Still hitting the balls on the pro golf circuit

Not many golfers are planning on a full year of pro golf in their 40s let alone their 50s like Steve Pate.

Hot after winning The Nationwide Event in Bogota, Columbia last year, my cousin Steve says he is planning on planning all of this year’s events.

Over the weekend, he hit 2 under par 69 at the Stadion Classic.

Steve is heading for the Senior PGA Championship in Louisville, KY which starts on his 50th birthday – May 26th.

I was finishing supper at Churchill Friday night when Edith’s sisters invited me to use the 4th ticket then had to the Investors Group Atlantic Comedy Tour.

Stephen-Harper-working-hard

Corporate tax cuts cost you $500 a year

Stephen Harper is working hard to give your money to the big corporations

Stephen Harper working hard Corporate tax cuts cost you $500 a year photoA new website and Facebook page is taking the satirical approach to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

They want to thank him for working hard to make corporations and their executives richer.

The videos will appeal to some voters, already disinclined to support Harper.

Will they make any impression on the millions of Canadians under the hypnotic spell of Stephen Harper?

Harper-Facebook

Prime Minister Harper creeps out Facebook

Conservative Party blames it on RCMP but RCMP deny it – just following orders from Conservatives

Harper Facebook Prime Minister Harper creeps out Facebook photoPrime Minister Harper is ejecting people from his political rallies if their Facebook pages show any connection with the other political parties. You have to register to attend. It hardly seems like democracy.

Awish Aslam is a young student excitedly trying to take in Canada’s Election.

She attended a Liberal rally. She had her picture taken with the Leader Michael Ignatieff.

Then she posted the picture on her Facebook page. Just another event in her life, thought Awish, to share with friends on Facebook.

Wrong, Canada is becoming a police state and your Facebook page can get you in trouble.

When she tried to attend the rally for Conservative Prime Minister Harper, his security police told the RCMP to eject her as an undesirable.

Only “true conservatives” can attend rallies for Stephen Harper.

The innocence of the young clashes with the button down, control freak world of our Prime Minister

Words that come to mind: control freak, intolerant, fascist, liar.

Elections often show more about real motives than politicians would like.
