This article got me thinking: Why the hell haven't I seen a Globe & Mail reporter ask Danny Williams if he supports the Liberal's Green Shaft plan? Has Danny seen the Liberal Green Shaft Calculator? Has any reporter from the Globe & Mail seen it? Has any reporter from the Toronto Star seen it? Does anybody have a friggin' clue how the hell this tax rebate works? I know that I sure as heck don't. It's a lovely calculator, but without giving me the actual tax savings plan, how can I be sure that their numbers are correct? Just for shits 'n' giggles, try to calculate the gas savings by switching from a Conservative car to a Liberal car without knowing the MPG ratings. Danny boy, you may've bitten off your nose to spite your face. Anyway now you're cornered. You can either urge people to vote NDP, which are against big business (Oil, in case you haven't figured it out) or Liberal (Green Shaft= Tax the living hell out of anybody that has anything to do with oil) or Green Party (Oil? What the hell are we still using oil for?) or last but not least Bloc Quebecois (We want to separate and give you our debt to Canada. You've got oil now, you can afford it!) I'm surprised that I haven't seen any headlines about Danny's response to the Green Shaft. If he thinks that the Conservative's have treated him unfairly, who exactly does he think is going to give Newfoundland & Labradorians the respect that they have spent generations earning? Guess I must've been working a little too much. After some research, I discovered that I'm late to the barbecue.

I've always believed that it made more sense to be vigilant of the lies and propaganda emanating from lefties than attacking those whose end-goal is the same as yours. You know, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"? There appears to be an exception here (and here). To get to the point, Raphael Alexander has written six paragraphs to describe a bone of contention against one blogger that could have easily been summed up in one sentence: She has a nose for shit-disturbing, and she's quite good at it. Raphael, I believe your heart is in the right place. Attacking fellow bloggers just because they don't know or don't care to articulate themselves as politely as you imagine yourself doing is futile and a waste of talent, and in the process you have come out looking no better than those whose writing styles you disagree with. You look like a shit disturber yourself. Kinda like me at the moment. I hope you don't mind me quoting your reference to Kathie Shaidle or Jason Cherniak, Raphael: "I don't read either blog for rather obvious reasons." Just for the record, I very rarely read them either. Which is why I don't write whole blog posts about them. I do read yours though, and I have to admit that I'm having difficulty understanding why you have such hatred against bloggers whose writings you so strongly disagree with. If you don't like them, stop reading them! It's that simple. Also for the record, I personally don't care if you are or aren't a Liberal. As long as you vote Conservative, I don't care what you call yourself. I'm very liberal myself but vote Conservative because I believe that they are the most capable of protecting liberalism. I should rewrite the opening sentence, but it's my turn to be stupid now.

The following is from the Government Of Canada News Centre: The Government of Canada Supports Shag Harbour Incident Society SHAG HARBOUR, Nova Scotia, August 5, 2008 - Residents and visitors to Shag Harbour will have the opportunity to take part in the Shag Harbour Incident Festival, thanks to an investment by the Government of Canada. Gerald Keddy, Member of Parliament (South Shore-St. Margaret's), on behalf of the Honourable Josée Verner, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Status of Women and Minister for La Francophonie, today announced funding for the Shag Harbour Incident Society. Funding of $2,000 will help the Society organize the Shag Harbour Incident Festival, which will commemorate the famous Shag Harbour Incident, a historical and well documented sighting of an unidentified flying object in the skies above Shag Harbour which later crashed in nearby waters. Since the sighting in 1967, the area has attracted numerous visitors and researchers. Background from On This Day: 1967 - At 11:20 p.m. Atlantic Daylight Time at least one and most likely two separate UFOs dove or crashed into the ocean near Bon Portage Island, in the area of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada. There were at least a dozen independent witnesses to the event. Canadian Navy divers searched the area for three days but found nothing. This followed a series of six UFO sightings across Quebec and Nova Scotia beginning at 7:19 p.m., when Air Canada Captain Pierre Guy Charbonneau, flying between Sherbrooke and St. Jean, sighted an orange rectangular object followed by a series of smaller lights, followed by a sizeable explosion near the large object that turned into a big white ball-shaped cloud. The cloud turned red, then violet, and then blue. Two minutes later there was another explosion that turned into a second sphere which was orange in color. Like the first one it too eventually faded to blue. The smaller lights on the "kite tail" broke formation with the rectangular object and began to dance around the spheres like fireflies. (Sources: Yarmouth Light Herald, October 12, 1967; Ivan T. Sanderson, Invisible Residents, pp. 44-45; Don Ledger & Chris Styles, Dark Object: The world's only government documented UFO crash, pp. 9-13; 28-50, 151-162). Considering the level of disclosure by the governments of France, Brasil, Mexico, England and too many others to mention, it's good to see our government lend some legitamacy to the question of whether or not we're alone in the universe. If you can take a minute to consider that respected people such as Sen Barry Goldwater, Dr Edgar Mitchell; Astronauts L Gordon Cooper, John Glenn and Neil Armstrong; Dr Wernher von Braun, Major Florenz Mansmann, ScO Clark C. McClelland and too many others to mention have already given us a pretty definitive answer to that question, then perhaps it's time for the governments of America and Canada to follow suit. h/t National Newswatch
