    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/World/2007/08/22/4438030-ap.html We're all used to the increasingly restrictive nature of modern life. Thought police are everywhere and there's not a day goes by some new crew of dogooders doesn't launch another campaign. What the hell is it with some people? Give...

    Time to ditch Stats Canada

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2007/07/18/crime-stats.html Interesting stuff! Then CTV has on an explosive report last night. Stats Canada refuses to include drug offences and drug crime in its compilation for these critical numbers. You'd have to live in a chipmunk hole not to know the way...

    How the GW myth is perpetuated

    "Don't forget global warming is only ONE problem we have currently. Assuming we will survive the pandemics and epidemics coming our way and avoid any nuclear altercation global warming is sure to undo us..." That's what's needed to finally turn heads on GW.

    http://www.boston.com/news/world/asia/articles/2007/04/17/china_hoarding_h5n1_samples_for_over_a_year_who/ Makes you wonder. Why would the Chinese be reluctant to share such important data? Is there anything sinister here or is that merely the conspiracist bug whispering in my ear?

    Hijab Day...good idea or bad?

    http://www.thestar.com/article/202275 One has to wonder if professors initiating such activity are opening a can of worms or simply doing their job. But, similarly, I also wonder what would be the effect on the Jewish community if she suggested Skull Cap Day. Would said community embrace it or...

    http://www.thestar.com/News/article/202661 This could have come from Toronto. Fighting off the PC has become a major battle for the city's police and politicians as they deal with the issue of black crime in the city.

    http://blogs.phillyburbs.com/blog.php?p=11523&cat=8 Personally, I think he should be used for organ transplants but I'm a little more of a prick than most.

    Dad lands in jail over Girl Scout cookies

    Yes, he's a mooch, liar and a moron. Unfit to be a father or a member of any community. He's made of the wrong dough and he doesn't seem to have any.
