Prepare for a new wave of Scots immigrants.

Yes friends, I believe the time is drawing nigh for a new Scots diaspora, as everyone with half a brain flees the coming catastrophe.  Here are the signs and portents du jour:

Young trainee officers at Strathclyde Police search social networking sites for pictures of people posing with weapons, mainly knives.
The man in charge of this, Superintendent Bob Hamilton, says there are two ways of dealing with people once they've been tracked down.

If they were posing in a public place, like on the street or a park, the law has been broken and they'll be arrested.

Even when pictures are taken in private, though, which isn't technically breaking the law, he says the weapons are so dangerous his officers pay a visit to the people involved.

"We show the parents their pictures," he explained, "recover the weapons and make sure they know that behaviour is unacceptable.

"We have large kitchen knives, axes, samurai swords, baseball bats, a huge number and different type of weapons - in simple terms weapons that can kill."

"Large kitchen knives", forsooth. If this guy showed up in my kitchen he'd probably have a friggin' hernia.

I believe there is only one thing to be done here.  Everybody reading this needs to post a picture of themselves with a paring knife, Boy Scout hatchet or stick of wood, and give it the caption, "Come and get me, copper."  Send it to Superintendent Bob "the knob" Hamilton c.o. the Strathclyde Police Force.

Another academic commits professional suicide.

Phantom de-cloaking for a moment today.  This little object lesson just SCREAMS to be more widely communicated.  The article and more importantly the paper its about shows you everything you need to know about how liberal "scientists" use the academic literature to keep us all stupid. Tell your friends.

A researcher at Texas A&M International University has concluded that there is "no significant relationship" between school shootings and playing violent video games.

Here's a guy who's about to discover that while the truth will set you free, it will also get you fired.  He just torpedoed a bunch of his colleagues who have been making a tidy living off "research" grants from a bunch of trust funds for producing junk science to order.  What they don't tell you about the kid who yelled out "the Emperor has no clothes!" is that the Imperial Guard beat the crap out of him later when nobody was looking.

Still, its good to note that there are some guys left in the ivory tower willing to point and yell "BULLSHIT!" when they see a pile.  We are going to need them in the next four to eight years, because the junk science funding floodgates are being cranked open by Bary's miniOns, you better believe it.

Look for a tsunami of gun control/climate change/video game/animal rights/SUV/blah blah blah propaganda to start hitting in the next 6 months to a year.

Phantom going dark a while.

Due to various non-terrible things, I'm going off line for a month or so. Nothing earth shattering, just have things to do.

Ta ta for now.

More terrible things to blame the nassssty Israelis for.

Yes my friends, not only has Israel impeded the flow of aid to the Holy Poor of Palestine (Gaza Division) by <gasp!> firing upon a UN labeled truck, now we have the final straw!

Hamas on Monday raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders.

The IDF said that since terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA and the Red Cross, Israel could do nothing to prevent such raids, Israel Radio reported.

Between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the army had ceased all military activity in Gaza and once again established a "humanitarian corridor" to help facilitate the transfer of the supplies.

This failure to prevent the theft of supplies by the IDF clearly shows their commitment to the destruction of Gaza and the killing of all the Holy Palestinians therein.

But my friends, there is even worse news!  The dire, dastardly Israelis propose to add more men to their invasion!

Meanwhile, Israel is considering establishing a field hospital in the Gaza Strip to treat Palestinian civilians wounded in fighting between the IDF and Hamas.

The plan would be to establish the field hospital outside the Gaza Strip, but the IDF is also considering the possibility of erecting the hospital inside the Palestinian territory so it will be more accessible to the Palestinian population. It would be run by the IDF Medical Corps.

If you watch this webcam you can see the eeeeeevile first hand.

See, there's a REASON we have rules in war.

The noble UN has suspended "aid" to the Holy Poor of Gaza. Seems those dirty Zionists keep shooting the UN's selfless holy aid workers.

The United Nations halted aid deliveries to the besieged Gaza Strip on Thursday, citing Israeli attacks on its staff and installations hours after it said tank fire killed one of its drivers as he went to pick up a shipment.

The world body has already demanded an investigation into Israel's shelling of a UN school in Gaza that killed nearly 40 people earlier this week. Israel said Hamas fighters were operating in the area at the time.

For a second straight day, Israel suspended its Gaza military operation for three hours to allow in humanitarian supplies. Shortly before the pause took effect, however, the UN said one of its aid trucks came under Israeli fire, killing the driver.

The UN said it co-ordinated the delivery with Israel, and the vehicle was marked with a UN flag and insignia when it was shot in northern Gaza. The Israeli army said it was investigating.

Firing on an aid convoy? That's harsh, man. Why would even the heartless, eeeevile Israelis do that?

Here's a clue.

Just so you're clear who's mailing your welfare check...

This little beauty caught my eye today, thought I'd share it with you. 

The Ontario arm of the Canadian Union of Public Employees announced yesterday it would propose, in a meeting next month, "a ban on Israeli academics doing speaking, teaching or research work at Ontario universities," if they do not explicitly condemn Israeli action in Gaza.

The Blob & Snail characterizes this as an occurence which "sparked a bitter debate" between "both sides".  The reason for CUPE to do this? (Oh, you're going to love it!)

The proposal comes specifically after a Dec. 29 attack on an Islamic University in Gaza, which Israel claimed was affiliated with Hamas.

"Attacking an institution of learning is just beyond the pale," CUPE Ontario president Sid Ryan said last night. "They deliberately targeted an institution of learning. That's what the Nazis did."

No mention of the little kids in the Israeli school that DIED from the Hamas missile the other day, but maybe the Blob staffers can't remember back that far.

Anyway, superdude Bernie Farber charges to the defense of his co-religionists:

The connection – of Israel to the Nazi regime – infuriated Bernie Farber, chief executive officer of the Canadian Jewish Congress, who said no one yet knows whether the university was a legitimate target, and that Mr. Ryan's comments were "nasty and bigoted rhetoric."

Way to go Bern, you're a mench.  "Maybe Israel is run by Nazis, we aren't sure, but Ryan is a meanie for saying so."

Israel "claimed" the Gaza University was "affiliated" with Hamas because missiles were being built on the premises and arms stored there.  I could be wrong but I heard they had video of ordinance being fired from there too.  I did not personally see any of this with my own two eyes, because I live in Ontario Canada.  But I believe the IDF.

If there's a choice between believing the IDF or Hamas, I chose the IDF every time.  This is because the IDF does not have its soldiers riding around in ambulances, hiding among civilians and indescriminantly shooting large rockets at towns and cities.  Hamas is known to do that, and is doing it right now, today, even as I write this.

Your Canadian Union of Public Employees, whose members include pretty much every worker in the Ontario government bureaucracy, choses to believe the claims of the ambulance riding, skirt hiding, missile firing Hamas pussies whose entire purpose is to kill all the Jews in Israel.  Says so in their charter.

I'm thinking the drones at the Ontario Human Rights Commission are probably CUPE members. Quite the conundrum they face today.  On the one hand their union screaming that the sacred cow of Leftism, the Holy Victims of Palestine, are being gored.  On the other hand their raison d'etre, anti-Semitic words being voiced in public... by their union.  It will be enlightening to see how they manage this growing conflict of interest, won't it?

My money is on them charging Bernie Farber with being off side.

Take your good intention in one hand and spit in the other...

Habitat for Humanity is being sued!

RESIDENTS of a model housing estate bankrolled by Hollywood celebrities and hand-built by Jimmy Carter, the former US president, are complaining that it is falling apart.

Fairway Oaks was built on northern Florida wasteland by 10,000 volunteers, including Carter, in a record 17-day "blitz" organised by the charity Habitat for Humanity.

Eight years later it is better known for cockroaches, mildew and mysterious skin rashes.

I will note here that eight years is about the right length of time for the paint and the caulking to have cracked on the exterior.  Florida is pretty rainy, you don't keep up with the painting and bad things start to happen. 

Maybe giving a house to people who don't understand/can't afford basic maintenance is not the best idea?
