Bond Issuance Coincides With Peace Agreement

What a coincidence, eh?
SEOUL, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Fitch Ratings upgraded South Korea's long-term foreign currency rating on Monday by one notch, citing lower security risks on the peninsula after North Korea agreed to scrap its nuclear weapons programmes.

The rating upgrade to A-plus from A came just before South Korea is due to start global marketing of $1 billion worth of sovereign bonds in dollars and euros....

Just interesting, that's all. It's food for thought.

I want to tell you all a story 'bout a GTA urban wife

Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper Valley Junior High

Well her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play

She said Mom I got a note here from the Harper So-Cons in the G.T.A.

The note said Misses Urban Girl, you're wearing your dresses way too high

It's reported you've been talking to the youth and ethnics, women’s groups and gays

And we don't believe you ought to be a bringing up your little girl this way

It was signed by the secretary, Harper So-Cons GTA.

Well, it happened So-Cons G.T.A. were gonna meet that very afternoon

They were sure surprised when Misses Urban Girl wore her miniskirt into the room

And as she walked up to the blackboard I still recall the words she had to say

She said, I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper So-Cons G.T.A.

Well there's John Reynolds, sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a date

Messrs. Flaherty and Clement always missing that retirement is just 4 months away

And Mr. Capobianco can you tell us what your smokin’ that makes you blind

And shouldn't Peter Kent be reading news not playing with you wasting all his time

Well Mr Harper couldn't be here 'cause he’s filling sandbags for the bunker again

He may as well get ready cuz the writing’s on the wall – “you loser has-been”

Then you have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit

Well this is just a little piece of urban Canada where none of you are ever gonna fit.

No, I wouldn't put you on because it really did, it happened just this way

The day my Mama socked it to the Harper So-Cons G.T.A.

That's funny. I can't believe anyone would stop a girl from wearing short skirts. I'd be about the last person to do so.

I don't know if you can tell by this site, but I'm not so con, at all. I don't dislike so cons, but I'm just not socially conservative.

On the other hand, I'm disgusted by the liberals and dislike the way they and for that matter the former PC regime treated the west.

The niggling problem of voting for a party that's slightly more socially conservative than the corrupt jackasses in power is far outweighed by the fact the Liberals are completely amoral and fiscally irresponsible.

I wouldn't be able to live with myself knowing that I voted for the Adscam/Chretien Party.

Also, the Libs have a bunch of rural riding ont. backbenchers (ie: Dan McTeague) who are worse than anyone in the Cons.
