Election Roundup and Other Trite Nonsense

Be not afraid of greatness.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness thrust upon 'em.


It is interesting how Google search results can vary from country to country. Although Google claims not to censor their queries in most of the Western World, the same cannot be said for some other countries.

Take China for example. If you do a Google Image search for "tiananmen" on Google.com you get this. Exactly what you would expect from such a query, pictures of the 1989 student massacre in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

Take the same query and enter it into the Google.cn Image Search and you'll find what you get is a little different. You get beautiful pictures of the Square, with happy, peaceful people. This is Chinese censorship, on Google... Pretty shitty of them wouldn't you say?

Sorry for the serious tone... Since I'll be boring you later with a political analysis time for something more entertaining. Why be serious when you can be laughing about something?

Kevin Federline Is A Tool.



The smartest thing this man has done and will ever do was to knock up Britney Spears. It seems to have been all down hill from there for Mr. Britney Spears. Kevin Federline has it in his head that he is some kind of talented recording artist and recently released his first Hip Hop single "PopoZao", which is Portuguese for "Back that sweet ass up here" or something to that effect. And here is Mr. Federline unveiling his new single to the world and jamming to it.

Now I hate to apply such a wise and worldly quote to a person such as Kevin Federline... But the old adage goes "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

We all thought you were a fool K-Fed... But now that you're shouting it from the rooftops we don't have to think it anymore; we know.

And what would a pop-culture phenomenon such as K-Fed be without the 2 cents of Conan O'brien. Here the host of Inside the Actor's Studio, James Lipton gives us his own version of "Popozao".


Conan rocks.

Stop This Politically Correct Bullshit!



British school bans raising hands

From UPI.
A school in London has banned children from raising their hands in class and teachers from calling on students with their hands raised.

"It is every child's instinct and every teacher's instinct as well because it is ingrained in us," said Andrew Buck, the school's principal.

"Some pupils are jiggling so much to attract the teacher's attention that it sometimes looks as if they need the lavatory, then when it is their turn they often don't know the answer. Boys -- and it is usually boys -- are seeking attention, so they put their hands up before they have had time to think about the question."

Buck said the same children often wave their arms in the air, but when teachers try to involve less adventurous pupils by choosing them instead, it leads to feelings of victimization, the Daily Telegraph reported Saturday.

To spare embarrassment of the students who do not know the answer, the school has incorporated a "phone a friend" system, allowing one child to nominate another to take the question instead.

What the hell is happening to the United Kingdom? First, failure became "Deferred Success" and now this. Let the kid get the answer wrong and correct them...

It's called LEARNING! NOT PAWNING THE QUESTION OFF ON OTHER STUDENTS! STUPID!!!
It truly confounds me.

Is Jack Layton the Video Professor?


Buy My Product.

At some point during the Canadian election campaign it struck me that Jack Layton looked very familiar. I had seen the New Democrat leader somewhere before... In a role that didn't involve some form of government. Then last week I saw it; and it clicked.

As I scanned the channels late one night I came across one of those charming Video Professor infomercials. I was amazed... John W. Scherer: the said Video Professor bares a striking resemblance to Jack Layton.

I am now convinced the two are in fact one and the same -- Pushing the social democratic agenda while hawking their shoddy wares. If this isn't a wake up call, I don't know what is.

But enough trite nonsense.

The election took place 1 week ago, on January 23rd. The Conservative Party won themselves a minority government. Although, the Prime Minister-Designate and myself disagree in terms of several social policies -- I wholeheartedly support the Tory platform that deals with fiscal, judicial and government reform. I hope they will be able to pursue these goals in the upcoming parliament.


Prime Minister-Designate Stephen Harper.

In theory, this minority government has the potential to be quite effective. None of the opposition parties want to call another election any time soon. The Liberals need a new leader with the impending resignation of Prime Minister Paul Martin, the NDP don't want to lose what ground they have made, and the Bloc doesn't want to lose any more support to the Grits or Tories in Quebec. That leaves a very big window, in which HOPEFULLY, the parties will be able to build consensus, since no one party holds the true majority of the power in parliament. They will have to work together, and everyone will be in check... So people can stop worry about the Tories destroying the country that they themselves founded.


Prime Minister Paul Martin is left scratching his head.

The government accountability measures, the GST reduction and the mandatory minimum sentences for gun-related crimes are all issues the other parties will go along with, or else they'll be shooting themselves in the foot. The Conservatives ran a great campaign, but now comes the hard part! I'm looking forward to seeing the Tories once again prove themselves able to lead Canada.

And that is that, I will try to update more regularly from now on.

Popozao!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!
