Rossi: Don't call me Right (wing)

So I was came across an article in today's Star where basically Mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi insists that he isn't "Right Wing" that he is instead a "pragmatist" he doesn't eat meat (why that would matter in the left-right spectrum is beyond me) and this old chestnut he actually bikes himself! Instead he states he is "fiscally conservative, socially liberal" Shit, if I heard a nickle for everytime I hear that, and further he is neither left nor right both phrases I've heard the Green Party spout for quite some time. Anyways, discuss.

Humberto DaSilva won the Not Rex Murphy contest on rabble. If you missed the contest, you can read about it at: http://rabble.ca/rabbletv/notrex .

Here is Humberto's first Not Rex commentary, on the Greek economic crisis. Athough the Greek Debt Crisis is being blamed on deficits, Wall Street firms have been profiting on Greek debt for years.

Check out the video. Any feedback for Humberto?

Alheli Picazo

Congrats, Glorious Leader, on your monumental decision

Charles Demers

Harper's hitlist: Watchdogs muzzled and kept on chains

Murray Dobbin
The federal government consists of many arms-length and independent agencies designed to be beyond political control. Undermining and manipulating commissions and watchdogs is the PM's way.
