Dollar store toy wand has hidden picture of demonic child cutting herself with a kitchen knife A mother in Dayton, Ohio was shocked this week when she purchased a toy wand for her child at a dollar store only to find it ran not on unicorn hair but a picture of a child slicing her arm open. In fairness to the dollar store (literally called ‘$.100 store’) the product was named ‘EVIL STICK’, though the pink lettering, fairies, swirls and snowflakes on the packaging ensured it would catch the eye of toddlers. The fact that the wand emits a cackling… View Articleclick here for more

Fox News may drop famous face from lineup ‘We plan on meeting with him when he returns from his trip’ Fox News and Ben Carson – who is considering a bid for the White House – went their separate ways last week. And now Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee might be the next high-profile name dropped from the payroll. Huckabee, who sought the Republican nomination for president in 2008, appears to be gearing up for a second run – which would mean he’d have to give up his Saturday night show, “Huckabee,” on the network.

Alberta First Nations sue Feds over B.C. dam project When British Columbia built the massive Bennett dam on the Peace River, northern Alberta First Nations had to move their homes because water levels fluctuated drastically. That was the 1960s and two northern Alberta First Nations don’t want to see that happen again now that BC Hydro has approval for a third dam, Site C, on the Peace River. The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and Mikisew Cree First Nation filed a lawsuit Thursday in Federal Court against the $7.9-billion hydroelectric project that was given environmental approval by the federal government earlier… View Articleclick here for more
Den Tandt: Tories’ love for the military is all hat, no cattle Question: For how much longer can the federal Conservatives shamble along with a national defence and procurement posture that is disjointed, underfunded, poorly understood, chronically secretive and increasingly, obviously unequal to the challenges at hand? This week at the G20 in Brisbane, Australia, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will wax combative about the growing list of strategic and security brushfires faced by the global club of pluralistic democracies, of which Canada purports to be an important member. Chances are good that, when Harper speaks, his peers will pay… View Articleclick here for more
Push childcare as part of ‘public good’ in coming election, educators told One of the NDP’s elder statesmen says the debate about a national childcare program needs to be reframed if backers want to have any success in the next federal election. Stephen Lewis told a national gathering of some 500 childcare educators and activists that childcare should be framed as a “public good” as Canadians debate the issue going into the next federal election. “I would argue that early childhood education and care is a public good,” said Lewis, a former Canadian ambassador to the UN. “A public good… View Articleclick here for more
Harper now 6th longest-serving PM in history During their first weeks in office back in 2006, many Conservatives thought Stephen Harper would be lucky to last a year as prime minister. They figured the Liberals would quickly regroup, force an election, and put Harper and the Tories right back on the opposition benches. In fact, Harper’s swearing-in on Feb. 6, 2006 began a decade of electoral darkness for the Liberals and started a remarkable run for Harper. On Thursday, Harper marked his 3,203rd day in office, eclipsing the length of time Brian Mulroney spent as prime minister. That puts Harper… View Articleclick here for more
TX Rep Introduces Legislation Barring Enforcement of Federal Gun Control Laws Lawmakers in Texas will consider legislation to bar the enforcement of any federal gun control law that “infringes on a law abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.” The bill, numbered HB 176, is titled The Second Amendment Preservation Act and was introduced by state representative Time Kleinschmidt (R-Dist. 17). According to the Tenth Amendment Center, Kleinschmidt’s bill sets forth specific examples to show which federal gun control laws would be unenforceable. For instance, a federal law could not be enforced in the state of Texas if it:… View Articleclick here for more
