Staying on
Extended Vacation

This one is too big for my junk! Can I exchange it?

Spiteful Stevie Harper is where he prefers to spend the majority of his time, far, far away from Parliament Hill. Currently he is enjoying his annual summer trip to the north, and of course once again pretending that he gives a shit about the north and the folks that live there. Actually, it is a good way to get away from the odious trio of Brazeau, Wallin and the Duff Man and embarrassing questions about his judgement in appointing them to the Senate in the first place.  Oh yeah, and while he is 4000+ kilometers from Ottawa, he thought it would be a good time to announce that he and his cock-us needs yet more vacation (or time to write up mega omnibus bills) so he will ask the GG to prorogue the senior House of Infamy, yet again as is his recurring desire.

That's cute, he is gonna "ask" the Governor General for permission, for which I guess he will have to pull Mr. Johnston out of his pocket.  I still am flummoxed with wondering why Ms. Jean allowed him to proroque the first time, but never wonder about Mr. Johnston, who does Stevie's bidding be it to close the house or engineer a cover-up for Lyin' Brian Mulroney.

As the inimitable Dr Dawg points out, in spite of the fact that:
 ...his government may have killed training for Land Claims Groups, slashed funding for Inuit health research, decimated the national Inuit organizations, thrown Nunavut fisheries quotas out the window in favour of ridings with more votes, ignored the tragic spike in Inuit suicide, refused to honour its Land Claims commitments, slashed education funding for Inuit youth, repudiated its obligations under the Inuit Language Act, mocked Arctic environmental concerns, failed to meet its Inuit hiring and training agreements, and reneged on its northern housing commitments.
Not to mention that his much heralded ice breakers just might be launched by 2050, and he wants to spend billions on planes (the JSF-35) that will be useless in patrolling the frozen north and protecting the Canadian sovereignty he claims to cherish he has made the commitment to:
   spend more than half a million dollars on a Stealth Snowmobile to…ummm….that will…uhhh….
It should come as no surprise that as soon as Stevie was on the ground and opened his mouth, he started spouted highly partisan attack style rhetoric such as congratulating the voters for electing him to "care for the country." In spite of the fact that he is on a tax payer funded junket, it is difficult to not interpret this "vacation" as a pre-election campaign swing through the vast northern lands. According to PM Harper rips opposition on 1st stop of North tour :
In a highly partisan speech to supporters, delivered against the backdrop of a summer of eye-popping revelations of Senate misspending, Harper took aim at both of his opponents.

"What I am telling you is that with the NDP and Liberals, what you see is what you get; dangerous ideas and vacuous thinking that would reverse all of the progress we have made," he said, ticking off bread and butter Conservative themes such as the economy, and law and order.

It was a direct appeal to the party's base, which has been badly shaken by the spending scandal, which has cost the Conservatives three senators, launched multiple police investigations and shows no sign of abating anytime soon.
Warned of economic calamity

He warned of economic calamity should the Conservatives be defeated in 2015, claiming the Opposition had "tax and spend proposals so extreme they would make the worst European budget look solid in comparison."
It is an embarrassment to Canadians that this corpulent corporate puppet represents us in the north and anywhere else on the planet he is so dedicated to destroying for the greed of his masters on Wall, Bay and Howe streets!

News of Other Autocrats, in the Stevie Mode

The recently deceased father of the current leader of North Korea Kim-Jong un, Kim-Jong  il was apparently a very good golfer - though he only played once. According to a story, in the Telegraph, about the son announcing a new ski resort for the country that can't even feed its people. 
 Kim Jong-il first picked up a golf club in 1994, at North Korea’s only golf course, and shot a 38-under par round that included no fewer than 11 holes in one.

Satisfied with his performance, he reportedly immediately declared his retirement from the sport
