Baltic Pride: The Arguments against Gay Equality

October 26, 2014

Originally posted on The Happy Hermit:

The most puzzling part of the discussion about gay equality and same-sex marriage is how anyone can be opposed to this on reasonable grounds. I never understood what straight people lose when gay people are allowed to marry, for example. But then I took part in Baltic Pride 2013 in Lithuania and I had a chance to listen to the opponents’ arguments. Let’s look at the arguments against gay equality. The opponents of gay equality had months to prepare for this occasion, they were coordinated, they decided to publicly display their arguments and they knew they would end up on TV and in newspapers (and this blog), so I assume they decided to bring forth their very best, thought-through and compelling arguments.

This guy – and many others – had no problem with gay equality as such, they were just against a public march through the city. His…

The Three Percenters.

Basically the militia movement. They are “preppers.”

Apparently these fucktards think there is going to be some sort of a revolution in the US. The US government, apparently led by Democrats or liberals, is going to institute martial law in the US and a state of emergency.

People, I guess conservatives, will be arrested and detained with no charges. Warrantless searches will be conducted everywhere, apparently only on Tea Partiers though. Detention camps will be set up, I guess for conservatards. Cities, I guess Republican cities, will be blockaded by Liberal Government armed forces. Food will be prevented from entering and water and power will be shut off in an attempt to shut down the Tea Party guerrillas. Foreign troops will be called in (Apparently because the Liberal US military can’t do the job!) to keep the order. Proud, conservatarded states will secede from the unholy…

Pittsburgh Penguins play ‘O Canada’ in show of solidarity after Ottawa shooting; acknowledged by Stephen Harper

October 25, 2014

Originally posted on National Post | Sports:

The Pittsburgh Penguins were playing an American team in the U.S., but they made it clear their thoughts were with Canada.

The team played ‘O Canada’ in addition to the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ before Wednesday night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers as a tribute to those affected by the shootings in Ottawa that morning.

The crowd, too, showed its support, singing along loudly as Jeff Jimerson performed O Canada. Here’s Sean Gentille’s video from the press box at the Consol Energy Center:

Hockey fans all across Canada showed their appreciation. Prime Minister Stephen Harper acknowledged the Penguins’ show of solidarity during his speech in Parliament on Thursday morning.

Low inflation – time for meaningful wage increases

October 23, 2014

Originally posted on unitenews:

CTU Media release

With inflation low, now is a good time for workers to negotiate for pay increases that outstrip price rises and deliver real increases in wages and salaries. “For too many people, real pay increases have been missing for several years unless they worked longer hours,” CTU economist Bill Rosenberg says. “Productivity has been rising for several years but hasn’t been recognised in pay increases.”

“Housing and electricity costs are driving annual inflation. At an annual increase of 1.0 percent overall inflation is lower than expected and almost 80 percent of that is housing and energy costs. The Reserve Bank should be considering lowering interest rates rather than raising them. The focus should be on lowering housing costs by building more houses and improving state rental housing and private tenancy conditions rather than risking the uneven recovery with higher interest rates.” Rosenberg said.

Over the year, housing and…
