Jason Kenney's Obscene Brexit Celebration

13 hours 5 sec ago

As you know I've been complaining about how Jason Kenney seems to be everywhere these days. The MSM just can't get enough of him.

One moment he's on his burro preparing to head to Alberta to try to unite the right, and evict the NDP commies from power.

The next moment he's causing some scandal on Twitter.

As he was doing again yesterday.

The Brexit Referendum and the Independence of Scotland

15 hours 18 min ago

I knew the LEAVE side was going to win the Brexit referendum hours before the polls closed.

When I heard that the poor who live in the Britain's rundown Council estates were turning out to vote in massive numbers.

And the reason I did is because if you have ever taken the train from London to Edinburgh, as I sometimes like to do.

Only about two hours after you leave the glittering prosperous capital, you enter a very different Britain.

Donald Trump's Incredibly Idiot Day in Scotland

Fri, 06/24/2016 - 16:55

In one of my last posts I tried to explain why most Scots hate Donald Trump so much.

And why so many are planning to protest his visit. 

And now that he has arrived in that country, there was more evidence that Trump just doesn't get it.

And why he is unfit to be President of the United States.

The Con Media and the Cult of Jason Kenney

Fri, 06/24/2016 - 05:06

As you may remember, when I last dropped in on the ghastly Con Jason Kenney he was busy consulting his shiny crystal ball.

And trying to decide whether to run for the leadership of the Harper Party, or leave Ottawa and try to unite the right in Alberta.

Well, it turns out the ball was wrong.

Scotland Prepares to Give Donald Trump a Rough Reception

Fri, 06/24/2016 - 01:36

It's hard for me to imagine a more disturbing image. This file picture of Donald Trump screaming like a maniac at one of his two Scottish gold courses. With a piper beaming behind him.

And in the background the grass covered dunes, that line the shore of the North Sea, that I used to play on when I was a boy.

It feels like a desecration. It's just too horrible. 

But the good news is that Trump is heading back to Scotland tomorrow, and he's going to get a very different kind of reception.

The Cons and the Never-Ending War on the Poor

Thu, 06/23/2016 - 03:53

You might think Lisa Raitt and her Cons might stop attacking the agreement to enhance the Canada Pension Plan now that a deal has been reached.

But no, Raitt is still on the offensive...

Now suggesting it's the work of Big Brother.

While Big Business is calling it the road to economic ruin.

Michelle Rempel's Monstrous Cannibal BBQ

Wed, 06/22/2016 - 03:31

When I heard that Michelle Rempel had hosted a BBQ for declared and potential Con leadership candidates, I knew it would be a ghastly story.

I knew it couldn't have been a pig roast, for obvious reasons.

But who knew it was such a cannibal affair?

Donald Trump and the Money Pit

Tue, 06/21/2016 - 23:47

It's the ultimate irony. Donald Trump the billionaire, who is always boasting about how much money he has.

The man who claimed he could self finance his own campaign.

Now finds himself in a really embarrassing position.

Up to his big mouth in a money pit of his own making.

Stephen Harper and the Afghan Torture Scandal

Tue, 06/21/2016 - 03:00

For years there have been rumours that Stephen Harper knew that some of our soldiers in Afghanistan were torturing the prisoners they captured. Or did nothing to stop others torturing them.

But didn't do anything about it, because he just didn't care, and always enjoyed the pain of others.

And the truth about what happened was covered up, or lost in the fog of war.

But now at last that scandal may be coming back to haunt him.

The Con Plan to Hurt the Old Goes Down in Flames

Tue, 06/21/2016 - 01:16

I can only imagine the frenzied state the scary Con Lisa Raitt must be in right now. But you can be sure it isn't pretty.

And she is no doubt still howling at the moon, like her miserable leader Rona Ambrose.

But it won't do those ghastly Cons any good, because their desperate attempts to sabotage plans to enhance the CPP have gone down in flames.

Is Donald Trump's Campaign Going Down in Flames?

Mon, 06/20/2016 - 04:19

For a long time it seemed that nothing Donald Trump said or did could hurt him, or put a dent in his polls.

But now that seems to be changing.

Because after a very bad month, his campaign is now starting to look like a slow motion train wreck.

Or plane crash.

The Canada Pension Plan and the Cruelty of the Cons

Sun, 06/19/2016 - 23:31

As long as Stephen Harper was in power there was never any hope of enhancing the Canada Pension Plan.

Because he always claimed the economy was too fragile to afford it, he didn't like the idea of pensions, and believed that Canadians should save for their own retirement.

So I'm glad that now that he is gone, the federal government and the provinces will be meeting in Vancouver today to see what can be done to enhance the CPP.

But I'm not surprised that the Harper Party hasn't changed its position.

The Bloated Ambition of the Con Bigot Jason Kenney

Sun, 06/19/2016 - 06:53

For a long time after his Cons were crushed and humiliated, the foul Harper stooge Jason Kenney kept a very low profile.

So low in fact that some of his closest accomplices feared he had lost his mind at the thought of losing so much power.

But now he's back.

His burning ambition has inflated him like some ghastly blimp.

Rachel Notley and the Hatred That Kills

Sun, 06/19/2016 - 02:49

For years I have been warning that hatred kills. Like it did in Orlando last Sunday. Or like it did in Britain last Thursday.

When the gentle, decent Labour MP Jo Cox was shot and stabbed to death by a another cowardly bigot.

And I've also warned that the same poison was spreading in Canada.

Where progressive leaders like Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley have been attacked by packs of rabid haters, and bombarded with death threats.

But it seems some people never learn.

The Burning Planet and the Nasty Surprise

Sat, 06/18/2016 - 05:19

It's going to be a really hot weekend in the place where I live, so I'm hoping to spend as much time as possible at the beach.

But I wonder how much longer I'll be able to do that, as the world just keeps getting hotter and hotter.

Donald Trump and the American Horror Story

Sat, 06/18/2016 - 03:18

In one of last posts I told you how shocked most LGBT Americans were to hear themselves described as Donald Trump's newest supporters.

With that ghastly bigot now claiming that after the Orlando massacre, gay people hate Muslims as much as he does.

Even though that's nonsense.

So I'm glad to see that Hillary Clinton is trying to correct the record.

My Tribute To Those Who Fly At Night To Save Lives

Sat, 06/18/2016 - 00:29

These ORNGE air ambulances are a familiar sight in my neighbourhood, taking off or coming into land at the Toronto Island Airport.

And I like having them around, because my heroes are those who risk their lives to try to save the lives of others.

But three years ago one of them crashed in northern Ontario.

And it couldn't be a more tragic or more Canadian story.

Justin Trudeau and the Un-Googling of Stephen Harper

Fri, 06/17/2016 - 06:57

As you probably know I have been extremely pleased by the systematic way Justin Trudeau and his Liberals have been demolishing Stephen Harper's foul legacy.

Scrapping his monuments, deep sixing his fascist crime bills, taking out the garbage, and improving our image in the eyes of the world.

And in that regard this is another excellent move.

Donald Trump and the Ask The Gays Outrage

Fri, 06/17/2016 - 02:18

As if it hasn't been a brutal enough week for the LBGT community. So many deaths, so much grief.

And so much anger over the way people like Donald Trump are using their tragedy and their pain to try to hurt others.

By whipping up hatred against Muslims, Mexican-Americans, refugees and others, while ignoring the hatred that killed their brothers and sisters. Homophobia, the beast that lives in so many.

So as you can imagine, this was like adding insult to injury.

The Amazing Youth Vote and How the Con Media Got It Wrong

Thu, 06/16/2016 - 05:33

About a year before the last election I decided the most useful thing I could do was to try to get as many young Canadians to vote as I could.

So together with many other people and organizations all over the country, I set out to convince them that if they didn't vote our country might die.

And their future could die with it.

And although I knew from the election results that it did work, now it's official.
