The Night Stephen Harper Channelled Axl Rose
Well it must have been a scary sight. Stephen Harper at the Con Christmas party last night.
Channelling Axl Rose.
Stephen Harper channelled Axl Rose for his musical encore at the annual Conservative Christmas party on Tuesday night. Harper was on keyboards and lead vocals with his new band the Van Cats (as in 24 in French, 24 Sussex), and played the Guns N' Roses tune "Sweet Child O' Mine" to round out the night.
Even though Ol' Axl ain't the man he once was. These days he has a crazed look in his eyes.
But then of course, if you take a closer look, so does Stephen Harper....
Because as I pointed out in my last post, he's a real mess.
He's cracking up, falling apart, and so is his rotten and corrupt Con regime.
Because what else can explain that the number of people who work for the Con bosses is ballooning?
The Conservative government’s enthusiasm for cutting costs and reducing the size of the public service appears to end at the elevator to the minister’s office. Data tabled in the House of Commons on Monday shows the number of political staffers working for cabinet ministers has ballooned under the Tories, up 21 per cent per cent from the last year of Liberal rule.
And nowhere more than in his own office.
In 2005, it took 68 exempt staff to run Martin’s PMO. This year, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s command-and-control centre employs 94 people — 38 per cent more than Martin’s, according to the figures provided by Treasury Board Secretariat.
While savage budget cuts in other government departments are killing good jobs, and threatening our lives.
Budget cuts have left safety-related engineering positions vacant in the Canadian agency responsible for overseeing shipments of dangerous goods, government records show, fuelling worries about trains moving oil across the country.
So now thanks to Harper we not only have to worry about being beheaded in our beds, we have to worry about being cooked in them as well.
And let's not talk about the disaster zone called the economy. Because even his musical shout out to his beloved Alberta...
Harper also sang John Denver's "Country Roads," changing some of the lyrics to refer to Alberta instead of West Virginia.
Isn't going to make this problem go away.
Or convince any sane person that he knows what he is doing, and is a Great Economist Leader...
Not after he put all those economic eggs in one oily basket, and ended up with egg all over his face.
But it is interesting that he should close his set with the song Sweet Child O' Mine which ends like this:
Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Sweet child o' mine.
Because it does in a way sum up Harper's uncomfortable position. Or the decision he must make. The one that is driving him CRAAAAAAAZY.
Should he go now, and resign before the economic situation gets worse? Or should he strike before it gets really bad, and go for an early election?
And since Elections Canada just announced it will be ready for an election by March 1, and he's desperate to avoid the Mike Duffy trial, and busy trying to steal that election with OUR money.
I'm inclined to agree with the folks from Leadnow.
Time is running out. We need to get ready. We should build a huge movement to defeat the monstrous Con regime.
For this grotesque act has gone on for far too long...
He really is crazy, desperate, and dangerous.
We can't afford to fail.
And we really do need to give him the HOOK...
