CTV your partisanship is showing

According to this CTV article Canadians are OK with the billion dollar G8/G20 summits. Unless of course you read the article.
Of those polled who heard something about the cost of hosting the summits, 61 per cent said they were too expensive to be worth it.
Learn more here from CTV, although you might as well just make things up, like they seem to be doing.

Sadly, I don't think they're making this up.

For today's conservative. Real fiscal conservatism is cutting all over the place to make the most folks suffer while they spend all their money on their 'pals'

Oh some cons over at the Blogging SupposiTories are whining about them money spent, but in the end, they will catapult Steve to his next majority. Unless, of course, we start showing more support for the opposition and/or a new leader takes over for the Liberals before the end of summer.

Looks like the great expense is to be the springboard for the upcoming election.

We think things are bad now; just wait until Steve gets a majority.

Hi CK

Similar to the poll results in the article, everyone I have spoken to thinks this billion dollar pork barrel, photo Op is ridiculous and they are sticking it right on Harper.

What surprises me is that 24% of those polled were not aware of the billion dollars or what other counties have spent in the past. But in reality more than that percentage do not vote anyway.

Right now this looks bad for Harper and I don't think any number of pictures of Stevie with other leaders will change that.

He actually might have jumped the sark this time

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 …
