Commander Harper and the Guns of June
Well he's been acting a little strangely lately.
The stress of watching the flood waters AND the opposition advancing, has clearly driven him over the edge.
He's been dressing up in a military uniform and pretending to be Great Commander Leader.
But while his pathetic phony photo-ops are hilarious, this is the absolute limit.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office is urging the RCMP in High River, Alta., to focus on "more important" tasks and to return the guns officers took from homes while searching for victims in the evacuated flood zone.
"If any firearms were taken, we expect they will be returned to their owners as soon as possible," the statement said. "We believe the RCMP should focus on more important tasks such as protecting lives and private property."
Who does he think he is telling the RCMP how to do their job? How dare he suggest they aren't focused on protecting lives? When all kinds of officers have been risking their own lives, and working long hours to keep people safe.
"The RCMP were not searching houses looking for firearms. The RCMP were going into homes looking for victims. If while we were in that home looking for victims there was an unsecured firearm that was out in the open, we had to take that firearm to make sure it was safe."
Why is he blowing this incident out of proportion, pouring gasoline on the flames of paranoia, and undermining the recovery effort? Why is he playing politics with a disaster?
And of course the answer is because he's NOT a leader...
Just a depraved shrunken Con who would try to score cheap political points with his political base. At a time when some of them are deserting him.
“A significant portion of those new undecided are probably former Conservatives; people don’t usually switch from one political tribe to another overnight, they kind of move into the undecided category,” Nanos said.
“It’s important to re-convert those undecided voters, what I’ll call ‘grumpy former Conservatives,’ out of the undecided column back into the Conservative category.”
And if it stirs up the gun nuts, like the kooky freaks from the Canadian Shooting Sports Association.
"This act of aggression is further proof that the RCMP have a not-so-hidden agenda to take guns away from responsible gun owners," Tony Bernardo, head of the group, said in a release.
Or if it further undermines the independence of the RCMP, at a time when they are investigating the Senate scandal, and should be investigating this one.
The Crown prosecutor is going after serious prison time in the Guelph, Ont., robocalls case, choosing to pursue Michael Sona for an indictable offence over misleading phone calls in the last federal election.
Sona, 24, is the only person charged so far in a broad investigation into complaints of misleading or harassing phone calls, allegedly intended to drive supporters of opposition parties away from the polls during the 2011 federal campaign.
All the BETTER.
Because he would turn the RCMP into his own Con police force, and he will do ANYTHING to try to cling to power.
And the good news? It won't work.
It will only make him look like a greasy gun nut, even more unstable, even more RIDICULOUS...
Not a Great Commander Leader. Not a Canadian Prime Minister. Just a small grubby Con being swept away by the forces of history. And growing more crazy desperate every day.
Golly. What good timing. Just before the Canada Day weekend.
So I can keep that thought in my mind, and party for THREE days !!!!!!
You know, Canada may not be perfect, but it's still a big, beautiful, young country, it deserves better, and we ARE going to save it.
So if Commander Harper wants a war he's going to get one...
OK. Who's buying the booze? I think I'm going to need a lot eh?
Canada forever !!!! Down with the Cons !!!
Have a great weekend everybody !!!
