A talk that speaks for itself

I don't often wade into the pipeline debate because (horrors!) I proudly work in the Canadian oil and gas industry but this presentation is very much bringing to the attention of as many people as possible.Recommend this Post

Prescient Pontypool

Pontypool changes foresaw everything.

I watched this indie Canadian movie a long time ago.  So long ago that I rented a DVD of it.  It was an enjoyable and well done take on the zombie genre.

I saw it advertized on the CBC app as a tie-in to Hallowe'en and thought I would watch it again.  It stood up well as a piece of entertainment.  But the message of English being infected by specific words and idioms which cause those affected to turn into zombies mindlessly attacking others is very much on the mark in 2018.Recommend this Post

Stop saying that P. M. Scheer would be like President Trump

Any rational thought process would illustrate that P. M. Scheer would be like President Pence.Recommend this Post

Little Stephen Harper on the Big Stage

I couldn't change the channel quickly enough so I heard a segment on Stephen Harper on As It Happens.  I suppose there are those that would laud Mr Harper being interviewed about his recent book.  There are others who would point out he was on Fox.

What galled the most, was his claim that Marxism only survived in Academia.  His statement would have carried a lot more weight if he was able to cite some sort of factual backup.  Isn't he supposed to be some sort of intellectual policy wonk?  Without backup, his claim of Universities being a refuge for Marxist elite-ists carries as much weight as the statements of a (hopefully) soon to be ex-US President.

We suffered under his governance void of intellectual rigour.  He hasn't learned anything in 3 years, has he?Recommend this Post

Kavanaugh's tirade to the US Senate Judiciary Committee - Because that is what bullies do

Wouldn't it have been better to try and mend fences?  Perhaps show some empathy? You know.  Show some judicial temperament?  Yes, of course that is what a person would do in normal times.

Instead we get the angry Wahvanaugh tantrum.  In which he exposes the very thinly covered partisan, mean and nasty person nominated by Trump.  Because that is what bullies do.

But that was part of the point.  The angry "conservatives" have had enough.  McConnells Flying Monkeys (the MFMs) are rubbing everyone's nose in the fact that they will make a mockery of the process and ram through their guy.  They aren't retreating from him because he is obviously a lying abusive blackout drunk unsuited for the USSC.  They are sticking with him because he is all of that and an extremely hate-filled partisan hack.  They are going to push this jerk onto the highest court in the once great republic.  Because that is what bullies do.

And he has shown the world exactly how he will adjudicate.  He will be on a crusade to destroy the advances made by the US since the 1950's.  He will help in the effort to bring back Jim Crow, rescind a womean's right to choose and a lot more.  He put all of that on full display.  And said: "Try and stop me.".  Because that is what bullies do.
