On The Off Chance…

… that going for a dip in the freezing friggin’ ocean in the middle of a Canadian frickin’ winter isn’t stoopid enough to satisfy you…

Aw, screw it. Just watch.

Hocus Pocus

Filed under: Random Junk,Reader Questions,Society/Culture — Dennis @ 2:11 pm

I know that I said yesterday that I wouldn’t do this (New Year’s predictions are always like sticking your balls in a bear trap) but right now, I’m all hungover and my judgment is a little off, so here goes.

I’ve gotten nearly three dozen emails in the last 24 hours or so asking me just what the hell I think it is that we’re in for in the next 365 days. After all, they ask, everybody else does it, why don’t you? It’s not like I’ll end up looking any dumber than the next bozo who got it wrong.

And hey, it’s not as if I haven’t gotten a prediction wrong before now, is it?

So here I am: beer in one hand, ice pack in the other, coffee standing by. This should be interesting…

  1. The Sedition Coalitionâ„¢: Fuggeddaboudit.
    It’s deader than Elvis.  Under any leader but Steffy, it wouldn’t have even been considered in the first place. Even hardcore Grits were dropping big brown bricks in their Stanfields over the thought of what the electorate would do (and, in a lot of cases, likely still will do in the next election) to them for this one.
  2. The Conservative budget will pass.
    HM PM Harper will make just enough compromises to make voting it down political suicide.
  3. Lean times.
    The economy isn’t going to ricochet back to where it was but we’re not heading for a rerun of the dirty thirties, either. Watch as the whole notion of Keynesian economics takes a beating.
  4. Kyoto, schmoto.
    The latest eco-doom fad, aka Y2Kyoto, aka The Church of Kyotology, aka We’re All Gonna Die IV, will all but drop off the public radar. The two main reasons are: 1) As the science further unravels, the Goracle’s acolytes will have a progressively harder time selling this pig in a poke to anybody capable of dressing themselves and 2) It’s the economy, stupid. Nobody gives a rat’s ass about saving the polar bears when they’re busy enough just paying the bills. Look for Ellie May and the Greens to slide even further off the national give-a-shit screen.
  5. Iggy will be the new UberGrit.
    But it’ll be one hell of a short honeymoon. He’s said too many nice things about the big, bad Yanks over the years and that kind of thing drives Grits absolutely apeshit. Steffy was the second, Iggy will be the third.
  6. Baracklash will hit the US.
    Speaking of the Yanks, look for a bad case of buyer’s remorse backlash to set in south of the border as they realize that they elected an empty suit. The funnest part will be watching the media turn on his ass like a pack of starving hyenas.
  7. Harper hogties HLCs.
    Look for Canada’s Human Rights Abuse Industry® to find itself either hogtied or shitcanned altogether (preferably the latter). Too much stink has seen the light of day in the last year and as the Conservatives consolidate their positions, look for them to give people with a real interest in real rights, like freedom of speech, what they want. CHRC Grand Inquisitor Jennifer Lynch will be sodomized and gnawed to death (perhaps in that order) by a pack of rabid beavers while on vacation in Algonquin Provincial Park.

And that, boys and girls, is all the hocus I can pocus right now. I’m off for some more of the hair o’ the dog that bit me…

Out With The Old…

Filed under: Random Junk,Traditions — Dennis @ 4:31 pm

Happy New Year!… and in with the new. That’s how it goes, right? And it’s been one hell of a year, hasn’t it? Although I’m not in the habit of doing “year in review” type, bellybutton-gawking posts, I figure I’ll make a bit of an exception this time around and take a little look back… I just won’t be taking a peek forward while I’m at it (you only get in trouble that way).

2008 was weird as hell, alright. Some of what went on: (more…)

Bar Fight, Eh?

Filed under: Random Junk — Dennis @ 6:41 pm

Sorry but no time for anything else right now.

Wish I could say this surprised me, though…

You’ll die in a Bar Fight.
You are the angry type when drunk, and you can’t help but be violent towards perfect strangers. Unfortunatly for you one of those strangers is a kung fu master.

Entirely Too True

Some o’ This, Some o’ That…

Filed under: HRCs,Random Junk — Dennis @ 2:21 pm

Just some stuff...Not a whole lot of time lately, seeing as how I’ve been in SQL hell for the last 36 hours or so (don’t ask), so for today, I’ll just slap up a bunch of stuff that’s managed to catch my eye so far today. Hey, it’s what I do when I don’t have time to rant.

His Dorkness, Dion, seems to be back banging away on the “Scary Tory Agenda®” drum yet again. Is it just me, or is anyone else out there getting bored silly with this? If this is the best the Librano$ can pull off, how soon can we have our election already??

Liberal leader Stephane Dion says the minority Conservative government’s record contains a clear pattern that constitutes an undeclared “war on federal institutions” that, if left unchecked, could permanently destroy public confidence in vital organizations.

Speaking of bitch-slapping governmental institutions, Ezra has a post today on one little machiavellian machine that he Hypogrits set in motion that’s desperately in need of killing but the Tories have somehow managed to overlook:

Now let me state the obvious: the decision by the Justice Department to intervene was made before Rob Nicholson was the minister — even before the Conservatives were the government. It was made when Irwin Cotler, the Liberal, was minister, if I’m not mistaken. Ever since then, federal lawyers have been beavering away in support of section 13, along with other tax-paid lawyers from the CHRC (and the gaggle of Jewish censors from the Canadian Jewish Congress, B’nai Brith and the Simon Wiesenthal Center).

Putting aside politics, if a previous Justice Minister instructed his lawyers to intervene in support of censorship, it’s those lawyers’ duty to do so until their instructions change. And, since the Conservatives have not yet changed course on section 13 — or any other aspect of the Canadian Human Rights Commission — it should not be surprising that Justice Department lawyers are still serving up the kind of junk history and psychobabble that is evident in this memorandum.

As a nice little local note, London City Council seems to be growing a brain. It’s starting to look like $70 grand of local taxpayers’ bucks isn’t going to get pissed away in yet another dumbass “study” that will do nothing more that give more money to the Professional Studying Crowd. Seriously, kids, if London needs a performing arts centre that damned bad, let the damned rich snoots (who will be the only ones that go there anyway) pay for the friggin’ thing:

Coun. Stephen Orser takes it even further — Londoners simply don’t want a performance centre that, in his view, would cater to the rich.

“I’m not a wealthy person nor are most people in Ward 4 and this shouldn’t be placed on our backs,” he said. “We should stop this at the consultant’s stage right now.”
