Gays, socialists, tree huggers, left wing nuts, affirmative action affectionados, and anyone else that has sort of a left leaning tilt to their jib is invited to join another fun protest kids!

It’s one of the most highly anticipated films of the upcoming holiday movie season, though “Ender’s Game” now has a considerable amount of controversy to go with the hype.
Geeks OUT has launched an online protest of the film due to author Orson Scott Card being an outspoken opponent of gay marriage. Called “Skip Ender’s Game,” the boycott urges potential audiences to steer clear of the film, which is based on Card’s popular 1985 novel.

“Do NOT see this movie! Do not buy a ticket at the theater, do not purchase the DVD, do not watch it on-demand,” Geeks OUT officials write.“Ignore all merchandise and toys. However much you may have admired his books, keep your money out of Orson Scott Card’s pockets.
(Ender’s Game” follows the adventures of Ender Wiggin, a gifted young boy who’s trained at an advanced military school to lead the attack against the second wave of an alien invasion that left the Earth decimated 70 years earlier. The film, directed by Gavin Hood and starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin, and Hailee Steinfeld, will hit theaters on November 1.)
Geeks OUT is organizing a series of “Skip Ender’s Game” events in New York, Orlando, Seattle, and other major U.S. cities to coincide with the movie’s debut this November.
Listen folks, personally, I don’t care if this guy is anti gay marriage, a fan of bestiality, or a celibate monk…………….., that has nothing to do with whether I want to see this movie.
This is another reason not to trust hospitals, boys and girls: In October 2009, Colleen S. Burns was taken to the emergency room at St. Joseph’s Hospital Center, suffering from a drug overdose. Although a nurse told doctors that Burns was recovering from her overdose, those same doctors pronounced her dead.
A call was placed to her family informing them that Burns had passed away, and the family subsequently agreed to have her removed from life support and gave the hospital clearance to harvest her organs.
But Burns was not dead. In fact, a number of signs clearly pointed to her being alive. When a nurse performed a mandatory reflex test on Burns, her toes curled downward. She appeared to be breathing independently of a hospital respirator, and her lips and tongue were said to have moved moments before doctors prepared to remove her organs.
Nonetheless, the nurse then followed instructions to give Burns a powerful sedative, a seemingly unnecessary move if the patient were actually dead.
Thankfully, Burns awoke moments before doctors were going to cut her open to remove the organs from her presumed-dead body.
“Despite this sequence of events,” said a federal report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, “intensive objective peer review and root cause analysis of the case was not done by the hospital’s quality assurance program until prompted by the Department of Health.”
“They were just kind of shocked themselves,” Burns’ mother, Lucille Kuss, told the paper when asked how doctors responded to the morbid mistake. “It came as a surprise to them as well.”
It’s unlikely that Burns’ case was entirely isolated. A report from the American Association for Justice claims that preventable medical errors are the sixth largest cause of death
The hospital was sanctioned for its actions and cited for a number of mistakes that placed the patient’s health in jeopardy. But in a development that is nearly as shocking as the mistakes themselves, the hospital was only fined a total of $22,000. Burns herself declined to sue the hospital after the incident even though the hospital, whose motto is “A Higher Level of Care,” never even explained to her why the mistake had occurred.
Remember a few years ago when they had a movie about this guy who went through an operation fully conscious…………………….., but paralyzed!!!!

Good news folks, London Ontario is the ‘cougar’ capital of Canada!

This sounded great at first, until I realized that cougars liked YOUNGER men, so any of them interested in your long suffering reporter would have to be at least in their late sixties…………, or older!

HALIFAX – Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry is releasing two reports today into the case of Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh.
Landry received the final reports last month from the Public Prosecution Service and the RCMP, but needed time to review them before making them public.
The review by the Public Prosecution Service was ordered after the Supreme Court of Canada upheld a lower court’s decision to quash 17 sexual convictions against MacIntosh dating back to the 1970s, saying the Crown took too long to bring the accused sex offender to trial.
Just a minute here folks, a person can be charged with a sex crime twenty or thirty years after the fact,  so how come they throw a charge out because it took too long to bring the guy to trial?
LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. – Police say they’re treating the Lac-Megantic disaster area as a “crime scene” and they could lay charges in connection with a tragedy that has killed about 50 people.
Quebec provincial police Insp. Michel Forget revealed that police are not leaning towards terrorism as a hypothesis, but are more likely exploring the possibility of criminal negligence.
About time!
TORONTO – It seems The Rascals are “Groovin’” like never before.
More than 40 years after they split, the original lineup of the American soul-rockers are back together, performing in the “Once Upon a Dream” stage show that recently sold out on Broadway and runs at Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre from Aug. 13 to 25.
And lead singer Eddie Brigati says they have a special quality the New Jersey-based foursome didn’t have back in the ’60s, when they rose to fame with hits including “Groovin’,” “Good Lovin’,” “It’s a Beautiful Morning” and “How Can I Be Sure.”
“The magic of it, the power of it, is that it’s clearer than ever, it’s more professional, and there’s a discipline that I think is a special gift about it,” Brigati, 67, said Tuesday in an interview after a Q&A with fans and members of the media.
And your humble reporter looks just like these guys…….,  OLD!
How far would you go to quit smoking,  boys and girls?
A Turkish man has literally locked his head in a cage as a last ditch attempt to quit the habit.

There is a rumour going round that he also put a chastity belt on his daughter!
