    The Star runs a column by a woman who calls herself a feminist but, in reality, is nothing but a Harper hater. Her columns border on slander and they are so full of anti-Harper vitriol that it is beyond laughable. And then there's another columnist whose writing is thinly-disguised dislike for the west, although he lives and earns his living here. The only two good parts of the Star are Ellie and Ellen Roseman.

    Wasn't there a town hall in a certain southern Ontario riding in the last election? Oh, that was a really unscripted town hall. Yupper. The Libs don't do honest town halls – period.

    Snort. Nice try.

    Where have you been, Ted? Or have you blinded yourself to anything positive regarding PM Harper?

  • east of eden

    Do you know, for a fact, that PM Harper is afraid? Can you back up your question? No? I thought not.

  • east of eden

    Amen to that.

    Hmmm. Let's see. Our GG is from Haiti and is emotionally invested in the disaster. But, as far as I know, she is quite happy with PM Harper's incredibly fast response. In fact, Ted, we seem to be one of the first, if not the first, countries to actually have people on the ground in Haiti. Plus, we had Canadians out of there and in Canada in…how many hours was that, Ted? Sorry Ted, you are just blowing smoke. No matter how you slice the cake, PM Harper acted quickly and productively. Sorry, you lose.

    And not pay tax – he'd use one of the ships flying under a foreign flag. Say, are there any Lib leaders who are actually 100% Canadian at heart?

  • east of eden

    No, it's for intelligent and adult people. You just can't spell.

    That was one strange book. I read it in 1972 or something like that. Stranger in a Strange Land – that, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Siddartha were among the definitive books of the 1970s. I hadn't heard “grok” for decades.

    Hey Parnel. Shouldn't you be over at Janke's place stealing my identity?

    …eek, I've dated myself.

    I guess the string broke.

    Well he did ask if anyone could provide an example of Harper ever doing what Ignatieff is doing now – and no one managed to come up with one.

    If any blogger would know about Harper doing these types of events it would be Mr. Taylor. I think Ted is justified to reach his conclusion.

  • east of eden

    Ya know, I seem to recall our mutual 'friend' blogging about PM Harper doing just that during the last election campaign and then ragging him for something or other, as he was wont to do. But, bottom line: no matter what PM Harper did or did not do, he did win two successive elections. So, he must be doing something right.

    BatB…..what points? the lies or the structural deficit? Wahtever poison you like can be yours.

    Nothing wrong with being a boomer. Other than wanting my 20-something body back (pre-arthritis), I would not trade my younger days for anything that's on offer these days. Boomers rock.

  • east of eden

    Oh, and let's not forget the I Ching and the Iliad.

  • Gayle

    I do not recall anyone claiming Harper held this kind of open forum. I remember people complaining that he did not.

  • Liz J

    Hi there parnel, how's she goin', eh?

  • Omanator

    Gayle, like the typical Liberano, you twist everything anybody says. Iggy is not I repeat not holding an open forum and has never, all the Liberonies are always present in force.

  • east of eden

    LizJ hysterical. Sorry, Liz, I just couldn't resist doing that for old times sake. It made absolutely no sense when Parnel wrote that every time but it did provide some amusement for those of us who have normal or above intelligence levels.

  • Gayle

    That is funny. Have you been to each and every one of these forums? I ask, because a friend of mine attended the one in Calgary and told me the audience was fully of conservatives asking slanted questions, and that Ignatieff handled them all.

    But you go on denying the truth. Sticking your head in the sand is probably the easiest way for conservatives to get through.

  • Liz J

    Thing is, Terry1/parnel etc, can't go incognito, he gives himself away every time. Do you know of anyone else who refers to batb as “BatB? Hysterical!!

  • Omanator

    When it comes to denying the truth, you are obviously the Queen of it. The Liberal Party of Canada
    had deteriorated into a morass of corruption and faul accusations. It was not alway that way. I should know, carried a card for many years. Dropped out when the King of Morass came to Power, Mr. I -knew -nothing Chretien.

  • Gayle

    So I take it you were not at all of these forums, and you really have no evidence to support your allegation.

    What. A. Surprise.

    Harper will do anything to buy a vote. He will blame someone for failure, he will create an issue out of nothing, he lacks focus and god darn it… I am a conservative. If open government means that you muzzle your caucas, stymy your ministers and try at every turn, to buy votes… you have no place calling yourself the leader we need nor want.
