  • What kind of uncaring hearts do some politicians possess?
    December 22, 2013 - 09:53

    MR. WAKEHAM: I generally agree with a lot of what you have to say in your columns, but please Sir stop rambling on about the CBC Turkey Telethon. In my opinion that telethon is a good event and a God Send in the present environment, for the poor who have been deprived of the ability to make a decent standard of living and who go to bed every night without theirs and their children's stomachs being filled with good nutrition and with very little of the securities that the rich enjoy. Shame on such people who would use their power in such a way over the poor! The poor are disenfranchised by the very politicians they put into power to appoint their natural resources in a way that a fair and equitable living should be available to everyone. All we have seen in this province over the centuries are politicians who have appointed our natural resources in a way that some of them have become ultra rich, along with their business friends who supported their campaigns with contributions. After they have satisfied their own wants and needs from our resource base there is very little monies left to go to the treasury of our province for creating jobs and infrastructure to support everyone. The best way for you to utilize your column Mr. Wakeham to benefit those who are deficient of food for Christmas is to be a proponent against the evils that the politicians perpetrate on the electorate of this province through the way they have governed and taken care of business. Not all politicians can be blamed but we can blame those at the top who have kept the rest of the politicians silenced on what they are up to. Your podium Mr. Wakeham, I will repeat myself, can be better served by you speaking out against what we are experiencing and have experienced since the beginning of time here in this province, because of the pilfering and give-away of our natural resources in the raw state where some of the politicians and some of their business friends are on their way to becoming Billionaires, yes I mean Billionaires. There are a handful at least

    Mr. Wakeham, I am not affiliated with any political party. I do not wish to comment on your article regarding Muskrat Falls or the present provincial premier, her government, policies or popularity. Instead, I wish to comment on your disparaging comments about the Christian faith as it relates to the birth of Christ & God's plan of salvation. You certainly do not have to share my beliefs- you are obviously welcome to form your own. I would ask however that you give my beliefs the same respect you would afford to others. If you had made similar comments about another groups religious beliefs or even their sexual orientation, I doubt the article would have made it to print. Please, if you wish to disparage government or any other group leave the good Lord out of it. He's not deserving or your disrespect or sarcasm. I pray you will have a blessed & merry Christmas.

    This was the worst article I've read in a long time. I can't believe the telegram would print such a thing. "Dunderdale be there with a big, fat smile on her puss" Wow, how degrading. I hope you get fired Bob Wakeham! I can't stand people who are so negative, the idea of Christmas is to be positive and happy, personal attacks are uncalled for and unprofessional. This article is so offending that I will be cancelling my telegram subscription.

    Bob, you disbelieve that version that God planned Jesus's death and so you ridicule the death of Jesus. Now I believe that Jesus died for speaking the truth when such freedom to speak against those in power wasn't tolerated. And the punishment was expected, inevitable, but not a plan of the Father. To tell the truth at all cost is a virtue, that should be appreciated by you, not ridiculed. Obviously millions have been inspired by the story of Jesus, despite the fairy tale parts thrown in. Yes Bob, there was a Jesus. And he knew the hearts of men (and women). Why would you worry about your past sins if there is no consequence? And even you see the problem with the CBC turkey show. Just as Jesus would say..... it's mostly for show and ratings. Did you come to that conclusion from Jesus's teachings?

    I think what ever way you look at the muskrat falls or the upper Churchill Falls one sided Questionable contract, Something has got to be done to Eliminate The Duffs Oil Fired Generating Plant that is listed as one of the top 10 dirty air Polluters in the WORLD, THIS CAN BE CHECKED ONLINE, and The Coal burning generators in NOVA Scotia , Must be equal to or passes the oil burning generators at Duffs Newfoundland when dealing with the one sided contract in place now with Quebec, when it expires in I Think 2041? That Paid Quebec $100 BILLION Dollars For its share of HYDRO POWER SOLD From The Upper Churchill Power TO NFLD $ 1 BILLION Dollars ,

    Sweet baby Jesus, Bob don't be telling the truth to much and saying things that people don't want to hear cause next thing they'll have you on the pension line that's running out cause of rediculous over spending by the brightest minds of Newfoundland. Say it is like it is Bob, cause wether people like it or not soon enough the we are all going to get a punch in the face from rising costs, well except from the ones who know how kiss a rich mans ass. That's my 3 cents, I mean 5 rounded up.

    You didn't get paid for this article, did you Bob? If you did, give back the money.

    If CBC have any respect Bob Wakeham would no longer be an employee of theirs....believe what you want but don't ridicule other people and their beliefs........if you can't say something nice, to people then don't say anything. That's what's wrong with our Country is the ignorance of people like Bob......thank you for the opportunity to comment.

    I have no doubt, Mr. Pseudonymous Smith, that long after we've kicked this Premier and her sad group of lickspittles out the door, we who will be paying for Dunderdale's Labrador folly for most of the next century will continue to be blessed with your daily off-key and out-of-tune renditions of "Muskrat Love". Here is the opening line of my version of the song - "Muskrat, Muskrat, candlelight. 'cause the cost of electric is an awful fright..."

    Thanks Bob, I attended the premiers presentation also, gathering that you did to from your article. I was shocked by the staged delivery, show, of this announcement on the federal government loan guarantee for the Muskrat Fall's project. A singing Xmas choir, the pompous stance and walk of government ministers and bureaucrats , the little lamb faces of many of the provinces business elate who have connection to the project and the presenting speech, a practised act , of Cathy Dunderdale. She had a pasted expression smile, foretelling her position of fixed isolation on Muskrat falls. I had the impression that the government people I saw in the confederation building, and those connected to their offices and government business were, and are, living in a world of their own, one isolated from that of the world out side for the common man.

    Praying to whom or what, "John Smith"? Is it true you are a PC caucus staff collective project?

    This was exhausting to read. About as captivating a read as the phone book.

    Ouch - that's nasty even for you Mr. Smith. Wishing someone's demise isn't very Christian - especially not this time of year. Not afraid of a lump of coal in your stocking? I guess not. Your gig as government's unofficial Muskrat mouthpiece has no doubt been quite lucrative. There is, of course, no Santa but hopefully that won't stop you from getting everything you deserve.

    I don't know about the premier Bob...but I pray you won't be around next year....

    • Grow up, John.

      What a disgusting comment, "John Smith." People of the province will not be able to bear the burden of the cost of this project simply by paying higher electric rates.. There won't be money available for anything else once this project gets going.

      Bye if the Premier goes, you and the rest of her lackeys won't be far behind. Good luck finding your next job after this mess up..

      I'm sure you know ALL about the premier: you must spend 90percent of your time licking her boots.

      John Smith ( whomever ) Your comments won't be around when you receive your first light bill when MF is completed. You may want to move to Nova Scotia where their PUB has a say in their power rates. I'm sure you will be happy to subsidize theirs.
