Our freedoms and security, fought and died for by Canadians and their allies, are under attack. The biggest threats to our freedom are too much government, the eco-lobby, and censors posing as human rights commissions. Our biggest security threat is Islam.

Canada wins gold in men's Olympic hockey: Vancouver 2010

Winter Olympics 2010

Congratulations to all our athletes for representing our country so well. There were triumphs and disappointments as always, but I am proud of the efforts of all our athletes.  We set a record for winter gold medals, PLUS we won both men's AND women's hockey. Win or lose, all of our athletes gave their all and we should be proud of each and every one of them.

Thank you to Vancouver for putting on a great show.

The Left Ain't Laughing Anymore

Update to my post from yesterday about the George W Bush Billboard:

Rumors are swirling that if you drive down I-35 in Minnesota, you'll see a billboard featuring a smiling George W. Bush accompanied by the question "Miss me yet?"

This was initially discredited as a photoshopped hoax, but it's real. But the dual mysteries surrounding who paid for the ad, and their motivation, remain. Are they Obama supporters sarcastically hoping to remind people about George W., or Bush fans sincerely yearning for the "good" days of the past administration?

Mary McNamara, the manager at the Minneapolis office of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising, the company which owns and leases out the billboard, says: "The ad was purchased by a group of small business owners who wish to remain anonymous." However, "some people in the group were Obama supporters."


I bet all the moderates who fell for Manchurian Candidate Obama do.

Asteroid Collision in Space by Hubble

The Hubble Telescope's new Wide Field Camera captured this image of what scientists believe is the result of a collision between two asteroids. What an incredible photo.

"The X marks the spot of a suspected head-on collision between two asteroids imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope’s new-and-improved Wide Field Camera.

If it’s confirmed by further observations, it would be the first time that scientists have detected the interplanetary collision between objects in the asteroid belt, though they believe that such occurrences are common.

The complex structure of the debris is what makes astronomers think they may be seeing something new around the sun. The main nucleus of the object, P/2010 A2, is actually located outside its dust halo, something that’s never been seen in a comet-like object before.

“The filamentary appearance of P/2010 A2 is different from anything seen in Hubble images of normal comets, consistent with the action of a different process,” said David Jewitt, an astronomer at the University of California Los Angeles, in a press release.

They hypothesize that the filaments are made up of dust and gravel created by a high speed impact that could have occurred at 11,000 miles per hour.

“If this interpretation is correct, two small and previously unknown asteroids recently collided, creating a shower of debris that is being swept back into a tail from the collision site by the pressure of sunlight,” Jewitt said.
