Work is Work

Umm yeah, so first three months as a salaried employee should be only about 60 days of work on a 5/2 schedule and 480hrs (based on 8hr days)

So from May 6 to July 27 i put in 818hrs. So why did i want this job that takes me away from my family?

Had a wonderful conversation with my Wife, she can see the bigger picture. So in opposition to my cutthroat cut and run angle, will stay for the year and evaluate. I can say though that the company is a good company to work for, but their organization is not refined yet. As such leads to me taking on roles that i wasn’t hired for. It’s either do the work or watch the people around me fail. My brother says my expectations of others is too high, that i expect others to step up to the plate as i would. He is right, and a tough realization.

Change of Title

Well, finished up the last project. Now at home with the family. Turned down a role as the Quality manager for a national pipeline project and chose to be in my home town as an employee. First day was yesterday, was good. People there are nice and friendly and my Wife was happy i made the change. Kids were pretty cool with it too.

Wrapping it up

15 days left on the project. Took some time to be with the wife for a few days at an inspection conference. Was great, do enjoy spending time with her. But as they say, out of sight out of mind. Within a couple of days within me leaving to go back to finish up this project, no text, no mail, no call.  Just stellar. So i am changing my life to be with my kids and try to rekindle

Ah fuck it, it’s all bullshit anyways. All i know is the next breath i take and some days that is not even guaranteed.

 

Albertan Separation

Yes Please! Times are tough on Alberta, we are in the same situation as the colonists were in the 1700’s in America. What will be our Boston Tea Party i wonder?

Alberta, Saskatchewan are both in the same place – taxation without representation. Alberta and Sask. only get 12 senate seats for 8.5million people while Quebec gets 24 seats for 8million.

Equalization is a complete joke. Alberta is literally paying Quebec to stay in Canada. 221billion since the 60’s – 221billion…….

But separation will not come without it’s own perils. International borders need to be determined, agreement with first nations, trade agreements for our resource products (Oil, Grain, Lumber), internal agitators, and landlocked. All issues that will need to be dealt with.

But i have faith, Albertans live in the harshest Province in Canada (NWT, Nanavut, Yukon take the honors for territories) we will prevail. Hey, maybe others in Western Canada would want to join the bandwagon and join Alberta. But, i do think if Alberta separates, the Feds will jig the books in their favor to not allow any other province to leave. This would mean Canada would be in a hot civil war (presently cold with the left and right bs). Alberta would have to support other Provinces and Territories to leave Confederation.

Comments on NP

National Post Face book feed keeps deleting this comment:
No it won’t. That is faulty logic. Yes Trudeau is a complete moron and the Liberal party are pathetic. But that will not change self defense laws in Canada. The Conservatives will not change the laws, look at Scheer, he may be our next Prime Minister, but the man is a milkdud. Do you honestly think he will address rural crime by allowing the citizendry to defend themselves? Do you think he or any Conservative will get involved at the local level to discuss charges in regard to self defense with the RCMP? Do you think that the Conservatives will put forward a bill that even resembles Castle Law? The answer is NO, they won’t. The backlash by the civil unions and stall and delay in Gov’t would effectively paralize the Gov’t. All Politicians either know this already, or learn it very quickly once they enter office.
No one is coming to help the citizendry, the Gov’t (Liberal or Conservative) only cares about gaining or retaining power. The monopoly of force lies directly with the Gov’t and they will never let go of that power to allow citizens to defend themselves.
Yes, one can argue that we are allowed to defend ourselves in Canada. But here is the base rule with that, no matter what happens in a self defense situation, both parties are treated equally guilty. In the case of Mr. Maurice, it was only when the crown could not guarantee a conviction that the charges were dropped. Our right to self preservation is not an automatic guarantee in our country. Quite simply, our country is not set up that way. Our country is set up that it is “peace, order and good government” nothing in there about citizens self defense.
Getting rid of Trudeau will not change one damn thing.
