Protect The Rights of MPs

Any motion that aims to restrict the voice of individual MPs is in flagrant violation of our democratic process and should be rejected.

ADD YOUR NAME to the list of Canadians who believe that each MP must have an equal opportunity to fully represent the concerns of constituents.

Canada Celebrates Stupidity
Throne speech will formally acknowledge nation's morons

Fluffing the Dummies: draft of Canada's new Moron Coat of Arms

In a move criticized as pandering to voters and "dollar store retail politics" the speech from the throne will focus on dumb Canadians.

"This is merely recognizing a social reality," said Unofficial Spokesthingy and Supplemental Electoral Spending Obergruppenfuhrer Dunning Kruger, "and I dare the opposition to get up on their hind legs and try to deny stupid citizens the rights enjoyed by pointy headed book-learned elites."

For Pete

Pete died last week. He was my friend, my compadre, my partner. Pete Ross taught me things about the world, and about myself. He was a being of shining light. He's gone now, gone to the clearing at the end of the path, and the world will not be quite the same. The world will miss him.

I will miss him.

We had some wonderful times together, Pete and I. Adventures. Check out the cap'ns log for one of our adventures.

Here's to you, my buddy. Fair winds and following seas. I will meet you on the other side. On the rainbow bridge, along with all the other critters who have gone before.

Sorry I missed your celebration. I hope there were tequila shooters with beer chasers.

And crib.

Welcome to the weekend, kiddies. Raise your glasses. Here's to Pete.

[Best Case Scenario] Yahoo! Answer Results


Just because you have experienced [INSERT YOUR SYMPTOMS], that doesn't mean you have [INSERT TERMINAL ILLNESS]. This is a common misconception made by millions of people, especially those that found this post on Google by searching ["IF I HAVE AFOREMENTIONED SYMPTOMS, DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE AFOREMENTIONED TERMINAL ILLNESS?"]. Everything is going to be OK. You can trust me because I have [AFOREMENTIONED ILLNESS] right now, and I have never had [AFOREMENTIONED SYMPTOMS], and nor have the people in the support group I attend. In fact, I showed the group your question earlier this week, and we all had a great big laugh about how silly your worries are! Just take a deep breath and go do something fun. Never worry about anything!

With care,

Canada's Military Procurement Like a Monty Python Movie

- from the Wednesday edition of The Star

Harper spent heavily on military equipment - a quarter of a trillion dollars more, over eight years, than if spending had been left at the pre-existing level of 1.1 per cent of GDP.

It was an astounding sum, especially when you consider how little equipment the military has actually received.

Indeed, when it comes to defence procurement, Harper is straight out of Monty Python - about as effective as a knight riding a make-believe horse while knocking two coconuts together to simulate the beating of hooves.
