Port Stanley, on Lake Erie, is a favourite summer spot for thousands, and has a beach that is swarming with people on a warm, sunny day.
Not all those people are happy campers kids.
The OPP did something to piss of somebody, because at 3 a.m. last night somebody stole their boat and torched it!
(Revenge is a bitch folks.)
Don Cherry has once again been passed over for an “Order of Canada” trophy, or medal, or citation, or whatever it is they give out!
Grapes turned 80 in March and Hockey Night in Canada is no longer a CBC entity. Cherry is coming out of an incredible era of national pain where he more than anybody else helped a country grieve and cope with far too many losses in Afghanistan — and among our police and emergency services people, too.
If he can’t have it, who the heck else exemplifies Canada?
Well, the committee, which decides such things, have found some. Cherry’s name has been left off the list. (Chris Hadfield and Rick Mercer did make the list this year.)
Since this is Canada Day, and July 1 is supposed to be a day to celebrate Canadian identity, recent amendments to the Citizenship Act have redefined what it takes to be legally declared Canadian.
The Conservative Government’s Bill C-24 received Royal Assent on June 19, significantly changing the requirements to attain (or in some cases maintain) Canadian citizenship.
The changes require that permanent residents be physically present in the country for longer than before, in order to gain citizenship. The changes also give the government powers to revoke the citizenship of Canadians who have dual citizenship and are found guilty in terrorism or treason cases.
The new bill also gives the citizenship and immigration minister the power to revoke citizenship for people who have served in a foreign army or organization that fought against Canadian forces. This includes overseas extremist organizations.
In spite of all these changes it still doesn’t change the fact that when my parents came to this country the first thing they wanted to know was what their “obligations” were………………, toady everybody wants to know what their “rights” are!

Looking for the ultimate flag for Canada Day?
The Peace Tower flag could be all yours. Any Canadian living in the country can order one of the flags that fly at the highest point on Parliament Hill.

By the numbers
■7,900 Peace Tower and West/East Block flags given out since 1994.
■8,363 people on the waiting list for a Peace Tower flag.
■6,274 people on the waiting list for a West/East Block flag.
■281 people received a Peace Tower flag last year.
■2.3 metres by 4.6 metres are the dimensions of the Peace Tower flag.
But you won’t receive it in time for this year’s July 1st celebrations — or, frankly, anytime soon.
If you put your name on the federal government’s waiting list, it would be 2056 by the time you receive the coveted parcel in the mail.
The waiting list is 42 years for a piece of the Peace Tower.
The backlog has grown significantly over the past 20 years and the waiting list keeps getting longer.

Folks, General motors has had so many recalls, and is facing so many lawsuits that they might be back in bankruptcy court any time now!
The three U.S. car makers started to worry about the impact European and Japanese cars were making way back in the 70′s and have been trying to address manufacturing, reliability, and quality issues ever since.
It’s now been over forty years and they are no further ahead than they were then!
Your humble reporter saw a few articles on the weekend about what you should do with your ‘social’ sites in case you kick the bucket anytime soon! (Facebook, Pinterest, Google, Linked-In, Yahoo, etc.)
1144045-Cartoon-Of-A-Chorus-Line-Of-Naked-Men-Dancing-The-Can-Can-Royalty-Free-Vector-ClipartThere were long and complicated explanations about doing this, and doing that, and a convoluted list of steps to be taken after you shuffle off this mortal coil …………, but your ever practical servant has the best advice for situations like this!

Do nothing!
No fanfare, no chorus lines, and no dancing mourners/pallbearers!
Who cares, you’re DEAD!
(At best, let people leave all your shit up there as a sort of memorial!)
Loretta Luff was sitting inside her Langhorne home watching the Phillies game Sunday, her 6-year-old Dell laptop in her lap, when she began to smell something and heard a strange sound.
“The battery just exploded and it blew the laptop over,” the 72-year-old said.
Luff was able to bring the fires under control after pouring a bowl of water on the flames. Firefighters responding to her residence on the 200 block of Comly Avenue were able to put out the remaining hot spots. When the smoke cleared, burn marks were left on her desk, carpet, shirt and even her dog’s bed. The responding firefighters picked up the metal shards from the laptop that were scattered across the floor.
Folks, this is just one more reason why we here at the Perspective Research Department recommend that old folks not play with computers!


17865-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Nude-Middle-Aged-Cacuasian-Woman-With-Black-Curly-Hair-Preparing-To-Take-A-ShowerFire crews told The Perspective Naked News Department that Ginny M. Griffith, 34, was charged with aggravated arson after lighting a fire in order to kill a spider.
The woman told officers she used a cigarette lighter in order to ignite some towels on fire, and burn the spider.
Instead, Griffith ended up lighting her duplex on fire.

images0BJARMJPCrews found multiple points of origin for the fire, which they quickly put out.
They say the duplex really only suffered smoke damage.
No word on if the spider made it out safely.
Folks, here’s another list of stuff that the government is doing to its citizens that is not only ILLEGAL, but not very nice either!
This morning, James Clapper finally responded to a request from Senator Ron Wyden concerning the number of such backdoor searches using US identifiers that were done by various government agencies. And, surprisingly, it’s redaction free. The big reveal is… that it’s not just the NSA doing these searches, but the CIA and FBI as well. This is especially concerning with regards to the FBI. This means that the FBI, who does surveillance on Americans, is spying on Americans communications that were collected by the NSA and that they’re doing so without anything resembling a warrant. Oh, and let’s make this even worse: the FBI isn’t even tracking how often it does this. It’s just doing it willy nilly:
The FBI does not track how many queries it conducts using U.S. person identifiers. The FBI is responsible for identifying and countering threats to the homeland, such as terrorism pilots and espionage, inside the U.S. Unlike other IC agencies, because of its domestic mission, the FBI routinely deals with information about US persons and is expected to look for domestic connections to threats emanating from abroad, including threats involving Section 702 non-US. person targets. To fulfill its mission and avoid missing connections within the information lawfully in its possession, the FBI does not distinguish between U.S. and non- U.S. persons for purposes of querying Section 702 collection. It should be noted that the FBI does not receive all of Section 702 collection; rather, the FBI only requests and receives a small percentage of total Section 702 collection and only for those selectors in which the FBI has an investigative interest.
Moreover, because the FBI stores Section 702 collection in the same database as its “traditional” FISA collection, a query of “traditional” FISA collection will also query Section 702 collection. In addition, the FBI routinely conducts queries across its databases in an effort to locate relevant information that is already in its possession when it opens new national security investigations and assessments. Therefore, the FBI believes the number of queries is substantial. However, only FBI personnel trained in the Section 702 minimization procedures are able to View any Section 702 collection that is responsive to any query.
Got that? Basically, the FBI often asks the NSA for a big chunk of data that the NSA probably shouldn’t have in the first place — including tons of Americans’ communications, and the FBI gets to dump it into the same database that it is free to query. And the FBI tracks none of this, other than to say that it believes that there are a “substantial” number of such queries. This would seem to be a pretty blatant attempt to end run around the 4th Amendment, giving the FBI broad access to searching through the communications of Americans with what appears to be almost no oversight.
