I think he should be un-muted and given his own thread in which to ramble to his heart's -- and med's -- content.

He's a poster-boy for the "rebel without a clue" types, showing their true conspiratorial, gov't-oppressed colours.

There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented, and absolutely terrifying.

Meds Dude.

They have some good ones now.

Makes the voices go away.

Get some.
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

There is no God, and life is just a myth.

"He who drinks, sleeps. He who sleeps, does not sin. He who does not sin, is holy. Therefore he who drinks, is holy."

Let's Go CAPS!

A couple of more dealt with ....
Two more Toronto G20 vandals pleaded guilty Friday to participating in the massive 2010 riots, and were sentenced to six months in prison.

In Superior Court in Montreal, Guillaume Constantineau and Youri Couture pleaded guilty to assaulting a peace officer, wearing a disguise with intent to commit an indictable offence and common nuisance.

The two men were among a contingent of violent summit protesters who adopted the “Black Bloc” tactic, wearing black clothing and bandannas to shield their faces while smashing property in the downtown core.

“The rioting and the damage that ensued immobilized the downtown core, terrifying both residents and visitors,” noted an agreed statement of facts entered in court Friday. “Peaceful protest voices were drowned out as a result of the unprecedented violence that weekend.”

Photo and video evidence pinpointed Constantineau and Couture as participants in a march toward Queen Street West and John Street, where a confrontation with police ensued.

Couture was captured on camera throwing a long wooden pole into a line of police officers; it struck a female officer in the shoulder. Constantineau, meanwhile, hit an officer on the head with a flagpole, according to the agreed statement of facts  ....

Top court dismisses police attempt to appeal G20 class-action approval
Two class-action lawsuits arising out of the chaotic Toronto G20 summit more than six years ago appear destined for trial after the country’s highest court refused on Thursday to get involved.

Toronto’s police authorities had wanted the Supreme Court of Canada to stop the legal actions in their tracks. The court, however, declined. It also ordered the police services to pay costs of the appeal.

Last year, a tribunal convicted Toronto police Supt. Mark Fenton of misconduct for ordering the mass arrests. He was given a formal reprimand and docked 30 days’ vacation. Fenton is appealing.
