I have to confess, I'm more worried...

...about the billions of dollars they piss away on purpose... but still...

TORONTO — The Ontario [Liberal] government says a glitch with social assistance transfers that queued up $20 million in overpayments has been fixed — though efforts are underway to retrieve $300,000 that did end up being received.

Amber Anderson says around 6,000 of the wrongful direct transfers and cheques did make it out the door but were either pulled back or cancelled — though 253 clients did receive a total of around $300,000 yet to be retrieved.

Will Liberal MPP's make up any shortfall to the taxpayers of Ontario from their obscene salaries?

The nation’s self-styled healer of souls was mum in response to black radical grievance-mongers’ calls to vengefully burn Ferguson to the ground – a seething sentiment echoed the next day by Brown’s stepfather.

Mr. Hope and Change stayed silent about the lynch-mob instigators calling for Wilson to be shot and his family murdered.
Obama's latest finger waving lecture directed at the folks who aren't burning and looting may just be one toke over the line... even with fellow Democrats...
Whether out of frustration or political necessity, some of President Obama’s closest lieutenants from his first term are distancing themselves from Mr. Obama as 2016 approaches.

Two classes of firearms in Canada

Previously, only some House of Commons guards carried guns. NOW ALL WILL, though it is unclear when the training will be complete and the new policy fully in place.

**********

DEAR "PROFESSIONAL" JOURNALISTS:

Stop embarrassing yourselves.

What happened in Ferguson was not a "protest." A protest is a lawful assembly of citizens who wish to raise public awareness. Looting and burning, shooting at First Responders and carjacking and robbing (two news crews at last count, btw) are acts of criminal mayhem.

Let's lose the "gentle giant" malarkey. Michael Brown (at 6'5" and 300lbs) was in the 99th percentile for size and strength. He was used to getting his way. Fifteen minutes before he was stopped by Officer Wilson, he had initiated a strongarm robbery and assaulted a convenience store owner. Had he lived, he would have faced numerous felony charges including assaulting a law officer. Ironically, his last words... "You're too pussy to shoot me," as he struggled to reach Officer Wilson's firearm have enshrined his arrogance and misplaced sense of superiority for all time.

Stick to reliable facts. How about quoting the people who gave sworn testimony to the grand jury... accounts that, surprise, surprise, back up Officer Wilson's narrative. Quoting Michael Brown's "homies"... (people who won't give testimony under oath) is ridiculous and inflammatory. Hyperbolic accounts of homicidal cops manufactured on the spot and stories that defy the physical evidence do not deserve to see the light of day.

Do not automatically beatify the families. Michael Brown's mother gave birth before she got out of primary school. What sort of upbringing do you imagine he actually had. Louis Head, Michael's stepfather, a twice convicted felon and gangbanger was seen hysterically screaming for the gathered masses to "Burn this bitch (the city of Ferguson) down."

If Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown are indeed the poster boys for racial injustice in America, there is very little hope for any sort of reconciliation.

This is why we don't respect the MSM. This is why newpapers and television news are being superceded by internet media. Learn or die.

Buying an election

Remember Dalton McGuinty's tough stand on teachers? Turns out, surprise, surprise, it was a very temporary political ploy to get his successor past the post. Let's pick up the story from there...

In February 2013, Wynne took over, repealed the bill, and re-opened negotiations with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation. The two sides eventually achieved peace, for an undisclosed price.

We now know that price.

According to Lysyk, who was commissioned following a complaint from the Progressive Conservatives, it cost $355-million for changes to maternity leave, sick days, retirement benefits and professional development, as well as $113-million to eliminate wage differences between unions.

In total, the price tag was nearly a half-billion dollars; indeed, it’s enough to make an Education Minister dash down a hallway.
They look you right in the face and they lie.

Remember... you get the kind of government you deserve.

Two female NDP MPs who allege improper conduct by a duo of male Liberal MPs will not be formally laying a complaint to launch an investigation, says a senior New Democrat.

The decision could leave Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau with a political dilemma: Without an investigation, does he allow his two MPs back into caucus after suspending their membership because of the allegations?
Hey Justin... just ask yourself, "What would the PRC Politburo do?"

Oh, that's right... you already did.
OTTAWA - The House of Commons committee that was to create a sexual harassment policy to govern MPs has decided it doesn't have the mandate for it.

Following question period, a clearly agitated Trudeau told reporters that he was unable to take any action before hearing back from Scheer.

That leaves little chance of an investigation, and the fates of Andrews and Pacetti still unclear.

John Stephenson of Metro Shooting Supplies in nearby Bridgeton said he normally sells 10 to 15 guns a day. But for the last three weeks, he said he has been selling between 30 and 50 guns daily, a nearly 300 percent increase.

The biggest sellers have been "home defense shotguns" and "high capacity semi-automatic pistols," particularly the Smith & Wesson M&P9, Stephenson said. He's sold about 250 of the pistols in the last few weeks.

"As fast as we get them in, we sell them," he said.

Not too shabby for an outfit that can't seem to ever offer up a description of a shooter unless they're wearing a badge.

A dozen people gathered at the farm for a feast and ceremony — offering peace to the spirits of the boys and thanks to Breckenridge for carrying their story.
Yup... no physical remains, but apparently the force is with them.
“We saw a hawk come over the gathering and to us, we take that as affirmation that spiritual work we were doing was being acknowledged,” said Becky Big Canoe, a member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation and one of the organizers of the event.

An investigation by CBC, using state-of-the-art equipment, showed there may in fact be three bodies buried beneath the foundation of the barn, exactly where Breckenridge remembered them to be.
Whoa, it's nothing but state of the art gadgets at CSI Pefferlaw. At least we know what the CBC is doing with the billion plus taxpayer dollars they suck out of our pockets every year.

Oh... wait...
Police have found nothing after digging up a barn northeast of Toronto to determine whether three boys were murdered and buried there decades ago.
Oh... no bodies you say? That's okay... CBC did their in-depth investigation, that's what counts.

"Almost half of all children living in foster care in 2011 were Aboriginal."
How this decision will speak to those cases completely eludes me. Again... let's look at the numbers...

Whereas President Obama promised in 2009 that it would cost less than $1 trillion over ten years. In order to partially pay for this, ObamaCare has added more than 20 new taxes totaling over $500 billion.

2. BUREAUCRACY. Speaking of Orwellian politics, ObamaCare includes 159 new boards and agencies to restrict and govern your health care choices.

3. STILL MORE BUREAUCRACY. Dysfunctional state exchanges with high deductible policies, narrow doctor networks, including federally-run exchanges in 36 states which may not be allowable under the law (SCOTUS currently considering this case).

That because while selected parents will be asked their views about issues related to the new sex education curriculum, Education Minister Liz Sandals has already said that’s unlikely to lead to any changes.

“Will not a difficulty arise, as to who these people are?
In the Mohawk village here, a large proportion are the immediate (perhaps the second generation) descendants of Germans; there is also a family of immediate descendants of Africans: Are they to be considered as Indians? There are also some descendants of Americans, whose ancestors were Europeans. Will they come within the intention of the Order? In fact there are but few real Indians amongst them.”
Well, technically they are all descendants of Americans, forced out of the Mohawk Valley in New York by non-aboriginal countrymen and relocated by the British to reservations north of the 49th parallel.

And how did the bureaucracy respond?
In a letter to the association dated Oct. 28, 2013, however, Commons Clerk Audrey O’Brien denied the request. Security Constables were told instead to “retreat” and let the RCMP handle any threat.
Told to retreat. That seems to be an all-too-common refrain in Canada these days. Like telling our soldiers not to wear their uniforms in public.

When exactly did standing your ground... politically, culturally, emotionally... or simply protecting yourself and your family... become a bad thing?

The trouble with playing the race card is that it's usually more emotional than evidentiary... from Skip Gates to Trayvon to "gentle giant" Michael Brown, the Whitehouse has been consistently misreading the table...

As the official autopsy report obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch demonstrates, Brown was shot in the hand at close range—with gunpowder residue in the wound. Both findings seem to buttress Wilson’s contention that there was a struggle over the officer’s pistol.

Additionally, a forensic pathologist interviewed by the paper noted that “the autopsy did not support witnesses who have claimed Brown was shot while running away from Wilson, or with his hands up.”
When the grand jury comes back "no-bill" on Officer Darren Wilson, the smart money anticipates it will result in yet another round of burning and looting and personal violence.

All the verifiable evidence will take a weak second place to the media-inspired fairy story that an innocent man was murdered by a racist police officer.

We are all to blame here because we tolerate this injustice. Not the perceived injustice of CNN and their media brethren... but the rigged table that refuses to accept the politically incorrect truth about the perjured witness testimony that framed an innocent police officer in such a terrible light.

The real monsters here are the race-hustlers who stirred up the violence after Michael Brown died... and who will no doubt, do it again when Officer Wilson is officially cleared. Their accomplices are the weak-minded "professional" journalists who bend with the mob instead of pursuing the facts.
