I did not have Intercourse with that financial group!

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman....."

 -Bill Clinton

ˈintərˌkôrs/

  1. communication or dealings between individuals or groups.
     
    "everyday social intercourse"
    synonyms: dealings, relations, relationships,association, contact

So yes, I am correct, if you thought summin else? Tsk tsk.....  

And this strikes me as a Bill Clinton kinda whopper. 

Canadian Progressives Aggregator....New home....!!!

So, every spring, the flowers start to bloom, the grass grows, the trees bud, and the host for the Canadian progressives Aggregator demands a massive sum of money to host us. (to me its massive, I'm thrift girl.)

This year, we had a whole swath of amazing contributions from the usual suspects, and some new ones! to allow me to pay the massive sum of money for the hosting.

The Harper Gubbermint: Taking the Universality outta Universal health care!

I know, this is a soapbox I have been on for years.
But many have walked on by as if I was one of those crazy street preachers forecasting the end of the world.

Here is where I would say, "I told ya so!" and get some weird perverse pleasure at being right, but I am not feeling the joy.

So what is the Harper Gubbermint planning to do?
Well, as usual it's a backdoor, sneaky kinda deal that pits Canadians against each other. Lord of the flies, divide and conquer. Conservative style!

Buried on page 279 of the 2014 federal budget 

is a measure that will make it next to impossible for provinces to provide health care services on equal terms and conditions. The purpose of this budget item is to strike a blow to the heart and soul of universal health care in Canada.
The Harper government is eliminating the equalization portion of the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) and replacing it with an equal per capita transfer. This means that less populous provinces with relatively larger and more isolated populations will have more and more difficulty delivering more expensive universal health services.

The provinces will be focusing all the money and resources where the main pockets of the population are, kinda near the big cities and the borders. Rural Canada will become much like parts of the world that have no healthcare whatsoever.
The haves and the have nots will be vying for dollars. Who is going to win do you think?

Many of Harpers's supporters in the rural areas will be screwed over too, but it is a major goal of the Harper regime to dismantle all this humanitarian socialist stuff that they hate so much. It's a long range project shall we say, and worth the sacrifice to them me thinks.....

In 1997, when Harper was vice-president of the National Citizens’ Coalition, a group obsessed with privatizing health care, he said: “Well I think it would be a good idea . . . Moving toward alternatives, including those provided by the private sector, is a natural development of our health care system.” In another interview that year, Harper said, ” It’s past time the feds scrapped the Canada Health Act.” (Calgary Herald, May 5, 2005)

The good ol' NCC. They hate just about everything that made this country a great place to live. Or at least their rich funders do.

Dying in this Harper wonderland....

Well, every year here at ACR it is a tradition that a Christmas song gets subverted. (The inspiration is usually the news.) Why should this year be any different?
pale presents,

Dying in this Harper Wonderland.
You all know the tune!

 
And I dedicate this picture to all the members of the Conservative party of canada!

For the CPC 

The phone rings,
you better answer,
collecting bills,
it's like a cancer,
you cant pay a one,
it's really no fun,
owing in this Harper Wonderland

Gone away, are good wages,
losing all,
but in stages,
you can't close that gap,
payday loans are a trap,
living in this Harper wonderland.

If you have two kidney's you can sell one,
to pay the fines imposed by Harper's courts!
The neighbours kids are crying cause they're hungry
but you can watch your Hockey and your porn!

Not my job,
being human,
it doesn't pay, like Bitumen
they own that whole crew,
and now your dog and you too!
owned and pwned in Harper's Wonderland.

In the park the benches are all taken,
but you can always find a cardboard box,
unless the cops decide that you are threatening!
and find yourself receiving taser shocks!

Work three jobs,
and your tired,
Vote "Right to work", to get hired,
You won't need a car.
cause you wont go that far,
unemployed in Harper's Wonderland.

Owing in this Harper wonderland.
Dying, in this Harper Wonderland.

Repost: A Tail Of Two Kitties

A repost from 2007, and 2008. Just to say that at this time of year, and especially this year with the economy still in the trench, there are children who need a "kitty" of their very own.  -pale
KITTY!
kitty, in better days, before the stuffing came out.

Its that time of year again.

I call it the annual stressfest (otherwise known as Christmas.)
Its that time when everyone wants your money: stores, charities....

I bet you can tell by the title that this is probably not a political diary?

No, this is a diary about something entirely different.

Blessed Samhain!

Or, Happy Halloween.
The leaves were swirling all over the yard yesterday as I grabbed one of our old xmas trees out of the back in the guerilla composting pile.

It has been resurrected and once again graces our living room.
