Worker gets rolled back

A crowd, caught up in its quest for ultra cheap crap, tramples a Wal-Mart worker to death.

This only confirms my suspicion that any store could have its manufacturing/slave pits on site in full view of the cash registers if only it sold its goods cheap enough.

Political Correctness Kills

Carelton University has decided to stop supporting the Cystic Fibrosis. Why? Because it mainly affects WHITE MEN.

This is EXACTLY the same as saying:

"We don't want to support Ebola Research because it primarily affects people in Africa"
"We don't want to support Breast Cancer reasearch because it primarily affects women"
"We don't want to support Tay Sachs research because it primarily affects Jews"

Do these people see the overt racism contained in their resolution?

Something tells me that the white members of CUSA wake up every morning disappointed they didn't turn into a minority (any minority) during the night.

CTV is carrying the story now.

See how they try to weasel out of the controversy:

She said that the part of the motion that refers to why Shinerama has been
cancelled is irrelevant, not part of the official meeting record and simply
reflects the rationale of the councillor who raised the motion.
"It completely depends on the individual," Smyth told "It's 100 per cent
their opinion. Their opinion doesn't have to be fact or anything really. It's
just how this individual felt.
Only the resolution is important, Smyth said, even though it appears councillors are endorsing the idea that support of cystic fibrosis be stopped because it is a white-man's disease.

"Speaking from the council perspective, the whereas motions weren't actually overly relevant when people were making a decision on what they wanted to do," Smyth said.

She also pointed out that the whereas clauses cannot be amended, and said if a
resolution to drop Shinerama had been rejected, the issue could not have been
raised again.

So it only matters that they cancelled the support, not why they did and besides, that's only one person's opinion.

Sorry - you supported the resolution as proposed. You can't go back on it now.

Queen's hires the Thought Police

Queen's University has decided to get groups of students to eavesdrop on conversations of other students.

I wonder if they have to buy their own brown shirts or if the university supplies them. No word on the deployment of parabolic microphones...yet.

From the comments in the article:

Hiring speech police to patrol university corridors and cafeterias and correct
politically incorrect private conversations is way over the top. It confirms
universities have substantially more funding than required. Government subsidies
can be safely reduced.
