Stephen Harper's House of Horrors
I missed the swearing in of Stephen Harper's new cabinet.
But I hear it was a real freak show.
John Baird is the new Minister of Foreign Affairs...
So he can blow his vuvuzela at the United Nations, and humiliate Canada further.
And Bev Oda is staying where she is, so she can keep whacking women's groups for the boys in the Con mob...
And because she knows too much, so Harper doesn't dare fire her. Nobody does.
But of course the real horror show, the most sordid spectacle, was the sight of three Con deadbeats getting appointed to the Senate.
Including one who didn't want the job.
You can smell the stench of corruption all the way to Alberta or Alabama.
But you know what the most depressing sight was? The sight of the progressive blogosphere screaming in outrage. As if we didn't know that the Harper Regime is rotten to the core.
As if we should be surprised.
Did you really think things were going to be any different, after these clowns got a majority? Did you really think they would take it as anything other than a licence to do whatever shit they wanted?
Personally, I can't imagine anything worse than spending the next five years screaming helplessly at every monstrous move the tyrant makes. Because there are going to be a lot of them.
And because at this point I'm only really interested in how we can eventually defeat him.
So yes I will keep attacking him like everybody else. Silence in a time of tyranny is complicity and moral death. But I'm also looking for something new and different to help me survive the next five years.
I don't think we need to prove that Stephen Harper is a rotten human being and a lousy leader. I think we need to prove that we can work together to drive him and his evil regime from power.
So that's what I'm going to try to do eh? Encourage new ideas, make videos about the Canada we lost, and how we can get it back. Join in street protests. Beat my drum.
Or just find myself a little seed in the rubble of what was once Canada.
Protect it from its enemies.
And hopefully watch it grow...
