Cologne: What more do we need to know?

Here are some questions I think we should be asking ourselves about the attacks in Cologne.

Does this video explain the refugee crisis "perfectly"? Not even close.

According to truthdig.com (a web-site of which I'm a big fan), this video explains the Syrian refugee crisis "perfectly."

This is perfection? Don't think so.

Windows 10: What to do, what to do?

The impending “upgrade” of my computers to Windows 10 is bugging the bejeezus out of me.

But my mind has now been made up for me. Way to go, Windows!

August Massacre at Douma, Syria: More "Rebel" BS?

By now, the "rebels" in Syria, and their enablers, such as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (sic) and Human Rights Watch (NATO, inc) have established for themselves such a record of lies and BS that I simply don't believe anything they say. The massacre at al-Houla; the "chemical attack" in East Ghouta, Damascus; the massacre at Deraa; and many others...

More on the Kurdis: The NDP Rides the Bandwagon

No sooner did I publish my weblog piece on the deaths of the three Kurdish refugees in the waters off Turkey, I received in my e-mail inbox a missive from my MP, the New Democratic Party's Craig Scott (Broadview-Danforth).

Alan, Ghalib, and Rehanna Kurdi, and the Cynicism of the West

The mainstream media in the "West" have their R2P knickers in a twist. All of a sudden, the refugee crisis in Europe must be solved.

But why just Syrian refugees?

Soldiers, etc: Honoured at half-time, screwed in real life

On Canada Day and US Independence Day, we're bound to hear/suffer through a lot of salutes to our "heroes," our military members and veterans. Knees will jerk, huzzahs all around.

Canada's sneaking, lying-speaking Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, started it off on Canada Day on just the right note.

The Mighty Mekong, and the Bridge

In April, work was completed on a bridge over the Mekong River just north of Neak Loeung, Cambodia. Before the bridge, everything stopped at Neak Loeung while your bus/car/motorcycle negotiated passage on a ferry over the river. It's progress, but me, I liked the stop/ferry. I've posted about it before. I'm a member of a group of FB nerds in Cambodia, and I wrote this to them. Maybe you'll like it.

Here comes the Canada Day/Independence Day extravaganza

Every year at this time we get to take a day off, hang with friends and family, and think about how lucky we are to be so darned free in these great countries of ours. This year we’ve got a special reason to celebrate, as the United States has finally joined Canada in legalizing same-sex marriage. But every year, it seems, we’ve got a little less reason to do so.

Living electrically in rainy season Cambodia

Here are some of the challenges of living in a developing country (which is also very high on everyone's corruption index) during the rainy season:
