Hon. Dave Eggen B. Ed., MLA-Elect, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

The State of Minnesota & its Governor Mark Dayton are hard at work in trying to tell Minnesotans to be vigilant in the fight against influenza. This disorder can kill anyone, but children, seniors, & those with respiratory problems can be particularly affected. What with all the talk by Alberta Health Services & governing officials about getting flu shots, its important to consider heeding these warnings for Alberta students & others who might be sensitive to getting a cold. For example: the sick, the elderly, the infirm etc.

"I urge Minnesotans to be vigilant, & take all necessary precautions to protect themselves, their children, & their loved ones from the threat of influenza. We are taking this threat very seriously, & will continue doing everything possible to prevent the further spread of this illness in our classrooms & our communities."

Saint Paul,

Dear Dave:

In honour of the Los Angeles Fire Department & Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson & his new disaster film: "San Andreas" (which I saw in glorious AVX 3D at a local Cineplex (TM) theatre last night), we turn to Sergeant Joe Friday of the Los Angeles Police Department for a comment on the importance of police, fire, & other first responders. The men & women who lay their lives down on the line in regular times, & in emergencies such as the scenario of an earthquake in Los Angeles on the San Andreas Fault (which will occur in real life) & in Nevada & San Francisco. Here we face many suicides of these fine folks, as do many other jurisdictions & these fine people must be given respect for the high level of stress they endure daily. Plus, the Sarge & other law enforcement officials won't tolerate crimes like rape & murder even in a disaster situation as good governance must come first.

"Let me say, people like me, who work for the law, will not tolerate the crime that occurs in your neighborhood, street or anywhere. If something goes wrong in your city, we'll be on our way to help you."

Safely ensconced once again power in January as Senate Majority Leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of The Bluegrass State of Kentucky remarks on his appointment of a Mrs. Bridget Bush to the National Women's History Museum Commission. Since Mitchell is a leader himself, its important that he appoints good strong female leaders to this job to preserve the rich culture that Kentuckian women have created as part of the Kentucky & American mosaic.

"I am proud to appoint Bridget to help pioneer this important commission. She is a strong Kentucky conservative who will represent Kentucky well in this new role."

Dear Dave:

Just as I ran Independent status in last month's provincial election, we have the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of The Freedom & Unity State of Vermont. Don't let Bernie's run for the Democratic nomination for President Of The United States Of America fool you or anyone. Bernie is running under an established party banner b/c he is ticked off at the Democratic establishment & candidates such as Former U.S. Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton, Democratic-New York for not keeping their word & getting quality liberal progressive minded legislation passed. He remains fiercely independent in nature. Bernie wants collegiate & trade school to be free for students who cannot afford to go to school. How he asks can they reach their potential & become "independent" thinking adults & members of society will they ever be able to contribute to making the lives of the citizens of Vermont & America better?

"If our economy is to be strong, we need the best educated work force in the world. That will not happen if every year hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college & if millions more leave school deeply in debt."

Dear Gordon:

A couple on vacation in Los Angeles when the wife's water breaks in their hotel room. Sergeant Joe Friday of the Los Angeles Police Department Traffic Offense Task Force is in the hotel on a separate investigation. Upon hearing the baby cry, he gets into the room where the baby was born as the door was adjacent to let a doctor & nurse in from a nearby hospital since the mother couldn't get to the hospital in time, she had to give birth at her temporary residence. This was rather nice of the Sarge as he is checking on the health of the mother & baby. Outside the hallway upon leaving, Sgt. Friday runs into the father who is coming back with the towels from the front desk clerk that the doctor requested. The Sarge can't resist being ever so polite & offer his best to the family through the dad. Albeit it in a "matter of fact" police fashion since he's on duty!

"So your a father now, congratulations."

Dear Gordon:

Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland wants readers of Executive Dissertations to know about his efforts in routing out corruption. Having just taken office this pass January, Larry is quite ticked off with all of the hidden secrets from past administrations (just like the about to be newly in office New Democrats are here I am sure in Alberta, shredded documents, um confetti aside.) The Governor is cleaning up this mess through his power of signing State Executive Orders. He is doing this to show Maryland's young people that he wants an administration that is corruption free with public servants in his office to serve honourably & the people first rather than lining their own pockets.


"Executive Order #01.01.2015.08 (amends Executive Order #01.01.2015.07):

WHEREAS, Public service is a public trust, requiring employees to place loyalty to the Constitution, the laws, & ethical principals above private gain;

Dear Gordon:

In honour of the sad news that "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will not be back this fall on CBS Television, we have a quote from Joe Friday on the crime scene process. CSI, which was based in Las Vegas, Nevada & was a great tool for promoting not just proper police work, but getting people excited about forensic science & using it as a tool to prove either absolute guilt or absolute innocence.

Establishing a proper witness identification or "i.d." on the body of a dead female student is now of the highest priority of the Los Angeles Police Department & Detective Joe Friday. Joe gets his fellow officers to assist in this matter when he finds a picture of the victim with a young male (presumably a boyfriend) at the crime scene.

"Lets show this to witness in a photo lineup, maybe she can i.d. the guy."

Let me get this straight, in between his blinks I almost missed the hilarity in the fact that the Progressive Conservative remaining caucus members have brought in "blinky" as their new Interim Leader (the last Interim Leader of course being the Hon. Jim Prentice, BA, LLB, QC, PC Premier, Progressive Conservative, Defeated) Good old Hon. Ric McIver, Minister of Jobs, Skills, Training & Labour, Progressive Conservative, MLA-Elect, Calgary-Hays!

- The decision is glorious because it shows that PC Alberta is tolerant of all voters, including the gay hating, Street Church members. Tolerant enough to have one of their lead marchers & supporters named to run their party.

- Reduced to 1/7th of their original caucus, Ric can now take the piece of heavy equipment behind him to destroy the Sky Palace before the handover to Rachel Notley, BA, LLB, Premier-Designate, New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona. Oh wait he already did that under the Alison Redford regime (no he didn't.) Yes he did (no, he actually didn't.)

In celebration of the police themed movie called "Hot Pursuit" starring the co-star of one of our II Joe Friday's (that being Ed O'Neill), a Sofia Vergara of "Modern Family" & Academy Award (TM) Winner Reese Witherspoon we bring in a relevant Joe Friday quote. The theme of the film is that Reece's cop character has to protect a female witness whose life is in danger & under threat from thugs. In the quote today, Joe Friday has to deal with a suspect who has already killed a woman, so the film's plot relates.

Right on the ball as always with his comments to idiotic thugs is Sergeant Joe Friday of the Los Angeles Police Department. Joe has just captured a man who in a drunken rage beat his fiance & the mother of his two kids to death. The suspect who admits his guilt insists he is sorry & loved his lady doesn't get get any sympathy from the Sarge. He shouldn't & Sgt. Friday expresses the moron's lie about "loving" the victim in a matter of fact way with comments we can all agree with.

"You have a strange way of showing it."

Rory Joe Koopmans, B. Admin., Independent Candidate, Edmonton-Centre

May IVth, MMXV

Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Calgary-Elbow

Dear Gordon:

It isn't rocket science as to why the Hon. Jim Prentice, BA, LLB, QC, PC, Premier, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Calgary-Foothills is getting so much negative press as your leader. Besides the fact that he is doing a shitty job running the campaign, he is being shown to be even more frenetic in his decisions than he was as a federal cabinet minister. I mean four cabinet portfolios in 6.5 years, that should have been a warning sign that he would wind up being a boob & the quick changeovers in portfolios don't exactly inspire any confidence in people that he accomplished anything in them. Gawd I miss Alison Redford so badly now!

I. Jamie Lall, Independent, Chestermere-Rockyview arguably would have been a stronger candidate than Bruce McAllister, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Chestermere-Rockyview. Granted the past restraining order is rather sickening, but, if the Tories didn't think Candidate Lall was a good fit for them, why did they let him run in MMXII?

II. You saying that you invented the GSAs & got them passed in your literature. Yeah thats rich, I don't think so so Gordo! My most honourable opponent Laurie Blakeman, Alberta Liberal & Alberta Green & Alberta Party, Edmonton-Centre deserves credit for the genesis of the idea & pushing it through. You & your government deserve jack shit! Thats like saying you got the citizens of Calgary a deal on the lease for the building for the Calgary Public School Board when you were its Chairman. What you got is the lease fee collectors putting their hands up the derrieres of the trustees for their cash for at least double or more what they should be paying.

III. While Rachel Notley-Arab, New Democratic Candidate, Edmonton-Strathcona & NDP leader & Brian Jean, Wildrose Candidate, Fort McMurray-Conklin & Wildrose Leader have run brilliant & inclusive campaigns, Leader Prentice & his staff are running dull as hell campaign. While Rachel & Brian have more candidate info on their websites such as campaign addresses, "Leader Jim" has a 1-888 number directed to central office phone banks in Calgary & led by people who don't answer their phones or make calls back to help potential PC voters.

     - An example of this is my wonderful opponent in Edmonton-Centre, Catherine Keill, Progressive Conservative & many other Tory offices don't even have their campaign mailing addresses on their websites. Then they are surprised that they are short on volunteers & that they are short on monies coming in. Many people like to mail in paper cheques to campaigns, especially if they are nervous about using Paypal. Thus PC campaigns are losing thousands of dollars in cheque donations. I mean why the secrecy?

IV. Then to top things off The Edmonton Journal endorses the Jim Prentice Team for another term in office, as does The Edmonton Sun (owned by The Journal, can you say unethical.) Now these editorial boards can endorse who they want. But by wanting the PC government to survive in power, it shows these papers are part of the Illuminati, the Proletariat, & the New World Order!

"Will The Senator Yield The Floor?"-Chuck Schumer

Rory Joe Koopmans, B. Admin., Independent Candidate, Edmonton-Centre

May IIIrd, MMXV

Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed.,  Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Calgary-Elbow

Dear Gordon:

Onto The Empire State of New York & Senator Chuck Schumer. Charles talks about the importance of health care & proper health needs such as nutrition advice be given to the children of lower income families. Whether you as a person are for or against health care, you cannot disagree that children whose folks cannot afford proper health insurance should for the sake of humanity have some help in this area so that they can improve their lot in life. As the next MLA Edmonton-Centre, I would like to see better health care for homeless residents in the riding as they shouldn't be discriminated against with poorer health care just because they lack an abode. Besides, with the crappy, nay shitty job Alberta Health Services managers are doing, any change to improve things would be better. AHS managers organizational management is unreal (unreally bad.) They are managing the system just as well as you did in singlehandedly steering in those GSA rights w/o any help from my esteemed competitor, Candidate Laurie Blakeman, Alberta Liberal, Alberta, & Alberta Green, Edmonton-Centre!

"When it comes to something as important as health care, we cannot allow a situation to arise in which children cannot get the checkup or prescription they need because their family cannot afford the payments or insurance."

The Excelsior State,

The Saturday Presidential Buzz-George Walker Bush

Rory Joe Koopmans, B. Admin., Independent Candidate, Edmonton-Centre

May IInd, MMXV

Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Calgary-Elbow

Dear Gordon:

Not since VIth President John Q. Adams, Democratic-Republican, Massachusetts succeeded his dad, IInd President John Adams, Federalist-Massachusetts as President had the Chief Executive's job had both a father & son elected to the post. Unlike both Presidents Adams & his father, XLIst President George H. Bush, Republican-Texas, President George W. Bush managed to get elected to II terms of office in MM (2000) & MMIV (2004.) Wanting to work across the aisle with the late & very respected Senator Edward (Teddy) M. Kennedy, Democratic-Massachusetts (just like the Adams boys) on education, the President wanted the Senator's help on the "No Child Left Behind Act." With a Masters In Business Administration (MBA) from Harvard Business School (yes I know, in Massachusetts (just like the Adams boys), I'm sensing a theme here readers of Executive Dissertations, aren't you) the President felt the need to work with all parties to get resources & monies to classrooms directly so more school kids would get a proper start on their educational journey, particularly those who were wanted help in science & math. I propose to do the same as the MLA for Edmonton-Centre, to make sure provincial educational laws for curriculum ensure we have the best learning materials possible for the subject areas under study.

"I propose to train 70,000 high school teachers to lead Advanced Placement courses in math & science, bring 30,000 math & science professionals to teach & give early help to students who struggle with math."

January XXth, MMI (2001)-January XXth, MMIX (2009),

An Editor's Note: Former Major League Baseball (MLB) Texas Rangers Owner George Walker Texas Ranger doesn't get enough credit for his reach out to the LGBTQ community. In an unprecedented move, he had a gay man on his staff as an event planner who worked wonders with The White House social calendar. A remarkable factoid from a supposed extremist conservative Republican.

The Student Sayings Of Joe Friday On Fridays From Los Angeles, California Case Ninety-Three

Rory Joe Koopmans, B. Admin., Independent Candidate, Edmonton-Centre

May Ist, MMXV

Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Calgary-Elbow

Dear Gordon:

An Editor's Note: This Week's Joe Friday blog post is brought to you by Mike Allen, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo or as his friends called him: "The Minnesota Twofer!"

Whether here or in Los Angeles where Detective Joe Friday resides, hell: ANYWHERE, sexually based offences are considered especially heinous. The Los Angeles Police Department sends in Vice Squadron Commander Friday to investigate the death of a woman below a bridge when its discovered she was both a prostitute & a student. The difference being that it was as part of a "forced prostitution" ring, rather than in the format of "consensual sex." Something that the Sexual Assault Crisis Centre of Edmonton & other groups are doing a valiant job in combating & this is a file I would like to assist on if elected as the next MLA for Edmonton-Centre. Joe explains to his Detectives & younger & inexperienced officers that there is always a motive or message to these deranged perverts methods. Quite often, its so they can show they are a threat to others to violate them sexually &/or possibly murder them as well.

"Its to send a message to someone else: we did this to her, we'll do it to you to."

Despicable Beyond Imagination Joe & Eternal Peace For Baltimore,

Rory
