well, imagine that…no pic! sometimes what you can’t see is scarier then what you can…for instance, the waste of time and money to stage the 2010 Old-Limp-Pricks while tens of thousands of Canadians remain homeless, the country runs as a theocracy, rights have been stripped from First Nations, Gays, and ‘brown skinned people’.
B.C. has instituted what is very close to the War Measures Act by allowing police the ability to ‘force’ (their word choice) homeless people into shelters and jails during extreme winter (yes, we’ve already read ‘Vancouver Street Sweep’ to hide as many homeless and us bums during the five ring fiasco). And let’s not forget that the cops have been granted the power to enter a house or apartment and tear down any ‘unofficial olympic signage’ (in the name of protecting commercialism, guffaw, guffaw, and what is really tactics to keep protests down).
With the Old-Limp-Pricks Torch having made it’s way to Victoria to begin it’s Canadian voyage , protestors decided not to confine themeselves to allotted corridors….we’s gittin’ serious here and who knows what will happen to anything as innocent again as Jaghi Sing catapulting teddy bears and going to jial? Does this mean Olympic Mascot ephigy tossers will end up doing time in Mission or Kingston, or wherever? Oh dear, poor little Todo or whatever the hell they’re calling these anime characters , got burned – hmmm- just like the unrealizing public.
K, time for supper now at the homeless shelter i’m in…good food here and yes, i’m lucky, because O’Canada, you need many, many more of these.
We’ve had breakfast (cold cereal, scratchy dry toast) and what goes most through my mind is ‘my, how close i am to complaining yet riding on the thought that i am so lucky compared to most in the world’. it’s a strage paradox to live.
the most excitement here is when someone starts a fight (lots of verbal stuff goes down between the guys but so far no fisticuffs). i had a roommate last night, she came in while i was sleeping, her phone alarmed at 7am. she was all freaked out as couldn’t find her clothes. i guess whoever did her intake didn’t explain properly about the clothes donation closet (really, they have some very nice threads in there) and how all your clothes get washed before being handed back to you (a rule i like).
but, hmm, for lack of better creatvivity this cold, rainy morning i’ll call her ‘ms. freak-out). myself and others tried to expain to her about the clothing closet but she only got louder and freakier saying, ‘i’m not wearing donated clothing because then i’ll look like a dirty pig and i have a work experience interview this morning and you guys are all making me late for it cause you won’t give me my clothes back”.
whatever, have a nice day, ms. freakout…..she just can’t wrap her head around things yet and i hope she calms down, for her own good.
i worked on a guy’s third degree burns last night and it felt good to be able to relieve him of some pain. then it was a woman with a head ache from the swine flu shot. another woman had to go to the hospital as her swine flu shot reaction was severe. hmmmm. they want us all to participate now by wiping down the door handles etc. every two hours with bleach….i can’t say if that will really help or not but it is a pro-active approach and really, we need to keep busy here.
meantime, the b.c. liberals have been caught with their pants down AGAIN over olympic spending…they are trying to find a venue for a high falutin’ evening to schmooze with the rich who may be interested in investing in b.c.. my answer is, of course, to have it at a homeless shelter so we can all meet face to face and they can actually see who they’re screwing over. in other words, civilizatiion is measured by how one takes care of one’s own….yes i’m luckier then a myriad of people around the world….but why should the business community fart out pati foi de gras when i’m farting dry , scratchy toast?
now it’s off to the pharmacy for me to get my prescriptions refilled. i’ll stretch that visit out to have a tour of london drugs
OOPS! not that kind of shelter….more da real kine….and so , folks, this is scout comin’ at ya from the north shore homeless shelter in beautiful down town north vancouver.
it’s getting damned cold out and i’m tired and weary from bouncing around from place to place so will hole up here and HOPE they find me housing soon!!!!
this shelter is like being in an institutionalized hostel of some sorts….save that we get three squares a day. room accesss after breakfast is only from 12:30 to 2pm (it’s nice to grab a quick nap as sleeping is kind of on and off as there’s not enough blankets)….other then that there ‘s two computers and a big screen tv that can be on from 6-11pm.
the male to female ratio is quite high , i’d say about 3/4 men, which has me a bit baffled and yet not, iffin’ ya know what i mean.
and that’s about it for now. more reports later from the ‘not much happening here’ department.
she’s done it again!!!!! i can’t believe it…..Wandering Coyote has correctly guessed former prez of Pakistan, PERVEZ MUSHARRAF. i think i quit
The Olympic torch is lit and on it’s way, after mega testing done by sumo wrestlers, Su Shee and Upyur Goziama successfully did their part for the test run.
While the torch has many miles to journey yet, it will culminate with the sumo boys , after having consumed several barrels of beans (pork was eliminted because of swine flu fears), blow a big one on laser sight line aimed at Mt. Garibaldi. Mt. Garibaldi holds status as the next , new ski hill in British Columbia.
Test runs went fine, save for a worker who got in the way and now supports 3rd degree burns. Su Shee and Upyer Gozamia experienced minor hair singeing.
VANCOCK committee spokesperson, Gaseous Clay, says the worker is fine and feels honoured his burns depict a giant Jesus on his chest. The countdown to the OWElympics (thank Alison at Creekside for having coined that phrase) is fast approaching with still not enough money in sight.
B.C. Premier Gordoff Campbell says he will introduce legislation to have the homeless wear vests with the Olympic logo on them and all money collected going towards this mega athletic event. Campbell will not let Olympic beggars keep a red cent of the take, saying, ‘They got themselves into their mess on their own so they can damn well give back to a good cause”. Former Alberta Premier, Ralph Klein has been appointed as CEO of the collection committee, while Social Developement Minister, Rich Colemanstove will oversee the lighting of the ass torch. He warns, “If anyone gets in the way they’re gonna get burned and our province is just not into burning anyone except bums…like real bums, you know , the kind with addictions and mental illness that we will force into shelters”.
According to CBC News, the Swine Flu Vaccine is finally here and ready to be injected into the arms of willing victims.
The serum is made from fetal pigs, which has many a high school science teacher up in arms as they say there won’t be enough fetal pigs for their students to disect.
According to H1N1 source Dr. Sow Inclined, Canada had a tough time sorting out priorities – was it best to let kids cut up unborn swine or let the conspiracy hit harder at home by experimenting on youth, the elderly, and ethnic groups.
When asked if it is morally right to be using pig fetuses, Reverend Porky Porcine of the Pro-Life group Boaring for Power, said, “of course it’s right. We are only concerned with human fetuses. Pigs have no intelligence, why do you think Jews don’t eat pork? We are human and build great things like nuclear war heads, chem trails, and Prime Sinisters like Stephen Harper. Does a pig do anything like that…NO! They sit around in their own muck and make flus. Hog farmers around the world were desperate to pay their production costs so contacted the World Health Organization and Wille Nelson to gain more rights for farmers. We’ve even convinced schools to eliminate stories like ‘The 3 Little Piggies” from the elementary curriculum, and senior and junior highschools to drop “Lord of the Flies”. ”
It’s not yet known when the vaccine will start to be used on Canadian guinea pigs, but that’s all in keeping with cob roller politics.
Hey Canada, enjoy your ration of bacon vaccine soon!!! And remember, Porky Pig is a terrorist.
Chretien was flabbergasted , knowing this award has gone to greats like ABBA, Captain and Tenile, The Carpenters and Barry Manilow.
Cretien, a long time rock tosser was exited the Queen chose a Flying-V knock off and hinted at playing for Michael Iggy Pop to bring the Liberals standings up. At the time of this post , Chretien had only this to say, “Well, ya know, I tank da Queen and will give my playing new added bonus ’cause I wanna be da best”.
The Queen had no comment but could be seen shuffling her feet like they were itchy. Oh, pardon me, a report just came in to say that’s the way she dances.
This time it’s a male and i’ve double checked my sidebar to make sure he wasn’t on it. believe me
Who’s this newcomer onto the Alberta scene? Why, it’s Condi North, again (the governor general having assumed the position with her false stand on First Nations justice)? Why it’s Danhell Smith, vying for attention with her ‘Wildrose Alliance Party’. What’s that name all about? Yes, it’s Alberta’s official flower but how did people get the nerve to utilize it for ‘just another party ‘ cuz Ms. Smith (oops, I probably should have said Mrs.) thinks she can bring a new formed Western Alliance in to give the Conservatives a run for their money. Oh yes, and topple Ed Stalmach.
Maybe she CAN do all this , I wouldn’t want to wager any bets as all you have in the end is more of the same Tory bullshit wrapped in a pretty package. If Sarah Palin got where she is today (which I’m not sure WHERE that exactly is, perhaps the political morgue?) then let this woman attempt her high diving act, cause I came to see a high diving act and i’m a gonna see a high diving act. Check this woman out, she’s a Condi/Pallin hybrid.
Really, Ms. Smith, are you having lots of luncheons with Preston Manning or what???
My friend and sister, anna marie, sent me this E award , like, probably last year. My head space was so boggled at the time I just couldn’t figure it out (having done my sidebar eons ago i just couldn’t remember how to place it there).
So, many thanks to anna marie at Verbena-19, who continues to post in a most excelling way!!!!
Now to choose my fave 10 blogs …a difficult task to say the least. Some are for their humour or consitency, some for their unique insight, some for their high, in-depth research, etc. etc. etc.
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
NO Shit, eh?
It’s called ‘make ‘em happy’ and the Governor General is doing her best to be a part of the charade. Most people remember the GG as host of ‘the passionate eye’ where she would bring us stories of despair. Now she’s working to cover up despair. Only she’s not looking n the right direction.
————————————————————-Michaëlle Jean relaunched the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission in an emotional ceremony at Rideau Hall on Thursday.
“When the present does not recognize the wrongs of the past, the future takes its revenge,” Jean told an audience that included residential school survivors. “For that reason, we must never, never turn away from the opportunity of confronting history together — the opportunity to right a historical wrong.”
oh yes, words and money but no action. most of my First Nations brothers and sisters say, ‘so what, where’s what we’re really owed’ about the Apology Bill. The GG still holds all the legal work of the Mohawk Clan Mothers, but still, at my last count, has not submitted the documents to the Queen. Even though a letter was sent to her by the Queen to deliver the docs. Nice work, Michaelle. So now you go around hugging and talking about mending the past, when one simple little gesture would do and end the on-going genocide.
This is one of those stories I’ll be watching for because all the pomp, ceremony, and forked tongues that’s put out there by the Conservative Party is just bunk. pure, unadulterated bunk. That there would be more apologess and Stephen Harper thinking it will earn him votes (even though he’s from the Tom Flanagan School of Genocide).
Harper knows damn well that Canada is operating as an illegal nation because they won’t follow Rule of Law, and that rule of law is based on Queen Ann’s royal order of 1704, stating that Canada and the United States must recognize indifenous peoples as nations and all negotiating must be between Canada (and the u.s. where applicable), the First Nation peoples, and a third, neutral party.
So, if we look at Caledonia, nothing has been done wrong by Six Nations. The reason Harper continues to let The Province of Ontario deal with matters, the longer it takes to unravel….Harper’s a creep , but a clever creep, so he won’t send any feds in as long as he can…after all, if he sends in troops then the government knows it is admitting to it’s crimes.
Sound hard? Sound difficult? NO. It’s just plain old hard work, and plenty of it …..until it all falls into place.
So, Condi-North, what’ya gonna say about all that, or will you remain a puppet of the Harper Government? Seems to me it’s far better to get our own shit sorted out, rather then giving the Governor General’s home nation, Haiti, millions in aide. Sure some will shed tears of what they think is joy, but too many FN’s are as blind to what sovereignty is all about.
Meantime, Michaelle, you are acting like Cruella deVille, cuz what you think and do is pretty evil stuff and First Nations are not white with black spots dogs. RrrrrrrrWoof!!!!!!
The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was check CBC’s headlines. It was depressing…..the headlines have now changed , however I have to ask myself some curious questions. What happened to the protests of the ’60′s/70′s? oh right, the cops shoot to kill now – wait, that’s not it because they would shoot back then (leoanard pelltier comes to mind).
and what happened to protest songs being played on the radio? oh right, unless it’s NPR or co-op stations like in vancouver, it has to generate listeners and potential listeners would far rather go shopping in a mall then hear the truth.
This is it, folks, this is how the baby boomers act now….they give the political party of their choice some campaign funds then get back in their BMW’s knowing they won’t have to listen to all the crap because they donated. convenient, n’est pas? and youth today, well most of them are sitting back because protesting might not land them in the university of choice.
nice work, boomers in beemers. the politicians will take all the blame and responsibility. you gave to the karma bank while on your way to do power yoga. and the times? ’they are a’changing’ and it looks like too many of you were only weekend hippies and can’t take the risk of lending your name or money for anything as dicey as war protest. And THEN, you sit around talking with buddies about budhism , but you don’t REALLY practise it.
over and out. 10-4. roger wilcox.
Tsk Tsk! Nova Scotia MP Gerald Keddy handed over a cheque to go towards Chester , Nova Scotia’ hockey rink. Accepting the cheque is “Miss Cheddar Cheese’ , a long time tory supporter and treasurer of the “Save the Blue Nose” foundation.
One problem: The Conservative logo was on the cheque and the opposition is calling ‘dirty pool‘. Or is that ‘dirty rink’? At any rate , Keddy is probably going to get slammed by Harper, because, after all, Harper doesn’t want any of his MP’s to do anything.
The good part of the story is that the Tories have come out with a whole line of conservative logo underwear. Now you too can don anything from boxers to bras. All proceeds go to the ‘Re-elect Stephen Harper’ campaign.
I know I’ll be sure to have a brain fart and vote Tory while wearing my fave Fruit of the Loom with the BIG C logo.
I don’t believe it, that wily coyote has won again!!!!!!!
Sooooooooooooooooooo, i fucked up royally and had chosen margaret thatcher and when the crunch came down i was informed that i had already used her. shit, man!
Here’s to a new game, and again, it’s a female. AND i checked my sidebar
The Nobel Peace Prize handed to Barak Obama? Peace…let me see – ah yes, moving his troops out of Iraq? YES! Moving them from Iraq to Afghanistan? WHOOOOO NELLY!!!
I can see the politics over this selection: The Nobel team just made the war in Afghanistan legitimate.
Puzzling, ain’t it?
When will Obama announce that he’s GOD?
If Stevie Blunder hammered out a Beatles classic, then it’s time the opposition counter with Jumping Jack Flash and the Rolling Pebbles. Stevie’s poll ratings went up after playing and singing ‘A Little Help from My Fiends‘ so it’s time for a drum solo from Gilles Charlie What? Duceppe, and fast guitar work from Elizabeth Knock Bill Why Man? May and Michael Keith Bitchards Ignatieff and of course, Jack Mick Stagger Layton.
So how about a hand for The Rolling Pebbles – and remember, it’s rumoured Stevie may counter the counter with Abba.
This time it’s a female. Rules are on the sidebar. Good Luck!!!
Those kooky Cons are at it again! Now they want to introduce fartilizer tests on random drivers. Yes, that’s right. In pre-byelection ramble Justass Minister, Big Job Nicholson, wooed Mothers Against Drunk Drivers with his proposal. As it is a driver must stay in the car and confine their farts to themselves if pulled over. With the new random testing, a hi-tech obnoxious gas meter can be shoved up anyone’s arse, including your grandmother’s. The fart-o-meter measure the alcohol/methane level and if you test positive a pair of depends is handed to you and you are taken to the station.
Police Union spokesperson Stinky Bottoms says he will only allow his members to use the device if gloves and masks are supplied, ensuring safety. He is also concerned that the Swine Flu may be transmitted and is recommending hand sanitizer also be supplied , except to First Nations cops.
If the gasses legislation passes wind we could expect to see bare butts flashing on roadsides as soon as January in an effort to demonstrate to Olympic visitors that Ottawa knows how to cover it’s own sphincter.
