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?
