Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: B-17 Flying Fortress over Regina

Regina was lucky to get a visit from the famous World War II bomber plane. I spent a few days running outside in the morning when I heard it roaring overhead, and snapping some photos and shooting videos. My older SD video camera has a much better 12X real zoom (48X digital), but my phone […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: B-17 Flying Fortress over Regina

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: #OldNews about Alcohol and Planes

A warning against drunk driving. 6 Sept. 1949. Netherlands.@trouw #OldNews pic.twitter.com/yIFzzXo516 — John Klein (@JohnKleinRegina) March 23, 2016 Roughly, it says: “Alcohol makes lumps. Whoever is not satisfied, can see it in this photo, which was acquired last night after a driver who was under the influence of liquor, first drove to the gate of […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: #OldNews about Alcohol and Planes

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Solar All Over California

On our Amtrak trip through southern and central California, I watched the dry and irrigated fields fly by me at 133km/h. We stopped for the night in Bakersfield (the most conservative city in America, some figures show), and it was 41 degrees even with the sun down. The cement around the pool at . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Solar All Over California

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Wrong Side Of History

I found it ironic today that there are people viewing staying out of Iraq as being on the “wrong side of history”. I couldn’t think of a more perfect example of a battle fought in folly, than Canadian troops going to fight ISIS in Iraq with bombers.

Eleven years ago I was in an evening . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Wrong Side Of History

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Air and Space

Walked around Balboa Park. Gave a 50 cent coin to a magician, maybe he’ll use it in his act in the future. Got lost, found my wag son after crossing a bridge. Saw another Apollo command module, this was 9 Gumdrop.

Woke at 5am to some man yelling help a few blocks away. Police . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Air and Space

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: You Can Vote, But You Can’t Travel in Canada

This situation is BS.

A Manitoba MP is crying discrimination after two aboriginal women were not allowed to board a plane with her, even though they had tickets.

Niki Ashton, who represents the Churchill riding for the NDP, said Gail and Joyce Nepinak were scheduled to fly to Ottawa from Winnipeg with her on Sunday . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: You Can Vote, But You Can’t Travel in Canada

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: F-35: Don’t Need No Stinking Accountability

I am genuinely concerned that there is no viable alternative party for conservatives in Canada who have, to this point, put all of their eggs into the Harper basket(case) Conservative Party of Canada. It’s staggering, the amount of intellectual fortitude (dishonesty) it takes to justify the crimes, the lying, the harassment, and general bad-neighbourly things . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: F-35: Don’t Need No Stinking Accountability

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: What The F-35?

A lawsuit, jets, lies, no accountability?

[Canadians] “feel completely manipulated, completely lied to and they are pissed off; they want a corporation like Air Canada to be accountable for misleading them.”

Oh, nope, sorry that’s Air Canada, not the F-35 story, my mistake.

“In my view, no clear evidence has been presented beyond this, and . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: What The F-35?

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls – Globe & Mail Should Blush

There are days I worry that the Globe and Mail is unfit for birds to poop on it. If their endorsement of the Harper Conservatives prior to last year’s electoral fraud riddled election wasn’t enough of a credibility hit, there’s their more recently published Ibbitson column claiming Harpercons wouldn’t openly lie. I don’t think Ibbitson’s . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls – Globe & Mail Should Blush

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: US Blocking UK Travel to Canada

This is completely outrageous. Better hope no one with your name ends up on the US No Fly list. This move makes the financial blockade against WikiLeaks, look like a simple administrative dispute.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: September 11 Lost To Terrorism

This article appeared on PostMedia websites in the lead-up coverage of September 11th, Ten Years Later. A new generation is dawning, and they have no direct grasp of what it means to have lived through September 11, 2001. My experience may have been first hand through live TV, but like most Canadians, my life was […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: September 11 Lost To Terrorism

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: So Angry

Are you so angry you’d: a- consider bombing a plane? b- leak a secret classified document? c- vote for Jason Kenney? d- all of the above? If you answered d-, you’re a Muslim man who has been accused and terror blacklisted, CSIS employed, Conservative. In other words, your life is shitty and effed-up by hate.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Flight

April and I are on our way home from Halifax. We woke up at 4;15 to catch the shuttle, which after a short cab ride to catch it was probably not a better deal for two adults going to the airport, than a cab would have been. I slept through most of the five hour […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Flight

ParliamANT Hill: ANTi-Semitism panel wants more action from Ottawa

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Ontario

Flew to Toronto on Monday morning, and slept along the way, still only giving me a few hours of sleep, as I was wound up and doing chores I hadn’t done due to wedding preparations. Rented a car downtown after taking the TTC, and went back to the airport to pick up our friend who […] . . . → Read More: Saskboy’s Abandoned Stuff: Ontario
