  1. Are father's and mother's days sexist? Maybe we should just have parent days.

    1. Bryan

      Bryan

      Yes, they are sexist. And that's a good thing.

  2. If we were to burn all of the earth's current reserves of oil, coal and natural gas, the warming due to CO2 would increase the temperature of the planet by 8.3 degrees.

  3. Adding to the list of how Trudeau is failing progressive votes, his party voted against studying the effects of mincome in today's economy.

      Par for the course for the LPC. They are far more focussed on saying what they think people want to hear in a campaign, than they are actually following through on the policy.

      Mincome is a lot like national daycare in that politically, you need to be able to convince a certain segment of the population that it's still to come, but to keep support from another equally important segment it's also very important not to actually ever do it.

  4. Nazism was like cancer. It grew and spread until if formed a massive tumor and had to be cut out. Wahhabism is like cancer. It is growing and spreading and getting out of control. Let's hope that it can be eliminated before it gets so big that it will either have to be cut out or destroy us all.

      It's not just wahabis. Even the "moderate" sunnis have some very dangerous beliefs.

  5. Where was Rona Ambrose the last 10 years? She speaks as if her government didn't run massive deficits....

    1. Bryan

      Bryan

      The opposition in a minority govt imposed the huge deficits. It was the Conservatives who got rid of it in record time once they had the majority to be able to do so.

  6. If we should be taxing things we don't want, can we tax single mothers and dropping out of school?

      Your responses indicate you missed it by a pretty wide margin.

  7. Canada fails to meet Kyoto and Copenhagen targets, but promises more climate change lies.

    1. Bryan

      Bryan

      The new targets make me laugh. It's easy to promise something when you know you won't even be alive by the time they have to be implemented. Even in the short term, It's pretty obvious these are political "gotcha" targets, not real environmental targets. They exist for one reason only, so that those who signed them can point at whomever is in power after them and criticize them for failing to live up to the impossible standards that were left for them.

      I like the point you're making here Shady. It's not surprising in the least that the usual suspects missed that point completely.

  9. Hmm, Evan Solomon tossed by CBC for breaching CBC's code of ethics....getting commissions for high end art....In one case pocketing 300K for one sale

    1. Bryan

      Bryan

      Hopefully the CBC will use this as an opportunity to get someone less biased in that chair. Solomon was a disgrace to the legacy that Don Newman built for that program.

  10. Unsurprisingly, the Harper Government votes "no" as the UN Native Rights Declaration passes.

      Cyber, were you just checking your news feed from 2007?

  11. If you own a penis and you see 50 Shades of Grey, you immediately and permanently forfeit your man card. Thank you that is all.

    1. Bryan

      Bryan

      The hype is odd on a few levels. First, because the movie is NOT all that controversial. The content is nothing special or over the top. The relationship between the main characters is not the predatory abusive thing you keep hearing from activists and the like. It's kinky, sure, but very much reciprocal. The only "shame" on screen is that Dakota Johnson is fully buck naked a lot of the time. That, unfortunately is the film's only redeeming quality because the second reason th...

      I was one of 4 guys in a theatre otherwise packed with women last night. Trust me, my "man card" is fully intact. I got boatloads of chick cred for going, my wife bragged to all of her freinds about how I was "the best" , and I was rewarded very nicely for it as well.

      The movie? utter garbage.
