January 16, 2013

National Post “So called scandal”

Toronto Sun “So called case”
http://www.torontosun.com/2011/11/10/tories-make-deal-in-campaign-overspending-case

In defense of what i’ve said here, not mentioned. The papers both used ‘so called’ to refer to the phrase “in and out” often used in reference to this crime not to the validity of the crime itself. But use of the phrases “so called scandal” and “so call case” don’t just undermine the naming of the crime, they undermine the crime itself. Especially as read by the average Newspaper reader who often skims an article to get the general idea. The planting of certain phrases is integral to modern day journalism gone propaganda in the mainstream.

Also not mentioned is the NDP’s $344k fine in 2010 for illegal campaign funding practices. Again, completely un-exceptable! Difference is, the NDP didn’t win. They’re also not changing our laws or dismantling our democracy. For now.

My first Rally/Protest

March 12, 2012

Yes, i did it. Enough has finally happened to my country to inspire me to participate politically beyond the voting polls, facebook groups and blogging. We all have our breaking point. Mine was an illegitimately elected %39 ‘majority’ government passing multiple freedom killing bills all at once- and telling us daily how they have the mandate of Canadians. (more…)

Privatizing The Unprofitable

June 15, 2011

A Company needs profitability. Its financial bottom line is very real; stop making money and it will inevitably cease to exist. A government’s bottom line is with its people. Whether its a democracy or a king’s castle the concept is simple: piss off enough people and your government ceases to exist. Companies answer to profitability, governments answer to people. Say it again if you need to.

Conservativism looks like Socialism…………. you heard me.

April 28, 2011

Conservatives, I am with you. Canada needs a smaller, more efficient government or we’ll all end up as wage slaves to income tax. Socialism centralizes control bringing corruption and tyranny. People dining at the public buffet grow lethargic from lack of incentives and rewards. Psychology has taught us the larger the group of people working together, the less effort each individual will give. Socialism is inefficient because you’ve got everyone pulling the same rope; none of them caring to try. (more…)

Coalition, Fear Politicians Working Together!

April 23, 2011

Canadian politicians are very predictable. Campaign time, the leaders tell us to fear the potential coalition of party’s that could form among their opponents. Following suit, those opposition leaders will deny any interest whatsoever in coalescing. So to recap: The PM tells us to fear politicians working together, and the politicians he is referring to swear they will not work together. All the leaders have promised not to work together with any of the other leaders. Excellent. Our government is about as cohesive as a preschool soccer team, except they can’t even wear the same coloured shirts!

December 1, 2008

Conservatives are reading that heading and saying “dear god not this rubbish again”

If the liberals and NDP do form a coalition, they had better be very careful who they select as PM. (more…)
