Baffled Canadian Writes To U.S. Voters

Baffled Canadian Writes To U.S. Voters After Midterm: ‘You Don’t Know How Good You Have It With Obama’

Author: Jameson Parker November 9, 2014 10:44 pm


As an American, I’ve found myself dizzied by the hypocrisy of the midterm election: a majority of people reported that the economy was their number one concern, and yet they overwhelmingly voted against the president who has been bringing the economy back on track and instead gave the reins back to a political party which was almost entirely responsible for derailing it in the first place. So if I was confused, imagine how it must look to the outside observer. Americans must look nuts.

Michael Moore to Bill Maher

By Michael Moore (@MMFlint)

Bill Maher is a friend of mine. He stood up for me when I was attacked after my Oscar speech (given on the fourth night of the Iraq War, a war Bill publicly opposed while 70% of the country, including the majority of Democrats in the U.S. Senate, supported it), and I stood up for him when ABC fired him and cancelled his show when he attempted to stop the hysteria and fear-mongering after 9-11 — resulting in the Bush White House publicly ordering him to watch what he says — or else. When Bill got his HBO show, he went on a 7-year tear against the Bush administration and became one of our most unapologetic and unrelenting voices against the insanity being shoved down our throats.

I, for one, am glad there’s at least one top comedian who isn’t afraid to say the word “capitalism” or give credence to the good of socialism. Keep reading, there’s more info!

Pakistani illustrator writes to Ben Affleck on radical Islam

‘Your heart’s in the right place but…’

Creator of book ‘My Chacha Is Gay’ tells American actor he shut down the opportunity for a productive dialogue on radical Islam.

Last fortnight, Gone Girl star Ben Affleck caused a storm when he got into a heated debate with US TV host Bill Maher and American author Sam Harris over their views on Islamic radicalism. Appearing on the show Real Time with Bill Maher, Affleck attacked Harris for suggesting that Islam was a “mother lode of bad ideas” and skewed Maher for maintaining that liberals fail to condemn the lack of personal freedoms, especially for women and LGBT minorities, in the Muslim world.affleck

The actor claimed that Maher and Harris were being racist and were making generalisations about Muslims. “How about more than a billion people who are not fanatical, who don’t punish women, who just want to go to school, have some sandwiches,” he asked. “It’s stereotyping.” Keep reading, there’s more info!

Vacation Breasts

Got your attention did I…read this article.
Much like test-driving a hot rod at a dealership, women are now able to test out a hot rack with the advent of Insta Breast, a new surgical procedure that allows women to try out temporary breast implants.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Norman Rowe told ABC News:

The saline gets absorbed by the body. It’s for the women who don’t have time for implants.

It’s a procedure that can take as little as 20 minutes and cost between $2,500 and $3,500. Rowe provides a saline injection into women’s breasts that allows them to have breast implants for 24 hours.

The motive for the invention is for women to have a way to accurately test out breast implants. Rowe says,

You can use 3D imaging and put implants in bras, but it’s another thing to see what the weight will actually feel like and what it will be like to live with the new breasts.

The surgeon says he’s going one step farther, too. Rowe is in the process of creating temporary implants that will last for two weeks, because maybe a single day with implants is just not long enough.

He calls them “vacations breasts,” and says they could be ready for use in about two years.

Rowe says “vacation breasts” would be perfect for special occasions like weddings and getaways, and would also give women a better idea of what it’s like to live with implants.

He said,

Twenty-four hours is great. But it’s still just 24 hours.

Muslim Beats Woman For Showing Her Face, Instantly Regrets It When Husband Shows Up

Here is a piece worth reading to bring a few things into perspective…

November 10, 2014
In Muslim countries where Islamic Sharia law is rampant, no one, not even a Muslim, is comfortable living under a caliphate, or Islamic state.

However, Muslims demand that they must, as per the Quran, abide under Islamic law, although they become victims of the intolerant, apartheid rule under which they establish.

This explains why Muslims are miserable even in the countries where their religion dictates absolutely, including regions which ISIS controls.

Such was the case with a Muslim woman and her incursion with a lone ISIS fighter. Keep reading, there’s more outrage below!

‘Hug a Terrorist’ campaign is insulting and offensive

A pro- Palestinian campaign at McMaster University is an insulting piece of crap and the students involved should be heavily chastised. After everything that is going on around the world involving terrorists, this is the best they could come up with to bring more light on to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict…really?

The university’s Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) group is held a “Hug a Terrorist” event in the student centre Thursday with hopes of raising awareness of the civilians — particularly children — being killed in Gaza.

The event (based on a controversial viral video of the same nature filmed in Toronto this summer) will feature a handful of children in the student centre atrium asking for hugs while holding signs that say “Hug a Terrorist.”

The idea is to “put a face to the children who, every day, are facing harsh realities of the (Israeli-Palestinian) conflict,” said SPHR president and Mac student Yara Shoufani, adding civilian and even child victims are often described as terrorists as a way of justifying the attacks.

The idea of connecting images of children and saying hug a terrorist is so insulting that it is offensive. Really are trying to say those children are terrorists? I doubt it but that is the impression it gives, and that is sick.

Ira Rosen, of the Hamilton Jewish Federation Public Relations Committee wrote in a letter to the Hamilton Spectator in which he stated, “This stunt is morally reprehensible and deeply offensive and casts the very real human suffering caused by terrorists as a joke. It is an insult to the memory of Canadians, indeed to all people, who have fought and died at the hands of terrorists.

Moreover, it does nothing to contribute to a genuine understanding of the Israeli-Arab conflict, let alone promote a peace that benefits both sides. We look forward to the day that Palestinian activists unequivocally disavow terrorism and affirm the right of Israeli children to live in security. Until then, such grotesque campaigns will only continue to betray the safety and security of all children and the legitimate interests of all Israelis and Palestinians.”

This is nothing more than a stupid stunt by stupid people who think they understand a conflict that accuses the wrong people. No one wants to see children or anyone being killed
but as long as Hamas controls Palestine the Israelis are not safe and they should be. The Palestinians should be safe as well but our involvement in the wrong manner does not help and in today’s society where we are constantly bombarded by news stories of terrorists around the world, are you so stupid that you do not see how insulting this is to to everyone and especially your campaign because you will get no support from the majority with the idea of hugging a terrorist. Now was a stupid time to use this stunt, especially with the terrorist killing of Nathan Cirillo and Patrice Vincent. Obviously a university education doesn’t always give some common sense.

Liberals win due to lazy voters…really?

A response to MR. JOHN VALERI of Waterdown concerning his letter to the Spectator. He says that the only reason the Liberals won in the last provincial election was because of low voter turn out. He says they only won because 50% of the voters did not go out to vote. He says we got the government we deserved. Well sir, you are right we did get the government we deserved. You have obviously missed the point here and that is the it wasn’t 50% of the voters who didn’t turn out, it was 50% of the voters who did not want to vote liberal but they were going to be damned if they voted for a wing-nut like…what the hell was his name …. oh yeah…. TIM HUDAK. Maybe, sir you should chew on that for a while because yes the voters who turned out got what they wanted.

Muslim groups ready to talk

Through dialogue, ignorance and stereotypes that lead to fear can be erased

Hamilton Spectator
By Raza Khan

Thank you T. David Marshall, and to The Hamilton Spectator for the article entitled “Time for a difficult conversation” that ran Nov. 7.

Mr. Marshall, the Muslim community has been ready and willing to have this “difficult conversation” for quite some time.

Let’s talk.
Over the years our community has had regular dialogue with several faith communities including St. Paul’s United Church in Dundas, St.

Andrew’s on the West Mountain, the Christian Reformed Church, and Temple Anshe Sholom in Westdale, to name a few. We have had a number of great conversations and continue to maintain great friendships across Hamilton.
We as Muslims do not need to defend Islam — it is more than capable of defending itself.
Before anyone writes off the Koran and Islam
NO ONE IS WRITING IT OFF, UNFORTUNATELY(and thus, 25 per cent of the world’s population and growing) as “violent” and “problematic,” one need only read the whole of the Koran and study Islamic history to understand the context of the bits and pieces you find to be violent. You will then see that it is not the “violent parts” that cause people to embrace the religion in droves here at home and around the world, but its global, unifying message of the oneness of Allah (God), the equality of all men and women in the Eyes of Allah, irrespective of race or
socioeconomic status, as well as the soul-caressing peace and hope that its message expounds.

The West’s Dangerous Enchantment with Islam

This is a very good article with many fine points that should make us think.

Muslim Women Thrown “Under the Bus”
by Uzay Bulut November 9, 2014

There are no women’s rights in Islam; there are no women’s rights in most Muslim countries. And there is no freedom of expression in these countries; people have become virtually voiceless.

To make a positive change in Muslim countries, we need to be able to speak openly, without putting one’s life at risk, and tell the (too-often criminalized) truth about what Islamic teachings and traditions actually contain.

If one is called “racist” or “Islamophobe,” the answer is that these are the accusations bullies always use to silence those who disagree with them. The real Islamophobes are those who degrade, abuse and kill their fellow Muslims.

If oppression of women is rooted in the culture, shouldn’t one be asking, ‘what makes a culture that misogynous?’ Keep reading, there’s more info!

Want to Annoy Republicans? Show Them This…

Though Republicans have made bigger in roads into the US government this November this piece from 2013 still holds.

April 26, 2013 By Allen Clifton
Every once in a while I like to use what I call “fun facts to tick off Republicans.” Just a few facts that conservatives might argue with, yet can’t really counter without looking foolish.

I highly encourage all liberals to share this with their conservative friends. Then watch as they haplessly try and argue against each

Here we go:
-Nowhere in our Constitution does it say we’re a Christian nation.
-In fact, no where in our Constitution does the word “Christian” appear even once. Keep reading, more fun below!

We still haven’t figured it out.

A little time out for some thought about Christ and religion. He is knocking on everyone’s door to tell them that Religion is the lie and that we were to follow what HE said — not follow him–
We are the Temple–no need for Temples– yet we still haven’t figured it out. Churches, mosques, synagogues and temples are not what a deity needs because the deity is everywhere, The only ones who need these buildings are the religious leaders so they can get money from you. We are the temples, God is in us and if we respect ourselves and others that is all we need to please any deity. What is not needed are the temples and the controlling rules that cause dissention among all men and women and countries. We need to all be the temples and we can remove the disruptive evil that causes dissent among mankind. We need to free ourselves from religious leaders before they destroy us all.

How dinosaurs shrank into birds

Come on, I bet you have always wondered how dinosaurs turned into birds. It’s hard to picture leviathans turning into little itty bitty furry flying creatures. So here is an article to help explain this evolutionary situation.

Scientists have mapped how a group of fearsome, massive dinosaurs evolved and shrank to the likes of robins and hummingbirds.

Comparing fossils of 120 different species and 1,500 skeletal features, especially thigh bones, researchers constructed a detailed family tree for the class of two-legged meat-eaters called theropods. That suborder of dinos survives to this day as birds, however unrecognizable and improbable it sounds.

The steady downsizing and elegant evolution of the theropods is detailed in the journal Science. Keep reading, more amazing info below!

Caliphate In Europe: Sweden Cedes Control Of Muslim Area

When reading this article one must note that multiculturalism has nothing to do with this problem in Sweden. The problem is Muslim Supremacy and not all immigrants are a problem.

Political Correctness: The perils of multiculturalism and open borders have reached critical mass in Sweden. There are Muslim enclaves where postal, fire and other essential services — even police officers themselves —require police protection.

A police report released last month identifies 55 of these “no-go zones” in Sweden. These zones are similar to others that have popped up in Europe in recent years. They formed as large Muslim populations emigrating to politically correct and tolerant European states refuse to assimilate and set up virtual states within a state where the authorities fear to tread.

Soeren Kern of the Hudson Institute has documented the proliferation of these zones. They are de facto Muslim micro-states under Shariah law that reject Western values, society and legal systems. In these districts non-Muslims are expected to conform to the dictates of fundamentalist Islam or face violent consequences.

“A more precise name for these zones,” says Middle Eastern expert Daniel Pipes, “would be Dar al-Islam — the House of Islam or the place where Islam rules.”

Muslim immigration to Sweden has been fostered by an open-border asylum policy. In the 1990s, the country welcomed 100,000 refugees fleeing the conflict in the Balkans.

Sweden has also been a haven for refugees from Iraq, and a recent estimate put the number of Iraqi refugees living there at 125,000. Since September 2012, asylum-seekers from the Arab world are emigrating to Sweden at the rate of some 1,250 per week, writes Kern.

According to a report in the Daily Caller, Swedish police officers in May pursued a suspect into one of these zones in the southern city of Landskrona. Their car was rammed, the officers forced out. They were quickly surrounded by roughly 50 “thugs” and called for backup while holding back the threatening mob with drawn weapons.

Other officers who responded were forced to stop a half mile away, just outside the zone. The police commander didn’t press the issue fearing an escalation. Only with the help of a few residents whom the cornered police knew were the officers allowed to exit the restricted area.

Swedish police have not seriously tried to contest the zones since the 2013 Stockholm ghetto riots in which hundreds of cars and buildings were burned. The police report that there are now vehicle checkpoints operated by Muslim gangs on the borders of these zones. Instead of confrontation, Swedish authorities occasionally send special “dialogue officers” in a sort of Muslim outreach program.

So what do you think…is it possible to fix this situation or is it to late?
