Elections!

Last weekend the advanced polls for the elections opened and my parents, brothers and I made it our mission to go out and vote.

Despite all of our disappointment of how the Liberals have handled politics in the past couple of years, we voted for the Liberal candidate in our riding. After all, we don't want "liberalism" and "social liberties" pay the price for their mistakes.

The tories (Conservatives) are now heading the polls. So far they have a minority %40 and who knows, they are even capable of achieving majority perhaps not now but in a couple of years, whenever there is a re-election!

I am not too worried about fiscal policies (i.e Educational Funds and social programs such as Health Care, Unemployment Assistance and Child Care), but rather unsure about what could happen to Foreign Affairs, Military Engagement in USA projects and Provincical Relations.

Other than the above mentioned issues, all seems to be well in my life. But I wish someone could tell me why I have lately been having nightmares and paic attacks in the middle of the night!

Hey Mister!

I checked Forbes Website, Markets and AFX links, but I need to know what to look for! News on China? Australia? Stocks?

P.S I have not money! I have just started to save! I might have to just do with NY or Ottawa (Total Cost of Max $400)

An old Bon Jovi song starts with "Hey Mister", javouni kojaei ke yadet bekheir!

"Hey mister can you help me
I'm a loner on the run
I'm just looking for tomorrow
And I ain?t gonna hurt no one

I jumped headfirst into a bottle
I was looking for a friend
Came up just short of nothing
I didn't find the truth I only found an end"
