The Big Rain and the Sinking Harper Cons
Well I'm glad I didn't have to go to work yesterday afternoon eh?
So I didn't have to wear a bathing suit to the office, or be rescued from a train by the marine unit.
Or have to enter a car in such an undignified fashion, after the Big Rain.
Although I suppose it could have been worse...
And at least now I know for SURE that you can't count on Rob Ford in an emergency...
But then I knew that eh? And although was in the darkness for a couple of hours I didn't really care.
Because by then I was already celebrating this flood...
Which when I heard it flush, gave me a sudden feeling of ELATION.
A bit like Ed had when he heard the news from Egypt...
And the best news? We're going to have a lot of those elation moments in the weeks and months ahead.
Because Stephen Harper's summer is turning into a nightmare. The extreme weather events in Alberta and Toronto, as well as the tragedy in Lac Megantic, have put a spike in his plans to turn Canada into a petro-state.
And with the Senate scandal growing worse by the day, even some in his own base are abandoning him.
More worryingly for the prime minister is that only 6 per cent strongly approved of how this has been managed, while 41 per cent strongly disapproved — including 10 per cent of Conservative voters. Add the 28 per cent who said they somewhat disapproved, and you have more than 1-in-3 Tory supporters (a group whose ranks have already been whittled down) not exactly enamoured with Harper's handling of the issue.
But, again, these sorry numbers were from a poll taken before the recent news emerged. And with the prime minister sticking with his story, there does not seem to be any chance his approval ratings on the scandal are going to go anywhere but down.
Great Ugly Leader was hoping to press the reset button on his tired government this summer before Parliament resumes in the fall. But he can forget about that now.
The flood of history is sweeping him away to his destruction...
Glug. Glug. Glug.
And the future has never looked brighter.
And how do I feel about that?
Well, I could go on and on, but we're being asked to conserve electricity because the city's power supply, like the Con regime, is apparently "hanging by a thread."
So I'll just say this: Vic Toews has been flushed down the toilet, Stephen Harper and the other Cons will soon be following him.
And I'm going to be taking a little time out.
To do some serious CELEBRATING !!!!
Yup. The Cons may have brutalized this country, but they could never kill our spirit.
The present may be perilous.
But the future belongs to us...
