Porky Tales and the Madness of Con Canada
After disconnecting myself from the 24-hour news cycle for about a week, I decided to check out what Stephen Harper and his Cons had been up to in my absence.
Because as we all know, you can't take your eyes off that porky gang for a moment, in case you miss another scandal, another ethical malfunction, another democratic outrage, another court case.
Or the latest police intervention.
Fugitive Nathan Jacobson, whose ties to the federal Conservatives made him the subject of recent question period queries from opposition benches, was arrested at his home in Toronto Thursday afternoon.
In recent years, Jacobson had spent much time in the corridors of power, both in Israel and Canada, and in March a smiling Jacobson was photographed between both Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu at a reception in Ottawa. Jacobson claimed to have worked on the 2008 campaign for the Tories and was also considered a friend of cabinet ministers Jason Kenney and John Baird.
And sure enough, when I looked at the list of all the things that the Con regime had done in just ONE week, I could hardly believe my eyes. It was so long, and so horrible, and so crazy, I can only conclude they are imploding. Or going hog wild !!!!
For there was little Jimbo Flaherty, proving once again that he doesn't know what he's doing, his corporate tax give-away plan is a scam, and he can't count.
Just like I always said he couldn't...
There was the wingnut Maurice Vellacott handing out Jubilee medals to religious extremists.
Vellacott told LifeSiteNews that he had arranged to have Wagner given a medal for “using civil disobedience to further a just cause.”
“Civil disobedience” that involves invading a private premises and tussling with the people therein? Hey, why not steal the flat-screen TV and the good drugs while you’re in there? Thoreau would puke.
There was Dean Del Mastro trying to muzzle the internet.
Because he's such a classy guy eh?
While his fellow Con klowns did their best to turn our parliament into a farce.
And if all of that wasn't bad enough, I also learned that the Cons have damaged the census so badly, we'll soon have no idea what kind of country we're living in.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cancellation of the long-form census has started to take a toll on Statistics Canada’s data. The agency released its final tranche of the 2011 census last week, focusing on languages, but it included a big warning that cautions data users about comparing key facts against censuses of the past.
Because ignorance is strength, facts are dangerous, and the truth is what Harper says it is.
And what WAS Great Ugly Leader doing while all of this was happening, and the police and the courts were going after his good buddies? Answer: squawking like an absurd chicken hawk about the War of 1812, while bombarding us with ads, like cannon balls, for his phony Economic Action Plan.
Until this ridiculous image...
Could not be separated from this one...
For goodness knows the Porky Action Plan and War of 1812 ads are EVERYWHERE. Even at the place where the Cons are muzzling scientists.
Oh boy. Can you believe that eh? What kind of country are we living in? For this isn't just criminal incompetence and sinister ideology, this is pure MADNESS.
And if they could do all that in one WEEK, can you imagine what they could do in the next two YEARS if we don't unite to stop them?
For the sake of sanity, for the sake of Canada.
Fight them, fight them, fight them.
End this porky nightmare...
