Holy August 1st Batman!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Hey there bloggeronies! What is a happening? Well it is hot out for one thing and still no Acadia Axemen hockey schedule up! C'mon people are pestering me now for when the first game is and stuff! Well SMU's game with the Montreal Carabins had to be moved from the 23rd to the 22nd because of the Rolling Stones concert in Halifax, even worse the Carabins had to take hotel accomodations alongside the Bedford Basin because of everything in the city being booked up! Man that ol Mel Gibson should keep his ol trap shut eh? Sometimes it is best not to babble while lapping up the ol booze...or driving some 85 miles in a 45 zone..tsk tsk...
Oh and for those who did not know what Anti-Seitism is, i took the liberty of borrowing this from Wilkpedia:

Anti-Semitism (alternatively spelled antisemitism) is hostility toward or prejudice against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group, which can range from individual hatred to institutionalized, violent persecution. The highly explicit ideology of Adolf Hitler's Nazism was the most extreme example of this phenomenon, leading to a genocide of the European Jewry.
Though the general definition of anti-Semitism is hostility or prejudice towards Jews, a number of authorities have developed more formal definitions. Holocaust scholar and City University of New York professor Helen Fein's definition has been particularly influential. She defines anti-Semitism as "a persisting latent structure of hostile beliefs towards Jews as a collective manifested in individuals as attitudes, and in culture as myth, ideology, folklore and imagery, and in actions – social or legal discrimination, political mobilisation against the Jews, and collective or state violence – which results in and/or is designed to distance, displace, or destroy Jews as Jews."
Professor Dietz Bering of the University of Cologne further expanded on Professor Fein's definition by describing the structure of anti-Semitic beliefs. To anti-Semites, "Jews are not only partially but totally bad by nature, that is, their bad traits are incorrigible. Because of this bad nature: (1) Jews have to be seen not as individuals but as a collective. (2) Jews remain essentially alien in the surrounding societies. (3) Jews bring disaster on their 'host societies' or on the whole world, they are doing it secretly, therefore the anti-Semites feel obliged to unmask the conspiratorial, bad Jewish character."
There have been a number of efforts by international and governmental bodies to formally define anti-Semitism. The United States Department of State defines anti-Semitism in its 2005 Report on Global Anti-Semitism as "hatred toward Jews — individually and as a group — that can be attributed to the Jewish religion and/or ethnicity."[9]
In 2005, the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC), a body of the European Union, developed a more detailed working definition: "Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities. In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for 'why things go wrong'."

Whew...Mr Gibson..this is not good.

Wait...hold the phone...

Well i worked all of last weekend, worked the sidewalk sale, picked up a copy of Ong Bak (kickass flick!) Then i went and hung out with a friend and went to the Drive in in Coldbrook! Actually we went to Harvey's in New Minas first, my friend ordered a veggie burger and did the staff ever look pissed off to have to make it! Anyways we went to see You, Me and Dupree which was hysterical! I was laughing at the guy from the 40 Year Old Virgin that was stealing Matt Dillon's porn collection from his garbage! My Mom and my brother are going away for the weekend to Cape Breton, i would go but i have to work (Tomorrow is my only day off!) so not parties here this weekend! Nuts! Anyways Tuesday i am putting the Mystery Machine into the shop, so no long distances for me anyways, well i need to finish off the backyard, shower and then go from there! Have a good one!
