A shtikel late, but here it is…
Blanche, just because the rest of the world is asleep at the wheel, doesn’t mean we have to be like them.
Here’s what we scooped: The Quebec provincial election is Monday October 1, 2018. That date happens to be a Jewish holiday. Who knew? Certainly not the planners of the election.
We have written to our local MNA, Mr. David Birnbaum, but are not holding our breath that anything will be done. One of the points we made in our email was that people are looking for any excuse not to vote in the next election and the Liberal party has handed them a reason on a silver platter.
The more we read about the weather, the more we think that those people who can ‘predict’ what the weather will be in, oh, say 200 years are full of it. They can’t tell you what the weather will be in two hours, never mind 200 years.
On Thursday it appears that the east coast of the US is getting a ‘bomb cyclone’. The National Weather Service has posted winter storm watches from Lake City, Fla. to Norfolk, places that don’t normally get this kind of weather.
The storm will then head to the mid-Atlantic and eastern New England. Seems NY will be somewhat spared as will Montreal with both regions getting a dusting of snow that day. Percy Saltzman, where are you when we need you?
Next time you fly, best have a book with you. Airlines are getting rid of those seatback screens. Special eh?
First they squish you in like a sardine. Then they don’t serve you even a glass of water. And now, they expect you to sit like a dolt for two or three hours, staring into space.
It’s not that we need the screens, it’s the principle. Charge more, make the seats and aisles smaller and take away all amenities. Frankly, airlines are pigs.
The Montreal Canadiens aka the Habs are a pathetic excuse for a hockey team. We find it infuriating that they get paid astronimical salaries and are both not living up to any expectations at all and are wimps.
We had occasion to be with someone in the hospital recently. It is the doctors and nurses who should be getting the salaries of those hockey players. What exactly do they add to anyone’s life except sixty minutes of aggravation?
We are officially stating that the Habs players should donate half their salaries to the hard-working doctors and nurses. Maybe that would shake them out of their stupor.
Nikki Haley has it right, CNN and the NYTimes are totally off base. We speak about the Iranian uprisings taking place as we speak. Here are Haley’s comments:
“It takes great bravery for the Iranian people to use the power of their voice against their government, especially when that government has a long history of murdering its own people who dare to speak the truth… All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.”
A few weeks ago, Politico published a jaw-dropping, meticulously sourced investigative piece detailing how the Obama administration had secretly undermined US law enforcement agency efforts to shut down an international drug-trafficking ring run by the terror group Hezbollah. The effort was part of a wider push by the administration to placate Iran and ensure the signing of the nuclear deal.
Now, if CNN and the NYTimes, both lovers of Clinton and Obama are trying to protect them, they should all be put in jail. Lock them up!
