… and Republicans like him?

They are unquestionable, prime, grade A assholes.

Yup. These morons are even more partisan than the Harperites.

Democracy sucks, eh Tea Brains?

Obama

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Unscripted.
Cares.
Warm.
Praised by GOP Governor Christie.
Firm leadership.
Sincere.

Words written around this pic today.

The War of 1812, WHO THE HELL CARES, edition!

Will someone PLEASE tell the war-lovin’ CPC that a $30 million investment to “celebrate a war that happened 200 years ago and didn’t even involved anyone named a “Canadian” is NOT a good use of public money???

Please!

¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨

The Harperites have decided to cut all non-Christian prison chaplains.

Why did they stop there? Qualified psychologists and other true professionals would do a far better job inside the walls than some smarmy priest!

So Obama didn’t seem to be on top of his game the other night and Romney had an exceptional debate. Big deal. What percentage of American viewers can we say actually swung their vote to Romney’s side because of the debate?

0.02% perhaps?

Yeah. Big deal. Though some disagree.

No matter. Even if Obama lose more than sliver of support, he’ll regain it over the coming weeks and STILL win about 40 states.

===================================================================================

Yup. This is me.

Hey!

Republicans!

It. Is. Constitutional

Move on.

Or did your Mommas not teach you that flogging a dead horse won’t get you anywhere?

Hmmm?

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.

So Santorum wins…

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

… two Bible-belt states… and some folks are surprised? Really?

On the radio this morning, I hear him say to a crowd after the wins:

“The most common thing I have people saying to me is that “I am praying for you”.

…and the audience yells “Amen!”

Yeah.

And there are still some who are surprised that he wins states like Alabama and Mississippi?

Personally, I love it and wish him all the best (won’t be, uh, “praying” for him though :)). A Santorum nomination would ensure an Obabma victory this Fall… non-foaming-at-the-mouth-cross-waving-bible-thumping Republicans would stay at home in droves!

Go IN-SanItYorum, GO!

Obama goes ahead with a privacy…

Monday, February 27th, 2012

…Bill of Rights in the States while here in Canada? Well, Vic wants to see it all!

This is all about the consumer’s rights to privacy. The American legislation proposes a “do not track” option that would allow internet users to easily control which sites are permitted to collect personal information. It would effectively limit the monitoring capability of giants like Facebook and Google and provide for legal remedies in the case of violations.

The White House on Thursday proposed a “bill of rights” that would give consumers greater online privacy protection and could eventually give the government greater powers to police Internet firms such as Google Inc and Facebook.

While the privacy bill of rights does not impose any immediate new obligations on online companies, President Barack Obama said it was part of a broader plan to give Americans more control over how their personal data was used on the Internet.

“American consumers can’t wait any longer for clear rules of the road that ensure their personal information is safe online,” said Obama.

“As the Internet evolves, consumer trust is essential for the continued growth of the digital economy. That’s why an online privacy Bill of Rights is so important.”

Internet giants such as Google and Facebook have been accused of quietly tracking their customers’ online activities and then using that data to generate advertising revenue

Meanwhile, here in the Great White InterWeb, the political will to do something likewise is definitely not there and in fact is diametrically opposed to the feeling in the States that unwarranted access to private information is, in fact, unwarranted.

Amazingly, our Privacy Commissioners are ahead of the wave… too bad the Feds won’t listen.

In other news…the Crocs folks are expanding their product line. Woo hoo!

Niwot, CO, United States (AHN) – Crocs, the maker of the popular clunky, multicolored, bright, foam clogs, is expanding its brand to include accessories, eyewear and apparel.

The Niwot, Colorado, based company is launching a line of Crocs-branded accessories, which include hats, bags, backpacks, socks and gloves.

Paramount, a sports licensee, is selling collegiate and Major League Baseball licensed footwear for the iconic Crocs brand.

The Crocs brand will branch out into children’s apparel, set to launch in April, through an agreement with A Group.

Goody. More ugliness.

… about Tim Thomas being an idiot.

I don’t usually copy and paste an entire text, but this letter by former Chicago Bear Tim Wrightman is an example of how Thomas should have handled the Obama invitation.

Class. 100% Pure class.

I hope someone shows this to the Bruin Goalie…

Wrightman puts politics aside for White House reunion

October 06, 2011|By Fred Mitchell, Tribune reporter

Here is Wrightman’s message:

“Why I’m going to the White House: Out of all the players from the ’85 Bears arriving on October 7th, I would probably say I am the most conservative. I live in the reddest of red states (Idaho) and I make a living with guns (owner of Lazy Bear Ranch)…I am also not a fan of the policies of the current President; however this is a celebration for the achievement of a great football team not a political rally.

“I mean, did you really think it was appropriate for Marlon Brando to not accept the Oscar? I can differentiate between celebrating our team, the President and the Institution of the Presidency. Of course I played on the ‘smart side’ of the line of scrimmage. This is the Bears’ once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has been given a second chance. Some people don’t realize our initial trip in 1986 was canceled because of the Challenger space shuttle accident. I think it was a classy thing for Obama to right the misfortune of our team. Besides, the White House is not President Obama’s house, it’s the people’s house.

“Some of my more notable teammates have stated various reasons they will not attend…and they have every right to have their own opinion and reasons for not going. ‘I’m not going because they didn’t invite our wives…’ Well, would you take the wife you had when we won or the newest one? ‘It was 25 years ago, let it go…’ Will you stop doing car commercials that say you were a Super Bowl Champ? And so what if it was 25 years ago …If winning the Super Bowl is so easy, how come the Bears haven’t won since?

“Further, I’m not so arrogant to think that by going to the White House people are going to believe I endorse the President. Nor do I believe my invitation will cause people to vote for President Obama just because I visited the White House. This is a great opportunity for me to see my fellow teammates one more time and as a conservative I never take myself out of the game. I always want an opportunity to discuss and to debate my positions. You never know whose mind you might change and decisions you may influence. Being together as a team and a country is the only way we can get through our current predicament… GO BEARS!”
