I promise to get to the Olympics and that slogan which is still bothering some people, Own the Podium, which in the opinion of some makes us look like a bunch of HOT DOGS who aren’t really serious about sport and excellence…we’re just a Hot Talking, Trash Talking, American Wannabe Nation…But first a few words about another Sacred Cow that is being taken to slaughter by contemporary standards.
Why are members of the foreign media wondering why a host country would like to dominate their games? Did China not want to dominate theirs and was anyone surprised. Was the USA afraid to dominate in Salt Lake? Own the Podium- are those words too tough to digest?
A dramatic news conference yesterday in Toronto where a 32-year-old councilor Adam Giambrone abruptly walked off stage after making a brief, but emotional statement apologizing for cheating on his live-in girlfriend with several women.
We begin with an email that a Canadian sent to his Member of Parliament and I have been carbon copied. Hmmm…carbon copied…there’s a term that will have to change in this era where carbon is a leper. Let me start over. Here’s an email to an MP and I have been copied on this.
I don’t know of anyone who is forcing you to remain in Canada. If you are truly embarrassed to be Canadian, you can always stop having a Canadian website, the CBC can stop posting your blogs and stop paying you with Canadian tax dollars. You can always burn your OHIP card so that you no longer have your health care subsidized by Canadian tax dollars.
Among my favorite emails in the last couple of days are those coming from people who say if I am willing to trust the science on Vaccines, why I do I shrug off the science on Man Made -Sorry EVIL Man made-Sorry Evil Planet polluting Polar Bear hating Climate change.
The emails just keep on coming about Stephen Harper’s Saturday night at the National Arts Centre. This was no average night at the opera for Stephen Ringo Harper. Ringo was the original prominent vocalist in the original song that the PM belted out on Saturday night. He played the piano and sang “I get High with a little help from My Friends.” And received a standing Oh from a NON Conservative Crowd.
Haven’t written you in quite some time now - As you know I sent Michael Ignatieff a bit of a rocket a few days ago. Reaction was strong from all sides of the aisle. 1) It’s hard to find any rational Canadians who want this country to have it’s fourth election in six years.
We continue to hear from various people in the Tamil community in Canada and most of these folks are CANADIAN. Let’s be clear about that. We are not talking about people who are NOT CANADIAN, but in Canada, like it or not, we now have been hyphenated, not just by sociologists and political scientists and political parties, but by the government itself.
I have in my hands the document that for some reason is still up on the Liberal Party of Canada’s website. It is the document sent to the Governor General requesting that she take what I called the Three Stooges of Coupscam seriously. Michael Ignatieff’s signature is on this document and it is still up on the Liberal Party of Canada’s site, despite the fact that the leader wants people to forget that he was part of this ridiculous political adventure.
The Big Dog of the Liberal party Michael Ignatieff, so visible in recent weeks, has fallen under the radar. He’s been as rarely seen as a Canada goose during a Manitoba January. I throw in these Canadianisms because Michael is educating himself on how best to impersonate a Canadian. They feed him my commentaries and while I am not a Harvard professor, I try to be instructive.
