I swear this government is pathological. This is Bill Ayers. Does he look like a terrorist threat to you?
Yes, I know, you can't tell a terrorist by how he/she may appear, but really, we know who he is and we further know that he is no threat. Just as we knew that Galloway was no threat. Will the government allow either of them in? Of course not.
I really do wonder what the end game is here. Is this really just all a show of force for the Harper core supporters? You know the ones. Those who see terra suspects on every corner, or scream for the death penalty to be reinstated, or more importantly, those who have no problem trampling over our rights and applying the laws of the land as they choose. Because if that is who they are trying to satisfy in this country, that certainly leaves the majority of Canadians out.
What benefit can there be to that? Those people would support Harper if he changed our currency to wood in an effort to save the lumber industry.
No, to my mind if you add this to how the government has reacted to Khadr, Abdelrazik and Kohail, there is a distinct reverberating tone that should tell everyone that they are selective as to who they believe have rights. They are selective as to who they believe should be treated humanely. If you go against their philosophy, their rigid ideology and they can get away with treating you differently, they will, in spite of evidence that renders their argument moot, if not ridiculous.
That said, I know the usual's will jump on and claim the old...but, but, the Liberals! Save your breathe. Circumstances have changed, evidence has been provided and in some cases our courts have ruled against the government. The Liberal position on all of these issues today is clear. What another caucus decided, at another time, doesn't have any bearing on what is going on today.
If anyone doubted the stranglehold that the Reformers have on this party, it surely should be clear by now.
They have learned nothing and are completely out of touch with Canadians....and they couldn't care less.
