This is scathingly funny. Will Ferrell does a mock music video of macho gangster rap. Man, how I despise that music. As Rage Against the Machine said, “So-called rap’s a fraud.” Worse, most of it is disgustingly offensive, as well as hollow and noxious. Bob Marley would roll in his grave. Only new country and […]

Rafe has seen the light!
Nice to see that Rafe Mair has come to his senses and is now backing the corporate toadies, aka the Harper Cabinet and the light headed Finance Minister Joe Oliver aka ‘Chuckles’.
They are all joyfully promoting LNG and spending our money doing it.

Is Rafe kidding? Has he really changed sides? Rafe, how could you?
