Cost of power line between Calgary, Edmonton doubles, electrical costs increases

 
 
  
   alberta
 
With all that supposedly extra surplus income as advertised in  Alberta the local citizens were now to live better off than elsewhere, instead of now continually being gouged with extra costs, and the hidden taxes.. the electrical costs now included..  for Alberta really does not have cheap hydro generated electricity but relies mainly on polluting coal fired generating plants..  and what else next? The city of Calgary, Edmonton too,  will be gouging its citizens. No discount on the downtown parking. The Big spenders at City hall need to keep the tax increases up after they spend the kitty, some of it for their useless out of town travelling expenses too.
 
Calgary and Edmonton are the two  main and  largest cities, both nearly the same size too,  in the Province of Alberta, Canada.  There are no other significantly large towns in this province as well. The main economy of Alberta is cattle farming and the oil industry. The provincial government has never been able to diversify the economy. Oil which was first discovered in Alberta in 1902   did not become a significant industry in the province until 1947 Alberta’s  quickly found itself at the centre of the ensuing oil boom and grew when oil prices increased with the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973. The population increased significantly  in the years between 1971 and today. Mainly bcause of the governmental  misleading spins that Alberta was a place to get rich fast, but this is not at all true. Few people got rich in Alberta, many went broke though.  Alberta’s economy is so closely tied to the oil industry that the  subsequent drop in oil prices were cited by industry as reasons for a collapse in the oil industry and consequently the overall Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton  economy.  This is still mainly a one horse economy, province.
 
The rapid population growth associated with the oil boom meant a need to build new houses and roads, and related services.. these were costly undertakings which  explains why the land, homes, taxes are so high even now as well. The cost of living has increased more rapidly than the wage increase  in the last few decades too causing a lot of discomfort, personal stress as well which continues until today. The lack of local industries even presently necessitates most items to be imported from else where adding to the products costs .. Even the electrical energy costs are especially high as electricity has to be manly generated by expensive coal  firing plants. Because of the high costs of living in Alberta has had a real problem in both even attracting, and keeping competent, professional technical support personnel in all areas. Many of the new job  arrivals are not adequately still qualified in fact. This is not the land of paradise it is often falsely made out to be, not at all.. The high costs of living too explains also why the divorce rate, drug abuse, and domestic  violence, road rage is so high too. It will be that way for a few decades next too.
  
 HEY I ONCE HAD WRITTEN A LONG TIME AGO THAT THE TOO OFTEN SELF CENTERED, PROUD PEOPLE OF ALBERTA DO REALLY NEED TO STOP BASHING THE POOR PEOPLE, AND THOSE ON SOCIAL AID, FOR A DAY WILL COME THAT THEY TOO WILL BE NEEDING SOCIAL AID AND THAT DAY HAS COME.. USAGE OF THE ALBERTA FOOD BANK IS UP 20 PERCENT ALONE.
  
The government of Alberta tries to maximize  profit from the energy shortage, electrical included,  in the US, and makes the Albertan citizens pay for it.. since the Albertan government has to sell  energy to the US at the same costs it sells to it’s citizens too, unfortunately this all backfires cause the high costs of electrical electrical energy in Alberta further discourages many new industries from moving into Alberta?
 
“sounds pretty simple, Alberta companies want to export power to the USA but they don’t want to pay to create the power lines needed.  an 8 billion dollar gift sounds pretty nice to me, what ever happened to utility companies? “
 
” These lines ought to be funded by the people that will be receiving the electricity. I hope us Albertans get outraged over being taken advantage of all the time, personally I can see we get taxed too much. Its because of these kinds of projects.
 
” You morons had many opportunities during the last four years while we were swimming in cash as a province to pay for this with our surpluses. Now we are temporally sucking the hind teat economically and it’s “NOW” you want us to pay for it on our monthly bill for the next 40 years. Are you insane? You have squandered our surpluses and our chance to use these surpluses to pay for this.”
 
“De-regulation of Power (Utilities)  Albertans were told de-regulation would bring down the power rates in the future.  Did our Alberta Government tell us lies?,  Ralph Klein certainly did “
 
“I always thought that the fairy tale about the “Golden Goose” was just fantasy – but apparently we ( Albertans) are the golden goose and every company in this country and those from abroad also see us ( consumers) as the golden goose – they keep coming back to us year after year and demanding even more from us – enough is enough – start to find your extra money from within your corporations – start with your over paid CEO’s and their salaries and bonuses- why are we dedicating so much money to an old technology while the rest of the world is using and developing new forms of energy production and distribution.”
 
“Sell the power to the US? Are you kidding? We don’t generate enough power to support our own province right now, we have to buy power to supplement what we generate. This extra power has to come over a single line out of Montana and 1-2 lines out of BC, when we need 2-3x that much. Even moving it around the province is a challenge right now. That being said, there is a way for the transmission and power companies to recoup the cost, rather than having taxpayers cover the bill: charge the power consumers more. In that way, people who use more power pay more, and those who use less pay less (and those who use none don’t have to pay at all). The power consumers won’t pay more? Then I guess we continue to live with brownouts and the occasional blackout because we can’t get the power to where its needed.”
 

THE FACT THE GOVERNMENTS DO NOT ENCOURAGE  HOME AND INDUSTRIAL building improvements to reduce energy use OR SUBSIDIES  for the higher capitilization costs of more solar, wind powered  electricity is that all of this  is most attractive to the rather smallest electricity users and not to the major industrial users, commercial power producers. THUS IT IS THESE LATTER  PEOPLE WHO DEFINATELY DO DESIRE THE NEW ELECTRICAL LINES AND WHO SHOULD PAY FOR IT TOO..

 
It is a fact the Alberta government helped to mislead the false notion that Alberta was A PLACE TO GET RICH, THAT WORKERS AND BUSINESS PERSONS CAN MAKE AN EASY QUICK FAST BUCK THERE, especially since there are no provincial sales. THE HIGH COST OF LIVING STILL MAKES ALBERTA AN UNDESIRABLE PLACE TO GO TO ANYWAYTHE ALBERTA NEWS MEDIA AND THE GOVERNMENTS OF ALBERTA DO NOT LIKE TO DISCLOSE THE REALITY OF THE MANY HIDDEN TAXES, HIDDEN EXTRA COSTS IN ALBERTA. Yes you do not pay any provincial taxes there.. but that is where the economic benefit of living there stops.. the costs of land, homes, apartments, food, ELECTRICTY, maintenace, services, education etc., are much higher than in Quebec for a start but the average salaries in Alberta generally are not any signifcantly higher, OR ADEQUATE TO PAY THE EXTRA COSTS..

May I remind you that Calgary and Edmonton had expanded so fast that they took over all of the suburbs and there is no real estate available outside of the main cities.. and especially no water… and the remaing extremely small Towns like High River , Canmore, Okatoks, have already long been engulfed in the over pricing of the homes too..

Anyway the wise people knew that this day of the Albertan recession was coming, when the oil prices would drop again, for history repeats itself, even like it did in the 80’s in Alberta too.

In spite of the spins PM Stephen Harper is not the only one facing an eviction notice these days.

  “It’s hard to believe, but Alberta, the Wonderland of Canada — with its oil sands, no sales tax and debt-free balance sheet — has pissed away another oil boom.” Albertans are wondering what hit them.Two things: Collapse of world oil prices, and a decade of profligate over-spending by a government that was supposed to be committed to conservative values. It reminds me that conservative parties, be they the PCs or the Conservatives in Canada or the Republicans in the U.S., have been guilty of the most invidious betrayal of their promises. Plus, conservative governments in the U.S. and Canada have wrecked the public treasuries through indiscriminate and unaffordable tax cuts.  Case in point: the Alberta Heritage Fund. When Premier Peter Lougheed set it up in 1976, the idea was to stuff it with 30% of the province’s resource revenues. By 1982 they’d cut that in half and were taking out the profits.  In the past year, not a nickel’s gone into the Heritage Fund. It’s worth about $16 billion now. If the government had kept its original commitment and put in 30% of resource revenues while taking nothing out, the Fund would be worth $164 billion today. More than enough to see Alberta through the deepest of recessions.  Where did the money go? Expenditures, and Taxpayer perks, mainly. At the peak of the boom, Ralph Klein wrote $400 checks for every Albertan, at a time when few really needed them. Government spending has gone up by 9.6% a year over the past three years.   http://wildaboutwriting.com/2009/02/22/blowing-the-bankroll-alberta-style/
 
Calgary only has 60,000 more residents than Edmonton (1,124,163) and it makes a lot of false noise in that fact too cause it wants to attract much needed capital investors for non existing industrial, commercial aspects.. There basically are only 2 large cities in Alberta, Calgary and Alberta, and a handful of smaller towns.. Alberta has some of the biggest liars, spin doctors in Canada for the main cities are desperately seeking more revenues, and capital investors and anyway they can get them now too even by lies, distortions. There is not much industrial, Manufacturing business in Alberta due to the shortage of labor and skilled persons, and high operating costs. People in Calgary and Alberta do often dream of becoming rich , but it is a far away dream when you consider the high costs of living there and the uncertainty of holding onto a job too.
 
 History as usual repeats itself even in Alberta. Predicable, cyclic Bust takes still Alberta by surprise today ? “ There’s a tiny park in downtown Calgary that is a stark reminder of everything that went wrong in Alberta after the boom of the 1980s and seems to be happening all over again. The park is right next to the Bank of Montreal’s 41-storey office tower. It was supposed to be the site of a second tower that was cancelled when the bank realized the boom was over and it wouldn’t need all those offices in Western Canada after all. Twenty years later, the price of oil and gas has nosedived again and major projects are about to be cancelled or capped. Just last week, developers of what is slated to be the tallest building in Western Canada declared that they need $1.1 billion to keep the project going. There is already a square-block hole in the ground and a forest of girders and cranes on-site in the heart of downtown Calgary, but the future home of EnCana Corporation is desperately trying to arrange construction financing in a tight credit market. Building permits on five other large projects are set to expire because of inactivity. In some cases, the city has had to seal empty construction pits because the developers have pulled the plug. You would think that in a city, and a province, that has experienced more than a few booms and busts over the past 80 years some sort of common sense would have evolved about how to thrive over the long term in such an economy. But it seems both the private sector and the government are easily blinded by their wishful thinking: this boom will last forever and the money will keep rolling in, they keep telling themselves and everyone else. But it never does. So in the same week that the city’s largest construction project was revealed to be in trouble, the finance minister and the premier announced more bad news. The provincial treasury’s projected surplus for 2008-2009 dwindled from $8.5 billion to $2 billion because of declining oil and gas prices and will likely dwindle even further. Plans for new roads, schools and hospitals are now on hold. Premier Ed Stelmach also revealed that he is deferring a new royalty regime – which was have to added more than $1.4 billion a year to provincial coffers – because it’s simply the wrong time to increase taxes and risk a further slowdown of the petroleum industry. No doubt he wishes former premier Ralph Klein had increased royalties years ago when the industry was awash in profits. None of this would really matter if the provincial government had actually prepared for the bust during the boom by saving some of its billions of dollars in bounty. But it didn’t. Instead it spent billions on infrastructure when the cost of labour and materials was skyrocketing; at one point it issued $400 cheques to every man, woman and child in Alberta, a $1.4 billion giveaway; and it cut taxes or kept them low. Alberta still has The Heritage Savings Trust Fund established by former premier Peter Lougheed but it is only worth $15.8 billion. Norway, by contrast, has managed to squirrel away $350 billion since 1991. Stephen Harper’s Conservatives have also managed to whittle away billion dollar surpluses. Perhaps they also thought the boom would last forever. Or perhaps all those Alberta Conservatives simply forgot about the famous bumper sticker from the 1980s that read: “Please God, let there be another oil boom. I promise not to piss it away this time.” ” http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/541627

 In an article published Wednesday, the international financing agency’s chief economist says the recession has drained government treasuries to such an extent that “in nearly all countries … higher taxation is inevitable. “All this means that we may not go back to the old growth path, that potential output may be lower than it was before the crisis.” ”   http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/08/19/imf-recession.html
 
So higher taxation is inevitable. watch out especially for more cash crabs by the municipalities too, much much  higher prices for revenue generating speeding, parking tickets and by law violations too.
 
After all all THOSE PEOPLE LIVING HIGH ON THE HOG AT THE CITY HALLS ARE NOT ABOUT TO GIVE UP THEIR EMPIRE BUILDING, LAVISH LIFESTYLES, EXOTIC BENEFITS, MOSTLY UNNECESSARY OUT OFF TOWN TRIPS.. and we have seen this already being carried out in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and now in Montreal.
 
 
 
  
 For decades I too  have rightfully opposed to all  the extravagant, wasteful spending of the city’s , tax payers money by civil, public servants because it is next the programs to the poor people that are cut first when financial problems occur… The continual mismanagement, budget deficit, tax payer money abuses and has there been even any changes in all this really? We all  really still do need still a full  review of the waste, fraud, and abuse that has plagued governmental efforts. What is also needed is a enforced, real program to remove public officials from office that take our money and abuse it, spend it on their own false pet projects while many of our people still are not getting the help that they need.  January 2004 was the start of my recent rash of my written correspondences mainly on the unacceptable  tax payers money abuses, injustices at the federal, provincial municipal levels too, as well, and it all  has specifically initially started because I had strongly, rightfully objected to anyone in the province of BC being kicked of social welfare, even if they are alcoholics, drug users… I still do rightfully and loudly  object to anyone being kicked of social welfare even in BC or elsewhere and this is still never acceptable. They all Civil and public servants, politicians, need to be regularly supervised too. That is why we need and have the auditors, News media, Opposition parties, concerned citizens to do this too.. and it still generally is not enough as we can see. TWO OF MY PAST NEIGHBORS, MANAGERS,  WHO WORKED FOR CITY HALL OPENLY BOASTED TO ME, AND DEMONSTRATED TO ME FOR YEARS THE COMMON CORRUPTION IN THE LOCAL CITY HALL, DONE BY THEM AND MANY OF THEIR COLLEAGUES. This included their unnecessary out of town trips, their taking stuff, computer accessories,  home from the office for their own personal use, boasted of  their lavish expense accounts, of their doing personal work at the office, and much more. Why did they think that me a tax payer would approve any of such wrong doings was their error. I reported their wrong doings rightfully rather. OTHER MANAGERS OF CROWN CORPORATIONS HAD ALSO OFTEN BOASTED TO ME OF THEM DOING SIMILAR THEFTS  AS WELL.. The fish stinks from the head but many cut the tail of first..  Reducing, cutting of the programs to the poor and needy persons for  that seems how the governments wrongfully still do wrongfully  respond to budget cut backs,  deficits, and to the poor and needy people too now, rather than dealing still firstly with the major crooks, tax payer’s money abusers too in the government and elsewhere,  How many people in reality even in the civil, public services governments now  have been arrested all together  for tax evasions and tax payers money abuse now last year? How many? Anyone care to answer the question? And speaking of the related  federal review as well, who are the high spenders last year in the federal government.. who ate at the best restaurants, traveled the most at the tax payers restaurants.. who were the drunks now too..  Politicians, and civil and public servants now included too..  (Luke 6:43 KJV)  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 
 
Even in our governments, history tends to repeat itself, including thefts, waste and mismanagement, deficits, and they tend not to rather get better and why?
 
There are also plenty of places to try to save the tax payer’s money but starting to save the tax payer’s money at the expense of the poor people and their welfare programs is not the best  way to do this, not at all the way to do it!   The governments firstly should though clearly manage better it’s civil and public servants.. and the capital expenditures. Why? Well I do also know from real  experiences that it is also the services to the poor and needy persons, those who can afford it the least, that are wrongfully cut to make up for the past budget mismanagement by Ministers, managers of the civil and public servants too in Canada’s Provinces, Municipalities too. Rather than cutting back on the governmental aid, programs to  the poor and needy persons even next  because of the government’s own unacceptable past mismanagement we all do now too need to really take another continual look at how effective our tax dollars are always all of being used by the civil and public servants, and their managers, politicians now too. Cutting back on the Corporate welfare also is what the government still does also needs to deal with and not cutting firstly the Social welfare. The Corporations got what Billions  in social welfare from the tax payers? and we do not have money for the poor people? or for proper medical care, or for proper Justice, police, consumer protection  too? It never surprises me anymore when the superiors, Managers even  at City hall as well can also still  find money for new furniture, more staff, larger personal expense accounts but cannot find  the money to help the ordinary, poor and needy people during the good and bad times now too. Unacceptable.We all need to care about the unemployed and the poor people, Elected officials now included. It also  seems even  the governments and it’s managers are too often rather still just for sale to the highest bidder… and it doesn’t care who they are involved with or what they are up to or what it looks like as long as they are rewarding themselves or  their friends, and thus they wrongfully and too tend  not too  really look after all of the good ordinary citizens welfare..  this is still never acceptable. They all Civil and public servants, politicians, need to be regularly supervised too. That is why we need and have the auditors, News media, Opposition parties, concerned citizens to do this too.. and it still generally is not enough as we can see. The fish stinks from the head but many cut the tail of first..  That seems how the governments wrongfully does  respond to money and the poor people too now rather than firstly with the major crooks, the real tax abusers too..   
 
“ Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.(Galatians 2:10 KJV)  ” 
Making all of the poor people, social welfare recipients, those who can afford it the least, to pay for the sins of others is an immoral and  criminal act still. 
 
Furthermore here are thee, 3 things I know for sure in Canada the last 35 years
 
– It is not the poor people who have  mismanaged the majority of the tax payer’s money… but they do pay for it the most, those who can afford it the least
 
– if the public and civil servants had better managed the tax payer’s money there still would not  have been likely more money for the poor people cause the rich people would still try to steal it for themselves. I have met even covetous, greedy middle class and rich persons now too.
 
Thirdly  if all persons paid their taxes, and did not commit tax evasions, an ongoing major unacceptable sin that still do needs to be prosecuted there would be plenty of money for the poor people  assuming it could get to them without being stolen, intercepted again.
 
Even in my local evangelical church the pastor is also now was wrongfully  being  paid too an astronomical price for his poor services, his poor neglect of the poor people too, and I rightfully also do not agree with this  and say so as well. Jesus himself and the Apostles did not have a fixed salary nor a high paying one
 
(Isa 10:1 KJV)  Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; 2  To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! 3  And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? 4  Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 
 
(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

“Albertans First” is just another one of those typical bad politicians cons to make people Born in Alberta falsely believe they are being properly looked after, and are better of than the rest of Canada too, all very contrary to the actual reality. It is clearly the politicians and civil and public servants who are firstly looking after themselves mainly here too..

LET US ALL STOP HIRING, ELECTING LIARS OR THE ALCOHOLICS

 
 

Five candidates running in Saskatchewan’s April 4 election have had impaired driving convictions, including three from the Saskatchewan Party and two from the Saskatchewan NDP.

Sask. deputy premier Don McMorris resigns after impaired-driving charge. Impaired driving still number one killer on Sask. roads  “I am very disappointed in his actions. Drinking and driving risks and ruins lives and is completely unacceptable,” said Wall. Premier Brad Wall said   In February, SGI’s annual report on traffic accidents in Saskatchewan showed the total number of collisions involving alcohol in 2014 was the lowest it had been in five years. However, the number of fatal accidents involving alcohol didn’t follow that trend, with 17 more people killed in crashes involving alcohol in 2014 than in 2013.

Newly elected Liberal Member of Parliament comtted  himself to rehab.. and dream on if you think it works.. Rookie Newfoundland  MP Seamus O’Regan back from rehab, 40 days sober: ‘Alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life’. The newly elected  Liberal MP sought treatment for an alcohol problem  said Monday he is “reporting back for duty” in Ottawa. “Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks,” Now why did O’Regan not inform voters of his personal issues before the Oct. 19 vote. And why Trudeau did not require his friend to tackle his addiction prior to becoming a candidate.  There are too many people  in false denial  who are slaves to alcohol or are guilty  of other substance abuse.

OTTAWA — Fisheries Minister Hunter Tootoo has stepped down from cabinet and left the Liberal caucus to deal with addiction issues.Tootoo was a territorial politician for 14 years, and served for a time as speaker of the Nunavut legislative assembly. “Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks,” I was far from my best self.” “Effective immediately, the Honourable Hunter Tootoo has resigned from his position as minister of fisheries, oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard,” Trudeau said in the statement. “He will also be leaving the Liberal caucus.”Tootoo is a cousin of NHL player Jordin Tootoo, who recently authored a book detailing not only his struggles in the NHL, but his continuing battle with alcohol addiction.

A Liberal  alcoholic politician is now just as bad as a New Conservative alcoholic politician firstly.. and lies just as much.. It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/28/pm-stephen-harper-does-drink-alcohol/
IMPAIRED DRIVING (2)
.
Now with the upcoming Canadian election this week I was asked by my neighbors what Political party  would I NOW vote for. Now that still really required some work on my part to find out.
.
Now here’s a basic secret I have learned, how they  the political candidates, and their receptionists now do treat me now is generally how they do also next generally treat the others, and so once again,  as I have often done that before too, I thus had decided to visit firsthand some of the local political candidates, to specially visit their campaign office in our riding.. after all I was honestly trying to determine who  I would vote for.. all I do is say hello, watch and listen as to how they respond, and I do evaluate what they do say too.
.
And many of you all already know that after my last week  run in in my own home with a bad local existing main party candidate representative , who also is just another false spin doctor, and  bad control freak, for certainty now I would not vote for  them or recommend them.
.
So next the first federal political candidate I visited who was the closest one on my journey, and she also now happened to be in, and she welcomed me personally, but within a short while it became very clear to me she only mainly cared about winning over the others, and she only cared about what I could do for her, not what she could do for me or the people in her riding  but now I certainly could not vote thus for her in honesty too. We really do not need another imposter, pretender, figure head in office.
.
So next I visited an independent Candidate, and it next  turns out he was apparently a  formal party reject, there must have been good reason why the leader of that party supposedly did not approve of him as a candidate, even though he had supposedly worked for the same party  for 25 years now. The receptionist said to me that I should wait now till he would be back, very shortly and he would like to talk to me. An hour later she phoned him and he was really too busy to see me , but his sister, one of his main campaign workers had now showed up, and she also was not interested in talking to me, she too made it clear she had no use for me, all she wanted was to win.. a loser not a winner.. so he too was not getting my support.  Incidently I had  next met the same candidate in a local church bazaar sale and he blamed his own secretary next  for being   the cause of him not being able to see me before… I have been seeing his poste nig shot in my whole district, but even the mugh shot was a false one, taken a while back, he looked in reality small, weak and very aged.
.
How come these people do not understand that a personal referral is one the best way to win.. for the costly advertising is very ineffective still.
.
The next Candidate I reviewed she admitted she was only a part timer, she was doing politics part time because she had a main interest in having a financially successful career.. and we do not need that kind of prostitute in office now too.
.
Yes it seems I would really still regret if any of these persons would be elected next. We have had enough political  losers already. It is hard to determine the best, right candidate for me in my area.

An alcoholic clearly is a person who has to, needs to  have two glasses of wine, or two bottles of beer  immediately at least,  like  so many of the other Alcoholic politicians at least about 25 in the  average Parliament? . this is all very interesting in the light that he Barrack Obama tries to maintain undeniably  he is a really good Christian, and he Obama now is  desperately trying to get accepted by the right wing evangelicals, but now  they will never do that when they do even see these pictures.. for sure.. Never!
.
 
Reality! These days it is too hard to tell the difference between secular persons and  the professing Christians . Genuine Born Again Evangelical Christians are total abstainers from smoking, drugs, alcohol, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions, pornography, or rather all personal vices, Impairments Alcoholics now are also the  bad people but so are the drug users. They trend to cost significant expenditures for the taxpayers as well..   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/      http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/06/30/abstainers/
.
The major undeniable  weakness, weakness, discrepancies, shortfall in the soft underbelly of  the personal life of Barrack Obama and even Canada’s prime Minister Stephen Harper is clear, and  is that already   proven  too, that there is a wide discrepancy between what he verbally says he is and  who he really is now and  and what he in fact still next does. Even now starting clearly with his profession of being a real practicing Christian. Barack Obama for continuity he is not a real practicing Christian and he undeniably has violated God laws continually, and there is no excuse for it.. While it is often a thorny issue, discussion in the Christian faith, amongst the protestants and evangelicals whether Christians drinking wine is tolerate now, the Bible in both the old and new testament clearly and undeniably still  says that anyone in a leadership position cannot consume wine, alcohol or get drunk. This is not even subject even to any debate now as well. Both Obama and Bilden do undeniably drink alcohol now.. and what about McCain and Palin now  too?
.
Again ““Dr. Daniel Akin, President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary has written an article in favor of the famous Resolution #5 (Resolution calling for total opposition to alcohol). Alcohol is the number one drug problem among teenagers. (1 Cor. 8:13; 9:19-22; 10:32-33). Because I am an example to others, I will make certain no one ever walks the road of sorrow called alcoholism because they saw me take a drink and assumed, “if it is alright for him it is alright for me.” No, I will choose to set an uncompromising example of abstinence because I love them.  I will seek my joy and filling in the Spirit not in alcohol. I love the Phillips translation of Ephesians 5:18 which reads, “Don’t get your stimulus from wine (for there is always the danger of excessive drinking), but let the Spirit stimulate your souls.” Psalm 4:7-8 adds, “You [O Lord] have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”  There is no record that Jesus drank strong drink,  As a pastor or church leader, would I demand abstinence for  leadership? Absolutely! The principle of Proverbs 31:4-5 is appropriately applied here, “It is not for Kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to take strong drink, lest they drink and forget what has been decreed and pervert the rights of all the afflicted.” “
.
(1 Cor 11:28 KJV)  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30   For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

(Prov 3:33 KJV)  The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough, 

Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration].  19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunkwithwine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Revelation 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunkwith the wine of her fornication.

Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

The Bible’s suggestions on electing rulers.. good managers

(Deu 1:13 KJV) Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
(Deu 1:14 KJV) And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.
(Deu 1:15 KJV) So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.
(Deu 1:16 KJV) And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
(Deu 1:17 KJV) Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
(Deu 1:18 KJV) And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
(1 Tim 3:2 KJV) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
(1 Tim 3:3 KJV) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
(1 Tim 3:4 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(1 Tim 3:5 KJV) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
(1 Tim 3:6 KJV) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
(1 Tim 3:7 KJV) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

.

1 Tim 3:2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation {but} must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect {and} temperate {and} self-controlled ( Sober); [he must be] sensible {and} well behaved {and} dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable {and} qualified teacher,

Alcoholics, wine drinkers, smokers, drug users too they all  tend to have evidentially lost their self control.. but often try to dominate others, are control freaks themselves too. They have negative values and not positive ones mostly still too.

Undeniably whether you are also a leader or not getting drunk is still an unacceptable sin as well. And all true Christians consider this still a sinful act
.
 Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.
.
 Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..
 .
Now as I was reflecting about my many past posts on the net  in the last few years I was really saddened to note that too many of them were about bad , greedy people trying to steal , trying to get other people’s money for themselves, stealing the money, or getting  it under false pretences. The love of more money is still the basis of what many of the wrong doings is, was all about..(Eccl 8:11 KJV)  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Little Known Facts About Obama – Obamapedia Obama does not drink Alcohol

.
Almost every internet site, news article before the US president election now had said that Obama does not drink alcohol..
 
and what do we find out after he is elected what kind of alcoholic beer he really likes? what else did he and the others lie about too? 
 
and what abbout Canada’s prime Minister Stephen Harper does he like to drink beer and wine now too?.
.
 
 
 
Now is Obama an alcoholic?
 
 I had read on many lying Sites that Barrack Obama does not drink alcohol and  that is not true.. http://www.sofakingdrunk.com/2008/05/09/obama-and-clinton-drinking-alcohol-obama-drunk-clinton-drunk/
 
Obama amongst some others  reiterated his support for civil unions for homosexuals. No surprise there. Some Christians   do indeed allow for the conferring of some legal rights, short of marital status, on gays as a simple matter of fairness. We cannot legislate or enforce morality. Nevertheless all true Christians consider this a sinful act But I suspect his rationale raised some hackles. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans”. Barrack Obama. Since when did Romans 1 become obscure? I thought pitting the words of Jesus against those of Paul was a tactic of Red Letter Christians, not something a serious candidate for the Oval Office would engage in.There is no refererence to gay civil unions in the Sermon on the Mount (unless you stretch the Golden Rule beyond all recognition). Perhaps Obama mixed up his Bible references   Is Barack Obama a Red Letter Christian? http://blog.christianitytoday.com/ctliveblog/archives/2008/03/is_barack_obama.html

What Obama now is another  type of Christian? Are there now really so many different types?  My next door neighbor tells me he is a Christian, and he says is a member of the church of Jesus Christ, the LATTER DAY SAINTS, Mormons, and he says now today he reads the Bible and prays daily too.  But  when I started to ask him about what the   Apostle had said in the Bible now about getting drunk,  he next said he did not believe in any of the the 12 apostles  writings, but yes, he believes that these writings  they are in the books that supposedly composing the Common Bible, but he does not  believe they are really part of the valid Bible. So when I next had further asked him what he now had defined as being the true Bible, he said the Bible according to Him now  was solely the spoken word of Jesus. He is another one of  those red lettered Christians..  So I asked him if he believed solely   in the  4 Gospels, the Bible books written now anyway by some of the 12   Apostles of Jesus anyway,  even Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.. and so if he really is now  believing in the 4  Gospel, the  still   Apostolic writings so what was the problem in him now even believing that the Book of Revelation  in the Standard Bible now was aalso a  part of the Bible? After all it was written by the same Apostle John who now had written  the book of John, and the epistles of John now too.. Now he next replied and had said  he did not believe in the book of Revelation as being a part of the Bible. Wow! This is getting all so confusing, needlessly complicated too , listening to him firstly. Really now what does he  believe in cause I really cannot figure out how he picks and chooses to believe, it seems he believes in the ten commandments, but he does not even know what they are still too, he really believes in the Gospel solely according  to him and not the Gospel according to Jesus and the Apostles.. and he admits has these complex rules for Bible interpretations as to what is valid and what is not, all  made by his church, and he next had said I should go to his church to find out what these rules now are. I replied and said I did not need any more of these clearly false mere man made religion, rules to tell me what part of the Bible I should believe in firstly , for the Holy Spirit himself, the spirit of Christ has clearly promised to lead us and to guide us personally now  into all truth, not rather anyone else who admits they do not even believe in the standard Bible now too. The Bible and Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever too.  I can read for myself and I can believe in it myself without has clearly distorted directions, guidance, rules now too. . I also either take it all as being  God’s word’s or none of it. It is as simple as that for a start now too.

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. It is not coincidental for me but almost every alcoholic person  now is also a major denier, liar.. they lie they are not alcoholic to start of with, they tend to lie as to how much they really do drink, and they tend do not disclose often where the money for the booze really comes from often too. So when I encounter a big liar I also check to see if they are also alcoholic, or when I know they are alcoholic I tend to also know that they are big liars too. THAT IS WHY I WOULDN’T ELECT A LIAR OR AN ALCOHOLIC TO A POLITICAL OR A CHUIRCH OFFICE AS WELL.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/02/28/pm-stephen-harper-does-drink-alcohol/
 
.
Now it  would it no be really great if we now had really next  elected decent, qualified, non alcoholic persons as well  who really care more than just about the job, about being hired, the money, winning, the office prestige and  if now we did elect  a genuine, good, adequate  politician rather instead  who  really did care  about the good welfare of the people in the riding in reality.. AND WOULD    WORK ON THEIR BEHALF MAINLY AND NOT INSTEAD FOR THEIR OWN OR THEIR PARTY’S BENEFIT MAINLY.
