Granted, the three innocent torture victims were never charged with anything, but they’re still Muslims!
[T]he Liberals…paid…$31 million to three…Muslim migrants accused of links to terrorism. That’s what Trudeau is good for—paying money to terrorists.

What! The future’s over already?
Under Premiers McGuinty and Wynne, Ontarians were told that green energy was the future and would supply the province with jobs and affordable electricity. Neither of which turned out to be true.

Timothy McVeigh, for one, never attended a riot in his whole career
Conservatives believe in the rule of law, it’s why you never see them riot. But leftists will riot at any opportunity….

And by virtually the same, I mean not remotely similar
“When it’s legal, despite the…allowable age to consume, kids are going to harvest leaves, kids are going to experiment. I think what we’re doing, it’s the same, virtually the same as putting fentanyl on a shelf within reach of kids. Having plants in the home, it’s just as wacky, it’s just as unacceptable, it’s just as dangerous for Canadian society.”

How liberals disrespect chicks and broads
“[S]ome of these guys seem to have figured out that actually being a liberal progressive is a great way to meet vulnerable chicks and hit on them. I mean, Harvey Weinstein seems to use all those classy movies with Meryl Streep and Judy Dench as cover for hitting on the broads who come into his orbit. The same thing I think you can say about Charlie Rose at PBS.”

Oh, yeah, and fuck you, Ray Bradbury!
“Love what you do and do what you love.” Ray Bradbury. This thought from the well-known writer are words to live by as far as veteran broadcaster Carol Anne Meehan is concerned. [M]ost of her time as a professional broadcaster is with 1310 Ottawa…. “Right now, I’m happy and busy and learning,” says Carol Anne. “Life’s challenging and it’s exciting…. Life’s what you make it…. You can’t expect miracles unless you put one foot in front of the other and carry on…. Everyone has a gift to give. Mine is telling stories.”

Carol Anne Meehan is…resigning from the afternoon slot on radio station 1310 News on Nov. 17—ironically the date she was let go from CTV Ottawa in 2015…. Meehan said she found she was monitoring news constantly—seven days a week, morning, noon and night…. “I’m watching news at dinner, I’ve got the computer on in the morning, the paper’s flipping around, I’m watching every channel I can,” she said, lamenting the fire-hose of information that daily flows in the digital age. And, after being a neutral reader and recorder of the news for her entire adult life, she was now a host required to have a sparkling on-air personality and interesting opinions every day, not to mention an instant expert on an ever-shifting list of topics…. So, after 18 months, she’s turning off the microphone….

Elder, older? Let’s call the whole thing off
Words are powerful. They have the ability to inspire. They also have the ability to stigmatize…. So, the influential Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS) recently decided it’s time to redefine aging…. In an effort to hit the reset button, they announced that: “words like (the) aged, elder(s), (the) elderly, and seniors should not be used” in their publication… Instead, “older adults” or “older persons” are now the preferred ways to refer to those over the age of 65.

On the other hand, if someone wants to cop to a fart in a crowded elevator, who’s to argue with them?
The next time you hold your phone at arm’s length and awkwardly grin for a selfie, please send an imaginary royalty to Paris Hilton….
“11 years ago today,” she declared on Twitter, “Me & Britney invented the selfie….” By wrongly claiming to have invented the selfie, what Paris Hilton is doing is contributing to the fake news and bald-faced lying that is now endemic. She is proving history is under constant assault these days by our reflexive thirst for instant, real-time blasts of info that may not be tethered to reality.

Donald Trump included
By now you are probably well aware that People magazine has named Blake Shelton, the 41-year-old country singer…2017’s Sexiest Man Alive…. I am going to go out on a very long limb here and suggest that many of the people expressing disbelief on social media…are the same people who could not have foreseen a reality in which Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.
