Six In The Morning: Bonus Saturday Sixer!

1 FLOOD, FLOOD, FLOOD Trouble on the Prairies and whaddaya mean there’s no flood insurance???

2 SLAUGHTER IN SYRIA Another Middle Eastern country with a fucking awful, tyrannical government keeps shooting its own citizens.

3 CALL IN THE RESERVE (FUND) Glendale’s mayor has a new scheme to transfer gobs of public money to the would-be hockey magnate who wants to keep the NHL in Arizonugh.

4 LIBERALS ATTACK LAYTON SURGE Sigh. More here. Tell you what, you guys vote for Evanchuk and Clipsham, me and Beatty will vote for Goodale. Everyone happy! Except the Greens.

5 TROST, TORIES AND ABORTION The Globe And Mail has a good piece on why the (should be non-)issue of a woman’s right to choose what to do with her body is a problem for the Conservatives:

The Reform roots of the Conservative Party were nourished by social conservatives who believe Canada had drifted dangerously far from its Christian cultural roots, who oppose abortion and same-sex marriage, who want government to take a tougher stance on crime while protecting a gun owner’s rights.

As prime minister, Mr. Harper has enacted a tough-on-crime agenda and fought to scrap the long-gun registry while avoiding more vexed questions of abortion and gay marriage.

More here. It’s a good read. Also, here’s an article about how Trost stands by his lunatic statements. So sad when integrity, honesty and consistency are wedded to shitty, awful, superstition-based medieval ideas.

6 OH, AND BRAD WALL SAYS HE’S PRO-LIFE BUT ABORTION STILL STAYS FUNDED AND STUFF Actually, I think this makes Brad Wall pro-choice but personally opposed to abortion, which is cool. This is how you should behave, pro-life people. Follow the premier’s example and snippy alt newspapers won’t call you out for being psycho-dickwad religious kooks. Thenkew.

  1. To any psycho-dickwad religious kooks in Saskatoon-Humboldt you’re probably better served ticking a vote for Jim Pankiw. He makes Brad Trost seem like a baby killing, pot smoking, pacifist homo. If you’re gonna vote for bigots, go big or go home!

  2. What is this crap about Christian cultural roots? Canada’s roots are in aboriginal spirituality, if anything. And if you want to start our history with the European Invasion, then those Christian roots should be Catholic, which a lot of fundamentalist Deformers see as a second eeevil.

    Don’t you love revisionist history?
