two faced, dishonest, back stabbing, underhanded, cheating people who are willing to con you or steal from you while smiling to your face. Basically the kind of weasels that one would never want in his or her life. This is the attitude that led to the collapse of Wall street and needing a tax payer bail out and which started this last recession. FORD and 7 UP support this greedy attitude with their advertising dollars. I will never buy a Ford or 7 UP again. I was about to buy a car but it will definitely not be a Ford. If you support honesty and fair mindedness please forward this blog to all your friends. Lets occupy via our TV's

A vicious elbow to any head is an assault. An elbow covered with hard plastic and delivered with forceful muscle to a persons head can cause serious injury. It is not hard to prove that this is an assault. The defense would be based on consent.When a player consents to a fight he can not be heard to complain about it if he suffers injury. This is covered by the Latin maxim known as "Volenti non fit injuria". This maxim has saved the NHL a special place. But but! There are public limits to the amount of injury a player can consent to. These are defined by the courts. And they include any injury that is long lasting or PERMANENT. The present day happenings on the ice exceeds the allowable limits as defined in a criminal court and need a public review in a criminal court. Not by the NHL. The NHL has shown itself unable to define this appropriately
The present violence happening on the ice whereby the star players are targeted so as to cause injury and take them out of the game thereby enhancing the offender's teams chances of winning is criminal. The state of Pennsylvania or the Province of BC needs to charge the offenders with assault and send them to jail and seek a sentence of years that will be a serious deterrent to others. THIS needs to happen now and put an end to the violence that has over taken the NHL.
Danial Sedin got an elbow to the head from Duncan Keith from the Chicago Blackhawks that has taken Sedin, the number 1 scorer with the Canucks, out of the playoffs and thereby affecting Vancouver's chances of winning the Stanley Cup. No player when the agrees to play NHL hockey can consent to that kind of violence. This is dictated by public policy not by social bullies like Don Cherry, Shanahan or some other idiot passing himself off as an analyst on some sports show and saying "oh this is playoff hockey" Fuck you. There is no hockey that allows an infringement of "Volenti non fit injuria", as dictated by the public interests, as defined by a criminal court.
Additionally the NHL has shown an inability to be consistent. When Duncan Keith delivered his intentional vicious elbow to Danial Sedin's head he got 2 minutes from O'Hallaran. When Byron Bitz with Vancouver delivered his intentional but less vicious elbow to Kyle Clifford's head he got 5 minutes, and a game misconduct from O'Rourke allowing LA to score a goal and affect the outcome of the game. Why the difference? Unless you are trying to affect the games outcome. Why the inconsistency? The Vancouver Canucks, a Canadian team, always get the short end of this inconsistency. Why?

Seriously, in this country, especially in BC, we need to do something to change the direction of taxation. We have been led down the path to financial injustice by too many left wing parties to a path that is not sustainable where by there are two classes of people: the government class and the rest of us. There are those who are rich based on the receipt of an income and a pension and endless benefits (medical and dental) and bonuses from government.
These people think taxes are an endless source of money for them and then there are the class of people who pay taxes every way we turn. There are taxes on food now the HST (whenever that comes to an end). The GST tax on food will remain. There are taxes on gas which is a tax built into the price of food. There are taxes on hydro and of course there are taxes on income. There are property taxes and the sales taxes on everything we buy besides food. People who work for the public payroll always want more and the Liberal, or left wing politicians, always give them more.
We need a hard nosed political party that is of the people, that is by the people and that is for the people AND not by and for the government people. Canadians have for too long been too trusting of government thinking they would always act for us in our best interests. But we ignored that they were acting for their best interests, that is for their pocket books all along. THIS trust of government must end. We don't just have one King we have a few 100,000 kings hiding under the name of civil servants
I don't believe this will end without violence and I mean a good old fashioned Boston Tea party right here in Canada, a revolution complete with guns and shootings. Then and only then will the government class take it serious and make a readjustment. It is time Canadians lost their reputation for being polite; too polite. We have been fools for too long.
It won't happen in Quebec because they are too Catholic which is no more or less then a religious left wing. They still buy into the old catholic idea that it is as hard for a rich man to get into heaven as it is for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. In the next federal election the NDP must be shut out of Canada and isolated to Quebec.
In BC the Liberal and NDP must both be shut out. We need a leader to stand up for people in BC and for people to trust him or her. Where is he?
Alternatively in the same fashion that Ronald Reagon brought down communism with the use of 20% interests rates, which brought the Berlin Wall. These can be used to bring down this government class. When interests rates start hitting 12 or 13 % you will see that revolution right here in Canada. No more politeness just a lot of FUCK you government assholes, teachers and nurses included. WE have been too optimistic to think that the ones we elect will actually do something about this problem.

Maybe it is time to bring out more then a watering can as obviously this problem needs some serious attention.
