Tweet of the Day

O, Canada!

What would China do?

If you remember the post a few days back showing Al Gore being confronted in a bookstore, you may remember the ‘confrontee’ screaming out that the COP15 climate change crap has, rather than having much to do about the environment, and not just on Obama’s own admission, a security issue, but also rather a lot to do about eugenics, that favourite play toy of the Left. And sure, we’ve already heard about eco-ratbags suggesting governments ‘put something in the water’.

Well, Canada’s Financial Post, in an editorial no less, has made their stand… for a global one-child policy.

A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.

Interesting since it ain’t the rich countries having that much of a problem with exploding populations. In fact, two of the richest nations on the planet, Japan and Germany are actually experiencing negative population growth.  It’s the poor countries that are much more likely to have huge population growth. Look at that list in the link above. Take the top 30. It’s only poor and/or Muslim countries experiencing growth of about 2.5 or higher.

The FP’s stance is idiotic at best, and down right evil at worst. And how the hell would you police such a policy except in the developed world? That’d be a world which isn’t having a problem with exploding populations – no pun intended re countries experiencing problems re suicide bombers…

But the FP is trying to do what China would do, and is taking China’s lead.

COPENHAGEN: Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC) .

“Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture,” said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.

So we have a bunch of lefties taking the lead off a bunch of Commies? Gee, what could go wrong with that in a free, democratic society?

US Citizen? Sign the petition against cap n’ trade

If you’re a man-made global warming sceptic, or if you think the science perhaps isn’t settled, or if you are worried about a potential communist world government, or if you are worried about giant non-sovereign world taxes being imposed on all of us, or if you think the governments of this world already have too much power, or even if you’re not convinced yet either way, and don’t want a road paved that there’s no turning back on in just two short weeks, then sign this petition.


People literally right now are speaking at Copenhagen presenting the other side to this man-made CO2-driven man-made climate change/global warming argument. They will also be speaking tomorrow. Time is of the essence.


This post differs from the original. It came from watching the latest Monckton videos (the end of Part 4 of which part 1 was posted by 1.6 below), about a GLOBAL problem – but unfortunately only US citizens can sign that petition. Hence, first update removed, replaced with this.

Canada and US Dollar Approach Parity: Good News for John!

Not sure about those of us south of the 48th Parallel (and in North America), though.

Dollar 2.jpg

“<a href="By Matt Townsend

Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) — The Canadian dollar rallied for a third straight week, touching a 14-month high and moving closer to parity with its U.S. counterpart as signs of economic recovery pushed commodities and stocks higher.

Canada’s currency gained as crude oil, the nation’s largest export, surged 10 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpassed 10,000 for the first time in a year.”

How are you Ozzies doing?

Not far behind Canada, actually.


I’d much rather Obama try to achieve parity with the GB Pound Sterling. LOL!

Steyn ponders liberty in the technological era

For those of you who don’t read Tim Blair, here’s Mark Steyn on the radio.


Most of Antarctica Cooling, Ice Increasing

Red area is warming, rest is cooling, net ice increasing.

Red area is warming, rest is cooling, net ice increasing.

You read that right. Recent news makes it sound as if all of the antarctic sea ice is breaking up and drifting off to melt. Not true, according to recent ice core samples and temperature measurements.

“Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.

The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent’s western coast…

However, the picture is very different in east Antarctica, which includes the territory claimed by Australia.

East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week’s meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown “significant cooling in recent decades.”

Australia Antarctic Division glaciology program head Ian Allison said sea ice losses in west Antarctica over the past 30 years had been more than offset by increases in the Ross Sea region, just one sector of east Antarctica.”

Well, with enough cap and trade, perhaps we can turn the Americas and Australia into frozen deserts too.

Let History Record that Texas Lead American Reformation

I love being a Texan. Here’s one reason why. Texans are the first – but not the last, to be sure – to get fed up with our intrusive federal government.

“AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

Perry continued: “Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas.””

You go, Rick. More here, along with bracing video.

This is no small deal. The federal government has been pretending that the 10th Amendment doesn’t exist for almost a hundred years now – basically, since the end of the civil war. If governors start taking this to court, “The United States” could well become, “These United States” again – as they were pre-Lincoln – which would be nothing but good news. America was designed to be a federation of states, not a unitarian state. The US is just too big for that (As are Canada and Australia, for that matter).

Russia Backs Return to Gold Standard

It’s sort of a modified, limited hang-out, but Russia is promoting at least a partial return to the gold standard for international currencies.

“Arkady Dvorkevich, the Kremlin’s chief economic adviser, said Russia would favour the inclusion of gold bullion in the basket-weighting of a new world currency based on Special Drawing Rights issued by the International Monetary Fund.

Chinese and Russian leaders both plan to open debate on an SDR-based reserve currency as an alternative to the US dollar at the G20 summit in London this week, although the world may not yet be ready for such a radical proposal.”

Too funny: Having money backed by real value is “radical.” No, it isn’t, it’s moral… but you can be sure the Russians and Chinese are not proposing this for positive moral ends, rather they have designs on taking advantage of the US mountain of debt that Obi-One has buried us under to weaken us economically. Still, I’m glad they brought this up, because it will strike fear into a lot of arrogant hearts, or it ought to.

If some countries return to the gold standard, international financiers and financial institutions will flock to those currencies and the US dollar and other unbacked fiat currencies will plummet into worthlessness. If that doesn’t worry you, it should. The US, GB, Australia and other western nations are in no position to return to the gold standard: Too much money in circulation and nowhere near enough gold to hitch to it.

Still, at some point this is going to happen, even if it takes a total global financial meltdown to achieve it… and it just might.

The choices will come down to this…


…or this.


International Women’s Day Only for Canada, Evidently

So, Canadian MP Carol Hughes issues a “statement” for International Women’s Day, in which she pisses and moans about all of the really important women’s issues.

“Many events are being held across Canada today to celebrate International Women’s Day.

While the wage gap between men and women has narrowed since the 1970s, we are fighting the same battles we did 30 years ago.”

Yes, despite the fact that wage disparities are mostly a thing of the past, the feminotards are still fighting the same battles they did thirty years ago. Perhaps that’s a problem? Perhaps that is the problem?

“Using the cover of a fiscal crisis, the government has stripped the right of women to challenge pay-equity decisions.

Combined with the past decisions that ended the court challenges program and removed equality from the mandate of Status of Women Canada, this government has done all it can to ensure the ‘pink ghetto’ of underpaid and undervalued work will continue.”

No, what’s really happening here is that a feminist is lamenting the fact that there will be less work for shysters who file mostly frivolous lawsuits.

“Pay equity is not as simple as equal pay for doing the same job as a man.

What equity implies is that work of equal value receives similar compensation.

It is not as cut and dry , and often requires third-party intervention to settle disputes – the courts.”

I rest my case: Feminotards hate men… unless they’re lawyers wasting taxpayer money in court. Plus, they have reasoning abilities approaching absolute zero: Pay equity is exactly as simple as equal pay for doing the same job as a man.

Of course, she goes on and on and on like a broken fucking record on this one single topic, ignoring all of the real issues facing INTERNATIONAL women. Like, oh, I don’t know, let’s start with women in Muslim countries having their genitals mutilated so that they can never have orgasms, for starters (If Muslims think their god is so great, then why did their god fuck up and give women the physiology to enjoy sex, anyway? How come it’s left to mere men to fix their god’s mistake?).

Then, of course, she could have touched upon even more serious problems with Muslims in her very own Canada who kill women in the name of honor for such crimes against humanity as rejecting abusive husbands or being raped.

Yes, she has it exactly right: Wage disparities in Canada are the largest problem women face worldwide.

This is the kind of abject fuckwit you Canadians have running your government. Not that the US is doing any better, mind you. Here, we are getting the Obamateur Hour for at least four years. Tax cheats are running the Treasury, for crying out loud.

Of course, I’m a US citizen, but I was born in Newfoundland, so shit like this really pisses me off. Idiot politicians everywhere seem to have exactly no sense of perspective on anything right now. To call world politicians today dysfunctional would be giving them too much credit. They are actively working to be scumbags.


In Which BingBing Insults J.M.

So, I find that BingBing has a new group called, “World Class” to promote racial and cultural harmony but, strangely, J.M. is not invited!

“World Class is an organization in Seoul that brings together all nationalities to discuss world issues and break down cultural barriers and prejudice. We meet once a week. No Canadians please.”

Did I miss some dustup or other here between BingBing and J.M.?

Chill, these things happen with public transport

Actually, no. Incidents such as this should be taken very seriously. Err, maybe. Crazy and horrifying? Watch the video. You can hear passengers laughing, the doors are open barely a metre… hmm, not another sensationalist media beat up, surely not!

SkyTrain passengers had a wild ride Saturday when their train left New Westminster station with its doors still open.

Alarmed passengers huddled away from three sets of open doors, through which cars could be seen below on Stewardson Way as the train sped to 22nd Street station.

One passenger posted a camera phone video on YouTube and others described the incident as “crazy” and “horrifying.”

Check out the way horrifying and crazy video!

However, this is the bit that really caught my eye.

Vancouver has struggled with an extremely cold wintereven by Canadian standards — and the public transport network has been brought close to breaking point by frozen rivers, snowbound roads and frozen train track switches.


McCain’s Perfect Choice for a Running Mate: Governor Sarah Palin

While most of the pedantic, two-dimensional, inside-the-box-thinking, conservative political hacks are touting Tom Ridge for the slot (Not a bad guy, but…), David Freddoso notes a far superior choice has been proposed: The Republican Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

I believe this is a truly inspired idea. Gov. Palin ran as an anti-corruption outsider, and handily defeated a corrupt and entrenched Republican political machine. Plus, at 44, she would almost totally wipe the “age issue” McCain has off the slate, and since Obama is only two years her senior, there is no way they could attack her for her youth and inexperience: She has much more executive experience than Senator Obama has.

Not to mention the fact that, she’s a gorgeous woman who exudes mass quantities of charisma…


and has a super-solid family life.


Dibs on the eldest daughter! LOL!

This inspired choice would allow McCain to actually capitalize on his “maverick” persona, as Gov. Palin shook Alaska politics to the core: She’s a charming, charismatic woman, but she can also play with the big boys and kick ass.

What say ye?

UPDATE: Things are looking optimistic!

UPDATE II: Welcome to all 4500 8000 40,000 in the past few hours (so far!) people visiting us from Google. We’re a fairly opinionated right-wing blog, and you might like to take a look at our “About” page. You might also be interested in our other coverage of Sarah Palin and whether she becomes a prospective Vice President of the United States. You can find this coverage here and here. Personally, I hope she does, but you can feel free to debate the idea in comments below. All first comments are moderated, but unless you either insult or use severe profanity (and I mean severe by my standards, which generally only means the C U Next Tuesday word or the implication that someone has had a rather enjoyable erotic experience with someone who has borne a child), however if you come up with a new one, I may simply delete your comment. I, and all other contributors to this blog are more than fair in what we permit.

UPDATE III: Nayr Drahcir, don’t bother even trying. You will not be published.

UPDATE IV: A lot of people must like Palin.

UPDATE V: More coverage of Governor Sarah Palin and a theme song here.

UPDATE VI: Funniest observation on the announcement yet: “Put Obama and Palin on a basketball court one on one. Winner takes all!”

UPDATE VII: [spot_the_dog] No, we do not have any pictures of “Sarah Palin + Naked,” nor do we have any of “Sarah Palin + Swimsuit.” In the past 24 hours, there have been 157 separate searches on this site for “Sarah Palin Swimsuit,” and 161 separate searches for “Sarah Palin Naked.” I repeat, we have no bathing suit, swim suit, bikini, or naked pictures of Sarah Palin. What kind of people do you think we are, anyway? 😉

UPDATE VIIa: [spot_the_dog] Ace has noticed a similar search phenomenon on his blog and has a theory…

UPDATE VIII: A well-rounded view of the selection of Sarah Palin for the Vice President Nomination can be found here.

UPDATE IX:  We got it!  YES!  Nude photo of Sarah Palin right here!  (C’mon.  You know you want to click.)

UPDATE X: Feel free to visit our main page and read the latest posts we’ve written.

I apologize to our Canadian friends….

September 1st, is also THEIR Labour Day. Have a great weekend, Canada.

BTW…Ramadan-a-ding-dong starts at sundown, Monday.

It refers to the hot, dry sensation of thirst during this month of fasting
Ramadan scorches out evil like the sun scorches the earth
Just as heat shapes and influences all matter — organic and inorganic — so does Ramadan shape and influence the believer

There seems to be a lot of evil, Ramadan misses. All it has to do, is turn inwards. It doesn’t. Why? Just as heat shapes and influences all matter — organic and inorganic — so does Ramadan shape and influence the believer

A Gift for My Friend J.M.

Nice Leaves!

Nice Leaves!

It’s just a shame the season is so short up there.

Canada Charges Comedian with Not Being Funny. J.M. are you OK? Like do we have to smuggle you, into the U.S.?

The Canadian Human Rights Commission hits a new low by investigating a stand-up comic who heckled hecklers.

When an eight-year-old Guy Earle was bouncing on his bed, reciting along to Steve Martin albums and dreaming of being a famous stand-up comic, he never imagined how that fame would finally arrive: in the form of a Canadian Human Rights Commission (HRC) complaint, brought by a lesbian heckler, accusing Earle of not being funny.

After getting a degree in physics and working for the likes of Corning and the British Navy, the British-born Earle toured the U.S. and Canada, honing his comedy routines in more than a thousand performances over twenty years.

Earle takes his comedy seriously. He explains to Pajamas Media:

Stand-up is an art form. I like the guys that live this rule. Traditional “Lenny Bruce” school of comedy is my bread and butter. It must contain social commentary and have “a message” — not Carrot Top or prop acts.

He claims it was his dedication to his art that led to the events at Vancouver’s Zesty’s Restaurant on May 22, 2007; he wanted some hecklers to give the evening’s final open mic comic a break. He told Pajamas Media it’s something he’s done countless times before as an MC:

I’ve said some awfully derogatory remarks to people who show no respect to a live stage show. My remarks are meant to shock and silence an unruly, disruptive group or person. I have generally offended a few people over the years but I never regret it because it is a function of being in a live and dynamic show and my jabs never come unsolicited. I can be accused of acting in poor taste but I cannot be accused of hating.

The Vancouver Sun tried to sort out the “he saids” and “she saids” of the booze-event, but only Earle agreed to speak on the record:

Fascist versus Fascist



It’s not everyday one gets to see a Toronto Liberal Socialist Utopian handed an intellectual beating. In the end, the free market place of ideas, if allowed to prosper, will destroy socialism. Even as we speak, some of their diffinitive works are stacking up in the bargain bins.

UPDATE: Canada To Obama. Bite Our Ass…Pander to voters at peril, U.S. told

Big-city U. S. mayors and presidential hopeful Barack Obama, who joined the parade this week of ill-informed, U. S. anti-oil sands policies, should be careful what they wish for.

While the aim is undoubtedly to pander to the electorate in an election year charged with oil and climate-change debate, what they are stoking is an increasingly angry Canadian energy industry that is seriously looking at non-U. S. markets for its oil.

Here’s what Rick George, chief executive of Suncor Energy Inc., Canada’s largest single oil sands producer, said this week, reflecting rising frustration with the wave of American anti-oil sands policies:

“We are down to very limited amounts of spare capacity,” he said. “Mexico is in very steep decline. The North Sea is in decline. Venezuela is likely to slip from here. There are problems in Nigeria, Russia. The world will absorb this oil one way or the other. If the U. S. doesn’t take it, then we will develop other markets.”

What a guy…This Obama, huh? Not even Pres…and he offends one of our strongest bonds…AND Obama thinks BUSH and McCain suck!!??

Message to J.M. Nice try…and HA! Canadian officials say 6th floating foot a hoax

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – British Columbia’s coroner’s office called the discovery of a sixth floating foot a hoax, saying Thursday it was really an animal paw stuffed inside a running shoe.Initially, Wednesday’s discovery deepened a mystery surrounding the feet, all of which were recovered within the past year floating within a few miles of each other along island shorelines in the Strait of Georgia near Vancouver.

But the sixth find was determined a hoax after coroner’s officials determined that it was the skeletal remains of an animal’s foot.

Lakes across Canada to be turned into mine dump sites

Lakes are in B.C., Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories and Nunavut

CBC News has learned that 16 Canadian lakes are slated to be officially but quietly “reclassified” as toxic dump sites for mines. The lakes include prime wilderness fishing lakes from B.C. to Newfoundland.

Whatever side J.M. and Wonder Woman are on…I’m with them.
