The Temple of Harperization

Be Afraid.... Be Very Afraid

Canada is losing its identity as a free nation. Democracy is under attack from this dictatorial Prime Minister.

Debate in the House of Commons is cut short so that controversial bills can be forced through parliament without scrutiny or criticism.

Civil Servants who resist or speak out are forced to resign.

It is no longer "The Canadian Government"

but rather

"The Harper Government"

Canada and Canadians have lost their right to freedom of speech

More Lies

So the Conservatives won't admit they are opting out of Kyoto
their spin doctors want you to believe it is the fault of the previous government but....
wait a minute they are the previous government
Oh! What they mean is "They never signed the agreement"
The Liberals did.... that's true ... in 1998
What the Conservatives want you to believe is that the Liberals did nothing to enforce it..... That's also true

What they are not telling you is that....
Kyoto was signed in 1997 ... ratified in 2002 and came into force in 2005.....


"In adopting Kyoto, the previous Liberal government pledged that Canada would reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by six per cent below 1990 levels by the five-year commitment period of 2008 to 2012. Canada’s 2002 climate change plan committed the country to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 240 million tonnes a year by the end of 2012. It proposes a three-stage strategy to achieve that goal through a combination of incentives, regulations and tax measures."

As we Canadians know the Liberals were under constant fire at that time, then formed a minority government and were subsequently defeated by a minority Conservative Government in 2006. A government who pandered to the oil giants and had run on opting out of Kyoto to form an "Oil Industry sponsored air quality program"

They never intended to remain in Kyoto ....

Stop blaming someone else for your bad intentions  PM Harper

As major players on the World stage Canada should lead by example...... 

What this Conservative Government is saying to the Children of Canada is "It's OK to be a quitter if you can't get your own way"

Take your ball and go home like a bunch of spoiled hateful brats

Tech Service

Thanks Senior Moment
The iron fence around the Prime Minister's residence at 24 Sussex Drive
was in need of repair, and contractors from Alberta , Quebec and
Newfoundland were bidding for the job. The three of them went to look at the
job to be done along with a government official.

The Alberta contractor took out a measuring tape, did some calculations
and announced. "I figure the job will run about $9000, of which $4000 is for
materials, $4000 for my crew and $1000 of profit for me."

The Newfie contractor then measured the area, did some figuring and
announced, "I can do the job for $7000, being $3000 for materials,
$3000 for my crew and $1000 profit for me."

The Quebec contractor didn't measure anything and didn't do any
calculations. He simply leaned over to the government official and
whispering "$27,000."

The government official turned back to him saying, "You didn't even
measure or calculate like the other guys, so how do you come up with such a
big amount?"

The Quebec contractor whispers back to him, "$10,000 for me, $10,000
for you and we hire the Newfie to do the job."
"Done" replies the government official.

Thanks Norman

The Irish Millionaire

The  Irish  Millionaire
Mick, from Dublin , appeared on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' and towards the end of the program had already won 500,000 euros.

"You've done very well so far,"  said Chris Tarrant, the show's presenter,
  "but for a million euros you've only got one life-line left, phone a friend.
Everything is riding on this question.  Will you go for  it?"

"Sure,"  said Mick. "I'll have a  go!"

"Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest? 

a)   Sparrow
b)   Thrush,
c)   Magpie,
d)   Cuckoo?"

"I  haven't got a clue." said  Mick, 

''So  I'll use my last  lifeline and phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin    ..."

Mick called up his mate, and told  him the circumstances and
repeated the question to him.

"Hell, Mick!" cried  Paddy.  "Dat's  simple, it's a cuckoo."
"Are you sure?"

"I'm sure."

Mick hung up the phone and told Chris, "I'll go with cuckoo as my answer." 

"Is that your final answer?"  asked Chris.

"Dat it is."

There was a long,  long pause and then the presenter screamed, "Cuckoo is the correct answer!  Mick, you've won 1 million euros!"

The next night, Mick invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink.

"Tell me, Paddy?  How in Heaven's name did you know
 it was da Cuckoo that doesn't build its own  nest?" 
"Because he lives in a clock!"

Thanks Pat

Simon's Cat in 'Santa Claws'


How's this story for a reminder that "We don't know we're alive"
Her name is Katie Kirkpatrick, 21 yrs old. Next to her is her fiancĂ©, Nick, 23. This picture was taken prior to their wedding January 11th, 2005.  Katie has terminal cancer and spends hours in chemotherapy Here Nick awaits while she finishes one of the sessions... 
Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of morphine, Katie took care of every single part of the wedding planning.  Her dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie 's constant weight loss. 
expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had to use it during the ceremony and reception. The other couple in this picture is Nick's parents, very emotional with the wedding and to see their son marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent.
Katie, in a wheel chair listening to her husband and friends singing to her. 
the middle of the party, Katie had to rest for a bit and catch her breath The pain does not allow her to stand for long period of time. 
Katie died 5 days after her wedding. To see a fragile woman dress as bride with a beautiful smile makes you think... Happiness is always there within reach, no matter how long it lasts.  Let’s enjoy life and don't live a complicated life.   Life is too short. Work as if it was your first day  Forgive as soon as possible. Love without boundaries.  Laugh without control and never stop smiling  Please pray for those suffering from

Things to know

n the 1400's a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb.
Hence we have 'the rule of thumb'

Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented.
It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden'.. .
and thus, the word GOLF entered into the English language. 


The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV was Fred and Wilma Flintstone

Coca-Cola was originally green

It is impossible to lick your elbow. 


The cost of raising a medium-size dog
to the age of eleven:
£ 10,120.00 


The first novel ever
written on a typewriter, Tom Sawyer.

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents
a great king from history: 

Spades - King David

Hearts - Charlemagne

Clubs -Alexander, the Great

Diamonds - Julius Caesar


111,111,111 x
111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987, 654,321

If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle.
If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died because of wounds received in battle.
If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died
of natural causes 


Q.. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you would find the letter 'A'? 

A. One thousand

Q. What do bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers and laser printers have in common?

A. All were invented by women.

Q. What is the only food that doesn't spoil?

A. Honey


In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes.
When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened,
making the bed firmer to sleep on.
Hence the phrase...'Goodnight , sleep tight' 


It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.


In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts....
So in old England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them 'Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down. It's where we get the phrase: 'mind your P's and Q's'


Many years ago in England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. 'Wet your whistle'
is the phrase inspired by this practice.

Drinking and driving experience

I would like to share an experience with you which has to do with drinking and driving. The other night I was out for dinner with a few friends.
 After consuming too many beers, and knowing full well that I was wasted, I did something I’ve never done before. Believe it or not, I took a bus home. Yes, a bus. I arrived home safely and without incident.
This was really a surprise to me since I have never driven a bus before.

Thanks Kerry

Ben Stein Christmas in America

The following is attributed to Ben Stein

My  confession:
I am a  Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.  And it does not bother me  even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up,  bejeweled  trees, Christmas trees.  I don't feel threatened.  I don't feel  discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas  trees.
It doesn't bother me a  bit when people say, 'Merry  Christmas' to me.  I don't think they are  slighting me or getting  ready to put me in a ghetto.  In fact, I kind of like  it.   It shows that we are all brothers and sisters  celebrating this happy  time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that  there is a manger scene  on display at a key intersection near my beach  house in Malibu ...   If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me  as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.
I don't like getting  pushed around for  being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting  pushed around for  being Christians.  I think people who believe in  God are sick and  tired of getting pushed around, period.  I have no  idea where the  concept came from, thatAmerica is an explicitly atheist  country.   I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it  being shoved  down my throat.
Or maybe I can put it  another way: where did the  idea come from that we should worship  celebrities and we aren't allowed  to worship God as we understand  Him?  I guess that's a sign that  I'm getting old, too.  But  there are a lot of us who are wondering  where these celebrities came from  and where the America we knew went  to.
In light of the many  jokes we send to one another for a  laugh, this is a little  different:  This is not intended to be a  joke; it's not funny, it's  intended to get you thinking.

The information posted above has been altered to some extent. For Ben's full statement visit

Dogs Welcome

"Dogs Welcome"
A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation.
He wrote: I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?"
An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote:

SIR: "I've been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls.
I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly.
And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.
Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay here, too."

Thanks Penny.... I love it


Hang on to your seat,
If you start to feel dizzy, just hang on to your chair. This is really incredible!
How amazing that someone could not only create this, but make it to change
when you move your mouse / cursor...or you can just sit back and let it change
by itself. Either way it is awesome!!! Very nice.........and pure genius!

Be sure to run your mouse over the screen slowly
