Leave the desk for a few days and see what piles up.
Sam Donaldson is a uni-browed fossilised cretin:
ABC's former White House correspondent Sam Donaldson told the Huffington Post Saturday, "Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices [sic] and political view but for who he is, an African American!"
Yes, I'm sure Obama's questionable connections, lack of experience, willingness to allow infanticide, appeasement of Iran, alienation of both Canada and Israel and complete incompetence as a leader have absolutely nothing to do with anything. Right....

Ezra Levant was accused of excesses... or something... I was just stunned by the hypocrisy of his unaccountable detractors.

The British Columbia Supreme Court opens the floodgates to euthanasia:
A British Columbia Supreme Court judge has declared Canada's laws against physician-assisted suicide unconstitutional because they discriminate against the physically disabled.
In a 395-page ruling released Friday, Justice Lynn Smith addressed the situation faced by Gloria Taylor, a B.C. woman who was one of five plaintiffs in the case seeking the legal right to doctor-assisted suicide.
I know people are thinking this has to do with personal autonomy but think that this hard case- which will become law- doesn't change the fact that we will die but who will kill us.
And who is someone to kill me?

From TDSB text:
Ernesto “Che” Guevara was a leader in Latin America who was born in Argentina. He was a doctor.
When he was young, he travelled through South America on his motor bike and wrote in his journal. While travelling, he was saddened by how poor people were wherever he visited.
No mention of his sadism. Hhhmmm.....

The way I understand it, you can't pick and choose which laws you would like to obey. Ms. Gibbons made a conscious decision to not obey the law. There are consequences. Period. She is trying to portray herself as a martyr, which she is not.
BTW this has nothing to do with Karla Homolka. Karla committed her crimes, did her time. She did not go back out repeatedly and break the law (that we know about.)
Why do people need to know this? Having Ezra's name attached to it takes away any credibility.
For leftism/liberalism, lack of moral vision isn't a bug, it's a feature.
The UN promoted Zimbabwe as a tourism ambassador. Zimbabweans use their own worthless currency as toilet paper. Discuss.
It has been bandied about that extremely graphic and extensively pushed sex education programs are in fact grooming aids for the more perverse of the species. That theory may be right:
Parents in a small Washington State community are infuriated after their 11-year-old children were given graphic descriptions of oral and anal sex during a sex education class led by an elementary school principal.
Fifth-graders at Onalaska Elementary School were supposed to get a lesson about HIV-AIDS, but the class discussion turned graphic when a child asked about other forms of sexual activity. The principal, who happened to be teaching the class, then told the children about oral and anal sex.
“I’m one pissed off cowboy,” parent James Gilliand told Fox News Radio. “I didn’t appreciate them teaching my daughter – who is innocent of that – at all.”
Gilliland and his wife, Kadra, were among the moms and dads in Onalaska, about 73 miles south of Tacoma, demanding answers from their local school system – and so far – they are still waiting.
“I was just shocked because I trusted my little country school,” Kadra Gilliland told Fox News Radio. “I didn’t think they were going to talk about such things. I trusted by school – that’s the bottom line and they crossed the line.”
School officials did not return calls seeking comment.
However, Superintendent Scott Fenter defended the principal’s action to local media and said that the lesson did not go too far.
“I think the principal handled it appropriately at the time; she only gave factual information, no demonstrations,”...
Toronto is not our cosmopolitan or moral superior:
Has everyone forgotten that Toronto councillor and would-be mayor Adam Vaughan is simply channelling former mayor David Miller in his call for banning guns and bullets in the wake of the Eaton Centre shooting?
Four years ago, Miller -- whose political base is the same as Vaughan's -- called for a ban on guns following a similar outbreak of gun violence.
While Miller didn't include banning bullets, he wanted legal gun owners to store their guns (and, presumably, their ammunition) at a central depot.
Of course this never happened given its impracticality and the fact only the feds can ban guns, which not even Jean Chretien, creator of the long-gun registry, attempted.
Miller's "war" on guns, which, like Vaughan's, was political, not practical, eventually settled on irrelevant symbolism that had nothing to do with addressing violent urban street crime.
Miller's council banned the Sportsmen's Show from Exhibition Place because of its hunting rifle displays, (a decision the present council recently overturned, meaning the Sportsmen's Show will return there next year) and closed two gun clubs on city property, one at Union Station, the other in Scarborough.
Coun. Josh Colle, whose ward includes Lawrence Heights, where the vast majority of law-abiding black citizens are often victims of the small minority of black gangsters, has accurately described stunts like banning the Sportsmen's Show as a way white downtown politicians pretend they're doing something to fight gun violence.
Except it's even more cynical than that.
Vaughan, like Miller, isn't stupid. They know their proposals won't reduce urban gun and gang violence.
That would involve addressing the inability of our criminal justice system to apply and enforce the laws we already have against gun crime (we don't need new ones), and the horrendous breakdown of the nuclear family in the black community, which leads directly to the proliferation of black gangs.
Implementing these measures would require major spending by federal, provincial and municipal governments and focus a spotlight on the huge social problem of absentee fathers in the black community, which politicians today don't want to discuss, because their brains are so addled by political correctness, they think talking about problems honestly is racist.
What Vaughan's doing, as did Miller, is changing the channel from taking on gangsters to harassing legal gun owners, such as hunters.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty takes a step back from ruining everyone's summer:
There were signs of a resolution Sunday to a budget crisis in Ontario that threatens to trigger a summer election just eight months after the last campaign.
Premier Dalton McGuinty appeared to step back slightly from his threat to go to the polls over changes the opposition parties made to the budget, but again demanded the NDP live up to agreements to let the fiscal plan pass.
"The budget must remain intact," McGuinty wrote Sunday in a letter to NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.
"You need only ensure your caucus lives up to the agreements you have already made."
On Friday, McGuinty said he would call an election if portions of the budget that were removed at committee on Thursday by the NDP and Conservatives were not restored before Wednesday's final vote.
But in Sunday's letter, McGuinty said those sections would be brought back in the fall as a separate bill. He urged Horwath to honour her promise not to block passage of the budget legislation.
This time, said McGuinty, he wants the NDP to put it in writing.
"Specifically, I ask you to commit yourself and your party, in writing, to not alter the intent or block passage of any more schedules of the budget bill," he wrote."
"And, of course, I will also need your written assurance that you will not block passage of the budget bill in the legislature."
The budget faces two more days of opposition-dominated finance committee hearings Monday and Tuesday, before the legislature is recalled Wednesday for the final vote, a confidence motion that could defeat the minority government and trigger an election.
I think McGuinty is worried that voters won't be fooled again.
What a surprise: the emotionally and culturally retarded Taliban ban an anti-polio drive in Pakistan:
Pakistani militants in a Taliban and Al-Qaeda infested tribal region Saturday banned anti-polio vaccination teams, to protest US drone strikes saying the attacks were killing civilians."Anti-polio vaccination teams will not be allowed to administer polio drops among children in North Waziristan," local warlord Gul Bahadur said in a statement.
Bahadur, who is allied with Afghan Taliban fighting US-led troops across the border, said the ban will remain effective until the US stops drone attacks in the tribal region.
"On the one hand they are killing innocent women, children and old people in drone attacks and on the other they are spending millions on vaccination campaign," the statement distributed in the region's main town Miranshah said.
It said "the day and night US drone flights in Waziristan are causing mental illness in the local population which is more dangerous than polio."
Residents said people would respond to the call as Bahadur commands influence in the region.
First of all, this isn't the only time the Taliban has done this:
Militants in northern Pakistan have triggered a medical emergency by refusing to allow health officials to conduct a polio vaccination campaign.
Taliban militants in the former tourist destination of Swat Valley have obstructed officials from vaccinating over 300,000 children.
Militants have seized control of most of Swat and its capital, Mingora, and have extended their rule since striking a peace deal with the government and army earlier this year.
“There is a real emergency there. It is urgent to go in and vaccinate children,” said Dr Nima Abid, the Polio Team leader from the World Health Organisation in Pakistan.
Extremist clerics have used mosque loudspeakers and illegal radio stations to spread the idea that the vaccinations cause infertility and are part of a US-sponsored anti-Muslim plot.
Secondly, we can disregard that nonsense that drones are the real threat here. The real threats are the Taliban, Islamism and the useful idiots whose cries of Islamaphobia seldom go unheard.
