When I first heard about the Con plans to gut the census, I blamed it on simple incompetence. It made no sense at all. Tony Clement made the decision. And everybody knows he's an idiot.
They don't call him Oh My
But then I read it wasn't his decision, that this bizarre lunatic plan came straight from the twisted mind of Stephen Harper Himself.
“When these surveys were being cut back, the concerned federal departments were told not to comment on how that might muck up their work,” said the source. “They were told to shut up. The message had come from the top.”
Another source said that Clement had, in fact, advised against the decision, as had Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. Both were overruled.“It was a one-man decision,” Harper’s.
And suddenly it all made sense.
Because I may not know much about Clementine. I didn't study botany. But I do know Stephen Harper. I have worked with the mentally ill. And this is why he hates the census:
(1) He hates the truth because he can't control it. And his inner demons drive him to try to control EVERYTHING.
(2) He hates the idea of women as equal. The first thing he did when when he came to power was attack pay equity. And this lunatic move is more of the same...another attempt to KILL it.
(3) He doesn't want to acknowledge the existence of gay people and gay families. He wrote them out of the citizen's guide. Now he's trying to erase them from the record.
(4) He doesn't want Canadians to know how many poor people there are, because he's planning to attack social programs like Jack the Ripper, and he doesn't want anyone to hear the screams of the suffering.
Because suffering is his specialty. Torture doesn't bother him. He enjoys seeing fear in the eyes of others.
And of course he's CRAZY...
The good news? When Canadians understand that this deranged plan, that would shroud Canada in a fog of ignorance, is all Harper's idea. A lot of them are going to start wondering whether he's all there. If you know what I mean.
And whether he should be ...um....removed. IMMEDIATELY.
Oh goody.This should be better than Caligula...or Dr Strangelove.
First the fake lake, then the Gorilla Show, now The Plan to destroy the Census.
Thank you thank you Monkey God.
I LOVE horror stories with happy endings...
