Choosing the direction of one’s culture

Motivational speakers never tire of repeating the mantra that the people with whom one associates are a reflection of one’s aspirations.  If you choose to spend your time in the company of individuals whose priorities are conducive to personal growth and financial or spiritual enhancement, then chances are you too will direct your energies in those directions.  If you associate with individuals whose interests fall into dissolute or dishonest pursuits, then it’s a good bet that’s where your energies will go as well.

First Minister’s Photo-Op In the Offing

Canada’s current government has been in office for about two years. Not once in that time has Prime Minister Stephen Harper seen fit to meet with the provincial and territorial leaders at a first minister’s conference. Suddenly with the high Canadian dollar impacting export businesses from east to west,  Harper has agreed to just such a meeting, but only after several premiers demanded it. My question is why. Why now, why not earlier and why this particular issue?

Black segregation seems to be politically correct

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) is currently holding meetings in an attempt to start a “blacks’ only school” in Toronto. This is the 21st century, so of course the proposed learning centre cannot be referred to as “blacks’ only”—the fancy politically correct name is an “Afro-centric” school.

What is it about the Image of Jesus that threatens today’s authorities?

Jesus ChristWe the people—not just the Americans but free people everywhere—are going to have to rely on memory and imagination for any link to Jesus Christ.

Politically correct minions out there trying to score brownie points with the enemy are trying to force any vestige of the Son of God from the human radar screen.

Just like in the days of the Romans, it is against the law to honour Jesus when world Caesars demand that honour for themselves.

Is a nuclear Islam really desirable

Strong rhetoric has been heard over the past weeks regarding Iran’s nuclear efforts and the suspension of constitutional rights in Pakistan.  Iran proclaimed a milestone this week, asserting that it had achieved full operation of some 3,000 centrifuges tasked with refining uranium and claimed that soon it would have 54,000 such centrifuges in full operation.

Home Alone never again for Fido

imageHave you ever rented the DVD Benji in a desperate attempt to keep your pooch entertained while you were out at the supermarket buying groceries?
 
Do you worry about Fido who’s been home alone all day when the boss tells you that you have to work overtime tonight?

It all comes down to discipline

The Sunday Times of London did a piece last week about parents in the U.K. of African descent that send their children to Ghana to go to school. The schools in the West African country have something that schools in Britain and in fact in the West do not have—discipline. The parents resort to sending their kids abroad in order to keep them out of the gang culture that seems to be increasing in major urban areas.

World’s most lovable rebel needs new heart

imageFrom the first step he took on to the world stage, Lech Walesa was destined to leave an indelible memory.

A walking symbol of the overthrow of the communist regime in Eastern Europe in 1989, Walesa rekindled new hope for the legions shackled by soul-killing communism and with all odds against it ever happening, the terms “Gdansk shipyards” and “Solidarity” became household words.

Senate Abolition VS. Senate Reform

This week NDP Leader Jack Layton publicly called for a referendum on abolishing the Canadian Senate. Not surprisingly it’s a move that seems to be getting some support from inside the Conservative government.

Hijabs, Veils, Burkas, Masks, Balaclavas, Hoodies Kirpans, Turbans, and Quebec’s Ethnic Cleansing

How’s that for a headline!  That’s Caan-aaa-daah today.  We are supposed to be a Nation,  but actually we are now just one of about 600 plus nations within our borders (can’t keep count) of kind, caring and sorry-assed wimps that have allowed their intellectually unfit politicians and power hungry legal beagles to con them into believing that Canada’s brand of Multiculturalism is a model for the World.  They actually brag about it.

Choice—it really isn’t a Canadian concept

The Toronto Sun is doing several pieces this week on the controversial issue of the right to die. In a pro-euthanasia article, Donald Babey, the executive Director of Dying with Dignity Canada wrote a column of course supporting peoples’ right to die with help from a doctor. Entitled “Euthanasia debate is about choice”, Babey begins his column as follows:

Let my pedos go!

Joy Smith, the Conservative MP from the Manitoba riding of Kildonan-St. Paul is planning to introduce a private members’ bill in Parliament on human trafficking. The introduction of the bill follows two high profile cases of Canadians who are alleged to have committed serious sexual crimes against children in various Asian countries.

Racism isn’t just for whites

In recent years the dialogue surrounding racism and racist attitudes has gotten ever more strident and progressively more bizarre.  The latest doozie on racism emanates from the University of Delaware, which until last week had a plan in place that required student residence advisors to acknowledge that “all whites are racists”.  Following an uproar of monumental proportions university President Patrick Harker cancelled the program.

McGuinty Should Keep His Hands Off the GST Cut

Dalton McGuinty sent a strong signal this week with his new cabinet appointments that he intends to continue with his tax and spend agenda. He signalled what could amount to expensive moves by growing cabinet to 27 people, appointing a Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, creating a new cabinet committee on ‘poverty’, and entertaining municipal requests to increase the PST. These moves demonstrate that he is ignoring all economic indicators that the Ontario economy may be in for a rough ride.

No medal for my father

imageThe New York Times reported in 1942 that Germany had developed a plan to systematically exterminate Jews. The story was buried far inside the paper for it was preposterous and unthinkable. Many papers ignored it

It did happen. It went far beyond the ordinary evil of war. Its inhumanity stunned the senses of the civilized world. What kind of a person would find satisfaction in calculatedly murdering millions of helpless men, women and children? The solution to “the Jewish question” was decided upon and drafted sixty years ago at a buffet luncheon in a posh restaurant on the outskirts of Berlin. They ate well and drank fine wine and the best brandy - then fifteen well educated senior government officials laid plans to murder three million people.

Get a load of G.I. Joe, Hollywood version

imageIn a world of too many politically correct inspired revisionists, the lines keep being rewritten.  Everything that existed in the past is passe and long held traditions are being tossed into history’s dustbin.

Cindy Sheehan and the Code Pink gang must be in raptures.  G.I. Joe is on his way out in ever-creative Tinseltown.

The Botox-dependent Hollywood screen writers are now proposing a new live-action movie based on the G.I. toy line.  A few martinis later and he’s no longer G.I. Joe.  The Hollywood version has taken out membership in an “international force based in Brussels”, home of the all-glass and all-neutered European Union.

“Start worrying, details to follow”

A while back, I read a reasoned article suggesting the survival of Israel was important to the free world. My feeling is that the survival of Israel is more important today than was the survival of England in the last Great War. With a thousand times the firepower around today, the stakes are much higher. The enemy is far more deadly and committed…and a shade looney.

The new morality

All cultures require a set of moral principles in order to maintain a sense of self-worth.  Our own culture is currently in the process of redefining our understanding of morality to better conform to the dominant social and political ethos.  All that was once a moral imperative is now passe and a new sense of morality is appearing on the social and cultural landscape.

“The Rich are Getting Richer—The Poor are Getting Poorer”

The truckload of distorted information that is spread around every time Statistics Canada (Statscan) publishes income statistics about the incomes earned by Canadians must be challenged.  The use and abuse of the figures verges on the hyped up rhetoric of insanity. “The Rich are Getting Richer and the Poor are getting Poorer” the pundits proclaim and often the cries emanate from professionals, politicians and news editors who should know better.
