Choosing Paths

   I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws - Psalm 119:30 ... Think about it. There are many things in life we can’t choose. We can’t, for example, choose the weather. We can’t control the economy. We can’t choose whether or not we are born with a big nose or blue eyes or a lot of hair ... but we can choose where we spend eternity. The big choice, God leaves to us. - Max Lucado

Politicians Not Connected To People

   MacLean’s magazine was very clear in its coverage that Quebec is the most corrupt province in Canada.
   Politicians, both federal and provincial, howled with fury and outrage that the magazine dared to speak such truth. There were self-righteous screams of xenophobia and bigotry.
   However, a poll shows that most Canadians agree with the story. The portion of Canadians that agreed the most are Quebecers.
   This underlines a major fact in Canada. Politicians have lost all touch with the citizens. They live in a different world.
   How long will it be before Canadian citizens rise up and say enough of the phony self-serving thieves?
   The politicians have their fingers very deep in all our pockets and have made absolutely sure that they have taken good care of themselves, including extremely rich pensions after only six years. 
   They have also made sure that only their people have the guns.

Another Canadian Killer To Hospital

   It is not unusual for Canadian killers to be found troubled in the mind and to receive not guilty verdicts in court because of it. The killing of an Ottawa sportscaster and the beheading on a Greyhound bus come to mind right away.
   The latest murderer is more local.
   A Grand Forks woman who killed her 12-year-old autisic neighbour because she thought the boy’s death would allow for the second coming of Christ was ordered held at least one more year in a psychiatric hospital, the Criminal Justice Branch confirmed Wednesday.
