The Thought Of The First Day

'Christy Clark is going to take us all on a journey. A short one but still, a journey...'

First, she's going to take us to Lilliput to meet the BC Lilliputians. Always at war with the NDPee Blefuscusians. There, we'll learn how to pee on authority. Her authority.

Next, she's going to take us to Brobdingnag to see the selfish Giant Political Airheads and learn about Parliamentary Body Odor.

We'll continue our journey to Laputa, the Floating Island,where we'll meet the hideous Struldbuggs. Time to introduce the new Ministries and Ministers composed of useless philosophers, inventors, and scientists. We'll meet her idol, the Universal Artist, the New Civilized Person "who directs his followers to turn useful things into the exact opposite, which results in useless achievements. Some of the experiments held were to create tangible air, wool-less sheep, and horses with stone hooves."
Hence the new names...Ministry of Custard Pastry, Ministry of Flip-Flopping, Ministry of Low Achievement, Ministry of Perpetual Searching,Ministry of Smoke and Mirrors, Ministry of Offense and Misdemeanors, Ministry of Inter Parliamentary Dating, Ministry of Green Pasta Primavera,and last but not least...the Ministry of Revenge a.k.a the 'Tsakumis' Ministry.

Finally we'll reach the uncivilized Yahoos from the land of Houyhnhnms who'd teach us the use proper use of our own Dung, or Bullshit in modern speak.


Then, the day will come when she'll take you all back home.
I'll stay in Lilliput.

We live in Vancouver and this keeps us busy

I am glad to learn that Minister Coleman will be retaining the housing portfolio. He has made great strides in this area so far and as he has the knowledge of what still needs to be done, he is the right choice.

i wonder how the seniors at the converted building in the West End (Sunset Towers) feel about Minister Coleman?

No Mo?!!!!(Stillwell)

No good!
