Canadian AK-47

I just love this picture.

Real Men use Guns and Crossbows

I find all the fuss about the Hunger Games and archery recently is rather funny.

In my opinion real men use guns - and sometimes crossbows, because crossbows are really badass.

And okay, maybe compound bows. Compound bows are pretty great for hunting.

But wimpy recurve bows like Katniss Everdeen? Or longbows? I am sorry. They look pretty lame.

From what I can tell most of the fuss is from teenage girls and young women who have probably never even held either a bow or a gun in their lives.

You want to see a real weapon? Look at Daryl Dixon's crossbow in The Walking Dead. Effing awesome.

Now I want to point out something wonderful.

I live in Canada. I am proud to be a Canadian. But I am also proud of Canada's laws concerning crossbows.


Because you don't need a license to buy a crossbow. Nada. Just go into any hunting store that has crossbows, plunk down $800 to $1200 and you can get yourself a crossbow. No license whatsoever.

Same goes with compound bows. No license needed to buy one. Costs about $500 to $1000 for everything you need.

Now if you want to hunt with it, that is a different story. You need a hunting license and hunting tags, which is really easy to get. And then it is just a matter of waiting until hunting season.

Or depending on what you are hunting for, eg. hunting grouse, wild turkey, waterfowl, then there is less restrictive hunting seasons.




The end is near for Stephen Harper's political career

I have not wrote on this blog for awhile but I think I will start doing so again.

The reason is because the end is near for Stephen Harper's political career and it is time for new leadership for the Conservative Party.

With all the scandals Stephen Harper is now the butt of jokes in much the same way Rob Ford is. For the first time in years it has become clear that it is time for change.

Unfortunately that change is likely to be the Liberal party. A bunch of middle-of-the-road socialists who like to sit on the fence most of the time.

Or worse, the lefty NDP nutjobs with their bleeding hearts which would spend everything on health care, the environment, education, etc.

It makes me realize that the Green Party (which is fiscally conservative but environmentally friendly) actually sounds like a realistic option now.

I am okay with the Green Party being tough on the oil and coal industries. Totally fine with it. Better than the laissez faire write-me-a-cheque approach that Stephen Harper has been taking. Everyone knows Stephen Harper has been on the payroll of the Alberta oil industry since the Reform Party years.

And then there is the Keystone oil pipeline - which the Conservative Party is desperate to get built so they can get millions of dollars in kickback money. If they don't get that oil pipeline built with the cooperation of the Americans then the Conservative Party may indeed run out of money when their sponsors in the Alberta oil industry decide maybe it is time for change.

Which makes you realize what Canadians vote for doesn't really matter. What matters is what the Alberta oil tycoons think and do.
