A Slap In The Face!

I really feel that the mosque in New York at ground zero is a slap in the face to all westerners. It is a sad statement about terrorism. The victims are forgotten in the politically correct atmosphere that doesn't allow anyone to criticize Islam without being called a bigot.

I remember the morning of September 11, I hope we all do. Unfortunately, many people seem to prefer to forget that over 3000 totally innocent people lost their lives that day, including many firefighters who were trying to save all those people. I remember the story of the blind person with his seeing eye dog who guided him out to the building. Good puppy!! There were many stories of hero's that day. Without terrorism, we wouldn't need so many heroes!

With the arrests in Canada of terror suspects, it makes me think back to that horrible day, Sept 11.
Does building a mosque fundamentally change a nation? Not usually, but it might this time, as it is a slap in the face to all westerners and especially the over 3000 innocents killed on 9/11.

Friday Night Funnies: Welfare Check

Welfare Check

A guy walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check.

He marched straight up to the counter and said, "Hi.. You know...., I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job."

The social worker behind the counter said, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a Chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes.

"Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say but you will also have as part of your job assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sex drive."

The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, "You're bullshittin' me!"

The social worker said, "Yeah, well ... You started it."
Stanley died in a fire and his body was burned pretty badly.
The morgue needed someone to identify the body, so they sent for his two best friends, Cooter and Gomer.
The three men had always done everything together.
Cooter arrived first, and when the mortician pulled back the sheet, Cooter said, 'Yup, his face is burned up pretty bad. You better roll him over.'
The mortician rolled him over and Cooter said, 'Nope, ain't Stanley '
The mortician thought this was rather strange.
So he brought Gomer in to confirm the identity of the body.
Gomer looked at the body and said, 'Yup, he's pretty well burnt up.

Roll him over..'
The mortician rolled him over and Gomer said, 'No, it ain't Stanley 'The mortician asked, 'How can you tell?'
Gomer said, 'Well, Stanley had two assholes.'
'What? He had two assholes?' asked the mortician.
'Yup, we never seen 'em, but everybody used to say:

'There's Stanley with them two assholes.'

You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to
be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God..'

You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing
the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if: You still say ' Christmas'
instead of 'Winter Festival.'

You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when
someone prays.

You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your
hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem

You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces
veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an
American flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe
and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and
raised your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to
a friend.

( just want everyone to know that a "redneck" is a farmer, providing all of us with food on our table, without them, we are eating dirt pies. So slam "redneck's" all you want but remember who feeds you!)
Last Tuesday President Obama got off the helicopter in front of
The White House - carrying a baby piglet under each arm.
The squared-away Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said:

"Nice pigs, sir."

The President replied: "These are not pigs. These are
authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton, and I got one for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi."

The squared-away Marine again snapped to attention, salutes and said,

"Excellent trade, sir."
Three strangers strike up a conversation in the passenger lounge in the Bozeman, Montana airport, while waiting for their respective flights..

One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer, another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Montana StateUniversity from the Middle East..
Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table, tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face, and lights a cigarette. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, 'At one time here... my people were many... but sadly, now we are few.'

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, 'Once my people were few,' he sneers, 'and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?'

The cowboy removes his cigarette from his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a smooth drawl . . .

'I reckon that's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's a-comin'.'
Greyhounds might be the fastest dogs on the planet, but they are also the champion couch potatoes!
At the end of the tax year, the Tax Office sent an inspector to audit
the books of a local hospital. While the Tax Office agent was checking the
books he turned to the CEO of the hospital and said, "I notice you buy
a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when
there's too little left to be of any use?"

"Good question," noted the CEO. "We save them up and send them back to
the bandage company and every now and then they send us a free box of

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual
question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way

"What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's
left over after setting a cast on a patient?"

"Ah, yes," replied the CEO, realising that the inspector was trying to
trap him with an unanswerable question . "We save it and send it back
to the manufacturer, and every now and then they send us a free
package of plaster."

"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster
the know-it-all CEO. "Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the
leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?"

"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CEO. "What we do is save
all the little foreskins and send them to the Tax Office, and about
once a year they send us a complete prick."
Dentist with a good sense of humour..

The other day, a gentleman went to the Dentist's office to have a tooth pulled. The Dentist pulls out a freezing needle to give him a shot.

"No way"! No needles! "I hate needles", the man said.

The Dentist starts to hook up the laughing gas and the man immediately objected.

"I can't do the gas thing either; the thought of having the gas mask on is suffocating me"!

The Dentist then asks the gentleman if he has any objection to taking a pill.

"No objection", the man said. "I'm fine with pills".

The Dentist then returns and says, "Here's a Viagra tablet".

The gentleman, totally at a loss for words, said in amazement, "WOW"! "I didn't know Viagra worked as a pain killer"!

"It doesn't", said the Dentist, "but it will give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth"
Two Large Plastic Trash Bags

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic trash bags behind her.
One of the bags rips, and every once in a while a $20 bill falls out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stops her, and says, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of your bag."

"Oh, really? Darn!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back, and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me."

"Well, now, not so fast," says the cop. "How did you get all that money? "You didn't steal it, did you?"

"Oh, no", said the little old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot.
On game days, a lot of fans come and pee through the fence into my flower garden. So, I stand behind the
fence with my hedge clippers. Each time some guy sticks his tallywacker through the fence, I say, '$20 or
off it comes'.

"Well, that seems only fair" laughs the cop. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"

"Well, you know", "not everybody pays".
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.
'It sure is,' I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?
Have great weekend!

CTV Mocks PM Harper.

Everyone thinks CBC is biased, but CTV is by far more disgusting in their coverage of our PM.

Compare and contrast these two videos:

CTV mocks the PM for dancing.

Now watch the real video, without editorial comment:

David Akin supplies the real video.

Can you see the difference? CTV mocks the PM, the laughing and giggling is really juvenile. The video is stupid and defines how immature CTV really is, but I'm sure lefties loved it. The video supplied by David Akin shows the real truth. No editing, just the raw footage. Good for David, he is a real reporter, whether he supports the PM or not, he gave an unbiased report.

CTV showed their Liberal bias with their coverage of our PM. Yes, OUR PM!!!! That has not gotten through to the medias thick heads. PM Harper really is what people want. He really is the Prime Minister of Canada! That dance just won him the north!

Funny how Jean eating a raw seal heart was showing support for our northern people, but PM Harper dancing with them wasn't. Can you see the hypocrisy of the left? Can you smell their desperation? It is stinking up our country and I'm not sure that we have enough brooms to rid ourselves of the riffraff!

CTV can mock our PM as much as they want,..... for now, but SunTV will give us a different more honest prospective. I can't wait!!

Mockery is the lowest form of intellectual pursuit. I guess CTV caters to the lefty bottom feeders and Liberal elite....or are they the same?

PM Harper scored a huge hit with our northern people, and CTV didn't like it, not one little bit. So, they had to mock it. Such babies lacking in any intellectual skills. Good for PM Harper, it has the lefties in a tizzy!

Where Are The Parents?

I spent all day getting my boys registered for school. Most kids had their parents with them, even though they were in grade 12. My grade twelve kid liked having me with him, but my grade nine kid didn't want me to stand in line with him until it was time to pay his fees. The point is that I was with them whether they wanted me to be or not. They know I care. They know I am interested in what they are doing, and who they are doing it with.

RCMP dismantle alleged terror cell in OttawaOTTAWA — The RCMP dismantled an alleged Ottawa terrorist cell with suspected links to al-Qaeda Wednesday morning, making two arrests and saying more are expected.

The men are suspected of preparing a terrorist attack targeting Canada. The ringleader allegedly attended training camps in the Pakistan and Afghanistan region.


In a speech in Toronto on Aug. 9, when he would have already been briefed on the suspected Ottawa group, Minister Toews said he was increasingly concerned about the radicalization taking place in Canada.

“There are homegrown Islamists and other extremists here in Canada,” he said. “In this country, it is the right of all Canadians to hold and discuss a wide range of beliefs.

“But what we are seeing here is not about disagreement and debate. Our concern is with extremist ideologies that lead individuals to espouse or engage in violence. These individuals reject the values on which our country is based, and they must be stopped.”

Do the parents take these kids to a mosque with a radical Imam? Do they encourage them towards radical ideologies? I don't know. I do know that parents need to monitor their children, Muslim or not.

KUDOS to our police, please continue to make sure Canada is safe. Stop those terrorists before they damage our soil. Terrorists need to understand that our military and police are the best in the world, and they have proved it by keeping Canadians safe.

I've Been Stripping Most Of The Summer!

Seeing as nothing much is happening on the political scene, except Wayne Easter from PEI making a fool of himself again, I thought you might be interested in my new hobby..... stripping! HA!

I started with one small project, and it has expanded from there.

I forgot to get a before picture of my first attempt (above), but I have some of my next attempt.

A $10 garage sale find, that got transformed into this:

I did take some time off of from stripping to take in the new Jurassic Forest, it's worth every penny they charge, ($13 for adults, and $10 for teens) all the dinosaurs are animated and life sized.

I can't strip tomorrow because it is school registration for my boys, that's $420.00 and doesn't even include supplies. Ouch. So much for "free" schooling.

My current stripping project is my kitchen cabinets, they are beautiful oak cabinets that needed refinishing, I am hoping to get it done by Christmas, as I don't want to be stripping when my parents come for the holidays.

I am keeping the oak doors natural, and I'm thinking of painting the the rest of the cabinets a green to match my plants (You can see the samples in the picture below). On top of new hinges and handles it appears we need new appliances and a new counter top, but I hate the new fad for everything stainless steel and granite, both are so cold, and won't go well with my old fashioned oak cabinets. Any ideas would be appreciated.

You can see by the finished doors (hours of sanding with my new orbital (birthday present) and mouse sanders) that I want to get rid of the old dark manufactured cabinet look and lighten up the kitchen. I also want a gas stove with 5 burners, but that will have to wait, probably for years. Sigh!

If you don't hear from me everyday, it's because I'm out in my garage..... stripping!

No Vision, "I Know Best" Politicians

Politicians have a habit of getting into office and then forgetting that it is the voters who got them the job. A great example is going on right now in Edmonton. We have a wonderful city center airport about 5 minutes from downtown, and our mayor wants to close it and put up condos. Did I mention our mayor is a real estate developer? Our international airport is 45 minutes outside of the city, because another mayor's family owned the land.

We have already voted once to keep the airport open, and now the mayor is trying to get around that vote and just close it down without our having any say about it. One of the main things that concerns me is that our Stars Air Ambulance lands there, and they would not be able to anymore. That would mean 45 minute ambulance rides from the international airport, leaving only 15 minutes of the golden hour to save someone. The people in the University area already shutdown Stars from landing anywhere near the hospital, bunch of NIMBY's!

It also shows the lack of thinking about the future that seems to impact local politicians. Edmonton is going to keep growing, and as the north develops, we will need more flights into the city. No vision, "I know best" politicians cost us taxpayers more in the long run. We needed an overpass at 34th ave. for years, but no politician wanted to spend the money on their watch, it's now being built for millions more than it would have cost 10 years ago. No vision.

Thankfully, a group has been working to get enough signatures to force another plebiscite about the airport. This time the politicians better listen to us. They think nothing of spending our money on the Indy race, but they want to shut down a profitable airport. Typical.

Has Being The Government Gone To Their Heads?

Even with Iggy and the Liberals tanking, the Conservatives are not getting any traction with the electorate. Why?

In my opinion, the Conservatives have forgotten to be Conservative. I understand that they had to move to the center to gain more votes, but in doing so, they have become mushy. We know the Liberals have no principals and cater to special interest groups, while the NDP cater to the far left, and the Bloc cater to only Quebec socialists, but what about the Conservatives? Sure they are attractive to the right because they are the only party that we can vote for, but unless they come out with a strong Conservative plan next election, I don't see them getting a majority.

They are so scared of losing power that they are pleasing no-one. My own MP is so scared of doing anything wrong, hoping to get a Minister's position that my blog is a threat! HA! Now that they have the power, they are forgetting what got them there. Conservatives.

I want to see some action on crime, the gun registry, and the wheat board, for starters. Most important, I want to see the human rights commissions put out to pasture. I want this for Alberta as well as the federal HRC. The Conservatives have no balls on this matter, they were really happy when Liberal MP Keith Martin brought forward a bill against the HRC, so they wouldn't have to, how cowardly.

Refugees are another issue they need to address. If 70% of the people claiming refugee status return "home", they should not be allowed back into Canada. Period. Full Stop!

I feel that the Conservative party is relying too much on PM Harper's performance and has forgotten that it is us "peons" who make the party what it is, and we need more Conservative initiatives or we might just stay home on election night.

The last election campaign was pathetic, it left me wondering why I should vote Conservative, it had no substance, no goals, no definable direction. Wonder why the Conservatives seem to have no traction? They are becoming liberal lite. They need a good smack so they wake up and understand what Conservative really means.

Has Iggy Lost The Catholic Vote?

Usually Catholics vote Liberal, I'm not sure why, but they do. Has that trend changed? I think it has. Door knocking last election, it was clear that the Chinese vote was shifting to the Conservatives, now I think the Catholic vote is also going towards Harper.

Take my Liberal parents for example. They think Trudeau walked on water. So, imagine my surprise when they wanted a plaque from PM Harper to commemorate their 60th wedding anniversary. My Mom didn't want one from the Pope, she doesn't like him (I agree), she didn't want one from Gordon Campbell, but she agreed to one from PM Harper.

My Dad actually said that Dion was better than Iggy. He was a Grand Knight in the Knights of Columbus, so he takes religion seriously. What finally got through to my parents was Iggy calling for abortions to third world nations. They were totally disgusted with his stance. Obviously the attempt by the Liberals to paint PM Harper as anti-abortion has failed badly with Catholics.

I have never seen my parents change so quickly. I usually get a good fight out of my Dad on anything Conservative, but this time I couldn't get him to argue with me. It made for family harmony, but it was boring not being able to disagree on politics with my Dad.

Now, my Uncle was a different story, he wants the 19B over 20 years for air support to go towards child poverty instead. When I turned to him and told him we would always have child poverty because it has become a profitable industry, he was speechless. He supports the NDP, and as such is a pie in the sky idealist.

Overall, BC is looking good for the Conservatives. I can tell you, when my parents think PM Harper is doing a good job, a long time barrier has been broken. They really do not like Iggy and will either vote Conservative, or refuse to vote at all. Polls can not accurately measure the true feeling on the ground.

My parents were also mad about the opposition keeping "tough on crime" legislation from being passed. They want more to be done not less, like not letting the Tamil boat into Canadian territory. The idea of a majority is now a reality, especially in the west.

Friday Night Funnies: I'm Back!!!

Had a wonderful holiday, but now I'm back to bug you, and what better way than Friday night funnies. Enjoy!
A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work. One rainy day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror, she heard her husband's car pull into the driveway.

'Oh my God - Hurry! Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My husband's home early!'

'I can't jump out the window. It's raining out there!'

'If my husband catches us in here, he'll kill us both!' she replied. 'He's got a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your problems!'

So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the window! As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he had run right into the middle of the town's annual marathon, so he started running along beside the others, about 300 of them.

Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in as best he could. After a little while a small group of runners who had been watching him with some curiosity, jogged closer.

Do you always run in the nude?' one asked.

'Oh yes!' he replied, gasping in air. 'It feels so wonderfully free!'

Another runner moved a long side. 'Do you always run carrying your clothes with you under your arm?'

'Oh, yes' our friend answered breathlessly. 'That way I can get dressed right at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!'

Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and asked, 'Do you always wear a condom when you run?'

'Nope..just when it's raining.'
SEX AT 73!

I just took a leaflet out of my mailbox,
Informing me that I can have sex at 73!

I'm sooooo happy, because I live at unit 67...
So it's not far to walk home afterwards!

Is that Hillary? What is she hanging on to?

Answer: His stimulus package.
Sick Leave

I urgently needed a few days off work, but, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave.

I thought that maybe if I acted 'Crazy' then he would tell me to take a few days off.

So I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises.

My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing.

I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss might think I was 'Crazy' and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, 'What in the name of good GOD are you doing?'

I told him I was a light bulb.

He said, 'You are clearly stressed out.' Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.'

I jumped down and walked out of the office...

When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the Boss asked her, '..And where do you think you're going?!'

(You're gonna love this....)

She said, 'I'm going home, too. I can't work in the dark.


Have a great weekend....I saw a leaf fall today, I'm not ready for autumn yet!
