All the World`s a Stage

I think we should run a little experiment, are we mind readers, do we possess the powers of ESP, no but we are pretty cagey sometimes, here it is, 11:00pm Thursday night,  10 hours before the Cutting ledge show on cknw, you know,  they should change the name of the show 60 minutes with Larry, Curly and Moe.....

OK...Here`s the experiment, picture me wearing a turban, similar to Johnny Carson and Ed Mcmahon doing their Karnac routine, the all seeing seer from the east....What are the three stooges going to talk about tomorrow?

The stooges will start by laughing in tandem at Dana Larsen, Tommy Chong`s name will be brought up and there will be more group chuckles, then Palmer will bring up the name of Nicholas Simons, he will be referred to as  one of the extreme radicals, one of the dissidents, one of the "bakers Dozen" and they won`t stop there, Palmer will describe in detail a heated exchange between Mable Elmore and Nicholas Simons over the James revolt, Baldrey will start chirping how Nicholas Simons got in hot water with a First Nations group over a run of river project in Simons`s riding, ......The stooges will then on message pound away on the giant unrepairable NDP riff and throw blame towards Nicholas and Harry Lali.....

Then it will be Harry Lali`s turn to be ridiculed, David Schrek`s name will be brought up as they tear Lali down, they will talk about Lali wanting blood on the convention floor, how he wants the gender rules canceled, and they too will call Harry a dissident, a radical, a back stabbing heathen, Baldrey will then talk about how no females have thrown their hat in the ring for the NDP, to which Bill good will pipe up with ...Why would one, look how they treated the last female leader....Cue-up another group laugh......


By now it`s 9:20 AM....The remaining 10 minutes the stooges will talk about the other outsiders who snubbed the NDP, Peter Julian and George Hayman, Baldrey will then chirp in with, pot heads, radicals and extreme left wing ideologues, no wants to take the reins of the NDP.....They will then finish off the first half hour promoting Farnsworth and Dix, Horgan won`t get much play from the stooges because he`s the one the Liberals fear the most!


We here at the Straight Goods know that both Farnsworth and Dix have much baggage that the Liberals will exploit against those two.

The second half hour will start with the stooges talking about the Ida Chong recall and how it will probably fail.....The apologist Baldrey will chime in with, The people have their referendum, Campbell`s resigned, the public has no appetite for recall....Good and Palmer will concur...

Next they will be talking up George Abbott and Christy Clark, they will mention Clark`s endorsements, ...This section of the show will be fluff and puff....The phone lines will open, I expect the first few callers will be laughing at the NDP and reminding us of the 90s....There will be another group stooge laugh.....They will barely even graze over BC Rail....One real caller may sneak through and ask or mention how bad the BC Liberals look on BC Rail to which Baldrey will state how the public isn`t interested in BC Rail, the Liberals have been elected twice since then,.....Then Palmer and Baldrey and Good will all agree with a tightly focused review on the $6million dollar settlement....Not a public inquiry but a review of the policy.....

 There it is folks, that`s tomorrow`s cutting ledge show.....You faithful can grade me later after the show.

I have to say this, I really am getting tired of David Schrek crying wolf, Reid complaining and quoting Palmer like he`s the voice of the NDP...Norman Farrell bashing Nicholas Simons and Harry Lali....

I really believe that the NDP had/has internal rats who sabotaged the NDP in the last election, the advice from Carole`s advisors was brutal, they pulled defeat out of the jaws of victory, ....And the tired old voices can`t stop crying over Carole`s demise, they can`t let go and all they do is feed Les Leyne, Baldrey and Good with more "great rift tragedy" stories....The story has no legs....Yesterday Farrell posted an angry letter to the editor sniping at Nicholas Simons, it was a pathetic letter, amateur, what next, are Reid and Schrek and Farrell going to post articles from the Fraser institute!....

Dana Larsen will do nothing but help the NDP....How stupid can you be, pot isn`t taboo, Dana Larsen and Tommy Chong will help the NDP, they must be treated with respect and not ridicule...... Nicholas Simons....Let`s talk about Simons, the "Big Fight" with Mable Elmore....I can remember during the last election the media and the BC Liberals called Mable a Zionist, a hater, a radical, a religious extremist, oh how quickly the media forgets when it suits their fancy, Mable Elmore would be the one being called the angry violent radical if the roles were reversed....But it seems like Schrek and Farrell have selective memories.....Or perhaps other motives?

Harry Lali, I can remember the last session of the BC Legislature, the HST debates, if I remember correctly Harry Lali had the best speech, the best lines, Palmer and Smyth wrote about his great speech, the media talked about it....Harry Lali was NDP gold then.....Perhaps you people forgot that speech, let me remind you what  Lali`s speech was about...I`m paraphrasing here...

Colin Hansen will be at your wedding collecting his HST, you can`t get married until the HST is paid, at your funeral, you can`t go to the other side until you pay Colin Hansen his HST, Hansen will reach into the coffin and won`t let you go until the HST is paid....

That my friends was a legislative classic, Corky himself would be proud.....We were proud of Harry Lali then, my how short people`s memories are and how times change, now Lali is a jokester, a radical, a back stabbing SOB.....

I don`t think Simons or Lali stand a chance of becoming leader, Schrek, Farrell, Reid, they know that too...So why the hatchet job, I truly believe those three want the NDP to lose the next election so they can have the pleasure of saying....

"I told you so"

Childish amateurs, like their record for success is anything but an fffff...Carole James was a lock if she had one decent advisor last election, she didn`t, she lost again, and the name calling from the criers extends to Bill Teileman, calling Bill the organizer of the revolt....Well Bill T wasn`t the organizer but say what you will...

Bill Teileman is a winner, a winner with Glen Clark, a winner with no STV, a winner with the first successful petition in BC history, Bill walks the walk while the one`s who talk the talk have no trophies, no ribbons, no premierships, only bad advice.

Are they laughing at Moira Stilwell?  Who? Exactly, she`s out....What about Christy Clark falling flat on her face, De Jong, a comedy of errors, De Jong might as well pull the plug now.....Falcon, my gawd, let the bird man run, falcon can`t win a general election, people hate Falcon, it`s a visceral response to Falcon`s demeanor, that leaves George Bobblehead Abbott and the missing 5000 new long term care beds he promised in 2001 along with the HST, Deficit lies while he voted  lock-step with the party.

"I like our Chances"

Those stooges, the cutting ledge stooges, the three above mentioned NDP stooges, they call themselves pundits and politicos, in the know, politically savvy, are you that stupid, can`t you see how the NDP are a lock, can`t you see John Horgan pulling them together and when the polls hit 50% support for the NDP the whole team rallies because they will see victory, they will visualize cabinet posts, almost everyone  in power are in line for a position, how many ministers are there...20 plus ministers...Unity, teamwork, success breeds success and one good poll and the revolt of 2010 is history and victory ours..

Can`t you see the vision, the people of this beautiful Province are starved for a clear fresh voice, that voice doesn`t exist in the Liberal party, John Horgan is that voice....The passion, the vision, the future, those who capitulate die..

We here at the Straight Goods are for life and hope and smiling children, we will never surrender, time to turn the page.

I'm liking your new blog Grant and is a great way to start a new year.

These same players you speak of are really like an old sore that needs to go. The trio of the cutting ledge really repeat the same old stuff over and over and I have not listened to them for a long time.

As for Schrek. Isn't he the one who began the gender equity debate? Sort of as an 'I told you so, now what? Now we don't have a woman and it (the NDP) won't work'. I will be voting for a fighter, not someone who will roll over like a puppy and have a belly rub, for a leader of this province.

Has anyone communicated with the CRTC that the Bill Good Show is an infomercial for the BC Liberals.

Can we get CKNW's license to broadcast revoked?

Grant, I've begun to wonder the same thing about Reid, Schreck and Norm. What is up with that??! I do believe at this point they'd like failure so they can say "I told you so"...at least Reid and Schreck anyway. They are beginning to remind me of petulant children stomping their feet in defiance of their Mom telling them they have to share their toys...and rather than share them, they destroy them. I know that sounds harsh...but it's the distinct impression they're giving me, a very unsettling one.

What were their roles going to be "if" Carole had won the next election? Anyone know? Maybe the temporary loss of future plans has embittered them?

Whatever. Let's just get on with it already! Bury the hatchet, just not in anyone else's back. Get John Horgan up on the podium, he's the only NDP'er I'll vote for. You're right - he scares the crap out of the Libs, because he knows what he knows...and can cite from memory.

An aside...I checked out AGT's site today, and I am LOVING the challenge he's thrown down! I just won't hold my breath to see if she takes it. I could be a long time dead. :))

Leah...Your questions you have about David Schreck were answered by Harry Lali today on cknw...

Check the cknw audio vault January 7th/2011...Cue up 10:00am..Lali is on for 10 minutes, 10:00 am to 10:15 am...

What Harry Lali says will rock your world Leah...And perhaps, just perhaps the faithful will see the light, Schreck has been a NDP back stabber ever since his failed run for office in 1996....His anger is still there, 15 years later and Shreck still holds a grudge...As for Ian Reid, he is directly responsible for Carole James`s demise...

Reid is wallowing in self pity...Begone Reid, you failed....

As for Norman Farrell...Farrell is a brown noser, I know his type, he`s a good writer but his mind is weak, Farrell`s mind can be bent like a gumby toy.

No punches pulled here at the Straight Goods.

Cheers

I like norman farell,but ,he's like the little fat kid in school,he's got some very interesting foresight and insights but then shows that his skin is very thin,why is he so upset did he also have a job along ian,get over it fatso if you don't want to help fck off'let's try to unite this party they're the only chance we have of getting rid of this unholy alliance we have masquerading as a government.

12:10 pm...You are exactly right, the NDP are like a real family, good sons, bad sons, happy daughters, sad daughters..Families fight, that`s life...

The NDP are like the poor family, their laundry is hanging on the clothes line for all to see...The tattered shirts, faded jeans, mismatched socks...

The rich family(BC Liberals) with shuttered windows, quiet, mysterious and with skeletons in every closet...

I`ll take the poor family over Corrupt Liberals in a heart beat...

The point being, because you miss Carole James you are going to vote for known criminals?

Farrell, Schrek and Ian Reid need to grow up...

Isn`t that funny, those three are very old, where did their wisdom go?...Maybe they never ever possessed wisdom..

Let me be perfectly clear, having intelligence is far different than having wisdom...

I offer up wisdom...I might not be a brain surgeon but wisdom trumps intelligence.

Good Day

Your pretty gutsy for a no name person, suffice to say anyone can knock the shit out of whomever they wish particularly when they hide under the anonymous banner.

Henri...He didn`t threaten anyone, his/her point is taken, turn the page, it`s me, Grant Gough who called out Reid/Farrell and Shreck,...Any anger should be addressed to me...

They have to move on or become irrelevant
