So here they are
and yes, they were as good as they look. Cooked on the grill wrapped in foil for 2 hours at about 250F, rubbed 24 hours in advance with the rub from Steven Raichlen's book
. Finally, topped of with some of my favorite, Stubb's BBQ sauce.
Now to the real topic. I'm laughing that there is any shock at the latest Canadian political scandal. See here
. This has been brewing for a long time. The Liberal government has had at least a couple scandals that just fizzled (the "lost" $2 billion and the gun registry), so it's not surprising that they finally bit off more than they could chew. That's Canadian politics... scandal, ho-hum electorate, further abuse totally ignored by the citizens, finally a huge scandal.
The only thing the Canadian electorate gets excited about is any mention of change to their "one tier health care." I like that one the best. I've posted other examples of how crappy that thing is here somewhere before. Now a new one... my wife's step-mom's mother is due for cataract surgery to replace a lens in her eye. She is going to have both eyes done, 3 months apart to make sure the first one takes before doing the second. That's fine. Now, she's had a couple fainting spells and needs to have an EKG to make sure her heart is OK, but she has to WAIT (like all good Canadians) for 6 months! Could she have a major problem? Yes! Could she die of a treatable condition while she waits? Yes! What kind of bullshit is this? It's the super-wonderful Canadian health care system, where private care is ILLEGAL, no kidding.
I don't know how I got onto this, or where it's going... oh yeah, Canada sucks and I'm not going back. Not until I can get a CCW, they reverse the severe tax and spend crap, and nix the "universal health care system." Then maybe.
