Well, let's put it this way eh? It wasn't exactly democracy's finest hour.
First the Cons rolled their Trojan horse budget, packed to the rafters with non-budget stuff that will gut our environmental laws, into the House of Commons.
Then when the opposition demanded the bill be split up so it can be properly studied, James Moore, fresh from mutilating the CBC, replied by
“Mr. Speaker, budget 2012 is about creating jobs and opportunities for Canadians,” he assured. “We tabled this bill on March 29 and it is now May 7.”
That today is May 7 is beyond dispute. But while the Finance Minister delivered his budget speech on March 29, the actual bill was not tabled until April 26.
Then it was Joe "Oily" Oliver's turn to emerge from the Black Lagoon, flap his wings furiously, and squawk that anyone who doesn't agree with the Cons is an Enemy of Canada.
Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver defended his government’s sweeping changes to Canada’s environmental laws saying those opposed are standing in the way of jobs and growth.
Because it's all about making Alberta rich eh? And what we don't know won't kill us.
And then as if all that wasn't horrible enough, the Speaker of House of Commons ruled that the Cons hadn't misled the House by lying about the real costs of the F-35 boondoggle.
Scheer said in his ruling Monday that he was being asked to determine if statements made in the House of Commons were truthful but responded that the task is beyond his role as Speaker.
Because he can't tell the difference between a lie and the truth. And like all the Con robots he's programmed to do and say what Big Oil and Lord Harper tell him.
So you can imagine what he's going to say when he's asked to rule on whether the RoboCons stole an election.
Oh yeah, did I mention that Peter Van Loan made an absolute IDIOT out of himself? Again.
Q: Let’s go back to something your Prime Minister said, which I assume you’re familiar with this quote by now, but I’ll read it just for the sake of clarity. This was 1994, dealing with the implementation bill that year. He said, ‘First there’s a lack of relevancy of these issues. The omnibus bills we have before us attempt to amend—’
A: This is from an argument on a point of order?
A: What was the ruling of the Speaker?
Q: The Speaker ruled it out of order.
A: Well there you are.
Q: But then are you saying you don’t agree with your Prime Minister of 1994?
A: I think the Speaker’s ruling speaks for itself.
Oh. My. Godzilla. I can't stand it. The stupidity BURNS.
But there is some good news eh? The day these Con klowns are defeated, and our democracy is restored, we'll be asking a JUDGE to rule on their fate.
And if there is any justice they'll ALL be going where Stephen Harper is going...
And won't that be a lovely sight?
Fight them, fight them, fight them.
Don't let them win...
