Call and answer

I like Warren Kinsella. One of the reasons I like him is because he went for my open question, brought in the other side to weigh in, and now this allows us to fill in the blanks too. Oh, and he introduced me to Bob Rae, the next leader of the Liberal party!

Tweet the first:

Tweet the second:

Other potential tweets:

“Senate reform: can’t wait to pass legislation that has popular support by folks that have a democratic mandate from Canadians! The scotch budget, however, will remain.”

“Respect for the Alberta: Liberal-free since 2006. WK may return but has to wear black hat in the parade”

“When the ‘decade of darkness’ for the military re: Liberal investment is so far in the past, kids file it along with ‘moon landing’ and ‘Michael Jackson’ as crazy #$@* that happened that only our history books can really tell us about”

“When the Liberal party stops offering us out-of-touch humanities professors to feast upon, and tosses us a street-brawler like Jean Chretien or (oh please) Ruby Dhalla”

“When ‘Unity Crisis’ is mistaken as the name for an 80s revival band that covers Starship, rather than our recurring Liberal ballot headache”

What other things are you hopeful for in the future?

    I guess it's true what people are saying, cause none of this makes much sense. Just a jumble of mumbling. So that's what you get in return.

    Well, that is how to defend the Vacuous Plodder Stephen Harper. Never deal with issues, just obfuscate and berate. Stephen Harper has only himself to please. He has contempt for all Canadians, including his followers.

    Harper has an Abysmal Record, but he sure has faithful followers.

    kim, you are absolutely correct. And don't let recent polls fool you either. Those numbers are very temporary and the Harpercrites know it.

    As for his abysmal record it is actually worse than anyone really knows becasue of the cover up in the PMO. Their refusal to let the PBO do its job is a sure sign of cover ups.

    As for his faithful followers, you will note thye attack Iggy but never ever admt an error on their leaders part. He is obviously perfect and god like according to them. An election campaign is needed to uncover the poor management and fiscal hell we are in.

    For instance Harpo stated last week there would be no tax increases and lo and behold the Libs find a new $15BB payroll tax buried in spending estimates which is another cover up to hide the real deficit which I now believe to be well north of $60BB. Thewy were already running a defict last fall when Harpo said he would not have one. Liars are tories and vice versa.

    TORY TIMES ARE TOUGH TIMES.

    Oooh! Another match made in liberal heaven!

    But since you're new to this place, let me bring you up to speed.
    You know who just obfuscates and berates, to use your words?
    Your newfound soulmate.
    Enjoy each other's company. You're perfect for each other.

  • terry1

    Gabby, that post of yours was great obfuscation on its own. You are a true reformatory, no substance at all. LOL

  • Gabby in QC

    “You are a true reformatory” – and proud of it.
    As other conservatives have pointed out, the Conservatives are trying to reform the messes left over by previous governments. I know their efforts can't reform your twisted thinking – if one can call it thinking – but I'll take whatever the CP can manage to do.

    And dear Terry or whatever your name is, please don't bother replying. It really is tiresome reading your inanities. Thank you.

  • terry1

    Gabby, or whatever your name is or was, Please tell us more about the messes this bunch of clowns are cleaning up. I would like to hear your thoughts.

  • Omanator

    You are not alone. I am a fan too. I also wish a lot for Canada, most of all peace and common sense.
    Unfortunately common sense is still lacking for a lot of Canadians.

  • Omanator

    Amen to that. I find Terry's Garbage revolting. The man has no class. I wish we could bar him.
    I for one have participated less because of it.

  • terry1

    gee, I just olooked all through this blog and couldn't find any discussion about the Tory party checks for stimulus projects. I guess harpo has way too much money in his party's war chest and is giving some back. Did I get that right.

    Nor did I see anything about the accountability act being used to vet appointments of MP spouses into federal jobs or the senate. Must have missed that announcement by the accountability board……ad I assume it exists since legislationw as passed to create it.

  • terry1

    “Cleaning up government begins at the top.”

    Who said that?

    Stephen Harper did, that's who.

    We are waiting for the cleanup to start…………ah yes we need a liberal government to do that because Tories are sleazy.

  • terry1

    Since you are all holier than thou reformatories I hope confession is the next order of business:

    “This time it's coming a little bit early,” the Toronto-area Liberal MP said yesterday, referring to the apparent widely-held feeling in the Conservative Party that they're entitled to their entitlements – principal among them, replacing the maple leaf and the Government of Canada tag on oversized cheques with their own name and the Conservative Party logo. They should beware because nothing fires up voters more than being bribed with their own money.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    “But the Conservatives were elected to put an end to all that. Remember when Stephen Harper promised to replace a culture of entitlement with a culture of accountability? No? Apparently, neither does he.”
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    “The Conservative spin machine now says that the use of the logo was not endorsed by the party, which was not aware it was being used. This version of events asks us to believe that all these MPs came up with the giant cheque wheeze off their own bat. Since most Conservative backbenchers follow the old HMS Pinafore line of voting at their party's call and never thinking for themselves at all, this seems scarcely plausible.”
    ……………………………………………………………………………….
    This has the potential to do tremendous damage to the Conservatives. All the polling shows that their Achilles' Heel is the perception that they have a tendency to put their party's interests ahead of the country's.

    Yes, batb, PM Harper is the best PM we've had in decades and it shows. This fact has the Liberals scrambling as evidenced by their penchant for trolling the depths for pseudo scandals instead of getting their own house in order and fit to present as a government in waiting.

    In contrast, Iggy is starting to wear his challenging job on his face, looking ever more haggard. I join Senator Duffy in feeling sorry for the man. He's obviously out of his realm. It would be difficult even for an experienced politician to control the fractious LPOC as it's leader. Iggy is far removed from being ready to govern the country, it appears from polling results the people have made that deduction.

    The media are in a bind and they know it. The Liberals are their constant whine, lamenting their sad performance while they really hate to put out any good news about the government or the PM.

    Do you think it was wrong for a Conservative MP to put the party's logo on mock cheques dispensing government funds to a local riding?

    Liz J hysterical just in case you think the MSM still need to be in a bind here's good news for you:

    Check the record by Susan Delacourt
    In July, Dimitri Soudas, the PM's spokesman,was remarkably vague — and not at all contrite — when I talked to him for this story, which was written after constituents in Peter Van Loan's riding complained about the minister passing off government cheques as his own, or as Conservative party benevolence.

    In fact, the federal Treasury Board investigated whether it was proper and in the face of that, all Soudas could tell me was that he was “proud” of the big cheque given to the good citizens of Innisfil.

    Tonight, I heard Soudas telling CTV's Tom Clark that it was “NOT appropriate” for MPs to be slapping party logos and MPs' signatures on government cheques.

    So, my questions are:

    1. When did the PMO decide that Van Loan and others were off side with their carnival-sized cheques? They've known since at least July that this was going on.

    2. And, since when did MPs start doing anything independently in this government? Did all these MPs and ministers just head to to the copy shop and get these cheques printed up themselves, by huge coincidence?

    If Mr. Soudas would like to answer these questions, in light of his comments to the Star last July, we'll happily print them here.

    Parny love, with three replies to one post, forgive me for asking, but who's hysterical?

    I don't recall mentioning the Conservative logo on the billboard sized cheques but it's a minor discretion and it's been dealt with and case closed. Most of us capable of reasoned thought know the money doesn't come from the CPC alone but they are the party in power and they get to deliver it, it's their job. Unethical? Get back about that after you refresh your memory and compare it with some of the real scandals and unethical behaviour that went down under the Liberal government.
