Best Moments of the State of the Union

Wednesday, February 1st, 2006

I have to say, this state of the union had bush in full swing. Many of the things he said, I agree with. Stuff like, immigration is cruicial to a good economy. Isolationism is bad.
However, its the way he spun things, that I disagreed with. Things like, referring to our “freedom spreading” as “winning”. I […]

I wish they would turn around…

He should probably have to see the front. I mean, the media knows this quote. I don’t think the bushies are familiar with it.

Local MP Debate

Friday, January 13th, 2006

In case the rest of the world has missed it, here in Canada we’re in the middle of a huge election, one which has shaken up the whole country.
The Liberal Party (really, a centre-line party in Canada) have been in power for nearly two decades. However, after a scandle (concerning a paltry 300MM) the Liberal […]

FSM Spotting

Sunday, December 18th, 2005

I was reading about the Protocol’s of the Elders of Zion and found some interesting facts.
First off, if you think its real, then you need to leave this website right now.
Secondly, prior to 2004, Walmart sold copies of the book!
Thirdly, apparently the flying spaghetti monster is implicated in the plot. And I’d just like to […]

I saw Jack Layton

Thursday, November 3rd, 2005

So, tonight me and a few people went to this trendy (and quite delicious) sushi bar in downtown west toronto. During the first part of the meal, my friend Erin says, “Hey, isn’t that that politician guy?” My ears perked up and I looked around. Then I saw him…. the love of my life….. Jack […]

Canadian Perspectives: Domestic TV Programming Requirements

Monday, September 19th, 2005

Canada, like many proud countries, has laws that prevent the television airwaves from being dominated by American television shows. I believe its something like 30% of all programming must be Canadian or Canadian-themed. So, for instance, the “Comedy” network here in Canada. At night, it plays Crank Yankers, The Daily Show, and other American shows […]

Why I Lean Left.

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

This is horribly unedited, but I’d rather post it than keep it waiting around for a good read-through
Throughout history, there has been liberal and conservative in one form or another. I’m going to simplify this discussion by bypassing all current trends in each of the two camps, by getting to the essence of each of […]

Satire People!

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

Ok, after my last rant about bad writing. And yes, I’m the first to admit I’m not a great writer. Making fun of yourself is always entertaining. More to the point, I don’t write sentimental things. Just sentances with bad spelling and *thinking* critically. Which, seems to be all you need to be ‘revolutionary’ […]

Subway Jihadists: An Essay

Wednesday, July 27th, 2005

I think that with all this subway business in London and the terrorist threat here in New York, its odd to me that very few people have taken a moment to stop and think about the effectiveness of the procautions in NYC and about *why* the terrorists have mass-transit suicide bombings as their M.O. First […]

Carl Miller of PA is an Ass.

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

Recently, I got in an arguement where I said that blogs can be used for good. However, I’m about to prove that they can be used for bad also.
Carl Miller of Phily is an asshole.
I’d like to re-publish a few of his recent poems.
The Liberal
Such a curious breed
Its illness comes from tainted feed
Libs
Tell
Fibs
I want you […]
