Tories are shuffling the cards on the fly as they tour Southern Ontario

Today the Tories admitted that there is little hope for a majority government this fall.

Somewhat trapped by his own rules on fixed election dates, Harper explained to a group in Hamilton, Ontario that he was still in charge of his own destiny this fall.

"Polls do indicate that the next election is in all likelihood a minority, one way or the other," he said.
"The fact of the matter is, what I will have to decide over the next few weeks is whether or not we can have a productive fall session of Parliament, or whether in fact the government, a government, needs a new mandate."
It's clear that none of the opposition parties intend to hold out until the fixed election date of October 2009, he added.

"They have no intention of respecting the fixed election date," Harper said. "So I think obviously we're going to have to judge how the parliamentary agenda is unfolding."

So let’s recap:

Last night in Mississauga, the Tories changed their election message from:
"We need a majority because the Liberals are blocking us from getting anything done"    - to -    "We’ve accomplished a great deal as minority government despite the Liberals interference."
And today in Hamilton they admit that a majority is out of reach.

I have the feeling that Tories are looking at different polls than the ones we are being fed and I think Harper needs to have an election in a hurry.

I think BIGCITYLIB might be right, the economic numbers are about to bite him the ass.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
