CBC News: Antonin Scalia, U.S. Supreme Court justice, dead at 79. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwiuCX5Sg
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, 79, has died. He was appointed to the top U.S. court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan and was known for his strident conservative views and theatrical flair in the courtroom.

It is interesting to read about his relationship with Ruth Bader Ginsberg, with whom he disagreed about almost everything. A good lesson for us all.

Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose says it's "shameful" that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is pulling back from the combat mission against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, even as the United States lauds the new Canadian contribution.

Actually, I think it's more shameful how quickly the Conservatives start beating their war drums and rattling their sabres, at the drop of a hat.

I support the new approach proposed by the Liberal government; I think it's a more effective long-term solution than non-stop bombing runs. Heck, even the U.S is calling this approach "a model for other countries looking to take the fight to ISIS."
Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose said it's "shameful" that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is pulling back Canada's CF-18 fighter jets from the fight against ISIS, while the NDP sees the changes announced today as having the potential for mission creep.

I would ask why are we involved in the first place? This is a US manufactured mess created in part by Paul Bremer's misguided disbanding of the Iraqi Army when the US went sniffing about looking for WMD's that didn't exist. We're going to spend millions training more Iraqis? How many millions, no billions, have the US dumped into this bottomless pit to produce troops that fall back rather than fight when confronted by a smaller attacking force and in their own country? Mistaken:Trudeau and misguided:Ambrose. Canada should wash it's hands of this mess and go help out in a place where we can do some good. We should be helping the French in Africa.

That was a pretty bad ass fight.
I can't believe how easily Bellamy was suckered in by Pike... What a gullible idiot. Something tells me Pike's plan won't go as smoothly as he thinks it will. 
In last night’s episode of The 100, we finally got to see Lexa, the fearless commander of the Grounder coalition, fight in one-on-one combat. And she kicked some serious butt. It was yet another reminder that this is one of the most feminist shows on TV right now.

B.C. cabinet minister Peter Fassbender said the council is doing what it should to address the issue, and the province will wait to make any potential regulatory changes until after the advisory group's recommendations are put forward.

"The real estate council is there to do exactly what they're about to do now," Fassbender said. "The less regulation we have and the more self-policing we have, as in the case of the real estate industry, the better."

In other words, as predicted, the BC Liberals plan on doing sweet f.a. to address problems and bring in some regulatory control. They'd prefer to let the REC investigate, because, y'know, having a body investigate itself has worked so well in the past. /sarc

The BC Liberals have been liberal in name only for years now. They have far more in common with the federal Conservative party than the federal Liberal party, at least when it comes to business and finance.

At least the provincial opposition is calling for an inquiry into these sketchy realty practices. I just don't have a lot of faith that the BC Liberals will agree to it. 
The B.C. NDP's housing critic is calling for an inquiry into Metro Vancouver's real estate market over a technique known as shadow flipping, under which sales contracts are reassigned, in some instances multiple times, before a deal is closed.

I suppose it counts that these things are being reported. Maybe more general public awareness will make a difference, although that's definitely taking the long road.

"Why is it every time I need to get somewhere, we get waylaid by jackassery?"
Introduction
Information professional; husband; father; pack mule.

Interests:
I love sci-fi and fantasy games, movies, books, and everything in between.

Politics:
I try to maintain an open mind, but for the most part I'm left-leaning; that said, I don't necessarily support any particular political party, and I'm critical of all of them. I'm also very passionate about privacy rights, and transparent and responsible government.

Religion / Philosophy:
I'm an atheist (apatheist to be exact), but I tend towards a "live and let live" approach to religion and philosophy. So long as you respect my beliefs I'll respect yours... assuming your beliefs aren't completely nuts or in any way infringe upon my rights and freedoms.
That said, for me, science and logic trump belief and ideology every time.

My Rules:
  • I do not tolerate rude, obnoxious or offensive comments on my posts.
  • I will not tolerate anyone using my posts for their personal soapbox or to push their own agendas.
  • I will not tolerate insults or personal attacks on any of my circled friends.
  • I will not tolerate trollish posts, intended for no reason than to irritate other posters or stir up trouble, or inane comments that add nothing to an ongoing discussion.

These types of behaviour will result in your post being deleted and / or you getting blocked.

In addition, if you show up to comment on any of my posts, and you're nothing more than a blue head with little to no content or information on your profile, expect to be ignored at the very least, or have your comment deleted.

Note:
While I expect others to respect the rules as they are laid out above, I am not beholden to them. What's the point of having a social media page if I can't use it as an excuse to be a hypocrite? ;-)
