Firedoglake has a post up on mandatory sentencing and similar ideas we should avoid.   Read it.

Wha…?

From Firedoglake

Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) claims that

“[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she’s just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet — we didn’t need Nancy Pelosi to do that”

Who saved the planet 2000 years ago?  Cosidering the history of the last 2000 years, why did this person do such a crappy job of it?

Why is another provinces’ MP mailing me

Posted in Canadian politics with tags , , on August 17, 2008 by solenadon

In mid July I recieved a Frank mailing from Brian Fitzpatrick.  And this past week I recieved one from David Anderson

Which is strange because my MP is Rod Bruinooge

I wondered, why are these Saskatchewan MP’s sending me frank mailings…mailing that look quite a bit like election propaganda.

Turns out I’m not alone.  Other Canadian’s are recieving these. 

I wondered why MP’s other than my own were sending out these mailings.  These mailings seem to be geared to push fear buttons, especially on crime and drugs.  No actual information is given, just an attempt to push buttons.

This is somethign that offends me.  These MP’s do not represent me.  Why are they sending me mail?  Why are they wasting Canadian taxpayer money to push a partisan position?

It seems that Stephen Harper is taking a page from the Republican play book…push fear of crime despite the fact that crime in Canada has been decreasing…which is ironic considering their in-and-out scheme.

Westboro cultists bullies are dealt with

Posted in Venomous mammals with tags , , on August 10, 2008 by solenadon

The Westboro Baptist Church cultists showed their true colours and their true faces today.

Yellow Cowards.

These oh so brave cultists threatened to picket Tim McLean’s funeral on Saturday. This young man was the victim of a brual and senseless murder last week. These cultists

wanted to let the world know their believe their petty deity let this happens because it is mad at Canada because of our “filthy ways”.

One contingent was stopped at the border. Another got through.

But when a counter protest was planned, these “brave” people never showed up. Ms. Phelps-Roper claimed that (From Winnipeg Freee press http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/story/4210468p-4802837c.html)

 

“A couple hundred people, are you kidding me? That’s child play, usually we see 1,000 people out there,” she said. “God can do things that you wouldn’t imagine, the last thing I am worried about are some brutes Canada. We will know what to do when the hour comes.”

250 people turned up outside the funeral to counter-protest these cultists. Apparently their deity had better things to do on Saturday.

Also, her claim that “it appears there is no religious freedom in Canada.” is BS. We have plenty Freedom of religion here. But the citizens of Winnipeg decided that a families’ right to mourn their son was more important that a cult’s self-rightousness. The WBC’s right to picket does not mean they can picket unopposed, as seems to be Ms. Phelps-Ropers mis-apprehension.

Westboro Chruch at it again

Posted in Venomous mammals with tags , , on August 7, 2008 by solenadon

Westboro Church, famous for proclaiming “God hates fags” at funerals is coming to Winnipeg on Saturday to repeat their schtick at the funaeral of Tim McLean.

Said a spokesperson of these “people”:

“God hates you, and it’s because of your rebellion against his word that this child is dead.”

7 membes of this Church will be in Winnipeg on Saturday.
