Some Random Madness

As I enjoy my new life as a parent, I have not had much time to write as much as I would like. However over the last month I have collected some quotes, and articles that I find amusing, and would like to comment on.

1.) On this new so called in-fashion trend of the enviornment being the #1 concern for Canadians, which is an entire farce, (I will dedicate an entire blog to this BS) sadly a smiling Jack Layton had this to say about backing a Conservative budget.

Layton says Harper needs to demonstrate some humility and willingness to compromise - after all, he notes, 63 per cent of Canadians voted against the Conservatives in the last election and the NDP has already opposed Tory policy on Afghanistan, the federal budget and a softwood lumber deal with the United States.

- Hmmm you smiling fool, I wonder what the 89% of Canadians who didn't vote for you think about you pulling a power trip like this. Don't you have more important things to do, like protest Israel, wave a Hezbollah flag, or try to put a muzzle on that wife of yours?

2.) I think most polls are entirely useless and serve no purpose at all. However one poll which made me laugh was one done on What party should win the presidency in the States. the polls results are as follows;

The Decima survey this month of more than 1,000 Canadians found that 47 per cent wanted a Democrat to replace Bush in the White House in 2008, compared with just 12 per cent who wanted a Republican. Forty-two per cent didn't offer an opinion.
The Democratic preference in the survey was found in every region of the country. Albertans, along with self-idenfied Conservative voters, preferred a Democratic president replace Bush by a two-to-one margin.
Among possible Democratic nominees, former first lady Hillary Clinton was the most popular choice in the Decima survey, favoured by 31 per cent of respondents.

This poll proves that 42 percent of Canadians have a brain, while 58% are morons. Guess thats why people vote for Liberals or NDP. How the hell can you say one party should win now when first, You don't know the candidates, You don't know the platform, and you don't live in the country. All this shows is that most people get there views from the media (Big Brother). Pretty sad really. Of course Mrs. Clinton is the frontrunner in this poll. Hmmmm Can't control Billy but can control a country....Interesting.

3.) It seems new Liberal Leader Stephane Dion has set out on a quest to see how many blunders he can pull off in one year. I could go on about what a F'n hypocrite this joke is right now but I will save that for my enviornment blog. Firts lets visit this comment.

Liberal Leader Stephane Dion, meeting with his caucus in Quebec City, predicted an election will likely come this year and lamented Canadians have already "lost one year" during Harper's rule. He accused the Tories of resurrecting old Liberal programs and presenting them as their own.
"He is trying to fool the Canadian people and they will not be fooled by him," he said.

LOL, He has to be kidding right? I mean seriously. First of all this is the same party who bragged about balancing the budget on Conservative initiatives like GST, Free-Trade, right. Remember the Red Book and scrapping that crummy tax. One question. Name one policy the Conservatives have taken from the Liberals. If they took all there ideas why do they bash every initiative in the House Of Commons? I recall the Conservatives scrapping black holes like Kyoto, Government run Childcare, and the Kelowna Accord, and adding there own ideas. Stephane, Please think before you speak, or as your phrase it, Je must tink before I teak.

Now another Beauty by Mademoiselle Dion

Dion told a Quebec newspaper that he has no objections to Marc-Yvan Cote, a former key party organizer in eastern Quebec, being allowed to resume his Liberal membership.
Cote was one of 10 members banned for life from the federal party by former prime minister Paul Martin in a bid to contain the political damage from the sponsorship scandal.
During the Gomery inquiry into the scandal, Cote testified that he received $120,000 in $100 bills from the executive director of the party’s Quebec wing. He distributed that money to 12 Liberal candidates in the 1997 federal election.
Dion also defended Jean Pelletier, former prime minister Jean Chretien’s chief of staff, saying he had served the country well for decades.
Pelletier was fired by Martin from his job as head of Via Rail. Justice John Gomery concluded that Pelletier was responsible for the sponsorship program, although he was never directly implicated in any wrongdoing.
Fellow Montrealer Marlene Jennings said the two men were presumed guilty and expelled without being given a chance to defend themselves.
“I think that Mr. Dion is right,” she said.
“There are people we would like to see back in the party,” she told reporters on her way into the second day of a Liberal caucus meeting.
Jennings said the “public notoriety” surrounding his testimony and expulsion from the party was punishment enough for Cote.
“He’s definitely paid for it.”

Do I really need to comment on this. I will tell you what Mr. Dion, bringing back people who stole Canadians money into the Liberal party is a big step into convincing Canadians that the Liberal Party has cleaned up the mess. And as for the "Paid for It" Comment, I might be alone but 1 year suspension with a big payout, and no jail time doesn't quite strike me as someone who has paid for it.

I think if Canadians knew this information they would be disgusted, however the problem is they would need to pay attention. Oh well.
