The Harper Cons and the Long Way Down

When I think of how the little Con gnome Jimbo Flaherty is bringing the economy down to his level.

But doesn't want us to worry.

Even though once again he didn't see it coming, and he doesn't know what he's doing.

When I think about how the Harperites helped stall the economy by spending the money not on long-term jobs, but buying themselves an election.

And how Tony "Flaps" Clement is now in charge of slashing jobs in the civil service AND the new Minister of Con Ethics.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper, far from being troubled by Mr. Clement’s tendency to get into flaps, rewarded him after the election by putting him in charge of the ministry responsible for ethics, transparency and accountability in government.

When I think of Rob Nicholson on the Politics show yesterday, looking like Big Brother, with a tartan tie, as he shrugged off criticism about his crazed plan for mandatory sentences.

Or dismissed concerns about the government's plan to allow the police to spy on us more easily. You know this story.

Even though this Big Brother plan was never debated in Parliament, and would mark the beginning of the end of internet freedom in Canada.

When I see how they are treating this widow.

And I think of all of the above. And then I read this.

It's almost more than I can bear eh?

I mean who the hell are all those people who don't think Stephen Harper is the worst Prime Minister EVER? What parallel universe or jungle do they live in ? And do you feed them or WATER them???!!!!

Oh well. One day many of them will realize their tragic error. Their mistakes will flash before their eyes, as their country crumbles, and we all go down together.

And all I can say is, I hope it will be a REALLY bad movie.

Just like it was for this poor guy...

Yup. Light up a cigarette.


It's going to be a long way down...

I hear you Simon. But remember, there's always a tipping point...

hi're right, and I remain an optimist. It isn't easy crazy-gluing my hands to the railing, or my feet to the diving board. But somehow I manage... :)
