Just stand your ground. Never give in to them. No freakin' cookies or crackers to shut them up and make them fat, just temporarily masking the problem. Be firm. When they see they don't get rewarded for screaming or hanging from you, they will eventually stop. This should start very early.
This is my third attempt to comment on this. Why does a bitcher get to say "Cape Breton Arseholes", I comment twice, and the comment doesn't get posted? Well, here goes again: Who/what area of NS (and research has shown this) gets more "entitlements" per capita from the federal government? Looks like the stereotyper here thinks Cape Breton. But guess who, Einstein? Yup. HRM. Think that over the next time you're at a big box store and assume there is truth in some generational, ingrained stereotype espoused in centre-periphery 'diffusion' BS.
It's "tow", not "toe". And no price can be put on even one life saved.
A former cabinet minister, charged with and convicted of filing false expense claims, has been appointed to the Executive Council and given the priviledge of having "honourable" placed before his name. The Lieutenant Governor makes such appointments on the ADVICE and direction of the premier---Mr. DEXTER!--all while the present spending scandal is unravelling! Yet the media, who aggressively worked to oust the last premier (with the low method of throwing out constant occupational and cultural slights), has essentially let this remain under the radar while the present premier vacations and hopes that this issue will go away. People like Tim Bousquet and Stephen Kimber (a self-proclaimed NDP supporter), and seemingly the rest of NS "journalists" are being too easy on Dexter and this present shakey government. All parties are at fault and yes, spending and P3 arrangements of the now-distant past are not, in hindsight, something to be proud of. However, the present is what now counts. Do your job and grill Dexter like you would have MacDonald! The Dexter government has to answer to this NOW. It comes as absolute no surprise to me that Tim B. is trying to take the heat off him by looking to the past to divert attention from the NDP. Not until the eleventh paragraph of a fourteen paragraph piece was Dexter mentioned. 'Nuff said. BTW before anyone jumps on me, I'm not a freakin' Tory either!
Oh the irony! Tim B. and Mr. Kimber--two great NDP PR stalwarts--lamenting that journalists have gone the PR route! Are they jealous that Jennifer Stewart gets paid more for doing the same job (read: Dexter PR) that they have been doing since their campaign to get Rodney MacDonald and the last government ousted (and long before that mind you)? Hilarious!
Nice borderline slander, Fouge. The "boss" did not cover anything up; in fact Fage's resignation ensued, as is to be expected. Kimber was very good to Dexter in this article. I guess that's because Kimber is a self-professed member of the NDP party. Compare this article to his twisted negative one on MacDonald a couple of years back. Biased reporting; a cog in the media wheel that has worked to bring down MacDonald since he won the leadership as an underdog against the Halifax "South end" political and professional "establishment". Ironic how a musician like you, Fouge, is speaking out against the only candidate for premier that has gone through similar challenges as a musician that you probably face...
The cartoons are tasteless, and personally and culturally demeaning. This poll, before the election, is an obvious dirty ultra-left final attempt to make sure that MacDonald and the PCs lose. What ever happened to balanced journalism? If MacDonald loses, the media deserve as much credit/blame as any part of that government's record. I am not a conservative either...I'm just grossed out/disgusted by some of the reporting, the latest editorial by Kimber and 'Reality Bites' by Bousquet. And now this blatant poll. Continuous low blows by The Coast's so-called journalists.
