Of real leaders and stinky pools

Funny how a headline pertaining to the same story can be torqued in so many different ways.

Anyway, The Wudrick Blog contains an excellent analysis. Just don't drink yellow beverages and read at the same time.

This, of course, was predictable - Dion condemns PM's climate change stance.

Hunter - Media uses Lethal Weapon!

Interesting comments at the end of this CTV report. (H/T Trusty Tory).

Sunday Update: Not a lot of time to blog today, but please check out Lorrie Goldstein's, "What about all that hot air?".

One of the most commonsense, non-partisan editorials I've read in a long time.

Since CM is enabled, you may not see your comment posted for a while. Don't worry, it will show up sometime, unless your name is Red Tory or Kevron.

Star - Won't repeat Kyoto error: PM

I just watched Peter VanLoan on Focus Ontario talking about Dalton McGuinty's complaints that 10 more seats in the leg. isn't enough and I only have this to say.


He could easily beat McGuinty. He's level-headed, a good speaker, intelligent...and a really nice guy who relates well to the regular citizenry.

Who doesn't love Barney Rubble?

Whata campaign that would be...

Barney vs. Norman

Bring it on!!

I missed Focus Ontario. I must remember to watch that.

Barney vs. Norman

lol! I watched Psycho again the other night. Wow, that thing creeped me out! The resemblance is just uncanny.

If only the Harpers were to name one of their stray cats Kyoto, all would be forgiven.... it really is that easy.

maryT said...

Didn't all the countries agree with PMSH, so didn't dion diss all the members of the organization.
Of course dion is hard of hearing so maybe didn't get the facts.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Mary, he probably thinks he has an issue to run with now.

Go, Stephane, go! Bring down the government now!!

Anybody who commends Harper here is missing the point entirely. Last time I checked a “declaration” wasn’t a protocol, more a statement on spirit. If Harper agreed to the wording, all he essentially says is we need hard targets. Nothing about other countries, all the major emitters, that is just a smokescreen for inaction. The declaration was simply a statement on intent, not all this other garbage people are interjecting to distract. Do you support hard targets? A declaration is not a legally binding international agreement, nor did it have any specifics whatsoever, as a matter of fact quite a timid comminique. The fact that Harper resisted such a symbolic gesture speaks volumes about the ruse, the public relations exercise, with no substance whatsoever.

Oh, and before some wingnut starts with Harper, all I ask is they produce one independent source, whether domestic or abroad, that has validated the claims made by Baird and Harper. Just one supporter, one study? Face it, the guy, his plan, are a complete joke. Harper will finally be exposed in Bali, with no allies to mask the dishonesty. If you are serious, you sign the mostly meaningless declaration, the fact you can’t, and claim some higher goal, is just complete and utter rubbish.

Exposed for what exactly stevie?
Perhaps someone who hasn't been duped by Al Gore?

Dion is never at home. He doesn't feed his cat, and I hear it doesn't even like him. (real conservative)

hunter said...

Thanks for the link to my site. Now I understand why my traffic has increased ten fold!

Joanne (True Blue) said...

lol! Hunter, my pleasure. That was a good catch.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Steve, you posted the exact same comment at Trusty Tory.

Now I understand why editors don't like it when you send the exact same letter to three or four different newspapers.

It smacks of either laziness or some kind of misguided arrogance.

If you're going to copy & paste a comment to several blogs, at least own up to it, and say that you think what you wrote is so amazing that you have to share it everywhere.

Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh, but I'm tired of this kind of thing.

Stevie has been posting that comment all over the blog, unfortunately, when he asks questions and then answers are given, he does not acknowledge those.

so... Steve - is it just a drive by comment or perhaps the answers given have satisfied you?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

drive by comment

Ha! Good one.

Well, Stevie's been outed, in any case. Not worth responding to.

If canadians were so concerned about global warming, cutting ghg etc, why are numerous houses already lit up for Christmas. In our area it seems lights are up at least 2 wks earlier than usual.

Anonymous said...

canned comments like Stevies have the same added value as chain letters/mail.....absolutely zero.

Maybe it's something characteristic of the lemmingesque cookie-cutter responses we see so often on blogs.

I agree too that it's a lazy way out...and usually someone's party line.

this is a late response to the first post. Saw Focus Ontario too, and I have to agree that Peter Van Loan is a great idea to take on the McWimpy Liberals provincially.

Ironically, Warren Kinsella's poking fun at Peter's cartoon alias actually plays in Peter's favour. Will we see more from Kinsella when he figures that out?

On another topic - Kinsella's "War Room" is a really good book.

Note to provincial tories - PUT IT ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST

Give it up, Kevron.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Mary T - Canadians want the government to do their sacrificing for them.

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Kinsella's "War Room" is a really good book.

I have it on a request list at the local library. That way, I'm not paying the Prince of Darkness in order to read his book.
