A 60th Wedding Anniversary.

My parents are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this weekend, so we are off to Kelowna, for some sun, golf and great food.

Of course my sister phoned me yesterday in a panic about us giving a speech, so I was up until 4 o`clock going through 4 hours of old videos and putting the best parts into movie maker for a video presentation. This COULD have been done months ago, but no one thought of it. I had the perogies made over a month ago, it`s called planning, something my sister is really, really bad at, but I love her anyways.

Back next week sometimes, I hear Kelowna will be in the 30`s, given the rain and bad weather we have been having, I am looking forward to it.

We Want Fresh Blood!

I voted for Ted Morton, but all the lefties who signed up for PC memberships wanted Dinning, because of the lefties interfering in a PC leadership vote, we ended up with Red Ed.

Even if Red Ed was to retire tomorrow and Ted Morton was made Premier, I would not change my vote. PC's are red liberals. They are done. It's time for new blood. Morton had his chance to lead a new Conservative party, but he chose to stay with a dead party walking. It's too late for him to become the saviour of the PC's.

Kevin Libin: Can Ted Morton be a Wildrose killer?

“Ted is about the only item on the chessboard that would have a chance of reminding defected Tories who are now supporting Danielle, that all is not lost.” Yet, he says, “it certainly hasn’t worked as well as they hoped.”

It may be that Mr. Morton has become a conflicted character. His muscular conservatism has always been his appeal. But in Mr. Stelmach’s Cabinet, he may be suppressing it: His once proudly brandished beliefs in reducing the size of the public sector, linking teachers’ raises strictly to performance, and that the Alberta’s Heritage Savings Trust Fund, represents “eighteenth century economics,” have been quieted. He defended the latest Alberta budget and its record-sized deficits as “the right balance between spending too much and spending too little.”

Sorry, but you only get one kick at the cat, and by sticking with the PC's, Morton has lost my vote.

I don't know if the Wildrose guys/gals will be better, but I hope they will actually be Conservative. That is why I will switch my vote if they run a candidate in my area. The PC's are old and tired, they need to be replaced, and Wildrose is the only option for Alberta.

Morton is like any other politician, he wants power. Red Ed should retire, but he is not smart enough to understand he is hurting Alberta. It is going to be a massive turnaround next election. We want fresh blood!

We need it now! The PC's are stale. It's time for the big shift. Anyone who is thinking about running in Alberta, should think Wildrose, because that is the future of Alberta.

Friday Night Funnies: Seeing Eye Dog!

A modern day cowboy has spent many days crossing the Saskatchewan prairies
without water.

His horse has already died of thirst.
He's crawling along the dusty ground, certain that he has breathed his last
breath, when all of a sudden he sees an object sticking out of the ground
several yards ahead of him.

He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the ground and discovers what
looks to be an old briefcase.

He opens it and out pops a genie. But this is no ordinary genie.

She is wearing a Revenue Canada ID badge and a dull grey dress.

There's a calculator in her pocketbook. She has a pencil tucked behind one
ear. 'Well, cowboy,' says the genie..You know how I work....You have
three wishes.'

'I'm not falling for this.' said the cowboy... 'I'm not going to trust a
Revenue Canada genie.'

'What do you have to lose? You've got no transportation and it looks like
you're a goner anyway!'
The cowboy thinks about this for a minute and decides that the genie is right.
'OK!, I wish I were along-side a lush spring with plenty of food and drink.'


The cowboy finds himself beside the most beautiful spring he has ever seen
And he is surrounded with jugs of wine and platters of delicacies.

'OK, cowpoke, what's your second wish.'

'My second wish is that I was rich beyond my wildest dreams.'

** *POOF***

The cowboy finds himself surrounded by treasure chests filled with rare
gold coins and precious gems.

'OK, cowpuncher, you have just one more wish. Better make it a good one!'

After thinking for a few minutes, the cowboy says... 'I wish that no
matter where I go, beautiful women will want and need me.'


He was turned into a tampon.

Moral of the story:

If the government offers to help you, there's going to be a string attached.

Two women were out for a Saturday stroll with their dogs. One had a

Doberman and the other, a Chihuahua . As they walked down the street,

the one with the Doberman said to her friend, "Let's go over to that

bar for a drink."

The lady with the Chihuahua said, "We can't go in there. We've got the

dogs with us."

The one with the Doberman said, "Just watch, and do as I do."

They walked over to the bar and the one with the Doberman put on a

pair of dark glasses and started to walk in... The bouncer at the door

said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."

The woman with the Doberman said, "You don't understand. This is my

seeing-eye dog."

The bouncer said, "A Doberman?"

The woman said, "Yes, they're using them now. They're very good."

The bouncer said, "OK, come on in."

The lady with the Chihuahua thought that convincing him that a

Chihuahua was a seeing-eye dog may be a bit more difficult, but

thought, "What the heck," so she put on her dark glasses and started

to walk in. Once again the bouncer said, "Sorry, lady, no pets


The woman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog."

The bouncer said, "A Chihuahua ?"

The woman said indignantly, "A Chihuahua ? They gave me a f******g

Chihuahua ???????"
Did you know ...,

.. that the words "race car" spelled backward still spells "race car"

.. that "eat" is the only word that, if you take the 1st letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense "ate"

And, have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in "illegal immigrants" and add just a few more letters, it spells: "Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, violent, non-English-speaking assholes and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-loving, raggedy-ass b$stards with you."

How weird is that?

Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation.

They were determined to make this a real vacation
by not wearing anything that would identify them
as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed
for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts,
shirts, sandals, sunglasses, etc.

The next morning they went to the beach
dressed in their 'tourist' garb.
They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a
'drop dead gorgeous' blonde in a topless bikini
came walking straight towards them..
They couldn't help but stare.

As the blonde passed them she smiled and said
'Good Morning, Father ~ Good Morning, Father,'
nodding and addressing each of them individually,
then she passed on by. They were both stunned.
How in the world did she know they were priests?
So the next day, they went back to the store
and bought even more outrageous outfits.

These were so loud you could hear them before you even saw them! Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine. After a little while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a different colored topless bikini, taking her sweet time, came walking toward them. Again she nodded at each of them, said

'Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,'
and started to walk away. One of the priests couldn't stand it any longer and said, 'Just a minute, young lady.' 'Yes, Father?'
'We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world do you know we are priests, dressed as we are?' She replied,

'Father, it's me, Sister Kathleen.
Hope this wasn't you last night:

Enjoy your weekend!

Horses Versus Daughters

I love rodeos, especially the bull riding, where the bulls usually beat up badly on the cowboys. Unfortunately sometimes, especially with the chuck wagon races, horses get hurt or die.

When that happens, all the PETA people crawl out of the woodwork, and a great cry goes up against the rodeo. Do they not understand that horses love to run? That the bulls usually kick the cowboys butts? That these animals are cared for and loved?

"I'm not a fan. I never have been," said Anderson, who grew up in British Columbia.

Already, two horses have died from heart attacks at the Stampede, one has been euthanized after a shoulder injury and a fourth broke its back from bucking too hard. A rider was also seriously injured.

It's like a side note that a rider, i.e. a human/person was injured. The animals are more important than the humans.

In other news, a mom kills her daughter and walks away. Apparently, horses are more important than daughters.

Putting a Calgary mom who strangled her promiscuous 14-year-old daughter in jail would smack of vengeance, a judge said Thursday, in handing her probation instead.

Justice Sal LoVecchio placed Aset Magomadova on probation for three years ruling the time behind bars sought by the prosecution wasn’t needed.

“The Crown says due to the nature of the act, namely a ligature strangulation and the necessity to address deterrence and denunciation a period of incarceration is necessary to preserve respect for the law,” LoVecchio noted.

“I do not agree,” the Court of Queen’s Bench judge said.

“Deterrence and denunciation may also be addressed without a period of incarceration,” LoVecchio said, in agreeing with defence lawyer Alain Hepner prison wasn’t warranted.

So, an immigrant:

Magomadova sat in the prisoner’s box wiping away tears as a Chechen interpreter translated LoVecchio’s words.
Who can't even speak English, kills her daughter and gets three years probation. This opens the door for every other honour killing. This Liberal judge should be called before a human rights tribunal (isn't that their purpose) to explain how a murder is okay because the person had a hard life in some other country. I am totally disgusted with this ruling. She should be deported back to where ever she came from, she does not deserve to be considered a Canadian.

Liberal judges, ensuring a Conservative majority!

25 Years Married, Yesterday. Yikes!

Really? 25 years married to the same guy? I got my oldest boy to go dig out the wedding album. His first comment was, "Wow, I didn't realize you had colour back then", this sent me into a fit of laughter that had him looking at me like I had lost it, and the old folks home was not far off.

No marriage is without it's bumps, but we have worked them out, and our relationship is stronger than when we were all starry eyed and hot to trot. Commitment to each other, and to our marriage has allowed us to grow as a couple and most importantly, has given our boys a stable family life so that they can thrive.

We are starting to think about when the boys leave home, and it will just be the two of us again. Hubby is from PEI and it calls him back all the time. His anniversary gift to me , was a wonderful picture of PEI, you can almost smell the ocean and hear the sea gulls.

I love the island and the people. One of my favorite places is French River. The colours are stunning, as an Alberta born girl, I have a certain fascination with the ocean, especially the shellfish.

What did I get my hubby? An antique "Billy the Kid" pocket knife, that is just too cool. He is very hard to get anything for, because he just goes and buys anything he needs. I also got him a WWII medal and a silver coin.

No big party, just beef stroganoff and caesar salad for supper. I am busy learning how to restore antique furniture, I am trying my hand on a $15 garage sale find. Anyone know what kind of wood this is??

Oh well, have power sander, will grind away! Marriage is a lot like that, keep polishing until you reach the point that you want to apply the sealant. Very rewarding when you work together.

There Is No Honour In Murder!

Honour killings, where's the honour? Who's honour? Some 7th century immigrant male who thinks he is superior to any female? It is disgusting. It does not belong in Canada. You will all nod your heads in agreement, but many will fail to understand the deep fear women live with everyday.

I had the chance to talk with a beautiful young woman from Afghanistan. I mentioned sharia law and her eyes went wide with fear, she stood up and in a very soft voice stated that she hoped we would never have sharia in Canada. I could see her shivering with just the thought that Canada would allow sharia. She was lucky that when her parents immigrated they did it for all the right reasons, and one of those was to escape sharia laws. She is being allowed to integrate into Canadian culture, and understands that females are equal here. She went back to visit her grandma in Afghanistan and when I asked her if she would go back there to help her people, she shook her head no. She liked Canada because it was safe.

I know that males do not understand this issue. My own MP does not understand the fear that women live with because of Islam. In my last discussion with him, he was mad at me because of this blog post:
When a demographic becomes too overwhelming, will it mean changes forced on the minority, like sharia law? Females should be very scared of that happening. Feminists, who trumpeted womens rights should be worried about our female Muslims who are suffering from discrimination and a lack of education. They are considered slaves by Islam, only good for breeding. Well we all know that feminists don't like breeders, so maybe that is why they do so little to defend Muslim women.
He was listening to a Liberal board member, hiding herself as a Conservative (they do that a lot in Alberta, poor things, that's how we got stuck with Stelmach), who complained about my blog, who either spent hours going through every blog post I had ever made to discredit me, or I suspect listened to her Liberal/NDP friend Gayle (who has been suspiciously absent from my blog ever since...guilt???? HA, as if Liberals knew what that was.).

To his credit, my MP doesn't support sharia law, but he also doesn't appear have a clue about how strongly women really feel about the suppression of their rights because of sharia. Even if it is not legal in Canada, you have to suspect it is being practiced. Honour killings are a huge hint!!! DUH!!

Thankfully Rona is doing something about the issue:


You are right, which is why I did not single out Islam.

It is in the interest of ALL religious organizations, and they were quite good at it up until the last 100 years in this continent... it's still common practice in many parts of the world.

Not enough praise can be given to the real feminists of the early 20th century who proudly stood up and said NO MORE.

You would think the horrid oppression of women in other countries would be the main focus of modern feminists, however Western feminism today has more to do with socialism than actual feminism, the fema-nazi's you see today are concerned with equality in outcome rather than equality in opportunity.


6:54 PM on July 12, 2010

Go haunt some other chick who is actually afraid of your Islamic supremacists' drivel. Of course I'm afraid of Islam, as a female I'd be property of men to despose of at will, killed on a whim, denied gender equality and forced to run around dressed in a body bag. What's to like Spioza, I'd rather be dead than forced to convert to the Religion of violence and hate.

Canadian females like SassieLassie have a huge advantage, they don't back down to any male. We have been raised as equal to our brothers, not as fodder for suicide bombs, or slaves to our fathers. Canadian males, including I suspect, my MP, do not understand what Sassy is saying, Islam scares us. It seeks to destroy all the strides we have made to be considered equal, not slaves to males. MP's of all stripes need to stop pandering for votes and start protecting ALL Canadians.

Your Mother Wears Army Boots!

Or, protesters wear black boots like the police so that they can scream conspiracy.

Thugs learn by experience.

A sexual predator happened by our old house one day, he exposed himself to the female tenant in the basement apartment. The police knew who he was, and went to his house to apprehend him. He had run home and changed his shoes because the last time he had been caught, the police could tie him to the assault because of his shoes. So, this sexual criminal learned from experience.

Have protesters learned from experience? Seems like it, and the media is all too happy to go along with them as long as it sells papers, or hurts the government. Let me see, activists wearing black including their shoes went wild in Toronto, and they are not to blame for the police rounding them up and holding them in jail? Get real you idiots. What sickens me is that unions have become so politically active on their members dime. Go ahead and protest, but do not use funds from the government (Pride parade) or union members who are forced to pay union dues.

It's time for the silent majority to become vocal and drown out the special interest groups. You do not have to go to a protest to do it, you can email, and most importantly comment on sites like CTV. Lefties are the kings of protests, it's time for us to stand up to a vocal minority. Don't tread on me sounds about right. I am talking about all those lefty activists who shout about anything and believe in nothing.

Your mother wears army boots used to be an insult by lefties, it is now a sense of pride to all our female troops. As far as the stupid people protesting nothing, except themselves, go volunteer at a soup kitchen, then get back to us.

We have the best country on the earth, let's enjoy it, and have some fun.

For all those in the heat wave:

Dear President Obama:
I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I'm on my way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bilingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flagpoles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico , but, I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from his president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house, put U S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I'll need income tax credits so, although I don't pay Mexican taxes, I'll receive funds from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov't pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot: please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U..S. from Mexico . I am sure that President Calderon won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Thank you so much for your kind help. You da hombre!!!
Have a great weekend, stay cool!

Pride Parade and Mosques

How could gays work so hard to get recognition and then blow it all off by supporting a group that spouts hate? Is it because they have no "cause" to fight for anymore? They can yap about free speech all they want but not on the taxpayers dime. You want a parade? You raise funds and do it on your own, especially if you want to include groups with political agendas. So says the Toronto council.

I found this interesting:

The city’s anti-discrimination policy says that, “groups that accept funding grants” must “protect the right to be free of hate activity based on age, ancestry, citizenship, creed (religion) colour, disability, ethnic origin, family status, gender identity, level of literacy, marital status, place of origin, membership in a union or staff association, political affiliation, race, receipt of public assistance, record of offences, sex, sexual orientation or any other personal characteristics by or within the organization.”

Look at that list, could it get any more ridiculous? What happened to the half ape/half man, why is he excluded from that list? How about we don't discriminate against individuals. Full Stop. Period. The End.

I don't care if you are black, gay, a union worker or a combination of all of the above, it shouldn't make you different or special in any way. Until we look at people as individuals and not some special interest group, no-one will be equal.

I notice the only characteristic listed that is in brackets is (religion), why??? They just made (religion) different from all the other things. That is obvious discrimination. Typical lefties. They knew they had to include (religion) but they didn't like it, so they put it in brackets so we could all understand that it was only put there to be politically correct. Ninnies.

How about they watch this (religion) and see if they know the difference between free speech and hate speech.

I feel sad for the women and girls of Islam, I wonder where the feminists are to help defend them. I know for a fact that our military is trying to protect them because their Canadian Moms taught them that women are special, not cattle.

The pride parade draws out big crowds of people, not in support of their cause but to watch the spectacle they make of themselves. I feel sorry for those people who think it's necessary to walk around with their boobs/dicks drooping, they obviously have no self respect. Being gay is not an excuse for bad behaviour. When you have won everything you want, maybe it is time to thank Canadians for their acceptance, not to shove a radical group in our faces. Tolerance only goes so far.

Forget tolerance, you know that (religion) is being challenged by the lefties, but that's acceptable, because they say so. Let's just get rid of God. He's an old fashioned symbol that only the uneducated cling to.

When a judge last month ruled that a Catholic high school in Montreal could choose its own religious curriculum, in defiance of an order by the Quebec government, he wrote that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms specifically referred to “the supremacy of God” in its preamble. Now, in the ruling’s aftermath, some are wondering whether that language is out of place in a society that has grown increasingly secular.

“From an atheist’s perspective, what happens to those who don’t believe God exists?” asks Justin Trottier, executive director of the Centre for Inquiry Canada in Toronto.

“If God needs to be defended [by a court], then does God need to be defended by those of us who don’t believe in God?”

God does not need to be defended by a court, he's doing just fine. Lefties might be happier and less negative about life if they opened up their hearts to God. That is surely what they are missing in life. Take the time to look at your world, see how perfect it is, and understand that humans are only one of God's creatures. Stop bowing down to Gore, he is not a god, he is a tent preaching traveling salesman.

The Queen Of Canada, Celebrated.

I found the outpouring of respect for our Queen very enjoyable to watch. I wish I was close enough to have lined up to see her. As a matter of fact, I wish my boys could have gone to Ottawa to see, not only her, but our Parliament buildings.

The media couldn't hide her visit, and they also couldn't hide our PM's obvious respect and admiration for the Queen. If Obama had any smarts, he would have made sure to greet her. Oh well, we know he is an empty box, kids love to play in them, but the real goods have already been taken out, and only the shell remains.

I honestly don't know how I will feel if Prince Charles becomes King. He was too weak to prevent his disastrous marriage to Princess Diane, and as a potential King, should never have been fooling around with Camilla, a married woman. He is also bonkers about climate change. The Queen might be smart to skip that whole generation and go for Prince William as the next heir to the throne. Young as he is, he seems really grounded, and he might be able to stop the commonwealth countries from rejecting the monarchy. With Charles as King, I would vote for Canada to break ties with the monarchy. Seriously, the guy is nice, but not King material.

Whatever happens, we are much better for having had the Queen visit us.

How Is The US Doing Under Obama?

Not so good. I was browsing real estate sites today, and it was really very depressing, unless you are an investor.

I set my perimeters for $150000 or less, and headed to Arizona and Texas. I thought I would find a few properties, boy was I shocked!

Lots of short sales and foreclosures. Look at that, you can get a 3000 to 3500 sqft house in San Tan Valley for $140,000! Winter vacation hear I come!

Or how about this Texas house?

What's the price? $149,900...unbelievable!! What really depressed me was that many of the homes were empty, so where have all those people gone? They have walked away from their homes because they can't afford the payments anymore. It reminds me of the Trudeau NEP reign and how people in Alberta did the same thing, just walked away from their homes.

Obama is spending like mad and it is not helping Americans. Until those homes start to sell and small and medium businesses start hiring again, America is going to stagnate. They will become the next Japan. Printing money is not the answer.

If you don't feel too much like a vulture, you might want to think about investing in some US real estate. Our dollar is close to parity, and after looking at properties in Sun City Arizona, my bones feel warmer thinking about winters down there. Why do Canadians retire and still live in coldville? I know I will keep living in Edmonton in the summer, you can't beat our soil for growing veggies but winter in Arizona sounds good right now. What bothers me is that all their yards are rocks, no grass anywhere, but that's a small problem. Time to plan a trip to Arizona, check out some properties in person, thanks to Obama.

Liberal Elites Still Stinking Up Our Canada

Like most Canadians, I never really paid attention to politics until Adscam hit the news. I had always voted Conservative/Reform/Alliance hoping that one day we would get into power. I thought Paul Martin had been a good finance minister and wouldn't have minded too much if he got elected PM. Well he did, and he was awful. He can try to blame Adscam for his failure, but he was obviously lost without his finance bureaucrats to save his butt.

I know all that appears to be history, but recently CSIS has come out stating that foreign countries are influencing our politicians, especially at the provincial and municipal level. Funny, most politicians at that level are lefties. Even Alberta's MLA's are more liberal than conservative, and I suspect that all those Chinese after our oil sands are offering big money to weak politicians.

Is this unheard of? Nope.

Here is a blast from the past that is interesting reading for those who are just getting into the political scene.

Jean Chretien's ties to China have become more indirect, but no less troubling, since his ascendancy to the Prime Minister's Office. During the course of his reign, China's leadership has embraced his son-in-law, Andre Desmarais, and his company, Power Corporation. Andre is the son of Paul Desmarais senior, Director of Power Corporation and a close friend of Jean Chretien. Andre is married to Chretien's daughter France and serves as the President of Power Corporation's Executive Board.


John Rae was the leading strategist for Jean Chretien's election campaign. He was formerly the Executive vice-president of Power Corp. He is the brother of Bob Rae, the former NDP premier of Ontario.

Bob Rae, while Premier of Ontario, appointed Maurice Strong as chairman of Ontario Hydro. The past CEO of Paul Desmarais' Power Corporation, Strong was appointed to the UN as a senior environmental adviser to the UN secretary-general and Chairman of the Earth Council. His area of responsibility was the Kyoto Accord.

Paul Martin, formerly the Finance Minister under the current regime is considered a shoo in for Prime Minister as Jean Chretien exits the scene in February of 2004. Martin was previously on the board of Power Corp and formerly on the board of Connaught Laboratories. Allegations have been made of Connaught's implication in the tainted blood scandal. Martin and a partner purchased Canada Steamship Lines from Paul Desmarais of Power Corp at extremely favorable terms. Martin later bought the partner out. What obligations does Martin owe to Power Corporation interests once he becomes Prime Minister? Martin registered many of his vessels out of the country in third world registries, thus evading Canadian income taxes. Third world crews working in third world conditions crew his third world registry ships. Canadians must question whether the morality of Martin's evading Canadian income taxes while Finance Minister is a matter of concern.

Jean Chretien's daughter France is married to Andre Desmarais, the son of Paul Desmarais, of Power Corporation. Andre is on the board of multinational communications conglomerate Vivendi. He runs Power Corporation. (estimated annual revenues $18-billion)

And we are supposed to believe that the Liberal party of Canada is clean? Can you not still smell the stink of big business influencing the "ruling party of Canada"? Is the smell still clinging to your nose hairs, making you sneeze? Do you not, at the most fundamental level of your being, still cringe when you think of what the Liberals have done to our country? They still think Trudeau is a hero.... that should clue you in. How come CSIS never mentioned this before? Well Sidewinder was shut down, covered up and buried by the Liberals. What, are you shocked that the Liberals would ignore facts?

Money can buy you anything you want, and it appears that the Liberals have always understood that better than any other political party. Do you seriously think that just because the contribution limit for corporations and individuals is just over $1000 that a corporation as powerful as Power Corp isn't lobbying the present government?

Why did Iggy tell PM Harper that his time was up? It appears that Iggy has been listening to the Liberal elites. The political elites are always sniffing out marshmallows. and they thought Iggy was just right. Soft and fluffy, but when put in the barbeque, he turned brown and shriveled up.

Friday Night Funnies: Baa Baa Black Sheep

My neighbour found out that her dog ( a Schnauzer) could hardly hear, so she took it to the veterinarian.
The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog's ears. He cleaned both ears, and the dog could then hear fine. The vet then proceeded to tell the lady that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the chemist and get some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month.

The lady went to the chemist and bought some "Nair" hair remover. At the register, the pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use deodorant for a few days."

The lady said, "I'm not using it under my arms."

The pharmacist said, "If you're using it on your legs, don't shave for a couple of days."

The lady replied, "I'm not using it on my legs either. If you must know, I'm using it on my Schnauzer."

The pharmacist says, "Well stay off your bicycle for about a week."

Childbirth at 65

With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.

'May I see the new baby?' I asked

'Not yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first.'

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?'

'No, not yet,' She said.

After another few minutes had elapsed,

I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?'

'No, not yet,' replied my friend.

Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?'

'WHEN HE CRIES!' she told me.

'WHEN HE CRIES?' I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'

BP's Final Attempt:

Cow, an Ant and an Old Fart

A Cow, an Ant and an Old Fart are debating on who is the greatest of the three of them.

The Cow: I give 50 litres of milk every day and that's why I am the greatest!!

The Ant: I work day and night, summer and winter, I can carry 52 times my own
Weight and that's why I am the greatest!!

Dogs Know

Have you ever heard that a dog 'knows' when an earthquake is about to hit?

Have you ever heard that a dog can 'sense' when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?

Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia , dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?

Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire?

Somehow they always know when they can 'go for a ride' before you even ask. How do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?

I'm a firm believer that animals - and especially cats and dogs - have keen insights into the Truth.

And you can't tell me that dogs can't sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance.

Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn't right... when impending doom is upon us.

They'll always try to warn us!

I don't want to brag or make anybody jealous or anything, but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
Erections and Aging
Two old friends are sitting at the bar drinking when the first one says,
"Ya know, when I was thirty and got an erection, I couldn't bend it, even using both hands.
By the time I was forty, I could bend it about ten degrees, if I tried really hard.
By the time I was fifty, I could bend it about forty five degrees, no problem. I'm gonna be sixty next week, and now I can bend it in half with just one hand."
"So," says the second drunk, "what's your point?"
"Well, I'm just wondering how much stronger I'm gonna get."
T-G-I-F vs. S-H-I-T

A business man got on an elevator.

When he entered, there was a blonde already inside who greeted him with a bright,

He smiled at her and replied,

She looked puzzled and repeated,
"T-G-I-F," more slowly.

He again answered,

The blonde was trying to keep it friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile, and said as sweetly as possibly,

The man smiled back to her and once again,

The exasperated blonde finally decided to explain.

'T-G-I-F' means 'Thank God, It's Friday.' Get it, duuhhh?"

The man answered,
"'S-H-I-T' means 'Sorry, Honey, It's Thursday'-- duuhhh.

Have a great weekend! Hoping to break the 100 mark in golf this season.....not looking good so far. Sigh.

Compare and Contrast: Canada Day and G20 Summit.

What an interesting contrast we have between the protesters at the G20 and the crowds for Canada Day.

The G20 protests cost us a billion dollars to keep the leaders safe. Thankfully no bombs were planted or world leaders were hurt on our soil. What we have are the hurt feelings of protesters who couldn't get a veggie meal in the holding pens. What spoiled little brats with nothing better to do than go and protest....what? We needed huge fences to keep the leaders safe from rioters who burned police cars and smashed windows. Unions used their members dues to protest....what? What were our unions protesting?

Now they are protesting the treatment the protesters received from the police. What wimps, they weren't pepper sprayed, no water cannons, no clubbing like they would have faced in Iran. I have no sympathy for any protesters who were detained for the evening. For those innocent people who were caught up in the round-up, sorry. The protesters created a police state in Toronto because of the bombing of the bank before the G20, they are to blame for all the costs, and we should start making them pay damages.

Then in contrast, we have the Queen visiting Canada and she came to Parliament Hill in a horse drawn carriage, no fences, no protesters (cause they would have been creamed by our vets) very little security. A peaceful day, honouring Canada and our Queen.

I loved watching the Queen and all the people who came together to see her and celebrate Canada Day.

Canada, My Canada!

(Red Green has nothing on my husband and duct tape!)

We shouldn't only celebrate Canada on one day, we should celebrate it everyday! What a wonderful country we live in. I am so lucky to be a 4th generation Canadian raising my boys in a country that everyone in the world wants to live in. The peace and quiet of Canada can not be disrupted by protesters, unions, media and special interest groups. We can not give them the power to destroy one of the oldest democracies in the world. We are a beacon to all people.

Today, we celebrate Canada, the land and the people who make it great. We are the people who make it great, the mainstream Canadian, raising our families, working hard, and respecting others, while expecting our governments to butt out of our lives and leave us alone.

Canada, my Canada is a great and expansive land made up of caring and dynamic individuals, from the potato farmers in PEI to the salmon fishers in BC. Each region is different and diverse, but by standing together we make Canada stronger. The Olympics showed us how powerful we are as a unified country, it allowed us to show our patriotism, we got to jump up and down in excitement about our Canadian athletes and our country. We felt good about ourselves without being arrogant.

I love Canada, I have a deep respect for the land, it provides us with the opportunity to excel at anything we want or desire. It is up to us to protect what we have, and I want to thank our military for making us safe in a world that is increasingly hostile.

I want to welcome the 95% of immigrants who come to Canada and truly make it their home, the other 5% who care nothing for Canada and it's people, can go back to wherever they used to live, you are not part of the fabric of my Canada.

On this Canada Day, let us celebrate who we are as a nation, a people as diverse and vast as our land, but united in wanting a safe place to raise our families.

Watch out for those fireworks though!
