another gross act of immorality

Government resources, those resources of taxpayers, of the agencies, boards and commissions of the government are not to be used for political fundraising. That practice is wrong, it is totally unacceptable, it is totally inappropriate and that has been communicated in no uncertain terms,” Transport Minister John Baird, but who in realty  actually ENFORCES it now? The Conservative federal government clearly also has a double standard when it comes to holding their own, cabinet ministers included, accountable for breaking the rules.  

 OTTAWA–Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt was under fire Thursday in the House of Commons in light of a Star story about a political fundraiser for her that was organized out of the Toronto Port Authority, a federal agency she once ran. Critics called for an investigation by ethics commissioner Mary Dawson over whether Raitt breached the rules when the Sept. 24 $250-a-head Toronto fundraiser was run out of the office of the president of the port authority. New Democrat MP Olivia Chow (Trinity-Spadina) said: “I’m sure you will agree that this story raised real concerns about the conduct of the minister involved as well as the impartiality of the TPA’s board, management and staff.” Janet MacDonald, executive assistant to acting president Alan Paul, sent an invitation to the fundraiser on port authority email. MacDonald was formerly Raitt’s assistant at the agency. Registered lobbyist Michael Sweeney, vice-president industry affairs of the Cement Association of Canada, was also involved in helping organizing the event. His association lobbied the government eight times from March to August, including Raitt and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “This is a severe breach of ethics by Minister Raitt,” Liberal MP Paul Szabo, chair of the parliamentary ethics committee also said .

 OTTAWA — The Conservative government now is flatly denying any involvement in a new Olympic apparel logo that bears an uncanny resemblance to the party’s own moniker. Liberal MP Hedy Fry had suggested Thursday that “crass politics” was behind the striking similarity to the governing party, calling it “embarrassing” in the House of Commons. “Canada’s Olympic Games belong to all Canadians. While it is clear that the Conservative government’s multi-million dollar infrastructure campaign is crassly partisan, can the Prime Minister at least stop trying to politicize the Canadian Winter Olympics?” she had fumed. NDP MP Charlie Angus also weighed in, accusing PM Stephen Harper of peddling political logos “on the backs of our athletes.” Now it does bear a resemblance the Conservative party logo,and there is “No such thing as a coincidence”. You can’t though trust any Conservaves to tell the truth here too.

 Ontario’s Auditor General Jim McCarter will release a report next week on his investigation into the untendered contracts and expense abuses at eHealth Ontario.  At issue is a $30 million untendered contract given to IBM for a new computer system at eHealth Ontario that was approved by a   committee of the Liberal cabinet. Even the Ontario Liberals clearly do not want to see any cabinet ministers held accountable for breaking the rules. “The government was ready to turn a blind eye to some of these breaches of policies and procedures and they only say they’re sorry when they are found out and then the change the policies,” “They just don’t care about the use of taxpayers’ money.”

Ontario health minister resigns ahead of report on eHealth spending abusesTORONTO – Ontario’s health minister bowed to months of opposition pressure and tendered his resignation Tuesday on the eve of a report into how the province spent $1 billion over 10 years to create electronic health records.

Quebec trust fund boss Vincent Lacroix sentenced to 13 years in prison MONTREAL – Ex-Norbourg boss Vincent Lacroix was sentenced to 13 years in prison on Friday for bilking clients out of more than $100 million.

“The Alberta premier Stelmach is talking about fiscal restraint and telling others to tighten their belts, but it doesn’t apply to select people in his government. … How can you tell seniors to pay more for prescriptions, force Albertans to wait longer for health care and claw back money from school boards and allow these bonuses to be paid out? “The provincial government paid out nearly $44 million in controversial “achievement bonuses” earlier this year, with Alberta Justice, Service Alberta and Employment and Immigration leading the way. Justice handed out more than $6.7 million in bonuses to civil servants, a figure equal to roughly 1.2 per cent of its total expenses for 2008-9. Service Alberta was second, doling out $2.8 million in bonuses, followed by Employment and Immigration with $2.6 million. The provincial Executive Council gave out $1.4 million and the Treasury Board handed out $2.1 million –amounts equal to about five per cent of their total annual expenses. On average, departments gave out $1.9 million, equal to about 0.7 per cent of their total expenses for the year. Bonuses went to roughly 6,000 civil servants and ranged from zero to 30 per cent of each recipient’s salary. “Taxpayers must be astonished that in this difficult time the government still sees fit to continue with this lavish bonus program,” Liberal finance critic Hugh MacDonald. Alberta Justice spokesman David Dear said  “We are the second-largest department in government with over 3,000 people–the only one larger is the Solicitor General–and perhaps more importantly, a very large percentage of our staff are lawyers,  .” “It’s easy to understand the reaction that some people might have when they look at the number. It is worth noting (that) … every time a rapist is sent to jail, or a drunk driver is sent to prison is because of a lot of hard work by prosecutors and support staff,” he said. The department of the Solicitor General and Public Security gave out $2 million in bonuses, an amount equal to 0.1 per cent of its annual expenses. It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets..

EDMONTON – Senior executives of now-dismantled Alberta health boards collected excessive salaries, pensions and bonuses with little oversight, provincial auditor general Fred Dunn said in a report Friday. Thirty executives shared $18 million in severance,, the auditor’s report suggests widespread incompetence within Alberta’s Tory government. “This is another example of pork-barrelling, handing out payments and perks to friends of the Tories,” A former deputy minister who helped create Alberta Health Services, then ran part of it for nine months, walked away from the cash-strapped department with a $257,500 bonus as part of her severance package. The severance deal for Paddy Meade, whose position with Alberta Health Services ended after about nine months, included two years’ worth of salary (about $1 million), and a $257,500 bonus, the maximum amount possible in her contract. “Taxpayers should be outraged,”

  WE HAVE CONTINUAL NEWS REVELATIONS OF CORRUPTIONS, TAX PAYER’S MONEY ABUSES BY ONTARIO GOVERNMENT WORKERS, FEDERAL WORKERS, CITY OF TORONTO WORKERS, CITY OF MONTREAL WORKERS, CLERGY, TEACHERS, OTHERS AND THE POLICE AS WELL. 

 
Justice – Crooks, liars, thieves, abusers, slanderers, now I have often wondered how, even how some relatives of mine now too, had become so crooked.. some people say it is in the gene, sin is hereditary, everyone has got this gene.. but I am more convinced more than ever it is mainly a personal choice.. no one basically forced them to do something they basically did not want to do, and often their main motive was the love of money, trying to get rich at any costs.. and that is why we continue to see corruptions in the governments even by too many of the civil and public servants. All it takes for evil to prosper is for the good people to do nothing about it, to take an ostrich approach.
 
Corruptions, it goes beyond that to a practice that has been common place.. even because the supervisors themselves are likely corrupt
 
Starting rightfully first at the top public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone best interest.. but also taking away the rewards received by the immoral acts, restitution included. But taking all the criminal proceeds and giving it to the police is mainly another gross act of immorality too.
 
A relative of mine did not start to be a big criminal, he started small by lying, stealing on his expense account. This seems to be the starting point of of many of our civil and public servants now as well and is a real good reasons why the expense accounts need to be monitored as well.. he next went on to major tax evasion now as well, handing out bribes, unfair and restrictive trade business practices too,  and went next into much more corruptions too, lies, abuses, cover-ups..
  
Bad persons, bad clergy, bad  pastors, bad elders, bad cops, bad politicians  continue to exist  cause likely their supporters are  bad too.  (Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

A Peruvian court has sentenced former President Alberto Fujimori to six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to authorizing wiretaps and bribes to politicians, journalists and businessmen. “ And just think, all our ex-prime ministers – Mulroney, Chretien, etc. – are all still runing around scott free! No such thing as justice in Canada– at least, not as far as our politicians are concerned. Polls clearly indicate that half of those birds should be in jail and the other half deported to Bangladesh on the eve of its next cyclone ”   http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/09/30/peru-fujimori-bribe-wiretap-sentence.html 
   
 Lying, thieving, alcoholic, abusive persons,  priests, pastors, Ministers who cannot even change themselves for the good are of no use to anyone as well. I do not have to accept any of those lying hypocrites who say to me you cannot judge me for I am a good person .. dream on.. I can. Clearly to me a preacher. Minister  whose lifestyle does not match his preaching words to others he rightfully cannot be trusted at all.. he is a false preacher himself.. some how most of them now wrongfully are like that too. Wrongful inactions, Cover ups, False denial of bad politicians, bad cops, bad persons, false pastors, false priests are much too common but nevertheless they do get exposed, revealed to all as to what they are often now like  too, and get what they deserve, and not the first or last time.
 
Former customs agent found guilty of taking bribes from drug smugglers Wed Sep 30, MONTREAL – A former customs agent at Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport has been found guilty of taking bribes from a drug-smuggling ring.
 
Workplace Safety and Insurance Board spent tax dollars in a lavish style. WSIB chair Steven Mahoney alleged to have billed $140,000 in expenses . “The position of WSIB chair is supposed to be a part-time position with a per diem of $550 per day,”  “Mahoney has somehow managed to bill the taxpayer for $141,328.79 in 2008. Based on the WSIB per diem — this means that the ‘part-time’ WSIB chair collected 257 per diems — more per diems, in fact, than there are working days in the year.” ”another example of the rot in the [Premier Dalton] McGuinty [Liberal] government.” ”[He filed expenses for ] Meals where he had no meetings, and travel to China, Australia, Hong Kong and elsewhere. He travelled so much, he got lost in Myrtle Beach, where he billed four days for one day of meetings, and then expensed a GPS system,”  This is disgusting.   Another day, another political scandal. I wish that all levels of government were more accountable to the public that elects them and is forced to put trust in them.  Everytime I read one of these stories, the anger inside me swells;knowing that my taxes and expenses keep increasing while these irresponsible public servants take advantage of their position. Legal Robbery! Enough is ENOUGH! Criminal charges should be laid!    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/toronto/story/2009/10/01/wsib-expenses.html
          
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty still serves as a rightful deterrent example to all and is still one of the best approaches on how to deal with the evil persons. Even the Bible records openly the unrepentant sins of many persons and their real  negative consequences.  
 
FOR WE ALL TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL. 
 
And once exposed most people do not accept, support  a crook, even if it is a Minister now too.
 
Most people still rightfully do blame the governments, politicians, bad cops and bad judges, for the existence of much too many crooked civil and public servants, crooked business persons, crooked persons in Canada.  More Laws that are unenforced also tend to be still mostly useless too. Let’s simply just agree the whole system is often corrupt, eh?
 
We need better Policing and “Tougher penalties for sure!” You will get a longer jail sentence for robbing a convenience store of $50 than fleecing consumers,  investors for millions (billions) or stealing any of the tax payer’s money.    Put all of the criminals in jail, and their bad supervisors now too,  where they belong, and always do  take way from them all that they have stolen now as well..  Restitution of all items stolen should be in the criminal sentencing now as well..  Until people start getting fired and criminal charges are laid, the bad acts of theirs will continue. And do amend the criminal code to include a mandatory 5 year minimum jail sentence and a fine not less than 10 times the money involved, for breach of public trust. This amendment would cover all forms of corruption from conflict of interest to false accounting. By the time the first dozen or so of these crooks have been banged up – the rest won’t find a bad public office so attractive once they know they can’t abuse,  fleece the citizens, consumers, taxpayer.
 
 
David Letterman admits to affairs with employees – “Sinning with Bathsheba”.. Now if he Letterman was a politician that would be something else.. “It may seem a bit apples-and-oranges to compare Letterman with politicians, who are vulnerable because there is a moral high ground inherent in their position as government officials, particularly if they are conservatives who have espoused family values but now if Letterman again  goes after others who have sinned when we know the same of him, his humor will smack of hypocrisy. David Letterman affair is no joke for the talk show host’s revelation that he had relationships with female employees has already sparked many  impassioned discussion about his hypocrisy and sex in the workplace. After years of mocking other public figures for their sexual indiscretions, Letterman, 62, is facing scrutiny for behavior that is verboten in many workplaces. Many observers were taken aback by the casual tone Letterman used to describe his sexual relationships with female employees. Letterman  did not express any contrition for cheating on his wife, Regina Lasko, whom he dated for 23 years before their marriage in March.  He was married earlier this year to his long-term partner and is father to six-year-old Harry; Conservative critics, in particular, expressed disgust with the comedian, whose frequent potshots at former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin — including a crude joke he made in June about her daughter — have infuriated many on the right. ” He seemed ignorant of the issue of sexual harassment. These women worked for him.” Nor too concerned as to how many others now will ridicule him in reality  and the negative effect it will have also on him.. Still, one false move now still risks even more personal ruin. Letterman’s extended run-in with Sarah Palin over the summer over some ill-conceived japes at her daughter’s expense indicated he can be a bit tone deaf as to how he is being perceived. “  Nevertheless he Letterman  now faces being scorned by others for a bad reputation…     If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. Certainly that adage has proved true for the beleaguered talkshow host David Letterman this weekend as he faced a barrage of mockery from his acid-tongued rivals.The sharp-witted late-night TV star, who regularly skewers the foibles of other celebrities, found himself on the end of the same treatment after being at the centre of a bizarre blackmail plot over the sexual affairs he had with younger female staff members.  The ribbing and jibing will be a bitter experience for Letterman. Though he announced the news of his affairs and the blackmail plot on his own show – and has joked about it himself – the news has stunned America.  Now he finds himself at the centre of a media storm that  has made him the butt of water-cooler jokes and gossip across the nation. What a bad reputation to live down too. Too many will see the latest episode as some sort of karmic revenge for Letterman’s often merciless take on the moral lapses of others.http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/oct/04/david-letterman-affairs-blackmail-jokes

Toronto teacher faces child-sex charges CBC.ca –  A Grade 10 teacher at Toronto’s Jarvis Collegiate high school has been charged with trying to allegedly  initiate sexual contact with two teenaged boys. David Dewees, 32, was arrested and charged Thursday with two counts of invitation to sexual touching, as well as two counts of luring, Toronto police said. Dewees is accused of making “inappropriate contact” with the boys online. Dewees is alleged to have committed those offences at the Ontario Pioneer Camp in Port Sydney, Ont., between July 2008 and July 2009. He’s been a volunteer counsellor at the Christian camp since 1997. David Dewees  the high school teacher and former day camp counsellor charged with sexual offences involving boys under 16 killed himself at High Park subway station next. Toronto Police sources confirmed Jarvis Collegiate teacher David Dewees apparently lay down on the tracks as a Metro train approached around 8 a.m. as horrified witnesses watched.

(Prov 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Eccl 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.  (Prov 22:14 KJV)  The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.
 
WHEN DEALING WITH A BAD POLITICIAN I OFTEN DO FIRST START TO LOOK FOR THE MAIN THINGS THAT SOCIETY AS A WHOLE WILL STILL NOT ACCEPT – SUCH AS:
1: Stealing money, abusing their expense account
2: Adultery, extra marital affairs
3: Alcoholism, bad drugs usage, indication of loss of self control
4: The false, always unacceptable Physical, verbal abuses, Bullying  of others ( SUCH AS DONE OFTEN NOW BY BELL THE BULLY, LIAR TOO)
5: Other serious MORAL wrong doings
 
While  most people do not practice morality but they still do think it is important values to have in our leaders now too..
 
A brother of mine had written to me some interesting comments about the need to deal with hireling type preachers and it should include their restitutions as well.. Would be nice if everyone practiced it now too. The persons emphasizing restitution too.
 
Funny some people claim they are God inspired when they continually do point out the sins of other pastors, but when I also next do  point out their own unacceptable, unrepentant of sins, hypocrisy they next often falsely say I myself am merely being bitter.. how doubled standard they personally now are as well.  Now to me what I hear from them it is still often just mere hypocrisy, coming from them.  I would be lying to you if I thought they now were actually honest and believable, for the last many decades now too sadly.. Really sorry too  but in sincerity for me now sadly still  I do not believe most of what they do  say is even being done in real truth, in real Christian love,  not even about the need of Christian restitution.. ..Rather sadly these critics or rather bashers, I have also often seen firsthand how some of these critics have lied to me, others, to themselves, and distorted the truths for  hidden personal agendas, hopeful  personal gains.. I also have seen  how they do  bully, abuse others, lie about them too, me included, to me they just always wanted to become someone important, to make themselves   more  important over others,  they are still the  false slave driver, and they are not important at all.. To me they are still the kettle calling the pot black.. and for me anyone it seems even you can be a so called Christian critic too these days and even claim to be God inspired, a prophet of the Lord too. For they often for sure are not Christians.. they are still trying to serve self and God at the same time..  it cannot be done. I measure how genuine they firstly are in the real evidence of their love too..
 
(Gal 6:1 KJV)  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.  LK 17:3 “Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. if he repents, seems we do not see that firstly even from most governmental criminals these days too never mind the rest..
 

 From decades of experience I too have learned that there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and perverse people unchecked, unstopped  tend to go to extreme next as well.. they are immoral in many other areas and thus often resort to lying, stealing, tax evasion, abuse of others..
