“Basing the entire country’s economy on the success of the oil sands was nearsighted,” said Harper. “If elected Prime Minister, I promise to base the entire country’s economy on the success of a different fossil fuel, like shale gas, or bone smoke.”
OTTAWA - With the 2015 election just around the corner, Stephen Harper has launched a major political offensive, lambasting the current government for...

Oh my god, this looks awesome!

For those of you who haven't seen the original film, it's hilarious, and the perfect summer flick.

Looks good! I like the direction they're taking with the post-RotJ storyline, and honestly, as much as I love the EU, this does make sense.
 
Synopsis for Shattered Empire Comic

Emperor Palpatine's twenty-year reign of terror came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire's Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before!

Morons.

The VPD are very tolerant of pot smoking, usually turning a blind eye to small amounts because they have better things to do with their time.

That said, possession and selling of pot is still technically illegal, and the cops had stated that anyone caught selling pot at the protest would be arrested. Plus, they'd already warned this particular person to stop.

And after all that, this idiot refused to stop, and one of his buddies decided to try obstructing the cops.

I have no pity for assholes like this. The cops were being very patient, and just doing their jobs.

Different Tim Hunt, just so we're clear. 
In early June, Nobel laureate Tim Hunt was asked to speak at a luncheon sponsored by the Korea Federation of Women’s Science and Technology Associations at a science communications meeting in South Korea. What he said there is now Internet history. He made a series of sexist comments, saying that...

Sorry Rona, I'm afraid Vancouver's Chief of Police simply doesn't consider Vancouver's marijuana dispensaries a priority at this time.

Not that I expect James Moore to actually do anything, considering he's not running next election.
 
Rogers was officially approved to take control of Mobilicity. This will mean fewer choices for Canadian cell phone subscribers when wireless prices are already increasing at 3 times the rate of inflation. Speak out at https://openmedia.ca/gatekeepers
They’re wasting tax-payer dollars. They’re misleading Canadians. And they’ve become gatekeepers to essential services. We deserve better.

Is anyone surprised? 
It's the most expensive weapon ever built in human history. But after decades of internationally-funded research and development at an estimated cost of a trillion dollars, a leaked report from a mock combat test reveals that the F-35 is terrible at air-to-air combat.

Not to mention that the F-35 isn't suited for the harsh Canadian environment without expensive retrofitting.. and will still be grounded in less than favourable conditions.

Groovy, baby.
Bruce Campbell is back as Ash, and he's looking bloody heroic in this first official photo from Sam Raimi's Ash Vs. Evil Dead. He is joined by fellow Value Stop employees Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo ) in the image. Starz is bringing the series to Comic-Con next week, so if you're there, they are probably going to show off some footage from the highly-anticipated series at the panel they are having.  The series is cu...

It's Canada Day, and in the giving spirit of our wonderful nation on this special day, we offer the US the wonderful gift of Jim Carrey.

He's all yours. No backsies. 
On Tuesday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB-277 into law, removing the ability for parents to opt out of vaccinating their public school-age children for personal and religious exemptions. In the wake of this, I knew the anti-vaccination cavalry would be mounting their steeds. What I wasn’t expecting was a...

O Canada, where maple syrup flows cool and clear from the mountains, where the beavers drink Molson Ice, and every moose will loan you the tuque right off his head. 

Today we salute the best frickin' neighbors a country could ever have.

Pure sleaze, that's all I can think of when listening to this smug ass sit and spin.

Is this really the type of dirty, divisive politics we've come to accept in Canada?

Story
Tagline
"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. That type of behaviour will result in your post being deleted and / or you getting blocked.

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? ;-)
