They made me take some grammar lessons and now they tell me I write better much.
One of those words is an adverb I think, but I’m not sure which one.
Never minds though, I want to tell you a thought I got the other day.
I was driving in
towards the highway and I sees all those political signs. Looks like they
sprouted up like weeds everywhere. Greenwood
Then suddenly I thought, “They are all like leeches. Trying to out do each other by spending your grandchildren’s money by promising to give you all kind of goodies.
My Lord, they is spending some else’s money before they have a chance to earn it. They know no shame.
Only the People’s Party of
said they would balance the budget in two years. Most others just give you a strange look as
if this was a foreign concept. Canada
Now I read that that Singh fellow spoke well of Fidel Castro. And Trudeau did too. I would have thought the killing of tens of thousands of people might cast a bit of a negative shadow, but apparently not. They honoured him.
Methinks they got to pull the moral box outa their hearts and see if it’s wired right.
But I hears that in
most politicians sold their morals. They don’t need a box no more. Ottawa

We often hear that all cultures are equal and we should embrace them more fully because diversity is our strength.
But truly, not all cultures are equal.
Some cultures allow the eating of their placenta. Others do not participate in this.
Some countries allow the killing of their unborn but 26 countries do not.
Some countries have executions without trials. Others do not.
Some cultures allow freedom of belief while others impose a belief system that all must keep.
One could go on but the point is not all cultures are equal.
They are different but that does not necessarily mean equal.
One should define their own moral values before rushing to embrace.
True strength lies in unity; unity flows from common, deep-rooted, unshakeable values and beliefs.

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary has mail-in balloting, enabling all eligible citizens to exercise their voting right.
Theresa Lenardon, Chief Election Office of the RDKB, says "The right to vote is basic. The mail-in ballot works well, and even it's for just a few, you are still providing that democracy."
The bare truth is if people are not able to vote on the two voting days for whatever reason, and are further denied a mail-in vote, then what is left for them is taxation without any representation.
When the election was over Saturday, the RDKB referendum concerning a bylaw for the Kettle Valley Watershed, about increased taxes and the building of a mini-bureaucracy --- which is what it will eventually become --- mysteriously had no available results.
The referendum results were nowhere to be found.
The same occurred Sunday through early Monday, no matter where you looked.
This also concerned the chief election officer for the RDKB, Theresa Lenardon.
She said that she submitted the results to
at 1145PM Saturday, but the numbers were not reflected on their site right away. After a long day, she thought they might still be busy and she didn't look again until the next day. CivicsInfo BC
Not seeing them there then either, alarmed her also.
She said she couldn’t talk to CivicsInfo BC until Monday, when they corrected their omission. She said simply, “They had made a mistake.”
Knowing that the RDKB had submitted the numbers late-Saturday and that the CivicsInfo site had a mixed-up time reflecting them, satisfies this inquiry.
Seeing the numbers up now causes the interest in this to drain.
Theresa Lenardon was very open, forthcoming, helpful and informative.
The RDKB referendum concerning the Boundary Watershed and increased taxes bylaw passed in the affirmative by a count of 1,535 to 1,369.
Grand Forks, Big White and voted in favour. All other areas responded in the negative. Christina Lake
A reason as to why the results found such delay in finding their way to the public --- or even internal --- domain will follow shortly.
There will also be the complete breakdown of each area as well as the RDKB view on mail-in voting.
$1.1B US loan written off. Oh, heck. What's another billion or so. Everyone knows Canadian budgets balance themselves!

For the record: The Greenwood, BC, City Regime during the election of 2018 refused to allow mail-in balloting though they had full authority to enact it. Any persons qualified to vote who were away for the two available voting days --- for whatever reason --- were thus not able to exercise their right to vote.
The Mayor at the time of this testimonial is Ed Smith. The Council Persons are: Gerry Shaw, Lee Cudworth, Colleen Lang and Jim Nathorst.
This testimonial also declares that in this year of 2018, the right to vote belongs to the people and it is not for any government to impede it in any way.

I went to the BC Cannabis site this morning on its first day of operation. It seemed easy to use; on the surface the delivery price appears reasonable. I selected three products that I could one day have an interest in. All three were marked sold out. Is this a new preview of the Soviet bread lines of long ago?
BC growers who grew the best cannabis in the world --- in great abundance and are now out of business --- has its government saying the chosen products are not available. Not the best of management so far.
There were some products I would have no interest in; making a purchase of them appears flawless.
