Stephen Harper's Insane Caucus Photo-Op
OMG. I knew it wouldn't last. Just the other day he was tweeting his horn, playing with his chinchilla, pretending to be Mr Nice Guy Leader.
Today he was back to his usual self, Mr Nasty Crazy Leader, and playing with the Con caucus.
The great man thus entered the room to a standing ovation, the chanting of his surname and rhythmic clapping. Apparently we are to assume the government caucus reacts this way whenever the Prime Minister arrives to speak to them.
Soaking up the sweaty adulation of his hapless stooges, like a Third World dictator. Posing for the media, puffing out his flabby tits, and declaring that what Canadians need is a new Great War on Crime.
“This spring,” Mr. Harper suggested, “we must continue to be focussed—and we will be, ever more tightly—on four priorities that Canadians care most about: their families; the safety of our streets and communities; their pride in being a citizen of this country; and of course their personal financial security.”
Can you believe that? Not a mention of the aboriginal struggle for justice, just another war on crime. And only two weeks after his Public Safety Minister, the Con zombie Vic Toews, declared that we don't need as many police officers, because the crime rate is going down.
"Spending on policing has increased steadily -- reaching more than $12 billion annually in 2010. At the same time, over the last decade, the volume and severity of reported crime have both been on the decline. This has added fuel to the debate among Canadians, who rightfully want to know where and how their tax dollars are being spent."
Lordy. What is it about Stephen Harper that makes him want to punish others so much? What depraved pleasure does he derive from scaring seniors into thinking that crime is out of control?
Why does he want to jail even more young Canadians?
For "crimes" like smoking marijuana.
Instead of helping the old live happier easier lives, and finding jobs for the young.
The rise in youth unemployment in Canada during the recent recession will cost Canadian youth $23.1 billion in lost wages over the next 18 years, according to a new report by TD Economics.
This stubbornly high unemployment rate will have a big impact on both young Canadians' current wages, as well as their wages in the future.
Who will inherit a bleak low-wage future, along with a scorched planet.
Why would he declare war on them, instead of declaring war on poverty? Why is he dragging us back to the past, to 1914 or 1812, when we want a FUTURE?
Why does the Con caucus lick Great Ugly Leader's boots so easily?
Canadians want to be prosperous, they want to be safe, they want to be strong. That’s our focus. That’s why we serve,” Mr. Harper explained. “Let’s get back to work.” More applause and then someone started a round of O Canada. The assembled reporters were then kindly asked to leave.
And of course, why do I ask myself all these questions when I know the answer?
We're in the hands of a demagogic maniac, who will say or do ANYTHING to cling to power.
Nobody in his stooge caucus dares to question his madness or his evil policies.
Because they are too cowardly or too corrupted.
And NOBODY will be safe until he is defeated...
