Now that the Calgary Stampede is over, and we know how many people ...apart from Great Ridiculous Leader... attended the Cowboys and Pancakes animal show.
Total attendance to date at the conclusion of Saturday is 1,070,197, nearly 41,000 down from a year ago.
After the figures were...um....adjusted.
And we know that Toronto's Pride got about the same number of people just for the PARADE, and hundreds of thousands of others attended other Pride Week events.
And that Pride celebrates freedom and human diversity.
Pride is for everyone who doesn't hate gay people. Or parades, I guess.
.... And I do hate parades, but I make an exception for Pride because, with the good-natured police officers and the army recruiting booth and some members of Canada's armed forces marching and the hotels full, the bars brimming, the DJs playing and people celebrating, it makes me feel blessed to be Canadian now.
While the Stampede celebrations include animal torture.
And drunken orgies.
I can't believe people seriously say you're lucky if you get through Stampede week without losing either your wife, your job or your driver's licence.
OK I don't mind the orgies just the hypocrisy. But what I really want to know is why did the Stampede get $2 million from the Cons, while Pride got only a lousy 400-thousand?
Because that's the REAL scandal. First they discriminated against gay people, and then they discriminated against them AGAIN by reviewing their miserable grant.
But that's OK. It's a small price to pay for exposing the bigotry of these Cons, revealing the theocon conspiracy in the PMO, and how much they HATE Ontario. You know, the place where they were hoping to pick up votes in the next election.
Hee Haw. Flip me a pancake. I think we've got these Cons where we want them. Down on their knees with their rabid base in the toilet of homophobia. Praying up a shitstorm of hate. Dumping on Ontario. Scaring the Jebesus out of Canadians.
Or as the great Montrealer Bloodshot Bill would say.
Just lickin' the
Hee Haw. I mean Yee Haw!! Isn't Bloodshot Bill great ?
Aren't the Cons DISGUSTING?
