Monday Post

Quickly now....

Twenty-three days until Christmas.

Why would you jump on the hood of a moving car to begin with?

In Montreal on Monday morning, a vehicle drove through a banner being held by activists, and in another confrontation caught on camera, the driver of a Chevy Tracker refused to stop for protesters. The vehicle inched forward as people tried to stop it before finally speeding away. A person can be seen falling off the front of the Tracker and screaming.


This person is why the Darwin Awards matter.

Dear Liberal voters, you're rotten and you've gotten a government just as rotten as you:

The Liberal government's new long-term energy plan shows that the average monthly residential bill of $125 will rise to $178 within five years -- a 42% increase.

Hydro bills are expected to dip slightly in 2019 to $177 a month, and then rise again until 2022 when they'll hit $193 a month.

A second decrease in prices is forecast for 2023-24 and then the trend for prices is onward and upward for the foreseeable future.

The manufacturing sector has left Ontario and those unable to flee elsewhere are stuck with energy rates that are needlessly expensive.

By the way, no one has forgotten Premier Wynne's friend or his position while she developed a graphic sex education program for children.

That's the government you voted for.

No, North Korea is a "rogue state":

A former Harper government appointee used a keynote speech at a Washington event Monday to trample Canadian authorities' message on oil pipelines and described the country as an environmental "rogue state."

Mark Jaccard was one of the first people nominated by the Conservatives to the environmental file when he was named in 2006 to the federal government's now-defunct National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy.

Seven years later, the environmental economist delivered a lengthy rebuke of Canada's climate-change performance at Monday's event while the Obama administration grapples with whether to approve the Alberta-U.S. pipeline.

Has he seen China's cancer villages?

Is Ukraine sure it wants EU membership?

On Sunday, protesters unfurled the EU flag in the capital Kiev and demanded the resignation of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych after he turned away from an association agreement with the EU that could have paved the way for the country's future membership. On Monday, demonstrators reportedly blockaded the government's main headquarters using trash bins and flower pots to keep out government workers.

The plan is a dud and that is putting it nicely:

The White House is offering more money to insurance companies as an incentive for them to let people keep insurance policies that were to have been canceled next year.

If you like your plan, you can't keep your plan.

Impeach Obama. Give yourself the gift that keeps on giving this Christmas.


And now,  a race between a parrot and a dog. Enjoy.
