Toronto’s Mini me mayor speaks, and we cringe … again

  I never realised Doug Ford didn’t think women drove. No, seriously. I laboured under the delusion Doug and his brother Mayor Rob were mayors of all citizens of the sprawling mess we lovingly call the GTA, not just the men in their little enclave in the suburbs. It’s difficult to separate the muddled meanderings [...]

Private agendas & an utter contempt for judicial independence

I didn’t closely follow the Casey Anthony trial that just wrapped up in the US. It was a 3 ring circus of media lynching, unrealistic jury expectations of CSI like evidence and political bullshit. If you are interested in the sordid details of the trial, just Google Casey Anthony and you’ll be up to your [...]

Just what the U.S. needs, one more idiot

What a class act!

I keep waiting for Sarah Palin to finally dig a hole deep enough that she finally finds where she buried her decency and brains.

Oh come on …. now you’re just being stupid!

Ah… smell that? The faint whiff of rampant homophobia in the air. The idiots that scream from the rooftops about being “pro-family” (is anyone actually anti-family?) and rant about the “homosexual agenda” would be amusing if they weren’t so down right stupid and dangerous. They have this quaint notion gays and lesbians are lurking on [...]
