Vic Toews waves his hand and alludes to that which never was.

"Conservative MP and president of Treasury Board Vic Toews said the government sympathizes with Canadians who have lost their jobs but suggested the situation would be much worse had Canadians voted for the carbon tax plan the Liberals championed during the last federal election."

Yeah, that's helpful Vic, and it addresses so many relevant issues doesn't it? Bay Street liked the plan Vic. Remember? Forget about the shiny thing Vic, we have. Now what about those 83,000 jobs lost in February?


  1. Infuriating bunch, Toews and company. They not only allude to, they outright state "that which never was". Time and time again. Some good ads are appearing showing just that. I, for one, contrary to what reporters say, watch Statements by Members and Points of Order after QP. Very revealing. I watch the debates too and I think people who are engaged in politics do. It doesn't take many episodes to know the players and their tactics. CPC are blatant, obvious and rude. They lie, out-right lie. And smile doing it. Those people in charge of our Country now, have brought a whole new low to the HoC and poisoned it for good. Arseholes. Thanks for allowing me to express this, Comrade One. Have a good day. I support no Party. I support politicians like Dion and Garth Turner and several others.

  2. They not only allude to, they outright state "that which never was"

    I like that Anon. Reminds me of some lines from the Men in Black, re: The light of Zartha.

    Although no one has ever been able
    to prove their existence...

    ...a quasi-government agency,
    the Men in Black...

    ...supposedly carries out operations
    here on Earth... order to keep us safe from aliens
    throughout the galaxies.

    Here is one of their stories
    that "never happened"...

    ...from one of their files
    that doesn't exist.

    Or maybe the late Conway Twitty. More Radio apologies first. Chortle.. snerk..

    It's only make believe;

  3. And Now For The Bathtub Test

    During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how it is determined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

    'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.'

    'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.'

    'No' said the Director.

    'A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'

    The 2010 Winter Olympics are coming up, and these comments happened in Beijing, when the world used to be rich . . .

    In the Olympic spirit -- these are hilarious! Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators during the last Olympics that they would like to take back.

    1. Tennis commentator: 'One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them . . . Oh my God, what have I just said?'

    2. Dressage commentator: 'This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.'

    3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: 'I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.'

    4. Boxing Analyst: 'Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.'

    5. Softball announcer: 'If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.'

    6. Basketball analyst: 'He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.'

    7. At the rowing medal ceremony: 'Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.'

    8. Soccer commentator: 'Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field.'

    9. Weightlifting commentator: 'This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.'
    It is strongly recommended that reincarnation, in the male person, be avoided at all costs, as it (being a man) is NOT conducive to strong, mental health -- witness hairy.

    The last panel of today gives a clue as to what I used to do for a second job (male escort). !!NOT!!
    And so it goes. A hearty good day to one and all. So Mr. Toews is President of the Treasury Board, which probably has something to do with money, which also means that he, Carney, dimdumb and a few others colluded to help spend $20 bln. or so of surplus (taxpayers') money, then helped dig this country's grave.

    'Tis better that other people, far more intelligent than I ever will be, comment on this -- y'all know what I think of these cheats and liars anyway, and nothing will change my mind.

    Instead, I point you to David Crane's column today -- "The Business of Canada - Crisis Exposes Weak and Struggling". He focuses on companies, not people but folks need jobs to earn a paycheque to support themselves and / or families.

    He writes for the Toronto Star. It is an excellent column, asking many questions. An interesting one was "What will all the graduating engineers, who used to be hired by Nortel and other companies going to look for now those companies have cut back?"

    In Nortel's case, it is almost broke and will be a much leaner company when it resurfaces (if it does).

    With the millions of unsold, brand new cars - trucks - minivans sitting idle, because not many can afford new ones now, one can see the "Ripple Effect" happening worldwide, with ever-increasing speed.

    I guess when the 2010 Winter Olympics are over, as I said before on Garth's old political blog, that is when the manure will be flying all over the globe.
    Berkshire Hathaway was downgraded, but this link gives a better overview. So much for Buffett's "Buy and Hold" theory! --

  4. To add to my earlier comment, the Group of One and his mutated minions have demeaned every Parliamentary procedure I can think of. From Committees to the Speaker's ruling on their odious Statements. They have twisted the purpose of those even. The sick b*stards. Now they've found a way around that. No name until the end so Mr.Milliken can't cut them off. I watched the Cons question his ruling and accuse him of 'protecting the Libs'. PP makes my skin crawl. I'm sorry. They have people's lives in their hands, for the love of Christ Almighty, that's why I burn. And this is their game. Guess how that's working out for them? They're going down in Ontario, and out in Quebec. They are losing women's support. And the skinheads support them? Is this so? Linda.

  5. Evidently, Steve made a speech to his own that was described at Bigcitylib or Scott's Diatribes as quite offensive to some of his long-time Libertarian supporters. A blogger was one. Nice goin', eh? Just can't help being the ---- he is. Scary that he and his crew have the power they do. Regressive oppressors, in my opinion, they are. But, I take heart...a house built on lies and all that. Thanks for Radio Okie. G'night.

  6. I forgot to sign my comment above, when I try Google account I lose my post. It just evaporates! Linda.

  7. Things you don't say to your wife. Ever!

    Along with a brief look at the Royal Family, narrated by two Hindu gentlemen.
    It seems Garth's latest post shows the msm are beginning to view the economic slowdown in a different light.

    I'm shocked and stunned. Not for one moment did I ever realize the msm would begin to grasp the truth of this world, as they have always had rose-colored glasses on.

    For instance, Iraq had thousands upon thousands of nukes, Osama bin Laden is still alive and well, Iran is a direct threat to Neptune and the Titanic is still sailing.

    Am I making any sense to you?!
    North America spends billions of taxpayers' money each year on the war on drugs, which to a large extent, is a complete waste (unless some in the HoC and Congress are profiting from it). The Hells Angels and other gangs certainly are.

    First link shows that Portugal is a better country since taking an opposing view. Second shows two people on opposite sides of the wall. However, jails -- especially the US -- are full because of pathetically stupid drug laws.--

  8. Hi Linda, you are welcome. Somethings are best said by artists.

    I caught the thing on Harper's latest campfire talk. Appears he is confusing a goodly number of folks these days. My inclination is either he's playing to the weirdosphere base or a few cards have slipped from his deck.

  9. Charles, I read something recently about MSM that I thought apt. It put forward the opinion that there is too much "opinion", and not enough effort put into fact gathering and presentation based on fact. Lazy and or cheap journalism I guess.

    Still, there are some good pieces done. It just takes considerable time to find them. Bit like a scavenger hunt, or as Forrest Gump said, like a box of chocolates.

  10. Now what about those 83,000 jobs lost in February?

    These job losses will soon translate into a collapse in the broader economy of our largest employer, small business.

  11. How golden is silence?

    AIG to pay $450 mln in bonuses despite bailout

  12. And when the collapse intensifies we should learn from people like Dimitry Orlov, who contrasts the collapse of Russia's economy to that of the U.S. I like how he writes- interesting, lived in both countries and has no political axe to grind. One piece called 'Social Collapse Best Practises', I was thrilled to read- his insight! Linda.

  13. Sorry, Practices!

  14. There is another troubling aspect to what the CPC says in the HoC. They are saying the words 'Separist' and 'terrorist' together and often, every chance they get. Seems to me a tactic to confuse the sheep and poison yet two more worthy debates. I read a piece once on how it is impossible to have a rational, logical, factual arguement with so many of the right. But hey- the Truth goes marching on!! And anyone can join in too- the more the merrier!

  15. Should read Separatist, Linda:)

  16. What is most evident to me in what passes for political discourse by most MP's, especially the CPC, in the House, is constant electioneering. And outside the House, it's RACKETEERING. We now have a Con MP. We're getting new hockey arenas and millions to update the casino. Nice. And a lot of NDP and Lib ridings are begging to get squat, pretty much. NDP can't get money for projects for CLEAN DRINKING WATER. Yeah, the new deal, from the new-con's. I want to scream, we need a VOICE from the 65% that didn't want them in power, so we can please make them go away next time. PLEASE?!!
