The slow creep of GOP style fascism

Just when exactly, did Canada and Britain start working off the GOP playbook? Which way was I looking when Steven Harper banned the media from documenting returning casualties from abroad, when he began hand picking the questions he was to be asked by the press? When he gave up Canada’s position as an international leader in the Kyoto talks?

Who allowed the new English anti terror laws that allow the jailing of any person for days without cause and allow authors to be jailed if they are seen to be glorifying terrorism?

I watched the results the entire night during the last election, nearly every count in every riding, about 2/3rd’s of voters voted for left of center parties, but because of Canada’s multi party system and antiquated non transferable vote counting, in went the conservatives.

We know what this is all about. This is America getting what it wants from Canada again, come to think of it, the Kyoto waffling came around the same time Canada became the largest foreign supplier of crude to the USA.

I am sick and tired of this shit, the government is supposed to be working at the pleasure of the people, but time and time again the money wins out over popular opinion or logic. I will be writing letters, talking to people and blogging about it until you are thrown out and replaced by someone who won’t put the economy and America higher on the agenda than the environment and our Canadian Values.

Fuck you Harper. (If I’m still afforded the opportunity of free speech, that is. I’m sure CSIS will let me know if I’ve violated a terroristic thoughts law.)

Enough of that, watch this.

One more time before I do something worthwhile... promise.

Short and sweet... their penises, that is.

No comment.

Who can stop at two?

More videos, because I'm lazy.

Religious teachings at their best.

America, meet Glen Beck.

And then begin searching for your remote control.

Maybe I'm just hypersensitive because in my little paradise, you don't get the propoganda machine that is FOX news unless you subscribe to ultra mega cable, but this guy is a total asshole. Is this really the best you could do CNN? What, Nancy Grace not shrill enough for you? Lou Dobbs not racist enough? Paul Begala not enough of a douchebag?

You can't be serious. I could see doing something like this a couple of years ago, before Bush and everyone who supports him began looking like Andy Dick in a clown suit, but now?

Then again, maybe it is extremely clever because I can't stop watching him and screaming profanities at the screen.

Is this what you Americans have had to put up with all this time? My sincere condolences.

A glimmer of hope

A lot of the time, the lags between my posts have to do with my fatigue, or despair at the headlines. There hasn’t been much reason for me to smile at the news over the last few years.

Today I woke up, sick as a dog and called in to work, turned on the TV and got my first hope in years for the future of America. Like mostly all sane decisions to come out lately, it comes to us from the courts. Zacarias Moussaoui has been sentenced to life in prison, ruling out the death penalty for the government’s boogeyman.

The jury no doubt saw Moussaoui for what he was, a mentally disturbed terrorist wannabe, which is remarkable taking into account the noise created by the prosecution and the government.

And watch the nut job heads explode.

China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and… the United States. Those four countries are responsible for 94% of executions in the world. I may be inherently biased, because I believe that the death penalty isn’t applicable in any case, but is this really the company these right wingers want to keep?

If they really want to send a message to terrorists worldwide, maybe they should put some effort into tracking down those actually responsible for the attacks.

Way too busy lately.

Don't look at me though, just watch this repeadedly.

Colbert's balls must clack together when he walks.
