U.S. to enforce no-fly zone over Libya?

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Here we go again, now Obama wants to interfere with the ‘revolution’ in Libya.

The Arab world is already sick and tired of U.S. and Western interference in its affairs, and rightly regards the U.S. as a running-dog lackey of Israel.

Darpa’s Cheetah-Bot Designed to Chase Human Prey

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

“As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human.

In my post “Free speech victory just the beginning!” on February 20th, I referred to “…the disturbing fact that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms specifically excludes the right to own property.

“Thus I see it as imperative that the Charter be amended as quickly as possible to include this basic human right” and suggested that “…perhaps the Ontario Landowners Association could consider joining up with similar organisations in the other provinces, to lobby for the necessary changes to be made…”

Well, it turns out to be better than that!

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

A fascinating initiative currently before the Virginia General Assembly is summarized as follows:

“Study; adoption of an alternative currency; report.

Israeli hissy-fit over Iranian Suez passage

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Two Iranian naval vessels, one frigate and one supply ship (the latter little more than an armed merchantman) pass through the Suez canal, and Israel starts complaining that Tehran is “seeking to dominate the Middle East”?

Police ‘Special Investigations Unit’ outrage

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

“Through a freedom of information request, the Star obtained 300 letters Scott sent to police forces over a 14-month period beginning in January 2009.  When asked Tuesday if his letters get a response, Scott said in an interview: “Overall, the answer is no. Typically I don’t get responses…”

New Zealand donation information

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

This second earthquake has not only caused serious damage, but unlike the last one has resulted in scores of fatalities, creating a whole new set of needs.

Once again, I am suggesting that the best way to assist our brothers and sisters there is by donating through the Salvation Army.
