Highlights, not much. Dodgy answers on Iraq, some talk about ebola victim in US, bunch of typical nonsense answers from the government.

Today marks 14 years since Muhammad Al-Durrah, the 12 year old Palestinian boy was killed by Israeli forces as his father tried to shield him.

For 45 minutes Israeli forces fired as Jammal Al-Durrah tried to shield his son shouting “Don’t shoot” before they were both eventually shot, Muhammad fatally. A paramedic was killed and another wounded whilst trying to assist them.

I remember watching this on television as an 8 year old. The words “Mat el walad” or the boy is dead screamed by people surrounding them still resonate in my ears.

Today, Muhammad would have been 25.
We will never forget.

Never forget

Fox 8 Cleveland angry with LKWD Music Fest after Communist musician calls for end to capitalism on live TV

FOX is tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

FOX News: “Well, Boots, tell us a little bit about your band and the lineup people are going to hear today?” asked Fox 8 reporter Autumn Ziemba.

RILEY: Well, we’re a punk/funk/Communist revolution band.

FOX News: OK.

RILEY: And we are from Oakland, California, and we make everyone dance while we’re telling them about how we need to get rid of the system.

FOX News: Mmm.

RILEY: How exploitation is the primary contradiction in capitalism. And that if we want to express our power, we’re going to have to be more radical in our actions.

this is an all-Black band, from Oakland, and they’re called "The Coup." *buys CD*

Watch Fox News lose control

Question Period Summary: September 30th, 2014:

Highlights:

-Mulcair grills Harper on details on Iraq mission asking very simple questions, Harper is very vague or refuses to answer most of them.

-Peter Van Loan complains about how NDP motion for relevancy in QP is one sided and unfair. Doesn’t seem to like MP’s will get a free vote on the motion.
