Checkmate! Satire At It's Finest

Speaking of checkmate, what the hell is John McCain thinking? I know, I know, I'm a Canadian, why the hell do I care about the Presidential election in the States? Because, the whole goddamn world is affected by who ever is in charge of the last superpower in the world. Is McCain(or his advisers) really that stupid to think if they have a woman as VP they will get the Hillary vote? This is their checkmate, ace in the hole, or whatever cliche you like? For christs sake, they went after Obama on his apparent inexperience, but now a 44 year old, barely one term governor, with NO federal experience, is justifiably qualified to be second in command(and possibly first;McCain IS 72 years old!)? I know the many Hillary supporters may still be bitter, but I doubt they are stupid. Besides, after watching Obama's DNC acceptance speech, which was historic in of itself, the man pretty much laid to rest why he was the best choice to lead the democrats to the White House. McCain is going to need to pull a hell of a lot more than a rabbit out of his ass to even come close to the speech Obama gave. This election is going to be better than any championship game in any sport! Let's get ready to rumble!!!

Back From The Cottage

Back after a nice 6 days at my sister-in-laws cottage. It's a fantastic, rustic place on quiet and quite private Camel Lake in Muskoka. We drove into Bracebridge on Tuesday for dinner at Kelsey's for my birthday(34th, by the way), but the rest of the time was spent just relaxing, taking in the view of the lake from the shore, and the living room of the place. I even heard the 2 loons that live on the lake with their famous call(made for a great intro to my acoustic rendition of The Tragically Hip's "Wheat Kings"). Here's a few pics to make you all jealous!! ;)

Maybe That's Why It's Called "The Good Book"?

Check out this link here to an article about 6 very obvious sex stories in the Bible. Sure you can dress it up with fancy language, but in the end it's about good ol' fornicating! And not the "I'll smite thee down" kind, but God approved incest and other common and some disturbing yet God approved acts.

Please tell me again, how we get our morality from the Bible? And don't give me that "it's from the Old Testament, the New Testament redeems the Old..." bullshit. Christians always say the bible has the answers, NOT the New Testament...AND BOY ARE THEY RIGHT!!!

Blessed Be Oprah?

You can call me lazy for not writing my own post about this, but The Information Paradox blog just did it much better, so read it here.

Oprah used to be credible as a human being, considering her background and upbringing(look it up), but she instead has become so deluded by her own ego, it's just plain disgusting. Move over L.Ron Hubbard, make room for another snake oil salesman/woman.
