The interesting thing is that he has no clue about the author or her philosophy, he was just fulfilling my Christmas wish. As he was paying for the books, the clerk made a point of telling him that she did not believe in Ayn Rand's philosophy. He told her he had no clue what she was talking about and was only buying the books for his wife, who wanted them. He found it quite strange that a clerk would disapprove of his book choice and mentioned it to me. I laughed and told him not to worry, Ayn Rand was not for everyone.
What bugged me was the fact that a clerk in a bookstore felt it was her duty to tell him her opinion of his book choices. Can you say, typical lefty brain dead moron? Seriously, what business was it of her's to tell my husband that she disapproved of his/my reading choice?
That made me think about internet comments. During the day, lefties rule the comments, but at night Conservatives post more comments. On the weekends, most newspapers and especially CTV close down the comments, but when they don't, Conservatives post more than lefties. A good example is this CTV comment section that got closed down really fast.
Read all the comments, it's worth your time. I also went over to the Globe and Mail today, briefly. Every time I go there it makes me think of Rabble.ca, a real leftist haven that kicks any conservative out after a post or two (you see NDP supporters don't like diversity). Makes me wonder if the Globe is supported financially by the Rabble founders. I don't care if they are, because the comments discourage any right minded person from ever buying that paper, which means they are loosing over 40% of Canadians by their biased reporting. I wonder if Soros and Tides Canada contribute any funding to the Globe and Mail? Here is an example of what I mean of the lefty vision of the Globe and Mail.Former UN StafferSo Paul Heinbecker is mad at the Tory govenrment? Too bad. Unlike the majority of the posters here, I have actually worked with this man. He is a prima dona, lost in his socialist dream channeled via the liberal party and a full member of the UN backroom club. A wheeler-dealer in the worst sense of the term, he is fully at home in the exclusive dining rooms where the deals are cut and payoffs are routine. I spent 2 years on the staff of the Canadian delegation (during the Chretien years) and saw more deals and payoffs made than I can count. I am proud that Canada is no longer playing that game and praise this government for taking action. I can only hope that there will be some criminal action taken soon against those who profited from this (a dim hope, but I hold it nonetheless).
U.S. to impose new emission rules on power plants, refineriesNotice how the article specifically mentions the oil-sands sector, and nothing about Ontario's polluting coal plants or Quebec's asbestos industry? Lefties are sooo predictable in their discrimination. Oil companies might face additional costs which will be passed on to the consumer, don't you lefties remember Obama, your saviour, telling you that energy costs for you were going to skyrocket? The US is already talking about $4 a gallon gas. Here is a sampling of the lefty comments:
The proposed regulations – to take effect at the end of 2012 – would be in addition to EPA rules that came into effect on Sunday that require all new plants or major expansions to get permits for emitting carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs).
That permitting requirement has been in the works for several months. Federal Environment Minister John Baird has said Ottawa will not adopt similar measures, but will broadly match the U.S. regulatory approach.
Despite the movement south of the border, the Harper government has given no indication how it intends to regulate Canadian industry, including oil companies who could face significant additional costs for the rapidly expanding oil-sands sector if Ottawa follows the U.S. lead.
I bet the same lefties that post in Rabble pollute the Globe and Mail. It stinks really bad in there. Don't go if you don't have to.Harper's policy: "Ignore the environment, it will go away."
And the conbots cheered and clapped on command.dirtyduck
that's not the way we do business up here. We sell out to foreign countries, and let them pollute our air, rivers, and land. They own the shares, so get the lion's share of the profits, and we tug our forelocks, and tip our caps, to our European, Oriental, and American masters. We pay 40% more for fuel 200 miles from it's source, and think ourselves lucky it's not 60%.
Harper needs his job in the mailroom of big oil back.
