Politicians!!!! Give Us a Break!!!!

haRPER NOSEIts hard to know where to start today!!! but lets begin with Herr Harper on the campaign trail in New Brunswick. In the last election Harper held rallies where his body guards (thugs) denied entry to those they considered undesirables. Amongst these undesirables were a group of veterans in Halifax NS. and later a group of students in Fredericton NB.  One might have thought Herr Harper would change his tactics this time around, especially considering all the fallout from the Duffy Trial. However you would be wrong, yesterday in Fredericton his thugs once again turned away a group of veterans. Read the whole story attached.

Battle trauma advocate: ‘I just wanted to ask him one thing about holistic care.’


On another political subject I almost choked on my cornflakes this morning after reading an article in the Guardian (16thAug). On the front page there is an article in which Duffy asked the PMO to use more PEI-isms in the proposed speech he was to make on CBC Compass. Duffy asked that the wording be in more down home colloquialisms.

Turn to page two and there is an article by Wayne Easter (Lib Malpeque MP and supporter of Bill C-51) in which he claims outrage and is incensed. He goes on to say “it shows a total disrespect for islanders”.

” I’m insulted as any Islander that they would try to manipulate the language in order to have a better sell on the message to islanders. I think its just wrong.easter

And that folks comes from the islander who pronounces Agriculture as aggie culture. Glass houses and all that!!! I know politics is not really funny, but sometimes we just have to laugh.

God Bless and keep reading.
