Toronto Officer helps elderly gentleman

Contrary to what those outside the Province of Ontario wish to believe there are good people here......



"When there’s a senior in need, this level of service is just outstanding, and I’m very, very proud of officer Borsboom and what he did for this senior citizen," 14 Division Superintendent Mario Di Tommas said of the kind officer.

This is not an isolated act of kindness but is quite common here in Ontario from people in all walks of life. Growing up in the greater Montreal area I had always heard that Torontonians were cold and aloof..... not so

I have been fortunate to have been the recipient of much kindness over the past 26 years and tell you that it is a pleasure living here with these loyal and friendly Canadians.

Harpers greatest hits..... appalling

Harper wants to control what the CBC can present to Canadians.... he controls Sun media and is now trying to take over our public broadcaster.....


Duffy makes outrages demands of Conservatives

While speculation on my part I said the other day that, in my opinion, there was an agreement made prior to Nigel Wright cutting Senator Duffy a check for 90,000 DuffyBucks that repayment would be made from the Conservatives war chest at a later date.

Now in emails between Duffy and a Conservative insider we see some of the Duffmasters attempts to extort money from the Conservative fund for his services.... including being made a Minister without portfolio....

The emails, from 2009, are between Duffy and a Conservative insider.
The email asks for advice about how Duffy should be compensated for what the email calls "my expanded role in the party." In the message, Duffy says he'll be speaking with Conservative Senator Irving Gerstein at a Senate golf banquet, but seems to indicate he'd already spoken with Gerstein. 
The email goes on, "I suggested they make me a min without portfolio, so I get a staff, car and more resources to deal with the pr fallout etc. he laughed and said he didn't think THAT was within the realm of the Cons fund."
So, continues the email, "What do I demand?" Then, in a bracketed sentence, he seems to answer his own question: "(That the Cons fund hire my private company, and I use the cash to hire additional staff to assist with these gigs?)
According to CBC, the Conservative insider replied telling Duffy not use Senate resources and that all his expenses should be reimbursed from the Conservative Fund, the Conservative Party's fundraising arm.

We now know, however, that Duffy didn't play by the rules. He was double-dipping.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/senator-mike-duffy-mused-becoming-minster-report-212229425.html

And apparently, in true racketeering fashion, no paperwork or record of the agreement to pay the tab on behalf of Mike Duffy were ever made.....

Makes one say "Hmmmmm, so that's how they do it, EH"?

AND THEN IT IS WINTER

 
I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL & WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD. THIS EMAIL IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING. MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK. READ SLOWLY!
 
You know. . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.
But, here it is... the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.
But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be. Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...its over. A new adventure will begin!
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!
"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
LIVE IT WELL!
ENJOY TODAY!
DO SOMETHING FUN!
BE HAPPY !
HAVE A GREAT DAY

Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
 
Thanks Randy

Golfers are good!



A circus owner runs an ad for a lion tamer and two people show up. One is a good looking, older retired golfer in his late sixties and the other is a gorgeous blonde in her mid-twenties.
The circus owner tells them, "I'm not going to sugar coat it - This is one ferocious lion! He ate my last tamer so you two had better be good or you're history. Here's your equipment -- chair, whip and a gun. Who wants to try out first?"
The girl says, "I'll go first."
She walks past the chair, the whip and the gun and steps right into the lion's cage. The lion starts to snarl and pant and begins to charge her. About half way there, she throws open her coat revealing her beautiful naked body.
The lion stops dead in his tracks, sheepishly crawls up to her and starts licking her feet and ankles. He continues to lick and kiss her entire body for several minutes and then rests his head at her feet.
The circus owner's jaw is on the floor.
He says, "I've never seen a display like that in my life." He then turns to the retired golfer and asks, "Can you top that?"
The tough old golfer replies, "No problem, just get that lion out of the way!

Thanks Norman..... I don't know how to tell you this but this joke is so old.... "How old is it"? my dad told this when I was about 18 ..... that's 1/2 a century ago LOL

We know "RoboCall" Fraud occurred... we know it originated in the Conservative camp

Yes my fellow Canadians "RoboCall" fraud is a reality.... we know it originated from the Conservative camp but Elections Canada does not have the power to force people to testify. So what should we, the people, do to ensure our elections are fraud free?

I hate to tell you this Canada, there is nothing you can do. First of all one must file a complaint with Canada's National police force.... the RCMP ... the problem, they are under the direct control of the Harper government.

The law is the law.... fraud breaches the law.... fraud is an indictable offence .... but not in Canada under the Conservatives.... the cowards in the RCMP live in fear of the Conservatives and therefore will look the other way or will declare that there is insufficient evidence to proceed.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/head-elections-canada-confirms-witnesses-not-co-operating-175116320.html

Ken Morgan is in hiding and those with knowledge refuse to testify and the changes to Election Canada's powers are in the hands of the perpetrators..... and Canada expects disclosure ..... good luck people.... don't say you weren't warned.

We, the cheating bastards of Canadian politics, prevail

Harper is concealing environmental issues on the tar sands bi-product

There is more to the issue of tar sands pollution that is being kept from Canadians and the American public. What happens to the bi-product known as petroleum coke or PetCoke?


The waste product which is banned to burn in the USA and in Canada is shipped to China and burned as fuel. What does that mean to North America? We already know that the prevailing winds carry pollution from Asia to North America as does the oceans so what we ban in North America has an affect on us anyway.

The ignorance of the Conservatives regarding health effects and the spiraling cost of Medicare by the abolishing of environmental standards is very troubling. We are an aging society and the various cities and provinces post air quality warning for the aged and those with lung and breathing problems.....

My question to Stephen Harper is.... Why? .... Why do we post warnings if we don't have an air quality problem? Why are lung problems on the rise?

Comment on the 70th anniversity of the Greenfield Park Legion

Hello Bob. Just a short note to congratulate all of those "Parkers" who organized the special Legion celebrations this past weekend. From all that I have heard it was a tremendous success and so Kudos to all those involved in organizing it. And "Lest We Forget" a very special shout-out and a salute to those who were the honoured group, and their colleagues who didn't make it home, who gave it their all to protect our democratic Canadian way of life and for making our little town of Greenfield Park one of the best places in this country to grow up in. JMcC
 
Thanks John.... we all owe our brave men past and present a thank you for their efforts in preserving our liberties and freedom. The youth of today take their freedom for granted and it is up to us to keep the courage of our defenders front and centre so their sacrifice does not go unnoticed by Canadians.

The Ode to Fluffy

 
Fluffy Duffy, sat in the House
Fluffy Duffy, was a real louse.
Trying to figure, “Where is his home?”
On taxpayers’ money, he continued to roam.
 
Wheeling and dealing, like Wallin and Mack
But all of a sudden, he seemed to lose track.
Of how much he took, and where it all went
Said he had no idea, how it got spent.
 
So back to the trough, to try to get more
Said to his wife, “We’ll never be poor”.
The rules are unclear, and colleagues so dumb
From PEI, I’ll tell them I’m from.
 
Two principal homes, he claimed to possess
Saying if he gets caught, he’ll never confess.
He feared he might have, a big heart attack
So the money he’ll need, and not give it back.
 
Then along came that scoundrel, Robert S. Fife
His nosing around, upset Fluffy’s life.
He blabbed to the world, Fluffy’s nothing but dirt
And God only knows, how much that hurt.
 
He prodded and poked, and gossip he bought
Fluffy had no idea, he’d ever get caught.
“He’s an honest man”, Harper he claimed
Fluffy’s response to them all, was “He had been defamed”.
 
When it seemed to them all, that Fluffy was done
The mess he was in, was not really fun.
They thought they had brought him, down to his knees
Till Harper sent Nigel, with his 90 gs.
 
So off he did run, right up to the bank
Still trying to figure, just who to thank.
Taxpayers, or Harper or Nigel his “friend”
But they all remained silent, right up to the end.
 
The money he took, has thus been put back
So the auditors now, will cease to attack.
Fluffy’s honesty, integrity, and all he’s stood for
Is now in his cabin, behind a locked door.
 
They’ll not snoop around, it is plain for to see
As the help he now has, from R-C-M-P.
His Senator friends, may give him a fine
But do as they wish, he’ll never resign.
 
With an exorbitant salary, which they’ll never freeze
He continues along, and cheats as he please.
Double dipping he’ll show you, can be so easy
When a Senator learns, how to be sleazy.
 
With taxpayers’ dollars, he’s now off the hook,
And he’ll make some more money, when he publishes a book.
And it’s onward and upward, he’ll never be blue
As he continues his game, and make fools out of you.
 
You can’t kiss him goodbye, while he’s still alive
Until of course, when he’s seventy-five.
But by then you will see, before he is off,
He’ll continue to feed, till he empties the trough.
 
It can’t get much better, as he’s still hale and hearty
He got where he is, as a “friend” of the party.
They covered his back, as the truth they can’t tell,
So, unless you’re a Tory, go directly to hell.
 
Politics as you know, is always so sleazy
And ripping you off, they’ve made all too easy
So really good people, won’t get in the game
As cheating and lying, will ruin their good name.
 
It has happened before, and never will change
Attracting those people, who really are strange.
They claim working for you, is not really easy,
As the way they succeed, just has to be sleazy.
Thanks Richard

AGE IS A WONDERFUL THING

 
 
 
ROMANCE
Barb was lying in bed one night. Art was falling asleep but Barb was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.

She said: "You used to hold my hand when we were courting.."
Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.

A few moments later she said: "Then you used to kiss me.."

Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep.

Thirty seconds later she said: "Then you used to bite my Neck..."

Angrily, Art threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed.

"Where are you going?" Barb asked..

"To get my teeth!"

DOWN AT THE RETIREMENT CENTRE

80-year old Bessie bursts into the rec room at the retirement home. She holds
her clenched fist in the air and announces, "Anyone who can guess what's in
my hand can have sex with me tonight!!"

An elderly gentleman in the rear shouts out, "An elephant?"

Bessie thinks a minute and says, "Close enough."
_____________________________________
 
OLD FRIENDS
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.

One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me... I know we've been friends for a long time but I just can't think of your name.. I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is."

Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said,

"How soon do you need to Know?"
_____________________________________

SENIOR DRIVING
As a senior citizen was driving down the motorway, his car phone rang.. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, " Vernon , I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on I25. Please be careful!"

"Hell," said Vernon , "It's not just one car.. It's hundreds of them!"
_____________________________________
 
SUPERSEX
A little old lady who had lost her marbles was running up and down the halls in a nursing home.

As she ran, she would flip up the hem of her nightgown and say "Supersex."

She ran up to an elderly man in a wheelchair, flipping her gown at him, she said, "Supersex."

He sat silently for a moment or two and finally answered, "I'll take the soup."
_____________________________________


DRIVING
Two elderly women were out driving in a large car - both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to major crossroad. The stop light was red, but they just went on through.

The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself "I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light." After a few more minutes, they came to another major junction and the light was red again. Again, they went right through. The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red, but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.
At the next junction, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!"
Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh! Am I driving?"

Please !!!! Friends, tell me this won't happen to us !!!!
 
Thanks Randy

EXACTLY!!


Thanks Joe

The Clock

A man died and went to Heaven. As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.
 
He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'
 
St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks.  Everyone who has ever been on earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock move.'
 
'Oh', said the man. 'Whose clock is that?'
 
'That's Mother Teresa's', replied St. Peter. 'The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.
 
'Incredible', said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?'
 
St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock.  The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire life.'
 
'Where's Mike Duffy's clock?' asked the man.
 
St Peter replied, 'Jesus has it in his office. He uses it as a ceiling fan.'
 
Thanks Ed

Sad but true.... Corruption runs rampant in the Conservative Party

In my opinion the Duffy/Wallin/Brazeau controversy will never go away. First of all I won't let it, not that my voice has significant impact however "the more said the more heard" is a Harper policy so I too shall say it and say it and say it.

I have been around for longer than I want to admit and have had more than a cursory experience with how manipulation of facts are presented as well as how one can use public opinion to your advantage (it's a bully tactic).... in the case of Mike Duffy the PMO has failed miserably.

The failure to act as well as the failure to address is confirmation, in my opinion, that the Prime Minister was fully aware and agreed to the payoff of Duffy's fraudulent expense cover up.

A fact of life is that no one coughs up 90,000 dollars to cover some ones fraudulent activities with the intent to protect another without the knowledge of that principal player (Stephen Harper) and without a guarantee of future reimbursement from the Conservative War Chest so they may avoid media and public scrutiny.

Canadians are disillusioned with Stephen Harper but so are those within his own party. Harper is a control freak and nothing happens without his knowledge and that has created dissention within the party.

We should not paint all Conservatives with the same tainted brush as that of Harper, the PMO and his cabinet however it is a committee of all parties that should be setting the ethical standards for the parties, the house and the senate and not the PMO.

Canadian voters have become immune to the Conservative attempts to deflect fault by attacking the opposition. Voters ignore the Conservative brainwashing techniques..... the biggest mistake the Conservatives are making is to underestimate Canadians and their penchant honest government.

Stephen Harper has forgotten his promise to the people of Canada that he would give them accountability and responsible government.

Canadians are more disillusioned with their government than ever before

Seven years of lies, hate ad's, secrecy, waste and cuts have taken their toll on the people

New Word

This is a recently "coined" new word found on T-shirts on eBay:
  
Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that are within this definition! 
 
I love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word.
  
Finally, a word to describe our current political situation.
 
Thanks Ralph

Jet Black - politically incorrect....

Walt Disney's new film called "Jet Black," the non-racist version of "Snow White," has been put on hold.
 
All of the 7 dwarfs: Dealer, Stealer, Mugger, Forger, Drive By, Pimp, and Wog have refused to sing "Hi Ho" because it offends black prostitutes.
 

They also say they have no fucking intention of singing "It's off to work we go."

Thanks Richard
