Merry Christmas everybody. I hope you are all releaxing enjoying the day.
Meanwhile, a scant few blocks from my home and right where my daughter was kind enough to go to Timmies and get me a coffee, the cities of Langley and Surrey celebrated the festive season as only they can do, with a special down home touch.
When Jean Charest was running for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party I remember a line in his speech that went like this : The Bloc is a Crock!
Charest was ahead of his time as today, Bernard Landry left the door open for his return to politics to lead the party into the next election.
Today he is 76 and when the election happens he will be 78!
Compared to him, my friend John Cummins was a veritable teenager.
In BC We have an expression that goes like this:only in BC Politics would something as crazy as this happen. Well not so fast.
The next Quebec provincial election will happen before the federal election and should Landry lead the Bloc he could actually campaign against Marios given that he has come out against the secular charter she intends to use as the corner stone of her election platform.
Insanity prevails in Colorado elementary school as 6 year old Hunter Yelton got suspended from school for kissing another six year old girl on the hand during class.
The Superintendent of schools ( obviously a moron) suspended the kid and labeled it as sexual harassment.
6 years old and the kid is tagged as a sexual harasser.
It came about because other kids in the class complained to the teacher ( not the girl) who escalated the heinous crime.
Whatever happened to a good old fashioned meeting between both sets of parents and the kids to explain that this kind of behavior was wrong? (should the little girl actually be afraid of Hunter you might find that out during that discussion)
Whatever happened to good old fashion common sense?
Why are morons in charge of school systems. ( this one should have been sent home himself)
The story, due to the stupidity of the aforementioned bureaucrat has gone viral and the school has since recanted and Hunter can return to school.
Justin Trudeau walks into a Royal Bank to cash a cheque. As he approaches the cashier he says, “Good morning, Ma’am, could you please cash this cheque for me?
Cashier:”It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?”
Trudeau:”Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am Justin Trudeau, the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada!!!!”
Cashier: “Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the CIDC legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.”
Trudeau: Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”
Cashier: “I am sorry, Mr. Trudeau, but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”
Trudeau:” Mon dieu. I am urging you, please, to cash this cheque.”
Cashier: “Look Mr. Trudeau, here is an example of what we can do.
One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his cheque.
Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his cheque.
So, Mr. Trudeau, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you?
Trudeau stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, “Honestly, my mind is a total blank…there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do. I really don’t have a clue.”
Cashier: “Will that be large or small bills, Mr. Trudeau…?
Fyi : I did not write this but thought it was real enough to share…
