Well well well, so the first day of the spectacle comes to an end, I want to talk about about day one but first, first we have to discuss recent history!
As we all know Gordon Campbell is arrogant,smug, selfish, corrupt and a Habitual Liar, we know he has lied his face off over B.C. Rail, over tearing up contracts, Gordon Campbell tells more lies than Tiger Woods, back in the 90s the NDP came up with a slogan for advertising British Columbia.....The Slogan was....
"Super Natural British Columbia" and I personally loved those ads, the scenery, the NDP along with Tourism BC nailed it, it was the perfect slogan because we are "Super Natural" ....From our Salmon to the Orca to vast river systems,from one end to the other British Columbia is "Super Natural".
But, mentally I can read Gordon Campbell like a book, he is arrogant,smug, selfish, and I imagine Gordon was a greedy child, underneath his skin is a vindictive child mind, now why would I say that, let`s get back to "Super Natural British Columbia"......The greatest and most accurate description of BC, in fact those ads were copied by countries all over the world,but no other country was "super Natural" but BC....So along comes the child mind Gordon Campbell who is greedy,doesn`t like to share and Gordon Campbell went out of his way to destroy "Super Natural British Columbia" not just the slogan but our land,sea and wildlife. And friends, we got rid of super natural BC only to replace it with Gordon Campbell`s slogan....."The best place on earth" .
You see the arrogance in that slogan, but that`s how Gordon Campbell`s mind works,the Habitual Liar Gordon Campbell can`t raise the minimum wage in BC ever, meanwhile he has given himself two massive pay increases and a lucrative golden parachute pension, yes indeed, Gordon Campbell,a greedy little child mind!
Lets go back to last summer, Gordon Campbell appeared on the "Today Show" on NBC....It was in the morning and he was talking Olympics, why is that important, simple, Gordon Campbell invited Americans and the world to come to BC for the 2010 Olympic games, when the host of the Today Show mentioned Olympic medals Gordon Campbell said.
"Your welcome to win Bronze or Silver medals but the Gold medals are all ours" Snip.......You see folks, arrogance, the appearance reeked, Gordon Campbell again displayed his inner selfish child mind.....Which brings me to our 2010 games, as you know between all levels of governments(but mainly BC) an Olympic program was developed, the cost over the last 5 years for the "Own the Podium" program is/was $120 million dollars, well with a team of 206 members it works out to nearly 1/2 million dollars per athlete, now I don`t have a problem with the money I have a problem with the name..."Own the Podium".......Another Gordon Campbell name selection, and it`s greedy,selfish,arrogant, own the podium, who the heck are we to say we are going to own the podium, the world media has noticed the name "Own the Podium" and they feel the same way,we`re acting arrogant,cocky and I agree, why couldn`t our program been called..."Strive for your Best"....or...."no gain without pain".....Okay that last one is a little hokey but it`s better than..."Own the Podium".
A luge slider died yesterday,tragic, should never have happened, the world media and reporters have sniffed out a story, a story about denying other teams practice time on the world`s fastest sliding track, about going out of our way to gain an advantage, I have heard that about every Olympic Venue in B.C.....And friends I would bet dollars to doughnuts that Gordon child mind Campbell is behind this ......CHEATING, Gordon Campbell and his entire party have been lying,cheating, and selling out the province, in fact the slogan for the BC Liberal party is...."We only cheat when we can`t win".
So day one has come to an end, the highlights are in my head, the men`s 1500 meter skate, we had two potential medalists, one got eliminated in a quarter final as did the other, the second quarter final our Canadian got tripped up by a competitor and the judges ruled our Canadian could go through to the final because of the trip....And in that final he finished a distant 4th....Both of these skaters in my opinion didn`t represent Canada well,I`m not talking about their athletic ability, I`m talking about the appearance of Sportsmanship.....But the most egregious display of the Gordon Campbell effect was at Cypress Mountain....The Girls moguls.
I watched intently all day, there was 27 skiers in the preliminary round and 20 skiers would advance to the final mogul run....The running order went by scores in the first round, the worst lowest scoring skier went first in the final and the best Preliminary round scorers skied last in the final.....Which set up an interesting final, our best Canadian in moguls skied second to last and an American skier was the last one down the mogul run....
Anyways, our girl (Heil is her name) skied a great mogul run and her score put her in the gold medal position with one American skier to go....And lo n behold the final American skier made even a faster,better run and knocked (heil) out of the Gold medal and into Silver medal position...So the Cypress mountain mogul event was America Gold..Canada Silver...And America Bronze.....
Now I understand everyone wants gold but Silver is okay.....But the display on the mountain by our girl (Heil)was....Gordon Campbell like.....The three medalists were on the mountain waving and celebrating.....No friends that`s not true...The two Americans were jumping for joy, the gold medal winner was ecstatic, the American Bronze medal winner was so excited,smiling,waving,teary....The American Bronze medal winner was on top of the world, she was thrilled to have a Bronze medal.....Meanwhile our Silver medalist was sulking, not excited,barely a wave, the last event of the day being broadcast to the world and we showed selfishness, arrogance,poor sportsmanship, we displayed a Gordon Campbell child mind selfish hissy fit for the world to see!
You see friends, the games are cursed,Gordon Campbell with his "Best place on earth".....Gordon Campbell`s "Own the Podium"......Has turned bad karma towards us.
I hope we win more medals, I don`t know what our athletes were promised if they win a Gold Medal, but something is up,something that has tainted our country, it smells of Gordon Campbell.....However, someone needs to have a serious talk to all our athletes and remind them the world is watching,they need to be reminded, "Don`t be like Gordon Campbell"....Try Showing some class.....And a 300 to nothing score in Girls Hockey isn`t helping matters!
