Saturday Morning Confusion about Islam?

Ladies and Gentlemen, there is so much being written about Islam lately that I thought you might like to understand this religion a little better, and see why they do the things they do! (Basically the Muslim Faith was conceived in violence, and propagated in violence, so is it any wonder they do stuff like […]

OH NO! Not again!

Brace yourself: the Old Farmer’s Almanac has revealed its predictions for Canada’s upcoming winter season, and it’s not great news. After last winter’s seemingly never-ending wickedly cold weather, residents in much of the country can expect more of the same in the coming months. “We’re looking at the T-Rex of winters,” Jack Burnett, editor of […]

Why Is Islam Just Like The Hotel California!

(Answer to this Islamic riddle is at the bottom!) Well folks, there was a “letter to the editor” in the paper today that showed me just how misleading and patently false some statements by irresponsible, ill-informed people can be! Some guy was writing about wind turbines, and he made two ridiculous claims that are unsupported […]

U.S. at War again!

In the past it was the “war on poverty” and the “war on drugs” etc. etc. and now the United States has gone to war again twice in one week! In a surprise move President Obama yesterday declared a “War on Ebola” and a “War on ISIS!” According to the Perspective Research Department, (see below) […]

Is Scotland crazy if they separate….., Aye!

With the vote for Scottish independence less than 48 hours away, the similarities with the Quebec referendums in 1980 and 1995 is striking. First of all, the separatists are appealing to emotions, rather than good ol’ common sense, and they are also trying to rig the election by throwing in all sorts of stuff that […]

Saturday Morning Confusion about the five worst movies at TIFF!

Thanks to the folks over at “Blog TO” for giving us this heads-up about the five movies not to see at TIFF. Posted by Alexander Huls Not everything at TIFF can be great.

The decline of the U.S. Empire!

As the U.S. marks the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and contemplates renewed military action in Iraq, some observers warn that America is a fading power. “There was a time when America would whisper ‘coup’ and nations would quake,” says historian and University of Wisconsin professor Alfred McCoy, noting that in a 20-year period up to […]

Vancouver has one hell of a problem!

Hey kids, it must have stopped raining in Vancouver because everybody has found something else to bitch about besides the weather! Vancouver residents were only able to view a lewd Satan statue for a few hours before it was gone, but now a new petition is trying to bring it back. The three-metre tall red, […]

RICHARD-KIEL Allan's Perspective

Another one “bites the dust!”

Richard Kiel is the latest Hollywood celebrity to kick the bucket, or in this case, “bites the dust!” [sic] Kiel’s most memorable stints were as villains in shows such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Wild Wild West, and in films like The Longest Yard and Silver Streak. But Kiel would ultimately be defined […]

Westward Ho!

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is important! Aside from the historical aspects, the discovery of a ship from the Franklin expedition will do wonders to strengthen our claim on the ARCTIC! Yup, we were up thee rooting around, and disturbing the Eskimo’s, hundreds of years ago. Canadian explorers were looking for the North-West passage long before […]

Obama takes the title of “Mr. Dithers!”

Dear Readers: We used to call Prime Minister Paul Martin “Mr. Dithers,” but due to recent events, we here at the Perspective Research Department think that President Obama has deservedly taken that tittle as his own. Of course, he is still deciding on whether he should pick up his trophy ………….., or not! ————————— Here’s […]

Scripturient: Blog & Commentary: The Unexamined Life

“The unexamined life,” Socrates declared in his trial, “is not worth living.” His student, Plato, wrote down those words in his account of Socrates’ trial and death, in the book, Apology.* Socrates was speaking for himself and about the value of his life as a thinking person. He was on trial in 399 BCE for impiety – […]

Politics and its Discontents: Tainted Pharmaceuticals: Health Canada’s ‘Feeble Response’

Posted  September 20, 2014  by  Lorne

The Toronto Star has recently been conducting some fine investigative work on tainted pharmaceuticals and the fact that Health Canada has been shielding the guilty companies from public scrutiny. The issue finally rose to a degree of national prominence this week when the issue was raised in the House. The ‘answers’ provided by Health Minister Rona Ambrose, however, were hardly comforting or reassuring. The bolded parts have been added for emphasis: “Whenever there is a dangerous product identified, Health Canada inspectors act immediately. In the case of a drug produced by Apotex, Health Canada inspectors asked the company to (Read more…)
