    Loser liberal, sleazy Morrow says he referred the matter to the House of Commons Board of Internal Economy and said on Twitter he isn’t commenting further.

    Grifter Kenney gets caught with his pants down once again and blames others. Sound familiar?

    It's a pattern of behavior apparently to throw his people under the bus when he gets caught out:

    Having run the Canadian Taxpayers Federation I’m sure that he agreed with their fundamental mission statement. What was it? Something about ensuring government acts ????? Gosh I just can’t recall what the heck they were all about.

    Kenny was aghast at foreign money going to anti-oil environmentalists hurting Alberta. I’m waiting for a similar outcry from him regarding the foreign money apparently going to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. (See below).



    Canadian Taxpayers Federation's credibility in question after election financing fine
    David J. Climenhaga
    January 22, 2019

    “The $6,000 administrative penalty levied against the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) for failing to register as a third-party advertiser under Alberta's election financing law is a long-overdue official recognition of the true role the self-described "tax watchdog" plays in Canadian politics.

    The CTF has been disproportionately influential in Canadian political discourse for many years, mainly because mainstream media treat its pronouncements as if they were highly credible.”
    ...

    Indeed, the CTF is something of a farm team for candidates and party officials of the CPC and its provincial chapters. Prominent examples in Alberta are United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney and Freedom Conservative Party Leader Derek Fildebrandt.

    Kenney is a former president and CEO of the organization -- indeed, that position would appear to be the closest thing to what most of us would call a real job that the career politician has held.

    Fildebrandt was the CTF's Alberta director until he left suddenly in late 2014 soon after it was revealed he was considering running for the Wildrose Party. However, the actual reason for his departure was never made clear

    Wait, does this mean that Kenny was lying? Or simply breaking the rules?

    Retirement community where Jason Kenney claimed he lived doesn't allow sublets, says former staff member

    A former staff mem
    ber who worked at the retirement home for a portion of the period Kenney's mother lived there — and was familiar with her, describing her as a kind woman — said, while there was a bedroom in the basement of Kenney's mother's home, Kenney was rarely there.


    CBC News is not identifying the staff member, who is concerned about the impact her comments could have on her employment.


    She said between 2012-13, she never saw Kenney but heard from fellow staff that he had visited for just a few days.


    And, she said even if he stayed for longer, subletting was explicitly not permitted under the lease agreement, which residents signed upon moving in.

    Poking fun of something that a person can't change (colour, race, body type etc.) is not acceptable no matter which way you look at it. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Jason Kenney, by choice, has never raised a child. He will never know how difficult it can be to raise kids, and will never truly understand the meaning of "the world's hardest job".
    Since I am a child raising parent I can laugh at Jason Kenney every time tells us what he thinks is best for families.

    But a health minister should not be obese, it is terrible. I am not obese ,so I'm allowed to call her, as I see her.
    Dawg called Jason, fat arse, did you step in then? Tell him he should be ashamed? No. Please don't lecture me, I'm over 60, I've paid my dues and if I'm not PC enough, too bad..move on, I'm not one of your pupils or underlings.. Thank god, you sound so uptight!

    All these people lacking will power and you can see the result: obesity, mental illness, depression, heart & stroke risk from high cholesterol diets, drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual orientation, congenital defects, low intelligence, cancer... They should just show some strength of will and become NORMAL people. The signs start early, they start with the parents and weak willed children failing to even stay on the honour rolls throughout school. Those lacking just the basic will power to get med school entry grades clearly were destined for obesity, depression, addiction and all the other vices.



    You’re over 60? And you stopped learning when? I know people in their 90s that have paid very high dues, yet don’t need to actually suffer from some ailment to still have empathy and understanding towards those that do. You seem to lack that capacity. They didn’t have to have an ailment, say PTSD, in order to understand that factors beyond someone’s control could cause debilitating results. No amount of will power will overcome some conditions.

    So, just like a mother of a child likely has clearer insight into and is more experienced in parenting than a single childless person, someone that has lived with health challenges very likely has clearer insight into health issues than someone that has never personally suffered from any health challenges.

    Sarah Hoffman is overweight, deal with it, or maybe she should try health Canada's new diet. It looks great for cows. She doesn't get to call everyone sewer rats without repercussions, she's a b!tch!

    How can I lack empathy, with a husband in a wheelchair 24/7 of late( a collapsed lung over Christmas) , so I bought goodies for our nurses. and a daughter who needs my attention at the hospital once a week, you don't know me, or my life!
    The rest is the usual kc blah blah aren't I great blah blah.
    I am a real master at blah, blah, blah aren’t I.

    Sorry to hear of your situation.

    However I’ve encountered people that have their own hardships and need understanding and empathy for themselves or their loved ones, that astoundingly have turned around and shown intolerance towards others and their situations.

    It’s really made me start to re-think what really creates empathy. I’ve started to sense that unless someone has some direct experience to some hardship, or visualize themselves or loved ones in it, they otherwise don’t give a ****.

    Anyway you likely don’t know Hoffman’s life or past.

    It is rather despicable that she apparently called some people sewer rats. Who were they? (This article was interesting but didn’t say.)

    https://calgaryherald.com/news/polit...out-opposition


    One more thing. Passing judgement on the health of someone due to their weight may someday prove overly simplistic. As a young, fit, skinny twerp I started with biases and sweeping judgements about “too much” weight but those were challenged by knowing two active overweight women who in their 90s were fit, had minds and memories better than most 50 yr olds and both lived to be over 100. In comparison there was the thin elderly lady my mother shared a room with in a nursing home. She had multiple championship sports trophies and awards - but was essentially a vegetable for years due to some form of dementia which killed her too soon.


    I’d say that can expect decades of back and forth on things like this as they find they are comparing apples to oranges (like simplistically applying drug studies on men to women):

    The rest is the usual kc blah blah aren't I great blah blah.
    I am a real master at blah, blah, blah aren’t I.

    Sorry to hear of your situation.

    However I’ve encountered people that have their own hardships and need understanding and empathy for themselves or their loved ones, that astoundingly have turned around and shown intolerance towards others and their situations.

    It’s really made me start to re-think what really creates empathy. I’ve started to sense that unless someone has some direct experience to some hardship, or visualize themselves or loved ones in it, they otherwise don’t give a ****.

    Anyway you likely don’t know Hoffman’s life or past.

    It is rather despicable that she apparently called some people sewer rats. Who were they? (This article was interesting but didn’t say.)

    One more thing. Passing judgement on the health of someone due to their weight may someday prove overly simplistic. As a young, fit, skinny twerp I started with biases and sweeping judgements about “too much” weight but those were challenged by knowing two active overweight women who in their 90s were fit, had minds and memories better than most 50 yr olds and both lived to be over 100. In comparison there was the thin elderly lady my mother shared a room with in a nursing home. She had multiple championship sports trophies and awards - but was essentially a vegetable for years due to some form of dementia which killed her too soon.
    Do you have empathy for our homeless? I sure do. If you do, what have you done? Served them hot coffee when it's -28? Served meals at various holidays? You don't need to feel sorry for me, I have a good life, a roof over my head
    Do you help our vets, if so, how?
    Do you write letters / get lin touch with the feds, and not give in( no matter what party is in power) because JT is wrong, they do not ask for too much.
    The service dogs would help a great deal with PTSD, do keep telling the minister that! I heard back from my MP on tiny houses for vets.
    Hoffman, I cannot stand the woman,I'm allowed to feel that, just as I've seen very rude comments over anyone on the right, everyone appears to be alt right, which is stupidly wrong. Those saying it, I'm betting have done nothing to help our vets or our homeless

    For the record, I am not defending Sarah Hoffman's actions within government. The only thing I am defending is the unwarranted criticism about things that are out of her control.

    I have been very impressed with what David Eggen has done as minister of education in making sure that government funded education for private and public schools are giving fair and equal treatment to everyone from all backgrounds. It's about time that colonial system was updated.

    Sarah Hoffman's performance as minister of health leaves much to be desired. Covenant health was refusing patients their right to die on religious grounds. Sarah has been rather silent on the issue which isn't surprising because she herself is religious. I personally believe that religious organizations should be removed from the business of providing healthcare. I also was not impressed with the name calling Sarah did within the legislature, but she has apologized for doing that - which is more than I can say for some people on this forum.
    Edmonton first, everything else second.

    Egghead.

    What an annoying prick.

    When he was rolling out his new school curriculum he relentlessly blew up all of Top_Dawg's phones with his bullsh*t propaganda.

    As if Top_Dawg gave a flying f*ck.

    Finally it ceased thank goodness.

    So today Top_Dawg stopped at his Mill Creek pad.

    Messages waiting.

    Now it's Shannon Phillips bombarding his phone with her partisan horseshit about the Big Horn whatever the f*ck it is.

    Who cares ?

    Certainly not Top_Dawg.

    And at this point why should she ?

    Isn't she from Lethbridge ?

    Redneck f*cking ground zero.

    She's only going to get f*cking annihilated in a couple of months.

    Why bother ?

    After this election the lefties will be in their glory. They are already starting their barrage of hatred in anticipation of the loss. Jason Kenney is a super hard worker dedicating his life to serve the public. Hes a devout Roman Catholic living a chaste life with 100% of his time put into his work. I can see that as being a lot of fodder for the left to feed upon. They should be very happy that they can spew their slime each day. Why wait for spring, do it now. Crazy fuqers.

    “dedicating his life to serve the public.”

    I always have trouble believing that’s true of politicians.

    It’s ok if he is and that’s what he wants but then I’d hope that all people live a balanced fulfilling and as natural-for-them life as they possibly can, and not sacrifice themselves for others.


    As for the lefties being in their glory, wouldn’t that time actually be now, with the NDP in power? It all just seems like double-speak. Or maybe is it that in politics winning and loosing doesn’t matter as they can always find a silver lining?



    I’m curious now. Drumbones, are you religious?

    Yeah, being so proud of the fact that he successfully kept same sex partners from visiting their loved ones in hospital. So Christ like.

    The tape reveals Kenney boasting of his helping to organize a petition demanding a referendum to repeal an ordinance that gave hospital visitation rights for same-sex couples. This was in San Francisco, when Kenney was a student at a local Jesuit university. It was also during the height of the AIDS crisis, when gay men were dying in agony, and often without loved ones present, because of long-established homophobia. It was a truly horrible time.

    Kenney goes on to say on the tape that his work on this issue brought him closer spiritually to the Roman Catholic Church, which is not only deeply shocking but also reveals a grotesque misunderstanding of what it means to be spiritual. Once the tape was released, Kenney said somewhat blithely that, “Sure, there are things that I’ve done and said in my life that I regret.” Forgive my cynicism, but he would say that wouldn’t he.

    Or for advocating against freedom of speech for women on campus because then pedophiles or the Church of Satan would have to have free speech too. Conveniently ignoring the fact that pedophilia is illegal and that there's freedom of religion.

    Or demanding the right to out gay kids to their parents regardless of the danger it might put them in.

    Or shrugging his shoulders and saying he doesn't have the right to eject John Carpay from the UCP after he equated the Pride and Nazi flags. Funny, you managed to get rid of someone that was closely tied to you and your campaigns. I guess Carpay wasn't quite close enough for you to do anything about it.

    He's always looked after his parents, and Rona Ambrose was talking about how helpful he was to her and others when he wasn't in caucus. He made time for them.
    Let the left punch away, he's had worse. Politics is an ugly game, just look at that ding dong McCullum , he spouts off his mouth, nothing even close to what JT had said, he's a drunk though, thank goodness Jason isn't. Klein was a pretty nasty drunk ..

    Yeah, he just said that keeping people from dying of AIDS in the hospital away from their loved ones made him a better Catholic. Taking care of his mom with a housing scam is sooooo much better. Subletting a place in his mom's house in a complex that doesn't allow sublets and having taxpayers pick up the tab is the very definition of "a good son".

    The NDP survey my wife got the other day asked what the biggest issues albertans are facing and guess what wasnt there? Nothing on lgbtq.

    You really like to push this everytime you get the chance but even the ndp are realizing this is losing them more voters as there are much bigger issues people are concerned about

  44. #44

    Perhaps because unlike Kenny and the UCP, the majority of Albertans believe that gay people are human beings and that it's not up for debate. They're entitled to the same rights as everyone else and don't need someone keeping them from their partners when they're in the hospital or comparing them to Nazis (forgetting that the Nazis put gay people int he concentration camps too) or forcing kids to either stay in the closet or confront their parents when they may have a very good reason for keeping their orientation from them.

    Let's see Kenny defend his record on LGBTQ rights. And not just after the vote to legalize marriage. He was in favour of using the notwithstanding clause to invalidate same sex marriage. What's stopping him from following through if he's elected? Just think how much better a Catholic he'd think that would make him.

    Just sayin.

    the ndp yelling nazi racist bigots to every ucp supporter has lost them more votes then its gained. I've lost count of how many times I've heard the ndp deflect a question on the economy or pipelines with this... its pathetic.

    Regardless the ndp dont seem to care enough about lgbtq as it's not in their survey. That must suck for people like you that think that's all that matters....

    Not all but it is important. Unlike people, like you apparently, that have no problem with Kenny's feelings on the matter. Keep people in hospitals apart? No problem. Out kids? But of course.

    And, back on topic, who cares if he committed fraud against the government. At least he was nice to his mom.

    Can you provide a link where it shows the NDP have deflected a question about economy or pipelines by calling every UCP supporter a nazi racist bigot? No, seriously, if you are going to make this (likely false) allegation, you should be able to prove it.

    KC;Im curious now. Drumbones, are you religious?
    Not a religious person but....born into a Dutch Reformed family, raised in the Baptist Church, Lutheran Bible School in summers, my sisters married Catholics so most of my family are Catholics. I married a Buddhist so Ive gone to a bit of that. If I had a Facebook page where it specifies religion I would have to put Reformed Baptist Lutheran Roman Catholic Buddhist. Lol. As for the left being happy now I think they are actually happier when they are bichin, spewing hatred, and piling on someone, like vultures to a carcas. Lol. When The UCP comes to power they can do all that each day, and sleep soundly and satisfied each night.

    Shannon Phillip's on 630 ched maybe a month or two ago deflected on the pipelines by saying kenneys a racist and a bigot. Kenney wasnt even part of the question.

    I posted about it on another thread the day it happened. She deflected the pipeline question by attacking Kenney.

    It's like they think that's the answer to their problems.

    How about the overweight health minister, never ate good food or worked out, hefty mother..
    Poking fun of something that a person can't change (colour, race, body type etc.) is not acceptable no matter which way you look at it. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Jason Kenney, by choice, has never raised a child. He will never know how difficult it can be to raise kids, and will never truly understand the meaning of "the world's hardest job".
    Since I am a child raising parent I can laugh at Jason Kenney every time tells us what he thinks is best for families.
    But a health minister should not be obese, it is terrible. I am not obese ,so I'm allowed to call her, as I see her.
    Dawg called Jason, fat arse, did you step in then? Tell him he should be ashamed? No. Please don't lecture me, I'm over 60, I've paid my dues and if I'm not PC enough, too bad..move on, I'm not one of your pupils or underlings.. Thank god, you sound so uptight!

    Interesting article here. So... maybe those women with less demanding work and lives ...



    Women gain weight when job demands are high -- ScienceDaily

    “On the other hand, long-term exposure to high job demands played a part only for women. In just over half of the women who had been subjected to high demands, a major increase in weight took place over the 20 years. This gain in weight was some 20 percent higher than in women subject to low job demands.

    "When it came to the level of demands at work, only the women were affected. We haven't investigated the underlying causes, but it may conceivably be about a combination of job demands and the greater responsibility for the home that women often assume. This may make it difficult to find time to exercise and live a healthy life," Klingberg says.

    Having had or not had an academic education does not explain the associations in the study. Neither do quality of diet or other lifestyle factors. However, the information about dietary intake comes from the respondents themselves, with a certain risk of incorrect reporting.

    At the same time, given the problems associated with work-related stress, the study is relevant in terms of ...”


    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0125172950.htm
    Hmm I would guess that the information on academic background also comes from the respondents but oddly no qualifying remarks are made about their reporting on that factor. How often are study participants asked to produce their academic papers?

    Its just fake news. I have five sisters that all gained weight between 30 and 50 years old. Its probably half the population across the board but they likely are getting paid to draw up some report so they come up with this. Dumb.
