|The bird in this picture is much like the average voter- so unaware of how screwed it is.|
However disgraceful the Senate scandal (as hyped as it may be and without much-needed reform) is, it is not without precedent. Who held up a senator with Alzheimer's Disease? Who stuck the province of Ontario with billions of dollars in debt? Who took money from schools and charities and called it "speaking fees"? Who went to the US only to disparage Canada's oil sands?
And who never made any of them accountable (see above picture)?
Americans are shocked - SHOCKED!- that Obama lied to them:
So how large a group of people will be facing Obamacare sticker shock?
Well, according to health care analyst Bob Laszewski, about 19 million people are currently in the individual health insurance market and 16 million of them are going to lose their current plan thanks to Obamacare.
You were told, idiots. You have the government and the poverty you voted for.
I hope this pans out:
The company trying to explore for shale gas near Rexton, N.B., is suing Native anti-fracking protesters because it alleges they held its security workers captive, threatened them and destroyed an expensive piece of drilling equipment.
In its statement of claim dated Oct. 3, SWN Resources Canada Inc. names 12 defendants, including protesters Willi Nolan and Ann Pohl and self-described Mi'kmaq warriors Susan Patles and Jim Pictou.
The Texas-based company alleges people identifying themselves as "warriors" held its security workers captive prior to Oct. 17, when the RCMP enforced a court injunction against the Native blockade near the site where the company is trying to find shale gas.It's one thing to sue thugs who smash and burn but no one does that for free. Follow the money and take that, too.
The statement of claim alleges the workers were trapped near their seismic equipment in the woods near Rexton and claims they were threatened by people yelling over a megaphone: "This is the last face you will see" and "Your family will hate you because you won't come home."
SWN Resources says an expensive piece of drilling equipment was also "burned to the ground" and is seeking damages including lost profits, interest and the company's legal costs.
Remember- this is the religion of peace:
Two puppies from Egypt were rescued just moments before they were to be used by the Muslim Brotherhood in their protests as "puppy bombs" dipped in gasoline and set on fire.**
And now, thirteen haunted houses in the US. Enjoy.
