Monday Post

Quickly now...

Eve Adams, a Tory turned Liberal, lost the Liberal nomination for the Eglinton-Lawrence riding:

Recruiting Eve Adams looked like an inexplicable plan for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals in February, when the party held a marginal lead in the polls. By the time Sunday’s nomination meeting was over, it seemed like self-harm.

The Liberals of Eglinton-Lawrence rebuffed Ms. Adams’s bid to run for the party there, and at least symbolically, they rebuked Mr. Trudeau. This comes at a time when the Liberals, down in the polls, already seem to be sliding, and in a way that raises questions about Mr. Trudeau’s judgment.
How embarrassing for Justin Trudeau who must be baffled as to why people refused his hand-picked wonder. Anyone whose arrogance (and the Liberal Party is crammed to the rafters with such people) is the only thing that guides one's decision-making deserves such failure.

Obama's narcissism and sociopathy were on display in Ethiopia where he ignored (or just plain did not know) the political situation in that country and whined that democracy was just unfair to him:

I don't recall any other foreign leaders moaning about squabbles back home particularly when they could be a force for good. But, then again, most world leaders have some modicum of self-awareness and gravity about them.


At a press conference with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, Obama said that as a half-black American, he knew how painful it was to be treated differently and that Kenyans should stop causing pain for Kenyan homosexuals by treating them as if they were somehow, you know, different. Obama’s apparent goal is to see fit that everyone—no matter his, her, or its sexual orientation—experiences an equal level of pain.

In the most diplomatic manner imaginable, Kenyatta told Obama to go get fucked by a tree stump. He said his countrymen had more pressing concerns than gay rights, which he called a “non-issue.” He also implied that for Obama to meddle in Kenyan culture would be a fool’s errand: “It’s very difficult for us to impose on people that which they themselves do not accept.” ...

But it seems like the Africans, God bless ‘em, are tired of being lectured by white Western progressives who seek not to truly help them, but only to ensnare them in their own neurotic web of guilt-laden psychodrama. Your average African peasant living on a diet of five peanuts and two dried lentils a week simply doesn’t have time for such trifles. When you’re frantically searching for a sip of water so you don’t dry up into human jerky and then get eaten by fellow villagers, gay rights suddenly don’t seem so urgent.

What else can Russia be doing?

Russia could be preparing for a space war, following the launch of three mysterious satellites within 18 months, according to U.S. military analysts.

The three spacecraft - which the Kremlin say are communication satellites - could be prototype weapons, say U.S military observers.

As is standard, Russia notified the United Nations of the launch of three of its Rodnik communication satellites last year, but also added a fourth, unexpected craft to the list.

(Sidebar: it's not like the UN is ever going to stop Russia or anything.) 

Great Danes were once thought to ward away ghosts and evil spirits, which was why Scooby was the perfect companion for those meddling kids. While that may not have been on the cartoon creators' minds while they were developing characters, there was a lot of debate about Scooby’s breed during the show’s conception.
