Harper government legalizing marijuana farms

That is something coming from the conservative government – especially Harper regime.

medical marijuana this Tuesday, eventually providing an expected 450,000

John Baird in his Santa's lap

"I am concerned that there is a little bit too much enthusiasm as a result of the different tone. And what we hope is, the world won't take the pressure off the regime (Iran) to make the substantive changes that are needed."

"The stakes are so high, we have to stay focused on what actions they take," Baird said.

I believe that Iran must not develop nuclear weapons. But by the same token Israel must hand over its nuclear and chemical weapons to U.N. to be destroyed. U.S. must demand the same from Israel what it is demanding from Syria and Iran. No double standards and hypocrisy.

Vatican: Jesus was the original tweeter

Jack Dorsey, step aside -- you may be Twitter's first registered user (and hey, founder), but in the eyes of the Vatican, Jesus Christ is the original tweeter.

“Christ used tweets before everyone else, with elementary phrases made up of fewer than 45 characters like 'Love one another,'" said Vatican cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi to a group of Italian newspaper editors Wednesday. "A bit like in television today, he delivered a message through a story or a symbol."

There you go. Jesus knew modern social media more than 2000 years ago. You must read his tweets to live a good and happy life and life hereafter.

John Baird does not trust Iran

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Canada remains 'skeptical' of Iran despite
a historic telephone call between U.S. President Barack Obama and Iranian President
 Hassan Rouhani on Friday. (Jacques Boissinot/The Canadian Press)

He only loves Israel. What about Israel’s over 200 nuclear warheads? Israel used chemical weapons on Palestinians and Lebanese yet Baird only trusts Israel. Iranian President said categorically that his country is not interested in developing nuclear weapons.

"I am concerned that there is a little bit too much enthusiasm as a result of the different tone. And what we hope is, the world won't take the pressure off the regime (Iran) to make the substantive changes that are needed."

Stephen Harper missing again at UN General Assembly

Although Harper was in New York during opening of the United Nations but he will not be speaking to UN General Assembly. His highness has no time for the UN.

He was on his potty break as usual. All previous Prime Ministers - Mulroney, Chretien and Martin spoke at UN General Assembly. Shame.

“In fact, questioning Harper's views of the UN is becoming as much a regular event as the prime minister's streak of missing its annual opening session, even though he's been in New York at the same time for the last two years.

Academics, retired diplomats and the opposition parties insist he's making a huge mistake by, at best, ignoring the UN, or at worst, denigrating its role and importance in a world increasingly fractured by civil war, terrorism and inequality.” CBC

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's speech at the United Nations

Below is an excerpt. In his full speech he pointed out, among other issues, that war in Afghanistan and Iraq caused destruction and instability - not peace and stability. He stated that the turbulence in the Middle East will not help the world or 'super- powers'. He also talked about the plight of the Palestinians and brutality of Israel.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
"The speech wasn’t an unqualified embrace of the west. Rouhani condemned what he said was the “persistence of a Cold War mentality” and the “bipolar division of the world into a superior us and an inferior others.” He denounced the use of drone strikes in the Middle East and called the U.N. sanctions against his country “violent—pure and simple,” adding they “cause belligerence, war-mongering and human suffering.”

Pakistan: Attack on Christians

There are about 70,000 Christians in the city of
Peshawar, capital of deeply conservative Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa province

"But some of the violence against Christians is organised and directly related to American-led war in Afghanistan, so has an expressly political motive.

Months after the US-led coalition attacked Afghanistan in late 2001, a grenade attack on a chapel inside a Christian mission hospital Taxila city killed four people."

warning to Syria, saying 'the threat of force is real' if it does not carry out
an internationally brokered agreement to hand over its chemical weapons.
 (AP Photo/Larry Downing, Pool)

It looks the deal between the U.S and Russia regarding Syrian chemical weapons needs Israeli blessings. John Kerry, Secretary of State, headed straight for Israel on Sept 15, 2013 to meet with Netanyahu. It appears that Israel has the final say.

Netanyahu sought assurances that all the chemical weapons in Syria must be secured and destroyed. But what about Israel's stockpile of chemical and nuclear weapons? Is there not disconcerting duplicity and hypocrisy when it comes to Israel? It is good that any strike on Syria is averted for now, but it was important for the U.S to seek Israel's approval.

“My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.” Putin
  1. Americans own more guns per capita than any other Western Nation.
  2.  Every year 10 to 12 thousand Americans are killed through violence and mostly by gunshots.
  3.  There is more poverty in U.S than any other developed nation.
  4. Sex trade is rampant. Young girls are bought and forced into prostitution. Most of these girls are Asians.
  5.  Discrimination based on culture, religion and race is rampant.
  6.  America has used more weapons of mass destruction than any other nation on earth including atomic bombs and lethal gas weapons.
  7.  America has the worst healthcare system in the whole developed world.
  8.  Freedom of speech which allows KKK spread hate against blacks and other minorities. Violence carried out against minorities
  9. Screwed-up decision-making at Federal level. If President wants a legislation (such as healthcare reform) Congress will stand in the way. And vice-versa given the president’s veto power.
  10. The top 1 percent of U.S. earners collected 19.3 percent of household income in 2012, their largest share in Internal Revenue Service figures going back a century. Last year (2012), the incomes of the top 1 percent rose 19.6 percent compared with a 1 percent increase for the remaining 99 percent.
The list is long and one can go on. So Mr. Putin you are dead wrong.
