Full of Sound and Fury...

No real or substantial comment on the news today, after all why bother when most of it is just useless water cooler fodder for us ignorant masses.

Now I’m not given to conspiracy theorizing but there are days, today being one of them that lead me to believe that the media and government are in collusion and are actively trying to distract the population, from, and with everything…

Its bread and circuses for the 24/7 newsverment™ team.

Mulroney and Schreiber? $300,000 over ten years ago? Is that really worth the millions it is going to cost Joe and Jill six-pack to run a Public and Parliamentary commission on this non-event? If he stole it let the courts handle it.

Tazers I won’t even get into the logic of that argument again.

There are Taliban “in” over half of Afghanistan’s provinces… Which somehow equates to ‘The Taliban are running half of Afghanistan” at least that is the impression the hyperbadnewsmedia wants to portray.
News flash...
There are racists in all of Canada's provinces, but that hardly means they can or will overthrow the government.

Dear god, don’t get me started on the dollar. Fricken Canadians, we’ve spent the last 30 years complaining about the value of our weak dollar and now you fricken people are whining because its worth too much?

Taliban prisoners are being tortured, by their own governmentin their own prisons and (should you choose to believe the captured Taliban… the same people who hack heads off with rusty bread knives) the Afghani Government is lying to us about it. What’s that? A score of 0.00000001 on my giveahairyratsass meter? Go figure.

So there you have it, no real or substantial comment on what is news of no real or substantial worth. Ironic eh?

Great post. I hear u on the dollar. There are multi-billion dollar companies run by some of the richest men in atlantic Canada complaining and whining to government that they can't compete in this market the way it is now.

Maybe they should have packed away some of the millions in corporate welfare from all levels of government for a rainy day? ;-)

Definitely no sympathy from NBT.
