HUH???Okay, so there’s been a lot of bibblebabble south of the border lately about something called “quantitative easing.”  So much that it’s apparently trickled into the conversation up here, somehow.

I have to admit, this isn’t something I’ve ever heard of before.  Seriously – quantitative easing sounds like something Stephen Hawking came up with to explain interstellar flatulence.  But why do we give a damn about it?  Well, let’s face it; we aren’t so intertwined as we once were, but what buggers up the US economy still has a nasty habit of taking a dump in the punchbowl up here, too.

That and, as we all should know by now, stupidity is contagious.

So, not wanting to be the guy who had nothing to say when someone asks “what the #@%* is quantitative easing,” I did some digging around to find out what the hell everyone is gabbing about.  Turns out it’s not such a complicated thing as it sounds.  It’s just bafflegabese for “printing up a buttload of money.”  Here’s how it “works” … (more…)

Of Floodgates and Fraudulence

“I think of the fall of Jerusalem in 69 A.D., and the fall of Rome, and of the USSR — no civilization falls because of external threats. They fall because of internal corruption, because of failing to be who they say they are.”

Great BritainIt’s no secret to anyone, nor has it been for a very long time now, that the political Left are infatuated with the politics of ethnic divisionism.  Despite all their accusations of “divisiveness” aimed at their opponents, it is and has always been they who gain the most by pitting cultures, classes and races against one another.

It has also long been suspected that the Left’s fetish for multiculturalism and mass immigration — even the importation of cultures violently opposed to their own interests — has more to do with keeping assorted socialists and neoliberals in power than with any of the problems those policies are accused of solving.  Suspected and met with apoplectic denials.

As increasingly pissed off Brits are finding out, the suspicions were truer than most would have thought possible.  Turns out the far-right kooks were right after all. (more…)

Well, Then…

So much for our “envy of the world healthcare” system.

Funny how the ubernannies had nothing to say until the ad ran

The Ontario government has filed a defence against a claim made by a Hamilton woman who’s at the centre of the U.S. debate over health care.

Shona Holmes is featured in a TV campaign in which she claims she had to mortgage her home and travel to a U.S. clinic for brain surgery in 2005, due to a six-month wait for care in Canada. The ad, which began airing about two weeks ago in all 50 states, warns Americans to reject Canadian-style health care because it failed her. In the ad, Ms. Holmes states that if she relied on her government, she’d be dead.

The filing — Ontario’s first response to a lawsuit launched two years ago by Ms. Holmes — was filed by the attorney general two weeks ago.

The lawsuit says Ontario’s monopoly over health services is unconstitutional and that long waiting lists cause patients to “endure significant financial, emotional and physical hardship to access such services in the United States.”

Little Surprises

I know I’m a few days late, but here it is anyway.

This is not a guy that I expect any profundities from… at all. I have to admit, he managed to surprise me a few times here (hokey-assed jokes notwithstanding).

It’s in ten parts, so you might want to grab a coffee first.

A Ray Of Hope

Wish the hell I had more time to go into greater depth about this but, to make a long story short, it looks like the Ultimate White Elephantâ„¢ is finally going to get taken out behind the barn and mercifully (for the rest of us, at least) shot dead.

God knows it’s about time we saw something like this. Maybe now they can start to get the hell off the backs of harmless gun owners (yeah, you read that right: harmless) and start going after some real scumbags for a change (via Gun Owners Resource).

Saskatchewan M.P. Garry Breitkreuz has introduced a Private Members’ Bill to scrap the decade-old Canadian long-gun registry (see link below to Bill C-301).

The long-gun registry was originally budgeted to cost Canadians $2 million, but the price tag spiraled out of control to an estimated $2 billion a decade later. Breitkreuz says it’s time to pull the plug on this useless money pit, because the registry has not saved one single life since it was introduced.

“The registry is a political pacifier created to give the impression that Canada would be safer for it,” explains Breitkreuz. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I believe Canadians would rather see their tax dollars keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and gangs, instead of trying to control law-abiding citizens.”
