Fusing and Musing: Douche of the week – Rush Limbaugh

Well, well, it certainly has taken a while to get back to writing here on oddbloke.ca. As many of you know, the operator of this site, after having me vetted by the public, was ill for a while. But seriously – I was a bit annoyed by the “What to do with Walt Kego” piece put ...

Fusing and Musing: All ye who seek money and power – Is this all you have?

As many of you know I suffer from some unknown illness that severely incapacitates me from time to time. This week was no exception and I lay for hour after hour suffering and wondering, “How long can something like this go on until it manifests in the way I dread and the hand of death ...

Fusing and Musing: Vetted by Facebook?

In an age where the “online spying” and “indefinite detention” become tools by the government to suppress the population and create fear of dissent, I have become completely convinced that I am being vetted by Facebook. I have recently returned from the beautiful Caribbean coast of Honduras. I visited Copan Ruinas, near the Guatemalan border, ...

Why you should vote for Grant Gordon, and by extension the Liberal Party of Canada

Yesterday, the picture below started making its rounds on the internet, and as was intended (I’m sure), it generated quite a lot of debate and discussion.  I posted it to my Facebook timeline, and ended up in the middle of a debate from both Conservatives and New Democrats.

I Endorse Kyle Harrietha for National Membership Secretary

I’ve known Kyle Harrietha since shortly after I joined the party, when he was President in Fort McMurray and I was the new President in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission. As the new President of an Kyle Harrietha effectively dead riding association, I took a lot of inspiration from the work Kyle was doing in Northern Alberta. ...

Birth Pangs: Mother Who Dressed Toddler As Prostitute Wants To Donate Dress Profits To Anti-Abortion Organization

Who would dress their child as a prostitute? A “pro-lifer” of course. Wendy Dickey, the mother of Paisley, who wore the now-famous “Pretty Woman” prostitute costume during the Queen of Hearts pageant, tells E! News exclusively that the outfit has caused such a stir that she wants to sell the getup and donate the proceeds ...

Birth Pangs: Nadine Dorries Abortion Amendment Defeated

Chalk one up for rationality and common sense. MPs voted by 368 votes to 118 – a majority of 250 – to reject the amendment by the Tory backbencher Nadine Dorries after she lost the support of her co-sponsor, the former Labour minister Frank Field. The Dorries amendment would have stripped non-statutory abortion providers such ...

Birth Pangs: International Women’s Day 2011

It would be nice if this could be a day of celebration, however it feels more appropriate for it to be a day of remembrance for all the women who have fallen or who have been unnecessarily burdened under oppressive regimes. In the U.S. women are losing their rights to reproductive choice with restrictions on ...

Birth Pangs: LifeSite on the Arizona Shooting – Taking CYA to a New and Disgusting Level

I generally prefer to report rather than takes digs at, after all as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Be careful when you fight the monsters, lest you become one.” However, this article over at **LifeSiteNews is absolutely abhorrent. Most of it is spent trying to prove that the shooter was promoting a god-less left-wing agenda – oh ...
