Here’s a movie with a creative edge   Leave a comment


_

Surf Nazis Must Die is a 1987 American comedy film. Plot: An earthquake leaves the California coastline in ruins and reduces the beaches to a state of chaos. A group of Neo-Nazis led by Adolf (Brenner), the self-proclaimed “Führer of the new beach,” takes advantage of the resulting chaos by fighting off several rival surfer gangs to seize control of the beaches. Meanwhile, an African American oil well worker named Leroy (Harden) is killed by the Nazis while jogging on the beach. Leroy’s mother “Mama” Washington (Neely), devastated by the loss of her son, vows revenge. After arming herself with a handgun and grenades, she breaks out of her retirement home and exacts vengeance on the Surf Nazis.

Judy should drop her paternal name   Leave a comment


_

I have heard Judy’s last name mentioned in the media so many times in the past 6 weeks that I have grown to find the name irksome. Judy is running for mayor of Winnipeg and may win in today’s election.

As many progressive women do, they keep their paternal name and add their spouses name with a hyphen connecting them. A name like Smith-Jones isn’t so bad. But Judy’s name has way to many y’s, s’s and i’s. And Lycia and Leis are pronounced too similarly. It just grates on a guy.

She was born Klazina Judith Wasylycia, the daughter of Harry Wasylycia and Klazina Nielson, in Winterbourne, Ontario, a small town near Kitchener. She graduated from Elmira District Secondary School in 1970. Wasylycia-Leis was educated at the University of Waterloo, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in political science and French in 1974, and Carleton University, where she received a Master of Arts in political science in 1976.  She worked as a policy planning consultant for the New Democratic Party following her graduation, and served as an executive assistant to party leader Ed Broadbent. She also served as women’s organizer for the federal NDP during this period.

In 1972, she married Ronald Wayne Leis.

Wasylycia-Leis moved to Manitoba during the 1980s, where she worked as an executive assistant to Premier Howard Pawley and coordinated the Women’s Directorate in the Manitoba government.

‘Radicalized’ Quebec Attacker Martin Rouleau Is Already Being Martyred by ISIS Fighters

_

Even though Prime Minister Stephen Harper is remaining tight lipped about the specifics of a “suspected terror attack” Monday in Montreal, online Canadian jihadists currently plying their trade in Iraq and Syria are already making a martyr out of the suspected attacker.

Martin Rouleau—who went by the alias Ahmad LeConverti (Ahmad the Converted)—allegedly ran over two Canadian soldiers in a civilian location near a base south of Montreal, before being chased and subsequently shot dead by police. The incident has since claimed the life of one of the soldiers, after he died from his injuries in hospital, leaving the other in critical condition.

While the PMO clearly stated that Rouleau had “become radicalized,” as of yet the RCMP has not released any details concretely linking Rouleau with operatives in the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. The RCMP did, however, confirm he was one of 90 Canadian being monitored for potential terrorist activities in Canada.

Real IS links or not, it didn’t stop alleged fighters with Canadian roots from tweeting congratulatory statements for the now-dead Quebecker.

Abu Kalid Al-Kanadi is a suspected Canadian jihadist in Syria widely known by his online alias. Last week, the potential Torontonian posted messages inciting attacks against Canadians after Prime Minister Harper formally decided to increase military engagements in Iraq.

“(M)y message is clear. Canada initiated attacks on the Islamic State, so Muslims in Canada, retaliate & KILL THEM WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM,” he said in a tweet.

It’s clear the planned CF-18 bombing campaigns against Islamic State targets didn’t sit well with fighters on the ground, who, like al-Kanadi, now use as a justification for terror attacks on Canadian soil.

“Canada sends jets and troops to the Muslim lands, and kill our people. Do you not expect Muslims to retaliate?” he said in his latest tweet storm.
