Deconstructing a Hero: Chuck Norris, I Am Disappoint!

Chuck Norris fans everywhere might be disappointed to find out their favorite Texas Ranger karate-cop is an advocate for bible lessons in public schools:

Sorry to any Chuck Norris fans that now regret their misplaced hero worship.

Canadians: Why Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are Bad for You, Your Friends, Your Family and Your Loved Ones

MONSTER MASH: Pedophile Protector Pope Ratzinger and PM Stephen Harper agree: Marriage is only between a man and a woman, and "the distribution of condoms in Africa is increasing the problem of AIDS."

Harper Conservatism, to a large extent, is based on notions of sin and punishment:
Sinners should go to jail for punishment, not rehabilitation. Removing them from society is only a start; they should also be denied anything that ameliorates hardship as the public whim demands.

Sinners are lazy, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and mentally ill. They should feel ashamed about collecting welfare. They could easily cure themselves and improve their lives if only they believed in a higher power.

Sinners are sexually perverted - gay, lesbian, transgendered, bisexual, queer - and therefore undeserving of equal consideration under laws concerning marriage, partner health care benefits, spousal insurance, wills and probate, even hospital visiting rules.

Sinners get pregnant by accident on purpose from having sex outside of marriage, so they should be denied abortions, especially government-funded abortions.
Being moral and good as defined by Stephen Harper is the only path to prosperity and freedom for citizens of Canada. All others go directly to jail, do not pass G20, do not collect a settlement for false arrest by the RCMP.

Burglary Backpack Mystery: What does it all mean?

A geography teacher at the University of Hawaii recently interrupted an office "burglary" and managed to grab the intruder's backpack as he fled the scene, which contained these items:

The mystery here is the burglar's intent, given the combination of tools he was carrying:

1. Metal Hacksaw handle and various blades.

2. Paint can opener, also works as small pry tool.

3. Can of air cleaner missing nozzle. May have been used to blow air or cool if used upside-down.

4. Pick of some sort, probably sharp due to tape over ends. Possible a diddle-stick or spudger.

5. Basic slip-joint pliers.

6. Compound or double-fulcrum cutters, for cutting thick or hard objects. Basically small bolt-cutters. Picture quality is poor, this may be a crimper, however it looks like it has cutting blades and not a die.

7. Fire extinguisher with plastic bottle attached to the bottom. This may be so that the device can be adjusted in height to be able to effectively wedge between two objects of unknown spacing creating a physically-activated booby-trap or distraction.

8. Seems to be black plastic bags wrapped up with tape, or possibly a black plastic drop-cloth to help contain a mess.

9. Long-shank straight-slot screwdriver. Useful for turning screws as well as prying and poking.

10. Crescent-brand slip-joint (or "Water Pump") pliers wrapped in electrical tape. Also, roll of black electrical tape.

11. Stanly brand 6-in-1 screwdriver.

12. Bag containing: Basic right-handed scissors, generic 11-in-1 screwdriver (possibly containing hollow torx [star point] security bits), various precision or jeweler's screwdrivers.

13. Looks like a Radio Shack brand motion detector receiver paired with #15 below.

14. Latex finger protectors, possibly to prevent fingerprints without requiring full gloves.

15. Wire-mold brand surface-mount electrical box containing various electronic components. Most likely contains motion detection components and is probably the guts from a Radio Shack wireless motion detector transmitter paired with #13 above which would be the receiver.

I think the most curious objects are #7 (Fire extinguisher with "adjustable-length" plastic bottle and hose-clamp girdle) and #14, the latex finger protectors.

What the heck is going on here?

RCMP Arrest Canadian Man "As a Personal Favor" for Corporate Executive


On the heels of the RCMP Dziekanski killers' perjury charges, more corruption within Canada's national Royal Canadian Mounted Police force has been exposed by a leaked message from the American embassy in Montreal detailing the arrest of a Canadian man "as a personal favor" to a corporate executive from the movie industry.

This RCMP corruption victim also died; yet another body covered in RCMP fingerprints.
"RCMP officers stated that they arrested the individual "as a personal favor" to a CMPDA [Canadian Motion Pictures Distributors Association] official"
Read the entire communication here. In sections 9 and 10, it clearly implicates the RCMP members responsible for this scheme of corruption:
"A superintendent and a staff sergeant combating intellectual property crimes at the RCMP's Montreal headquarters"
Learn more about Geremi Adam, deceased RCMP corruption victim.

More in the news:

Canadian Movie Pirate Arrest Was “Personal Favor” for Studio Exec

Wikileaks Document Describes Arrest Of Movie Pirate

Important questions that the RCMP and Canadians should be asking:

1. Who in the RCMP authorized this "personal favor" to arrest Geremi Adam?

2. Who is the CMPDA executive who requested Geremi Adam be arrested?

3. Would Mr. Adam be alive today if this favor had not been granted?

4. To what extent does the RCMP use state resources to protect corporate profits?

5. If a Canadian citizen learned that the police were coming to arrest them at the request of a corporation - "as a personal favor" - would the citizen be justified in using deadly force to defend themselves? (correct answer = yes)

Canadians need to have a real conversation about RCMP corruption and the growing corporatism of law & order in our country. We need civilian oversight on the RCMP - and every other police force in Canada - and we need it now.
