Point Blank vs Pointless
Just a quick note about the Senate-Harper scandal.
I’ve seen news about police officers that have shot innocent, unarmed civilians point blank and their punishment seems to be little more than a slap on the wrist, usually a suspension with pay.
Senators? Penalized and suspended without pay.
This is basically a directive from the PMO, despite the fact that the PMO is not supposed to be able to exert influence on the Senate.
So … why the rush, why the panic, why the insistence to silence the Senators that have stuffed their gills on public funds?
Threats of alienation seem a logical step, but it will only infuriate the Senators. ALL of them.
