In case you’re not sure why they are not firing the coach of the Canadiens here’s a good part of the answer. Molson, who owns the team gave the general manager, Marc Bergevin a sweet, 8 year contract. The general manager then went ahead and gave the coach, Michel Therrien, a 4 year contract.
So if they were to let go either of those two dudes, it would cost a pretty penny and then some to break their contracts. Ya certainly can’t fire the owner, who made the dumbest move of all.
The players obviously have lost all desire to play and the word win has been erased from their vocabulary. We are also getting sick of hearing how upset PK Suban is, throwing his stick and banging on locker doors. He’s a spoiled brat making gzillions of dollars and not playing hockey. Shut-up, stop having temper tantrums, start playing hockey and earning your inflated salary. Now if you’re looking for someone really in trouble, check out Hillary. She’s in deep dog doodoo. The chatter is that if Hillary is having so much trouble against a socialist senator from Vermont with a beyond-parody Brooklyn Jewish accent, it’s because many of those voters are more driven by being anti-Hillary than pro-Bernie. And that’s bad news. If the Democrat race becomes ABH – anybody but hillary – she’s toast before she starts.
Never mind the endless stories about emails, if she erased 30,000 or 100,000. Can you imagine that on Monday night in Iowa, in the middle of nowhere land, when she got up to speak saying that she was a progressive person people were shouting liar at her? Nasty.
Read this and weep then get very angry: Gas prices in Ottawa are below 70cents a liter. Don’t you wonder when people here will rise up against the insane gas prices that go up at the whim of some mysterious group?
Ever hear of Daallo Airlines? Most likely not. It’s the airline of Somalia. It seems that some dude bypassed rigorous security screening in Mogadishu and got on a plane with a bomb. It appears he used the old wheelchair trick.
Unfortunately, he got his just desserts so to say when he detonated the bomb and got sucked out of the plane. Oops.
And now some tidbits about the election business down south:
The Donald screwed up when he decided not to join in the last debate because he was in a fight with Megan Kelly. It may have cost him Iowa. As an astute businessman, he’s not going to make that mistake again.
He had originally scheduled two campaign events in New Hampshire, site of the first primary on Tuesday February 9. He upped his events to five including an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, a meeting with local business owners and an event with the Manchester Police Department. He’s a quick student and realized that pouting about his loss in Iowa was not going to help him.
In an unusual statement, the Des Moines Register (that’s Des Moines Iowa site of this week’s caucus), called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday’s results are correct.
The piece titled “Something smells in the Democratic Party”, went on to say, and we quote: “Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems. Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night’s chaos.”
Blanche, you can already guess who doesn’t want a recount. Hillary of course who won by about 23 votes. If there was a recount and she lost in Iowa that would be a disaster because she is down by about 50% in New Hampshire, sister state to Verrrrrmont, where walking around downtown Burlington without a top on is just fine. It’s Bernie territory.
Everyone has no doubt heard that Loew’s bought Reno Depot. Blanche, did you also hear that PKP, the erstwhile leader of the separatist party is aghast that the head office of Reno might eventually move to Mooresville, North Carolina. Can we talk? We know he’s dense, but he sounds like someone poured cement into his head.
For the past thirty or so years every head office known to man has left this backwater province due to harassment from the government, executives unable to put their children into English school and other nasty laws that were thrust upon them. Now he’s waking up and saying that Reno might be shipped south? PKP is a dufus and that’s on a good day.
Celine Dion held a huge goodbye party for her late husband Rene in Las Vegas. Problem is she forgot to put on the top of her dress. Blanche, honestly, do people have to see everything? Plus she doesn’t have, shall we delicately say, much on top? She kind of looks like a blackboard with a head. Blanche, you’re really dizuguzting. Are we the only ones who find it beyond strange that Jian Ghomeshi has a woman for a lawyer? We’re not talking about women’s rights. We’re saying that he’s such a lowlife and did such degrading things to women, why would a woman defend him? Oh, right. Money. Sell your soul for money. Fech.
There’s a half-way house in Laval for kids that their parents cannot control or handle. It seems that in the past year, over 700 have escaped or run away. In the past week alone, three girls ran away, seemingly into the hands of the underworld. Something smells here. Actually, it stinks. Why did it take until now, until some parents came forward pleading for people to help them find their daughter for this to come to light? We certainly hope that this will be investigated by the authorities – not from Laval.
Good Shabbos We’ll talk…
