Official Congrats From Harper
29 years ago today we were a couple of kids thinking we would be together forever. Today we're still kids at heart (well I am, Mr. Scout seems to have a knack for maturity, I think he was born with a full set of teeth or something) and it still looks like we'll be together forever. I know, 29 years plus three years living together first is a long time but we like to buck trends).
We received an official note from Stephen Harper and that's the seal on it. Looks kinda , hmm, down south. The note read:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scout,
Congratulations to you and your daughter! I have placed your names on the Focus on Family registration. The Conservative Government is committed to honour Canadians like yourselves and next year we will be giving tax breaks on a sliding scale per years of non-gay marriage. This will be reflected in special cards allowing for further GST reduction. Your daughter is welcome to contribute to my campaign.
Stephen and Laureen Harper
(the note contained these historic photos of the PM and his family)
Yes if you make substantial contribution to Con party then you may get 1%GST break, of course retailer may add his/her own 10% profits, and some other tax breaks that he promises. Is that not nice of him? Any breaks you must return with interest in contributions to Cons.
So, Harper plans some discriminatory benefits, eh? Hello Supreme COurt of Canada!
Good thing its within walking distance from the PMO! He will be there a lot I imagine!
P.S. I finally got my major post on yesterday.
bill, i'm sure he'd love legislation like that!!! say your post last night, started to respond but it was too late, brain was in 'zzzzzzz' mode. will try later on
I love examples of lasting marriages.
I wish you both many, many more years of wedded bliss.
thanks to you too j. mr. scout made a lot of 'no comments' to the landlord's children's questions tonight at dinner with them :)
I can't even imagine that. My longest one is the present one, which is going on 10 years, but that's because we're no longer together, but still officially married. So I may wind up with 29 years too, but only officially. (You knew I was rather weird, didn't you?! :) lol
Good luck to you both for the next 29, and big hugs!! All the best!!
As for Harper, you know better than to trust that man anyway. Whatever he gives from one hand, he takes double or more with the other, unless you're rich, of course.
thanks annamarie. ya, i remember you telling me about your 'official marriage' and i think you guys have something kinda cool worked out. who isn't weird??
oh come on now, harper is so trust worthy i would allow him to adopt my cat and turn her into a christian feline. of course i would charge him enough for this to make me wealthy.
