Where is a god when you need one

Because if there was one handy, Stockwell Day would spend his after life rotting in hell.

This former evangelical minister, ex-leader of the reform party and now retiring ex-menial, minister, is now considered the calming, honest voice for the contemptuous Harper government. Last night on Strombo, (video below) Day lied his ass off, in trying to explain one of the most corrupt acts that this excuse for a government has pulled off in four years.

On the morning of their last day in power, on the day that they knew they were going to be found in Contempt of Parliament, Harper’s government offered an opposing report on the G8/G20 spending spree. An opinion that went against the majority of our representatives and a constructed opinion that included a quote from the Auditor General that claimed, they the Harper government used sound processes in spending $1.2 billion of our money and that these funds were spent as intended.

Forgetting, for a just a moment that these funds included up to $500 million of outright pork barreling (buying votes & political payback) exclusively to conservative ridings that were nowhere near the summits, the quote was an outright fabrication.

The quote used was from ten years previous, from a CBC television interview, in response to Liberal spending regarding the immediate aftermath of 911.

And Day’s explanation (at min. 2:04 of the video below)

“the person writing the report, looked at the report the governor general had given, she had addressed subject A & subject B and the guy putting this report quickly, took a quote from part B and put it in part A, and I am not going to judge and say he didn’t do that deliberately (Day’s eyes close) but we are going to find out and get to the bottom of it.”

Excuse me, Day, subject A and subject B, that span ten years, dealing with completely different events, not to mention different political parties is being passed off as possibly a clerical error or god forbid an over zealous unnamed individual. You, Peter MacKay, the head of the Committee and your contemptuous leader know who wrote the report and who ordered it to be fabricated.

Unfortunately Stockwell, you will get older and in a couple of years as Canadians start to forget that you ever existed, you will lie awake at night remembering the futility of your wasted time spent on this planet and in those agonizing moments you will remember your despicable performance last night.

And somehow that thought may help me sleep better tonight, you despicable sack of shit.

Yeah, you can see how dissenting Con members on the committee might easily confuse a report on the Canadian government's response to planes being flown into the Trade Towers in New York on 9/11 ten years ago with the AG's current investigation into the G8/G10 Slush Fund.

So what was their excuse for also misquoting Kevin Page in the same report?

They didn't just "accidentally" copy and paste some out-of-context text from the AG. It's worse than that. They "accidentally" transcribed some of the AG's spoken words from a TV interview.

I forgot about that part of the lie.

Exactly a CBC transcript and a report that the AG had not released. Total fabrication.

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 …
