Conservative Campaign Scandal

January 16, 2013

Conservatives buy their way out of buying the 2006 election.

Robocall scandal. Or you could just google it, plenty of good reading out there.

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.

Harper Spends 1 Billion on Missile Drones

January 16, 2013

Peacekeeping everyone into total submission. Harper plans to put robots with weapons into the sky. Does it matter to you that someone stole the election here and is now arming the sky above us. Re-writing our laws. Permitting our resources to be had internationally for next to nothing. Come on people, Wake Up! We’ve lost our country! A dark future awaits us if we don’t restore democracy in Canada and around the world.

Harper government intends to spend $1 billion on armed drones for Canadian military

The Conservative government approved last month the issuing of a request to aerospace firms to provide details about the types of drones now available. In its request to the industry, the government pointed out the need for the unmanned aircraft to operate in the Arctic. The aircraft should also be able to carry precision-guided munitions, the government said.

Blackwater trained Canadian troops without permission, Canadian troops and police were trained for two years by the international security contractor formerly known as Blackwater without the permission of the U.S. State Department.
The revelation is contained in U.S. federal court records, unsealed in North Carolina as part of a $7.5 million settlement of criminal charges against the company now called Academi LLC.
“The Harper government has had a standing contract with the company since 2008.”
It’s paid millions of dollars going back to 2006 for the specialized training, given to special forces troops and some police officers.

Drilling for Oil in the Gulf of the St Lawrence

January 16, 2013

Contained within the massive ‘budget’ bill C-38, corporations are now allowed to drill for oil in the Gulf of the St Lawrence. They’ve wasted no time applying to drill now that the legal door has been opened. What else will they destroy to squeeze every last resources out of our beautiful country?

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…)

Kony 2012 Is A Deception

March 9, 2012

Banks don’t lend money, they print it out of thin air. Africa’s debt is imagined and keeps them in total poverty. Foreign land owners don’t let people produce for themselves so 24000 of them die every day from malnutrition and starvation. Trade laws force the countries to provide cheap labour and extreme low prices on raw materials…Western banks create the circumstances for people like Kony to exist, people don’t form kidnapping armies in developed countries…… We cause their suffering by who we elect. Red, blue, red, blue….

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!

Jack Layton for Prime Minister of Canada

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…)

“Grassroots”

Another term falling victim to language manipulation in the interest of political gain. Examine the metaphor. Many roots of blades of grass growing together upward, becoming a lawn (more…)

Why you shouldn’t worry about the economy.
