Disdain


If ever a photo summed up what is clearly Harper's attitude toward this country, our parliament and other institutions, this would be it, right down to his expression.
Today, the government simply decided not to show up at the Afghanistan Special Committee. How's that for respecting the will of Parliament and the will of the Committee?
This behaviour has no place in a democracy, but I guess we also know what the Harper government thinks of that quaint notion don't we.
Another example is what we learned at Copenhagen today. You know of course how Prentice and Harper and others all quote, ad nauseam, the hard targets of 20% by 2020. Well, surprise, surprise. They didn't really mean it.
If you believe in this country, you should be outraged at how it/we are being treated.
That is, without respect and in fact disdain.

I'd love to photoshop this photo with the planet Earth in his hand, instead of the baseball. Priceless.

The earth on one side and the Parliamentor just Canada on the other.

I'm not able to do that, but CanNurse, I think you just put a good idea out there.

What a perfect photo of Harper's disdain for his own country. Love it!

This ongoing Conservative governance saga is more than a little like an episode of the Twilight Zone, innit? I mean, is the national hatred of the Liberals such that we are going to continue to allow these demagogues to throttle the country? Canadians better get their heads out of the fucking clouds and pay attention to what is happening here.

Just, squeezing oil out of the planet, keeping world oil happy. Harpy purses oil like it is the ring of power. You know he could be right, and that is scary!
