Rob Ford and the Big Lie
Well at least we know one thing eh? When Rob Ford called 911 because he felt threatened by the comedian Marg Delahunty. And then used the F-word when talking to a dispatcher, because police didn't come quickly enough.
It wasn't because they didn't know where he lived.
According to numerous police and emergency service sources, 911 calls to the mayor’s Edenbridge Dr. home are a reality for the South Etobicoke division. Exactly how many calls have been made is unknown.
Now I don't give a damn what goes on in the Ford household. In fact I'd rather not think about it.
But considering that he used the same dirty trickster whose organization went after Irwin Cotler, to help him get elected. Considering that he has shown himself to be a crass homophobe in a city full of gay people.
Considering that he is raising transit fares starting Sunday, AND reducing service. While riding to work in a van, and giving ordinary citizens the finger.
Considering that he managed to blow $60 million cancelling a vehicle registration tax. And at least another $60 million cancelling a light rail transit plan that had been years in the making.
But couldn't find about one million dollars to save three homeless shelters, including one for women.
So the number of soiled mattresses in this waterfront park just keeps going up...
As does the chance that some poor homeless person will freeze to death this winter, while the millionaire mayor sleeps in his warm and comfy bed.
Considering that like his good buddy Stephen Harper he's a hideous bully, and just about everything he says is a Big Lie.
From service cuts to layoffs of city workers to higher user fees for city services, every one of Ford’s election promises has been broken. Those on which he’s delivered have only dug us deeper into a financial hole.
Under his watch, City Hall is a tinpot dictatorship in the grip of a tough guy with a cult-like following backed (or is that created?) by a propaganda machine churning out one big lie after another.
Considering all of the above, the story about the 911 calls only reinforces what I already believed.
When you vote for a classless lout, you get the mayor you deserve.
And of course, no matter how hard you try.
You can't put lipstick on a hog...
Too bad we can't call 911 to save a great city, or a great country eh?
So we'll just have to do it ourselves.
Organize, UNITE, defeat those bastard Cons...
