Blogging and the Great Escape from Harperland
Well I must admit that there are so many things I want to do with my free time, now that the Winter from Hell is over and it finally feels like Spring.
Almost all of them have to do with bikes and boats.
And blogging about the horror of Harperland is not one of them. Not when sometimes all I can think about is how to escape the grubby living nightmare that the Cons have created...
By whatever means necessary.
But how can I do that, when I live for the day of liberation, and the monstrous Harperites are so EVIL?
For everywhere you look these days they are out of control.
Their grotesque leader is attacking the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for having the nerve to resist his attempts to rape the constitution.
And refusing to apologize or even offer an explanation.
The Prime Minister’s Office is rejecting a call from Canada’s legal community to clarify its statement about the Supreme Court, leaving unresolved an allegation that the Chief Justice behaved improperly.
How can I not raise my voice in protest when the equally grotesque Jason Kenney has flooded the country with foreign workers after claiming that there is a labour shortage?
Basing that claim on figures drawn from Kijiji. Only to be exposed as a complete fraud.
The Conservative government has quietly adjusted its labour data to ignore job postings from Kijiji and similar websites, a change that essentially erases the dire warnings of labour shortages that Ottawa has used as justification for expanding the controversial temporary foreign worker program.
With these sites removed from the source data, the government’s latest labour market report points to a job vacancy rate of 1.5 per cent, which is dramatically less than the 4 per cent vacancy rate Finance Canada warned of on budget day.
How can I remain silent when the sinister Con regime is spying on us like Big Brother, with the help of Big Business or Big Busybody.
In the time it will take you to read this column, say four minutes, law enforcement and other government agencies will have obtained “private” and “confidential” information on eight more Canadians from their phone or Internet providers.
It’s so routine, so pervasive, that a request for confidential information is made every 30 seconds. Almost every request is granted. It’s no exaggeration to say that Canadians are losing the right to privacy while their personal information is exploited by persons unknown; every day, around the clock.
How can I look away when Stephen Harper, the sicko maniac, is turning our country into a Banana Republic, or a corrupt dictatorship?
What’s it going to be: a modern democracy or a Steve’s banana republic of the north?
Steve likes people docile. He appears to have tamed a lot of the realm. He kicks, the subjects cringe. He kicks some more, they slip into the woods of indifference. They are so disconnected that they no longer hear the screams of the other kickees: Linda Keen, Bill Casey, Kevin Page, Marc Mayrand, even Sheila Fraser — and now, and now, Beverley McLachlin, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada.
The train wreck of the Harper government continues to roll down the mountainside, crushing body after body, yet no one utters the right word. Allow me. Canada is a dictatorship in the making.
And the truth is I can't look away, for I am not docile, I hate bullies with a passion, and I WILL keep blogging until the day him and his filthy un-Canadian Con regime are defeated and broken.
So help me Great Polar Bear God of the Great White North.
But just not tomorrow.
For as I said at the beginning, there are so many things I would rather do now that Spring is finally here...
And all things considered, I would rather play with my buddy Seb and my friends than fight eh?
But in a couple of hours I will be checking into a hospital for an operation, to repair an injury I sustained while playing with a motorbike. Gawd.
So I may not be back here for a couple of days.
But you can be sure that even when I'm lying on the operating table I will still be dreaming of ways to defeat the foul Con regime and its depraved leader. Dreaming of the day when we are finally free.
So until I am back, please think of me as Simon your friend, totally unafraid, paddling towards that great day of liberation.
Keep fighting the Cons harder than ever.
I'll miss you in the morning.
But I'll see you all soon.
