Macleans' Dubious Award Winners Hall of Fame:

Featuring the twin brothers of destruction: Arafat and Flaherty

In case the completely distant and out to lunch journalists at Euromoney don’t know it (a condition which has been observed to exist on at least one occasion) Macleans magazine is Canada’s largest circulation magazine. Macleans was prompted by Euromoney’s absurd act of naming Jim Flaherty as their FM of the year ( or was it fraud artist of the year?) to put together a rogues gallery called the Dubious Award Winners Hall of fame.

The comparisons between Jim Flaherty and Yassar Arafat are striking, what with the wanton destruction that Flaherty has inflicted on innocent law abiding people in his home country of Canada, something which Euromoney must consider to be a colony of Britain, given their complete disregard for how Flaherty’s policies actually affect Canadians, but rather what it myopically means for them and their "high finance" cromies, intent on pillaging Canada.

Here is Macleans description of these dubious gentlemen's dubious awards:

Yasser Arafat, 1994 Nobel Peace Prize:

During the nearly 50 years Arafat led the Palestine Liberation Organization, the group was responsible for attacks that included bombings, assassinations and hijackings. He was rewarded for those efforts with a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, which he shared with Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.

Jim Flaherty, 2009 Euromoney magazine Finance Minister of the Year:

As Prime Minister Stephen Harper has yet to tire of repeating, Jim Flaherty was recently named finance minister of the year by Euromoney magazine. Euro-what? Harper and Flaherty swear it exists.

Cool pic of my man Jim!!

Wonder if those are the 18 blacked-out pages in that case under his arm??

Maybe he has saved all those letters we have sent him over the years & carries them around because they make him feel warm & fuzzy---Heh heh heh , I sure got those old farts that time , didn`t I.

Maybe Jim is writing his autobiography & those are the notes.

Hey Jim , you help any insurance companies lately??

Oh yeah , I forgot , no more online policy sales by the banks.

Got to love him.

I'll bet there are a lot of women(or men) out there that are thanking their lucky stars that they never had the chance to dump you. Dr. Mike also.

The obsession you guys have is just plain creepy.

Gutsy move posting under the "Anonymous" moniker.

Got to love guys or girls like you who do not have the conviction or the cojones to at least use you real name.

At least we are fighting for a cause we believe in.

What have you done for Canada & your fellow Canadians lately??

I think we all know the answer to that one.
