At Least I'm Not A Microbe

Pretty strong comeback, huh? (Note: I never say eh!) The title of this post refers to the fact that I have just joined (link is in the sidebar) and they have just ranked me, well, see for yourself.

So the "haunted hose" are no more, well, at least they're not red anymore. I couldn't be happier for Terry Francona, who's playing career with the Montreal Expos (R.I.P) started off with such promise.

On to more serious issues...
I saw part of a "town hall meeting" on CBC the other night, which was held in a town in Pennsylvania, and it got me thinking, the current government has really made a mess of things overseas. I'm tempted to call George W. Bush "The Teflon President" because he's been allowed to get away with so much, then again, that's what they said about Clinton. However, Bush does seem to be strong and decisive, and so what if he continually makes mistakes, refuses to learn from them and makes the rest of the world hate him? Kerry, though, does not impress me too much, he does come across as inconsistent and unpredictable. If he should happen to win, it will probably be the "at least he's not W" vote. Many people who are not impressed with Bush would probably like to stick with "the devil that they know". I guess when you look at it like that, the choice is not so clear cut.
Many of you seem to think along the lines of Venezuelans, "He may be an idiot, but he's OUR idiot!" as I believe one pro-Chavez protester said. One thing that you as Americans should think about is the 22nd Amendment. If Kerry is elected, you will be able to vote him out in the next election. If Bush is re-elected, he won't be allowed to run again, unless he decides to, well, you know what I'm getting at.
Think about it, if Bush didn't do whatever he wanted and care about the repercussions in his first term, just imagine what he'll do in his next term. For him, tomorrow will never come anyway, so what the hell...

More on Dubya, some dirt on Halliburton, and remember, the outcome is still far from certain.

Closer to home...
So the provinces and territories have received $28 billion in so-called equalization payments. It sound like a lot of money, but doesn't it seem that Ontario is the only place that is satisfied with it? Isn't that always the case? Well, Alberta also seems satisfied, but do they really need any handouts from the federal government? Aren't they the only debt free province? Just asking.

So now the feds are cutting funds to the RCMP and CSIS. As if they needed any more cuts. I'm feeling less and less secure all the time. Does anyone feel the same way?

Lastly, the wheels of justice apparently need to be replaced. We can only hope that Stephen Truscott's pardon won't be posthumous
