Andrew Winchester: The Epitome of Stupid People with Guns

Andrew-Winchester-the-epitome-of-stupid-PFTR

Andrew-Winchester-the-epitome-of-stupid-PFTR

Andrew Winchester is a stupid person.

I call Andrew Winchester a stupid person because only an idiot would believe handing over 47 handguns, all legally purchased and registered to him, to an unlicensed individual wouldn’t have severe consequences. You would think being paid $900 per purchase over and above the cost of the guns and ammunition just might be a clue something is not quite legal.

Not Andrew Winchester.

In order to work for his previous employer, Garda Security, he took the Canadian Firearms Safety Course for both non-restricted and restricted firearms. He passed the course, applied for and was issued a Canadian firearms license.

He then purchased 47 handguns over a 5-month period and re-sold them to a friend of his. His friend did not have a firearms license. Selling 47 handguns to his unlicensed friend is a criminal offense.

The Criminal Code of Canada is quite clear about the transfer of handguns or as the law refers to them, restricted firearms.

Section 23.2 (1) A person may transfer a prohibited firearm or a restricted firearm if, at the time of the transfer,
(a) the transferee holds a licence authorizing the transferee to acquire and possess that kind of firearm;
(b) the transferor has no reason to believe that the transferee is not authorized to acquire and possess that kind of firearm;
(c) the transferor informs the Registrar of the transfer;
(d) if the transferee is an individual, the transferor informs a chief firearms officer of the transfer and obtains the authorization of the chief firearms officer for the transfer;
(e) a new registration certificate for the firearm is issued in accordance with this Act; and
(f) the prescribed conditions are met.

As you can see above, Andrew Winchester broke every single part of this section of law.

From the judgment in R. v. Andrew Winchester, 2014 ONSC 2591:

[17] There are a number of aggravating circumstances in this case, most of which are self-evident. First, Mr. Winchester used his firearms licence to purchase and then transfer forty-three handguns to another person, his presumed friend, Nour Marakah. Second, Mr. Winchester transferred these handguns knowing that Mr. Marakah would, in turn, be providing them to another person. It must have at least crossed Mr. Winchester’s mind that these were not guns that were being acquired for lawful or innocent purposes. If that thought did not cross Mr. Winchester’s mind, it ought to have. Third, Mr. Winchester undertook these purchases with an assurance from Mr. Marakah that the firearms would not be traceable back to him. This was yet a further reason that should have caused Mr. Winchester to question what was, in reality, going on. It also should have caused him to rethink his participation in this venture.

Absolutely.

It is unfortunate that Andrew Winchesters two sons will be without their father for the next six years (He received 2.5 years credit for time served before his trial), but such is the high price of stupidity.

Mr. Winchester is, however, fortunate Superior Court Justice Ian Nordheimer laughed at Crown’s retarded argument that his lack of a prior criminal record should be viewed as an “aggravating circumstance” at sentencing.

[20] Finally on this point, the Crown submits that another aggravating circumstance is Mr. Winchester’s lack of a criminal record. The Crown’s reasoning is that it was the lack of a criminal record that allowed Mr. Winchester to obtain a firearms licence that in turn allowed him to purchase these handguns. I do not accept that reasoning. It is well-established that the lack of a criminal record is a mitigating factor not an aggravating one. [..] I do not know of any authority, and none was cited to me, that has ever held that in a situation, such as the one here, the lack of a criminal record can be transformed from a positive factor into a negative one.

At the end of the day, as the court judgment makes clear, Andrew Winchester had a very misplaced sense of loyalty and obligation to his high school friend Nour Marakah. That sense of loyalty and obligation cost Andrew Winchester his freedom, his fiance, his job and his sons.

I doubt Andrew Winchester views the $15,000 he received as payment for purchasing the handguns was worth it as he sits in a federal prison cell.

He would be correct.

Profound Stupidity Has Consequences (Imagine That!)

Stupidity-Has-Consequences-PFTR

Human beings are amazing creatures.  We’re creative, astounding beings most of the time.  However, there are times when the Gene Pool needs cleaning and in those moments our genetic code’s self-correcting mechanism is extremely powerful.

Take, for example, the case of an unnamed Michigan man who decided to teach his girlfriend all about firearm safety.  He told her all three handguns were clear and safe and then proceeded to prove this to her by pointing the gun at his head and pulling the trigger.

Unfortunately the now deceased man hadn’t bothered to actually check for himself that all three firearms were in fact cleared.

After successfully pulling the trigger on two firearms and hearing the expected “click” of a hammer falling on an empty chamber, the third trigger pull resulted in his brains splattering all over the wall behind him.

The third handgun was loaded.

From the article on wxyz.com:

The woman tells police her boyfriend had been drinking most of the day before showing her how to use his three handguns and demonstrating they were safe when empty.

Police say he placed the first two guns to his head and pulled the triggers once each, but the third gun fired. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Terrorists Among Us

The-True-Face-of-Stanley-Cup-Rioter-Alicia-Price

The-True-Face-of-Stanley-Cup-Rioter-Alicia-Price

Alicia Price looks like a nice girl. She’s wearing a T-shirt with the picture of a bear carrying a sign saying ‘Free Hugs.”

Alicia Price - June 15, 2011Nice girl or just another criminal?

Alicia Price – June 15, 2011
Nice girl or just another criminal?

Moments later there is a video sequence of her taking a cigarette lighter and setting a police car on fire (starting at 7:35). She’s pleaded not guilty and her case will come to trial 9/13/2013; months from now.

She’s not alone, of course; the Vancouver Sun has a database where you can scroll through the hundreds of charges arising from the Stanley Cup riot of 2011.

There are several points I’d like to make about those charged and, more importantly, the tens of thousands of rioters who were not charged and will never face any public sanction for breaking the law, trashing the streets, stealing private property, torching private cars and attacking the police that day in June two years ago.

The first is that these were not a band of organized agitators from out of province or out of country; these were our kids. Otherwise passive couch potatoes, video game players and smart phone texters became a raging mob of anti-social, anti-capitalist, anti-democratic maniacs. Young people, largely from the suburbs, went on a crazed rampage that went on for hours and hours.

The second point is that they didn’t confine their assaults to private property and the police; they also attacked individuals who tried to intervene, notably one Robert Mackay who tried to prevent rioters from entering the Bay and was assaulted by 15 people.

Forget the phrase ‘Stanley Cup riot.’ It wasn’t over a hockey game, a cup or anything else. This was a riot of pure nihilistic anarchy; a physical repudiation of not just capitalism, but of society, order, individual rights, private property, laws, and most notably of their parents. Our young people don’t just ignore their parents, they despise us and our entire system. They have become cultural Marxists and anarchists, ready and willing to tear society down at the slightest provocation.

In attempting to do so, they made a point that has been made by revolutionaries time and again around the world; that when the social contract breaks down at its core, it cannot be propped up for long by the police; not that the Vancouver police did much propping up because they were, presumably, under orders not to injure much less arrest the rioters.

In earlier days, the army would have been called out, the Riot Act read and the rioters shot until they dispersed. The conscription riot in Montreal in 1917 is a case in point. Well, we won’t see that again. There is no government in Canada, no Mayor, no Army commander, prepared to fire on rioters in Canada these days and yet there are tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of young people ready to shred every aspect of modern Western society.

Not that they need to riot. They can wreck society by just doing more of what they do the rest of the time: not getting married, not having children, not voting, not going to church and not taking part in civic life.

Are they terrorists? Perhaps not by the conventional definition; but they certainly terrify me.

A Canada passed on to childless, self-centered, nihilists who believe in open borders, climate change, the ‘evils’ of GM food, oil sands, tankers, fracking, nuclear energy and who think Islam is ‘cool’ should terrify all of us.

Happy End of the World Day! (At least according to those dead Mayans…)

Happy-End-of-the-World-Day

Happy-End-of-the-World-Day

Well, today is the day.

The End Of The World!!!

Good thing too, because if it doesn’t I’m in big trouble for not buying my wife any Christmas presents!

Seriously though… the end of the world? All because some old dead guys gave up counting?

Are people really this naive?

Sadly, the answer to that is a resounding YES!

To combat the silly people even NASA put up a page titled “2012 and Beyond: Why The World Won’t End” that contains a series of explanations on why it will be life as normal on December 22 and beyond. Opening that page, NASA states:

Dec. 21, 2012, won’t be the end of the world as we know, however, it will be another winter solstice.

How incredibly dull.

Just another Winter Solstice? Where’s the drama in that?

I guess the prize for drama will go to those nutbar French people. A group of French wingnuts will travel to the top of the mountain where they believe aliens will come and sweep them away to safety.

In the French Pyrenees the mayor of Bugarach, population 179, has attempted to prevent pandemonium by banning UFO watchers and light aircraft from the flat topped mount Pic de Bugarach.

Umm… yeah… okay. Maybe they ought to simply stop drinking the Kool-Aid instead.

One enterprising person created http://world-end-party.com/ hoping to capitalize on the hysteria and silliness… but if you want to find out about their list of End-of-the-World parties you need to sign up to their site. After all, there’s no point in letting the End of the World get in the way of a good marketing opportunity, right? 🙂

And if you want to sail off into the great unknown as the world ends, how about a Cruise to the End of the World? The upside to this cruise is that if the world actually survives the end of the Mayan Calendar, you’ll also be supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Now that’s a cause worth supporting whether the world comes to an end or not.

French President Francois Hollande says Homework is a Crime Against Humanity?

Ban-Homework-It's-for-the-Children

Ban-Homework-It's-for-the-Children

Some days I really don’t comprehend politicians.

I really don’t.

French-President-Francois-Hollande-is-a-moron-248x250Take, for instance, Chief Moron and French President Francois Hollande. This dingbat is on a rampage to outlaw homework on the basis that it discriminates against the families of the “non-wealthy”.

In what alternate universe?

This mental giant doesn’t have the common sense God gave a gnat, that much is clear.

“When it comes to homework, the President said it should be done during school hours rather than at home, in order to establish equal opportunities,” said one French Embassy official.

President Francois Hollande believes that homework is a burden on lower-income families because those parents aren’t in a financial position to spend more time with their kids.

To be blunt, that’s nothing but a pile of bovine excrement.

Tad Cronn put it best when he wrote in his column “Socialism in Action: No More Homework for Servants of the State“:

Like all liberals, Hollande boils it down to “fairness.” Apparently, some students’ homes are better than others’, so all learning needs to take place at school, where the learnin’ is equally poor quality.

Jonathan Turley also makes an excellent point when he writes:

There are good reasons to question the utility of homework and the loss of free time for our children. I happen to believe strongly in homework but I share the concern over the loss of time for our kids to simply relax and be kids.

However, the suggestion that homework is yet another socio-economic unfairness is wrong in my view. Plenty of working class parents spend time with their kids on homework. Indeed, there is a well-based view of many immigrant and working-class families pushing their children harder to excel in schools.

If parents aren’t spending time with their kids, that’s not an issue with homework, that’s an issue with lousy parenting. It’s an issue with what priorities the parents place on their lives and the lives of their kids.

Outlawing homework isn’t going to change anything except, most likely, make kids stupider. Is that really what we want?

I’ve known plenty of single and two-parent families who, while they may struggle financially, place the well-being of their children at the very top of their priority list. If it’s a choice between spending time with their child to help her figure out her math homework or going out for the night with friends, those parents choose their kids.

Is that a sacrifice? Absolutely. It’s called being a parent.

Much to the chagrin of those who believe the Glorious Nanny State has the responsibility to do everything for everybody, being a parent means you have to, to a great extent, give up your life for the betterment of your child.

Oddly enough, those parents who make the choice of child over their own selfish interests don’t even see it as a sacrifice. They see it as the only natural and obvious choice to make.

Imagine that.

Next is the purpose of homework.

Homework is every bit as much about the actual work being done as it is about teaching a solid work ethic. It’s about teaching a person to be responsible for themselves and their commitments. It’s about personal responsibility, a notion sadly lacking in our current age.

Now I realize this flies in the face of what most “progressives” would have us believe, since they don’t believe in things as passé as actually having a work ethic, but that doesn’t make it any less true.

When I went to high school I had a minimum of 2 hours of homework every night. Did I like it? Of course not. No kid likes homework. That’s not the point. Whether I liked it or not was not relevant and doing that homework taught me one very important lesson.

If something needs to be done, do it now. Don’t procrastinate.

It takes far less time to do the work than it does to bitch about doing the work.

Believe it or not, that’s an important lesson for any kid to learn.

Ah, the brave new world of political correctness…where even saying “husband and wife” is verboten

durham-district-school-board

It’s no wonder our society is in such a mess… we’ve got so-called educators (I call them morons) who believe that simply saying “husband and wife” is a phrase that must be avoided at all costs or the sky will fall.

These particular morons hide under rocks at the Durham District School Board and spend their time, paid for by the rest of us of course, churning out 20-page pieces of garbage such as the “Guidelines for Inclusive Language.”

Somehow they manage to put all of the following phrases on the title page of their [alleged] masterpiece…

  • Ensure Openness, Accountability and Safety
  • Implement Equitable Principles and Practices
  • Promote Student Achievement and Discovery
  • Success in learning to meet the challenges of the future

Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?

I am, however, a little confused how you can “promote student achievement and discovery” when you’re busy rewriting every textbook known to man to meet your asinine guidelines, but I’m sure since the Durham District School Board is not paying for it with their own money it won’t be a problem.  Just increase school taxes some more.  Nobody will mind.

As for the poor students, I’m not sure how they will have time to learn how to meet any “challenges of the future” when they’ve got the latest manual for “politicallycorrect language” to memorize so as not to offend any “persons from Korea” or the like.

See if you can make it through this opening statement without gagging:

Guiding Principles of This Document

The Principle of Inclusion acknowledges the concept that society is not homogeneous and reinforces the perception of diversity as an opportunity rather than an obstacle. It requires the recognition that ideas and practices based on the norms of the dominant culture or society can result in experiences of exclusion and discrimination for people of diverse backgrounds. An inclusive organization not only recognizes the difference, but embraces diversity. Inclusive Language acknowledges the value of an individual and their worth in society as a whole.

Seriously, you’ve got to read this piece of trash for yourself.

It’s high time we fired all the education system bureaucrats and used their wages to hire teachers instead.  You know… the people who actually teach kids something useful?

Don’t get me wrong.  I have no issue with diversity.

Canada and America alike are the nations they are because we welcomed people from around the world with open arms.  But back when we were doing that while using some common sense, it was recognized by both immigrant (Crap! Now I’m in trouble!  I was supposed to say “Newcomer” instead) and Canadian understood the responsibility that came along with life in their new home.

Don’t even get me started on the phrase “foreign language”, which for some unstated reason is now uncouth.  Maybe I’m supposed to say “Newcomer language”?  It’s hard to know… the guide is less than sensible on these things.

As usual, it’s okay to insult Christianity along the way, but don’t you dare call someone “Indian” or Eskimo”.  That’s hurtful and demeaning, but forcing everyone to believe that “The earth” is the source of life and not God… well, let’s not go there or we’ll be off to the Human Rights Tribunal for another re-education session at the hands of the Politically Correct Thought Police.

It’s Adam Vaughn’s Wet Dream Come True! Washington, DC, charges Veteran for Possession of Unregistered Ammunition

Toronto City Councillor and all-around idiot Adam Vaughn must be just about wetting himself at the thought of being able to send decent Canadians to prison for the heinous “crime” of owning a legal product, namely ammunition.

No doubt Vaughn’s inspiration for his blatantly stupid bylaw proposal to outlaw ammunition in Toronto comes from that great bastion of stupid gun laws, Washington, DC.  There officials have managed to screw things up so badly they’ve charged former Army Specialist Adam Meckler for the “crime” of having “unregistered ammunition”.

Adam Meckler isn’t some lunatic wanting to kill anyone.  He’s a veteran who has served his nation faithfully in both Afghanistan and Iraq.  How is he repaid for that good and faithful service?  He’s treated like a criminal in his own country.

It’s as disgusting as it is absurd.

To quote Emily Miller’s column in the Washington Times:

There is no legitimate public safety reason for criminalizing ammunition possession. It only serves to punish law-abiding gun owners doing normal activities, such as what happened to Spc. Meckler.

Meckler did not have a firearm, just some spare rounds of ammunition left over from a recent trip to the range.  He was attempting to provide Veterans Affairs with information they required about his medical records when he was treated as though he was about to detonate a bomb inside the White House!

“I was thinking, what is in my bag? I thought, there is no way it’s a gun, all my guns are locked up. I’d made sure there were no knives in the bag.”

Naturally his explanation of what had happened fell on deaf ears.  Nobody cared.

Murderer’s mother blames Shawn Bryan’s shooting victim, Charlene Mitchell, for son’s crimes

eldene-king

I know grief can do strange things to people.  I also know losing a son, no matter the circumstances, is horrendously difficult.  There is a line that one should never cross, however, simply because it is both tacky and moronic to blame the shooting victim for the crimes of the lunatic who shot her.

As bizarre is it seems to me, however, that’s precisely what Shawn Bryan’s mother is doing.

In what can only be described as a “stupid human trick”, Eldene King is blaming Charlene Mitchell for her son’s insane actions that left Mitchell fighting for her life in hospital and veteran police officer Kevin Ambrose dead.

Eldene King is grieving.  I get that.  But she’s out to lunch if she thinks she’s going to get any sympathy from me for the fact that her son is dead.  Not when she wants to blame the mother of her grandchild for the murderous actions of her own son.

Shawn Bryan was a corrections officer at New York’s Rikers’s Island facility.  Being a good little coward, he shot and killed himself after first murdering Springfield Police Department Officer Kevin Ambrose and shooting his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Charlene Mitchell.

Nobody held a gun to his head and forced Shawn Bryan to murder anyone.  He stupidly chose to do that all on his own.  That his mother hasn’t the decency to think of anyone but herself is rather disgusting to me.

Kevin Ambrose has a family that now has to figure out how to live without him.  Does the self-absorbed and self-delusional Eldene King have anything to say to them?

Nope, not a word.  All she can do is blame the world for the fact that her son was a murderous nutbar who, like all good cowards, preferred to kill himself rather than face the consequences of his heinous actions. (more…)

Selfish Spoiled Brats steal money from 9-year-old Girl Scout, say they’re entitled to it

spoiled-brat-july_pasuy_0

Hello there….it’s me again…. Don Laird….

This video is about 4 years old but illustrates perfectly, the logic instilled in our children by a very sick educational system, leftist government and its social engineering and finally, by criminally indifferent and morally, intellectually bankrupt parents….

Listen to these two little pieces of work and be sickened to your stomach…..all whilst fighting the urge to slap them senseless…….

The reality is this sort of psychopathy has gown exponentially worse in the West………..evidence of this can found in the recent liberal leftist assertions made to mitigate the monstrous crimes of Luka Magnotta, the Gay Porn Star/Butcher: apparently he was “bullied” as a child hence his need to carve up his gay lover and mail body parts to Canadian Members of Parliament……….

It can be found in courtrooms wearing Armani (thankfully no relation to blog owner Christopher di Armani!) suits and impassive faces as their crimes of mass murder are read aloud to an audience of agents with book and movie deals, fawning media and melodrama junkies………… (more…)

NBC shows glimmer of common sense; fires reporters who manufactured Zimmerman 911 transcripts

LilliaLuciano.jpg

I was actually shocked to come across a story about how the NBC network has fired three [alleged] reporters for doctoring and/or fabricating the transcript of George Zimmerman’s 911 call after the shooting of Treyvon Martin.

Lillia-Luciano Lillia Luciano, pictured here, is the third person fired for attempting to manufacture a story, instead of doing their job: reporting the news.

The first to get the axe was an unnamed NBC producer responsible for doctoring the 911 tape, which NBC insiders have attempted to characterize as a “mistake”, not a deliberate attempt to mislead the public.

That’s a nice theory, but what else can you call editing the 911 call to make it look like George Zimmerman is the one who brought up race when he did not?  That is a deliberate and calculated altering of the facts to fit a preconceived version of events.

Most people would call it lying.

Here is what Lillia Luciano wrote, followed by the truth:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.
Dispatcher: Are you following him?
Zimmerman: Yeah.
Dispatcher: Okay, we don’t need you to do that.

But here’s how George Zimmerman’s 911 call really happened:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he white, black, or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

The courageous producer who manufactured the lie and the two reporters who fabricated the 911 call transcript to fit their preconceived notion of what went on all need to go back to kindergarten to learn what right and wrong mean, since they all clearly missed that lesson.

Occupy Protestors show just how classless they really are

Occupy-protester-007

The so-called “occupy” protestors in Providence, Rhode Island showed the world just how classless they are.  I’m really not surprised.  The entire “occupy” movement has been pretty much about whining about how the world hasn’t given these self-absorbed, selfish little crybabies enough to satisfy their sense of entitlement.

The entitled ones in Providence, for example, were about to have their camp shut down by city officials when the Roman Catholic Church stepped in.

Imagine that… a church sticking up for a bunch of whiny little crybabies who are about to be kicked out of an illegal camp.  You’d think these folks would be grateful, right?

Not these unwashed and smelly protestors, as they call themselves… They were demanding the City of Providence open up a daytime homeless shelter for the winter.  The City said no.

The protestors had been occupying Burnside Park since October 15, 2011, making a mockery of law and order as well as a garbage dump out of the park.  You know, just like every other “occupy” camp across North America.

Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin met with City officials to come to some sort of agreement on having the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence open a daytime shelter at their Emmanuel House facility, which already operates and emergency shelter out of that location.

The protestors immediately claimed victory, of course.

“I consider this a victory for Occupy Providence standing up for the most disenfranchised people that don’t have many people standing up for them,” protester Robert Malin said. “It shows that with pressure from people, a government can be made to move.”

Apparently he missed the point that it was the Roman Catholic Church that was making this happen, not the city, but that’s okay.

In a statement Monday night, Mayor Angel Taveras thanked the diocese and Bishop Thomas Tobin and city officials who worked for a solution.

“This would not have happened without the Diocese of Providence’s involvement and willingness to help in this effort, and I am extremely grateful to Bishop Tobin,” Taveras said.

So now that the protestors are getting what they claim they want, it’s time to kick sand in the faces of the very people giving it to them.

Here’s an excerpt from BusinessInsider.com:

The city of Providence itself had rejected the Occupier’s demands to provide the shelter and was preparing to evict the Occupiers from their encampment at Burnside park. But the Church stepped in to open the shelter and the Occupiers declared victory.

Apparently they don’t dwell on the meaning of gratitude. The very next day they set out to Occupy the pro-life rally.

This sort of behaviour is typical for folks who believe they are entitled to the contents of everyone else’s wallets… isn’t it?  Take everything they say they want, and then show just how ungrateful they are for having received it.

Only it wasn’t sand kicked in the faces of the Mayor or the Bishop, it was condoms tossed in the faces of Catholic school girls.

How utterly classless.

They claimed, naturally, the condoms were unused, as if that somehow transformed their disgusting actions into some sort of saintly act.

The Pro-Life Rally had been scheduled for some time.  The Occupy protestors obviously believe they can protest anything and everything, including a baby’s right to be born instead of being murdered inside its mother’s womb.

Fair enough.  But as someone recently said to me,

“I absolutely agree that it’s the woman’s right to choose, but the choice is not between killing her unborn baby or not, but a choice between closing her legs nine months earlier or not.”

That said, back to the events at hand…

Barth Bracy, executive director of Rhode Island Right to Life, said the following:

Bracy had an inkling something was up in the nights before the demonstration when the Facebook page for the Rhode Island Right to Life was continually being defaced. But as the pro-lifers were giving their speeches in the statehouse, the Occupiers began filing in, and Bracy noticed that they were very well organized in their tactics

“[The Occupiers] started spreading themselves out – they didn’t do anything until all of them got through the security checkpoint. They brought their cardboard signs. They don’t push you. They just stand so close they make you feel uncomfortable because they smell so bad.”

A couple of women from Occupy started dancing in front of the podium the pro-lifers were using. The Occupiers started whistling, heckling, and chanting.

Bracy was scheduled to give the last address to the crowd. “I got about twenty-five percent through my speech before I couldn’t even hear myself.” Bracy decided that at this point it was futile to continue. So he invited Fr. Bernard Healy to give a closing prayer.

Healy was interrupted and shouted down. “And that’s when the condoms started coming down,” Bracy said,  before rushing to tell us that they were “unused.”

“It really was mayhem, is what it was,” Bracy said.

Bracy had formerly considered himself sympathetic to the Occupy movement. “I remember the Savings and Loans scandals. People went to jail. I thought Occupy Wall Street was about that. Having investigations. But this is the first time they are speaking clearly about an issue and they’re standing up for abortion and using blackshirt tactics,” Bracy said, referring to Moussilini’s early and racous fascist movement.

Apparently this shows that for at least some Occupy groups, there are other pressing issues beyond inequality in America.

Some connected to the Occupy Providence movement claim that it was just outsiders who agitated this, but the Occupy Providence discussion group shows the motion to take this action. And the Occupy Providence Facebook page shows pictures celebrating the protest.

Any sympathy I may have had for the occupy protests and their mission (whatever it was!), I sure don’t any more.

These classless pigs not only treat young women disgustingly by tossing condoms into their faces, they bite the very hand who, just the day before, had stepped in to give them exactly what they said they wanted, somewhere warm to hang out for the winter.

I hope the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence changes their mind and leaves these pathetic jerks outside in the cold.

Maybe a few more months of freezing their butts off will teach these classless swine some manners.

I know… I know… That’s nothing but wishful thinking on my part.

Newsflash PETA: Human Beings are more important than animals. Deal with it.

petaprovingnotallhumanshavebrains.jpg

PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is a group of animal-loving yahoos who believe that animals are more important than people.  They recently announced yet another attention-grabbing publicity stunt that proves just how ludicrous these people are.

PETA is willing to abuse any program or any person if it will advance PETA’s anti-human agenda.  Their latest show of stupidity comes at the expense of human beings killed on the highways of Illinois, in particular a law passed in honour of Tina Ball, a mother of seven who was killed by a drunk driver.

You see, in October of 2011 a truck overturned on Interstate 74, killing 4 cows inside the truck.  A couple more cows escaped the overturned vehicle and were struck by oncoming traffic.

peta-proving-not-all-humans-have-brainsAs a result of the loss of bovine life, PETA wants to erect signs on the highway chastising drivers and memorializing the dead cattle.

No,I’m not making this garbage up.  I’ve got a good imagination, but even I can’t concoct this sort of asinine tripe.

I’ve got an idea for a highway sign…

“PETA: Proving Not All Humans Have Brains”

The lack-of-brains-trust (it’s sure no brain trust!) at PETA have always considered human beings nothing more than a blight on the planet that must be obliterated.

Here’s a thought: how about PETA lead by example and just kill themselves en masse.  If nothing else it will enrich the quality of the gene pool. Anyone who blatantly hates the human race as much as PETA does really shouldn’t be bothering the rest of us anyway, right?

I mean really… how can you take someone seriously who makes this claim:

“We’re fighting for the cows that died.”

What???

DEA Agent Lee Paige loses case centering around his shooting himself during a gun safety demonstration

dea-agent-lee-paige-negligent-discharge

Lee Paige, the DEA’s poster-boy for how NOT to handle a firearm, is apparently still a Drug Enfrocement Agency (DEA) special agent stationed in Orlando, Florida, according to a report found online.

You may recall the 2004 video of DEA Special Agent Lee Paige shooting himself in the leg mere seconds after claiming

“I’m the only one in this room professional enough, that I know of, to carry this Glock 40.” 

Needless to say, the video (see below) went viral and because DEA Special Agent Paige’s gross stupidity and arrogance was captured on video, it ended his undercover career.

It should have ended his entire career, but federal agents are, it seems, an endangered species so he was protected at all costs, including common sense.

I had to laugh when I stumbled on the news report of DEA Special Agent Paige’s court follies because I was searching for this video just a couple of days ago to include here on the site as an example of what happens when arrogance gets in the way of firearm safety.

I guess he was trying to salvage some of his lost dignity when he sued his employer for releasing the video to the public.  The thing is, the video wasn’t created by anyone in the DEA. It was created by one of the parents of a student in the class.

Such trivialities were of no concern, of course, since the DEA has much deeper pockets, right?

He even went on television to try his case in the court of public opinion (video below) , but I don’t think that gained much traction.

When cops can’t be bothered to do the jobs they’re paid to do, they ask for civilian volunteers?

FrederictonPoliceChiefBarryMacKnight.jpg

What does the Fredericton Police Force do when it can’t be bothered to do the job the citizens of Fredericton PAY them to do?  The go have coffee and ask for civilian volunteers to do the job for them.

Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration… I’m sure they aren’t going for coffee, but you get the point, right?

Fredericton Police Chief Barry MacKnight Fredericton Police Chief Barry MacKnight, it would seem, has his brain stuffed somewhere it shouldn’t be and it’s in desperate need of oxygen.

While it is true that the RCMP has its Auxiliary Constable program, where civilians get a little training and help out with routine (but unconstitutional) police tasks like traffic stops, at least they have a real cop standing there beside them to make sure the auxiliary constable doesn’t screw up too badly.

Yes, I realize the Supreme Court of Canada has decreed that police are within their rights to stop vehicles and check to make sure drivers are sober, but that devolved into routine and unconstitutional searches of vehicles a LONG time ago.  (Why else is the policeman shining his flashlight everywhere inside your vehicle if he’s not performing a visual search?)

What the Fredericton Chief is proposing is something quite different.  He wants to train volunteers to run police radar equipment and record all the information so police can issue speeding tickets, all while the police are nowhere to be found.

Am I the only one who sees something horribly wrong with this whole idea?

Occupy Vancouver’s drug overdoses and deaths are no big deal according to event spokescritters

occupy-vancouver-drug-overdose6

The depths of human stupidity never cease to amaze me, and the yahoos currently making Vancouver’s Art Gallery site look like a refugee camp are no exception.  The double-speak coming from some of these folks is truly amazing.

As has been widely reported, there has been one drug overdose that almost killed an American man and it is believed a second overdose is the cause of death for a young 23-year-old Victoria woman, Ashlie Gough, who was found dead in her tent.

Event organizers, of course, claim the camp is drug-free.

Really?

Apparently drug-free just doesn’t mean what it used to, but that really shouldn’t surprise me.

The folks currently making a mess of the Art Gallery lawns are, of course, not the kind of folks who will actually pay to clean up any of the mess they’ve created.  They prefer to say it is their “right” to be there and along with it, their “right” to have someone else pick up the tab for their “lifestyle choice”.

I remember when the Clayoquot Sound protests were going on many years ago… Everyone was asking me if I was going. I laughed at them for the simple reason that I had a job and rent to pay…

The only people that I knew who could afford the time to go to Clayoquot Sound to protest were the guys and gals on welfare.  Anyone with a job (and who wanted to keep that job) wasn’t going anywhere…

I doubt the current Occupy Vancouver protestors are much different.  Who else can afford all the time just sitting around demanding someone else foot the tab for everything?  Certainly it’s not the folks with jobs and bills to pay.

They’re too busy… well… working to earn the money that will be stolen from their paychecks by government in order to fund all these Occupy Protestors’ welfare checks.

Edible Canada Restaurant bans men from peeing while standing up. Gotta love the Loony Left Coast!

no-peeing-standing-up

Hello Christopher….

A Vancouver restaurant, Edible Canada, bans men from peeing standing up……  The restaurant, located on Vancouver’s trendy Granville Island, is the latest to issue stupid edicts to its patrons…..

You can’t make this stuff up…..and wait!!!!……It gets better…….not only are men banned from peeing standing up…..but urination and defecation at Edible Canada is now a “community” activity. Men and women now must share communal bathrooms. Gone is the ability for women to privately interact with daughters, gone is the privacy for women and little girls.

I contacted Edible Canada at their corporate office in Vancouver and spoke to an “Erin”.  The owner, a Mr. Eric Pateman wasn’t available for comment. Mr. Pateman has decided that the best way to garner a little free advertising and publicity for his restaurant, Edible Canada, is to use women and young girls as guinea pigs in his little social experiment.

During my conversation with Erin as she spoke on behalf of Edible Canada, Erin couldn’t stop laughing while she spoke in glowing terms about the efforts of Edible Canada to turn a very private activity into a “community affair“.

I left my contact information with Erin, and when she heard I was from Alberta, you could almost hear the gag reflex in her voice. Apparently my place of residence, Alberta, indicates a prima facie inability to “understand” the new reality as it relates to the privacy required by young girls and women.

The reality for Edible Canada is that Eric Pateman, feeling avant garde, has placed women and children in a precarious position.

Boys will be Boys, and sometimes that gets them in big trouble

plasticgun

As the old saying goes, “Boys will be Boys”, and often that’s what we say when some kids make stupid but non-fatal mistakes.  Sometimes though, boys get themselves into hot water because they just don’t think things through.

That’s exactly the case in Campbell River, where three boys, ages 13, 15 and 16 were carrying their pellet guns down the road.

That in and of itself is not a crime.

Pellet guns are NOT illegal, and nor should they be.  They come from the manufacturer with a bright orange muzzle so it’s plain to everyone within sight that it’s just a toy.

But boys being what they are sometimes think they know best, as in the case of these three.  They painted the bright orange pieces black.  Still not a crime.  Just kinda of stupid in today’s world of teen angst mixed with school shootings…

The public doesn’t have the tolerance for boyhood fun and games like it did 20 or 30 years ago.

The problems start when concerned citizens see what they believe to be real firearms being toted down the road by kids.  They do what many concerned citizens would do: they call the police and report what they’ve seen.

And that’s when these Campbell River boys found themselves in a LOT of hot water.
