Bobby Jindal: The Next Governor of Louisiana

Well, it's official.  Bobby Jindal, an Indian-American who converted from Hinduism to Christianity in his teens, is the next Governor of the State of Louisiana.  He wins outright - with 54% of the vote.  The runner-up had 18%.  Remember this the next time someone tries to claim that all Americans, Southerners, Republicans, etc. are racists.

Que penses tu d'aller manger ta femme pour une fois au lieu de passer tes journées - que dis-je - tes heures et tes minutes sur un blogue à hair le monde entier espèce de vieux cave.

hi Marc~

still trolling about?

i've noticed you've been increasingly vociferous again. feeling confident about your debating skills?

Posted by: shel | 2007-10-22 7:56:45 PM

ok...I will accomodate myself to your language; unlike you in Quebec.

I said:
Why don't YOU go eat your wife for once and stop hating the entire world 18h/day - fuckin' everyday on that blog, grumpy old man.

It was more a sugestion than an insult - if insulted you were.

My answer was of course in margin of the "eat your mom" you serve me each time you're losing a debate...

Hello Shel,

I'm just a poor skilled French frog.
I'm getting on my knees in your presence, your greatness.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-22 8:09:25 PM


no problem. come to Alberta. it's not what you've been told it is. ;)

Posted by: shel | 2007-10-22 8:23:51 PM

Having many friends working @ Fort McMurray.
Not sure I'm the naive one...

i worked up in Ft. Mac for over a year a couple years ago. the money was really good. but holy crap, it sucked. i was homesick, my woman wanted me home more often, and every day was spent either in camp, or at work. lineups for the bathroom; lineups for breakfast and supper; lineups for the bus going to and coming from work. all i saw all day were thousands of guys in hardhats.

you're right, Ft. Mac sucks. it sucked for me and i was only about 700 km away from home and went home every weekend or two. i can imagine how someone from the East must feel.

so i said "screw this" and got a job around home. almost as much money and i get to be around my family and friends. i work with two guys from Que. Reginald and another guy named Marc. good guys. they love to hunt. Marc and i both have filipina girlfriends. lots to talk about. these guys are happy here. they sing old Que. folk songs really loud!! :)

So...where am I wrong with my vues of Alberta...?

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-22 8:52:48 PM

And tell your friends the Habs just won 6-1 against Boston.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-22 8:53:52 PM

my computer sucks so i can't watch your video. i can only speculate you've seen only one "view": Ft. Mac. it's a speck of sand in a breathtaking land of beauty and equality of opportunity. i spend, probably, six weeks in total, backpacking in our mountains, a few weeks in the Fall hunting and birding, crosscountry and backcountry skiing in the winter, and enjoying life in the West. Beautiful place. you should see the world in the winter from the top of a mountain, after skinning up with skis. quiet, still, serene, and not a building or car to be seen. just your track line. then you ski down that mountain in some awsome pow.

we have an incredible ethnic diversity here. i live around Edmonton and regularly eat in excellent Thai, Greek, Indian, and other places. mainly little hole-in-the-wall places (they're the best), but sometimes mainstream as well. great place to live.

there are some problems with the boom though. migrants from other parts of Canada are coming here without doing their homework and studying the markets. there is an almost zero vacancy housing rate. it's very hard to find a place to live here. man you should see how fast they're trying to build houses, apartments, and condos! and of course, the markets dictate prices. supply and demand. people who find places generally get roommates (friends, family, other families) to share rent. when more housing is available, prices will come down, as they always have. and people will be able to afford rent and payments without having to band up.

i don't hear any pantywaists whining about it. we're all doing well here and understand that's the way the markets work. as long as the Feds leave the markets alone and don't pull another NEP like the Trudeau Liberals did, and cause people to lose their homes (i was 15 at the time and remember it well) we should be ok when the boom levels off.

i don't know where you get the idea people with homes can't afford to eat. who told you this?

there is a pollution problem around Ft. Mac. the govt. and corps. are already making progress, and have been doing so for a while. you must understand, extracting oil this way is a new process, with new technology.

but who told you we won't be able to drink the water? this is unfounded rhetoric. Ft. Mac is a speck in northern Alta. check out what the Tories and the corps. are doing these days to address the situation. (not just the envirocreeps' websites. they have their agendas too).

unfounded envirocreep prop. what's your point?

Posted by: shel | 2007-10-22 10:19:34 PM

of course...
Hey, I live in Québec - it's not like I care.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-22 10:30:22 PM

Separatists care about no one but themselves. Not a great selling point for their humanity. All the more reason to be happy to see them leave out country.

Zionists care about no one but themselves. Not a great selling point for their humanity. All the more reason to be happy to see them leave out country.

(Hey, I can play too...)

Obc admits each week that he himself is a separatist. Everybody here know that he dislike about everything in Canada and will probably finish his old days in the US.

In Quebec, you're a separatist if you wish to protect your culture & language and beleive the Feds wont help you with that.

In Alberta, you're a separatist for money concerns.

Who's caring more about the others...I let you judges.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-23 10:40:16 AM

I let you judges too - when you learn to speak Canada's language - English, of course.

"Jewish leader: party winner of Swiss elections is bordering on anti-Semitism

EJP Updated: 22/Oct/2007 17:45

Alfred Donath, presidnet of the Swiss Federation of Jewish communities.

GENEVA (EJP)---The populist and xenophobic right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which was the biggest winner of general elections on Sunday, is bordering on what can be considered as anti-Semitism, Alfred Donath, president of the Swiss Federation of Jewish communities (FSCI), told European Jewish Press on Monday.

“For us Jews, foreigners are playing a very important role in Switzerland,” Donath said. He referred to Torah, the first five books of the Bible, in which one can read: "Remember that you were a foreigner in the land of Egypt."

You mean one of Canada's language, asti de squarehead.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-23 2:36:22 PM


Alfred Donath is a disgrace to Switzerland and to the Jewish community therein.

Meanwhile Jonathan Sacks, Britain's chief rabbi, has just written a book attacking multiculturalism. He says it stifles free speech and threatens democracy itself. Check it out over at Steve Sailer's blog (I'd send you the link but for my sub-Saharan level computer skills ;-).

Posted by: JP | 2007-10-23 4:03:48 PM

Interesting JP, especially this part...

"Sacks said Britain's politics had been poisoned by the rise of identity politics, as minorities and aggrieved groups jockeyed first for rights, then for special treatment.

The process, he said, began with Jews, before being taken up by blacks, women and gays. He said the effect had been "inexorably divisive."

"A culture of victimhood sets group against group, each claiming that its pain, injury, oppression, humiliation is greater than that of others," he said. "

...but where does he mention immigration restriction?

Posted by: DJ | 2007-10-23 4:24:12 PM

Immigration restrictionists like us are, for now, a small, small minority. In an American context I would think that most Jews and African-Americans would eventually come around to our point of view, despite the anti-White Christian bias of their present "leaders" like Abe Foxman and Jesse Jackson.

Posted by: JP | 2007-10-23 4:53:32 PM

immigrants are not the problem.

The fact that our laws dosent reprensent our culture and identity better in our secular society is the nonsense.

With all the holes in our polities, Hérouxville was just a step in the good direction.

Posted by: Marc | 2007-10-23 5:06:31 PM

""leaders" like Abe Foxman and Jesse Jackson"

Self-appointed. No elections. Just spewing Leftoid doctrine.
