Straight Goods and the Near Future, Feets Don`t Fail Us Now!(UPDATED)

There are many stories bubbling to the surface and I would like to share what we think are the latest sizzlers that are coming at us fast.

Let`s start with the NDP and the leadership race, just like the media were lauding Carole James and bemoaning the party for giving her the heave-ho they now are praising the people they want to face in an election, Mike Farnsworth....Adrian Dix....Let me be perfectly clear, both of them are competent able bodies but both carry baggage, Adrian Dix with his "faked" memo in the 90s....Yea, a faked memo, no big deal but the Liberals will make hay with the story, will the public forget, well if Adrian Dix becomes leader it will headline every paper now and election time.....Sorry Adrian, blind loyalty to Glen Clark killed your chances....Mike Farnsworth...Bingo gate, remember my post a few months ago, when Global TV was celebrating 50 years of television news highlights, I forget what day it was, a Thursday I think, Global ran 5 video clips of news highlights from the past 50 years on their morning news....The first clip was of Jas Johal chasing down Mike  Farnsworth  while asking questions on Bingo-gate...Clip 2  was Clifford Robert Olsen arrest, Clip3 was Vander Zalm resigning in so-called disgrace, clip 4 was about Bountiful polygamists and clip 5......Drum roll please, .......

Clip 5 was again Jas Johal chasing down Mike Farnsworth about Bingo gate....Sorry Mike Farnsworth,  your connection with bingo-Gate and Clark along with no ability to free speak in public have cooked your chances, with the media and all those clips of you, your failure to speak in clear terms without using  err and umm every second word......That brings me to John Horgan......If there was one thing the NDP did right in the 90s was the energy file, you never hear any criticism, well look no further than John Horgan...

The man can speak in clear terms while connecting with the public, there are no worries of faked memos or being chased down by Jas Johal over bingo-gate......If an outsider enters and wins, so be it, but as of right now there is only 1 choice......Horgan....John Horgan


We have another problem and his name is Moe Sihota......And....And with Carole James resigning and the NDP constitution there is two problems, according to the Gender and minority mandate the NDP must have at least one female holding one of the top three jobs in the party.....Well let`s address both of those items..

Moe Sihota, you are in your last month of employment, we know your background,  you claimed to be a successful developer, you have had several media shows, your name is synonymous with scandal.....You were very quiet when you became president of the party, you have done nothing but antagonize members, you never divulged your $70 k salary, Bill Teileman gave us that scoop, you have avoided the media, Global, CTV, CKNW, any media you don` t consider friendly you avoid.....During the James revolt where were you Sihota, you were on holidays with your family....You crawl out from under a rock to beak off about Dana Larsen, you end up looking like a fool and have to apologize, you then deny apologizing over your ego....

Can anyone honestly say that they have heard anything positive said about Moe Sihoata  in the MSM ....I haven`t,  as a party can they allow one man, one person in a volunteer unpaid position to the bring the party down!...We can`t sorry Moe Sihota, your walking papers will be delivered to you this month , and the NEW unpaid president can remove the archaic gender profiling and quota system, we will start by removing an ethnic, law breaking ex- con man named Moe Sihota, we kill two birds with one stone....

Well friends, we knew this was going to happen, John Winters, the head of the BC Chamber of Commerce is beating the drum, he is threatening the public that if the HST is removed with the referendum consumer prices will rise , that`s right folks, John Winters on radio today made the ridiculous claim the prices have already fallen because of the HST and if it is removed prices will go up.....Isn`t that funny, what prices have fallen, food, fuel, cable vision, telephone, how about aluminum ingots, gold bars, how about those 2x4s....What prices have fallen...Nothing has fallen, and the threat by Winters is...Giant Companies are expecting their tax credits and if they don`t get them they will retaliate against the public....Well  Mr. Winters, stats Canada results are out and BC leads the country with inflation and the HST is being blamed for the price hikes....Mr. Winters..Get Stuffed asshole! Don`t you threaten us Winters, the big boys can go cry to the BC Liberals, their mess, they can clean it up!

You see folks, those are same people who will be launching a lawsuit against the referendum when the tax gets voted down, Winters again will be doing the Liberals dirty work, we are supposed to trust the BC Liberals that a simple majority will suffice when the likes of Hocstein and Winters are plotting against us, Winters went onto say..."the public are getting to like the HST"......Really Winters, oh we are, especially the threats from you!


May/12/2009.....Our last provincial election, 4 months shy of 2 years and still ..........Kash Heed holds office illegally, Kash Heed`s campaign team broke the law, they libeled, they over spent the election limit, Barinder Sall and Dinesh Khanna lied to the police, they tried to thwart the investigation, Kash Heed`s brother, campaign manager, they all broke the law and it doesn`t matter if Kash Heed himself wants to claim the bambi defense, his team broke the law, over spent, they lied, they cheated, Kash Heed has no legal authority to enter the BC Legislature....You can expect Kash Heed`s forfeit very very soon, in fact if Kash Heed had one ounce of integrity he would resign  ASAP before the special prosecutor strips Kash Heed of his elected status.....(We are waiting special prosecutor)

And I wanted to finish up with Kevin Falcon and Christy Cluck Cluck Clark........I listened to Alise Mills on the Sean Leslie show, those not familiar with Ms Mills, she is a polished BC Liberal speaker and campaigner, she spins, lies her face off  about the 90s and how great the BC Liberals are, she is backing Kevin Falcon`s campaign.....


Well, she had some very interesting things to say yesterday, for weeks and weeks Alise Mills has said that there was no need for a BC Rail inquiry, but yesterday, Alice Mills stated that BC Rail comes up everywhere they go, every other question is about BC Rail, Alise went onto say that the public is asking and deserving of answers on BC Rail, the phony trial, the defense bill, 1 witness out of 40.......Alise Mills pointed to a public inquiry with limited focus.......


Let me be clear, the Straight Goods...The public hates all the BC Liberals, they particularly hate Kevin Falcon, they don`t hate Cluck Cluck quite as much, Kevin Falcon can`t win the leadership on a second ballot, Falcon either hits a home-run or he is out, the Falcon camp is getting very desperate, the Bird man is about to drop a BC Rail overhead poop right on Christy Clark....Falcon is going to call for a public inquiry, you can bet your bottom dollar an inquiry will never happen under any BC Liberal Government but be rest assured that Falcon will be calling for an inquiry, daring Christy Cluck to match the inquiry......Christy Clark is up to her neck in BC Rail, Falcon was merely guilty of closing his eyes and ignoring selling out the people of this great Province....Alise Mills is a professional campaigner, she would not have said anything about an inquiry unless Falcon told her so....You can expect a sudden push by Abbott and Falcon for a public inquiry...


Let`s recap....Two NDP leaders come out later this week, .....Moe Sihota is about to get his walking papers before he destroys the NDP....And unless Moe Sihota removes his junk for a front door trunk, puts on hose and a red dress he is out on two counts.(sorry about that visual shocker)


We have Kash Heed wandering around the city, lost, not a cop, not a politician, a weak man of little moral fiber  waiting to be saved, don`t hold your breath Kash Heed, I hear they need security persons at Alarm Force(never mind, you have to be sharp)..


John Winters, we were told prices would go down and everything has gone up, food prices, meals out, labour, used cars, cable, phone, fuel, 2x4s, everything is up higher in BC than any other Province, the public got whacked with price increases with the HST and big business is going to whack us again when the HST goes, well Mr. Winters, the public doesn`t care, prices go up with the hst, prices go up without the hst, big business cares not, thanks for threatening the public John Winters,,,,I am calling for all BCers to boycott Teck Cominco(no more gold bars for me).....And boycott Rio tinto( Don`t expect me to buy my yearly 5 tons of aluminum)....And surprise surprise, that referendum will be enshrined in law that a simple majority will suffice and the public won`t accept anything less....Let`s just say we don`t trust your ilk Mr. Winters, say hello to Hocstein for me!....We won`t get fooled again Winters


And finally, the BC Rail inquiry, by this time next month every BC Liberal candidate will be calling for an inquiry, Falcon, Abbott, Stilwell  have nothing to lose, they will do and say anything for the leadership nod, Falcon and Abbott will drag BC Rail out for politics, they will attempt to isolate Christy clark on that issue....And it`s up to the public to mandate the scope of the inquiry....The real inquiry won`t start until Horgan is in the big chair!....I`m watching for fireworks, between BC Rail and Manswers on Spike TV (Christy Clark`s favorite TV show, as admitted on radio)..


Between those two items, Cluck Cluck is going to be doing a lot of Duck Duck Ducking and or going mobile

Updated here...As predicted, George Abbott is now calling for a limited public inquiry into the legal settlement of the Basi/Virk  guilty plea....You can expect Kevin Falcon to follow suit....Abbott made the call on the Bill Good show at 10:50 pm....

Spot on! Horgan`s the one and only best choice, I`ve been saying same for years.Moe sihota is a crooked liar, remember what braidwood did to him those many tears ago.

I thought according to the Liberals that BC Rail was dead. Apparently not.

Kash Heed will be out and there will be a byelection to replace him.

John Winter is a right wing asshole. Who cares what he says.

Problems solved.

Elwood said...

Grant, you've convinced me and I've taken out an NDP membership to support John. In fact, when John announces I will be working on his campaign!

John's intelligent, has charisma, he's down to earth and has a good sense of humour. He'll mop the floor with anyone the LIEberals put forward. Woot woot.

Grant G said...

Well 6:29...BC Rail is dead, Falcon merely wants to suggest a inquiry in a attempt to back the cluck cluck into a corner...

Alise Mills would never speak up about an inquiry unless she was ordered to...

Remember what Falcon`s priority is...Become leader no matter what it takes...He can weasel his way out of the inquiry or appoint Wally Oppal and make it go away..

As for Winters...Agreed!

Grant G said...

That`s fantastic Elwood...May I suggest that all the Straight Good contributors take out memberships in the NDP party....

Horgan is our choice, Farnsworth and Dix would best any BC Liberal...However they have baggage..

Time to play smart, time to win...

Well Grant I guess you and I can agree 50/50. I agree 100 % with you on Sahota. But we can disagree on the leader. I'll tease you by not giving the name of my selection but will tell you that if that person is not elected leader the NDP will lose my vote.(should I decide to vote for them in the first place).
You know the work I am doing here, and by the end of January I may have a very explosive post on my blog. Suffice it to say I am very, very frustrated right now. And when I get like this all hell will break loose.

Grant G said...

Well Gary...I know who you are talking about, not sure he wants to run, or should run..

Be rest assured that anyone the NDP puts forward will be better than the BC Liberals...

As for that post....Call me

ron wilton said...

I agree with everything you said throughout the piece except for calling Winters an 'asshole'.
Most people find an asshole useful and my impression of Winters is that he is as useless as tits on a boar.
Please find something less useful than 'asshole' for me to think of him as.

Grant G said...

Well...I agree the "ass" is very useful...A comfy seat and a conduit for which one uses to move shit..

So the second part is perfect.....

CKNW played the Winters threat all day long, it was really funny, ....John Winters started his spiel with...

"It`s not a threat".....Imagine that, Mr. Winters claims it`s not a threat but then threatens us....

What would you call a big business representative who states...

"If the HST is canceled prices will go up"

Sure sounds like a threat to me...

Maybe John Winters needs to be shown the light, the lights leading the pitchfork rebellion...

And no Mr. Winters, the picture in my mind of you being impaled with many pitchforks is not a threat....

Merely pleasant daydreaming!

Gary E said...

Grant. I'll call later. Going fishing right now.
One thing. The photo in this post made me laugh out loud. Here in our area we are in open range country. That means the cattle have the right of way. But a few years back the government decided to remove the "Cattle at large" signs.
But lo and behold, recall comes along and the fight to have them put back ends. The roads are being repaired. Slash is being cut and grass mowed. And you should see all the money being pumped into the riding for programs we have needed for more than 10 years.

CBC did a story on outgoing Arnie and the miserable state of affairs he left behind in California. Like Campbell, he only knew how to steal from the public purse to benefit his friends and insiders and create a faux green persona. The biggest question is will lessons be learned in all of this? That right-wing nutbarism is off course. Or do we have to go to complete destruction and destitution to ever consider a better way?

As for prices going up....just wait until this year unfolds, it is going to be hell. Everything will cost more.

cherylb said...

We can ask all these questions and more of Ms. Clark when she live chats on the Vancouver Sun at noon today. Any bets she won't answer?

Just before the HST was due. Costs went sky high. Supermarkets raised their prices through the roof. Of course, gasoline is always a good price gouge in BC. Rents went up, insurances, condo fees, trailer park pad rents, prescriptions, there were very few goods that didn't go up, right before the HST. If the HST was so good for the BC people, they wouldn't be against it. Where is the money, we were supposed to save, because of the merits of the HST? BC citizens shop in the U.S because of the HST. People close to the Alberta border, shop there because, of the HST. People have gone underground, because of the HST. Tourism took a dive, because of the HST. So did Real Estate. We have all heard, Harper preach about his pet project, global governance and, we have all heard about the Bilderberg group, that meeting Campbell attended. I don't know much about the Bilderberg. I didn't like what I did read, they have to control the masses, so, food costs and the cost of living is going ballistic. It was said, control the food, you control the masses. Some time back, I did read, there was going to be a global shortage of food. That it has already started. Please, tell me this isn't going to happen. But, something is terribly wrong, when someone like Campbell gets away with, out and out corruption, lying, thieving and cheating to win.

===================

I think you're doing for Horgan what Twitter man NeilJEdmondson is doing for Abbott.

Ah, Ms. Mills. A practiced liar, whatever she is currently spewing is no doubt what she fervently believes. Whether or not it's truthful is irrelevant to her. Whether or not she contradicts what she said the day before - meh, that was yesterday! Why radio stations would actually use her as a commentator is anathema to me. An amusing source of spin without any substance whatsoever.
