Dr George Tiller and the Christian Taliban

I just heard about the murder of the heroic abortion provider Dr George Tiller.

I'm too angry to write about how I really feel. So I'll leave it up to JJ.

Or Dave at the Galloping Beaver.

And all I ask anyone reading this post is to read this story.

I can take an anxious woman, who is in the biggest trouble she has ever experiences in her life, and by performing a five-minute operation, in comfort and dignity, I can give her back her life.

Then watch the first minute of this video.

As horrible as it is....

Then tell me who are the heroes, and who are the TERRORISTS?

Some crazed loser may have pulled the trigger, but the Christian Taliban of the anti-choice movement set him up to it with their deranged, violent rhetoric. So they must share the blame.

And that's all I can say without losing it.

Except to say that George Tiller was a good doctor, a brave man, a quiet champion of women's rights, and my hero FOREVER. As are all the other heroic abortion providers.

The anti-choice movement is riddled with dangerous terrorists....and their supporters.

And they must be CRUSHED...

The Scary Roots of Stephen Harper

I guess I should have known. I thought the madness came from outer space.

But actually it came from Yorkshire.

The original Canadian Harper - born in a small village in Yorkshire in 1730 - immigrated to Nova Scotia in 1774 and moved into a house near Fort Cumberland, only to have the home burned to the ground two years later by rebels. He spent years taking revenge in the courts and slowly rising through the political system.

He had risen to the post of justice of the peace by the time a judicial inquiry found him guilty of, as one historian put it, "violent and oppressive measures" - vindictive to a point beyond all reason.

And, of course, now it's too late....

Golly. Isn't that SPOOKY?

We knew he was a political thug, and a vindictive bastard.

But we never realized it isn't his fault...he can't help himself.

Holy Yorkshire pudding. May the Monkey God help us.

The ghost of Christopher Harper has come back to haunt us...

The Day the Chimp Came to Town

When I heard that George Bush was in town I couldn't wait to let him know how much I love and admire him.

And that while he might get a standing ovation from some Canadians.

And a blow job from the Blue Lemon.

If only all these wastes of skin would always stay home the city and the world would be much better.

All the nasty little chimp can expect from me and my friends is a one-finger salute. And a demand that he be ARRESTED.

Because not only is he an idiot, a torturer, a mass murderer, and a war criminal.

He's also a dangerous Christianist nutbar.

Stranger still are new accounts emerging from France describing how former president Jacques Chirac was utterly baffled by a 2003 telephone conversation in which Bush reportedly invoked fanatical Old Testament prophecy – including the Earth-ending battle with forces of evil, Gog and Magog – in his arguments to enlist France in the Coalition of the Willing.

"This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people's enemies before a New Age begins," Bush said to Chirac...

Chirac, in a new book by French journalist Jean-Claude Maurice, is quoted as confirming the surreal conversation, saying he was stupefied by Bush's reference to biblical prophecy and "wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs."

So know we know why all those people died. And how lucky we are to have survived him.

Or have we?

Did you know the biggest Canadian "expert" on the Battle of Gog and Magog is the Christianist bloater Charles McVety? Who lectures about that gibberish all the time.

Did you know that he was Finance Minister Jimbo Flaherty's SPECIAL guest the day he brought down his first budget? And that the PMO is crawling with sinister religious nutbars who believe that the end of the world is coming. And that's a GOOD thing.

Including Stephen Harper.

Yup. The Bush legacy lives on in the heart of the ReformCon government....and of course in the bitter core of the Blue Lemon. That waste of lemon peel.

How can we be sure that these Christianist Cons are thinking about the end of the recession, and not the end of the world?

Defeat them, SQUEEZE them, finish them off.

Before they END our country....

Proposition 8 and My Big Gay Shrug

I see that just days after their latest Proposition 8 victory in California, the Christianist bigots at the National Organization for Marriage have released another disgusting video.

Accusing gay people of threatening children.

Which is not only disgusting and evil, it's also ABSURD.

Because why would gay people threaten the young like these hatemongers do? When the kids are on our side.

Ask them, in your most panicky, alarmist, Mormonified voice: Aren't they horrified at the very idea? Aren't they shocked at the very thought of two people in love having their union officially recognized and validated by the state?

Please note the response. Please observe how the kids merely look at you as though you're more than a little bit deranged and prehistoric, so out of touch you might as well be Dick Cheney talking up the diesel-powered rectal thermometers he so loved back in World War I.

Here is what it tells you: Gay marriage is a foregone conclusion. It's a done deal. It's just a matter of time. For the next generation in particular, equal rights for gays is not even a question or a serious issue, much less a sinful hysterical conundrum that can only be answered by terrified Mormons and confused old people and inane referendums funded by same. It's just obvious, inevitable, a given.

Which is just what I say all the time eh? The future will be brighter.

In the meantime I hear the Christianist bigots had a victory rally.

And it was a DISASTER....

Yeah how WOULD you feel?

I can tell you that right now this lover boy feels he's lucky he's made it to Friday. Because I have to admit I've been feeling a bit discouraged.

But I've been practicing my big gay shrug.

And I'm pretty confident the future weekend belongs to us...

Have a great one everybody !!

The Ballad of Jimbo Flaherty: The Video

When I think of Jim Flaherty I can't forget how he treated the homeless when he was the brutish Con Mike Harris' Minister of Labour Unemployment/Misery.

And how he wanted to jail them.

So it doesn't surprise me that he's killing our economy.

And still claiming that others were as dumb as he was.

"None of these economists, I can tell you, predicted this recession. And none of these economists predicted the depth of this recession.

Even though all the others at least knew a recession was coming...while he was still predicting SURPLUSES.

But then of course the wretched little Con gnome is also a victim... of his own greed and stupidity.

As I try to point out in this video.

You know in addition to being an absolute idiot little Jimbo is also a rabid theocon. Which makes me wonder who he's taking instructions from these days.

The ghost of Mike Harris, the crazed Stephen Harper, the Wheel of Fortune....or his Lord?

Lordy. Anyone need a used garden gnome?

Now more than EVER.

Throw the bums out....

Proposition 8: The Anger and the Beauty

I didn't think they were going to win.

I believe this battle will be won at the ballot box, when attitudes change. And politicians stop being cowards.

But it still hurts me to see how disappointed my brothers and sisters are in California tonight.

And like every gay person in the world tonight it also makes me angry.

On the other hand I know we're going to win in the end. And I'm so proud of the way the Prop Hate fighters have battled the bigots. They didn't have the money the homophobes had.

But still they fought back so proud, so strong, so gentle...

And still are.

Sometimes I wish we weren't so gentle.

If I was loose in the streets of California tonight I probably would have got into trouble.

But I wouldn't ask my brothers and sisters in California to change a thing. Because their struggle for equality and respect is as beautiful as they are. And that's why they are going to WIN.

On the other hand that doesn't mean I won't be wearing this t-shirt tonight....

In solidarity eh?

Oh more thing. Although I'm really angry, and scarily butch, and REALLY ready to rumble.

May the Gay God help me.

I still LOVE this sappy video...

Little Jimbo and the Cons from Outer Space

Well I suppose it was inevitable.

Little Jimbo didn't see it coming. He doesn't know what he's doing. He once worked for Mike Harris the brutish Con Premier who left Ontario a mean and nasty ruin.

So he won't do anything to help the growing army of the unemployed.

What will it take for him to grow a heart.....or a BRAIN?

Gosh. You'd think the nasty little Con came from outer space....

You know...the cruel and incompetent Cons are always bad news for the kind of beautiful Canada we want to build.

But in a time of recession they're DANGEROUS...

Hubble's Glory and My New Space Heroes

The word hero is so misused these days it has practically lost its meaning. But my hall of real heroes now includes the crew of the shuttle Atlantis.

Who were finally able to come home yesterday.

Because they were operating at a higher altitude, they had one chance is 229 of being hit by some of the space junk that rings the planet.

They had to work under impossible conditions.

Their landing was delayed for three days until they were practically out of food and fuel.

And they did it all just so an aging telescope could bring us more amazing pictures like this one.

And these.

To remind us of our place in the universe. How small we are. How precious is our little planet.

And how nothing is more important than saving it....from ourselves.

Yup. To the crew of the shuttle Atlantis....

Please take another bow.


Because that was EXCELLENT...

Harper, Quebec, and a Lesson for English Canada

Well I see a new poll has confirmed what everyone in Quebec already knew, the Harper Conservatives are getting their asses kicked.

The Léger poll indicates that the Harper government's support in Quebec remains at only 13 per cent, which could possibly wipe out most of its 10 seats in the province were an election held today.

"This is catastrophic for the Conservatives," said Jean-Marc Léger, president of Léger Marketing. "Poll after poll shows they are losing ground. It will be a tough time for them."

And all over English Canada pundits and bloggers are trying to figure out soothsayers groping goat guts.

I think Chantal Hebert gets pretty close to figuring out the real reason.

If there is a common thread to the Conservative predicament in Quebec, it is the pervading sense that Harper's political philosophy runs against the grain of the province.

Pratte alluded to the phenomenon on his blog, noting when Quebecers look at Harper these days, it seems all they see is his ideology.

But as someone who has one foot in French Quebec and the other in English Canada, I think it's even simpler than that.

I believe that the real reason Quebecers hate Stephen Harper's Cons so much is because they consider him "mesquin" or MEAN. He has offended their strong sense of Quebec/Canadian values for a whole bunch of reasons.

From his plan to jail children and his failure to rescue Omar Khadr, to his meanspirited cuts to the arts and the way he tried to turn English Canada against the province during the Coalition Crisis.

And because they have looked into his cold, cruel, dead eyes.

And they don't like what they see...


And those ridiculous attack ads will only reinforce why they hate him so much.

Which explains why many of them are switching over to the Liberals. Not necessarily because they like Michael Ignatieff, but because they know he is the only political leader who can get rid of this creepy monster. And they want that more than they want ANYTHING.

Meanwhile in English Canada....where feelings are sometimes confused with weakness, and meanness is often mistaken for strength... we get this result.

And I can't help feel feeling sometimes that our side just doesn't get it.

Cold arguments may damage the Cons, if the political ignorance of the population, and the Big Lie doesn't blunt their impact.

But gut feeling will KILL them. Especially in a time of recession.

Which is why I've been making these videos...

Because the day more English Canadians have the same gut feeling Quebecers have for Stephen Harper and his cruel and creepy Cons.....will be the day the nightmare finally ends.

Which I guess is the lesson eh?

From the Quebec part of moi to the English Canadian part of me. It's time to get in touch with our FEELINGS people. Oooh la la.

And then CRUSH these nasty Cons...


P.S. Sorry about repeating the video, but I needed it to make the point. I'm happy to report though I'm working on a new one....Bully Harper and Little Jimbo. It's a tragicomedy of errors idiots, a cross between Martian Invasion and The Omen. So you won't want to miss it eh?

The Sad Story of the Bloater and the Bells

My favourite moment of Brian Mulroney's appearance before the Oliphant Inquiry was when The Bloater launched into the familiar story of how he was a poor carpenter's electrician's son from Baie Comeau etc etc...

And Richard Wolson, the inquiry's Perry Mason, shot back "Oh yeah I'm from North Winnipeg."

Which used to make Baie Comeau look like Beverly Hills.

The look on Mulroney's face? PRICELESS.

But then, of course, that's how all it started eh?

When the rich Americans tied up their luxury yachts in Baie Comeau, the other poor Quebec boys dived for quarters. But Brian sang for them. Just like he sang for Ronald Reagan. Because he wanted to be one of them so much.

And even this Mulroney apologist knows where that led.

Mulroney has his faults, like all of us. He is loyal to his friends who often got him into trouble. He enjoys friends who are rich which he is not. It is difficult to compete with them on a prime minister’s pension.

Oh well. He really should have dived for quarters like the other boys because then he wouldn't have loved rich people so much.

Now I only have only two questions before I try to drive this sad spectacle out of my mind.

Will it hurt the Con brand as much as this guy says it will?

Mulroney's misbehaviour has cost taxpayers millions of dollars for the inquiry into the matter and in legal fees for Mulroney, which we also pay. Mulroney was out of office, just, when he started taking envelopes of cash, but it was still wrong. This is what people in the business world refer to as damage to the brand.

Oh goody.

And when The Bloater said before the inquiry began that he was going to turn up with "BELLS ON."

Did he mean these ?

I think they're the banks....or Bavarian.

Clankety Clank. The old Con Bloater hobbles off stage right.

The song is finally over...

Telling the Bully Harper Where to Get Off

OMG. I can't believe it. A political leader in this country has finally told the foul bully Stephen Harper where to get off.

"If you mess with me, I will mess with you until I'm done..."

Yes. Yes. Yes. Now them are the fighting words I've been waiting FOREVER to hear.

You know creepy bullies like Harper believe that those who stand for a kinder, gentler more beautiful Canada are WEAK. They believe decency itself is a sign of weakness.

When of course it is the very measure of STRENGTH. And the only thing that counts.

Stephen Harper's ugly brand of bully politics has debased this country and made it a mean, cruel and nasty place.

But when you confront the bullies like Ignatieff did last night, they usually turn and run.... like the COWARDS they are.

Last time Harper's bluff was called he ran to the Governor General and hid under her gown.

Where will he run to now?

Whose gown will he hide under?

And won't Great Ugly Leader look pretty in blue?

Oh boy. Stephen Harper NOT a Canadian leader. Just a nasty bully and a cowardly nerd.

The decent people of this country are finally saying enough is enough. Just like the great Rad Can anchor Bernard Derome just did.

By accusing Harper of dismembering the CBC for "ideological reasons."

The message couldn't be clearer. We want our beautiful country back. It's time to put our petty political differences aside.

And give the bully the BOOT.....

Harper's Ugly Canada and my New Video

I'm always wondering where I'm going. Now I'm wondering where my beautiful country is going. And whether we're going to the same place.

A friend just told me that Stephen Harper and his Conservatives could stay in power for another YEAR. Because the left is divided. And a lot of MPs need the extra time to qualify for their pensions.

And that saddens me because I honestly believe that every day these horrible Cons are in power, MY Canada dies a little bit more.

Because they have made Canada an ugly mean place, with their foul and alien attack politics of personal destruction. And because Stephen Harper is an authoritarian bully with a CRUEL streak that makes him unfit to govern.

Which is why I made a new video.

To remind everyone who we're dealing with....

You know I'm not really interested in the game of politics. I never though I'd have to worry about that in Canada eh?

I don't belong to any party. Although I do support all the progressive parties and wish they were UNITED.

I wish I could spend more time writing about other dreamier things. But not until Stephen Harper and his Cons are driven from office.

Because I want my decent, strong but gentle, beautiful, and proud Canada back.

And the sooner the BETTER....

When Religion Screws Your Mind

Yesterday I wrote about the terrible abuse of children by the Catholic Church in Ireland.

Today the fallout continued.

Victims of sexual abuse and neglect in Catholic-run schools and orphanages in Ireland swamped counseling services on Thursday after the publication of the harrowing findings of a nine-year investigation.

Details of ritual humiliation, torture and slave labor were splashed across Ireland's newspapers. The Irish Times described the report as "the map of an Irish hell" while the tabloid Irish Daily Mirror's front page simply read "You evil monsters."

And it's all so horrible. Especially this part:

A lawsuit by the Christian Brothers led the commission to drop its original intention to name the abusers and no one will be prosecuted as a result.

But of course the religious abuse of children takes many forms.

Sometimes they screw your body...or drive gay kids to suicide. And sometimes they just screw your MIND.

Or eat it....

Oh. My. Donut. As I've said so many times before, ALL religion is a form of mental illness

If adults want to delude themselves that's OK. But leave the children alone.

Now gimme me a bloody Boston cream pie Jebesus !!!!!! Or pay for it with your money.

Yeah yeah...I know they're not the HOLEY kind.

But I'm really HUNGRY !!!!!!!!!

Stephen Harper and the Big Torpedo

Of all the bad reviews of Stephen Harper's pathetic anti-Ignatieff ads, I think I like this one the BEST.

In the film The Hunt for Red October, the final showdown involves a torpedo fired by an enemy sub that -- through skilful piloting by the good guys -- ultimately locks onto and destroys the vessel that launched it.

Before they armed the warheads and hit the "Fire" button on their latest attack ads, Stephen Harper's Tories might have been wise to sit through a special screening.

But of course they didn't. So the big torpedo pulled a u-turn and flew up Great Das Leader's gaping booty. KABOOM !!!

Instead of fixing a negative, disparaging storyline to the new Liberal leader, the Tories may succeed only in reinforcing a damaging narrative about themselves -- as angry, slightly mean-spirited, defensive folks who believe the way to voters' hearts is to call other people names.

OMG. I mean DIVE DIVE !!!! It doesn't get any better than this. Somebody in the stinky PMO sardine can is going to pay for impaling Captain Nasty on his own petard , torpedo , attack ad.

Because it's cost the Cons an early election.

It almost certainly means the ads have backfired. And they're running like COWARDS.

Which reminds me.... the other night I took aim at Stephen Taylor for trying to defend the creepy cowardly Con ad campaign.

And for running a tacky video of Keyboard Cat playing out Ruby Dhalla.

When EVERYONE knows that the Kat plays for our side.....

Now all I can think of is BAD STUFF HAPPENS.

Golly. I wonder if that's what Stephen Taylor is going to say when Great Very Angry Leader calls him into his office? Or will he blame Steve Janke?

Because Wanky thinks they' BRILLIANT. Uh Oh. Bend over Great Leader.If you thought the torpedo was painful here comes a heat-seeking missile !!!!

Or another useful idiot. Muahahahaha.

Oh boy.These nasty sleazy Bush/Cheney HarperCons are being played ...or exploded... out of history.


And they don't even know it....

Catholic Child Abuse Scandal hits Ireland

For years the Catholic Church in Ireland has held that country in an icy grip.

Gay people have been treated like second class citizens. And women even worse.

Ireland’s abortion laws are among the most restrictive in Europe – amongst the most restrictive of all developed nations. Under Irish law a woman can risk life imprisonment for pursuing an elective abortion within the State, unless the pregnancy risks the mother’s life, or she is suicidal as a result of it.

So why am I not surprised by this horror?

The five-volume study concluded that church officials encouraged ritual beatings and consistently shielded their orders' paedophiles from arrest amid a "culture of self-serving secrecy".

It also found that government inspectors failed to stop the chronic beatings, rapes and humiliation.

Just sickened. The poor little children.

Punish every last one of these cruel bully monsters. And every government inspector who looked the other way.

Don't let them get away with it.

Make abortion legal TOMORROW.

Keep these religious perverts away from kids....

Dr Strangelove and the Human Rights Commission

Imagine if the love of your life was dying in a hospital bed. But you weren't allowed to say goodbye. So your lover died alone wondering where you were.

Even though you were just outside the room.

How would you feel for the rest of your life?

Which is why this story haunts me.

“I have this deep sense of failure for not being at Lisa’s bedside when she died,” Ms. Langbehn said. “How I get over that I don’t know, or if I ever do.”

Of course that could never happen to me. Because NOBODY would ever be able to stop Sébastien. And I'd drive a bulldozer through a wall to get to him.

But then I wouldn't have to because in Canada we have a Human Rights Commission that keeps bigots from firing people, or not renting apartments to them, or discriminating in other ways just because of who they are.

And helps keep Canada a civilized country, and women and minorities safe from the haters.

Which is why I was not surprised to see the uber neocon Tom Flanagan calling for it to be scrapped.

...we should remember that the existence of the commissions is itself an abuse. They have little to do with genuine human rights such as freedom of speech and worship, security of the person and ownership of property. They are specialized agencies to enforce anti-discrimination legislation, and issues of prejudice and discrimination are far too complex to be resolved by human-rights sloganeering.

But then he would.

Because this ridiculous Calgary School Strangelove has been trying to turn Canada into a jungle ever since he arrived in Canada from the United States.

And even though when he sneezes, Stephen Harper FARTS, it ain't gonna happen.

Because this is Canada eh? Not Amerika.

Although I'm sure that after this pathetic performance Flanagan WILL get a chance to dip his lips in paint and plant a big kiss on Ezra Levant's Butt of Fame. Because goodness gracious everybody's BIG enough for all of them.

As for me ....I'd just like to dedicate this song to Strangelove and all the other right-wing weirdos and dinosaurs who would destroy the Human Rights Commission and turn our beautiful country into a racist, sexist,homophobic jungle.

Call it my salute ...or OUR salute. From the Big Gay Collab.

This time all the way from Paris...

Because sometimes you can argue with the k....k....k....KRAZY doctors and dinosaurs.

Sometimes you need a bulldozer.

And sometimes why BOTHER?

Ethan McNamee The Youngest Gay Activist

The other day I wrote a post about how the Christianist bigots were using children to attack gay marriage.

And I wondered how you could counter that kind of bigotry.

Well it turns out I needn't have worried.

Because nine-year-old Ethan McNamee took care of that.

Of course the Christianists are now in a foaming frenzy screaming "manipulation manipulation !!!!"

The filthy hypocrites.

But after screening the video of his little rally I think he spoke from his heart. So all I've got to say is....OMG I'm feeling so OLD !!!

Ethan is a HERO.

And the kids are alright....

The HarperCon War Room Flames Out

Uh oh. Call the fire brigade or the insane asylum. It looks as if the Con war room is in full meltdown mode.

Their anti-Ignatieff ads are steaming fresh ....out of the toilet. And already the reviews are BRUTAL

And once Stephen Harper realizes how much damage they're doing to the Cons...and how people are laughing at him instead of Ignatieff. Or just shaking their heads in disgust.

He'll be blowing smoke out of his enormous ass...and bellowing "Bring me the head of Stephen Taylor."

Because by the desperate way Taylor defends the indefensible, you'd think he was personally responsible for the worst Con ad campaign since they made fun of Chretien's face.

He just doesn't get it. But then these frat boy war room Cons never do. Because they're born UGLY. It's in their Bush Con genes.

Just checkout these Young Republicans....picketing a Democratic convention during the darkest days of the AIDS epidemic.

And remember that these Harper/Rove attack Cons are cut from the same cloth. They use the same kind of cruel twisted try to destroy rather than defeat their opponents. Like they destroyed the gentle Stephane Dion because he was too decent to fight back against their ugly ads of personal destruction.

So what are we progressive bloggers going to do? Let them get away with it again? Or give the desperate Cons a taste of their own foul medicine?

The Harper Conservatives are far better in the attack-dog game than the Liberals. In the House of Commons, they never miss an opportunity to pointedly remind the Grits of their own record whenever a criticism is raised.

The Liberals let golden opportunities pass. Every day, they could be painting Mr. Harper as the Prime Minister who shut down Parliament and ran off, tail between his legs, to the Governor-General to beg for survival. They never do.

Actually I can think of many even WORSE things to say about Stephen Harper...because he's such a weird freak. And to prove it I'm working on a new video.

But until it arrives later this week, this gentler version will have to do....

Although I also like this brand new one from A Creative Revolution.

Because mocking him like he mocked Dion feels so damn GOOD. And if attack ads work, as Stephen Taylor insists they do. Well that's a BONUS eh?

Yup. I do believe the Progressive YouTube Brigade is on the march. And these cowardly un-Canadian bully Cons are going to regret playing dirty.

More than they could ever IMAGINE...

Homophobia and a Flag for Michael Causer

Today people in fifty countries marked International Day Against Homophobia.

Which is pretty amazing for an event that began six years ago in Montreal.

And commemorates the day in 1990 when the World Health Organization stopped classifying homosexuality as a mental illness.

There were all kinds of events like this Pink Day in Singapore.

The first gay outdoor event EVER in that conservative country.

And this lie-down in Hong Kong...

But the event that most moved me was the one in Liverpool, England. Where for the first time ever, the rainbow flag of freedom flew over City Hall....and over all the police stations in the Merseyside.

To mark Anti-Homophobia Day and remember Michael Causer.

The kid I wrote about here.

But even that flag raising, as moving as it was, didn't lift my spirits as much as this poll.

When children were asked whether they thought being gay was normal, 71 per cent said yes, and 86 per cent said it's like any other sexual orientation.

"In a context in which may of these parents come from countries where homosexuality is oppressed, we have to celebrate the fact that their children find distance from those attitudes and adopt values of their new country."

Which says something really good about those immigrant kids ....and our precious Canadian values.

Yup.The present may be bleak.

So many of my brothers and sisters are brutally oppressed. Bullying and bigotry are still such a huge problem. And instead of being allowed to live our lives in peace we must fight FOREVER.

But they flew the flag for Michael today. Isn't that awesome?

And the future WILL be better...

Being Gay and the Cacophony of Hate

One thing about being gay that no straight person can understand, is how wherever you go you can't get away from the drumbeat of oppression.

Like try to ignore what happened to my brave brothers and sisters in Moscow today.

When it makes me so angry.

Or pretend that I didn't hear about how the Republicans are planning to try to turn gay marriage into a more effective weapon.

Republicans can reach a broader base by recasting gay marriage as an issue that could dent pocketbooks as small businesses spend more on health care and other benefits, GOP Chairman Michael Steele said Saturday.

When I did and it makes me want to VOMIT.

Or how I can't block out the hideous sight of Christianist bigots using innocent children against us....

It all adds up to a cacophony of hate that you can't escape.

No matter where you go.

Which is what I think is what vimeo artist Matthew Brown is trying to convey in this video.

Does he succeed? I'm not sure.

But I'm sure proud of my brothers and sisters, for living, loving, and fighting FOREVER.

In a world as bigoted as this one....

The Cons and the Big Black Squirrel

If I was a Stephen Harper Conservative I'd be very very afraid. The Big Black Squirrel is giving them the evil hungry eye.

As they become ever more desperate. And even more NUTTY.

This week, Conservatives fought back.

Against whom I wonder? Surely not the GritGirl? Who hasn't posted a video in more than a MONTH.

And what are we to make of this?

Good week for Conservatives, don’t you think?

No Stephen. I don't. And neither do SOOOOOO many others.

In fact the only way the week could have been WORSE, is if the entire Con caucus had been busted in a hotel room.....handing out envelopes of cash to underage hookers..... as part of their stimulus plan.

Which of course brings me to Taylor's next line:

I hear that Brian Mulroney did pretty well too!

OMG. When does a critical disconnect from reality become fullblown insanity? Somebody please tell Stephen that in the real opposed to the fantasy one he lives in... it's three strikes and you're OUT.

Still yearning for affection like an annoying suitor who cannot accept rejection, he will not let Canadians forget what it was about him that they so disliked when he left politics 16 years ago...

But it gets worse. After a cheap joke carefully designed to hurt both Dhalla and no doubt carefully crafted by the crass political thugs in the PMO...we get this:


That's a rimshot? Or did he mean a rim JOB? And if so whose doing the rimming? Not Jason Kenney I hope. We wouldn't want another senior Con caught with his tongue in the cookie jar. Would we?

When the media pack got there, they found out that two officials, let's call them Kory Teneycke and Dimitri Soudas (as CanWest did), had taken a leave from their jobs. Just a one-day leave, so they could be Conservative partisans and talk to reporters about the ads they were releasing.

Oh boy. Are these Cons sleazy and DESPERATE? And how could Stephen Taylor get EVERYTHING wrong in one post? By suggesting that keyboard cat is a Con.

When everyone knows he's on OUR side. The Conservatives are the ones played out.

And the only animal act these pathetic Con pitbulls can expect at THEIR farewell... is John Baird in heat ... fighting off the rest of the caucus for one last chance to hump Great Loser Leader's leg.

And of course....bien sur.

Straight from Medellin....with envelopes full of cash.

My friend the Colombian chihuaha...

Bye Bye Cons.

They can yap and snap all they like. Or bite themselves in the ass.

But the party is almost over.....

The Bully Harper and my First Attack Ad

There are a lot of reasons to hate Stephen Harper. His failed economic policies that would turn Canada into a neocon jungle. His oil pimp policies that would torch the planet. Or just the fact he hates women so much.

But the main reason I despise him with every bone in my body is that he's such a monstrous, cowardly BULLY. A man who says he likes to see fear in the eyes of others.

A porky political thug who practices the politics of personal destruction with his hideous attack ads. Like the ones that destroyed the career of the gentle Stephane Dion.

So now that he's off to the pigsty again....I thought I'd give him a taste of his own medicine. Just like I did to the bullies at school.

By launching my first attack ad....

OK OK I know I'm no GritGirl.

But the point is if I can do it ANYONE can. So c'mon eh?

If the monster wants to play the politics of personal destruction game....let our leaders stick to the high road.

While the Progressive Alliance Rebel YouTube fleet closes in on the bully Death , Darth Harper Star.

And really lets him have it......

The Tamil Protests and the Dead Kid

(click pic to enlarge)

Sometimes I'm glad to be able to get away from Toronto, because this week all anybody seems to be talking about is how the city has been taken over by the Tamils.

And it's driving me nuts. I've never heard such an avalanche of outrage over such a small peaceful protest. Nobody was hurt, a few drivers were delayed in traffic. In a city that can be as boring as batshit, it was the best show in years.

And in all the overheated ugly talk about these brown buggers , Tamil terrorists ungrateful immigrants, hardly anyone remembered that the Gardner Expressway had been blocked before by some dangerous looking white radicals.

So what's the problem eh? Not racism I hope.

And besides if people want to be outraged they should save it for this story.

That was buried by the story about the traffic tie-ups.

Because it's so sad. Witnesses said the kid was crying as his short life slipped away from him.

And unlike the Tamil protests that are just an inconvenience, and as far as I'm concerned a very small price to pay for the pleasure of living in a vibrant multicultural city.

What's happening to some mostly black kids in some neighbourhoods is a tragedy.

And a REAL problem...

Stop the bullets. Kill the gun.

Support our Tamil neighbours. Understand their pain and desperation.

Stop the racist nonsense.

Save our black children....

Religious Bigot James Dobson Surrenders

OMG. Start ringing the bells. The raving wingnut James Dobson has surrendered.

I want to tell you up front that we're not going to ask you to do anything, to make a phone call or to write a letter or anything.

There is nothing you can do at this time about what is taking place because there is simply no limit to what the left can do at this time. Anything they want, they get and so we can't stop them.

Golly. I liked that last paragraph so much...and read it sooooo many times. If only it was true. But I guess the recession finally caught up with them.

Although I notice that Dobson doesn't say don't write cheques, or don't sell your house before you lose it....and send half the money to me. And that he does invoke the mighty fundraising power of prayer.

And so what you can do is pray, pray for this great nation... As I see it, there is no other answer. There's no other answer, short term.

Which scares me almost as much as it does PZ Myers.

Oh, no…wait. They're going to start praying? Don't do that! When they've got the power of their almighty god behind them, they'll be unstoppable!

My reaction?

Thank God I don't believe in God.

If the recession kills off these Christianist bigots it'll almost be worth it.

And of course if PZ Myers, my Atheist Messiah, says GLOAT.

I say thanks a lot eh?

I think I will.....
