Mark Steyn

~ STEYN-HATER ELMO is at it again! “I can’t think of any other explanation for this – what else do Mark Steyn and the nutty chaps at Winnipeg Indy Media have in common? They now share something, though – having run afoul of Mohamed Elmasry and the Canadian Islamic Congress” .. (Breakenridge)


“If you think the slippery slope is a cliche, ask Ezra Levant.  Societies, especially ones founded on the common law, are run on precedent.  This is why the slippery slope is a perfectly valid, though not decisive, argument.  Your opponent can always say, well what’s wrong if we do slide down the slope?  Few statists and collectivists, however, are so brave as to be so obvious.”

~ OUR ONTARIO MEDICAL SLAVES: “To me, there’s a story behind the story here: The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons didn’t just change their policy and decide to force doctors’ hands at a whim. Recall the Canadian Medical Association Journal guest editorial of July 2006. It was co-written by Jocelyn Downie and Sanda Rodgers. Jocelyn Downie had been appointed to advise the interim board of the CMAJ–a lawyer, she was, not a doctor, and a lawyer who advocates for decriminalizing assisted suicide and euthanasia, alongside her pro-abortion views (death all round, but let me not digress).”..

Georgian War

~ THIS IS WHAT democracy looks like: “Georgians take to the streets of Poti to demonstrate against Russian occupation. This is what democracy really looks like. This is really speaking truth to power. And for all the puppet heads — and the Canadian government — who talk and talk about human rights but cannot muster any outrage when confronted with an actual illegal war, actual illegal occupation and actual war crimes, this is what democracy looks like”.. (Ghostly Fleas)

~ UNTO OTHERS.. Christians in Georgia open doors to needy.. (CanCHR)

~ MARCHING IN GEORGIA: There is little doubt that the Georgian President, Mikheil Saakashvili, provided Putin with his long-awaited casus belli when he ordered the shelling of South Ossetia, on August 7th. But Putin’s war, of course, is not about the splendors of South Ossetia, a duchy run by the Russian secret service and criminal gangs. It is a war of demonstration. Putin is demonstrating that he is willing to use force; that he is unwilling to let Georgia and Ukraine enter NATO without exacting a severe price; and that he views the United States as hypocritical, overextended, distracted, and reluctant to make good on its protective assurances to the likes of Georgia”..
