A CAW Workers Voice Of Reason
This blog is posted from a 24 year Chrysler employee and 30 year CAW member. The purpose of this blog is to allow others to see the perspective of the average worker, rather than the views of CAW leader Ken Lewenza.
Coming from a city (Windsor) that labour and the CAW in particular, has had a strangle hold on for years, Paulsstuff is a breath of fresh air to read.
On a personal note, Paul has been blogging the voice of reason for all of two months, and has made quite a splash, with a mention in the National Post and a link at SDA this past week: plus he has a way cool guitar collection.

Every once in a while I [Paul, from Blue Blogging Soapbox] visit various French blogs, but I haven’t made a habit of it. My high school French is long past rusty, but it’s one of the things I’ve had on my to do list for a while; to upgrade and improve my French. We’re lucky here in Windsor in that we have an excellent French college in the City that I can take immersion courses from. I’m looking forward to signing up in the fall and expanding my world somewhat.

I’d like to thank the member of the academy…
The honour of this weeks Blogging Tories Site of the Week falls upon this blog, for which I am grateful to Paul over at Blue Blogging Soapbox. Paul does a great job keeping up on all the Blogging Tories blogs and coming up with a weekly best of. I know from running the site of the week a few years ago it takes a greater commitment than you would expect. You must daily wade through the numerous posts, keeping an eye for someone who is having a strong week, or had a particularly good post.
This is the second time I have been cited as Blogging Tories Site of the Week, and the second time Paul has picked me for a post that I was pleased with, yet met with yawning indifference once it out there. I have noted before, the first time may have saved this blog from the dust bin. This time Paul noted the post To My Daughter…, which went a bit viral within my family - causing me to have to explain it’s intent was political. It otherwise went unremarked until Paul did so, and for once again saving one of my better posts from obscurity, thanks Paul.
Thanks for all your support through the years and thanks for your work on the Blogging Tories Site of the Week.

Fuschi’s Canadian Forum
“They that can give up essential liberty to gain a little safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” - Benjamin Franklin
My friend Rick with his pitch for a Senate seat.
Further let me identify some advantages inherent to my candidacy. I do not own a Mexican villa and will not be able to identify its upkeep as a necessary reason to avoid Senate meetings. I am not a hockey player. Aside from a temporary bout of Trudeaumania, have never exhibited any of the characteristic ravings of a liberal. Also, my selection to the Senate will insert a Conservative federal representative into Windsor’s back door - a door to which the local union-sponsored monopoly on parliamentary representation, does not have a key. Hence we would have a Conservative spokesman to offset the drivel flow of misinformation from Windsor’s NDP MPs.
