Red Deer MLA cracks peanut with sledgehammer.

Alberta PoliticsListening to CBC1 this morning, as is my habit on the way to work, I heard about the MLA for Red Deer North (Mary Anne Jablonski) who is tabling a private member\'s bill in the legislature that will force youth with addiction into treatment. On the surface to the casual observer this doesn\'t seem like a bad idea, and I\'m sure to the party faithful it\'s a great idea. It\'s not a good idea for a couple of reasons.

Family values?

PoliticsCalgary\'s Bishop Fred Henry weighed in on the same sex marriage debate on Sunday with a lecture delivered by his bevy of priests to the faithful. Naturally Bishop Henry presented homosexuality as a threat to the family, equating it with prostitution, pornography and adultery. Frankly I\'m surprised he didn\'t pull in communism, unions and hemorrhoids. Now I understand it\'s his job to hold outmoded ideas, he is a leader in a church after all. It is also his job to tell his flock what to do, so what\'s the problem?

A cautionary tale.

Crünchy ToastI ordered some electronic components back in December (the 18th to be exact) from three different suppliers. One supplier contacted me the following Monday, stating that they could ship the parts out of Winnipeg by Purolator for $8. Those parts showed up the next day. Another supplier shipped with the US postal service. This parcel arrived about a week after it was ordered. The final package was shipped via UPS. This parcel has yet to arrive.

Orin Hatch at it again.

US PoliticsThe Utah senator, know for his rather bizzare ideas, apparently has included in an intelectual property protection act a clause that would make it illegal to skip past commercials.

Iraqi Elections Coming Up.

International PoliticsThe people of Iraq will be going to the polls at the end of the month in elections set up by the United States. It will be interesting to see how the elections go. How much the US will interfere with the process will probably never be known, since it\'s in the American\'s best interest to have someone who is very pro-US in charge. Someone who will do America\'s bidding in the region.

Calgary is creating it\'s own traffic nightmare.

Calgary PoliticsIn it\'s continuing effort to create even worse traffic jams, the city of Calgary council has decided to raise the transit rates and monthly passes. Now the reason I bring this up is twofold. First is personal, the second is societal.

A Trip Into History.

Jason ramblingI\'ve long been a fan of Nicholas Morant\'s work. For those of you who don\'t know who Nick Morant was, he was employed by the CPR as their “Special Photographer”. Over his career he took thousands of photos from all over Canada, not just of trains, but anything else in Canadian Pacific\'s corporate field of endeavour. He also took many photos of subjects not related to the Canadian Pacific group of companies.

Lights fantastic

Crünchy ToastYesterday I set up the lights on the outside of the house. Nothing really exciting about that. However, the sensor light outside my house that I thought was only burnt out, was actually broken. So a trip to Canadian Tire later, the outside of my house is now as festive as ever!

In terms of other lights, Mrs. Evil and I went out and saw the Zoolights, an annual tradition here in the Evil household. The lights were good as always and I\'d recommend going if you haven\'t yet.
