I am a redneck alberta boy. Any others here?

Sixty-seven years ago today, John Weir Foote refused to get on the last boat out of Dieppe. Reading about his actions that bloody day has always moved me. He was a great example of Canadian courage and manliness.

Peter - I've seen lots of heavy duty fireworks in Alberta. Not cheap to put on a show though

Turn this around and why can't we own Americans.

Why can't I own a Canadian?

In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant
Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus
18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.

The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a US man,
and posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I
have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that
knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend
the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that
Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of
debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other
elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine
claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair
price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how
do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus
35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated
to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there
'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I
have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading
glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room
here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.
19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes
me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two
different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments
made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also
tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go
to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them?
Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family
affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy
considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan.

University of Virginia PS (It would be a damn shame if we couldn't own a
Canadian)

Its hard to find good fireworks in Ontario. Are there any provinces that allow you to legally buy the good fireworks or is this entire country going to have to smuggle them in from the states?
Comment by None on July 2, 2010 at 11:08am
We saw a great display at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg last night. Really great show. I still choke up when they do the finale to O Canada and everyone stands and sings with the red and white fireworks going crazy overhead.

And Sean, my pet peeve was that fully a quarter of the people there saw the whole show through the 2 inch screen on their cell phones as they tried to video it, for some silly reason. Does anyone actually just watch and enjoy anything anymore?
Comment by Sean on July 2, 2010 at 9:05am
Saw fireworks last night. I still love watching gunpowder explode. There was a woman sitting behind me, though, who spent the entire time speaking loudly about the number of people who could have been fed with the cost of the display.

Happy Canada Day All!

Does your Canada Day include fireworks?

Any interesting ways you celebrate it, you would like to share?

So I've started a martial arts club...

So me and a group of friends have started an amateur Bartitsu society and we're pretty much teaching ourselves the martial art among elements of other fighting styles. While not ideal we're doing well, perfecting the techniques. I organise the activities and exercises and try to explain the basics of the technique from the instruction book.I was just wondering if anyone else has done something similar to this? If so do you have any tips of running these sort of clubs or interesting stories of…See More
