Saturday Night Special

In honour of Shark Week (which is like Christmas but with sharks), please take the time to review these shark facts.

Sooner or later, these twenty-somethings with a completely undeserved sense of entitlement will wake up and realise they are dispensable and spiralling uncontrollably to ruin. Everyone has been at a stage in their lives when they thought they had it all figured out. When they realised they didn't, that was the turning point.


A widely published American study recently indicated that most students, tested at different times in their lives, do not improve their capacity to think by attending university. In other words, post-secondary education fails to do its main job, more often than not.

The entire view and practice of education must be re-hauled. Apathy and idleness can no longer be a default position. Parents should read to their kids, not spend thousands of dollars hoping that Junior will succeed in the NHL where Senior has failed. Teachers should have contracts, not heavily-politicised unions that keep them fat and lazy, and made to work for their benefits. Students should not move to the next level if they fail to perform. It is easier for a student to bounce back at an early age than realise after he has graduated that he really is a moron and everyone around him has been giving him A's just for sport or paycheques. Humanities must be purged of the incredibly regressive leftism that would paint Plato as a "dead white male dinosaur" and not as an incredible thinker.

But that's just what I think.

And you thought the humanities couldn't bring the funny.

Um, because it IS vulgar.

Remember- they are the victims here:

A week after a massacre in Norway fuelled by anti-Islamic sentiment claimed the lives of 77 people, Muslims preparing for Ramadan across Canada are being urged to install surveillance cameras and bars on mosque windows, and to talk to police and school principals about emergency plans should an incident arise.

The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Ottawa, is calling for these and other measures as part of its “Muslim Community Safety Kit” sent to Muslim associations across the country this week.

“Our experience has been that in the aftermath of high profile incidents, whether national or international, there is on occasion an uptick in anti-Muslim rhetoric and reports of Islamophobic hate crimes,” said Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the council. “But we don’t expect a widespread backlash against the Muslim community. It is not a community living in fear. Our shared grief for the victims in Norway overwhelms any fear of a backlash.”

There have been reports of mosques being vandalized and other incidents in Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, Waterloo, Ont. — some following the 9/11 attacks, others after the uproar over a cartoon depicting Muhammad in a Danish newspaper in 2005, and more recently around the well-publicized burning of a Qur’an in Florida, Gardee said.

According to a Statistics Canada report released in June, the number of hate crimes increased by 42 per cent from 2008 to 2009, the last year for which statistics are available.

While the number of hate crimes against all racial groups rose in 2009, proportionately the largest increase involved hate crimes against Arabs or West Asians, more than doubling from 37 incidents in 2008 to 75 in 2009. Religiously motivated hate crimes against Muslims went up 38 per cent.

What utterly laughable hogwash.  It's a political goldmine, however.

The shootings in Norway did not target Muslims or mosques but that shouldn't get in the way of a good pout.

A survey on reported hate crimes indicated that Jewish people were more likely the victims of hate crimes. Many articles, polls and surveys will omit the religion and list "South Asian" as a category which obscures pertinent information such as nationality and religious affiliation. Indeed, many articles will simply not indicate nationality or religious affiliation as a matter of course, quite unlike repeatedly mentioning descriptions such as "blond" or "Christian conservative". Mohamed Elmasry of the Canadian Islamic Congress believed that many hate crimes are wrongly classified:

Mohamed Elmasry, national president of the congress, said hate crimes against Muslims are often misfiled by police because it’s difficult to question someone’s religion, thus skewing the numbers.

“A Somali family who reports a hate crime, they might put it under black when it’s supposed to be under Muslim,” said Elmasry. “That Somali family should be under Muslim and not under black, because the motivation is really because the woman is wearing a hijab.

“It is easier for the hate crime unit to put the report under black because it’s a visible minority.”

Mr. Elmasry can't have it both ways. Either "South Asian" or "Black" always indicates "Muslim" meaning that a terror suspect identified as South Asian or Black is an adherent to Islam or those terms are still subject to further clarification.

At any rate, a coddling white liberal population will foster a victim ideology for a population that demands it. Unbelievable.

Related: you know your brand has "jumped the shark" (see what I did there?) when you claim the deity of a religion (two religions, actually) you hate is actually one of you:

Welcome to the upside down world of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC).  Great Britain's radical Muslim group now claims that Jesus Christ was a Muslim.  According to their website:

The truth is when Jesus was sent to his people he came with the same message of all previous Messengers such as Moses, Abraham and Noah - that God is one and submission to Him is exclusive.  Jesus throughout his life and mission believed in one God and preserved this concept throughout his life.  He did this by ensuring that all actions and deeds were based upon the laws of God.  Furthermore those who contradicted these laws were rejected and opposed.

Jesus led a life of submission to His Lord which is the essence of Islam.  Islam means the true submission to the will of God alone and anybody that adheres to this mission is called a Muslim.  Islam is the divine message revealed by God which all Messengers and Prophets followed and called to; including Jesus.  This message was concluded by the final Messenger, Muhammad (peace be upon him) who rectified any misconception and showed mankind the complete divine way of life.

Scoring off of Jesus. Just sad.

People like Morrissey make Celebrity Apartheid Week possible:

Morrissey has issued a statement clarifying his recent on-stage comments about the massacre in Norway...

"The comment I made on stage at Warsaw could be further explained this way - Millions of beings are routinely murdered every single day in order to fund profits for McDonalds and KFCruelty, but because these murders are protected by laws, we are asked to feel indifferent about the killings, and to not even dare question them.

"If you quite rightly feel horrified at the Norway killings, then it surely naturally follows that you feel horror at the murder of ANY innocent being. You cannot ignore animal suffering simply because animals 'are not us'."

Yes, why don't you tell us what you really think, Morrissey?

Yes, I can ignore animals, Morrissey, because they are not me. I can reason, they can't. How many seals will type with their flappers a treatise on why something tastes so good with mustard? The animal kingdom is far more primal and cruel than any human being could be. If one animal eats another for meat, why can't I? I won't eviscerate the poor creature and let it bleed out or let it scamper away permanently mutilated. I will prepare and eat it and feed it to my family. It is delicious. It is nature and, for some people, profit. Hunting down humans, on the other hand, is an act of barbarity and should be recognised as such. It's too bad you can't see that.

In other news:

CJ E&M Pictures and Grapevine Entertainment have attached Rob Cohen to direct the $100 million Korean War epic, "1950." Film is said to be the largest-budgeted project ever undertaken by the Korean film industry.

I'm sure the Koreans could (and have) make films just as grand but I'll see.

And now, "Jaws" in thirty seconds.

Hate crimes against Christians and Jews is up sharply but as usual, the fem/gays use numbers instead of details to say they need special treatment and government funds.
When is the government going to stop paying off these opportunists?

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.

The government will get tired when WE do.
