To my idiot neighbours in Streetsville

As explained by Rick Mercer

and as we witnessed in Parliament.

Besides Brad thinks that this is a good look.


Streetsville, you say. What a douchebag.

Sadly MoS it is so. Purple Mississauga is full of these assholes. Tomorrow I will tell you about Bob Dechert the lecherous Con MP in Erindale Mississauga. The only person in the world that had both Rick Mercer and Ezra Levant went after.

I've learned, actually not to long ago, that an MP can tell a bold face, then retract it with another lie and there are voters who do not thinks it's really a big deal that he lied. They don't really care that he lies. They just don't think about it. They'll continue to vote for him. So what if he's a liar. They think, he's of our tribe and we support him.

.. Stephen Harper has led the breakthrough in political lying. Full Stop.
Our current PM discovered that the more you lie, deceive, twist, obstruct, redact, confuse, conflate, pretend, pose, defraud. deny, lie, lie some more.. the less anyone is willing or capable of keeping track of it all. So Brad Butt's bullshite, the Calandra canards, Peter Kent's treachery, Peter MacKay's fallacies, the 'spend more time with my family' spinners & philanderers, the money shuffle demons, the data cranks, robowankers, fake immigrants... are all safely nested as 'just political speech' or 'hijinks' .. Today there are spokeswanks ready to quickly spew nonsense to mainstream media - hosing down the transgressions so to speak.. Thus we have James Moore and Laureen proclaiming nonsense re Terry Fox family 'enthusiasm' and wiping a bald face Harper lie 'I never said MIW were not high on my radar' from the front page, mid web or anywhere page.. Brad Butt is way way back in the trail of Harper deceit, despite being an astounding example of rancid values in a public servant position. Now, after lying through your teeth.. they just need a spokeswank to pop up and say 'the Honorable Member mis-spoke...' or received incorrect information from a volunteer underling.. or TFW .... or 'No Comment' ... or they just get disappeared by The PMO, Jenni Byrne or spoken to by Arthur Hamilton, who is currently silenced himself.

Pam (can I call you Pam)

Unfortunately politicians lie, not just CONS and not just in Parliament. But what got me with Butt's performance above and gets me with Harper's crew in general, is that they not only construct outrageous lies to push through corrupt laws, but the construction of those lies is developed by the PMO as part of the launch programme.

He lied about seeing voter fraud as a reason to bring in a law they claimed would reduce voter fraud. Fraud that he then had to admit did't exist. A law that passed which in fact makes it harder for seniors and students at universities to vote. A law that in fact makes it harder for all of us to vote and at the same time takes powers away from Election Canada to monitor and investigate claims of fraud.

It would be humorous if it was not happening in our country.

And the fact that voters in Streetsville would accept this, not question this, amazes me.

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.
