    Maybe because all the Canadian refineries are already working at capacity?

    Another good reason to build more.

    So that's quite the mayor you got yourselves, over there in Toronto.

    What a friggin trainwreck that guy is. The best part was the vid of him threatening to kill some unnamed individual in a wild, incoherent and profanity-laced tirade.

    Maybe Alec Baldwin can take the job once he resigns. He's certainly a huge enough asshole to cover the bases.

    I like Ford. He is just what a politician should be: A roly poly punching bag who displays his foibles for all to see, rather than smoking them in private and pretending to be an honest john.

    He's yours.
    You can have Harper too, for free.

    I doubt if Ford could make it across the border. Some 22-year old border agent will google him and freak out, turn him right around with a firm spanking and send him home. Harper... well, he has a diplomatic passport, I imagine, but once he gets here he'll have some splainin to do.

    It's beginning to look like Ford couldn't make it even as far as the border. He seems to get his foot into his mouth by about the third step.

    Makes one wonder how he managed to get elected doesn't it? I mean.... I for one knew he was a buffoon before the election. Yet there he is. Was the alternative actually seen as being so much worse?

    It's the new politics, based on blind ideology. You have to understand that the Hogtown of old no longer exists. It is now an enforced amalgamation of the original city with its suburbs. The burbs outnumber the lefty/artsy/commie/pinko freaks in the town and were easily convinced to go with a typical string of tax-cutting, intellectual elites-smashing, public transit-cancelling right wing crappola.

    Ford does seem to epitomise his neocon oppos across the border. If WYSIWYG applies, I wouldn't like to get it.

    Sort of a Senator Bedfellow type, just a touch more malignant.

    SNL did a funny skit on the mayor's attempt at recovery.

    Aren't we lucky. Toronto's idiot mayor has entered the celebrity stratosphere beside brangelina and the kardashians. Now we'll never get rid of him.

    The televised proceedings of Hogtown City Hall look like the War between the Morons and the Pencilnecks. It's unclear iwho may win but it's certain who will lose.

    Never cut a pencilneck up for fish bait. All the fish will die.

    PENCIL NECK GEEK
    (Pete Cicero / Martin Margulies)

    Freddie Blassie



    Back when I was a kid, life was going swell.
    Till something happened, blew every thing to hell.
    That night my daddy stumbled in, all pale and weak,
    Said "A woman up the block just gave birth to a geek."

    Mom said, "Sell it to the circus, what the heck."
    Dad said, "Nope, this one's a pencil neck.
    And if there's one thing lower than a side show freak,
    It's a grit eatin', scum suckin', pencil neck geek."

    You see if you take a pencil that won't hold lead,
    Looks like a pipe cleaner attached to a head,
    Add a buggy whip body with a brain that leaks,
    You got yourself a grit eatin', pencil neck geek.

    (chorus)
    Pencil neck geek, grit eatin' freak,
    scum suckin', pea head with a lousy physique.
    He's a one man, no gut, loosing streak.
    Nothin' but a pencil neck geek.

    Soon the geeks were poppin' up all over town.
    You couldn't hardly sneeze without knockin' one down.
    After a nice juicy steak, if you need a toothpick,
    Just reach for a geek, they'll do the trick.

    One day we cut one up for fish bait.
    Learned our lesson just a little bit late.
    Soon as the geek hit the drink, the water turned red.
    Next day, sure enough, all the fish were dead.

    chorus

    Most any night you know where I can be found.
    Yeah, stomping some geek's head into the ground.
    So keep the faith 'cause in Blassie you can trust,
    I won't give up 'til the last geek bites the dust.

    chorus

    They say, "these geeks come a dime a dozen."
    I'm lookin' for the guy who's supplin' the dimes.
    Its gonna be real hard times for all of these
    grit eatin',
    scum suckin',
    boot lickin',
    drop kickin',
    gut grindin',
    nail bitin',
    glue sniffin',
    scab pickin',
    butt scratchin',
    egg hatchin',
    sleezy,
    smelly,
    pepper bellied,
    dirty, lousy, rotten, stinkin', freaks.
    Nothing but a pencil neck geek.

    Pencil neck geek.
    Pencil neck geek.
    Pencil neck geek.

    37 millions bees found dead in Ontario, Canada after planting large GMO corn field treated with neonicotinoid class of pesticides


    I tolt him. “Cecil”, I said, “don’t you go lettin’ them arthropods plant the north forty by theyselves. They be Stakhanovites. They just don’t know when to stop. They’ll do theyselves a injury.”

    But would he listen?

    Money for greedy fucks, chiefly politicians in the pockets of corporations. The system is rotten to the core.
