Auto Bailout

The auto industry is too important to be allowed to bottom out. However, the bailout should carry two conditions:  The federal and contributing provincial governments should become major, but not majority, shareholders,  and the entire top management of the “Big Three” should be replaced by Japanese auto executives.

North American Auto Manufacturers have been dominated by unions for decades

To date I have not heard anything constructive coming from the demised ‘auto’ industry that I as a taxpayer feel I can support.

The North American Auto Manufacturers have been dominated by unions for decades and my exposure to these unions, through Buzz Hargrove,  is limited but suffice to know that unions of large industries are very powerful and well funded.

The U.S. is not even your friggin country!

The U.S. is not even your friggin country! You have no standing. I would say the same to the those on the other side who write all those stories about the ‘rest of the world’ favouring Obama for McCain by 4-1. Who cares? That’s favouring with an ‘ou’ by the way.

CBC: Pleae stop bullying Falun Gong!

I just finished watching the report broadcasted by CBC: Malaise dans le Chinatown/Enquete and what an appalling report that was!  I almost couldn’t believe my eyes that our very own CBC, which is supposed to be a decent national broadcaster, would produce something as derogatory as this.  Let me explain—the eerie music, weird camera angles, except for Mr. Crescent Chau of La Presse Chinoise and all his friends, all the other characters in the program were portrayed as secretive and strange, and the most demonized group, of course, was Falun Gong.  What I can’t understand is how could CBC manipulate such a report and present this as factual information to its Canadian audience.  After all the Falun Gong is a well known and well-respected spiritual group across the world, except for China where its followers are tortured and even killed for their belief.

Parents and children have rights too

It was inevitable and predictable. There are just too many responsible parents in this province to “roll over” like the B.C. Government Ministry of Education did in captitulating to the demands of well known homosexual activists Murray and Peter Corren. The secret legal agreement between the B.C. Government and the Corren’s giving them unprecedenteed control and influence over the province’s education curriculum was done without proper discussion, consensus or scrutiny.

Jaw Jaw vs war War

As if a stricken economy, a crumbling infrastructure and a health-care mess weren’t enough problems awaiting Barrack Obama’s attention when he becomes president, there are also the two 600 pound gorillas,  AKA Iraq and Afghanistan, waiting for him in the Oval Office,  And how he handles Afghanistan will have a major effect on Canada’s military presence in that Asian quagmire. John McCain sneered at Obama’s promise to talk with the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, but it was Israeli General Moshe Dayan who said: “If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.”

The American election

Something bigger than 9/11 occurred this past election year—and no one seems to have noticed, despite some obvious clues:

[1] The powerhouse Clintons were ousted from power in their party,
[2] a faux candidate was foisted of on the Republicans, and
[3] someone about whom no one knows anything is President.

For Whom the Poppies Blow

They cannot hear the muffled
nor the bugle’s mournful sound
for they gave their all for freedom
on a distant battleground.
They cannot feel the mourners’
nor see their loved ones’ tears
whose remembrance day is
every day
down all the lonely years.

Ruffling the eagle’s feathers

While we are very careful not to disparage any minority group because of their race, religion or sex, we have no such qualms about disparaging our American neighbors, even as we wallow in everything American from the Simpsons to Sarah Palin. In fact sneering at the U.S. is almost as popular as hockey in the great white north. We especially enjoy condemning the U.S. for its racism. But even though Canada doesn’t have a history of slavery,  we are not a as simon pure as we would like to believe. In fact it’s not that long ago that Jews and blacks were victims of widespread discrimination throughout Canada.

I disagree with Licia Corbella

Normally I agree with Licia Corbella, on many things but not this time.. I am a BIG Sarah Palin fan, and furthermore, there can be NO JUSTIFICATION WHATSOEVER for a vote for Barack Obama who has shown a greater disregard for human life in its embryonic state than any candidate that has gone before.

The Democrats will cut the military

Aside from the concept of posse comitatus, Obama is no doubt aware of the questionaires the military has done periodically, which always show that very few in any branch would fire on their fellow citizens.  When they give it to US Army Special Forces, the result has always been the same—that the SF troops would assume the people were right and would go off to join the civilian leadership.

Stéphane down, Steve to go

With all due respect I think your sentiments about Stephen Harper “moving on” are more wishful thinking than reality.  Mr. Harper has barely had a chance to prove himself.

His minority government lasted longer than most people thought and fact was the longest reigning minority government in our history.  Harper has consistently proved his critics wrong.

Taxpayers’ money

I believe it was a mistake for the U.S. to give billions of dollars to Europe following WWII (The Marshall Plan) as an outright gift instead of a loan to be repaid with interest when those war-ravaged countries became prosperous.  Now that the U.S. economy needs a huge transfusion of taxpayers money, it’s to be hoped that Washington doesn’t make the same mistake again.

An Adult Maturity Test?

The current debate on whether 16–year–olds should be considered mature enough to vote, while at the same time urging the government to lift their drivers licenses if they refuse to stay in school until they are eighteen, is causing us, once more, to ponder the definition of adulthood and the appropriateness of treating juveniles as adults, especially in the law courts.

Dirty Talking

The two teenage girls in the seat behind me on the bus were discussing the shortcomings of their supervisor at the burger joint. “The bottom line is,” said one of them, without even trying to lower her voice, ” he’s a &%##@ son-of-a-#.”
