Hillary.... Blame Canada!

Hillary came to Canada and thinking that we still bow down and listen to the US, proceeded to stick her foot in her mouth, and make herself look like the "ugly American" we've all heard about but refuse to believe exists. Oh, except for lefties who are anti-American, unless it's Democrats in power.

Hillary is like a female sow (Status of Women) in the jewelry shop. She came, she saw sparkling Arctic ice and wanted it for the US. Then she saw our shining gems in Afghanistan and wanted them too. Finally, she saw Belinda in the reflection of her jaded glasses and wished her away by means of lecturing to Canada on how taxpayers should pay for diamond killing in Africa.

Is she so petty that she was paying back Bill for Belinda? Bewitching blonde casts spell on Bill

Or does she just not get this diplomacy idea? You do not come to a friends house and poop on their carpet, but that's what she did. Funny how Americans think she is so smart and Palin is so dumb, when it is actually the reverse.

Iffy, after his massive embarrassment in having his own MP's defeat his abortion bill, grabbed Hillary's support of abortion and ran with it, right into a gold brick wall. Obama, his idol, has signed a bill after being pressured, by his own Democrats, that specifically states that abortion in the US will not be funded by taxpayers money. Yet Iffy wants Canadians to pay for abortions in Africa, because Hillary said so?? How American of him!

Tom Clark was pressuring a Conservative MP about why we aren't going to stay in Afghanistan if both America and the UK want us to be there. Does Clark understand the hypocrisy of his question? Conservatives for the first time in history allowed ALL MP's in Parliament to determine if our troops would stay in Afghanistan, previously the government in power just decided without consultation, and the OPPOSITION told this minority government that we MUST get out FULLY in 2011, and that is what the government is doing. It couldn't be anymore clear than that. Since 2008 the PM has been telling all allies that we are out by 2011, yet Clark pretends that this is a surprise? Get real! CTV are such liberal toadies it's downright embarrassing.

Hillary is a perfect example of the Peter Principle, she is in way over her head. As your typical arrogant Liberal, I bet she didn't even realize that she was in a foreign country, and that she could not just spout off her opinions as if Canada was one of the 57 states Obama thinks he rules over.

I have never respected Hillary because she stayed with Bill. If she was the independent feminist woman she pretends to be, she would have left him in a flash. After her visit here, I have even less respect for her, because she has no understanding of what her statements about the Arctic, Afghanistan and Abortion meant to Canadians, and she couldn't care because Canadians have no power to elect her. She left behind a mess, and is too stupid to understand what she did. Feminists. Democrats. Blame Canada.

With Slow Measured Steps...

We will take back our freedom of speech! Have you ever stopped and thought before you said "Merry Christmas" to someone? Saying "Merry Christmas" used to be an automatic response in this country, it isn't anymore. There is nothing hateful about saying "Merry Christmas" but now you might "offend" someone, and the way the HRC's are going, soon you could be hauled before them for just that reason, saying "Merry Christmas".

Ann Coulter, just by her trip to Canada, might actually do more to wake Canadians up about our erosion of free speech, than anyone, even Mark Steyn. She wasn't even in the country yet when she ran up against our lefty culture at universities in this country. When the students at UofOttawa managed to shut down her speech, they clearly showed how badly our country has gone off the rails regarding free speech. They shone a light on their own hateful attitudes, not just to Canadians, it made the news internationally. It also gave the Conservatives the perfect opening to start the freedom of speech issue, and they have started the ball rolling, in the most interesting of ways, in the Senate!

The senate, filled with old political appointed hacks.... some still left over from the Trudeau days, linger in the halls, like ghosts of an era gone by. Today, some of the new blood that has been injected into the senate, stood up and started the debate on free speech, and wonderful speeches they were!

I notice that Ezra has posted about this issue, so I will refer you to his post for all the relevant coverage. He is the expert in this issue, as he has had to suffer through 900 days of HRC rage and it's still not over for him.

This is a great start, and I think we have to thank Ezra, Coulter and Steyn for getting the ball rolling. I have already emailed Premier Ed about the AHRC's but so far, nothing is being done. It will be an election issue for me, my vote goes to the party that will shut them down.

Arctic.....Everybody Wants A Piece!

I must admit I hadn't heard about the Arctic Counsel until Hillary blasted Canada for not including it in today's meetings, and with the same breath asked Canada to stay in Afghanistan. The US, making enemies of their friends, at an astonishing rate!

Clinton blasts Canada for exclusive Arctic talks

Ms. Clinton's bombshell, delivered in a prepared statement as she was meeting with Mr. Cannon and senior ministers from three other Arctic coastal nations - Denmark, Norway and Russia - cast a cloud over a meeting that was intended to show solidarity among the ocean's five shoreline states and highlight their "unique" position as chief guardians of the region's environment and resource riches.

"Significant international discussions on Arctic issues should include those who have legitimate interests in the region," said Ms. Clinton, "and I hope the Arctic will always showcase our ability to work together, not create new divisions.

"We need all hands on deck because there is a huge amount to do, and not much time to do it. What happens in the Arctic will have broad consequences for the earth and its climate. The melting of sea ice, glaciers and permafrost will affect people and ecosystems around the world," she said, "and understanding how these changes fit together is a task that demands international co-operation."

Well Hillary, good to see you didn't need a teleprompter to read your prepared notes, too bad you can't think about what is good for the Arctic, and it is not the EU! They banned seal, why should they be included in Arctic discussions? Also if you would look on a map, the only true Arctic nations are Canada, US (thanks to Alaska), Russia, Norway and Denmark. Why should Finland be included? Or Iceland, they are in the Atlantic, it appears India and China want in on our resources as well.

To many in the European Union - which was recently blocked by Canada and others from gaining even "observer" status at the Arctic Council because of the continent's ban on seal products - Monday's party-of-five brainstorming session represented a troublesome narrowing of polar interests at a time when the wider world, including China and India, is angling for greater involvement in charting the future of the circumpolar realm.

HA! At least Canada stopped the EU from gaining any status on the Council! Maybe the EU should think about their position... ban seal products worth about 2 million a year, or get your grubby little muckers on some Arctic oil?

Oh, Hillary, the Northwest passage is Canada's waters, NOT international waters, that's what this is all about isn't it? Band together with other countries so you get free sailing through our waters.

If you think that is bad, go to the Arctic Counsel's site and see how many organizations and special interest groups think they should have some say in what we do with our land!

The environmentalists have their sticky little fingers all over this Council.

There are six Working Groups of the Arctic Council:

* Arctic Contaminants Action Program (ACAP)
* Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)
* Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF)
* Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response (EPPR)
* Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME)
* Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG)

No working group on oil drilling? It's an environmentalists dream come true! No wonder only countries who actually have land in the Arctic Ocean were invited, look at just one of the lists of organizations:

Well, well, well, looky there, it's the WWF!! Who would have guessed? These are the organizations that want some say in the Arctic? PM Harper sure is right, if we don't protect it, we will lose it! Not to be left out:

That's right the UN! The snakes are all lined up in the grass, just waiting for the Arctic to melt. Too bad, it's going to get much colder before anyone is going to be cruising through the Northwest passage with anything but a nuclear sub!

Butt out of Canada's Arctic!

University Students Want MORE Money!

Okay, first off, 4 students trying to live on $7.50 a day is a very small sample group, so you have to take that into consideration.

Students say $7.50 a day food budget is not enough

Rachel Crane and Andrew Beach were two of four Ontario university students who took part in the Food For Thought initiative launched by the Ontario Undergraduate Students' Alliance. For three weeks, they stuck to the tight food budget to highlight that the Ontario government has not raised student loan limits in four years.

Beach, an undergrad at the University of Western Ontario, says while it may be possible to survive on a $7.50/ day food budget, eating nutritiously is another story.

"It's really hard. Trying to get a healthy balanced diet, getting enough fruits and vegetables, keeping your carbohydrates and protein in balance, it's really difficult on $7.50 a day," he told CTV's Canada AM Friday.

"And that's the point we wanted to prove."

So, they set out to prove that $7.50 a day is not enough, so of course they proved it! DUH! So, let's do some math. 7.50 a day for 30 days is $225 per month for one person. For four people it's $900 per month. The four people have the advantage of bulk buying, not too many single people will buy a ham and eat it for the week, yet my family of four can eat a ham for at least 3 days. Still a single person can buy the ham, cook it and then freeze what wasn't eaten, this can provide lots of quick meals. Turkey works even better because you can make turkey soup from the bones, and then freeze it.

OSAP's 2009-2010 outline for monthly living expenses allots $1,045 for a single student living away from home. That covers all living expenses, including food, shelter, transportation and miscellaneous. Out of the $1,045, $226 is allotted for food, which works out to about $7.50 a day or $2.50 per meal.

The Ontario Undergraduate Students' Alliance says not only is that allotment for food unreasonable, it does not allow for healthy eating -- especially in expensive cities and remote locations.

The alliance says that over a school year, the living allowance adds up to $12,540. That‘s below the Low-Income Cut-off, or poverty line, in Ontario, which currently sits at about $15,200 for rural areas, and it's well below the $22,171 poverty line in big cities.

"Right now, with OSAP, you're $3,000 below the poverty line," says Beach. "So the government is expecting students may have to live in poverty while going to university."

Okay, so they get a living allowance of $12,540. Many students in the comments noted that they might not have cooking facilities because they were living in residence. Remembering back to my residence days, you got living quarters and FOOD for one low price. So, I checked out residences in Ontario.

The university of Toronto has residences

All you can eat meals and even meals to go from the Java Shack:

How much does that cost students?

So, if we go with the SUPER Single option, it costs $14,855. That means a student would have to come up with $2,315 of their own money, but if they go with the double room carte blanche, it's only $11,900, meaning a cash strapped student would have $640 left over, without having to work.

Now, Beach is from Western, so I looked up the residence rates there:

Even a better deal, I could choose a double room with 7 day meals and only have to pay $8,970, leaving me with $3,570!!! Of course these students don't want a double room, so a single room is $9570, that still leaves them with $2,970! These limousine lefties think tuition should be free, heck, they think everything should be free, because they are the generation of tomorrow, heaven help us! With their socialist attitudes, they will expect companies to just give them jobs, whether they are qualified or not. Don't expect them to care for our elderly either, they already think they are a drag on our society.

I wonder if they could use their brains to think about free post-secondary education for everyone. If everyone is entitled to have a free education, then how much would their degrees be worth? A great example is lawyers, anyone can get their law degree, and because of that there are too many lawyers, so most do not make that good a living, better than those with arts degrees, but not by much. Now, open up the universities to anyone who wants to go, more degrees, more people competing for the same jobs, lower salaries. Econ101.

To the food challenged university students, get a few tomato seeds, plant in container, stick in window, water once in a while, and soon, you have cherry tomatoes for about $3, same with herbs. Buy a big bag of rice for about $20, it will last at least a year. Get a box of chicken breasts, usually at least 20, for about $23 with coupon.

Take chicken, cut into pieces, throw into rice with cherry tomatoes, some herbs, and you have a meal for about $2.30 in less than 30 minutes.

This whining about how expensive an education is has to stop. You can not live off your parents all your life, and you can not live off of taxpayers all your life either. Sooner, or later, you will have to get a job and leave the "safe" university environment and actually compete for the first time in your life!

You might even find out that you like it!

McGuinty Gets Smacked Down By Pierre!

You might have seen the Hansard on some blogs, but you have not seen it live from the floor of the House. This is one of the best smack downs I have ever seen, too bad the MSM failed to cover this. I thought Ann Coulter was ALL the rage with them, guess not when their lefty friends get verbally smacked.

Pierre Poilievre absolutely demolished McGuinty in this exchange.

Watch Mark Holland, he is not too happy about the whole exchange. Is he starting to realize how lame the Liberals really are? He was a star with Dion, not so much with Iggy.

I understand that MP's have some sort of immunity in Parliament, but that was established in the old days before TV cameras reported everything in Question Period. This immunity junk has to stop. Any MP can make outrageous statements and they can not be held accountable, but the MSM can then use what they said without worry of prosecution.

So McGuinty can get up and slander Ann Coulter without any fear of prosecution. What he spouted was just as bad as anything Ann Coulter has ever said, but Parliament protects him.

Great job Pierre! I love your style of delivering body blows to the opposition!

Friday Night Funnies: Bungie Jumping

A precious little girl walks into a petsmart shop and asks,in the sweetest little lisp, between two missing teeth, "Excuthe me,
mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?"

As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he's on her level and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabbit,or a thoft and fuwwy, bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?"

She, in turn, blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says, in a tiny quiet voice,"I don't think my python weally gives a thit."


When you are down in the dumps and think you have real problems, just remember:


Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in
Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.
She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind
their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still
walk behind their husbands.

Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the
women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,
'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once
tried so desperately to change?'

The woman looked Ms.Walters straight in the eyes, and
without hesitation said, 'Land Mines.'

Moral of the story ~

The £2.99 Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for £2.99.

'Sounds good,' my wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs.'

'Then, I'll have to charge you three pounds and forty-nine pence because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?' my wife asked incredulously.

'YES!!' stated the waitress.

'I'll take the special then,' my wife said.

'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.

'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.

WE'VE been around the block more than once!
The Bravest Mouse Ever! He did survive!


Have a great weekend! Thanks to all my contributors, you make my job much easier!

I Found Another Ann Coulter Hater!

She calls herself a journalist. She blogs too! Wow I'm impressed! So let's see what she blogs and how impartial she is, being a journalist and all.

So the title of her blog post is: "Ann Coulter spouts hatred" Then she opens up her blog to free speech, except it appears she doesn't really want any debate.

Notice that my comment as Hunteroffortune was posted at 7:42 EST, it is now 2:25 EST and my comment is still in moderation. Funny she said she was opening up her blog to "freedom of speech" but has forgotten to post my comment. Typical lefty.

I hear that Calgary erupted into massive protests against Ann Coulter, oops, I guess not.

In Calgary, about 40 protesters were nearly outnumbered by the reporters sent to cover them.

Sorry little journalist kathy rumleski, it's the easterners who are the haters, Calgary respected Ann Coulter's right to speak. It's funny how easterners think that we are the intolerant ones. I guess us gun toting, truck driving, rednecks understand tolerance better than the rabid lefties from the east.

Lefties are looking pretty stupid right now. They have shown the international community that free speech is not tolerated in Canada unless it is a far left person talking. It needs to change.

Leftard Disgraces Canada On FOX News!

Twice in one day, Susan Cole goes on FOX News and disgraces Canada. That means over 40 million Americans now know how stupid she is, and they think ALL Canadians are just like her.

Bill O'Reilly totally makes her look like a fool, but I bet she is such a leftard that she thinks she did a good job.

Someone should ask her if she was okay with the Jewish Hate Week that the UofO just had. A Houle and Cole make a good pair, both think only lefties should have free speech in Canada.

Most interesting is this actual clip of the Muslim who asked Ann a question:

Now Ann was being nice until the lefties in the audience kept shouting "answer the question", so she did. Some interesting details about that innocent little 17 year old Muslim girl have since come to light:

Meet Poor Fatima, the victim of Ann Coulter.

Fatima Al Dhaher that poor thing who was offended by Ann Coulter's camel comment, just happens to be a fan of a Facebook group that offends everyone - It's Called Palestine Not Israel!

Dear Fatima, Gotcha sweety even though you have deleted the reference to your little hate group;)

Update: Frumpy has a pic of the outraged Muslima reading her "question" to Ann Coulter from a blackberry, leading me to suspect that like the Maclean's sockpuppets this kid did not act uninstructed.

Funny, it seems she joined a HATE group! But she is a victim? A victim of her own stupidity maybe, but that's all our fault!

I am getting sick and tired of minorities yelling at us taxpayers about how hard done by they are and then finding out that we have been scammed. How about we de-fund the University of Ottawa, and make these radical students pay their own way. Ann was right, she should start wearing a burka, that would make the lefties crazy. You can not in Canada attack the Muslim faith, no matter how many honour killings occur in the name of their faith.

I wonder if FOX picked the most rabid lefty they could find to show Americans what might happen to their country in a few years under Obama.

Lefties Wet Pants Over Ann Coulter!

Yikes, the lefties shut down Ann Coulter in Ottawa, wish they could do that to Question Period.

Is Houle responsible for the violent protests against Ann Coulter? Is he responsible for those rabid protesters coming out? For them pulling the fire alarm? (that is a criminal offense, for all you lefties) If you know the angry woman in the picture, let's post her name and history.

Look closely, she is actually foaming at the mouth!! Is that violent enough for the Human Rights Commissions? Foaming at the mouth is a pretty good indication that the person is close to violence, or rabid, neither is a good thing.

What the stupid lefties have done is give Ann Coulter a huge boost in book sales and ratings because until Houle wrote his email, not many Canadians actually knew who Ann Coulter was.

I seriously hope that Ann Coulter, now that the university of Ottawa has showed they are prejudiced, goes to our HRC's. It is a no win for the HRC's. If they refuse to look into the incident, Canadians know they are hypocrites. If they proceed Houle has to pay for his own defense just like Ezra, unless the taxpayer funded university kicks in the funds, then that looks real bad to Canadians. It's a no win for Houle, and a can't lose for Coulter. Even if she loses the case, she wins because she has forced a lefty to understand what Ezra and other Conservatives have had to go through because of our biased HRC's. Have they ever processed a claim against a Muslim? They have against a Jew (Ezra), why not Muslims, are they special because of their skin colour? Has an First Nations person been investigated by the HRC'S, or are only white people prosecuted?

'Free speech in Canada leaves much to be desired': Ann Coulter after event cancellation

“The University of Ottawa is really easy to get into, isn’t it?” she said in an interview after the cancelled event. “I never get any trouble at the Ivy League schools. It’s always the bush league schools.”

Ms. Coulter said she has been speaking regularly at university campuses for a decade. While she has certainly been heckled, she said this is the first time an engagement has been cancelled because of protesters.

“This has never, ever, ever happened before — even at the stupidest American university,” she said.

Ms. Coulter remarked on the reception she has had since entering the country.

“Since I’ve arrived in Canada, I’ve been denounced on the floor of Parliament — which, by the way, is on my bucket list — my posters have been banned, I’ve been accused of committing a crime in a speech that I have not yet given, I was banned by the student council, so welcome to Canada!”

The “accusation” of which Ms. Coulter speaks is a reference to an email she received from University of Ottawa vice-president and provost Francois Houle on Friday, warning her that freedom of speech is defined differently in Canada than in the U.S. and that she should take care not to step over the line.

Ms. Coulter said that letter set the tone for and encouraged the protesters. She said it’s well known on the campus speaking circuit that conservatives need to travel with security staff, as she did.

Lefties have showed their intolerance, and out right hate of anything or anybody Conservative. They operate on the shut free speech down rule. I know this from my own blog. They attack you, and if you don't post their comments they call you all kinds of vile names. Progressives, more like cavemen.

Dr Roy has the whole interview with Ann and Coren!

Lefties, they just don't understand what freedom of speech really means. They think it means only people who agree with their twisted logic should be listened to. Read these rabid twitters:

Hopefully the UofC will show Ann the courtesy she deserves, and keep her safe.

Conservative Light Sends Acorn.....

Scurrying back into the sewers. I don't think anyone is going to be too sad about the end of Acorn, but watch them closely. They are just morphing into a new entity, New York and California have already changed their names, but they are still operating.

ACORN Closing in Wake of Scandal

CHICAGO — The once mighty community activist group ACORN announced Monday it is folding amid falling revenues — six months after video footage emerged showing some of its workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute.

"It's really declining revenue in the face of a series of attacks from partisan operatives and right-wing activist that have taken away our ability to raise the resources we need," ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan said.

Several of its largest affiliates, including ACORN New York and ACORN California, broke away this year and changed their names in a bid to ditch the tarnished image of their parent organization and restore revenue that ran dry in the wake of the video scandal. They will continue to operate under their new names and aren't affected by ACORN's decision to shut down.

ACORN's financial situation and reputation went into free fall within days of the videos' release in September. Congress reacted by yanking ACORN's federal funding, private donors held back cash and scores of ACORN offices closed.

Funny how they accuse "conservative activists" for their demise, and not their own liberal activists who were behaving very badly. Typical lefty logic, they are never at fault.

The problem is that Acorn, the organization will change it's name and continue to operate as usual, just like New York and California have already done.

Sorry America.

Pelosi got you, and Obama is leading you down a path that we Canadians have been on since we were stupid enough to elect Trudeau. It's all about the government taking over your life, and it is not pretty. Socialism is a sickness, it invades your society, and it is just about impossible to reverse.

Some people get it:

Listen to this speech, Boehner gets it right, but too bad it was all for nothing. (For some reason embedding doesn't work at Fox, if anyone can help me with that it would be appreciated).

I can only hope that in November you will make them pay. If you don't you will have to live with it. I cry with you!

To My American Friends, Kill The Bill!

You are in for a world of pain if this health care bill passes. My family knows this from experience.

The last time I saw a doctor was when my 14 year old son was born, the only reason I was lucky enough to get a doctor was because I was in a high risk category. My family doctor retired, and no-one took his place, so I have been without a family doctor for over 16 years. My kids doctor retired, and no-one took his place, so my children have been without a doctor for 6 years. This is government health care, which you are about to get. You do not want it, ever.

Yes, everyone in Canada is covered, but that means that no-one really gets good care. It's not our doctors and nurses fault, it is the socialist philosophy that is at fault.

We have medi-centers, we have long, long wait lists for hip replacements (years), and every other procedure you might need, but it's all "free". Excuse me, it's not "free", the productive workers pay for it, and the unproductive abuse it. You get money deducted from your cheque for health care, and then if you want an upgrade you pay more, but you do not get more.

One of my favorite bloggers has all the information you need. Blue like You.

Once you have government health care, you can never change it because no party will touch it with a ten foot pole. It's like here in Canada where we have NO abortion law, so a woman can get an abortion as the baby is being delivered. It doesn't happen often, but it can, because no political party will touch the issue.

We do not have a two tier system here because politicians and special interest groups yell about only the rich will benefit. Funny how Danny Williams, a premier (Governor to you) went to the US to get treatment for his heart. Why? Your system is superior to ours, but even Williams won't admit it, yet he used it.

Think about our system. All doctors fight for time in our hospitals for surgery. This creates huge wait times. If the same doctor could perform surgeries in his office, our wait times would disappear. Right now, a doctor might get two hours a week in surgery. If they could have their own surgery units, that same doctor could have 30 hours in surgery, and our wait times would be decreased. Unfortunately, our politicians will never change this because our lefties/MSM would scream and shout so loud, no-one would support it.

So, I hope that your health care bill will not pass, you need to go back to the drawing board, this bill is downloading the cost of health care to your states. Our provinces are spending close to 50% on health care alone, and they are still crying for more money. It's an endless black hole of spending.

Lefties Blowing A Gasket! Too Funny!

It seems that the tolerant, progressive left are not so tolerant when it comes to Conservatives. Who knew?

Ann Coulter visit sets off furor

Local activist and one-time NDP candidate Megan Walker says of Coulter, "She's venomous . . . She crosses the line and promotes hatred and violence."

Walker's comments provoked a response from a woman instrumental in bringing Coulter to London, Mary Lou Ambrogio, whose group, the International Free Press Society, is paying $10,000 for the appearance, the balance of Coulter's fee coming from an American group that promotes conservatism in young women, the Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

Coulter couldn't be reached by phone. In a brief e-mail, Coulter offered to comment, but hadn't done so by Friday.

Ambrogio said Coulter was chosen to test the tolerance of Londoners for free speech, a test she says Walker has flunked.

"She pays lip service to free speech," Ambrogio said.

Talk about venomous, thy name is Walker. She is so tolerant, I bet she supports the bash Israel week, but Coulter is the problem? Maybe Walker should look in the mirror.

Lefties, they only believe in free speech for themselves!

Thanks to one of my many FNF contributors, I found this father and son pair who made it to the finals. Unfortunately the original River Dance performance has been disabled for embedding for some reason, but you can still watch it on Youtube.


After closing time at the bar, a drunk was proudly showing off
his new apartment to a couple of his friends. He led the way
to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong and a mallet.

'What's up with the big brass gong?' one of the guests asked.

'It's not a gong. It's a talking clock,' the drunk replied.

'A talking clock? Seriously?' asked his astonished friend.

'Yup,' replied the drunk.

'How's it work?' the friend asked, squinting at it.

'Watch,' the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an ear-shattering pound and stepped back. .

The three stood looking at one another for a moment......

Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, 'You a$$hole! It's three-fifteen in the morning!
Our planet is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing creatures. Here are three from the Bat Family .....

Sucker-footed Bat

Red-Winged Fruit Bat

Left-Winged Ding Bat

The pride of California
Starts with F and ends with K

A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, 'Harry, what's your problem?'

Harry answered, 'I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!'

Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal: 'What is 3 x 3?'

Harry: '9.'
Principal: 'What is 6 x 6?'

Harry: '36.'

And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, 'I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade.'
Ms. Brooks says to the principal, 'Let me ask him some questions.'

The principal and Harry both agreed.

Ms. Brooks asks, 'What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?'

Harry, after a moment: 'Legs.'

Ms Brooks: 'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?'

The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!

Harry replied: 'Pockets.'

Ms. Brooks: 'What does a dog do and that a man steps into?'

Harry: 'Pants.'

Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, &delicious?'

Harry: 'Coconut.'

The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.

Ms. Brooks: 'What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?'
The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, 'Bubble gum.'

Ms. Brooks: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?'

Harry: 'Shake hands.'

The principal was trembling.

Ms. Brooks: 'What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?'

Harry: 'Firetruck.'

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher,'Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong !

Subject: To pee or not to pee

Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes & the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem).

What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

So, here is my question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their BUTT----doing drugs while I work.

Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could call the program "URINE OR YOU'RE OUT"!

Your stupid time consuming game of the week is Amazing Mind Reader. Funny when I concentrated, it was right, when I didn't even look at the symbol, it got it wrong. Whatever, it's still freaky!

Cheating Is Not Cool, It's Destructive!

It used to be when you said "I do", it meant something. It was a commitment. It was tell death do us part. It was a stable platform to build your family on, and part of the way to build a solid community. Marriage is becoming a joke, a quick legal romp with someone you are attracted to, and then when the attraction dies, you take the easy way out and quit the marriage, children or not.

This picture particularly bothered me. How can he look at her so lovingly when he has been having an affair behind her back? What gut wrenching feelings Sandra must have felt, learning from her agent, that her husband had been cheating on her. If my husband ever did that, I would be sick to my stomach. I hope she leaves him, for good.

What a jerk! I guess he was just "doing a Tiger". Boys, keep your pants zipped once you are married. Mel Gibson is another one that has disappointed me.

It's not only the guys who are at issue here, the females who knowingly go after married men are just as despicable. Those women want the publicity and instant fame that they will get by exposing the cheating males. They don't care about the children they are hurting, they are slime. They don't care about destroying a family, destroying our societies very moral fabric. But it takes two to tango, both parties are equally guilty.

I have no respect for Hillary Clinton because she stayed with Bill, and it made her weak. She had a chance to make a forceful statement for women, to show leadership by refusing to put up with being made to look like a fool. She caved. She put her political ambitions before all else.

You don't have to be famous to have a failed marriage, it's just that the eyes of the world are on the famous people. They send a very negative message about marriage. Most people go to work, come home, cook supper and help the kids with their homework. We might not have any glamour in our lives, but we have stability, love and dependability.

No woman should stay in an abusive relationship, and that includes husbands cheating on their wives. Get out while you can Sandra, he's not worth it! If he has done it once, you can bet he will do it again. You will never be able to trust him ever again. Cheating is not cool, it's destructive .

To Burka, Or Not To Burka, That Is The Question!

The burka issue that is bubbling in Quebec is a very interesting debate. Personally, I think as long as the women are not being forced to wear the burka, let them go ahead. I have wondered why they would continue to wear it in Canada. It is definitely an attention getter, and maybe that is why they wear it. In Afghanistan, all women wear the burka, so they do not stand out, but in Canada only a few wear it making them stand out. Funny how converts like the burka/hijab, it's a statement about who they are, it's a kind of preening, a look at me, see how different I am.

This is a good example of culture clash. I wouldn't be caught dead in either outfit. Most of us are in-between. I fully support the right of each woman to wear what they want, but seriously, they both look ridiculous. How many of you would walk into work in either garment?

As Canadians we need to help the women who come from different cultures to adjust. That doesn't mean they have to parade around in bikinis, but it does mean that we stand up against sharia laws being implemented in our country. We need to reach out our hands to women from other cultures, who have been oppressed. We need to let them know that they can remove those veils without fear. We also need to send a very strong message to the oppressors that we will not tolerate any form of sharia law in our country, and that women are equal, in all respects, and at all times.

I wonder why the feminists don't feel the same way?

Quebec Comes Begging To Alberta!

You know I would actually like Quebec, if they stopped talking about separation and started working towards a better Canada. Alberta and Quebec should be natural allies in the fight against the federal government powers, but Quebec keeps attacking Alberta. I imagine that Saskatchewan will be added to their bashing list soon too because they have oil sands as well.

It appears that Quebec speaks out of both sides of their mouths. They condemn Alberta oil sands in one breath at Copenhagen and in the next, they send a big delegation to Alberta looking for lucrative contracts.

But while the Quebec Premier is spewing hot air and smoke about his concern for the environment, his bureaucracy back home is working hard to benefit from the energy sector.

Next week, for instance, the Quebec Ministry of Economic Development, Innovation and Export will organize an economic mission to Edmonton "to seize all the business opportunities" in the "recovery of oil sand development projects in Alberta".

Bureaucrats are also busy in the Quebec Ministry of Finance, preparing their 2010-2011 budget, which includes income of $8.5-billion in transfer payments, much of it from Alberta's oil fields. Similarly, the Caisse de depot et de placement du Quebec, which manages Quebec's pension plans, is also trying to recover from last year's historical loss by investing massively in the petroleum industry. Actually, according to its latest annual report, one quarter of the Caisse's most important stocks are in petroleum companies, including Canadian Natural Ressources Ltd, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, ENI (Agip), Shell, PetroChina and Petroleo Brasileiro. It is, in fact, the most important sector of investment of the Caisse's portfolio.

Funny that, Alberta is bad, until they want our money, then they take it without so much as a thank you.

Chantal Hebert gets that it is a Quebec versus Alberta fight. Too bad she doesn't mention that 10 seats in Quebec means nothing politically anymore. Quebec has lost it's political power, they are not needed for a majority, and they can thank the Bloc for that. Keep voting Bloc separatists, and see your power diminish even more.

This time, the issue is not the Constitution but climate change, and, in a reversal from the Mulroney dynamics, the Harper government is sending clear signals that it is willing to risk its small beachhead in Quebec to preserve its larger Alberta base.

The lengths to which the Conservatives are willing to go to do so were on exhibit Monday when Environment Minister Jim Prentice attacked Quebec's aggressive climate-change approach.

Too bad even columnists like Chantal, who I like, are still trumpeting the bogus climate change horn. So much for the sophisticated Quebec voters. If climate change is such an issue for Quebec, maybe they shouldn't come to Alberta looking for contracts, and maybe they should vote Green next election. Right, I thought not, somehow jobs are more important, right Quebec?

Here's the deal Quebec, you don't buy our oilsands oil, and we won't send you the 8 BILLION in equalization payments, we will call it a fair and square deal!

PEI? HUMMM, Where Have I heard About PEI?

Calling Wayne Easter, you have something else to be outraged about! Now, I know this MP apologized for his behaviour, and everyone let the matter die. But, you have forced me to replay this tape, because you are so intent on attacking Helena even after she has apologized. I also call out the MSM who DID NOT cover this MP's bad behaviour when it happened.

Yes, that is PEI Liberal MP Shawn Murphy calling for the hanging of former PM Mulroney. Not a whisper of this was heard on the MSM.

I guess being a Liberal carries certain privileges that you just don't get as a Conservative. How about that clip on Ruby? Her purse gets stolen, the little kids get beaten, and she hopes they learnt a lesson??? It got no play in the Canadian media. She has gone on to even greater heigths, remember this?

So, having a hissy fit at the airport was bad, it sure didn't make me respect Helena, but let's get real here. The media makes me sick they are so biased. They are the Liberals free advertising machine. We pay one billion a year for the privilege of having CBC crow for the Liberals. What the media fails to understand is that we can record what they fail to report and post it on Youtube. In this day of instant messaging, the MSM is the dinosaur.

I suggest that the Liberals start showing up to vote on bills. When 40% of your MP's fail to show up for a confidence vote on the budget, that should be news, but of course it wasn't. Now Iggy is out stomping in high schools instead of being in the house. How shocking! HA!

Alberta Rocks.....Again!

Okay, I hate to rub it into Ontario's nose, but Alberta won the Brier once again, with a rookie team!

Alberta stuns Ontario in Brier final

HALIFAX – Draw to the pin to win.

With the adrenalin pumping and perhaps your one and only chance to win the Brier on the line, drawing to the button is easier said than done.

But Kevin Koe did it here Sunday night to give Alberta a 6-5 win over Glenn Howard to win the province a third consecutive Tim Hortons Brier.

It came down to the last rock in the eleventh end, but Alberta won. Congrats to the Koe team.

One thing I did notice was all the empty seats throughout the tournament, shame on you Halifax. Even the final game had empty seats, and the crowd was pretty quiet. Maybe they didn't have a Brier Patch, or maybe they did and that is where everyone hung out.

Why isn't CTV covering the paralympics like they did the Olympics? These athletes are even better than the none handicapped athletes. They have so much more drive and ambition, they should be highlighted, instead CTV is ignoring them. Shame on CTV. They are making our paralympic athletes into second class citizens and that should never happen.

Sorry Ontario, maybe next year!

Are The Conservatives, Not Conservative Enough?

Who cares? Right now the Conservatives being in power are keeping our country together. The west is finally being treated like all the other provinces. This is keeping us in the game. Two posts today got me thinking about what has been going on lately. We are letting the Liberal media dictate to us what we should think, and this must stop. '

A recent poll, to be released in full today by the Manning Center for Building Democracy, is generating commentary, if not angst, within the MSM. Apparently Canadians are a lot more "conservative" than we've been led to understand for so many years, make that decades.

I am growing sick and tired of those Conservatives bitching and moaning about Stephen Harper's lack of "fiscal conservatism". Maybe you are upset that there has not been a significant reduction of spending in the past four years and I am fully on board with reducing expenditures, but in a minority government with an opportunistic opposition what is the alternative? Each time you try to reduce spending on anything, the Liberals start screaming about how you are taking services away from Canadians. Neither the NDP nor the Bloc will be a willing dance partner in fiscal conservatism, and thus compromise is the only option.

Different, yet very much the same in thought. I agree with both bloggers. Conservatives need to stop letting the lefty media drive the agenda. Case in point is the fact that the media never called the Liberals out about the 29 MP's that did not vote on the budget. 29 out of 77 didn't show up? Every time one of them stands up in question period, they should be told to sit down because they did not vote and have therefore eliminated all the votes of their constituents. They yapped about prorogation endlessly, but refused to vote when parliament was actually back in action. That is a direct and very serious assault on our democracy, but the media is mute.

I am a Conservative, both fiscal and social, but my priority is fiscal. I would like all provinces to be treated equal, funding should not be based on how many MP's can be delivered. I get a sick feeling every time I hear Quebec bashing the Alberta oilsands, and you hear it every time you listen to the Bloc during question period. I have nothing against Quebec, but why do they think that they are superior to Albertans, while they sell asbestos to third world countries? Many Quebecois tell us that they only vote for the Bloc because it is a protest vote, but they really don't want to separate from Canada, well that is not the message that they are sending the rest of Canada. We are getting immune to their demands.

I would like to see more Conservative policies, but with a minority I am impressed with how much has actually been accomplished. I support PM Harper. He is doing an excellent job despite a very negative media and some stupid ministers. Don't expect the biased media to ever give him a fair shake. How do we combat the media and special interest groups? Defund them. Stop the subsidies, get the government out of funding special interest groups and the CBC.

Are the Conservatives not Conservative enough? Only to the lefties who want to make us into rednecked, gun toting, bible thumping, illiterate, prairie cave dwellers. Yet they depend on oil and gas for their livelihoods. Shut down the oil for just one week, see what happens. It wouldn't be pretty but it might get the point across.

Friday Night Funnies: Irish DUI Test

You know you have had enough of winter when you see this:

Patton staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Kathleen.

He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

Managing not to yell, Patton sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood.

He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.

In the morning, Patton woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt and Kathleen staring at him from across the room.

She said, 'You were drunk again last night weren't you?'

Patton said, 'Why you say such a mean thing?'

'Well,' Kathleen said, 'it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly ....... it's all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.

An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut . The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

He says, 'Sir, have you been drinking?'

'Just water,' says the priest.

The trooper says, 'Then why do I smell wine?'

The priest looks at the bottle and says, 'Good Lord! He's done it again!'
Paddy was in New York .

He was patiently waiting and watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing. The cop stopped the flow of traffic and shouted, 'Okay, pedestrians.' Then he'd allow the traffic to pass.

He'd done this several times, and Paddy still stood on the sidewalk.

After the cop had shouted, 'Pedestrians!' for the tenth time, Paddy went over to him and said, 'Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?'
Beware of identity theft this Easter:

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.

Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, 'Kemo Sabe, look
Towards sky, what you see? '

'The Lone Ranger replies, 'I see millions of stars.'

'What that tell you?' asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, 'Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What's it tell you, Tonto?'

'You dumber than buffalo sh%t. It tell me someone stole the tent.'
Senior Citizens Bus Trip
A senior citizens' group charters a bus from Burlington, IA, to Branson, MO. As they entered Missouri, an elderly woman comes up to the driver and says, "I've just been molested!" The driver felt that she had fallen asleep and had a dream.. So he tells her to go back to her seat, and sit down.
A short time later, another old woman comes forward, and claims that she was just molested. The driver thought he had a bus load of old wackos, but who would be molesting those old ladies?
About 10 minutes later, a third old lady comes up and says that she'd been molested too.
The bus driver decides that he'd had enough, and pulls into the first rest area. When he turns the lights on and stands up, he sees an old man on his hands and knees crawling in the aisles.
"Hey gramps, what are you doing down there?" says the bus driver.
"I lost my toupee. I thought I found it three times, but every time I try to grab it..., it runs away...!!"

A US first grade teacher explains to her class that she is an American. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are American too.
Not really knowing why but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like flashy fireworks. There is, however, one exception. A girl named Kristen has not gone along with the crowd.
The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different. "Because I am not an American."
"Then", asks the teacher, "What are you?".
"I'm a proud Canadian," boasts the little girl.
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Kristen why she is a Canadian.
"Well, my mom and dad are Canadians, so I'm a Canadian too.
"The teacher is now really angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a crappy hockey player, and your dad was a crappy hockey player? Would that mean that you're a crappy hockey player too?"
A pause, and a smile. Then, says Kristen, "Nope! That'd mean I'm an American!"


The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office.

The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.

The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable.'

I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration?'

The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'

Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.'

The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.

Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.'

Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.

The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk.

The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.

But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.

'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.

'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and piss all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'

Don't Mess with Old People!!

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.
I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head;
he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the
hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.
The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.
This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar: 'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'
The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar:
'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 - he's trying to catch up on his sleep.
Can I come with him tomorrow?'
Punk Princess Show, what girls find entertaining, your REALLY mindless game for the week.
(I refuse to be dragged into any discussion of this what so ever! Okay, the music is very irritating. HA!)

Have a great weekend!

CO2 = Air Fertilization!! I Love That Term!

One of these things isn't like the others, can you spot which one? I can spot which one it is, too bad environmentalists can't spot the three true pollutants.


Quebec urged to end asbestos exports

'Virtually all Quebec's asbestos is exported to developing countries, where protections are few and awareness of hazards are non-existent,'— Letter from international group of scientists to Premier Jean Charest

These are "real" scientists not your fake econuts. The econuts are silent on this, could it be because Quebec is a socialist province? Bloq MP's are calling for the shut down of Alberta's oilsands, but are strangely silent on their asbestos industry, which we know is dangerous to our health.


CFL Bulbs Have One Hitch: Toxic Mercury

The Environmental Protection Agency and some large business, including Wal-Mart, are aggressively promoting the sale of compact fluorescent light bulbs as a way to save energy and fight global warming. They want Americans to buy many millions of them over the coming years.

But the bulbs contain small amounts of mercury, a neurotoxin, and the companies and federal government haven't come up with effective ways to get Americans to recycle them.

"The problem with the bulbs is that they'll break before they get to the landfill. They'll break in containers, or they'll break in a dumpster or they'll break in the trucks. Workers may be exposed to very high levels of mercury when that happens," says John Skinner, executive director of the Solid Waste Association of North America, the trade group for the people who handle trash and recycling.

Skinner says when bulbs break near homes, they can contaminate the soil.

Mercury is a potent neurotoxin, and it's especially dangerous for children and fetuses. Most exposure to mercury comes from eating fish contaminated with mercury.

This is the same Environmental Protection Agency that has declared CO2 to be a pollutant, but mercury in light bulbs...not a problem! Neurotoxin good, CO2 bad! I remember when they used to call it mercury poisoning, but I guess that's not the case anymore, could it have anything to do with GE??? Just asking...


List of Recalled Toys for Lead Poisoning Hazards – Childrens Toy Recalls from China

Just to give you an idea of how many children’s toys have been recalled due to lead poisoning hazards and/or violations of lead safety standards, we have compiled a list based on all of the recalls announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) so far this year.


Carbon Dioxide (Co2) Enrichment Air Fertilization

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) contributes to plant growth as part of the miracle of nature known as photosynthesis. This enables plants to combine Carbon Dioxide and water with the aid of light energy to form sugar. Some of these sugars are converted into complex compounds that increase dry solid plant substances for continued growth to final maturity. However, when the supply of carbon dioxide is cut off, or reduced, the complex plant cell structure cannot utilize the sun's energy fully and growth or development is curtailed.

Although carbon dioxide is one of three main components which combine to produce the products necessary for plant growth, the amount of carbon dioxide in the air is only 0.03% (250 to 330 parts per million). This compares to 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 0.97% trace gases in normal air. Numerous tests have proven that during the winter months carbon dioxide concentrations inside greenhouses is invariably much lower than in outside air. This same phenomenon has been shown in controlled environment gardens.

Research has shown that in most cases rate of plant growth under otherwise identical growing conditions is directly related to carbon dioxide concentration.

The amount of carbon dioxide a plant requires to grow may vary from plant to plant, but tests show that most plants will stop growing when the CO2 level decreases below 150 ppm. Even at 220 ppm, a slow-down in plant growth is significantly noticeable.

Colorado State University conducted tests with carnations and other flowers in controlled CO2 atmospheres ranging from 200 to 550 ppm. The higher CO2 concentrations significantly increased the rate of formation of dry plant matter, total flower yield and market value.

Yikes!!!!! Plants stop growing at CO2 levels below 150ppm? Plants do better the HIGHER the CO2 concentrations??? This isn't what we have been told, someone has been lying to us, could it be the environmentalists, who love mercury, but not CO2?

What is the current CO2 level?


Atmospheric CO2 for February 2010

Now, I don't like to link to scare sites, but this one is so out there that I'm sure no-one really believes their hype. According to them, we are at 389.91ppm, plants love 550ppm, so, we really need to crank up the CO2 people! Forget about earth hour, we need a CO2 week, where we run our cars, and factories at full 24 hour production to be able to feed more people. Forget carbon sequestration, we need to blast that stuff right into our greenhouses and atmosphere so we can promote food growth! Or as they call it "Air Fertilization"!

One of these things is not like the others, a kid in grade three could figure it out, why can't the climate change money grabbing lobby groups?

Sometimes It's The Small Things....

That makes your heart sing!

For once Air Canada gets something right for it's customers, or because of it's customers demands!

Air Canada flight idled for Olympic hockey fans

VANCOUVER — Travellers the world over know the pains of flight delays - due to fog, weather, late pilots, or just plain busy airports.

But only in Canada would a flight get delayed for a hockey game.

Air Canada president Calin Rovinescu told a Vancouver business gathering that one of his company's scheduled flights sat on the tarmac as passengers finished watching the men's gold medal match between Canada and the U.S. on the final day of the Olympic Games.

He said travellers on the Montreal-bound flight just couldn't be persuaded to board the plane while play continued.

Instead, they watched the heartstopping hockey game being broadcast on airport departure screens.

Passengers on board Air Canada flights around the world during the Canada-U.S. showdown were kept apprised of the score by the flight crew, who were receiving real-time updates from operations control.

The spirit of the Olympics is not dead, even if our politicians keep trying to kill that feeling with nonsense issues. They can't. It has moved into our hearts and sings through our veins and could be unstoppable. Canada today is not the same Canada as before the Olympics. We are a changed country. A better country.

I admit that I have an addiction to the Olympics. I sit on the edge of my chair and cheer for every Canadian who is competing. I live vicariously through them for 17 or 18 days. I try to reach into the water to push our competitors closer to the finish line. I stop breathing while our athletes are racing around the skating oval and I can see they are within a hundredth of a second to winning. I cheer when they win, and I cry when they try so hard, but don't quite make the podium. They become real for me, and for everyone in Canada. They make us proud, they allow us to shout and wave the flag.

They unite the east and the west, and they make us realize what a wonderful country we live in. Remember to cheer on our paralympic athletes with the same enthusiasm we cheered for our able bodied athletes. Think about the extra effort our paralympic athletes have to go through to achieve their goals.

Sometimes it's the small things, like an Air Canada flight delayed because of a hockey game, that makes your heart sing.
