguish in BBC circles. Once again, the far-left B'Tselem group (and Hamoked) is behind this agitation. The BBC is careful to designate them simply as a "campaign group" when in fact they are an activist hard left and pro Palestinian. Whilst one can accept that B'Tselem will use loaded language, it's interesting to note how the BBC itself uses the term "incarceration" to describe how Israel deals with suspected terrorists. No bias? Sorry, when it's little Israel, the BBC is very careful to use the right language to ensure Israel always looks in the wrong.

Can you guess the word most used by Leftists?

RACIST. Yes, you are right! That was easy, wasn't it? The leftish media has been branding Rush Limbaugh as racist and attributing to him remarks that, according to him he has never uttered. Media Research Center is challenging networks like CNN and MSNBC to either provide proof that Limbaugh made the statements that they are smearing him withm or issue public apologies. The CNN anchor Rick Sanchez who stated that Limbaugh had uttered a "racist diatribe" on the "merits of slavery" on his show on Monday, has yet to apologize.

School girls attack a visually impaired grandma

This incident happened in Winnipeg and the sad thing is that people passing by did not come to the aid of the grandma and let the girls continue their attack on her.

......Chartrand, her grandson, who was riding on the back of the wheelchair, and Happy were on their way to a convenience store when the incident occurred shortly after noon on Oct. 5. The grandmother said they were attacked on the north sidewalk of Ellice Avenue between Banning and Arlington streets in the West End.

Chartrand said the girls are 12 to 14 years old and likely attend schools in the area. She said the girls were in her path -- purposely, she thinks -- so she asked them to move.

They did, but they also hurled insults. "They called me all kinds of dirty names. I tried to ignore them because I was worried about my grandson and dog," she said.

Moments after the trio passed, the girls hurled rocks, Chartrand said.......
