Have you heard about the Dawgfather?

He is running for office in Halifax, and cares about issues that relate to students. Did you know that there is double taxation of student loans, and that technically it is illegal for students to pay interest on student loans? That is the kind of issue that he is going to take to Ottawa if…

What is the Illuminati?

The Illuminati from what I understand is a secret society. It is pursuing a New World Order where national or state boundaries become extinct. They want globalization on a grand scale. I have read that the movement began in the 18th century in Bavaria. I am just learning about this society myself, but have picked…

Words whisper; actions scream! Most people are selfish and self-absorbed.

There’s a trend that’s happened in the past couple of years where people are uncomfortable if a person is negative. But sometimes it’s good to be negative when you’re trying to make a point. I have a sincere belief that most (definitely not all) people are incredibly self-absorbed and selfish. Is this negative, or just…

Making jokes about the Pope, Mohammed…do we no longer have any manners or respect for the sacred?

I think it’s a shame that so many people are making jokes about the new Pope. Whether someone is a member of the Catholic church or not, the Pope is a symbol of God. Yes, individuals in the Catholic church, including high-ranking ones, have done very bad things. Is there a church or religious organization, or human being…

Masculinity and men in the Middle East

Moustaches in the Middle East are a fascinating topic. The above picture is of a young Persian man. Notice the perfection of his beard. He looks well-groomed, and trimmed with the facial hair offsetting the perfect complexion of his skin. I know several Arabs and Persians who have similarly impressive goatees and beards, so the…

Homosexuality in the Middle East: Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia: And my opinion

I have already written on the subject of homosexuality in Saudi Arabia, and I came across another interesting article on homosexuality in Kuwait, so I thought I would write about that.   This article was written in 2007 (http://muslimmedianetwork.com/mmn/?p=1478) and is authored by Sumayyah Meehan. The author states that in the Middle East, punishment of…

Do we have a responsibility to help the homeless?

Yesterday while waiting for the bus, a homeless guy asked me if I could give him a bus ticket or pass or cash because he had lost his ticket. He said when you’re homeless it’s hard to keep track of stuff. I didn’t have the right change for the bus, so I didn’t help him,…

Sluts at Cutten House–Acadia University: An obsession with women’s rights unfortunately helps us forget about humankind’s responsibilities.

Today when I was in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, I noticed people carrying signs. From where I was sitting in the restaurant I was in, I couldn’t make out all of the words, but I did see ‘rapists’, ‘bodies,’ and ‘women’s rights.’ It seems like a write a fair number of blogs about women’s rights. It’s…

Luke and Laura, General Hospital, and Ron Carlivati better not let us down!

Laura is back on General Hospital! Today was the first show I’ve seen in a while. I came back because I saw Genie Francis on a cover of one of the soap news magazines. I haven’t watched the show on a daily basis for years—in fact, I think that the last time I watched regularly…
