Obama Just Might Be the Anti-Christ

For some time now I have been watching Barak Obama and feeling strangely uneasy. When asked why, I really couldn't put my finger on it.

Maybe it's because his birth religion is Muslim and it usually seems that Islam trumps all when push comes to shove.

Maybe it's because he never, ever mentions that his mother is white and he was raised by his white grandparents in a white world and yet he promotes the fact that he is "black". I don't believe he ever visited his other family in Africa until this election.

Maybe it's because he belongs to a church that has a pastor who is decidedly anti-white and anti-white American and pro radical blacks such as Louis Farrrakhan, Nation of Islam leader.

Maybe it's because he has not much experience in politics and has not, until last week, made any real policy statements other than that he would talk to the dictators of the world and I guess that would make them our friends. The policy statements that he finally made involved spending huge amounts of money in a time when the West is in a serious financial situation with China owning most of the US debt.

Maybe it is because the Hollywood "stars" all seem to love him so much. That would be the same people who revere Fidel Castro and think that he is a genius in spite of the fact that they would have been rounded up and put to death, like many Cuban writers and artists were, if they did, in fact, live in Cuba.

Maybe is the extreme adoration that is going on with most Americans for this charismatic orator in spite of the fact that he has never proven himself to be a good politician or a leader or to have any of the experience that is certainly needed to be the leader of the free world.

Or, maybe it's because so much of this situation is pretty much as described in the Bible about the coming of the anti-Christ.

Conservatives of Ontario Unite

You have had your vote and now it is time to unite behind John Tory. I realize that some of you would have liked an 80% approval vote but 67% is a win no matter how you look at it.

Please set aside any bad feelings that you have and work at making people feel positive about Conservatives for Ontario. John Tory is a good, well-meaning man who made a "political" mistake in the last election. Unfortunately (or fortunately) he tries to do what he thinks is right even though it may not be the expedient political thing to do. I am sure he has learned from the last election and will be a regular politician next time saying only what will get him and you elected - too bad it has to be that way.

For the sake of those of us in Ontario who cannot stand the lying Liberal way and the lying Dalton, please work with him and show Ontarioans that Conservatism is right for Ontario in the interim and in the next election.

It's time for the Conservatives to return to power and work toward a better Ontario for all of us!

Boybott Loblaws

Loblaws apparently has a problem with shrinkage much of which they are blaming on staff. In order to deal with this problem they will no longer hire anyone with a criminal record. I understand they they have a situation to deal with but I cannot believe that this is a solution which is good for them or for society.

I doubt that people are aware of how many jobs are not available to people with a criminal record of any kind. They cannot be bonded although their record may have nothing to do with theft. They cannot have jobs, such as selling cars, if they require a license. Many, many companies will not hire anyone with a criminal record, no matter what the circumstance.

People say that if you do the crime you must do the time. They want you to straighten up and live right and become a productive member of society but then they make it impossible for you to do so. Nobody wants to take a chance on you so that you can, in fact, become that productive citizen.

Often young people do one stupid thing such as a minor theft or being charged with assault after an altercation. Should they be prohibited from obtaining a job indefinitely for that?

I doubt also that most people are aware of how many people get into the "justice" system and end up with a criminal record although they have not committed a criminal act. The family court system in particular seems to delight in charging men with a vast number of charges when a woman decides to lay a false charge. In order to get out of the situation without bankrupting their entire family to pay legal costs, they are given the option of accepting one or two of the charges (usually their choice) so that the others can be dropped. Often that is the only way to avoid going to jail or financial ruin for their families so they accept a couple of charges even though they may never have committed an illegal act. Unfortunately, what these men are not aware of in pleading to a criminal charge is that they will never see their children again and they will find it almost impossible to get a job of any kind.

How on earth is anyone with a criminal charge expected to become a productive member of society when it is made impossible by that very society? Has Loblaws or other companies who will not even consider people with a criminal record given any thought to what this does to the very society they are so concerned about?

There are many, many people with minor criminal records in this situation and many families who are trying to help them. I think we should all band together and boycott Loblaws and all their other stores such as Zehr's, Super Store, etc. I think we should all send a protest to Loblaws and let them know that we will not be sending any more cash their way until they re-think this policy. Since money is their motivation, let's not give them any of ours. I will be sending my protest. Will you?

Police stupidity
