Stephen Harper and the End of Canada
So I'm walking to the ferry this evening...and I'm watching the sun go down....and I'm thinking can it really be ONLY two years since Stephen Harper was elected Prime Minister? And Canada's long night began.
Because it seems like FOREVER.
The automaton goes on and on.
But how dark is our country? How FAR has Canada fallen?
Stephen Harper has raped women's rights, disgraced Canada abroad, turned Canada into a nastier meaner place....and our Parliament into a pig pen.
Now him and his morally corrupt government have been caught lying about torture.
"there has not been one single, solitary proven allegation of abuse of detainees ... Rather than producing hogwash and hornswoggle, maybe he can bring some cold, hard facts instead of this torqued rhetoric."
How low can these Con Klowns go?
And as for the Bush/Cheney Stooge-in-Chief he refuses to even say what we are doing with our Afghan prisoners.
You don't think that's because we're sending them to this other Gitmo? Do you?
In a confidential memorandum last summer, the Red Cross said dozens of prisoners had been held incommunicado for weeks or even months in a previously undisclosed warren of isolation cells at Bagram, two American officials said. The Red Cross said the prisoners were kept from its inspectors and sometimes subjected to cruel treatment in violation of the Geneva Conventions, one of the officials said.
As if the case of our Guantanamo Kid wasn't disgusting enough.
Or humiliating enough.
Oh boy. When other governments have to defend our citizens because our government won't ....you know we're in trouble.
Once we were admired around the world as defenders of human rights. Now we're just a rogue nation...of Amerikan stooges.
But hey!! Canadians don't seem to mind. They don't want an election. They're SATISFIED.
“Canadians are pretty satisfied with the way the world is going,” says Darrell Bricker of Ipsos-Reid, a polling company. Too satisfied, it seems, to want to kick the government out.
Yikes. Some people really are EASILY satisfied. In the U.S. young people are full of hope for change. But here we have NONE.
Too bad for Canada. Too bad for me.
But I guess you get the government ....and the country.... you deserve...
