"Where else would you go when you have an ax to grind?"

Clearly I woke up in some sort of alternate dimension this morning...

I...uh...holy sh...I mean...WHAT?!?!

If my life were an old cartoon (and it often seems that way) this is the part where I would reach into my pocket, pull out an oversize bottle marked with several Xs and throw it over my shoulder.

It was worse than I heard. Others held back and only critiqued, but you went ahead and posted it. I might never feel safe viewing a video at the wood shed again.

Don't toss that bottle of XXX out, pass it over to me . . . to help me forget what I just saw.

Is it possible to feel slightly embarrassed for someone you've never cared for?

Sassy, it would take a fake lake of whisky to wash away memory of that -- and I don't dare look at what might be on You Tube. What are the odds that someone has posted the entire performance somewhere?

I'll second this comment:

Is it possible to feel slightly embarrassed for someone you've never cared for?

And raise it to:

Is it possible to feel slightly embarrassed for someone you've always intensely hated?

Re: Public G20 Enquiry

Last summer's G20 abuses in my city were appalling. I demand a full official G20 Public Enquiry, with the jurisdiction to ask all fundamental questions and the authority to compel the answers. I wanted to take my family to peacefully protest that weekend but I was too scared. Where is our democracy? Where are my rights and freedoms as a Canadian I am supposed to be entitled to?

What we need is a full public inquiry, we need a judicial inquiry, we need an independent inquiry, we need an inquiry with full powers to hear sworn evidence, subpoena witnesses and compel the production of all relevant documents. I demand this.

• There needs to be a Commission of Inquiry into abuses of individual rights and freedoms by the G20 Integrated Security Unit.

• There needs to be an investigation into the options, risk analysis, and decision-making that led to the G20 Summit being held in Toronto Ontario.

• There needs to be an investigation into imputed G8-related spending in federal ridings held by CPC Members of Parliament.

• There needs to be an investigation into all G8/G20-related expenditures made without a tender process.

• There needs to be a plain English explanation of all agreements and commitments made by the Government of Canada and opportunity for parliamentary debate and vote before they become binding on Canada.

Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter.

I liked the part when he sung about "the day I die"! Someday, someday, eh?

When I do thing badly with other old guys, like hockey, tennis, or playing guitar, I have the common courtesy to not inflict it on others. And really, "Share the Land" by the Guess Who? Reminds me of Reagan and "Pink Houses".
