The Palestinians are the problem

First and foremost, it proves what people who perceive reality have been saying for decades: The great majority of Palestinians -- like the majority of Arabs elsewhere and like vast numbers of non-Arab Muslims -- want Israel destroyed. Even granting legitimacy to the argument that the complete moral, financial and political corruption of Fatah was partly responsible for the Hamas victory, those who voted for Hamas did not find that organization's terror, religious celebration of murder or charter calling for Israel's destruction an impediment to their vote.(Cont'd @ The Reclusive Antiquarian)

The Cure That Speaks Not Its Name

In the current culture war it has become politically incorrect to even suggest that a homosexual lifestyle could possibly lead one to a higher risk of contracting AIDS. Finding stories that suggest this is quite the challenge too... (cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

The Philosophy of Change

Well, a good friend of mine got philosophical on her blog, and as I was standing outside having a quick butt, I decided that the topic was something that could be dealt with in a separate post...(cont'd @ Canadian Honky-Tonk Bar Association)

Don't Pickton at it, you'll only make it worse...

In the news again recently is alleged (hah!) serial killer Robert (Willy) Pickton.

His case is finally making some progress. What is somewhat startling though is that he has entered a plea of "not guilty" for all 27 murders he is currently being charged with... (cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)

The Liberal Leadership Contenders – Glen Murray

Now, here’s a rumour which, while improbable, isn’t completely impossible. Calgary Grit is reporting that good ‘ole Glen Murray is considering a run at the Liberal leadership... (cont'd @ Canadian Honky-Tonk Bar Association)

Hamas: The Downside of Democracy

The Republic, Plato argues that democracy is the second worst form of government. It is only exceeded by tyranny. He goes on to demonstrate how a democracy can easily slip into a tyranny. Churchill was of a slightly different opinion, that democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time... (cont'd @ RootleWeb)

From The Man Who Invented The Internet

Al Gore Strikes!

'"The election in Canada was partly about the tar sands projects in Alberta," Gore said Wednesday while attending the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

'"And the financial interests behind the tar sands project poured a lot of money and support behind an ultra-conservative leader in order to win the election . . . and to protect their interests."(link)(via)

Don't tread on our snow!

Stephen Harper took a solid shot at the US Ambassador recently when the there was some attempt to tell Canada what it should and should not be doing in Arctic waters.

The Day Ontario Stood Still...

Welcome back everyone, or should I ask to be welcomed back? I'm not sure, but THB is back in business today. Rules of Love start up again tomorrow, but today is the day to reflect on the election and Canada's new Prime Minister-elect, Stephen J. Harper!... (cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

Paul Martin - Heaven or Hell?

While vacationing on a ranch, Paul Martin is thrown from his horse, lands on a rattlesnake, is bitten, and dies because the emergency room at the nearest hospital is too understaffed to treat him in time. So his soul arrives in Heaven and he is met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.... (cont'd @ SpiderMan's Web)

Stolen Election: Recount Requested

Stolen Election: Recount Requested
Stories like this one are disturbing, to say the least.

Motorist Dies While Fleeing Police

Who is at Fault?
Even the title of this article disturbs me. This makes is sound as though the police were at fault for making the driver speed and get into an unfortunate accident. This is happening all the time and is partly due to the liberal media that is at hand. This is placing the fault on the police that are doing their job as they are suppose to...

We can now rest

Well the election is over. I am happy the Conservatives won and now I must get on with my life. Amazing that no matter how much I claim to not be interested in politics it has such a draw on me that I will never say that again. In fact, I am a political junkie. A part of me follows politics because of the excitement and since the last election when the Liberals won the minority government excitement was brought back into the business of running our country. It is my version of a soap opera … except that it is real and it can affect millions of people.
Some minor points that I want to get off my chest so I can take this blog to its next phase: (cont'd @ Creative Conviction)

The Final Countdown...

Got this from a foreign friend today; these ads are smoking! The one on rights looks like a Dipper was behind these things, which is consistent with my thoughts that they have had some of the best ads of this campaign (it does not fit with Jack!'s "positive alternative" posturing though!)

Southwest strength no fluke

While I was looking for another post last night, I came across this little gem - Vote Splitting on the Left

Interesting to note that all the ridings I listed are currently considered 'in play' in the election and very possible pickups for the CPC. (cont'd @ Blue Blogging Soapbox)

Did Volpe Lose His License ?

Citizenship and Immigration Minister Joe Volpe rented limos to ferry him on long trips from Toronto last year, with one ride to Buffalo and back costing more than $1,000, Sun Media has learned. (cont'd @ Canadian Blue Lemons)

It's just a little corrupt, it's still good, it's still good...

I wanted to take a few moments and address something that came up a couple of time in the all candidates debate this afternoon.

The Conservatives are taking a lot of heat over bringing back the same-sex marriage debate and possibly reconsidering missile defense.

All candidates debate today at UW...

Conservative: Ajmer Mandur
Liberal: Andrew Telegdi
NDP: Edwin Laryea
Green Party: Pauline Richards

Wise words from Winnipeg

Partisan leanings aside (mine), Winnipeg Sun Columnist Gord MacFarlane pens an optimistic article. Contrary to what most Chicken Littles would have you believe, regardless of the result on the 23rd, most Canadians will wake up to find the end of the world hasn't arrived and quite possibly, Canada will be ready to embark on a new era of governence.

Home Riding(s) Predictions

This may be a long post, I am going to predict who will win in every riding I have lived in... (cont'd @ Canadian Honky-Tonk Bar Association)

It couldn't have come at a better time...

Reading an article linked from Blue Blogging Soapbox I keep thinking "wow, this couldn't have come at a better time".

The article is some encouraging words from a Winnipeg journalist regarding life after January 23rd.

Without going into detail (available in the original article or at Blue Blogging Soapbox) the writer is confirming that the world isn't going to end on January 23rd, regardless of the election outcome. (cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)

Liberal Entitlement Example #13897 - they'll never learn

I think I'm supposed to be either surprised or shocked, but I'm fast losing the capacity for either. The spin will be "it's just a coincidence", Liberal ridings did not receive any special treatment. Last election it was Liberal ridings that seemed to have the same sort of luck with Visitor Visas. With the kind of luck they have, more Liberals should be buying 6/49 tickets.

Fundamental Liberal Logic

"The Prime Minister cannot cherry pick among rights that he happens to like or ones that he doesn't happen to like."

Paul Martin - December 2005.

"If the notwithstanding clause does not exist then the decision of the Supreme Court and its interpretation of the Charter is the one that will stand," he [Paul Martin] said. "I don't believe that a prime minister can cherry-pick rights."

An analysis of recent ads...

went through all of the recent Liberal TV ads tonigh (released January 10th) and all of the most recent Conservative TV ads as well. I tried to go through the NDP ones, but they were all in QuickTime and frankly I hate QuickTime.

I wanted to take a closer look at how quotations are being used in the campaigns of each party. The Liberal ads can be found here and the Conservative ads here. (cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)

The "New" Liberal Ads

Okay, so I've seen some of the suckers (I can't bring myself to watch them all because they all look and act the same). Here's my take: (cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

Liberal education plan even worse then it first appeared

I was a critic of the Liberal’s “50/50” plan when it first came out. That was before I actually ran the numbers. (cont'd @ Canadian Honky-Tonk Bar Association)

The Supreme Leader's Not-with-standing Gambit

At some point today I wanted to write a post about another memorable moment in last night's debate: The Supreme Leader's pledge to remove the not-with-standing clause from the Charter of Rights and Freedoms... (cont'd @ Back Off Government!)

A Debate Like No Other

I had to reflect a bit before writing about tonight's debate. On the surface, nothing really happened; take a closer look at the dynamics though and this campaign (which was already interesting) just became the most explosive one since 1984! Here is my analysis on each leader: (cont'd @ The Hunter's Blog)

"a culture of entitlement"

I flipped on the television briefly this afternoon and I admittedly didn't even catch the name of the show that was on...

An orange is not an apple.

It seems that I can't have a political discussion with almost anyone back home without them getting all flustered about Stephen Harper.

The first issue that I find myself continually assaulted with is that of the traditional definition of marriage...(cont'd @ Moxy Thoughts)
