Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)
My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Saturday Morning Confusion # 442
Boy, your often bewildered reporter is really confused today!
It seems a small but vocal chunk of Canadian voters have a problem selling arms to Saudi Arabia, but have no compunctions about buying oil from the Saudi's rather than building pipeline to the East Coast ...., even though a pipeline is much safer than rail or truck. (How people can continually cut off their nose to spite their face is totally beyond me!)
President Obama reminded the British people during his trip to England that getting out of the European Union was a bad idea for a number of reasons ....., so the next time those assholes in Quebec decide they want to separate I'm going to bring in Obama AND Morgan Freeman to explain things to them!!!!!! (Let's face it, Morgan Freeman has been president of the United States more times than Barack Obama has!)
It seems that Ted Cruz (Or Grandpa Munster's kid as I like to call him.) is getting a lot of conspiracy theories told about him. (Now y'all know that I personally hate conspiracy theories, but in this case they are quite funny and thought provoking.)
- The first conspiracy is that Ted Cruz had a sex change operation: The woman in the photo did bear an uncanny resemblance to the Texas senator. For most people, the discovery would seem nothing more than a random, mildly entertaining coincidence. But to many users on the thread, it represented so much more than that.
- That ted Cruz is actually the Zodiac killer: The hypothesis first originated out of nowhere in early 2013, when a Twitter account with the handle @RedPillAmerica posted a note that Cruz’s upcoming speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference that year would be titled “This Is the Zodiac Speaking.” (“It was hilarious to me when it first came on my radar,” @lindzeta told Yahoo News in a direct message. “While it’s logically impossible, there’s definitely a part of it that seems like it could be true. It’s so outlandish, but Cruz seems to have this evil lunatic hiding underneath his whole public demeanor. It had just the right balance of possibility and impossibility.”)
That opened the floodgates for other comparisons, which include (but are not limited to) Grandpa Munster, Kevin Malone from “The Office,” Duke University basketball player Grayson Allen, Mrs. Doubtfire and — most recently — the woman on “Maury.”
And perhaps the best rumour of all: The National Enquirer has published what it says is conclusive evidence that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael B. Cruz, is the man photographed next to JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald distributing pro-Castro leaflets in 1963 in New Orleans.
The Cruz presidential campaign fired back unequivocally. “This is another garbage story in a tabloid full of garbage,” communications director Alice Stewart told McClatchy. “The story is false; that is not Rafael in the picture.”
The explosive suggestion that Cruz’s father would have had any affiliation with Oswald is not corroborated in any other way. Cuban-born Rafael Cruz is now a fervent anti-communist, but there was a time he supported then-rebel leader Fidel Castro. His son, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, frequently relates his father’s arrest and torture by government officials and subsequent escape to the United States.
Jacqui Kendrick, a stay-at-home mom, says a CFS worker showed up unexpectedly at her door in early April. The worker told her they were doing a “well-being check” after receiving a complaint about her children being left unsupervised.
Kendrick has three children ages two, five and 10, who love to play in the family’s backyard after school. The backyard is fully fenced in, with a wood fence covering three sides, and a portion of the front covered by a chain link fence and gate. (Jesus Christ, I can remember when I was a kid my mother used to kick us out the front door first thing in the morning, and told us to come back when it was getting dark outside!)
One little-reported aspect of the Mike Duffy acquittal; the P.E.I. Senator’s giant inflatable counterpart could now be cleared to fly again.
“He (Duffy) will be sticking around, so we’ll have to put our minds to exactly what we’ll be doing with that balloon,” said Aaron Wudrick, federal director of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation, which originally commissioned the three storey-tall Duffy.
Had the Senator been convicted and sent to jail, it’s likely Canada would have seen the last of the enormous balloon.
But now, with Duffy’s full Senate privileges restored, the creation —which is currently collecting dust in storage — may rise again.
“I shouldn’t say who, but we have received more than one request from groups that are interested in purchasing the balloon from us,” said Wudrick, noting that it doesn’t represent Duffy, per se, but the Senate as a whole.
