Weekly Reckoning: Who Reckons The Reckoners Edition

weekly-reckoningWelcome. A brief reckoning this weekend, for all your medically recognized reckoning needs. Now with iron and seven essential nutrients.

1. INTERNET JOURNALISM, PWNED FOR ALL TIME. Paul Ford of Ftrain more or less summarizes the viral Internet economy in just a few deft paragraphs. I’ll be applying for the job of Philbin the Meerkat, so don’t even bother.

2. YOUR DISTURBING NSA-SNOWDEN REVELATION FOR THE WEEK. Nice selfie, bro! The NSA is probably using it to spy on us all.

3. HARPER REALLY HATES STUFF FROM HIS CHILDHOOD. At a Friday fundraiser, Stephen went on a “full-throated” rant on the evils of Soviet communism and Vladimir Putin. Because nothing ignites a crowd like dressing up current complicated problems in the bright and simple livery of the Cold War. Hey Harper, you want to know the real threat to our freedom? Cossacks. No wait! It’s those Catholics killing Huguenots. Never forget the horrors of the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre.

Right then! Here’s a fancy-schmancy picture of our beloved city plaza.

  1. Regina City Plaza: Devoid of any and all permanent economic activity whatsoev (but there is Salsa dancing 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays… or whenev).

  2. Ahh yeeah, Stephen Harper is not the granddaddy of thought on the oppressions of capitalism. Furthermore, I think the Plaza’s commercial problems have more to do with the very active developers who own the buildings along the plaza and an unwillingness to allow “capitalism” to flourish there in favour of bigger dollars into their very small pot. You know what sucks almost as much as Communism? The Divine “Right” of Capital to wield their monopolies as they see fit, at the expense of not only small business but also of the community. Indy500, your understanding of how “capitalism”, capitalism sustained by government contracts, and monopolies is a little underwhelming.

  3. I meant to say that Stephen Harper is not the granddaddy of thought on the oppressions of COMMUNISM, but he’s clearly not a granddaddy of Capitalism, either. What market did he ever create besides that of American-style low-down dirt politics for PR firms?

    FURTHERMORE any who conjures the evils of Communism for political gain in 2014 WEARS CLOWN SHOES.

    Are you going to throw a guy props for saying that Hitler was bad, or that AIDS is a scourge? Like, duh.

  4. Not saying Capitalism is perfect, its just that its miles ahead of Communism. I think we all can agree to that.

  5. we can all agree that Capitalism is miles ahead of Communism.

    No we can’t agree to that.

  6. Aidan’s point is that it’s fucking nuts to get worked up over communism in 2014. Aidan is correct.
