RCMP goon squad

As the Braidwood Inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski at the hands of RCMP Goon Squad members in the Vancouver airport progresses, Canadians continue to witness the spectacle of four more mounties goons dragging their beleaguered police force Goon Squad into further disrepute. Time after time, the four Brave Mounties have testified to staggering brutality, ignorance, stupidity and false bravado while defending themselves against a man with a stapler.

They testified that they failed to recall their training, even though a mere three months had elapsed since that training had occurred.

To further aggravate the situation, RCMP management — is there such a thing? — failed to make policy changes and improvements in the use of tasers, even when directed to do so by a House of Commons committee. Surely the RCMP Management Goons could forsee a time when their policy on taser use would be called into question — couldn’t they? And if they couldn’t, then obviously the goons of management had their heads so far up their red-serge-covered asses as to be completely unrecognizable as actual management.

Day after day at the Braidwood Inquiry, new revelations continue to surface regarding the stupidity of a once-revered police force, such revelations helping to further lead the goon squad mounties to complete and utter disrepute.

Earth Hour and relevance in the grand scheme

Soon there will be much ballyhooing about Earth Hour and what a Great Thing™ switching lights off for an hour will be for Saving The Earth.

From what, I’m not certain.

Earth Hour is an opportunity for the global community to speak in one voice on the issue of climate change, while at the same time coming together in celebration of the one thing every single person on the planet has in common – the planet. -Andy Ridley, Earth Hour Executive Director


Mostly, I think it means that everyone runs around in the dark for an hour. Then, miracle of miracles, the switch is flipped and the power grid falters for a split second.

This to me sounds like one of those school do-gooder 24-hours-of-hunger marathons, where, after the event concludes, the students get rewarded for their valiant effort at starvation imitation with a pizza and beer pop pig-out. Some gullible writer posts the event in the local paper and the entire 24 hours of starvation-imitation hardship and bravado is duly forgotten by one and all.

Does anyone ever tell these people that the millions starving somewhere over there don’t get to slop down the pizza and pop and then forget about the whole thing?

I thought not. Further, I’m certain the cooking fires don’t get dimmed either — unless the cooks have access to the power grid and an internet connection.

Roman Catholic deadbeat advocates abstinence,

Did anyone in the western world notice that he's holding the "unclean" hand?

just like the deadbeat and disgraced King George. Perhaps the two could go on a hand-holding tour of the world, and ask Saudi Clown Prince Abdullah if he would choose to accompany.

And why not? Apparently, anything is possible, especially preventing AIDS with a vow of chastity and a prayer offered up while subserviently kneeling.

Link to article here, where the tired hack known as a news organization calls it as “an issue that divides many Catholics”, rather than the stupidity it really is. MSNBC’s article ends with a reference to a holocaust denier as well. What the hell does that have to do with condoms and AIDS?

I suspect MSNBC is trying to make yet another feeble attempt at being relevant by trying to generate some interest for everybody. By including the holocaust they’ll pump up their Google hits.

(Picture included just because it’s so cute, and includes both a grin and a grimace. No doubt the grimace signals some body or some thing squeezing the shit out of the world economy.)
