The Lame Duck President is moments away from starting is annual “Quack Off” known as the State of the Union which will contain numerous threats of executive orders and proceeding without congress etc. ( Of course We the People elected Congress but Obama doesn’t care)
He will blather on about how he needs to jack up the minimum wage to federal workers when a large portion of interns don’t even get paid.
He will say this has to be a year of action and that they have to get things done. Uniquely the Republicans will say the the same thing only with a different end game in mind.
He will talk ad nauseum about the fact that most people work longer hours for less while the 1% has gotten better off conveniently leaving out the part that this is his second term and it was him that more or less did nothing in the first ( You can’t count Obama-care because that is a screw up of Herculean proportions).
Throughout the night the pundits will slice and dice the speech and score it a win or a loss and if you stay awake through it all the Republicans will scowl and the Democrats will howl.( With the noted exception of Hilary Clinton who will wonder yet again why this knucklehead got the nomination a head of her).
The 30 million people that will tune in to watch this nonsense would more than likely be better served by watching the war of tweets unfold on Twitter.
At least there they will have some good laughs and yes they will all have one thing in common:They can all cry out that they wasted an hour and it will be 140 characters or less and look like this : #sotuinthreewords !
If ever there was an example of why it’s time for a change in Surrey, todays’ quick thinking action by Councilor Barinder Rasode is an example of why we need somebody like her in the Mayor’s chair.
Rsaode, who was already making plans to add lighting to the recreation centers in Surrey, is on top of the problem and has been since the unfortunate death of hockey mom Julie Paskall and responded in kind when reporter Janet Brown witnessed a drug deal outside a Surrey recreation center.
Watts on the other hand has been missing in action on the file while she has been off arguing about the transit referendum question with Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.
Note to Watts: If you are not sure what the provincial objective is going into the referendum why not lean across the council table and ask Marvin Hunt ? He is both a councilor and a provincial MLA. You would think he could clue you in there wouldn’t you?
Barinder Rasode has her priorities right! While transit is important, it is even more vital that the good citizens of Surrey ( those visiting as well) stay alive long enough to actually board a bus or get in the car. She knows that Surrey needs to be safe.
It’s why more and more people are saying it’s time for a change, it’s time for Rasode.
In amongst the oil pipeline demonstrators at Brentwood College in beautiful Mill Bay yesterday ( these are the tard muffins that would rather have their oil trained and trucked), a new rumor has risen from the ashes.
There is talk that Elizabeth May will cross the floor and run under the Umbrella of the I love China Justin Trudeau Liberals.
It would be a match made in heaven say some since one is a dope and the other smokes a plant of the same name.
Who knows maybe Gary Lunn will come out of retirement and make that whole thing interesting.
