Stephen Harper and the Insane Clown Circus
I have to admit that sometimes I can't decide whether Stephen Harper and his Cons are an insane clown posse, or just circus clowns who are so dumb they're dangerous.
But today at least that choice was a little easier.
Because the leader of the Con posse was in Germany, scaring the bejesus out of the Germans.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a solemn warning to Germans about Russia on Wednesday, reminding them of the dangers posed by a leader with a Cold War mentality who has brazenly seized territory from a weaker neighbour.
For he is the one with the Cold War mentality, and most Germans must be questioning his sanity...
While here at home his Cons were carrying on like mere circus clowns of a lower variety.
For there was the hapless stooge of Big Oil Leona Aglukkaq, painfully reading her PMO script, and claiming that NOBODY has done more to fight climate change than the Cons...
When in fact nobody has done less and like her depraved leader she's a climate change denier.
And if that wasn't scary enough, then there was old Joe Oliver posing as a Finance Minister, reciting the lines written for him on his colour coded talking points...
To try to avoid making a fool out of himself like he did the other day.
When he made THREE mistakes in THIRTY seconds...
Which must surely be a new record in the Guiness Book of Gross Incompetence.
And clearly shows that Oily Joe is as dangerously out of it, as he was when he invited us to drink the water from the Tar Ponds.
But wait it gets worse eh?
For even that scary comedic performance couldn't match Jason Kenney's defence of the Con decision to rely on Kijiji for their facts, instead of Statistics Canada.
The Conservative government is defending its use of Kijiji to support its claims of a growing skills shortage in Canada, even though the Parliamentary Budget Officer says the website’s wonky job data are throwing off the government’s math.
By claiming he knows more than the experts.
“People are laughing at Kijiji, but it’s the new classified ads,” he told CTV’s Power Play. “I would just invite some of these economists – who sit in front of their spreadsheets of inadequate data trying to figure out the world – I wish they would actually go out into the real world and talk to employers like I do all the time.”
When in fact he's no expert, and Nathan Cullen is right:
“Kijiji’s a great place to sell a bike, but this is no way to run an economy,” said NDP finance critic Nathan Cullen after Question Period.
But of course, none of this really funny, it's absolutely PATHETIC.
Stephen Harper may be a Great Cold War Warrior, in his relentless pursuit of the ethnic vote...
But he is CRAZY.
And as the Parliamentary Budget Officer points out, he is no Great Economist Leader.
The 33-page report looked at employment, unemployment, job vacancies and wages — both nationally and regionally. It found that six years after the recession hit, joblessness still remains above the norm, particularly for the young.
There is no skill shortage.
The problem now is that there are not enough jobs. Period.
He's leading us to economic and social disaster, while trying to start the Third World War.
And anybody who still thinks he shouldn't be removed from office as soon as is humanly possible, should do as the Parliamentary Press Gallery does.
And have another drink...
Or better still just work harder than ever to defeat that insane clown leader.
Before he makes us poor.
Before he kills us all...
