Robert Dziekański - There's More To Blame Than Just The RCMP

May 9, 2011

I see the Robert Dziekański incident is rearing it's ugly head again. One thing that's always eluded me about the whole affair is how everyone focused solely on the RCMP using a taser on him and ultimately causing his death. Yet, no one has ever addressed what led to the incident to begin with - and…

My View on Latest Wikileaks

November 29, 2010

As anyone with a fraction of a vested interest in the world knows, there's a whole lot of hub-bub around the latest release by Wikileaks of US diplomatic cables.

Here's my thoughts - DAMNED GOOD FOR WIKILEAKS.

Sorry, Obama, but disclosing such documents is not a bad thing for transparency. In case y…

John Cleese on Sarah Palin

October 2, 2010

The following video is a little old, but since every now and then Sarah Palin still shows her stupid grinning face in public ever so often, and Republican idiots still think she's "all that" and should be president, I thought it would be interesting to share an comedian (and scientist's) impression …

Gossip Should Be a Fireable Offence

October 1, 2010

The title says it all - I strongly believe that there is zero room in the workplace for gossip, and it incredibly detrimental. People lose their jobs over fake stories these lie-mongers spread.

It's a disease.

If you have a cancer, what does the doctor do? They cut it out.

Gossipers should be surgic…

If Koran Burning = All Christians, Then Terrorism = All Muslims

September 10, 2010

Okay, so perhaps threating to burn a bunch of books (i.e. the Koran) wasn't the best idea, but I think the Islamic world needs to check their reaction just a little.

It seems that protests to the proposed Koran burning includes chants like "kill all Christians" ... because of 50 folks down in the mi…

September 3, 2010

As anyone living in B.C. knows, the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is still a raging issue, and it's impact has also once again raised the issue of minimum wages in this province (a fair enough progression, given HST typically means more taxes [despite what pundits claim] and BC has the lowest minimum w…

A Thought on Donations

September 1, 2010

I was listening to news radio yesterday, and they were reporting on the difference between disaster relief for Haiti vs. Pakistan, and how people should really donate more to Pakistan as their disaster is even bigger than Haiti's.

It got me thinking - all these agencies keep running after us "averag…

Thoughts on the Sacking of McChrystal

June 23, 2010

So it seems that Obama has fired McChrystal. I guess Obama is no different than George W. Bush when it comes to criticism - agree with me, or get fired.

And here's the thing with that position - the USA (and her more wimpy allies, like Canada) spout off all the time about how everyone hates us "for …

Pakistani Lawyer Wants Mark Zuckerberg Executed

June 18, 2010

As a Christian, I couldn't let this article slide without making a comment.

On Slashdot, there's an article of how some Pakistani idiot wants to have Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook executives (and the pseudonomous user who initiated the "Draw Muhammad" contest last month) executed on blasphemy c…

USA - Land of the Free - So Long As You Do What We Tell You To

May 29, 2010

In an unprecedented act of "you have no rights", I came across this article referring to the FDA's position on raw foods. Of particular interest are these comments from the FDA:

  • "There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food."
  • "Plaintiffs' assertion of a 'fundamental ri…
