Duceppe today challenged P.M. Harper to step in the ring. There won't be a fight though as Duceppe's kind are not willing to actually FIGHT for anything. They would rather leave the hard work to others and simply enjoy the benefits that come from that work. All talk, no action is their motto.
Does Duceppe realize how this looks to the rest of the country? It is quite alright for soldiers to die in a war just as long as they are not Quebec soldiers. How pathetic. Duceppe should note that they are not in the Quebec unarmed farces. They are in the Canadian Armed Forces. They are not equipped with white flags.
It sure is nice to have a PM with a bit of a spine. I was really tired of all the jelly fish we had in that office for so long.
Harper will smack down Duceppe when they get back to the house. Of that I am fairly certain.
Now if we could only get some judges with some common sense as well as spines maybe we can get this country back on the RIGHT track...

Actually it ended a week ago. It has taken me a week to recover. It is amazing how much work there is to do around a place after it has been neglected for just two weeks. I came back to a jungle of a yard. The grass was so long that I had to cut it twice to get it back to a normal 3 inch lush carpet. A tree out front that I had to cut down sprouted spurs all over the front lawn that had all grown over a foot in height. then there was the dreaded dandelions and other wonderful weeds. I had them completely under control before I left. Now... not so much... sigh... Then there is the matter of irresponsible pet owners...
It seems that my front and side yard became the bathroom for all the pets in the neighborhood. Thank god my back yard is fenced off, I can't imagine the clean up I would have had to do if it weren't. And people wonder why so many in our communities have problems with people who own pets. With all the gadgets available for cleaning up after your pets there is no excuse for this at all. If you are on a tight budget or simply cheap like me, it is a great way to reuse all those plastic grocery bags. Simply but the bag over your hand like a glove, pick up the "left overs" pull the bag over and off of your hand, tie a knot in the bag a you are done. No mess, no smell, and most noteworthy, no pissed off neighbors! Hell even if you don't want to carry it back home, you can place it in or by a garbage bin. It is still better than the alternative. Be a good parent, take responsibility for your pets!
