Stephen Harper's Hooker Budget















I've got to hand it to Stephen Harper. He really will do anything to seduce Canadians into giving him a majority. Just like a desperate hooker will...when she runs out of crack.

But then what can you say about a country where the neocons act like big spending Liberals? The Liberals act like tax cutting neocons.

The NDP has to pretend it really wanted the government to fall. The Bloc has to appear satisfied and disappointed at the same time.

While Jean Charest uses the fiscal balancing dough to offer Quebecers a tax cut.... like the one I'm NOT going to get.

Answer: not much. What a fucking mess. Spring can't come soon enough.

But then the whole thing is a fraud.

".....the Budget continues a schedule of deep corporate tax cuts combined with subsidies for the oil sands. Its basic direction, like previous Liberal and Conservative federal budgets, is to reduce the size of government and hence its capacity to serve working people. An ever smaller share of Canada’s economic resources will be devoted to making important public investments and providing crucial services to individuals, families, and communities..."

It's just a poison pill disguised as a candy. A plan to buy votes in corporate Canada, Toronto's suburbs, and of course Quebec.

And the thing that worries me the most...is that it just might work. Canadians might let themselves be seduced by Stephen Harper into giving him the majority he so desperately craves. Only to regret it the morning after.

If you want to know how that might feel, all you have to do is check out this ad from the British Labour Party warning people about the dangers of having a fling with a Conservative...

As I see it....the message is clear. If you let yourself be fooled into having a one-night stand with a neo-con fanatic who is pretending to be a Liberal...and comes from the uber right-wing province of Alberta.

Don't be surprised if you wake up the next morning...

With a really bad case of the clap......

  1. it is always sad when you find such a nice educated person, that could potentially be a great friend, be a homophobic conservative bigot.

  4. Harper's tactics are working. I hear people singing his praises who once winced at the word conservative. This from an area that votes in absolute morons as MP's.
