8:56 P.M. Appall-I-Tics vs Melting Pot vs Press … Canada loses !!! …

AMPDouble

I realize that these two categories can often intertwine … So when that’s the case … It calls for a double header !!! … I’ll create a ‘ Media ‘ category post haste …

I find myself posting on an issue far too often these days and it’s pissing me of that it’s been allowed to last this long and cost the people of Canada more and more each day !!! … This should already be established ! … If not … It should be dealt with in about 15 minutes with elected officials and be done with it !!! … For much of our history it has just been ‘ common sense ‘ that you would stand before a ‘ swearing in ‘ ceremony … Proud to join a country officially … ESPECIALLY when YOU chose to come here !!! … As I stated , the politicians could deal with it in one BRIEF sitting … BUT NO !!! … This will drag on and consume resources … WHY  ?! …

Well … I know why … I just didn’t want to have to place the ‘ A Good Start ‘ header up there as well … Too crowded !!! …

On the six o’clock news was a clip about the recent remarks an MP from the governing party of Canada had made after being ‘ goaded ‘ by the radio station host … Quite frankly … I think he represented his constituents’ point of view in the matter … However … A politician should KNOW that he has to word his views carefully … ( Even though I’m sure MANY , MANY Canadians think and say the same … Or use even harsher ‘ blunt ‘ language  … ) Especially when in the shark tank controlled by the ‘ Media ‘ …

The following is an article from the Ottawa Citizen … Diving in with the rest of the media frenzy to stir things up …

A Conservative MP from Ontario was forced to backpedal Tuesday after telling a local radio station that if anyone doesn’t want to show their face during a citizenship oath ceremony , the person should ‘ stay the hell where you came from ‘ …

The Prime Minister’s Office also distanced itself from the comments by Bruce Grey-Owen Sound MP Larry Miller , in the latest political storm over the Muslim veil known as the niqab …Larry Miller MP

On Monday , Miller told a local radio station … ‘ Frankly , if you’re not willing to show your face in a ceremony that you’re joining the best country in the world, then frankly … if you don’t like that , or don’t want to do that , stay the hell where you came from …

‘ I’m so sick and tired of people wanting to come here because they know it’s a good country and then they want to change things before they even really officially become a Canadian ‘ …

Miller issued an apology Tuesday … ‘ Yesterday I made comments on a radio show that I recognize were inappropriate ‘  he said in a written statement ‘ I stand by my view that anyone being sworn in as a new citizen of our country must uncover their face … However , I apologize for and retract my comments that went beyond this …

Now Rob here has some ‘ media savvy ‘ …

Rob Nichol , director of communications for the PMO , said in an e-mail … ‘ The member in question made inappropriate comments that went beyond our clear position and he has apologized for that ‘ …

Nichol added … ‘ We believe most Canadians , including new Canadians , would find it offensive that someone would cover their face at the very moment they want to join the Canadian family ‘ …

THAT ‘S how you make your point Mr. Miller …
