12/7/05 01:28 pm - Canadians given two day Extension on life

The two Canadians  being held by the Scumbag Terrorist in Iraq have had their lives extended by 2 days.

If the Americans and Iraqis don't release all prisoners by then they will be killed.

I say kill them now.  Why prolong their suffering.  The Americans will not negotiate.  They will release no one.

What a bunch of fucking coward these scumbags are.  They don't have the balls to fight the people they have a beef with.  So the go and kidnap four people who are trying to help the needy in Iraq.  They don't give a crap about their fellow countrymen.  If they did they would back the fuck off, let the americans rebuild the country that Hussain tore down and then get out of there.  Instead the blow up temples, police stations, hotells.

I wish Canada would adopt a much stronger stance against these dirt bags.  Send in JTF two to hunt down these guys and put a 7.62mm hole in their head.  Hell, kill them, and their entire family as an example of what happens when you fuck with Canadians abroad.  Send a message.  And the next fuck hole that messes with an Canadian over seas, you send in JTF 2 atain, and kill them and their entire family.  Eventually these people will realize that their acts have a concequence beyond their lives.

But we wont, cause we don't even put murderers in our own country in jail.
 

12/5/05 10:29 am - Peter Waren ROCKS

He asked each of the leaders this question:

If your wife needed hip replacement, was in pain and had to wait 18 months for the surgery would you go to a private clinic to speed up the process.

Harper said he would.

Layton said he and his wife have agreed they would suffer the 18 months.

Martin said he would let his wife suffer the 18 months.

I believe Harper.  I believe Layton.  I don't believe Martin because the bastard already uses a private clinic.

But what is shows is a distinct lack of understanding of the problem from both Layton and Martin.
 

12/1/05 12:49 pm - Hummm....

I wonder if during WWII we had the kind of instant media coverage we have now if the Allies would have been able to contiue its war against Germany if the first few weeks of Operation Overlord got the same coverage as in current wars.  Could they have continued the War in the Pacific if they the Battles of Tarawa had been seen on TV that night..

I don't think so.  I think they would have faced exaclty the same responce they have now.  Been forced though public oppinion to scale back.
 

12/1/05 12:23 pm - Why do we reward people for incompetance?

Really... we have a lesser punisment for people who try to kill a person but fail?

In my mind they should get the same jail time as someone who does kill a person, plus a few extra years for incompetance!

11/29/05 11:05 am - FUCKING TELUS....

Ok.....

Back in October I ordered a new home phone line (First Mistake).  We have been mooching off of dad till now. 

I was given a date of Nov 1.

Good think I called to see the status of it... cause they where going to cancel dads phone and hook mine up.  I corrected them, but they said that they had to send a tech out to the house and it would not be till the 25th that they could do that.... so I wait 4 weeks.

And take a day off work.  At about 11am on the 25th I decided to check and see if all is working.  It is... .I call telus and tell them they don't need to send a tech out as its working (Second Mistake).  By 6:00pm it's not working anymore.  I call and complain... they have not record of the order for that day and I am scheduled for Jan 7th.  FUUUUUUUCK..  Nothing anyone can do at 6:00pm, I have to call back saturday.

I call on saturday.... Nothing she can do as its the weekend.  Maybe monday.

Monday comes, she can't get it working, but she issues a Software Install only for Tuesday.

YAHHHH Tuesday morning before work I check and its working.  I can call out, and call in.... all working.

Then I get a call from the Telus lady.  Bad news.  It didn't work she tells me.  I tell her it did work, I checked it.  She explains that they have to send a tech to the trunk office to hook the line is, as the records show its not hooked up and it would not work.  I tell her again that it worked.  She said when she issued the order to go to the Trunk office and hook it up  the computer disconected the line.

For FUCKS SAKES.....

So as it stands now a Tech will go to the branch office on Thrusday and find out that he did not have to do any work.  And 5 weeks after I could have had a phone number I hopefully will have one.

But I ain't holding my breath!

A Canadian  Soilder died today in Afgahnistan when a LAV III tiped over.  4 others are injured.
 

11/24/05 09:02 am - Further to my last post...

The best thing for Canada right now would be a Conservative Minority needing Bloc/NDP support to get bills passed.

If the Conservatives/NDP can really get togeather, can convince canadians that they could work togeather, then it could happen.

Ok... this takes the cake... on CKNW there is a guy that typifies the IDIOTS that support the liberals!!!!  "IT HAPPENS IN POLITICS"  We should elect the liberals again because "It happens in politics"  We all know that the Liberals are a bunch of crooks and they should be tossed out on their asses.  Peoples support for them is based on fear of change, fear of Conservatives "social hidden aggenda", so they chose a corupt gov over change because they are afraid.
 

11/24/05 08:54 am - Motion has been introduced...

We should see the current bastar... erm I  mean Liberal Gov. fall on monday, with an election called on Tuesday.

I predict a month of Stephen Harper pointing out all that we already know about AddScam and how the liberals are corupt.  Martin will say how Harper has a hidden agenda, will mention "americanization".  Layton will try anything to convince NDP supporters not to vote for liberals just to keep harper out.

We all know that the liberals are corupt as a party.  They have been in power to long, and they need a house cleaning.  I don't know if they will get kicked out, I doubt it!  I fear that we will just have another Liberal minority, and we will have the same crap as the last 12 years.

There is a chance that the Bloc will take enough seats in QB.  There is a chance BC will be split between Conservative and NDP, and a few more Ontario seats will go to the Conservative... then we might, just might see a Conservative Minority.

11/21/05 11:09 am - Rented Superman over the weekend

It reminded me how much I love that movie, the music, the way Reeves plays Clark Kent/Superman.  I hope the next one (Superman Returns) is as good as this one, and not like the last two in the series.

It reminds me of a saying writen in chalk on the equipment at t sawmill I used to do work at.  it said "Don't piss into the wind, don't tug on supermans cape and don't piss of jim"  Jim was this whack job of an employee they had there, nice enough most of the time, but had a temper that could blow....

I must say I am happy with the way the municipal elections went.

Maple Ridge had a change of mayor, and a few new council memebers, a change I hope will move our development from sprawl to centralized.  We shall see.

I thought it was very interesting in Burnaby that the challenger admited to drunk driving a few years ago.  HE did this days before the election.  He had hid it from his slate as well as the public.  Stupid.  It probably cost him the election.  His slate though, they took half of the seats, so now that commie mayor there will not be able to ramy every left wing nutty idea through.

Surrey got a change too.  Though the ruling party there returned a strong majority on council so the newbie will not be able to change much.

Vancouver.... well the NPA has swung into power again, no reall suprise there, though it was alot tighter than I thought it would be for mayor.  Alot of the whacko lefties are out, so maybe now we won't see musical interludes in council meetings or huge spending spreess on pet social projects any more.  And you should see wallmart and Canadian Tire on Marine Drive now!

Watching the Superman Returns teaser reminded me of Movie Theme songs....

When I was a kid, movies all had great Musical Intro's  Starwars, Indian Jones, Conan, Superman, James Bond, STARTREK!!!!

Some have stuck with me for ever, and just hearing them is enough to make my hair stand on end.....

I think there was a movie Crimson Tide

Now-a-days it does not seam to be the case..... 

Batman, X-men.... Spidey....

Some still do though.... LOTR did...

Maybe I just don't pay attention.....  or maybe I just don't see the number of movies I used to....

I am not just talking about putting some pop bands song, Im talking about an original score, or a modification of some great orchestral piece...

I am listing to the supes theme over and over this morning....
 

11/18/05 08:30 am - Superman Returns

I am looking forward to this movie more than any movie since.....  I can't remember.  Sure, I have anticipated movies in the past few years..... but I think it would have to be one of the Trek or possibly even TPM since I have been this excited about a movie opening.....

The Teaser is out now....

11/14/05 12:42 pm - Parental Super Powers...

Mothers and Fathers each have their own super powers.... I am convinced of this...

Fathers have the supreme ability to ignore what ever anoying thing the children seam to be doing if the father is otherwise occupied.. the children could be tearing the house appart, but if the father is enjoying his dinner, or his fav. TV show. or THE hockey game of the week, none of it registers....

Mothers don't seam to be able to do this....

They can however detect when a child is doing something they should not be.... even if that child is in a different room.  Children must give of some "guilty" vibes.... who knows....

I have seen these powers in action in our household.....

Built another piece of Furnature last night...

A pretty simple computer desk, out of MDF... Use this tremclad spay paint for it... it is supposed to look like hammered brass... but it looks more goldish to me.... maybe will darken when done...

Tonight I build the hutch for the top of the desk, to hold our papers/printer CD's....

I also installed a wireless network card in the PC at home... when telus upsold us to the faster home service last year we got a wireless router.... dad has used it for his notebook... and now I don't need any cables either.... actually, the only things I have plugged directly into the computer are the monitor and printer (I have wireless keyboard and mouse)... and occasionally an mp3 player....

Once it is finished then the computer moves upstairs into our bedroom, my brother takes over our old computer desk, and this free's up room in the hoby room for ME TO START THE TRAIN LAYOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11/3/05 12:26 pm - So all you NHL fans....

Under the New CBA, if a player is injured, and you have to call up a replacement, the replacement AND the injured players sallaries count (in some cases it does not but in most it does)... 

So in order to get around it what the Canucks are doing to replace Cloutie and Cooke they call up the players the day of the game, and send them back the day after.... only have to pay them for one day, but...

They actually have to fly the guys home....

And these two guys (Mc Vickers and Greene) will be playing 3 or 4 games each... thats 8 flights.....

And they only get the NHL salary for ONE DAY.... sucks....

There are people here that regularly put in 20 extra hours a week.... I don't think they will in the future.

Also applied the flower print stamps to the bathroom.... Christine snapped a few pics of that.

Fixed the Corola, changed out the distributer Cap/wire harness... No more back firing and stutering....

On the down side Faith ended up having a blader infection and the van broke down....

Finally built a table for my new Sliding Compound Miter saw....  Used up all the extra wood sitting around...  Just need some casters for it so that it is mobile...

We got the halloween decorations out...... and carved pumpkins.... I hope they last till halloween....

Speaking of halloween... no fireworks this year.  Most of the cities/towns around us have banned them this year after rising incidents of mis-use of them...
 

10/21/05 09:25 am - Jinny Simms does it again..

Wow...

This woman totaly manages to fuck it up again....

Here we have the most respected Mediator in the Province (if not the country) and she manages to piss him off....

Then today she says that they will not recomend acceptance of his recomendations unless the Gov gives them written assurances that they will put class size and learning conditions in the school act...

then she says, talkign to bill good "we have moved from our possition a great deal, we have agreed that class size will be in the school act... for now"....

WTF Jim Sinclair should slap this woman a few times.......

I guess she needs to save some face.... recover somthing from the ship called Titanic that she has captianed these last few months........
 

10/20/05 09:56 am - Fucking Great...

The BCTF has fucked us again...

Their demands from the press conference earlier today has now caused Vince Reddy to come to the conclusion that that the Gov and teacher will not reach a mediated agreement, and he will make non-binding recomnendations later today...

Thanks a fucking lot BCTF.
 

10/20/05 09:31 am - Can today get any better....

The TWU and Telus have reached an agreement.... and guess what...

Its almost exactly like the one Telus Imposed back in the summer, and the one they wanted the union to vote on but the TWU executive would not pass on for a vote....  Though I hear some news that its actually worse for the Telus employees...

Perfect!!!!!  They deserve it for picketing the busses those fuckers!
 

10/20/05 09:20 am - Guess what all you ILO junkies....

When you spout off about the BC Gov. being in violation of International Law...  WE ARE NOT!!!!

The ILO has ZERO legal jurisdiction in Canada... or any country for that matter.  It is an international Convention!!!!!!  That is all....

Jinny Simms just held a news conference outlining what they are going to present to Vince Reddey.... BEFORE SHE HAS EVEN PRESENTED IT..... What fucking kind of negotiating is that..... 

That said.... Some of their proposals are an improvement over past demands...  They want the BC Schools Act ammended to include class size limits in grades 4 - 12 (already exists in grades K - 3... so all you people saying there are no limits can suck on that)... And they want ratios of counselors, librarians, support teachers set in the Act...

That is not bad, but not good enought either....... because the school districts are all different...  they all have different needs....

They did say they wanted a rasie in year two and three... NOT GUNA HAPPEN...
 

10/20/05 09:06 am

One day to go till we find out what, if any, penelty the Judge imposes.

The BCTF wants POWER and nothing more.  It's not about the kids, about the education environment.  It is about the BCTF wanting the FINAL say over education.  Well FUCK THEM....  It's my kids education and I want a say in it.  While I am not an expert on education, thats why teachers (not the BCTF thay can all take a flying leap off a very tall building) should be involved, and administrators and Gov. representatives.  We all have valid input.  I don't want my kids education used as a barganing tool during contract negotiations.

I want the BCTF to treat my kids with respect.  They are not doing that right now.  I could care less about the extra cost on me, I can absorb the extra 20 bucks a day (but you better believe I have signed on to the BC Tax Payers Federation Class Action Suit against the BCTF, anything to fuck them over).  I just want my kids back in school, though not at any cost right now.  I fully support the Gov. not giving in to ANY of the BCTF demands.  I have sent an email to the Premier expressing my support for their current course of action.

BC elected the Liberals to run our province, not the BCTF!!!
 

10/19/05 11:27 am - Something Positive....

I have borowed my buddies table saw and will be using it to build Christine a new Sweing/crafting station.

I bought the wood the other day, a full sheet of plywood for the shelves/table top (Good one Side... it was half the price of birch cabnate grade plywood (its 71 bucks a board)), strips of helmoc trim, 2X4's table bracing/mounting, 1X2 for shelving support.  Having the table saw will make it much quicker for me to do all teh cutting... I can set the fence to say, 12 inches, and cut all my shelving quickly....  and set teh angle of the blade to 45 degrees and cut all my trim.....

Once it is build I will stain and varnish it... hopefully it looks good....

Just don't know what color of stain to use.....
 

10/19/05 09:25 am

If I hear another teacher, BCTF executive, BCFED member whine that the UN has found the BC Gov in violation of ILO laws.... ITS NOT A FUCKING LAW!!!!  The ILO has no jurisdiction here.......

Yet they won't abide by a Judges COURT ORDER!!!!

These same people that throw the ILO ruling in the face of the Gov. are the same people that will fight against WTO when it suits them....

The longer this goes on the more contempt I have for the BCTF/BCFED and the more my views become cemented that these people don't give one lick about kids....

I am also now starting to lose respect for teachers.  They made their point, the people of BC are behind them, we support their quest to improve the class room situation... NOW GET THE FUCK BACK TO WORK!!!!!!!

The next few months are going to be good..... cause there are many many Gov. employee contracts up for negotiation... and I have a feeling the Unions are going to attempt to fuck the gov over because of this....  I think the unions would be making a mistake on this one.
 

10/18/05 02:54 pm

When I hear people call in to talk shows supporting the teachers and saying "It was legal for them to strike until the friday, until the Gov passed a law making it illegal for them to strike and forcing them back to work"...

For fuck sake people get your facts strait before you form an oppinion....

The teachers are violating the Esential service laws from over two years ago.  The LRB had not ruled yet on what strike action the teachers could take when they walked out...  It was the LRB that ruled the teachers where in an illegal strike.  It was a judge that found them in contempt....

Get your facts fucking strait before you speak you fucktards....

If they don't like the law that extended the current contract.... then fight it in court..... 



Wooot...  a possible break, the BCTF is meeting with Vince Redey........ Maybe he will convince them to go back....
