I don't want a coalition as much as I want to defeat this government and defeat them in an election.
I want to see the ads with Harper wagging his middle finger in our faces with the "no recession comments", and the "great deals on stock out there" comments. Just that image alone - Harper leaned back - slumped in his chair - poking a sharp stick into sensible Canadians' eyes, would be enough to smack him back to Cochrane, AB, where he belongs (yeah, he doesn't live in his "own" riding either).
My previous posts about where we should spend (going back to last year) - highways, bridges, rail transit, TCH twinning, universities, hospitals, etc. still apply (even more so right now). Just where does Joe Public think these things will come from - if not from government? Even P3s cost all levels MOST of their prices.
Time for Canada to WAKE THE F@CK UP!!! Conversely, we can sit in front of our 65" flat screens, remote in hand, chompin' on the Timbits and large coffee we just did our thrice-daily Tim's run for (adding to the health care crisis, as we did so), while we watch piped in American crap ("reality" programming and FOX "news"), and read our American celebrity magazines, while our kids play "shoot 'em up" video games in the basement, forgetting the human skills of communication and reading...
I watched a rather funny spoof of the US a while back - called "Idiot Nation". I think it is an extreme, but rather descriptive of how far "stupid culture" can take us. We just need people like Harper, the Bushies, and the rest of the NeoCon generation to keep dumbing-down the discourse...
The dumbing down stops intelligent people from questioning. It stops intelligent people from being heard, and it prevents intelligent solutions from being conceived. Conservative governments have been notoriously poor financial managers, and even less capable of pulling Canada out of a recession. The only "fix" they think they know is "tax cuts". That's their solution to everything: Economy is slowing down - tax cut. Public funds are running low - tax cut. Your child can't find a school? Tax cut. Waiting in line at the hospital? Tax cut. Kids sick? Tax cut. Constipated Conservative? Tax cut.
Time for intelligent people to stand up and take Canada back from the brink. Time to give Harper the boots... We have the momentum. We have the Leader. We have the Team. We have the ideas. We have the capability. We can do it.
