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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
