Pussy Riot Punished For Putin Put Down!

- August 19th, 2012

It wouldn’t be surprising if those three members of the Russian, punk rock group, Pussy Riot, were soon pardoned… or at the very least cut a great deal of slack.

The heat is on, and President Vladimir Putin and the questionably righteous, Russian Orthodox Church, are taking a thumping on the world stage.

Vlad The Bad!Slapped with a two-year prison sentence for their “guerilla” performance in a Moscow cathedral, these young women have become martyrs in the war against injustice.

Around the globe, outraged protesters have taken to the streets, echoing the cry of international rock stars (Madonna, McCartney, Sting, etc.) and Amnesty International… “Release, Pussy Riot!”

While their act of invading a church and banging out a tune, calling on the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Prez Putin, might be deemed a tad offensive, (they apparently have a history of rude and crude) it certainly doesn’t justify two-years in the pokey!

According to the judge, the gals were guilty of “hooliganism on grounds of religious hatred”… their actions, “sacrilegious and blasphemous!”

Really? THAT, was the crime? A cynical person might suspect, that had the target of their musical attack NOT been “Czar” Putin, had they instead belted out a rendition of say, ‘Hang on Sloopy’, their authoritarian overlords might have been more lenient.

Pussy Riot

It’s a well known fact that Herr Putin, a former KGB bigwig, has a very high opinion of himself.

His mirror, mirror on the wall, reflects a tough guy, an athletic adventurer… savior of the Russian people! (If you want a giggle, Google the guy)

This would be why he doesn’t let things like elections stand in his way, and why he and his lackeys will continue to stifle criticism.

IF, the Russian people have had enough, and truly want to put Putin in his place, they may want to praise the Pussy pretties… and stop behaving like the group’s moniker.

Muslim Cleric Makes Clothing Call For Canuck Chicks!

- July 16th, 2012

So, according to a street corner Islamic preacher in Toronto, what this country needs is a “dress code” for women… a law that would require them to “cover up”, eliminating the likelihood of sexual assault.

Big Al!

One, Al-Haashim Kamena Alangana believes, that the recent attacks at York University could have been avoided, if our ladies were forced to don the more modest dress of Muslim women.

Quick!  Somebody get a net… or a ticket for this cat back to the 12th century!  Like maybe Afghanistan.  I hear the Taliban have a few openings!

Like all Muslim men who insist their women be decked out in, what I call the “beekeeper suit”, Mr. Atangana, in my humble opinion, is a misogynist pig! (I can’t spell chauvinist)

The truth, as I see it, is that this is about dominance, not modesty… perpetrated on women for centuries by insecure men who fear they don’t have the right “stuff” to hang onto a woman… a way of discouraging any challenge for what is THEIRS… an attempt to keep the “hounds” off!  They, like Mr. A. believe that if you can’t get a peek at the goods, you won’t want the goods.

Of course, they, he, couldn’t be more wrong.  Cocooning your gal in bolts of cloth does not discourage unsolicited advances.  For God’s (your choice) sake man, read a book, or a newspaper… catch a newscast!

Show me a Muslim woman who’s ever tripped (literally) through the streets of Cairo, who’s never had her tucked away tuckus touched, (or much worse!) and I’ll show you a woman too quick to catch!

Now, normally I wouldn’t dare presume to speak on behalf of our Canadian lasses, but in this case I think I’m safe.

I believe, given the opportunity, they would say to friend, Atangana… “Drop dead, Jack!”…

Or…“Catch a flight out of Pearson!”

SCORE ONE FOR THE PREZ!

- May 1st, 2012

A wee tip of the hat to U.S. President Barack Obama, for pulling off his, ‘in your face, terrorist dudes’, visit to Afghanistan …on the anniversary of the Bin Laden hit!

Osama Bin dead one year!

Well done, Sir! 

I can only imagine the mad scramble at bad guy HQ …” He’s where? Here? NOW!? …DOH!!!”

Under cover of darkness, Air Force One slipped into Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base there, where the Prez caught a copter flight to Kabul for a meeting with his counterpart, (like, really!?) Afghan Grand Poobah, Ahmid Karzai.

The two signed an agreement that will broadly govern America’s role in that “garden” nation, beyond Uncle Sam’s combat role at the end of 2014.

Obviously, this was a gutsy move on the part of the President. While it may score him some points this election year, (his opponents will deem it a stunt) setting foot on enemy turf, no matter how well he’s protected, is always risky.

Da Prez!

Kabul is anything but a safe zone, with on-going insurgent attacks …and then, there’s “Krazy Karzai.”

I assume this wasn’t a surprise visit …that Karzai knew Obama was coming … which, I also assume, was cause for a little concern.

Ahmid, you see, is NOT one of America’s BFF’s.

Last month, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, spoke with U.S. Secretary of Defence, Leon Panetta …the following is a transcript, of a portion of that interview:

BLITZER: You trust Afghan president, Mr. Secretary, Hamid Karzai?

PANETTA: He – he is the leader of Afghanistan.

BLITZER: Do you trust him?

PANETTA: Well, I mean I – I’ve sat down with him. I talk with him. We talk pretty frankly with each other. And, you know, he is – he is the the leader and he is the person we have to deal with.

BLITZER: Does that mean you trust him?

PANETTA: Well, I mean, certainly, you know, you – you trust the leaders that you – you have to deal with. But you always kind of watch your back at the same time.

BLITZER: That doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement of the leader of Afghanistan.

PANETTA: Well, you know, it’s – it’s true for any leader we deal with. You know, you’re…

BLITZER: But this one has said awful things about the United States.

PANETTA: No, I understand. And, obviously, that’s been – that’s been a concern. But at the same time, we have had the ability to directly relate to him when it comes to some of the major issues that we’ve had to confront.

I think the answer the Secretary was trying to avoid, was …NO! WE CAN’T TRUST THAT A-HOLE, AS FAR AS WE CAN THROW HIM!!!

Dumb and Dumber!

Unfortunately, we too, will continue our association with Karzai …and I’m sure Ottawa agrees …WE CAN’T TRUST THAT A-HOLE, AS FAR AS WE CAN THROW HIM!!!

Iranian Boss Boneheads Ban Bart!

- February 7th, 2012

First, it was Barbie.  Now, Iran’s mildew-minded Mullahs, are going after… The Simpsons!

Up Yours!

In their futile effort to stem “western intoxication”, the Republic’s top dogs (oops, my bad) have ordered the morality hounds (doh!) to sniff out any likeness of the Springfield clan… “Diese Bart Simpson puppe ist Verboten!” (Please employ Farsi accent)

According to one, Mohammad Hossein Farjoo, Secretary for Policy-making at the Institute for the Intellectual (gasp) Development of Children and Young Adults (phew!), The Simpsons, like Barbie, are corroding the morals of Iranian youts.

However, Herr Farjoo, who oversees what Iranian rug rats can play with, does give a nod of approval to some American action figures… like Superman and Spiderman.  The Farj points out, that unlike The Simpsons, who are a self-centered, irreligious bunch, The Man of Steel and Spidey battle for the oppressed!

Hello?

Obviously, the Wacko-tollah and his gang of religious, Nazi-like numbnuts, are unfamiliar with the meaning of “oppressed”.

OBVIOUSLY, they fail to realize, that if Superman were real, if he in fact did exist… THEY WOULDN’T!  He’d punt their tight tuckuses (tucki?) to infinity and beyond!

Full Moon Over Tehran

He’s not faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, or able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but Bart Simpson packs a punch.  Just the thought, of his defiant, cheeky comeback gaining a foothold, scares the Hell out of Tehran.

“EAT… MY… SHORTS!”

EX-MAS! P.S.,B.S.!

- December 4th, 2011

For those who like to wail about the war on Christmas, here’s something else to get you hoppin’.

Cambridge P.S.

An Ottawa area school, Cambridge P.S. in Embrun, has pulled the plug on its’ annual Christmas concert. Replacing the annual, festive event, will be a “holiday-themed craft night” and a “nondenominational concert”, sometime in February.

The reason’s a familiar one.  A small number of the students aren’t of the faith, so when the other kids are rehearsing for the concert, they’re forced to sit out, occasionally biding their time in the principal’s office.

While exposing kids of other faiths to Christianity may be risky, (it can spread faster than an air-born contagion) can’t we lessen the threat of contamination and avoid their exclusion?

Could the little non-believers just warble secular numbers, like Frosty the Snowman or Jingle Bells … from across the stage… not getting too close to the Christian kiddies and their Joy to the World?  Maybe earplugs and blindfolds for the overly cautious?  Would uptight parents and politically correct educators be willing to chance it!?

Obviously (there’s always those who don’t get it) I’m being facetious.  And obviously, like many of you, I’ve had it up to here (hand at neck) with this nonsense!

Sign of The TimesTis the season to be jolly!  So, let’s cut the crap and employ a simple solution to this “problem”.

A number of years back, at our kids’ school in Oakville, ALL took part in the Christmas concert, INCLUDING those kids of other beliefs, who shared songs of their faith and culture.  The children loved it, the parents loved it… it was not only fun, but educational!  And ain’t that what school should be all about?

Now, for the odd bigoted, tolerance deficient parent, who might balk at this accommodation, here’s what YOU can do.  Think PRIVATE school for your little darlin’.   

To all, a Merry Christmas… or a very Happy, WHATEVER!
