5 Terror Attacks in Saskatoon

   I like to find humour in all situations that might pop up, but not this. As I watched little children be evacuated from a Saskatoon School the other day because of“suspicious powder”, my heart sank. There have 5 such attacks on various institutions over the span of a week, including a Hospital Cancer Clinic. There is some sick piece of ****, you fill in the word there, that thinks pulling fake terror attacks is funny.

 

Here’s the school being evacuated

 

   The Saskatoon Police have said on a tv report, that if the person is caught, he/she would be charged with “Mischief.” I contacted Saskatoon Police and they never returned my call. If you were to leave a bag of suspicious powder or a pipe with wires coming out of it, in the bathroom on an airplane, I’m pretty sure you’d would be charge with an act of terror and treated like a terrorist. Sure one is Municipal and the other is Federal. Does this say that the municipal law has to catch up to the Federal law in cases of terrorism? The Criminal Code is the Criminal Code. For clarification I contacted the Saskatchewan Government Justice Dept. Yup, you guessed it, no comment there either. When it comes to terror we all should be on the same page and that’s what Canada’s Criminal Code does…

 

“The definition of “terrorist activity” in section 83.01 of the Criminal Code has two components. The first component incorporates a series of offences enacted to implement international legal instruments against terrorism. The second, more general, stand-alone component, states that a “terrorist activity” is an act or omission undertaken “in whole or in part for a political, religious, or ideological purpose, objective or cause” that is intended to intimidate the public or compel a person, government or organization to do or refrain from doing any act, if the act or omission intentionally causes a specified serious harm. Specified harms include causing death or serious bodily harm, endangering life, causing a serious risk to health or safety, causing substantial property damage where it would also cause one of the above listed harms and, in certain circumstances, causing serious interference or disruption of an essential service, facility or system, whether public or private. No where does it mention “Mischief.”

 

The penalty is up to life in prison for terrorist activity. If and when the police catch the person or persons doing this, adult…prision! If it’s a kid, they should be charged with a terror offence. Maybe put on the No Fly list forever and be fined the cost of everything incurred. That would include each location staff salaries for the day, cost of police, fire, ambulance. If they are to young to pay, then their parents should pay.

 

Here’s the emergency response

 

   I think we’ve gone way passed yelling fire in a crowded theatre. Pulling the odd fire alarm, like some of us might have done in school, is “Mischief”, but sending possibly deadly powder is a whole different ball game. They caused parents, little children, hospital staff and patients to be terrorized. Businesses, Schools and a Hospital to be disrupted. They also took emergency services away from people that might have really needed them. As it turned out every package was harmless.

 

   My hat is off to the way the fire and police depts handled every situation. Very professional. So I leave it to you, in todays World, is sending a bag of powder to an institution a terror attack (fake or not) or mischief? To the cowardly piece of crap that sent the packages, be afraid very afraid, because you will be found and “Hey, Get Off My Lawn”!

Top 15 Signs of Age and Aging

funny-aarp-cartoon-poster

 

Hey, Baby Boomer so you’re getting older and you don’t know what to expect. Try these on for size.

 

You know you’re getting old….when you can remember the day when you could pronounce all the NHL’s players names, Mahovlich was the hardest. (Canada)

 

When someone offers you a “joint” now you automatically think, ‘would that be a knee or hip?’

 

You order the super TV pack, just because it has the Weather Channel.

 

Back in the day, we remember yelling “Hey, Culligan Man”. Today we know why. He’s the only one that’ll come running when you slip in the tub.

 

Becoming a senior is great, because if you happen to end up in prison, you won’t be getting all those romantic looks from cellblock D.

 

Becoming a senior means you understand you really won’t be getting romantic looks from anyone.

 

Getting older means some bodily functions are like swallowing scrabble tiles. You know one good sneeze, could spell disaster.

 

When you and your buddies wanted to go to the Drive-In. The ones with no money always got in….in the trunk.
You can remember when a “Race Issue” was arguing about who ran the fastest.

 

We finally understand why babies are so cantankerous … plastic and paper underwear.

 

The kids today love the movie”Frozen.” We lived it, always playing hockey on an outdoor rink no matter the temperature. (Canada and Alaska)

 

You end up having to wear Bi-Focals or the new term, Progressive Lenses. This is good guys, everything is so much larger when you look through the bottom half of the glasses. Just make your wife wear them to bed.

 

You remember how our sense of humour was formed around Grade One. OH, how our parents laughed, when you asked for a ride to school. “What are ya kid, some kind of comedian?”

 

Remembering that when you had a job, phoning in fake sick on the weekend was not an option. Your parents made you go to work. Hey, they’d even give you a ride. A ride to school NO WAY but ride to work…Oh, Hell Ya!

 

To the old and young never be afraid to speak out and up. The most important saying you need to know that can apply to so may people and so much in your life, is “Hey, Get Off My Lawn!”

 

You think that the Led Zeppelin cover band performing at the old folks home, should have sang “Stairlift to Heaven.”
   So to the seniors that are feeling shelved, it’s time to get up read a paper, watch the news, learn something new on the computer and most important of all, stay engaged with your surroundings with a sense of humour. Don’t let yesterday use up to much of today.
   To all the kids and grandkids, call you’re parents and tell them you’re thinking of them and you love them, while you still have the chance. Remember you always learn lessons from their past, which gives you the future, where you can apply them.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you laughed give it a “like” and pass it on. If you didn’t “Hey Get Off My Lawn”

McDonalds Now Cooks Children

Remember the good old days when a Happy Meal toy would only cause your child to choke and gag a bit? McDonalds are recalling 33 million Chinese made,
“Step-It” fitness trackers that were the toy in the “Happy Meal”. The reason is, they tend to burn and or give heat related rashes to the children that wear them.

q-100

   McDonalds was trying to show a corporate image that they care about obesity in children, by getting kids up and moving. Intentions were good with that. Really though, a child will become obese if they are bed ridden in the burn ward. On the other hand, they might lose weight by not eating as much only using their one good hand because the other is wrapped in bandages.

   

This is just another example of corporate greed. Let’s get a really cheap product made in China and give it away. My guess is that Corporations like McDonalds haven’t learned from recalls of toys like Barbie and Polly Pocket, pet foods, milk powder, tires, paint and now Step-It fitness trackers. All have caused death or serious injury. If you want to stay a away from a swirling PR cesspool nightmare, give your head a shake, Chinese products SUCK!

   

It’s time Corporations like McDonalds and many others, show the customer, not the shareholder, that they care about them. To McDonalds, “Hey, Get Off My Lawn.” Cook burgers, NOT CHILDREN.
