Ottawa also has a
House of Infamy

Victoria doesn't have a monopoly on having a taxpayer supported institution that tends to specialize in absurd and rude behaviour, that would be amusing if there weren't so many real issues to be addressed. The stonepile in James Bay also is not unique in being full of overpaid and fancy dressed folks who act as if they are completely un-accountable to those who elect them and pay their way. The Major League version of the Legislative Assembly in Victoria is on the Ontario bank of the Ottawa River and this guy used to be the frog with the biggest lily pad in that pond (or sewer).

The jaw that walks like a man
lies like a rug!*

Sometimes it starts to seem discouraging to be abused by Gordo and his gang and have that compounded by the loyal(?) opposition's apparent desire to "go along to get along." So when a friend sent the following little joke to me and it made me laugh, I thought it would be nice to share it with my readers. So much else is just too depressing to think about and feel so powerless to affect.


A man died and went to Heaven.

As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'

St. Peter answered, 'These are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock move.'

'Oh', said the man. 'Whose clock is that?'

'That's Mother Teresa's', replied St. Peter.. 'The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'

'Incredible', said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?'

St. Peter responded, 'that's Abraham Lincoln's clock: the hands have moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire life.'

'Where's Brian Mulroney's clock?' Asked the man..

St Peter replied, Jesus has it in his office. He uses it as a ceiling fan.
