Essential job requirements to be a CPC or OPC Minister…

1. Publicly state that evolution should not be taught in schools…

Check

2. Tweet to the world that evolution should not be considered a “fact”.

Check



3. Make slanderdous and way-over-top statements about Ontario’s school cirriculum

Check

Yup. And add in the:

– mandatory climate-change denying blathering;

– Jenny McCarthy anti-vax fan club membership, and;

– the firm belief that the lunar missions were shot on a Hollywood set

And you have the basics to make it as a rock-solid OPC or CPC Minister!

He forgot the dinosaurs!!!!

Trudeau KILLS me sometimes!

Descriptions of creationism can make creationism seem sooooo silly when penned by a talented writer…

Another reason why I am happy to be a Canadian…

According to Gallup, 40% of Americans believe that humans were created by a “god” in the past 10,000 years while this number is only 14% north of the border.

I love Americans. I truly do. They are an amazing people. But I just don’t understand them sometimes. They voted in Dubya twice. Indebted themselves into oblivion. And 4 out of ten of them, like our own Stockwell Day, think that humans played with dinosaurs.

A cousin of mine who is an ex-pat Québécois living in Tennessee, once remarked to me on Facebook that in the States, unlike Canada, religion and faith is everywhere. You can’t get away from it. With data like these, I think I understand what he said a bit better.

But still – wow. What a difference.

And I bet that if you removed the Alberta respondents, the 14% would drop into the single digits.

But if we’re so smart, why:

  • Do we keep voting in the ReformCons?
  • Have Ontario voters not pushed governments to abolish the separate schools system?
  • Do we have voting rates in the 50’s?
  • Does our weather suck so much?

OK – the last point is just me whining.

Excellent observation…

Found this at challenging the commonplace

BC AB MB/SK ON PQ ATL
Human beings evolved from
less advanced life forms
over millions of years
64% 51% 50% 60% 66% 64%
God created human beings
in their present form
within the last 10,000 years
21% 31% 39% 25% 17% 28%

I’m moving to Québec!

Harperites ain’t so “handsome”

And so it begins.

PS union leaders are meeting with the President of the Treasury Board, Stockwell “cavemen fought dinosaurs” Day to talk about what they should expect in the next budget, due to be released on March 4th. And federal public servants are justifiably afraid of what the budget may have in store for the PS pension plan – already described by Jimbo Flahtery as “handsome”.

I’ve gone on and on about the PS pension plan, as have others. And if you are in the PS, you pretty much like the status quo, but if you are not, you pretty much think that the pesnions are already way too generous for a buncha lazy good-for-nothing bureaucrats.

So I’m not going to rant on and on about this yet again, except to say this:

Mr. Day, changing the rules of the game is OK if those new rules apply to new employees. They can make the decision whether or not to pursue as a vocation, a career in the PS. The rules of the game are up front and transparent.

But if you dare to change the rules for those of us who have worked hard under the assumption that what we signed on for would still be in place when we retire, then, Mr. Day, you will be in for a fight.  Mark my words.
