OMG. I was watching the Evian Solomon show today, and there was Julie Fantino making a complete idiot out of himself. By dismissing this CARP poll.
62% say it is NOT a budget which benefits older Canadians 58% say they do NOT agree with the budget overall 54% say the Opposition Parties should vote against the Budget.
Claiming that he had other numbers... and that most seniors don't use computers anyway. Huh?
Only to have someone from CARP e-mail the show, and inform Fantino that they will make sure ALL their members hear about that one.
And since the Cons are targeting seniors as part of their Plan for Total Domination.
I'm sure Stephen Harper will hear about that too, and Julie will be forced to crawl six hundred and sixty six times around Great Angry Leader's desk...backwards. While Harper rides him like a burro.
How tragic eh? Once he was a cop... I mean a TOP. Now he's a bottom. With a persecution complex. Mama Mia.
Seriously though...I'm not surprised seniors weren't fooled by this budget. They know that an extra $1.50 a day won't help anyone escape from poverty, hunger, or indignity.

Even a cupcake can seem ENORMOUS...
And for a hungry senior I suppose it's better than nothing eh?
Oh boy. What can I say about these Cons that I haven't said before. Except that it takes a very evil ideology to spend BILLIONS on fancy jet planes, and almost nothing on poor children and seniors.
And you have to be really cruel bastards to do something like this.
Industry Minister Tony Clement has asked his Conservative colleagues in the Senate to vote against an NDP bill that would allow generic companies to copy brand-name drugs and sell them at cut rates to the world’s poorest countries.
You know, I was poking around the net looking for some video I could ...um... borrow... to make my low budget attack ads. When I came across a spooky clip that sent an icy chill down my spine.
Because it made me imagine what it would be like if Stephen Harper and his totalitarian Cons ever got a majority.
And we were forced to go on living in their moral darkness.
I see that there are still a few progressives out there who think an election is a bad idea.
But not me eh?
I can feel the darkness, and I'm
