Blogging in the Darkness of Harperland
When I started blogging nine years ago I never could have imagined that so many years later I'd still be blogging in the darkness of Stephen Harper's Canada.
Or that after all he's done to this country, he could still dream about winning another bloody majority.
Or that we are still living in the terrifying shadow of this nightmare.
For that would be the end of the Canada we know and love. And he is a monster.
Who would use another majority to turn us into a police state or his cruel jungle.
You know, sometimes I wonder what I might have been blogging about if Harper hadn't stumbled out of his hellish darkness to try to kill everything beautiful about this country.
I would have written about politics of course, and about the struggles of the oppressed, but there would have been a lot of other smaller stories.
Like the story of this dying woman in England...
Who thanks to the kind staff in her hospital was given a chance to say goodbye to her beloved horse.
Because I admire kindness above all. And try to celebrate it wherever I go in life.
Or the story of Smiley the blind therapy dog.
Because I do love animals. And believe that how people treat them tells me all I need to know about the kind of humans they are.
And this story would also have made it.
Because keeping CPR going, on a toddler, for 101 minutes, believe me is quite a feat. And my heroes are healers not killers.
I think I would have enjoyed writing stories about all those things, more than I enjoy writing about the atrocities of the Con regime, night after night after night.
But of course this blog was always going to be about bullies, because I hate them with a passion, was forced to fight them from the age of twelve.
And this is the worst one I've ever seen...
His monstrous regime is the worst government this country has ever known.
And like all those other bullies, I will see them defeated as well.
For I believe in this sign the Quebec student movement is waving these days...
To dare to fight is to dare to win.
So anyway, as I enter my tenth year of blogging I just want to thank you my readers for all your support and encouragement. Because you are truly amazing, and if I didn't have you I'd probably need Smiley.
And in this bleak Spring in Harperland, I'd like to return the favour, and encourage YOU.
Like so many others in this broken country, we have been on a long and dark journey. And it has been incredibly depressing.
But we are coming into the light, and it is almost the time when we will finally get a chance to take our country back.
And what could be greater than that?
So cheer up, and get ready to fight harder than you ever have before.
The nightmare must and will be ended.
And the bully will be beaten...
