Why does Sarah Palin Scare the Crap out of Me?

Why does Sarah Palin Scare the Crap out of Me?

What is it about the former Governor of Alaska that spooks me out?  She’s cute.  She’s hot in a Tina Fey kinda way, but she seems…. kinda crazed. Like the mixing of power and guns.  If Alexander Haig was in drag he’d look nowhere as hot as Sexy Sarah, but damn….Al would sorta jump like […]

L I N K “Even so, they were nipped by the resurgent Liberals, whose final Elections Canada tally for March to June this year was just over $4 million. In fact, the Liberals, at a cumulative $5.9 million for the first six months of 2009 under Ignatieff’s leadership, are very close to raising what they […]

The Bloc Wants EI Changes – Well so do I! EDITORIAL

Geez I wish Gilles Duceppe was a Federalist.   He’s such a strong Politician.    Now he wants changes to the EI system.  I do too.   I’m not sure I want 360 hours to be the line, but I think it needs to be at one standard with certain supplements based on area or needs. Actually I […]

Kilger for MP Rumblings?

I’m hearing quite a few people talk about our Cornwall Mayor Robert “Bob” Kilger returning to the Federal scene and defeat the current Conservative MP who besides not attending Grand Chief Mitchell’s swearing in ceremony,  has been very not noticed by Cornwall residents during the Bridge Crisis. I put in a call to the Mayor’s […]

Grant vs MacDonald – Kilger separates the boys – Flagpole Blues for Cornwall’s Francophone Community

A weird and wooly night at Cornwall City Council and I left early! The main event was the final decision over Le Monuement de la Francophonie.  The Richelieu Club wanted an 80 foot flag pole over a monument to honor the contributions of the Francophone community in Cornwall; specifically at Lamoureux Park. (LINK) I personally […]

Bridge Open for today – Trap or Solution?

Bridge Open for today – Trap or Solution?

I personally was very disturbed to read about the bridge being open this morning. Not that I don’t want the bridge open, but in the manner that it was done. To arbitrarily take action like this without consulting the MCA to me is just wrong if that’s what happened as reported here. It’s upping the […]
