Dammit Janet you piss me off

With reverence to the progressive ladies at Dammit Janet and Impolitical.

For the record, I have signed onto the FaceBook CAPP, but only because JJ said the magic word. Didn't really want a FaceBook account, and I don't know if it counts since I used my Willy Loman handle. However when I signed up, I immediately got a friend Scott Tribe, (but I think he sent one to everyone at ProgBlogs).

Not bad eh, I got four big time bloggers in one post.

Anyway going to a rally on the 23rd. My first rally since John Lennon died. I hope they sing songs that I know the words to.

LOL. Welcome to the Reluctant Facebook Bloggers Group. (Ooo, I should start that.)

Back when I belonged to and was welcome at Bread and Roses discussion board, I was so pissed at FB that I started a thread -- since bowdlerized -- titled F*** Facebook.

You can imagine the snerking going on at me.

So, Biff, I'm off to friend you. :p

Don't worry, I had nuked my facebook account and had to reactivate it just to join this group. (Facebook: you can check out any time you like, but...)

Crap. There are 99 Willy Lomans. Give us a clue, eh?

Who knew there would be so many. This FB thing must be popular. I guess I'm just another Willy Loman, after all.

I think I'm this one.

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.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
