Carbon tax gouged Ontarians out of $1.5B so far in 2017

Did you know Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government has taken $1.5 billion extra out of our pockets since the start of this year?

By “extra” I mean money her government wasn’t taking from us in 2016, from all sources of government revenue.

This $1.5 billion extra — $1,501,908,017 to be precise — comes from Ontario’s new cap and trade carbon pricing scheme.

African-American university students offended by cotton

The president of Lipscomb University issued a public apology after an untold number of African American students were offended by a dinner table centerpiece made from stalks of cotton.

Yes, good readers – a group of college students was triggered by the fabric of our lives.

Hobby Lobby’s ‘offensive’ decoration has gone bonkers viral — 33k Facebook reactions and counting

Daniell Rider, a Hobby Lobby consumer, found a decoration at one of their stores so offensive, she shared the image on Facebook requesting that they remove the decor from their shelves.

Rider on Thursday shared a photo of a shelf with glass bottles containing what appear to be replicas of raw cotton plants.

What I learned from the Antifa handbook: For starters, you won’t believe who is defined as a ‘fascist’

And now here comes author Mark Bray – a lecturer at Dartmouth College and an Occupy Wall Street organizer – attempting to give philosophical justification to a movement so certain of its righteousness that it’s not going to let a little thing like free speech get in the way.

Bray spends most of his time tracing the history of the movement, but finally gets to the heart of the matter, and the argument isn’t hard to follow. In essence: tolerance and reason don’t work, and you don’t wait for a small problem to get bigger, so let’s start beating heads.

California Dems Passed A Resolution Demanding Trump Apologize For Presidency

The resolution was part of a larger string of bills and resolutions passed by the Democratic-controlled legislature that aimed to define the progressive state as the “leader of the resistance.”

The governing body will ask the president “to publicly apologize to all Americans for his racist and bigoted behavior,” according to the resolution. Democrats also attempted to force the president to release his full tax returns, in addition to approving a measure that legally supports sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

    Why couldn’t we have made Japanese people pick our cotton for us? Or maybe even Koreans.

      The first North American to enslave black slaves was himself black, and a former indentured servant.

      Trump needs to execute all three branches of the entire California government, just after he executes the entire 9th circuit court of appeals.

    Love the picture. Sums them up beautifully.

    The Liberal Party puppets in the media, are excited that little Justin is heading for the UN this week. Apparently he will be talking about gender equity, the poor muslim terrorists in Burma, and the benefits of globalization. I’m sure Canadian voters will be drooling at the prospect, at what socks he will be wearing and how cool he is.

    ‘Offensive’ cotton decoration:
    Antifa and the Left in general are playing the Muslim game of being continually offended at anything and demanding the ‘offender’ to adapt (submit). Never the other way round. The purpose is to keep their enemy off-balance and on the defensive until it will be afraid to even open its mouth.
    If the Right doesn’t go on the offensive, it will lose for at least one generation.

      Now just a cotton pickin’ minute….

        I am beginning to cotton on to what I am allowed to say and what is racist.

      Tell them they’re crazy and laugh at them is the solution for now. If that doesn’t work we’ll have to start shooting them. I think it’s what they want. It seems to me that they are trying to incite violence. When we finally give it to them, they’re not going to like the results.

      Shoe shine ban next up on the agenda.

      • Ego

        And you won’t be allowed to look a colored person in the eye because showing the whites of your eyes is racist.

        • A Hamilton Guy

          But what about those black bastards who sold them to those evil white guys.

    • ontario john

      Does this mean I can’t use Cottenelle toilet paper anymore?

    • Frances

      So these purists will only wear man-made fibres because cotton is the root of all evil? But aren’t man-made fibres made from evil oil/natural gas? Oops.

  • canminuteman

    Ref second last picture. You’re pulling to the right. You need to work on your trigger control, or you need to adjust your sights.

    • Them was ticker shots. Note no pull on the head holes.

    Parsons Green Station London Underground attack
    An 18-year-old Iraqi refugee, who is believed to have planted the device on a Tube train, and a 21-year-old from Syria, named as Yahyah Farroukh, were arrested under the Terrorism Act following Friday’s blast.

    Both are believed to have spent time being fostered by Penelope and Ronald Jones, aged 71 and 88 respectively, who previously received MBEs for services to children and families.

    But investigators are also probing whether the two men met each other abroad, either in Calais or elsewhere on the migrant route to Britain — or in the extremist heartlands of Syria and Iraq.

    Civilization, one could argue, is little more than people getting along with each other through speech and negotiation. The Dems and their friends in Antifa are therefore advocating the time-honored tradition of “I don’t like you or what you’re saying so I’m going to bash your skull in.” It’s the anti-thesis of civilization, and it seems to be historically humans’ more natural mode of interaction. It’s nothing new, that’s for sure.

    Clearly wearing cotton is a microaggression and all cotton must be banned!

      Worst of all are “cotton balls”! Think of all those poor cottons walking around without any!

    Not One Madrassa, Not One Mosque, Not One Muslim must be left in our once green and pleasant land. 3(NOM).

    Either they must be scared into self-repatriation, ejected by force or eradicated.

    It really is as simple and dreadful as that. 3(NOM).
