Stephen Harper and the Prorogation Protest
Oh dear. It looks as if Stephen Harper has disappeared from public view. Which is what he always does when he goes off the deep end and pulls some kind of boo boo.
Like this one.
Oh Mein Gotterdammerung. Fifteen points in two months. Ouch. That must REALLY hurt.
Which explains why he's probably sulking in the Con war room, plotting all kinds of desperate moves, biting the carpet, and counting on his Nuremberg moment.
No doubt hoping that Canadians will love him again if he waddles the Olympic torch around the stadium. Or claims he is writing a book about Olympic movement. Even longer than the one on hockey.
But of course I'm sure he's not the only one hoping that Canadians will forgive them for what they did ....or wrote.
Grassroots fury? Thousands of people in the streets, switchboard’s browning out with indignant calls and a tsunami of e-mails might be considered a grassroots fury. Facebook groups, on the other hand, amount to a kind of ephemeral eruption that usually passes like a hot flash or the urge to vote for the Green party.
But where Harper has a hard time taking the national pulse, he enjoys an uncanny skill at divining what the people don’t care about. Harper knows ordinary Canadians don’t care about the intricacies of Parliamentary procedure.
Some political judgement....some ephemeral eruption. More than 222-thousand and COUNTING.
Oh boy. More wrong and idiot than that and they have to water you eh?
Besides that kind of tired old cynicism in a country as young as Canada makes me want to VOMIT. Because the day a country stops caring about democracy....or dreaming of something better... it shrivels up and dies.
Oh well....the important thing is that we really showed them. Thousands and thousands of decent Canadians all over the country FINALLY stood up to those foul Cons.
And since I FINALLY got some time to put a proper video together of the rally I attended. Whew.
I do declare it was AWESOME...
Eat your cynical hearts out you miserable Cons.
The Canadian people have said enough is ENOUGH.
The struggle continues.
And your days are NUMBERED...
