Poor, poor Hugh. He`s stuck playing Charlie Brown……again. I can only imagine the scene over at the Omega Theta Pi Frat House when they were discussing their latest scheme. “Hey, Hugh!”, says brother Neidermeyer, “I know how we can fix that Greg Selinger, real good!” “How’s that?”, says Hugh. “Let’s challenge him!”, says Neidermeyer. “Challenge […] . . . → Read More: McFadyen Brings Knife to Gun Fight

Seriously Hugh. The “leak” of your election platform is as disengenuous as the document itself. So the polling that now has you ten points back has also showed that Manitobans are in no mood for the cuts in public services that you have been advocating for. In response, the Team McFadyen brain trust has decided […] . . . → Read More: Hugh’ve got to be kidding me
We know that Hugh McFadyen’s personal ideology would compel him to balance the Budget on a year-over basis.

We know that Hugh McFadyen and some of his supporters think that issue of crime is a game, a ball to be taken out every once an awhile and played with. Used to suit their own personal agenda.

Today’s Freep has a piece by Dan Lett in it about how Hugh McFadyen and his team are “holding their fire” in this “pre-writ” period. I say, “pre-writ” period, because McFadyen has been campaigning for the past two years. This notion that Team Hughie is somehow just sitting back and working on their election infrastructure […] . . . → Read More: Hugh wants a “do-over”?
The thing about Hugh McFadyen that sets off people’s bullshit detectors is his penchant for resorting to stunts that are cheap, cheesy, and perhaps worthy of a Junior running for Class President, but notsomuch when it comes to being the Premier. It’s the whole lack of maturity thing. One would thing that a man of […] . . . → Read More: Do No Pass Go! No Soup for You!
On Monday we had Ian Rab and Myrna Driedger parroting the claims of the Winnipeg Scum that the government was beng unethical because they announced programmes and services for Manitobans. Today we have Ian Rab and Team Hughie wannaba Scott Gillingham doing their Twitter sock puppet routine on behalf of Colin Craig of the Canadian […] . . . → Read More: Where, oh where?
So late yesterday Team Hughie wannabe Ian Rab and Myrna Driedger pecked out this little <140 character missive on the tweeter. ”NDP buying votes with you| Winnipeg Sun http://t.co/DrFapIz” OK, so it’s a link to a Winnipeg Scum article about the plethora of government announcements over the past while. Now, the article that was being […] . . . → Read More: Just the facts ma’am
Guess Hugh McFadyen finally woke up and realized that his strategy to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is working. Good on you Hugh. Today McFadyen issued his call to arms and wants the Premier to call the Legislature back into session because Hugh’s duck-and-cover strategy needs saving…..er, rather to deal with the flooding.

It’s not often that malfunctions of a political mind are put so obviously on display. Well, expect for perhaps our dear friend, Hugh McFadyen. OK, we all know that on May 2nd, 2011 Stephen Harper got his majority government. In large part, Sir Stephen was given his coveted majority because farmers in Western Canada voted […] . . . → Read More: On no he di’nt!
Way back in the before time, when I was a young’un, in my circle of friends there was an arrogant little shit by the name of Scott Browntree. In addition to being little, and more than a little arrogant, Scott always had an undeserved sense of self-entitlement about him and a very annoying habit of being […] . . . → Read More: What else? – The Jets!
Interesting. Earlier this week the news broke the that the Province is looking at providing assistance to the MTS Centre to bring an NHL team back to Winnipeg.

We know that without reducing the amount of water flowing through the Assinniboine River, the river would have breached the banks between Elie and Winnipeg causing uncontrolled flooding.

Still on the Futurama theme. Couple of interetsing items in the news today. We have the Conference Board of Canada releasing their report on the ability of the Winnipeg and Quebec City markets to support an NHL team. I’m not the biggest hockey fan in the world. However, I do support the Jets coming back […] . . . → Read More: Good news everybody!
Well, just think about it for a moment. No more crime. The Conservatives have promised to “get tough on crime”. Now that they have their Majority, there are no more excuses. Given that they are men of their word, I expect crime to cease and desist. Be gone, kind of like the BQ. It was […] . . . → Read More: I for one welcome our new Conservative Overlords
To be honest, the difference between a Tory Majority and a Tory Minorty in terms of policy is neglible. Had the Tories been held to a Minority, the Liberals would have propped them up anyway and the corporate creep would have continued. Now that they have their Majority, the gloves come off and the middle […] . . . → Read More: Tory Majority – Whatever

Strategic voting is an interesting animal. When applied to the left, the idea is that you should vote for the candidate that stands the best chance of defeating a Conservative.
