The Church of Kyotology reminds me of Scientology (without the cool alien thing!)

Kyotology attacks free speech. Any questioning of the god Kyoto results in cries of "Global Warming" denier!

Kyotology says that public statements against Kyotology such as writing anti-Kyotology letters to the papers and in blogs is a "Suppressive Act" - a high crime, according to "Introduction to Kyotology Ethics."

In accordance with this policy (and others like it), Kyotology has tried to silence all criticism.

Kyotology betrays the trust of well-intentioned people by falsely claiming to have a scientifically-proven technology to save the world.

Clipping Dion Quotes ...

for the next election.

Here is a good one in french where Dion says that the Liberals will not use such american style negative campaigning - must have been ... other liberals that used american style attack adds ... in an election ... in Canada ... we are not making this up!

Dion says that it is deporable to fall so low!

We will see how low you go next election!

Il a poursuivi en affirmant que les libéraux ne se livreraient pas à ce genre de publicité « à l'américaine ». « Pour notre part nous ne voulons pas faire ce genre de campagne négative. Je veux gagner cette élection et je ne veux pas tomber si bas, je trouverais cela très déplorable. Nous voulons dire des choses positives, notamment sur mon bilan dans le domaine de l'environnement. », a dit M. Dion.

CTV Panicking!!!

About the "attack ads" - CTV.ca first poll on this stated: (see screen capture)

The Conservatives are planning to release adds attacking Stephen Dion. Is the campaign valid?
Yes, the media has given Dion an easy ride.
No, the ads are a desperate ploy to label Dion.

Now that poll question has been quickly removed from existence (note that it does not show up in the list of past questions --- click results and see for yourself) and replaced with:

The Conservatives are planning to release some new partisan TV ads. Do you think it’s too early for such a campaign?
Yes, ad campaigns should only be launched during an election campaign
No, it’s never too soon

I guess they got the original poll up before they received the Liberal Party Talking Points. Of course, they did not want to see what people really think about the easy ride Dion is getting!

Canada Responsible for 50% of Movie Piracy

Hollywood execs said it - so it must be true!

Great. Now I'm going to have to watch a movie from behind some Canadian snow-back who slips over the border; his camcorder blocking half my view, and my only connection to the movie the flashes of the screen I get as his flopping head jib-jabbers "aboot" the militaristic nature of American culture.

Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!
It seems that everything's gone wrong,
since Canada came along!

Where in the World is Mark Persaud?

Is the media biased or do we want it both ways? I remembered something last week about two Liberal MPs defecting to the Conservatives and kept my eye out for the usual interviews with angry members of the riding where former Liberal MP Mark Persaud sits. I couldn't find anything in the media about it. The MSM was so quiet on the issue that I started to doubt whether it was true or was I just imagining it. Did someone in the Blogging Tories just pull a prank? Then I tried a google search and lo and behold, yes it was true, but only a few talk radio stations covered what I would think would be very important news outside of the blogshere. Actually CTV did mention something about it but it was on their political blog.

I'm not sure why there was a cover-up on this. I mean the way the MSM was playing up the Khan defection, I would think that defections were big news and that it showed the Conservatives as "same as the old guys" when it comes to political opportunism. That being said, if defections in Canadian politics gets such negative press, then shouldn't we be happy that the MSM isn't making a big deal out of this. I'm just perplexed as to why one defection is so much more important that two. Could it be that a second backbencher leaving the Liberals for the Conservatives and getting no reward would show that they are leaving out of principal? Would it signal the end of Liberal dominance when it comes to attracting the ethnic vote? Or, was the MSM just doing the CPC a favour and not pointing out the flaunting of demecrocy that is floor crossing? Maybe Canadians beleive that in a domocracy you vote for the candidate as well as the party and one doesn't trump the other.

You be the judge. You can probably guess the way I'm leaning on this one.

Update: The answer is that its because Mark Persaud isn't an MP. I guess that makes sense. Thanks for the commenters who pointed this out without making too much fun of me. Cheers.

The GST Cut Will Have No Effect on Spending!!!

...unless you live in the real world. CTV is now reporting that consumer spending is up 7% in the third quarter, year over year. If you read this short little blurb of a story, that nowhere mentions the GST cut as a possible cause of this spending increase, you will notice that this increase has not been distorted by high energy costs, which actually went down from 26% from last year to 7.5% this year.

How can the media and the opposition, who were screaming at the top of their lungs that a cut in the GST would be meaningless to the individual as well as have no influence on helping the economy, be constantly so wrong and still keep their respective jobs. I figured they would be so tired of being wrong all the time that they would just throw in the towel. I guess you have to give them props for hanging in there.

More Liberal Incompetence

Maybe someone else out there has a different point of view, but isn't Ujjal Dosanjh the worst MP on Parliment Hill? Maybe he does good constituency work (although I doubt it), but he has got to be the most incompetent Defence critic in the history of mankind. From this CTV story - DND looking at one bid for search planes: report, Dosanjh comes up with this incredible bit of thinking:
Ujjal Dosanjh, the Liberal defence critic, said the process requires greater "civilian oversight" and is currently driven by military requirements. As a result, the government may not be getting the best value for its money.
Now I can understand that some people would want more civilian, hopefully democratically elected, oversight into billion dollar purchases by the government, but who the hell would argue that purchases by the military should not be driven by military requirements? What other requirements would there be? Commercial needs? The needs of the Homeless? Should the procurement fulfill the requirements of the nice comfy fur industry?

Dosanjh, its time to retire already!
