Contest Update

Someone recently posted the following as Saddam's Occupation:

"Abu Ghraib Soap Retriever"

Mm.. Hrm.. bwahmm.. erhm... BWA HA HA HA HAHA HA!!!!! HEHEHEHEHE I dunno who posted this, because it was anonymous, but I find it DANG funny! hehehehehe!

Daily Recap

I had a fairly good day at work today. I met a pretty cool guy whose apartment room needed to be de-odorized. He just moved here from Vancouver this year. Right now he is unemployed, but his wife is a lawyer. He told me a little bit about what they have experience in the past five months, since arriving in Smithers. I really enjoyed his final outlook on life. Although he has trouble getting used to the slow pace of life here (ie everything closing at 6pm), and is getting sick of eating out in Smithers (Boston Pizza: the novelty soon wears off), he has been able to try a number of things he would never get the chance to do otherwise. For example, he recalled the time he went snow-shoeing. Also, he went ice-fishing for the first time ever, and went canoeing in a lake not long ago. It is difficult to do these things in Vancouver!

Conversely, I have lived in small northern towns all my life. All of those things that he mentioned are cool, but I have been there, done that. I find it fascinating to cruise Robson Street (yeah I know, it's touristy... I really mean Granville & Georgia). I love seeing hundreds of people driving around at 2:00 on a Thursday morning! There are more people on a Thursday morning on Robson Street than there are in all of Smithers*! I really enjoy the variety of food one can find in the lower mainland, not to mention the endless entertainment options**!

Hoepfully I get to see this guy again. I think that given time, we could get along really well and maybe even be friends. Isn't it fascinating the way people weave in and out of your life? Each one has a story. Go meet someone new this weekend.

*Okay, so this may not be factually correct, since there are six to seven thousand people in Smithers, but you get the point.
**And No, I don't mean THAT kind of entertainment. Geez Chappy, get your mind out of the gutter.

All I can say is....

I agree
Go read everything he wrote about the election.

The new term coined by Jardine Davies. Check out his blog here (or click the title of this post... will need to scroll down to see it I think).

Frank J comments again on Michael Moore

Fun facts about Michael Moore. Go read 'em
(Stanley Cup Ring to Misha for pointing this out)

Yeah... what he said...

The Monger puts into perspective essentailly what I feel right now, so go check out his post-election... er... post.

The Power of NBS

Since the post I submitted to the New Blog Showcase was put on their blog, my traffic has increased. Yesterday I had 14 visits and 55 page views, compared to Sundays' 4 & 7 respectively.
Thanks NBS!

And a note to all of my supposed "friends" out there: keep visiting, or I'll kick yer asses when I get to Manitoba (not to mention Coquitlam)!

Its true, its true

So yes, Nathan Cullen won Skeena/BV by a healthy 1200 votes. There were close races all over the place this year, and although I was disappointed last night, I am more optimistic today. After all, the NDP and Liberal's combined only total 154 seats! That is exactly half of the seats in Parliament, which means that the Conservatives, the Bloc, and the lone Independant candidate (in Surrey) combined can halt any stupid-ass legislation that Paul Martin decides to pass.

The chances of the Bloc and the Cons agreeing on anything is slim, but it is nice to know that the right has a voice this year.

Monday, June 28, 2004

Not so fast, CBC

CBC has still got Nathan Cullen as the winner of the riding, but with 85 of 244 polls reporting:
Nathan Cullen NDP 3676 36.7%
Andy Burton CON 3370 33.64%
Miles Richardson LIB 2333 23.29%

That is only three hundred votes! Maybe this thing ain't over yet!

Harvey Kicks Ass

Harvey, of Bad Example is my new best friend. He encouraged people to check out the contest. On the New Blog Showcase, Harvey makes the following comment:
Heh. This one's fun. Go look.

Thanks Harvey, and Welcome to my Blogroll! If only my REAL LIFE FRIENDS (Ahem) were as supportive!

Christian Heritage Party

I wish Rod Taylor had ran for the Conservatives. He would've won for sure.

CBC is messing with my head...

with 36 of 244 polls reporting:
Nathan Cullen NDP 1445 44.27%
Miles Richardson LIB 842 25.8%
Andy Burton CON 778 23.84%

29 of 244?

Nathan Cullen NDP 1100 44.16%
Miles Richardson LIB 670 26.9%
Andy Burton CON 596 23.93%

Sheesh, unbelievable. Good on ya, Nathan.

With 20 of 223 polls reporting...

In Skeena/BV:

Nathan Cullen NDP 605 39.52%
Miles Richardson LIB 448 29.26%
Andy Burton CON 401 26.19%

Now, that is only 10% of polls reported... so it is still early.
I need a drink.

*Sigh* My wish was not granted

Damn those liberals and their damn minority government (shakes fist in air mightily). BLECH! I can't believe that there are still so many people in this country that would vote Liberal. This country needs to give its collective head a shake.

In other news, it seems that Bulkley Valley/Skeena has elected the ND candidate, NAthan Cullen. That makes me want to curse a loud cursing, but I don't blame people as much for that. He ran a great campaign, he seems like an honest fellow, and Andy Burton did NOTHING. And I mean that... NOTHING. There was no reason for anyone to vote for him... what has he ever done? Was he even campaigning this year? I heard nothing from him at all, it was really sad.

Frank J fact-checks Farhenheit 9/11

Some are saying that Fahrenheit 9/11 set records for a documentary, being the first ever to debut in the number one spot and already having the highest gross for a documentary with $21.8 million over the weekend. I looked it up, though, and it is total bunk. If marginally staged events filmed for entertainment value is what makes a documentary, then Jackass the Movie actually set those records. It debuted at number one with a gross of $22.8 million. It also had less erroneous assertions than a Michael Moore documentary.

Bwa hahahahahah! Muahahaha! HEHEHEHE! Frank J. has done it again. I think I know what the new description for this blog will be...

Now for something a little more tragic

On Friday night, a co-worker of mine committed suicide. He took a .303 shotgun, pointed it at his chin, and blew his head clear off of his body. The Janitorial supervisor for Apex was worried on Sunday morning when the guy didn't show up for his shift on Saturday night. On Sunday morning, the supervisor, as well as the man's grandmother, found him dead on the floor at his home. The man, Robert Joseph, had worked for Apex for five or six years. I worked with him a couple of times, the most recent time was when we cleaned the Scotiabank Mall together (about a month ago). He seemed fine at the time, but many people I have talked to said that he was mired in depression. He didn't drink a lot, didn't do drugs (as far as I know), and had a good, steady job. He was also a hard worker. It is really sad that he decided to end it.

Last night I cleaned the Super Valu in Smithers, since it hadn't been done on Saturday. It was a rather surreal experience, in that I remember cleaning the place over Christmas holidays with Robert.
I wonder what Robert is thinking right now... if he is even thinking at all.

Election Day in Canada

Yes indeed, I voted today. This year I did not receive a voter card, so I had to fill out a form and wait, wait, wait. But, it was all good. I wonder if the fact that I've spent the last two years in Abbotsford had anything to do with it. It should not have changed my permanent address, but there is a chance that my voter card was mailed to the college! hehehe, oh well.
I can't wait to see the results. I hope the Tories kick some Liberal arse. Man, it would be great to see a Conservative majority this time around.

Now for something a little different...

I was foraging through the blogosphere when I came across Says Uncle. He tells of an exchange between his doctor, his-self, and his wife:
Doctor: [Explaining the procedure known as an episiotomy to me and the Mrs.]

Me: That don’t sound like it’s appeasing any damn body.

The Mrs.: Just keep your mouth shut.

Hehehehe! You don't need to know what episiotomy means to get the joke, but in case you're interested:
If you don't get it... well, that's okay Yammers, you're still my friend! hehehe.

Mongolia Pics

People have asked me why I want to go to Mongolia. Well, part of the reason can be found here

The folks there have posted many amazing pictures of life in Mongolia. It is absolutely beautiful.
That is why I am Mongolia Bound!

And since I'm linking up a storm anyways...

Go read this review of Michael Moore's new film "Farhenheit 911".
Nice work, Mr Hitchens.

He's done it again

Ya know folks, I've got a sidebar for a reason. The reason is that they write stuff that I find interesting. Case in point, the Monger (under Canadian Pride):
The reason why the Tories are right to advocate free votes on contentious moral issues, rather than serial Supreme Court references and "judge-made law", is that process is important. People may think that "our rights come from the Charter," but in fact our legal rights come from Parliament. I believe we have natural moral rights inherent in our humanity (and it is irrelevant whether you think these rights are humanistic or whether they derive from God or somewhere else), but these do not become politically and socially "real" until they are recognized by lawmakers. The only lawmakers we can possibly have are a representative Parliament. Judges--unelected, unaccountable--cannot, must not, be allowed to make the law. If Parliament is wrong, as they were when they refused the franchise to women and natives, or when they are wrong in a smaller way when they pass any bad law, then Parliament can be changed and can correct itself. If the Court is wrong, it becomes near impossible to redress. Moreover, the right of Parliament to make laws for Canadians derives from the consent of the governed. They have the right to make laws for us because we say they do every time we elect them. By contrast, we have no control over judges, and they do not govern us. They are a branch of government to be sure, but their only role should be to make sure that Parliament's laws conform to Parliament's supreme law (the constitution and the charter). Judges should have No Role At All in determining what should be in the Charter, or what laws we should have. These decisions must be left to Parliament.

I read this guy everyday (thankfully he is posting on a regular basis now). You should too. Go read the whole thing.

My Kind of Woman

The Kind that is as good as gold, in fact.
VANCOUVER - Canadian cross-country skier Beckie Scott received a gold medal Friday – more than two years after the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics

Sweet! It's about danny time, but at least those incompetent morons at the IOC did the right thing.
Her voice choking with emotion, Scott thanked "the people of Canada who have been overwhelming in their support from day one."

Yep, my kind of woman. In point of fact, it is WE who should thank YOU, for making us proud to be Canadian.
But in another race, the Russians tested positive for darbepoetin, a performance-enhancing substance. The IOC allowed the two to keep their medals in the five-kilometre pursuit because they had not failed drug tests for that race

Ahhh yes, the wonderful IOC. "You are a cheater, but we'll let you keep the medals you won TWO DAYS EARLIER because you weren't on the juice at that time." Stupid.
The Canadian Olympic Committee took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland. The COC cited the Olympic Charter which says any athlete caught cheating at the Olympics should be stripped of all of their medals.

Way to go, COC!
The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that Scott should get the gold.

Way to go, Court of Arbitration!

Go read the whole story, and take a look at a real Canadian hero. Now THAT is one hot babe.

Elderly Folks and their Pensions

Colby was on a radio show yesterday. He offers his thoughts about it here, and makes an interesting note about pensions. I'm all for helping out the elderly (especially WW2 veterans, who should be treated like kings), but there ain't gonna be much left for me when I hit 70, and I'd like to think my CPP contrbutions will actually amount to something someday.

Come to think of it, They will probably up the retirement age to 85 by the time I get there.

What a weekend

Today I cleaned carpets at the Houston Health Centre. It wasn't too bad, andtook me less time than I thought it would. There was a pretty cool guy named Milo who was there. I guess he is the maintenance/janitorial dude.

Also, Asylum has been posting like crazy to this blog. Since none of my other "friends" (read: CBC dormmates) post much, I feel it is my duty to lift her name on high. So, here's to you, my bestest friend. You are great, smart and wonderful. You're also a complete jerk and I'm insanely jealous of you because you are in Taiwan and I am not!

And also, scrap the scooter and buy a motorcyle!

Best One-liner EVER!

I think we can all agree: that is a GOOD thing.

Another Wack TV Preacher

So, I was doing some investigating into Casey Treat's church in Washington St, and I came across this on his website:
If Jesus is real in your life then you must also recognize the reality of your enemy. If it took the death of Christ to defeat him, it's going to take some dedication from you to complete that defeat and keep the devil from controlling your life. Jesus has stripped him of authority, but just like any common criminal, he'll do whatever you let him get away with. He cannot take your salvation but he can make you a non-effective Christian. The devil doesn't really care if you're saved or not as long as you don't go spreading salvation around. He wants to defeat you in any way he can.

As most of you know, I hold to a Preterist view of eschatology, which results in me not putting much stock in the person of Satan. Putting that aside though, there are a number of things I find wrong with Treat's view. What do you think of this statement?

Temujin's first ever contest of dirtiness!

Yes indeed, it is contest time! Your challenge is to come up with what Saddam should have written as his "occupation" in the Red Cross document. Click on the title of the last post to read the original CNN story.

Not anymore, asshat!

On the Red Cross document, Saddam listed his occupation as "Republic's President."

That's a BOOOOOOLLLLLLLD Statement! hehehe. When I first read this, my thought was "not anymore, you rat bastard!". So my question is this, what should Saddam have written as his occupation? There will be a prize for the answer I think is the funniest. Leave your suggestion in the comments, or email me! I like "El Spiderman: Allah's super hero of spider hole filth", or "Shunt stain on the ass of humanity".

But you can come up with better... I know you can!

Friendly fire

NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. pilot who bombed and killed four Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan struck a deal on Thursday to avoid a court martial.

Smart guy I guess. He probably knew he didn't have much of a chance any other way.

In a court martial, he could have lost his flying privileges, could have been kicked out of the military, and could have faced prison.

Which is probably what he deserves, after what he did.

Schmidt and Umbach, both with the Illinois Air National Guard's 170th Fighter Squadron, believed the enemy was firing at them when they dropped the bomb on members of the then Winnipeg-based Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry.

They were flying near Kandahar Airport in the early morning hours of April 18, 2002, when they detected ground fire. They thought it was directed at them and dropped a 225-kilogram laser-guided bomb, even though they had been ordered to hold their fire

I think that Umbach (the flight leader), should be flogged with rods. He's the one that could've stopped Schmidt from pressing the fire button. Their HQ had told them NOT to fire. Neither one of them seems very good at taking orders... that's not a desirable quality if you ask me. I feel sorry for the parents of the soldiers who died. Justice did not serve them today.
His hearing with his commanding general is scheduled for Canada Day.

How bloody ironic is that? It would be comical if it wasn't so shunty.

I'm actually quite surprised that friendly fire doesn't happen more often. I'm sure there are more than two trigger-happy pilots in the US air force, but it is a credit to those at HQ who take care of all the logistics work. They know where people are at. If only their orders werelistened to 100% of the time.

Political fun

Go check out CBC's political quiz. Some of their questions are DANNY hard. Nonetheless, I found it interesting.

A Ridiculous charge

VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi has been charged with assault causing bodily harm...

*sigh.* Whatever. This is the stupidest thing I have heard since the McSorley incident. What the crap are they going to do? Arrest him? Make him perform community service? Put him in jail??? I'll be the first to admit that Bertuzzi is most certainly guilty of "assault causing bodily harm". However, five hundred other NHL players are in the same boat. Think I'm exaggerating? Why don't we ask Martin St. Louis if Andrew Ference caused him any bodily harm during his "assault" in the third period of game seven. Or better yet, Ask Sami Kapanen how much harm was done to his bodily functions when Tucker laid the smack down on his candy-ass.

The fact is, "assault causing bodily harm" is an extremely important part of the game, and one I whole-heartedly condone. A fist to the head from behind is a dishonorable, dispicable, and downright dastardly deed, but it is no worse than a slash on the arm, or a stick to the chops (I saw plenty of both this past year). Call him a coward for the sucker-punch, and send out Peter Worrell (or another tough guy) to settle the score. But don't, and I mean DO NOT, charge the guy with something that every player is guilty of. And don't single the guy out as though he did something uniquely horrible. How stupid.

Next they'll want to take fighting out of the game...

The music of four fine bruthas

Be sure to get yourself a copy of the Dueck's recording. I've got mine on order, and I can't wait to hear it.
JD: It was an honor to hang wit yaz this past year. When I come to Manitoba in August, I shall buy you a beer and we'll toast to the good ol' days. Indeed.

As for Isengard... yeah... I'd buy that bastard a beer too. Oh BIG RED! PRETERISTS FOREVER!!!!!!

Misha is at it again

And this time he takes no prisoners! To all my loyal readers (all six of you): if you are not checking out his site regularily, DO SO NOW! Misha kicks ass. Be sure to peruse his thoughts on the allegations that Saddam is being mistreated! Does CNN actually think I care one iota about the comfort level of Shatdam Insane? For the record, I don't.

I fought the left, and the left won???

Not by a long shot! But, it wasn't I doing the fighting. It was a brave young man attending high school. Go read the whole thing, it is excellent. Well done Bryan!
(Stanley Cup Ring to the Monger)

Phone sweet phone

I was also honored to speak with the one and only Yammers (aka tamsyams). And two days before that, I talked to Chappy. How glorious! I miss you guys a lot, and I can't wait to see you again. This leads me to the reason for the post. I, A-Nizzle Drizzle R-E to the Wizzle, do solemnly declare that I will do whatever it takes to be in Manitoba in August. It has to happen boys, it just HAS to. And that's all I've got to say about that.

Say... How is the Yams Tams, anyways? I hope she enjoyed her filthy chick-flick movie tonight! muahahaha!

Another day... another dollar?

Today has been a fascinating day indeed. I started off the day by sucking the grease out of the grease trap at Louise's Kitchen, followed by a quick carpet job in Telkwa. I then accompanied a co-worker to a house cleaning job in town. I worked there from 10:30 until a little after 1, then I did a coupel more carpet jobs to finish my day. The other guy stayed at the house working until 4:30 (presumably) and he did not finish what he was supposed to! GRRRRR! He's a good guy, but he's a SLOW ASS worker, and it is really frustrating. I bid six hours for the job (plus two for the carpet, so eight altogether), and I told the lady that with two people it should be done in a day. She won't be very pleased, and I don't blame her. I don't understand it... all he had left was to wipe down the walls on the first floor, clean the furnace room (she even said it didnt have to be perfect), clean the bathroom, and make sure all the cupboards in the kitchen were cleaned inside and out. Should that really take more than four hours??? I don't think so, yet he told the secretary that there was a couple more hours left on the job! Sheesh! That house had better be absolutely sparkling, because there can be no other justification for being so slow!

At any rate, I had a carpet job at 2, and another at 4. The two o'clock job took me over two hours, and when I arrived at the last job, I realized that I had left my vacuum wand at the other house! D'oh! So I drive all the way across town back to the other house (fortunately the 4:00 job was an unoccupied appartment), but the woman had left the house and locked the door! EL BITTAR! By the time I stole the other wand from the other van, it was 5:00, and I didn't finished until 6:15! A good ten hour day! That is the first time I have ever left a piece of equipment at a jobsite. Oops!
Tomorrow I've got on carpet job in the morning, and then a big waxing job at Camp Caledonia near Telkwa. The guy I am working with is the night supervisor. He does most of the wax jobs for the company. He is off the wall! It should be interesting, because he gets stressed easily and it willbe a long day. I can't wait.

Sorry for the uber-post, but I had a lot to say about work today.

Mock Ree, Mock Ree... where are you Mock Ree?

Today my Pastor preached the same sermon as he did last Father's day. I didn't really pay much attention last year, and I sorta tuned out this year after I realized it was the same. I understand that the guy is stinkin' busy, and many people who are in the church now were not around last year, but come on, dude!

After church, I hung out with my brother's family. They had a father's day suare (hehehe... suare) and it was a lot of fun. I got my brother wet with a small bucket of water, and he was pissed off, but I don't feel bad about it because he was getting everyone else and was plotting strategy to soak me. He'll get over it.

Now I'm heading out to a BBQ (yeah yeah yeah BBQ) with a whole schwack of friends. The hosts are from Ontario, and are house-sitting for another couple of weeks until they head back home. They are really cool, and I find hanging out with them especially interesting. With them, there is really no need to put on a show, or pretend to be something I'm not. I value that quality quite a lot in people, and certainly in those I consider friends. It will be sad when they return home. On of them has already moved to Taiwan. I've linked to her blog before, but I'll do it again. Be sure to visit the Asylum, and vote for the motorcycle!

I'm not sure if I'll get to post again tonight, but hopefully Mock Ree will make an appearance.

More on Moore...

Michael Moore doesn't want the Conservatives to win the Canadian election.

Folks, that is reason enough to vote for them.

Michael Moore is a lying thief.

He won the hearts and minds of critics and audiences at the Cannes Film Festival, but Michael Moore has upset a legendary science fiction author with the title his anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11."

In an English translation of an interview Ray Bradbury did with the Swedish daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter, published last week, the Web site World Net Daily reported the author of the classic fiction novel "Fahrenheit 451" called Moore a "screwed a------" because he "stole" the title.

I dislike Moore for so many reasons, and this just adds to it. For more on Dirtbag Moore, check out the updated sidebar.
(Stanley Cup ring to Michael Wilson. SUPPORT HIS FILM!)

Another hazard to avoid...

What a great story:
Yellowknife's golf course was shut down on Friday after an unarmed missile fell off a Canadian Forces CF-18 jet and landed on the driving range.

Just what I need! I can barely hit the fairways and green at the best of times, and now they are dropping bombs on courses! That's it, I'm taking up crocheting. Less risk of serious injury.
Maj. Rob Carter said it was a real missile, not a practice or training device. Carter said the safety systems were on and there was no danger of the missile exploding.

The bomb fails to explode, meanwhile my game inplodes! What kind of trade-off is that???
Kennedy said he was forced to cancel a major golf tournament and there's no word when golfers can return to the course.

Well they should consider themselves lucky! Hey Chappy, Yammers... any plans on going north this summer?

A sad day indeed.

This past week in Houston (a town southeast of Smithers), a man killed his wife and then turned the gun on himself. I don't recall anything like this happening in the Bulkley Valley in a long time. It is really quite sad, and will probably cause quite an uproar in Houston (population 4500). The man's last name was Sullivan, a very prominent man in the community. His family owns a car dealership in town, I believe it is one of the largest GM dealers in Western Canada. They sell trucks en masse to miners, loggers, sawmill foremen, etc. As I said, this will cause a lot of grief in the Valley. Many questions will be asked, like "How could he do such a thing?" and "what caused him to snap?".

Since I heard, I've thought about a few things myself. Was God there when he pulled the trigger? Will God be there for the family as they struggle through? How will the family react?

At this point, I am reminded that no matter how bleak my life seems to be, or how it seems as though none of my dreams will ever come to fruition, there is hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and my life is NOT in vain.

Thanks God, and thanks to all of you out there (family, friends from CBC & Smithers), I am honored to know you, and am humbled that you consider me a friend. I am a better person because I know each of you.

You go now!

Den Beste has done it again. Brilliant.

I'm torn on this one

MOSCOW - A Moscow court has upheld a lower court decision banning activities by Jehovah's Witnesses in the Russian capital.

Well, that's not a really a bad thing, because the JW's are FREAKS with screwy doctrine and bad theology. However, it sets a dangerous precedent that could harm adherents to all religions in Russia (except the Orthodox church, of course). I hate how the government there always panders to the Orthodox. There you have it folks, another reason why church and state should remain separate. Those Anabaptists had that one right on!

The creepiest part of all, the JW spokesman's name is "Christian Presber" Yikes! (Note: look up the word presber if you don't know what it means).

The church is charged with stirring up religious discord and encouraging suicide, because it doesn't believe in blood transfusions.

Encouraging suicide eh? Hmmmmmm... wonder what the Word-faith movement folks would do if Canada or the US enacted that kind of a law! Or Mary Baker Eddy's
"Christian Science" adherents!

This man needs to die

Look, I'm a reasonable man. In fact, I think grace is a very good thing in many situations. Heck, I've been the recepient of grace many times in my life. BUT THERE CAN BE NONE FOR HIM:
Michael Briere, 36, who was charged with the murder of Holly Jones last year, showed no emotion as he loudly said "Guilty" when asked in court how he pleaded.
A statement of facts filed with the court gave previously unreleased details about Holly's killing. It confirmed that the girl was sexually assaulted before she was murdered, and revealed that she was strangled to death within an hour of her abduction. Briere then dismembered Holly, putting her body parts in two gym bags before dumping them in Lake Ontario.

He will be incarcerated for life, with the possibility of parole in 25 years. There is no need for this piece of filth to waste more taxpayer money (not to mention precious oxygen). A couple of needles... a loaded gun... hell, why not lock him in a room with a thousand fire ants? And do you know what he said at his trial? On The National, it was reported that he admitting to being addicted to child porn! This filthy scum-sucking ass-clown (apologies to all ass-clowns out there) has waived his right to exist as a member of the human race. This is why we need the death penalty in Canada.

Poor little ducklings!

I sure hope this isn't what I think it is... how tragic!
(Stanley Cup ring to Dipnut)

The bulk of my email is spam

Actually, only about ten percent is, but according to the CBC, that is the 'bulk' of it:
Meat packers got bulk of mad cow aid

Oh, those filthy meat packers! Those big bad corporations stealing money that should go to the little guy! Give that money to the farmers!

EDMONTON - More than 10 per cent of the $400 million in mad cow aid distributed in Alberta went to two meat-packing companies, the province said on Monday.

Another $200 million was split among 40 other companies. The rest of the money was divided among 22,000 Alberta producers and companies, who were paid an average of $18,000.

To skim this article, one would be left thinking that Alberta beef producers got the shaft. However, $18,000 isn't a bad haul, and when you consider the amount of money that the meat packers lost, it then seems logical that they should get the 'bulk'. Approximately 160 million dollars went to producers, which ain't bad. I wish British Columbia's goverment had that kind of cash to split amongst meat packers, producers, and farmers!

Alberta Agriculture Minister Shirley McLellan said it was right for the biggest players to get the biggest cheques.

"I've known what was going to come today," McLellan said. "It's 'Gee you paid the big guys,' and 'Gee the little guy didn't get much.' But you know what? The little guy didn't lose much either.

"The little guy didn't have that much invested or he would have got a bigger cheque."

Now don't get me wrong, I've got some good friends who are farmers, and it aint easy work at all! I think they certainly deserve a break after the BSE (emphasis on the BS part) and Avian Flu scares. But the CBC is making it seem as though this was a completely unfair distribution of funds, which it really wasnt.
If only the bulk of readers had access to more objective reporting... and I don't mean ten percent.

well, that was fun

I handled myself alright I think. Some of these guys have played this game tons, and there is a young kid here who just plain kicks ass. But, I did my fair share of killun', so I'm pleased with myself. I really like using sniper weapons, but I must admit it is fun to throw grenades and watch three of four guys fly!

And Cheez... you know who your daddy is.

Battlefield Vietnam

Going to try and play a LAN Battlefield Vietnam with some friends. I'm definitely on the US side. heh.
Get ready Cheez, your death cometh...

Reason number 6395 to bring back the Death Penalty

A woman who did nothing to stop her husband as he killed and dismembered his five-year-old daughter will spend at least 15 years in prison, an Ontario judge said on Monday

This woman needs to suffer the same fate her daughter did... only much much worse.

Four years ago, Fatima and Khan killed Farah Khan and tried to dispose of her dismembered body in a lakeside park in Toronto.

Give me the needles, I'll inject her myself...

He said Fatima helped carry her stepdaughter's body parts to the park, then lied to protect herself and her husband.

Tell me again why she is still consuming mass quantities of my precious oxygen? (thanks for the quote,Misha)

So now my taxes pay for her jail cell. THAT IS NOT RIGHT!

Dis bate... dat bate... debate

I didn't get to watch all of the debate today, but what I saw was interesting. I think Layton and Duceppe get along too well for my liking... Martin looks like he wishes he was on the Conservative ticket, and Harper was calm, cool, and collected. I tuned in just as they were asking questions about US/Canada relations. It was very interesting to hear the responses. According to Layton and Duceppe, if we agree with Bush on anything, that is like bowing down before big brother. They oppose the US because anything less than opposition is slavery!What a crock!

Remember kids: Vote, but Never Vote Socialist.

Last post of the day...

All should read this

I concur, 'nuff said.
(Stanley Cup ring to Scott Elliot.)

Another Reason why the CBC is LAME

My own greatest Canadians
CBC News Viewpoint | June 11, 2004
It may appear on the surface a boring, safe, predictable choice – another dead white politician – but Lester Bowles Pearson is the greatest Canadian who ever lived.

Uhhhhhh? WTF?!?!?!?!?!? I know I need new glasses, but this is ridiculous... I couldn't possibly have just read that! Terry Fox is #5, which I can agree with, but Wayne Gretzky is #9!!!! WHATEVER! A horse that won the kentucky derby is 3rd! That is the biggest load of shunt I've ever seen!

Hello Paul Henderson

Hello John Macrae (and I don't mean the teacher at CBC, though he is an incredible man)

Hello Rick Hanson

Hello Alexander Graham Bell, James Doohan, William Shatner, Chris Hadfield,the men and women who sacrificed their lives for us,DON CHERRY!!!!


Awww shat... the blood is boiling again.

The blood is officially boiling.

This is the type of enemy we are up against. Yes, WE, Canadians. IF you think the bastards that did this are partial to Americans then think again. WE ARE THE INFIDEL TOO. They want to do this to ALL of us.
Dammit, my blood pressure is rising again.

(Stanley Cup ring to Emperor Misha).

Something for Chretien to think about?

Former U.S. president George H.W. Bush has landed safely after making a
parachute jump on Sunday to celebrate his 80th birthday.

Perhaps good ol' Jean C. should take a flying leap as well... errr... maybe without the 'chute?


Deposed dictator Saddam Hussein may go on trial this summer, Iraq's interim president Ghazi Mashal Ajil al-Yawer said Sunday.

I can't wait. He will be found guilty of everything under the sun, and then he will be given the death penalty. I think cutting open his stomach and hanging him from his guts would get the job done; however, any form of dead is good enough for me.

Capital Gains?

This strikes me as interesting for a couple of reasons:
The Ottawa Senators are making a pitch for Detroit Red Wings goaltender Dominik Hasek and Senators general manager John Muckler is in serious talks with his agent, Rich Winter, according to a report in the Calgary Sun.

The Sens are looking to make a big splash after firing Jacques Martin. They have been arguably the best regular season team over the last five or six years, but have never made any real noise in the playoffs (not to mention losing to the hated Leafs on multiple occasions). I cannot see Hasek going to Ottawa at this point. There are just too many unknowns with all the collective bargaining shunt still left to resolve. Lets remember... this is the same franchise that was out of dough not a year and a half ago. Even if Hasek did sign with Ottawa (presumably for less than he makes now), I don't think he is the answer. What Ottawa needs (as well as the rest of Canadian teams, except Calgary) is a superstar-type, game-breaking, Canadian Captain. Koivu, Sundin, Alfredson, and Naslund are all excellent players, but they just don't have it. It sucks to say, because I want desperately for the Canucks to do well, but I just don't ever see Gary Bettman ever handing the cup to either of the aforementioned four. I could actually envision him handing the cup to Iggy, and maybe even Ryan Smyth in Edmonton (but they need to play a full season to make the playoffs, not just two months). What do Andreychuk, Sakic, Stevens, and Yzerman all have in common? You guessed it! And before anyone points out Modano to me, all I have to say is the guy was born in Michegan, and played hockey in Minnesota... that's practically Canada anyways.

There, I finally got a sidebar up and running. It isn't much to look at, but it is a start nonetheless. Check 'em all out, I know you wont be disappointed.

Good fortunes in the midst of hardships.

Last week a fire tore through a house on Third Avenue in Smithers. Apex was called by the insurance company to do the clean up, so that meant a whole lotta hours for Temujin and his co-employees. I've never seen a house fire close-up before, but now that I have I know that I never want it to happen to me! It was the eeriest feeling in the world to be shovelling ash that was once a coffee table, book shelf, night-stand, etc. The worst of all was going through the kids' rooms. A half-burned crib, drawers filled with smoked out kids clothes, and melted toys were just some of the wonderful sights I saw this past week.

Shortly before the fire started, the wife had taken off her wedding ring and put it on her night-stand before she went to bed. According to the story I heard, the fire started when a burning candle fell(?) in the master bedroom. It doesn't take long for even a small fire to blaze out of control, and this was no exception. Everything in the master bedroom was destroyed; we salvaged next to nothing. This afternoon, around 4:00pm, we were just finishing pulling out the remnants of the carpet in that bedroom and shovelling the charred remains into garbage bags. Lo and behold, in the corner of the bedroom, was a gold wedding ring. It was quite blackened, but retained its shape despite the tremendous heat it was exposed to (I suspect that gold must have an extremely high melting temperature).

I have been asking a number of questions about marriage lately. I have polled singles, divorcees, folks who have been married for a couple of years, and some who have been married many years. As most of you know, I still have a hard time with the notion of a wedding. But I think I am beginning to understand why so many people place such a high value on marriage. When two people can withstand the flames, the fire, the hardship, the struggles of life, and still find each other... there is strength in that. There is hope in that. For Christians, it is something sacred, something spiritual as well as physical. I am not sure of this couple's religious affiliation, but I am sure they are not Christians. Even so, their wedding ring taught me something today.

Help is on the way...

Change is good! It looks like I'll be getting some help with the blog. Once work slows down I'll be posting a lot more (and creating a... erhm... sidebar), but now Sardis-Boy will be posting his thoughts as well (hehehe Sardis Boy).

Sallied away

I'm sallied away right now, but everything is fine because I won at crib tonight. hehehe... when will they ever learn!
crap... I gotta work in the morning, how savage.

I concur

The Monger is one of my favorite reads. He's got a lot to say about Canadian Politics... and does a mighty fine job of liberal bashing too. Case in point.
Dirty Liberals... BLECH!

The golden treasure of Colby Coshery

Ahhh, my personal choice for Canadian Idol, Colby Cosh is at it again.
One day I'll be able to write this good. But for now, I point you all in the direction of a my favorite right-wing canuck (it's a pity he's from Edmonton).

What the Hull?

Can somebody explain this to me?
The Detroit Red Wings are not expected to offer Brett Hull
a new contract for next season, according to the Detroit Free

Now don't get me wrong, I have no great adoration for Hull. In fact, I rather hate the selfish bastard, but this guy is a danny good hockey player, and in the last half of the year he was firing on all cylinders. How could he not be in their plans??? The only team that has more money to kick around than Detroit is the Rangers, and Brett Hull was a crapload better than Holik, Bure, or Lindros were this year!

Alright, I did it... my first linking post... and it's a link to a hockey story... surprise surprise.

TGIF indeed

I had a relatively good day at work today. I'm just on a dinner break and I've got to work again at 7:00 for a couple of hours. That will bring my total today to around
10 1/2 hours... not a bad day indeed! I had problems with one of the vans this morning and it put me behind quite a bit; however, I met a really cool couple who recently moved to Smithers from Port Coquitlam. They are both counselors... which is kinda scary because whenever I hang out with those types I always think in the back of my head: "I wonder if this person is analyzing me right now... I wonder what they think of me... etc." At any rate, I hope I get to see and talk to them again, because they seemed cool. I promise I'll get to posting links and stories sometime soon. Oh yeah, and I've gotta get myself a functioning sidebar... sheesh! For now, go check out my friend Melissa's website. She is in Taiwan and has a major decision to make: buy a scooter or a motorbike! I know you will all vote for the motorbike, so GO VOTE NOW! Also, leave a comment or sign the guestbook and let her know AJ sent ya.

Enough playing around for one night

Alright, so that's it for tonight. Tomorrow should bring a fully-stocked sidebar with my favorite reads, and some posts that actually make sense. At this point I'm not entirely sure where this blog is going, but I know it will include politics, some sports talk, and even some humour too. Basically, I want to make it easier for my friends, who have suffered from an overabundance of emails containing nothing but links!
Hopefully this will turn into a good forum for discussing various news stories. I've opened up the comments for you all to use, and I trust that you will leave your thoughts and feelings. Sometimes I may get riled up, and use harsh invective, hopefully you will all appreciate it.


Stephen Den Beste, I know that you do not know me, but you are the first official link from my blog. Enjoy your fame!
Number two has to be Dipnut, since his was the first blog I read with any consistency. To all my little beastlings... GO READ HIS SITE NOW!

Thursday, June 10, 2004

ok, now I've got it for sure...
everyone should check out this site!

alright... how about this time...

linkage love?

This had better work....


What a terrible title for a first post... I really should think up something witty, charming, or intelligent to say. Oh wait... I know... A-Nizzle Drizzle to th' R-E Wizzle! YEAH! (that's for you, chappy)
