My Hometown Edmonton Boys kick Taliban Ass

Thanks to fellow Edmontonian NastyBoy for finding this one.
Alpha Company, 2nd Platoon, Red Devils, from Edmonton, Canada conduct a dawn raid on a Taliban compound.

In case the link's broke:

You're not going to see video like this on that pansy CBC network. From Day One Canadians took part in the freeing, and then re-building of Afganistan. Except for a nasty willingness to emphasize our casualties, our midstream-media has ignored their efforts, content that they're doing their bit to undermine them.

My daughter forwarded this one to me:

A nun who worked with a home-care health agency was out making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a gasoline station was only a block away. But when she asked the attendant to loan her a jerry-can, he told her that someone else had already borrowed it,
and had not yet returned.
Since she was on her way to see a patient, she decided not to wait. Walking back, She dug through the medical supplies in her car, and returned to the filling station with a bedpan. She filled it with gasoline, and carefully walked back to her car.

A police car halted at the nearby traffic light just as the nun began to pour the gas from the bedpan into her car.

The driver turned to his partner and said, "If that car starts, I'm turning Catholic."

dishonest telemarketing?

Despite using their "free do-not-call" service the week prior to August 19th, I'm still getting phone calls from the telemarketing firm hired by Eddie Shack's Battle of the Badges. (no, I'm not linking to them)

When I answer, they hang up.

Having had no luck with me, they're obviously hoping to conn my wife or minor children into agreeing to a pledge.


Update: I called them back, and although there were at least 3 buttons to push for sales, service and info, their automated menu has no option for talking to a human about their bullshit do-not-call service. I eventually got through to a nice lady named Krista, who promised me it was all a mistake, and they wouldn't call again... for 3 years. lol.

Pervert Beaten by angry Mob

Every once in a while people do something that restores my faith in society. According to news reports from Dallas, Texas:

Brandon Scott Burke, 20, showed up Wednesday at an Oak Cliff apartment complex and was alleged to have shown a magazine with pictures of naked women to some of the children playing there, police said...

Someone saw this, called for help, and about 20 people jumped on Burke and soundly beat the shit out of him.

I say they deserve a medal.

Sadly, in Canada, they'd probably go to jail for assault.

A Bit of Wisdom

Loved this one. Someone should tell the democrats.

Allah Scews Osama over.

So, Osama may be dead of Typhoid? Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Allah must really love this asshole, (not.)
Here's some symptoms of typhoid, courtesy of

The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Typhoid fever includes those listed below. Note that Typhoid fever symptoms usually refers to various symptoms known to a patient, but the phrase Typhoid fever signs may refer to those signs only noticable by a doctor:
When considering symptoms of Typhoid fever, it is also important to consider Typhoid fever as a possible cause of other medical conditions. The Disease Database lists the following medical conditions that Typhoid fever may cause:

Pope says Muslim practice of spreading the faith by sword unreasonable - Muslims freak out

This is as predictable as a full moon.

Lecturing at his alma mater, the University at Regensburg, Pope Benedict XVI briefly talked about the unreasonableness of spreading the faith through violence. The subject was the need to reconcile faith with reason. As an aside, He quoted a very ancient debate between a Byzantine Emperor and an Educated Persian saying Mohammed's command to spread by the sword the faith he preached was evil and inhuman.

His holiness admitted the quote was startling in it's brusqueness, but went on to endorse fully the view that "spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable".

Predicably the Muslim world is going bug fucking nuts in response.

Roald Dahl's 90th Birthday

The British Isles are celebrating the 90th birthday of Roald Dahl, the children's author of the well known children's classics "BFG," "Willy Wonka," and "Matilda."

Less well known are his exploits as an aviator in 1941 with the RAF's 80 squadron in the Mediterranean. Hospitalized in Alexandria after cracking his skull in a crash in the Libyan desert, Dahl was left behind by his squadron which had moved on to reinforce Greece. Trained to fly the obsolete Gloster Gladiator bi-plane, he was given a brand new Hawker Hurricane and told to ferry it to his Squadron in Greece upon his recovery. With virtually no instruction on his new aircraft, he successfully rejoined his squadron at Elevsis, near Athens.
At Elevsis he discovered that while the invading German Luftwaffe had brought nearly a thousand combat aircraft, while the RAF had only 14 Hurricanes, and 4 Bristol Blenheims to defend Greece.
With about 7 hours in-type he went into combat the very next day and shot down a JU-88 while on solo patrol. Dahl managed to get two more kills before being grounded for medical reasons.

He recounts his war experiences in the autobiographical "Going Solo" which I discovered quite by accident a couple of years ago. I recommend it heartily.

Assimilation: The Right Attitude

Australia's Prime Minister John Howard has refused to apologize to Aussie muslims for saying they have to integrate into Australian Society.

Good on ya, Mate!

Speaking on a talk radio show yesterday, Howard told his audience that there's a small group of Muslim migrants who refuse to integrate, learn english, or adopt his country's values.

The usual suspects were outraged.

Today he told the media, "I don't apologize... And I have said, generally, all migrants ... they have to integrate, and that means speaking English as quickly as possible, it means embracing Australian values and it also means making sure that no matter what the culture of the country from which they come might have been, Australia requires women to be treated fairly and equally and in the same fashion as men.

"And if any migrants that come into this country have a different view, they better get rid of that view very quickly.

"I don't retreat in any way from that. It doesn't involve singling out a group."

Thank God at least some of the world's western leaders are willing to learn from France's mistakes.
