Fill Yer Boots Mohammad

Excerpt from Mick Hartley:

""...............But, as Mohammad Sa'idi, international affairs deputy of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, explains on Iranian TV, there's no cause for alarm here. The heavy water's for drinking:

Interviewer: "You just said that in some cases, heavy water can even be used for drinking."

Mohammad Sa'idi: "Yes."

Interviewer: "Could you elaborate on this?"

Mohammad Sa'idi: "One of the products of heavy water is depleted deuterium. As you know, in an environment with depleted deuterium, the reception of cancer cells and of the AIDS viruses is disrupted. Since this reception is disrupted, the cells are gradually expelled from the body. Obviously, one glass of depleted deuterium will not expel or cure the cancer or eliminate the AIDS. We are talking about a certain period of time. In many countries that deal with these diseases, patients use this kind of water instead of regular water, and consume it daily in order to heal their diseases.

"In other words, the issue of heavy water has to do with matters of life and death, in many cases. One of the reasons that led us to produce heavy water was to use it for agricultural... medical purposes, and especially for industrial purposes in our country." [...]

"There is no connection whatsoever between heavy water and plutonium.""


The Governator Falls Prey to Greenhouse Gas Psuedo- Science

Take this little piece from

"California Governor, Legislature Reach Agreement on GHG Emissions Cap

On August 30, 2006, Governor Schwarzenegger and the California Legislature reached an agreement on AB32, the Global Warming Solutions Act. The Act caps California’s greenhouse gas emissions at 1990 levels by 2020. This agreement represents the first enforceable state-wide program in the U.S. to cap all GHG emissions from major industries that includes penalties for non-compliance. The bill requires the State Air Resources Board to establish a program for statewide greenhouse gas emissions reporting and to monitor and enforce compliance with this program. The bill authorizes the state board to adopt market-based compliance mechanisms including cap-and-trade, and allows a one-year extension of the targets under extraordinary circumstances."

Ok I'll admit that reducing polution is a very good idea........BUT is this going to drive California's economy into the dirt? Or is it possible that California's economy has very little GHG generating components? It's not exactly the rustbelt. Manufacturing industries generally don't create much CO2 which is really what they are talking about. And I suspect that automobile exhaust is responsible for the vast majority of California's GHG emmisions.

So can industry in the Golden state comply? I wonder if as things stand now there is even a significant increase of GHG's emitted by industry over 1990.

I know there is a significant increase from automobiles....but if you take away the automobile generated GHG's from the totals...what's left?

Anyone know?



Those MSM Services Sure DO Have a Problem with Facts.

1 - Associated Press - reporter Robert Burns distills a Donald Rumsfeld speech made to the Amrican Legion recently.

2 - Update on this speech and its reporting in the MSM- NYtimes does similar hatchet job to spin Rumsfeld's speech: Cut And paste this URL intp the browser Address Field to see............

Blogger mcQ at posts a side by side comparison of what Burns of AP publishes as opposed to what Rumsfeld actually said.

I'll summarize myself......
Rumsfeld was making a detailed and nuanced case by drawing parallels between Islamofascists and the Nazi Fascists of the 20th century. He responded to many recent issues faced by the American forces and the people. He questions the dogma of pacifist and other critics of the US efforts to wage a war on terror.

Burns asserts that Rumsfeld was accusing critics of appeasement. Well they are for the most part but that is not what he said.

Burns writes that Rumsfeld accuses critics of Moral and Intellectual Confusion. Again. that would be a true analysis but it is not what Rumsfeld said.

And on it goes! Click on the title above or the link below to see the posting.

Kate over at SDA makes this point: AP will be used as a resource for many news "sources" across the globe. So you can expect that the world will see a very different version of what Rumsfeld says. The AP version is only Robert Burns 'Interpretation' of the speach but that is not how AP posts it. There is no qualifier on the piece by Burns to state that it is his opinion or his interpretation while a simple analysis clearly shows that it is just that.

Once again the MSM is telling the world what they think instead of what happened.

AP credibility rating going rapidly to Zero..............

Lefty Hypocricy - Only Convenient Facts are Allowed

THIS from the very same Jack Layton who said we had NO TROOPS for Afghanistan!

Excerpt from CP article :

""MONTREAL (CP) - Canada has the capacity to contribute as many as 1,200 soldiers to the UN mission enforcing the ceasefire in Lebanon, says NDP Leader Jack Layton......""

Read the article to see how Layton suggests PM Harper is "dishonest" because no troops are being committed to Lebanon. Layton is So full of shit his eyes are brown!

How convenient Jack O' ! NATO commitments in AFSTAN = BAD so no troops today.

UN - bullshit with anti-Israel, anti- USA spin to it = GOOD so Harper MUST send troops.

Of course "Rainbow Jack" would only recognize the UN edicts. In his world demands from worthless self serving parasites ( Cofi Annan) who operate corrupt socialist bureaucracies are what counts and we should be in lock step with them.
Especially when it's got the Anti-USA and Anti - Israel sentiment underlying the effort....with the added bonus of maybe helping out some Islamofascists!

Living up to responsibilities undertaken with friends and allies ? Not in Jack's World.

Gordon Sinclair Jr.'s Not So Stealthy Message

I picked up a copy of the WPG Free Press this morning and went to the City& Business section as usuall. What was unusual is that I allowed myself to take a moment to scan Sinclair's B1 collumn!

" There's a stealthy message behind ribbons" BLARES the by-line!

Huh? Ok I'm hooked....... I read it once and spot some tyically assinine observation and comments.

But a couple of things got me thinking about just what the hell his point is. I read it again.

Man oh Man....this guy is getting worse than ever!

Apparently we are to think according to Sinclair Jr. that the display of bumper stickers that state "Support Our Troops" is some sort of subversive campaign to "Support The War".
Of course Sinclair's mush headed lefty ideology is blatantly displayed in his prose which enters into blather about "Flag drapped coffins" and of course the assumption that the display of said coffins ( which of course is one of the favorite activities of our stalwart lefty media types) will lead to more Candians questioning the war!
On he goes to take swipe at American foreign policy " Is it really about rooting out militant muslim extremists and confronting terrorists?" he asks. "Or is it more about about protecting America's strategic oil interests in the area?"
Sure Gordie baby! Nothing to do at all with cleaning up the shithole where thousands of murderous criminal thugs were trained to carry out attacks on the civilized world! Nothing at all to do with changing the environment that allowed a bunch of religeous zealots to take a suffering third world country back in time 7 or 8 centuries! Nothing to do at all with trying to establish some law and order in a region where lunatic war lords and would be despots thrived while plotting the destruction of civilization!

On he goes, Sinclair Jr. to take a swipe and smear our Prime Minister as " A george Bush Mini-Me, saluting his American mirror image..."

This one pretty much tells it all!

Gordon Sinclair Jr. is so wrapped up in his left wing ideolgy that he's capable of morphing a simple fact that thousands of Canadians care to display their concern for our military into an excuse to spout his own blatant anti-conservatism with mush headed socialist political dogma in attack on our Prime Minister and the US President.
The piece goes on with some more ridiculous nonsense about an e-mail chain letter that any intelligent person would delete to the trash bin if it got by the spam blocker....apparently something that Sinclair Jr. isn't bright enough to do....or is it because he is so hard up for ideas or an original thought that this is where he seeks his knowledge?

In my opinion....Gordon Sinclair Jr. should take his shit for brains political views and keep with like minded asshats! Buzz Hargrove comes to mind...........

Why the Free Press continues to pay this guy to write columns is a mystery to me!

BTW Gordie...the war is all about taking responsibility and doing things that need to be done in spite of what self righteous crybaby fools and slaves of politcal correctness say!

Big Dustup Forming over S.O.W

Plenty of links to this story through SDA.....

It seems that an effort by REAL Women of Canada to point out the inherent redundancy and self serving policys of the Status Of Women Canada is generating lots of attention!
Kicked off in July by REAL with a letter to the PM and others and kicked into high gear this month by bloggers such as Suzanne - (Big Blue Wave)......there has been a rush to engage the issue by an increasing number of folks from right and left!

No secret that my own sense of right and wrong makes the existence of an entity like SOW an athema to every concept of justice and fairness. Basically a Liberal creation to suck up to Feminist and politically correct social activist groups that has run amok without limits or supervision on its activities.

Most of the conservative bloggers are taking on the logic of the existence of the organization.
And some are questioning the ethics and policies of SOW.
MSM and certain womens issues types are getting upset and making really stupid retorts.

Politics aside..........I've been trying to make sense of the financial issues involved!
I'm having a hard time getting the figures presented to make any sense at all and I would dearly love to get the information correct.

Here's what I have so far:
Apparently the budget for Sow = 23 million / year (?)
Money spent on Funding = Approx 10 million for 04-05 (?)

Other activities apparently include:
- Reviewing Poposed Legislation to ensure that it fits their politically correct agenda
- Promoting "Progressive" social causes
- Undertaking media campaigns against Conservative initiatives
- Producing "Publications" that are basically repackaged research from other sources that is formatted to support SOW policy

Also their website is woefully in need of'd think that with an annual budget of 23 million they could manage to keep their public information portal current.

CAN anyone offer any substantive information on what they are doing with their budget?
I've tried REAL who have a report via AIA but their published info seems to be selective.
Is there a simple way to get the annual financial stements?

I smell a rats nest and thats not just because my political sensibilities are offended by the existence of this body.

The Universe Just Got a Little Bit Simpler!

Well the Braintrust at the IAU ( International Astronomical Union ) finally got down to the nitty gritty after the extended gabfest over the definition of "Planet".
It seems that our distant member of the Solar System family will no longer be part of the mnemonic : Man Very Early Made Jars Stand Up Nearly (Perpendicular)

Well scratch old perpendicular! er Pluto!

It seems the poor orphan god of the underworld has a wayward tendancy that has caused the astrophysicists and astronomers to expel the waif world from the brotherhood of the conformist worlds. Time out for bad behaviour! Pluto's orbit was deemed too eratic to qualify for first rate planetary status and so has been re-branded as a Dwarf Planet by the scientific community.

Well it does make sense, given that another option being considered was to expand the definition of Planet to include a host of bodies that would be just too much to handle.

BTW - How long do suppose it will be before some fool cries fowl and claims discrimination of dwarves because of the new terminolgy? Political correctness may come into play!

In any case thanks to the IAU for making our universe a little smaller and a little simpler and the work load of grade school students that much easier.


War On Terror - Do You Suppose This was Gods Will?

Click the link or the title above to see what can go wrong when you play with guns/bombs/ rocket launchers!

**Warning: Very Graphic Violence** Weak stomachs or bleading hearts will certainly be affected!

I do not know who these guys were but the implication is that they are Terrorists and this is a video that was intended to promote or instruct......

I paused to think about why this did not raise my ingrained WASP angst........can't really say why not!

More a case of serves you freekin right! Darwin always works in the end.

Commie Asshats!

You have got to get a load of this!

Buzz Hargrove...the "New Commisar of Canada" has no pretence at all of standing up for Canadian values. Hardcore communist rhetoric reveals the stupidity and absolute hypocrisy of the man....

Excerpt : ""...We want a society in which working people can have true, hope, security, and equality; a society with full economic and political democracy. To accomplish this, we need to be able to thoroughly regulate private business; manage employment, investment, and trade; expand public ownership and non-profit enterprise; and run the economy in the interests of working people. If we succeed, we will have fundamentally transformed our economy and society, replacing capitalism with socialism. ""

As if Candians don't already know what attrocities socialist states are!

Buzz You are a POS!

I Have a LOT of Respect for Jason Kenney Today!

Excerpt from today's CP piece about Kenney's comments on certain fools who wish to legitimize Terrorists! :


Kenney says that the decision by three opposition MPs - a Liberal, a New Democrat and a Bloc member - to visit Lebanon this week offers political legitimacy to Hezbollah.

He says they seem to feel it is possible to negotiate with a group that is not interested in peace.

There is nothing to negotiate with an organization motivated by hate, he says. ""

Too Bloody Right!

We Have A Winner! MSM over the top bias Again

CP....Said What? H/T to Ferret at Conservative Life Blog


How pathetic can the Canadian Press get?

Trying desperately to counter the efforts being made by Conservatives to court ethnic voters, the Canadian Press has pointed to individual posts made on internet forums as evidence that "there are still Conservatives who oppose Canada's immigration policy"...

In a recent post on the pro-Conservative website Free Dominion, a contributor wrote: "Personally, I believe we need to do two things: First, cut overall immigration numbers drastically. Second, make major changes to the countries whom we take most of our immigrants from. Enough with the terrorists, the socialists, and the citizens of convenience."

You heard me correctly, the Canadian Press, Canada's national news wire service, quoted a posting on an internet forum as evidence that "there are still Conservatives [note the capitalization of the word Conservative] who oppose Canada's immigration policy.

Recent posts on pro-Liberals websites show that there are still Liberals who believe...

Stephen Harper should be shot.

Conservatives are worse than Nazis.

Jews shouldn't be allowed to defend themselves.

First we have Reuters doctoring images to advance their agenda. Now we have the Canadian Press scouring internet forums for evidence that "C"onservatives still have a hidden agenda.


Feel free to let the Canadian Press know how you feel about their bias...


Muslims, terrorist and the USA ( Civilization not Just The US )

Well today it seems that Duke McGoo has hit on an excellent piece of writing about the Nature of The Islamist threat to the Western World!

Excerpt: "To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it. Our country is now facing the most serious threat to its existence, as we know it, that we have faced in your lifetime and mine (which includes WWII).

The deadly seriousness is greatly compounded by the fact that there are very few of us who think we can possibly lose this war and even fewer who realize what losing really means."


Which raises the question : "How can so many people in our society remain so steadfastly deluded in their belief that this movement ( Islamic Fascism ) is not a real and present Danger to the way of life that has generated nearly global prosperity and freedom?

Yes that's right I said nearly global Prosperity and Freedom.
Take a really good look around and you will see that in spite of the bleating of the Left a greater portion of the world is far better off than ever before. Yes the most well off are our western nations. Yes there are PLACES of desperation and futility.
But there are still fewer of these shitholes than at any other time in the past.
And you will notice that nearly every one of these holes is in the mess they are in because of prevailing ideologies like Islam.

The socialist proponents of our world would still have you believe that free markets and capitalist democracies are at fault for "Creating" disparities in the world.
But this is the BIG LIE that the laft and the left sympathizing MSM love to propagate.


So the darlings of left can do no wrong and the enemy is "The Great Satan" !

Wake Up and smell the coffee children because if you don't there are people out in the world who want to burn you in your beds, and they will succeed if you let them.

Terror Bomb Plot in Germany - Failed not Foiled

Terrorists in Germany attempted to bomb trains in late July!
The bombs did not go off because they were defective.
There is no word on any success in the subsequent investigation.

You did not see this story in the MSM here BECAUSE?

1 - They did not know
2 - They did not care
3 - The Aids Conference was a better opportunity to bash Harper
4 - Stories that inform you about Terrorist activity do not fit their agenda
5 - Better to show faked pictures from Lebanon promoting anti -Israeli sentiment
6 - No anti US / Anti Bush propoganda in this story
7 - Add your own.........

Link to David's Medienkritik to see the background on this....


Cut Across the Decades of BS Over Israel

How can people be so lazy as to not learn the history of the middle east as it pertains to Israel?

Israel was created through force by survivors of the WWII holocaust. Taken by coercion from the control of Europeans. Because the Europeans tried to exterminate them as a race..true genocide... they sought a safe haven.
The place they went to establish a safe haven for themselves was at the time part Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon.
They area was called Palestine but was NOT a nation and in fact was being ruled by European Military forces. AND this was sanctioned by the UN!

The new Israelis have forced themselves into the region but their efforts in the land have been directed toward BUILDING and Developing a modern and productive society that could live in peace.

It is entirely the Arabs of the region who have been responsible for instigating violence against the efforts of the Jewish immigrants out of jealousy and petty hatred for the success of the new nation of Israel. They have used racial hatred and religious intolerance to incite an ongoing siege against the presence of the Israeli state and the neighboring Arab nations have contributed to the incitement and violence against Israel at all times.
The term Palestinian is meaningless as any and all of the residents of the region are either Arab of other nationality or Immigrants of European descent.
The existence of Israel is based on a truth that a race that was deliberately subjected to a nearly global attampt at genocide was deserving of a place to exist in safety and peace.
The Arab hatemongers and their supporters exist for only the death and destruction of the this same race and the dream of having that peace.
These same hatemongering Arabs are responsible for the destruction of Lebanon over decades by waging an insurgent funded civil war. Yet all the world seems ready to blame this on Israel? Bullshit!

If the world was so fucking concerned about the state of Lebanon the world would have made damned sure that the Hezbollah warmongers and the other Arab hatemongers were not allowed to usurp the control of Lebanon from the People of Lebanon.

If the so called "Peacefull" Arabs had not been intent on using every opportunity to destroy the Jewish state and its people there would be prosperity AND peace in the region.

It is the ARABS who are perpetrating evil and only the ARABS.

Water Quality Fuss - All You Need To Do is Take Responsibility

Something near and dear to me is the topic of water quality.

The water treatment business is one area I make my living in and I do know a thing or two about the who, why, when and where of this stuff.

The recent article linked here is typical of the misrepresentation of facts related to the topic and specifically the use and abuse of resources ( money) that occurs in native communities.

Why? Well first here's an excerpt from the piece ( link to the title to see the whole):

""......HALIFAX (CP) - Canada's First Nations say they need more resources to better protect their drinking water.

Representatives from First Nations communities in Atlantic Canada addressed an independent panel studying drinking water today in Halifax.

Michael Cox of the Confederacy of Mainland Mi'kmaq in Nova Scotia says regulatory standards should be set for drinking water on reserves. ""

First, of all funding is and always has been available for infrastructure like water treatment plants.
Second, drinking water standards in Canada are well established and it is up to specific jurisdictions like municipalities or the first nations communities to see that they are implemented and enforced. All anyone has to do is refer to the Health Canada drinkng water quality standards and to any provincial or territorial Water Stewardship, department of health or Conservation office for detailed information. Provincial and regional water boards also have detailed progams and information.

Third, training programs are available in every province for managers and operators which include testing and certification for all levels.

Fourth, in every case that I am aware of, whether in a native community or elswhere...all failures of systems have been the direct result of neglect and mismanagement.
Thats right "Every Last One" that has become a problem has been caused by the people responsible for the management and maintenance of the systems.

In some cases the negligence has been egregious and even criminal. Walkerton for example.
In some cases it has developed through lack of attention and circumstance. North Battleford for example.

In any case this call by native groups to have special attention paid to their problems is just another example of the culture of victimhood that is so often exploited to coerce more money out of various levels of government and of course that means taxpayers. Lets see if the bureaucrats and politicians or rather how quickly the bureacrats and politicians will react to this with pledges of yet more taxpayers earnings to assuage the bleats of people who simply refuse to take responsibilty for the things that they are responsible for.

There is NOTHING special or unique about water on reserves. And there is no need whatsoever for any special regulation or funding. The same standards for quality apply to All Canadians and the technolgy and resources to implement the technology is already there.

By pushing this hot button topic and implying that the source of problems lies in some issue of funding or in a lack of clear regulation these so called leaders are simply playing that same old game that has led to so much waste and failure in the first place. Throwing money at these issues and playing games with public opinion ( uninformed and misinformed ) and resources.

The first nations communities in question are already responsible for the infrastructure in question. Any problems or successes with that infrastructure are the result their own management

So please stop the BS right here and now because no amount of bureaucratic meddling or special programs is going to change a damned thing.

Another Reason to PULL THE PLUG on the CBC

Steven Taylor grabs the evidence and posts it on the web!

For those of you who did not see the interview of's the point.
Harper's answer to the specific question was not even used in the pasted together report.
Instead the CBC used bits and pieces from other sections and even other interviews to fabricate a phoney piece.

Your tax dollars are being used to pay for this BS.
Are you going to sit there and take it?

Try contacting Vince Carlin at and the Director of News.
Complaints to CRTC about broadcaster standards and ethics - complaints.

Complain to Harper and to the ass Jack Layton .......

What's The Price of Freedom?

This is a question that many have asked and few have answered sufficiently.

I have a few thoughts on the matter as it applies to our current world situation.

The first thing to address is the definition of "Freedom".
You might be inclined to take the warm and fuzzy view of what it means. This is the view most often expressed by the children of the left it seems. You've heard the usuall stuff, mostly bleats about being free to do whatever feels good at the time with an undertone of freedom from being held responsible for their actions. Oh yeah and freedom to get any results that don't work for them or don't favour their own view changed by whining "It's not fair!"

On the other hand there are the things that I consider to be really important freedoms like the freedom to think and speak for yourself. Although I am inclined to view this as somewhat of a responsibility in a democratic society.
Also, the freedom to question and to criticize the powers that be. Although I think this is a responsibility as well.
How about the freedom to work and to earn your keep? Yep,that's kind of an obligation in a good society.

I'm inclined to think that just about any "Freedom" that you can name either is a responsibility or implies a coresponding one.

Isn't this the irony and the strength of a free society? That those of us who enjoy the freedoms of a democracy have a responsibility to sustain those freedoms by using them and by holding ourselves responsible for sustaining them?

Freedom is not about what you can get someone to do for you. It is about what you are willing to do for yourself.
Freedom is not about what is owed to you. It is about what you are willing to earn for yourself.
Freedom is not about whining and crying every time you don't get your way. It is about doing what you can to influence the world around you in a productive manner.
Freedom is not about destroying. It is about building and creating.

The price of freedom is taking your responsibilities seriously and taking them on, no matter how inconvenient or difficult or unpleasant they may be.

I'm pretty sure that in world today there are a great number of people who need to know these things. More importantly because there are so many people who are determined to keep everyone from knowing these things those of us who do need to be speaking more assertively on these matters. In fact we should be acting and demanding that those who wish to enjoy the freedoms of our society do their part to correct the incessant slide into nihilistic irresponsibliity that will only in the end result in the loss of our freedoms.

So wake up kids! There are such enemies of freedom rampant in this world. They come in all shapes and sizes. And the best way to recognize them is to hear their soothing urgings directed at you to give up your responsibilities over to them so they can look out for you. Every time you concede to them you permanently lose a bit of your freedom and endager the freedom of others.
