An Open Letter to our Political Leaders

Tweet

I am appalled by the lack of debate in the House on the situation in the Ukraine and any role Canada should take on. PM has unilaterally started committing Canadians to go to the volatile region to take part in NATO posturing against Russia.

Jim Flaherty’s Death Does Not Warrant the Hero Worship he Has Been Receiving

Tweet

I shouldn’t have to open this post with I’m sorry for Flaherty’s family’s loss. That is a given.  In fact, I can empathize. I have lost people recently.  I really hope Flaherty’s family finds the strength to continue with their lives.  It’s one reason why I haven’t really spoken of it on Thursday . . . → Read More: Jim Flaherty’s Death Does Not Warrant the Hero Worship he Has Been Receiving

Tweet

Boys n girls, leaders of the Harpercon cheerleader has just sunk to new lows today — they printed an attack on a baby boy just born today.   I’m not kidding.  You see, boys n girls, Justin Trudeau and Sophie Gregoire’s third child was born today, a baby boy they named Hadrian.  Yup, . . . → Read More: Stay Klassy John Ivison And The Nasty Post

Economic Inaction Plan 2014 — One Step Closer to Elimination of Universal Health Care

On page 279 of Jimbo Flaherty’s latest budget which was declared pretty much a yawner by the punditry, ignored by the masses more interested in gold medals in Sochi,  is Stevie Harper’s main dream to kill universal health care.  We shouldn’t be surprised though; not long ago, Stevie closed the  Health Council of . . . → Read More: Economic Inaction Plan 2014 — One Step Closer to Elimination of Universal Health Care

Seems to be the new buzzword these days.  It sounds like an excuse to me…

Planes, Trains and Automobiles (Ferries Edition)

Tweet

Or Ferries?

 

Why does the Liberal Government insist on shitting upon coastal ferry users? It’s quite simple really.  We are a bunch of socialists.  A sick society that Christy Clark and her mentor Gordon Campbell do not need to retain power. Imagine if this government closed the Sea to Sky for certain . . . → Read More: Planes, Trains and Automobiles (Ferries Edition)

Sell Out. End Game Edition.

Under the convenient cover of Rob Ford’s very public downward spiral this week, our governments, Provincial and Federal, have been busy dismantling our Public Trust.

I Know You want It!

My opinion on what the fuck that was with BC RCMP Tuesday morning, that is…

 

Give me a fucking break.  We are supposed to believe that a drug addicted and drunken welfare couple from a basement suite in Surrey conspired to cause bloodshed and mayham in Victoria on Monday?

Stevie Harper Will Never Leave, At Least, Not Until Next Election

Tweet

Many journos, pundits, and journos are speculating as to whether or not ol’ Stevie Spiteful will leave sooner rather than later.

Still Think the Harpercons aren’t Running a Dictatorship?

Tweet

I learned about this scary happening on tonight’s episode of Power Play this fine evening.  Remember another story CTV’s Bob Fife did a year ago,  regarding  Walt Natynczyk, spending 1Million $ smackers using gov’t aircraft as his personal play things, going off to the Caribbean and to hockey games?  Well, boys ‘n’ girls, . . . → Read More: Still Think the Harpercons aren’t Running a Dictatorship?

Lies and Spin, BC Liberal Style (Not on the Radar)

Tweet

Christy Clark (or rather, her lackey Terry Lake) declared yesterday that the BC Government does not support the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline at this time.  Immediately, this news was plastered over all the media.  Environmental Orgs from Dogwood Initiative to Greenpeace trumpeted the news.  The War is Over!  We won!

Those of you in the rest of Canada need to understand that the Liberal “brand” has become synonomous* with conservative values.

Any Bets As To What Happens Next For Stevie?

Tweet

After that twitter storm of #PMHarperMustResign, I found a few interesting tweets. Got me thinking.
