Re: “I hate my apartment building!

I hear you! I moved to a small building in a neighborhood full of expensive houses, thinking that I would be away from obnoxious students. I was correct for the first few years of living here. Then they started letting the most obnoxious people move into 2 of the units. WTF is wrong with people who have ZERO consideration for their neighbors?! People stomp up and down stairs like a herd of elephants at all hours of the night, blare music so that it sounds like it's in my apartment, rather than 2 floors above me, have ridiculous friends who pee right in the open in the back yard, smoke so much pot that the whole building reeks of the stench, etc. Some people have no home training! There are certainly a lot of assholes living in apartments in this city whose parents did a horrible job raising them, or they forget ever ounce of manners and respect for other people that their parents did try to instill in them.

Re: “Pipa transforms into The Brown Hound

I hope that the staff have had better training. I actually liked the food at Pipa - except the piri piri which is why I find it shocking that that's one of few things they'd keep on the menu! I knew that Pipa was going to close the last time I was there and saw the horrible menu changes they had made, and that on top of it, several of the items on the menu were not available, there was ONE waiter for the whole restaurant and a girl in training who was filling water. After 1.5 hours of not getting a single morsel of food, I went to have a chat with the waiter, and was told, "in fairness, you didn't have a reservation." Hello clueless!! A reservation is about whether there is room for us in your restaurant. Once you've seated us, you do NOT proceed to feed all the people who have come in after us and complete ignore us! Please Victoria please, train your staff and improve your menu. I really want to be able to support this place.

Re: “I thought these were sideWALKS

While I fully recognize that bicycling conditions in Halifax are far from ideal, I find that most of the bicyclists in Halifax think that they are above any rules or laws. They are largely a bunch of douchebags. I could go on and on ranting about them, but I'll leave it at that. I'll also say that I was recently in a much larger city where many people use bicycles as their main means of transportation and I did not see anybody being so stupid like the bicyclists of Halifax.

Re: “Idiots

You are so right. Drivers here are complete idiots. So many of them fail to look before pulling out into traffic, or look and still go ahead and pull out in front of you as if they are in some huge hurry and can't wait their turn… only to drive SO FREAKING SLOW! If you're going to go so slow, then you could freaking wait your turn instead of cutting me off and making me slam on my brakes. I truly detest Halifax drivers. The only thing worse is Halifax cyclists, who very randomly act like bicyclists-pedestrians-motor vehicles-back to bicyclists. Do people really wonder why so many pedestrians and bicyclists get hit by cars here?! Bunch of morons!

Re: “Occupy NS eviction: Who OKed the cowardly and shameful act?

Excellent piece, as usual! People who claim that the Occupy Movement has been unable to define its agenda haven't paid a bit of attention to anything other than corporate media, which by its very nature is designed to put out propaganda against such movements. If anyone could be bothered to go down there and talk to them, they will probably be very impressed by their accomplishments. They have dealt with some very difficult circumstances in very graceful ways (unlike Mayor Kelly!). And they have taken great care in taking care of those who are among the most vulnerable in our society - the "street kids" and other homeless people, many of whom have mental health issues, histories of being abused, or are addicted to drugs. Mayor Kelly would rather continue to abuse those people. What positive action has he ever taken to help the most vulnerable people? The Occupiers ought to be applauded for their willingness and ability to take these people in and make them feel part of a community.

It's not just Peter Kelly and the city councilors who should be ashamed of themselves, it's all the people who denigrate the Occupiers without having a clue what is going on in the world.

What happened yesterday, whether you agree with the eviction or not, was a travesty of social justice. You don't get thrown on the ground and dragged through the mud and your chest stomped on for leaving garbage on the curb for too long or for not salting your sidewalks. So why should you have that happen for disobeying this city by-law?!

We need a more just society for ALL, not just for the rich and for corporations!

Re: “Why they protest

Wow, Charles the Great... have you ever gone down there and spoken to the people at ONS? I suspect not, because what you wrote is complete gibberish! What they are protesting about are the problems of the 99% - or much of the 99% anyway. It's just that too many of the 99% live in fantasy land and they don't care enough to actually pay attention to what's really going on in the world and how it's impacting them. They would much rather spend all their time on their computer games, cell phones, and buying cheap stuff at WalMart regardless of what 5 year old in China made it. As long as there is cheap stuff to buy, why pay attention to reality?!!

I have a good job. I make a reasonably good income. I can afford to pay my student loan debts, as huge as they are. But the reality is that the education system is failing too many youth, and if Harper and his greedy war mongers had their way, all the money would go into building war machines and prisons and none of it would go into education, health care, or affordable housing. These are the problems of the 99%. And these are the things that the ONS/OWS people are protesting about. The zombies in the 99% ought to wake up and thank them for that (I have with donations of warm clothes and shoes) rather than siding with the 1%!! Get a clue people!!
