It's Super Bowl Sunday!!  The big game pits the Denver Broncos who are 15 and 3 against the Seattle Seahawks who have the same record, kickoff is 430 our time 630 eastern and it will be played at MetLife Stadium which is in New Jersey not New York like many are saying.

Governor Chris Christie says people can go to New York for fun but the real action is in Jersey.

The good Gov went onto say when the game starts they will say live from New Jersey and not New York because that would be a big fat lie, New York is on the wrong side of the Hudson River all in good jest.

I have been watching the train wreck that involves the three stooges Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau, ditched because of gross negligence and misconduct involving the old expense account and yes they are guilty as charged.

The Senate was initiated to provide an independent point of view not be an open expense account for doing business other than what they were appointed to do, they have clearly failed at this.

Of course they will still get their benefits and pension, which is a joke in of itself, in the public sector, is would be the golden handshake.

These people make $132 thousand dollars a year plus expenses, obviously they didn’t read the fine print in this section not expecting an audit, they also get more money for being a committee chair or speaker so you can pad that bill too.
