If Mayor Rob Ford resigns (which he should),
maybe he should take some time to ponder the little things in his life!?
Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford has been embroiled for the past week in a scandal involving his alleged use of crack cocaine.
The problems for Rob Ford continue to mount. Perhaps the most damaging for Ford and his family is the
Globe and Mail investigation: The Ford family’s history with drug dealing.
It’s time for Rob Ford to do the right thing and resign. Doug Ford would be wise to announce his “retirement” too!
The Ford Brothers “dynasty is in ruins ~ “They go out there and they want to write these stories. They want to try and ruin our family,” he said. “They want to go after the character of our family.”
The problem for the Fords is the “WE” in his quote. “WE” are tired of this incredible farce!
It’s difficult for people to trust Rob Ford. How can the city continue to function with him as mayor?

No. 1, I don’t understand a transgender, I don’t understand, is it a guy dressed up like a girl or a girl dressed up like a guy? And we’re funding this for, I don’t know, what does it say here?

I think it’s more important we take care of the people now before we start bringing in more. There are going to be a million more people — according to the Official Plan, which I did not support – over the next 10 years coming into the city. We’re not in the fiscal shape, we’re not in the social shape, to be taking any more people into this city right now.” Previously, in March 2003, Ford had suggested Toronto be declared a “refugee-free zone.”|

Webster’s contract stipulates he is to be paid more than $560,000 in salary (plus benefits) over two years, in compensation for being fired without just cause, about $160,000 more than if he had been allowed to work until his planned retirement in July 2013.

Grandparents are funny!
“Grandparents are a delightful blend of laughter,
caring deeds, wonderful stories and love.”
The idea that no one is perfect is a view
most commonly held by people with no grandchildren.
- Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure, the founders of a loving legacy, The greatest storytellers, the keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory. Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation. Their very special love sets them apart. Through happiness and sorrow, through their special love and caring, grandparents keep a family close at heart. ~author unknown
- Surely, two of the most satisfying experiences in life must be those of being a grandchild or a grandparent. ~Donald A. Norberg
Grandparents bring about a side that you probably wish that’s how your parents dealt with you while you were a child. Abundance of indulgence and unwavering love. ~ author unknown
- Even young grandparents seem enormously old to a small child, although the child may politely deny it. One small girl, feeling proud of reaching the monumental age of four, turned to her young-looking grandmother and asked, “How come I’m so old if you’re so new?” ~Alison Judson Ryerson
- What is it about grandparents that is so lovely? I’d like to say that grandparents are God’s gifts to children. And if they can but see, hear and feel what these people have to give, they can mature at a fast rate. ~Bill Cosby
- Grandparents are similar to a piece of string – handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of their grandchildren. ~Author Unknown

Tiger Woods was assessed a two stoke penalty at the Masters for an illegal drop!
Who called in to let the officials know that Tiger Woods took an illegal drop?
There are a number of conspiracy theories
but many believe that the call was from Sweden.
Apparently a beautiful Swedish viewer was the caller!
The Masters Rules committee says a 2 stroke penalty is enough!
The Golf Channel “experts” say he should disqualify himself.
What do think Tiger Woods should do after being told he made an illegal drop.
1. He should be disqualified.
2. Tiger Woods’ Penalty Should Have Been Assessed On The Spot Or Not At All
2. A two stroke penalty is enough
4. Tiger should continue to play
5. Tiger Woods should disqualify himself
If Tiger Woods disqualifies himself from the masters for the illegal drop, one thing is certain. TV ratings will go way down. Most of the “experts”, who are fuelling this scandal, on the Golf Channel should realize that their jobs probably wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Tiger!

I thought this little “Joke” about leagalizing marijuana was quite timely.
A recent poll showed
a majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana!
And with 420 Day fast approaching!!!
A Senator in the USA was once asked about his attitude toward legalizing marijuana.
“If you are talking about the substance that is an effective treatment of seizures and migraines, that also helps MS patients, and relieves pain, nausea and vomiting and increases appetite in people with cancer and AIDS. The substance that relaxes its users in this terribly stressful world? Can you imagine the tax revenue that we senators could put to good use to help the 99%. Then I’m all for legalizing marijuana. Besides, there is no existing evidence of anyone dying of a marijuana overdose.”
‘However, If you mean the demon weed that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, and desecrates family life, then I’m against it.
This is my position, and I will not compromise.’
Funny Quotes about Hypocritical Politicians
A hypocrite is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation.
Adlai E. Stevenson
In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
- Autobiography of Mark Twain
The political and commercial morals of the United States are not merely food for laughter, they are an entire banquet.
- Mark Twain in Eruption
I was really too honest a man to be a politician and live.

A majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana!
Why not Legalize Marijuana???
With the recent very Disappointing job growth in March
and the incredible growing gap between the rich and the 99%,
You would think the the Powers that be in America,
might want to keep the masses HAPPY.
Because if the Masses aren’t happy…
Friday’s employment report for March badly missed Wall Street’s estimates, and turned in the lowest nonfarm employment growth since June.
Should be an interesting National Weed Day this year!
(April 20 or 420 day )
If America is a Democracy, then the answer is easy.
We can’t legalize marijuana because it’s:
It could hurt you!
It could ruin your life!!!
Not like alcohol, base jumping, bull riding, heli-skiing, surfing, car racing, sky diving, or playing football (concussions)
Marijuana is safer than Peanuts!
As if arresting you and jailing you for marijuana possession won’t ruin your life.
Maybe American Politicians will not vote to legalize Marijuana
because they don’t receive donations from the Marijuana Lobby!
(YET! Wonder who will be the first?)
Some Sad Facts:
The government is arresting more than 700,000 marijuana users a year — that’s one arrest every 42 seconds — which is more than the number of arrests for robbery and all violent crimes combined. (And about 88% of all marijuana arrests are for possession, not sale or manufacture.)
Twenty-five-year-old Weldon Angelos celebrated Christmas in federal prison this year … just like he’ll do every year until he’s 80. Last month, Angelos was sentenced to 55 years in prison for selling marijuana to undercover police officers. As U.S. District Judge Paul Cassell pointed out at sentencing, that’s more time than he would have received if he had hijacked an airplane (25 years), beaten someone to death in a fight (13 years), or raped a 10-year-old child (11 years).
Over 500 leading economists signed An Open Letter to the President, Congress, Governors, and State Legislatures on the benefits of legalizing marijuana.
Text of Letter Signed By 500+ Economists:
We, the undersigned, call your attention to the attached report by Professor Jeffrey A. Miron, The Budgetary Implications of Marijuana Prohibition. The report shows that marijuana legalization — replacing prohibition with a system of taxation and regulation — would save $7.7 billion per year in state and federal expenditures on prohibition enforcement and produce tax revenues of at least $2.4 billion annually if marijuana were taxed like most consumer goods. If, however, marijuana were taxed similarly to alcohol or tobacco, it might generate as much as $6.2 billion annually.
The fact that marijuana prohibition has these budgetary impacts does not by itself mean prohibition is bad policy. Existing evidence, however, suggests prohibition has minimal benefits and may itself cause substantial harm.
We therefore urge the country to commence an open and honest debate about marijuana prohibition. We believe such a debate will favor a regime in which marijuana is legal but taxed and regulated like other goods. At a minimum, this debate will force advocates of current policy to show that prohibition has benefits sufficient to justify the cost to taxpayers, foregone tax revenues, and numerous ancillary consequences that result from marijuana prohibition.
If you legalize marijuana, then who will fill all these incredible prisons?
Amazing Growth of Prisons in the USA!
With more than 2.3 million people locked up, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world. One out of 100 American adults is behind bars — while a stunning one out of 32 is on probation, parole or in prison. This reliance on mass incarceration has created a thriving prison economy.
