- As you can see, Brad Wall is making appearances everywhere, especially on Yahoo! Sports and ProFootballTalk. I like Premier Wall but I would like to point out that I am reading sports pages so I don’t have to think about politics. GET OUT OF MY ESCAPE!
- Putin to be for president with Medvedev stepping aside—decade of consolidating power will secure him to 2024. Of course it’s already been established that Putin may already be The Most Interesting Man In The World.
- Sale of bunker-busting bombs to Israel may have been perceived as greenlighting Iran attack. Yes, I would concur with this. What else does Israel need these bombs for. While we are on the topic, does anyone notice the incredible similarities between Obama’s foreign policy and the Bush foreign policy?
- Need free art? You can steal it from the Government of Canada. More than $80,000 worth of art has gone missing over the years. 201 works of art have been stolen since the art bank opened in 1972. Crooks struck CBC buildings most. The public broadcaster has been hit 16 times at its bureaus across the country. Public Works has been robbed nine times at its Vancouver, Montreal, Gatineau, Que., Halifax and St. John’s, N.L., offices. Thieves struck the Finance Department six times and the offices of the taxman five times.
- While Republicans attack green energy, China massively invests to dominate the crucial sector. Let’s be honest about this, the future belongs to China. Canada will just get the crumbs.

- David Miller takes a series of pot shots at Rob Ford at TEXxToronto :: I like this line from Miller, Mr. Ford has also repeatedly said that he listens to taxpayers, but Mr. Miller says that term can be “derogatory.” Taxpayers, Mr. Miller says, implied consumers of government. Instead he encouraged Torontonians to consider themselves as “citizens” and “residents” of the city, and to continue to voice their opinions.
