Small Advice for budding politicians out there.

Thinking of the USA election, and trying to remember about what makes a great candidate just great. A few of these people come to mind. Here is a list of my greatest Canadian politicians of all time:

1. Jean Chretien- Debt reduction and boom time.

2. MacKenzie King- WW 2 - social program groundwork.

3.  Lester B Pearson- Peacekeeping forces.

4. John A MacDonald - Confederation

5. Wilfred Laurier- Expanding Confederation. English French Partnership in governance.

My top 5 USA Presidents:

1. Franklin D Roosevelt. - Great depression and escape from it, WW 2.

2. Ronald Reagan - Low taxes, defeated communism?

3. George Washington - The USA Union.

4. John F Kennedy- Cuban Missile Crisis, civil rights.

5. Bill Clinton- Pay down debt and economic upturn.

These are my top 5 rankings in each country. The reason being, Jean Chretien being the top Canadian leader is due to the fact of his tough job he had to turn the country out of its economic turmoil. George Soros at the time, compared Canada to Mexico where at the time, Mexico had a financial crisis at hand.

Roosevelt, well, there is no explanation required to understand that his policies during the toughest depression, taking his country through WW 2, was definitely a time for the need of a great leader.

The rest on the list, have done allot for the benefit and expansion of their very own, great societies. Of course, these lists are different in the views of most people. And I do not agree with some of their policies, but they had solid strength in the face of adversities.

Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan gave incredible speeches. Jean Chretien had great speeches as well, and so did John A MacDonald.

Anyone in an election should know how to divide up their news tidbits. Know or try to catch their opponent in a faux pas. You cannot say you are going to raise taxes, unless there is a very good reason to do so. Do not give too much out at the first 30 days of a campaign. What will you have, in the last week, of campaigning. Old news.

Till next time..

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"
