I’m a coward

January 16, 2013

You can too! Change doesn’t require just hero’s and loud mouths. Revolution can come from quiet, reserved people as well- even cowards. Another good example of cowardice- stealing ideas. I took this idea of multi-tier dissent from Huffington Post or somewhere, not even sure. They are second tier and were talking about the flak the first tier gets. My addition to this concept of course is the third tier, the viewing gallery. The place where we can laugh, point and get angry without sparking too much ire from the establishment.

Conservative Campaign Scandal

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.
