Ontario versus Alberta could easily be California versus Texas!



Ontario, Canada

Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Premier’s dog, then bites the Premier.

The Premier starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi”
and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing
what is natural.

He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and
bills the province $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

The Premier goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for
diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish and Game
conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of
dangerous animals.

The Premier spends $50,000 in provincial funds implementing a
“coyote awareness program” for residents of the area.

The provincial legislature spends $2 million to study how to better
treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the

The Premier’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack.

The province spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with
additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit
against the province.


Alberta, Canada

Premier Alison Redford is jogging with her dog along a nature trail.

A coyote jumps out and attacks the dog The Premier’s security agent shoots the coyote and keeps.

The Premier has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge, and the crows eat the dead coyote.

And that, my friends, is why Ontario is broke and Alberta is not!

The above could be California versus Texas (but probably not for long).

I had dinner with a Texas senator and one of his former assistants. When I reported how California has introduced legislation that would require ALL pet owners to spay or neuter ALL their pets, and what I though was obvious; that after 7 to 14 years there would be no pets in California (due to natural attrition or, as I like to say, “death from old age”).
To my amazement, the former assistant said, “Yes, we are trying to do that here in Texas, but there will still be breeders, but they are horrible (cruel).” I thought , “oh my God”…these are the people who make the laws we have to follow!
I was surprised by the position, but this was not my first rodeo, and I have researched this myth of “breeder cruelty” before. Like wives who murder their husbands, cruelty does occur but it is rare and infrequent (otherwise they would be soon out of business).
I tried to mount an argument about private property being the cornerstone of liberty and our Founding Fathers, a la John Locke, who set up our entire government based on this principle. Unfortunately, neither John Locke nor any of the philosophers of the “Enlightenment” era were part of the assistant’s educational background. I explained that this ban on individuals’ rights to have sway over their animals (private property) was a Trojan Horse, and a device that would soon end beef, chicken, and hog production (making us all vegans and increasing substantially the rate of dementia – but I digress). Because I could have been talking to a fence post I shut up and reengaged in small talk.
Make no mistake about it, we are in trouble and, unfortunately, Texas and Alberta are not immune.
Get a friend , a relative, or a family member to vote for R and R and NOT OJ (OBAMA and Joe).
