What the ... scam access?!?!?!?

You hear a lot of stories about how Facebook allows outside people to access you information. People you may not actually want to know who you are or hear from. I got to see just that type of ad on the right hand side of my Facebook screen today.

It is a link to a page people who frequent torrent sites have probably seen a lot. The page looks like an ad for jobs WITH Google. They have a fake claims to media coverage saying how good they are. Fake comments from happy customers. To protect them from being sued they have small print WAAAAAAAAAAAAY at the bottom telling you they aren't affiliated with Google and that the media coverage shown is made up. And when you try to leave the page you get a pop-up trying to get you to stay. A pop-up that won't let the page close unless you close it as well.

Basically, it is a bullshit scam site. THAT is the kind of company/people Facebook is putting up as legitimate advertisers and sponsors with access to YOUR Facebook page and information. Scammers and dating sites.

What the ... occupation?!?!?

My main problem with the whole "Occupy" movement in Canada has been their reason for existing. What exactly is it? Is it against Wall Street and what happened in the US financial system? Well, that didn't happen in Canada thanks to our banking regulations.

Listening to their spokesmen in the media just creates more confusion. One mouthpiece droned on in a CBC interview about how it was about Health Care. 35 Million people don't have it! Wait, the population of Canada is about 32-33 Million and we have universal coverage. Oh yeah, he was talking about US HEALTH CARE. So, these fucktards are "occupying" places in Canada to protest things that have happened, or are happening, in the US. Yeah, that will work. The Yanks are sure to listen to them. Not.

Now you have the "Occupy Vancouver" OccuTards planning on shutting down the port of Vancouver. Why? To show support for striking longshoremen in Washington state. Even the B.C. Federation of labour which runs the union at the port DOES NOT want them to block the port. And the OccuTards wonder why it is hard to take them seriously most of the time?

If they really want to protest the stuff that happened IN THE US they should hop on a bus and join the actual Occupy Wall Street movement.

Is Gainey still making decisions?!?!?

Work has been keeping me pretty busy and doesn't look to slow down until after the holidays. I still follow hockey though and was pretty much left shaking my head wondering what the hell is going on with the Habs after reading a story on another blog.

Montreal traded Spacek to Carolina for Kaberle. Kaberle? Really?!?!? Kaberle, who was so invisible in Boston that they DIDN'T want him back. Kaberle who is paid $3.5 Million a year to under perform.

Does Pierre Gauthier really want Montreal to improve? I know people jokingly called him Bob Gainey Light but it looks like he really is.

While I wasn't a big fan of Spacek this is ridiculous.

Changing views.

My father would talk about growing up and how, in the 20's and 30's when he was growing up, lobster was a poor man's food. Fast forward to today when it is viewed as a more prosperous person's food. It is hard now to see lobster as a poor man's food. A food that you wouldn't talk about. The times really change.
