The Squared Circle

It was last Friday at Las Staple Centre where 29-year-old Ricardo Mayorga out machoed veteran Fernando Vargas and sent the tough super middleweight into an early retirement after a very tough, 12-round majority decision. Both pugilists showed a noticeable animosity towards each other, which culminated in a pier-six brawl at a prefight press conference.

Exploiting Justice O’Connor’s Tragedy for Political Points

I have to say, this little L.A.Times editorial really takes the cake for insensitivity. It should receive some sort of award for being one of the most gauche pieces I’ve seen from the extreme leftists masquerading as “journalists” for a long, long time.

Planned Parenthood Ottawa denies local charity drive freedom of choice

Planned Parenthood Ottawa (PPO) is trying to make a Tree Raffle, launched Monday by the wives and girlfriends of the Ottawa Senators NHL hockey team, their business.

  The Senators’ “Better Halves” launched a holiday fundraising campaign and one of the organizations set to benefit from the money raised is First Place Pregnancy Centre.  The Centre is an Ottawa-based organization that advertises it “wants you to be empowered to make your choice”, but will not provide women facing an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy with referrals to abortion services.

Not Enough Parking for Private Jets Going to UN Climate Conference

As climate alarmists from all over the world head to Bali to talk about the sacrifices regular folks have to make to save the planet from global warming, it seems certain media will ignore all the private jets clogging the tiny airport.

New York Times hopes for SCOTUS Gun Grab

The “paper of record” once again makes like a broken record with another prosaic call to take away guns from the average American. The New York Times again displays its complete disregard of the Constitution in an editorial titled, “The Court and the Second Amendment”, claiming our founding law is out of date and doesn’t “confront modern-day reality.”

Will Californians Face Social Chaos Imposed by Politicians?

“I shudder to think how millions of California children will be led astray, how marriage will be destroyed, and how immorality will step on the neck of morality if Arnold Schwarzenegger signs five anti-family bills into law. The ‘Terminator’ has less than two weeks to sign or veto very bad bills!” said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families.

Moslem Group Attacks Michael Savage: The Battle Between Taquiya and Talk Radio

You will have to forgive me, but I have a difficult time taking the war against Moslem extremists seriously.  No, I haven’t become the latest in a line of anti-American quislings who say the war is “all about oil” or that Islamism is not a threat.  It’s just that I have trouble mustering enthusiasm for overseas ventures when we allow the enemy’s fifth column to operate virtually unopposed on our shores.

A Woman’s Place

I spoke with Diane Walter, Executive Director of Margaret Frazer House. This organization has been in existence since February of 1984 and was named in the honor of former schoolteacher and social activist Margaret Frazer who left a strong legacy on the Toronto community with her involvement in a variety of landmark charities such as Nellie’s.

Batten down the hatches – Climate fear-mongering to get worse

The Commonwealth conference just completed in Uganda provides a preview of the rhetoric we can expect from delegates at next week’s United Nations Climate Change Conference on the island of Bali, Indonesia.

Britain’s Prince Charles, now a devoted climate campaigner, told the Commonwealth conference, “Climate change has become the greatest challenge facing mankind… It has become a question literally of survival for Commonwealth members like Tuvalu and Kiribati.”

The almost politician-free Santa Claus parade

The small town of Milton, just west of Toronto held its annual Santa Claus parade on Saturday. Last week the organizers announced that with the exception of Milton Mayor Gordon Kranz, no politicians would be allowed to march in the parade. No other local politicians; no provincial MPPs; and no federal MPs.

The siren song of environmentalism

It seems the more information that surfaces about the UN’s ineptitude, the more hysterically individuals are buying into the UN’s warnings about climate change, albeit no definitive evidence of the deleterious effects of this phenomenon have as yet been identified.  Aside from a few unusually warm summers, which were also evident throughout the 1930s, no one has drowned or starved or lost a home as a direct result of global warming.  No islands have been inundated, no flash flooding has occurred in the northern latitudes and 15 minutes ago as I stepped outside the temperature was still below the freezing mark.

An Epidemic of Falsehoods

The UNAIDS program has issued its annual report in which, finally, it doesn’t say how many more current HIV infections there are this year than last. Rather it drops the figure by over six million from its 2006 estimate. Specifically, it went from 39.5 million to 33.2 million. Further, the Agency now admits the number of new HIV infections per year peaked way back around 1998.

Bangladesh Government Disingenuous with US Congress and others Worldwide

Dear Ambassado Kabir,

In response to worldwide outrage—and in particular outrage here in the United States—-over Bangladesh’s continued persecution of journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, your embassy has responded in an almost dismisive way that we should leave the matter to the Bangladeshi courts.

Voluntarily Giving up Rights—Boston’s Outrage Against the Constitution

The recent outrage against Constitutional liberty by the Boston Police raises some very interesting questions. Can we voluntarily give up our Constitutional rights? Further, can government legally violate our rights even if we ask them to do so? These are questions that we all need to consider before allowing police into our homes, invited or no.

Probes into Taser use:  now there are ten

As pointed out in the National Post last week, there are now 10 reviews or inquiries on the subject matter of the use of Tasers by Canadian police. Attention was focused on the weapon a couple of weeks ago when a video of newly arrived Polish immigrant, Robert Dziekanski, who died shortly after being confronted by four RCMP officers and Tasered in the arrivals section of Vancouver International Airport, became public.
