New Years Funnies!

I know it's not Friday, but in the spirit (HA) of New Year's, I thought a few funnies would ring in the new year on the right note! I wish you all a Happy New Year! I want to thank you for all your comments and making blogging fun! I will keep blogging, if you keep commenting! Now to the funnies:

When an engineer owns a dog!

A Little Canadian Humor,
Forget Rednecks,
Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about Canucks.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from
September through May,
You may live in Canada.

If someone in a Home Depot store
Offers you assistance and they don't work there,
You may live in Canada.

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada.

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation
With someone who dialed a wrong number,
You may live in Canada.

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere
South of Detroit for the weekend,
You may live in Canada.

If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada.

If you know several people
Who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada.

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'
In the same day and back again,
You may live in Canada.

If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
During a raging blizzard without flinching,
You may live in Canada.

If you install security lights on your house and garage,
But leave both unlocked,
You may live in Canada.

If you carry jumpers in your car
And your wife knows how to use them,
You may live in Canada.

If you design your kid's Halloween costume
To fit over a snowsuit,
You may live in Canada.

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km --
You're going 90 and everybody is passing you,
You may live in Canada.

If driving is better in the winter
Because the potholes are filled with snow,
You may live in Canada.

If you know all 4 seasons:
Almost winter, winter, still winter,
And road construction,
You may live in Canada.

If you have more miles
On your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada.

If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly',
You may live in Canada.

If you actually understand these jokes,
And forward them to all
Your Canadian friends & others,
You definitely live in Canada.

One more bambi saved!
I hope you look better than this guy tommorrow!! Stay away from the rum and Pepsi's!!

After serious & cautious consideration . . .

Your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2009!
It was a very hard decision to make. So try not to screw it up!!!
My Wish for You in 2009

May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words . . . May 2009 be the best year of your life!!!

My Pick Of The Year!

My salute goes out to the people who line the Highway of Heroes to show their support for our troops! You represent all Canadians by honouring our fallen heroes. I will never be able to be there, so those of you who can be, have my thanks for going out in all kinds of weather to represent me and all Canadians.

Silent, sad salute for fallen

PORT HOPE — The sound of the three revving engines of the hearses was all that broke the mournful quiet cast along the Highway of Heroes yesterday.

None of the more than 400 men, women and children huddled in the cold across the Ontario St. overpass broke the salute of silence as the convoy of hearses bearing the flag-draped caskets of Sgt. Gregory Kruse, Pte. Michael Freeman and Warrant Officer Gaetan Roberge headed to Toronto.

Please click on the link and watch the video. I can not be there in person, but I am standing there in spirit with you!

I salute our brave troops for upholding Canada's flag with honour and valour. May 2009 be a kinder year for all people involved in conflicts.

Rum And Pepsi For New Years?

Why not rum and Coke anymore? Well, it's all about the drowning polar bears. You know those cute, playful bears that eat those cute seal pups and the occasional human. Why do we never see the white fur of the polar bear covered with baby seal blood? Those same polar bears that our northern people could hunt to keep themselves warm and fed in the winter, but that's now a BIG NO NO! They are so busy drowning because the arctic is melting, that Coca-Cola has joined up with WWF to save them. That's right, buy a Coke product to save the polar bears!

So, I clicked on the link about polar bear populations, and I got a nice map of where polar bears live, but no data on how many polar bears actually exist and how badly there populations are being reduced by climate change.

I went looking for actual facts about polar bear populations and wasn't surprised that Kate from SDA's had already posted the facts a year ago:

"We are concerned," said Mr. Kempthorne, that "the polar bears' habitat may literally be melting" due to warmer Arctic temperatures. However, when we called Interior spokesman Hugh Vickery for some elaboration, he was a lot less categorical, even a tad defensive. The "endangered" designation is based less on the actual number of bears in Alaska than on "projections into the future," Mr. Vickery said, adding that these "projection models" are "tricky business."

Looking at the facts, it appears those cute polar bears are safe from extinction, but Coca-Cola might be their next victim. I wonder if they know this little fact about polar bears:

There are records of polar bears going after humans at all times and
all places encountered. They are not the misunderstood sharks of the
frozen north. They are large, hungry, dangerous as hell mammals, and
in their human-avoidant behavior not at all like their close cousins
the grizzleys. At no time or place can you be even reasonably sure of
being safe out on the ice with one. Unless you're in a polar bear
proof cage. Or you and several persons in your group are armed with an
automatic 12 or 10 guage shotgun loaded with OO buck (a horror weapon
that will stop anything at 20 feet, excluding possibly elephant-- and
even then I would not want to be the elephant).

Maybe Coke should rethink their new campaign, because I'm not buying Coke until they stop this nonsense! Maybe Coke should go up north, and try to interview one of those starving polar bears, or maybe they should get Paul McCartney to cuddle up to one of their cubs, see how that photo shoot goes. HA!

Leave the polar bears alone, they are doing just fine without human interference, unless you want to be their next snack!

Blogless In Kelowna!

The sun trying to peek through the clouds!

What do you hear when you have no access to the internet?

It's normally easy for me to get up, go to Blogging Tories, and start my day reading what has been posted there before I go to work. My parents have the internet, but it's dial-up and they only have 5 hours a month, so I didn't bother with it. Instead, I watched what they watched. All I can say, is no wonder they are Liberals, they watched CBC, and drank in the pablum they were fed.

I hope Iggy listens to my Dad, he thinks the coalition is the only way the Liberals can go to get back into power. If enough Liberal supporters send emails in support of the coalition, Iggy, being a political newbie, might just think it's a good idea.

I haven't watched CBC in years, but I recommend it to everyone for a week. No cheating and watching any other channel, just watch CBC to get your news. See how quickly your brain atrophies. At least my brother-in-law recognized that all news, is lefty news, but don't tell that to my parents.

They talked about how crime in Kelowna is getting really bad, and that the judges should impose stricter sentences, they don't want marijuana legalized, they think the auto companies should not be bailed out, and that Vancouver's In-Site should be shut down, but they still vote Liberal. They are more Conservative than I am, but they watch CBC and they still believe PM Harper is "scary", that's what they have been told, they even believe in global warming and don't think the BC carbon tax is that bad, plus they like the huge garbage bins they have to roll to the curb, it makes them feel like they are doing something for the environment. Can you say brainwashed?

One week without the internet made me appreciate the Blogging Tories even more than ever. We don't always agree, but we are not automatons, listening 24/7 to CBC and believing the slop they feed viewers. So thanks Stephen and Craig, where would we go without the Blogging Tories site?

This Is So Sad, And Scary!

You all know my family just got back from a trip to Kelowna. What many who have never been to the Rockies don't know, is that the threat of avalanches are always present, not just in the outback, but on the Trans Canada Highway.

I hope that the last person missing will somehow be found alive, but I suspect that will not be the case.

Rescue crews find seventh body at avalanche site

Rescue crews have found a seventh body after avalanches struck a group of snowmobilers in a backcountry area near Fernie, B.C., on the weekend. One person is still missing.

The group was hit by back-to-back avalanches on Sunday, burying a total of 11 people. Three escaped, and officials began a desperate search for the remaining eight.

This is very sad news for all those families, my heart goes out to them. Meanwhile, at the Globe and Mail, some of the comments were disgusting and very uninformed:

Catalina Nina from Canada writes: I am wondering who pays the cost of rescue and care for those irresponsible faux-sportsmen. It's time to make that kind of people pay for themselves.
"That kind of people"??? I guess my family was irresponsible because we were traveling on the Trans Canada Highway.

As you drive through the Rockies, you see signs that say "Avalanche Area, Do Not Stop", and around Revelstoke you go through 8 snow tunnels like this one:

If that's not enough to convince Catalina that the danger exists not just to those who go snowmobiling in the outback, here is a picture taken on the Trans Canada, where we were stopped for over an hour because they were doing avalanche control.

My family thanks the dedicated people who keep the mountain roads clear, and the people who keep the avalanche threat to a minimum. To idiots like Catalina, I have no words to fight such stupidity.

Global Warming On Our Trip, Or Not!

We had a wonderful Christmas, I hope everyone else did too! Funny what a week without the internet can do for you.

As we were driving, we heard that PM Harper had appointed 18 Senators, and that Mike Duffy was one of them, then the station cut out, and through the mountains you only get CBC Radio if you are lucky, so I had to watch TV to get confirmation that it really was true. I'm happy for "The Duff", but sad for Conservatives because the only balanced TV reporter (except Rex Murphy) has now lost his voice, and we have lost ours as a consequence. Craig Oliver must be livid, maybe he can console Phil Fontaine, but the Senate appointments are old news for everyone but me.

Global warming hit us on both the drive to and from Kelowna. You would not have believed how the frozen waterfalls were melting because of all the cars driving through the mountains. It was very disturbing! (If you look really hard, the salt on the road has melted some of the ice.)

The only conclusion I can reach is that we must close all routes into BC so we can save the planet! Sorry Mom and Dad, but the BC carbon tax seems to be working so well that you BC'ers must be isolated so that the rest of Canada doesn't pollute your world. This might also help to keep BC Bud in BC, but I'm sure that pack mules through the mountains will still somehow make it to Alberta. HA.

I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed, and after white knuckling it through the mountains one more time, I leave you with this video, which expresses my joy that my family is once again home, safe and sound.

Okay, I'm not Celtic, but music is a unifier.

Christmas At The Gas Station!

We leave for Kelowna tomorrow morning, so this will be my last post until after Christmas. May everyone traveling home for Christmas arrive safely, and may you be wrapped in the loving arms of your family.

I found this modern version of the Christmas message and thought you would enjoy reading it:

The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn't been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. It was just another day to him. He didn't hate Christmas, just couldn't find a reason to celebrate. He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the door opened and a homeless man stepped through.

Instead of throwing the man out, Old George as he was known by his customers, told the man to come and sit by the heater and warm up. "Thank you, but I don't mean to intrude," said the stranger. "I see you're busy, I'll just go." "Not without something hot in your belly." George said.

He turned and opened a wide mouth Thermos and handed it to the stranger. "It ain't much, but it's hot and tasty, "Stew ... made it myself. When you're done, there's coffee and it's fresh."

Just at that moment he heard the "ding" of the driveway bell. "Excuse me, be right back," George said. There in the driveway was an old '53 Chevy. Steam was rolling out of the front. The driver was panicked. "Mister can you help me!" said the driver, with a deep Spanish accent. "My wife is with child and my car is broken."

George opened the hood. It was bad. The block looked cracked from the cold, the car was dead. "You ain't going in this thing," George said as he turned away.

"But Mister, please help ..." The door of the office closed behind George as he went inside. He went to the office wall and got the keys to his old truck, and went back outside. He walked around the building, opened the garage, started the truck and drove it around to where the couple was waiting. "Here, take my truck," he said. "She ain't the best thing you ever looked at, but she runs real good."

George helped put the woman in the truck and watched as it sped off into the night. He turned and walked back inside the office. "Glad I gave 'em the truck, their tires were shot too. That 'ol truck has brand new ........" George thought he was talking to the stranger, but the man had gone. The Thermos was on the desk, empty, with a used coffee cup beside it. "Well, at least he got something in his belly," George thought.

George went back outside to see if the old Chevy would start. It cranked slowly, but it started. He pulled it into the garage where the truck had been. He thought he would tinker with it for something to do. Christmas Eve meant no customers. He discovered the the block hadn't cracked, it was just the bottom hose on the radiator. "Well, shoot, I can fix this," he said to himself. So he put a new one on.

"Those tires ain't gonna get 'em through the winter either." He took the snow treads off of his wife's old Lincoln. They were like new and he wasn't going to drive the car anyway.

As he was working, he heard shots being fired. He ran outside and beside a police car an officer lay on the cold ground. Bleeding from the left shoulder, the officer moaned, "Please help me."

George helped the officer inside as he remembered the training he had received in the Army as a medic. He knew the wound needed attention. "Pressure to stop the bleeding," he thought. The uniform company had been there that morning and had left clean shop towels. He used those and duct tape to bind the wound. "Hey, they say duct tape can fix anythin'," he said, trying to make the policeman feel at ease.

"Something for pain," George thought. All he had was the pills he used for his back. "These ought to work." He put some water in a cup and gave the policeman the pills. "You hang in there, I'm going to get you an ambulance."

The phone was dead. "Maybe I can get one of your buddies on that there talk box out in your car." He went out only to find that a bullet had gone into the dashboard destroying the two way radio.

He went back in to find the policeman sitting up. "Thanks," said the officer. "You could have left me there. The guy that shot me is still in the area."

George sat down beside him, "I would never leave an injured man in the Army and I ain't gonna leave you." George pulled back the bandage to check for bleeding. "Looks worse than what it is. Bullet passed right through 'ya. Good thing it missed the important stuff though. I think with time your gonna be right as rain."

George got up and poured a cup of coffee. "How do you take it?" he asked. "None for me," said the officer. "Oh, yer gonna drink this. Best in the city. Too bad I ain't got no donuts." The officer laughed and winced at the same time.

The front door of the office flew open. In burst a young man with a gun. "Give me all your cash! Do it now!" the young man yelled. His hand was shaking and George could tell that he had never done anything like this before.

"That's the guy that shot me!" exclaimed the officer.

"Son, why are you doing this?" asked George, "You need to put the cannon away. Somebody else might get hurt."

The young man was confused. "Shut up old man, or I'll shoot you, too. Now give me the cash!"

The cop was reaching for his gun. "Put that thing away," George said to the cop, "we got one too many in here now."

He turned his attention to the young man. "Son, it's Christmas Eve. If you need money, well then, here. It ain't much but it's all I got. Now put that pee shooter away."

George pulled $150 out of his pocket and handed it to the young man, reaching for the barrel of the gun at the same time. The young man released his grip on the gun, fell to his knees and began to cry. "I'm not very good at this am I? All I wanted was to buy something for my wife and son," he went on. "I've lost my job, my rent is due, my car got repossessed last week ..."

George handed the gun to the cop. Son, we all get in a bit of squeeze now and then. The road gets hard sometimes, but we make it through the best we can."

He got the young man to his feet, and sat him down on a chair across from the cop. "Sometimes we do stupid things." George handed the young man a cup of coffee. "Bein' stupid is one of the things that makes us human. Comin' in here with a gun ain't the answer. Now sit there and get warm and we'll sort this thing out."

The young man had stopped crying. He looked over to the cop. "Sorry I shot you. It just went off. I'm sorry officer."

"Shut up and drink your coffee." the cop said.

George could hear the sounds of sirens outside. A police car and an ambulance skidded to a halt. Two cops came through the door, guns drawn. "Chuck! You ok?" one of the cops asked the wounded officer.

"Not bad for a guy who took a bullet. How did you find me?"

"GPS locator in the car. Best thing since sliced bread. Who did this?" the other cop asked as he approached the young man.

Chuck answered him, "I don't know. The guy ran off into the dark. Just dropped his gun and ran."

George and the young man both looked puzzled at each other.

"That guy work here?," the wounded cop continued. "Yep," George said, "just hired him this morning. Boy lost his job."

The paramedics came in and loaded Chuck onto the stretcher. The young man leaned over the wounded cop and whispered, "Why?"

Chuck just said, "Merry Christmas boy ... and you too, George, and thanks for everything."

"Well, looks like you got one doozy of a break there. That ought to solve some of your problems."

George went into the back room and came out with a box. He pulled out a ring box. "Here you go, something for the little woman. I don't think Martha would mind. She said it would come in handy some day."

The young man looked inside to see the biggest diamond ring he ever saw. "I can't take this," said the young man. "It means something to you."

"And now it means something to you," replied George. "I got my memories. That's all I need."

George reached into the box again. An airplane, a car and a truck appeared next. They were toys that the oil company had left for him to sell. "Here's something for that little man of yours."

The young man began to cry again as he handed back the $150 that the old man had handed him earlier.

"And what are you supposed to buy Christmas dinner with? You keep that too," George said, "Now git home to your family."

The young man turned with tears streaming down his face. "I'll be here in the morning for work, if that job offer is still good."

"Nope. I'm closed Christmas day," George said. "See ya the day after."

George turned around to find that the stranger had returned. "Where'd you come from? I thought you left?"

"I have been here. I have always been here," said the stranger. "You say you don't celebrate Christmas. Why?"

"Well, after my wife passed away, I just couldn't see what all the bother was. Puttin' up a tree and all seemed a waste of a good pine tree. Bakin' cookies like I used to with Martha just wasn't the same by myself and besides I was gettin' a little chubby."

The stranger put his hand on George's shoulder. "But you do celebrate the holiday, George.

* You gave me food and drink and warmed me when I was cold and hungry.
* The woman with child will bear a son and he will become a great doctor.
* The policeman you helped will go on to save 19 people from being killed by terrorists.
* The young man who tried to rob you will make you a rich man and not take any for himself.

"That is the spirit of the season and you keep it as good as any man."

George was taken aback by all this stranger had said. "And how do you know all this?" asked the old man.

"Trust me, George. I have the inside track on this sort of thing. And when your days are done you will be with Martha again."

The stranger moved toward the door. "If you will excuse me, George, I have to go now. I have to go home where there is a big celebration planned."

George watched as the old leather jacket and the torn pants that the stranger was wearing turned into a white robe. A golden light began to fill the room.

"You see, George ... it's My birthday. Merry Christmas."

George fell to his knees and replied, "Happy Birthday, Lord."

~ author unknown ~

Let us not forget the true meaning of Christmas, love and giving trumps all, no matter what God you believe in.

I want to thank all my readers for making this year a very fun and challenging year. We may disagree, but when it comes right down to the important issue of family, we all do what is best for our little ones.

Merry Christmas everyone!

CTV Interviews PM Harper.

I missed the interview, but you can watch it at CTV News online.

Here is the first segment, just keep watching they have the full interview.

Funny how every "average Canadian" asked a question was a lefty, except for one guy from Calgary. CTV should be embarrassed by their lack of respect for our Prime Minister. My advise to CTV, keep pushing the coalition, and asking the PM to apologize for wanting to cut off taxpayers money to political parties. Keep pretending that the Bloq is not an active participant in the coalition. This will sell real well to the lefties, who don't advertise on CTV, so your revenues will decrease. Funny how they are not allowing comments at the site!

I think I will go back to watching the CBC, at least they are honest in their Liberal bias. CTV pretends to be fair and balanced, but listen to the interview. Every question was an attack on, not just PM Harper, but every Conservative voter as well.

CTV might want to consider the fact that Quebec votes Bloq, and a majority of Canadians outside of Quebec voted for Conservatives. So, every time you dish OUR Prime Minister, you tick off the majority of Canadians. Liberal lefty lackeys just don't understand that Toronto is not the center of the universe for 95% of Canadians.

By the way CTV, how are those revenues going? Down??? No kidding! HA!

30 Second Idling Coming Soon....

To Edmonton? You heard that right, to Edmonton, thanks to our totally lefty city council.
Having said that, the current social trend of environmental bandwagon jumping approaches the nauseating and ridiculous when public officials begin to suggest that, at minus-15, you should only idle your car for 10 seconds, and that above that, 30 seconds should suffice.

This is, of course, rankly stupid to anyone who doesn't own a garage; that includes a lot of Edmontonians and disproportionately targets people by income. It's the kind of dumb idea that comes from listening to environmental zealots -- the far-extreme of the green movement, not the average person who has some concern.

In fact, the average car heater isn't going to need less than about three minutes -- and in some cases five or six minutes-- to get to a temperature that will keep windows free of frost at -20 C. And if you can't see, you can't drive.

The only conservative, Mike Nicols was dumped by the university elites in Ward 5 for ultra lefty Iveson.

I met this guy during the campaign, the only thing he had done was force ALL university students to pay for transit passes, whether they used it or not. A truly lefty dream, make everyone pay for the few. He was actually proud of making all students pay the way for only those students who use the transit. This was his crowning glory! Oh, and his wife told me that all post secondary education should be free!

Now, he's out to make a name for himself, by imposing a 30 second idle rule in Edmonton. Today, it is -25 in Edmonton, try warming up your car for just 30 seconds. Iveson appears to think that driving with only a tiny peep hole defrosted is a good thing, and let's just bundle those kids up better, who care if their little noses get frost bite, IN THE CAR!

Now the left-wing zealots at city hall -- the same happy gang that brought Edmontonians a 7% tax hike and jacked up user fees -- seem determined to bring the state into the driveways and carports of the city.

Word leaked out of silly hall that a "tough" idling bylaw is being readied by the bureaucrats. It's being urged along by rookie Coun. Don Iveson, determined to set himself up as council's Kyoto Kult high priest.

Iveson, a former student radical who appears never to have had a real job, now thinks he has the left stuff to run a billion-buck city, and impose his wonky idea of how the world works by having bylaw enforcement officers hand out fines to taxpayers who get caught warming up their vehicles.

Here is my solution.

1. All Edmonton city councilors must park their cars on the street.
2. They may NOT use extension cords to keep their blockheater's warm, this is against a city bylaw that prevents cords across sidewalks.
3. They can only warm up (idle) their cars for 30 seconds.
4. They can not drive their cars unless all windows are frost free and their license plates are clearly visible. (another city bylaw)
5. Because after 30 seconds idling, their cars will not be frost free, they must proceed to the nearest bus stop. Iveson should be in full support of this step, after all he loves the transit system.
6. If the bus does not come in 30 seconds, they must proceed to the next bus stop, and wait 30 seconds for that bus, if it does not arrive in 30 seconds, off they go to the next bus stop.
7. Once they have walked to work in -25 weather, because we all know, that no bus is ever going to arrive in 30 seconds, maybe their heads will thaw out enough to start thinking about real issues.

I suggest Edmontonian's enforce these 7 rules on all our city councilor's and let's throw some of the bureaucrat's on the list as well.

It will not take me 30 seconds idling to vote NO to Iveson next election, heck, if Mike Nicol's runs for Mayor, I would run in Ward 5 to beat these lefties. Here is a comment from way back during the election:

I agree -- Mike Nickel needs to be ineffective and negative somewhere else. Any councillor that can vote down a nine- year old's proposal for anit-idling in front of her school, and even an anti-idling educational campaign, needs to go. As well, I was amused to hear that Mr. Nickel wanted transit prices in edmonton to be on par with other larger canadian cities. Too bad Edmonton transit does not offer the same accessability that Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto do. So, we should not be paying the same prices unless we are receiving the same service.

Posted by: Mark | September 29, 2007 08:29 AM

The fix was in, and it was mainly university lefties that voted for Iveson, the same lefties who got another greenie, the NDP MP here in Edmonton elected, Duncan. Where is she lately, in hiding after wholeheartedly supporting the coalition?

Time to take back South Edmonton from the university weenies, who are only in this area for 4 years, then leave to do their damage elsewhere, while we are stuck with the likes of Duncan and Iveson.

30 second idling, an econuts dream. Let them protest today, in -25 weather, then I might start listening, but they must go first and lead the way!

Friday Funnies: You Guessed It Christmas!

Looking for that perfect mate at Christmas?

A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Instructions: " You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six
floors and the value of the products increase as you go up.
You may choose any item from a particular floor,OR you may choose to go up
to the next floor, BUT you cannot go back down except to exit the building!"

So, a woman goes to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

She is intrigued, but continues : the sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.' The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims,'I can hardly stand it!' Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street. The first floor has wives that love sex. The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.
The rest of the world cannot understand how after bitter election campaigns, American politicians can return to reality. For Instance Sarah Palin has invited to her great state of Alaska the men who defeated her, Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

She has provided a moose-hunting trip for their enjoyment and has hired two other prominent men to assist them. Dick Cheney will instruct them in safe gun handling and Ted Kennedy will drive them back to their cabins in the evening.

What a gal, that Sarah is such a sport and thinks of everything.
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.
Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.
Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.
We should've known…...
ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
This one was so funny I had to include it as my animal funny!

Ladies, you are never too old to believe in Santa!!

Okay, I know you guys are going to whine, so, how about Mrs. Claus?

Now, for the Santa game. I clearly do not make a good thief, because Santa kept on knocking me out. I never made it to round two.

Grand Theft Grotto! See if you can beat my 880 score (HA!).

I Stayed Quiet.

PM Harper did more to bring Quebec into the Canadian fold than any other PM in recent history, and how did the Quebec voters reward the Conservatives? They voted for the Bloq.

Now, they try to tell us that a vote for the Bloq is not necessarily a vote for separation, but I'm not buying it, not one little bit. Look at Duceppe's recent activities, colluding with the NDP and Liberals to gain control of Parliament. When PM Harper calls them on it, he's the bad guy for even mentioning separatists. Garbage!

Quebec has used up all it's goodwill with this Albertan. When the Conservative government gave Quebec billions to fix the "fiscal imbalance", I stayed quiet. When Charest, turned around and used that money to give Quebecers a big tax break, I stayed quiet. When ALL parties in Parliament supported the "this House recognizes that Québécois form a nation within a united Canada" motion, I stayed quiet. When the Bloq constantly called for Alberta oilsands to be shutdown, I stayed quiet.

I stayed quiet believing that Quebec was worth the effort. I stayed quiet believing that Quebec would take the hand that PM Harper was extending from the rest of Canada and that they would grasp it, in unity with us. Instead, we got the one finger salute.

I will not stay quiet again. Enough, is finally enough, no more pandering to Quebec, it's time for Quebec to join Canada. No more special status, you are one province in the rest of Canada.

That's why I think PM Harper's latest move to increase seats in Ontario, BC and Alberta is a fair move, it is democratic, and best of all, by adding 21 seats in Ontario, 7 in BC and 5 in Alberta it adjusts for population representation. How will 33 extra seats impact Quebec, given that the Conservatives only need 12 more seats for a majority? Here is their response:

The Bloc, on the other hand, is steadfast in its opposition to granting Ontario more seats -- unless Quebec also benefits. “We were opposed to the original bill because it diluted the political weight of Quebec. Once it’s been recognized that the Québécois nation exists, you have to ensure that it can be heard by federal institutions,” the party’s House leader, Pierre Paquette, told La Presse. This, even though Quebec has just seven seats where the population is more than 110,000, compared to 67 in Ontario.

Dilute away PM Harper, maybe when Quebec realizes that they are not the only kid on the bloq, they will take that hand that has been extended by Canadians.

The Opening Of Pandora's Box Has Occurred!

Lots of experts and reporters, are saying the coalition is dead, and that Canadians can relax and go back to the business of ignoring politics. But, the stink lingers on in the minds of voters, and it's not going to go away anytime soon. I expect it to rear it's head again next election, not just with political parties and ads, but in the minds of Canadians, we almost lost our most precious right, the right to vote and for that vote to be heard.

The MSM is working hard to make it seem like it was all PM Harper's fault, but that's not how voters are going to remember it. I remember being shocked with the naked power grab the three parties tried to impose on Canadians because it was "constitutional". I remember thinking that they can not do this, to me, they can not erase my vote, so it became personal.

That was the big miscalculation of the coalition, funny, for once they went with facts, and were shocked that Canadians reacted emotionally, when usually they are the ones that use emotion to make their points. It backfired, badly.

The opening of Pandora's Box has occurred. Every voter going into the polling station from now on, will ask themselves, "will my vote count, or will a coalition government wipe it out"? It was bad enough when people were voting only on party lines, but now they will be voting for or against a possible coalition government.

This issue is far from dead, it lives and breathes as a whole new idea that Canadians must consider from now on. It will be sitting in Parliament during question period. It will be sitting on opposition members shoulders, egging them on. It will spark arguments in committees that the opposition already rule. It will continue to smell bad to Canadian voters no matter how hard the MSM tries to cover it with a rosy gloss.

What amazes me, is that the opposition in a minority government, already holds the balance of power. They can bring any minority government down, at any time. They can vote any bill they don't like down, they can introduce their own bills and get them passed, like they did with their Kyoto bill. They already have the power to band together, at any time they want. Plus, they have the advantage in the Senate. They have the aces in their hands and they think they are twos. There was NO politically sound reason for these parties to band together, except for power, to get they hands on the till of Canada, and drive it into the ground, planting only bad seeds that never germinate, or if they do, they are a hideous, misshapen representation of democracy.

So why the need for a coalition? Why were they in such a hurry, after only 6 sitting days of Parliament to bring the Conservative government down by forming this coalition? Do they hate PM Harper so much that they risked this coalition with separatists?

I think the answer is yes, but it's not just PM Harper they can't stand, it's reform MP's that especially send them into spasms of indignation. They could see their parties reduced influence and that power had to be grabbed back quickly. Dion had nothing to lose, he was already a goner, but if he could have pulled this off, what a glorious rise out of the dung heap, into the PM's seat that would have been! ALL LIBERALS supported this move, with visions of sugar plum jobs dancing in their heads. New leader Iggy has not yet given up on Dion's vision of power, he has NOT ruled out a coalition in the future. The coalition is still stinking up the joint!

Let's be clear, the Liberals, NDP, and Bloq banded together to try and take power. Pandora's Box has been opened. Never again will Canadians think that their vote counts, as they intended. The coalition threat has been released, and will be used again. It is inevitable.

Canadian voters now understand that their vote is truly precious, and must not be taken lightly, because it can be misconstrued by political parties into something they didn't mean.

Pandora's Box, once opened, can not ever be shut again.

Bob And Doug, Twelve Days Of Christmas!

I was too busy today for much more than a quick post. To get you in the Canadian Christmas spirit, here's Bob and Doug singing "The Twelve Days of Christmas".

Even my 15 year old has noticed that Christmas is becoming too commercialized. Let's keep Merry Christmas and ditch Happy Holidays!

As A Conservative, I Support PM Harper!

The little wiggly worms are on the march. Read comments at CTV, and the Globe and Mail, and you see the wiggly worms in every thread.

Stephen Harper has to go. I would vote for the Conservatives if they got rid of Stephen Harper. Stephen Harper is the problem....BLAH, BLAH.
makinaw dandy
It is time to get rid of Steven Harper once and for all!

Harper supporters, give your heads a shake.

Harper is wrong for Canada, and needs to go.

So obviously "Joe" isn't a Harper supporter but he feels free to tell us Harper supporters what to do, this after the Liberals crowned Iggy without a vote??

I have not heard even one Conservative say anything against PM Harper, and seeing as I'm in Conservative country, I talk to lots of Conservatives, lefties might even say we are infested with Conservatives here in Alberta. It's only going to get more infested now that the Alberta Liberals elected an eco-nut as their new leader, kind of Dion exdux! HA!

So, if Conservatives aren't behind the "get rid of PM Harper" scheme, who is? Might it be our coalition members? Are the lefty socialists so scared of PM Harper that they want him gone? Can't be those tolerant progressives, who love everyone and just want a piece of this earth. Not those lefties who, by forming a coalition, have created huge rifts between east and west, Quebec and the ROC. Not Scott Brison who wants "honesty" from the Conservatives, while he is a member of the corrupt Adscam party? I ask you why do the lefties want PM Harper gone? Supposedly no-one likes him, even though he has the highest ratings amongst all leaders of all parties. I get it now, PM Harper has erased two Liberal leaders, Martin and Dion, and Iggy is not going to do much better.

I want it known that I support PM Harper as leader of the Conservative party! He has taken us out of the wilderness by joining two parties into one, winning two elections and managing the longest running minority government in Canadian history. He deserves our support.

Watch his interview, without re-dos on CTV.

This is our Prime Minister, and I support him.

Global Warming, Or Not!

Way back in the day, acid rain was eating up the ozone layer at astonishing rates. The people were panicked, and the sun was about to fry us.


By Amy Silverman
Published on May 04, 1995
Scott Bundgaard used to believe that chlorofluorocarbons--most commonly known by the trade name Freon--were depleting the Earth's ozone layer and increasing dangerous ultraviolet radiation. He'd nag his sister for using aerosol hair spray.

Then he was elected to the legislature, where he and his colleagues on the House Environment Committee considered a measure that called for Arizona to ignore federal law and an international treaty and allow the manufacture of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) after January 1, 1996, when an international ban goes into effect.

Freon advocates offered both pragmatic and ideological justifications for the law. The ban would force Arizonans to pay for new air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, or swelter without it, they claimed. And, perhaps more important, the legislation offered yet another great way for Arizona to tell the feds--and, for that matter, the world--to buzz off.

Then, there was the small matter of science.
The House Environment Committee was told that the scientific theory behind the hole in the ozone is a hoax, manufactured by NASA scientists who want money to conduct research. The ozone crisis was also being advanced by big companies that stand to make billions by selling replacements for the banned CFCs, the committee was told.

In a story he wrote for the Washington Post in 1993, veteran science writer Boyce Rensberger observed that while ozone depletion from CFCs is real, the final link has yet to be demonstrated. Ozone-hole theorists criticized the piece, which perturbed Rensberger. "My story said that the threat of ozone depletion has been exaggerated, not that it wasn't happening," he says. "That the health hazards and the environmental hazards have increased ultraviolet radiation have not been demonstrated yet--that remains true."

Not that there haven't been attempts to codify the link.
In his 1992 book, Earth in the Balance, now-Vice President Al Gore says higher UV-B radiation resulting from ozone depletion has blinded rabbits, salmon and sheep. This was never proved scientifically.

Funny way back in 1995, Al Gore was spouting nonsense, he still thinks DDT is dangerous because some idiot wrote a book about birds eggs softening, and this one book led to the death of millions of people to malaria. This says it all about the environmental movement:

And last year, there was debate over a decline in the world's frog population, possibly because of ozone depletion. It was later revealed the scientist conducting the study knew nothing about the ozone layer, but leapt to conclusions in trying to link ozone levels, radiation and bad frog eggs. The frogs suffered from a fungus, which was at least partially responsible for the high death rate.

It's a long article, going back in time, but read it, the eco-nuts are using the exact same arguments now, as they did 13 years ago.

So, how is the ozone hole doing?

US government scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) say this year's ozone hole reached its maximum level on September 12, extending to 10.5m sq miles and four miles deep. That is bigger than 2007 but smaller than 2006, when the hole covered over 11.4m sq miles.

Scientists blamed colder-than-average temperatures in the stratosphere for the ozone hole's unusually large size this year. "Weather is the most important factor in the fluctuation of the size of the ozone hole from year to year," said Bryan Johnson, a scientist at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, which monitors ozone, ozone-depleting chemicals, and greenhouse gases around the globe. "How cold the stratosphere is and what the winds do determine how powerfully the chemicals can perform their dirty work."

Yikes they blamed COLDER than average temperatures....hold it, what happened to global warming???

Just watched Hannity on Fox, and he interviewed the producers of a new film called "Not Evil, Just Wrong", here is a promo of the film:

Bet it doesn't get the same attention that Outrageous Lies...oops, Inconvenient Truth got by the media.

Global warming, send it to Edmonton, we would love to warm up 2 degrees to -30! Lizzie May, I am ashamed that you think you are a Canadian, go back to the US, better yet, try going to Siberia and explaining global warming to them! You are giving real females a bad name!

The Bloom Is Off The Boom!

I don't like any bailout, not even one little bit. It goes against every Conservative principal in my body. It goes against every good economic principal you will find in any economics textbook. So far we have been focusing on an auto bailout, but what happens if the oil sands needs help?

Manufacturing in Ontario is not just about the auto industry. Think "dirty" oil. That's right the oil sands are a major source of manufacturing in Ontario, and right now the bloom is off the boom.

Some oilsands math
Gary Lamphier, The Edmonton Journal
Published: Thursday, November 13

One day, it would be nice if the oilsands bashing lobby deigned to explain a few things to the rest of us.

Such as. If the oilsands are shut down -- as the good folks at Greenpeace would very much like -- or even significantly scaled back, where will the billions of dollars in federal equalization money that Alberta's (oilsands-dependent) taxpayers ship to Ottawa each year, come from in future?

Just wondering. It's a small-minded little nitpick, I realize. With Ontario now a "have-not" province, and the country's manufacturing sector flat on its back, you'd think Quebecers, among others, might like to know. Especially in the middle of a provincial election campaign.

Ontario's Biggest-Ever Trade Mission Seeks Oilsands Contracts

Economic development ministers rarely work the floor at a trade show but that's what Ontario's Sandra Pupatello did last week in Edmonton at the National Oilsands Buyer/Seller Forum. "We've brought 208 people here representing 134 companies," says Pupatello (shown at left). "This is the largest trade delegation ever assembled by Ontario, even bigger than our trade mission to China [in 2005]."

Clearly, Ontario industry is hungry for bitumen-fueled business. Central Canadian metal-working companies and other suppliers, suffering from slowdowns in auto manufacturing and forestry, see the oilsands as their most promising opportunity for growth. Government preparations for this forum included a 282 page directory of potential oilsands suppliers in the province, available in printed and digital versions. Trade officials even produced a lapel pin combining the Alberta and Ontario flags.

The economic crisis and collapse in oil prices have pushed the sector to the brink, resulting in the delay of some $40-billion in new projects, taking 800,000 barrels a day of expected production growth -- about half of what had been expected -- off the table, according to CIBC World Markets.

Meanwhile, existing projects are close to losing money at today's oil prices. According to a recent Merrill Lynch report, many oil sands projects need US$38 a barrel oil to break even. Oil prices settled at US$46.28 a barrel on Friday, keeping projects in the black for now, but curtailing developers' ability to fund expansion.

Industry watchers say companies that scaled back won't be rushing to jump back in, even if oil prices recover above US$90, the level many say is required to build new projects.

Other problems would have to be resolved: mounting costs, tight financing and, of course, environmental challenges. The oil sands' poor image could lead to even tougher environmental legislation.

The implications of a no-growth period for the oil sands are grim, not just for Alberta, but the entire country. The oil sands boom has been Canada's economic engine over the past decade. The country's rise as a major global oil producer would stall and the United States would see its energy security options reduced.

For the last decade the oil sands have been driving the economy, now we have Saskatchewan and Newfoundland entering the have provinces because of oil, but for how long? Meanwhile Toronto Liberals, Quebec separatists and the NDP think the gravy train is never ending. They are busy plotting the downfall of our elected government so they can throw money at the unions. Those same unions that will not compromise, those unions that except the taxpayers to bail them out so they can continue to live in lala land on the taxpayers dime.

Quebec is so union heavy that they are like the mafia, that's why Quebec continues to suck 8 BILLION more out of Canada than they put in. I am sick of it, and so are the intelligent Quebecers. What does Quebec think will happen if the oil sands slow down? It really ticks me off when they spout off about their $7 a day, daycare that the rest of Canada is paying for. They are too ignorant to be embarrassed about freeloading on the rest of Canada. They think it is their right because they are special/different/unique. Well the fuse is getting shorter out here, and Iggy is not going to sell any better in the west than Dion did, so the divide will continue.

The bloom is off the boom out here in hicks ville Alberta, and the east better get prepared for the consequences, it's not going to be pretty. Alberta is debt free, and has some reserves for a rainy day, so we will be okay, can Quebec say the same thing?

The Friday Funnies: Some Christmas Stuff!


Who's jolly and cute,

Wearing a beard and a red flannel suit,

And if he is chuckling and laughing away,

While flying around in a miniature sleigh,

With eight tiny reindeer to pull him along,

Then let's face it...

Your eggnog's too strong!
A Professor was giving a lecture on "Involuntary Muscular Contractions"
to his first year medical students. Realizing that this was not the most
riveting subject, the Professor decided to lighten the mood slightly.

He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said, "Do you know what your a$$ hole is doing while you're having an orgasm???"

She replied, "Probably deer hunting with his buddies."

The Professor laughed so hard he could not continue with the class.
Two alligators were relaxing in the swamp talking.
The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said,

"I can't understand how you kin be so much bigger 'n me.
We're the same age, and we was the same size as kids.
I just don't get it."

"Well," said the big 'gator, "What you been eatin', boy?"

"Politicians, same as you," replied the small 'gator.

"Hmm. Well, where do y'all catch 'em?"

"Down 'tother side of the swamp near the parkin' lot by the capitol."

"Same here. Hmm. How do you catch 'em?"

"Well, I crawls up into one of them Lexus

and wait fer one to open the car door.

Then I jump out, grab 'em on the leg, shake the shit out of 'em, and eat 'em!"

"Ah!" says the big alligator,
"I think I see your problem. You ain't gettin' any real nourishment."

"See, by the time you get done shakin'

the shit out of a Politician,

there ain't nothin' left but

an a$$hole and a briefcase!"

And for those with too much time on their hands, we have a skeet shooting game. My son watched me try to play it, and took over after I hit no skeet's. He advanced rapidly, so I kicked him off my computer.

You try it, it's not as easy as it looks, unless you are a 13 year old sharp shooter!
No baby animals this week, but I did find a Baby Queen for your listening pleasure:

It's a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, "Hey, mamacita, let's do Weeweechu."

Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon!" said Rosita.

Oh, c'mon baby, let's you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it's the perfect time," Pedro begged.

"But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon." replied Rosita.

Please, corazoncito, just once, do Weeweechu with me."

Rosita looked at Pedro and said, "OK, one time, we'll do Weeweechu."

Pedro grabbed his guitar and they both sang.....

"Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year."

Get out there tomorrow and shop like crazy, we can stop the coming recession if we buy stuff. Simple demand and supply. Just don't buy on credit. I'm getting into the Christmas mood now that we finally have some snow. The minus 30 tomorrow doesn't inspire me to do anything but stay in my flannel pj's and read a good book, like Atlas Shrugged, for the 8th time! What a great gift idea, Atlas Shrugged for everyone, or The Fountainhead or We The Living.

A Star Is Born!

This is the time of year that all parents see their little ones become stars in the Christmas concerts. From little Johnny wearing a towel on his head playing his role as Joesph, to little Sara who gets to dress up as an angel, each one is a star in their parents eyes.

As my boys move through the grades at school, they have gone from sweetly singing Christmas songs to being in the band (both played the trombone this year). Each year we think we are going to sneak out after they are done, and each year we stay to the end because of the heartwarming pleasure of being together with other proud parents enjoying this special time of year, enjoying our children shining bright.

Enjoy your child's Christmas concert, sit back and feel the emotions, let the singing of your favorite Christmas carols feed your soul. This is the time of year when your children shine and you reconnect with the true meaning of Christmas, that deep in your soul belief in the goodness of mankind.

So, buy those Santa gifts, bake those Christmas treats, surround yourself with family and friends to celebrate the birth of Jesus. I know that's not politically correct anymore, but when you see your little ones, up on stage singing with all their hearts about Christmas, it makes you realize that life is not about being politically correct, it's about being morally right. Most important, life is about being as good a parent to your children as you can be, mostly by just being there for their most important moments, when their star shines brightly.

Trudeau, Dead And Gone, But....

His senators live on, and on, and on. One guy has been there for 31 YEARS!

If anyone doubts the uselessness of the Senate, just look at the present lineup of appointments:

Senators by Province:

Yikes, Tommy Banks still has 3 years to go here in Alberta! Does anyone even know who he is anymore?

Take a look at your Senators, how many do you know anything about, how often have you emailed them or even met them? Do they come out to rallies, or protests? Was Grant Mitchell at the Legislature in support of Albertans who do not want a coalition government?

This is a gravy train, no public appearances, no public accountability, no having to justify why you should remain in your position, nothing. This is not a chamber of sober second thought, this is a golden appointment into the do nothing world of politics. This is where all the appointed Lords and Ladies congregate to plot against the current government. These are the true bottom suckers that every fisherman throws back because they serve no purpose. These are the leeches, stuck onto the taxpayers teat, that refuse to let go because they need us to survive.

So, if PM Harper can't get provinces to elect these suckers, then he should appoint 18 good and true Conservatives, then if the lefties howl, he can make them understand that this is democracy. Isn't that what they are claiming, that they have the democratic RIGHT to take over the government?

So PM Harper has the democratic right to appoint 18 Senators, let the whining begin.

Trudeau, not quite dead enough.

Craig Oliver, Come On Down.....

Or Not! PM Harper to fill 18 senate seats by Christmas.

PM filling 18 senate seats by Christmas

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper will fill up to 18 vacant seats in the Senate before Christmas, Sun Media has learned.

A senior Conservative official said the government remains committed to advancing the cause of Senate reform, but said it has made little progress since the Tories took power in 2006. With the threat of a Liberal-NDP coalition supported by the Bloc Quebecois toppling the government early in the new year, Harper will appoint a slate of Senators who must promise to step down if and when Canada moves to an elected selection process.

So, I guess Lizzy May will have to go back to the drawing board.

The senior Conservative said while Harper has signalled his intention to fill the Senate seats if legislation was stalled or blocked, recent speculation about putting appointees like Green Party Leader Elizabeth May or separatist selections from Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe into the red chamber have triggered the urgency.

“It would be even more undemocratic to have an unelected coalition government fill Senate vacancies so we will proceed prior to Christmas,” the official said.

Good move by the PM, appoint those senators only until an elected senator takes their place. What can the opposition say now? Watch them whine!

Sorry Liberals, We Already Have THE Leader!

I must admit that Iggy was the only choice left to the Liberals, because they want a guy just like PM Harper! Unfortunately for them, we already have THE leader Canada needs and a fake imitation just won't cut it.

Now, if Iggy can hide his ego with the Puffins for awhile, and get down to rebuilding the Liberal party, he might have a chance in 5 or 6 years. I suspect he will not wait that long for power, so what is the quick, cheap route to power? You guessed it, coalition! Now that the monster has been let out of it's cage, there will be no going back.

Sure, we might fend it off during the next few elections, but it will keep rearing it's ugly head until the lefties win a minority again. Then they will form a coalition without having to join forces in an election. It's now a waiting game.

Think about what happened in Edmonton, during the election. I heard rumours that the Liberals and NDP had formed an "agreement" that Linda Duncan could win and that Liberals should vote for her, it worked, she got elected. This is how it can happen in other ridings. Run two candidates, but only vote for one. I suspect that if the voters in Edmonton had been told what was happening in that riding, the results would have been different.

Make no mistake the Liberals and NDP have realized the advantage of teaming up without appearing to have done so. They are busy right now thinking about how to make this work across the country.

I have no problem with a coalition as long as they, up front, tell voters what is going on. So, next election, they should only run Linda Duncan, Coalition candidate in that riding, and every other riding in Canada, including Quebec. No more of this sneaky behind the scenes scheming.

Will Iggy go for this type of scheming, you bet, he's a Liberal after all.

How do you think they are going to fill their empty coffers? Lefties will fight hard to stop PM Harper and the Conservatives, because they know that with a majority, the purse strings slam shut and they will have to stand on their own for all to see.

The MSM spin is that PM Harper caused this crisis. NO, the opposition did, and they are smelling a way to win without honestly going to the people. Too bad they woke up the silent majority. Too bad the people now understand the damage that the left wants to do to our country.

Understand that cheap imitations are just that, cheap imitations. The only ones being fooled are the fools themselves. Canadians are on to the whole scheme now, and will not allow our country to suffer these fools next election.

Blame PM Harper!

This is the new Liberal/lefty tactic, it's never their fault, it's PM Harper's fault. These lefties wanted Dion as PM last week, this week they have booted them to the curb, BUT, it's all PM Harper's fault. Their support is dropping faster than a stone in the river, but it's all Harper's fault. They want to hold a coronation for Iggy, and it's all PM Harper's fault that they have to do it. These bozo's think adscam was Harper's fault.

Do they really think that average Canadians watching their BS believe them? Are they so delusional that they really believe what they are spouting, or is it some sort of Harper derangement syndrome?

The Liberal party of Canada is a shadow of what they used to be, and they think it's all PM Harper's fault. Maybe they should look in a mirror and seriously ask themselves, what they believe in.

They are in crisis but they refuse to acknowledge the fact. You see, Liberals are all about fancy words that mean nothing and action is a dirty word to these guys. Blame Harper they yell, that will cure all our troubles. Elect the new Liberal leader by a vote of 77 MP's, that is democracy to Liberals. It stinks, and voters understand that stench, it smells of rot and corruption.

Hedy and Holland seriously think the coalition is still a good idea, even as their poll numbers plummet, but Iggy will save them. HA! A new saviour is born, just before Christmas, and if it doesn't work out, well....

Blame Harper!!

Liberals, Out Of Touch With Their Own Voters!

So, the Liberals are about to crown Iggy as their new leader? Nice. They were willing to crown Dion PM, just last week, now it's going to be the Liberal caucus that crowns their new leader?

Is it only me thinking this is dishonest, or are these guys making up their own rules to suit themselves, without consulting their own grassroots voters.

Liberals should relax, take a breath and understand that they need to rebuild from the ground up, not from the top down. If I was a Liberal supporter (snort), I would be seriously ticked off with them right now.

LeBlanc to drop out of race, support Ignatieff

Liberal Leader Stephane Dion is expected to resign this week and Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc has dropped out of the leadership race and will support rival Michael Ignatieff, CTV News has learned.

"Michael Ignatieff pretty much has this leadership race wrapped up," CTV's Chief Political Correspondent Craig Oliver told CTV Newsnet Sunday evening.

The Liberals are about to re-write their own constitution, all the while yelling about how a coalition is constitutional? Too funny.

I've got the beer and popcorn ready, this should to better than Bruce Willis in "Die Hard".

To all those Liberal supporters wanting to see PM Harper replaced because you have no leader, no hope, and no morals, and think Conservatives should be just as unhappy, forget it. Harper is the Man!

One Or One Hundred, Each One Matters!

As I was making perogies today for Christmas, I was thinking about the political storm that hit last week, and I felt shame. How do we expect the people of Afghanistan to respect democracy, when our own politicians play silly power games. How can we expect our troops fighting for Afghanistan's freedom to sit silent and not comment.

We were so busy fighting amongst ourselves, that we forgot about those who are fighting for us in other countries. Many will be far away from their families for Christmas, and three brave souls are returning to us tomorrow. May the Canadians lining the Highway of Heroes give some comfort to the families and friends of these 3 fallen soldiers.

In this busy time, just before Christmas, let us remember all our troops, and what they fight for, our freedom. A Different Christmas Poem:

Our troops are not political pawns, they are sons and daughters, Mom's and Dad's, they are Canadians doing what our government has asked them to do, let them do it, with our support and blessings.

CTV Biased Much?

It appears that CTV thinks Dion spoke at the anti-coalition rally in Ottawa. Stupidity or bias? I tried to upload the video to Youtube over 6 times, it wasn't accepted, so I am trying Google video for the first time. Not sure if it will work, but I will keep on trying to get the message out. CTV mislead people into thinking that Dion was speaking at the Rally for Canada rally, not the Toronto pro-coalition rally organized by the unions.

Here is a real live video at a rally, something we did not see by the MSM.

Look at the online news, nothing about the Ottawa rally, nothing about the HUGE numbers of people who came out FOR Canada, and against the coalition. All I saw was Dion/Layton spouting off to about 200 union supporters in Toronto, nothing on the Ottawa rally of over 5000 people, nothing reported from Calgary, over 2500, silence.

The media is not reporting the whole truth, they are trying to distort the truth. They are clearly trying to distort and bias our opinions. Did they not have cameras at the Parliament rally?

This was such a disgusting distortion of the truth by the media that we need to rise up, on blogs and show the people the truth, that the MSM has tried to hid.

If the goggle blogger video doesn't show up, watch a short version here:

You get the point right? CTV did not cover the Ottawa rally, all they showed was the Dion/Layton rally to shove unions down our throats, to shove a coalition down our throats, and to pretend that this is what we want.

Well, it's time to fight back, with the most potent weapon known to businesses, our pocket books. If the unions think that they should get money for life without compromise, don't buy their cars. If public workers want to strike, let them, they get way less when they strike than when they work. Saves us money!

Email advertisers telling them why you will not buy anything from them until they stop advertising on biased news channels....oops that doesn't leave them many options.

If a store won't say "Merry Christmas", they are not getting my "Christmas" money. It's simple, and it's effective. Unions want power over us with a coalition government, let's show them the money.....disappearing. Until the everyday union members smarten up and realize that their union masters are milking them dry, and causing hard feelings amongst Canadians the NDP will have more power than they should.

When average Canadians speak out loud and clear, but the MSM refuses to cover it, when they only cover it from a biased angle, we are no better than Indonesia, or Venezuela. That is the issue with a coalition government, we the people understand the slippery slope, and we are pulling hard to rescue our country from the quicksand.

With Christmas rapidly approaching, this is a warning for you guys out there:

A man is at the dentist's office for a routine appointment
when the dentist notices that the patient's plate is severely
corroded, but can't figure out why.

The dentist says to the patient, "I've noticed that your
plate is severely corroded. Have you had a change in your
diet recently?"

To which the patient replies, "Why yes sir. Six months ago
my wife introduced me to eggs benedict. I fell in love with
the hollandaise sauce and now I put it on eveything."

"That's it! The hollandaise sauce contains lemon juice which
is very acidic. That explains the corrosion of your plate.
I can replace your plate, but I have to make it out of chrome."

"Why chrome?", asks the patient.

"Why don't you know? There's no plate like chrome for
the hollandaise."
If only humans could adapt like animals. Two white tigers find a new Mom!

Finally, for you guys out there who like the Playboy Bunnies Calendar, here is a sneak peak of the 2009 edition:

Careful, make sure your wife isn't looking.....

HA! What did you expect? This is a family watched blog. Okay, get a good nights sleep, because tomorrow is RALLY time! Get those Canadian flags out and show your support for freedom in Canada!

Let's Rock The Nation!

No victory is in sight yet, we have only won a short reprieve. Do not underestimate your foe. They are blinded by hatred and have only one goal in mind, get rid of the Conservative government, no matter who leads it.

Stephen Harper is the biggest threat because he can not be bought, businesses have no hold over him. This has caused them so much frustration that they jumped the gun, thinking all good Liberals would support a coalition to get back into power. This gambit has failed. They have already started the new one...we would support the Conservatives ....if they had a new leader. The only ones wanting a new Conservative leader are the members in opposition. I support Stephen Harper 100%. They want to weaken the Conservatives by pretending that everything will be okay if we get a new leader. BS!!!

Their wallets are empty, they are desperate to fill them, in the only way they know how, gain power, at all cost. Forget about Canada, it does not matter to those who thirst for power, we voters are mere pawns to the power brokers.

Do not make the mistake that we have won anything. Do not make the mistake in thinking that the coalition is dead. Do not think that new polls make everything bright.

We had the snake by the tail, we just forgot that it is the head that bites! This is not over, they have declared war on Conservatives. They might back down to save their own butts, but only temporarily, the fire is ready to be stoked again, and we must be ready.

EDMONTON - About 200 people carrying signs inscribed with slogans such as "Stop the Separatists" and "I Didn't Vote for This" rallied in front of Edmonton-Strathcona MP Linda Duncan's new office Thursday afternoon.

The crowd was protesting an opposition coalition that is pitching to take the reins from the Conservative minority government in Ottawa.

What a great start, on the coldest day we have had so far! A poster on my blog was there:

I was pleased to attend the rally in front of Linda Duncan's NDP office. CBC was there in full force but I have not seen anything on TV about it yet.

Duncan, of course, refused to take any phone calls from her constituents.

She is toast now.

Toast, the fake coalition is toast. CBC was there, but didn't report it, why am I not shocked? It sounds like the counter protest FOR the coalition had the same numbers:

EDMONTON - A rousing shout of “Down with the dictator” got a pro-coalition rally started in downtown Edmonton Thursday evening.

An estimated 300 people braved the snow to gather at the steps of City Hall. Many of those assembled, including Zoe Todd, 25, were there to prove to the rest of the country that Alberta is not politically one-dimensional.

Down with the dictator? God help us, these people are just plain stupid! At the NO coalition rally, they sang "Oh Canada", funny how the MSM doesn't report that.

Armed stormtroopers? Gee I thought I left my rocket launcher at home. There were probably more woman than men there, after all it was during working hours.

Perhaps it was the rabble rousing songs like "Oh Canada" that struck fear into the hearts of her (Duncan NDP MP) supporters and made them stay away.

If you are as disgusted with this whole situation as I am, get off your butts and go out to the Rally for Canada on Saturday. The new location is the Alberta Legislature at noon, and I expect to see Stelmach and all Conservative MLA's out there supporting PM Harper and the Conservative government!

The war has just begun, but they discounted the silent majority. We will not be silent anymore! Rise up! Do what lefties do best, protest. Not by calling anyone a dictator, like the lefties, but by singing "Oh Canada" like we did when the Oilers were in the playoffs. We rocked the house then, we can rock the nation as well!

The 50 Percent Rule!

The opposition is talking about the fact that PM Harper didn't get 50% of Canadians vote, therefore they deserve to rule.

Let's take this from the macro party level to the individual micro level. What MP got 50% or more of the vote in his or her riding?

Let's see, PM Harper first:

Wow! 72.9 percent of the vote goes to PM Harper.

How about Dion, remember to deduct at least 9% because he had no Green candidate running against him:

Yikes, he barely makes it over 50% in a very Liberal riding. Next up Duceppe, the darling of the separatists:

Yikes, another squeaker, by .3%, what a strong leader! HA! Let's not forget Layton, bet he wiped the floor with all the leaders....

Well, well, well, only 45% Jack? Does this mean you should not remain leader of the NDP, after all, you didn't get 50% support from your own riding let alone the country!

Check out Elections Canada to see if your MP would make the 50% rule being applied to the Conservative party. Let's get rid of all MP's who did not get 50% of the vote in their riding. If you can not win 50% in your own home town, how can you be expected to represent all voters in your area.

Thanks to this poster on CTV for making me think about the micro view:

Ian in Sask
Mr. Layton is telling all of Canada that Mr. Harper should not be Prime Minister because he did not receive over 50% of the popular vote. Using that logic why is he representing his riding when he, himself did not receive over 50% of the popular vote. I guess the candidates he ran against should form a coalition and represent that riding.

I knew micro economics would come in handy someday!
