Results of the MyDemocracy.ca survey allowed the Trudeau Govt to cancel Electoral reform

Survey results showed Canadians want their politicians to be accountable – so Trudeau Cancelled election reform.

election-reform
Maryam Monsef and Dominic LeBlanc – The biggest challenge for the multi-million dollar committee was determining is it – Electoral Reform or Electorial Reform?

Some election promises are made by parties who don’t expect to get elected. When they do they get stuck with a silly platform promise that they don’t or can’t fulfill. The Liberal party is great at handing out money to spend but not so great at getting things done.

In the election Prime Minister Trudeau presented Electoral Reform as a critical need for Canadians. Then he got elected without it. Why would he want it now?

 The vague questions in the survey resulted in vague answers. This gave Trudeau way out.

They tried to throw it under the bus by using a cross party committee to make the plan. They got caught however, when the plan had some good ideas that would make it work.

They tried trashing the plan in parliament, but backfired on them as calling people smarter than you “stupid” usually does. So they took it to the people with the MyDemocracy.ca survey.

It cost millions to stage and promote but it got the results the Liberals desired. A mess of confusing information that could be interpreted any way they like.

The results from the Liberal MyDemocracy.ca survey on electoral reform were meant to validate Prime Minister Trudeau’s vision on election reform.

Problem is he never communicated what his vision is and Canadian’s doing really like playing charades.

MyDemocracy.ca Survey Results

The full report on the results have not been released but here are some of the things that have been released:

  • 85% of respondents were Millennials under 30 years old. 45% of these were under the voting age of 18.
  • 63% preferred using a Facebook style “LIKE” instead of checking a box on a voting ballot.
  • 75% said that Looks and Style should be included in the selection process not Race or Sex.
    •  Meaning: They want to get away from the sexist move towards an equal mix of males and females in government and racist minority mixes. They feel this is a move catering to the Oppression Olympics.
    •  They prefer a balance of styles. Stating there is a complete lack of of Culinary Explorers, Nostalgics, and Millennial Marthas. They feel the same for shutouts, Travel Enthusiasts and underemployed. Problem is if they joined the government they would lose their identity.  
  • 57% Preferred Small parties to big (It should have said “Political Parties” but didn’t so it was interpreted as liking public gatherings – the reason behind the recent Trudeau town hall meeting tour)
  • 98% Canadians want their politicians to be more accountable (Surprised?) – so Prime Minister Trudeau cancelled election reform.

Billions in Trudeau Govt infrastructure cash was spent on cosmetics

The Trudeau Liberals promised that infrastructure cash would be spread easily across Canada and it was – in a layer 1 inch thick.

trudeau-infrastructure-spending
The Liberals gave out buckets of infrastructure money in 2016 most of it was used for cosmetic road repairs

After their election win the Trudeau Government smugly handed out billions in infrastructure cash. They talked about big projects to get the economy going. What they gave us was a national pavement cosmetic facelift.

The provincial and municipal governments on the receiving end of the cash wanted to maximize their spending power to gain the most votes for themselves. They paved every road they could.

We need good roads, the problem is they didn’t do the traditional tear down and repave the whole road. They scraped off the top inch of pavement and and put down a nice looking – but superficial – 1″ layer of asphalt.

So everyone is happy with a all these smooth new roads, until a year or so down the road when it cracks and falls apart.

trudeau-infrastructure-spending
Paving companies doubled down on their profits by recycling the 1″ of pavement they removed and sold it to homeowners as new driveway pavement.

So the National Debt increases, Paving companies line their pockets (knowing they will get to repave these roads again in a year or two) and politicians take credit for all these great roads they gave us. Lucky us….

White House Kitchen Staff Surprised President Trump likes their food!

After 2 weeks he hasn’t complained about the additives in his food

White House Kitchen staff won’t admit to rumors that they are spitting in President Trump’s food, but they are surprised at how much he likes the food.

trump-whitehouse-food
White House Staff enjoy giving Trump payback for being so rude. They just can’t believe he doesn’t notice -especially the amount of “Chic Pea”

Obviously they can’t admit the special food additives bugs and phlegm to the President’s diet. Especially if they want to keep doing it and to keep their jobs. They are just having problems keeping it a secret because of the shock of him not noticing -they just keep talking about it.

 

trump-resturant-staff
Donald Trump was an early adopter of food additives

Members of the Press Core say they know the reason why – He has been eating spit in his food for years.

 “It’s been an inside joke in the Hospitality industry for years. Staff fight over the change to spit in or do other gross things to his meals.” “He has been eating shit in his food for so long that if he ate something without it would taste funny.”

Others added , “Trump hasn’t had a home cooked meal since the 1980’s so you can imagine how creative these Chefs have become” “But it took sick turn when the story broke about Trump with the Russian Hookers”  “He’s had every variety of “Chic Pea” if you know what I mean.”    \

Whether you like President Trump or not – You have to hope that he will hire a food taster soon.

 

Helicopter Parent backlash, their Helicopter Kids are taking over!

 Millennials embarrassed by their parents inability to keep up with change are taking over their parents lives.

helicopter-kids-millennials
Whether a Hipster, Haul Girl, SeaPunk, Goth, Nerd, or Geek Feminist they are all concerned about their parent’s image

Controlling helicopter parents are now getting the backlash from their adult children. Raised under the umbrella of perfection they are turning the tables on their parents.

parents-and-technology
When they were younger it was funny when their parents were scared of technology – smart phones, the internet, programing VCR clocks

When they were kids Millennials joked about their parents not being able to program their VCR clock, save numbers on their flip phone, and showed fear of the internet. As adults they don’t find it funny anymore. They don’t want to be embarrassed in front of their friends or work colleagues in public or online. So they are flipping roles with their helicopter parents.

helicopter-kids-bad-clothes
When the kids were young their parents could wear terrible clothes but their friends rarely saw them so they didn’t care.

As millennial kids hit their late teens they began with  giving parents direction and advice about what was appropriate. But they never crossed paths socially  so that was as far as it went.

Over time this advice backfired as parents became more courageous with technology and social media. This made their lifestyle intersect with their adult children and it was not pretty.

Taking over their parents social media profiles like a corporate webmaster

Embarrassing social media posts left the kids wide open for ridicule from their online friends and they did not like it. The solution was something they learned directly from their parents as they were growing up – the Helicopter method.

helicopter-kids-emabarrased
Helicopter kids drew the line when their parent’s “inappropriate” content hit social media

They have taken to going through their parents wardrobe like a reality show – purging what they don’t approval of and giving direction on what to buy. Many are using apps to put together and schedule their parents daily wardrobe choices.

They are also taking over their parents social media profiles like they are a corporate webmaster. They approve any photos that are uploaded, and have passwords so they can delete any comments, tweets or likes they don’t approve.

It sounds pretty harsh but that is the way they were brought up.

Have you seen this behavior in your circle of friends?


What you must always remember is that change is good for you, that in the long-term everything transforms itself from the lower to the higher.

Alec Baldwin’s impression of Trump is a step towards him running in 2020 Election

Democrats are pinning their hopes on Alec Baldwin as their Presidential candidate in 2020. Katy Perry a potential VP!

baldwin-trump-perry
Democrats feel Alec Baldwin and Katy Perry would be the ideal tag team to take on Trump.

As Democrats recover from their election loss they looks towards rebuilding the party for the 2020 election. Many say that they need to get someone with celebrity status like Donald Trump who can have a populist impact in the election.

Insiders feel that Alec Baldwin would be idea in the role of President. He is intelligent, politically aware -a Washington outsider – and can imitate Trump in all the ways people like.

Seeing Katy Perry with a Baldwin would make voters very happy

Democratic Party members revealed:  “People think that Alec imitated Trump just for fun, but he is building up his credibility with Trump haters who think it’s funny and Trump lovers who can’t tell them apart.” “He will be a shoe-in for President”

As much as they like  Alec Baldwin, party insiders much prefer Katy Perry as a candidate. “We love Katy but think 2020 is too soon for her. It would make sense for her to run as Baldwin’s VP and then shoot for President in 2024.” “When we reveal Katy with a Baldwin all Americans will be happy.

Baldwin and Perry are expected to spend the next 4 years trashing Trump at every opportunity.

Midwest Airports staff take Trump’s “Extreme Vetting” orders literally, passengers were terrified!

Another case of President Trump’s direction without details goes off the rails.

It seems that in the Midwest  they follow the original definition of vetting:

 “To vet was originally a horse-racing term, referring to the requirement that a horse be checked for health and soundness by a veterinarian before being allowed to race. Thus, it has taken the general meaning “to check.”

So when security staff decided to be proactive and give the President what he wanted to Make America Great Again, they gave a new definition to the term “Arm’s length Relationship.”

The initial passengers were open and willing to tell anything while undergoing the search. After they were horrified and speechless about the treatment they received.

effects-of-extreme-vetting
Vetting has a number of definitions –  airport officials picked the worst one.

Luckily for others the vets were called away to help sick animals. Local medical experts say nothing important was found in the searches but the passengers may have to wait a long time before they can sit comfortably again.
