Dear Mississauga Erindale Voters

Bob Dechert our Conservative MP does not represent you, he is a sycophant politician who only represents himself.

Not only has Bob just voted in favor of destroying the gun registry, but Bob will not even respond to anyone whom he assumes, disagrees with his political party’s ideology. 

The vote on the long gun registry was, and I will type this with as much decorum as I can muster, supposedly a free vote. A vote that was not a government confidence vote, but a vote where each MP, regardless of party affiliation, could vote either by their personal conscience, or based on their personal understanding of the desires of the majority of their constituents, at least according to our Prime Minister and his party’s leader.

However, Bob along with every other Harper conservative voted to destroy the long gun registry, despite the fact that the Peel Region police force, our police force, relies, everyday day on the long gun registry to protect themselves and us the citizenry of Erin Mills and despite the fact that the majority of us living in Mississauga Erindale, support the long gun registry. 

Personally, I am a long gun owner, my gun is registered and I support the long gun registry.

No, Bob is not just another weak sycophant (and I would add conservative here, but it is not just a conservative failing) politician who makes excuses for voting on bills because he has been told to, as opposed to representing his constituency, Bob will refuse to even respond to constituents that he recognizes as a someone who supported another candidate.

Bob never mentioned the gun registry in his limited summer vacation appearances. He never mentioned the reasons he wanted the long gun registry destroyed on his web site and Bob will even refuse to answer your questions if he assumes you support another party. 

Bob only represents himself, not us.

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 …

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
