Good one Rondi.

It is confusing to gaze into that toilet bowl called Ontario. Inconsistancy is the norm. It's government by jerk and twitch.

Here's another swipe at the big crazy.

In NYC, a radical Black Muslim group wanted to hold a rally in Harlem. Mayor Giuliani was opposed to it, but agreed to let them hold it provided it was over at a certain time. I'm sure that this group expected a slow and easy effort, but at exactly that moment, over a thousand cops in riot gear moved in to disperse the crowd.

In this case, Giuliani underpromised what he intended, yet overdelivered on the response. Sure he was criticized by the usual people like Al Sharpton, but he was also praised by many for his decisive handling of the event.

If only an Ontarian could be as decisive. Unfortunately, not a single person in that entire place has any guts at all. Well, maybe Mike Harris did - and you people turfed him out and replaced him with the Great McGuinty. Don't get me started on that idiot mayor in Tronna, or that old racist mayor in Missisucka.

No wonder big labor and the so-called "anti-poverty" movement play you people for suckers. It may also explain why you support Chretien/Martin - your only sense of self is opposing the US, and you support anyone who goes against them (so long as they don't interrupt the trade on which you depend). Yet when Harper tries to warm up to the US - a sensible and prudent policy which has yielded far more benefits than liabilities - you stab him in the back. Pathetic excuse for a society. No wonder you people turn your backs when children are dying in your streets - just don't care unless they're white.

Déjà vu! In 1990, in Kanesatake, Quebec in 1990, aka the Oka Crisis. Then Quebec Minister of Native Affairs, John Ciaccia is seen negotiating with natives hinding their faces behind scarves like thugs and bandits. What a great day for democracy and the rule of law. Let us hope it doesn't go as far.

Muslims set Spain blazes destroy Stone Age art

August 11, 2006

Firefighters spray water on a forest fire in Lamastredo, north-west Spain.

MADRID, Spain (AP) -- Priceless art dating from the Stone Age has been damaged in forest fires -- some deliberately set -- in northwest Spain, officials said Friday.

Color paintings and carvings on rocks -- known as petroglyphs -- of wildlife and geometric patterns dating some 4,000 years, has been charred and blackened in fires in Campo Lameiro and Cotobade in northwestern Galicia, said local government spokeswoman Iria Mendez.

It is too early to determine if some of the art, considered national treasures, have been damaged beyond repair, Mendez said.

Hundreds of fires have raged through the heavily wooded northwestern corner of Spain in the last week, killing wildlife and roasting a countryside containing rare remains of early human habitation, such as the paintings.

Police have arrested 15 people this month -- nine in the last four days -- on suspicion of starting many of the fires.

Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba visited areas around Santiago de Compostela Friday and said some of the outbreaks were clearly planned.

"When one examines what is happening and talks to experts and police officers, one arrives at the conclusion that these are strategic fires planned with malicious intent," he said.

Emergency services fighting 124 fires, 87 of which were out of control Friday, include firefighting aircraft from France and Italy as well as 70 specialist firefighters from Portugal, the regional government said in a statement.

Spain is to deploy 200 elite army engineers to help battle the flames.

Several fires threatened the outskirts of the city of Ourense, forcing the evacuation of dozens of residents overnight.

Wildfires, which raged through the week, have charred more than 24,710 acres of forest and scrubland, mainly between the port city of Vigo and the regional capital of Santiago de Compostela, an area known for its fjordlike sea inlets.

Aux contraire, Zeb ... they don't care when whitey bites the big one, Tranna is no longer a white city.

It's kinda beige or maybe chocolatey and there's a lot of gingham around too but moslty worn on the sweaty heads of muslims who also hate whitey.

Whitey is under attack as never before on this planet. I know that most of the brown people in the world are also caucaisian, but they hate whitey too.

However, I am sure that many of those brown people will make an effort to keep enough of us around to produce beautiful white women so they can some really attractive exhotic whores for their pleasure. This is the only think whitey has to offer that they are interested other than our technology which are too stupid to invent for themselves.

Duke: that is a very disturbing view of the present.

Fortunately it is all the fault of white Ontario. You people needed more labor to do the worst jobs so you were forced to import non-whites into Ontario. The immigrants included Muslims, but they were all non-white, and hence subject to discrimination. "Multiculuralism" was a ploy to lure immigrants to Canada, but ultimately it was an empty promise. Sure they had their religion and culture (they would have had it anyway) but it meant working the jobs deemed unworthy of whites. Don't bother denying such a system exists, because I have seen it with my own eyes.

So, in essence, the threat of Islamofascism in Canada was brought by Ontario on itself. They're striking back for years of bad jobs, low pay, and racism. I can't say I blame them. Call this a monkey for your back. If the white race is under attack, it provided the motive and provocations. You people were lucky when the Toronto 18 were caught; might not be so lucky next time. I'm just glad that I can enjoy it from far away.

Duke,

Are you a white supremacist? If so, I suggest you get the hell out of this web site.

Caledonia is not a race issue, and even if it were, your ignorant musings about whites and browns are completely out of line in a civilized forum.

Posted by: Johan i Kanada | 2006-08-13 1:10:32 PM


Zeb,

I don't live in Ontario, but I was born there. I left it as soon as I was old enough. I partially agree with your assessment, but then all immigrants came with high hopes and first generation always had the shit jobs.

Johan i Kanada, I am not a white supremacist, in fact I am actually a brown person. However, I am smart enough to realize that the only civilized places on this planet were those developed by white free people. What country do you prefer to live in ... not a white one now ... ? Say ... an African country? A middle Eastern country? ... perhaps one of the lovely brown central or South American countries? How about Haiti or Cuba ... Wait ... there's South East Asia? How about there? Just pack up your shit and go live there. I dare you.

I would personally live only in in Canada, the USA, Australia and that's about it. England is gonzo.

And you may not be aware ... but this forum is only partially civilized. We are still allowed to say whatever we want and debate it with name calling fools who tell us we are ignorant and to get out of the forum entirely. Quite intolerant would you say? If we allow thing to get too civilized, political correctness with break out like acne and then it will be nothing but puss heads like you afraid to say anything.

Caledonia is a race issue. If you replace those f**king indians with white people it would last about twenty minutes and they would all be in jail. It's loser indians playing the victim race card to get our money ... got it Mr Kanada?

And by the way, I don't hate indians just the ones who play this game.


Posted by: Duke | 2006-08-13 3:48:02 PM


One more thing Mr Kanada,

There is point in being a white supremist since that field is already crowed with ...

Black supremists
Muslim supremists
Chinese Supremists
Native Indian supremists
Leftist supremists IE Torontonians
Lawyers of all stipes.

Everybody thinks their ass is class, but whites are the only ones not allowed to speak up for themselves.

Duke, you are officially awarded the brass balls for saying how it is.

Posted by: Bunker | 2006-08-13 4:29:24 PM


How this topic got reduced to a colour issue is beyond me. It is about respect or lack of respect for rule of law. By the way a lot of those status Indians are as white as the whitest of you and the same goes for the jihadists (although they are as yet not so numerous).

Posted by: Alain | 2006-08-13 4:35:34 PM


Duke: Can't say you are wrong, just a little hard on the delicate sensibilities. This is the era where brutality and terrorism trump the brutal truth. We have to realize the Indians are laughing at us, have been for many moons. They will continue until someone with a brain/guts combination comes on the political scene and puts a stop to this lawless thuggery. The reservations are antiquities of a bygone era as well. We are throwing reams of money into a black hole with no control over how it gets spent. The chiefs are living the high life while the regulars are living in poverty and blaming the white man for all their troubles, quite a scheme they have going.It's got nothing to do with racism, but that is the rallying cry to stop common sense from taking over. It's a sham.

Well stated Liz.

From my view, Ontario is having a nervous break down.

It has lost its morals, integrity, dream for the future, & the rule of law. It has become a multicult bastion of seething discord. Where becoming a Canadian is seen as insufferable. Individual gardens of men & Women, instead of a conjoined communities, into a Country. Are encouraged to tribalism & distain our Traditions. If these people are truly to become Canadians than they ought to be taught that as well as our own kids in history & civics classes.

Those that don’t like it can go with our blessing & there worldly wealth. As PM John Howard said. Its not incumbent for Australians to become them , its them that should be Australians. They do not like that . Than go to a Country they feel comfortable with. We should not submit to there wild ideology or religions. They should adapt to us keep there culture or Religion but have as your loyalty this Country. By the second generation it will not matter. They will be canuks.

It has nothing to save it from its own recklessness. This is what comes from having a Socialist Premier & a Marxist Mayor.

Did not the fall of the Soviet Empire teach them anything.

Caste systems by race , finances , sex, religion, or in the Canada’s of today. Educational snobbery. Do not make a Nation.

All Ontario has done is import a 5th column, Who's aim is the Islamification of Canada. By politics or birth.

Considering the insane amount of fraud in this Province, & its appeasement to killers.

I think Alberta should start on its own Republic to escape the psychosis of these greedy traitors, while we can. Least we lose our own commonsense & morality. If not our work ethic & real moral standards. To there invidious form of moral equivalence cooked in tyranny, basted in lies.

Its quite plain Ontario is fading economically & communally by there very policies steeped in prejudice & smug self righteousness. Just my opinion.

The Chinese do a good job. The Italians, Jews, Hutterites, Amish, Ukrainians, Germans, most Africans. Why should we even listen to Cair? They even threaten there own leaders. They will not acculturate. Those that do not. Can leave & find a Country that will. Oh I forgot , there ALL poor. Unless your on the same page as a polity than go to another book. Just my opinion.

I agree that this should not be allowed to be turned into a "race" or "victime" issue. We need to terminate the Indian Act and all that it entails: equal treatment and rights for all but not special rights. This approach has not advanced or helped the Indians but has created a group expecting and demanding welfare. That was never Indian tradition by the way. Furthermore when you consider that from the creation of the Indian Act any white woman who married a status Indian became immediately herself status Indian, it should be clear that this isn't about 'race'/colour.

Since no government has had the guts to terminate the Indian Act due to the lobbying of a national Indian association, itself funded by the same government, we should at the very least insist that the rule of law be applied equally to all. Yet we don't even do that.

Read it again with a few minor changes.

The islamic religion is antiquity of a bygone era as well. We are throwing reams of money into a black hole with no control over how it gets spent. The leader of the islamic world are living the high life while the regulars are living in poverty and blaming the white s9west) man for all their troubles, quite a scheme they have going.It's got nothing to do with racism (or bigotry, but that is the rallying cry to stop common sense from taking over. That is islam.

As I stated before, the only difference between the naive indians and down-trodden muslims is that the muzzies don't drink and the indians are not yet as violent as they are.

Long time reader, first time poster. As a retired Toronto police officer, I can personally attest to what previous posters have stated about the big smoke and Ontario in general. The political air here is so tainted with special interest causes and liberal dogma, real law and order is a thing of a bygone era. Toronto has turned into a third world cesspool and with it any sense of morality has vanished in the name of political correctness. It’s of no surprise to most here that the situation in Caledonia has been allowed to fester to this point. The actions or lack thereof by the Premier says so much more about him (and Liberals in general) that the situation itself. Alas people, we witness the death of right and wrong.

Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-13 10:15:20 PM


Harry:

Welcome aboard.

We look forward to hearing from that rare creature, a Torontonian with a sense of morality.

My sister grew up in Edmonton and has lived in Toronto for the past 25 years. It's astounding how brainwashed she has become, yet it's encouraging that she can still provide me with enough ammunition to help remind me of her saner roots.

Posted by: Set you free | 2006-08-13 10:56:18 PM


Well thanks Set, always nice to be amongst people who are wired correctly. It’s a very strange fact about Torontonians and their politics. Don’t really understand it (perhaps the water?) but when engaged in actual debate about any social issue, their eyes glaze over at the mention of morality or any sense of judgement. They live in a vacuous pool of relativism and their beliefs are bolstered every day from sources like the Star/CBC/Globe. And to think I left Edmonton in the 60’s to come back home! As a matter of disclosure, I admit I no longer live in Toronna but rest peacefully in the northlands of Georgian Bay.

Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-13 11:12:31 PM


Karol,

Much of what you say is true but I’m not a believer in conspiracy theories either from the left or the right. I’ve had enough dealings with governments at all levels to know they would have a hard time arranging sexual favors in a house of ill-repute let alone a major conspiracy and cover-up

Through all this politicking, most people have actually missed the point. The “natives” are there unlawfully and this liberal government has condoned their actions simply by allowing the occupation to go on as long as it has. What is lost in all the banter is that Prem Dalton has already sided with the trespassers, purchased the land (with taxpayers money) and all that’s left are the “details” and the manner in which these “natives” will enjoy their profits. It would be prudent for anyone really interested in this issue to examine who these “natives” really are and the substance of their claim.

I’m not shocked or even surprised at how the liberals have handled this situation and as a matter of fact, I'd be shocked if they did any different. What does surprise me is that a member of our judiciary has the gonads to take them to task. If anyone believes this is the last we’ll hear from these “natives”, they are living on a different planet than I.

Last but not least, I agree with one of the posters who implied that this was a “race” issue. If these protestors had of been middle-aged white men demanding another golf course in the area, they would have been arrested, charged and probably incarcerated. Ah yes, we do indeed get the government we deserve! But it does look good on Premier Tweedle-Dee.

Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-14 1:53:03 PM


Harry: Thanks for sharing your insight. I have been calling Toronto a cesspool for some time now. Visiting that city is a different experience from less than ten years ago. It's sad. It just doesn't seem like a city in Canada. It is a haven for the Left and their propaganda. Until it becomes intolerable to those who work hard and pay the big bucks to keep the place going and to attract tourists nothing will change.

The Conservative government could do a great deal by changing the immigration and stop letting in people who have no intention of integrating and stop funding multiculturalism.

Law and order will be another factor in the clean up of that city. They have to stop the leftist hug-a-thug ideology, doesn't work, never will.

Posted by: Liz J | 2006-08-14 2:06:40 PM


I watched part of the Ipperwash inquiry. I saw a sister of George testify that the men were drinking that evening and then went out to the park and shoot at some boards. Shortly after,Dudley was shot. Somehow or other this fact never got any play in the media. What kind of fool goes out after dark to target practise near cops in a no-go zone? A very dead and ultimately expensive one.We had somrthing like this on a reserve just west of Calgary a couple years bsck. A woman,pissed out of her skull opened fire on a cop that was coming to check on the children. He shot back,killing her and one of her children.Of course,he was branded a racist,fortunately he was cleared.

Posted by: wallyj | 2006-08-14 4:20:23 PM


Karol,

As true as all this might be, it’s all speculation. There is no doubt that the leaders of these people are well versed, after all, they are professional agitators. Same faces pop up at every “ peace” rally and “protest” on the streets of Toronto. They are all well coached by radical lawyers and advocates who instruct on how to circumvent authority.

However, it’s nice to see someone that has faith in the Canadian electorate. Personally, I think one has to actually live in Ontario to understand just how far the liberal rot has spread. Even in small rural towns (where I live) Harper/Harris and anything to do with conservative values are mocked and ridiculed in the media. Don’t forget, some 50% of people in Ontario (if some polls are to be believed) believe that Mike Harris’ Safe Schools Act had a direct impact on Toronto’s gun problems. The average Ontario voter selects the government based upon a photo op and few sound bytes and we all know who controls those knobs and dials.

As horrible as it sounds, the Provincial and Federal Liberals (IMHO) will be returned to power in the next run. If wrong, I’ll happily buy the first round. Anyway, we seem to have gotten away from the topic at hand but it’s always nice to rant.

Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-14 6:15:20 PM


Karol,

Interesting. Fascinating is probably more appropriate. I know the people you mention and your frustrations don’t surprise me in the least.

The Toronto Police Department is a HUGE corporation and as such has a history of cover-ups and incompetence. I knew Blair and he was good cop but I think he makes for a bad politician (which is what that position is). The Chief it should be remembered is surrounded by sycophants and senior officers so it just might be possible that this information never reached him. Not making excuses but know that position is well insulated.

Your are correct though that the PSA doesn’t allow the Chief to investigate or discharge allegations against himself (rightly so). Sad as it is, the Police Forces (sorry, services!) have simply become an arm of the politicians and move back and forth depending on their master’s wishes. Note the lawlessness in Toronto and the fiasco at Caledonia. Sadly, they really do not represent the general public any longer. Sir Robert Peel is rolling in his grave. You might have better luck with the Law Society (LMAO).

Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-14 7:45:34 PM


Caledonia should establish a police force, then they wouldn't be held hostage by a bunch of thugs.

Homeowners everywhere don't seem to mind the loss of value in their homes so far, but at some point they'll get tired of not only paying outrageous taxes to support aboriginal violence, they will probably be upset that their biggest asset isn't worth as much as it should be worth.
