Herr Prime Minister the media nazi



The Prime Ministers Office has laid down strict rules regarding media access during the Obama visit, limiting the length of Obama’s meetings with our Head of State and the Leader of the opposition. Our Governor General Michaelle Jean will meet with Obama for 15 minutes in an airport bar and the leader of opposition has had his originally scheduled 30 minute meeting reduced to a shorter 15 minute meeting in an airport hangar. The media will not be allowed to televise those meetings.

Teneycke, Harper’s director of apparently non-communication has also threatened to cancel the press conference if, at any point in the day, a Canadian reporter shouts out a question without being invited to do so. Although it is not much of a press conference, as the two leaders will only take four questions - two from each country's media.

Hmm 4 questions:

Mr Harper are you going to apologize for your interference in the Ohio primary when your government slagged Mr. Obama over NAFTA and Mr. Obama will you accept the Prime Ministers apology?

Mr Obama, when can we expect Omar Khadr, the child soldier that has been imprisoned in Guantanamo, to be repatriated to Canada and Mr. Harper will you apologize to the Canadian public?

Mr Obama since 60% of Canadians would of voted for you in the US election and 62% of Canadians did not vote for Mr. Harper, what are your plans for winning over the remaining 2% of the progressive Canadians and Mr. Harper you do not need to answer this question?

One just for you Mr. Prime Minister. Now that the audio experts have found that the Zytaruk tape was not altered. Can you please explain whether you authorized your party’s attempted bribe of an independent member of parliament, who also happened to be dying of cancer?

CTV seems a little pissed about the rules, so I would assume they are out so, it would guess Global or Post

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 …
