Dear Readers:

You see this sort of stuff published here as a joke, because I have a WARPED sense of humour, but unless the CBC is following our example, I don’t know what’s going on with them!

Well boys and girls, it seems the Mounties in Alberta have a new way of dealing with impaired drivers………………….., JUST SHOOT THEM!

An officer with the Wetaskiwin R.C.M.P.  detachment pulled over a vehicle near Ma Me O Beach, about 45 minutes south of Edmonton, around 9:30 p.m. local time on the suspicion that the driver was impaired.
“During the course of the confrontation the RCMP officer discharged several shots. Two males inside the vehicle were shot,” said Clif Purvis, director of the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT).
A 30-year-old man from Pigeon Lake was killed. A 41-year-old male, also from Pigeon Lake, was transported via air ambulance to Royal Alexandra Hospital where he remains in stable condition.

Saturday’s incident marked the second police shooting in Alberta in less than a week.
On Thursday, Mounties shot and wounded Curtis Hallock, who regularly appeared on the outdoor reality show “Mantracker,” during an altercation after pulling him over for suspected impaired driving.

Scientists in Europe have made a hamburger out of STEM CELLS, kids!
Unfortunately, it costs $300,000-…………………………., and that’s without fries and a shake!
Mark Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger after five years of research, hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help solve the food crisis and fight climate change.
I was just reading some of the latest bullshit and lies from the U.S. government about the N.S.A. and other things.
Seems to me that between the bickering between the Republicans and Democrats, the God-awful influence lobbyists and special interest groups (NRA) have, and the hubris displayed by Senators and Congressmen, the  United States system of government is completely fucked!

SPECIAL FEATURE. What was behind Boston bombing? Hilary Andersson reports for the Perspective Research Department and the Naked News!:

One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to publications espousing white supremacy and government conspiracy theories.

He also had reading material on mass killings.

Until now the Tsarnaev brothers were widely perceived as just self-styled radical jihadists.

Panorama has spent months speaking exclusively with friends of the bombers to try to understand the roots of their radicalisation.

‘Government conspiracies’

The programme discovered that Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed articles which argued that both 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were government conspiracies.

Another in his possession was about “the rape of our gun rights”.

Reading material he had about white supremacy commented that “Hitler had a point”.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev also had literature which explored what motivated mass killings and noted how the perpetrators murdered and maimed calmly.

There was also material about US drones killing civilians, and about the plight of those still imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.

‘A Muslim of convenience’

 Brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 –>

The suspected Boston bombers

The Tsarnaev brothers, ethnic Chechens, spent their early years moving around a troubled region of Russia torn by a violent Islamic insurgency.

But for the last decade they lived in Cambridge, near Boston.

The brothers’ friends told us Tamerlan turned against the country and became passionate about Islam after becoming frustrated when his boxing career faltered because he did not have American citizenship.

Their friends wouldn’t all speak openly because they were afraid of being wrongly viewed as associated with terrorism.

‘Mike’ spent a lot of time in the brothers’ flat.

“He (Tamerlan) just didn’t like America. He felt like America was just basically attacking all Middle Eastern countries…you know trying to take their oil.”

He (Tamerlan) just didn’t like America. He felt like America was just basically attacking all Middle Eastern countries.”
A spokesperson for Tamerlan’s mosque in Cambridge, Nicole Mossalam, said Tamerlan only prayed there occasionally. She portrayed him as an angry young man who latched onto Islam.

“As far connecting with the Islamic community here, to actually praying, being involved, doing acts of charity….all of those were pretty much lacking.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Tamerlan’s younger brother who has been charged with the bombings, scrawled a note shortly before his capture stating “We Muslims are one body. You hurt one you hurt us all.”

The brothers had been reading militant Islamic websites before the bombings.

Friends say the younger brother smoked copious amounts of pot and rarely prayed.

‘Tito’ told us Dzhokhar’s older brother dominated him and didn’t approve of his “party lifestyle”.

“He (Dzhokhar) was intimidated, that would probably be the best word. He took him very seriously. He was an authority.”

Radicalised by family?

The FBI has been investigating the brothers, and possible connections Tamerlan might have had in the troubled Russian republic of Dagestan which he visited last year.

The House Intelligence Committee in Washington is being briefed on his connections.

The committee chairman, Mike Rogers said he believes the brothers’ mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, was involved in his radicalisation.

“He had family members encouraging, we know that for sure,” he said.

Zubeidat denies the allegations.

Tamerlan was killed in April following a gun fight with police which ended when his younger brother ran him over while trying to escape.

Dzhokhar, recently brought to court, denied all charges.
