Federal government has legislation drafted…

… The would prevent Alfredsson from ever leaving Ottawa!

Seriously, while I would feel a little sorry for some of my buds who will be utterly gutted if their hero leaves Kanata, I will also feel a bit of schadenfreude…. I do remember their glee when Mats left the Leafs… (86)

Friday miscellany…

… no particular theme edition…

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

A big problem with social media is that it gives idiots, racists, bigots, misogynists, etc., a tool to spew their ignorant venom.

And such was the case the other night after Joel Ward scored in OT to knock the Bruins put of the NHL playoffs.

Assholes.

A successful Wildrose candidate blamed urban Alberta for the PC win the other day.

Bikman said Tuesday: “I think that these social issues that came up during the last week and the PC’s ability to exploit them, caused some concern in the voters within urban areas, at least, because they didn’t really understand the issues, they didn’t really understand that there was an aspect of free speech.”

Bikman also said rural people “possess more common sense, a least that’s my experience.

“The people who make their living off the land really seem to understand the way nature really works.”

Yup, Myrtle, you country-folk have way more sense than those city-folk with all that learnin’ and stuff!

LOL!

Lots of email phishing going on these days. Even if you know the sender, think twice about clicking on links if something seems not quite right…

I wonder where that phish has gone.
You did love it so. You looked after it like a son.
And it went wherever I did go.
Is it in the cupboard?
Yes! Yes! No!…
Wouldn’t you like to know? It was a lovely little phish.
And it went wherever I did go.
It’s behind the sofa!
Where can that phish be?
It is a most elusive phish!
And it went wherever I did go.
Ooooh, phishy, phishy, phishy phish!
A-phish, a-phish, a-phish, a-phishy, ooooh.
Ooooh, phishy, phishy, phishy phish!
That went wherever I did go.

Out of the WTF is THIS file:

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death, local media is claiming.

The controversial new law is claimed to be part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

I’m at a loss on this one, kids…
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨
And another one from the WTF is THIS files:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was shouted down during a debate in question period Thursday on the Afghanistan mission for suggesting the NDP – not yet in existence – didn’t even support Canada’s military involvement in the Second World War.

NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair was asking Harper if he intended to extend the Afghanistan mission past 2014 after a Postmedia News report Wednesday said U.S officials had asked Canadian special forces to stay past the withdrawal date.

The prime minister responded the NDP has a pacifistic ideology “regardless of circumstances” and his government would make the right decision for Afghanistan’s security.

“In 1939, the NDP leader didn’t even want to support the fight against Hitler,” Harper said, before being drowned out by cat calls.

“CCF, NDP, same difference,” Harper responded curtly.

As my brother pointed out on Facebook:

If memory serves me correctly, the NDP didn’t support Canada’s involvement in WWI, supported a policy of Canadian neutrality in both the War of 1812 AND the Seven Years’ War – what a bunch of granola eating, tree hugging, whale protecting pacifists!

Mr. Harper is in clear need of a remedial history class. What a kook!

Even though I’m not a fan, congrats to the Ottawa Senators for a great season… the future looks brighter for these guys than for mine

Speaking of the Leafs, there are rumours going around that Roberto Luongo has identified the Buds as one of the teams he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause in his (over-inflated) contract to play for. After careful consideration of the pros and cons, I have the following advice for Brian Burke:
DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
IT WOULD BE ONE OF THE WORST DECISIONS THAT YOU HAVE MADE… AND YOU HAVE QUITE A COLLECTION GOING ALREADY!!!!
STAY. WAY. FROM. LUONGO!
I think Reimer needs to be given another chance, plus there are some great young goalies (e.g., Ben Scrivens) that should be developed. The Leafs would have to give up the fifth pick and/or a top prospect like Jake Gardiner.
ARE YOU LISTENING, BRIAN????????????

Finally – from the news this morning… might Canadians FINALLY be paying attention?

An NDP surge following the party’s leadership convention has put them in a statistical tie with the federal Conservatives, a new poll suggests.

The Nanos Research monthly tracking poll puts the Conservatives at 34.7 per cent and the New Democrats at 32.4 per cent of committed voters, within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The Liberals are at 23.3 per cent, according to the poll, the Greens at 4.2 per cent and the Bloc Québécois at 3.9 per cent of committed voters. Almost 19 per cent of voters said they were undecided.

The poll suggests the Conservatives’ popularity slipped one percentage point — well within the margin of error — from a previous poll of 1,203 Canadians conducted in February, while the NDP are up 7.4 percentage points.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s leadership numbers, however, appear to have dropped dramatically. While 31.7 per cent of those polled two months ago said he was most trustworthy party leader, that number fell to 20 per cent in April.

Nanos is reliable. Let’s see if this is the beginning of a wonderful trend as Harper’s “trust” numbers plummet even further!

Jacques Demers traded to the Senators

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

I’m a bit surprised to hear that the former Hab coach is now a Senator.

I wonder if he’ll be able to pull Dany Heatley back into the fold.

Eh? Oh. Not THOSE Senators….

Ooops. My bad.

I guess he is qualified. He has experience dealing with a has-been hockey team. Now he gets to work with has-been political hacks.

Arsenal returns for real on Wednesday!

Monday, August 11th, 2008

A Cesc Fabregas who is not 100% is still better than 95% of players in world at full power.

The Gunners’ 2008 campaign kicks off in earnest on Wednesday as they go up against former English coach’s Steve McLaren’s side FC Twente in the Champions League qualifier.

Looking forward to the season. After what Arsene and the boyz did last year, with some very low expectations, I see at least one set of silverware in the future.

Hate the Reds almost as much as I hate the Sens.

Go Gunners! (347)
