These are hilarious!

Seems that some Americans are so mad about the SC giving the thumbs up to Obama’s health care reforms, that they want to move here!

Question – is there anything we can do to keep these yahoos OUT???

1.

I’m moving to Canada. Obviously the United States doesn’t know what they are doing anymore. This used to be a great country… Pretty sad.

2.

The supreme court upheld Obama Care. That’s it. I’m moving to Canada!

3.

I’m moving to Canada, the United States is entirely too socialist.

4.

#SCOTUS holds up free healthcare for everyone?! Screw this commie country, I’m moving to #Canada #whoswithme

5.

The idea of seriously moving to Canada seems very real to me now thanks to Obamacare.

Dean, Dean, Dean (redux)

Do you hear the sound of that shovel hitting bedrock?

You have nowhere to go but up, big guy!

OTTAWA — Two donors to Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro’s 2008 election campaign have produced copies of cheques they say were reimbursements paid by a small electrical company owned by his cousin.

The cheques show the donors each received $1,050 from Deltro Electric Ltd. of Mississauga, Ont., two days before they made $1,000 donations to Del Mastro’s electoral district association in Peterborough.

The donors also produced copies of the personal cheques they sent to the riding association in September 2008.

The cheques could be key pieces of evidence should Elections Canada expand its ongoing investigation of Dean Del Mastro’s 2008 campaign expenses to the donations that funded them.

Under the Elections Act, it is a serious offence to conceal the real source of donations to an election campaign.

Deltro owner David Del Mastro has denied issuing any reimbursements to his cousin’s campaign contributors and says he only asked people to give voluntarily.

One of the cheques obtained by the Citizen is payable to a former Deltro employee who, earlier this month, signed a statutory declaration describing how Deltro staff were asked to enlist family and friends in the alleged reimbursement scheme.

David Del Mastro “advised me at that time that he wanted to make a large monetary donation to the re-election campaign of his cousin, Dean Del Mastro Member of Parliament,” the statement said.

“My employer assured me that if I would do so, my employer would cause his company, Deltro Electric Ltd. to reimburse me for the full sum of $1,000, plus a further bonus of $50, and that I would receive an income tax receipt for the donation.”

The alleged scheme was intended to circumvent the limit on political donations, the former employee said. The Conservative government lowered the limit to $1,100 through its 2006 centrepiece ethics legislation, the Federal Accountability Act.

The Mulcair posts I threw on here…

over the past few days were fun… kinda like the #Harperhistory or #tellviceverything tags.

A point that I was trying to make is that these attack ads that are the darlings of the CPC inter-election “strategy” are becoming laughable – even to many conservatives.

I have an idea! Maybe The Robot and his merry gang of attack dawgs should put their majority (have they clued into this yet?) government to good use and expend some of the excess energy put into these ridiculous examples of video vomit into something more useful to Canadians. Perhaps a forward thinking and insightful policy or two? Perhaps?

C’mon you guys. Everyone is laughing at you.

OC Transpo… stay classy

This incident where an OC Transpo driver refused to stop and let off a mom who was accidentally separated from her child is almost too appalling to be true.

But considering the number of witnesses and the fact that the police are involved, I suspect it may be.

I can see where a parent could easily get separated from a child on a crowded bus. Routes like the 94, 95, 97. etc are often packed like sardines thus making it difficult to get to an exit upon arrival at one’s stop. Unless you are carrying your child, he or she may not make it to the door in time. I’ve seen this “almost” happen quite a few times in my 15 years of riding the big red limos.

Add this to the tendency of many an operator to get away from the stop as quickly as possible with little regard for those customers who are struggling to get to a door, and a scenario like this is almost expected.

Operators need to understand that it is the service to the public that is paramount and not their eagerness to get to their next lay-up!
