    Except the homophobe Mayor Rob Ford apparently won't get his way, since the Toronto city council stripped most of their drunken druggie mayor's powers away in November. So the rainbow flag will remain flying over Toronto City Hall, to protest Russia's anti-gay policies. icon_biggrin.gif

    These are little more than the sputterings of a dying man.

    Dying politically, and possibly dying physically, as well. He's clearly out of control, and his brother who sits on the city council should do an intervention, rather than being his apologist & enabler. Amazing how everyone else can see the problem, but these tragic characters can never see it for themselves.

    They think they're some dynastic political family in Canada. Both aspired to higher offices. Both are too stupid to realize that Rob has cooked both their gooses.

    You never know with politics. And I read Rob's popularity with Right Wing voters in Toronto is still high (almost as high as he is himself).

    Well, the idiocy of the Right seems to know no borders. Nor their hypocrisy. They want to send everyone else to jail for long terms who use drugs, unless it's one of their own.

    But now I have to go to dinner with my husband, and also with an RJ member! I'll resume this later when we get back.

    I think most United Staters can appreciate Rob Ford. He makes the rest of us feel like maybe we're not as completely fucked, after all!

    I don't like to make negative comments, but I'm not a big fan of this mayor of ours. He's just so...

    Ford did a great job today solidifying his support. He made it look like a Canadian Flag was removed to put up a Rainbow Flag while our athletes are at Olympic opening. The truth that it was the City of Toronto Flag and the big main Canadian Flag was never changed will fall on deaf ears. It plays right to his idiot followers.

    Then he had the fake threats story so he could be poor Rob the Victim again.

    I have no doubt people will vote him back in if the police don't finally get off their asses and charge him.

    I am getting tired of this Rob Ford Drama.... He should have been kicked out of his mayoral position when he admitted to smoking crack. Then he appeared drunk on many youtube videos saying racial slurs...and he's still our mayor. He gets caught J-Walking in BC and gets ticketed and claims to be a victim (as he was singled out)... Today, there were Police officers at city hall because he (and his family) were threatened... A victim again!... He clearly shows his lack of support for the LGBT community too... but apparently he has a lot of gay friends! Whatever!

    Worse off, his name is everywhere. The media does not stop focusing on him. All other news gets thrown to the back burner and [WARNING OVERDRAMATIC] Rob Ford has 9 Articles on what he ate for breakfast, what time he took a shit and the fact that he did not wash his hands after using the washroom. [/RANT]

    I still don't see anything positive he's done for our city.

    He's made our city a joke....

    YourName2000 saidAs his ship sinks, Ford has little to do but rearrange his own deck chairs. These are little more than the sputterings of a dying man. He only shines a light on his own impotence by railing against that which he's powerless to change himself and clearly unable to rally others to change for him.

    His only future is if there's a Dune remake. icon_confused.gif

    What scares me is that lots of people see him as a hero. Tons of comments and labels for him like, "refreshing", "Rob for president" etc. Being a Canadian, I am worried cause the media shows him as a celebrity. And the brain dead people seem to buy it.

    OK, back from dinner. Had a lovely time with my husband and an RJer. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well, I think this Rob Ford problem will solve itself, as it often does with substance abusers, if tragically. He's out of control, and his brother, instead of intervening, is enabling him.

    This whole issue may therefore soon become a moot point, at least as far as the office of Toronto Mayor and the city's voters are concerned.

    What gets me is that he panders to the very people he hates. And yet they buy the shit he's selling hook, line and sinker.

    Ford Nation believes he's "one of them" and over look the fact that he and his brother are spoiled rich kids, who are thugs.

    I'm from Toronto originally and I'm convinced he's toast. Yes, he has supporters but mainstream voters in Toronto are silently stewing. I predict he will lose the election decisively.

    It's wrong, btw, to paint his supporters as just Right Wing conservative flakes. My sister and mother strongly support him because they think he's just a misunderstood/picked on/regular guy fighting the "Elites" (icon_rolleyes.gif ) and both usually vote NDP (Canada's left wing political party).

    Is Ford a Conservative? Absolutely. Did most Conservatives choose him? Undoubtedly. However, he won the 3-way race with 47% of the vote. A lot more people than just Tea Party- types voted for him.

    Yes, but you see, crazy Leftists who think they are God's gift to humanity can't think that.

    In their world, only evil, stupid conservatives can make bad decisions.

    Only they, the Enlightened Ones, have the minds to know what is best for everyone on the planet.

    So they sit there and type away with the utmost arrogance and superiority telling everyone else who doesn't believe them or disagrees with them that they are stupid or don't know what they're talking about.

    Leftism operates on the assumption that everything that it cooks up is the answer to the world's problems and that everything otherwise is stupid and should not be listened to.

    For the side of politics that raves about how lovely and tolerant it is, it is the most intolerant of ideologies and political leanings.

    It's from "Keeping Up Appearances"...same show I get these pics from. Of course the difference is that Onslow is the spitting image of SB, lol.

    And a mark of SB's extreme jealousy, that I get to meet RJers in person all the time. As at dinner like last night, where I suppose I could have worn a dowdy hat, dress & gloves if I chose (I didn't), or meeting for golf, when I wear men's golf attire and only 1 leather glove.
