My family first met councillor Rob Ford when our own elected representative was unresponsive to our concerns. Mr. Ford visited our home and offered his assistance — with the blessing of the city’s integrity commissioner.

Years later, Mayor Ford, and his staff, continued to return our phone calls and provide support. We were, and are, truly appreciative.

In contrast, the new mayor and his staff have refused to offer any assistance — let alone return a phone call or respond to a letter — not even out of courtesy. Notwithstanding all else, the choice is simple. May he rest in peace.

How many issues can a family have that they have to continuously work with City Hall that have merit? Jeff Green, you have issues.

There’s a good reason why the FBI might not ask the NSA: It is advantageous to the FBI to set a legal precedent here by forcing Apple to cooperate. If the FBI had won this fight, it would’ve had a strong precedent for conscripting tech companies to assist in dismantling their security in the future

This, This is why the FBI wants to make Apple say UNCLE, to have a precedent to force anyone else to do what they want

the distinction that has to be made is that Doug Ford Sr. was a genuine self-made success story. Rob and his brother take on the aura of self-made people, but they were born with silver spoons in their mouths.

It’s not just an addiction. Some people can drink, some people can casually use drugs. I have a disease. I have a chronic disease. I was born with blond hair and I’m going to die with blond hair. I was born with this disease. I’m going to die with this disease.

Rob Ford, July 2014 – Wrong Again, as usual.

The Union is dying. An opinion poll out this week showed that a majority of Scots will vote for independence if the rest of the UK votes to leave the EU. The Union is dying because Scotland’s on the wrong side of the tracks. The Union is dying from a thousand cuts. The Union is dying because it’s being killed by Unionists, Unionists who have piece by piece dismantled all the bricks of the British state and gouged out the mortar that held them together. And then they stand shocked and surprised at the very idea that anyone would want to escape the rubble that they’ve created. What they don’t understand is that the more that they attack the fabric of the welfare state, the more that they privilege London infrastructure above everyone else’s, the easier that they make it for us to leave. Scotland is on the fast track to independence, and it’s down to the Unionists.

I never said I was going to pay for fees

Donald Trump, a lying Liar who Lies. “Knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. OK? Just knock the hell — I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise.”
