Darlene Compton!!

I’m sorry but I just can’t get over Darlene Comptons outrageous comment. Tighten your belts! I’m so angry at this callous woman who cares nothing for the plight of so many islanders. Let them eat cake! Are there no workhouses? no prisons? all reminders of the past. All the things that spring to mind after Comptons demeaning remark. What makes this even more offensive is the fact, not King or any member of his government thought it necessary to apologize for her nasty remarks. In other words it was okay with the King government, they therefore agreed it needed to be said. This almost duplicates the days of peasants and land Barons. We have a government living high on the hog and an evil Baron raping the land. How much longer can/will we allow this to continue?

Tighten your belts

I imagine Darlene Compton is regretting her unfeeling comments telling Islanders to tighten their belts. It has certainly back fired on her, and deservedly so. The arrogance of some politicians is almost unbelievable. However, it happens so often these days we should be use to it by now. Busy having a bicycle rack fitted to her government vehicle and charging it to tax payers is all signs of grasping and greedy politicians. From the time when Sheridan charged a pack of gum to his government credit card to this latest attempt to squeeze money out of tax payers. When such incidents are brought to the public attention, there should be punishment in the form of a weighty fine. As it stands nothing happens, culprit keeps his/her head down for a while until we forget about it.
Next election there they are all smiles and full of promises they have no intention of keeping. We islanders must remember and issue our own punishments by not voting for these greedy politicians.
God Bless keep reading and remembering

Liberal Leadership

Well it’s seems we have rumblings within the liberal districts as they prepare for a leadership convention. Presently the liberals sit as a distant third party, and the chances of winning the next election very slim at best. If they are to make any headway they will need a fresh new progressive personality to lead them forward. So far they are quiet saying they hope new exciting candidates come forward. From my experience this is all smoke and mirrors, they already have at least two possible candidates. If I were to predict, I would not be in the least bit surprised to see Wayne Easter and Kevin Murphy names batted around. Unfortunately neither of those two names inspire much hope or excitement for me. Surely the liberals will be smarter than that, I can’t imagine Easter winning many votes based on Aggie culture! Or Murphy wearing his new Order of Canada medal. Instead of using these party hacks/insiders they need a new face, someone with fresh ideas and a strong forward thinking policies. They certainly do not need to coronate another super failure like MacLauchlan. He caused the complete collapse of the liberals in the last election. It will be interesting to see who they come up with, at least that part will generate a little interest.

Company Policy- Hire Only Married Men!

A company had a policy of hiring only married men.

Concerned about this, the leader of a local Woman’s Liberation Front, called on the C.E.O. of the company and asked him, “Why is it that you limit your employees to married men?”

“Is it because you consider us women weak, dumb, cantankerous, tantrum-throwers and bossy ?”

That C.E.O. replied, “Not at all, Ma’am. Our policy is to hire staff who are used to obeying orders without questioning, are accustomed to being shouted at, know how to keep their mouths shut, and would put up with anything, when I yell at them.”

“And we found all these qualities only in married men.”

Carbon Tax now Property Tax?

So most of us now have our 2022 increased tax assessment bills. Haven’t talked with anyone so far who is happy. They increased the property tax then gave a small rebate. One of my neighbours received an $11 rebated. She is angry calling them a bunch of crooks. She will not be voting for them again. Therein lies the problem, people are angry but come next election they will once more vote Liberal or PC. Then things will continue around the same circle, red blue red blue. Nothing changes and the same crooks she so fervently said she would not vote for will be re-elected. Doesn’t matter if they are red or blue we will have the same crooks back in business. Until we learn to vote for new people nothing is going to change. Vote for anyone but the two ruling parties. Please consider the term “ruling parties” if things are ever to change we need to vote differently. Give those independents candidates a chance, the Greens, NDP and anyone else who seeks election. By doing this we will eliminate the invisible back room powerbrokers. These are the people that run the province and who select their choice of leaders.   Watch the liberals when they begin the leadership convention, I speculate the back room boys will have already chosen one of two candidates who will become the next Liberal leader. My prediction is Kevin Murphy or Wayne Easter, what do you think???
God Bless and God help us if Im right

Carbon Tax Rebate

The PC government announced today the first of their promised carbon tax rebates. It  will be delivered through their new austerity belt measures program. This rebate is in the form of a good quality (imitation) leather belt. The belt comes with several extra adjustment tightening holes. Any islander who is walking jogging or cycling to work (or unemployed) and finds difficulty holding their pants up due to weight loss may be eligible. Apply by visiting the office of the Minister of Finance on Monday thru Thursdays during working hours from 11am to 12 noon. If office closed during these times, the minister may be at the local garage having her bicycle rack fitted. It is recommended you check back the following week. Please note this generous program will expire once the supply (one dozen) of these beautiful belts are gone. As an alternative the minister suggests using suitable length of sturdy rope, which she can provide for a minimal charge.
God Bless and tighten your belt.

Robert Morrisey is PROUD

I never bother to read these Morrissey bragging reports that show up in my mail box on a regular occurrence. However, to day I decided to read this very fancy and probably expensive brochure. It also occurred to me that through my taxes I’m probably paying for it too. Well beginning on the first page,  he goes on at length explaining how much he and the federal government have done for Egmont. Four or five times he declares how proud he is of all his accomplishments. He talks of the Green projects and how he has been involved in so many environmental improvements..He makes claim to the great help he and his government have achieved in helping seniors, saving on prescription drugs and meds. Hmm, I must be missing something because my meds cost in the region of $1000 dollars last year. I have seen no reduction in my insulin costs, certainly seen no obvious improvement in health care. Has Robert Morrissey checked in at the emergency rooms of the QEH or PCH lately? Regarding these green projects he is so proud of. Well big timber trucks are still seen most days hauling the precious trees out of Egmont? Was it not the Prime Minister who stated his government would plant a billion trees across Canada. I would have thought curbing the clear cutting of trees in this province might have been included in the tree planting program. That would actually be something Bobby could really claim to be proud of. Nevertheless, it remains a mystery why he is apparently so proud of the above mentioned subjects. Perhaps he should look up the meaning of the word proud before he uses it so extensively in his next brochure.

The Carbon Tax

I’m not sure of the revenue amounts this will bring into government coffers, but it’s something in the region of $35.000.000. Our honest and transparent premier tells us we will get this money back in the form of energy savings etc. Heat pumps come to mind. While a heat pump might be nice for a few home owners, it does nothing for those of us renting, or indeed homeless. It will do nothing to easy the burden of fuel costs, rents or food. For these insurmountable cost we have received one prized solution from Darlene Compton. The minister of finance tells us to tighten our belts. I can only surmise why King is grabbing the carbon tax, it’s for his future budgets. We are closing in on another election and he wants to look good. He will be able to brag about a positive budge, how he and his government have guide us into a bright economic future. He, of course won’t mention that he has managed this on the backs of unfortunate islanders. He will soon be on your door step, smiling face and a pocket full of empty promises. Please do not be fool again, remember it was the invisible back room boys that gave us King in the last election. I’m not going to recommend you vote Green or NDP, but do recommend you do not vote PC or Liberal. We need change, not only in politics but also in the systems we use to elect candidates. The FPTP is redundant and must be changed. We can no longer afford 35-40% Lib/PC majority governments. That’s my two cents worth for today, gee! not even sure I can afford two cents?

Tighten your Belts!

Politicians seem to have the idea they are more important than us, smarter than us, and should have privileges far beyond us. Us being the people of PEI, the people that elected these self important, arrogant and unfeeling politicians. The Minister of Finance Darlene Compton, as she fill the gas tank on her Government vehicle using her Government credit card, has the arrogance to tell Islanders we should tighten our belts. This is the same woman who swanked off to New Zealand a short time ago on an all expense paid government trip. How many other politicians do the same thing, using their government credit cards for gas, meals, oops that should be working lunches etc. However, when it comes to the carbon tax, King decides how the extra revenue will be used. It won’t be rebated back to those with their tightened belts. But let’s not despair he is giving out an emergency $150 to us in need! By emergency that means we will get it sometime in July. Imagine how long we might have waited if it wasnt and emergency. Islanders need to wake up, stop this foolish belief that they should just keep voting as their parents/grandparents voted. We are blind fools who election after election believe the same old lies over and over again. I don’t know what else to say Mr. Speaker!  but probably wasting my time anyway!

* My tolerance for idiots is extremely low today. I used to have some immunity built up, but obviously there is a new strain out there.

* As I watch this generation try and rewrite our history, one thing I’m sure of … it will be misspelled and have no punctuation.

* Sorry I haven’t gotten anything done today. I’ve been in the Produce Department trying to open this stupid plastic bag.

* Do you ever get up in the morning, look in the mirror and think, “That can’t be accurate.”

* I want to be 14 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas.

* Teacher: Give me a sentence which includes the words: defense, defeat, detail. Student: When a horse jumps over defense, defeat go first and then detail.

* I’m on two diets. I wasn’t getting enough food on one.

* Apparently RSVPing to a wedding invitation, “Maybe next time,” isn’t the correct response.

* I put my scale in the bathroom corner and that’s where the little liar will stay until it apologizes.

* Felt uncomfortable driving into the cemetery. The GPS blurted out, “You have reached your final destination.”

* My mind is like an internet browser. At least 19 open tabs, 3 of them are frozen and I have no clue where the music is coming from.

* Hard to believe I once had a phone attached to a wall, and when it rang, I picked it up without knowing who was calling, and I’m alive.

Super Dress

Shortly after the birth of their second child, a husband offered to take his wife shopping for a new dress. He endured more than two hours of listening to her complaints about which figure flaw each dress accentuated.

As she emerged from the dressing room, having tried on the last selection, she asked for her husband’s opinion. By this time he had learned just the right things to say. “It’s perfect!” he exclaimed. “It makes your waist look smaller, your legs look longer, and slenderizes your hips.”

Just then another lady in the dressing room spoke out. “If there is a dress here that will do that, I’ll buy them all!”
