Major NATO exercise off Nova Scotia and Canada can not afford to attend.

Sheesh - get the local shore patrols out on a SAR or something.

Embarrassing.

They are all tied up.

Parking in the dockyard is at a premium with all the ships alongside.

LOL....the liberals dismantled the military...harper had nothing to do with it...matter of fact, he's throwing more in the kitty than the liberals did in the last dozen years or so....you can't blame the reigning opposition for what happened....today is just the consequences of a stupid liberal regime...

so what....

these are lean times..haven't you heard??? protect what we have first..then extend the base....parents should teach their kids to read..and parents who can't should learn...

Women want equality....find your own money...

Tax cuts for the poor??? What tax cuts for the poor? i doubt i'll notice [by that i mean my ex] the drop in income....

Really. You want solutions or do you want everyone to get through this 'comfortably'? i seriously doubt we're going to get both...

Canadian politicians know we won't do anything....as a society we've become so 'needy' and dependent on guidance....that's one thing canadians seem to lack...self respect.

my point was i'd sooner see a navey ship miss some exercises , and these other things not cut. it was also to point out that theres not much difference in the regimes tory or liberal. same circus, just different clowns. sadly clowns are supposed to make you laugh , not cry.

Twiggy, my friend...and i mean that...i just totally disagree that the money doesn't need to go to more important things....

and you are right...clowns indeed.....

and its better to laugh at them than think too hard about what our eleced leaders are doing....the medium is the message...they don't have to stand for anything...but in line at the trough....fame and fortune...its theatre...

you disagree that tax cuts to the poor and literacy programs are worth of our tax dollars?


i find it hard to laugh at ppeople charged with running our country, when all they are doing is wasteing tax dollars needlessly on golf courses,, patronage payouts, and propping up failing industrys, when mean while we have waitning lists for surgerys, dr shortages, and people struggling to make ends meet, who are given tax breaks ( all be them small) then taken away so the next circus clown can drop a consumer tax to make mercedes cheaper for there rich friends. call me crazy, but i dont find much to laugh about there. in fact it revolts me.

Strangly enough, a large percentage of the CF comes from people in the Atlantic area joining up. Where else can an untrained person earn $32,800 year/Gross?

The military offers opportunities to most of the areas you are objecting to the funding for. No they are not allowed to advocate as a specalized vocal group like the "Heart & Stroke Foundation", but the military offers more to the community they serve in than just taking a wage.

Here....smoke this [insert doobie emoticon]

They are the only ones who can change it...they're in the house....they are the 'only' ones with the option to make it right....getting mad won't make them change...it'll make you old faster than you're spose to get old...

Those with consciouses will work for change, those without, won't...

Here...take one for later....[doobie emoticon]

I'd offer you a drink, but i don't indulge....too many drunken arguments..

I gave you that joint, didn't I?....................................

I like golf, and it is good for the economy.

People who don't play are the ones who continue to harp on golf. It provides income for workers and attracts tourist dollars to our economy. It provides green spaces for trees, foxes and other animals. It raises the value of homes and real estate in the area.

Please show me the numbers that are proof to your argument that golf is a money loser for the province, twig. And don't forget those jobs local workers are happy to have. Otherwise, shut up about golf.

never said it was money loser, but let private enterprise invest and build it, gov't can provide the land , but all those millions are better spent on healthcare.
it would seem you have a dr, and are in good health. hope it stays that way.
