This could be interesting. It could also turn out to be a whitewash, knowing Mick Jagger’s aging propensity for people of wealth and taste. But I’ll keep my mind open. Jagger playing Rupert Murdoch is a stroke of genius in theory. I don’t doubt he could pull it off. I only hope that . . . → Read More: Mick Jagger as the new millennium Citizen Kane?Continue reading
In case you ever wondered whatever happened to WikiLeaks, it’s still making headlines in the news, from diplomatic cables that are in some cases years old. This is because there’s such a large volume of lies from our governments, that it’s going to take years to reconcile history with the truth. This morning there were […]Continue reading
Our institutions are broke. It’s time we followed a true doctrine of capitalism and let them all go under and deal with the mess instead of handing over more cash to the rich and elite that run our lives.Continue reading
Progressives, by which I mean those concerned with issues of a thriving democracy, the environment, and social and economic justice, are once again not being well served in the coming election.

Local right-wing gadfly and embarrassment to the city, Vancouver’s Paris Hilton, Leah Costello, is hosting war criminal Dick Cheney at her very elite, very right wing Bon Mot book club. It is appropriate however that a member of the cocktail wienie set is responsible for inviting such a ‘controversial’ criminal to our country and fair city. Protests are being organized and a healthy turnout is expected.

I attended the Green Party of Saskatchewan’s leadership meeting on Sunday, at the Glencairn Community Centre. There were probably close to 50 people in attendance, with others voting by email.

The Ontario Liberals are so desperate. They are running one of the most disingenuous smear filled campaigns I’ve ever seen from Liberals. First they’ve tried to dissuade progressive voters by suggesting that the ONDP and the PCPO are the same. Thus, don’t vote for the ONDP. I mean after allContinue reading
On Wednesday I wrote about how ONDP leader Andrea Horwath is trying to convince Ontarians that the kind of change they want is of the genital variety – forget substance, let’s just vote for the candidate who’ll wear stilettos into the legislature. Here are her comments from Martin Regg Cohn’s Star column today. And why […]Continue reading
A Top 10 list of my most read posts since the Ontario writ dropped. Oh, and about that poll today? Steve V gets it. 1. Top secret Hudak event 2. Oops Tim Hudak did it again 3. Hudak’s bus 4. The immigrant tax credit and why I’m a Liberal 5. For me, it’s substance over […]Continue reading

In 15 minutes, at 1:30, be at the Ad Hum Pit to hear concerns and solutions to the limited parking available at the UofR. Many people are displeased by the amount of parking sold at the main campus.

Sophia Aggelonitis threw it down in Tuesday’s Hamilton Mountain debate. Well done! Liberal cabinet minister and Hamilton Mountain MPP Sophia Aggelonitis went on the offensive during the Hamilton Mountain TV debate, asking pointed questions of her PC and NDP challengers and proudly proclaiming she was pro-choice. “You want to control what I do with my […]Continue reading

The most important thing to do in a recession is to make sure the extremely wealthy are well taken care of so they can get back to the business of creating jobs for the lesser humans.Continue reading
Isn’t it strange how oil companies can act as if they have the rights of people, but if they commit crimes or need police protection, they are suddenly special entities? If you built a pipe through your neighbours yard, and it leaked toxins thousands of times, do you think your neighbour wouldn’t sue you into […]Continue reading
Overheard on ride home, “Oooh Mr. MacKay. Coffee, tea or … me?”
Vacations are nice for a Conservative. They’re especially nice when you can commandeer a search-and-rescue copter to take you home at the end of it in style. Impresses the ladies.
Sometimes it’s good to be Defence . . . → Read More: Peter MacKay’s expensive limo rideContinue reading
The victors are often said to be writing history. Then why have terrorists defined the last decade of history as the “Post 9/11″ decade, if they aren’t the victors? Or are terrorists simply the excuse given by radical reformers in government who have now overtaken the previously cherished civil liberties that were rights for Americans […]Continue reading
I get emails. Most often from angry far-right lunatics who generally suggest that I’m either a lesbian (but that’s not the word they use) or so ugly that I could never get a man (much, of course, to the amusement of my male partner). Or, graphic sexual slurs in general land in my inbox. Today’s […]Continue reading
