Tories launching new attack ads in Nova Scotia, today.

The Tories propaganda over policy campaign continues this week in Nova Scotia.

With their new found propensity for cartoon characters, I bet it will be a talking lobster this time around. 

The Tories are not the most creative lot and the ads tend to be same for each region of the country and will probably run something like this:

The lobster will call into a radio talk show host and say “I can’t believe Dion wants to tax the price of gas”. 

We had similar ads in Toronto, except with a different character.

From The Gazette here.
Liberals and Conservatives are tied when it comes to voter support in Atlantic Canada, according to the latest Ipsos Reid poll

The Conservatives believe they have the means to break that logjam by hammering Dion and Atlantic Canada Liberals on the costs of the Green Shift.
By means I assume that the Gazette is referring to the large amount of cash that the Tories can use for regional attack ads.

It certainly doesn’t apply to a cohesive environmental plan to curb greenhouse gases. The Tories are a bit light when it comes to actual environmental policies.

Anyway good luck to my Bluenose friends and relations, the ads get really irritating after the first two.


Reference the Montreal Gazette here.

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.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

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 …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
