Stephen Harper and the Little Killer

15 hours 57 min ago

When most people think of climate change they probably think of images like this one.

A scorched earth, starving people, and wars over water.

But when I think of climate change I also think of this little killer.

Rona Ambrose and the Con Pipeline Hysteria

Sat, 02/06/2016 - 05:00

By the way Rona Ambrose and the Con zombies have been clamouring for the Energy East pipeline to be built NOW, you might think that if it isn't we're all doomed.

Even though that's nonsense. And considering the state of the planet one might argue that the opposite is the case.

So I'm glad to see that Justin Trudeau is telling her ghastly oil pimps to stop playing politics or chill out.

The Demolishing of Stephen Harper's Legacy (Continued)

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 22:10

I can only imagine how Stephen Harper must be feeling as he watches his foul legacy slowly being demolished.

But it can't be pretty, and it must be painful. 

Everything he built is being knocked down, and so soon after he was defeated.

Barely two weeks ago he had to look on helplessly as plans for his massive memorial to himself in the heart of Ottawa were scrapped. 

And today it was the turn of the Mother Canada or Mother Harper monument to feel the sting of the wrecking ball...

Michael Harris On the Con Smearing of Justin Trudeau

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 06:01

I was glad to see Justin Trudeau have the courage and the decency to visit Alberta, a province where so many Cons hate him with an intensity that borders on insanity.

I was happy to see him provide Rachel Notley with some badly needed support, and reassure the many suffering people in that stricken province, and the devastated oil industry, that help is on the way.

“I’m going to continually highlight that we’re all in this together as Canadians – that Alberta contributed tremendously to Canada’s growth over the past decade. And now that we’re facing challenging times here in Alberta, Canada will be there for them,” Mr. Trudeau told reporters.

So imagine how I felt to see the Con media in that province attack Trudeau like a pack of rabid zombies.

Lisa Raitt and the Foul Legacy of Stephen Harper

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 02:37

You might think that Lisa Raitt would have learned her lesson, when she put out this big shiny poster about two months ago.

Only to have it greeted with jeers, howls of laughter, and calls that she be arrested for lying like a thief.

Or a Con artist.

But no, sadly it seems she didn't learn a thing. And she is shameless.

For there she was again yesterday peddling the same foul myth...

The Oily Madness of the Con Queen Rona Ambrose

Thu, 02/04/2016 - 05:50

If Rona Ambrose doesn't stop viewing her job as both interim Con Queen AND the new chief spokeswoman for Big Oil, sooner or later somebody is going to tell her she should go pump gas for them.

Because every Question Period, no matter what's happening in the country and the world, she leads off with some kind of oily question. 

One day she's flogging the Energy East pipeline, the next day she's raving about a carbon tax. 

And the problem for Rona and her Cons is that she isn't very good at it. Or good at anything.

Justin Trudeau and the Politics of Empathy

Thu, 02/04/2016 - 01:30

I thought Justin Trudeau's question and answer session with ten so-called ordinary Canadians the other night on the CBC, was a pretty decent little TV show.

Another pleasant sign that our country is starting to look like Canada again, after the muzzled darkness of the Harper years.

And I certainly didn't think that it would offend anybody.

But then I hadn't counted on the Con media, or the outrage of Tasha Kheirridin.

David Suzuki: Stephen Harper Should Be Jailed

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 14:33

As you know I've long believed that Stephen Harper has got away with murder, and should be put on trial for his many crimes against Canada.

And for his crimes against the planet.

So I'm really happy to see that David Suzuki also believes that Harper should be jailed

Groundhog Harper and the Latest Monstrous Con Scandal

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 01:42

It's just as well Stephen Harper didn't choose to emerge yesterday from the hole where he has been hiding for most of the winter.

For it was Groundhog Day, and he probably would have felt like all those other poor furry creatures awoken so rudely from their hibernation.

Blinking in the bright TV lights, and being asked to explain why his campaign prediction that sunny economic days were ahead, could have been so horribly wrong. 

Or even worse for Great Furry leader, having to answer questions about this act of Con bestiality.

The Day Jason Kenney Disgraced Himself. Again.

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 03:47

Jason Kenney has disgraced himself, or made a fool of himself, many times during his long and sordid political career.

He has gone after the human rights of women, gay people, Muslims, and most recently helpless refugees, as only a religious fanatic and a full fleshed Con bigot could. 

He once accused Justin Trudeau of trying to flood our neighbourhoods with junkies and hookers.

And then of course there was the foreign workers fiasco, where after causing the problem, he claimed he was the solution.

But yesterday had to be one of his most disgraceful days ever.

Justin Trudeau and the Very Different Prime Minister

Mon, 02/01/2016 - 06:26

It's hard to believe that Justin Trudeau has now been in power for just over a hundred days.

For although I'm sure it seems longer than that to him, it still seems to me like  yesterday that he brought down Stephen Harper's foul  Con regime.

I'm still celebrating.

And in that short time Trudeau already has quite a list of achievements.

The Republican Nightmare and the Canada Party

Mon, 02/01/2016 - 02:44

Well today is Iowa Caucus day in America, and I must admit I'm a little concerned about the mental state of many of our neighbours, and where they might be going.

Because in their current fevered state ANYTHING could happen.

And to make matters worse I'm also worried about being horribly embarrassed. 

For having confidently predicted that Donald Trump would NOT bring fascism to America.

Because he's too much of a blustering dickhead...

The Killing of Sammy Yatim: Should Another Cop Be Charged?

Sun, 01/31/2016 - 04:12

It's been almost a week since the Toronto police officer James Forcillo was found guilty of the attempted murder of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim. 

Even though he killed him, and it was murder.

And now there are calls for another police officer to be charged for what he did to Yatim after he was shot.

Rex Murphy: Who Needs An Environmental Review?

Sun, 01/31/2016 - 02:07

In my last post I argued that the CBC should fire the Con clown Rex Murphy, for promoting the Energy East pipeline.

While being paid by Big Oil to give speeches glorifying their dubious achievements.

And for attacking Justin Trudeau, and acting like Rona Ambrose's spokesman, on the CBC's flagship news show The National.

Well now in the National Post, Murphy has taken his deranged campaign one step further.

The Con Clown Rex Murphy's Ghastly Anti-Trudeau Campaign

Sat, 01/30/2016 - 02:48

Once upon a time I used to fly though the air like Peter Pan in search of the remote control, whenever the ghastly Rex Murphy popped up on my big TV.

In a desperate attempt to change the channel, before his oily fumes started pouring out of every orifice, and before that scary bulging eye started following me around the room.

But now I just sit there staring numbly at the screen and wondering: why is that Con teabagger on the CBC? Is this Canada or Trumpville?

And this is just the latest reason why I think he should be fired.

Dracula Harper and the Con Assault On Our Democracy

Fri, 01/29/2016 - 05:57

A lot of people in this country seem to believe that when we defeated Stephen Harper we sent the Con vampire to his political coffin, with a wooden stake through his heart.

But they couldn't be more wrong.

The monster may be hiding in the shadows, but he's very much alive, or undead.

And the Cons are still the Harper Party...

Jesus Harper and the End of The Office of Religious Freedom

Fri, 01/29/2016 - 02:17

Stephen Harper likes to call himself a Christian, and some of his supporters have been known to call him Jesus Harper.

But both claims couldn't be more absurd or more blasphemous.

Harper is too evil to be a Christian. It is just an act designed to appeal to his monstrous satanic base.

And now it seems that his hollow instrument, the so-called Office of Religious Freedom, is about to be destroyed.

The Grotesque Hypocrisy of the Con Clown Candice Bergen

Thu, 01/28/2016 - 23:54

Like her leathery leader Rona The Vulture Ambrose, Candice Bergen likes to dress in black. 

And with good reason.

She is one of the nastiest Cons in the House of Commons.

Stephen Harper, the Harper Cat, and the Latest Porky Scandal

Thu, 01/28/2016 - 03:40

As you know I have been frantically searching for Stephen Harper all over Canada and the United States.

And I've even adjusted my missing wanted poster to reflect how he looked when he was spotted outside a Shake Shack in Las Vegas. 

With a weird smile on his face, several days of stubble, and a baseball cap pulled down over his nose.

But so far no luck.

And no sadly this was not him...

Rona Ambrose and the Not So New/Nouveau Harper Party

Wed, 01/27/2016 - 02:38

Ever since she was elected interim Queen of the Cons, Rona Ambrose has been claiming that they are the new/nouveau Cons, not the shattered remnants of the Harper Party.

But now that Parliament has returned that is turning out to be just another Big Lie.

With the Cons trying to turn our Parliament into a fascist circus again.

By attacking the Liberals like bats out of hell...
