And here’s what the CSM has to say about it!
Canadian scientists and their supporters held demonstrations across the country Monday, calling on the federal government to stop cutting scientific research and muzzling scientists.
I forgot to mention that this was happening.
Britain, France and the United States will table a resolution on Syrian chemical weapons in the United Nations Security Council later on Tuesday, said Prime Minister David Cameron, reacting to a Russian proposal for Syria to surrender such arms.
Hey Obama/US govt, remember that time Russia is going to end up solving the Syrian chemical weapon issue without dropping missiles on the country and murdering fuck only knows how many innocent civilians? Yeah. And stop pretending like you (as the President/whatever of the US, not as human beings in general) give a damn about the innocent people who were killed as a result of that chemical attack (which several rebel groups have taken credit for, btw) because you don’t. Really, if the US gave one shit about protecting people from chem attacks then they wouldn’t have allowed and even condoned the use of chemical weapons in Iran (waaayyy back when we were bffs giving guns and money (and chemcial weapons) to the Iraqi “freedom fighters” (or whatever they were called in the media)). And for the love of fuck, please stop referring to the Syrian rebel groups as though they were one unified force. This isn’t fucking Star Wars and these are not your lovable, good guy Rebels (though certainly some of them probably are). There are a bunch of different factions, some secular and some extremist and every thing in between. There is no way to know which ones will get your fabulous hand out of guns and money. (And remember how well giving guns and money to different rebel or resistance or terrorist groups has always worked out in the past? Iraq ring a bell at all? Maybe a little bit?
Also, please stop yakking on about how “backwards” and whatnot Russia is because of its anti-gay law (which is backwards, ftr) to try to make yourself look better than Russia, because guess what? You are the leader of a country that doesn’t even grant individuals the right to marry at the national level.
PS: Anyone who even considers as a first measure drone striking and launching missiles at a population of people to solve a problem does not deserve the honor of holding a Nobel Peace Prize.
I think there should be some sort of clause or written rule that if you order drone or missile strikes on a population of (mostly) civilians (or, you know, just generally being a war-mongering merchant of death), you should have your Nobel Peace Prize taken away. Or maybe I am mistaken in my belief that this particular honor was to be bestowed upon individuals who have done something to actually further the cause of peace.
NFL punter Chris Kluwe reveals what life is really like online for a professional athlete.
"If a professional athlete were to Instagram a photo of children dead from drone strikes ordered by a Nobel Peace Prize winner, or pictures of starving refugees fleeing from another propped up “friendly” government, or the grim reality of what a savagely hurtling chunk of metal can do to exposed flesh when fired from a gun, well, it goes without saying that there would be some repercussions. “You can’t show people things like that. You’re a role model. People don’t want to see war, and violence, and despair. Now let’s strap it up and hit the battlefield, and destroy that man across from you!””
Does anyone else want to punch everything when the Harper Government propaganda ads come on? Anyone? Just me?
The work of the Experimental Lakes Area shows that non-technological research can bring both environmental and economic rewards.
"It’s heartening to see government appreciation of the potential economic benefits of science, but truly unfortunate that by “science and technology” these governments appear to mean only technology. Recent events would indicate that Conservative governments remain blind to all that scientific advances in non-technology have done to protect Canada’s bottom line, as well as to improve quality of life for Canadians."
Oh, surprise. It is only Republican’ts that are opposing this. Because, you know, the fact that 64% of your population wants this to happen means nothing because fuck actually representing your constituents. Also, let’s just ignore the fact that the Iowa Board of Pharmacy voted unanimously in favor of this measure because, you know, clearly those medical doctors and pharmacists don’t know anything about the possible health benefits of it.
The rise of imaginary Hitler is imminent. The British are coming (again) and 1776 will commence again. What a load of garbage.
