Another one of my passions in life, Politics!

I know many people, abhor politics. They have many of a reason to do so too. Usually, elected officials do not deliver on their promises. Some break promises in a vagrant way. The electors boot them out, if they do a terrible job at the helm. Thus, goes the election cycle.

Someone promises something better, all the time. Lower taxes, better schools, good roads, and maybe even that mega project in an area that needs one. If you say the right things, you can get elected.

People are always scared, of saying the wrong things. Raise your taxes, raise corporate taxes, no new construction, we are in hard times.. No one wants to hear that. Could someone get elected on such a platform?

Definitely, throughout the world, it seems there is a race to the bottom. I think in some areas of the world, we reached it. A race to the bottom in taxes, and changes in labor standards around the world, as we see most manufacturing go to lower wage areas. It has been said, it is only the price of oil (transportation costs), that could bring these jobs back. Just maybe..

With raising debt levels in developed countries of the world, something, unpopular must be done. I just hope they do not cut on those who are pensioners, or people who truly need support.

I would have liked to run for politics myself. There is a liberal leadership here, in New Brunswick. It is just that, it takes allot of money and dedication. Unfortunately, my book did not create enough money for me to run. I would have to stop writing. I would have to move to another area of the province. Take on the big issues, try to create, jobs.

Jobs are the number one, issue, anywhere, anytime. And, with jobs, comes everything else... Everything else, you have heard it from me... So, when you see an elected official, do not ask if he is going to pave your roads, give you a chunk off of your tuition at university, or hire more nurses. Ask him, to help to attract or lure more jobs into the area... Jobs, create taxes, and then create more revenue so the government can do everything else... A politician who can, create jobs from a magic wand, could be king forever... Have a great day,  till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
