Please Read Before You Vote!!!!

I would like to qualify this blog by stating I was unable to fact check all the dollar amounts as being accurate. However, clearly some speak for themselves as being true, and I have little doubt the rest are real or very close to being so.

Read this and remember to vote accordingly!! Please forward from coast to coast.

Here is a short list to remind Canada why we should have never elected a ‘cute’ rich kid who has never really worked in his life:

At the G7 he pledged $400 Million to Education around the world along with another $180 Million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe . None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile education costs are skyrocketing for our students making University and College a – mountain too high for many to climb.
He pledged $241 Million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 Million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (cause they have – integrity!). This all happened while he told Vets that they were asking for too much.
He pledged $2.65 Billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now he is trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge
He pledged $300 Million to the Rohinga Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into the provinces that he won’t address
He pledged $125 Million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart.
He pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for women, while many women in our own country – are left without a family doctor.
He has pledged $50 million to Palestine for flood relief when New Brunswick had some of the worst flooding in decades this past spring.
He pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don’t have clean drinking water.
He gave $10.5 Million to a convicted…CONVICTED.. terrorist in a back-room deal that has led to another $30.8 Million paid out for three other terrorists who say – they were wrongfully detained”.
And most recently he spent $4.5 Billion on a pipeline that he is unwilling to get built. * Good investment for Canada he said.
(Please feel free to update this list…it just might not be complete)
THE ABOVE TOTALS OVER $10 BILLION DOLLARS…and none of it stays in our country. None.
Excuse me…except the 4.5 Billion dollar pipeline that cannot be built. (HIS NEWEST – IT WILL BE BUILT BUT NO DATE HAS BEEN GIVEN. Now, if he is re-elected you can bet it won’t be built…ever…not ever. This is just a vote buyer…and he is not done yet with Canada.)

NOTE: On that last item? ……..NOPE!! Not even that stays in Canada…The folks he paid, Kinder Morgan, are a huge American Company who were fed up with the screw-ups already foisted upon them by our stupid little spoiled brat rich kid selfie star drama teacher and were going to abandon the project. So the $4.5 billion has already gone south to the USA .

And he’s not done yet. He’s like the “Energizer Bunny”….He keeps going and going. Also he is not the “Brightest Bulb” on the tree. So it makes one wonder who is the puppeteer who is really manipulating the strings that bring this little weasel to life?

The Four (lie)Tellers!!!!!

Tuesday was a big day on PEI for local liberals. Our extoled leader, that amazing selfie photo person, with his amazing hair and leadership acme came to town. Well, not exactly town, he was in MacAulays special barn, a barn we tax payers built for him. In attendance were his four islander (lie) Tellers, they are a infamous island group of liberal liars. They tell us the things their leader tells them to tell us. Did I say they were tellers? I should at this point apologize to the real Island Tellers, sorry for using your names in such a derogatory way, really sorry. Not sorry about offending Trudeau and his four lie tellers though, its time they were kicked out of politics. I cant imagine why anyone would vote for Trudeau or his four yes men. Trudeau made many promises in the last federal election, most of which he broke once in office. Some might say his biggest broken promise was the last FPTP election, which he broke almost as soon as he took his seat in parliament. I don’t see this particular commitment as one of the many broken promises. As Elizabeth May stated this was a MASSIVE BETRAYAL. It was a deliberate lie to win votes, and unfortunately it worked for those of us who trusted him. Now don’t you think it strange that ole Justin didn’t speak yesterday with local reporters or answer islanders question on public media.  I expect one or more of the four (lie) tellers will say, oh it was just a flying visit no time for questions. Maybe next time! Yeah right. Please think about this before you vote in the upcoming election. We cannot afford four more years of liberal corruption. Please look for tomorrow’s blog, it promises to be very interesting and a real eye opener!!!

God Bless and keep reading.

PNP alive and well!

My mind really must be slowing down, I thought the PNP issues were done and dusted. However, they seem to be thriving and with the clear knowledge of our government. This can only be motivated by greed, what else could it be. It may now sneak around under a new alias, but dig a bit and it’s the same old back door to Canadian citizenship for money. Large amounts of money that eventually finds its way into government members pockets.  I was surprised and very disappointed to read articles on FB VisionPEI, and their knowledgeable members. What do we have to do to stop this unending greed of politicians. Many of us thought when King became premier things would be cleaned up and real transparency become the norm. While I admit I’m slowing down, I’m not so slow that I failed state the following. Why are we surprised or disappointed with the King minority government, they are just one of the two old party’s. One of the two old party’s involved up to their eyeballs in the PNP scandals. What really is very disappointing are the inaction of the two opposition party’s especially the Greens and Peter Bevan Baker! Where is the outrage, the indignity, and the the questions to these never ending scandals? Even Compass made mention on tonight’s news hour, that was a surprise too! King has done nothing worth mentioning since coming to power, lots of smiles, handshakes claims of collaboration, corn boils etc. He avoided the Irving land purchase, and now he is silent on this latest outrage? Maybe it’s time for the opposition party’s to challenge his record! God Bless and keep reading.

We Missed the Bus????

Much of what our leaders do makes little or no sense! We have our Prime Minister campaigning for re-election actually pretending to be riding on a bus. Here on PEI we have a limited transit system claiming they need to replace the aging fleet of buses. The PEI dept of Education are in the process of purchasing some 40 or more new school buses. Besides this we have four federal leaders all vying to win the election. The one major topic they are all promoting is the environment, the carbon tax, pollution, and that of cutting emissions! Did none of those so called smart leaders not see an opportunity on PEI to demonstrate their commitment. Did our local leaders not also see a wonderful opportunity to promote a healthy society. Why did we not purchase clean electric vehicles, better for the air and certainly better for our children. Well, their excuse, the electric vehicles are too expensive, so we are getting diesel buses, more of the same old same old. Climate change is not a maybe or might be issue, it’s real and if buying electric transportation is a part of the answer, then surely it will be far more expensive in the long run not to purchase clean technology. Instead of arguing over the cost of the carbon tax, do the right thing and reduce carbon in any and all ways possible. I don’t know how big a reduction in carbon electric school buses and city transit buses would make. Nevertheless, it would make a difference in the air quality, thus reduce emissions in our environment. We know we are going to pay at some point in the future. Right now, it’s just a case of politicians being more concerned with being re-elected than with the future of our children. We have really missed the bus on this one! God Bless and keep reading.

A Little Sunday Humour

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, “Now don’t get mad at me… I know we’ve been friends for a long time but I just can’t think of your name. I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please tell me what your name is.” Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, “How soon do you need to Know?”
SENIOR DRIVING As a senior citizen was driving down the motorway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife’s voice urgently warning him, ” Vernon , I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on the Trans Canada Highway. Please be careful!” “Hell,” said Vernon , “It’s not just one car. It’s hundreds of them!”
DRIVING Two elderly women were out driving in a large car – both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to major crossroad. The stop light was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself “I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.” After a few more minutes, they came to another major junction and the light was red again. Again, they went right through. The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous. At the next junction, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!” Mildred turned to her and said, “Oh! Am I driving?”
God Bless and Drive safe

A good read, that includes in its many items a Nuclear Submarine

CHAPTER XXI ARMAGEDDON by Frederick Rodgers
My latest book, a work of fiction, and a story based in sci fi, but with many touches of the real world woven into the pages. When I completed writing this book I did not at first realize the many real world events I had fitted into what I believe is a unique and exciting story. Rather than continue to blow my own horn I will instead share one of my readers comments. I think it captures the total concept of my tale.
Review by: Syrphian on Jan. 10, 2015 :
I really enjoyed reading this book! It is a great story with many twists and turns while giving you something profound to think about. The author has a real talent and I believe a future in fiction. The book starts off interesting right from page one with the big mystery in the sand! The author’s writing style is free-flowing which makes it easy to read. This gives the reader a more pleasurable reading experience while with some author’s styles it is more like a text book experience than a novel. I believe that this book has film potential, too.
Somehow he combined a whiskey bottle, time travel, Hunter River Prince Edward Island, a Naval submarine, Jesus, complex machinery, a spy, a world terrorist crisis, the Vatican, Islam, Adam & Eve and a great mystery story all in one book! You have to read it to see what I mean – you will not be disappointed as it is well worth it.
So, in summary, a ‘good read’ as they say… I enjoyed it from page one until the final page. I must admit that the ending was a surprise as I figured that it would conclude the way I thought it should. I am sure that is what the author wanted me to believe. The actual ending was rather different, and a complete and thought-provoking surprise. A very clever ending indeed!
I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a good story, well-written, exciting and a pleasure to read. You will not be disappointed and you will be wanting more from this author when you finish this book!
__________________________________________
So there you have it folks, all that remains is for you to read it. It can be ordered on-line at Amazon.ca, price is (approx $14) and as an Ebook at http://www.smashwords.com for only $1.99. God Bless and keep reading

The cost of our four liberal MPs?

For the many months of Trudeau’s time as Prime Minister of Canada we have been subjected to scandals, streams of no answers, dodging questions to outright lying and broken promises. Here on PEI we have four Liberal MPs who have supported and backed up everything their boss has claimed. Are these the kind of politician we islanders should support in this election? I think not, indeed I’d seriously question what these four men have actually done for Islanders over the last many years? We should definitely consider what they have cost the tax payers over the same period. I have no idea of their real costs, (they are careful to keep a lid on that) but I am sure they are very high.  If we total their salaries, expenses, office staff and operation of same. Extra pay for sitting on committees, cabinet minister salary, travel and vehicles, photo ops, credit cards, apartments in Ottawa, pensions and severances and probably several other claims I have missed. Without going overboard, I’d estimate each MP has or will cost us approximately one million dollars per year. That figure alone is quite staggering but imagine if we calculate that cost multiplied per number of years they have been in office.  It would total more than enough to wipe out our Provincial deficit, plus go a long way to providing some very much need services. I sincerely hope voters will give my comments serious consideration on Election Day before placing X on the ballot. My personal view is this, it’s time for change. By that, I don’t mean flipping from liberal to PC, I mean real change. I truly hope and pray that we will elect green candidates in the upcoming election. We really can’t afford four more years of liberal failure. We certainly cannot  afford to pay the astronomical costs of these four do nothing members.  Vote Green,               God Bless and keep reading.

It’s not our fault????

‘8Yesterday’s letter to the editor in the Journal Pioneer 10th Sept 2019, was borderline childish. Leah Jane Hayward, President of Provincial PEI NDP Party, in her letter she blamed everyone but the NDP! Her letter began by blaming the Guardian Newspaper, claiming their polling facts were not accurate. She then posted her version of the facts, facts that I found very questionable. Then she went on to blame Elizabeth May Leader of the Federal Green Party. Not sure what Ms May was supposed to be guilty of, she didn’t poach the New Brunswick NDPers. Finally Ms Hayward blames one radical member of her party for spreading false information. Of announcing members names without their knowledge or permission. In other words it was everybody else to blame not her or the NDP? Sounds a bit like the sort of thing one would hear in the school playground. It wasn’t me Miss, honest it was Leah Jane, she made me do it!!!. Reminds me of the words to an old song “why is everybody always picking on me” Sorry Ms Hayward you are in politics, it’s time to grow up and act like an adult. God Bless and keep reading

HMS Ganges Hospital—- Patient Care?????

The Ganges Naval Hospital

HMS Ganges was a Boys Naval Training Base. The recruits were on average 15 year olds. We never for moment imagined what we had let ourselves in for by joining the navy! Nevertheless, while the training was tough and punishments harsh we learned so much in that long hard year. Experiences we would forever carry with us for the rest of our lives. I have written much about Ganges, however this is one part of the training that took me longer to understand. It was one aspect of training not all boys would experience. In all walks of life there are always those who are lazy and seek to dodge work. No one ever got away with being lazy or work dodging at Ganges. But if one could fake being sick a few days, hospital might be a nice respite from training. These unsuspecting boys would soon learn, Like everything else at Ganges the sick bay was no place for a slacker!
Hospital at HMS Ganges!
Around October 1955 I was suffering from a nasty virus and was admitted to the hospital. Hospital admittance was often a target of boys looking for a few days in bed! The sick bay was usually full of boys with thermometers in their mouths, hoping they had a temperature. There were many methods employed by the boys to raise their temperatures. Some said using toothpaste under the tongue worked? Others when the SBA (Sick Bay Attendants)weren’t looking held their thermometer against the radiator. Few if any of these tactics worked, the SBAs were well aware of these malingerers. In my case no subterfuge was required, I was genuinely sick. Nevertheless, the thought of staying in bed all day, and having my meals served was an inviting prospect even when ill. Once I was installed in the ward in my clean and comfortable bed I relaxed. A nurse, took my temperature and gave me some foul tasting liquid to swallow. I then lay back enjoying the moment and the quiet ambience of my surroundings. At 1130 hrs dinner arrived (at Ganges there was no lunch, it was (breakfast-dinner-supper) boys in the ward who served us in bed. I didn’t give much thought to those serving, it just seemed to be what was expected. When they finished serving us they sat at a long table in the centre of the ward to eat. By noon there was more activity, the same boys that had served dinner were now collecting the trays and washing the dishes. By 1300hrs the ward was shipshape and once more quiet. The boys who had worked the dinner hour were now doing a variety of jobs, cleaning windows, dusting bed frames, cleaning bed tables etc. None of the working boys were allowed to lay on their beds during the day. Supper that evening was a repeat of dinner and washing up. At roughly 1930 hrs the boys doing all the work were now dressing in their pyjamas and readying for bed. Up to that point I hadn’t realized they were patients in the ward.. At 2100 hrs it was lights out, the nurse came around to check on me. The medicine must have made me sleepy because I was out like a light. Suddenly I was awakened by the harsh white lights of the ward and the hum of activity around me! It was 0500 hrs, and the boys who I now realized were called up patients, were busily moving all the beds from one side of the ward to the other. Beds were slid in between my bed and those on my right and left. Once the other half of the  floor, oops I mean deck was cleared two boys sprinkled old tea leaves. Two more then swept the whole area, and I realized the tea leaves were to keep the dust down. Next boys using tongue depressors flicked globs of polish unto the deck and other boys with polishing mops worked it into the wooden deck boards. Finally the up patients vigorously polished the deck with soft mops. Once the shine was approved by the head nurse the process began all over again by moving everything to the other side of the ward. By the time this operation was complete it was 0700 hrs, time to wash brush teeth and shave(shaving was mandatory whether one needed to or not). Once again the up patients dashed around the ward handing out bowls of water to us bed patients to wash with. No time was wasted and by 0730 hrs breakfast was being served. Hospital food was no better than what was served in the main mess hall. My tray consisted of a mug of tea two rounds of toast and on my plate a kipper. I’m reasonably sure, as sick as I was, I still looked healthier than that kipper. At 0800 hrs the nurses and SBAs were checking on the bed patients, temperatures, medicines, injections, none were particularly gentle or sympathetic. Our beds were then straightened, tidied and we were told to lay still and not mess them up. On the dot of 0900 hrs the senior medical team arrived, a doctor, matron and two nurses . We were told to lay at attentions in our beds, They stopped at each bed to check the chart, perhaps ask a boy a question. I was now becoming aware this was a tense and fearful moment for each bed patient. If the doctor declared you fit enough to get up, well, you became a dreaded up patient. I also noticed the up patients all stood tall trying to look very healthy. They were hoping and praying they could be returned to duty, and when a boy did received his discharge his face beamed with relief. I was now well aware of the fate that lay in store for me, four days later I became an up patient. Finally I was discharged and very happy to return to my division and training. I had just learned that even when sick the training continued. I decided I’d never be ill again whilst at Ganges. However, a warning for those malingering sailors the sick bay was never going to be worth the effort. Ganges did indeed turn Boys into men

A Little Weekend Hurricane Humour!!!!!!

Sharing Brownies

A little fellow got into a heated argument with his sister over who was going to get the last brownie. Their mother, sensing it was brewing into a full-blown argument, intervened and asked, “What do you think Jesus would do?”

“That’s easy!” said the young fellow, “Jesus would just break it and make 5000 more – and he didn’t even have a sister!”

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

GOLFING ET AL

Saturday morning I got up early, dressed quietly, made my lunch, grabbed my clubs, slipped quietly into the garage and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph.

I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad throughout the day. I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. There I cuddled up to my wife’s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, ‘The weather out there is terrible.

My loving wife of 20 years replied, ‘Can you believe my stupid husband is out golfing in that crap?

I still don’t know to this day if she was joking, but I have stopped golfing.

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Drinking and Golf!
……He no longer plays golf either!!!!

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”

“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.

“Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?” the man asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”

“Well,” said the man, “I’m not going to give you money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a hot shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”

The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you
for doing that?”

The man replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and golf.”

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Wi-Fi Password (Sounds like someone I know)

While he was visiting, my father asked for the password to our Wi-Fi. “It’s taped under the modem,” I told him.

After three failed attempts to log on, he asked, “Am I spelling this right? T-A-P-E-D-U-N-D-E-R-T-H-E-M-O-D-E-M?”

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Wife!

After my wife died, I couldn’t even look at another woman for 10 years. But now that I’m out of jail, I can honestly say it was worth it !

Got an e-mail today from a “bored housewife 32, looking for some action!” I’ve sent her my ironing. That’ll keep her busy!

The wife’s been hinting she wants something black and lacy for her birthday. So I’ve got her a pair of football boots!

My wife asked if she could have a little peace and quiet while she cooked the dinner, so I took the batteries out of the smoke alarm!

My wife apologized for the first time ever today. She said she’s sorry she ever married me!

My wife said I needed to be more in touch with my feminine side, so I crashed the car, burnt the dinner and ignored her all day for no reason!

Things turned really ugly at my house last night. The wife removed her makeup!

My wife shouted at me this morning for not opening the car door for her. I would have, but I was too busy swimming to the surface!

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Severe Thunderstorm

A passenger jet was suffering through a severe thunderstorm. As the passengers were being bounced around by the turbulence, a young woman turned to a minister sitting next to her and with a nervous laugh asked, “Reverend, you’re a man of God. Can’t you do something about this storm?”

To which he replied, “Lady, I’m in sales, not management.”

God Bless and I hope you are all battened down for the storm!!! you may lose power and then no water to drink, so be ready ——-
