I'm worried, pete.......really worried. I just don't see Conservative support rising as fast as I would hope. I like Andrew and believe he is a good and decent man but he is still an unknown quantity in the eyes of voters. I was not impressed with the way the party handled the Tori Stafford issue in the House. I believe they were over the top in their presentations and did more harm than good in their quest to have Tori's vicious murderess moved back to prison. Missteps like that don't advance our chances for election.
About the only positive news I see is that our party may be able to persuade CAQ candidates who failed in their bid to become Quebec MPs, to join the party. Being that they are obviously conservative in their ideology, it would not be a huge leap of faith for them to come into the fold.
Governor General missing in action
================================================== ================================================== ====
poor dixie cup..........you support decapoda in his fine condemnation of our idiot boy justin and his lie-beral losers.............and that i a good thing!
But your understanding of green house gas emissions in canada is woefully inadequate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dixie cup has made some statements that need to be refuted! Her statements are set out below- with my rebuttals in brackets):
I stated that our carbon footprint is going down because: 1 - vehicles have become and are becoming more efficient in the burning of fuels......
(you are correct that cars are more fuel efficient -and they last much longer too! And there is your mistake- cars are also being driven much farther and faster and more frequently now! I have relatives living in muskoka and 40 years ago people did not travel far after dark- rough and narrow roads and the cost of driving limited the number of casual trips!)
(in addition- as i stated- people in general- are traveling more frequently than they used to! Having 2 jobs or having one job and a bunch of school courses means scheduling conflicts that can only be met by driving- public transit is to slow!)
(further- kids used to walk to school- now look at the number of school busses roaming the neighbourhoods- and that is a huge new use of fuel!)
(further- the streets are less safe now thanks to lie-beral hug a thug judges and so parents drive their kids to school- and pick them up afterwords! And that is another major new fuel demand!)
(or look at your blue box recycling bin- used to be one single truck came down your street and collected your trash! Now its two trucks- one for trash and one for recycling with attendant extra fuel costs!)
(and sadly- lie-berals are lying about recycling rates! They boast that nearly 90 percent of our trash is “diverted from land fills”! What that means is that nearly 90 percent of our trash is trucked to a recycling centre to be picked over- with currently only eleven percent of that picked over trash actually being recycled- the discarded unsuitable stuff is loaded back onto another truck and sent off to a land fill- with more fuel costs for all the loading and unloading and heat and light for the warehouse and etc.!)
(the recycling biz is far more picky than politicians want to admit! A city tv camera crew went to a local recycling plant and were show a glass bottle that once contained tomato sauce- with the manager explaining- this bottle cannot be recycled as it is contaminated with food residue! So much for that 90 percent diversion rate lie!)
(the recycling scam is about to get a lot worse- as much of the material used to be sent off to china- but china has now refused to accept any more of our crap- meaning we will have to find a new way to deal with it- meaning more energy needed - but on the plus side- the number of fossil fueled ship on the ocean will go down thanks to the china move!)
(even keeping the city neat and tidy costs more fuel now! As govt has moved to reduce costs- slang meaning grabbing more gravy for govt hogs- by restricting what can be put out for trash- and garbage dumping costs have consequently become so high- a portion of our trash is now dumped illegally- and trucks and crews must burn more fuel as they go out to clean up the messes in lane ways and side roads!)
plus electric cars will become more and more popular as they become cheaper to buy and battery power increases.
(sorry- current technology is such that lie-beral sponsored electric toy cars are not the solution! In fact pollution from lithium mining, refining and battery construction may become as bad or worse than fossil fuel production and use!)
(currently most lithium comes from china- though other sources are being developed! Chinese officials already have their hands full- dealing with complaints from their citizens about the toxic plumes of lithium dust the miners are spewing!)
(in addition there have been a number of work stoppages in the tesla nevada plant- over toxic lithium dust contamination- with nevada residents down wind from the plant also complaining of lithium pollution!)
(further- nobody has made an honest calculation of how much it will cost in money and pollution to recycle these batteries once they are discarded! We do know that lithium automatically bursts into flames when it comes in contact with air- so recycling will not be easy or cheap!)
(currently electric cars do not have either the range, the ease of refueling or cargo
carrying or towing capacity to appeal to the general public! And as our wynne-bag lie-berals have discovered- trying to force people to go green will get you voted out of office!)
(unless some truly radical discovery is made in battery technology- electric cars will remain a novelty item loved only by lie-berals and a few eccentric environmental cranks who have enough money to play with the lie-beral electric toys cars! All others will scorn the toys!)
technology in the oilsands -as an example- have lowered their carbon emissions dramatically in the last few years and technology will continue to evolve in the continuing process of finding fossil fuels.
(you are quite right- oil sand extraction and refining has become much cleaner! But as our idiot boy justin has told us- it is not enough- he wants gto shut down all cdn fossil fuel extraction, refining and use- completely! And that short sighted stupidity will get him voted out of office!)
(burning natural gas is much cleaner than burning coal and the chinese want to switch from burning coal- over to natural gas- if only they could get reliable supplies at decent cost!)
(so why is our idiot boy justin blocking natural gas pipelines from being built? He is killing cdn jobs and making the environment dirtier with his pig headed stance against pipelines and natural gas exports! And natural gas produced by fracking is surely more filthy than natural gas shipped in from saskatchewan? Injecting thousands of gallon of toxic chemicals to frack gas loose is surely going to come back to bite us?)
(trump recently blasted german govt for signing a massive natural gas deal with russia- and trump is right to do so! Russian putin is a bully and a villain and handing him german hard currency enables putin to expand his military and make more threats! Putting cdn natural gas onto world markets would enable people to get the fuel they need without automatically feeding dictator putin!)
new homes are far more heating and electrically efficient due to new building methods and technology and will continue as things evolve.
(certainly new homes are more efficient than they used to be! They are also often larger than they used to be and air conditioning is much more prevalent than it once was! Air conditioning used to be the option of a quite privileged few- but as our cities expand and all that concrete creates an urban heat island- air conditioning becomes necessary! There are no energy economies being enjoyed there!)
(take a drive through the old part of the town of ajax- and look at all the old bungalows that date from ww2- and realize those houses are now illegal!)
(a 900 square foot house is illegal- so says all our city planners! Twenty years ago a 1200 square foot house was legal in gta- but no longer! Now in virtually all of southern ontari-owe- the minimum sized house you can build is 1800 square feet! Bigger house- equals more energy use! And lie-beral greed for property tax gravy demands that bigger houses be built!)
(and yes- it looks as if people living in a condo are greener than suburban dwellers- but it aint so! A 30 storey tower requires vastly more concrete and steel to hold it up and the green house gas produced in the process is huge! But a wood frame house is built of trees- that grow back!)
(further- a condo tower requires much more digging and excavation for the underground parking! Or you end up with masses of concrete and steel for a multi level parking garage!)
(then there are the elevators and all the security lighting- for all hallways and public areas and parking areas- meaning lots more electricity- 24/7!)
(the key of course is what people do on the weekend! It is well documented that many condo dwellers hit the highway on friday- heading out of the concrete canyons to some place green and pleasant! By comparison a lot of suburban dwellers take the attitude that “you aint getting me back into that car till monday morning!)
(lie-berals trying to force us into little boxes down town are lying again! A condo dweller can be a bigger user of fossil fuel than a suburban commuter!)
(much depends on the life style and income levels and lie-berals know this! It is why they are so obsessed with their carbon crap and trade tax scam! They will use the tax scam to cripple the lives of ordinary cdns while grabbing up huge piles of gravy to buy votes- and make sure that lie-berals and their pals will have the gravy they need to maintain their carbon foot prints!)
(lie-beral greed is so immense they will not even do us the courtesy of building new subway and transit lines before trying to shove us out of our cars!)
(the existing transit system is overloaded and worn out already- how do lie-berals think it will handle a doubling or tripling of the number of passengers? Or should we assume there will not be that massive increase in passengers? How many jobs do lie-berals truly expect us to lose if they do shut off the fossil fuel industry?)
so yes, our carbon footprint is becoming lower as each year passes.
(so no!! Our carbon foot print is not growing smaller!!!! In fact our carbon foot print is growing every year! Look at the increasing number of people who have riding lawn mowers, and atv`s and skidoos! Look at all the sea doos flying up and down the lakes!)
(as engines become more reliable and fuel efficient- not only do we buy more of them- we drive them farther and faster! And now recognize that only about 10 percent of cdns own a second home- usually a recreational property- and that one employed cdn in three works for govt!)
(now- recognize that our lie-beral govt is borrowing money to pay civil service union hog salaries and pensions- and the hogs are using borrowed money to fuel their array of gas powered toys!)
(understand also that as engines become more fuel efficient and reliable- it becomes cheaper to travel- and therefore our well heeled hogs do more of it! Further and farther and faster! While ordinary cdns struggle to pay their heating bills! Lie-berals have set up a two tier economy with hogs on one side and us on the other!)
(worst of all- there is major new evidence that the contrails- those plumes of white water vapour that high flying modern planes hauling hogs paying to fly with our borrowed money - spew out - are actually very major drivers of climate change and temperature variation!)
i simply do not believe eco freaks who insist we're all going to die tomorrow if something isn't done today. How can that be? It simply doesn't make sense.
(author michael crichton has detailed the exaggerations of the environmentalists in his book “state of fear” ! As example he points out that snow loss from the peak of mount kilimanjaro is the result of local deforestation- people cutting trees for cooking fuel- and raising the local air temperature in the process because forests are cooler than grass lands!)
(but we do know that fossil fuel burning does have some effect! So we can aid the environment- and save our economy by admitting the lie-beral carbon crap and trade scam is merely a massive new tax on everything- that lie-berals want so they can buy votes- and ensure that the hogs with the biggest carbon foot prints will be forced to ease up on their major consumption!)
(and of course putting a halt to massive lie-beral deficits - by limiting the amounts of gravy flowing to hogs will aid our economy!)
But he's not a militarist fascist. That must count for something.

Quit reading fake Zionists news and check out the unemployment rate.
Lowest in 47 years.
What have you ever done for Canada????
Complain, whine fuqq all
Another exposed fraud by PMJT and his anti oil crowd like Butts, I wonder what was the extent of election interference had taken place in the 2015 election, and who actually financed it?
