I used to buy a lot on Ebay, often I would spend more there than in local stores, only to find repeatedly Ebay supported crooks that have high sales, because its more profitable to scam people than be honest with them.

I have often thought about making a list of all their dirty trick and deals, but ended up thinking Ebay isn’t worth that much time.

Today’s rant is about how Ebay helps liars deal with how long you have to wait to get your order before you can file a claim for money back. It used to be waiting … Read the rest

Hey guys and gals, in the spirit of fishing (yes its on right now) the river is once again filling up with both salmon and those folks who love eating salmon. I am not going to get into the politics of fishing in this post other than to take a swipe at the jackasses who are destroying our rivers, and our salmon and stealhead.

Part of the problem is hidden in a money making gimmick, that gimmick is dividing those who love fishing into two groups, those who fish for food (100% aboriginal) and those of us just entertaining ourselves … Read the rest

Yes, I love food, music and many other things aside from politics, I hate politics, its a necessary evil, food is the opposite, its both necessary and extremely delightful.

Reading recently about how Vancouver police intend to take this noise seriously, yeah right! What a joke “a ticket of $109, plus three points.”  Its easier to get busted for having a tiny dog on your lap than it is to see one of thousands of bikes and trucks busted, not only are they too loud, but they make an added effort to be even louder.

Police? Do they have shares in LOUD mufflers?

Is it a prerequisite for police to be deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to these perpetrators?

When you talk to these bikers they pass … Read the rest

I recall the days when gay meant happy had nothing to do with peoples gender, and racism was defined as “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.”

George Orwell in his book “Animal Farm” had his own way of expressing racism.

As soon as the animals have expelled the humans, the dream of equality on Animal Farm begins to crumble.  At first, it is decreed that all animals are equal.  The animals make commandments to enforce this idea.  However, soon the pigs begin to rewrite history.  Read the rest

For the most part I am really not a cellphone addict or even much of a cellphone user, but it seemed to me that while I am in the Philippines it would make more sense to support the local economy, and buy local so to speak. I did learn that this more affordable cellphone is very popular here in the Philippines, however after buying one for a local citizen I was shocked to learn it comes with a non stop set of full screen advertising.

More puzzling was that these ads were not targeting China, or the USA, but these … Read the rest

“On Jan. 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex, a formidable union of defense contractors and the armed forces.”

Look at the age of these kids, what kind of parents sends their kids into harms way? Is this a peaceful protest?

Yesterday was an amazing day in the Philippines, for days now we have been bombarded with updates on Super Typhoon Haima. At its peak, Haima packed winds of up to 315 kilometers per hour (195 mph), the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

At least 7 people were killed Sunday as Sarika crossed the archipelago north of Manila as a Category 4 storm. Almost 10,000 people were displaced, according to aid organization … Read the rest

Canada's Joffrey Baratheon

Canada’s Joffrey Baratheon

thronesIn a most unbelievable twist in the game of thrones Canadian style it now appears the young Trudeau outsmarted, outwitted and outplayed both Harper and Mulcair. Unfortunately he outplayed Canadian voters as well.

Without a doubt Trudeau quickly discovered the power of the social media campaign and that he himself missed the boat when Mulcair signed on to the election reform movement. As the NDP started in the election as top dog, the Liberals had to do something extraordinary to steal the thunder away from the NDP.

Without question it does not take a rocket scientist to … Read the rest
