No, this isn’t going to be a rant about the registry; not today. Everybody and their dog has been wondering just what the hell might be going on between Uberdipper Jack! Layton’s ears these days and I have to admit that I’m no exception.
How could this guy possibly want to trot off into an election right now? Is he nuts? Forget for a minute that his health isn’t the best; he still started off the week at least seeming to have most of his marbles. The MSM hasn’t been saying much about it (no real surprise there) but when the budget came down, Layton said he wasn’t making up his mind until after caucus. Seems logical to me so far. So then the budget comes down, and even Canadian Labour Congress Complainer In Chief Ken Georgetti, of all damn people, says it’s good. Didn’t see THAT one coming, did you? (Don’t feel bad; neither did I.) (more…)

… for a chilling conversation fragment to overhear at your local pub?
“It could be done. It would take fewer than a hundred men to storm parliament and gun every one of those bastards down.”
No, I’m not making that up. But I wish I was.
Anybody who doesn’t live in a cave already knows what kind of Machiavellian shit has been going down in Ottawa lately. Never mind that they just had their worst electoral performance in the history of confederation (an even worse showing than they put in for the Diefenbaker and Mulroney landslides), the God damned Librano$ still think that they should be the ones to govern the country.
So what if the Canadian people didn’t elect us? So what if the Canadian people not only gave the Tories another government, but a strengthened one at that? Screw the Canadian people. WE rule this country as our God-given right because WE are the Liberals! If those unwashed idiots are too stupid to elect us, then to hell with them.
Lets’ get something straight: I’m not scared of this so-called “coalition” getting their hands on the national tiller. If it happens, it won’t last and as far as I’m concerned, if the Grits want to pull the pin on that political grenade and swallow it, I say “bon appetit!” You want to know what does scare me? This does (think damned hard about it, too):
- No matter what their protests to the contrary may be, this is about nothing more than greed and lust for power. Period. They couldn’t get elected and were threatened with having their lips pried loose from the public teat, so they plot the overthrow of the democratically elected government by coup d’etat. And that is exactly what it is.
- There are men in this country who will be sorely tempted to take matters into their own hands. No, I’m not talking about drunken braggarts; I’m talking about dead serious sons of bitches who will not fool around. And if that genie gets out of its bottle, God help us…
Here’s hoping things get a lot more boring real soon.

Layton has one.
No, really, I’m being serious here. For once (just this once), I’m saying something nice about Jack Layton and I’m not being a smartass: the man does, in fact, have a brain.
Granted, he doesn’t use it all that often, but he dusted it off and trotted it out the other day.
By now, just about everybody and their duck knows about Dion’s little Carbon Tax Excellent AdventureÂ©. Most of us were likely thinking (like I was) that Jumpin’ Jack!â„¢ would hop on that brain-dead bandwagon like a viagra addict on a $2 hooker, but he didn’t.Â Nope, not this time. Ol’ Jack actually came out with something eerily resembling common sense:
Ottawaâ€“A carbon tax would place an unfair burden on low-income Canadians, Jack Layton said yesterday.
“Those advocating a carbon tax suggest that by making the costs for certain things more expensive, people will make different choices,” Layton said.
“But Canada is a cold place and heating your home really isn’t a choice.”
How the hell did that happen??? Granted, he did get right back to the stoopid right quick (putting the screws to industry, blah blah blah; read the article), but he still had himself a good brain moment for a few seconds there.
Congrats, Jack. Go buy yourself a beer.

Once again proving that they wouldn’t understand a damned thing about the military if it jumped up and bit them of their sorry backsides, the Grits, Dippers and Blocheads managed to shove a dumbass motion through the House today, which demands “a moment of silence” (which is okay) and the lowering of the flag above the Peace Tower on any day a Canadian soldier is killed overseas (which most definitely is not). Some people might, with all respect and good intentions, think that this is a good idea. It isn’t. What it is, is yet another sorry example of the Leftist obsession with taking any real tradition and watering it down to meaninglessness. Peter Worthington hit the nail on the head in his column today:
Rather than supporting our troops, I’d argue it was a cynical political ploy aimed solely at embarrassing the government of Stephen Harper, which has ruled that the flag be flown at half-mast only on Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, or on specific commemorative occasions, like the death of the Sovereign. […]
“Respect” for our military from Layton? Poppycock.
With all due respect to Mr. Worthington, I’d have used a word a little more bluntly honest than “poppycock” but hey, it’s his column, right? It’ll have to do. This idiocy reminds me of when, a while back, the HypoGrits were squawking out their fartholes over the Tories’ supposed “abandoning” of the “tradition” of lowering the flag for a day for every Canadian soldier killed. One little problem with that: there was never any such tradition. The Chretien Grits started it in 2002 after we lost 4 men at Tarnak Farm. Veterans’ groups were disgusted by it. There was never a “tradition” of lowering the flag for each and every soldier. If there were, most of us would have never even seen the flag at full staff.
Think about it. We lost about 67,000 in the Great War, another 45,000 in the one after that, and hundreds more in Korea. This doesn’t include soldiers killed in those lovely, so-called “peacekeeping” operations that Leftists get so hot and bothered about (until they turn into real work). A little bit of simple arithmetic shows that, by the Grits’ logic, we should have lowered the flag in 1914 and wouldn’t be due to raise it to full staff again until sometime in the early 23rd century. Not exactly the mindset we want when thinking of the men and women who provide us with our freedom.
Don’t be fooled by the Leftist hype on this one. This has nothing to do with our soldiers. Not a damned thing. What it does have to do with, is the Grits and their fellow travelers constructing the illusion that they actually give a shit about our military after inflicting years of abuse and neglect on the very people that they’re suddenly pretending to care so much about. The Tories know better…
OTTAWA — The federal government is standing by its decision not to lower the Peace Tower flag following each casualty in Afghanistan, despite a vote by opposition MPs yesterday calling for a reversal of the policy.
The Conservatives see their position as a matter of respecting history and point out that the Canadian flag on Parliament Hill’s Peace Tower has never been routinely lowered for individual military deaths during past wars. The government is also taking a hard line on the issues, say Tory sources, because it believes some opposition MPs who supported yesterday’s bill are trying to draw attention to the Canadian deaths in Afghanistan for political gain.
Soldiers don’t want this. The National Council of Veteran Associations doesn’t want this. The Canadian Legion doesn’t want this. Right now the flag gets lowered every November 11th, in honour of all soldiers who gave their lives for this nation, and that’s enough. They don’t want any more than that.
When you lower the flag often enough, it becomes meaningless. Soldiers understand that. And God bless them for it. (more…)

Canada’s foremost chickenshit, Taliban Jack!â„¢ was at it again lately. For those of you who’ve been under a rock (or smoking some liberal-approved crap) for the last couple of days, Jumpin’ Jack Jerkweed was wringing his hands and running up the white flag on our mission in Afghanistan faster than you can say “who gives a rat’s ass about duty, morality or any of that other shit, when I can milk the coward vote in the next election:”
“It’s an endless mission. There’s no end in sight. We say it’s a dead end,” Layton told reporters Thursday.
“No one has laid out, anywhere, that it’s possible to ultimately win a war in this region.
“No one. And historical experience shows that it’s been impossible — whether it be Alexander the Great, the British in the 19th century, or the Russians in the 20th century.
“We’re saying let’s recognize these historical realities.”
Will somebody… PLEASE… kick this asshole in the balls for me?
What the hell am I thinking? Balls?? On this weaselshit little prick??? Dennis, lad, give your head a goddamned shake. Not to mention the fact that if you were to shove his brain up a gnat’s ass, it’d look like a BB in a boxcar.
First off, if you think that Alexander the Great got stopped cold in Afghanistan, you’re even dumber than ol’ Jack!ass Layton is. Alexander ploughed through the Afghans and marched clear through to India. He even founded Khandahar (named after himself) in the 4th century, BC.
Second, the Brits did put down an “insurgency” in Afghanistan. It was a little thing called the Second Afghan War, around about the late 1800s, and the Brits stomped a mudhole in ol’ Ayub Khan’s ass at the Battle of Kandahar in September of 1880.
And if you really think that the big, bad Mujahideen managed to whup the Soviet Union’s butt all by themselves, then you take the top pinhead prize. It was massive foreign involvement and support, most of it by the Yanks in the CIA, that broke the bear’s back.
In other words, when it comes to tackling a professional foreign army, the Afghans are long on reputation and damned short on substance. But don’t just take my word for it; look at what’s happening in country with our troops. All you ever hear about is, a roadside bomb, an IED, an attack on a [school/hospital/aid group/bunch of Korean missionaries/whatever], a bomb hidden in a… blahblahblah ad nauseum. Why do you suppose this is?
The answer is simple: the reason that you never hear about any “major engagements with the Taliban” anymore is that, every time they crawl out of their hidey-holes and try to face our soldiers in any kind of a real fight, they get their asses handed to them! So, they hide like vermin and plant bombs in the night and only dare to face those who can’t fight back. And if they can behead somebody for teaching little girls while they’re at it, well its so much better then, isn’t it? And these are the assholes that Jack!off Layton loses sleep over, wondering if they’re being treated nice enough when they get caught.
So just what the hell does all that junk above have to do with the title of this post? Well, it has to do with where I ended it up: all the kumbaya moonbat bullshit worriying over the fates of the scumbags that fail to find their way to Allah and end up captured by our very own Jolly Green Giants. The loopy left thinks we should all pinch a collective loaf at the very thought that some medieval, murder-minded maggot might get a little banged up at the hands of their nasty turnkeys. General Rick Hillier, on the other hand, has a view that’s more in line with mine:
The general said he heard about the reports when he was on vacation in the Dominican Republic with his wife. “I was on my third rum and Coke and I really didn’t give a damn,” he said with a chuckle.
There you go. Come on, now… What’s not to like? 😀

… that it’s the God damned Dippers that are looking like they’reÂ the ones hammering awayÂ at the No-Brainer Bellâ„¢Â on this one??Â Yes indeed, boys and girls, the bacon has once again taken to the skies as the NDP are talking sense.Â Fer cryin’out loud, people, this one is so damned screen-doors-on-a-submarine simple that even the socialists have it figured out!
So why the hell do they seem to be the only ones hooting about it?Â And why the hell has the same damned idea had to be presented THREE TIMES and still not pass???
TORONTO – The Ontario government must set aside partisan politics in favour of common sense and ban wooden fire escapes on residential buildings, the New Democrats said Thursday.
A private member’s bill being introduced by Michael Prue is his third attempt to rewrite the fire code and implement two recommendations of an inquest into a fatal fire in Toronto in 1999.
“I think this has to be obvious to everyone, that to have a wooden fire escape on the outside of a wooden building is tantamount to asking for disaster.”
Wooden fire escapes?Â WOOD???Â As in, “the stuff that trees and firewood are made of?”Â You’d think that the widget polishers down at Queens Park sould just stick this one in the “don’t whiz on the electric fenceÂ®” file and be done with it.
But nooooooooooooooooooo…Â Apparently these bozos need to be clubbed with the brainstick at least three times before it gets through; maybe more.
