A Few Flakes Short of a Box

Target is buzzing out of Canada and they’re clearing out their stores. People thought – wahoo! bargoons. Not so fast. Just like they were arrogant coming in, they are arrogant going out. No bargains, no goods, no staff and nobody in the stores.

Maybe they plan on taking their stuff back to the US. Certainly giving a 10% discount will not bring too many people into their stores. Here’s something that doesn’t need a rocket scientist to figure out. Obama doesn’t like people. Now guess who figured it out early on in the game? Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He’s a smart guy and yes, he has emotions.

Early on in the game he told ex-Obama advisor, David Axelrod, “You know what his problem is? You have to like people to be successful. You have to connect. I saw him greet people at the golf course. You probably told him to do it. But he doesn’t feel it.” Really?

Here’s a small flash: Obama is like Bernie in Weekend at Bernie’s. He’s emotionless. His voice doesn’t go up or down. He could be sitting in the middle seat in the back of a car and no one would notice he was there. Weekend at Obama aka Bernies.

We are not going to focus on the measles, but this week that disease could be the reason that Rand Paul may never become president of the US. We actually heard the interview when he said, “They (vaccines) should be largely voluntary, as a matter of freedom. He also said he had heard of children who “wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.” Special eh?

Wait, it gets better. After his vaccine comments drew angry reactions, he accused the media of misconstruing his remarks about vaccines and mental disorders.

“I did not say vaccines caused disorders, just that they were temporally related,” Paul said in a statement. “I did not allege causation.” Why can’t America find normal, intelligent people to run for president?

Yet another major company has been hacked. Each time this happens the stakes get higher. This time it was Anthem, the nation’s second-largest health insurer. Attackers gained unauthorized access to Anthem’s IT system and have obtained personal information from their current and former members such as their names, birthdays, medical IDs, social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data.

Don’t these companies have firewalls, bells, whistles, sirens – something to alert them that they are being targeted?

There was a small article in the Montreal Gazette today that Montrealers are being ripped off at the gas pumps. Trust us, you need half the brain of a tsetse fly to figure that one out. Let’s see, every time there is a long weekend the price goes up – just like that. Just before most weekends the price goes up – just like that.

Here are a few more stats to make you want to bring out the barf bag: Montrealers pay the highest gas taxes in Canada; 36% of the price of a litre of gas goes to taxes – most other provinces it’s 31%; we pay 3 cents a litre to fund Montreal’s transportation system. And what about that every single gas station goes up at the exact same time? Nauseous.

PKP – Pierre Karl Peladeau who is running for the leadership of the separatist PQ party finally admitted that he still exercises control over Quebecor media. Let’s see now, that would be most major newspapers, TV and radio stations. He claims that he is not running the day-to-day operations. We will state publicly that he will not win the leadership race. He’s lucky his father was born before him. What that really means is he’s a rich guy but very, very short of a box of corn flakes. In fact, he’s a flake. Hehehehehe.

Good Shabbos,

We’ll talk…
