Yet another Presedential Photobomb – How boring was that rally?
The Olympics have come and gone and Canada has apparently won “The most medals Evar” by a host nation. Which is nice I suppose.
With a price tag of 8 Billion and counting I hope that the balance sheet works out for Vancouver as the Recession continues unabated. Right? Around here I think people would be willing to literally shovel shit for work as the job market tightens into a tight ball like a potato bug and doesn’t show any signs of letting up; never mind the HUNDREDS of positions in the want ads. If the news tells you that it’s poverty-aggeddon then you should behave like it is.
Good luck recouping those costs that have been laid out on your behalf; by comparison the estimated cost (dollars) for each day in Afghanistan is approx. 3 Million (http://www.afghanistan.gc.ca/canada-afghanistan/news-nouvelles/2009/2009_02_25a.aspx?lang=eng) with the expected total cost to be 11.3 billion. Just think, for 3 Billion more Canada could have been saving Iraq too! How exciting; huh?
All of that nonsense aside; the Winter Olympics have indeed brought out some nice nationalism in the Canadian people; allowing them to show again that even in the face of glorious victory they don’t destroy their own downtown in celebration. I’m not naming names or anything; but at least one big fratboy neighbor on the Continent can’t really say the same.
For failing to pass meaningful Health Care Reform
For campaigning for Joe Lieberman
For supporting the Corporations over the People
For not halting the Iraq Incursion
For not closing Guantanamo
For not meaningfully punishing the Banks and Speculators that nearly destroyed the world economy
For failing to reverse any of the real legal difficulties that the Bush Admin put into place
I say NOBAMA
If you didn’t see this “thinking” coming down the pipe when Justice Roberts intentionally flubbed the Oath, then you should shake your head and get it on straight. The Hope-Sauce won’t stop the serious nuts from trying to tear down their enemy by any mean necessary, imagine the rules-lawyering that will be deployed over that series of words!
Expect more of this kind of stuff over the next few weeks; it’ll be on snopes by end of week in an email circulated by the National Review’s readership.
In case you think I’m crazy:
As if on cue
In Colorado, Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput and the state Catholic Conference are fighting several measures that would suspend or repeal the state’s civil statute of limitations on child abusers.
Charles Chaput is simply a politician who wears a funny hat and tells people what will happen to their immortal souls; let’s consign his opinions to the bin of history, shall we?
