How Old Are You?

It's Friday, it's a long weekend, so, here's an interesting site.

I felt young all over again after taking this test!

What is your real age?

How did you do? My real age ended up being 39.7 (more than 10 years younger, YAHOO)and life expectancy was 87.3.

Thanks to my American friend who sent me the link.

"World's Largest Pig Roast"

If the Conservatives had done this, the opposition would have been SCREAMING for an apology and yet, because the Liberals did it, it's okay?

Let me give you a list of why this is NOT funny:

1. Shows torture.
2. Disrespects the Prime Minister, big time.
3. Calls the Prime Minister of our country a pig.
4. Has the leader of the opposition Dion, turning the spit, torturing the PM.
5. Has a pig basting the PM, implying that pigs are better than our PM.
6. "World's Largest Pig Roast", calling all Conservatives pigs, or calling our PM a big pig.
7. "See Harper's Conservatives go up in flames", so more torture coming?
8. Burning of Conservatives, like they burnt witches, way back in the unenlightened days?

I could go on, add to my list if you are as disgusted by this as I am. Oh, by the way I showed my husband this "cartoon" and he wanted proof that I wasn't just getting this from another blogger, (THANKS Steve, this needs more exposure) so I showed him, this:

Harper has broken trust of Canadians, says Dion

CTV's Roger Smith, in St. John's for the caucus, told Newsnet about one small item in demand at the meeting.

"The hottest-selling item here, this apron, selling for $20 by the Young Liberals," he said.

The apron shows Prime Minister Stephen Harper on a spit with an apple in his mouth. Dion is turning the spit, and a hog is basting Harper.

"Coming soon: The world's largest pig roast. See Harper's Conservatives go up in flames," reads the text.

I didn't make this up! I'm not allowed to! The Conservatives hold their caucus meeting and ask for some privacy, they get slammed for days by the press. The Liberals hold their caucus meeting and get rave reviews, only CTV dares to show this despicable apron. Why? Well the media thinks it's funny, they see nothing wrong with it! There is no bias in the media, there is no bias in the media, there is no bias....

Young Criminals GET Punishment Act!

Well, well, it appears the Conservative message is breaking through, into the light! We need to get tough on youth commiting violent crimes, all it took was a former politicians' son to get stabbed and another old lady to get beaten by youth thugs!

N.S. Premier wants teens gone wild corralled

HALIFAX — A 15-year-old girl stared blankly at the courtroom floor Wednesday as the Crown recounted how she allegedly beat a senior citizen with metal table legs in what appears to be a random, yet violent attack.

The young girl, who can't be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, sat stone-faced as Crown attorney Bob Nisbet described how she and two other teens allegedly chased the 66-year-old woman on a dark city walkway, saying nothing as they repeatedly struck her.

“It was a meaningless bit of violence,” Mr. Nisbet said in court as the accused, a baby-faced teen with long, dark hair, fiddled with her hands and glimpsed occasionally at her mother. “She received numerous blows.”

Nice, randomly beat up an old lady with metal table legs. Now, I bet they just found those table legs, and were just carrying them to a dumpster, when they thought some rapist was attacking them, so they beat him up. They were shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you when they realized it was really an old lady they had mistaken for a rapist.

That's their story, and they are sticking to it, or some such tale that the bleeding heart judge will buy, and let them out on house arrest, AGAIN!

What is ironic is that now, we hear this:

The bail hearings come just as Nova Scotia Premier Rodney MacDonald urged Ottawa to toughen Canada's Youth Criminal Justice Act in the wake of a spree of brutal attacks by young people.

Where have you been, Rodbaby? Yapping about the Atlantic Accord, instead of looking after your province, and now you want the Feds to listen to you?

Well, I'm sure the Feds, will have something about the Youth Criminal Justice Act, in the works, if you remember the Conservatives have always been the party of law and order.

Just the name itself, youth criminal justice act, sounds like you get youths who are criminal, and they get to decide what justice they think should be metted out to their victims, then they act, like killing a rival drug dealer, beating an old lady, don't worry about punishment, not going to happen with our courts.

Maybe the Conservatives should bring in a "Young Criminals GET Punishment Act", there that fixes it. Now let's see some teeth put back into law and order, and most especially our courts!

Oh, and just to lighten things up a bit! Someone at Canoe, thinks the C-17 is Sexy!!

The gigantic, 200-tonne bird of steel is sexpected to have an effect on Canadian troop confidence as they continue to battle with Taliban insurgents, Maisonneuve said in a short interview shortly after landing.

"This plane will have a positive impact on the morale of the troops. Speaking with my colleagues, I can tell you that everyone is happy to know that we have modern tools at our disposal and a better (transport) capacity than before," he said.

Well, sexpected to have an effect on the troops, might not be the effect the military wants from troops away from home for months regarding a plane.

The Desperate Know No Borders!

Alberta complains about being screwed by the Feds. Newfoundland complains about being screwed by the Feds. Quebec complains about being screwed by the Feds. There comes a time when Canadians have got to stop naval gazing, and start opening their eyes to what is going on in other nations.
We are learning more about Afghanistan, but what about those people in Africa that also need our help?

Crumbs all that's left in Africa breadbasket

Two months ago, Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's 83-year-old leader, ordered stores to slash the rising prices of basic commodities to such levels that manufacturers could no longer turn a profit.

The result: They stopped producing their goods, leaving supermarket shelves barren and the populace hungry.

Two weeks ago, a 29-year-old security guard from the town of Mutare reportedly stabbed a colleague to death because he thought the man stole his 22-pound bag of cornmeal.

The country's inflation rate - the world's highest - topped the 7,000% mark in July.

When delivery trucks do arrive at shops, droves of people appear instantly, forming lines that wrap around streetcorners.

"We must queue two hours for bread," said a 25-year-old security guard, waiting on a line outside one of the city's major supermarkets. "Two hours for bread! This country has big problems, my friend."

Look, my Dad is 80, but I wouldn't trust him to rule a country.

What bothers me is that the media is more interested in Dion meeting with Williams, than what is really happening to real people in our world. Why wouldn't the media be on this story? Are they just so Liberal that they can't tell Canadians about the sad state Africa is in, or is it because their GOD Trudeau really liked Mugabe? Like he loved Castro and any other dictator he could meet.

Dated but worth the reading. "We started treating them as enemies of our government and the enemies of our people... and so we shall continue," he said.

So, where are the lefties? Are they protesting about this? NO. All is quiet on the African front.

Who Has The Power?

This has been an interesting two weeks. I had a multifamily garage sale, made $600, but that isn't the interesting point. Our back alley was all chewed up by the huge garbage/recycling trucks that come down the alley. We now get two trucks, one for garbage, the other for recycled material, this means 4 trips down our alley. We had a huge hole in our alley, that was taking out our cars left and right, so I put a big sign out to warn people coming to our garage sale, and who showed up? One of our city counsellors, who promised to get it fixed. Which I have to admit, he did, just one week later, our alley was fixed, so thanks.

Then today we got a candidate who wants to be our new counsellor show up at our door. His big qualification for the job is that he forced University students to pay for a bus pass, whether they used the bus or not, kind of like the Liberal plan to make all people pay for a universal daycare, whether they use daycare or not. He's not getting my vote.

Here is the problem we face as voters, a city representative does not have to declare whether they are Liberal, Conservative, Green or NDP, but once elected their mindset dictates how they vote.

We have three levels of government, federal, provincial and municipal. Both the federal and provincial candidates have to declare what party they support, not so the municipal candidates. Yet they are the ones who get our roads cleared, get our potholes fixed, their impact on our everyday live is greater than the federal MP's, so why don't we know what party they are aligned with? This guy was NDP, through and through, just reading his brochure tells me that, yet we ignore the municipal politicians, we should not, they are the ones with all the power over our quality of life.

Support The Troops, Not The Mission? BS

Okay, I'm sick and tired of the lefties mantra, "I support the troops, but not the mission". BS! This gives me a headache, because it's not possible to do both.

First of all, how many people really know what our troops are trained to do? Do they understand that they have guns, and know how to use them, to you know, kill the enemy? They have tanks, grenades, bombs, and other useful tools that they use to help them survive, while killing terrorists. This I suspect is the problem for lefties, our troops are trained to do a job, very few of us would be willing to do ourselves.

Police, firefighters, and paramedics all help people. Let a police officer actually use their guns when under attack, the lefties shout "police brutality", and the criminal becomes the victim. That's how their brains work, violence by anyone is wrong, even if it's someone like our troops who are protecting the very freedoms that we hold dear. Don't even get me started about our liberal judges, they disgust me.

Should we pull all police off our streets, because some of them have gotten killed this year? How about firefighters, maybe they shouldn't go into fires anymore, some of them have been killed this year too.

Go over to the G&M, if you can stand it, the comments there give a good idea of how lefties think, they are going to wear black on Fridays, because wearing red to support our troops is too American. BS, they are upset because Canadians ARE shouting them down just by wearing red on Fridays and putting stickers on their cars. How they must hate seeing those stickers. How they must cringe when they actually see a real soldier. Remember the "Troops in our cities" Liberal ad, that was approved, but was never "officially" released, that's their mind set. Troops bad. Period!

Here's a taste of some of the comments:

M j from Canada writes: What colour should I wear if I don't support the troops? Standing armies are a shameful waste of public money, particularly for a socialist democracy.(my bolding) Return one of those big planes and feed Canada's hungry for a YEAR with the money. I'll support that.

evelyn robinson from Canada writes: This is not about troops support; this is the government's attempt to
brain wash the public to pretend to support the war.
Ridiculous; to claim that wanting our withdrawal from the mess in Afghanistan means we do not support the troops. Leaving the troops in Afghanistan to die or get maimed is NOT support.
Wear black/ much more appropritate to mourn those we have already lost.

So, forgive me if the "I support the troops but not the mission" crap, gets called what it is, BULLSHIT!

Lefties Killing Van Doos!

These are Afghan children who escaped the Taliban and had to live in refugee camps.

You can bet the Taliban have heard about Quebec's lack of support for our troops. You can bet that they are going to be out to get them, because the lefties have "cut and run" on all of our troops, not just the Van Doos.

Another two of our brave soldiers have paid the ultimate price, my condolences to the families. I blame the lefties, from the Mayor of Calgary, who won't even allow decals supporting the troops, to the opposition leaders who are so intent on winning votes, that they have forgotten the fact that these are real Canadians, fighting a real enemy.

Both parties say they "support the troops", but neither does, and that's just sad. The Liberals are now so left of center that they won't even vote for a mission that they started! Who does Dion OWE for his leadership? I don't really care, what I care about is the fact that the defeatist attitude of the opposition, is putting our troops in more harm. That ticks me off.

Let's send Dion and Layton to Afghanistan so they can see first hand the great job our troops are doing. They should go while the crops of poppy are being harvested, a very dangerous time for not only our troops, but for Afghan kids coming home from school.

Life is cheap to lefties, even when an election is years away. As a Mother of two kids, I am so glad that we live in Canada, I can't imagine how the Afghanistan Mom's can live with the fear of losing a child. After you have carried a child in your womb for nine months, that child becomes your life, your reason for living, every Mom will tell you that, but, because these are Afghan children, they don't mean as much as Canadian children? Hogwash! It appears that the lefties don't care, not for our soldiers, and not for the Afghan people.

The Conservatives want to win the female vote, here's the way. Bring the focus onto the Afghan children, show us Mom's how they are living and what our country is doing to improve their lives. It's not enough to say more females are in school, show us some pictures, I can guarantee that any Mom, anywhere will support the party that is helping those babies. Look at how beautiful they are, nobody should live in fear, especially not children!

Lefties spout about supporting the helpless, but I guess when it comes right down to it, the hopeless are their supporters.

All About Jelly Beans, Not Water!

Okay I watched most of the news conference today. I have to admit that PM Harper, was really funny when he talked about two standards for jelly beans. Poor opposition, they are yapping about water, and it turns out it was all about jelly beans!

If you didn't catch all the fun, you can find it at CTV. Go to the videos on the right (HA) and get the whole media scrum, not just the sound bites during the news hours.

I have to give CTV two thumbs up for their coverage compared to CBC, not that either was worthy of watching, just that CTV provides the whole media scrum (or is that media scum?)on their internet site.

What is really sad is that NDP MP, Peter Julian actually appeared more sensible than Dion, now that is truly scary! Watch both segments and see if you agree. Both are still wrong, but Dion appears to try and make everyone think PM Harper is Bush lite, or at least I think that's what he said. Dion is no politician, he's in way over his head, and if you watch the clip, you will see a certain arrogance that he displays, smug little grins, that signal he thinks he is better than us. He might score some points on PM Harper, if we could understand him, but oh well, it was the Liberals who made him their leader, they have to live with him, not us.

Last comment, I noticed that President Bush, called PM Harper, Stephen this time, not Steve.

Protesters Gassed, DUHHHH!

Hello, protesters, did you think you could burn the American flag, and throw rocks at police, and NOT get gassed?

Dumb people, let's march to the gates, oh, police are there, let's antagonize them with our dogs, burning the American flag and let's just be a$$holes, that will make our cause look like a good one to support. Let's mask our faces because our company might realize what idiots they are employing. Ah, forget that one, most Canadians were busy working, the only ones able to protest are welfare bums. Sick, sad people, they didn't even know what they were protesting.

Good job Quebec police, thanks for keeping the idiots away from our leaders. Thanks for making sure that the leaders of Mexico, Canada, and the US were safe. Can you imagine the embarrassment if one idiot had pelted a leader of another country with a rock? The media is already yapping about rubber bullets being shot at the protesters, I say, that's what they deserve.

The sadist thing for the protesters is that watching the news coverage, I had NO clue what they were protesting. All I saw were masked protesters burning an American flag.

What really ticked me off, was someone making a dog bark and threaten the police. This person obviously has no balls, and they put their dog in danger of being shot, as the dog was a clear danger to the police. But I suspect that's what the dog handler wanted, to get his dog killed, so he could make a big deal about it. What a bottom feeder.

Protest Or Prosper?

Okay I watched Maude Barlow, that's one silly lady! What struck me is her organization is called "Council of Canadians" NOT "Council for Canadians", that kind of says it all doesn't it? So, what do they do FOR Canadians? It appears that they organize a rally, that attracks at most 500 people, to protest what?

That's the problem, they don't even know what they are protesting. Most popular complaint I've heard from the lefties is that they won't have microphones at the meeting, therefore they are secretly plotting the take over of.............?? Our water? Oil? Oh, you fill in the blank, because I really have no clue what they want, and I suspect even if they got what they wanted (if they knew what they were protesting)they wouldn't be happy.

Shhhhh, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), is secret. Behind closed doors, they are plotting the takeover of Canada. The real problem is that about 20 high powered CEO's from some of the biggest companies are invited, and the protest groups aren't. That must frost their britches, actual productive people can meet with the PM and Presidents, but not the lefty hords. Saw some NDP MP whining, listen buddy, if your party ever gets into power, then you too can make some decisions about the direction our country should take, but until that happens, shut-up!

The way these lefties talk, PM Harper should consult Parliament if he wants to take a ...................walk. HA!

Get it into your heads lefties, the Conservatives are the government, and they do not have to ask you for permission to run this country. If you and your special interests groups don't like it, bring this government down, it's in your power. Just what I thought, chickens.

Oh, and that bulk water agrument, well it was used years ago when Free Trade was being debated, it didn't work then, it won't work now.

Do I want a trucking corridor from Canada to Mexico, where all the rules are the same? Yup. It's sad that it's more likely that 3 countries will agree before our own provinces will. So, protest or prosper, get out of our way Maudie and your little band of capitalist haters, because I prefer to prosper!

My Grandma always told me to avoid a boy with no lips, I wasn't sure what she ment until until now. She told me a guy with no upper lip was weak. So who has no upper lip ladies?

Okay I didn't nitty pick and find a "bad" photo of Dion, seriously, he has no lips, look at every photo you see of him, no upper lip! Granny was one smart lady!

What is Layton covering up, maybe a weak upper lip? No lip, no trust.

So, ladies, who has the lips you might want to kiss? Bet Dion is last on your list, he is on mine.

Trivial crap you say? Nope, that means you don't understand women, a guy with no upper lip, has no balls. My Granny understood that all those years ago, so do I.

Garage Sales, A Canadian Institution? NOT

Have been having a garage sale the last two days, one to go! Have made about $500 so far, we had a lot of junk other people wanted! Thank goodness, after tomorrow I will be able to park my car in the garage during the winter, no more scrapping windows in 30 below!

My most interesting observations are about the people who have wondered through our garage in the last two days. It's like a mini UN. All shapes, all sizes, all religions, all languages, all looking for a bargain.

My take for those who are looking to have a garage sale soon? They are a lot of fun, and you can't categorize people, such as all Chinese will bargain, some do, some don't. We had three Muslim women who bought about $70 worth of stuff and didn't haggle once. Then we had one Chinese gentleman, who wanted everything for less than half price, the next Chinese couple paid full price for everything.

Rule number 1, is don't assume!

Rule number 2, if you think you will never sell it, it will be the first thing sold! Get real junk out there, I sold a half used air freshener!

Rule number 3, let them bargain, you don't want it and they do. Get it out of your house, and into someone else's, then it's their problem. Our hamster cage is now taking up space, but not in my house!

Rule number 4, have fun, and get your neighbours involved.

Rule number 5, after 1, it's time for a drink, you will make more sales and have more fun doing it!

Rules 6 to 10, refer to rule number 5, and repeat!

Our new neighbours had never seen a garage sale, they have only been in Canada for a year, they bought an air hockey game and a scooter, and couldn't believe that this was allowed by the government, for only an $18 permit. I expect to be going to their garage sale next year!

Garage sales, a Canadian institution, I think NOT, everybody loves them, no matter what ethnic background!

BARKING Up The Wrong Tree!

The law clearly states that guide dogs can NOT be refused service, or entrance to any business, well last time I checked, a cab company is a business.

I foster guide dogs. My first guide dog in training is still the love of my life.

His name is Pride, and he is a seeing eye dog for a wonderful person, who's life has been improved immensely by this dog.

Our second guide dog in training ended up being one of the most awesome assistance dogs you have ever seen.

Her name is Aspen, and she helps her human by picking up dropped items, opening doors, and listening for fire alarms, as she is also a hearing dog. She's one serious dog, until she's not working, then she's pretty nutty.

Here, she is stalking the baskets I was getting ready to plant. Such a smart dog, I had just brought the baskets in from the garage, and I think she was looking for mice. Yikes!

My point is that these dogs improve peoples lives, religion has nothing to do with what they do, although they both went to Church with me, I don't think they understood the sermons, slept through them mostly. (The dogs, not me!!)

The cabbies that won't allow these wonderful dogs in their office (cabs) are BARKING up the wrong tree if they think they can break the law because of their religion.

VANCOUVER - A blind man denied service from a Muslim taxi driver for "religious reasons" has been awarded $2,500, the result of a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal discrimination settlement reached on Friday and made public yesterday.

Bruce Gilmour estimates that Vancouver taxi drivers have passed him over "a hundred times, maybe 150 times" since he acquired his first guide dog in 1984. But an incident one evening last year with North Shore Taxi Ltd. was "the straw that broke the camel's back."

Mess with my dogs, you mess with me, my business will go elsewhere, and I will protest loudly.

Who do we protect, the disabled and their special dogs, or Muslims because "maybe" their religion tells them dogs are unclean. Easy choice for me.

Opposition Hungry!

Hungry for any news coverage they can get, it's been a long dry summer for the lefties. Dion's ratings as best PM, have gone up because no one has seen him all summer, not a good thing, because once Parliament gets back into gear, he can't hide anymore.

I always gauge what the public is thinking politically by my husband, who might vote Conservative (I will send my youngest son in as a spy next election). If he is reacting to the political news, I pay attention.

This summer our big argument has been about global warming, he has heard from his work buddies that the Gore movie is good, I told him to rent both a "A Very Convenient Untruth" and "The Great Global Warming Swindle" so we could both form our own opinions. Okay, maybe my opinion is already set, but his isn't. He could not find the Great Global Warming Swindle to rent, and I refused to watch only one side, so the issue has been stalled.

Meanwhile, our MP dropped by our neighbourhood block party, what a wonderful surprise! He knew that only about 30 people would be there, but he still made the time to drop by, you can bet that all people there will vote for him next election. What those 30 people will do is talk to their co-workers about how nice he is, how approachable, how much like them he is, so take those 30 people, and start to multiply that by everyone they talk to, and you have maybe 200 to 300 people voting for him, not bad for one very personal appearance, to one small gathering. One smart politician, good for him!

So, the opposition was singing the same old tune yesterday, they didn't like the cabinet changes, because, well, uhmmm, well, no lefties got into cabinet. Dion was especially stupid, he hated the changes before they had even been announced, just like the budget, duh. Dion the supposedly great intellectual, is a dud. At University we always shrugged at the art majors, they were the bottom feeders, not able to get into engineering or business, they took sociology courses. We took sociology courses to help raise our grade points, because without even attending you could get a 7 or 8, while the core courses we were taking took hours of labs or research. Dion got his PHd in France, lived with his girlfriend/now wife there for years, wonder why he came back here?

Layton was on Duffy spouting off about nothing, but looking well put together. He's so phony, it's actually sad. Is he still living in subsidized housing?

Dawn Black and Coderre, what a pair of idiots spouting their lines, Conservatives bad, lefties good. Hezbollah Coderre is too funny, called PM Harper, the President, kind of like Williams, the Screamer, calling him Steve, both whiners, both should be given more air time, they only help the Conservatives.

Opposition hungry, yup, but it's making them look and sound stupid, but that's fine with me. That's my politically uninterested husbands opinion too.

Same Game, Same Players

Liberal Senator Lavigne, still a Senator, facing fraud charges, you won't find this on CBC or CTV, but I managed to track down one article:

The RCMP announced Tuesday that it has laid charges of fraud over $5,000, breach of trust and obstruction of justice. Lavigne is due to appear in court Sept. 18.

Allegations of misconduct were first raised in 2005, when neighbours complained that one of Lavigne's office staff had cut down trees on their property. That discovery led to assertions that Lavigne had ordered the staffer to carry out personal business unrelated to Senate duties, and that Lavigne himself had misappropriated Senate funds for his own use.

SHHH, don't tell anyone, it's just one more Liberal screwing the taxpayer, not a big deal, and hey they kicked him out of caucus, but not the Liberal party, so what does that say about Liberals? Same game, same players!

Abolish Tribunals

As a human being, I have rights, but I don't have the right to be falsely accused, and hauled in front of a tribunal, that smacks of witch hunts. So, who will protect me?

Maybe the Human Rights Tribunal, as they state: The purpose of the Canadian Human Rights Act is to protect individuals from discrimination. It states that all Canadians have the right to equality, equal opportunity, fair treatment, and an environment free of discrimination. The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) applies these principles to cases that are referred to it by the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC). The Tribunal is similar to a court of law, but is less formal and only hears cases relating to discrimination.

Only hears cases relating to discrimination, well that sounds wonderful, but just the use of the name Tribunal, makes me smell something burning.

So, let's look at the definition of tribunal:

tri·bu·nal (tr-bynl, tr-)
1. Law
a. A seat or court of justice.
b. The bench on which a judge or other presiding officer sits in court.
2. A committee or board appointed to adjudicate in a particular matter.
3. Something that has the power to determine or judge: the tribunal of public opinion.

It's number 3 that creates a problem for me. "the tribunal of public opinion". This is a dangerous power for any group to be given.

At the same time, the candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government, upon vital questions affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that extent practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal.
Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address by Lincoln, Abraham

Well, that says it all doesn't it! Abolish Tribunals!

Arctic Promise Kept!

Wow, even over at the lefty Globe and Mail 95% of the comments support PM Harper's Arctic announcement, funny though now the lefties are calling for the ice breakers that were supposedly too expensive before. Question is, will they give up their "national" daycare to get them? NO? Then what goodies will they give up to get those ice breakers?

Conservative Women, Tougher and Smarter

Big Globe and Mail article on the Cabinet shuffle, all about females.

As Prime Minister Stephen Harper prepares for a cabinet shuffle next week, he faces a gender-balancing challenge: Two jobs at risk belong to women and his party already suffers a gender gap with voters.

What ever happened to the most qualified gets the job? In a lefty world, the single Mom of two kids, who is in a wheelchair, and is an immigrant, should get whatever job she applies for, even if she isn't qualified for it.

Why don't more females try to be MP's? BIG one; you have to leave your babies for Ottawa. My babies are 14 and 11, I still would not leave them for weeks, sorry, they need their Mom, everyday, not just on weekends.

Liberals constantly spew the line about females not voting Conservative, I bet lots of them voted Conservative last election because of the $100 a month for each child under 6.

Let's look at two female politicians, Debra Grey and Belinda Stronach. I was at a rally recently for PM Harper, Debra Grey was there, she got lots of cheers, people still love her, she is one tough cookie. Standing waiting for PM Harper to appear, I started talking to a lady with a walker, this was another tough lady, had her babies at home with no help, bought the home while her husband was working.

So, let's compare Grey to Stronach. Debra fought hard and won the first Reform seat.
Grey was appointed interim leader of the Alliance and Leader of the Opposition. She was the first female Leader of the Opposition in Canadian history. Funny how the Conservatives have had the first female PM and the first female Leader of the Opposition, but supposedly females don't support the party.

Then there is Belinda, as a Conservative, I don't want to disrespect her, but as a female, I personally think she is an example of what females should not be, ever. She is the perfect example of how females are promoted for who they are, not what they can do. Money bought Belinda's spot as a MP, and later as a Minister, but where is she now, she QUIT, ran back to Daddy.

Belinda, more than even Hedy Fry, gave female MP's a bad name. She is a shining example of why females don't vote for other females.

So, in a battle between Debra and Belinda, my hard earned money would be on Debra, she did more to advance female politicians in Canada than Belinda could ever hope to do.

True Conservative women are stronger, smarter and way less wishy washy. We know our own minds, we do not have to be told by anyone how to think.

Conservative women, tougher and smarter.

Stand Up For Your Ministers PM Harper!

The media is trying to run the government, so far, PM Harper hasn't bought into their hysterics. I don't think he should now either.

Nearly half of Canadians think the Harper government lacks a clear agenda, a new poll suggests.

Or, nearly half of Canadians aren't even thinking about politics at this time of the year. I know, I'm not that interested right now, and I'm a political junkie!

The poll also indicated that only 36 per cent of respondents felt Prime Minister Stephen Harper needs to shuffle his cabinet - something sources say he is set to do next week.

Of those who did favour a shuffle, 11 per cent suggested a new environment minister is needed, nine per cent wanted a new face at defence, eight per cent suggested a new face at health, and six per cent want a new finance minister.

What this clearly indicates is that the media campaign against certain Ministers, isn't working. Only 36% thinks a shuffle is necessary, that means that 64% want NO shuffle, meaning that most people are happy with the Ministers! Of those 36% only 9% want a new defence Minister.......shouldn't that be like 80% want a new defence Minister, given how the media and opposition have been pounding on him? Yet 11% want a new environment Minister? Hold it, don't they know that there is a new environment Minister? Hasn't the media hammered on Gordon O'Connor as defence Minister, for close to a year, are people not listening to the media and the opposition parties? Don't people know that they should want a new defence Minister, not a new environment Minister? Get with the program people.

Here's my advice to PM Harper, leave O'Connor where he is, as a matter of fact, don't shuffle anyone, let them learn their portfolios, they will be more effective that way.

O'Connor is doing a better job than any defence Minister previously, he's tough, and doesn't take any BS from anyone, I love when the opposition asks some long contrived question, and he just gets up and says NO, and sits back down. He's what we need at defence right now.

PM Harper, don't get sucked into doing what the media wants, they will only gloat, and gain more power if you listen to them and the opposition. It's time to stand up for your Ministers, and against the opposition and media.

The Boom is off the Patch

As everyone knows Alberta is booming. Well actually, the boom is off the patch, things are quieting down, which isn't a bad thing. Quiet here in Alberta is still pretty hectic. Albertans aren't worried, the oil is still there, and heck, maybe we can get some of them there equalization payments, you thunk?

Lefties like to refer to us as rednecks, and we are supposed to be insulted. Do the lefties even know that a red-neck comes from working hard in the sun all day? Feeding people is a noble career, I wish I wasn't stuck in a city, my deepest desire is to start a "pick your own" vegetable farm. But liberals scoff at farmers, as the ruling last week shows, western farmers are not to be given the same freedoms as eastern farmers, discrimination I think.

I see the trucks and trains bringing goods to us and sending our goods on their way, and every time I do, I think of Ayn Rand's, Atlas Shrugged. When I first read it over 20 years ago, I thought it was a great fiction, with some hints of truth, now, I think it is very truthful, with hints of fiction. That's what liberals have done to our society, they praise the unproductive artist, and denigrate the productive farmer.

Personally, it makes me sick.

It makes me worry about my children's future, will the trucks and trains stop? Will the liberal values of sex (of any kind, swinger clubs come to mind), drugs, and as I get older, euthanasia, win out over conservative values of family, community, tough crime measures, and love of country?

Canadians have to get out of the cities and get back to their colonial roots. A deep love of country, with a big boost of common sense, added to pride of ownership, gives us a true Canadian, but liberals don't want that, they want sheep.

If you haven't read Atlas Shrugged, I highly recommend it, as you are reading it, substitute our political party leaders for characters in the book, it might open your eyes.

What really got me thinking about this was coming home from holidays, there had been a mudslide near Golden, and as we drove through, I could see parts of the highway dropping off, it was scary, and I told all my family not to go that way until the new road was opened. Atlas Shrugged, a train stuck in a tunnel in the mountains.

Crumbling roads, bridges falling, while special interest groups get millions of dollars, this is the Liberal legacy, this is Atlas Shrugged coming true. I suggest all like minded people come west, I feel that we are the last hope.

Read Atlas Shrugged, see who you identify with, who is your hero? Is the west the last hope, or are easterners going to wake up? For the sake of my country, I hope common sense prevails.

The boom is off the patch, because the lefties have made climate change a false issue.

Okay, for the last two weeks, I've barely talked to my family, my plants are wilting, cucumbers need to be pickled before they get too big to fit in the jar, my boys are eating junk food, and most disturbing, they are starting to call their Dad, Mom. Things are just not right.

They know where to find me, I'm on my computer, scouring Statistics Canada for needed material, to finish that last chapter of my book. Two weeks of getting up at 8:00 in the morning and working mainly without stop until 1:00 or 2:00 o'clock in the morning for royalties of $3,000 a year? I'M I NUTS!!!!!!!!

One chapter to go, deadline August 7th, birthday August 8th. You bet I'm going to "GET 'ER DONE", and if my publisher even dares to call me on my birthday to ask for edits, well, I'm too polite to actually tell him where to put the book, but I will think it.

Okay, breaks over, back to the demon edits. Hope to be back to normal on August 8th!

Third Best Front Yard In All Of Edmonton!

My neighbour won third place in the "Front Yards in Bloom" contest, that's a huge accomplishment! My husband and I went to the presentation tonight, to offer moral support, that's one of the great things about the contest, you get to know your neighbourhood and the people in it better. Everyone walking by stops, and comments, and I have noticed more homeowners in the area making an effort to plant some flowers.

If you missed the other pictures, guess what? I have more!!

Best part of the evening was that my neighbour's daughter drive down from Fort McMurray and surprised her Mom!

I think her son is happy that she won't be nominated again for a few years, so he won't have to be over every 3 days to mow the lawn.

Congratulations Neighbours!!! All that hard work really paid off!
