Onward & Upward in the New Year

"I think he wanted to send a clear message to the Liberals and to the other opposition parties that he really does intend to act as though he has a majority."

I believe shutting down what has become a clown show in Ottawa was the correct thing to do. Almost everything the CPC did would initiated partisan attacks from the opposition. They (the opp) new their buddies in the senate would dump on and delay any order that made it through to make the CPC look bad. In the new session with a conservative majority in the senate perhaps the house of government will return to some form of effectiveness.

Whenever Chretien pulled the upper hand on his opponents, ie by proroging parliament, he was lauded and called "scappy", back-alley fighter, genius etc.

When Harper pulls his brilliant stunts, on the background of a minority none the less, he gets called a tyrant, and just the other day someone compared his actions to those of Hitler's coup in the German Reichstag.

These comparisons are not being made by political opponents, of whom such derision would be expected.

These comparisons are being made by the mainstream media.

"These comparisons are being made by the mainstream media." Langmann..no truer words were ever spoken. I am amazed at how often their lies, exagerations and misrepresntations are blindly believed and so rarely challenged. I heard an enviro claim the oil sands contributed 35% of the worlds emissions. In response...silence! People are tuning out for one reason only...they're tired of being lied to by a manipulative media.

who is actually more to blame here, though... the manipulative media... or the sheeple?

The naive and trusting sheeple or the media who presume to be more perceptive and intelligent than the rest of us???... I guess both, but the sheeple need to wake up and start sifting throght the BS in order to find the truth. otherwise, we're doomed.

The sheeple are not interested in waking up, lets face it they might have to think for themselves instead of being spoon feed what to think. Now that could just interrupt important stuff like Cake Boss,planning their next trip to Cuba, football, hockey or a very urgent text. Not going to happen unless they are dragged kicking and screaming to face reality.

it's true... you get the kind of government you deserve.

as for the msm... as long as you buy their papers, or watch their tv peopaganda-fests without complaint... it's on you.

it's past time for canadians to speak up.

Grey Lady is right, they have to be dragged kicking and screaming. Problem is while they are being dragged, they are being sedated by the MSM along the way.

Terrorists blow up buildings and people: don't worry its our fault for causing the problems, be nice and it will all go away.

Economy goes to shit because bankers and government work together to lend to risky people: don't worry its due to lack of legislation, throw money at it, and it goes away.

One day quite literally there's going to be no money left to steal from the taxpayer or some dipwit will light off a nuke in New York and then maybe people will wake up.

Harper was elected on the back of the a scandal that robbed Canadians of millions. He promised that he would be ethical and that the importance of parliament would always come first. What a fucking opportunistic. Too bad there's nobody else to vote for.
