Scotland votes on Thursday…

September 16th, 2014

Scottish Nationalism – Sept. 10th, 2014

September 10th, 2014

As shown by the first two items below, England seems eager for its own version of Quebec’s shameless blackmailing of Canada. Tell the Scots to leave or shut up, no special treatment.

U.K. leaders head north “with an emotional appeal for Scots to stay in the Union and a promise of more, substantive Holyrood powers”

Is Muslim sex-grooming a threat to Canada?

September 7th, 2014

“Whether Muslim child-grooming is taking place in Canada at the present is an open question. But I do believe that, as Canada’s insane immigration policies continue to flood us with unwanted Third-Worlders who refuse to fit in and try to impose their will on us, the numbers will eventually climb high enough that such predatory exploitation may well become the norm, if the British experience is anything to go by.”
