Australian Government – Environmentalism and Alternative Music Are Signs of Terrorism

Australian Government – Environmentalism and Alternative Music Are Signs of Terrorism by Michael Krieger Earlier this year, I highlighted how the UK government was cheerfully stretching the boundary of terrorist fear-mongering when it made it policy for registered childminders to “report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists.” No, that’s not a joke. Here’s an excerpt from the post, The War on Toddler Terrorists – Britain Wants to Force Nursery School Teachers to Identify “Extremist” Children: Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government. The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation… View Article

Trudeau opens mouth, inserts foot — twice!

Trudeau opens mouth, inserts foot — twice! by Candice Malcolm Last spring, many began to speculate that Canada was in for a long election campaign. The Tories were engineering an extended writ period, so went the thinking, in order to deplete their opponent’s war chests and to give rookie Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau ample time to stick his foot in his mouth on the big stage. Trudeau has a well-earned reputation for going off script. When he does, it often leaves us flabbergasted, checking the transcript to see what he actually said. There isn’t enough room to review the many… View Article

Liberal message might not make much sense, but at least it’s a message

Liberal message might not make much sense, but at least it’s a message By Andrew Coyne We have reached the stage of the campaign where the parties, having run out of things to say and candidates to sack, face a stark choice: repeat yourself, or make it up as you go along. The Liberals, for example, have discovered it is an important national objective to show Justin Trudeau in a T-shirt.

Oilsands pipelines now back on the election agenda

Oilsands pipelines now back on the election agenda Mulcair may have the most explaining to do in tonight’s French-language leaders’ debate So, now we know. The woman who wants to be the next Democrat to occupy the White House has made a decision that the president she hopes to succeed hasn’t, or won’t. Hillary Clinton came out against the Keystone XL this week, the Canadian-backed pipeline that would carry Alberta bitumen — and some North Dakota crude — through the heartland of America to the giant refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. “I think it is imperative that we look at the… View Article

The criminalization of cash has now begun in America

The criminalization of cash has now begun in America A 2011 law in Louisiana that flew in well below the radar when it was enacted actually criminalizes the use of cash. This is part of what appears to be a growing trend in America as governments seek to track your personal finances. As reported by the web site TechDirt in October 2011, an original version of the Louisiana measure did not ban cash transactions for second-hand goods at first. However, a final version of the legislation did institute such a ban. Mike Masnick, writing for TechDirt, noted that when he… View Article

The number of people watching TV is falling off a cliff

The number of people watching TV is falling off a cliff by Myles Udland It seems like people just aren’t watching TV anymore. A report from Ad Age on Wednesday paints a bleak picture of Tuesday’s overnight TV ratings, which come during one of the industry’s most important weeks of the year as new shows are rolled out on the major networks. Ad Age, citing figures from Nielsen, reported that every returning drama that aired Tuesday night saw viewers decline by double digits while debuts were a “mixed bag.” But aside from the performance of individual shows, the number of… View Article
