Working in Ottawa today -Porn, Canadian Style

Good morning folks,

I will be working in Ottawa today

If politics bores you, keep reading, the porn is at the end.

You may have surmised that I generally hold politicians in contempt and regard their motives with suspicion.  This week Hillary is on the block, not because of what she said, but because she denied saying it.

Two days ago while at a speaking engagement with the Boys and Girls club of Long Beech (Recreation and Park Association Join Partnership for a Healthier America), Hillary made certain comments about Putin's movements into the Ukraine, specifically into Crimea.

Hillary stated, “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s,” and then she continued with, “All the Germans that were ... the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”

Now here's the thing... her assessment is correct.  All too often we hear the Hitler card played where it just does not apply, like when some Tea-Party play thing reacts to Obama's half hearted attempt at bringing about some Social Justice and introduces a Healthcare bill.. "He's like Hitler!" -- no Biff, you must have missed History 101.  but Hillary, yeah baby, you actually nailed a good comparison.

Putin did put Russian troops on the Ukrainian peninsula in Crimea, insisting that Russia has a right to protect its interests and Russian-speakers in Crimea and elsewhere in Ukraine.  Now bear in mind that Russian-speaking peoples make up about 60% of the population of the Ukraine, so protect the Russian-speakers from whom?

From this writer's seat it just looks like Putin took advantage of pro-Democracy protests as an easy entrance into occupation.

But Hilary did an about face yesterday, and now denies that she made the comparison of Putin to Hitler.  Odd.. go back up and read the quote again and you will read that she clearly invoked the hitler card.

But no, Hillary now states,  "What I said yesterday is that the claims by President Putin and other Russians that they had to go into Crimea and maybe further into eastern Ukraine because they had to protect the Russian minorities ... is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s when Germany under the Nazis kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland, in Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe.".

"I'm not making a comparison certainly, but I am recommending that we perhaps can learn from this tactic that has been used before".

Yeah.. Hillary, sweetheart, you are making a comparison, and it was apt.


"Um.. Uncle Daniel didn't you promise PORN?"

Yes, yes I did.  Yesterday the CRTC decided enough was enough.. or maybe I should say was not enough and issued a reprimand to the Canadian Adult Movie Channel AOV for not airing enough Canadian porn.

The CRTC want to see at least 8 and a half hours of Canadian made porn per day.  But that's not all.. no.  Closed captioning, where is the closed captioning and equally important, where is the audio descriptions of the activity on screen?

Now these descriptive video voice-over guys usually deliver in a low monotone voice.. 

"A pizza delivery guy walks into the apartment carrying a flat cardboard box.  From the bedroom walks a shapely young women wearing a thin negligee.  oh no, she has suffered a wardrobe malfunction.. Bow Chicka Wow Wow! out has popped a set of double entendres!"

But the real opportunity here is reminiscent of the CanCon boom in the 70's for Canadian Music, that brought us Ann Murray, BTO, Foghat.. and now CanPorn!  An opportunity for Canadian young men and women to show their stuff! to become stars!

Have a great, don't hesitate to try out a new career!
