And You Cons Vote For Them Because …?

Posted on by 0 comment
This is all quoted from someone named Adam-Troy Castro:
An anguished question from a Trump supporter: “Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?”
The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters – the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don’t…
That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought “Fine.”
That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, “Okay.”
That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, “No problem.”
That when he made up stories about seeing muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, “Not an issue.”
That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn’t care, you chirped, “He sure knows me.”
That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, “That’s cool!”
That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw.
That when you heard him brag that he doesn’t read books, you said, “Well, who has time?”
That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn’t commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, “That makes sense.”
That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, “Yes!”
That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man’s coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, “What a great guy!”
That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, “Thumbs up!”
When his $1T tax cut turned out to be a $2T cut for the 1% and a $1T tax hike on the middle class, you said “We will make adjustments. “
That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, “That’s the way I want my President to be.”
That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they’re supposed to be regulating and you have said, “What a genius!”
That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, “That’s smart!”
That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, “That makes sense.”
That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, “falling in love” with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, “That’s statesmanship!”
That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids. has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas – he explains that they’re just “animals” – and you say, “well, ok then.”
That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise.
What you don’t get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it’s also…hear me…charitable.
Because if you’re NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are *less* flattering.

King Harper’s Toxic Touch Is Back?

Posted on by 0 comment

It seems everything that Stephen Harper puts his fingers on quickly turns to rot.

This makes me glad.

The recent and growing scandal in Alberta concerning vote fraud and manipulation follow’s Stephen Harper’s classic pattern. There’s no direct link – he was always too good at not getting caught – but it seems there’s a circle of friends that are going to cause of lot of problems for his buddies as he tries to worm his way out of affairs in his favourite Western province.

What this means for the outcome of Alberta’s election, who knows, but we know this: Albertans had better be on alert and avoid voting for the crooked Cons (or those that Cee Pee).

New Zealand Terrorist Attack Show Scheer’s True Colour: Yellow

Posted on by 0 comment

This article captures my sentiment right now about Andrew Scheer.

Yesterday’s TERRORIST attack in New Zealand on Muslim people in their house of faith is a despicable act.

Not acknowledging it as a terrorist attack is even more vile.

Andrew Scheer and his Yellow Jacket Neon Nazi friends continue to show their pathetic disdain for entire segments of our society.

The Anti-Racist Canada site tracked a number of the comments that flooded the Yellow Vest Canada stream. It’s sickening.

But just a few weeks ago, there was Andrew Scheer – leader of Canada’s Conservative Party – backing up the Yellow Vest Neon Nazis at a rally in Ottawa. He knowingly supported the ‘United We Roll’ protest, a thinly veiled program organized by the Yellow Vests. A protest rally that included known Nazis like Faith Goldy, who want a return to white privilege.

I’m not a big fan of the Prime Minister and all the bullshit that’s coming to light daily from his office, but given Scheer’s support for this group, perhaps the leadership of Canada should turn the tables and be calling for Scheer’s resignation.

Association with these groups invites VERY treacherous times upon ALL Canadians.

Also, in this light, any support for this kind of vocal demand for the death to members of our society, including our democratically elected leader, should be seriously questioned. If you’re a Conservative, what are you doing to remove this madness from your party?

And the CBC: shame on you. Not calling out Scheer and his support for the Yellow Vests and other racist movements is an embarrassment to us all and enables this behaviour.

My Two-Cents on Canada’s Political Quandary

Posted on by 0 comment

I don’t think we’ll ever truly know what happened behind closed doors with Canada’s Prime Minister’s Office, various cabinet offices and the lobbyists of SNC-Lavalin.

We have heard many versions of ‘my truth’, all of it pointing to a simple concern: we are experiencing the country’s worst human resources issue.

Or communication breakdown.

Requests were made, requests were misinterpreted, integrity called into question because certain actors felt there was undue pressure and so on …

I don’t mean to belittle the bravery of so many important players for speaking up about the situation … I really don’t. However, most of the situation feels very much like a ‘Canadian situation’, where everyone is polite about the issues and say sorry along the way.

Call it what you will, but it’s definitely not worth throwing the Canadian political system with the bath water, so to speak.

BUT … Andrew Scheer and his Con Media are going to keep pushing the so-called ‘hot buttons’ even though they’re all very lukewarm to tepid.

Through all of this, the easily misguided and quick-to-temper periphery of voters, especially the Neon-Nazis, has already decided that all of this nonsense is the last straw (even though they had made up their minds long ago that harm must come to Justin Trudeau). Junior must go.

I think a growing range of ‘average’ Canadian voters will start to feel the same, fatigue setting in, willing to take a chance on Sheer.

This is frightening. Rob Ford harnessed that madness and won the Ontario election, despite all of the evidence against him. And evidence that continues to grow against his government’s best intentions for the Ontario public.

Soooo … now it’s decision time.

I don’t want this to be the reality, but the reality is that the Liberals are taking a hit and JT definitely is no longer being seen as a credible leader. Other MPs and cabinet members are coming forward with what seem to be honest claims about his inability to lead.

I feel this leaves the Liberals with 3 choices:

  1. Justin Trudeau resigns. He doesn’t open things up for a leadership review. He resigns.
  2. They appoint an interim leader that will deflect the blows and possibly even clean house a little.
  3. The Liberals vote for Chrystia Freeland to run the show as their leader in the 2019 election. I would probably even give the Liberals money if they chose this route.

BUT … they’d have to commit to a couple of things first to get me fully on board:

  1. Make even a modest, half-assed effort to balance the budget to be delivered 2 weeks from now.
  2. Re-introduce electoral reform, returning to the promise of 2015 being the last ‘First Past the Post’ election.

Canadians are sick of the bullshit and want a government that’s no going to play the same old games with lobbyists, special interest groups and corporate cronies.
