This is just way too convenient

According to this Star article Harper has received threats against his life.

For this reason he only makes announcements before small, hand-picked groups and addresses political rallies where every person in the audience has to register with officials from the local Conservative party organization.
"Certainly, my security situation changed radically once I became Prime Minister," he told reporters at a event, surrounded by young people wearing light blue Conservative T-shirts.

Looking a bit uncomfortable, he said: "Unfortunately, we live in an era where the Prime Minister of Canada faces strong security threats. I'm not informed about all of them.

"Obviously, there's always been potential security threats to people in high office. But when we're dealing in an era of global terrorism and these kinds of things, there are a disturbing number of threats to the country and specifically to whoever occupies the office of prime minister. This is unfortunate but it's reality."

Citing standard security precautions, aides to Harper declined to answer questions about how many death threats he has received as Prime Minister.
Let me get this straight, yesterday two writers from the Star here, finally take the conservatives to task about the limited access anyone outside of the invited few have to Harper speeches and even access to local Tory candidates.

And today we get the Star telling us that this is because Harper’s life is at risk.

I don’t buy any of this.

We are living in a dangerous time and there is a disturbing threat to our country, specifically from an ideological political party that is far too willing to distort the facts and a media that can so easily be manipulated.

I totally missed this bullsh*t.

Harper really does think he is running for President. I don't recall any other election where party leaders felt threatened on the campaign trail.

Also, who is paying for the RCMP detail on Harper's campaign? Is it the Conservative Party or taxpayers? And if it's the latter, is that not taking advantage of his position as PM?

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 …
