This must be killing the Euroweenies and nay-sayers.
The man replacing the mayor of Baghdad — who was assassinated for his pro-American loyalties — says he is not worried about his ties to Washington.
In fact, he’d like to erect a monument to honor President Bush in the middle of the city.
Wind generation propaganda:
... and wind power facts.
That giant three-bladed propeller at the Canadian National Exhibition hasn’t quite gone from White Elephant to Cash Cow with the disbursement of $32,000 in dividends to investors, but it’s a welcome breath of fresh air for alternative energy proponents.
They suggest that if Germany presses ahead with its plan to double the number of wind turbines, annual energy costs for consumers will rise from €1.4 billion to €5.4 billion

Mark says voter turnout is going to be just fine, despite the made for TV bombs of the day.
Turnout in the Kurdish north and Shia south will be higher than in the last American, British or Canadian elections. Legitimate enough for ya?

Like you needed another day care horror story to convince you that kennels are for dogs, and not for kids.
Chantel Patterson is demanding answers after her six-month-old son was left alone for about three hours in a closed day care Thursday night.
Dollars to donuts this woman won’t give raising her kid herself a second thought, even after this insane story.

More on the de-population of Europe.
Today, children no longer represent investments; instead, they have become pets - objects of luxury consumption. However, the pet market segment is very competitive.

...of being able to defend your property and life.
ATLANTA, Georgia (AP)—When two men walked into a popular country store outside Atlanta, announced a holdup and fired a shot, owners Bobby Doster and Gloria Turner never hesitated. The pair pulled out their own pistols and opened fire.
In Canada, we can only imagine.
A comprehensive post on the problem in the US - it appears they have the same problem as we do in Toronto.
JEFF JARVIS ON THE HOMELESS:
And the real issue isn’t homelessness. It’s insanity. The laws in this country make it impossible to commit and help even the obviously and often the dangerously insane.
I say that One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is as much at fault as any politician, for it made the institution frightening and the people who run it bad guys.

The question is now down to timing.
Global warming has yet to take effect in Toronto, if the last two weeks are any indication.
I married a woman just like this. I love the traditional type - it’s too bad they are so undervalued by today’s left-lib media.
I know that I’ll never be able to drop my child off each day for someone else to raise.
I know that a stranger will not be the one to hear my child’s first words or watch as my child takes his first steps.
I know that a stranger will not be the one to put a Band-Aid on my baby’s scraped knee, and I certainly know that a stranger will not kiss it better.
Most importantly, my child will know this, too.
After all, climbing the corporate ladder to become CEO or president pales in comparison with earning the treasured title of Mommy.
More nonense: Why couldn’t Jules stay on until a replacement is was named?
MIKE BOYD is to be the next chief of the Toronto Police. But Boyd, who will take over from Julian Fantino on March 1,
I heard they want to save money by getting cops out of cars and into bikes. Great idea in winter weather, left wing-nuts. We could call them Copsickles.

Is Martin telling us that all he cares about and the country cares about is gay marriage? How can so few people control the government’s agenda, with such a lame issue?
Prime Minister Paul Martin threatened yesterday to take the country to the polls in his fight to defend same-sex marriage—a strike at Stephen Harper that the Conservative Leader called an attempt to cow Liberal MPs into voting with the government.
There must be a million other issues that Canadians care about more than that. I know I am against it, and most others could care less, so why can’t we drop it and ignore the screaming left?

The real crisis facing the modern world is the depopulation of the first world - as Steyn writes so beautifully.
But the state - at least in its modern European welfare incarnation - needs children as least as much as those old-time Jews did. And the problem with the European state is that, like Elisabeth, it’s barren. Collectively barren, I hasten to add. Individually, it’s made up of millions of fertile women, who voluntarily opt for no children at all or one designer kid at 39.
The war in 100 years will be between Muslims and either China and/or India.
I like our royal traditions, but it really is time to get rid of her.
Turns out, Clarkson’s commitment was mainly to her own leisure.
Apparently I’m not the only one who loves Idol.
TV viewers couldn’t wait for their “American Idol” fix, turning out 33.5 million strong for its season debut.
Having it once a year and not over-milking the idea helps. Restraint works - a conservative concept.
The best part is watching the delusional fools be, well, delusional about their abilities.
The parade of fat (black) people is also incredible. (North) America has a serious weight problem.
The master hypocrite Michael Moore at it again.
Filmmaker Michael Moore’s (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York’s JFK airport Wednesday night.
Kids have always done drugs, but with the new Liberal attitude of legally turning a blind eye, the message to kids is clear. Since parents don’t parent any more, the light is always green to partake.
MARIJUANA USE among Toronto students is at an all-time high and it’s affecting everything from their driving to their long-term health, according to figures found in a drug-use study unveiled yesterday.

These guys are lucky they weren’t floating off the Canadian coast. I guess they could have hitched a ride on the barge bringing over the sub.
“As we were floating in the life raft, one of the divers just popped over the edge of the raft as casual as could be,” Glynn says. “He was, like, ‘Hi, how are you doing? Great, we’re going to get you out of here.’ And, from that moment on, we were in the hands of the navy.”
As good an article as any on homosexual marriage.
Of all the phony arguments for gay marriage, the phoniest is the argument that it is a matter of equal rights. Marriage is not a right extended to individuals by the government. It is a restriction on the rights they already have.
Zimbabwe is a mess, still, and injustices like this are still going on.
If you are one of the average Canadians or Americans who responded to Canadafreeepress.com’s request for emails of hope and encouragement to Heather Bennett during the recent holidays, it worked.
Canada should be sponsoring this guy to come settle here. We need people like him.
Downing has worked the streets for 40 years, and says things are worse now than ever before.
They should go en masse to today’s committee meeting—and next month’s council—and give councillors a sampling of the garbage left behind by the tramps. This anarchy, this thumbing of a dirty nose at other people’s property, has to stop.
The Trudeau legacy lives on, causing more damage than even he could have imagined.

Buchanan has some harsh words for CBS and Rather, whose career is ending in a pile of burnt ashes.
Where is the outrage of Rather, whose reputation has been ruined and career destroyed by the criminals who cooked up the fakes? Last September, Rather said that if the memos turned out to be fake, he would love to break that story. Why hasn’t he? Why hasn’t CBS turned the dogs loose on those who did this to it?

Why can’t people leave nature alone?
“It should remain an exception. It is at the limit of ethical guidelines because it is at the limit of nature. ... We all get old. Healthwise, it is risky for both the mother and the child who deserves to have parents to raise her,” Muresan said.

One thing the feminists forgot to tell women: you can’t fight thousands of years of evolution when it comes to men.
“The hypothesis,” Brown said, “is that there are evolutionary pressures on males to take steps to minimize the risk of raising offspring that are not their own.”
