Rants and Tirades

(eat your heart out, Rickie M !)

Sometimes you just gotta rant! I'm all about the enlightenment, and the vision-thingy, and positive hopey-changey, but some days, some idiots just deserve a RANT!

So, as a public service, I'm bringing you this space to RAGE UNCONTROLLABLY comment thoughtfully on the topics of the day.

Whether it's politicians, bureaucrats or other space aliens that are subjecting you to anal probing, you can RANT!.

If it's the actions of GIGANTIC CORPORATE EVIL-CO that have browned you off, you can RANT!

Even if its the fuzzy logic of quasi-looney oh-so-PC groups like Human Rights Commissions that have you baffled, you can RANT!

But don't say anything bad about Jamie Lee Curtis, or I'll HORKK you!

I likes Jamie.

p.s. I moderate this page, so tired profanity will be censored (new and original profanity - e.g. HORKK - might get through)

p.p.s. Rick Mercer is one of my people, even if he is a townie (yes, I'm from the Rock, too) so nothing bad about him either, unless you really can't resist - then it's OK.

p.p.p.s. And don't give a me hard time about the 'rant' thing, I got more than a decade on Mercer. I was ranting when he was still drinking his first bottle of Screech - i.e. Grade 6 or so - I just don't remember them good!

Here's the place to rant . . .

Just plain fed up with the latest nonsense from Big Government or Big Business or some 'talking head' on television? Here's the chance to vent your spleen!
