I'm glad I'm leaving Canada for a while because I really need to get away from this ghastly political monster.
Who is now so desperate, he is turning his depraved Harperland into a mad house.
For there he was in a Bloomberg interview claiming that he was a Great Economist Leader, the steady hand on the wheel.
And that letting anyone else steer Canada through these perilous times could only lead to disaster.

As I mentioned in my last post, Stephen Harper and his criminal Con gang now seem to have a triple-edged strategy.
They are going to try to cripple the opposition by extending the campaign. They are going to use the financial advantage that gives them by bombarding us with their porky ads.
Even if it costs taxpayers millions of dollars.
And of course they are going to use our money to try to buy the election.
But even by their grubby standards this is outrageous.
For ten long years he has schemed and plotted to destroy the Canada he hates so much, by perverting our traditions, and dismembering our democracy.
And now he's got a new plan that he hopes will do both.
Force a long and exhausting election campaign upon Canadians, so he can bombard them with ads from his well funded propaganda machine, while draining the money like blood out of the opposition.
So he can claw them to death in the final stages of the campaign.
And it seems that the Final Battle for Canada is about to begin.
Well never let it be said that the Harper Cons are not a cult, or a herd of pathetic sheeple.
A baaing bunch incapable of independent thought, who can only repeat word for word what the PMO tells them.
As even their so-called Finance Minister, the hapless stooge Joe Oliver, does all the time...
And for even more evidence of that please consult the following video.

As you know, I wasn't too impressed by the latest Con attack ad aimed at the NDP. And I'm sure Tom Mulcair wasn't either.
Because when Stephen Harper accuses you of being as corrupt as he is, that could be dangerous. You could die LAUGHING.
But then I also hate the never ending Con attack ads aimed at Justin Trudeau.
Because every time I see this ghastly geezer on TV I feel like screaming.
He is one of Canada's best known citizens. A famous Hollywood actor, and a proud Canadian.
But now like more than a million other Canadians who live abroad, he's been told he no longer has the right to vote.
And Donald Sutherland is not amused.

It couldn't be more grotesque, it couldn't be more hypocritical, it couldn't be more laughable.
After smearing his own excrement all over this country, the lowlife political hog Stephen Harper is now accusing the NDP of being corrupt.
By firing this attack ad at them out of his rear orifice.
The other day I ran a video of Joe Oliver literally running for cover, so he didn't have to answer questions from reporters about the state of the economy.
And explain why the Parliamentary Budget Officer says he has a billion dollar DEFICIT instead of a billion dollar SURPLUS as he has been claiming.
And now I'm sorry to report that Oily Joe is STILL running, so is Stephen Harper.
And the Cons are trying their best to make sure they never have to answer that burning question.
The other day I wrote about how Stephen Harper is remaking the judiciary in his own ghastly image.
In his never-ending attempt to bend the Supreme Court to his will, and destroy the Charter of Rights.
Well today he took another step by appointing another uber right-wing judge.

I don't believe I've ever written a tribute to a Conservative in this country. For obvious reasons.
But yesterday I retweeted this message from this decent Conservative...
To announce the death of his friend and great Canadian Flora MacDonald.
Sunday, July 26, 2015
All through the long and dark years of Stephen Harper's evil regime the Supreme Court of Canada has been his most mighty opponent.
Time and time again it has rejected his foul and flawed bills that would have turned us into a monstrous police state, or a vengeful theocracy.
It has been the last bastion of Canadian values that the depraved tyrant has been unable to corrupt or destroy.
But what most people don't know, and as the Globe's Sean Fine points out, Harper has been slowly undermining the court from below.
By stealthily remaking our judiciary in his own monstrous image.
Saturday, July 25, 2015
Well there he was in Saskatchewan yesterday, looking as ghastly as I have ever seen him.
Announcing his plan to shrink the Senate by attrition.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is vowing not to make any more Senate appointments, in an effort to distance himself from the scandal-plagued Red Chamber and to goad provinces into agreeing to reform or abolish the discredited legislative body.
But since I don't care what happens to the Senate, all I could think of was why is Stephen Harper looking so beaten?
When a new poll suggests that his sleazy plan to buy the election is working.
Progressive Bloggers, the blogging aggregator, is celebrating it's 10th anniversary. Scott Tribe and others are getting together in Toronto today to mark the occasion.
And they have every right to celebrate, or give themselves a few high fives, for it is a magnificent achievement.
Those who post on Progressive Bloggers, or read those posts, or contribute comments owe them a lot.
And I know I do.

Well I have to admit that I too am now deep into the Canadian summer, and don't feel like writing about politics, or doing anything too strenuous. I just want to have fun with my buddy Sébastien.
As humble as that might be.
Yikes. How low have I fallen?
But I just HAD to share this great joke with you.
It seems that Stephen Harper and his fellow oil pimp Brad Wall are about to declare war on the Con Senate !!!
Thursday, July 23, 2015
For weeks Stephen Harper and his grubby flying monkey Joe Oliver, have been trying to fool Canadians into thinking that they had balanced the budget for the first time in eight years.
Harper has been travelling around claiming that the economic shock waves that are rocking this country are just a "downturn" not a recession. And that he still has the money to bribe them.
While the senile simian Oliver has been claiming that he has a surplus not a deficit.
But yesterday all those claims came tumbling down, and both men were exposed as shameless Con artists.

I hope you're enjoying the spectacle of Donald Trump destroying the Republican Party, because I sure am.
It's better than the pictures from Pluto eh?
Every day it just gets more spectacular.
Every day that Con clown circus just spins more out of control.
As anyone who has ever read this blog must know, I have tried to be as non-partisan as possible, and stay out of the battles between the Liberals and the NDP.
In the firm belief that all progressives should focus on defeating Stephen Harper and his foul Con regime, who are threatening to destroy the country we love.
So although I believe the NDP is our best hope of defeating the Cons, I have never attacked Justin Trudeau despite the many mistakes he has made. On the contrary, I have defended him over and over again, when the Cons have attacked him.
I like Justin, I think his heart is in the right place.
But as a Canadian and a Quebecer, I can't let this go unchallenged
I realize that we are now in the heart of the Canadian summer, and the last thing most Canadians want to think about is politics.
But the PMO never sleeps, there are still rumours circulating that Stephen Harper is planning to call an election in the next few weeks.
Before all those Canadians he's trying to bribe, spend the $3 billion child care dollars he sent them.
And in that regard this may or may not be significant.

Well there was Stephen Harper yesterday, looking and sounding like a sleazy used car salesman, declaring it was Christmas in July, and feverishly trying to buy an election.
And in all the years of writing about him and his corrupt, morally depraved regime, I don't think I've ever seen a more disgusting spectacle.
Two days ago in this letter marked "confidential" he was urging his caucus to look like Con Santas, and lie like thieves.
Let me be perfectly clear: if Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair form the next government, they will take these benefits away from families, raise taxes, and put Canada back in a cycle of spiralling deficits. We only have to look at Greece to see where that plan leads.
And yesterday, in a what was called a "special message" by his propaganda machine, there he was in all his greasy glory...
Monday, July 20, 2015
I don't think I've ever seen such a scary tricycle scene since the famous one in the horror movie The Shining.
You know this one.
Pierre Polievre aka Mini Harper or Dickhead, pedalling furiously all over Canada pretending he's Santa Claus.
And that it's Christmas in July.
Sunday, July 19, 2015
As you may know a Toronto businessman wants to build a massive statue called Mother Canada in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
And although it is a private initiative, the foundation he created is now looking for public money.
Even though polls show most Canadians hate the idea.
And most of the reviews have been brutal.
I've written a lot of posts about the Stephen Harper and his Great Con War on Pensions and Seniors for a couple of very simple reasons.
I like old people, I work and care for them all the time. I see far too many of them suffering the indignities of poverty in a country as rich as Canada. I will not remain quiet when so many are suffering in silence.
And of course I loathe and despise foul bullies like Jesus Harper with every bone in my body.
So now I'm writing another post, because as Martin Regg Cohn writes, his latest assault on pensions couldn't be more disgusting and reflexively destructive.
I don't know why it's taken so long for many Canadians to be angered by Stephen Harper, considering what he has done to Canada.
But a new EKOS poll shows that anger is growing.
And it has a lot to do with the state of the economy.
Saturday, July 18, 2015
It was a day of good news and bad news on the election front yesterday.
The good news is that now that we know that Stephen Harper is cancelling his annual trip to the Arctic, we know that he is almost certainly going drop the writ much sooner than expected.
So we can be ready, and try to foil his plans to buy the election.
And the bad news? A judge has approved his devious plan to try to steal it.
As I'm sure you remember, during the early years of the war in Afghanistan there was no greater chicken hawk than Stephen Harper.
Until he realized it wasn't winning him enough votes, and he decided to cut and run.
But while he has been able to run away from a lot of things, like the state of the economy.
He can't run away from his precious war, because we're still reaping its bloody harvest.
Friday, July 17, 2015
As I told you yesterday, those of us who live in Central Canada are under attack by the wild eyed oil pimp Brad Wall.
Who says if we don't accept his West-East pipeline, he'll cut off our equalization payments and leave us freezing in the dark.
And although it's going to feel like forty degrees tomorrow we are worried.
Because it seems that nothing will stop him !!!
As you know I'm deeply concerned by the horrible thought that Stephen Harper could ruin our summer, or steal it, as only Great Maniac Leader could.
By calling an election one month earlier than most people had expected. So he can use a longer campaign to bankrupt his opponents.
So I'm very glad to see that at least the NDP isn't worried.
Oh great. Just what this broken bleeding country needs.
Another Con oil pimp like Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan.
Sweeping out of the West to declare war on Central Canada.
Thursday, July 16, 2015
For years Stephen Harper was able to fool or brainwash many Canadians into believing that he was a Great Economist Leader.
Even as he put all our eggs into one oily basket, demolished what was left of our manufacturing sector, brought in armies of foreign workers to drive down wages, failed to create enough jobs, and ran one deficit after the other.
And he was hoping that helped by a billon dollars worth of porky ads paid for with OUR money, that phony reputation would win him another monstrous majority.
But yesterday that dream ended, when the day of reckoning finally arrived.
I've been trying to soak up every precious minute of summer I can. Trying to escape the city by heading out on the lake, to feel the wind in my face or the sun beating down on me.
Or just lying in my hammock, with my cell phone turned off, reading a book, or watching the flowers bloom...
Not just because the summer took a long time to arrive, or because our Canadian summers are so tragically short.
But because for weeks I've been hearing rumours that Stephen Harper has a monstrous plan to make this one even shorter.

When I first read the story about the Con MP who compared Stephen Harper to Jesus I must admit I was greatly amused.
As were so many others.
I wondered whether Wai Young was a religious fanatic, and whether she really believed what she was saying.
Or was just trying to please Jesus Harper.
The deranged leader of the Con cult.
I don't know if you've noticed, but Rona Ambrose has recently stepped up the Great Con War on Marijuana.
By rerunning that old anti-marijuana ad, the one with dirty glass tubing representing the human brain on drugs.
And sticking us with the bummer bill.
Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Well I must admit that even though I am an atheist I never would have compared Stephen Harper to Jesus.
Not with that face, not with those horns.
And not for bringing in Bill C-51 or imposing tougher prison sentences.
But that is what a Con MP has just done.
As you know Stephen Harper is now engaged in a delicate balancing act, or caught in a compromising position.
He's trying to claim that when the economy was doing well it was because he's a Great Economist Leader.
But now that it isn't doing well it's not his fault.
But sadly for him it's just not working.
Monday, July 13, 2015
About a week ago I wrote about how disappointed I was to hear both Tom Mulcair and Justin Trudeau declare that they would not attack Stephen Harper like he attacks them.
And I even wondered whether they were trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
For no government in Canadian history ever deserved to be attacked more than Harper and his depraved Con regime.
And this sobering article by Bruce Livesey only reinforces what I have always believed.
As I'm sure you remember, the last time we dropped in on Pierre Poilievre aka Pee Wee or Dickhead, he was posing with a pile of child care benefit cheques at a printing facility in Winnipeg.
Just to let millions of Canadians with children under eighteen know that the cheque was almost in the mail.
And that it pays to vote for the Harper Cons. Wink. Wink.
Which was such a sordid spectacle, it was practically pornographic.
Well guess what? It just got worse.
Sunday, July 12, 2015
Lordy. And to think I didn't take Stephen Harper seriously when he claimed he was leading the fight to "liberate" Ukraine.
Who knew that he actually helped bring down a duly elected government?
For crass political purposes.
Or as others might say, was used as a hapless pawn.
It couldn't have been a more disgraceful sight. Or one more pathetic.
Stephen Harper posing in front of a wall of fidgeting and yawning children.
Admitting for the first time that the economy is in trouble.
But somehow managing to blame others.
There's a new Con attack ad out there aimed at Justin Trudeau. I'd heard about it but last night I saw it for the first time, and it couldn't be more disgusting.
Not just because it tries to terrorize seniors. Not just because it's another Big Lie.
But also because it's so stealthy.
Saturday, July 11, 2015
Well there was Stephen Harper last night, at the opening ceremony of the Pan Am Games with his hapless stooge Joe Oliver at his side.
Both of them trying to look like they were having a good time.
But not quite pulling it off, and with good reason.
For it was yet another day when they had nothing to celebrate.
As the fireworks burst over my neighbourhood last night, and I watched the Cirque du Soleil's amazing performance at the opening ceremony of the Pan Am games, I was reminded of the country we could be.
A still young country that could dazzle the world in a peaceful beautiful way. A decent country, like the one we once were, full of hope and promise.
Not the country we have become after so many years of being degraded in every possible way by Stephen Harper and his filthy Con regime.
A rogue nation which is getting ready to be spanked by the United Nations, that we helped create, for its appalling human rights record.
Friday, July 10, 2015
As we all know Stephen Harper was hoping to torpedo the political leaders's debates, by boycotting the ones organized by the big three tv networks. The ones that millions of Canadians watch.
And replacing them with a series of smaller debates, with friendlier moderators, on channels that hardly anyone watches.
And hoping that the big three networks would cancel their debates, because he wouldn't be there.
But sadly for him his bluff has been called.
I've written several posts about the tragic story of Cpl. Stuart Langridge, who killed himself seven years ago after serving his country honourably in Bosnia and Afghanistan.
I told you how the military didn't accept that he was suffering from PTSD, they didn't treat his illness, they treated him like a cheater, until he finally hanged himself.
I also told you how they kept his suicide note from his parents for over a year, even though it was addressed to them.
And how his parents finally found out earlier this year that a secret military report had blamed him for what happened.
But this has to be the final betrayal.
Golly. I never thought I'd be happy to see the grotesque billionaire bigot Donald Trump doing well at anything.
But I must say this is very encouraging.
"Trump's really caught fire with voters on the far right — 66% of 'very conservative' voters see him favorably to only 24% with a negative view of him."
Especially since Trump's soaring popularity has Republican leaders freaking out.
