Marriage makes us happy. Economists prove it.

Jason Kenny was right. About Libby Davies. What is it about hard core lefties that makes them mutilate their identities for their ideals? See also here. The whole thing reminds me of something I had forgotten. Oceana has always been at war with Eurasia:

At this moment, for example, in 1984 (if it was 1984), Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.

From George Orwell’s 1984, chapter three. Tip: Rempelia Prime.

This blogger seems to have Prince Charles pegged. What kind of a monarchy creates it’s own church in order to marry willy nilly and then still manages to find a way to get married that the monachy’s personal church can’t accept. So now we have the head of the Anglican church intending to marry outside the said church. Methinks Anglicanism lost it’s reason d’etre long ago and we are seeing the death rattle. I’m sorry if that offends anyone. I like quite a bit about Anglicans but they do give me the impression of being lost right about now. To my eyes either the relationship between the Anglican church and the monarchy needs to be severed or Charles needs to abdicate. I think option two is more romantic.

Francis Poretto has a new addition to his Convergence of the Death Cult series. Embryonic stem cells? We don’t need any steenking embryonic stem cells!

Speaking of Death Cults, this story seems to refute the notion that killing the ill is about helping the ill. It’s about helping onlookers who don’t want to look. Or pay, I suspect.

Speaking about life issues, I’m pleased to see so many Canadian bloggers of late voicing opposition to Canada’s lack of any restrictions on abortion. Here’s one, for example. I’ve seen others though I can’t remember where exactly. Even Ben has moved slightly away from his no holds barred approach. I really hope everyone remembers next time the Libs start howling at the moon when anyone dares to even make a distinction between “Canadian’s wishes” and “Liberal policy.” They’re doing it again in the SSM debate in parliament today. Kudos to Stephen Harper for calling PM the PM on it. Harper looked very good in the house today, while Martin staggered, mumbled and slurred. Drunk with passion, maybe.

I’ve never really doubted that I’m a member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (VRWC). Not for a very long time anyway. So this just confirms what I already know.

Finally, from Bound by Gravity, we have Babulican’s Ultimate Dismissal Chart. For those not in the know, Babs is a prolific commenter on many Canadian blogs. If we all print this out and tape it to the side of our monitors we can save ourselves many keystrokes in the future.
