Headlines for groundhogs day

The U.S. fashion police take their job very seriously. The have outlawed T shirts and sweatshirt with messages. They even dragged two women out for breaking the fashion law. Frumpy is no crime, is it? I saw those shirts and they did not offend me but, isn't that State of the union an occation to dress up?

Well it looks like Canada will have an early spring. Yeah!
The US north east looks like it will have 6 more weeks. aaaw too bad!

The CRTC is looking for Canadian content in Drama Series. So if you have an idea for a Canadian drama write it up! They would buy anything at this point. I can think of lots of comedy ideas... But drama, I will leave it to others.
I have an idea for a comedy sci fi show, because that is what I want to see on Canadian TV. Who needs more drama?
CSI Toronto? No. CSI Moncton? hmmm no.


Be creative

Cindy Sheehan has not been a figure of "considerable sympathy." In most of America, Cindy Sheehan has been an exploited idiot, a useful idiot and a tool for people in the media and the American left; she was just the latest in a long line of issues, people, that came along at a convenient time to try to rip and destroy George W. Bush and his policies and the war on terror and the war in Iraq. There was never any really affection for her. She was funded and created essentially by a PR firm out in California. She's always been a myth! It's always been known she's a hypocrite. It's always been known that the president did have a meeting with her. It's always been known the president was very gracious to her. She is not a person of "considerable sympathy" in the sense that you mean it. If she has any sympathy, it's people simply feel sorry for her because of how she has been exploited and made to look like an idiot and a pool by the people who claim to have all this attachment, affection and love for her.

"The night of President Bush's State of the Union message, she was ousted from the House visitors' gallery for wearing a T-shirt ... with an antiwar slogan, '2,245 dead. How many more?'" There were two other people thrown out that night. One of them was the wife of a Republican member of Congress, C. W. "Bill" Young or some such guy, and she was wearing a pro-war T-shirt. They threw her out, too. Now the Capitol Hill police apologized to Cindy Sheehan. She was released. The charging are being dismissed. Nobody has any ill will over this. The guy that runs the capitol police said, "It's my fault; I didn't properly brief my officers. That's not the kind of thing for which we would automatically throw people out. We should have given her the chance to cover it up first, not just ripped her out of there," blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, as Mr. McFeatters writes, Cindy Sheehan "apparently does like living in a country that allows frivolous lawsuits, because she plans to file one. Like many driven people in pursuit of a cause, Sheehan tends to conflate great issues of principle with her own scrapes with reality.
"The fact is, she was in the House by invitation, not right, and she could have stood up and applauded in approval or sat on her hands and glowered as the president spoke. But the House sets its own rules and even the president must abide by them." The president
cannot come on the House floor unless he is invited and has escort. "As it happens, Sheehan's dustup came with the news that Stew Albert had died, the last and least-known of a trio of antiwar protesters that included Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman. They could be every bit as self-righteous as Sheehan, but they were also inventive, imaginative and very amusing. By way of protest, they once organized 50,000 people to levitate the Pentagon -- for which they had an official permit. They brought the New York Stock Exchange to a halt by showering the trading floor with dollar bills.

"In 1968, they nominated a pig for president.... Sheehan came to prominence last summer when she camped out near Bush's Texas ranch. At first, the protest, with crosses symbolizing the war dead, was rather poignant. But as the month wore on, Sheehan's insistence that she, personally, had to meet the president became disturbing.... Sheehan's strange quest isn't really about the war, Iraq or Bush. Maybe it's all about Cindy Sheehan." So she has been slapped down in the mainstream media because even now, or final now they are beginning to realize that she is an embarrassment and a distraction, and is causing harm to whatever their asinine cause is. But this is not going to -- this McFeatters guy is going to be targeted. He's going to be. The left websites are going to wish him death. They're going to hope he gets cancer. They're going to hope he drowns, and they're going to run Cindy for senator, whatever. It's going to be fun to watch this, folks. The crackup on the left continues.

Re Cindy Sheehan, Well I know about grief and I can't judge people who are going through it. So I look on the lighter side of life.

I choose to be seemingly oblivious on purpose. I don't mind hearing your views though.
