Do you need a hug or cuddle???

You may remember a while ago I did a segment on the show about renting friends.

For those who are too busy to make their own friends and simply want a companion to go to a movie, wedding, whatever, can rent a plutonic friend to accompany them.

It’s not a dating service. No sex, no strings attached, just a fee for a friend for the occasion.

And most importantly, no emotional baggage.  When you’re done you simply return them like a library book.

In our virtual world where nothing now is real, this is how some choose to make their way through their social inadequacies.

A sad sign of the times really.

Renting sex is the oldest profession, but this seems almost worse.

Now for those longing for human contract or touch, we have professional cuddlers. 

People who will hug and cuddle you (no hanky panky) for a fee.

Have we become so void of personal contact we have to pay for an emotionless monetary hug?

What’s next? Returnable mail order kids?

Wait, maybe that’s not a bad idea…..

Liberals want carbon tax. Good for Ontario or just another cash grab for a debt ridden government?

Enough of the political correctness...

Jan 12, 2015 5:00 AM

After my terrorist rant on Friday I received an email that included this…

"Please consider that not every Muslim is a terrorist and our culture does not teach us to be one either.”

The person then went on to say I was creating Islamophobia and I was creating verbal attacks on Islam.

I NEVER suggested that and am confused why this person accused me of such an anti-Islam stance.

I have said many times, most intelligent people know it is a very few radical fundamentalists that are using this religion to spread their hate.

I was NOT creating a verbal attack on Islam, nor did I ever elude to that.  More time spent on this issue takes away from the real problem.

The person went on to say, “Personally I was offended with the words you have chose to describe the terrorist"  

I called the terrorists barbaric.

If the execution of a Muslim policeman in the street while he begged for his life is NOT barbaric, I don’t know what is, other than perhaps a beheading.

Enough of the political correctness.

This is a problem that will only be solved when ALL communities work together to expose this hate of Western values (including freedom of speech).

Terrorists ARE barbarians, in case you are confused...

Jan 9, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

When unarmed Nathan Cirillo was shot in the back and killed at the War Memorial in Ottawa, other countries condemned the cowardly killing.

This while some Canadians, not only debated whether Cirillo was a hero or not, but whether the lunatic that shot him was a terrorist.

That same type of Canadian debate is happening now concerning the French attack that saw journalists executed for their cartoons.

A professor at Carlton University is saying we should not be using the term ‘barbaric’ to describe the terrorists involved.

Did he see the execution of a policemen in the street who was pleading for his life after being wounded?

The barbarians shot him in the head in the head just to finish him off.

Some are even saying the magazine should not have been as provocative.  Really?

Its statements like this that inflame the civilized world, not the term barbaric.

Thank goodness that inflammation does not lead to a beheading like it does in their culture.

I guess we are just supposed to lie down and give up the freedoms so many fought for, since these fundamentalist religious radicals are much more primitive and violent than us.

No way!

Shouldn't we be focusing on the cause, instead of Bill Cosby???

Jan 8, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Is there a person on the planet who does not know about the sexual allegations surrounding Bill Cosby?

I am not here to defend Bill Cosby. I believe where there is smoke, there is fire.

However it scares me when people start piling on a cause that, at this point, has not been proven in court.

Yes we all have a right to protest and make our feelings known.

But in all the hoopla of late around this case, we have to ask ourselves, what are we really trying to accomplish?

Are we trying to change the culture and make sure this doesn’t happen again, or are we just trying to convict Cosby in the court of public opinion?

Cosby has been disgraced long before his Ontario appearances.

At this point, wouldn’t our energy be better spent making cultural change instead of demanding blood revenge?

It isn’t the 1970’s anymore and we have come a long way on this issue, as we have many.

Cosby’s fate will unravel for us all to see, but is that the mission, or is it real change?

And yes attitudes have already changed. 

If they hadn’t, Jian Ghomeshi would still working at the CBC today, instead of answering allegations in court.

Let’s not forget, Ghomeshi is in court today because someone had the courage to step forward and file a charge, not because of a protest.

That is where the energy needs to be focused.

Sony introduces new Walkman, do you care?

Jan 7, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Sony has unveiled its new Walkman at the big electronics love in at Las Vegas.

For those of you who don’t remember, the original Walkman was introduced in the 80’s and allowed you to play your cassette tapes on a small device a bit thicker than a smartphone.

A great advancement from the transistor radio which only received AM and later FM radio.

The new Walkman will sell for about $1200.00 U.S. which is surprizing considering phones are much less money and do a lot more.

Sony is banking on the fact the new Walkman will have more storage space and better sound reproduction than a smartphone.

However in the end you are still listening to it with ear buds that limit how much of that great sound you will actually hear.

No matter how good your head phones are speakers are still better at reproducing a full frequency response.

So it’s a hefty price to pay for something that is redundant.

Raising the question, how long before they bring back the giant boom box and can the re-introduction of big hair be far behind?

Hope not!

I’m Scott Thompson.

Fantino is not a politician

Jan 6, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Whatever quality it is that makes a good politician clearly Julian Fantino doesn’t have it, and the prime minister finally recognizes that.

The PM replaced Fantino yesterday as Veterans Affairs Minister after only 18 months, instead installing MP Erin O’Toole, a former military man.

O’Toole’s experience in The Royal Canadian Air Force will work well with veterans but many thought Fatino’s policing experience would do the same.

Although his policing experience didn’t seem to help him in dealing with the native protests in Caledonia, another sore spot with Ontarians.

Fantino’s ‘my way or the hiway’ approach may work when apprehending criminals but does little to build consensus or create warmth within government.

His walking away from questions while veterans pressed for answers was another example of this man’s inability to bring sides together, not to mention downright disrespectful.

What worked in Fantino’s old world as police executive has failed him as an elected official?

In short, you have to be approachable and at least perceiving to give a damn.

The question now is will Harper keep him to secure Fatino’s votes in Vaughan or drop him for someone more huggable.

Let’s be honest. Fatino is the last person you’d expect to see shaking hands and kissing babies at an election campaign BBQ.

And his record is nothing to brag about.

Trying to take down the decorations

Jan 5, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Yesterday I found myself exactly where I was 2 weeks ago.

Up to my ying yang in Christmas Tree needles.

As I contemplated taking down this year’s edition, I kept thinking to myself, didn’t I just set this thing up?

Not looking forward to my red, itchy forearms I started to drag the storage bins upstairs for the official dismantling.

It seems taking down the decorations takes longer than putting them up.

Perhaps because the kids who were very eager to set it all up are nowhere to be found when taking it down.

However the denial came to a screeching halt when they heard me opening the step ladder for the trek to the top to remove the star.

Before my foot hit the first rung they all came running, “What are you doing?” they cried!

I’m taking down the tree I said.  “But why?” they asked like little Cindy Lou Who.

The holiday is over I answered.

“No! Not until we’re back to school!” they begged.

So I folded up my ladder, and will try again tonight.

December 2014


Thank you!!!

Dec 23, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Yesterday we hit a milestone at CHML and we have to thank you for helping us get there.

With this year’s CHML Christmas Tree of Hope campaign we broke through the $5 million raised threshold.

That means over $5 million has been raised and $5 million has been handed out to various children’s charities in the greater Hamilton/Burlington area.

That doesn’t include the toys that have been collected along with non-perishable food and clothing.

The Tree of Hope campaign started back in 1976 as a way make sure all kids get a Christmas.

What it has grown into today is truly inspirational.

And with taking over the great work Jimmy Lomax and his family did for 50 years with Operation Santa Claus the Tree touches Hamilton in many different ways.

This year we had toys arriving in November long before the decorations and tree were even up.

Another sign of how this city has embraced the CHML Children’s Fund.

Thank you for helping us help the kids!

You still have time to help www.900chml.com  for details.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Ladies leave the mall! It's the men's turn!

Dec 22, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Gentleman start your engines!

Ladies get the heck out of the way!

Today marks the official start of the men’s Christmas shopping season.

Ladies you must drop everything in your arms now and leave the building.

The mall no longer belongs to you.

You have had all year to enjoy your shopping experience it’s now time to let the big boys play.

Helmets and shoulder pads on!

Even your local Walmart isn’t safe for those not accustomed to shopping with men.

The game is much more technical, much more focused and way faster.

The last thing us guys need now is women dilly dallying in front of us and clogging up the cashiers.

And let’s not even talk about the parking.

Gentlemen, it’s your time, game on!

I’m Scott Thompson.

How does a Korean hacker stop a U.S. movie premiere?

Dec 19, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Are you having a hard time digesting the fact that a Korean hacker has shut down the release of a major U.S. movie, The Interview.

Sony has pulled the movie from its Christmas release under threats of a terrorist attack after many movie houses expressed safety concerns.

The comedy depicts journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after securing an interview with him.

Apparently the leader can’t see the satire and has threatened war, if released.

There is a lot of discussion around whether removing it was the right or wrong thing to do.

Should we cower to terror threats?  Do we let outsiders dictate our cultural freedoms? Our freedom of speech?

When asking questions regarding business, follow the buck.

A threat like this could kill the season’s movie business if theatre goers stay away because ‘The Interview’ is playing in the same complex.

As far as war?  Yes there may be one.

However this war will not be fought on the battlefield, or by a lone wolf terrorist who inflicts violence in a movie theatre.

This is a cyber-war fought within its infrastructure, with the potential to bring big business to its knees, and is the great neutralizer of all world powers.

I’m Scott Thompson.
