The rot in Wisconsin continues

As a followup to the my earlier post about a Wisconsin Federal Judge declaring that the legislation  passed by Governor Walker and his sultry crew of union bashing tea baggers was unconstitutional, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin has now overturned that ruling and the laws stand.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
