Con Canada and the Madness of Stephen Harper
I know people say I go on and on about the madness that is Stephen Harper's government.
But what else can you say about a government that when called upon to defend its insane decision to gut the long form census, can only summon these kind of witnesses?
A guy who admits he's never even seen one, a farmer who doesn't know what he's talking about.
James Henderson, a farmer who also spoke in favour of scrapping the mandatory long-form census, said the process was not only burdensome, but also costly.
Under further questioning, however, it emerged that it was not the long-form census but the census of agriculture that required the services of accountants to complete. That census remains mandatory.
And a radio talk show host who doesn't know why he's there.
Hey the politicians must be desparate. I have been “invited” to appear at the Industry Committee in Ottawa about the census long form. Why?
Or how about Our Lady of the Rednecks, Candice Hoeppner, who is trying to kill the gun registry and says an RCMP report, the Cons are concealing, won't make any difference.
“I don’t believe any of these reports make any difference whatsoever,” said Ms. Hoeppner. “It’s been years of mismanagement and waste and there’s not going to be a report that changes our minds.”
Because hey she may be an ignorant redneck, and as dumb as a spoon, but she knows better. So there.
And then of course, there is Stephen Harper claiming he is nation-building, even as the country shrinks.
During Mr. Harper’s visit, a huge chunk of ice, estimated to be the size of Bermuda, fell off the country’s largest remaining ice sheet, on Ellesmere Island.
Or claiming he wants to save the Inuit AND the belugas.
When in fact he's planning to drown them all in a sea of oily goodness.
I mean what can you say about that eh?
Except that this beluga must be really disappointed.
Because it was love at first sight. But now he says Harper can forget about rubbing his blow hole, and blow himself instead.
And of course I agree. I'm just sickened by what these Cons are doing to my country. And I'm worried about what that tin pot dictator might do next to try to fool Canadians into thinking he's a nation builder...and almost human.
Because at this point I believe he's capable of ANYTHING.
So if I lived in Saskatchewan I'd be REALLY worried...
Golly. You know I always knew the madness was incremental.
But when is enough ENOUGH?
