I kind of forgot how much election time sucks. You've got all these politics tourists drifting in, super concerned about stuff after not giving a shit for years. And you've got all these bozos tripping all over themselves to hand things out. Does flying around the country making promises actually have an effect? I'm sick of it. I can't wait for this to be over.
This might be the final court loss for Steve. Their idiotic niqab ban has been overturned.
8.7 Billion was left unspent by government last year. Man. It's easy to balance a budget when you don't do anything.
Rick Hillier thinks Canada can bring in 50,000 refugees. Romeo Dallaire thinks that plan sucks. Figures we can handle 90,000.
More truth about refugees. 41st in per capita acceptance of refugees...not first.
Now Syria is a "Terrorist War Zone". Fuck that sounds scary. Also, with followers like these..."How many kids drowned in pools in Canada this past summer? Do you blame the government for that?" is what a Conservative heckler said to journalists trying to ask qeustions.
Now "proper security screening" is preventing us from being the white knights of the international community. Because all of the terrorists are planning on dropping flights full of refugees out of the sky.
Steve spouts nonsense in his Peter Mansbridge interview. And...somehow suggests there's too many refugees to worry about doing anything about it?
The Atlantic counters the Atlantic counter to the New York Times article.
I assumed this was somebody making some kind of political commentary about Stephen Harper...but no...his own campaign is slapping "24 Hour Surveillance" decals on his campaign signs. It's just insanely funny that nobody saw any problems with this.
Some background on the Australian dickface that the Cons have hired. He sounds terrible. Probably just as in touch with Canada as his bosses.
This was a story a few months ago, but now there are some actual details, and confirmation, that the Cons swapped gun legislation favours to gun nuts if they'd keep quiet about C-51.
"Is the Conservative Party buying likes on Facebook?" I'm thinking "Yes".
This is funny. I actually noticed the pages and pages of useless tweets when I tweeted at Cheryl Gallant that she sucks over her climate change denying infomercial.
Peter Kent has always been an idiot. And this is why I would be horrified if my parents were on Twitter. Why do Conservatives so quickly jump on these "check out these scary muslims!" tweet bandwagons?
Canadian troops have arrived at the proxy war in the Ukraine.
It would be delicious irony if the "Expats can't vote" enforcement inspired reams of expats to vote. Some have found a loophole to do just that. Show up in your old riding with proof of address and you're good to go.
Trudeau pointed out that some rich people use "small businesses" as tax loopholes. I don't have a problem with that.
The CRA is accusing KPMG of creating a tax fraud scheme.
I feel like Steve has his opinion backwards. "Anything but Conservative 'absolute disaster' for Canada: Harper"
Jesus. These ads are getting weird. "Stephen Harper isn't perfect, but when it comes to the economy, we can depend on him." What a stupid lady. Is she not watching the news?
What the fuck? Rupert Murdoch just bought National Geographic?
This is pretty great. The White House produced a video highlighting all of Dick Cheney's lies. As others pointed out though, it would have been better if they arrested him.
