The Opposition parties have backed themselves into a corner though. Kind of stuck with an election now where the big issue is going to be the timing of the election - not the one they wanted to fight. Another minority coming up and this time they'll be stuck with it. We'll all wake up pissed off that we had to go through a campaign with no significant change, which means that they won't be able to force another election for at least 18 months.

Belinda Stronach for PM!!

Our armed forces is dismantled to the point of not even being able to deploy, we cannot even protect ourselves from natural disasters at this point, if something like Katrina happened to Canada (say a tidal wave from an offshore earthquake, or a terrorist attack or something), we would not even be able to help our selves. The idiocy of the centralist policy of suggesting that Canada is such a bunch of nice guys we do not need a military is beyond foolhardy, it is treasonous to leave our nation so pitifully defended, not that our armed forces do not do an excellent job, but they are desperately under funded.

Just because the Conservative Reform Alliance Party is pro-military does not make it pro-American stupidity. Check out the official party platform, no where does it say they are going to legalize beating up gay people or sanctioning illegal wars. I ain’t pro-conservative, but I am certainly anti-Fiberal, WHERE THE HELL DID MY BILLIONS IN TAX DOLLARS GO!!! I mean if I cheat on my taxes I get to go to pound you in the a$$ jail, what do all these crooks at the top get, naughty naughty, off to the Camyen islands with all the other charming mafia bad guys. This is adjusted for inflation the largest dollar value scandal in the history of North American politics.

Where is the outrage?

@ dapi_editor:


a politician who appears to be a card carrying member of the KKK


Don't you mean. "a politician whom the Liberal party has smeared to make it seem as though...{he is..} ..'a card carrying member of the KKK' .." ?

not difficult to see where your allegiance lies..

@ the gent above.. Don't you love it when RevCan prosecutes some waitress for 'tax evasion' (possibly not declaring all her tips)- to frighten all the other sheep into dutifully turning over half their income to the Ottawa swine..

..but gives a 'special dispensation' to the Bronfmans to move a few $ billion offshore ("one-time special deal" ) ;)

I think the "conversion" of Belinda to the Liberal Party was a set-up from the beginning..always was going to happen..make a bigger splash because of the 'defection' from the Conservatives..

after all "Daddy" (you know - the guy who got her the job as "President" of Magna International - Frank Stronach) was a Liberal..ran for MP (but was defeated..)

don't think Belinda would do much without Daddy's pre-approval..

@ dapi-editor:


a political party that would draft your *ss and send it to Iraq?


You could ease up on the caffeine - and the theatrics.. I doubt very much that Canada would introduce a "draft" for the armed forces - unless there was possibly another situation like WW II..

Probably wouldn't send soldiers to Iraq, or if they did, a 'token' force, a few hundred people at most.

The US has not had the "draft" for around 30 years..but many European and Asian countries (supposedly 'enlightened', still do..)


BTW do you know it only costs US$200 to build a Viao in China?


Amazing what you can do when you can force political and other prisoners to work as slaves, isn't it?

And Tianenmen Square was a shining example of how lovely the Chinese government is..

the references to Harper supposedly being in the KKK are typical of the self-proclaimed "open-minded, non-prejudiced, liberal" denizens of eastern Canada, who then turn around to label "every Albertan" as a "racist redneck"...

stupid, ignorant, ill-informed labelling..

IF we were to be honest, let's look at the fact that "la belle province" (Quebec) may well be the most racist and hateful place in Canada..(non-PC to say it, but..)

all this talk of "le pur lain".. sounds like they'd like to do a little "ethnic cleansing" a la the former Yugoslavia, doesn't it?

only in Quebec could a leading politician ( Jacques Parizeau) speak of "money and the ethnic vote"..

(a veiled reference to "Jews") as being the reason for his defeat, and be widely and loudly applauded..

No surprise about the show-downs with natives at Oka, Kahnewake, Kahnesetake, etc..

Hatred for the natives in Quebec is deep as most have the temerity to speak English preferentially over French..

both Parizeau & Bouchard seem a little hypocritical, champions of the French-Canadian, yet choosing blonde American brides..lol

^^ good points..

BTW, did you think "Tianenmen" was cool?

too many 'students' anyway, machine-gunning a few thousand of them doesn't matter..

we can overlook little things like that when dealing with such a large market and the potential to make $$$$$$$ , right?? :)

Ah, yea, China's "cool"; we could make a big to-do about boycotting S. Africa over apartheid becase it was a small market and wouldn't/didn't cost much $$ anyway..

symbolic, though, made us feel good & holier-than-thou, no??

Money does tend to TRUMP principles, doesn't it??

@ dapi_editor:




Big difference, the S African Government had a Tiannamen Square sized incident on a weekly basis.



"On a weekly basis" ? 52 X per year? "Tianenemen Square-sized" ??

methinks you are prone to exaggeration, sir..

There was the Sharpsville incident in March, 1960..very bad, I agree..

that was 72 deaths, not thousands..

weekly? do you have any documentation of this 'fact' ?

Let us not forget that the Ohio National Guard also murdered students at Kent State U in 1970, probably with high-level approval..

When students at Jackson State U in Jackson, Mississippi, protested those killings..police responded by opening fire, killing and wounding several more students..

@ dapi_editor:

BTW, what do you think of Quebecois racist bigots?

Do you feel it is more "acceptable" for them, because they are "protecting their culture and language" ?

Sounds like the argument Milosevic would make about his "ethnic cleansing" program in the former Yugoslavia..or the one the nazis made at Nuremberg..

Probably about as much chance as any party other than the LDP had in Japan up til 1990 or so?

Let's face it, Canada is destined to become a one-party state..

Well, hey it worked for the USSR and the PRC and the GDR and many others for a long time..

The trouble really is Canadian parliment has become a trinary affair Lib, crap, and block, well 4 if you include the ndp, but they are a distant 4th. Look even now the polls say we are headed for another minority, it is all about who is going to have to get in bed with the ndp, which is hilarious really. The block has acheived its goal, Canadian parlimentry schizephrenia.

so given the Gomery report exonerates paul martin, and there are, to me, no other choices....better the devil you know than the devil you are afraid of.....


The same Paul Martin, who was Finance Minister at the time found NOT guilty..Incredible..

If this were the USA, he would have been thrown out of office by now.

Remember, "O.J." was also found 'Not Guilty'...*AHEM*

Actually, they DO, but, they are tinted..VERY darkly....

This brings to mind, the old fable: "The Emporer's New Clothes".

Yes, what better way to TRY and throw suspiscions, than to point the finger ANYwhere else but at one's self.
