The demographics for the right-hand group are always heavily weighted towards the liberal/progressive/left. Usually, because their chosen candidate gets weeded out in some kind of primary, or party leadership election. So they pout, and stay home. Funny thing, that.

Here in Canada, it's rumoured that Harper may call a federal election as early as next Sunday. 

In the last election, he managed to create a "majority" government with a popular vote of only 42%. And this will happen again, if voter turnout is as abysmal as it was last time. 

And meanwhile, the two opposition parties with any federal hopes, the NDP and the Liberals, are sniping voters from each other.

Oh, and the President is also the one who oversees all the cabinet branches that do the actual govmint stuff.

That #LampPost is a little ostentatious.

Prosecute the dentist.

Here's something you can't do a damned thing about.
When it comes to coverage of the Trans Pacific Partnership, no one in the corporate media covered the issue more than Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show. When it was announced last week that they were pulling the plug on his program, they effectively killed the only national voice that was talking about the...

Okay, I'm going to watch the 2nd half of 'The Counselor' tonight. Just to get it over with. There's a subtle tang of desperation here, but that's another story.

So far, it's more like Cormac McCarthy collaborating with Woody Allen than CM and Ridley Scott. Although frankly, I'm not sure Scott ranks as anything but an asshole anymore.

Oh, Vancouver... you and your "public art"...

Actually, I like this one. Much better than a row of identical fluorescent-pink polar bears emerging from the wall of a transit station.

Introduction
“Then God sent the Greyhound to live among man and remember. And when the Day comes, God will call the Greyhound to give testament, and God will pass judgment on man.”
Persian Proverb

We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
-- Werner Heisenberg

Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. 
-- H.L. Mencken

Muzzle a dog and he will bark out of the other end.
-- Malcolm Lowry

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones. 
-- John Cage

"When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail." 
-- Abraham Maslow (subtly paraphrased)

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' 
-- Isaac Asimov

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
-- John Steinbeck

History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again.
-- Kurt Vonnegut

Wanting to meet a writer because you loved his book is like enjoying some pâté and wanting to meet the duck.
-- Margaret Atwood

A biologist, a physicist, and a mathematician are sitting in an outdoor cafe. They watch two people go into a building across the street. Shortly thereafter, three people come out.
"Hmm," says the biologist. "It looks like they reproduced."
"Nah," says the physicist. "There was obviously error in our initial measurement." The mathematician looks up from his coffee. "Who cares? If another person goes in, it'll be empty."

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.
-- Catherine Aird  

"Faith and knowledge are related as the two scales of balance; when the one goes up, the other goes down… The power of religious dogma, when inculcated early, is such as to stifle conscience, compassion, and finally every feeling of humanity… For, as you know, religions are like glow worms; they shine only when it’s dark. A certain amount of ignorance is the condition of all religions, the element in which alone they can exist."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena (1851), cited in Who’s Who in Hell compiled by Warren Allen Smith

I collect signed first editions of Orwell's '1984', most of which are carefully stored in my basement suite in Venice. I also have a timeshare on the shores of beautiful Lake Vostok.

Not a bad used bookstore, but I'd warn anyone sensitive to cigarette smoke that the proprietor smokes in the shop and the air circulation seems to be bi-annual.
