Ignorance is bliss

Until it mercilessly gropes your nether regions.
Before the assault, Ms. [Lara] Logan said, she did not know about the levels of harassment and abuse that women in Egypt and other countries regularly experienced.
How could that possibly be?

News you didn't hear

San Francisco.
Thousands of Christians gathered for an outdoor Easter Sunday service in San Francisco to publicly mock gays and humiliate gay heroes.

The flagrant attack, which included skits, obscenities and impersonations satirizing gays and gay stereotypes, sent shockwaves of outrage and disgust throughout the region and across the nation.

This report features photo and video documentation of the free public Easter service, which was attended by a majority of Christians in the city, who laughed at and insulted gays and the homosexual community.

And remember, there's no bias in the media. None. Whatsoever. (H/T)

In which farting becomes a criminal act

Indigenous Andean Gaia worship, writ large. Because what's good for Bolivia must be thrust upon us all.
Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving “Mother Earth” the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country. [...]

Bolivia’s Law of the Rights of Mother Earth... grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities, and the right to be free from pollution.

It's only a matter of time

... until they return to Canada.
About 20 Canadians have travelled to Somalia to join Al-Shabab, a federal official said two weeks after a Toronto man was arrested as he was allegedly leaving to enlist in the al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group. [...]

... Using an Internet propaganda campaign, Al-Shabab has attracted hundreds of foreigners, among them Canadians, who have flocked to Somalia to join what they claim is a global jihad against the West.

“Islamist extremists are radicalizing and recruiting Somali-Canadian youths within Canada to travel to Somali for jihad training,” reads a de-classified 2010 Canadian intelligence report released under the Access to Information Act.

Five planks with which to whip the NDP

The anti-capitalist, anti-growth, anti-competition platform, released today.
The NDP is also proposing a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gases, instead of imposing a carbon tax. [Where is the money coming from Jacko? Taxes. -ed] [...]

The centrepiece of the NDP's fiscal plan is to restore the corporate tax rate to 19 per cent and to crack down on foreign tax havens. [...]

There's also an NDP promise to compensate Quebec for harmonizing its sales tax, and another promise to pull out of the Afghanistan training mission.

HRM anti-idling by-law

Moronic ecofascists at work in Halifax Regional Municipality.
Halifax now has a noise bylaw that aims to prevent idling over five minutes, but the proposed new rules would make it illegal to run an engine in a motionless vehicle during a shorter time frame. [...]

The planned bylaw will probably have a stipulation that no stationary vehicle have its engine running for longer than 180 seconds, MacLellan said.
... including metro buses, police cars, construction equipment, transport trucks, school buses, emergency vehicles, eh?

Good luck with enforcement, chaps.
