Random disconnected things

As I wandered through the empty tents set up everywhere, I imagined myself with a higher calling... a fight against tyranny and oppression by large corporations. Then I came to my senses and realized I was in Cabela's in Grand Forks.

Disconnect (sort of)

"Nobody told me polyester tents burned very fast." I guess they don't get the Sun or the FreeP at Occupy Memorial Park to learn from their comrades in Calgary Nov 16.

Disconnect (sort of)

Where do you set up cameras in a tent city to satisfy your perverted mind? http://www.winnipegsun.com/2011/11/24/occupierpeeping-tom-free-on-bail

Overheard said by a building inspector, "I don't have to tell you what section of the building code you're in violation of. If you want to argue the point, you have to prove me wrong." This will soon be entered into the dictionary as an entry to help define the word "arrogance".

Disconnect

Is anyone else tired of the childish and just plain ignorant comments in the Winnipeg Sun comments section at almost every story? There appears to be a regular group of clowns who can't seem to construct a sentence.

Disconnect

The Police Chief could have done a better job fighting violent crime downtown except that he had to quell a biker war. Next excuse, he had to send out the "boys" to enforce traffic.

Disconnect

Andrew Swan asks for an independent review and recommendations to help curb the habitual release of criminals. He makes up his own "fix" by promising to hire 20 more overpaid, under worked government employees, JUST what will fix the problem... MORE people involved. Hey buddy... CUT 20 people instead.

Disconnect

A new 511 service and real time highway condition updates. Now we can have road condition maps JUST like North Dakota/Minnesota. Welcome to the new millennium Manitoba Highways.

Disconnect

"We want to be paid overtime to make up for the time we didn't work because we were striking". Really? How about a reality check? Does any one else find that these "well trained minds" are kinda stupid?

Disconnect

Water meter appointments missed by a citizen will result in a "fine". No word on them showing up late and the rebate you'd be receiving. After all... they're really busy. Last appointment I had for "the morning" wound up being 3:30. I call that a whole day.

Disconnect

Odell Willis hasn't learned that "hoe" and "hole" are different things.

Disconnect

Mr. Christian had a great blog entry giving us the history of the Thelmo Mansions on Burnell. These little suites were SO badly set up as far as today's expectations are. There were "urban legends" that it was originally a hotel, clearly disproved by his blog report. http://westenddumplings.blogspot.com/2011/11/west-end-history-thelmo-mansions-519.html  While it is currently undergoing "renovations", the previous projects run by the same group are of a questionable quality.

Disconnect

What do you do when you have one of these rolling garbage cans disappear from your property? YOU pay for a new one of course! Thanks Water and Waste!

Disconnect (sort of)

How is it that "Recycling Day" (Thanks for renaming it Don Woodstock), it the dirtiest day of the week in the back lane... crap flying everywhere. Thanks Water and Waste!

Disconnect

Hey! Jets!  Good game!

Disconnect

GO BOMBERS GO!
