Good morning folks,
I will be working in Ottawa today.
A few updates..
Alun (the Welsh guy to whom I gave a black eye last week) is near fully recovered with just a hint of his black eye, just a wee line of bruising along the Zygomatic bone. So after game play at the pub last night, I did the right thing. I bought Alun a Guiness. This prompted two things.
a) Alun was quite surprised that I had picked up his tab. I explained that it is an easy rule of mine. If I give you a black eye, I will buy you a beer.
b) Leo, sitting at the end of the table became rather agitated. "What the hell!", Leo exclaimed, "Daniel breaks 3 of my ribs and takes me out of the game for five weeks and didn't buy me a beer!". Yeah.. Sorry about that Leo, but you see, you ran into me and subsequently hit the deck. Whereas I fired a line drive into Alun's eye (albeit protected by safety equip).
The bottom line, if you had blackened your eye on the way down, then I would have bought you a beer, better luck next time :)
Next out of the gate..
Mayor Rob F. F. Ford's friends.. what a bunch. You can headline a newspaper with that and not even bother writing an article. Allesandro Lesi, described by friend Ford as "a stand up guy, following the straight and narrow" was arrested yesterday for a variety of drug trafficking and conspiracy charges. This same guy claims that he supplied drugs to Ford. The F. F. needs a better class of friends.
Anything else this fine Thursday morning?
Obama vs The Tea Party? Much ado about nothing if you ask me. Obamacare is too little and will not do the job. While yes, it eliminates ineligibility so all can buy health insurance, it is still for-profit insurance. So I am sure that the insurance companies will still shaft it to the sick and injured. CLAIM DENIED!. The Obamacare plan does nothing to provide universal coverage, nothing to provide equal care, and nothing to provide any cost containment. Don't worry it will be a profit hay day for the insurance companies.
Why is the GOP/TeaParty against it? Well it is a Democrat party initiative, therefore by fiat it must be bad, and although a thousand miles from an actual Socialist program, the Right thinks it is.
Dumb, dumb, dumber.
Lastly, Small rown hero makes a comeback!
Yes, after three years since his likeness was torn down and removed from his birth place, Losif Dzhugashvili will once again stand proud in the town square of Gori, Georgia.
That's right kids, that fun loving guy better known as Joseph Stalin will have his six meter statue once again erected. It's been 60 years since his death, but Stalin still provokes conflicting emotions in Georgia. Murderous dictator or hero that defeated Hitler? Creator of the Gulag prison system and horrific 'purges' over three decades, or bringer of idealism and stability?
In the words of Gregory Shvedov (on the Board for Memorial - Human Rights org), "Maybe he was evil.. [but] everyone respected us.. everyone was afraid of our country". Effectively I think he is trying to say, Yes he was a son of a bitch, but he was their son of a bitch.
Have a great day.

My opinion: the issue isn't whether or not the U.S. health care program is good, bad, or indifferent. It was an election promise of the Democrats, the voters said 'yes' so Democrats won the Presidency and a Senate majority. Now a minority of wing-nuts in the Republican-majority House [the body that controls finance bills] has held the rest of the Republican House members, plus the President & Senate, to ransom because they don't like the idea of health care on a national system of insurance.
At bottom, it's undemocratic [no pun intended!] for a minority element in one party to block the will of the majority electorate represented by the President & Senate. [Should be cause for a Supreme Court decision on constitutionality.]
Hello de Toqueville! His view of America's democracy? Would end in demogoguery. Welcome to Tea Party cuckoo-land.
Amen sister, you are preaching to the choirDelete
