Who is John Titor?


Quebec infringed on...that's getting to be the norm here. Maybe that should replace 'Je me souviens'. I never cared for it much anyway. It's been so long I don't even know what we're supposed to remember!


The Supreme Court ruled that Loyola has the right to teach Quebec's mandated (and silly) ethics and religion class from a Jesuit perspective.


I have no problem with this because parents choose to send their kids to Loyola because it's a private Catholic institution. How bureaucrats think they can break this voluntary action and think it's proper is beyond me.

It really is sickening to have to grovel before the government to exercise our own damn rights. 

Good for Loyola.

Freedom of choice and religion prevailed before our paternalist interventionist state.


The race is on to see who is gonna be the bigger bigoted buffoon in the Parti Quebecois in all its magnificent hickishness. 

Pierre-Karl Peladeau opted for a more modern take on Jacques 'Black Jacques Shallaques' Parizeau's 'money and ethnic vote' from 1995. A timeless classic in the realm of PQ insularism; boundless in its parochial tin-pottery; mostly because Jack was probably tipsy when he said it.

There's nothing to clarify. It's how they roll.

As I've noted here in the past, they're just a despicable bunch of badly dressed nationalists.

Of course, it's always the fault of les autres. 


Onto more enlightening matters.

Evaluating milk and its substitutes (though Malk - which is packed with Vitamin R - was not reviewed) at Science-Based Medicine.


Obama wants to make voting mandatory.

Stagnant idea from a stale progressive mind. When fresh out of ideas, just mandate or coerce more taxes.

Nothing new here.


Oh, look it's our favorite progressive tyrant Tanya Cohen back with more of her insipid thoughts on freedom of speech. She's the pop-tart of modern intellectualism.

Cohen is a clear case of an individual lucky enough to spew her misleading gibberish packed with lies and one-sided nonsense on a website.

I'm not interested in breaking her inane article because there's too much to dissect but I did find this interesting:

"Do Americans have no idea how ironic it is for them to call their country “the land of the free” when it doesn’t have any kind of law against hate speech?"

It's not ironic at all. It's exactly the point and actually reveals America to be superior to all the other so-called civilized nations she so strenuously placed on a pedestal. 

The only extremist I see is Cohen and I demand she be removed from...wait. I will not become my enemy!

I'd better stop here before I throw my lap top against the wall and damage my lovely poster of Satan.


However, that being said, people like Cohen who happen to have a forum to express their views are being challenged quite vociferously and eloquently (for the most part) by people in the comments threads.

Thankfully, plenty of people are not buying the snake-oil their selling as is the case with the melodramatic tactics of feminists on campuses.


When the civil war for free speech ends and the forces of good emerge victorious, all the people who stood by either watching or who were on the wrong side of fence will claim they fought for the good guys. Just like every Frenchman fought in la resistance.


Sowell offers more insights on minimum wage - the killer of jobs for the underclass.

"...At an angry meeting between local small business owners and city officials, the local organization that had campaigned for the higher minimum wage was absent. They were probably some place congratulating themselves on having passed a humane "living wage" law. The group most affected was also absent — inexperienced and unskilled young people, who need a job to get some experience, even more than they need the money.

It is not a breakthrough on the frontiers of knowledge that minimum wage laws reduce employment opportunities for the young and the unskilled of any age. It has been happening around the world, for generation after generation, and in the most diverse countries.

It is not just the young who are affected when minimum wage rates are set according to the fashionable notions of third parties, with little or no regard for whether everyone is productive enough to be worth paying the minimum wage they set."

"...Low-income minorities are often hardest hit by the unemployment that follows in the wake of minimum wage laws. The last year when the black unemployment rate was lower than the white unemployment rate was 1930, the last year before there was a federal minimum wage law.

The following year, the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 was passed, requiring minimum wages in the construction industry. This was in response to complaints that construction companies with non-union black construction workers were able to underbid construction companies with unionized white workers (whose unions would not admit blacks)..."

But sophisticated and civilized Europe does it!


Results don't matter. It's the (pseudo-compassionate) thought that counts.

  1. Make voting mandatory?
    Same group who would allow the FCC to censor free speech online.

    A-a-a-a-h-h-h-h, "normal" people.
    The ones who carry hand-painted banners around stating "End violence now"
    ...but will beat the crap out of anyone who insults their best friends and lovers.
