Warning - New Disease To Hit Ontario Fall Of 2011

It's true folks. Word has come down that a new disease is about to invade Ontario and apparently it's a lot tougher than the H1N1 virus that invaded our area a couple of years ago.

Information About Gonorrhea Lectim (Liberalis strain)

The Ontario Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease.

The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible affliction.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum.

Many victims contracted it in 2008...but it is only now that most people, after having been infected for the past few years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout.

You take the first dose in 2010 (HST variant) and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Most ridings are already on top of this, like many in the north, and apparently now in the east, with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk you really care about.

New Political Acronyms

As I get older I can't help wonder what my future will be financially. Will I have the money I need to retire on? What can I expect from the government if I fall short financially? It's enough to boggle the mind. Then one day I received an e-mail from a friend of mine and while it did give me a good chuckle, I can't help but wonder just how close to reality this was.

Here is the message I received. I hope you get a chuckle out of it too.

Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, Parliament has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

  • This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

  • Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to Parliament to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).

  • Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).

  • A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Parliament deems appropriate.

  • Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependants & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

  • Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by Parliament.

  • Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. Parliament has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.

  • Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your MP, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

  • Sincerely,

    The Committee for Economic Value of Individual Lives (E.V.I.L.)

    PS - Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil, as well as current market conditions, the Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off.

A Residents Concern

After the previous post, I received an e-mail from a woman who lives in the area affected by city councils decision. I can't help but wonder how Mr. Mayor feels when he reads letters like this or if he even does read them.

I have already replied to the woman and at the time it seemed that there might have been a reversal of outcome but that was not to be. There was another vote today and the final vote went ftom 12-2 to 9-6 in favour of the West Harbour.

I wish the Mayor or somebody who voted for the West Harbour would read this letter, respond here and explain to the letter writer why she should have to be subjected to such an atrocity.

Here is her letter.

Hamilton City Hall Drops The Ball

In the business world when someone is willing to invest up to $74 million in a project, you try to work with that person for the benefit of all. That's not the case where Hamilton city council is concerned. I'm talking about the West Harbour fiasco of course. Mayor Fred Eisenberger and all but 3 city councilors basicly killed a 141 year tradition in Hamilton by ignoring the wishes of Tiger Cat owner Bob Young and voting to have the new stadium built at the West Harbour site.

One of the first sites to be considered for the new stadium was at Confederation Park but that was quickly shot down by councilor Chad Collins and the vote was pushed right through without any sort of debate. That left the West Harbour and the East Mountain locations. After an 11 hour last minute debate,  Hamilton council backs West Harbour stadium .  Bob Young, the Hamilton Ti-Cats and all their loyal fans got screwed. Royaly.

The vote of course did not sit well with Mr. Young. Ticats owner calls stadium decision 'massive mistake'  was the headline the following day. A massive mistake is not exactly what I would call it. A fiasco of epic proportion. The death knoll to the Cats. Another downtown white elephant to the city. Take your pick. There are more I could come up with but you get the idea. The topper in this was when  CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon threw his support for Bob Young and the Ticats in the dispute

The area chosen is a toxic waste land. I worked at the plant that sits in the midst of the site. It would cost millions to clean the area up even before construction can begin. What about run off after the stadium is built? There's no telling how far down the toxic sludge runs.

As I said above, I worked there for some time and I am well acquainted with the streets and what the traffic is like. On a regular business day traffic can get to be a pain. Some say it's close to the highway. IT'S NOT. Once you are able to get away from the immediate area, it's another 10 or 15 minute drive to the highway on-ramp.

On July 1st, Canada Day, Hamilton had a fireworks display for the citizens. There were approximately 300 to 350 people in attendance. What follows is a video of what took place after the fireworks display was over.

Take a good look at the amount of traffic. Now imagine what it would be like after a football game with about 25 to 35 thousand fans. A nightmare to be sure.

As a friend of mine stated, the Mayor of this city will become known as "The Man Who Lost This City Their Team".
