"And So It Has Come To This!"

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

Dear Dave:

The title of this post: "And So It Has Come To This" was one of the farewell tag lines of Mr. Johnny Carson on the final episode (some 24 years & 19 days ago) sequence of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." I am facing a bladder repair/augmentation surgery. It is somewhat risky as I've been in the queue so long, I have to go under a general anesthetic & I will be hospitalized for a week or more & clearly would not be able to write at my "absolute very best capacity" like I always do.  I could have gone to Montana 6 years ago & spent what $30,000.00 USD (which I didn't have) & had the surgery done the day after I arrived there (had I gone) but here in Canada I must wait & wait & wait & suffer (unless I am a Syrian refugee then I would have gotten it free straight away!) As such, I don't know if I'll even wake up as there can always be a chance of complications from surgery. I've only been waiting 71 months & 3 days for tomorrow's surgery (a mere trifle), so clearly as a Canadian I can see that the health care system is not broken! So maybe I will be back here writing again in a few weeks & maybe this is the last post at Executive Dissertations, but at least I am being given the chance to get better & maybe the specialists at my birth hospital the Royal Alexandra will get me ship shape again! I do believe that we need to have a full on combined public/private combined health system, Alberta Health Services is way too bloated with administration & Albertans are suffering. The corporation should be killed & be put back under the auspices of Alberta Health under the auspices of a Deputy Health Minister who is a Medical Doctor, Ph. D., or even a Registered Nurse. End of story! Thanks for this monstrosity of inefficiency Ron Liepert!

Sayonara Senors Et Senoras,

Rory

Poor Harjit: He Was Born With A Silver Foot In His Mouth!

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

May IInd, MMXVII

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

Dear Dave:

Rory Fact 1:

I took the Canadian Army physical in MCMXCIX (1999) & failed it due to a bum ticker, which rules me out of both armed forces & police duty.

Harjit Fact 1:

The Member of Parliament for Vancouver-South & Minister Of National Defence, the Hon. Harjit Sajjan, PC (Liberal) certainly served with distinction on the ground as a field commander in Afghanistan, as well as with the Vancouver Police Department, but he never planned anything. But he is an honourable retired Lieutenant-Colonel, whose ability to speak Punjabi made him a tremendous asset during his service years.

Rory Fact 2:

I was born on November XIth, MCMLXXXIV (1974) & so have a tremendous respect for Harjit & other veterans & attend Remembrance Day ceremonies every year without exception.

Harjit Fact 2:

Is part of a Liberal administration wherein veterans under Veterans Affairs Minister the Hon. Kent Hehr, PC, MP, Liberal, Calgary-Centre are being shafted with one time payments instead of being allowed to stay on a monthly pension & many active duty soldiers are quite poor & have trouble supporting their families & have to rely on supports. To be fair, ex-PM Steve Harper, PC & his Conservative Vet & Defence Ministers also gave the shaft to Canadian vets with these forced buyouts.

Rory Fact 3:

My father Joe's birth country of The Netherlands was liberated from the Nazis by Canadian Forces in WWII.

Harjit Fact 3:

Harjit has been in the Liberal cabinet what XVIII (18) months now, & what really has he done besides making these embarrassing comments that bring dishonour to Her Majesty's Royal Canadian Armed Forces?

Soldiering On,

Rory

Pauley Perrette Week Part Sept

The vivacious & talented Pauley Perrette is good enough to "return to the scene" one last time for a "Command Performance" as Executive Dissertations concludes "Pauley Perrette Week" with this fabulous & empowered lady who I idolize & admire tremendously. Her work on "NCIS" (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) on the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) TV Network is beyond excellent! Today Pauley is pointing out that with the overload of information in this fast-paced internet age, it is hard to distinguish fact from fiction, to get at the real truth.

"The internet is a strange, strange place that is full of mostly lies. I would say mostly lies."

"America's Most Wanted",
