  1. Means

    Means was a Christian Post-hardcore/Melodic hardcore band from Regina, Saskatchewan. The band was formed in 2001 under the name of Means 2 An End as a 3-piece by main-songwriter/lyricist Matt Goud. They were originally from the small city of Dauphin, Manitoba. In 2003, they relocated to Regina, SK. They eventually integrated more and more elements of hardcore into their sound and dropped "2 An End" from their name. After many years of touring, the band began to accumulate a large fanbase. It was around this time, in 2005, that original bassist Blair Roberts quit to pursue a family. He was replaced by Dylan Johnstone. They remained a 3-piece until mid-2006 when Todd joined so Dylan could switch to lead vocals. This era of the band saw them switch to a mainly Metalcore sound inspired by Shai Hulud and Misery Signals.The group toured in the US and Canada constantly, and was featured in the June 2007 issue of Alternative Press magazine as well as multiple other publications. Their 2007 album, Sending You Strength, was released in the US on Facedown Records. Means disbanded after a series of farewell shows in select Canadian cities as well as a few US cities. They played their final show to a sold-out crowd at the Riddell Centre in the University of Regina on November 28, 2008. This show was captured on video and given out to friends of the band.

  2. Jason Rantz:

    They'll just have to deal with it … And I think that this is a strategy from the Democrats that just doesn't work anymore, when you call everyone racist for every single thing that they say and do, then everything is racist, and it no longer means anything. So it doesn't have the sting anymore, and I think Republicans are aware of that. And frankly, they might play into that expectation that they ask a simple question that might just be a little bit tinged with some criticism. And then they're going to get attacked and they'll make that into a strategy to push back against how far left the Democratic Party has become.
