Taliban Jack

Now I know why people call NDP leader Jack Layton, "Taliban Jack".

Turns out the supposedly "progressive" and "socially liberal" New Democrats, are --just like the Taliban --- highly offended by the sight of female flesh.

We learned this yesterday thanks to NDP MP Irene Mathyssen.

Busybody Mathyssen was snooping on Conservative MP James Moore, spying over his shoulder while he was working on his laptop in the House of Commons.

And much to her chagrin, she noticed Moore was looking at -- horror of horrors -- "scantily clad women".

Instantly transformed from Karl Marx to Jerry Falwell, the shocked Mathyssen ran off to the media to describe in vivid detail the awful story of how Moore was watching "Playboy-type stuff," of a woman wearing a "skimpy negligee kind of thing."

The implication was clear: Moore was some sort of sex pervert, who "objectified" women. And by extension the entire Conservative government must be "anti-woman."

Of course, as it turns out Moore was completely innocent -- the negligee wearing woman was, in fact, his girlfriend.

And lucky for him, otherwise the NDP would likely have demanded he receive 200 lashes.

NDP are a bunch of left wing loons.

The Liberals are not far behind the NDP.

That's why Harper wins a majority next election.

She reminds me of Gladys Kravitz from the Bewitched show. The neighbour who couldn't keep her nose out of other people's business.

I have no problem with people looking at scantily clad women in their private time. I suspect most males under 30 probably do this. However, I do think doing it work is inappropriate. Many firms block these sites and any employee caught looking at scantily clad women would face discipline or possibly be fired.

Besides when you are at work, you should be working, not surfing the internet. If you are surfing the net at work, you probably aren't being given enough work.
