Flaherty takes credit for our banking system

Apparently our Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is taking credit for the Canadian banking system where our five monopolistic banks have to maintain set ratios to remain sanctioned.

The rules have been there long before Flaherty even started screwing up Ontario's finances.

This is basically the same as Tony Clement our Minister Heath taking credit for universal health care.

Anyway in typical Flaherty style he then placed his other foot in his mouth by taking a shot at the other industrialized countries as he was a boarding a plane to meet with them at an emergency G7 meeting.
“I can say with confidence (to) Canadians that today our financial institutions are well-capitalized in Canada, which cannot be said in a number of another countries in the world,” he assured reporters in Toronto.
Sorry Jim, somehow this week’s 1% increase in my TD equity loan or the fact that banks aren’t lending money to anybody, might be the real problem here and I don't really think the G7 appreciate your smugness either.

Please Oshawa, your country needs you. Vote this clown out of office, our country's finances depend upon it.

Vote ABC.

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 …
