"Serious Looting" Underway in Ottawa, Canada
Fox News ^ | August 14, 2003

Posted on 08/14/2003 8:26:58 PM PDT by Shermy

Subscript only at Fox.

I usually don't post such, but this one was to good to pass up, IMO. Plus Chretien thrice-changed explanation for the blackout.

Serious Looting"

Well, at least it wasn't the "Goofy, Slap-stick Looting" I've heard so much about...

We should have sent more troops. This is all Bush's fault.

There's no reason to gloat about this. NBC is reporting on several looting incidents in New York City.

Make no mistake, folks. Any @sshole who elects Hillary Clinton to the U.S. Senate won't think twice about breaking into your electronics store.

There haven't been any reports of looting in Michigan, have there?

I suspect there won't be much there, thanks to the new CCW law.

No...no...it's not the sales tax (Washington lingo) it's the G.S.T. tax that's on every damn thing there. When we visit we always get a portion of it back as non-residents when we cross the border (poor sucker Canadians, taxing the hell out of themselves only). My wife named the G.S.T. the Great Stupid Tax -- and even said that to the Canadian clerk as she was giving us our rebate one time. Lady about busted her gut laughing so hard.

Yeah, but no Noo Yawkeh ever indulged him- or herself in pretensions of moral superiority.

And no, Hillary doesn't count because she's not a Noo Yawkeh.

Atheists Socialists now have to lie in the beds theyve made along with their sodomites and terrorists theyve given sancturary to..
To disarm their people...so that in moments like these they are helpless against thieves murderers rapists and thugs is dispicable
Hopefully when this is over they might see the error of their ways and end their idiotic ban on self defense...
Hopefully we will as well....end the idiot AW ban...
Instead this will probably only give wings to more power to Homie land security and not the personal liberty to defend ones own loved ones and posessions

LOL, thats exactly what I was thinking. Funny that we knuckle dragging, open mouth-breathing neandertals aren't in predatory mode against our fellow citizens like they are in "O Canada".

I hope Quebec stays dark....oh wait, it has always been in the dark.

Canadian Defense spokesman on now. Says hard to pinpoint the black out source, and there are "snowball effects" to consider. Might take a few days to solve.

Sounds reasonable. So why is Chretien in such a tizzy? Perhaps his family connections to Hydro Quebec and other energy companies part of the problem, and he's fronting for them? Chretien's energy connections make the Bush family's look like small potatoes.
