Fred Poirier: Defender of the Faith

Fred Poirier’s New Blog

My loyal blogging buddy and defender of the faith “more Democracy and less Hypocrisy” Fred Poirier has a new blog. Check it out here or you can get to it from my side bar under ‘Sites of Interest’.

I admire those who stand up (under their own name and all, especially) and speak out. Whether the person is right or wrong on what he/she is talking about, at least you heard their opinion, while at the same time allowing them to be heard. After all, we all want to be heard… it’s part of human nature and at the very core of what a democracy is suppose to be all about. Right? But when the media try to control the conversation by limiting what is allowed to be said… well then, democracy is being challenged and therefore like Fred, we should all stand up and be counted in defending it.

 

You measure a democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.

    Fred, I’ve got about six comments today from your ‘antagonist’ that were all hateful personal attacks, without an iota of meaningful and constructive content, or argument. Needless to say, they will not be published here.

    p.s. maybe the two of you can go at it on your blog Fred. You hear that, Harold???

    But then Harold (anonymous) you would have to identify yourself and take what comes your way, from having done so, like both Fred and I have with you, for example. Not an easy choice is it for someone whose past and present practises are to sling arrows from a safe distance, under cover of ‘anonymous’, is it? There is a big difference between talking tough this way and actually identifying yourself and thereby standing up like a man… warts and all. Respect and credibility are won with the latter approach, while the former generates the exact opposite. It’s your choice.

    Hi John,
    I used to consider you as a friend, now I’m not sure. You have a reject that’s been throwing stones from the bush on your blog like a Taliban for years. Now you try to pass that piece of crap onto me?
    If a person has no face then he would have no mouth. How can he be debating anything? I will not discuss anything with a second class citizen who wants to fight with a rag over his head. Why do you mention to him “Stand up like a man” He doesn’t know what that is. He is more like “SIT ON THE SHITTER AND LET ‘ER RIP.”

    Canada Criminal Code:
    Breach of trust by public officer
    122. Every official who, in connection with the duties of his office, commits fraud or a breach
    of trust is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not
    exceeding five years, whether or not the fraud or breach of trust would be an offence if it
    were committed in relation to a private person.
    R.S., c. C-34, s. 111.
    Synopsis: Breach of trust has been interpreted to mean using one’s public position to obtain,
    directly or indirectly, some benefit, or to promote one’s own private ends.

    Seems a few Politicians have taken employment after politics from those they did favors for, this mean that the majority of them are criminals?

    Hi John,
    In response to Anonymous 7:42
    All what you read there is very nice and gives you hope. Now try to implement that. You have to convinnce the RCMP to investigate. How do you do that? Don’t forget, the Mayor is the boss of the RCMP in your town, you don’t have local police officers, the RCMP is a contractor from the Province to protect you. That means, protect you or the Mayor. The main thing is to keep you quiet and don’t rock the boat. Please correct me if I’m wrong, I will apoligize. BUT you would have to explain to me how I am wrong. I’ve lived through this for the last 10 years. You have more chance to get a tornado in your area then having the RCMP stick their nose out against the Mayor. “You’re on your own cowboy!” Hire a lawyer, pay for him, pay the court costs, supply all the evidence, prove every word you say and even if you do that you still don’t have a sure chance of winning because the majority of people in power are ready to lie under oath to protect their ass, that means they have no conscience. If you don’t believe me I have invested $80,000 to find this out and “I AM PISSED OFF” with our phoney “JUSTICE SYSTEM” where you have to buy justice. The amount of justice you recieve is decided by the amount of money you are willing to spend, or you can afford to spend. They don’t care, they will starve you to death if they can, just to protect their own ass.
    We were investigated for a month by the youngest RCMP on the crew. When I asked him, “were you told not to talk to us?” his answer was, “you can put it that way” We were not interviewed or asked any questions about the case “SECRET COMMISSION”
    One side investigation all the way!
    Only in Port Mc Neill!
    Now go read the criminal code

    When the law breakers are the law makers injustice happens everywhere.
    To be able to change this we have to change our way of thinking of Government. The way to change Government is to take law writing out of their hands.
    Law bears down of police conduct. If the police would use their power appropriately we would have a much better society.

    Littlefatguy… nah… Little Big Man for your way of thinking. Right-on!

    In response to the little guy:
    “Law bears down on Police conduct” 100% true.
    But “Justice bears down on Prosecutors conduct”
    The prosecutor is not there to make sure the accused gets crusified, he is there to make sure the accused gets justice. Some of our prosecutors use their malice against the public if they don’t like what someone allegly did in the past coming from some lying witness.
    Taking you to court without being interogated by the police, in this case the RCMP is completely against our democratic system that out Government tries to preach to the rest of the world. Simply put “Hypocracy took over Democracy” in our case the prosecutor should ask the RCMP to get a statement from us, David Love and myself before taking us directly to court. Then he would have both sides of the story to make up his mind. To top this all off the Attourney General Office said there was nothing wrong with what the prosecutor did. You figure it out.
