The familiar refrain, GET A JOB! That sound that emits from the closed minded like a malodorous sulfuric cloud.
I know I know. It's not polite to swear and all, but the reality is most evident, with evidence even!
Here in BC? things are really bad, despite all the ballyhooing the BC Liberals do about how fucking wonderful they are.

We live in what they term as a "fixer upper".
Sometimes they just have to get done, as demonstrated the other day when the bathroom window almost fell out. I came home from work, and there it was, new. Smaller because that was what was available. "I tried to open it" was the explanation from L'hommevert. Makes sense to me.
Original 1940's windows, but the frame around this one had dissolved. I think that it was a justified repair?
Here is the new smaller window, and new wainscoting and molding that has gone in the last few days. None of the walls are straight, so it is like a puzzle. Way too much work, time, and anguish to demo and replace the plaster walls, so this was the plan.

Yanno, not all of us are downloading movies and computer games and porn. Copyrighted stuff.
So then we end up compressing, making stuff small. Losing a lot of quality, a lot of time is wasted.
And for all of that, I get nothing. I get wasted time, hackneyed footage and loss of quality.
That is not the free market. So please, big ISP's, get stuffed. I do not particularly care if you have a nice day or not. I am in fact hoping that ticks and fleas invade your offices. They may not find much to feed on. Parasites tend to avoid other parasites.

Say it with me.....Awwww!
Here is the smallest violin. Playing just for her.
I am disappointed about so many things too Christy!
In your whole party line. In the installation of the HST through lies and subterfuge. In the stalling on removing that corporate welfare tax, despite a resounding smack upside the head from the voters. In the BC Rail scandal. I am disappointed in your socialist mentality, only when it comes to your rich buddies.
And this backtracking, is only because you got caught.
So, take your sanctimonious bullshit and stick it right up your ass. :) And do have a nice day!

Because mostly? People are too fucking stoopid to pay attention.
So many are critical of the Occupy movement, but they really cannot give any relevant facts or reasons for being that way.
The corporate media all play deaf blind and dumb to the actual message so they do not have to acknowledge what is going on, and why the 99% are getting restless.

Or something like that.
But that road is still a hundred million miles long. Wage disparity and discrimination are still daily battles.
And sexual harassment.
Often enough, even though sexual harassment is considered social pariah territory, it still depends on who is being accused.
There is the rape blame game, and the sexual harassment limbo.
How low can they go?
Herman Cain, the most current frontrunner for the US GOP presidential nomination, has been exposed as a serial harasser. One allegation was exposed, Cain insisted it was not true. No one was paid any settlements, he said.
It has since gone from there, to more women coming forward, and the knowledge that lots of money was paid to settle out of court.
Two women have come forward, full names.
The GOP and other "conservatives" have been smearing and making lots of accusations.
But they are aiming their anger at the victims.

Ya. I know. But this still cracks me up.
This was filmed in Vancouver. I am just rambling to get this to post. The crazy ass webmistress has set this to 25 words.

This weeks newz is that Timmy's is trying to muscle in on the Starbucks clientele.
Of course using a word like clientele in a sentence with Timmy's is kinda mind blowing to start with.
Timmy's is that same place that uses the corporate tagline, Always fresh, that serves the baked elsewhere-flash frozen and shipped from some undisclosed factory-then convection microwaved baked goods, and coffee that has been going downhill for sometime.....You know the place? Stephen Harper even ditches the United Nations for Timmy's photo ops.
They are soon going to be offering fake lattes and cappuccino's starting at $2.
Now that just screams quality, don't it?

I have discovered something horrible this year.
My littlest gurlies, the ones who have lived with me in my Halloween themed house their whole lives, are suddenly petrified of many of the decorations that I love so much.
I tell ya. What a pair of wussies.
I brought out my talking skull, named Boris, and it was like a classic case of hysteria. Running screaming, hiding under the covers. Real fear. Not faked.
Boris, has a microphone, and when you talk into it he changes the pitch and his mouth moves.
They are even scared of Esther; she is a skeleton in a wedding dress that sings. This is made even more bizarre because she was never ever packed away in a box. She resides in my bedroom or on the couch, or a chair somewhere.
Much the same as the hand that is often left hanging out of drawers or peeking out from under the chesterfield.

The news is all alight with the question of the day..
But the thing that has made me go WTF? is this one.....Did Rob Ford, the dude who FEARS Marg Delahunty, (portrayed by Mary Walsh) swear at the 9/11 operator?
HUH? So the Globe and Mail publishes an anon statement, (yet another chickenshit) disputing another statement, and the gist is that what Ford did was perhaps not as bad, because he was simply abusive as opposed to dropping the FBomb?

Cops, athletes, soldiers, Cabinet Ministers....
I highly doubt the cabinet minister he was referring to will be doing that anytime soon......
Good on Mr Mercer.

Madame Flaherty hath spoken.
But, considering the track record, stock up on essentials. Hide any and all cash under yer mattress, and be prepared. This will not go well.
But, we already kinda knew that.
