Frank Graves: Just Another Typical Liberal Party Supporter

Frank Graves is a typical Liberal Party of Canada ringmaster with NO morality.  In the same way that assorted Democrats in the U.S. use race baiting to drum up hatred & division, so is Graves doing the same thing here in Canada.  His actions are disgusting & pathetic. Throughout my life I've encountered people just like him who also have tried to ostracize me & minimize my views simply because I "dared" to disagree with them. But do so and you frequently get labeled as an ignoramus & hater. It's long overdue that such folks get called out on their bullshit!

Quatchi Enjoys Czech Beer

I have a dear friend in Prague named Dana. She lived in Vancouver for a time and really loved the city. So right after the 2010 Olympics I sent her a care package of sorts. I had thought it had gotten lost in the mail. Just this morning I called Canada Post, seeking to make a claim. Then an hour or so later I received this photo from Dana, showing Quatchi admiring a Czech beer!

Update: Dana just sent me some additional photos of her and the items I sent her:

The End of Democracy in Britain?

I've long thought that the way the EU government was setup was far from a real democracy. Now it appears that others are sensing the same.

The Infamous South Park Episode

I just watched the infamous episode.  It is BEYOND ridiculous that Comedy Central added a black "Censored" box over top of any presence of the Mohammed character and bleeped out any mention of his name.  Toward the end of the show there were long bleeps lasting 5+ seconds!

When my American friends [quite correctly] chastise my country of Canada for its lack of respect for free speech, I now only need to bring up this South Park episode as Example #1 of how true Free Speech is also dead in America.

Sadness reigns.  :-(

The Captain & Tennille: "Love Will Keep Us Together"

I wasn't much into music when I was a kid but I always LOVED this song! Toni Tennille has one of those magical voices, much like Karen Carpenter did too.

Seeking Written Mandarin Translator

A friend & colleague of mine in Mexico City is looking to contract out work to do English-to-Mandarin and Mandarin-to-English written translations.  Spanish is ultimately involved here too but he has found it impossible to find a good quality Spanish-to-Mandarin translator.  Anyhow, with the large number of  Mandarin speakers in Canada, he thought he might have better luck finding someone here.

If you or someone you know might have such skills then please e-mail Hector Miranda directly.  Gracias.

Vancouver Today

The Coming Violence in America

On April 15th there's more than a little chance that sporadic violence is going to occur all over the United States but before delving into that, let's go back to February 13th in Vancouver:

I've found most "anarchists" to be angry/confused/ignorant 20-something folks who have a propensity for violence but their pangs of conscience demand a minimal veil of justification to carry it out.  The events shown above occurred on the second day of the 2010 Olympics in downtown Vancouver.

These "anarchists" destroyed anything they deemed to be "corporate" under the justification that the Olympics was oppressing the People.  In fact, the black hooded thugs were simply out on a Joy-Walk of Violence, feeling very empowered amongst their similarly clothed fellow LOSERS.

In Vancouver, and Canada for that matter, there was an instant repulsion from The People.  And when the thugs realized that The People were strongly in support of the Olympics, they lost all of their justification to "protest" ever again during the Games.

Now let's look ahead.  There's a call going out to "anarchists" to carry out similar actions on April 15th.  Make no mistake though, this won't involve violence against property but rather against people, namely patriotic, law-abiding Americans who belong to the Tea Party Movement.  The difference in the U.S. is that a significant portion of the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media (kissing cousins, by the way) will secretly be applauding such violence by their "anarchist" comrades.  For anything that attempts to bring the Tea Party Movement into disrepute is fine with them.

Scary times ahead.
