Saturday Post

For this sultry week-end...

Ontario is Canada's California:

When credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s recently downgraded Ontario’s credit ranking, it assured higher interest payments down the road.

Typical of the Wynne government, it publicly downplayed the bad news and continued to forge ahead with its spending spree.

According to Sousa’s spokesperson, the downgrade will have “no material impact” on the government’s big borrowing and big spending agenda.

Of course not. Should we expect any different?

The Wynne government now carries $307 billion in debt, and it plans on spending $130 billion more on infrastructure pet projects over the next decade.

As a recent Bloomberg Business report stated, Ontario has now accumulated twice as much debt as California.

It’s the world’s most indebted sub-sovereign borrower.

And it has no plans to stop borrowing anytime soon.


I'm informed that your Commission (via your proxy) considers the word "crazy" an insult. ...

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As they say in Texas, you couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions printed on the heel. You are a canker, an open wound. I would rather kiss the Law Society of Alberta than be seen with you.

You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, and a weasel. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon. ...

It is hard to believe how incredibly stupid you are. Stupid as a stone that the other stones make fun of. So stupid that you have traveled far beyond stupid as we know it and into a new dimension of stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid cubed. Trans-stupid stupid. Stupid collapsed to a singularity where even the stupons have collapsed into stuponium. Stupid so dense that no intelligence can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot midday sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one minute than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. It cannot be possible that anything in our universe can really be this stupid. This is a primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. A pure extract of stupid with absolute stupid purity. Stupid beyond the laws of nature. 

There's even a petition.

Wow. This is as ugly as Trudeau's little stunt:

The federal NDP is encouraging parents who don’t need the newly enhanced universal child care benefit to donate the money to the party.

Hillary Clinton is set to testify before a House Committee on Benghazi:

Hillary Rodham Clinton will testify Oct. 22 before the House committee investigating the deaths of four Americans in the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, her presidential campaign said Saturday.

The committee did not immediately confirm the date for the former secretary of state’s appearance.

Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said the Democratic candidate’s testimony will be public. Clinton’s lawyers and the Republican-led committee have been negotiating over the terms under which she might appeal before the committee.

Terms, my @$$. She can tell the truth or run her presidential campaign behind bars.

Also: no one in Kenya cares about the white Obama's imperialist opinions:

Who cares what some white communist Islamist-sympathiser like Obama thinks, anyway? The world does not revolve around cakes for gay weddings but people are awfully worried about those roving bands of well-armed lone wolves who rape children and throw homosexuals off of roofs.

Obama knows this and does not care. His malice is not ill-informed.

This guy was treated differently by ISIS.


IRS Used Donor Lists to Target Conservatives for Audits. 

 “These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech. And the snarky comments about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the obsession with Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPD show that the IRS was targeting critics of the Obama administration.”


Ted Cruz is clearly the right choice for president:

In a 19-minute speech on the Senate floor today, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) accused his fellow Republican and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) of repeating a “simple lie” about a deal for reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, and for ignoring amendments on issues that Americans truly care about, such as the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

“There are a host of amendments that the American people are focused on, things like defunding Planned Parenthood, after the gruesome video,” which came out this week and last week, said Sen. Cruz.

But “the Majority Leader doesn’t want to vote on that,” said Cruz. “That’s actually something the American people are focused on.”

It's called listening to the electorate, not "killing the messenger".


Pope Francis on Sunday denounced what he calls the “great powers” of the world for failing to act when there was intelligence indicating Jews, Christians, homosexuals and others were being transported to death camps in Europe during the Second World War.

He also decried the deaths of Christians in concentration camps in Russia under the Stalin dictatorship, which followed the war.

The pope’s harsh assessments came in impromptu remarks during his visit to Turin, northern Italy, when he told young people he understands how they find it hard to trust the world.

“The great powers had photographs of the railway routes that the trains took to the concentration camps, like Auschwitz, to kill the Jews, and also the Christians, and also the Roma, also the homosexuals,” Francis said, citing the death camp in Poland. “Tell me, why didn’t they bomb” those railroad routes?

Referring to concentration camps that came “a little later” in Russia, Francis wondered aloud: “How many Christians suffered, were killed” there?

Lamenting the cynicism of world players in the 1930s and 1940s, Francis said: “the great powers divided up Europe like a cake.”

He also cited what he called the “great tragedy of Armenia” in the last century. “So many died. I don’t know the figure, more than a million, certainly. But where were the great powers then? They were looking the other way,” the pope said.

And this is why you have fat children:

For all the parents who tell their kids to log off their devices and get outside – a new program may just keep them online a little longer.

North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS), an online school funded by the North Carolina General Assembly, is set to launch an online physical education class this coming school year.  
How will it work?  

“Teachers will provide video demonstration of a physical activity or sport, then students will practice those skills and build their own video portfolios to document their progress and display mastery,” a press release posted by the N.C. Department of Instruction explains.

The online gym class will provide those students enrolled in the virtual school with a well-rounded education, says Karen Creech, an instructional director.

Yeah, I'm sure those kids will get right on that.
