A New Beginning?

Hey Everyone,

I know it has been quite a while since I posted on here, but I am thinking it may be time for a comeback. I don't know if it is the air in Ottawa, or maybe the concussion I suffered a few months back has finally rebooted some of my creativity, but I am thinking it is about time for a comeback of sorts. Now my postings will probably have the same theme as before (pro Liberal) but I think it is time to clean things up and start writing with a bit of professionalism (4 years of writing poli sci essays tends to do that to you). I do have an essay that I am currently writing, so I may not make my first official new post for a day or two, but I already have an idea of what it will be which is a summary of some of the events over the past couple of years in federal politics. A brief history of what I have been up to, since I moved from Alberta in 2008, I have attended two years at Laurentian University starting my political science degree, and after meeting a bunch of good friends and people in Sudbury, I decided to move to a university that is closer to where my degree would matter and a school where there is a more robust political science program and began attending Carleton University two years ago. Last spring, I was elected president of the Carleton Political Science Society (unopposed election, but an election win is a win I believe) and began work to build on the society and finish my BA Honours in political science with a law minor, but in October of last year, ended up in a serious car accident in which I suffered a severe concussion. This put me on the shelf for the rest of the year effectively forcing me to drop my fall courses and delay my graduation, and even though I wasn't 100% I tried to go back to school in the winter term. This didn't turn out as well as expected as I didn't do quite as well as I wanted, thanks to a relapse in symptoms in late February. Over the last couple of months, I have been seeing several improvements in my mental processing and my symptoms have mitigated quite a bit since then. So I have the summer courses that I am currently taking along with the fall courses and I should graduate in theory at the end of the year. That has been my life in a nutshell over the last few years, and the next post will be about my thoughts on politics over those years as well.

Just Have to Post This!!!

Hey everyone,
I know it has been quite some time since I last posted on the blog, mainly I have been too busy to really get back into the political discussions that I have had before and partly because I just kinda forgot about it. Anyways, something politically just happened to me earlier in the day and I just wanted to share it with anyone who decides to read this. Earlier in the day, I was invited to a leaders debate party hosted by the NDP. Yeah, I know, but since I live in Sudbury now, and I have several friends who are members, I decided to go. In fact, one of the friends who invited me, is actually rather high up there in the NDP in Sudbury (before you guys ask, I will not say who it was due to his privacy and it is up to him to say anything). Anyways, the main reason why I wanted to go was so my friends and I could sit down in the pub and have a few drinks while watching the debates on the big screen, and have a frank and open discussion on the debates that just occurred. Well, when I arrived there at 7:10pm, I found my friends who were sitting at a table in the bar and there were a lot of NDP people there. I stood right beside them and started to talk to them about what I missed. I got quite a few looks when I walked in since I was wearing the same Liberal Party hat that I always wear (and I have worn several times to other NDP events) but I really didn`t care since I was here to watch the debates with my friends and maybe talk a bit with my MP who I have talked to multiple times over the last few years and could even consider him an acquaintance. Well, once more people started to see that I was there, the Blackberry`s started to come out and then someone came to our table and went to talk to one of my friends who was there. He talked for a few seconds, then came and sat back down, and the guy wanted to talk to me. He pulled me aside and told me that it was a closed event and I was not allowed to be there. I told him that I was invited by several people who were here but if you do not want me here, then I would leave. That is exactly what I did. So, because I was wearing my Liberal hat, I was turfed from a bar within 10 minutes. It must make you think that if your party is so insecure about it`s policies and support that it would not allow a dissenting point of view in the bar, then maybe people shouldn`t be voting for you to begin with. Way to go Jack Layton, your party is literally as open and accountable as the Conservative Party of Canada.

Who else is not Canadian

As pretty much everyone knows, the Cons have come up with new attack ads. My first thought was shouldn't the governing party try to solve the major economic problems that are affecting people all across Canada instead of ads dissing their eventual replacement. Then I realized that they are the Cons and not the Tories and everything started to make sense.

Then another question popped into my head, if Michael Ignatieff is not Canadian because he spent 30+ years traveling the world, living a life most people only dream of, getting some of the most prestigious jobs ever, then who else is not Canadian. Lets take a look at some evil terrorist non-Canadians that are here to destroy the country.

1. Celine Dion: Well, this one was a tough one because a good chunk of Canadians don't want to acknowledge the fact she was born in Canada, but that evil bitch took a job in Las Vegas, the most evil place in America. So why haven't we formed a lynch mob with pitchforks and torches and hunted her down yet?

2. Martin Short: This "Funny Man" left his job and home in Canada and moved down to that third layer of hell known as Hollywood. This demonic terrorist has spent over 20 years in hell laughing it up with some of the most elitist bastards in all the world.

3. Wayne Gretzky: He should be public enemy number one for the crap he has pulled. Not only did he leave Canada to move to the US, but he did it to play Canada's national sport. That should be a slap in the face to all Canadians. Then it gets even worse, this self-centred egotistical bastard then went into coaching. So where did he decide to do all of his coaching, well Phoenix Arizona that's where. What, Canada wasn't good enough for you Wayne. Then he had a chance for redemption. Jim Balsillie wants to buy the Phoenix Coyotes and move them to Hamilton. Now a true Canadian would support the chance to return home to his country but what does he do, he publicly states that he wants to stay in America and is against moving Canada's national sport back home as well.

4. Marc Garneau: Well he is not as bad as OsamaWayne Al-Gretzky, and I am still not sure what to call him. This Non-Canadian did not only leave Canada, he had the Gall to even leave the Planet Earth. Does this mean that he is no longer human, because humans don't leave the Planet Earth. So this Evil Alien Terrorist hated Canada so much, he would rather go to a place with no oxygen, and enough radiation to kill then live in the greatest nation ever.

These people should be ashamed of themselves. We should also put them on terrorist watch lists, just so they can get what is coming to them for being so non-Canadian.

Liberal Convention '09

Hey peeps, I know I haven't been on in ages but I decided to try to stay on for at least the next few days and blog about the convention. I just finished my registration and have my ballot ready for the weekend. I only have a few minutes so I will keep on posting throughout the weekend in small bursts like this.

Attention Peeps in the Federal Government

I noticed this before I stopped posting on my blog before, but I am going to comment on it again. It seems that quite a few people in the federal government read my little blog and I was wondering who in the big house is reading it. I was wondering if it is fellow Liberals reading my blog and wondering if free speech was a good thing, or is it the NDP trying to get an idea, or is it the Bloc reaffirming their ideals on separating from Canada, or is it the Emo's (see my blogs tagline or this post) grabbing evidence so I get put on a terrorist no-fly list. We all know you are reading it, just let us know who you are, there are several from the House of Commons, a few from GTIS, some from the Privy Council, we even got the Department of Foreign Affairs. Just let me know who you are, and in case you aren't actually an important figure (ie. MP, higher up in their party) then just let us know your affiliation with your party. I am just sooooooo god damn curious about who you people actually are. You can say whatever you want about me or my blog as this is a nation of free speech.
