In our last Blanche report we asked why the mayor of Montreal is mixing into everyone’s business. Doesn’t he have what to do with his life? Well, we now know what he’s busy with – birthday parties. In 2017 Montreal will be celebrating its 375th birthday. Big whoop. Blanche, that’s what you say. But the person who is able to spend OPM – other people’s money is singing a different tune.
Coderre is searching with candles where to spend our money and punkt – someone came up with this beauty: $3.5 million to put up 27 granite ‘tree stumps’ in a few different places in the city. Got that? Never mind that they are closing hospital beds due to lack of funds. Who cares about sick people? They won’t be at the birthday party anyway.
Coderre is an impulsive person who has his hands on millions and millions of dollars and doesn’t know where to spend it first. It is obvious that the only one he is accountable to is himself. What a great gig.
Montreal cabbies are missing a few screws. Their latest threat is that if, by next Friday June 10, the bill forcing Uber drivers to obtain permits is not passed, the cabbies are going to have a major temper tantrum, threatening to upset the festivals this summer. Can we talk?
One wonders at the level of stupidity of the taxi drivers. Let’s face it, rocket scientists they are not. If they tick the public off enough, Uber will become, pardon the pun, uber popular and the taxi drivers, many of whom don’t know a one-way street from a two-way street, will be left in the dust. Obama tried to talk about Trump without a teleprompter. It wasn’t pretty. We’ll call a spade a spade. He stuttered. Big time. Blanche, you’re dizguzting. If, if, if, if, if, if, we fall ffffffffffffoooooooooorrrrrrr Tttttttrrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuummmmmpppppp…
His brain turned to mush and he had not the faintest hint of a clue what to say. And, this ladies and gentlemen, is the president of the United States of America. Maybe someone should give him a suggestion before he starts his speaking tours: speech therapy.
Wouldn’t you like to spend a weekend at Bernie’s? Remember that insane movie where they put dead Bernie in the back seat and went on a road trip? Well folks, it’s coming to a theater near you yet again. This time Bernie’s not dead though, he’s alive and kicking Hilary as hard as he can.
Much to the chagrin of the Democrats and of course the Clinton’s, Bernie is raining on their parade. What we are witnessing is nothing short of a tsunami of revolt. If it were not for the super delegates who vote at the convention, Bernie would most likely win.
What will cause the revolt is that those super delegates are the old guard establishment, exactly what Bernie is fighting about. That convention will definitely be weekend at Bernie’s, especially if he wins California and all the remaining states. That will mean he has the popular vote and Hillary will get in using the old-crony trick.
Here’s something to ponder: Jacques Parizeau is dead for one year and the Montreal headquarters of the Caisse de Depot is named after him. Mordechai Richler died in July 2001 and the gazebo is still not built and becoming the mother-of-all jokes. Dizguzting.
Good Shabbos, We’ll talk…
