Forecast: Grim With Heavy Chances Of Losing Country

Still insanely busy, but I just can't remain silent on the current electoral campaign ...

I mean, the ongoing electoral campaign that began months ago (you know, before everyone actually proclaimed that *now* we're running elections?) - but I digress.

In any case, polls still tend toward two most likely outcomes: a CPC minority again, or an actual CPC majority.

Hopefully soon I'll expand my opinion on this. However, I would just reiterate that:

1) Harper and his Harpies are Christian fundamentalists;
2) Conservatism nowadays is only about promulgating/advancing/imposing by any means necessary (through lies, deceit, cheating, fearmongering, mendacity, authoritarianism) a fundamentalist Christian agenda (just look to the south of the border, folks), including a veritable Theocracy;
3) Conservatism nowadays is only about pandering to Big Corporations, Big Energy, Big Whatever, and the rich, because these peoples/entities do not care what system of government they find themselves in - as long as they stay rich and/or continue to do whatever the hell they want, whenever they want and however they want ... provided of course that the rest of us always foot the bill while reaping little - if anything - of the benefits.

And yet, and yet ...

These SoBs will still be elected to government by us Canuckleheads - whether as a minority or majority one.

In the case of the former, expect more or less the same non-governance we've been having since 2006, including cuts in everything secular (including science and innovation, services to women, etc.), all the while favoring the rich and ludicrously rich, as the rest of the world scratch their heads in bewilderment, asking more than ever "what is this country and what have they done with Canada?". In between, the three other twits (Layton, Ignatieff and Duceppe) will keep on playing their triangulating games that keep enabling a minority Harper government to function as a majority one.


In the case of the latter, then Canada as a separate nation and sovereign identity from the USA will quicken its descent into extinction ... and all will be lost for good.


So, go ahead my fellow Canadians - do what you have been doing since 2006 and keep making our country sink further into irrelevance and oblivion - all thanks to your laziness, intellectual sloth and abhorrent lack of civic responsibility.

In other words - take off, eh?

I only wish this was an actual April Fool's prank ...

  1. Damn, blogspot pulled an April 1st prank on me.

    It rejected my long rant on the stupidity of voters.

  2. Hey Boss! Nice to see you post! Too bad the topic is so dire. Image, image, image. Hopefully four weeks is long enough to convince non-thinking Canadians that harper is just, well, not the right pick for Canadian Idol this time around.

    Ignatieff is running a very good campaign, but it may be too late.

  3. BY: not Blogspot fault ... blame it on throttling ;-)

    Besides, how many posts and for how long have I been disserting about voter lazyness et al. (i.e. "Teh Cancer on the Body Democratic")?

    900ftJ: it is indeed too late ... he was too busy before, triangulating on and on. Like Stéphane Dion before him. The LPC needs to Wake Teh Fuck Up.

    So does the NDP, btw ...

    But again - it's too late already ... sadly enough.

    Mea culpa, mea culpa, vox populi ...

  4. Pierre, you did hit it Bang On!! We should have spoken a couple of years ago... maybe we could of done something ;) Such Cdn apathy - which in a way Cdns deserve what they get... then on the other hand those that did do research on SH/REFORM and their true political policies don't deserve this ;) Regardless, Canadians need to wake-up and unite together to see and bring down Stephan Harper and his Reform cronies for what they represent - Totalitarian State. This Government's intention is to divide and conquer those who are with him, and those who stand against them. Unless Cdns recognize and acknowledge their lethargy in this Democratic Hijacking, we are doomed to be ruled by these 'evil men'. Plato knew this over 2000 years ago, we learned this in our own recent history 70 years ago... How can we possibly allow History to keep repeating itself with this knowledge? KayVee1000

    1. It's all about intellectual slot & slavery to instant gratification; in other words: incompetence of the part of citizens. I've blogged/opined too many times on this very theme, so I won't put up links here, lest my reply takes a whole page! (lol) ;-)
