It is pretty easy to believe that Stevie Slime will be curled up with popcorn rooting for the Mittster tonight as he and the Kenyan Communist have their final debate in Boca Raton. Treason Steven won't be able to control his bladder in two weeks if the MittStake should happen to either win the election or with the help of KKKarl Rove and Diebold, steal it, if necessary. It is clear that in spite of the fact that Obama is hardly even a Democrat, much less a socialist, that our man (or boy?) Herr Harper would be much happier with a ReThuglican in the White House. Indeed there are many who think that all these decisions about Nexxan and other proposed foreign takeovers of Canadian resources are being punted down the road until Stevie and his Canadian Taliban know who will be in the White House next January.
I just posted two posts by Robin Mathews over at the Legislature Raids one of which discusses the Council of Canadians and their role in trying to protect Canadian sovereignty, a role abdicated apparently by both government and opposition since Lyin' Brian initiated the fire sale of Canada. Now it seems that Canadians themselves are being offered as serfs to our new Yankee or Chinese masters, or both.
The more recent post from Robin over at Mary's may seem somewhat extreme to some, but give your head a shake and consider how extreme are the policies that this excuse for a government under Stephen Harper are pursuing. In Dismembering Canada Mr. Mathews suggests that British Columbians, especially, might consider using the same referendum process that was supposed to eliminate the H.S.T., to leave a Confederation that is being set up to be run from Bejing, without representation from Canadians.
Also in my inbox this morning was a link to a short piece by Joshua Holland about how China built a factory, in China of course, for Mitt's former company Bain to ship American jobs ($14-$17 per hour w/benefits) in order to both hide profits, avoid taxes and pay wages of 99 cents to $1.35 per hour for twelve hour days.
Inside Bain's Chinese Sensata Factories, Where Workers Put in 12-Hour Days for $.99-$1.35 an HourOctober 20, 2012 |Mitt Romney has made Obama's out-of-context “you didn't build that” quote a central theme of his campaign. It's ironic, as Mitt Romney is going to profit just before the election when Bain-owned Sensata Technologies moves 170 high-tech jobs from Freeport, Illinois, to a plant in China built for the firm by the Chinese government.
Sensata enjoyed record revenues last year – this isn't about making the “hard choices” necessary to save a failing enterprise. The workers in Freeport have been working 24 hours a day, in three shifts. They make $14-17 per hour, with benefits........../snip
So I was thinking about the implications of a prime minister getting away with telling Parliament to do something indecent with the ceremonial mace and this naturally led me to imagine which figures from history best exemplify Stephen Harper....../snip
If Stephen Harper can open and close Parliament at will, and tell the honourable members of that institution that he will disclose to them what he wishes when he chooses, then he will have rolled back four centuries of parliamentary governance. He will be Charles I, circa 1635.
Now, I must admit I am an excitable fellow and this did strike me, on reflection, as being a bit over the top. So I called Errol Mendes, a law professor at the University of Ottawa and one of the country’s leading constitutional scholars. Have I lost it, I asked?
No, he said. You’re right.I really kinda wanted to check out the rest of the column over at the Citizen, but when I tried to access it I was told:
We’re sorry, the page you requested is not available.Oh well, I got the gist of the idea, and it is eerie the degree to which what is going on with the Mittster, with Stevie Slime and our own non-Premier Lady GagMe Christy Clark and China especially and the democratic deficit, marginalization of government itself other than the Head (or toilet in nautical jargon) and it's rule be fiat and imperial dictact seems almost seamless. I am comforted a bit when I recall what happened to Charles the First in 1649 though, because his reign of arrogance abruptly came to an end when his royal head was forcibly removed from the rest of his arseholish body. Perhaps Herr Harper should consider how so many who thought they could rule without the consent of the ruled wound up, it ain't always pretty!
The contempt that Harper and his Taliban have shown for Parliament doesn't begin to compare to the contempt I hold for him and his ilk!
We Get (Spam) Comments
Though I have the odd complaint here and there with Google and Blogspot, overall they do provide a good service at no cost (other than what they can gain from their data mining etc.) and their built in in-house spam detection/protection is pretty darn good. I either run or help manage a few blogs and at times spam comments can become a real problem. So far though I have been able to avoid subjecting my prospective commenters to an eye test, but have implemented a level of protection, one part of which is refusing to accept comments on older posts without moderation. Today though I got one for Mary's Legislature Raids that though I won't publish it there, on the post it was intended for, I will publish it here on the front page of the House of Infamy. It is just so appropriate, and if it coaxes anyone to go back and read Robin Mathews' post there from last November, so much the better!

Isn't that precious, that someone with a blog perhaps selling gazebos, gazebo kits or just some kind of phishing site (I won't find out cuz I ain't going there, well maybe I will on a public machine, but not my own) would try to sell/push/promote whatever they're pushing on a blogpost almost a year old because of Tony "Gazebos on the Border" Clement and John "I've got more spittle than anyone" Baird? I almost want to set up an RSS feed for the creep, of some kind of porn or something........
