Thanks Canada….Again!

You may recall that Canadian Embassy personnel protected and then spirited away American Diplomatic Mission personnel who escaped the American Embassy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran. I recall wearing a ‘Thanks Canada’ button after our people were returned safely, I still have that button.

Canada has severed diplomatic ties with Iran. The lawlessness of the regime has become too much for Canada. They cite the attack on the British Embassy, assistance to the Assad regime in Syria, the nuclear program, threats directed at Israel, racist anti Semitic rhetoric, support for terrorism and an abysmal human rights record.

But wait, that’s not all. Foreign Minister John Baird says; “Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today, they have shown a blatant disregard for the Vienna Conventions.” Canada has warned off Canadian citizens from traveling to Iran.

The announcement was made from Russia ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit. Why is that important, because the announcement came after a meeting with Russian diplomatic officials where the Canadian position was made clear in “no uncertain terms” according to Minister Baird. Way to draw a red line!

Thanks Canada!! ….. Again!!

    It sounds like Canada is exhibiting more common sense with it’s foreign policy than they do with their politicially correct social agenda.

    Let us hope that Mr.Harper stays at the helm and the Parti Quebecois never gains control.

  • I’ve spent a lot of time in Canada. Parti Quebecois has become a less powerful party in Quebec and of no importance in the rest of the country. Canada has mitigated their social programs and we would all be exceptionally happy if our overall economic conditions matched Canada. Mr. Harper has done an exceptional job, and has found points of common cause with his opposition.

    “Parti Québécois wins Quebec election 2012”

    MONTREAL — “The Parti Quebecois is celebrating a return to power after nine years in opposition but its parade has been dampened by a weaker-than-desired result that could severely limit its ability to pursue its independence agenda.”

    “The party has never governed with a minority in its history and, therefore, has never faced the challenge of tabling an inaugural speech — or any other confidence measures — with the support of other parties that oppose its agenda.”

    Just because Nate, Landreaux, you, and I go off topic; you claim I can not go off topic.

    Here you go trying to START A FIGHT going OFF TOPIC. I HAVE REASONS for liking Newt. He and CONTRACT WITH AMERICA.You use Ryan, as your reason and NOTHING THAT MITT DID, who could be JUST A MAID in oval office.

    YOU are being “tedious” as Landreaux SAYS. GO scare another who dares to write on this site. You can only be the big fish if you are only fish in pond.

    “LORD OF ALL THINGS REPUBLICAN” ? Have you been lobotomised ? Am TEA. BUT do prove…

  • Bill Hedges

    Since you want to hear me SAY something negative about Bush I will. Bush vetoed a bill to finance the wars as he promised he would. He said he would do if too much PORK was attached.

    Bush should of vetoed MORE.

    Don’t expect ME to hold your hand and help you with your comments. You do not have $$$ retainer with me for my assistance…

    Capitalism Under Attack? D.D.Mao Jan 31st, 2012 at 1:11 am

    Wrote ““Billy Flynn” Hedges”.

    You name called ALOT for long time and I AM gradually learning to follow in YOUR FOOTSTEPS. Now you call me “LORD OF ALL THINGS REPUBLICAN”. In same vain as your vulgar street slang I call you ASSHOLE…

  • Bill Hedges

    You do understand going off topic and giving link making fun of Newt will give you a bad hair week.

    THAT should be clear to you. IS a no brainier…

  • Bill Hedges

    Before you go into my causing JD to leave again, check out “NO Means NO!” Discover his stealing of words of another that I uncovered…

  • Bill Hedges


    Found you did THE SAME THING as JD with Heritage female author.

    Two peas in the pod…

  • Bill Hedges

    Are you going to post another link with photo of Newt making fun of him ??? You are the one who complains about GOING OFF TOPIC and there you go doing JUST THAT.

    BESIDES being a plagiarist you are a _hyp·o·crite _ AS WELL . I DON’T JUST SAY THOSE TWO THING I prove.

    Newt balanced budget, reduced taxes, and reduced government size. Mitt helped get similar health plan as obuma in Ma. AND ………. ???. You hang you vote on Ryan who could be maid in oval office. You disliked Newt as well as Mitt. TOO bad our comments are immortalized on this site and I can search for remarks from YOUR past. They come back to haunt you showing you for the person you ARE !!!

    You irritate me like a fly buzzing my head. I’m like a 200 lb. tumor upon your head. Dig up all the photos making fun of Newt you can. I’m going NO WHERE & you will need them.

    I am your FACT CHECK. I find boat loads…

  • Jenny

    Did the two of you forget about Canada, the topic of the comments? Go take your fight elsewhere. Canada wants peace.

  • Bill Hedges


    Give me the links of 2 political sites like this where comments stay on topic of article.

    I never have seen one. Would like to know…

  • D.D.Mao


    You are absolutely right……my apologies !

  • Thank you Jenny!!!

  • Bill Hedges

    I asked Jenny and will ask you. Yes you & I both go off topic.All who write here often do…

    What political site like this has comments that only discuss topic of article. This site and US News are only two I go to. Neither stick only to topic of article. I want link to 1-2 of this mystical web sites. I did look at Hannity site momentarily. It could be but not sure.

    Show me 2 comments with at least 20 comments where comments all stayed on topic of article. I DOUBT it exist. Last time owner of site wrote on site he went off topic. Included Landreaux, you, and me. I find it ____ hypocritical _____ to condemn me for going off topic when every regular with owner doing same. That means complainer tooooooooo.

  • Bill Hedges

    Give me right site that stays on topic that has a working “Report Comment” & I just might go there.

    US News changed way they handled comments and all my friends and many others left that site…

  • Bill Hedges


    You were part of the problem NOT CURE. You should not be saying “thank you” to Jenny but get on your hands and knees begging for forgiveness.

    I reported comments and sent comments to you to NO avail. ___ YOUR not owner ___ you reply. Neither am I BUT I TRIED. You sat their and said “tedious”. I was not asking you to take SIDES. Just DO THE RIGHT THING. SPEAK.. SPEAK UP. Just two little comments which I have quoted OFTEN.

    You DID NOT want to get >>> INVOLVED >>>. THEN DONT. DO. Grow a backbone. Now you look like a …..

  • Landreaux

    OK Bill, I’ll speak up. I value civil discourse. Don’t care for name calling, make it a point to avoid it in my posts. The vitriol between you and DD Mao has gotten exceptionally tedious and unproductive. I don’t even read it anymore when it’s clear where it’s heading. I don’t even care who started it, don’t care about whatever trail of evidence can be provided. And, I don’t care to be the referree. I thanked Jenny as another voice that cares not for the manner of discourse that has evolved here. It’s not a case of backbone, it’s a case of being able to engage in intelectually valid arguments absent hard feelings and disrespect. I don’t want to get involved in the middle of these circular arguments and you can consider this my last foray into that little malstrom.

  • Bill Hedges

    That’s your right.

    Now GO vote for Alvin Michael Greene (D_SC).

    I’ll end my comment here. Have more respect for DD Mao than you. He’s a proven idiot. I’ve documented that in countless comments. I said what I had to say in previous comment.

    Be proud of yourself ?!?!? Hope our politicians behave like you. Problem solved…
