Canada - Trial By Media

Canada – Trial By Media

I do not share Jian Ghomeshi’s preference for rough sex. Not my cup of tea. Don’t understand the attraction of that stuff. However, what happens between consenting adults, as long as it does not harm anyone else, is their business…not mine. Now several women are coming forward and accusing Mr.Ghomeshi of sexual harassment, physical abuse […]

Canada - Its Spelled G-R-E-E-D

Canada – Its Spelled G-R-E-E-D

The bank made a net profit of $6.7 billion last year.  Apparently, that is not enough for those greedy bastards. If you have an account with this bank, its time to close it.

Another view of the recent killings in Ottawa and Quebec by Russell Brand.  I guess if you kill a soldier, your a terrorist but if you kill a group of  mounties, your a criminal? Is it the religion of the attacker that makes a murder a terrorist attack? It seems like it is. Were these […]

Canada – Muslim Internment Camps

PM Steve must be walking around with a giant erection today. He’s an important man of the world now and Canadians are going to pay the price for that. Lucky us. The other NATO leaders have nothing on him. Nothing screams importance more than having Canadian soldiers dying at home because of you.   Its what […]
