"24 Types of Libertarians" Libertarianism is the scourge of our time as it provides respectable cover for selfishness.

Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun (the Sun is never a supporter of human rights of any kind):
"As downtown Toronto witnessed burning police cars and a small group of thugs on a rampage, a police source tells me the only thing that stopped the officers from doing that was an order telling them not to. They tell me they could have rounded up all, or most of them, in no time.Also, "10 Interesting Things I Saw at the G20 Protests that the MSM Probably Isn't Talking About" and "How I Got Arrested and Abused at G20 in Toronto, Canada. By Tommy Taylor" and "Inside the G20 Eastern Avenue Detention Centre" and "‘I will not forget what they have done to me’" and "Paikin on police attack against peaceful protest"
I have had several frontline police officers tell me they were told not to get involved. But even before that decision was made, says one insider, there was mass confusion and indecision.
"The orders went from engage to, no, don't engage to engage to, no, don't engage,' " said an officer. "It was an absolute shambles. Everyone was talking over each other on the radio. Nobody seemed to know what to do. It was just a mess."
The officer said that eventually there was "a clear order from the command centre saying 'Do not engage' " and, at that point, smelling weakness and no repercussions, the downtown was effectively turned over to the vandals while police, up to 19,000 strong, were ordered to stay out of it.
Four police cars were destroyed and dozens of other properties were damaged.
"It was awful," said an officer. "There were guys with equipment to do the job, all standing around looking at each other in disbelief ... The Montreal riot guys were livid ... They just wanted to get in there and do the job but were told they are too intimidating."
So who made that order?
Was it Chief Bill Blair? Mayor David Miller? Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Somebody else?
The inevitable inquiry, separate from the announced internal police review, will have to address this and a whole lot of other things. For example, why were a record 1,000 arrests made a day after the actual incident where very few arrests were made during it?"

"Petraeus emails show general scheming with journalist to get out pro-Israel storyline" It is hilarious watching the interplay between Petraeus and the Jews, where Petraeus tries to force them into bankrolling his Presidential run. I particularly love the matter-of-fact way Boot deals with the slur - "No don't think that's relevant because you're not being accused of being
anti-Semitic." - as if it was just a tool not being used at that time.
