People don't care, Spelly. It bugs me to no end when I see spelling or careless mistakes on any posts. If you take the time to post, then take the time to make it at least look intelligent.


Jimssm 2/24/2014 6:42:11 AM Report

Speaking of 'don't care' attitudes. People also don't care that their government spies on them. (USA and to a certain extent Canada) Text messages, voicemail, emails, your movements, cell conversations.... all scanned for trigger words or recorded outright. But people answer "I'm not doing anything wrong so let them do it".

20 years ago, if you learned the government opened your mail, read it, kept a copy and sent the original back to you, there would have been a revolt.
Today, in the digital age, because there is no physical 'thing' they are keeping, people don't care.

I see Harper is going to limit debate, no public input and ram his new elections bill through the house. Isn't a democracy a wonderful thing? Well I guess this is part of his answer to not being able to beat Trudeau in a fair election. Make it legal for them to run another crooked election. I hope he makes you neo-cons feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Good Morning Grump and Spellchecker!

Found this article this morning.

Trudeau skips out as Liberal conventioneers vote to legalize assisted suicide

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/liberals-vote-legalize-assisted-suicide-trudeau-39-position-151305434.html

"He was in the room later when delegates gave him an overwhelming, after-the-fact endorsement of his decision to kick senators out of the Liberal caucus.

Delegates also passed a raft of potentially costly resolutions that included supporting many big-ticket items:

— An $18-billion-a-year investment in infrastructure.

— Creation of a basic annual income.

— A national transportation strategy.

— Funding for aboriginal education on reserves equal to that spent on provincially operated schools.

— Increased funding for mental health services.

— Expansion and enhancement of the Canada Pension Plan.

None of the resolutions are binding on the leader and, since he gave no closing remarks and did not hold the traditional wrap-up news conference at the convention's end, it was unclear which resolutions Trudeau believes should make their way into a 2015 election platform or how a Liberal government would pay for them"

But not to worry---Our dear Leader will fix the next election , and all of the great ideas will be dismissed as Liberal pie in the sky.

Perhaps one of the card carrying J.T. loving libs on here would care to explain how Larry Summers, a former chief economist to the World Bank, ex-Secretary of the Treasury, and an economic adviser to two Democratic presidents....a U.S. citizen, has become J.T.'s key economic adviser.
This is a guy that strongly suggests to J.T. that debt and deficit are merely paper problems.
It is time for Ottawa to step up to the plate and spend!
This should be interesting...the Liberal Party of Canada suggesting that "debt and deficit are merely paper problems" and that Ottawa now needs to spend because this paper problem is constraining growth...should be a blast watching J.T. skate around decades of economic orthodoxy pounded into Canadian voters heads by none other than...the Liberal Party of Canada.

Morgan Freeman certainly had something to say about it...I guess Morgan must be a racist?

America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”

I find it sad that we need to keep addressing these racial issues with right wing et al. Because a group of people identifiable by the color of their skin, who have spent a life time fighting for equal rights, and to be treated as equal in a variety of arenas speak to this does not give another group to speak in a racially slanted manner. It does not open the door to your racist feelings. Perhaps when the playing field is truly level and all things equal we may enter into discussion about cultural differences without the fear of oppression. It seems that many white people in fear of becoming a minority in north america, I guess they are in a bigger fear of being treated as they have treated so many minorities for so many generations.

I am furious! I`m not a "taxpayer" due to illness. Nobody listens unless your income is taxable. But, boy oh boy they sure do want your vote come election time. I almost cried when I read my PUC bill online. The only thing stopping me, is my tears would`ve froze! This is pure BS!

Just some context for the bigots on here on the black voting numbers.

John Kerry -88%
Al Gore -90%
Bill Clinton-83%,84%
Michael Dukakis -89%
Walter Mondale-91%
Jimmy Carter-83%

Blacks have always overwhelmingly voted Dem.
I'm really surprised to see these easily debunked points still being spread by the ignorant, racist right wingers.It's like they don't know of the Google.

Oh Boy here I go!!!
What really irks me is I have a neighbor whose PUC is paid for by Ontario Works. She does laundry during the on peak hours, has her windows open, sometimes her door, clearly could not care less! I do everything in my power to keep my costs down! I do as much as humanly possible during the off peak hours, wash in cold water, line dry clothes, use flouresent light bulbs etc. Oh, and FREEZE half to death! Got up one morning, went into the bathroom... I could see my breath!! Not kidding!

steelworker: Re your 5:51 post. That is about what issue? Can't you get beyond just insulting? You go too far and I am tempted to report your post. I know you will laugh at and insult me so go ahead.

Buzzola Oh! they know about google and stick with it until they find some obscure bit to shore up their dumb assed point of view. Failing that they simply make the crap up as they go. That's their big problem , just reams of crap with no judgment behind it.

Wisen I didn't know Everson personally but I do know she had a job that you certainly wouldn't be qualified to do on the best day of your miserable little existence. You are only a legend in your own miserable tiny mind.

Interesting fact.
It was a democrat that started the K.K.K.

Times change.
Your point?

I am not fond of the post Olympic adrenaline drop. I tried cheering myself on while shoveling snow off my patio but that didn't last long. I'm bored...just thought I would share that :(

Never said it was a "point", just a fact...and your point is....

So sorry resident weevil; Justin would sit down with Mr. Li and try to find out "where he's coming from". If you're trying to work the mental illness angle: forget about it. In some cases it's the last refuge of a killer (see Ted Bundy,John Wayne Gacy et al).

Interesting fact.
It was a democrat that started the K.K.K.

Then came the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the majority of those Southern Dems fled to the Republican Party. More pesky facts.

In the end - who cares?
But I understand the inference with the term KKK.So let it alone.
Resident 2/24/2014 10:16:57 PM Report

Steelworker: "Resident weevil"?? If your point is that Trudeau would try to help people with mental illness why don't you just say that?

How do you know what Trudeau thinks about the particular person being allowed unescorted passes? I certainly don't agree with Li(what's his name) being allowed passes so....

Yes Grunt, Eversons is a genius,
and TP is Einstein's smarter older brother.
Wisenheimer 2/24/2014 10:27:21 PM Report

Hey Grunt .. apparently Everson's job didn't require spelling, grammar or the ability to think clearly.
