How about those Canucks eh!

Well, I received my mail in HST ballot in the mail today, filled it out, sealed it up and mailed it back, it`s real easy, tear the ballot along the perforation, mark a big X in the yes circle, place your ballot in the security envelope, put your date of birth and signature on the registration envelope, place the security envelope in the registration envelope, seal it shut, ...finally, place the registration envelope(which contains the security envelope) in the yellow envelope, postage is pre-paid, ....real easy, just make sure you sign and put your date of birth on the registration envelope...

How many of you are sick n tired of the Vancouver riot story, will it ever end, please let it end, all the back n forth and finger pointing, I could rip each and everyone of them, Chief Chewy, juice boy, Susan Blab Anton, Christy Clark, councilors and supply companies, by supply companies meaning...Like the Super Save group, one might want to check out their porta john rental and fencing divisions.....They sure love Chief Chewy and the boys in their radio ads, hmmm, I wonder who decides who gets the city contracts, hmmm, less police but more fence rentals, bigger crowds and even more fencing....Never mind, I was just musing....

As you know I didn`t jump on the riot story, the reason was simple, it was a non story, in a nutshell both the city of Vancouver and the Province rolled the dice and cheaped out on policing costs and failed to adequately secure large crowds....It really is that simple, on the bright side no one was killed, ....As for the financial costs and losses to local business, again the answer is simple, the City of Vancouver and the Province failed to properly police the gatherings, the amount of money saved by the city and the Province by not funding proper police numbers is more than enough to pay the damages...For if the City and Province had sufficient police numbers through out the Canuck playoff run they would have spent at least $5 million more dollars...Both the city and Province,especially the Province made tens of $millions on booze sales....Pony up some cash and let`s move on...

The people in charge were idiots, think about this scenario for game 7.....

Transit, buses, the city, the Province allowed drinking youths to flood the city while intoxicated game after game, ...And then when we get to the final game 7 in Vancouver, you invite everyone for a party, you shut down all the near-by liquor stores at 4:00pm....So here`s the deal, the youth did several things, they know police were dumping out 1000s of drinks...The youth know the liquor stores are shutting down at 4:00pm....So as a youth what do you do?....

Well, two things, number 1 is 1000s got plastered before they got into Vancouver.....Others brought booze, not a case of beer that you can`t hide but bottles of hard booze......The kids know the game....So now you have thousands of drunks, thousands of drunks who get their booze poured out!!!!, 1000s of drunks who had their booze poured out and now there is no liquor store to buy more!....I can`t think of anything more likely to set off a riot then by allowing 10s of 1000s of kids to show up drunk, confiscate their booze and cut off the supply....Yikes.

 It really is that simple, the city/town/province fostered a culture of boozy Canuck parties,  Vancouver city should have been an alcohol free zone, but business, the Province, the city wanted the cash receipts and booze pays, they rolled the dice, all of them, if the police screamed loud they could have got more resources, .....

Everyone gets blamed.....Brainiacs, invite 150,000 young people for a booze up, take their booze, tell them your going to take the booze, tell them the liquor stores are closed, sheesh, everyone and their dog had a bottle, what do you do with an angry half-drunk male after you dump out his half-empty jug of tequila? ....You watch him smash windows and light fires....

I found the Pamela Martin hiring as "outreach" interesting, no so much the blatant patronage appointment but how the media dealt with it....

Last Friday evening Gord MacDonald on CKNW... Gord Did a rant on Pamela Martin, it went something like this...I`m paraphrasing.... 

She`s a tele-prompter reader, $130 K for outreach, what about the hundreds of public affair employees, what about Christy Clark being honest, answer questions, stop hiding public reports, forget wasting money on another patronage appointment...

Gord MacDonald`s  rant went something like that, no big deal but....But on Monday following Bill Good did his morning editorial, ...There is a so-called code in journalism and media, you never criticize your own, CTV doesn`t slag Global, the Province newspaper doesn`t bad mouth the Vancouver Sun, and individual celebs never criticize each other, especially at the same station....Bill Good broke that rule on Monday when he ripped Gord MacDonald from end to end over his mild critique of Pamela Martin........Bill Good is so far gone, he went for long lunches with Pamela Martin several times before last week`s Gord MacDonald rant, and guess what.....

Today on the Bill Good show he did a segment on CCTV in Vancouver, how you get filmed everywhere you go, is this a good thing or bad, is getting filmed in public without your knowledge acceptable, so anyway, Billy Boy takes some calls and...


A caller says....I`m paraphrasing again....Mr. Good, these cameras film everything, even famous people getting caught doing things in private by these cameras, sometimes these films can be worth money.......


To which Bill Good responded, .."Yea, I went for lunch with Pamela Martin yesterday"snip


Don`t get me wrong, Bill Good was disturbed by the call, it also goes right to the heart of Bill Good`s deceptions, Bill Good is a Sunshine coast neighbor and friend of Gordon Campbell, his bias is plain to see, but now he`s criticizing fellow employees for their point of view about his friend Pamela Martin...Friends, Bill Good responded like a man defending his girlfriend or lover,...It`s a little rich how he promotes Pamela Martin on air, both pre-Christy Clark and post Christy Clark....If Bill Good can`t even act with a little journalistic integrity he should be removed from the air, it`s so wrong, like Sean Leslie`s wife making over $100 K per year working for Christy Clark at the BC PAB....I guess Bill Good`s wife is still overseas


The point I`m trying to make is priorities, in Greece teachers make less than a $1000 euros per month, they have had no raise in a decade, pensions are being slashed, youth unemployment is a staggering 40%...Their VAT tax is being raised on everything, on food it`s rising from 15% to 23%....Workers are having everything stripped away, millions in the United Kingdom are striking against the same draconian cuts, ....Do you know....The Greek national debt works out to....$44 thousand dollars for every man/woman and child....In the USA ... The American national debt works out to $46 thousand dollars in debt for every man/woman and child.....There are 11 million Greeks and over 300 million Americans...Neither will ever pay their debt but who decides whose worthless paper gets honoured and whose doesn`t!....For the sake of $44 K per person debt the Greek Government sold them out for nothing, The Greeks will still default on their debt...You can`t slash wages, take away small pensions, cut services and expect anyone will have any money to propel their economy forward...It`s a recipe for disaster.


In India, one of our trading partners is displacing millions of people from the farmlands in a state-run land acquisition scam, generations of farmers are having their land stolen for a standard $6 dollars per acre, the land is being expropriated for manufacturing and endless strip malls, the land acquisition act is being used as a hammer, similar to the USA`s "eminent Domain" act....Taking private land for the public good, in India the public good is the corporations, it`s a total unreported human tragedy that has roots right here in BC

Meanwhile three reactors in Japan are in full meltdown hot fleas have been consumed by everyone on the west coast of North America, billions of gallons of water have been turned into super heated radioactive steam ...That steam went into the west flowing jet stream and tradewinds, 1000s of square miles are dead forever, more farmland gone....There will be cascading cancers of all types in the future, this Fukushima disaster is 10 times worse than Chernobyl in Russia....But nobody is talking about it, everyone is too busy talking about the Vancouver drunkfest lame riot....

Stephen Harper and the assault against labour unions, Canada post, Air Canada, BC teachers, BC Paramedics, austerity measures, Governments of all stripes are waging war on the masses because the bankers and investors gambled away $trillions of dollars, these Government bail outs, $14 trillion dollars in bail out programs ....Your future, your children`s future has been sold out....We have a chance right now to say no the the HST.....Wages are going down, teachers, police, fire, paramedics, mailmen/woman, air flight staff, seniors care staff, all these workers and more are under attack, vilified, between right wing Governments, Jack Mintz, the Fraser institute these people have been marginalized...


Meanwhile, I`m gonna keep talking about issues that matter, corruption, taxation, human tragedy, the Vancouver riot is over...The Auditor General John Doyle has been granted documents on the Basi/Virk BC Rail sandal.....The BC Hydro review is complete, let`s here the bad news and just how big the proposed rate increases are....

The Province isn`t even going to talk too the teachers until the end of August, thus guaranteeing a strike, a Government imposed strike, the Province should be addressing class sizes, ...The Supreme court slammed the BC Liberals over what they imposed in 2002 while Christy Clark was education minister...

We are in a class war folks, we must launch the first attack, we start with the HST, then we change Government...

Tell the media, we don`t want anymore riot, no more hockey, no more families first slogans, no more stickmen ads...

Tell them we want The Straight Goods

Wadda pack of shit. You sure love to spew the MSM Big Oil supported Denier nonsense don't you.This has to be the dumbest commentary I've seen from you in years.

3 reactors in Japan have melted down some fuel rods all contained in the reactor vessel except for some 1 inch control rod access shafts. Full meltdown not.

All of the long term environment damage at Fukusima was from the massive chemical/refinery fire that burned for weeks spewing deadly forever chemicals. There is no such damage from radiation leaks outside the plant.

Folks in Ramsar,Iran with peak yearly dose of 260 mSv have a lower incidence of cancer than average. Other studies have found the same results in folks that lived in radiation environments as high as 900 mSV.

All emissions in the FuKushima area, outside the plant itself are an order of magnitude below this range.

Chernobyl killed 56 people and the radiation released was far in excess and far deadlier than the releases from Fukushima with no deaths. WHO figures guess that there may be 4000 somewhat advanced cancer deaths from the Chernobly accident. The area right up to the Chernobyl sarcophagus itself is teeming with wildlife and folks are illegally settling in.

The 10 times worse statement has to be dumbest comment from you in years.

Fukushima Nuclear Crisis Gets Worse
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The prospect for defusing the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant of Japan is still gloomy.

Recently the plant began operating equipment to decontaminate radioactive substances from water. But the radiation level in the vicinity of the absorption tower was so high that the plant could not but stop the operation in less than five hours.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. predicts the tower might have absorbed oil or mud containing radioactive material more than expected.

430 mSv radiation per hour was detected in the basement of Reactor No. 2 building of the power plant.

The radioactive contamination fear is rising nationwide.

The Tokyo Shimbun reported radioactive cesium exceeding the allowed level set by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forest and Fisheries was detected in feed grass collected in Nasusiobara City and Nasu chon, Tochigi Prefecture.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology opened to public a map showing the soil contamination in which cesium stored in the surface of soil was measured within 100-200km radius from the troubled power plant.

According to it, radioactive cesium was found 100,000-300,000 Bq per a square meter of soil in Tochigi Prefecture neighboring Fukushima Prefecture and the north of Ibaraki Prefecture. This proved that radiation contamination is reaching the capital.

Meanwhile, a research group of a university in Japan released a study results saying lots of radiation material that leaked into the air following the accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant flew to Europe by a jet stream

Don`t go there Seth...Fukushima have withheld information from the world..

Radioactive ocean hot spots..Ocean life affected, BC Salmon affected..

I could give a rats ass about how Fukushima should have been higher than a tsunami storm surge...

Maybe we will all adapt to higher radiation, who knows...

The Japanese people are on the hook for $200 billion in clean up costs, a productive food area gone...

This story wasn`t about good or bad nuclear energy...

This post was about the REAL NEWS..Not Vancouver drunks, not about Torres getting traded, my post was about dumbing down the public while big stories come and go...

Yes, I understand you are mad about Harper giving away our nuclear industry to SNC Lavalin...That`s only the beginning with Harper..

Watch Greece, everything is being sold, Greece is no longer a country, they are a subsidiary of mother corp, a country run by the money lenders..Canada`s next...

Sorry Seth...This post has nothing to do with Nuclear energy

More f'ing nonsense. High radiation levels are to be expected in the plant.

"100,000-300,000 Bq per a square meter of soil in Tochigi " is barely above the legal limit and it has a half life of days. It's down to nothing now. Why do you even bother writing about shit you know nothing about.

The cleanup cost at Fukishimi is $15B or less and that is all at the plant. Your $200B comes from Greenpeace nonsense.

It now appears you are a Global Warming Denier as well? You seem to be buying into the junk science they put out.

Information that you download from activist sources on the alternet is usually garbage.

paisley said...

I would say that someone isn't doing their home work Seth. Being you. The Japanese government has not been providing accurate information from day one. Nor have the parties that have a stake in the nuclear industry. The Canadian government had some portable radiation detectors set up in BC to monitor fall out from Japan. What the media failed to tell you was that they operated for two weeks and quietly shut them down after that. Now if there was no radiation fallout to worry about one would think the smart thing to do is leave them set up and after a time it could be easily pointed out "see all our reading are well below acceptable levels and this has not been a serious concern at all". If you don't have the equipment measuring the radiation fall out then there is nothing to report. Packing up the equipment and moving it away tells me one thing. A good start for a cover up and lets the government off the hook so they can claim, "we knew nothing".
All during the same time period, certain locations containing the radiation monitoring equipment in the US mysteriously went inoperable and there has been no publicly accessable data like there had been previous to the Fukushima accident.
There has been a concerted effort by the MSM to down play this nuclear incident and it started with FOX announcing that they would not show certain "Simpsons" episodes just after the Fukushima incident claiming that it would be insensitive to the Japanese to air them. These guys don't do anything that isn't corporately or politically motivated, out of sight out of mind. I'm betting that the owners of the six corporations that control 80% of the media in the states are heavily invested in the nuclear industry.
Aside from the bullshit that the MSM reports or the information that they choose not to share I must conclude from other independent information sources and will agree with Grant that this accident is much worse than the Russian episode and yes Japan has three nuclear reactors that are melting down that have not ceased spewing radioactive material into the atmosphere and the ocean. The show is far from over for many lifetimes. The best thing that could happen now is if one of the flooded reactors in the US has a melt down, poisons the American bread basket and then people could finally stop being retards by advocating building these things.

Not posting your last comment Seth..

You say no one has died at Fukushima?

You are wrong, many workers died and or are dying very fast...

Anyone who can downplay this accident, 1000s of square miles..uninhabitable...Radioactive ocean hotspots...Hot fleas in North America...

Billions of gallons of radioactive steam, billions of gallons liquid radioactive water affecting migrating ground water...

Go ahead Seth...Tell the hundreds of thousands removed from their homes, tell the farmers whose land is dead, tell the families whose livlihood is gone.

I`m not arguing with you Seth...


Ask those people Seth...And if it was your back yard, your farm....

You talk like a big time shareholder trying to calm down investors...

I suggest you go to Japan, talk to real people on the ground in nearby counties(prefectors)...

And you might ask what taxpayers are going to pay the estimated $200 billion dollar clean up cost...

Maybe Greece will pay with paper, or Japan, or the USA, or Canada...

For there ain`t one country that has any money, except China..

And if it was half of Vancouver island that was now uninhabitable!

And the Gulf oil leak was a non-event too...

Coo koo...coo..koo....For cocoanuts!

You have lost your perception Seth...


People in other countries are merely numbers to you..They are not human, no tears, no blood, merely electricity using customers..


That is what`s really sad...


Maybe you should go Royal Watching like the rest of the lame stream media!

Cut n pasted from the above link___________________

In an interview with Alfred Webre, Leuren Moret highlights two prominent nuclear radiation scientists who have now publicly declared that the northern 1/3 part of Japan has become uninhabitable because of radiation due to the Fukushima March 11, 2011 quake/nuke false flag operation, and should be evacuated.

One of the radiation experts, Dr. Chris Busby, is a UK Govt. and European Parliament Low Level Radiation Expert. Dr. Busby developed the first radiation risk model to challenge the US government’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki studies model that underestimated internal exposure risk by a factor of 1000. Dr. Busby has conducted research on Sellafield nuke plant contamination and health risks, depleted uranium exposures in the Middle East, Yugoslavia, C. Asia, and Fukushima disaster.

The other radiation expert, Marion Fulk, is a Manhattan Project scientist who made the US hydrogen bomb work. Mr. Fulk was the radiation rainout/snowout expert for the US nuclear weapons program during atmospheric testing. He has trained and mentored Leuren Moret for 11 years on radiation issues such as the environmental and biological effects of ionizing radiation.

In a March 30, 2011 interview on Russia Today with Dr. Chris Busby. Dr. Busby declared that the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdowns will result in at least 417,000 new cancers.
