Apparently Rob Ford, the Mayor of Toronto, Smokes Crack - Page 16

Apparently, Tyson didn't know two things. The one thing you can't do on Canadian television is endorse a Conservative politician.

The other thing is that there is no death penalty in Canada.

Third thing: sometimes people ask funny questions when sex offenders endorse politicians.

There's always Doug though and something tells me he has even more skeletons.

Ain't that the truth.

Saw Rob Ford on both my local news and the national evening news tonight. That's when I realized Rob Ford has received about 1000x the US media attention that Kwarme Kirkpatrick. As no one has heard of Kwarme, due to the media black out, he's the Democratic mayor of Detroit that is going to spend 20 years or more in jail due to the over dozen fraud and RICO convictions he earned while mayor of Detroit.

Goes to show there's no news like conservative politician news.

Never heard of that fool. What he did does not surprise me, but the lack of coverage is really disappointing. Cannot believe I expected a bit more out of the media.

Why no coverage? Does the media think that because he is black no one will give a shit? Or are they scared they might be considered racist for pointing out a brotha is corrupt? Do they not want people to know how some politicians are really fucking over the public?

If Kwarme had (R) after his name it would have been a media lynch mob.

To be fair, some of us non-Michiganers have heard of Kwame.

In any case, stories about sitting politicians committing fraud are boring. Even the Rob Ford stories about conflict of interest don't sufficiently bait the clicks.

Yeah...I've heard about the Kwame stuff...

And lets be honest. "Politician is corrupt" is a lot less exciting than "Politician smokes crack"

Kwarme was more than just a little corrupt. I mean, whores in the Mayor's mansion? One of the whores getting executed after his wife physically assaults her and investigators claiming it was a DPD cop? Cops getting fired for investigating happenings at the mansion. The whole perjury thing when his extensive sexting with another mistress was found out? Assaulting a cop, tax evasion, nepotism...the list is nearly endless.

Then there's the actual corruption which was massive and of a scope and severity one rarely sees. I mean, it was epic. Nah, it deserved way more coverage than what Ford's getting.

Well, Rob is a dead man walking. He has an aggressive and rare form of cancer, that sounds like it's metastasized, and he lives in Canada. frown.gif

All Canadians are dead people walking.

I bet dollars to Krugerrands he comes to the US for treatment.

If he has the money why wouldn't you? The Canadian system is top tier for the majority of the western world but one can always do better if money isn't the issue.
