Smiling Happy Children

A $600 million dollar retractable roof, hundreds of millions in subsidies to big banks,the same big time gifts to the oil n gas industry, millions of dollars to friends of Gordon Campbell, friends like Patrick Kinsella, Ken Dobell,Finavera,Plutonic,Paragon,Ecana Gas, Teck Comenco, millions of dollars to BC Rail executives to keep their mouth shut!
Today friends I have a big smile on my face, the HST petition is going great, all over the Province people are lining up to sign the petition, up in the Peace region canvassers got 50% of the required signatures in 1 day, line-ups in Kamloops, people lined up first thing in the morning to sign in Nanaimo, in talking to some canvassers on the Sunshine coast almost everyone who is asked is signing the petition, every group of signers there are many more who are volunteering to help, Elections BC is still swamped,thousands and thousands of new canvassers have sent in paperwork, it appears everyone wants to ride the growing snowball!
And the news keeps getting better, a cute lady wants to date me, a girl! Me! really me?, being single and isolated, she`s been reading my blog,she is local, single with an almost adult son, I haven`t had a date in so long, I have many past emotional commitments and have been sacrificing time and energy for others and enjoy doing so, I am so looking forward to a hug and a mental connection, true love is in the mind, and speaking of beautiful minds, there is one I would like to mention, this woman`s aura glows, a powerful presence, a woman who has said many kind things to me, a lady who has taught me to care,to fight, and to forgive, although I really struggle with that forgive thing but I`m working on it, I visited my friend Mary`s site today and even before I could read her latest gem I noticed something different, her site was electric, there was a Cherry Blossom aura emanating from the pages, there were smiles and a peaceful power that exploded from her words, I could sense there was an entity there, it was surreal, I could reach out and touch it, it was not imaginary, it was there, the only thing I can add is visit Mary`s site yourself and read her latest Publication ban post, I just left there and now I have a giant smile and tear dripped paperwork.
In a world of imagination, shouldn`t the goal of Government be to make as many children smile as possible, friends, if I ever ran for office that would be my one and only election promise.."I Grant G promise if elected to make as many children smile as possible, I promise to make parents of autistic children smile, parents of disabled children smile, I promise to make students smile, I promise to make kids from all ages smile,no matter what economic class children come from policies will be put in place that will make them smile"
That`s my message folks, the banks, oil n gas sector, P3s, IPPs, insider friends, they have been doing a lot of smiling at the expense of families and children, no children should go to bed hungry, no son or daughter should be denied available treatment for illness, the BC Childrens hospital will never wait for funding,waiting for telethons, waiting for donations to be built, in my world Children come first!
In my world Ecana gas and BC Banks can run telethons for subsidies,if they want subsidies they can beg individuals for money, not the reverse, there will be no money for casinos or retractable roofs until all libraries are opened, until child poverty is stamped out, until EIBI funding for autistic children is put in place for all, in my world there will be food for hungry children, insulin pumps.........
In my world the children smile, I`m smiling today, Mary is smiling, my HST petitioneers are smiling, I want to turn this Province into super natural BC, a place where children once again have reason to smile!

Well ... I am all smiles, Grant G ... what lovely things you have said about me ...

gotta pinch myself to make sure I haven't actually died and gone to heaven!

That was so nice of you. Really it is. And I sincerely hope you keep smiling for a long, long time too. Blessings.

Grant - I just read some awesome news over at the Tyee. Over 100,000 signatures on the HST petition in the first week. That's over 1/4 signatures needed! And 11 weeks to go. This one is done like dinner. Goodbye Gordotron. At least I (most of us) don't have to worry about signing up as canvassers anymore. It's now in the bag!

I'm smiling when them petitions are torched by ze de Jong and ze Gord. The legislature can say, "Kiss Off" and be done with it.

Premier Gordon Campbell is just like ex-Aussie PM John Howard... he'll risk tax reform if it's the right thing to do.

The HST is not Tax reform. It is the opposite of what Robin Hood was said to do. The HST is nothing but a way for the government to rob from the poor to give to the rich. You can live in your fantasy world if you wish, but I suspect your real motive is to stir the pot as most PAB trolls are wont to do.

One thing I've noticed is that the Gordon Campbell lovers seem to be coming out of the woodwork dissing the initiative as if it is a foregone conclusion that the exercise is futile. If this is indeed true, then why bother attacking it at every opportunity. Maybe you are trying to convince yourselves rather than the rest of us.

Have no fear. Once this is a "DONE DEAL" we can move on to "RECALL IN THE FALL".

Have a nice day!

Those children better by happy, as it will be them and their children who will be paying for the Owlympics!

I am smiling too Grant, because last week I became aware of a subtle shift in the collective conscience and it gave me a sense of hope, and power over my destiny. Did anyone else feel it? Happy for you Grant, there is nothing like fresh love in the spring!

Gary E said...

And with this post Grant you have put a smile on my face.
As some people know, my brother and I are polar opposites. We had a discussion yesterday on the way to Kamloops and it was pretty good. But in the end he asked why I do this and volunteer for things like canvassing. My answer to him ended the conversation. I said "because Tom, if I were to die tomorrow I would die happy in the knowledge that I tried to make a change for my children as well as the rest."

This story reminds me of one of those trips...

Lone pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell them a hookah smoking caterpillar has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When the men on the chess board
get up and tell you where to go
And you just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "Off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said

Feed your head
Feed your head
