It really is a shame what happened last night in Vancouver–I truly believe it was the work of a small minority, taking advantage of the situation. I personally believe we would have seen rioting and looting even if Vancouver won. Here’s why: I have always been a fan of the “street party”. From my early high school […]Continue reading
An enigmatic image from last night’s post-hockey riots apparently has CBC in a twit-storm: Actually, I like this image a lot better than the ones of rioters jumping on cop-cars. It’s a much truer reflection of what Vancouverites (and Canadians in general) are normally like. And no, rioting is NOT due to anarchy OR “just […]Continue reading
via mostly water…Why I am joining the new flotilla to Gaza By Kevin Neish I’m running on empty but here are my thoughts. I’ve attached an earlier report I made about what happened to me, at the bottom, as it is quite long… The antidote for despai…Continue reading
Conservatives love to talk ‘free speech’ and get upset when they meet the legal wall after they libel or defame. But if you happen to be a non-Con, the rules change. Bill Ayers has found this out in his attempts to travel to Harper’s Canada, where is …Continue reading
What a disgusting generation. It would be one thing if they could get out of bed and hit the barricades to defend their fellows but sadly no. What brings this generation of Canadians to the streets of fire is not … Continue reading →Continue reading
OTTAWA – Is the New Democratic Party looking more like the Liberal Party in drag these days?
PS. Not a diss. This is actually my favorite pic of Mr. Layton. You notice, however, that he is wearing the red jersey.Continue reading
Well, not really appealing. In fact he’s not at all attractive.
See what we did there? Funny? Eh? EH?
Bah! We long for the Golden Age of Comedy when a good knock-knock joke would delight theatres and all the great USO Shows Bob Hope was a part o…Continue reading
Well well well.
What have we here?
The unions fought tooth and nail to protect the rich pensioners and left the youth out to dry.
Have unions scealed their fate?
Once the fat pensions run dry and …Continue reading

I’ve had all day to digest the events in Vancouver last night,my first knee jerk reaction was how dare those idiots riot over a hockey game when they should have been peacefully demonstrating for societal change. My stance has softened somewhat as I no…Continue reading
I was saddened and disappointed to watch Vancouver burn last night. Disappointed because the Canucks played so poorly and lost a game that they didn’t deserve to win, saddened to watch how the people in the streets ‘reacted’ to the game and went on a rampage, and I’m disappointed and saddened to watch the online–and […]Continue reading
Good afternoon Vancouver, how’s your head? The hand-wringing and spinning has commenced in full force now in the wake of the riot which gripped the downtown core after the Canucks Game 7 loss. The narrative which emerged, both in the media and thanks to public statements by the Vancouver Police, is that—are you ready for […]Continue reading
I arrived a few days early to headquarters in Marmet, WV with an overly large pack that threatened to topple me over with one slightly unbalanced step. A sleeping bag, m…Continue reading
Ok, I realize that stew is not something we would generally think of as light and fluffy – but I meant that this is not a serious political or philosophical analysis piece or essay: it is for joy and for good health. Bon appetite! I don’t u…Continue reading
A battered guy on the ground wearing a Bruins jersey. A security guard getting the shit beat out of him, simply trying to stop looters from destroying his store. This colossal asshole above with the bloodied manikin leg, god only knows how it got that …Continue reading

Wow things got ugly here last night, and I don’t mean downtown. Critical thinking gave way to mass condemnation online as an arms race of criticism took over any actual analysis of the situation. First, to get it out of the way, yes, the riots were bad. A lot of property was destroyed, people were […]Continue reading
