The Harper demon who clearly made it all worse

 
harper
The misplaced values,  lack of decency, lack of morality, lack of street sense ,lack of common sense,  out-of-touch, revengeful Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper has not only cleary degenerated in the eyes of many but faces to lose his office now too.
 
As Canadians face the most difficult economic times in 80 yearsNot a time to play politicsChess-loving PM body checked by opponentsOpposition parties threaten to bring down minority government and Bad time to play political games   

It was and is the Prime Minister Harper himself who is the main insult to democracy. Harper miscalculated and lost the last election and did not become a majority government even again but now he made it all worse by showing us all what he is really like still too.. I had already written immediately after the last federal lection too that “And all persons are merely dreaming that the new Parliament will next usher in an era of co-operation between both the governing party and its opponents as long as Stephen Harper is around. That is not his style for he clearly and wrongfully loves to be a bully, to body check others.  And Harper now will clearly have to endure the successes and failures of minority government again by his own poor contributions to it .” 

Up until now, the Canadian Conservative  Prime Minister Stephen Harper had basically  been able to get away with his strong-arm tactics, his autocratic tactics, his disrespecting others, his  “Nixonian tactics,” his power-monger politics in the midst of a global economic crisis last week clearly had also showed to all that there was little change in his negative behaviors.  All Rules of decency and order  apply only to all the others but not to Stephen Harper it seems still . “It was like to hell with the rules. I do what I want.”   “How can Canadians trust this government to get our economy back on track when it’s all over the map?” Liberal House leader Ralph Goodale So Canada’s opposition parties have agreed in principle to form a coalition that would topple Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government.
 
Public confidence of Stephen Harper  and his leadership  has been badly shaken by the events of the past few days. As the Conservatives continue their pattern of negative behavior, setting aside the country’s interests in pursuit of their own, “Mr. Harper has poisoned the well for this Parliament, and has contributed to the political destabilization of Canada during a great economic crisis.”

The Liberals said they are considering introducing a motion declaring no confidence in the minority Conservative government. A Harper defeat on such a vote could set the stage for another election or give the opposition a chance to form a government.

The Liberals and New Democrats have also agreed to a coalition government structure that would give them a majority of seats, a New Democrat party official said Sunday. In the new government, the Liberals would have 19 Cabinet ministers and the New Democrats will have six. A spokesman for the Bloc agreed, noting the existing Conservative government is still refusing to provide a stimulus plan for the economy. The third member of the proposed coalition, Bloc Quebecois, would hold no Cabinet seats under the deal. Bloc leader Gilles Duceppe has said the party has no interest in governing Canada but will back the coalition.  Together, the three parties hold 163 parliamentary seats compared to the Conservatives’ 143 seats. Independents hold the two remaining seats. Liberals and New Democrats disagree on Canada’s involvement in the war in Afghanistan but it won’t prevent them from governing together. The New Democrats oppose the war, while the Liberals support it. 
 
Prime minister, Stephen Harper,  his cabinet and senior officials in repose scrambled all weekend to derail opposition negotiations to supplant the Conservatives with a Liberal-NDP coalition supported by the Bloc. The Tories are also using the crisis to issue an “emergency” funding appeal to their donorship base. As well as setting forth their smear campaigns. The Conservative’s claim that a coalition government would have no legitimacy does not accord with Harper’s own position on the matter just four years ago in September 2004, Harper wrote to then-governor general Adrienne Clarkson to argue that she should “consider all your options” if the Liberal minority of Paul Martin was to fall on a confidence vote. “We respectfully point out that the opposition parties, who together constitute a majority in the House, have been in close consultation,” Harper wrote. Harper co-signed the letter with Layton and Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe.  

As Canadians face the most difficult economic times in 80 years this was, is Not a time to play politics. It was, is Bad time to play political games  So the  Chess-loving PM was  body checked by opponents. Opposition parties threaten to bring down minority government altogether or replace it. 

“Just weeks ago Harper spoke of the need for a more nonpartisan approach to governing in the financial crisis. This week’s events prove that was mere lip service. Harper is more concerned about crippling political opponents and is willing to do so on the backs of Canadians frightened for their very future. It’s shameful.  ” He clearly  is a demon obsessed with getting more power.
 
Economic crisis is no time for political games  What is wrong with Stephen Harper? Days after talking about the need to put partisanship aside to deal with the economic crisis, the prime minister unleashes an undemocratic — even thuggish — attack on the opposition parties. His actions come at the expense of Canadians, introducing more uncertainty, including the threat of an election, at the most damaging time. And it is oddly self-destructive. At a point when many moderate voters were prepared to give the Conservatives a chance to demonstrate their ability to govern in the interests of all Canadians, Harper acted as a partisan bully, reinforcing concerns about his judgment. The classic way for a government to stimulate a flagging economy is to pump money into infrastructure. Road-building and government-funded construction can create jobs through one-time projects that increase spending on local materials and provide the country with something it actually needs, without creating a long-term spending problem. That’s the way Ottawa should go, economists say. In its Throne Speech a few weeks ago, the government promised infrastructure spending to pump money into the economy. It would appear that Minister Flaherty has forgotten that promise.  What planet do Canada’s Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty and Prime Minister Harper live on?

FOR SOME CONSERVATIVES, WHO FALSELY, UNREALISTICALLY  ONLY CAN SEE AS ALL OF THE OPPOSITION PARTIES AS AN ENEMY TO BE KILLED, THEIR NOW  WINNING AT ANY COSTS STILL IS THE MAIN ISSUE FOR THEM TOO.   

Stephen Harper, the supposedly competent political strategist,  who still could  not even unwisely foresee twice that he would only get a minority government, from the start of his election as PM, now desperately still again wants to achieve and to get have political power,  clearly figures his Conservative party based on the past received political donations alone has enough cash reserves for another future election that he intends to shortly force on us, wants to put the opposition parties at an economic, political disadvantage for the next foreseeable federal election.   Sadly too  Many Conservatives had been gleefully supportive of  the “poison pill”  the Conservative plan to slash $30 billion in taxpayer subsidies for political parties. The slash in a dictatorial, undemocratic, poorly calculated approach for any minority government especially now. And as  political fallout expands , Harper’s move is rightfully widely seen as a terrible political miscalculation putting Canada’s Conservative government is in peril, just five weeks after the last federal election, and Canada’s stability, in jeopardy at a time of economic crisis.  “A Conservative government source said yesterday the idea was Harper’s. Sources said “most” of the Conservative caucus is perplexed why the government moved to put such controversial measures in now. “It makes no sense,” said one.  To date, Harper has been a partial master at dividing and conquering his opponents but now he Harper rather has succeed instead  rather uniting them  predictable even. ” by moving to end the subsidy to all political parties, he has given the three opposition parties unity and purpose. It is a rare strategic blunder for Harper and a miscalculation not seen since (former PC prime minister Joe) Clark toppled himself in 1979.  Wiser Conservative insiders across the country are  flabbergasted.” Thus this Conservative government next will clearly fall without even them even being reassured of a re-election majority again. it would be constitutionally correct for the federal opposition parties to topple the Conservatives too. Harper as a result is now scrambling  to retain his political power against the coalition government.  

 Prime Minister Stephen Harper called an election to secure a majority, and failed to get one. Continues with his one step forward two step backyards leadership approach too. Mr. Harper now and all of us should reflect on where his cynical, bullying, combative, unChristlike approach has gotten him, the Conservative government’s apparent death wish , and how it has further destabilized our country during uncertain times. ” Thursday’s economic statement was an economic lame duck and a political boner. It revealed, among other things, the kind of Conservative Party that all but its core supporters suspected would eventually be outed: a group of ideologues, led by a Prime Minister who discarded his campaign sweater to reveal an economist with a tin heart and a politician who looks everywhere for political advantage. “ 

 Stephen Harper has to wear this political mess himself now too. He had thought he had set a deadly trap for his opponents but he himself undeniably fell into it now. That is what a Bully, ego manic deserves. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s clearly SELF CENTERED, SELFISH, crude political brinksmanship has taken an now finally admitted Canadian economic crisis and made it into a political crisis. The substance of the VALID opposition claims that is that the Conservative government had wrongfully failed to recognize the seriousness of Canada’s present economic situation and so to date it has not credibly presented a plan to stimulate the economy. Rather it has played indecent, dirty party politics instead, the Conservatives fearlessly and foolishly approach to try to bait their opponents has made all of the matters worse, for the Conservatives even had directly poked the opposition in the eye with a proposal to end public subsidies to political parties by trying to cut of funding to the opposition parties.  

So how stupid was the government in doing this. The cause of all this lunacy is the Conservatives themselves now too, and “the Conservatives never once mentioned cutting political subsidies during last month’s election campaign; the Prime Minister never raised it during his consultations with rival party leaders three weeks ago”. What were they now falsely thinking the political parties would take this false abuse lying down in a democracy? Rightfully the opposition’s reaction has ranged from outrage to a positive reaction. This is a political mess solely of Mr. Harper’s own making. Canada’s minority Conservative government, re-elected less than two months ago, could be toppled in the next few days .Two of the three Canadian opposition parties are seriously now negotiating to form a coalition government, which the third has agreed to support, if the government is defeated in a confidence vote in the House of Commons on the government’s updated budget forecast, which the opposition parties said doesn’t address the financial crisis. If the opposition effort is successful, it will mark the first time in Canadian history that a formal coalition has taken power from a sitting government. 

Naively Mr. Harper next still sounded unrealistic, and characteristically indifferent, in his televised address even attacking his his valid opposition opponents and falsely pronouncing that a coalition government is not an option. It is a realistic, real option in any democracy for Stephen Hamper’s present government is not a majority one but only a Minority one still and  as EVEN STEPHEN HARPER KNOWS AND THIS IS WHY HE STARTED TO FLINCH. Evident by Stephen Harper new time out to hopefully give his government another week to avert the full blown self doing crisis with his new submissive plan to push back the confidence motion a week, until Dec. 8, which he naively thinks next will buy him time to clean his own mess. But his juvenile partisan games has been reveled, and shows to all how untrustworthy now he still realy is, not any kind of competent, mature, or serious politician too. He also now should shift his focus to a serious plan to stimulate the Canadian economy if he hopes to wishfully survive even when he in arrogance  had a choice between responsible governance and partisan warfare, he chose the latter. That’s a betrayal of public trust, plain and simple.

 

 

 

The new Conservative party was elected cause they said they were going to be better than the other political parties, more honest, decent, etc, and in this regard they became the biggest liars themselves,  they next became the bullies, thugs, oppressors, promise breakers and much more, showing to us all that they were really wolves in sheep clothing,  their clearly apparent bad acts do  not deny who they really are still too… bad people.
 
No one in his right mind  can ever think, believe thse are the acts of a genuine professing Christian , more likely  acts typical of the Christian Missionary Alliance church, but not those of Jesus Christ. Jesus would have shown consideration for the poor people firstly, humbly too,  now too and not be self centered, boastful, proud like the Conservatives
 
You cannot hide for long what you really are, Stephen Harper and his thugs included..

Merely let is think back to the final days of the election campaign, when Prime Minister Stephen Harper declared that the government had already done what was needed, that Canada was better off than the United States and that deficit financing was out of the question. And after the lection the same government   uses words such as “recession,” and will run a deficit. Mr. Harper even warns about remembering the lessons of the Great Depression. How the  same liar sings a different tune before and after the election, but that has been so common of him. And  much more…

“The PMO issued detailed marching orders to Conservative MPs for a weekend blitz to shift public opinion.

In an e-mail obtained by the Globe and Mail, Guy Giorno, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Chief of Staff, set out a strategy to shift public debate ahead of a potential confidence vote in the House of Commons next week.

On Friday, Stephen Harper articulated the general theme of the e-mail, stating that while the Opposition has the right to bring down the government on matters of confidence, he said they had no right to “take power without an election.”

The memo urges MPs to fan out to their ridings this weekend and sell the government’s message through forums such as talk radio. Mr. Giorno’s e-mail stated that MPs must show that the current dispute with opposition parties is merely about the Liberals, NDP and Bloc trying to protect their share of the $27-million in public subsidies and steal power that they failed to win legitimately in the last federal election.

Mr. Giorno’s message also includes very detailed scripts MPS are expected to follow while delivering radio interviews that include the following lines:

  • We’re not even two months removed from the last election, and a group of backroom politicians are going to pick who the Prime Minister is. Canadians didn’t vote for this person. We don’t even know who this person will be.
  • Not a single voter voted for a Liberal-NDP coalition. Certainly not a single voter voted for the Liberals to form a coalition with the separatists in the Bloc.
  • This is what bothers me the most. The Conservatives won the election. The Opposition keeps saying that the Conservatives have to respect the will of the voters that this is a minority and so on.
  • …how about Liberals, NDP and Bloc respecting the will of the voters when they said “YOU LOSE”.
  • And what’s this going to do to the economy. I’m sorry, I don’t care how desperate the Liberals are — giving socialists (Jack Layton) and separatists (Gilles Duceppe) a veto over every decision in government — that is a recipe for total economic disaster.
  • But how more phony could these guys be?
  • I mean, I follow the news, virtually every single day you have Harper or Flaherty out there telegraphing exactly what they plan to do with the economy. And not once did you hear the Liberals, NDP or separatists talking about toppling the government in response.
  • No — do you know what set this off. When Flaherty said he was going to take taxpayer-funded subsidies away from the opposition. Now there is a reason to try and overturn an election— because the Conservatives the audacity to say “Hey, it’s a recession, maybe you should take your nose out of the trough.”
  • And I wish the media would be more clear on this point — the opposition aren’t being singled out by this fact the Conservatives stand to lose the most money of all. The only difference is that Canadians are voluntarily giving money the Conservatives, so they don’t need taxpayer handouts. The only reason the opposition would be hurt more is because nobody wants to donate to them. They should be putting their efforts towards fixing that problem.
  • I don’t want another election. But what I want even less is a surprise backroom Prime Minister whom I never even had the opportunity to vote for or against. What an insult to democracy.
 
The decision to attempt to strangle the three opposition parties by removing public financing of parties has obviously backfired. The government is now withdrawing the idea. 

But is it now too late to stop the consequences?

It was and is the Prime Minister Harper himself who is the main insult to democracy. And who can believe a too often lying, manipualtive, deceptive Conservative anymore anway? Kick him still rightfully out of office.
 
Government reverses itself on political funding decision The Canadian Press, OTTAWA –  OTTAWA — After 24 hours of peering into a yawning political abyss, the Harper government stepped back from the brink Saturday, dropping a plan to kill public subsidies for political parties.” When it comes to the funding and subsidies that political parties get, we just don’t think it’s worth getting into an election on that issue,” Transport Minister John Baird said in an interview
 
The bad Conservatives still do think they can buy an election with Money now do not seem to be able to reach the poor people or to get their support of Canada still, which seem to be a majority of people of Canada, those who rightfully despise the money hungry Conservatives.

Supposedly astute Conservative Stephen Harper Harper was a fool not to realize, see this already too. No wonder he got a big shock, shot this weekend..  His False Pride comes before the big fall. History lessons repeat themselves too.

Now as to the unprecedented take back, repossession by the east, by the Liberals, NDP and the Bloc supported by the majority of easterners now too this is something the west has also already experienced even when the oil and gas industry was nationalized by liberal Pierre Trudeau and was why he was and remains so popular in the east.

Wake up Conservatives the reality is you behave badly the east does not mind sending the police to your home to arrest you… Mr. Harper and Joe Clark included… the law, justice now works both ways.. in the east as well as in the west

and how long will your so called oil wealth even help you now that the oil prices have drastically dropped again too.. you may need a bailout from the east again Alberta too?

The often Lying Conservatives, and their manipulators, spin doctors  can spin, distort the truth all they want, but they will not get the majority support, for they were really stupid to firstly see that no one would support cutting anyone’s salary to start of with.. otherwise they never have even suggested that dumb idea in the first place  and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but it is too late to even take it all back now as well ,Conservatives they did their own permanent damage, foolishly hurt themselves, and who thinks Harper now was, is so smart of a person? Not many!

Conservatives use talk of coalition to appeal for ‘emergency’ donations OTTAWA – The cash-flush Conservative party is using opposition threats of taking over government to issue an emergency plea for political donations.
 
Imagine that unrepentant Harper still believes that acquiring more money can, will buy him back a government.. Stephen Harper sadly still fails to see that more money will not deny, cover up his own immoral acts of hijacking the federal government to suit his  own personal  agendas, ambitions and still still fails to see what a bad creep he really looks like rightfully now in the eyes of many Canadians.  

 

 

So Stephen Harper and his bad CON party are asking for more donations to overcome all the bad publicity they are getting mostly Perhaps if he was  a real  good leader they wouldn’t have to worry about Him always  stepping on mines. More money to undo the vast mount of damage already done will not help.. what Harper did not learn that from his last 2 attempts in forming a majority government too? He really is an bad leader and a bad learner
   
How ironic that the person  the PM Stephen Harper named as incompetent was chosen now to replace him. Harper’s fall from grace came with startling speed. Canadian PM Damaged Badly By Crisis He Provoked The crisis also shows Harper had a very poor reading of the mood inside Parliament, in particular among the opposition parties he had so often pushed into a corner..  A botched attempt by Canadian Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper to cripple opposition parties has backfired so badly that even if he survives what is now the worst crisis of his career, he has been wounded badly.” For the Liberals, the threat of the financing clause meant the Conservatives wanted total annihilation. It was for me a flight or fight instinct and it’s a prime motivator behind dumping them,”   Now the opposition parties — who control a majority of seats in Parliament and whose support he needs to govern — say they want to have nothing to do with Harper.  “For the Liberals, the threat of the financing clause meant the Conservatives wanted total annihilation. It was for me a flight or fight instinct and it’s a prime motivator behind dumping them,”  “Right now, we do not believe him, and I think he has earned the right for us not to believe him,” said senior Liberal legislator John McCallum. Liberal Leader Stephane Dion would be prime minister in a coalition government with the NDP, his caucus decided Monday afternoon.  Meanwhile, Conservatives were fighting a desperate public relations war trying to convince Canadians that a government with Stephane Dion as prime minister would have little legitimacy. Conservative sympathizers were organizing cross-country, anti-coalition protests. Liberals and NDP have agreed to govern together for 30 months and will soon send a letter to the Governor General saying there is a “government-in-waiting.” Potential candidates to take over from Harper include well-respected Environment Minister Jim Prentice. A new website, supposedly set up by Prentice supporters, appeared over the weekend and called on party members to back him. Prentice denies any association with the site. NDP elder statesman Ed Broadbent says the plan – supported by the Bloc Quebecois – would be directed at the beleaguered auto and forestry sectors and at an infrastructure rebuilding program.
  
Quebeckers support a coalition with Bloc ministers  Globe and Mail, Canada -   76 per cent of Quebeckers support a coalition if the Conservatives are defeated, while only 9 per cent want another election. 

As to what some of the others have said about Harper recently too.. bad publicity like this freely available for all to read too.

“A FRATEHAULER from Canada writes: It is so obvious that the Conservatives are the most hypcritcial and fear mongering party in Canada to day. They keep saying that the Opposition’s possible Coalition is undemocratic. Well that’s Hogwash and they know it … The Opposition can defeat the sitting minority ( the Stephen Harper Conservatives) if they pass a non confidence resolution. The way the Conservatives have been acting lately they deserve to be defeated and the Coalition should run the Country during this dire economic time… Harper has no long term vision of the Country with the exception of his misguided ideological extreme right wing tactics. … Harper is a very secretive Prime Minister and is not to be trusted… his main and only aim is to bankrupt the entire opposition and become more of a Dictator than he is now.

The Conservative government is clearly attempting to abuse its privileged position of power…

Harper could have done that, but thus far he has shown his inability to truly lead. Time for him to get out of the way then…
 
After preaching about the need for minority governments to work with the other parties when he sat in the Opposition benches, Harper has completely failed as a leader of one himself…

You need to educate yourself on how Parliament works. The first obligation of any government is to earn and maintain the confidence of the House. In the absence of that confidence, it has no legal right to govern. Should an Opposition party or group of parties gain the confidence of the House, it then DOES have the right to govern. In a minority situation, it is incumbent upon the government to take into consideration the wishes of the Opposition. Failure to do so invites a loss of confidence. The minority is precisely what Canadians elected. Had we wanted a majority Reform government, we would have elected one. We did not. Seems to me that Mr. Harper is once again showing his ignorance of the Canadian Constitution, and for that matter, practical politics. ..

In 2004 when Paul Martin was the Prime Minister stephen harper conspired with the NDP and the Bloc to defeat the government in Parliament and to form a coalition to take over the government with harper at the helm. Here is a portion of the letter he sent ot the Governor General on Sept 9, 2004.
“As leaders of the opposition parties, we are well aware that, given the Liberal minority government, you could be asked by the Prime Minister to dissolve the 38th Parliament at any time should the House of Commons fail to support some part of the government’s program. We respectfully point out that the opposition parties, who together constitute a majority in the House, have been in close consultation. We believe that, should a request for dissolution arise this should give you cause, as constitutional practice has determined, to consult the opposition leaders and consider all of your options before exercising your constitutional authority. Your attention to this matter is appreciated.”
-From a letter to then-Governor General Adrienne Clarkson signed by all three opposition leaders: Gilles Duceppe, Jack Layton and Stephen Harper
(September 9, 2004)
Seems strange eh now the COns think a coalition isn’t such a good idea !!! ..
 
 It’s too bad Harper is not a good leader. He has brought all this on himself and can blame nobody but himself for the outcome. Any of you die hard Cons who refuse to see logic are just who you are .. be at peace with yourselves.

Harper wrote a letter to the Govenor General when Martins government was failing informing that he was ready to form and lead a coalition government … funny thing isn’t it.

To make matters worse STEPHEN NIXON has been caught recording an NDP strategy meeting …. yes maybe it was by accident they stumbled on it … but to record it and use it are tantamount to treason. 

Which is exactly why we need to get rid of Harper and Flaherty. who have been mismanaging our economy for several years now. They are clearly poor judges of winners and losers and have distributed tax monies inef

India’s Singh Seeks Tougher Terrorism Law After Mumbai Attacks  Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) — Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is seeking support for a crime-fighting agency modeled on the FBI and tougher laws against terrorism after the deadliest attacks in 15 years killed at least 195 in Mumbai, the financial capital.  Singh called a meeting for today in New Delhi with all the political parties in Parliament to discuss the measures. In Washington yesterday, President George W. Bush pledged U.S. help to investigate the assault by 10 gunmen on the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower and Oberoi-Trident hotels, a Jewish center and restaurant.   The 60-hour siege puts a spotlight on security in the Hindu-dominated nation, where about 300 people died this year in attacks on markets, mosques and theaters before the attacks in Mumbai that ended early yesterday. P.R.S. Oberoi, chairman of the Oberoi Group that owns one of the hotels, urged the government to let businesses defend themselves.  “Their intention was to kill as many people as possible and do as much damage as possible,” Oberoi said of the terrorists. “It takes a long, long time for even one person to be armed. I wanted a security person for me, and it took nearly a year.”  http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/newspid=20601087&sid=a3qjRfGh67VM&refer=home
 
KFAR CHABAD, Israel: Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah had no fear when they embarked on their mission to open a Jewish center in the Indian city of Mumbai, her brother said Saturday night as relatives in Israel prepared to bury the couple slain in a three-day terror spree. The 29-year-old rabbi, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, and his 28-year-old Israeli wife were among nine killed in the center run by the ultra-orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch sect and nearly 200 dead in the 60-hour rampage by suspected Muslim militants. The carnage ended earlier Saturday. “She went with courage to this mission in India,” Rivkah’s brother Shmuel Rosenberg told The Associated Press after the end of the Jewish Sabbath. He described her as a strong, industrious and intelligent woman with a nuanced mind. “She had no fear,” and neither did her husband, he said. On the streets of Jerusalem, residents were aghast at the crime but all too accustomed to the pattern. “It was a horrendous and horrible perpetration of malice and barbarism,” said Michael Bregman, 42, of Jerusalem. But “it comes as no surprise” because militant groups have announced they are “going to target Jews wherever they are,” he added. http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/11/29/news/ML-Israel-India.php

The Canadian new Conservative party -wolves in sheep clothing

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  
 
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year
 
The new Conservative party was elected cause they said they were going to be better than the other political parties, more honest, decent, etc, and in this regard they became the biggest liars themselves,  they next became the bullies, thugs, oppressors, promise breakers and much more, showing to us all that they were really wolves in sheep clothing,  their clearly apparent bad acts do  not deny who they really are still too… bad people.

You cannot hide for long what you really are, Stephen Harper and his thugs included..

Merely let is think back to the final days of the election campaign, when Prime Minister Stephen Harper declared that the government had already done what was needed, that Canada was better off than the United States and that deficit financing was out of the question. And after the election the same government   uses words such as “recession,” and will run a deficit. Mr. Harper even warns about remembering the lessons of the Great Depression. How the  same liar sings a different tune before and after the election, but that has been so common of him.

Liberal Iggy had nothing to do with this as well. Stephen Harper once said he had no plans to stack the Senate with unelected representatives, suggesting it was “a dumping ground for the favoured cronies of the prime minister.” Next when he’s actually a prime minister, he’s done exactly what he said he wouldn’t do. And falsely Harper still blames the Liberals for his lies, poor acts, or whatever but clearly he Harper lacks integrity too and thus patronage and croneyism continues to rule the day in Canadian politics and taxpayers are still the big losers. Conservative supporters  go along with Harper’s lies again too.

The Federal Trade Commission says AT&T’s practice of slowing down the connection speeds of unlimited-data customers who tap excessive amounts of data is a failure to deliver on the promise of “unlimited.” As a result, the FTC on Tuesday filed a federal court complaint against AT&T, charging the wireless provider with misleading customers who signed up for an unlimited-data plan only to see their connection slowed in an industry process called “throttling. “AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances, it has failed to deliver on that promise,” . “The issue here is simple: ‘unlimited’ means unlimited.”  http://www.cnet.com/news/ftc-sues-at-t-for-limiting-speeds-on-unlimited-data-customers/

More bad news for BCE.. The past False, misleading advertisements, bad management, Download cappings, have all lead to this. Shares of BCE tumbled $13.10, or 34 per cent, to $25.25, trimming 102 points from the S&P/TSX composite index, after accounting firm KPMG said it couldn’t certify the solvency of the company before the Dec. 11 deadline for the deal to close. A group of private equity investors led by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan agreed to pay $42.50 a share for BCE in the biggest leveraged buyout of all time. But the subsequent stock market crash, four quarters of declining profits, and a ballooning pension fund deficit have pushed the value of the company so low, it might not be able to service the mountain of debt that would replace shareholder equity after the buyout.

BCE says Teachers’ buyout ‘unlikely to proceed’ if solvency opinion not improved Wed Nov 26, 5:48 PM MONTREAL – Bell Canada’s roller coaster ride to privatization may finally crash under the weight of its prospective massive debt after an accounting firm raised serious doubt that the world’s largest leveraged corporate buyout could succeed. I am always amazed how they had wrongfully thought they could continue to abuse their own customers and next get away with it still too.. they had wrongfully failed to use profits to upgrade their old, obsolete phone lines, equipment too.. as a result lost many customers to the cable ISP too. They now really do not deserve any Business bail out by the taxpayers or the government.
.
A recent report by KPMG, acting as valuation firm, found that the amount of debt involved in the privatization of BCE (BCE), the parent of Bell Canada, would essentially render the company insolvent. As a result, the parties have called off the deal.
.   

Dec 11, 2008 BCE’s shares have fallen by almost half since Teachers’ made its C$42.75-a-share bid. BCE dropped 59 cents, or 2.6 percent, to C$22.43 at 12:50 p.m. in Toronto.The stock fell 34 percent on Nov. 26 on concern that KPMG was unlikely to bless the deal because of the C$34 billion in bonds and loans needed to finance the purchase. The company hired PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in an unsuccessful effort to persuade KPMG to change its opinion.  .  BCE lost 72,000 home-phone lines last quarter as customers switched to wireless lines or to cable companies such as Rogers. BCE’s wireless unit, which makes up a quarter of sales, grew at less than half the rate of Rogers’s mobile unit. BCE must also realistically decide whether to invest in the much need fiber-optic lines for its home customers and whether it should provide Internet- based TV service to compete with the cable firms too http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601082&sid=ayi6TCn22gaQ&refer=canada

.

BCE takes low road as deal fails For all BCE’s protests, the world’s largest leverage buyout just failed because lawyers for the telecom company inserted a requirement in the deal that stated BCE needed to get a favourable solvency opinion. When KPMG, a reputable accounting firm, weighed in with a final opinion that BCE didn’t meet solvency standards, the deal died. OnceBCE agreed to a buyout, they muffed the job of closing the deal.

“A lawsuit filed against Apple and AT&T on November 4, 2008 charging misrepresentation of the 3G speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s network, has also been amended with an additional charge. The new charge claims the iPhone develops hairline cracks in the housing. Filed in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, Avi Koschitzki claims in the amended charge that hairline cracks in the casing of the iPhone constitute unfair practices under the New York Deceptive Practices Act. Koschitzki said the cracks appear around the camera and near the volume button on the side of the iPhone.

.
Now we all can know that driving a sports car on an empty road produces a different speed from that when driving on the same road during peak traffic hours.
.
Now this Mis-advertisement of the actual speeds attained  also reflects the common  problem we tend to  have also in Canada with the false, misleading advertising, trade practices by Bell, Rogers, Videotron in regard to the speeds of their iphone and DSL, ADSL, cable internet services. These Communication, ISP firms amongst others are known to inflate, advertise substantially higher speeds than the consumer will actual get next get on the average, and the  next related internet congestion cause web connectivity problems, and also reductions of the downloads speeds too..
 .
Now what about having now the much need real consumer protections for the citizens of Canada here as well from the greedy, lying, no good corporations?
.

“The initial lawsuit claims that Apple and AT&T misrepresented the speed of the iPhone on AT&T’s 3G network. The suit claims insufficient infrastructure of the network and the fact that so many phones have been sold that it can’t handle the volume of phones trying to use it. “Due to the overloaded 3G network, it is quite common for iPhone users to only be on the 3G network for a few minutes before being bumped to the slower EDGE network despite being in geographical areas allegedly rich with 3G network coverage,” reads the lawsuit.

.

The lawsuit is seeking a jury trial where they are asking for statutory, compensatory and punitive damages.”

.

72 percent of businesses say they would change ISP if their Internet connection became unreliable. The independent research carried out by Shape the Future Limited on behalf of Zen Internet, the award winning ISP, surveyed over a 1,000 Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) between September and October.
.

An important decisive factor for SMEs is the level of support provided by ISPs: 85 percent stated that the level of support was the most important criteria when choosing an ISP while the highest number of respondents, 80 per cent, considers UK based support to be very important. Some ISP providers have been criticised for taking telephone support overseas and cutting staffing costs.

.

Just over half of those asked, 55 per cent were happy with their current supplier and were unlikely to change, 45 percent are unhappy. and 68 per cent had not changed ISP in the last year but   13 per cent are considering changing ISP at present.

.

When they do, it’s mainly when there are issues with reliability, quality of service, cost or for higher speeds. It was found that 72 per cent of SMEs said they would change provider because of unreliable connection, but note only 40 per cent would change to save money.

.

98 per cent of SMEs consider reliable Internet access to be critical to the needs of their business. 71 per cent of SMEs thought it was important that their ISP was business orientated, as 80 per cent use the Web to locate suppliers and 76 per cent use it for purchasing activities.

Read my many other posts about Bell here now too..
 .

The federal, provincial governments, the CRTC, Conservatives, Liberals  unfairly maintaining  archaic, monopolistic telecommunication firms, that are often   bloated, cost ineffective, incompetent, over staffed, un-competitively managed as well is the main reasons consumer costs falsely keep on going up now.Bell has always had it’s spin doctors spin, lying..

.

“But still “It’s getting hard to figure out the upside on the BCE  story   It’s very difficult to say what’s priced into the stock, but make sure you know the risks before you pile into BCE. There may be some hidden ones. And there might be some positive surprises too.  Before the announcement of this deal, the shares traded between $26 and $28. The stock is trading at about $25 now.  The cable companies are doing better…  Then there’s the competitive landscape. It’s ferocious out there, with well-funded cable, VoIP and new wireless entrants moving in with their elbows high.  There are three sources of potentially good news. The first is that BCE upgrades its land line network and makes inroads into television. That’s hard to bank on and, even if you do, it’s tough to figure out the upside. The second is the network-sharing agreement with Telus, which should yield strong returns. And finally, there’s “Belus.” Most of us find it hard to believe that the Competition Bureau would let a merger with Telus happen, or that it would let the merged entity cherry pick its divestitures…   If none of these scenarios moves you, though, you’re probably better investing in the cable companies. As illustrated in this space not long ago, they are walloping the telcos because they generally have better technology. Where broadband goes, in the words of research firm Sandford Bernstein, so voice and video follow. In Canada, Rogers has mobile and Shaw is poised to move in. They’re more expensive, true, but in the long term, they seem to have more promise.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20081128.RVOX28/TPStory/Business

.

Vigilance, continual Vigilance is need in all areas of life it seems cause otherwise our rights are abused, overlooked, falsely censored even. Such as the ISP, Internet service providers  obligations to their customers, contractual agreements, On top of that there is no question that many major Internet corporations profit have also  been built on the back of free labor, the free contributors. Which they tend to no longer appreciated and restrict falsely access to many of these sites now instead. Ever discover that while the main search engines will readily give you a list of sites, that you may next have difficulties accessing many of these sites next ands why is that? The access and the speed aren’t too bad but still only during  certain, limited  portions of day  or night.  Such internet  traffic management is really really unacceptable.
.
 For if they were to invest in newer, better infrastructure to raise capacity, they would even get more customers. It’s much, much cheaper to throttle torrent traffic or do nothing than it is to expand the overused, obsolete infrastructure.  If even Microsoft, corporations, companies & governments are distributing more and more  content through the internet then all of the ISPs have to keep up to date and increase their capacity in response. Other countries are embracing this, and have brighter economic futures & control, profitability, consumer satisfactions  as well.
.
Time for just more of our complaining, talking  over and over again is done, rather real actions is required now even by the governments to protect the consumers.
.

I too have discovered often that while I personally do also have many blogs, internet sites, next my own accessibility to these sites is it seems unnecessary  restricted, difficult, and one of the main valid explanations as many of us already do know is the false periodic unacceptable capping, throttling, access restrictions,   by the ISP, internet Service Suppliers themselves. I too now do  have no sympathy for almost any of  ISPs. They firstly do still to often lie lie to get customers and next when they get them they cannot honor, keep their original promises, promised speeds and capacities  It’s one thing to gouge us all with continual increase rates but not to keep also same promised original service. No, no, no. ISPs are not only raising their rates but still also decreasing their services and the quality of it as well..

ONE THING YOU CAN COUNT ON IN DEALING WITH BELL IS HOW THEY WILL DIVERT, MISLEAD THE TRUTH, AS TO WHAT THEY DO, WHO THEY ARE, HOW CAPABLE THEY ARE NOW TO SUPPLY YOUR SERVICES. I KNOW I HAVE DEALT WITH THEM FOR YEARS AND POSTED HUNDREDS OF EMAIL COMPLAINTS TO THEM, ON THE NET NOW TOO. BECAUSE BELL HAD THEY STATED THAT THEY ARE THE LARGEST, BIGGEST IN CANADA DOES NOT MEAN AT ALL THAT THEY ARE THE BEST, OR ADEQUATE EVEN. BELL AND IT’S EMPLOYEES, RESOURCES FOR CERTAINTY HAVE NOT BEEN PROPERLY MANAGED, BELL HAS NOT   SPENT THE MUCH NEED CAPITAL ON UPGRADES TO STAY COMPETITIVE IN THE COMPUTER WORLD TOO.  SO CLEARLY  THEY ARE ALWAYS SEEM TO BE LOOKING AT SCHEMES, ALTERNATIVES TO IMPROVE THEIR PROFITABILITY, AND THEY DO NOT ALWAYS WORK BEST FOR THEM TOO. I WOULD FIRST LOOK AT ALTERNATIVES BEFORE I WOULD LOOK TO DEALING WITH BELL.

Pretentious Ministers, Health Ministers, medical heart tests too

 
 
Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious Ministers, Health Ministers included who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive  it seems still too. I could not help but notice and read the great newspaper articles about heart care tips.. but what about all of those people where these tips are too late and the mostly pretentious health care is not there for them.. face it to get get real health care you have to get the attention of the emergency department, triage  care givers, that is if you can get past those preeminent security guards there, too often pretentious triage nurses, who screen all the patients firstly. and if you still are not dumb to recognize that now hiring 12 nurses who get the same pay as one doctor cannot, do not make up, compose one qualified medical doctor firstly as well. Nurses have 2 years of training while doctors have at least a decade, so they the real doctors do have both a deeper and wider applicable   knowledge base too.
   
Congestive heart failure, Coronary artery disease, Hypertension ,Mitral valve collapse, Arrhythmias, Atrial fibrillation , Angina,  Cardiomyopathy, Heart attacks, Strokes, High cholesterol all likely can be effectively treated if we had a more competent, compassionated medical care system firstly..
 
Secondly most of the initial doctor  prescribed medical test for potentially serious  heart problems are really pretentious, cheap, ineffective, basically  all useless, and are mostly now used because the real valid medical tests such as the Echocardiogram   are mostly unavailable and too costly to be used immediatley too, for most people who reallly do need them.  see http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/why-heart-attacks-often-kill-still/
 
 
“Some noninvasive Heart tests, and not all of them are fully effective even.. most tests still do require professional diagnostic experiences solely by quailfied cardiologists.
  • Resting electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Signal-averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG)
  • Chest X-ray
  • Holter monitor (ambulatory electrocardiogram)

 

  • Echocardiogram
  • Exercise stress test
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA
 The  echocardiogram is a test in which ultrasound is used to examine the heart. The equipment is far superior to that used by fishermen. In addition to providing single-dimension images, known as M-mode echo that allows accurate measurement of the heart chambers, the echocardiogram also offers far more sophisticated and advanced imaging. The first test that should be done for most people with potential heart problems often seems rather firstly reserved for the pregnant mothers rather still too.” http://www.heartsite.com/html/echocardiogram.html
 
Based on that above  facts alone a triage Medical  doctor said today to me that he would love to hire me to help out in his emergency clinic, since few people do now even have that essential medical heart problem grasp, and what about you?  http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com
 
 
Or are you another one of those people who will let most of the really sick and needy  heart patients die next needlessly too by doing nothing good about it too?
 
  
 
Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates  The Canadian Press -  TORONTO – Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections.
Canada’s hospitals not doing enough to fight infections: Report Calgary Herald
Report: Hospital infections on the rise Globe and Mail
Science Daily (press release)
all 25 news articles »  Langue : Français »
 
 
“CP Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates continued to rise   TORONTO — Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections. But despite that, rates of these infections continued to rise in the years immediately following the outbreaks, a new study reveals. Rates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – more than doubled in the period from 1999 to 2005, said the study, which was based on a survey of Canadian hospitals with more 80 or more patient beds.  Clostridium difficile infections ( shit  disease ) also rose over that period and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus climbed 77 per cent over the period. “Despite the two major communicable diseases – SARS and C. difficile – despite the emphasis by the Canadian Public Safety Institute on safer health care, despite all those things, our institutional approaches to infection control have changed remarkably little,” said Dr. Andrew Simor, head of microbiology at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Simor was not involved in the study. “And the outcomes, as a result, have gone in the wrong direction.” The survey was conducted in 2006 by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., and was a follow-up to an earlier survey conducted in 1999. Both were funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The results, which will be published in the December issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that while hospitals reported an increase in staff devoted to infection control, increasing numbers of patients fell prey to hospital-acquired infections. There were 5.2 cases of MRSA per 1,000 hospital admissions in 2005, up from two per 1,000 in 1999. There was also an upward trend in C. difficile infections, and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with VRE soared. “We have to roll up our sleeves,” said lead author Dr. Dick Zoutman, head of infection control at Kingston General Hospital. But while the numbers don’t look good, the director of infectious disease prevention and control with Ontario’s public health agency raised a couple of important caveats. Dr. Michael Gardam suggested hiring new infection control staff is only one step in improving a hospital’s infection control performance. Real improvement requires a commitment and effort from all those involved in patient care in an institution, he said – and that takes time. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Gardam said. “You need to have more infection control practitioners. And you need to bring about culture change. And just doing the resources side of things I don’t believe will actually get you there.” Gardam also suggested the numbers might have been worse but for the injection of resources that followed the 2003 SARS outbreak and the C. difficile crisis, which first came to light in 2004. “Probably we are having an impact, we are slowing the increase,” said Gardam, who was not involved in the study. “But we’re not actually achieving a real steady state and we’re not actually seeing a decrease.” That’s especially worrying given the current state of the economy, said both Zoutman and Simor, who noted that infection control efforts are an easy target when hospitals are trying to cut costs. “I’m concerned now that it’s more challenging economic times … that we don’t lose (sight of) this,” said Zoutman. “Because it’s a false economy. It’s penny wise, pound foolish.” “
 
And Melamine is sometimes illegally added to food products in order to increase the apparent protein content. Manufacturers knowingly and intentionally mix Melamine, which has some rather nasty ingredients, in our milk. To mix this product, they needed the use of formaldehyde, which is a very toxic and nasty ingredient in itself. Where has the integrity of our products gone? It seems like in the venture of profit many companies will trick and deceive customers into believing whatever they are ingesting is good for them. One important matter though is that, it is not only China who is doing such acts. Many companies everywhere are also putting toxic ingredients in our food and beverages without exactly telling us about it. http://augustafreepress.com/2008/10/13/haresh-daswani-watching-what-you-eat/

No RCMP ALCOHOLICS IT SEEMS

 
 
Drunk with Alcohol, abusing others and the law,  stealing  to have more booze or drugs, are part of the major white collared crimes in Canada even these days.. too often now written about or dealt with and why is that? Alcohol is too readily available even in governmental functions. Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and half of the cops do like to booze..
.
Drug or alcohol impaired vehicular driving by men and women and not the actual driving speed are still the key factor in the majority of the traffic accidents … http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2007/10/policing-facts-related-to-vehicular.html
.
 
Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study.Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.    “What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”     http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol
 
.
 
The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and  reasoning ability now as well..  We all also tend to know how many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life.
AND NOTE THIS THE  REAL TRAFFIC STATISTICS WILL SHOW THAT DRUNK, IMPAIRED  DRIVERS CAUSE OVER 2/3 OF THE CAR ACCIDENTS, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE DISTRACTED BY A PHONE ARE LIKLEY TO HAVE 300 PERCENT MORE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS AS WELL,  AND THE  POLICE SPEND MOST OF THEIR TIME IN TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT, IN MONEY GENERATING SPEEDING TICKETS AND WHY WAS THAT STILL? COPS THEMSELVES  DRIVE HOME DRUNK FROM THE BARS STILL TOO OFTEN.. NOW  THE POLICE IN CANADA GENERALLY STILL DO NOT GO AFTER DRUNK DRIVERS ALL YEAR BUT MAINLY ONLY 2 MONTHS, DURING CHRISTMAS  AND NEW YEAR  HOLIDAYS AND WHY WAS THAT?
.
No RCMP ALCOHOLICS clearly is a lie, likley most of the RCMP managers are definite alcoholics and it explains what they are too often incompetent to do their job properly, and likley many of the people they have hired now too, RCMP officiers too as we often read in Canada’s news.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/18/about-time-the-rcmp-reaps-what-is-sowed/
.
AT LEAST 50 % OF CANADA’S POLICE OFFICERS TOO OFTEN ARE DRUNK.. RCMP INCLUDED.. THEIR EXCUSE IS THEY DRINK ALCOHOL DUE TO THE JOB PRESSURES.. WELL I DO NOT USE THAT FALSE EXCUSE. WE CAN READILY KNOW THE VICES THAT OFTEN FOLLOW DRINKING ALCOHOL http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/
.
You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocrtical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/liars-mounties-misleading-everyone/

Suspended BC RCMP officers being paid up to $1.3 million a year The Province – There are now 16 BC RCMP members on paid suspension for alleged misconduct. Officers can remain suspended with pay for years – even receiving annual raises …  “It’s a reward for engaging in inappropriate conduct,” said Simon Fraser University criminologist Robert Gordon. “This just shows a fundamental lack of accountability to taxpayers,” said Maureen Bader, spokeswoman for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.  Across Canada, 47 Mounties were on paid suspension as of March 31, the Ottawa Citizen’s Chris Cobb reports.
.
BY THE WAY THE ONLY TIME I TEND TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY INTERNET OFTEN SEEMS TO BE WHEN I WRITE ABOUT THE BAD RCMP, WHAT THE RCMP MONITOR MY POSTS AND TRY TO HINDER THEM STILL?
.
 AND SECONDLY WHEN YOU QUOTE ACCIDENT TRAFFIC STATISTICS, THE POLICE OFFICERS IN CANADA  HAVE NOT DONE A GOOD JOB IN COLLECTING ACCURATE ACCIDENT STATISTICS THE LAST DECADES , EVEN THE PAST CHIEF OF THE OPP HERE LIED ABOUT THE CAUSE OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS..
.
 REAL FACTS AND STATISTICS ABOUT DRUNKS.. 
 .
“Of the 645 sexual assaults that were reported to our service in 2009, more than 40 per cent were alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults,” A sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. She said no means no the first time, and another drink can’t change that.“ We need people to understand that consent cannot be given if the person is impaired by alcohol: If they’re passed out, if they’re unconscious, if they’re sleeping,”  Supt. Danielle Campbell,   head of the Edmonton Police Criminal Investigations Division. It seems most alcohol-facilitated sexual assault doesn’t seem to be about miscommunication, or misconceptions of consent.  Rather, it is about men who use alcohol to incapacitate women for the purpose of raping them, and who do it over and over again like they know what they ‘re doing and are doing it on purpose. Police use this approach as well?
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.
.
It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seens you are basically honest or merely another crook… http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/04/rcmp-officer-threatened-critic/
.
Another good example as to why there is no admitted RCMP alcoholics.. REGINA – Questions are being raised about why an RCMP sergeant in Saskatchewan who rolled his vehicle after having at least five alcoholic drinks was not charged with impaired driving. Sgt. Warren Gherasim was commander of the detachment in Cut Knife, about 170 kilometres west of Saskatoon, when, on May 15, 2006, he conducted himself “in a disgraceful manner that brings discredit on the force” by drinking and driving, says a decision by an RCMP adjudication board. “Sergeant Gherasim’s admission, the (indications) of impairment and the evidence of the odour of alcohol tip the balance in favour of finding that some level of alcohol impairment existed sufficient to contribute to the accident,” the board said in its ruling dated March 20, 2008. “Six different members attended the accident scene or Sgt. Gherasim’s residence, all but one subordinate to him in rank and four serving under him at Cut Knife. Several of these noted the odour of alcohol. “For a detachment commander, one of whose roles is to set an example, to drink enough and drive so that alcohol played a role in a subsequent accident, regardless of the fact that the circumstances were such that no breath demand was made, is disgraceful, and brings discredit on the force.” The adjudication report noted that Gherasim worked his scheduled shift on the day in question and drank two beers with a colleague while golfing. The pair stopped later at the colleague’s house and Gherasim had another beer. After watching a baseball game together, he had a “couple of drinks.” Gherasim has since apologized for his behaviour and been transferred to a different detachment, where he is handling administrative duties. He was given a reprimand, docked eight days’ pay and taken out of the Officer Candidate program. He was also stripped of the Order of Merit of Police Forces he received in 2006 from the Governor General for his work in community-based policing in the Northwest Territories and for fugitive investigations across the country.  Bill Pitt, an Edmonton-based criminologist, law enforcement instructor and former Mountie, called the incident “another nail in the coffin” for the RCMP. “This is not a standard of policing that Canadians should have. Does it occur? Yeah, you bet it does.” Pitt said charges weren’t laid because “people were looking for their careers, and properly so because they wouldn’t have had one had they brought a sergeant up on impaired driving charges.”http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100727/national/cop_loses_award

 Now again for the liars who tell me there are few RCMP alcoholics..  CALGARY (CBC) – Two RCMP officers have been charged after an investigation into a rowdy disturbance at a southern Alberta bar late last year.  RCMP in Brooks were called to the business in the early morning of Nov. 29 after complaints that six off-duty Mounties were having a heated argument that almost turned violent. Const. Brandon Letain, 34, of the Brooks detachment is charged with two counts of causing a disturbance, a summary criminal offence. Const. Cam Hicke, 36, from the Indian Head detachment in Saskatchewan is charged with public intoxication under Alberta’s Gaming and Liquor Act. The investigation was transferred to a senior officer at a detachment outside Brooks who forwarded the results to the Alberta Justice Department for review. The ministry recommended charges be laid against the two RCMP members. Letain has been assigned to administrative duties while Hicke is still on active duty pending the resolution of their cases. An internal disciplinary review is also underway for all six off-duty RCMP officers at the bar, who come from three different detachments. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100526/canada/canada_calgary_alberta_brooks_rcmp_charges_officers_disturbance_bar

Imagine that the paid RCMP openly admits now that for decades too it is pretentious, inadequate, incompetent, insufficient police force , when it comes to dealing with basic white collared crimes such as : Mortgage fraud, or Stock fraud, stealing from seniors. All it  the RCMP is qualified to do it give out speeding, parking tickets and to kill persons with the laser after all . It all is  especially hard for the clearly bad, inexperienced RCMP cause it takes real work. So how are they the bad  RCMP also dealing with computer fraud, money laundering by crooks, terrorists banking now too? they  do not for they expect others to do such as the banks investigators now  again too? Bad  RCMP management cannot hire competent persons for the RCMP cause it uses the RCMP Budget  money to give itself useless bonuses, expense accounts, etc?

EDMONTON (CBC) – Mortgage fraud is one of the toughest to spot and investigate, an RCMP officer with experience in the field says. Sgt. Conal Archer of the RCMP’s commercial crime unit says  “I think they’re very challenging [cases],”  “We have a number of issues. First of all, we have real estate agents to interview, mortgage brokers to interview, bankers to interview. And then we have a mortgage file to review and it’s a huge documentary evidence file that we have to review and it can take years to investigate.”  or to learn how to do it…

Kind of REALLY foolish NOW EVEN encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will as a direct result get richer in the process, the Canadian government will not, even because the assicated costs due to the realted job dismissals and related tax losses, Medicare cost increases, significant car accidents, more policing rquirements, more domestic violence, and all associated with alcoholism is extremely, extremely  costly..

.

No taxpayers money should ever  be used to buy alcoholics at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions. Really!

Crash cop admits loaded firearm accusation By TONY BLAIS, COURT BUREAU The Edmonton Sun  EDMONTON — A former city cop who resigned in disgrace after running a red light and seriously injuring a man in a fiery crash has admitted he unsafely stored his loaded police gun.  (Douglas) Kurtis Brown, 31, yesterday pleaded guilty in provincial court to careless use of a firearm.  Crown prosecutor Kerry Hart said Brown was suspended from active duty after being charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm relating to a May 11, 2008, collision on 75 Street, near the Whitemud Drive exit ramp.  Later that day, following the 2 a.m. crash, officers went to Brown’s Mill Woods home to have him turn over his police-issued handgun, a Glock Model 22 40-calibre pistol.  Brown led the officers to the basement of the home where they found his EPS duty belt draped over a couch in one of the rooms, said Hart. Inside some pouches on the belt, officers located two 15-round magazines loaded with 40-calibre ammunition.  After the belt was turned over, officers were taken to a nearby room where Brown retrieved his Glock from a duffel bag, said Hart.  The pistol was loaded with a magazine containing 14 rounds and had one round already in the firing chamber and court heard the firearm was not secured in any way.  Brown ejected the magazine and the round in the chamber and handed the gun over without incident.  Brown did not appear in court yesterday, but he was ordered to be present for a Sept. 11 sentencing hearing.  On July 3, Brown was fined $18,400 on his earlier convictions for dangerous driving causing bodily harm.  At the time, Judge Michael Allen noted Brown’s “courageous” actions in pulling his trapped victim from his burning pickup truck and said jail was not required.  In April, Allen found Brown guilty of four counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm after ruling Brown went through a red light driving in excess of 70 km/h.  Court heard Brown, a constable for three years who was off-duty at the time of the crash, was returning to his home with his girlfriend and their two other roommates after a birthday party at a downtown nightclub.  The impact forced Robert Wasyliw’s truck to flip — trapping the then 18 year old beneath the burning vehicle.  Brown had also been accused of impaired driving, but Allen earlier dismissed those charges after ruling the two breath samples provided by Brown would be excluded from evidence due to a breach of his charter rights.  http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2009/08/26/10612776-sun.html

Alberta Impaired Driving Statistics:

“Reducing impaired driving on Alberta’s highways will save lives, prevent injuries and lower insurance costs. In a national survey conducted by Transport Canada, it was determined that three per cent of drivers on the road between late night and early morning hours, Thursday through Sunday, were impaired. These offenders account for 33 per cent of traffic fatalities among drivers every year. “There are too many irresponsible drivers who think they can drink alcohol and still drive safely, despite the fact that in 2006, 90 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes,” ”  We will continue to target and arrest those people who put innocent members of the community at risk by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.” Reducing impaired driving on Alberta’s highways will save lives, prevent injuries and lower insurance costs. In a national survey conducted by Transport Canada, it was determined that three per cent of drivers on the road between late night and early morning hours, Thursday through Sunday, were impaired. These offenders account for 33 per cent of traffic fatalities among drivers every year.
In Alberta in 2004, 1,138 of injury collisions involved drivers who had either been drinking or were judged to have been impaired. There were more than four and half times as many male drivers as female drivers who had consumed alcohol and been involved in a casualty collision. The majority of these drivers were males younger than 45 years old.
 

Males between 18 and 21 years of age were most likely to have been drinking before the crash (per 1,000 licensed drivers).
In 2004, at 10.4 per cent of the total, September was the month with the highest number of casualty collisions involving alcohol.


At 14.4 per cent, July had the highest number of alcohol-related fatal collisions. The most fatal and non-fatal injury collisions involving alcohol occurred on Saturdays in 2004. And the most likely time period for these collisions, on any day of the week, was between 11:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

68 per cent of the alcohol-involved collisions are single vehicle with pick-up trucks being the most prevalent.
Eleven alcohol-related collisions occur on undivided roadways for every collision on divided roadways.
There were more than 380 deaths from traffic collisions in the Alberta RCMP jurisdiction for 2005; 26 per cent had alcohol as a contributing factor. “

“Tiny number of police officers part of large drinking and driving problem- Ha Ha Ha  Sun Nov 9, 12:03 PM   VANCOUVER, B.C. – The numbers are staggering.  Mothers Against Drunk Driving says 75,000 people are arrested annually in Canada for drinking and driving. There are an additional 100,000 to 150,000 24-hour suspensions handed out each year by police, said MADD chief executive officer Andy Murie.  Sometimes the people who make those arrests, the front-line police officers who try to get the drunks off the road become – albeit rarely – part of the statistics.  “You might find 10 to 15 incidents a year involving police officers,” said Murie in a recent interview from his Oakville, Ont., office.  “The thing is that with the 10 to 15, because they are police officers and they get charged with a crime, it’s news.”  Often front-page news, most recently in British Columbia.  In recent weeks, the public learned that three B.C. police officers are facing drunk-driving charges – two members of the RCMP and a third from the New Westminster police department.  One of the off-duty RCMP members was arrested for drunk driving after a Jeep collided with a motorcycle, killing a 21-year-old man in Delta, B.C.  Other high-profile cases this year across the country include an Edmonton police officer facing one count of driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit and five counts each of impaired driving causing bodily harm and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.  In Saskatoon, a judge will decide the fate later this month of a senior member of the Saskatoon police service charged with impaired driving.  At his trial, two arresting officers testified that Insp. Al Stickney got behind the wheel after they observed him drunkenly staggering across the street.  “This year there’s been about 10 (arrests),” said Murie. “That’s pretty normal for a year.”  ..  the number of police officers caught drinking and driving is a tiny percentage of the total  ..   Benedikt Fischer, a criminologist at the faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, said police officers are recruited “from the human race and despite the fact we expect so, human behaviour doesn’t stop on-or off-duty.”  Fischer also believes the number of police officers who drive drunk is probably higher than the arrest statistics indicate.
 .
Being a cop is part of a “professional or police culture” dominated by machismo and camaraderie where police officers spend a lot of time socializing with each other, said Fischer, and often it involves alcohol.  “Drinking among police officers is often quite extensive and excessive, probably more so than in other professions,” he said.  When an RCMP member in B.C. is identified as having a drinking problem, he or she gets to know Dr. Ian MacDonald, the regional health services officer for RCMP in B.C.  After an assessment, they might be referred outside the force to an independent addiction specialist.  Whether it’s determined they have a drinking problem or not, all RCMP members arrested for drinking and driving come to MacDonald’s attention and must have an assessment.  MacDonald also thinks that MADD’s numbers are low and that the number of police officers arrested for drunk driving is higher than 10 to 15.  “That strikes me as low. If you look at B.C., we might have two or three charges a year. And if B.C. is 10 per cent of the population, that would be 20 to 30 across Canada.”  Mark Berber, a lecturer in psychiatry at the University of Toronto and an assistant professor at Queen’s University, is also skeptical of the MADD figures.  “It’s surprisingly low considering the stress these guys and gals are under.”  Studies, he said, have suggested that police officers have one of the most stressful jobs and “unfortunately a small number may seek to reduce their anxiety and stress by having a drink.”  He has counselled police officers in his private practice.  “They have spoken about seeking relief from stress and through medication and also drinking,” Berber said.  RCMP members who get caught drinking and driving, in addition to the court process, must endure an internal code of conduct investigation, said RCMP spokeswoman Const. Annie Linteau.  Members appear before an adjudication board and the result could be dismissal, she said. ”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/081109/national/police_drunk_driving
 
“  We only read/see about the few due to the police buddy system which will leave all but the most blatant of the cops drunk (ie involved in an accident) either being escorted home, or not even bothering to perform the breathe analysis. Do you really think the public is so stupid to believe that the police are held accountable to their partners? I have seen this first hand and know it for truth. So MADD get off your horse and see the facts for what they really are, police covering up for police”  “ I get the uncomfortable impression that there is a level of spin coming from MADD over this matter! If anything, I would have expected MADD to have taken a highly reproachful attitude toward anyone in this profession(as they do to anyone in any other profession) who CHOOSE to drink and drive. Yes, it makes the news if it’s a cop and so does any other citizen who kills someone while drunk at the wheel. “” There is absolutely no excuse for anyone driving drunk,be they officers or not.We are all aware of the fact that it is illegal and should all be held to the same standard. As to lighter sentencing,police generally get booted off the force after conviction.  “

All alcoholics should be fired anywhere.. The reality also is  that   a God/faith  based forgiveness, cure approach still works only if one admits that one lies, is an alcoholic. one has to first admit he has sinned  before he or she can receive help, forgiveness for it.. like it or not.
.
The way I see it.. The federal and provincial conservatives are also all still mostly immoral persons, do  see my blog on why Stephen Harper hides his religion.. so also are many of  the Federal, provincial Liberals, and also the cops, RCMP, CRTC, it seems they are all corrupted,   crooked? for they all support mainly the Businessmen, corporations  who they hope can support them with bribes.. and sadly this is an undeniable reality..

Off-duty RCMP officer arrested for River Heights break-in CTV.ca –  An off-duty RCMP officer was arrested for allegedly breaking into a River Heights home while intoxicated on Thursday, said Winnipeg police. An investigation determined that a suspect in an intoxicated state broke in through the front door to a stranger’s residence in River Heights and woke up a person inside, said officers. A neighbour told CTV News the suspect fell asleep on a couch inside the home. The neighbour said the suspect believed he was at a hotel and even left his shoes at the door before falling asleep on the couch. Winnipeg police responded and took the suspect into custody.  The 30-year-old male suspect faces a charge for forcible entry and has been released on a court appearance notice. His name has not been released.

Kamloops Mountie faces impaired charges CBC – Tue Apr 6, 10:27 PM A nine-year veteran RCMP officer faces impaired driving charges after a car flipped over in a crash near Kamloops early Saturday morning. “It appeared, from the preliminary investigation of the incident, that the lone occupant of the vehicle had driven off the road and hit protection poles surrounding a hydro box,” Const. Cheryl Bush said in a release Tuesday. “The vehicle then flipped onto its roof. The driver sustained no injuries as a result of this incident.” Investigators at the scene asked the officer, 29, for a breath sample and later said they would recommend charges to the Crown, police said. The identity of the officer, currently posted in Kamloops, has not been made public. The officer has been reassigned to administrative duties and will make his first court appearance on April 26 in Kamloops, Bush said

“Alcohol Consumption of alcohol in any location at the RCMP Centralized Training Facility (CTF) or D Block is forbidden and considered a breach of conduct. There are two messes on the Depot Grounds that are available for the consumption of alcoholic beverages: General Mess and the Officers’ Mess. Violation of the ban will be reported to Depot Division Security Administration. The Commissionaires at Depot are contractors acting on behalf of the RCMP and have the authority to enforce this policy. Any breach of conduct or willful damage to the premises will be reported to the appropriate authority and financial charges may be applied. If there is a breach of conduct, you may be sent home. In this instances, the full amount of tuition will still be charged to the appropriate Police Service, as well as all accommodation and meal costs incurred. A letter will be forwarded to the appropriate Police Chief /Commanding officer” and that is all? http://www.rcmpgrc.gc.ca/clet/publications/course_candidate_orientation_booklet/i_e.htm

How come as indicated int he news media in Alberta  the Edmonton and Calgary Police alone also  now are supposedly the main, sole  alcoholics, for an RCMP spokesman has said there are no alcoholic RCMP officers. Do you beleive them. I certainly do not.. and why?
.
 
I rightfully also do not believe anything the RCMP lying spin doctors say to me  anymore.. the RCMP are known to be ether liars, alcoholics, incompetents and pretenders.
.
 
And  what according to the bad RCMP spin doctors, there are only 3 alcoholic RCMP officers in all of Canada? for the rest they do not drink alcohol   or beer  but only milk, even when off duty?  Here is something I recently read in the newspapers news that was hilarious, even  on the net, a  RCMP spin doctor, as quoted by  news reporter said  that the RCMP has only 3  court cases this year against alcoholic RCMP officers, and the rest of the RCMP officers are non alcoholic it seems, so they do not get tickets for drunk driving, for the RCMP officers they are  sober all the time too?? That was really funny. In the real world 40 percent of the persons often take drugs and alcohol, but not in the cops world? Ha ha ha.. that is a funny joke. Rightfully unbelievable.  So the spins is that the RCMP themselves now are all angels, tea totters .. dream on..
.
   
And also do consider  the odds of the bad, crooked, drunk cops being exposed or stopped by the other cops so it very obvious to most people that when you do read or hear about it in the news it is   likely also only the tip of the iceberg.. that also includes many other bad civil and public servants, professionals such as doctors, nurses, lawyers..

Stickney was found guilty by a judge last month on a charge of having control of a vehicle while drunk. He was fined over $600 and lost his driver’s license for one year.

VANCOUVER — The RCMP’s top B.C. spokesman blames an “internal communications breakdown” for his unit’s failure to learn until yesterday that yet another officer is facing impaired driving charges, and that he cannot be sure other officers in the province are not in similar legal difficulties. The department had said in recent weeks that three Mounties were facing impaired driving charges. Meanwhile, officers from New Westminster and Vancouver police have also been charged.  But Sergeant Tim Shields, who is in charge of the strategic communications section for E Division, covering British Columbia, said the division’s professional standards branch told him yesterday there was one more case, stemming from an incident in October of 2007. During a press briefing, Sgt. Shields said an “internal communications breakdown” fouled up the Mounties’ commitment to let the public know about officers in serious trouble. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20081210.BCCOP10/TPStory/National

“RCMP reveal year-old impaired driving case against Mountie   Last Updated: Wednesday, December 10, 2008 | 12:17 AM ET  CBC News Cpl. Tim Shields, who speaks for the RCMP in British Columbia, says better communication within the force is needed to keep the public informed about Mounties facing criminal charges. (CBC)  It has taken more than a year, but the RCMP on Tuesday released information about an impaired driving charge against one of their own. Richmond RCMP officer Kulwant Singh Malhi, 42, was arrested in October 2007 after a hit-and-run collision in Richmond, B.C., that occurred while he was off duty. He was charged in March this year with impaired driving, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and failure to remain at the scene of an accident. This case was never reported until Tuesday when a community newspaper inquired about Malhi’s appearance in Richmond Provincial Court, said Cpl. Tim Shields, a spokesman for the RCMP in British Columbia. Shields said he was never informed of Malhi’s case, even though the RCMP communications department should be the first to know about cases involving members of the force being charged with or facing impaired driving charges. “This obviously involves a complete lack of judgment. It is something that all of us recognize is a serious threat to public safety. Impaired driving is the No. 1 criminal cause of death in Canada,” Shields said. “I am in charge of communications for the RCMP for all of British Columbia, and I am doing everything in my power to ensure that if an RCMP member is involved in an incident such as this, that it will become public as quickly as possible,” he said.  Mountie accused of leaving crash scene The RCMP held a news conference Tuesday afternoon following Malhi’s court appearance in the morning. Malhi will be back in court on Jan. 15. The crash Malhi is accused of being involved in happened on Oct. 20, 2007. A black Nissan Ultima rear-ended a Honda Civic shortly before 3 a.m. at No. 4 and Francis roads, Shields said. No one was injured in the collision, but about 30 minutes later Richmond RCMP received another 911 call from a motorist about a Ultima being driven in an erratic manner southbound on Highway 99. The caller followed the vehicle to Delta and then Ladner, both suburbs of Vancouver, while staying on the phone with police, Shields said. The Ultima finally stopped in the driveway of a residence in Ladner. “Delta Police officers arrived minutes later, and the lone male occupant of the Ultima was arrested for impaired driving,” Shields said. The Ultima turned out to be an unmarked police vehicle. Other officers facing drunk driving allegations This is the latest Metro Vancouver police officer to be charged with impaired driving or facing similar charges. Const. Peter Hodson of the Vancouver Police Department has been charged with impaired driving and will appear in court on Dec. 29.  Const.Tomi Hamner of the New Westminster Police Service is scheduled to appear in provincial court on Dec. 17 to face a charge of impaired driving following a single-vehicle accident in North Vancouver in October. RCMP Cpl. Benjamin Montgomery Robinson is scheduled to appear in provincial court on Jan. 15 to face a charge of impaired driving causing death. Robinson is a member of the RCMP’s Vancouver 2010 integrated security unit. North Vancouver RCMP Cpl. Darren Baker will be tried on impaired driving charges on Jan. 27, 2009. His was charged after his vehicle was stopped last December by West Vancouver city police officers. Hodson, Hamner and Baker have all been reassigned while their cases proceed in court. Robinson, however, has been suspended with pay.”

Charges have been stayed for an RCMP officer accused of driving drunk and fleeing after a fender-bender three years ago. Const.

Provincial Court in Richmond Thursday on the third and final day of Malhi’s trial. Malhi remains suspended with pay and a Code of Conduct investigation is under way.

Coquitlam RCMP officer charged for drunk driving. A B.C. RCMP officer has been charged with impaired driving after being stopped by members of his own detachment on his way from the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam early Friday morning. The officer was released from custody on a promise to appear in a Port Coquitlam court on Jan. 10, 2010. The name of the officer has not been released, but police did say he has been moved to administrative duties pending the completion of the criminal investigation and a parallel internal investigation. Drunk driving is beyond stupid… *Especially* when it’s a cop.  I just can’t understand why anyone would drive drunk. Especially a police officer.  What the hell is wrong with these people? Not good.

Alberta should not renew RCMP contract  “And the RCMP has changed, for the worse. At the headquarters level there hasn’t been a good report in years. Various inquiries have found incompetence, poor training, poor discipline, poor co-ordination and communication, and outright dishonesty. Those inquiries have used phrases like “horribly broken,” “often flawed,” “not justified” and so on.

News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/Alberta+should+renew+RCMP+contract/3498184/story.html?cid=megadrop_story

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it
Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”

Complainers and whistle Blowers seem not be be liked anywhere.. Get used to it.
.
A good name is worth more than silver and gold, and a tarnished one cannot be accepted.. it is a clear loser and not a winner.
I learned long time ago important people do not like me, you embarrassing them in writing, posting their sins on the nets, for they send the police to my home 6 times now, a prime minister, a mayor, and a premier now too, and I next tell the police I want to contact the news media now about this and the police take off..  and they also threaten to sue me.. I tell them to go ahead I need the publicity..
they try to contact my employer but I am retired..
I like to write an email  letter of complaint  directly to a person, and also next send a copy to the news editors, politicians, but note  also to post the letter on the net and tell them all it is on the net.. even the last 2 decades, and from my experience that is the only thing that works effectively still.
Again my complaint  #1

.

Recently I had problems with my internet connection for a whole week, and I get different advice from the so called experts to last a life time too.. Trouble shooting problems with computers can be a complex undertaking caused by a very small unresolved problem even. A Bell technician finally after 2 years  showed up today at my home at 1:30 PM at Acanac’s suggestion and he reduced my internet, modem speed from 10 megs to 5 megs.. because he thinks the Acanac modem is the problem, it does not want to accept the 10 meg causing the recent past internet connectivity problem.. Somehow I doubted it .. there also had to be other factors elsewhere? Everything works great so far, web page connectivity and Utorrent download, so how can I complain, and let’s hope it lasts that way..

But I also suspect the peak line demands, capping
 and line balance is part of the problem. The problem occasionally comes back. When it gets worse I will write even again to all.

Problems! These days 40 percent of Canadian Internet Customers are rightfully dissatisfied with the poor lies, support services from their internet suppliers, especially the biggest ones, such as Bell, Videotron, Rogers, . Why?

Servicing computers, providing technical support is not an easy business, even the so called experts often get it wrong.. 2 years problem with a brand new computer remained unsolved and why? the experts looked for complex problems.. and it next finally turned out to be a defective 15 dollars hard drive cable. By law the internet is unregulated.. and these supposedly consumer protection agencies now still all they can do is a useless pretentious mediation approach and next it is useless because Bell plays dirty, hardball still.. court actions cannot be enforced. And any experienced lawyer will tell you, you need to first in writing personally to ask the specific bad people to repent first, to first give them a chance to do so, before you can next go public, and try to shame them into action, and still that is the sole approach than works.. for in reality the pretentious CRTC, Cops, consumer agencies do not really care about helping the small fries.. they only care about themselves. So I practice what I preach to you as well.. I put it in writing on the net too, it is an embarrassing approach but still the only one that works.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/deceptive-unacceptable-unfair-business-trade-practices-unreliable-internet-access/

My Complaint #2
About Politics- Political, corruptions, inducements, Christians, Alcoholics
.
The supposed past big news over the past decade by the liberals was  that several high profile Christian advocates are winning Conservative nominations across the country. The Globe &  Mail had a rational analysis of the situation in an editorial. so what!
It is difficult to understand the past media fuss about Christian activists helping to secure the nominations of at least eight Canadian federal Conservative candidates in the next election. It is  no less  difficult not to understand why no one opposes the election of Alcoholics, or the use of Alcohol to try to secure votes.. but they will oppose the election of Christian persons, It is not difficult to understand why some newspapers would splash a headline on the topic across their front page, thereby starting the entire insanity in the first place.
First off, let’s look at the problem with the current system. By signing up a group of people to pack a nomination meeting, the chances of nominating a candidate who the party and constituents do not want is dramatically increased.
With the current political nominating system it’s very easy to trade votes for money, booze, or favours, and it becomes about stacking meetings rather than being the “best” candidate. And  during the leadership race, we saw blatant restrictions of membership forms. If you didn’t support a certain candidate  ,it was impossible to get a membership form from the party, and when you were granted one, it would often take months to get it, or it would be mailed to the wrong address. Since it’s all about being on the membership list and it’s pretty easy to keep people off the membership list, abuse is practically encouraged. So why not switch to the primary system? Every Canadian could register with a party or as a non-partisan on their income tax by checking a box.  Sure, you could still truck in your church members to vote so long as they’re registered to the party in question but with many more eligible voters, it would become a lot harder to take over a riding or win a nomination. With a wider range of people voting, it would presumably allow for candidates the general population prefers to be nominated. It would also become impossible to restrict membership forms, leaving leadership races more wide open and democratic… considering the bad press all parties get through nasty nomination battles and leadership races, it would be a solution everyone would benefit from. Don’t forget a recall system too.
119. (1) Every one who(a) being the holder of a judicial office, or being a
member of Parliament or of the legislature of a province, corruptly
(i) accepts or obtains,
(ii) agrees to accept, or
(iii) attempts to obtain,
any money, valuable consideration, office, place or employment for himself or
another person in respect of anything done or omitted or to be done or omitted
by him in his official capacity, or
(b) gives or offers, corruptly, to a person mentioned in paragraph (a) any
money, valuable consideration, office, place or employment in respect of
anything done or omitted or to be done or omitted by him in his official
capacity for himself or another person,
is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not
exceeding fourteen years.
A charismatic leader is someone who really cares about the good welfare of all the people in Canada equally, French or English, easterner or westerner, or whatever, and not another pretender, Christian imposter, Alcoholic, liars, self centered, greedy persons that we seem to too often have instead..
so don’t be stupid NOW again,
and don’t select a Liberal leader who
– is a pretender Christian,
– a liar,
– an alcoholic,
– or one who cannot speak english, never mind read it.
but note above all it has to be one only from Quebec..
TRUDEAU’S SON Justine IS TOO YOUNG, and INEXPERIENCED STILL.
for without the support of the Quebec voters, without a PM from Quebec, you next cannot hope to have a majority government as Harper keeps on finding out.. again and again!

I STILL DO OFTEN LOUDLY, RIGHTFULLY COMPLAIN ABOUT BIG BAD CORPORATIONS, BAD GOVERNMENTS, BAD POLITICIANS, BAD MANAGERS, BAD CIVIL AN PUBLIC SERVANTS, BAD PROFESSIONALS TOO ANYWAY.

.

MANY PEOPLE DO INITIALLY TELL ME I AM WRONG IN MY EFFORTS, ATTEMPTS, AND THEY  ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO COME AND ASK ME NEXT FOR HELP WHEN THEY ARE ALSO ABUSED. I OFTEN NEXT  ASK WHY THEY COME IF THEY BEFORE WERE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF WHAT I DID. THEY OFTEN REPLY, CAUSE NO ONE CAN HELP THEM EFFECTIVELY.

.

IT IS NOW MORE  RARE BUT I DO ALSO NOW STILL GET BULLIED BY RELIGIOUS BULLIES, ABUSERS TOO.. not just by bad cops.. likley they too are alcoholics.,
.
   
The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant  bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons  who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” .. clearly these immoral  Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth,  most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result  of  that   the bully, he or she, tries falsely to   build  their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against  his proclaimed enemies, which too often also  is most people , for  he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt,  and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others.  I have seen this type of wrong behavior not just in bad managers, bad politicians, bad persons, but  in alcoholics, and most often in Albertan rednecks ,but also  in religious   fundamentals evangelicals who promote hated towards Pentecostal Christians as well, and  now as well as the crooked pastor wrongfully  fighting for control over others. Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest.

Who can you trust when it comes to money?

Filed under: News and politics — thenonconformer @ 5:55 am
Tags: , , , ,

 

Hey I cannot even trust the local store clerks to  charge the right price on anything I  buy and anything still, for the  advertised price and the price on their computers often still differ now too.. and some clerks just try to charge me often  even twice for the same items so they can put more money into their own pockets. Who can you trust..  not the business world.

  

 80 percent of U.S. businesses are overcharged on their phone bills while telecom companies reap profits from the supposedly “accidental” billing errors ”When Alexander Graham Bell placed the first phone call to Thomas Watson, it is doubtful he was considering whether he would be overcharged for the call. Many American businesses have the same attitude, and it’s just easier for them to trust that the phone company is charging the correct amount than scrutinize each item on the bill.. few take the time to have someone look over the bill for errors. The problem comes from the long-standing system phone companies use to track their services and billing. The system is split into two sections: The section that keeps track of what services a customer has, and the section that bills the customers. “It’s quite often the case that there’s faulty entry between the two systems, which results in faulty billing.” “The process itself is inherently faulty,” Billing errors have been occurring since the dawn of telecommunications, and certain phone providers can be almost relied on to make trademark mistakes, because, invariably, those kinds of errors are repetitive; they happen quite often,”  It is in the phone companies’ interest to allow these mistakes to be made..some companies, especially the older, more established ones, can give him some bureaucratic static when he is trying to recover his clients’ money. “You can go for weeks and months just trying to get to the right person that you need to talk to, because one person sends you to another person, who sends you to another person,” he said, but that’s not he only obstacle a customer faces. “It’s quite often the case that a vendor will say, ‘Well, it was on your bill. Why haven’t you ever noticed it before?’ Well, the fact is that it should never have been on my bill to begin with.” A consumer may be paying a bill, and if they suddenly see an extra $5 charge, most assume it’s a surcharge and pay the bill without thinking about it. The reality is that the charge could have come from a feature used by anyone in the customer’s area, or data could have been entered into the billing system incorrectly. These small charges add up over the course of service, so  recommends keep  a close eye on your bill, and not pay  for anything you’re not using. Ignorance and complacency are two big obstacles for companies and phone users to overcome before they can save money. Many do not think to check their bill, and few realize just how much money they are giving away over the course of their service. It is a good idea to take the time to look over your bill for mistakes. Just don’t rely on the phone company to do it for you. The overcharging problem is rampant across all aspects of telecommunications ” This also applies now to Bell Sympatico as well as I have clearly detailed before.. 

 

Just do an internet  search of Sympatico, thenonconformer. As simple as that too.

Report card: Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers

   
 
In Canada, many people, citizens  are needlessly dying because the hospital infection rates continued to rise  and all of the Health Ministers should be hung for this now immediately too, for murder, and I have been now saying that rightfully and openly for years now too.. do immediately deal with it. Report Card” Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers are really  not doing enough to fight infections: while the Doctors take big pay cheques still home
 
 
Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates  The Canadian Press -  TORONTO – Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections.

“CP Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates continued to rise   TORONTO — Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections. But despite that, rates of these infections continued to rise in the years immediately following the outbreaks, a new study reveals. Rates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – more than doubled in the period from 1999 to 2005, said the study, which was based on a survey of Canadian hospitals with more 80 or more patient beds.  Clostridium difficile infections ( shit  disease ) also rose over that period and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus climbed 77 per cent over the period. “Despite the two major communicable diseases – SARS and C. difficile – despite the emphasis by the Canadian Public Safety Institute on safer health care, despite all those things, our institutional approaches to infection control have changed remarkably little,” said Dr. Andrew Simor, head of microbiology at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Simor was not involved in the study. “And the outcomes, as a result, have gone in the wrong direction.” The survey was conducted in 2006 by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., and was a follow-up to an earlier survey conducted in 1999. Both were funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The results, which will be published in the December issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that while hospitals reported an increase in staff devoted to infection control, increasing numbers of patients fell prey to hospital-acquired infections. There were 5.2 cases of MRSA per 1,000 hospital admissions in 2005, up from two per 1,000 in 1999. There was also an upward trend in C. difficile infections, and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with VRE soared. “We have to roll up our sleeves,” said lead author Dr. Dick Zoutman, head of infection control at Kingston General Hospital. But while the numbers don’t look good, the director of infectious disease prevention and control with Ontario’s public health agency raised a couple of important caveats. Dr. Michael Gardam suggested hiring new infection control staff is only one step in improving a hospital’s infection control performance. Real improvement requires a commitment and effort from all those involved in patient care in an institution, he said – and that takes time. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Gardam said. “You need to have more infection control practitioners. And you need to bring about culture change. And just doing the resources side of things I don’t believe will actually get you there.” Gardam also suggested the numbers might have been worse but for the injection of resources that followed the 2003 SARS outbreak and the C. difficile crisis, which first came to light in 2004. “Probably we are having an impact, we are slowing the increase,” said Gardam, who was not involved in the study. “But we’re not actually achieving a real steady state and we’re not actually seeing a decrease.” That’s especially worrying given the current state of the economy, said both Zoutman and Simor, who noted that infection control efforts are an easy target when hospitals are trying to cut costs. “I’m concerned now that it’s more challenging economic times … that we don’t lose (sight of) this,” said Zoutman. “Because it’s a false economy. It’s penny wise, pound foolish.” “
 and don’t you dare get sick and go to a Hospital you might have to find out what the doctors, nurses, hospital and Medicare are really like now too

What they often do call news is mere lies, spin doctors, not real facts

 

cbcnews

- Its is undeniable reality that most of Churches today, at least over half,  are still   often cultural, social  groups, not real Christian Churches, and that includes both the white and black, ethnic churches.

- Obama election shows deep racial divide in church or the deep theological divides? or what is accepted in one denomination can not be accepted in others. The liberal churches clearly voted for Obama.

As posted on the net.

Obama election shows deep racial or a religious divide in church supposedly says ” The Associated Press – NEW YORK (AP) – The barrier-crossing election of Barack Obama did little to bridge the deep racial divide in American churches. In fact, some clergy say it has only served to underscore their differences. While nonwhite Christians voted overwhelmingly for Obama, most white Christians backed John McCain, according to exit polls. The Rev. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the denomination’s flagship school, said white evangelicals backed McCain because of his opposition to abortion rights, not because of the race of either candidate. According to Associated Press exit polls, 34 percent of white Protestants voted for Obama, while 65 percent went with McCain. Obama won the overall Roman Catholic vote, but white Catholics backed McCain by a slim majority, 52 percent to 47 percent. Among white Christians, the racial gap was most pronounced with evangelicals: 74 percent backed McCain, 24 percent backed Obama. The pattern is not new and fits the larger trend of white voters overall, the majority of whom voted for McCain..” ignores the fact the white Christians  tend to be from the more traditional established Christian  churches.

- Religious  White  people’s  racial values was, is not the only issue for many of them now still not supporting Obama. Many white people still also had voted for Obama, and note this that many white people, rightfully or wrongfully,  oppose Obama’s socialism which they tend to  seem to see as as another form of communism too. Many religious persons still do see Obama rather rightfully as a non Christian

-Also the Black Christians and clearly wrongfully had supported their own  race over adequate religious values  for Obama’s reality of being a true Christian is still very much debatable. He supports drinking alcohol, gays, abortion and who knows what, and  he is the first political candidate to be addressed as an Anti Christ by many because  of his inadequate Christian beliefs, or  because he  is a non Christian?

Ten Faith Factors for Election Night

1.How Many Obamagelicals Are There? – It might seem farfetched that a socialist-terror-lovin’-pro-abortion candidate like Obama could win any evangelical Christians but he’s been courting them fervently since he began his presidential run. The key the 40% of evangelicals who call themselves “moderate” or “liberal.” Point of reference: John Kerry won 21% of white evangelicals, Gore 18%. Bill Clinton in 1996 won 26%.    

 

2.  Will Palin Turn Out the “Religious Right”? — By picking Sarah Palin, John McCain gambled that she’d be able to rev up the evangelical “base.” Even as her popularity has fallen generally, evangelicals still love her (some even believing she was sent to battle the anti-Christ.) Assuming most conservative evangelicals vote for McCain, the second question is: how many will show up? Point of reference: white evangelicals accounted for 23% of the electorate in 2004.

3. Do Midwestern Evangelicals Split With Their Brethren? — Recent polls have showed Obama trailing badly among evangelicals in Florida and Colorado but doing quite well with them in Michigan, Ohio and

Pennsylvania. If he succeeds there, he may have tapped into regional differences in style, theology and politics and launch a new era in faith-and-politics punditry, in which we no longer talk about “the evangelical vote” as a geographically uniform phenomenon.4. Will Catholics Ignore Their Bishops? – The overall Catholic vote has gone with the popular vote winner every election since 1968. Catholic Bishops have been urging Catholic voters to vote for pro-life candidates but a majority of Catholic voters are now pro-choice so it remains to be seen what influence the church will have. (Obama is also winning with the 100-year-old-nuns bloc) Another factor in Obama’s favor: a higher percentage of the Catholic vote will be Latino this year. Last election, George W. Bush won the Catholic 52%-46%.

 

5. Can Obama Finally Bowl a Strike With Skeptical White Catholics? – During the primaries, Obama did poorly with white Catholics, often working class ethnics or their offspring. Remember his feeble attempt to curry favor through bowling? They tend to be culturally conservative and haven’t voted for a Democrat since 1996. On the other hand, they’re especially concerned about the economy this year, and Joe Biden has been trying to bond with them as a fellow “cultural Catholics.” Point of reference: In 2004, Bush won 56% of white Catholics, Kerry 43%.

6. Will Whitebread Protestants Back the Black Guy? – Recent polls show Democrats gaining with a group that had leaned Republican for most of the past few decades – Mainline Protestants. It appears that while Sarah Palin energized evangelicals, she may have alienated some Mainliners. In 2004, they went for President George W. Bush 54%-46%.

7. Will Latino Protestants Vote Their Values or the Pocketbook? – One positive trend for Obama will likely be the shift of Latinos from the Republican side, where they resided in 2004, to the Democrats. The hidden religious story: most of the shift is driven by Latino Protestants. Many are evangelical and liked Bush’s Christian faith and his conservative positions on social issues (gay marriage, abortion) but have shifted to Obama because of the economy and concerns about immigration.

8. How Will the Kinda-Sorta Religious Vote? – In recent elections, the most religious you were, the more likely you were to vote Republican. This is known as the God Gap, which will still certainly exist. But watch for two things: among weekly churchoers how big is McCain’s margin? Bush won that group 61%-39% Second, Kerry last time beat Bush among more occasional churchgoers 53%-47%. Will Obama increase that margin?

9. Will Jews Schlep to Republican Side? – This only really matters in

Florida, and even there it doesn’t matter as much as you’d think (Jews made up 5% of the electorate there in 2004). Early polls had Obama struggling among Jews – in part because of fears about his former church’s connections to Louis Farrakhan — but more recently he’s caught up, possibly because Jews fear that Sarah Palin is an extreme evangelical. Or possibly the Sarah Silverman factor. Jews reportedly went about 75%-25% for Kerry.10. Will the GOP Become the ROP? - Will Republicans become the Religiously Oriented Party? In 2004, white evangelicals made up 36% of Bush voters.
Will that go up or down? If it becomes an even more dominant force within the party, how will that shape either the way McCain governs if he wins or, if he loses, how the Republicans re-invent themselves.

Carla Hinton  Religion Editor http://blog.newsok.com/religionandvalues/2008/10/31/389

so what do you say  about the faith factor…

Though the economy clearly was the defining issue of the election, Obama forged a new coalition by luring millions of religious left voters who had avoided Democrats in recent years.

In short:

He narrowed the God Gap. Bush beat Kerry among weekly church-goers by 61%-39%. McCain is beating Obama 54%-44% Most of that gain appears to have come from Protestants rather than Catholics

 

He won Catholics back. Early exit polls indicate he won 54% of the Catholic vote compared to 45% for John McCain. George W. Bush won the Catholic vote 52%-46%. Most of those gains came from Catholics who don’t attend mass weekly.

He also improved among white Catholics, according to the early exit polls. Bush got 56%-43% As of now, McCain lead by just 51%-49% This was despite an aggressive push by more than 50 Bishops to encourage Catholics to focus on abortion as the central issue.

He man real gainst among Evangelicals. Evangelicals and Born Again Christians made up a greater portion of the electorate this year than last election but that didn’t all accrue to McCain’s benefit, as predict. Obama improved slightly on a national level, getting 25% compared to Kerry’s 21%

But far more important, he made significant progress in the pivotal rustbelt states that won him the election. For instance, evangelicals flooded the polls in Ohio and Obama significantly improved on Kerry’s showing.

He attracted more Mainline Protestants – Though shifting toward the center in recent years, mainline Protestants — once a core of the Republican party — – still went for the Republicans in 2004. The exit polls didn’t ask specifically about mainline Protestants but it appears Obama improved slightly with this group..

He energized the lightly religious. Though secular voters already voted Democratic, they did so by an even bigger margin this year. Even more important, a quarter of the electorate says they go to worship services but only a few times a year. Kerry won that group with 54%-45%. Obama won 61%-38%

BREAKING: Catholic Shift to Obama

The rap on Obama during the primaries was that he couldn’t win because he struggled with Catholics. Apparently, he got past that. Early exit polls indicate he won 54% of the Catholic vote compared to 45% for John McCain….

Obama Luring Rest Belt Evangelicals But Not Southerners

Obama seems to have made far more progress with Born Again Christians in rust belt states than in the South. Based on preliminary exit polls: Florida: 78%-20% (McCain-Obama) Virginia: 78%-21% Ohio: 70%-29% Indiana: 66%-32%

BREAKING: Weekly Churchgoers vs. Occasionals

One thing that puzzles me about these numbers: Obama’s progress among Catholics is with those who don’t attend mass weekly. But among Protestants, he improved among those who do attend weekly. One possible theory: abortion. Mass-attending Catholics are more likely…

Some people still seem to have it all wrong and why?

 
Cabinet Ministers too  are here to serve the citizens, and so are the Police..
 
Now even since I was about 8 years old in Canada I had learned that the Cops were not to be trusted, when my neighbor was a cop,  and I saw firsthand what he was really like.. and decades later that has still been true as well in my unwanted police encounters, RCMP included now … but rightfully now I don’t even trust the pastors, lawyers, realtors, accountants as well..
 
Now I recently had called the Police in Toronto to report a crime.  The sergeant I assumed at the other end on the phone, by how he treated me, got the wrong mistake that he was my boss, that  I had to do what he said, and he could order me around, and even lecture me , as the police recordings will show.. and we even got into a disagreement where he had said to me that ” the police were not here to serve the citizens” ..  and I reminded him still rightfully   that he was not my boss, nor my superior, nor my doctor, nor my pastor, nor anything else to me, and that I did not call him to get his opinions, advice, to get a lecture, but I had called him to report a crime , and for him next  to get on with taking down the particulars of the crime, such as my name, address etc..  clearly it was something that after 15 minutes of trying to lecture me he had firstly had failed to do. Now  I am an old man, retired now  too, and still it it was, inappropriate and it is too late for Him to  try to lecture or boss me around.

Why are there so many alcoholics also and now  always in denial? and why do they often lie,  cheat, steal also now? Because if they do admit the truth they are alcoholics, sinners too  they do have now to repent of the sin of disobeying God’s word about being drunk too.. so they take the ostrich denial approach instead too often. Alcoholism still is a sin of a deliberate, personal choice, and to be set free you have to admit your sin, confess it, renounce it, ask God for forgiveness through Jesus Christ as well.. It is not only wrong for the average person it is also especially wrong for leaders in the government, politicians.   
    
Noboody next also has to help them.. they all rightfully should be fired.. so they can next learn to help themselves.. for firstly you cannot help a person , a clear sinner too, who refuses to admit he needs help or even has a problem, helping him it is a waste of time and resources .. do rather see also my many posts on how to deal with control freaks.. abusers..
 

 

I really wonder how so many people I talk to , deal with these day have got it all so wrong, what now makes even think that I am their slave, that they are my lord and master, and I have to obey their commands, instructions. Now here also now how  did they   get to very sad state of mind   for certainly it is not in the Canadian charter of rights, not even in the US constitution for that matter. How did they get the wrong impression that I work for them and I now have to listen and to do all that they tell me to do ? How???
 
Now we here firstly need to look firstly at the meaning of two  words, “Minister”, and “Service.”. while to me these words are clearly simple to understand, their meaning as well.. a Minister is elected to serve the citizens, not himself or his party..  Now the same thing applies to the police they are here to serve the citizens, not themselves their superiors, or the political masters. A Minister also is not our Lord, or Master, and we the  citizens not here to serve him or to serve any other civil or public servants, professionals now as well. Professional Respect also has to be mutual, and it has to be earned, it can be enforced..
