Friday the 13th and this blog is being written by Jason, that’s creepy. I have an urge to slash up some politicians…with my keyboard. I’m hoping it’s going to be a good weekend. I don’t know about the rest of you maritimers but I’m getting pretty tired of this December-like weather in the month of May. The temperature has been dropping down close to zero at night all week. Global warming my a$$…
The NDP’s sweep of Quebec has many critics saying that a lot of the candidates are ill-prepared to take office. Some would even say that the only requirement to run for Jack Layton’s team was to have a pulse. Not so. Ruth Ellen Brosseau was smart enough to campaign in Vegas, and still win the Berthier-Maskinonge riding. Many party faithful say she would’ve won by a landslide had she actually visited the place. The newly elected NDP members from Quebec met her at customs to congratulate her, posed for a photo op, and then escorted her to her new riding.
Things are not so rosy for the Bloc, who were all but wiped out in last week’s election. First they lost their leader Gilles Duceppe, who resigned after their crushing defeat. Then they found out that their offical party status had been revoked because of too few elected members. This means their funding has been slashed, less time to speak during question period, and no more access to the government facilities as this elected member found out.
This picture is so nice I got to use it twice. Apparently the Osama
brand fish food has been recalled from the store shelves only days
after it hit the market. Many pet owners are filing lawsuits against
the company, citing the product has been killing their fish due to its
high lead content. My only question is, why doesn’t someone slap
some of it between two slices of bread, call it a tuna sandwich and
feed it to George W.? Have a great weekend y’all.
