The Closing of the Canadian Mind

The NY Times details clearly and directly why the Harper government has been a curse on Canada. Get him gone. The early polls show Mr. Harper trailing, but he’s beaten bad polls before. He has been prime minister for nearly a decade for a reason: He promised a steady and quiet life, undisturbed by painful […]

What if David Cameron is an evil genius?

Frankie Boyle nails David Cameron. Britons (or English people, anyway) take note: This is what you voted for. ‘They abolished the Human Rights Act” sounds like the first sentence of an Aldous Huxley novel. The Conservatives actually campaigned on a manifesto pledge to get rid of human rights and people voted for it. As electoral choices go, […]

Washing their hands of sanity

Not sure what kind of play the Republicans are making here – this “let them decide” now seems to be the party line. If it means more braindead sheep removed from the voting pool, I’m all for it. Meanwhile, I’m going to keep washing my hands and avoid shaking hands with this Senatorial idiot. A […]

New-Zealand English teacher-turned-terrorist Mark Taylor, who shot into the public eye last year after publicly burning his Kiwi passport and then asking for a new one has blundered […]

Margaret Thatcher allowed cynicism and greed to come out from under its ugly stone and become part […]

The Dreaded Lubyanka

I’d only heard of this notorious building because of Archer‘s jokes, but it turns out the Russians have jokes about it, too: Following the Bolshevik Revolution, the structure was seized by the government for the headquarters of the secret police, then called the Cheka. In Soviet Russian jokes, it was referred to as the tallest […]

Scrooge Parade

I’m over a month late to this party (note: Only 11 shopping months left ’til Christmas!) but it makes me laugh anew. Police in Kingston, Ont., have charged a man who was allegedly telling children Santa Claus did not exist during the city’s annual Santa Claus parade. Police say a 24-year-old man was arrested Sunday […]

McAfee’s location was exposed after he agreed to let two reporters from Vice Magazine tag along with him. Proud to finally be in the thick of a story rife with vices — drugs, murder, prostitutes, guns, vicious dogs, a fugitive millionaire and his inappropriately young girlfriend — they proudly posted an iPhone photo to their […]
