leap day

Since I last updated my blog, Whitney Houston passed away.  Yes, she had her issues. Yes, she turned to drugs to deal with her issues.  It's always sad when someone with such talent leaves us.

While the world was mesmerized by Whitney's death, thousands of people were (and still are) dying in Syria.  The Syrian government has taken complete leave of their senses; as a result, the country is suffering.  Where's the aid, world?  Where's the outpouring of aid that we clearly use very selectively?  Is helping a Syrian bad for PR?  If you'd like to help, make a donation to the Red Cross here.

I found out not too long ago Davy Jones passed away from a heart attack this morning.  Man, I used to watch the Monkees all the time as a kid!  Guess I'm really becoming an adult now - I feel like my childhood is slowing drifting away.  Then again, my childhood was mostly shite so I wouldn't want to remember it anyway.

Sure, I'm shocked.  What I'm more shocked about is this robocall nonsense I keep hearing about.  Props to Anonymous for their relentless yet intelligent attacks on our "elected" government.  How is it you are so scared of not winning the election you hire some two-bit company that actually pays their employees to direct voters to the wrong polling stations.  What's worse, these people who received these calls actually believed that Pierre Poutine was telling them the correct information.

Does liberal/left-wing thinking really scare the bejesus out of people? I believe so wholeheartedly.  The Occupy movement is a prime example of this.  Conservatives around the globe are pissing themselves because the masses are rising up.

Listen up, Canada!  We need to rise up and expose the Conservatives for what they really are - petulant scaredy-cats who are afraid of their own shadow.  Clearly they didn't think anyone would find out about their reindeer games during last year's supposed election.  People DIE in other parts of the world for the right to vote.  The Conservative government was banking on the fact that you, Canada, took that right for granted.  Unfortunately, they were right.  Canadians have elected a gun-lovin', thievin', good-for-nothing government that's burned more money than any other government in history.  I said it here first - let's begin the Northern Spring.
