The Sleeping Truth Stirs

More and more in Canada, people pause in day-to-day natural conversations and realize, and then say out loud, "We have become such a socialist country."

The Government Plantation Forever?

Let's do a quick thought experiment.

The price of apples keeps going up. The government decides that every American must buy apples. But some can't afford them.

Government starts controlling how much apple farmers are paid. It mandates that every single American buys apples and subsidizes those under a certain income level so they can.

Will the price of apples go down, stay the same, or go up? Or, in economist's language, if you limit supply of a commodity and increase demand, will the price of that commodity go up or down?

Did you say up? You get an "A." But if you did say "up," you surely are not a Democrat.

Democrats have just committed multi-trillions of our money and, as a bonus, sold a big chunk of American freedom down the road ...

UN Opens Door For Moscow Military Action

The United Nations has given a Russian-led security group the authority to initiate military action in the Caucasus and Central Asia without first obtaining international approval.

A Fact

Homosexual sex, a generation ago, was widely considered both immoral and pathological. Today it’s enshrined as a constitutional right and the hallmark of a new “protected class”.

Government schools nationwide teach children as young as five that homosexuality is normal and that disagreeing with this viewpoint brands you as an intolerant “hater.”

The popular culture always portrays homosexuals sympathetically and often as heroes.

America’s bedrock institutions from its legal system to the news media, from its schools to its churches are rapidly reversing millennia of traditional values on homosexuality.

Pay Czar

The United States now have many Czars appointed by its new administration. One of these is pay czar Kenneth Feinberg.

One thing Mr. Fienberg says is that he looks to see if compensation practices are ‘inconsistent with the public interest’.

He then says, “Now what that will mean, I'm not sure.

A commenter saw alarm with that statement which lacks any firm guiding principle. The comment writer says, “Holy buckets, is this a horrible process! Anyone remember the rule of law?
Congress passes a sentiment
compensation should be consistent 'with the public interest' and we'll operationalize it later? In the judgment of a pay czar and whomever he elects to consult with?
We live in a precedent-based system of law. If you ever have a government bureaucrat nosing around to see if your pay is ‘inconsistent with the public interest’, remember this day.

Commentator Ann Coulter On Canada

"You guys used to be so cool. You were smokers. You had epic hockey fights. We had half our comedians from Canada. Now you’re all a bunch of girls named Francois."

No To Afghanistan

We said we would leave in 2011. And so we should.

Juarez, Mexico ... Murder City ... Snapshot

In 2007, there were 307 murders in Juarez. In 2008, there were 1,600-plus. Last year, there were 2,600. What's happened also at the same time is the collapse of the city -- 27 percent of the houses have been abandoned, there's 116,000 abandoned houses. At least 100,000 jobs in the factories have disappeared because of the recession. Half of the adolescents in Juarez neither have a job nor attend school. What you're looking at is a kind of disintegration of a society.

Inside The Mob

No one believed Ann Coulter's speech had been shut down until the police showed up. Their badges and bulletproof vests fit the occasion eerily well.

Mob Rule

A small mob prevented an assembly of listeners from gathering at the University of Ottawa Tuesday night. Showing a continually Canadian lack of tolerance for free expession, the noisy group prevented Ann Coulter from delivering her speech. It was very reminiscent of the mob at Concordia University who prevented Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking.

This latest reinforcement of Canadian activism, which states “What you don’t like, you can unilaterally shut down,” met with these words, many by Ann Coulter:

· Free speech in Canada leaves much to be desired.

· The University of Ottawa is really easy to get into, isn’t it? I never get any trouble at the Ivy League schools. It’s always the bush league schools.

· This has never, ever, ever happened before — even at the stupidest American university.

· Since I’ve arrived in Canada, I’ve been denounced on the floor of Parliament — which, by the way, is on my bucket list — my posters have been banned, I’ve been accused of committing a crime in a speech that I have not yet given, I was banned by the student council, so welcome to Canada!

· I would like to know when this sort of violence, this sort of protest, has been inflicted upon a Muslim — who appear to be, from what I’ve read of the human rights complaints, the only protected group in Canada. I think I’ll give my speech tomorrow night in a burka. That will protect me.

· An embarrassing day for the University of Ottawa and their student body, who could not debate Ann Coulter . . . who chose to silence her through threats and intimidation, just like their vice-president did.

· University of Ottawa vice-president and provost Francois Houle got his wish. A fish rots from the head down. He telegraphed to the community that the University of Ottawa is not a place for free debate.

· The spectacle showed just how eroded our Canadian values of free speech have become — especially on university campuses.

· It’s a shame. They claim we’re the intolerant ones, yet they’re the ones who refuse to allow a Conservative speaker to come to campus. That is the definition of intolerance.

Without Lies, What Could Obama Say?

Our first and greatest leader, George Washington, was not the most effective speaker of the Founders; that honor would be assigned to Patrick Henry, who turned out to be the greatest orator of the group. Interestingly, Thomas Jefferson, though the Founders’ most gifted writer, loathed public speaking and was in fact an even less effective speaker than was General Washington. Jefferson actually delivered very few speeches in his long public career, in any venue.

The General did not feel quite so negatively about speaking in public, and did in fact deliver numerous speeches, as military commander and as President, some of them quite brilliant.

There was a wonderful example of this when George Washington delivered a crucial speech to an audience that consisted of the rather fed-up soldiers of his army. Mutiny was in the air ...

Mounties Beaten At House Call

As they tried to arrest, investigators say the pair was swarmed, kicked and punched repeatedly.

The officers were rushed to Peace River Community Hospital. The male officer was treated for cuts, scrapes, swelling and a broken nose. The female officer had to be airlifted to an Edmonton hospital to treat broken bones in her face and other assault-related injuries.

Ann Coulter Strikes Freely Again

  • I thought it was just American public schools that produced ignorant people.
  • She suggested Muslims denied air travel take "flying carpets" instead.
  • Since I don't have a magic carpet, what other modes do you suggest? Take a camel.

Not All Canadians Have Equal Vote

The votes that Canadians cast in federal elections are more unequal than at any time in the country's history. The House of Commons is more unrepresentative than other federations in the developed world.

The effort to give smaller and rural parts of the country a voice in the House of Commons – they will remain overrepresented even after the proposed rebalancing – has muffled Canada's growing multicultural reality. Without legislative change, Parliament will increasingly speak for a Canada that no longer exists.

Al Sharpton: "The American Public Overwhelmingly Voted for Socialism When They Elected President Obama"

Some of the American people probably thought they were voting for hope and change when they voted for President Barack Obama on Nov. 4, 2008. But according to Rev. Al Sharpton, they were voting for socialism.

University Of Ottawa Clouds Free Speech Sky With Hate-Law Innuendo

An e-mail has controversial columnist and commentator Ann Coulter wondering if the University of Ottawa has something against conservatives.

Ms. Coulter is known for making picturesque comments such as: "Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now."

Flag

What if our flag wasn’t so communistic red?

What if it were not red at all? Is not a red leaf a dead leaf?

What if the leaf on the flag was green and the ocean sides blue?

Shaky Ground

In asking the question, “What binds Canadians together emotionally ?”, an elderly Midway woman answered thus: “The fact that we don’t have any problems.”

Canada on the surface can say that because, compared to other countries, problems are not very pressing.

Many Canadians feel the same way about the Gospel. “We don’t really need it. There is nothing really wrong with us. We are good people.”

That is very shaky ground to stand on, much like dry quicksand.

One day it might rain hard and long. Unsolid foundations will move and collapse. Self-righteous clothing will be of no value.

A Lot Of Americans Don't Like Obamacare

After a year of debate and legislative scheming, President Obama and congressional Democrats are making one last push for their ill-conceived health care plan.

Texas Basics

The Texas State Board of Education has succeeded in injecting conservative ideals into social studies which many liberals are very opposed to.

Teachers in Texas will be required to teach about Judeo-Christian influences on the nation's Founding Fathers. They will also describe the US as a "constitutional republic," rather than a "democratic one". Students will learn of the decline in value of the U.S. dollar, including the abandonment of the gold standard.

Board members argued about the classification of historic periods, BC and AD rather than the generic BCE and CE.

Students will learn about former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir and the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Along with learning the Bill of Rights, the board further specified a reference to the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The board gave its initial approval to the new standards with a 10-5 vote. A final vote will occur in May following a public comment period.

Decisions by the board, composed of lawyers, a dentist, a newspaper publisher and others can affect textbook content nationally. Texas schoolbooks have a strong nationwide influence.

Hitting Destructive Word Wall

Some declare that all truth is relative, that there is no such thing as an absolute.

That statement either includes itself or it doesn't.

If it includes itself, then that statement is not absolutely true.

If it excludes itself, then it is an absolute statement which it already said doesn't exist.

Cozy Myth

Politicians often use the mythological words, “Policeman and Fireman lay their lives on the line everyday for us.”

One might rightfully respond, “What inflammatory, self-serving, empty rubbish!”

This submitted report, “Workplace Fatalities in Canada”, states the following occupations are the most dangerous:


Workplace Fatalities in Canada

* Fishing and trapping

This industry has the highest incidence of workplace fatalities with 52 per 100,000 workers.

* Mining, quarrying and oil wells

With 46.9 fatalities per 100,000 workers, this industry is the second most dangerous.

* Logging and forestry

The logging and forestry industry, with 33.3 workplace fatalities per 100,000 workers, rounds out the top three.

* Construction

Construction, not surprisingly can be fatal too, with 20.2 fatalities per 100,000 workers.

* Transportation and storage

Coming in fifth as the most dangerous industry, transportation and storage has the distinction of 16.0 workplace fatalities per 100,000 workers.

Agriculture and manufacturing also ranked a higher risk before any government service did.

Things Heard

Skilfully playing on our deeply felt national values fairness, generosity, and tolerance marketers have persuaded society to embrace the new ‘enlightened and noble’ which all previous generations regarded as grossly self-destructive and evil.

Much of what people universally abhorred is now packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped, and sold to us as though it had great value.

WorldNetDaily

Which are you going to believe: Al Gore or your own eyes?

Forget what we in the United States and many around the world have experienced this winter, he writes in a New York Times op-ed. It may seem colder, but this is exactly what should be expected in a global-warming scenario, he claims. Just as a snowless winter in Washington a few years ago was also exactly what we should expect.

If it's hot, blame global warming. If it's cold, blame climate change.

Al Gore is not a serious person. He's a get-rich-quick artist who is peddling the biggest con game in the history of man.
