Ok, Mr. Mayor... so you don't like Liberals...
But what if the by-election campaign in Kitchener-Waterloo collides with your important Canada Day long weekend at the cottage? Will you still be a coward and hide behind your disingenuous "family comes first" veil? Or will you be out knocking on doors?

"When we are desperately afraid, when chaos and disorder envelop life, when the world is reduced to a bitter struggle to get enough to eat and stay alive, the fragile 'civilized' veneer that coats our existence in times of prosperity, order and safety vanishes." - Chris Hedges
The decay continues.

The best way to confront terror and bigotry is by demonstrating and reinforcing a commitment to everything the extremists (of all stripes) loathe.
Looks like at least 40,000 Norwegians understand and believe that concept (and perhaps are also big fans of the West Wing?).

You want to worship a God...
You want to have elaborate parades on public streets every once in a while to celebrate a saint...
You want to wear religious garments to showcase your modesty and self-respect...
You want time off work because you are celebrating a holy date and you want to exercise your freedom of religion...
... sure, no problem.
But the indoctrination of the youth in this province with my tax dollars is uncool and unfair.

Why is everyone freaking out? America's forefathers got rid of slavery; therefore racism no longer exists; therefore Bachmann's latest comments are not racist in nature.
Seriously though, what is with stupid people constantly trying to reclaim this phrase and attempting to sell it as legitimate? It's not!
When will people stop using phrases (or pictures) to say what they actually mean about people and their ideas?

To all those who attempt to propogate the concept of "reverse discrimination" in Canada:
Despite the fact that mosques are being built, gay rights are being upheld, prayers are being allowed in your public schools, Jewish cemeteries remain a reality, and more languages are being spoken in your cities and towns... immigrants and minorities (of all kinds) are not taking over your country.
Fret not my white friends; you remain in fine form when it comes to real power in this great country of ours.

As of April 17, 2012 at 3:35pm, the last three topics coming from the last three press releases on the Conservative Party website are as follows:
I am still waiting for the Government of Canada to say something about the 30th anniversary of Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Nothing on the government website. Nothing on the Conservative Party website, except of course, an acknowledgment of (an important), yet different kind of anniversary.

Try this: ask an unbending lefty if he/she is 'for' international intervention in places like Libya or Syria. Sit back and watch them squeal their way to the most eloquent non-answer ever given.
Now try this: ask a rigid Conservative if he/she supports a woman's right to choose or a person's right to marry who they love. Sit back and watch them squeal their way to the most eloquent non-answer ever given.
It may even look something like this...
Thank you Ms. Smith, for reminding me why I remain scared shitless of those who attempt to govern from the political margins.

On April 17, Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms will celebrate its 30th birthday.
Surprised? Didn't know it was happening? Don't give a shit? That's fine... neither does Canada's Conservative government.

Yep, keep telling me that I am over-exaggerating the dangers of the Conservative social movements in the U.S. and in Canada...

It's one of the oldest rules in the book - if you treat them like unruly animals, they'll act like unruly animals.

This just in: Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, has apparently injured his back while throwing candy at this weekend's Easter parade. Hopefully he heals just in time to throw condoms out, from a float, during this year's Pride parade!
What? Too soon...?

Do any of my left-leaning friends feel like taking a trip to Syria? Perhaps you can try to convince the folks there that the answer to their problems is more toothless diplomacy...?

The collision between dogmatic secularists and unbending religiosity in Canada continues.

Back in April and May of last year, any Canadian who questioned the military purchase of the F-35s was labelled unpatriotic and "against our troops." Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, questioning your government isn't un-Canadian, it's a duty. And, it looks like all those treasonous individuals were right in questioning their government.
I am happy to see that the guy in this video below, is now changing his mind on what is to be the biggest military purchase in Canadian history. He owes us all an apology.
