Politics, Re-Spun: CBC House Cleaning Claims the Vapid Evan

Evan Solomon was always a pathetic pseudo-journalist. Ask an intriguing question, politician spins or lies or evades or trots out talking points, then Evan…what does he do? Move on. Nothing to see here. Waste of air. The world is better off with him off the air. January 10, 2014 What Does Post-Corporate Media Look Like? ...

@ToewsVic has brought this humiliation upon himself | #cdnpoli

… with his contemptible, sanctimonious hypocrisy. With regard to @Vikileaks30, the sordid details of Toews’ personal life were not “leaked.” They were set out in documents available to anyone with reasonably effective research skills. There was no breach of the law, so there’s nothing to investigate. I can’t really improve on the Dawg’s description, so ...

Conservatives create problems, not solutions

#cpc #gop #lpc #ndp #cdnpoli #politics In the news; the appeals court in California overturned a ban on same sex marriage. This ban was a citizen inspired law triggered by the then legalized gay marriage laws in California. The court found essentially that rights, once given, cannot be taken away. I’m not sure the political ...

Apology Of A Poseur

(The following was inspired by Deepak Chopra’s quackery-laden and hypocritically self-serving review of Richard Dawkins’ book, The Magic of Reality. Enjoy).I find myself saddened – yet also outraged – by Richard Dawkins’ latest written offering, an intellectually dishonest waste of paper titled The Magic of Reality. As you all know, I have written many substantive ...

The Sir Robert Bond Papers: Politics and Disasters

Even to people not desperately in need of help in the wake of last year’s Hurricane Igor, it was pretty obvious  – at the time – the provincial government was more geared to stoking and stroking political egos than anything else. By the second or third day, media reports made it obvious that people desperately ...

CalgaryLiberal: Leaked Attack Ad: Education

So two people have passed me CDs with attack ads. I now have, in my possession, three attack ads blasting the Progressive Conservatives and then the Wildrose-. They’re well written, short, and made to be shared. What I really like about this set of ads is that not only do they attack the Progressive Conservative ...

The Harper Government In A Nutshell

Just in case it has not yet sunk in how incompetent are Harper and his Harpies in matters of governance and responsible budgetary spending: 1- They spent some $2 millions last year in a narcissistic exercise of monitoring what the media says about them – you know, so as to better manipulate/control/spin their messages (re: ...

Intermittent Blogging Ahead

Well, it looks like 2011 will be as bad as 2010, with regards to my professional life (among other things). (Yes, my mother died last June, but I don’t expect anyone from my immediate family to pass away this year …) Back there, I explained how the CIHR screwed me around. This time, I got ...
