One example of how large and untenable this gap has become can be found in Statistics Canada’s recent observation that public sector employees now constitute a majority of all pension plan participants, despite being outnumbered more than three to one in the workforce.

This suggests two types of retirement in the future: one of carefree luxury for public sector employees, and one of reduced expectations for everyone else.

A similar dichotomy is at work with Ontario’s practice of paying a bonus to every corrections staffer who takes fewer than 23 sick days per year.

-- CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's new top cop says the accessibility to firearms in America is an extension of "government-sponsored racism" that goes back to the days of slavery and Jim Crow.

McCarthy illustrated his point by recalling a crime scene investigation while he was a police official in Newark, New Jersey where five children were shot, two of whom were killed. McCarthy said when he got home, he turned on his television to unwind and found an episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" showing.

"She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms. Why wasn't she at the crime scene with me?"
Oh my gawd, you moron... let me count the the ways...

a) Sarah Palin lives thousands of miles away from Newark, NJ.
b) She's not a police officer.
c) Hunting caribou has nothing to do with child homicide.

I could go on... but what would be the point? This guy sounds like one of the dumbasses who danced in the street when O.J. got set free.

Had to seal up a swing cylinder on the backhoe... it seems that plugging one leak... stabiliser cylinders... puts pressure on another component... stabiliser hoses... which in turn, pushes oil out a sloppily sealed swing cylinder.

Eventually, I should be able to tighten up the whole machine... but it truly is a process... a sort of "Zen and the Art of Machinery Maintenance" thing. Anyway, this is shaping up to be light blogging day.

Still have to change the engine oil & filter, the hydraulic & transmission filters and the gear oil in the diff. The hoe itself is pretty sloppy... but that's a rebushing, repinning job that's way beyond my meagre mechanical capabilities.

Blogwise... the only thing happening is my buddy nonny losing his mind over the Rob Ford/Gay Pride parade imbroglio.

I'm beginning to figure out why this guy is so obsessed. Apparently, ol' nonnymouse has some sort of homosexual fixation... and he's decided to share all his inner angst with yours truly. It's actually kind of sad how desperately he seems to crave my attention... not something that any amount of naked squirt-gun parade is likely to solve.

Anyway, thanks also, to everyone who has emailed me about nonny running around the intertubes pretending to be me. Just keep those cards & letters coming... impersonation is a criminal offense... and I'll be dealing with that shortly. Not sure what nonny thinks he's accomplishing here... besides revealing his own inner child.

You know... hypocritical...
-- NEW YORK -- President Barack Obama has delivered important political victories for gays but is unlikely to push his support for gay rights much further before the 2012 election in case he alienates independent voters.

Independent voters, seen as less likely to back gay causes, will be crucial in winning closely contested states such as Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Indiana and Wisconsin.

Evangelicals mostly vote Republican, but Obama took 30 percent of their votes in 2008 and he cannot afford to lose them, Zogby said. African Americans voted 95 percent for Obama in 2008 and heavily oppose gay marriage.

He did not foresee the day when politicians would almost literally be dragged into those bedrooms and forced to admire the antics going on therein.

Too bad the table stakes here are human lives...

The withdrawal has created deep divisions in Washington. The defence secretary, Robert Gates, argued for a modest reduction – at one point as low as 2,000 – citing the advice of US commanders in Afghanistan that they need to protect gains made during the winter against the Taliban.

But senior White House staff, conscious that the president has an election to fight next year, argued in favour of a reduction that would send a signal to the US public that an end to the war is in sight.
Yeah, what do all those professional soldier know anyway, huh?

Never mind the actual impact on the situation on the ground... let's start campaigning.

-- ASTANA -- Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday joined the Chinese and Russian leaders in a rare encounter at a summit in Kazakhstan, where he launched a new attack on the "slavers and colonisers" of the West.

In a characteristically firebrand speech peppered with rhetorical questions, he launched a new call for a wholesale shake-up of the world order, which he said was "managed and run by slavers and colonizers of the past."

"I believe together we can reform the way the world is managed. We can restore the tranquillity of the world," he said.
Uh... that's us they're talking about, by the way. We're the real danger.

Funnily enough, here in Canada... we're all about scoreless sports (on CBC radio as we speak) played by genderless children.

It identified the suspects as Vignarajah Thevarajah, 33, Francis Anthonimuthu Appulonappa, 33, Hamalraj Handasamy, 39, and Jeyachandran Kanagarajah, 32.

You forgot to explain exactly... how making "Pimp" a legitimate occupation will enhance the lives of either drug-addled prostitutes... or the larger field of folk.

As for the 60% of Canadian voters who swing left... I, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto... and soon to be Ontario Premier Tim Hudak thank you all for your participation in the political process.

In closing, I reiterate my offer to publish your obviously very personal beef with me... you know, the undisclosed offense I apparently have committed... that causes you to constantly return here to spew invective at myself & my family.

LAST WORD: Let's look a little closer

The lunatic left always likes to trot out the "crime is down" trope. Of course, that overlooks the now infamous observation about "lies, damn lies and statistics".
It's true crime rates - crimes per 100,000 people reported to police, thus accounting for population growth - started falling slowly in the early 1990s.

However, crime rates have never returned to the far lower levels of the early 1960s. Today's crime rate is 131% higher than in 1962, the first year of comparable record-keeping.

Violent crime is up 316%.

-- CHICAGO -- The attacks occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Moments after a group of teens wrestled with Singer over his iPad and BlackBerry, members of the same mob attacked a 42-year-old doctor visiting from Japan. That doctor was beaten and robbed of his iPod Touch while walking in the 700 block of North Lake Shore Drive, authorities said.

Both physicians were in town for the annual convention of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which entered into a 10-year deal with McCormick Place in 2010. The five-day event typically brings in more than 30,000 doctors, vendors and other specialists from around the world.
But, but, but... "the childrens is r futcher"...
On Monday, two 16-year-old boys were ordered held in custody on juvenile charges of attempted armed robbery and aggravated battery.

Three other teens were charged with robbery as adults: Dvonte Sykes, 17, of the 7500 block of South Normal Avenue; Trovolus Pickett, 17, of the 8400 block of South Dorchester Avenue; and Derod'te Wright, 18, of the 3500 block of South State Street. They remained in custody Monday night in lieu of bonds ranging from $200,000 to $300,000.

I don't understand any of this... but there's a kind of nerdish "contact high", just reading about it...

The same team succeeded last year in trapping dozens of anti-matter atoms and holding them in place for a fraction of a second, a world first at the time.

But that was not long enough for the excitable particles to settle into the stable "ground" state needed for precise measurements.

The new benchmark extended this storage time 5,000 fold, making it possible to carry out crucial experiments.

Scientists will now look for "violations" or discrepancies in something called the charge-parity-time reversal (CPT) symmetry.

Measurements of trapped antihydrogen are due to get underway shortly, and could yield results before the end of the year.


Cars do not crush people...

...pencils don't write poetry...do the mathI just don't get it... the implication here is that society... Canadian society... is somehow responsible for these deaths... instead of, you know... the sociopaths who slammed home the knife or fired the fatal shots.

"Through the prism of murder rates per 100,000 people, the disparity is even more striking: A person living in Toronto public housing during those three years was four to five times more likely to be a homicide victim than someone living anywhere else in the Greater Toronto Area."
It seems that J-School 101 also dictates that we learn endearing personal tidbits about the deceased. Reporters relentlessly pursue grief-stricken relatives for that tearful soundbite. And in the end, it's never enough that a life was lost... there also has to be lots of smarmy Oprah-esque subtext, dumping... not on the perpetrators... but on the rest of us.

Apparently, it's necessary to turn murder into "lessons learned"... providing, of course, you never actually point out that these "publicly subsidised" communities are self-perpetuating breeding grounds for violence & misery.

Maybe all the Lois Lane wannabes should save the politically-correct social commentary and bear down on the increasing prevalence of predatory "community-based" gangs who are tearing a swath of terror through the hood. Most of the crime reporting I read nowadays doesn't even give you a description of the perpetrators. It's more gossip than anything remotely resembling news.

You wanna provide your readers with some socially significant commentary, how about you tell us the percentage of shooters that originate in these "special" communities.

Maybe if people could see the outrageous percentage of killers that come from the hood... they'd be less likely to support two billion dollar lunatic left initiatives that target farmers, duck hunters & target shooters.
