Christianity is on the run in the Middle-East folks!
Won’t be long before Israel is the only place they will be safe!
“Iraqi Christians flee cities captured by extremists known to kill non-Muslims:” That was the stark message Christians in the Syrian city of Raqqa received when ultra-fundamentalist Sunni extremists, proclaiming themselves to be members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), seized power and launched a reign of terror against Shiites and Christians that has included beheadings and at least three crucifixions.
Aware of ISIS’ ferocious reputation for murder and mayhem, thousands of Christians who lived in Mosul and the surrounding Nineveh Plain fled in panic when ISIS rebels captured Iraq’s second largest city from government forces on June 10. Many of those who escaped have sought refuge in the Christian enclave in the Kurdish city of Irbil, only an hour’s drive away from Mosul.
“All who are left there now are a few handicapped or sickly Christians,” said a Chaldean Catholic nun wearing a blue habit whose religious community fled Mosul on foot, walking north for four hours on June 10 along with thousands of other Christian and Sunni Muslim refugees. They all feared persecution at the hands of the insurgents, who follow a harsh seventh-century interpretation of the Koran that demands not only that women mostly stay indoors, but that church bells must never be rung, crosses must never be displayed and Christians must pay a “gold tax” in return for their lives.
The nun pleaded repeatedly that her name and her order not be disclosed, lest the rebels read her comments on the Internet. “They’ve taken down every monument in Mosul, whether they depict Iraqi political figures or Catholics,” she said in impeccable French that she polished up on during a year studying in Montreal.
And since we mentioned Israel…………!
Folks, it still strikes me as strange that members of the “Pride” thing in Toronto are still bitchin’ about Israel, and all the while it is the only country in the Middle-East that doesn’t jail, or even KILL gays!
Strange, eh?

515046749559600513Is it just me, or does any else see something wrong with this ad?
(It’s been showing up on a lot of sites lately.)
Are this woman’s tits photo-shopped, blown up, magnified, or what?
Why isn’t she falling on her face?
(Why can’t more women wear sweaters?)

Oh, and stranger still ….., all those assholes that want to close down the Oil Sands!
untitledEven if they manage to get some pipelines stopped, the oil will just be shipped by more expensive, more dangerous and more environmentally hazardous methods …………., like trucks and trains!
Don’t believe me, take a look at Lac Megantic!
(And don’t forget, we already have over 80,000 km of pipelines in Canada, so what difference will another 1200 km make?)

When I was a kid all the nuts with soap boxes went to St. Jame’s Park at Church and King in Toronto to preach religion and politics, but now the scene has moved a bit further west to Dundas Square.
It’s Sunday afternoon on a lovely, sunny summer’s day, and Rudolph Gonsalves wants to talk about the Apocalypse.
rudolph_gonsalves_jpg_size_xxlarge_letterboxWith flowing white hair and a shaggy beard to match, the small-framed 65-year-old sits on a concrete slab at the base of a lamppost, kitty-corner from the bustling Yonge-Dundas Square, while steps away, a sweaty man with a ball cap between his feet dances and sings ’N Sync songs a cappella.
This is where Gonsalves comes to save souls. “People are wandering like sheep without a shepherd,” he says from his perch on the street corner. “There’s an impending judgment coming. . . . I’m trying to say, ‘Hey man, there’s more to life than what you see here. It’s temporal. It’s not going to last.’ ”
Gonsalves is a regular fixture at the glittery downtown intersection, having frequented the spot for more than three decades to preach his beliefs to whoever will listen.
Remember when the big joke about the Canadian Armed Forces was that the West Edmonton Mall had more submarines than the Canadian navy?
Well kids, after having the third largest navy in the WORLD at the end of the Second World War, the Canadian navy is getting close to not being a navy at all!
The Royal Canadian Navy has decided to keep one of its few destroyers tied up after assessing a string of rust patches on its hull and concluding it may not be safe to send out to sea.
Capt. Peter Ryan said naval engineers and architects reviewed the corrosion in an area that stretches between a couple of decks on HMCS Iroquois, which was sidelined in April after the rust was detected.
They are now trying to determine if the aging ship should be repaired or retired, leaving the navy fleet further diminished as more than a dozen other vessels undergo regular maintenance, modernization or repairs.

Pope Francis had a message for the Mafia on the weekend, telling the organized crime syndicate they are excommunicated.
lead_largeSpeaking to a mass of tens of thousands of people in Sibari, located at the arch of the boot, the pontiff labeled the powerful syndicate an example of “the adoration of evil” and a force to be fought against.
Those who in their lives follow this path of evil, as mafiosi do, are not in communion with God. They are excommunicated.”
Now the next thing he should do is excommunicate Justin Trudeau!
(Don’t get me wrong folks, I am personally pro-choice, but we here at Perspective don’t like Trudeau’s high handed approach to the whole issue, and his unilateral declaration that MP’s can no longer vote their conscience!)

Found with litter-mates in woods near Atlanta, the 8-month-old mutt was adopted by Kim Dillenbeck of Helena, Ala. Pig runs and plays with other animals despite have a shortened spine, misshappen hips and no neck. She hops like a frog to stand up and walks with a high-shouldered gait that resembles a gorilla. Unable to swing her head side to side, Pig spins her whole body to see what’s beside her. JAY REEVES — AP Photo

The Perspective Research Department ran into this tid-bit during our investigative reporting:
Commercial products like Febreze are great for getting rid of odors, but personally, I hate the chemical smell. Vodka is a great alternative. All you need is some cheap vodka and a spray bottle. Test on an inconspicuous area first. If all turns out okay, spray away. When the vodka evaporates, it takes some of the smell with it.
(Let me tell ya something folks, I disagree ……., back in my drinking days vodka didn’t hide anything!)
Well kids, one of the grandest claims in cosmology could be crumbling. The detection of gravitational wave imprints in the universe’s background radiation, announced amid much fanfare in March, was originally described as a discovery “as big as it gets.”
Other scientists began questioning whether the team had properly estimated the amount of polarization resulting from foreground galactic dust, which can also produce B-modes.
(“Well it’s good to know that I’m not the only one that has a problem with dust!”)
Using a telescope in Antarctica, the BICEP2 team searched for evidence supporting the theory of inflation, which says that the universe expanded exponentially in the first moments after the big bang.

And finally: Many of the Justice Department’s finest legal minds are falling prey to a garden-variety Internet scam.
An internal survey shows almost 2,000 staff were conned into clicking on a phoney “phishing” link in their email, raising questions about the security of sensitive information.
The department launched the mock scam in December as a security exercise, sending emails to 5,000 employees to test their ability to recognize cyber fraud.
The emails looked like genuine communications from government or financial institutions, and contained a link to a fake website that was also made to look like the real thing.
Across the globe, an estimated 156 million of these so-called “phishing” emails are sent daily, and anyone duped into clicking on the embedded web link risks transferring confidential information — such as online banking passwords — to criminals.
