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?

“”We worship an awesome God in the blue states,” Barack Obama declared during his 2004 Democratic convention keynote.

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..

Accuracy Of Polls a valid Question In Itself

 
 
Polls is still like adding in arithmetic, just  leave out some numbers and you get a wrong answer. As simple as that,
 
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/07/what-they-often-do-call-news-is-mere-lies-spin-doctors-not-real-facts/

 70 percent of all persons going to all of the Christians Churches are still not born again in reality yet.. There are born again Baptist, Brethren, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, and also now Catholics too The born again segment is large and diverse really is not true when there is still only one church, one Jesus Christ, You are truly born again or your are not born again. If you are a true born again Christian you do not support Gay marriages, drunkenness, alcohol, drugs, smoking, abortion like Barrack Obama or Joe Biden did, does. It is also hypocrisys  to say that you personally do support good Christian moral values but for you and your family not live them too. Reminds you of anyone? What about Sarah Palin.

   “Born again Christians” or the “Evangelicals” are defined for a start as the professing Christian  people who said they have made a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, they are married to Him,  that is still important in their life today and who also indicated they believe that when they die they will go to Heaven because they had confessed their sins and had accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. They generally are abstainers from Alcohol, Smoking, drunkenness, drugs, adultery, sex outside of marriage . ” This includes their believing, saying the Bible is the word of God, asserting that the Bible is accurate in all that it teaches; and describing God as the all-knowing, all-powerful, perfect deity who created the universe and still rules it today saying their faith is very important in their life today; believing they have a personal responsibility to share their religious beliefs about Christ with non-Christians; Believing they must help all the poor and needy persons too, believing that Satan exists; believing that eternal salvation is possible only through grace, not works; believing that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth; . Being classified as an evangelical is not dependent upon church attendance or the denominational affiliation of the church attended supposedly..”  Charismatics and Pentecostals are part of this group even if some falsely do not want to accept them. Catholics and Mormons, Jehovah witnesses are   not a part of this grouping.

“Notional Christians “are those who consider themselves to be Christian but do not meet the not born again criteria  such as  Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah witnesses they really are not Christians, mere pretenders, imposters, foolish virgins according to the evangelicals.

A poll a sample of only one thousand supposedly born again Christians is meaningless as it already has a built in error of 70 percent.

Conservatives are Notional Christians , Evangelical Born again Christians, and non Christians, non liberal, non democrats 

 

It is difficult to understand the 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.
  
…Example of a stupid   Poll, you  include the alcoholics, drug addicts, smokers,  as born again Christians . Never!
 

I agree

 

McKenna won’t seek leadership of Liberal Party

“If you have a pen and paper handy as you read the newspapers or watch the television news, you might be able to keep track of potential candidates for the leadership of the Liberal party of Canada.

The list of those who have refused to rule out bids includes Bob Rae, Michael Ignatieff, Frank McKenna, John Manley, Ken Dryden, Gerard Kennedy, Martha Hall Findlay, Ujjal Dosanjh, David McGuinty (Dalton’s brother), Quebec MPs Martin Cauchon and Denis Coderre, and New Brunswick MP Dominic LeBlanc. If we missed anyone, it’s because we lost our notes.

Justin Trudeau, sensibly, has decided that at 36, and having been an MP for a only few hours, he is not yet ready to run for the leadership.

Eleven people sought the leadership in 2006, with Dion emerging as the winner after going into the convention in fourth place, so it’s still a much-sought position, despite some pundits’ ruminating over the demise of the big red machine.

Some advice for those who are considering running: If you can’t inspire, don’t apply.

Canadians are not looking for a Liberal copy of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, or a more eloquent Stephane Dion — they appear to want someone who can genuinely affect them — such as Barack Obama.

The Democratic candidate for the U. S. presidency isn’t going to be on the ballot, but polls conducted this year suggest Canadians would sure like him to be there. (Canadians liked Bill Clinton, too, better than many Americans did.)

A poll conducted in March by the Canadian Press/Harris Decima showed Obama would have twice the support of his nearest rival — whether he was leading the Liberals or Conservatives. That is star power.

Another poll, conducted at the end of June by the Strategic Council for CTV and the Globe and Mail, also suggested he would be favoured by Conservatives and Liberals.

At the federal level, it has been some time since Canadians have been moved by a leader who can be described as visionary. (Whether one likes to admit it or not, Brian Mulroney had some of that in him. He took a dodgy idea — free trade — and sold it well enough to win a majority government.)

So, upon hearing that Manley, who is a former deputy prime minister and finance minister, is considering entering the race, we urge him to reconsider: he should stay put in the private sector and make oodles of money instead.

Manley is competent, classy and fluently bilingual, but inspirational he is not. If Canadians have to choose between he and Harper, they will yawn and sign on for the status quo, unless Harper dreadfully mismanages the economy before the next election, which is unlikely.

Ditto for Dryden, whose French is suspect, but he won’t tear Canadians away from Harper, even if he is good with day care.

Hall Findlay came last in the previous leadership race, and while she is intelligent and represents genuine change, the inspirational factor is missing.

Dosanjh won his B. C. riding by 22 votes after a recount. He needs to win his own riding by at least two dozen votes if he wants to lead Canada.

In fact, of the other names, only three are likely to inspire — Rae, Ignatieff, and possibly Kennedy.

McKenna would bring the avuncular quality to the position, which might do the trick. (He is said to be unlikely to run, though he is currently deputy chairman of the Toronto-Dominion Bank, which can’t be all that fun at the moment.)

The Liberals need to find someone who will lead them, not just someone who they think can win. The difference is easy to spot — on a scale of one to 10, measure the temptation to reach for the remote control when you see him (or her) on television.” http://www.thesudburystar.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1268749

 

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..

 A word to any wise Canadian Liberals October 27, 2008 by thenonconformer

Frank McKenna: The critics are raving 

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!

Try Jean Charest..

Frank McKenna: is a great guy, and so are many others, but they are still not from Quebec.

The Vancouver Sun    RCMP’s reputation takes a beating at Braidwood inquiry   March 5, 2009     You’ll remember that shortly after Robert Dziekanski was Tasered and died in Vancouver International Airport, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it would not be returning a videotape of the incident to its rightful owner for one or two years, because it might taint witness testimony. Well, the tape has certainly had a negative effect, but what it has tainted is the reputation of the RCMP. And it, along with other evidence from the Braidwood inquiry into Dziekanski’s death, reveals that the RCMP and police forces across the country have a lot of work to do to regain the public’s trust. In fact, the tape reveals what could be construed as a practice of using Tasers first and asking questions later, and worse, it reveals that the attending officers couldn’t even trust the notes they made shortly after the incident. This week, Const. Kwesi Millington, the officer who fired the Taser, testified before the inquiry, stating that he feared for the officers’ safety after Dziekanski picked up a stapler. His comments prompted snickers from spectators who watched the tape, and who obviously questioned how four officers, clad in Kevlar vests, carrying guns and pepper spray and trained in self-defence, could fear a lone man with a stapler. Clearly, if the officers’ actions were in keeping with RCMP policy at the time, then the policy permitted the Tasering of suspects upon even the slightest provocation. Worse, Millington Tasered Dziekanski a total of five times, even after Dziekanski had fallen to the ground and after the officers had applied pressure to his back. Now it’s awfully hard to understand how the officers could still have been frightened of Dziekanski, but that’s still not the worst of it. No, the worst thing is that if the videotape didn’t exist, one would have to rely on Millington’s notes about the incident, notes that Millington was forced to repeatedly admit were wrong. In fact, confronted by videotape evidence about the number of times Dziekanski was Tasered, Millington had to confess that one would get a “distorted view” of the incident by reading his notes. This is a devastating admission because, in most cases of Tasering, the officer’s testimony is all we have to rely on. And police forces have repeatedly defended their use of Tasers, and have even taken shots at critics — witness the recent press conference held by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the Canadian Police Association, where representatives questioned the fitness of those who criticize Taser use. Given that the police must have the trust and respect of the public if they are to function adequately, this is an attitude that must change, particularly in light of the evidence from the Braidwood inquiry. That means that police forces across the country must be open to reconsidering their Taser policies in the face of honest concern — the RCMP’s recent modest changes to its policy are good first steps, but only first steps — and must be willing to admit that they made mistakes. And not just when they’re called before a commission of inquiry. http://www.vancouversun.com/RCMP+reputation+takes+beating+Braidwood+inquiry/1355351/story.html

Let me talk about the fact so many cops too now are alcoholics or drug users, ( likley about 50 percent) and all alcoholics do now need to be fired.. dismissed from their jobs immediately too.

The  continuation  from Dziekanski’s RCMP Murder claims One  more dead Victim..,  Vancouver Sun October 28, 2008 a motorcyclist who was killed in Delta on Saturday night and the off-duty RCMP officer whose vehicle collided with him. Orion Hutchinson, of Tsawwassen, was riding his bike westbound along Sixth Avenue on Saturday night when he was struck at the Gilchrist intersection by an eastbound Jeep. The 21-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer faces charges for blowing over .08 in a breathalyzer test and impaired driving causing death. He was released on a promise to appear Jan. 15. Next the RCMP revealed the Mountie was also involved in the Oct. 14, 2007 fracas at the airport in which the 40-year-old Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski  was Tasered at least twice and died being subdued by the RCMP officers. Since Dziekanski’s death, this Mountie became a member of an integrated team involved in organizing security for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. He now is suspended with pay.
 
HARPER.RCMP

“Unlike you or I in a similar situation, though, this alleged drunken killer isn’t having his name splashed all over the papers. The Mounties and Delta Police, who are investigating the weekend fatality, claim the cop hasn’t actually been “charged” yet, so they’re protecting his privacy until he appears in court. What a thoughtful thing to do. I can’t believe these two police agencies have the audacity to pull a stunt like this – especially the RCMP. Doesn’t the force realize the country has lost faith in it and that transparency, not secrecy is needed to rebuild the trust we once had in this national institution? Most people I talk to remain absolutely livid about what happened to Dziekanski, and they’re astounded the RCMP seems to be thumbing their nose at the public’s concerns.  The force has been dithering for more than a year over providing Crown counsel with enough relevant information to make a decision about whether or not to charge the four Mounties involved in Dziekanski’s death. As a result, his family has been denied closure and the public denied important answers to pressing questions about what happened at YVR  and why. At the same time, the four officers involved have had a horrible cloud over their heads and their careers, and the force has done them no favour by procrastinating. ”   http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=4a61df4b-d85b-4380-a0f0-562a5f15b4ed

It’s time to  to address the concerns, disgust  of the public  and to prosecute any and all OF the bad RCMP officers, even for MURDER, drunk driving.. never mind the double standards, no cop is above the law, above justice.

 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..

“Tiny number of police officers part of large drinking and driving problem   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..

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.
     
Complaint #1
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..

Complaint #2
About Politics- Political, corruptions, inducements, Christians, Alcoholics
 
The supposed 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!
 
so too often even a professing Christian Canadian Prime Minister buys alcohol for others to elicit support. Will they also give out playboy too now?
 
Here is something I recently read in the newspapers news that was hilarious, even  on the net, an 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  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.
 
It is difficult to understand the 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.
 
Now, here  the other laws On political abuse:
 
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!
  
Now about another important issue too
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 occassionally 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?

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. Do see the note below

The internet itself is the most powerful weapon, for the pen is mightier than the sword..   free sites such as http://www.wordpress.com   which is tied to the effective Google search engine..   http://www.blogger.com/ and  http://tripod.com/

Tasered man’s mother threatens legal action after delay in inquiry

Globe and Mail – VANCOUVER — Robert Dziekanski’s mother, frustrated at delays in an inquest into the death of her son after he was tasered last year, is considering legal action against the Police, RCMP Mounties who used the device and others linked to the matter, her lawyer says.

and what the RCMP still have no arrested any of those murderers? alcoholic too now.. Hey Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Security Minister the useless election is over , what is your excuse for your poor supervision of the RCMP still?

People with anxiety disorders are at much greater risk of developing high blood pressure, or hypertension.

More than 60 per cent of those who cast ballots in the last election did not support the Harper government. If you count in all those who did not participate out of choice or indifference then you likely have a much larger cohort of Canadians who are unhappy with the Conservatives still and I can see why often too.

It’s been over nine months since Robert Dziekanski lost his life at Vancouver’s International Airport, killed, murdered by the RCMP and now, he’s finally been laid to rest in his Polish hometown. Taser victim Robert Dziekanski laid to rest in Poland The Province Airport Taser victim laid to rest in native Poland     No one was yet been convicted for this crime too. Why?Unacceptable!

Those heading up our national police force must be so glad people have other things on their minds these days. Otherwise, Canadians might be howling about the Mounties’ latest antics and demanding our political leaders hold them accountable. Because, as we know, our elected officials refuse to utter the least critical word about the RCMP unless there is public pressure or they fear electoral ramifications.”  GARY MASON gmason@globeandmail.com

‘Keep them out!’ Mounties stop media from asking Tory questions
OTTAWA — It’s a blurry, democratically dangerous no-man’s-land that governments and RCMP spokespeople do not like to publicly explore. The line between legitimate RCMP security duties and the media management imperatives of a politically sensitive Prime Minister’s Office appeared to be scuffed once again this week on the election trail. Mounties protecting Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a campaign event in Surrey, B.C., were ordered Tuesday evening to stop reporters from approaching a high-profile Tory candidate. “Keep them out,” Harper aide Ray Novak shouted at the RCMP security detail as journalists approached Dona Cadman. CTV’s Rosemary Thompson was literally yanked aside by one Mountie as she approached the retreating group – which did not include the prime minister.Cadman, a Conservative candidate, is famous for sparking bribery allegations against her party by telling a journalist last year that her dying husband, former Reform and Independent MP Chuck Cadman, claimed to have been offered a million-dollar insurance policy to change his vote in Parliament. It’s an unresolved storyline the Conservatives, understandably, don’t want pursued during an election campaign. Cadman, who has dodged questions from the national media before in the campaign, told a local community newspaper Wednesday she’s concentrating on her own back yard. “We’re talking to the local media, which is much more important than going national or regional,” she said. The incident followed an earlier episode in the campaign’s first week when the RCMP was employed to thwart a CTV camera crew in St. Eustache, Que., on the day the Tories suspended campaign spokesman Ryan Sparrow. “I want that camera out of there,” Harper spokeswoman Carolyn Stewart Olsen told a Mountie, who somewhat apologetically obliged. But is it within the RCMP’s mandate to stop the media from doing its job?Several officers matter-of-factly said they were acting on orders from the PMO – although the official RCMP line, delivered after the incident became a major media story, was that hotel management sought the eviction. Many on Parliament Hill believe the PMO’s use of RCMP security to thwart reporters has increased under a Harper government that is obsessed with communications control. Stories abound, for instance, of security officers stopping camera cut-away shots from non-PMO-approved positions. But the most infamous case of RCMP deploying its resources for essentially communications reasons came under the watch of former Liberal prime minister Jean Chretien at the 1997 APEC summit in Vancouver. An inquiry into the pepper-spraying of protesters concluded that the Mounties had “succumbed to government influence and intrusion in an area where such influence and intrusion were inappropriate.” Testimony at the inquiry suggested government officials were consumed with the poor optics of large demonstrations. “By whatever educational or other communications means available, the RCMP must instill in its officers … that they are to brook no intrusion or interference whatever from government officials,” inquiry commissioner Ted Hughes concluded. It would appear to be an inquiry forgotten not just by the Mounties and current government, but by the Liberals in opposition.
 
The Liberal campaign war-room issued a news release Wednesday decrying Tory heavy-handedness. “The job of the RCMP is not to prevent the Conservative party from being embarrassed,” said the Liberal party release. “They are there to protect the prime minister against genuine physical threats and they should never be used as a political tool.” http://canadianpress.google.com/article/ALeqM5g6YesTXAYfsanGLSDxXgDxHF_vWw
 
We already know what a liar, dictator, control freaks the PM and the RCMP are too is..

More crap from the Alberta Police too..Since January, RCMP and provincial sheriffs have issued more than 2,000 speeding tickets to people driving on Highway 63, including 363 tickets over the weekend. Political and labour leaders have been lobbying the Alberta government for years to twin the highway between Edmonton and the Fort McMurray area. While some work is underway, most of the money is being spent on highway work north of the oilsands capital. Bellows said the entire highway would be safe if motorists just obeyed the speed limit. “We are frustrated,” he said. “Just slow down and relax. You will get there safe.” Meanwhile, leadfoot drivers are also a problem on highways through Banff National Park.  RCMP report that officers issued 115 speeding tickets over the weekend between Lake Louise and the Jasper National Park Boundary. In some cases drivers along Highway 93 were clocked going more than 60 km over the posted speed limit. ( Revenue generating ) Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife. ( and how often does that occur?) RCMP in the Peace River area said even when police warn motorists about speed traps some drivers continue to drive faster than the posted limit. ..RCMP like to give speed tickets when you are leaving the park, not entering it too.. and I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot in Canmore ten years apart too… and the second time I went to court and rightfully fought the dirty RCMP too.

In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians  really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own

” official statistics showed that only five per cent of crashes are caused by drivers breaking the speed limit. Drivers who let their attention wander cause more than six times as many accidents.” Driver error accounted for 66 per cent of accidents.. and add the road rage, impaired, drunk drivers, bad poorly maintained vehicles to that too .. Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.

Meanwhile the Conservative controlled Swindon Council has decided that it will no longer make it’s contribution towards the cost of speed cameras in Wiltshire, preferring instead to plough it’s £400,000 into real road safety measures. “Isn’t it better to have a road that is designed to be safe from the start, rather than sticking a camera there to catch people who may or may not be driving dangerously? We treat road safety very, very seriously but we pay about £400,000 a year to the road safety partnership – money which goes straight into the Government’s pockets.Almost half of motorists do not think speed cameras improve road safety according to new survey results from whatcar.com.For fatal accidents the most frequently reported contributory factor was loss of control, which was involved in 35 per cent of road deaths. Failure to look properly was the most frequently reported contributory factor and was involved in 32 per cent of all injury accidents. Five of the six most frequently reported contributory factors were some kind of driver or rider error or reaction.

The money hungry Conservatives in Alberta, the Calgary and the Edmonton Police forces  and the Liberals in Ontario they can all learn from this

A study of the figures in the British Medical Journal showed a  gap between police and hospital data  showed a wide divergence in these figures   said one of the authors of the article, Mike Gill, professor of public health at Surrey University. The Police are known  to lie, and  they try to please their political bosses , to get a raise by generating revenue from traffic tickets.

The survey of the Canadian vital statistics database, made up of information from death certificates, shows that 97,964 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents during the past quarter-century. However, the annual number of deaths dropped 52 per cent to 2,875 in 2004 from 5,933 in 1979.Nearly three-quarters of those killed in these accidents were male, and motorists at either end of the age spectrum had higher-than-average death rates.Pedestrians accounted for 12 per cent of motor vehicle deaths, followed by motorcyclists and drivers of all-terrain and other off-road vehicles.

Elderly pedestrians were also found to be more than three times likelier than the general population to be killed in motor vehicle accidents. The study does not explain why.

Rural roads proved particularly treacherous for drivers. Sixty-two per cent of fatal collisions in 2004 took place in rural areas.

Yukon had the highest death rate at 16.4 deaths per 100,000 people. Newfoundland and Labrador and Ontario were the only two provinces and territories reporting a death rate lower than the national average of nine for every 100,000 people.

The study notes that while death rates have fallen, the ubiquitous use of cell phones and BlackBerrys while driving pose a danger to drivers.

The important issue of our personal health..

 
 
 
The important issue of our personal health..   http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/
 
With the comfort we receive we tend to comfort other… but not always???
 
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

 
The important issue of our heart health too.. I firstly still do prefer to use the analytical, scientific, engineering study approach, being a university graduate, in engineering especially.. having been employed as a professional too. 
 
Now I know that many of us will have cancer, diabetes, heart problems and at last 50 percent of that will be for sure food related, meaning we are a product of what we all do eat.
 
 
Following my  heart attacks, heart failures, diabetes, next  I have regularly for the last 15 years contacted my many medical experts, and asked them appropriate questions. Such questions as to why I became sick, when the false traditional answer of me smoking or dinking, does , did not apply for I have been an abstainer all of my life, abstained from smoking, alcohol, bad drugs, or whatever..  and their answers like bad food, unresolved stress, dental- teeth issues. lack of exercise being more appropriate too.
 
Of  significance to note that while  I changed my eating habits to reduce my  glucose sugar levels and bad Cholesterols following many dietician’s advice at the Hospitals
 
– My first shock was how regularly, undeniably  the diabetes meters were wrong, much too often by 30  to 300 percent
 
– My first shock was how regularly, undeniably  the new change of eating habits was not always a positive venture, but rather even a negative venture, where to the Doctor next seriously told me to go back my old eating habits even those I had at home with may parents till left home at the age of 25 when I got married.. and next started to get sick..
 
 
so our past original cultural food, the food we are used to eat at home, and the deviation  plays a significant part in the possible  sickness of ours now too when we start eating the new foods.. why?
 
 
Now also unacceptably we all next sadly we tend to find out good good the medial system is in reality when we really need it. much too late now too. why too?
 
The still unacceptable  waiting in the local emergency ward, doctor’s office
   
 
The other day AT THE LaSalle ANGRIGNON what should have taken 15 minutes a piece for 5 OR ABOUT 1.5 HOURS , RATHER  it took 3 hours TOGETHER  firstly and it took 2 nurses, one doctor, and 1.5 receptionists to do it..
   
Not because  I want to but because I have a need to do so, I have to spend a lot of time, hours often in hospitals, emergency wards, doctors office, so I can sit and observe what I have noticed the last many years.. too often  in too many places still too we have the big  or small hospitals, with plenty of workers, loads of  walking the halls, yes walking the halls often.. non supervised hospital employees not doing their jobs, not  at their job spots, desks  but them walking from one office to another talking to their friends.. they are not very well supervised..
  
 
YES  TOO MANY OF OUR CIVIL AN PUBLIC SERVANTS, OUR EMPLOYEES STILL WANTING TO BE PAID FOR NOT DOING TOO MUCH, FOR THEIR NOT DOING ANYTHING, FOR THEIR NOT DOING THEIR JOBS PROPERLY
  
THE VERY SAD THING IS I CAN often SEE THE VERY SAME THING IN MUNICIPAL CITY HALLS.. empty desks and chairs because they employees is visiting a colleagues in another department, walking the halls, taking a coffee, smoke break..
  
Now in the real world they all would have been fired long time ago for doing this, so why do we allow any of the civil, public servants, medical personnel do it still too?
  
 
 
The still unacceptable  waiting in the local emergency ward..
   
 
Isn’t it nice that some things do not change, they are so dependable, such as the inefficient usage of the local Hospital facilities, and medical personnel , staff as well/ Wrong! Some things are never acceptable.
 
I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIT FOR  A FEW HOURS WITH MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR AT THE LOCAL EMERGENCY WARD IN THE LASALLE ANGRIGNON-MONTREAL HOSPITAL, AGAIN.
 
So I had to hear all the complaining firsthand from the sick patients about the poor services again too. If the Health Minister was not such a pretender, coward too, now  he would try that himself. And learn a few things. Such as having only one medical  doctor on duty is guarantee way to insure major unacceptable slow down in the emergency department. On top of that as I know first hand and often, the quality of services you get THERE TOO depends on the quality of the doctor himself, and half of them, the clearly really poor ones should be employed for a start elsewhere, and have half of their salary cut as well next rightfully too.
 
Now from years of experience I do also next a Hospital tour. I walk around the hospitals and observe how many hospital employees I can see talking in a group, or just floor walking, and  the medical personnel not at their desks, offices, and I had now clearly observed firstly that this hospital was not even being utilized to a 50 percent capacity, never mind now 75 percent. Clearly bad hospital mangers are responsible for this and there is a significant room for improvement. Being nice to even one bad person is still a major waste of time, and most Hospital managers, employees REALLY STILL do not care at all about the patient’s good welfare, sickness, problems, BUT ONLY THEIR OWN GOOD WELFARE, for  all they staff care about is keeping their own jobs,  getting a raise, promotion and doing the minimum amount of work possible too, because only the fear of firing can cause any hospital employee to do a better job.. So start by firing the bad Hospital managers. Bad School mangers, etc.. Health and education  Ministers firstly as well.
 
Now rightfully all of you fix the problem  and immediately too.
AND SADLY MANY TIMES BEFORE IN THE LAST 2 DECADES I have written this  to you before.. that all this too is still too common
 
Diabetes – Heart Health Oct 28, ’08 9:12 AM
by just for everyone
The INTERHEART study, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, shows that the risk of heart attack crosses geographic boundaries and correlates strongly to the so-called Western diet that favors salty snacks and fried foods, and to a lesser extent, meat. The risk, spread over five continents, is 30% higher for those who eat a Western diet, the study shows, than for those who adhere to a “prudent diet,” or one rich in fruits and vegetables. An Oriental diet, which is high in tofu and other soy products, doesn’t seem to lower or raise heart attack risk overall, according to the study. Researchers out of McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, examined dietary trends among more than 16,000 participants in 52 countries who were recruited between 1999 and 2003. One-third of the participants, or 5,761 people, were interviewed after having a single heart attack; the remaining 10,646 had no known heart disease, including angina, and did not suffer from diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol. The mean age of participants was between 53 and 57 years old. The study categorized eating patterns as Western, Oriental, and prudent. Participants answered written questions and were interviewed by medical personnel about their consumption of 19 food categories, including leafy greens, pickled foods, dairy products, and desserts. All answers were scored according to dietary risk. The study accounted for other risk factors like smoking, body mass index, age, physical activity, sex, and geographical region in assessing overall heart attack risk. It did not track long-term changes in regional eating habits and their link with health problems. Researchers concluded that the higher the regular intake of fried and salty foods, the higher the risk of heart attack regardless of which region of the world one resides in; prudent dietary habits carried the lowest risk. An Oriental diet seemed to be protective against heart attack in some regions of the world, but was not the best hedge overall, perhaps because of the high salt content of soy and other sauces common in the dining choices.  “The objective of this study was to understand the modifiable risk factors of heart attacks at a global level,” says Salim Yusuf, DPhil, the study’s senior author. “This study indicates that the same relationships that are observed in Western countries exist in different regions of the world.” Yusuf is a professor of medicine at McMaster University and is director of the Population Health Research Institute at Hamilton Health Sciences in Ontario, Canada. The study acknowledges that serving sizes and preparation technique (the type of fat used in cooking, for example) could play a role in increasing heart attack risk in participants adhering to a Western diet. http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20081020/western-diet-is-a-global-heart-risk
Oct. 27, 2008 — A review of 40 clinical drug trials failed to produce reliable conclusions about the effects of oral diabetes medicines on cardiovascular health, despite controversy over the drug Avandia. However, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health did find that metformin seemed to be associated with a decrease in heart disease and heart-related deaths Despite a finding that the drug trials, most of them short-term, were not comprehensive enough to yield the best data, researchers point to metformin as a drug that is “moderately protective” and Avandia as “possibly harmful.” The earlier analysis of the effect of diabetes drugs on cardiovascular health, reported in TheNew England Journal of Medicine in 2007, showed that Avandia, which works well to reduce blood sugar, was associated with a higher risk of heart attack. However, researchers in that case also acknowledged that their conclusions were limited by a lack of access to original clinical data. http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20081027/do-diabetes-drugs-affect-heart-health
— It may be possible for people with type 2 diabetes to reverse a heart threat without surgery, a new study shows. The study included 358 people with type 2 diabetes who took stress tests to check their heart’s health. The stress tests showed that a fifth of the patients had silent myocardial ischemia. Translation: Those patients had no heart disease symptoms, but their heart muscle didn’t get enough oxygen during the stress test. Heart muscle needs oxygen, which it gets from blood. Blood flow to the heart muscle suffers if the coronary arteries narrow. Ischemia (and possibly a heart attack) can be the result. The patients and their doctors were free to pick any ischemia treatment. None of the patients got surgery, but they tended to start taking at least one of the following medications:
Aspirin
Statin drugs, which lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
ACE inhibitors, which lower blood pressure
Three years after their initial stress test, the patients repeated the stress test. The researchers expected that the patients’ ischemia would have worsened. But they were wrong. Of the 71 patients who had ischemia at the study’s start, 56 patients (79%) no longer had ischemia three years later. That finding was “striking and unexpected,” write Yale University’s Frans Wackers, MD, and colleagues. The researchers aren’t sure that the medications reversed ischemia. For instance, the study doesn’t show whether the patients also got serious about their diet and exercise after learning they had silent cardiac ischemia, or which medications helped most. The surprising results deserve further research, Wackers and colleagues conclude.

Potassium and Your Heart

Potassium is a simple mineral with a crucial job: helping your heart beat. A hundred thousand times a day, potassium helps trigger your heart’s squeeze of blood through your body. If you have high blood pressure, heart failure, or heart rhythm problems, getting enough potassium is especially important. And although potassium and cholesterol aren’t directly related, eating a potassium-rich diet just might lower your cholesterol, too.

Potassium: Abundant and invisible

Potassium exists in abundance in soil and seawater. A healthy amount of potassium is essential to all plant and animal life. A critical electrolyte, potassium allows our muscles to move, our nerves to fire and our kidneys to filter blood. The right balance of potassium literally allows the heart to beat. Most people get plenty of potassium just by eating a normal American diet. The main source of potassium in our food is fruits and vegetables. Dairy products, whole grains, meat, and fish also provide potassium.

Excellent sources of potassium include:

  • potatoes
  • tomatoes
  • avocados
  • fresh fruits (bananas, oranges, and strawberries)
  • orange juice
  • dried fruits (raisins, apricots, prunes, and dates)
  • spinach
  • beans and peas

Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is the best way to get enough potassium. You’ll also get the other benefits of a high fruits-and-veggies diet. Those include:

  • reduction of heart disease risk
  • lower cancer risk
  • lower risk for obesity

Potassium and your heart

In healthy amounts, potassium is a heart-friendly mineral. Potassium doesn’t treat or prevent heart disease. Numerous studies show, though, that getting enough potassium has heart-healthy benefits in several important ways.

Potassium and high blood pressure

In one major study of people with high blood pressure, taking potassium supplements reduced systolic blood pressure (the top number) by about 8 points. But you don’t have to pop potassium pills to get the heart-healthy benefits. A diet high in fruits and vegetables (good sources of potassium) and fat-free or low-fat dairy foods can help lower systolic blood pressure by more than 10 points in people with hypertension.

Potassium and high cholesterol

A direct link between potassium and cholesterol hasn’t been established. But it’s interesting that many diets proven to lower cholesterol are also high in potassium. If you have abnormal cholesterol levels, you’re at higher than average risk for heart disease. The same goes for anyone with any of the other risk factors for atherosclerosis:

  • smoking
  • high blood pressure
  • age over 55 for men or 65 for women
  • lack of exercise
  • obesity

Taking potassium isn’t known to reduce the risk of heart attacks. But by making sure you’re taking in enough potassium, you’ll probably end up eating more fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet — high in fruits and veggies and low in saturated fat and cholesterol — can help cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease

Potassium and abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)

For people with abnormal heart rhythms, potassium may be even more important. Potassium is hiding inside every heartbeat. Each heart muscle needs just the right potassium balance in order to contract in a coordinated fashion.

People who’ve had abnormal heart rhythms — arrhythmias or dysrhythmias — are at risk for an uncoordinated heart rhythm. Some abnormal heart rhythms include:

  • atrial fibrillation
  • atrial flutter
  • ventricular tachycardia
  • ventricular fibrillation
  • supraventricular tachycardia
  • Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome

People with a history of arrhythmias should see a doctor on a regular basis. A periodic potassium check might be part of your routine doctor’s visits.

Potassium and heart failure

For many people with heart failure (also called congestive heart failure), getting enough potassium is especially important. Some diuretics — water pills — for heart failure can cause you to lose potassium in the urine. Potassium supplements or a potassium-rich diet can put it back. Ask your doctor before starting a potassium supplement on your own because it may not be necessary.

Potassium: How much?

When it comes to potassium, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Healthy people shouldn’t have any problems from eating a high-potassium diet or taking potassium supplements as directed. But people with kidney problems or certain other conditions such as the following need to be cautious about potassium intake:

  • acute renal failure
  • chronic kidney disease or dialysis dependence
  • use of medications that increase potassium levels, including spironolactone (Aldactone), triamterene, or trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim)

How much potassium should you be eating? The easiest thing to do is to increase the amount of high-potassium fruits and vegetables in your diet. You’ll be getting plenty of potassium — with no calculator required.

If you really feel like counting, the USDA recommends 4,700 milligrams of potassium per day. You can find the potassium content in foods on their package labels or from the USDA Web site: http://www.nal.usda.gov.

US States with the highest diabetes prevalence in the analysis also have the highest levels of blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk, cancer risk, and none of this surprising since diabetes is   often related to the type of food they eat too.. and poorer people tend to eat junkier foods..   U.S. scientists also say they’ve found that in human breast cancer cell tumors in mice, a diabetes drug worked better than chemotherapy in prolonging remission. It is interesting that diabetes medicine already has also been found to help 30 percent of heart patients get better too. The drug, metformin, appears to selectively kill cancer stem cells in culture dishes and in mice. Health Ministers and Health Canada should seriously be looking into this too
 

 

Unfortunately it seems we still only get good, technical, medical advice after it is too late, the damage is done, but better late than never too? 
  
Once your transmission on your car is broken you can forget driving it like before. And it is often too late to do exercise to try to fix the damaged heart too.. only the valid surgery and medication  can basically help you.

Canada’s Stephen Harper the pretender, IMPOSTER

  

pirates-18

Stephen Harper promised and legislated fixed election dates, as we have now in Ontario, and he broke that promise because he smelled a political opportunity
 
 
Few people in Quebec expect any Conservative win, and when a Conservative representative came to my home door before the Federal  Election he was totally unprepared, unrealistically ignorant of the reality of how much his Conservative party was really disliked in Quebec, by many, seniors, and  Anglophones as well. Even I knew all that and so being dumbfounded I really wanted to know how Harper be so totally ignorant of that reality, missed out on all this as a supposed great leader too.. and what many other things  can he Harper still not actually see, realize  to be able to lead, govern effectively? and why? Harper lost the election in my riding next..
  
Harper gears up to build new cabinet Canada.com, Canada – 22 Oct 2008 OTTAWA – Prime Minister Stephen Harper has hunkered down with his top advisers to decide who will form his government’s new cabinet, and Conservative”
 
… and he  will have no one to represent the 2 biggest cities in Canada, Toronto and Montreal.. yes the same cities who many times have more voters than the whole SELF CENTERED, SELFISH province of Alberta!
 
 CLEARLY Power hungry, self centered Conservative PM Stephen Harper again was failed again  to elect one Conservative Member for the whole island  of Montreal too  because the CITIZENS mostly do not believe he HARPER can, does, will look after their best interest as well.
 
THAT HAS BEEN THE REALITY A MUCH TOO LONG TIME TOO.

And what about the other Alberta  liar, ostrich, spin doctor .. Tory message resonated with new Canadians: Kenney,..  “We have broken the virtual Liberal monopoly on the support of new Canadians in cultural communities,” is a blatant lie still too in light of the party coming up predictably dry in the Montreal area.The Christian even  Conservatives lie like the other parties they said they were going to be different oo.

Harper did nothing for Quebec anglos
The Gazette (Montreal), Canada –  What exactly has Stephen Harper done for us, the English-speaking community in Quebec? Are we part of the “Québécois nation” that he so magnanimously ..

But Harper helps his own again…

Liberal Ujjal Dosanjh is still the MP for Vancouver South after a judicial recount showed he had a 22-vote lead over his opponent, Wai Young.  However, Young issued a news release that sounded pretty darn cheerful. “This voting result in Vancouver South sends a clear message that Vancouver wants a fresh voice, good government, and strong leadership in Ottawa,” Young said in the news release. “I am pleased that through the hard work of my campaign team, we were able to give voters in Vancouver South a strong choice to be their voice in Ottawa.”  The Conservatives lost by approximately 9,000 votes in Vancouver South in 2006. “Today, I am humbled by the confidence given to me by over 16,000 voters who voted for me, and I am thrilled with the results of the recount today,” Young said in her news release.  If Young is thrilled with the results, perhaps it’s because she’ll be free to continue her work as a consultant to the Stephen Harper government.  Her small business, Wai Young & Associates, collected $578,590 in grants and contributions from Citizenship and Immigration Canada in the second quarter of 2008. Unacceptable.

Dear Mr. Harper,

As a child of energy sector workers who moved to Calgary from the Maritimes, a combination of indoctrination, ideology and pragmatism has molded me over time into a Conservative Party supporter. I’m not a fan of your social policies, but as my father says, “social issues come and go, the market is what’s important.” Voters seem to agree with him, as all eight Calgary seats– and 27 of 28 in Alberta ­– went Conservative in the election.

For the third straight election, your Tories failed to make a major breakthrough into eastern Canada. For the fifth straight election, Calgary West MP Rob Anders retained his riding’s seat. I’m not sure these events are unrelated.

Anders was first elected to office in 1997, inheriting your Reform Party nomination and then your seat in Parliament. Since then, he’s come under fire for comments regarding Nelson Mandela in 2001 and more recently for comparing the Chinese government’s treatment of Falun Gong practitioners to Nazi Germany’s of the Jews– the accuracy of the comparison notwithstanding, the language was a bit harsh. Even with years of media scrutiny and public outcry over his conduct, Anders has consistently been re-elected– typically with more than half the vote and the support of over 30,000 voters.

When learning that I live in Calgary-West and vote Conservative, friends of mine often ask me if I hate Mandela, since I support someone who so infamously opposed giving him honourary Canadian citizenship. To extend that argument, does anyone really believe that 30,000 people in one of the richest and most educated ridings in Canada hate Mandela? Of course not, but they support the Conservative Party. Similarly, voters in Calgary-Centre don’t support Lee Richardson because of his views on the source of crime, nor do they support Jim Prentice in Calgary Centre-North because of his initially-draconian Bill C-61. They grit their teeth and support these MPs because their party’s platform best represents their interests.

Even so, the ousting of former Edmonton-Strathcona MP Rahim Jaffer– famous for a 2001 incident where an aide impersonated him on a radio show– shows voters won’t blindly support a party forever. Locally, the proportion of the popular vote for Anders, Prentice and Richardson were markedly lower than their neighbours– the trio gained, on average, 56 per cent of the vote while Diane Ablonczy netted 69.6 and Jason Kenney 73.8 per cent. Only newcomer Devinder Shory got a smaller proportion while still winning a Calgary riding.

The difference, of course, is perception. The four Tories that didn’t win in landslides were unknown quantities– Shory for his lack of experience, the other three for their sometimes outlandish conduct in spite of their wealth of experience. Voters in the rest of Canada can’t help but look at the heart of Conservative country and see how the party’s base is being treated– represented by the Anders and Richardsons of the party– and wonder if that’s how they’ll be represented if they vote for them.

It’s no secret that Calgary’s been the heart of Conservative support for a long time. Calgary-West MP Richard Bennett, best known as Viscount Bennett, was the 11th Prime Minister of Canada, Calgary West MLA Peter Lougheed was Alberta’s premier and voters in the area turned against popular Ward 6 alderman– now mayor– Dave Bronconnier in the 1997 federal race because he ran as a Liberal. It’s important, though, to learn from the lessons of the past.

The Roman Empire fell into decline, in part, because its centre was neglected and slid into disarray. If you wish to stay Prime Minister for a while to come, please do your best to address how the constituents of Calgary ridings are represented. Otherwise, Rahim Jaffer may be the first of many Conservative MPs to fall. http://gauntlet.ucalgary.ca/story/12938

 

  ” I hope other Quebec anglophones, no matter who they voted for in the federal election, are as fed-up as I am with all the Quebec-bashing by Conservative supporters in the rest of Canada. Because the Conservatives didn’t get the majority they wanted, they blame Quebec. What exactly has Stephen Harper done for us, the English-speaking community in Quebec? Are we part of the “Québécois nation” that he so magnanimously declared? Not according to some, apparently. Then, are we still part of the Canadian nation – or aren’t we? It makes one wonder: Do some people in the rest of Canada even know we are here? Perhaps they assume that we had all left. What about the rest of us, a lot of whom were born here, who don’t want to leave because Quebec is our home, or, perhaps more importantly, those of us who couldn’t afford to leave even if we wanted to? Perhaps we’ve just become “collateral damage” in the latest skirmish between Quebec and the rest of Canada. ” Gordon Sutherland

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…
 
Law and order enforcement  starts firstly in the leaders own life. Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of these real bad guys serves as a best deterrent to all too. Free speech and whistle blowers hell to make this happen too and bad guys wrongfully do not like this.. to bad for the bad guys.. and doing nothing about bad guys helps to makes it all worse.. so do something, write to the news editors, elected officials now too even if the bad guys do not like this. I am not only transparently honest, straight forward, and rightfully too,  but I rightfully do still judge any of our leaders. civil and public servants, PROFESSIONALS. managers, executives too  NOW  not only per their past words, promises, acts,  but also by a higher exemplary standard, BEHAVIOR now as well especially when they profess to be Christians, or rather as often in reality so called “Christian alcoholics”, or hypocrites .. which is rather an UNACCEPTABLE oxymoron.

“Most of us seem to have a really bad habit of electing liars, electing the people who tell us what we want to hear, AND MANY OF THEM ARE LIARS WHO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK WE WANT TO HEAR SO THEY CAN BE ELECTED.” https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/let-us-all-stop-electing-liars-or-the-alcoholics/ land any limits on the ability of women to sue for pay equity is a moral absurdity when the cost of living for a women is the same as for a man now too. 

I have written many times, even before the last election that we will continue to have problems with our leaders if we continue to elect liars, and alcoholics. Would you allow a known alcoholic, liar medical surgeon to operate on you if you were seriously ill? Generally certainly not! So why would you then hire  a lying alcoholic for any governmental position? Stephen Harper is a definite unrepentant, undeniable  liar, for now already we have seen the unrepentant liar lie to keep his job even again recently. He has lied, distorted the facts about the Bloq Quebecois as being next a main part of the  proposed coalition government. He has lied that the coalition replacement of him was an undemocratic action now as well when it is clearly legitimate. He has mislead us by saying he has the sole elected mandate to rule when that is not the case as well in a minority government. He Harper has long been rightfully accused of hidden agendas, and even recently has   lied about what his election mandate was, it certainly was not a right to kill all the all of the opposition parties, all of  liberals, Socialists, Communists, or whatever  and it his election mandate now clearly  not a right for him to do what he wants, to do his own thing.  He has now lied about so many other things too. Now I again ask why do we elect and support liars? when nothing Good can really come from a liar still too
 
Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks,  persons, civil and public servants,  politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,
 
Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over.
 
 
Here also is what I know for sure, the older the person is the more extreme, more severe, the more difficult the punishment has  to be on them to cause them to personally to change in their own  negative ways, for they are too set in them now too.

False Quebec bashing over Harper the loser

 “I knew would happen, after the corrupt and scandal-plagued Conservatives failed to get a majority because Quebecers were too smart to fall for Harper’s vote-buying bribes and negative advertising, the embittered cynics trot out the letters bashing Quebecers as selfish separatists. In a letter about the interprovincial bridge proposal, David Hooper whined that “the majority of voters in the riding of Gatineau” supported the Bloc Québécois. That’s odd, considering Bloc MP Richard Nadeau received just 29 per cent of the vote. By no measure is this a majority – in fact, more than 70 per cent (a majority) of Gatineau voters supported federalist parties.Besides, voter turnout in Quebec was 61 per cent, and only 29 per cent of Gatineau voters chose the Bloc. That equals less than 18 per cent of the voting population. Let’s use some common sense here. Just because the election might not have gone the way Mr. Hooper and Mr. Clark wanted is no excuse for Quebec-bashing.”Mark Johnson,Nepean

http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/news/letters/story.html?id=f4127e33-5e4f-4225-a2e3-d68bdfd3e36b

Harper should resign. It is the honourable thing to do. He boxed the party in. They dare not force yet another election, but to avoid one they must compromise with the will of the majority. Harper has given the Liberals time to pick a stronger leader and time to rebuild their war chest. After two minority governments the Conservatives must make changes if they are to win a majority. A new leader is essential. The message from this election is clear. The majority of voters do not want Harper as their prime minister. It is time for him to go.

http://www.orilliapacket.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1258306

Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper who clearly really does not care about the good welfare of all the citizens of Canada next got his redneck conservative supporters distortions of why he had lost the 2008 federal election and , did not get a majority, need to see that Hamper is the one step forward, two steps backward loser rather and not falsely blame Quebec for  any of this

October 22, 2008

Hypocrisy

 
Christian Magazines, Churches, pastors, Newspapers, news media, TV, radio are in the sales, marketing, prostituting  business also.. so they report, print controversial issues and take sides with the majority group often as well.. they also do tend like to lock on the supposed winners, winning topics, and band wagon on them and not in fairness , honesty, and they do avoid the  other less popular, too controversial  issues.
 
I was surprised to firstly note how many Canadian, professing Christian and Christian family values groups openly state their support of evangelical prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper  but they do not mention the fact that he is a liar, tends to abuse others, bully them, to break his own promises, likes to drink alcohol, which are certainly not good family values, or good Christian Values. We can make the same criticism of some of the US politicians and their poor values  now too.
 
Hypocrisy  is what it still is. Baal Kissing as well!
and what do you call it? typical, and more lying, untrustworthy politicians

Prime Minister sets our watchdogs on the press?

 
‘Keep them out!’ Mounties stop media from asking Tory questions   
OTTAWA — It’s a blurry, democratically dangerous no-man’s-land that governments and RCMP spokespeople do not like to publicly explore. The line between legitimate RCMP security duties and the media management imperatives of a politically sensitive Prime Minister’s Office appeared to be scuffed once again this week on the election trail. Mounties protecting Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a campaign event in Surrey, B.C., were ordered Tuesday evening to stop reporters from approaching a high-profile Tory candidate. “Keep them out,” Harper aide Ray Novak shouted at the RCMP security detail as journalists approached Dona Cadman. CTV’s Rosemary Thompson was literally yanked aside by one Mountie as she approached the retreating group – which did not include the prime minister.
 
Cadman, a Conservative candidate, is famous for sparking bribery allegations against her party by telling a journalist last year that her dying husband, former Reform and Independent MP Chuck Cadman, claimed to have been offered a million-dollar insurance policy to change his vote in Parliament. It’s an unresolved storyline the Conservatives, understandably, don’t want pursued during an election campaign. Cadman, who has dodged questions from the national media before in the campaign, told a local community newspaper Wednesday she’s concentrating on her own back yard. “We’re talking to the local media, which is much more important than going national or regional,” she said. The incident followed an earlier episode in the campaign’s first week when the RCMP was employed to thwart a CTV camera crew in St. Eustache, Que., on the day the Tories suspended campaign spokesman Ryan Sparrow. “I want that camera out of there,” Harper spokeswoman Carolyn Stewart Olsen told a Mountie, who somewhat apologetically obliged. But is it within the RCMP’s mandate to stop the media from doing its job?
 
 Several officers matter-of-factly said they were acting on orders from the PMO – although the official RCMP line, delivered after the incident became a major media story, was that hotel management sought the eviction. Many on Parliament Hill believe the PMO’s use of RCMP security to thwart reporters has increased under a Harper government that is obsessed with communications control. Stories abound, for instance, of security officers stopping camera cut-away shots from non-PMO-approved positions. But the most infamous case of RCMP deploying its resources for essentially communications reasons came under the watch of former Liberal prime minister Jean Chretien at the 1997 APEC summit in Vancouver. An inquiry into the pepper-spraying of protesters concluded that the Mounties had “succumbed to government influence and intrusion in an area where such influence and intrusion were inappropriate.” Testimony at the inquiry suggested government officials were consumed with the poor optics of large demonstrations. “By whatever educational or other communications means available, the RCMP must instill in its officers … that they are to brook no intrusion or interference whatever from government officials,” inquiry commissioner Ted Hughes concluded. It would appear to be an inquiry forgotten not just by the Mounties and current government, but by the Liberals in opposition.
 
The Liberal campaign war-room issued a news release Wednesday decrying Tory heavy-handedness. “The job of the RCMP is not to prevent the Conservative party from being embarrassed,” said the Liberal party release. “They are there to protect the prime minister against genuine physical threats and they should never be used as a political tool.” http://canadianpress.google.com/article/ALeqM5g6YesTXAYfsanGLSDxXgDxHF_vWw

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Federal Conservative Party of Canada

naughteiekid
Someone representing the  Conservative Party of Canada came to my home today, note to my home, and said to me he was here to get me to vote for Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. He next had refused to answer any of my questions firstly.  I had asked him if it was true that Stephen Harper gave bottles of wine and wine glasses to the Prime Minister of Australia. I asked him also if he Stephen Harper professes to be an evangelical Christian of the Christian Missionary Alliance Church now too? No answer. I asked him how could a born again professing evangelical like Stephen Harper be giving out alcohol to others when it is clearly a historical, general, accepted biblical fact that fundamental evangelicals are abstainers and do not drink wine, alcohol now? The Canadian federal Conservative Party supporter he lied and said that what I said about Stephen Harper was not true. Stephen Harper was good person. The Conservative party supporter he next started to lecture me as to how and what I there could and could not talk about now to him . I next told him that he was standing on my property falsely lecturing me, dictating to me  as to what I cannot  talk about, what I cannot do even in my own home,  dream on! I asked him directly was  he now also   another despotic dictator like the established fact, behavior of the prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper. He the  clearly red necked Conservative party supporter then turned red with embracement and rudely said he has to leave and immediately departed with his tail between his legs without still  answering one question of mine to him too.  He the Conservative party supporter wants me to support this bad political Conservative party now when I see firsthand how he  even lies, abused me in my own home too? Dream on.
 
3 of my neighbors I had talked with directly today said they would vote for none of the parties for they are all equally bad, even those who had voted Conservative before too.
 
A picture is worth a 1000 words? so what about a movie?
