Ruby, Ruby, Ruby....

How about we just let anyone who comes to Canada automatically get welfare, daycare, EI, OAS and CPP? Did I miss any benefit that Liberals think they are entitled to? Seriously how vote hungry do you have to be to propose this piece of legislation:

OTTAWA - The minority Conservative government is in full opposition mode over a Liberal MP's private member's bill that would allow immigrant seniors to qualify for Old Age Security after spending only three years in the country.


The minority Conservative government is in full opposition? Really? I wonder why? Okay, okay, I know full well why, but I bet most lefties don't understand why, they tend to be dense in the taxpayers money category.

So, let me see, I work from age 16 to whenever I retire and every pay cheque gets all those tax deductions like CPP, and when I retire, I might get told that all that money in CPP, is gone because people who have paid nothing into the pot, have been taking it out faster than I can put it in. Is that about right?

Kind of like the Liberals taking 40 BILLION out of EI to balance their budgets? Okay, I've got it now, pay my taxes and shut up. By the way people who have contributed nothing to Canada should get money from all these socialist funds too, and we should like it. Great idea Ruby!

Under her proposal, Ms. Dhalla said, immigrant seniors who have lived in the country for three years would qualify only for partial OAS benefits of $38.77 a month -- nowhere near the maximum payment of $516.96 a month collected by native or foreign-born residents who have lived here for 40 years.


Drawing on research conducted by the Library of Parliament, Ms. Dhalla estimates 32,000 immigrant seniors would benefit if her proposal was implemented, for a total cost of $300-million a year (BUT COULD NOT SAY HOW SHE REACHED THE NUMBER?? Nope they only say that about Ms. Finley).

Ms. Finley put the cost at $700 million, but could not say how she reached the number.


A comment at NP made me think about what Ruby was saying:

StewK, Wednesday, Sep 30, 2009

The math in this article is odd. Ms. Dhalla says that the cash outlay is about 38$/month, yet she also says that the cost for 32,000 people is 300Million$. The latter comes out to about 10,000$ per year by her next estimate (a long way from 38$/month). The conservatives have come up with double the liberal estimate. As a senior tax payer, I'm fed up with all these politicians who cannot do basic math.


So let's see, 38.77 a month times 32,000 immigrants = 1,240,640 a month and therefore 14,887,680 a year. So where does the 300 million a year come from Ruby? More gun registry math? 2 million = 2 billion? 14 million = 300 million and the program hasn't even been implemented. Hang on to your wallets folks if this one goes through!

Maybe Ruby should stick to protecting kids. The link leads you to a report from her trip to India, where young kids were beaten for stealing an assistants purse. Watch it to get the full flavour of Ruby.

Next up, have people forgotten about those nannies?



At least the government came up with an explanation of their numbers. How about I Ruby? Crickets.

Ms. Finley's department said later in a statement the $700-million is based on a 2008 estimate by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions that cutting the qualifying period to three years would add 93,421 beneficiaries to the OAS rolls. Of those, 85,449 would qualify for the Guaranteed Income Supplement for Canada's poorest seniors, as well as a top-up for pensioners who do not receive the full OAS pension.


Oh, the media never disputed Ruby's figures, only the government figures, because Ruby is just so very believable! Kind of like Ignegative out in the wrong field with Kennedy who told us all that only 12% of the stimulus has been spent and the Mayor told them they were just plain WRONG, but the MSM forgot to cover that little tidbit.

Ruby is a typical Liberal, make of that what you will. The MSM is not doing their job, maybe that's why they are suffering from a lack of revenues.

An Enduring Love!

Face it, Ignegative is heading downhill at the speed of light, so who cares what the Liberals are up to, it's like watching the galaxy explode, nice light show, but nothing you can do about it except let it happen, and as a Conservative, grin!

I want to turn to a love story that makes my female heart happy, even though we have the classic sad ending. (I know this is old news)

I loved him in Dirty Dancing, but this dance with his wife, is soul shattering, they dance as one, in great love.....grab the Kleenex people.



I don't pay much attention to the Hollywood scene, so I had no idea that Patrick Swayze had been married for 33 years when he died at 57. It is truly a rare love story for Hollywood.



Patrick Swayze on how his marriage to Lisa is Hollywood's strongest

They are, perhaps as a result, completely inseparable. They even acted together in the 1987 sci-fi movie Steel Dawn. Actress Natasha Richardson sums up the attitude of Swayze's fellow stars when she says: "Theirs is a great, enduring love. It's inspiring to all of us. He has a wife who adores him at his side."

And Kelly Lynch, Swayze's co-star in the 1989 film Road House, says: "Like any great marriage, they seem to move together as one person. They're like a single organism. She is a strong, strong woman - very funny, very kind, very smart. They love each other - and it's apparent."




They reaffirmed their vows in 2008.

Swayze first met Lisa when she was just 16 and a pupil at his mother Patsy's ballet studio in Houston, Texas. "I robbed the cradle," joked Swayze, who was then 20. "But I knew she was the smartest chick I'd ever met."

He says now: "I have no greater respect for any other human being on this Earth like I have for her. I am honestly not sure I was born first or married first, but I sure like it.

"Part of me says I couldn't have made it through without her.

"The other part says I could have, but not nearly as elegantly."

His love for Lisa is echoed in his hit ballad She's Like The Wind, which he wrote for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.

"I just felt at that time that I'm very, very lucky to have a woman who thinks I hung the moon when I know I didn't," he recalled.



True love, needs to be trumpeted, respected and enjoyed. I never knew Patrick had a twin brother, but again I am Hollywood ignorant and happy to be so.

We lost another good one. My sympathies to his loving wife, Lisa. Be strong. I wonder is he will come back, as a ghost to comfort her. I hope so.

Looks Like Another Good Week For PM Harper!

As promised, PM Harper gave an economic update today (go to videos at right). All the Liberals could do was cry about him not being in Parliament to do it. Seriously? That's it? That's their big complaint?


Well, I guess you can forgive them because they are busy building bridges in Quebec. Remember those rickety wooden covered bridges built for the horse and carriage days but now used by cars? How safe are they for a big Mac truck to cross? Seems the Liberals have found out. The bridge will crumble and the resulting damage will cause shock waves all the way to Liberal Toronto.

If the Conservatives got slammed in Quebec for shifting arts funding to different organizations, NOT cutting money, and supporting stronger jail times for repeat criminal offenses of juveniles, what can the Liberals expect?

Still Ignegative plugs along, bringing in a no confidence motion, that the NDP will not support. Does either opposition party actually think they are fooling anyone? Seems not:

Judging by these posts, the Liberals are hard at it attacking the Report and Mr Harper before the Report has been given. Even attacking the place the P.M has chosen to given the report.! Well Iggy went out to an empty field to talk about a non issue which the Mayor of Hamilton had to correct the info to the media afterwards..lol. And Iggy had people believing that he posed in a forest when he probably used a backdrop at Walmart for his 'ad campaign ' to the public! What do the Liberals say to this?Get a life folks!

Typical Liberal supporters. Attacking the PM even before he says anything. No different than Ignatieff who says that the update doesn't matter, he will introduce a motion of non-confidence anyway. These are the updates he (Iggy) asked for, and he doesn't have the decency to even listen to them.I hope we get an election so Iggy and his stooges can lose badly, and he can run off to retire in his villa in France.


Think about how outstanding it is that the Conservatives are still leading the polls, through a recession! Meanwhile the Liberals are fighting out in the open in Quebec, and Toronto, their only two remaining strongholds. Can you smell the desperation of not only the Liberals but the NDP, who are now forced to support the Conservatives in fear of an election. How very weak the opposition is, and it's not going to get better for them anytime soon.

PM Harper was very relaxed today, even joking about not wanting an election, he knows that he can now rule like he has a majority. He can start to let people see that he is actually a very warm and funny person. You do not keep your MP's from revolting by being a dictator, as Ignegative has found out the hard way. So why are the Conservatives so united and the Liberals falling apart? Might it be something called real leadership by PM Harper? I think so. If the opposition votes against the government, I don't think the Conservatives are too worried about an election. HA!

So, sit back with your beer and popcorn and watch the opposition eat their own. Or a bear eating Ignegative! Great job on going green Ignegative!

Calling All Seals And Polar Bears!

It's time for the eco-nuts to put up or shut up! I want Al Gore front and center in helping these people. I want all the polar bear and seal wearing guys to jump in to help all these people.

'State of Calamity' as Philippines Flooding Leaves 106 Dead and Missing

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine officials said Sunday the number of dead and missing from Tropical Storm Ketsana has climbed to at least 106 people. The storm set off the worst flooding in the Philippine capital and nearby provinces in more than 42 years.

Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro said that army troops, police and civilian volunteers rescued more than 5,000 people — many of them nervously clinging to each other on roofs and on top of passenger buses after the storm struck the previous day.

The newly reported deaths included 12 villagers who died in a landslide in northern Pampanga province and nine others in Bulacan province, most of whom died by drowning. Also, an army soldier and four militiamen drowned while trying to rescue villagers in southern Laguna province.


Lefties are such hypocrites. They bellow loudly about climate change and when something happens in our world, they are sadly missing. Where are you Suzuki? Gore? HA, thought so. Big mouths selling carbon credits to their own businesses but not able to help the people who are really suffering.

Oh, the irony!

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama took a break from United Nations climate change discussions Tuesday night to call Gov. Sonny Perdue about the Georgia's worst weather-related disaster in recent years.


Did the President bother to tour the area? Nope, he sent VP Biden.

President Barack Obama was closely monitoring the situation from the G-20 economic summit in Pittsburgh, Biden said. After touring the devastation that washed out roads and highways, the vice president visited residents who have been staying at a Red Cross shelter in Cobb County.

Latoya Smith, 28, was in her car when the storms hit, and the mother of five managed to get her children out just before rushing water swept it away.

Smith greeted Biden at the shelter with her 3-year-old daughter Paris and 2-year-old son Lacarlo Clincy in tow. The vice president hugged the family and said help was on the way.

"I'm so glad he came and reassured us that, no matter what the situation is, we're going to be taken care of," Smith said. "I was so concerned but he made me feel like we're blessed, and it's going to be a better day."


Yikes, that lady is seriously clued out. So, where are the eco-nuts in Georgia? Why do we never hear about the environmentalists actually helping people? EVER.

Think about that, they are good at protesting in seal and polar bear suits, they are not so good a doing anything constructive. EVER.

CTV Biased? Wow, I'm shocked!

Really does CTV think it is being fair and balanced? Do they think we are stupid? Can they afford to tick off 38% of it's viewing audience? Do they do any actual research or do they just believe what the Liberals spew out of their mouths. Are they so petty that they think PM Harper should only announce things in Ottawa, so they don't have to get off their fat butts and actually work? Craig Oliver is a great reason for Conservatives to turn off their TV's and go for a walk.

First watch this great video that ChuckerCanuck found, it's Ignegative being slammed by the Mayor for misrepresenting a park that will be built 7 years earlier than planned because of the federal stimulus money.



Now, watch Owl Oliver whining and complaining about PM Harper.

PM Harper to deliver economic update on Monday in N.B.


The guy is so biased against anything the Conservatives do, he has to complain about the Prime Minister being in N.B. to deliver the message. Oliver supports anything the Liberals blow out of their a$$es, and think it smells like lilies. Also notice the thumbs up/down on the site. You can vote more than once just by leaving the article and coming back in if you use firefox. Obviously the lefties have figured this out and are spending their day giving thumbs down to any comment that supports Conservatives. Here is a perfect example of someone playing the game:

Larry I Ontario 27 48
What ever they report is lies anyway. They will twist and turn the numbers to make them look good


mike 617 33
The idea of Harper delivering his own report card is akin to the self-regulation of the financial industry and we all know how that turned out. In my opinion the lib-con deal for these reports usurped the mandate of various independent non-partisan bodies who have the legal and ethical responsibility to parliamentarians for performing this function.


tk in bc 28 43
Odds on this forecast being especially bad and much worse than previously predicted?

Seriously, folks. This is the same government that last year at this time was saying "everything's solid, good economic foundations, no need for deficit spending."

That led to a coalition against them, a break in government and this tenuous day-to-day management. Time for change!


Notice how Mike has 617 votes for his comment, while Larry and tk only have votes in the 40's? Someone is pumping mike's votes up by going back in to re-vote, I suspect it's probably mike himself. Just shows you how juvenile lefties really are.

Lefties, they even cheat on their comments, no wonder they don't mind voting for a party that has no values.

And Danny Boy Is Strangely Silent!

I'm puzzled why this dictator would even know where Newfoundland is, let alone want to pitch his tent there for a night. Thankfully he has changed his plans.

Moammar Gadhafi cancels Canada visit

Libyan Leader Moammar Gadhafi has cancelled a trip to Canada that had been scheduled for next week, according to media reports.

Gadhafi had planned the stop-over in St. John's, N.L., on his way home from his speech to the United Nations General Assembly last Wednesday, a wide-ranging rant that lasted more than 90 minutes.

The Canadian Press says the African strongman was planning to stay in the city early next week, and local officials were prepping to put up one of the leader's famed Bedouin tents.


Hey, Gadhafi, come pitch your tent in February, that would be fun.

Why did Gadhafi want to stop over in Newfoundland? Why is Danny, big mouth so silent now? Not one press release from Danny about the visit. No ranting from him about terrorists. Not a single word from the egomaniac who loves to get face time on TV.

Did Danny invite Gadhafi because of oil? Let me be clear, this is only supposition, I have no facts to support my opinion. I would hate for Danny to start an ABHunter campaign against me.

Still, why the silence from loud mouth Danny? OIL? Or has the news media forgotten about Danny now that he doesn't matter on the national level, after all, Newfoundland has no government MP's, so the media doesn't care about them anymore.

Newfoundland and Labrador government officials say no one from the province will welcome Gadhafi.

"We don't have any comment, and no provincial officials will be meeting with him," an official in Premier Danny William's office told CBC News on Thursday.


Come on, where is Danny, I love attention Williams? Why is he hiding? He was vocal enough during the last election, so vocal that Newfoundland has no representation in the current government because of his ABC campaign. Why has Danny gone silent now?

It Is Broke!

To the Congress:

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775 - you have had 234 years to get it right; it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935 - you have had 74 years to get it right; it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938 - you have had 71 years to get it right; it is broke.

The "War on Poverty" started in 1964 - you have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"; it hasn't worked and our entire country is broke.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 - you've had 44 years to get it right; they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970 - you have had 39 years to get it right; it is broke.

Trillions of dollars were spent in the massive political payoffs called TARP, the "Stimulus", the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009... None show any signs of working, although ACORN appears to have found how to milk the American taxpayer.

Cash for Clunkers" was established in 2009 and went broke in 2009! It took cars (that were the best some people could afford) and replaced them with high-priced and less-affordable cars, mostly Japanese. A good percentage of the profits went out of the country. And the American taxpayers take the hit for Congress' generosity in burning three billion more of our dollars on failed experiments.

So with a perfect 100% failure rate and a record that proves that "services" you shove down our throats are failing faster and faster, you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run health care system?

20% of our entire economy?

HEALTH TIP OF THE DAY:
If you are bothered by occasional or frequent constipation, look in the mirror and repeat the following phrase three times in succession when symptoms occur:

My present and future financial and personal well being are totally in the hands of…


Barack Obama


Joe Biden


Harry Reid


Nancy Pelosi


Tim Geithner


Rahm Emmanuel


Chris Dodd


and Barney Frank


If that doesn't scare the crap out of you, then you are probably destined to be backed up for the rest of your life.

'YOU KNOW, I THINK MY GIRL WAS DEAD!'
'DEAD?' SAYS HIS FRIEND, 'WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?'

'WELL, SHE NEVER MOVED OR MADE A SOUND ALL THE TIME I WAS LOVING HER.' HIS FRIEND SAYS, 'COULD BE WORSE I THINK MINE WAS A WITCH.'

'A WITCH ??. . WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU SAY THAT?'

Chinese Sex

While in China , a man is very sexually promiscuous and does not use a condom all the time he is there.

A week after arriving back home in the States, he wakes one morning to find his penis covered with bright green and purple spots.

Horrified, he immediately goes to see a doctor.

The doctor, never having seen anything like this before, orders some tests and tells the man to return in two days for the results.

The man returns a couple of days later and the doctor says, 'I've got bad news for you, you've contracted Mongolian VD. It's very rare and almost
unheard of here, we know very little about it.'

The man looks a little perplexed and says, 'Well, give me a shot or something and fix me up, Doc.'

The doctor answers, 'I'm sorry, there's no known cure. We're going to have to amputate your penis.'

The man screams in horror, 'Absolutely not! I want a second opinion.'

The doctor replies, 'Well, it's your choice. Go ahead, if you want but surgery is your only choice.'

The next day, the man seeks out a Chinese doctor, figuring that he'll know more about the disease. The Chinese doctor examines his penis and proclaims,
'Ah, yes, Mongolian VD. Vewy ware disease.'

The guy says to the doctor, 'Yeah, yeah, I already know that but what can we do? My American doctor wants to operate and amputate my penis!'

The Chinese doctor shakes his head and laughs. 'Stupid American docttah, always want to opawate. Make more money dat way. No need to amputate!'

Oh, Thank God!' the man replies.

'Yes,' says the Chinese doctor, 'wait two weeks. Faw off by itself!'

Bottle of Wine

A woman and a man are involved in a car accident on a snowy, cold Monday morning; it's a bad one. Both of their cars are totally demolished, but amazingly neither of them is hurt. God works in mysterious ways.

After they crawl out of their cars, the man is yelling about women drivers.

The woman says, 'So, you're a man. That's interesting. I'm a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but we're unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should be friends and live in peace for the rest of our days.'

Flattered, the man replies, 'Oh yes, I agree completely, this must be a sign from God! But you're still at fault...women shouldn't be allowed to drive.'

The woman continues, 'And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune.' She hands the bottle to the man.

The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman.

The woman takes the bottle, puts the cap back on and hands it back to the man.

The man asks, 'Aren't you having any?'

The woman replies, 'No. I think I'll just wait for the police...'

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Women are clever, evil b%$^hes.
Don't mess with them.

How do you like this security system?
This is a true story of a garage owner in the Southwest. (Probably Texas )
He was sick & tired of thugs breaking into his garage shop to steal tools etc. So he came up with this idea . . .. He put the word out that he had a new "Mexican lion" at the shop that would attack anyone who tried to break in or climb his fence. The would-be thieves saw the "Mexican lion" from a distance and fled the scene.
Ingenious guy!

Women Speak Out!

I'm not sure why any sane man would want more than one wife, but I guess the key word is "sane". (yes, I'm making light of a very serious subject because I can't imagine my husband being able to handle any wife but me, nor does he want to. Could he really love 20 other women? HA!)

It's easy to shrug, and say it doesn't concern you, but it's not that easy for the women and children that are affected.

Women Speak Out Against Polygamy

A woman who grew up in a polygamous family and lived for 28 years in a polygamous marriage says she’s shocked and saddened to learn Canada has quashed an opportunity to put polygamy on trial.

“If something isn’t done, women will keep on being abused and coerced into living lives that they don’t want to [live],” said Irene Spencer in a telephone interview from her home in Lodi, California. “It breaks my heart because I’ve been there.”
.......

Taught to believe that polygamy was not only expected — but required — to receive the rewards of heaven, in 1953, she married Verlan LeBaron, a man who was already married to her half-sister. She was 16 on her wedding day. Spencer would go on to have 13 children with LeBaron, and to see him take another eight wives. She describes her life at the time as one of poverty, drudgery and despair.

“Girls are denied education. Many girls married at 14 and 15. The men always say ‘marry them young so you can train them.’ They’re told all they need to know is how to keep house and raise children, so it makes it impossible for women to move into the outside world. They can’t leave the family because they don’t have the skills to survive on their own. The men make the rules.”

Told of the September 23 ruling, Spencer said Canada has lost an important opportunity to ensure equality for all, no matter their age or gender. “Religion has no right to cover up abuse,” she said. “Abuse hidden under the guise of religion is absolutely wrong.”
......

Other fringe sects and some fundamentalist Muslims also engage in polygamous marriage. But according to Farzana Hassan, president of the Muslim Canadian Congress, polygamous marriage is an “oppressive institution.”

“It’s all about dominance, control and power structures,” she says, noting that “extremely young” Muslim women have been imported to Canada for the purpose of becoming polygamous wives. “I’m not even sure that their consent counts in such cases,” Hassan said.

“Freedom of religion has to be seen within the larger human rights issue. And if human rights are being trumped by a religious practice, then that’s not acceptable.”



I think that pretty much says it all.

A door was opened to polygamy when the definition of marriage was changed. The Liberals told us that polygamy would not be made legal because of the changes in the rules. Any thinking person understood that the lefties were lying. If one man and one woman can be changed to one man and one man, or one woman and one woman, what logical argument can be used against one man and 20 women, or one woman and 20 men? How can you deny them the same rights and freedoms under our glorious charter of rights and freedoms? Why did the judge throw out the case? Supposedly for some kind of interference but in actuality, the courts could not rule that polygamy is illegal, if gay marriage isn't. They would have to rule that polygamy should be made legal, so to protect the lefties, they found some pithy reason to throw the case out.

Now two adults of any combination wanting to get married is good because you are committing to that one individual out of love. Can one man love 20 women? He might love the powerful feeling of being in charge and a kind of god or ruler, but he can not seriously love all 20 women. He is the lone wolf on the fringe of society, a flea of a person who rules by intimidation. They are fringe dwellers and they force "their" women and children to be marginalized in society.

As a woman, I am horrified by even the thought of young girls being married off to some 60 year old man at the age of 15 or 16. If a 60 year old guy raped a 16 year old girl, that guy would be put in jail, he would be considered a pervert, but if he marries her, it's okay? There is a thin line in polygamist communities, and our legal system is failing to protect those young girls.

Imagine growing up in a tightly monitored community where you are expected to obey your father, and you have been told, that 10+ wives are normal, from the day you could talk. This is a CULT, not a religion. If it is a religion, it needs to change. These guys are like Charles Manson, without the violence to outsiders. They are controllers.

Unfortunately, the ones being hurt are the women and children. It is unhealthy and must not be condoned.

Oh Canada, What A Great Day You Had!

Today, Canada caught the attention of the world, without PM Harper needing to be in the spotlight. As a matter of fact, Canada snubbed not only Iran, but the UN (Iggy doesn't understand that because he LOVES the UN).

First PM Harper stayed away from the UN speeches, instead he promoted a Canadian company right here in Canada, go Timmies!

Secondly our UN delegation pointedly left when President I'madirtbag of Iran was speaking. Funny how our news media failed to report that actual news. Not to worry Fox news covered the Canadians leaving the UN in protest. Thank you Fox News!



If that doesn't work try here.

So, I go to CTV to see coverage on the UN protest, and they have their own reporters spouting their view points, and some "experts" and Ignegative on video but strangely no video of the PM speaking from Tim Horton's. Could it be that PM Harper gave a very strong response to I'mgoingtokillyouwesteners? Too bad CTV still doesn't realize that youtube exists. Their bias makes me sick! They give Ignegative over 4 minutes of time but not one minute of coverage of our Prime Minister, not even a second of his speech. If you are as disgusted with CTV as I am, write down their sponsors, and send them a message, email them, and tell them you are boycotting them.





No Canadian citizen should be subjected to I'mreadytotakeovertheworld. The guy is a nut job. Funny how I'materrorist and Ignegative get air time on CTV, but not our own PM, he gets zero time. Bias? Personally I think Ignegative looks like a fool now that the US also walked out in protest, along with France and England.

Even Americans were envious of us Canadians having such a strong Prime Minister. Go over to Blue Like You to see the reaction.
She's got an army of researchers who give you better information than our biased media.

CTV, major fail! They even cleared all the thumbs up/down on the article hoping somehow real Canadians would change their minds and think the walking out protest was a bad idea. Too bad Canadians know better. Let's close down the UN in New York and move it to Guantanamo, that's where these dictators should be.

STOP IT, Enough Already!

I will go head to head with Suzuki and I bet I come out greener then he is. So, when I read about the Kyoto scam that failed miserably and how they now want the new Copenhagen scam...I just have to yell...

STOP IT, Enough Already!

Alberta is set to spend over 3 BILLION on carbon capture technology...it's a scam! I want that money to go toward health care and cancer technology, not some feel good green initiative that does nothing to fight REAL pollution. Clean up our lakes and rivers, our air and our land. Farmers are paying $100 for a bale of hay right now, they can not afford to keep any livestock at those prices. Expect lower beef prices, good for us, not so good for our farmers. Yet we are going to spend 3 Billion on capturing C02, a substance plants love? Has the world gone mad?

STOP IT, Enough Already!

World looks to China at climate summit

The United Nations says China has taken the lead in tackling climate change, but Canadian Environment Minister Jim Prentice says the Chinese government has yet to set firm goals for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

Chinese President Hu Jintao pledged at the UN Climate Change Summit in New York that his country would plant enough trees to cover an area the size of Norway, cut its dependence on non-renewable energy, and reduce its carbon pollution.


How many Norways does Canada, with it's thick woods, comprise? We drive for 10 hours between Edmonton Alberta and Kelowna BC seeing only trees, with the occasional small town. But, China is leading the way? Give me a break, the lefties are fawning all over Communist China, for planting a few trees?? Their population is in the BILLIONS, but a few trees should do it!

STOP IT, Enough Already!

Terence Corcoran: Growth first, climate later

In the great public policy battle between global economic growth and global climate change, the G20 is going for growth. And if growth trumps climate at the G20, that spells the end of any hope of a major climate agreement in Copenhagen in December.

Yikes, that isn't going to be very popular. Growth before eco-nuttery? That is just not politically viable, unless you are a lefty. We are told by the ultra lefty UN that we need to send massive amounts of funds to underdeveloped countries so that their dictators can fill their Swiss bank accounts, and climate change is the issue that makes everybody think they are protecting the planet? The people of Africa need those funds...too bad their dictators will never let them see a cent of that money.

STOP IT, Enough Already!

Sending aid to countries has not improved their situations. The UN insists that more aid in the form of global warming money will help them "come out of the dark", too bad, the people who really need the aid do not see it.

I am happy that PM Harper avoided the eco-love fest today. Let Obama carry the weight of environmentalism, he has already stated that energy costs will go up, dramatically, and he doesn't seem to have a problem with that, so go green Obama, lead us. HA!

When all is said and done, it is the worlds politicians who are trying to lead us down the socialist path, and I thank China and India for standing up against the eco-nuts, who want to bring world rule to the west. To PM Harper, thank you for staying away from the "global warming" issue, most Conservatives, especially those who work the land, understand that it is a huge wealth transfer from the productive to the unproductive countries.

So, I say once again, STOP IT, Enough Already!!

Obama, Is He Helping Americans?

I can only look down to the US and wonder what damage Obama is doing to Americans. Hope and Change or Rope and Chains?

Obama has rejected the Pentagon's first draft of the "nuclear posture review" as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials.

...

The review is due to be completed by the end of this year, and European officials say the outcome is not yet clear. But one official said: "Obama is now driving this process. He is saying these are the president's weapons, and he wants to look again at the doctrine and their role."


Brought to you by SDA's and Ace of Spades. I just want to add to their analysis, with this youtube video, I think it illustrates their point.

I wonder why everyone is surprised, when Obama clearly stated his point of view, as you can see on this August 3, 2008 video.



Surprised? Only the non-political would be surprised. So, is Obama helping Americans?

I Say Tomato! Make it Tomato Sauce!

Are those tomato plants giving you way too many tomatoes to eat? Don't want to waste them? Well let's be environmentally friendly then, let's turn them into pasta sauce!

I spent the day making pasta sauce and pickling my few cucumbers, so I have no idea if an election has been somehow called, or if Liberals are now proud of our flag, even though Ignegative thinks it looks like a beer label. Tonight I want to save those of you with tomatoes ripening and no time to eat them all.

Here is a fast (no peeling off skins) recipe for pasta sauce that you freeze.

Cut tomatoes (Roma work best) in half, get rid of the seeds with a melon ball. Lay them on a cookie sheet liberally basted with olive oil. Then throw on onions, green pepper, garlic and anything else you want, I add seasoning salt, Watkins Italian seasoning and a bit of sugar, cut everything in big chunks, no need to chop stuff finely, we are going to blend it up.


Throw in oven for 50 minutes at 350 or until slightly burnt on edges...adds to the roasted flavour. Cool and then blend. Pour into sandwich bags and freeze.

During the winter, take the pasta sauce out, add a can of tomato sauce and you can feed 4 people.

Next I did pickles. Sterilize jars, you can do that in your dishwasher, but I still do it the old fashioned way and use a canner. Once jars are sterilized, throw in garlic, dill, half a teaspoon of pickling spices, and a hot pepper. Fill jars with cucumbers, and then pour boiling brine into jar, filling them to the top. Seal tightly and let cool. Move them to a cold room, they will last for a year.

Brine:

12 cups water
4 cups vinegar
3/4 cup pickling salt

Boil for 3 minutes.



Unfortunately, the cold summer meant that I only got 8 jars of pickles instead of the 40 to 50 I usually get. Dang that global warming. I wonder if Lissy May has any recipes like these?

Next week pickled beets and if it's bad weather... perogies or cinnamon buns. Iggy should like the perogy recipe, didn't he grow up on them? I bet he would like my sauerkraut ones.

Cop Killer Gets Parole!



Edmonton police officer Ezio Faraone, (pictured above) was killed in the line of duty by two punks who had just robbed a bank.

I remember it clearly even now, it shocked all of Edmonton. It was total cold blooded murder. Now one of the thugs, has been released. Even Stelmach came out strongly against the National Parole Board of Canada's decision, and that's saying something.

Stelmach slams release

A man convicted in the 1990 killing of Edmonton Const. Ezio Faraone should be jailed for the rest of his life, says Premier Ed Stelmach.

Stelmach made the comments after 46-year-old Albert Foulston was granted statutory release yesterday to an Edmonton halfway house.

"He killed a police officer and he should stay in jail forever," a visibly upset Stelmach told reporters yesterday after being asked about the case.

"It was cold-blooded."

Faraone, 33, had cornered both Foulston and Jerry Crews after an Edmonton bank robbery. Foulston -- who was on parole at the time -- put up his hands in surrender but Crews blasted the officer with a sawed-off shotgun, killing him on the spot.

The head of the Edmonton Police Association lauded the premier for his comments.

"That's the mindset that is shared by the rank and file and all of the members of the police association and, I suspect, the majority of the public as well," said association president Sgt. Tony Simioni.


He was just about released in 2004, but even he knew it was not in his best interests to be openly let out. Here is a very comprehensive report on Foulston:

Foulston had nearly fifty convictions when Constable Ezio Faraone was murdered. He was on parole at the time, clearly demonstrating he couldn’t give a fig for the rules of a civilized society. After fourteen years in jail he has over 100 violations on his institutional record and has spent much of his time in segregation because of his behaviour.

He’s a heroin junkie and has been consistently involved in the drug culture while in prison. He has constantly and consistently breached the rules of prison while there and every time he has be out on escorted or unescorted temporary absences. He’s been back and forth between medium and minimum security prisons because every time he is given a little more freedom he reverts to using heroin. The use of which, I might add, raises the likelihood of him re-offending violently.

He is a career criminal who has spent most of his adult life in jail. When out on parole, he consistently re-offends until he is caught again. He was first sentenced to prison for an armed robbery in 1980, ten years before he and Crews robbed the bank on the day they ended the life of Constable Ezio Faraone.

There is absolutely no reason to believe Foulston will not re-offend. The last time he was on parole, he robbed a bank and was involved in the killing of a cop. What can we expect for an encore?


So, why did the National Parole Board release him? Even after this:

In a rare move, Edmonton's chief of police wrote to the National Parole Board recently asking that Foulston not be allowed out.

Chief Mike Boyd wrote that news of the con's imminent release "brought alarm and serious concern not only from members of the Edmonton Police Service, but from the citizens in the community we serve."

Even the parole board's own documents called Foulston "a high-risk, high-needs offender" with a "resentment towards persons in authority."

"Overall benefit of your lengthy incarceration has been minimal," the documents state. "A number of prior release attempts have resulted in failure, both in the form of relapse, and with serious reoffending."

Officials had earlier indicated Foulston was to be released tomorrow, but he was quietly released yesterday.


I want the National Parole Board to speak to us, tell us why they thought it was safe to release him into society, when it has never worked before. I want to hear these people:

Prairies Region

Full-Time Members
Allan, Craig Micheal
Harvey Cenaiko (Vice-Chairperson)
Bruce, Brian
Haasbeek, Patricia
Gobeil, Cécile
Musgrove, Heather
Perrault, Sharon
Scott, David
Vacing, Lorrie
Silbernagel, Harvey

Part-Time Members
Dennis, Dina
Dodds, Murray Allan
Elliott, Terrance
Fowler, Ian S.
Halko, Mike
Hayes, Robert
Kenny, Marilyn
Klein, Linda
Ladouceur, Ivan

tell us why they disregarded a police Chief's recommendation. Why did they not consider the victim, a police officer doing his duty. Why do they think Edmonton will be safer with this criminal out on our streets early? Maybe Lorrie, or Brian, or Dina should have him live in their house, so they can monitor him. After all, they think he is safe to release into society, so why not their house? HA, they probably don't even live in Edmonton, so no problem for them or their families. How about those of us who do live in Edmonton? Did they even think for a second about how safe we feel now? It appears not.

It's not just Canada that has idiots on their parole boards (look at the qualifications you need to be on the board, I bet Foulston qualifies) the US isn't much better:

Hospital Union Warned of Field Trip Dangers Before Killer Inmate's Escape
SPOKANE, Wash. — A criminally insane killer who escaped during a mental hospital field trip to a county fair remained on the run, and furious residents and officials wondered why such a dangerous person was out in public.


Heaven help us, where has common sense gone?

If George W. Was an Idiot...

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompTer installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potato as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?


So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?

Can't think of anything? Don't worry.

He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.


The above is making the email rounds, but it ties in wonderfully with Lorne Gunter's article from yesterday:

Obama's never found guilty by association

Suppose it was revealed that the pastor who had married George and Laura Bush, baptized their two daughters and ministered to their spiritual needs for 20 years was a raving white supremacist who, from the pulpit, preached the separation of the races, claimed that the promiscuity of African-Americans had quickened the spread of AIDS and mused about how America might be improved if black people were sent back to Africa.

Friday Night Funnies: Albino Moose


Or is that mooses?? Two of them, what are the odds?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Calmness In Our Lives

I am passing this on to you because it definitely works, and we could all
use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace.

Dr. Phil proclaimed, 'The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and never finished.'

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before the morning was over I finished off a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos,
and a box of chocolates.

You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now. Pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace.

P.E.I. Drunk, you just gotta love it!!!!

Recently, during a routine patrol, an RCMP patrolman parked down the street outside a Legion Hall just off the main Street in Charlottetown .. PEI .

After last call, the officer observed a man leaving the Legion Hall. The gentleman was so intoxicated that he could barely walk. He then stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car, which he fell into.

He sat there for a few minutes and then threw a hook and line out the window and seemed to be trying to catch a fish.. A number of other patrons paid no attention to this crazy drunk as they left the bar and drove off.

Finally the drunk started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine, dry summer night) flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn, and switched on the headlights.

He then pulled in the hook and line and moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patron vehicles left. At last, the parking lot was empty; he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road.

The officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over. He performed a breathalyzer test on the gentleman who cooperated fully, and to his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at all!

Dumbfounded, the officer said, 'I'll have to ask you to accompany me to Headquarters.
This breathalyzer equipment must be broken."
"I doubt it," said the truly proud Prince Edward Islander

"Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

A woman went up to the bar in a quiet rural
pub. She gestured alluringly to the bartender who approached her
immediately. She seductively signaled that he should bring his face
closer to hers. As he did, she gently caressed his full beard.

'Are you the manager?' she asked, softly
stroking his face with both hands.

'Actually,I am' he replied.

' I Have something to tell you,' she said,
running her hands beyond his beard and into his hair.

'I like the way you tell things,' breathed the
manager, 'What is it?'

She continued running her forefinger across the
managers lips, popping a couple of her fingers into his mouth and
allowing him to suck them gently

She whispered to the now breathless manager,
'There's no toilet paper, hand soap, or paper towels in the ladies room.'
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara, CA last week caused these two to take shelter together. The fawn is 3 days old and the bobcat about 3 weeks. The fawn came from somewhere in the fire and the bobcat from Carpentaria. They immediately bonded and snuggled together under a desk in the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office for several hours.

An extremely alert reader is reporting that Animal Planet is reporting the bobcat kitten was rescued near Arnold Schwarzeneggers ranch, where it was dehydrated and near death.
They rescued the fawn during last weeks wildfire. Although wild animals, especially of separate species, are never placed together due to regulations, in this emergency situation, they had no choice. During the mayhem of the fire, they were forced to put animals anywhere they could, since they had run out of crates large enough for the fawn. The kitten ran to the fawn, and it was instant bonding.

Here's a riddle:


Hillary, Biden and Obama were on a donkey, at the edge of a cliff.
The donkey got spooked and jumped off the cliff.
Who was saved? (Answer later.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have four extra tickets for the Robbie Knievel (son of Evil Knievel) Event at the Ford Center next weekend in Beaumont, Texas, if anybody wants them.


Robbie is going to try to jump over 1,000 Obama supporters with a Caterpillar D-9 bulldozer. It should be fun.

Leave Lucy ALONE!

You stinking supposed animal lovers want to kill Lucy! Leave Lucy alone!

My family has enjoyed watching Lucy for years. We want nothing but the best for her, as do her caregivers. Why are PETA, William Shatner, and Bob Barker so concerned after 32 years of Lucy's life? Could it be that they actually care about her? Let's see how they care about other animals:

Kill Knut? The Twisted Logic of Animal Rights Extremists

Animal rights activists, as SPIEGEL reported Monday, aren't so enthralled with the polar bear baby. They are concerned that Knut, who is being raised by human hand after his mother rejected him, is in danger of losing touch with the bear necessities. Some would like to see him dead.

Why?

"Raising him by hand is not appropriate to the species but rather a blatant violation of animal welfare laws," animal rights activist Frank Albrecht told the mass circulation newspaper Bild, whose front page headline Monday read "Will Sweet Knut Be Killed by Injection?"

Berlin Zoo is allowing Knut to be raised in such a way that the bear will have a behavioral disorder for the rest of his life, Albrecht believes. "In actual fact, the zoo needs to kill the bear cub," he adds.

He's not alone. Wolfram Graf-Rudolf, director of the Aachen Zoo, told the newspaper, "I don't consider it appropriate for the species that the little polar bear is being raised on a bottle." The animal will be fixated on his keeper and not be a "real" polar bear, he says. However he feels it is now too late to put Knut out of his supposed misery. "The mistake has been made. One should have had the courage to put him to sleep much earlier."


So kill the baby polar bear. Funny Bobby Barker claims our harsh winters are bad for Lucy, so maybe ALL zoos with polar bears should return them to Canada, or as some wacky eco-nut has suggested bring the polar bears to the Antarctic so they can feed on penguins. Oh, but PETA saves animals, so we should listen to them:

Exclusive: PETA’s Pet Killing Program Set a New Record in 2008


Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade’s worth of proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills thousands of defenseless pets at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 21,339 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them.


Hey, Booby Barker, maybe you should look at PETA and their record of animal abuse. Leave Lucy alone!

Bob Barker can't convince Edmonton to move elephant



Earlier this week, the zoo released an expert report that concluded a move would endanger the 34-year-old elephant's life.

Dr. James Oosterhuis, a veterinary consultant in San Diego, examined Lucy and issued a letter to the zoo explaining how the elephant is having breathing issues.

"Her current respiratory problems preclude any thought of moving her and in fact, it would be life threatening," wrote Oosterhuis. "It is my opinion that it would be unethical for any veterinarian to recommend moving her."

Zoo manager Linda Cochrane said it appeared they simply agreed to disagree with Barker and the two animal experts who joined him at the meeting.

"We're responsible for this elephant," said Cochrane. "We've had her here for 32 years and we just want to do what's in her best interests."


Check out the comment section:

I think Bob Barker should be put into a retirement home. After all, he would be much happier there than with his friends in the TV world. Wouldn't he? Yeah, that's what should be done. He is old, and can't think for himself, so he should be in a retirement home. Let's send him to one, so he can live out the rest of his life in comfort. I suppose it should be somewhere warm, so he won't be cold. How about Bangladesh?


Bet he wouldn't like that idea, any better than Lucy likes his ideas. Go Home Bob, and look after your own problems.

The eco-nuts will not listen, they don't think killing thousands of dogs and cats is bad, but one happy well cared for elephant in Edmonton is a means to increasing donations, and don't let them fool you, it's all about money. Like the 3 protesters in Washington who got arrested for stopping traffic in DC.


Yikes! Can you say off your rocker weirdos? Lets see, 21,339 animals killed by PETA, versus 1 elephant, that they are willing to kill by moving her. Knut, they wanted to kill him too, what's with PETA and killing animals?

Leave Lucy alone!

It Wouldn't Be Politically Correct!

Hey, you know those few communists who killed all those millions of people? Well it appears that we don't want to offend them, it wouldn't be politically correct.

Ottawa memorial risks offending communists

Kevin Libin, National Post

Plans for a monument on Parliament Hill to honour the estimated 100 million or so innocent men, women and children killed at the hands of Communist regimes around the world, on the other hand, have hit a snag, with the NCC worried that a "Memorial to the Victims of Totalitarian Communism" risks giving offense to communists.


REALLY? We might offend some communists? Yikes, we better not, it wouldn't be politically correct....

"I was unsettled by this name, and other members of the committee agreed with me," Hélène Grand-Maître, one commission member, said at the public approval hearing. "We should make sure that we are politically correct in this designation.... I feel this name should be changed." (I feel... great rationalization of your point.)

Board member Adel Ayad noted that people who identify as communists might "not like" the memorial. "It's not communism itself that we should be fighting here. It is rather totalitarianism we are against in any form."


Their solution?

Perhaps, suggested another, the best route would be to be avoid specifics, strike "communism" from the proposed name altogether, and dedicate the memorial to "victims of oppressive regimes," so as not to single any particular ideologies out.
....
Already the group has had to make compromises. Earlier this year, it altered the proposed name, from a memorial to the "victims of communism," to one for the "victims of totalitarian communism." Though you'd look awfully hard to find any another kind, the NCC suggested that incriminating communism as a general ideology might be "unduly critical" of Canadians who still carry a torch for Karl Marx.


Oh, so that makes it better, let's call it "totalitarian communism", or better yet get rid of the term "communism" altogether. I get it now, so when I blog about Islam making women slaves, that is unacceptable, but if I blog about RADICAL Islam making women slaves, that is now politically acceptable and therefore okay. Or maybe I should call it radical oppressive regimes that treat their women like slaves. Ooops bet I can't use the word slaves.

CHECK. This politically acceptable thingy is hard to grasp because it is your typical liberal thinking, but I think I have it now.

"It's ridiculous to try and write the crimes of communism out of history," he says. "If Canada had a Nazi party, does that mean it would be verboten to criticize Nazis?"


Tisk, tisk, you should have said, ALLEGED communism and ALLEGED Nazi party. Like the British allegedly won on the Plains of Abraham. Oh, oh, now I've offended the province of Quebec.

So when my neighbour, who was in a refugee camp for a year before coming to Canada, talks about her life under the communist regime, she should also be politically correct when talking about the alleged communists who made her and her families life a LIVING HELL!

Right I get it now. She didn't really suffer anything in her life and if she did, it was not because of alleged communism. It wouldn't be politically correct for her to mention it, because it might offend an actual communist.

CHECK.

Two Groups, Which Do You Support?

Another compare and contrast for my readers. First up, compare our favorite eco-nuts.

Activists stage oilsands demonstrations in advance of Obama visit

Okay, to the editor....Obama is NOT visiting the oilsands. Maybe he should, because China is looking good right now! At least they didn't call them the tarsands.

Two dozen Greenpeace members from Canada, the United States and France chained themselves to giant earth-moving equipment, shutting down Shell’s massive Albian Sands oilsands mine in northwestern Alberta for several hours.


24 people from Canada, the US and France???? 24??? Wow that makes the 1.2 million people protesting in Washington look like small potatoes.

Now, let's contrast that to this:

Victims of crime group may be forced to shut down


The Ottawa-based Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime, which has been a national voice for victims of violence, fraud and abuse since 1992, has been told the cash-strapped Canadian Police Association is pulling its funding within weeks.

Executive director Heidi Illingworth sent a letter to supporters Tuesday warning of the risk of closure and calling on the federal government to pick up the unexpected shortfall.

Calling him a “personal supporter” of the CRCVC, Illingworth also wrote to Prime Minister Stephen Harper requesting funding that amounts to roughly the same cost as the incarceration of a single federal prisoner for one year.


So who funds the eco-nuts? How can they fly to Alberta in the "dozens" and yet a group helping the Victims of Crime need only $50,000 to $100,000 to keep helping victims and they might not be able to get it? Alberta should take some of the 2 Billion it is shoveling into the useless carbon capture scheme and help victims of crime instead.

It's time to help REAL charities, who are helping REAL people in need. Not the eco-nuts. Can you hear this Albertans? Canadians? Is our government going to listen? If they can bail out GM, they can temporarily help CRCVC, but only until Canadians take up their cause.

I admit that I am not familiar with CRCVC, but it sure seems like a great cause.
It has to be better than the eco-nuts who chain themselves to anything to get attention, but do nothing to actually help anyone.

Polls, Polls, Polls!

I love watching the polls, there is lots of fun stuff to look at and analyze. First a comment left at CTV:

BCGirl
I've asked around and every woman I have spoken to agrees: Ignatief creeps us out.
Maybe we need to take a close look at this guys past, there's got to be a reason for this.


I actually think that she is on to something. Looking at the latest Nanos poll, it appears that not only is support from women strong for PM Harper, but a surprising support from young people is starting to show up as well.


Conservative 38% +6
Liberal 33% -1
NDP 15% -4
BQ 10% +1
Green 5% -2

Funny how this CTV interview only mentions the Conservatives are "slightly" ahead of the Liberals.

Another Nanos poll on leadership has PM Harper at 99 and Iggy at 54 with Layton closing in on Iggy at 40.

On the question of most trustworthy leader:

............Iggy .....Harper
Males 15.2 .....35.1
Female 12.9 .....27.6
18 to 29 7.1 .....25.4
30 to 39 11.1 .....26.7

Those are startling numbers. Is it because Iggy is older that his support is down with both females and younger people? His numbers are no better with the older generation. It appears that Canadians of all age groups and genders are supporting PM Harper. Must suck to be Iggy right now. Even my husband, who refuses to talk politics with me, mentioned tonight that Iggy is an old guy who should go back to the US.

Also Ipsos released a new poll as well:

The Conservatives have the support of 39 per cent of decided voters, according to the Ipsos Reid survey, commissioned by Canwest News Service and Global National. The Tory support level is unchanged from the last Ipsos national poll on Aug. 21.

The Liberals have 30 per cent support, up two percentage points from Aug. 21. The NDP dropped two points to 12 per cent, while the Green party fell two points to eight per cent. The NDP received 18 per cent support in the last federal election in October 2008, but have fallen to 12 per cent in four separate Ipsos polls since then.


Who will you vote for if an election is called?
Conservatives 57%
Liberals 21%
NDP 8%
Bloc Québécois 1%
Not Sure 13%
29588 responses, not scientifically valid, results updated every minute.

What does this all mean? NO ELECTION anytime soon.

In Praise Of Michaelle Jean!


I never thought I would say this, because I was so sure Michaelle was a bad choice as Governor General, but I like this lady a lot!

I was worried because her husband had connections to the separatists, but she is a smart lady, and has represented Canada with honour.

I especially liked her respect for our northern friends, and her support for the seal hunt. I can't believe she wasn't queasy just seeing a dead animal, but to eat a small piece of the heart, was very brave.



Then we have her dancing:



And she is a strong supporter of our military:

GG says war in Afghanistan far from 'lost cause'


Jean wiped away tears while laying flowers at the centotaph at Kandahar Airfield, which bears the names of 129 Canadian soldiers killed as part of the Afghan mission since it began in 2002 -- including Maj. Yannick Pepin and Master Cpl. Jean-Francois Drouin, both of whom died Sunday when their convoy was struck by an improvised explosive device, or IED.

"It's painful when we see our soldiers being wounded or being killed by these IEDs," Jean said in an interview with The Canadian Press.

"But we have to remember that every time they try to destroy those terrible weapons, they're saving lives of civilians here and the Afghan children."

Jean later told several hundred Canadian troops that their deeds would not be forgotten.

"Know that your fellow Canadians are very proud of what you accomplish here and are very much aware of the sacrifices you make," she said.

"You have come to this troubled area of the world to defend the democratic ideals to which all peoples should be able to aspire. You, who risk everything to create a safe environment . . . (for) the women, children and men of Afghanistan."


..... She said the suggestion that Canada's war in Afghanistan is a "lost cause" hurts her deeply.

"I think it's important to see that our efforts are not in vain, and when we hear Afghan people and even children saying that the priority is security -- this is what they hope for," she said.

"It's very important that Canadians realize that, yes, our soldiers are taking many risks, but are also doing something that is absolutely exceptional."


I think she has been an outstanding representative for our country. She is warm, attractive, and understanding of people who are less fortunate. She is truly a woman that personifies our country, our diverseness, and our ability to wrap all peoples in our countries arms.

Funny how I can't find that video where she was very passionate about supporting our troops. Anyone have a link to that video?
