senator patrick

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, hand to face, and First Lady Anne Holton, right, sit with other parents in the Senate at the Patrick Henry Building in Richmond, VA Saturday, March 11, 2006. They were there for the “Page Resolution” honoring Senate pages, including their son, Woody.

At least one U.S. Senator is taking action against FIFA’s pay gap 

Sen. Leahy (D-Vt.) put forth a formal resolution on the Senate floor Monday demanding FIFA address their gender pay gap. He countered FIFA’s previous defense of this gap — that payment is determined based on revenue disparities — by noting that, as previously reported, the women’s World Cup title game drew a record-breaking 25.4 million viewers. Of course, there’s a big irony to all of this.

Senator Mike Duffy (Senate Scandal, has 31 criminal charges including bribery, fraud, breach of trust)

Senator Patrick Brazeau (Senate scandal, arrested for domestic violence, has been charged for Assault, cocaine possession, uttering threats, breaking bail conditions)

Senator Pamella Wallin (Senate scandal, RCMP allege she committed breach of trust and fraud)

Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu (being investigated by the RCMP as part of the Senate Audit, resigned)

Senator Don Meredith (Kicked out of Conservative caucus after it was revealed that he had an innapropriate sexual relationship with a 16 year old girl)

The list just keeps getting longer and longer. All of these people were appointed by Stephen Harper.

Eventually we have to point the finger at the PM himself. This shows very poor judgement.

In 2012, Justin Trudeau, then a young member of the Canadian Parliament, stepped into a boxing ring at a charity event in Ottawa. His opponent, a heavily tattooed and much beefier senator named Patrick Brazeau, was favored to win by 3-to-1 odds.

Trudeau, wearing red boxing shorts and sporting a large tattoo of the Earth encircled by a raven on his left shoulder, took as many hits from the announcer as he did from his opponent. Conservative broadcaster Ezra Levant mocked Trudeau as “the Shiny Pony,” said his daughter could skip rope better and predicted the fight would last one round.

But the Shiny Pony surprised everyone: Trudeau won in the third round.

That boxing match could very well have been a preview of Canada’s elections last October. Trudeau and his Liberal Party lagged in third place at the start of the short campaign. But once again, his opponents underestimated him. Trudeau won a decisive victory against Conservative incumbent Stephen Harper.

Blackhawks fans need to chill

I love how Blackhawk fans act as if their team was in serious jeopardy. They have 99 points and the closest team that was trailing them has 85 points. These so called ‘Blackhawk fans’ have been bitching since Kane got injured and acting as if they weren’t going to make it. Their team is one of the best in the entire league and they’re acting like it’s life or death if they don’t clinch before other teams. It’s amazing how self-centred their 'fans’ are. I don’t think any of them have realized how hard other teams are fighting in the playoff race; or even that other teams have it a lot worse. If you’re a Blackhawks fan, chill the fuck out.
