No Commentary Required

This is what your kids are being taught in our wonderful, leftbot-infested public schools these days. Race-baiting 101.

New Brunswick’s education minister has ordered the cancellation of a school assignment that asked children which lives they would save if they had to choose among different ethnic groups.


The assignment also included images representing each of the different ethnic groups that they could choose to save.

The controversy began after Jessie Lomax complained when her 10-year-old daughter was given the assignment, which, the woman said, is better suited for “concentration camp employees.”

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.”

Rights and Privileges

Rights, privileges… what’s the difference? Far too many of us don’t know.

This presentation (by a Libertarian named Michael Badnarik) discusses the topic in the context of the American Constitution but it’s still some damned good food for thought for us north of the border.

Be warned: this thing is damned loooooooonnngg, so grab yourself a coffee/beer/whatever first. Here’s part one of seven:

And here’s part two:

This Is A Good Sign

You know something’s coming when they start softening you up with reassurances.

“Don’t worry, you won’t lose your jobs. Really.”

The federal Conservatives aren’t backing down from their pledge to scrap the controversial long-gun registry, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper told a Miramichi, N.B., audience Friday there will be “no loss of federal employment” in the area when it happens.

The prime minister told a packed arena that his government remains committed to abolishing the registry. In Miramichi, however, the promise takes on an added dimension from the typical debate over gun control.

Forces And Objects

Ah, it’s lovely, isn’t it? Xeno must be giggling his backside off in the afterlife somewhere.

Xeno, you might know, was that Greek chap who once asked what would happen if an immovable object were struck by an irresistible force. Well, we just might get the chance to find out; sooner than we think.  It seems that the force and object (you can pick which is which) of multicultism and politicorrectitude are well on their way to a lovely little meeting.

For as long as many of us can remember, the legions of Big Nanny have been hammering into our skulls that multicultism is the only way to go, tolerance for tolerance’s sake is the loftiest goal, no one is better than anyone else, everybody’s the best at everything, blahblahblah…

So, smartasses, what happens when multiculturalism smucks up against political correctness?

But what to make of the case last week of an Egyptian-born Winnipeg doctor who, for religious reasons, told a lesbian couple she was uncomfortable treating them? The couple says she refused to accept them as patients; her lawyer disputes this.

Medical ethics codes and human rights codes are clear: A doctor can’t refuse treatment on the grounds of sexual orientation. So, must doctors ignore their personal beliefs?

Well, will ya look at that?  The big, bad intolerant one’s a woman, to boot.  Let the games begin…
