Uh Oh. Gotterdammerung alert. I understand the sinister operatives in the Con war room are starting to get desperate.
The polls are...um...
Prorogation is on the radar of Canadians after all. And after even all those crass photo-ops there's no sign of a Haiti Bump.
“Clearly, the diversion of attention to a pretty well flawless performance on the Haiti crisis to date has not taken the Conservatives out of the penalty box with voters yet,” he told The Globe. “This underscores the depth of public disenchantment.”
Although I see the SoCon sow Jason Kenney is doing his best to suckle it.
By bringing in a planeful of orphans ...not yesterday as their parents in Canada have been demanding...but this weekend, no doubt hoping to steal away the headlines from the prorogation protest.
While denying entry to the families of Haitian Canadians, so these foul Cons can win the racist vote by keeping all those black people out. While posing as HUMANITARIANS.
Oh boy. Are these Reform Harperites UGLY or what?
But then that's why we fight them eh?
Which reminds me... I heard that the founder of the Facebook group is asking people not to attack Stephen Harper, and concentrate on reforming Parliament.
Now I understand why he's saying that. He wants to build a non-partisan coalition of progressives and decent Conservatives. And good for him, that's a noble goal.
But of course I can't go along with that...unless my lips were sealed with krazy glue. Or my tongue was cut out.
However, I do promise not to be too rowdy, or beat my drum too loudly, and to tell my friends that if they plan on making any signs to make sure they're not too rude... and spelt rite.
Because we don't want to look too young and ignorant eh? Wot?
But seriously here's the thing. I do support this awesome Facebook movement all the way. I think it's BRILLIANT. I do want to see our Parliament get back to work. And reformed so it's a better place, and a more dignified House of Democracy.
But right now. More than ANYTHING.
I want my country back....
Oh well. You know it doesn't really matter why people attend this Saturday's rallies.
On that day we'll all just be ordinary Canadians standing up for a better Canada.
The important thing is to bring your friends, and your signs, your idealism, and your enthusiasm. Just BE THERE.
Because although it's a serious issue. It's also a Democracy Party.
And we're going to have FUN !!!!
