CHRISTMAS FOR MOMS


It was the night before Christmas, when all thru the abode
only one creature was stirring, and she was cleaning the commode.
The children were finally sleeping, all snug in their beds,
while visions of Nintendo and Barbie, flipped through their heads.
The dad was snoring in front of the TV,
with a half-constructed bicycle on his knee.
So only the mom heard the reindeer hooves clatter,
which made her sigh, “Now what’s the matter?”
With toilet bowl brush still clutched in her hand,
she descended the stairs, and saw the old man.
He was covered with ashes and soot, which fell with a shrug.
“Oh great,” muttered the mom, “Now I have to clean the rug.”
“Ho-ho-ho!” cried Santa, “I’m glad you’re awake.
Your gift was especially difficult to make.”
“Thanks, Santa, but all I want is some time alone.”
“Exactly!” he chuckled, “I’ve made you a clone.”
“A clone?” she asked,“What good is that?
Run along, Santa, I’ve no time for chit-chat.”
It was the mother’s twin.
Same hair, same eyes, same double chin.
“She’ll cook, she’ll dust,
She’ll mop every mess.
You’ll relax, take it easy,
Watch The Young & the Restless.”
“Fantastic!” the mom cheered.
“My dream has come true!
I’ll shop. I’ll read,
I’ll sleep a whole night through!”
From the room above, the youngest began to fret.
“Mommy?! I'm scared… and I ‘m wet.”
The clone replied, “I’m coming, sweetheart.”
“Hey,” the mom smiled, “She knows her part.”
The clone changed the small one, and hummed a tune,
as she bundled the child, in a blanket cocoon.
“You're the best mommy ever. I really love you.”
The clone smiled and sighed, “I love you, too.”
The mom frowned and said, “Sorry, Santa, no deal.
That’s my child’s love, she’s trying to steal.”
Smiling wisely Santa said, “To me it is clear,
Only one loving mother, is needed here.”
The mom kissed her child, and tucked her into bed.
“Thank you, Santa, for clearing my head.
I sometimes forget, it won’t be very long,
when they’ll be too old, for my cradle-song.”
The clock on the mantle began to chime.
Santa whispered to the clone, “It works every time.”
With the clone by his side Santa said, “Goodnight.
Merry Christmas, Mom, You’ll be all right.”

Thanks Kerry

Who Wants to be a Millionaire?


 A contestant on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" had reached the final plateau.
If she answered the next question correctly, she would win$1,000,000. If she answered incorrectly, she would pocket only the $32,000 milestone money.
 As she suspected it would be, the million- dollar question was no pushover. It was: Which of the following species of birds does not build its own nest, but instead lays its eggs in the nests of other birds? Is it


 A) the condor;
B) the buzzard;
C) the cuckoo; or
D) the vulture?"


The woman was on the spot. She did not know the answer. And she was doubly on the spot because she had used up her 50/50 Lifeline and her Audience Poll Lifeline. All that remained was her Phone-a-Friend Lifeline, and the woman had hoped against hope that she would not have to use it because the only friend that she knew would be home happened to be a blonde. But the contestant had no alternative. She called her friend and gave her the question and the four choices.


The blonde responded unhesitatingly: "That's easy. The answer is C: The cuckoo."


The contestant had to make a decision and make it fast. She considered employing a reverse strategy and giving Regis any answer except the one that her friend had given her. And considering that her friend was a blonde, it would seem to be the logicalthing to do. On the other hand -- the blonde had responded with such confidence, such certitude, that the contestant could not help but be persuaded. "I need an answer," said Regis. Crossing her fingers, the contestant said, "C: The cuckoo."


"Is that your final answer?" asked Regis. "Yes, that is my final answer."


Two seconds later, Regis said, "I regret to inform you that the answer is-...... absolutely correct.


You are now a millionaire!"


Three days later, the contestant hosted a party for her family and friends including the blonde who had helped her win the million dollars. "Jenny, I just do not know how to thank you," said the contestant. "Because of your knowing the answer to that final question, I am now a millionaire.


And do you want to know something? It was your assuredness with which you answered the question that convinced me to go with your choice. By the way......how did you happen to know the right answer?"


"Oh, come on!" said the blonde. "Everybody knows that cuckoos don't build nests. They live in clocks."

Thanks Randy

Only time will tell if Canadian democracy can be restored.

Retiring Commons clerk Audrey O'Brien sees hope for a better Parliament

Audrey O’Brien finally sees light for Canada’s democracy.

O’Brien, the first female clerk of the House of Commons, had a ringside seat in Parliament for 10 years — what she calls a dark decade of fierce partisanship that placed political interests ahead of “anything parliamentary.”

“The personal quality of the attacks and the rhetoric in the last Parliament were really distressing and it ended up creating an environment that was toxic, as much for members of Parliament as for anybody else,” says O’Brien, who will officially retire Dec. 31.

There were darker periods in Canada’s parliamentary history — but they came well before television entered the House of Commons in 1977 and calmed things down.

Stories abound of fisticuffs and scuffles in the aisles, with injured MPs being carried out, says Ned Franks, professor emeritus at Queen’s University in Kingston. A notorious paper fight broke out in the 1890s when an opposition member wadded an ink well in a ball of paper, striking and nearly knocking out a minister.

Clerks have dealt with it all.

“The clerks at the table are the invisible part of the House. They are anonymous and unknown to the public. They are there to make sure the show goes on, not be part of the show,” says Franks.
O’Brien became clerk in 2005. Paul Martin was prime minister and a succession of minority Parliaments followed until the Conservatives’ 2011 majority win.

That decade was an unruly time. MPs reasserted their ancient parliamentary privileges, demanded documents, called witnesses. The Prime Minister’s Office centralized power even more. Strident partisan politics chipped away at the rules, traditions and public trust of the institution.

http://ottawacitizen.com/news/national/retiring-commons-clerk-audrey-obrien-sees-hope-for-a-better-parliament

O’Brien watched, for example, as time limits were imposed on legislative debates, more committee business was done behind closed doors, free debate was squelched by prepared scripts, omnibus bills were crammed with sweeping legislative changes, and rude and raucous question periods were dominated by contrived answers that often had nothing to do with the question.

Restore not destroy 24 Sussex

94-year-old who worked on renovation of 24 Sussex in 1950s says it would be 'foolish' to demolish it

Ottawa resident Julien Olson lives with Canadian history every day – literally.
His apartment is furnished with a coffee table and stand made from hand-carved wooden pieces Olson salvaged during the early-1950s renovation that transformed a historic mansion at 24 Sussex Drive into an official residence for prime ministers. He has the original blueprints, too, neatly rolled.
In his still-agile mind, he carries vivid memories of the two years he spent double-checking the work at 24 Sussex on behalf of his employer, the Department of Public Works. At 94, he may well be the last person alive who was directly involved in the renovation project.
“I had just started with Public Works,” recalls Olson, who was raised on a farm in Alberta and graduated in 1949 with an architecture degree from the University of Manitoba. “One of the first jobs I got was 24 Sussex.”
He basically lucked into the assignment. “I’d been there for about a year and I hadn’t really got into anything, so they said, ‘We need somebody representing the government.’ And I was available.”
There was no fixed contract for the 24 Sussex renovations, Olson says. “It was one of the only cost-plus jobs Public Works ever did.” The work ultimately cost $410,000, based on the cost of labour and materials plus a percentage markup. That’s the equivalent of more than $1.2 million in today’s dollars.


Brad Wall: One F'cked up Westerner

After decades of support from the Provinces of Quebec and Ontario this self-centered egotistical prick thinks we still owe him. For what?

We are one country under one flag, we support one another, it is the road to survival and prosperity. How soon do Saskatchewanites and Albertans forget the support they recieved in the past and start whining that they deserve more. 

SUCK IT UP ASSHOLE.

Sask. Premier Brad Wall asks Ottawa to send money back while oil prices low


Saskatchewan's premier wants the federal government to consider returning a portion of the money it is taking from so-called "have" provinces while energy prices are low.

Brad Wall says provincial taxpayers in Saskatchewan continue to send hundreds of millions of dollars Ottawa's way through their taxes.
The federal government sends money out to poorer provinces through its equalization program.
Wall says because of a lag in calculating those payments, Saskatchewan is sending money when its resource economy is struggling.
He says the same is true for other energy-dependent provinces, such as Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador.

When this loser pays back the nearly 5 decades of equalization payments his Province received then maybe, just maybe we can talk.....


And to bring 2015 to an end..... Asshole of the Century

The Verdict is in: Guess Who's The Worst President in US History?



Americans of all stripes love to debate which president was best or worst. This is a subject that is too important to rely on opinion polls, which are skewed by individual bias and political views. While It's difficult to rate how good or bad any president may have been in comparison to another, a careful look at the facts shows one president failed in virtually every aspect of the job to a degree unrivaled by any other.

When you review the facts below and consider his impact on our economy, foreign policy, and domestic policy, by almost any standard, it’s difficult to find any president who did more harm and left the country in worse shape than George W. Bush.

At the same time that Bush was leaving office with a 28% job approval rating, 61% of historians rated George W. Bush's presidency as the worst in history. In another, informal survey of 109 professional historians, 98.2% judged the Bush presidency as a failure while a mere 1.8% classified it as a success.

Below you can find all the reasons that George Bush deserves the title of Worst President in US History. I encourage you to do your own research and verify the facts stated in this article.

A Baby Koala Clings To His Mother While She Undergoes Surgery.



Lizzy the koala was taken to a wildlife hospital in an Australian zoo, with her son holding on to her side. Poor Lizzy had been hit by a car. Her little boy,
Phantom, only 6-months-old, was luckily unharmed and screamed when they tried to remove him from his mother. 

 Lizzy suffered a collapsed lung that required emergency surgery. Phantom continued to hold on and would not leave her even during the operation.
Lizzy survived the surgery and is currently recovering with Phantom by her side.



These amazing images displaying a sonĂ¢s love for his mother are heartwarming. Please take a minute and share these wonderful images with someone you know.
