I'll give you something to be pissed about.

(To those of sensitive natures: Please read, but just ignore the bad words.)

My mum is annoyed(pissed) that the TTC is allowing the atheists to post their message "There is no God, so relax and enjoy your life"
While I might not agree with their belief that there is no higher being, they do have the right to speak their mind. Basically that doesn't bother me so much.

What does pissed me off to no end and has been eating away at my thoughts for the past few days. A school in New Brunswick has stopped playing the National Anthem.


It's the NATIONAL fuck'n ANTHEM. NATIONAL as in part of our country. Free country.

The country that has suffered loss of so many of our soldiers and continues to do so. Singing the anthem in school is patriotic, reminding us that no matter what our beliefs are we are still CANADIANS. Reminds us that fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins are out there in uniform protecting our rights. Not just our Military Soldiers, but RCMP, CSIS, Coast Guard, police officers, firemen, hell, I could continue on for a very long time.

Apparently the ANTHEM was banned because there are parents who complained. But Principal Erik Millett of Belleisle Elementary School in Springfield, N.B., won't say what exactly the complaint was,c iting privacy issues.

Ok fine.

To those parents: Get the fuck out of my country! I don't want one more soldier to die to give you the right to be an asshole.

To Mr Millett: Stop being an asshole and be proud of the country that gives you the freedom to be an assole.

I remember when they used to play the National Anthem at the movie theater before the movie started. I tried to find it but no luck, so instead here is the old signoff from CBC TV.

How cool is our country?? Well we have a beer named after us. They have a commercial that I think we should sing every day!!! LOL

Where were the rest of the parents the very next day? why didn't they descend on the school board. A FEW parents didn't want the anthem. Majority rules buddy. It is easy to take something away. Damn site harder to get it back.

No doubt. Apparently the parents didn't know. This Mr Millett made the decision with out notifying anyone. To be honest I don't ask the girls every day if they play the anthem. I just assumed it. Well as soon as word got hit the fan in a big way.
