Quick Update

Politics Time Again!


Our Glorious Leader PM Harper and Co want to give out $3 Billion dollars of your money. Says it'll stimulate the economy and 'infrastructure projects' or some junk. Sure thing. 'Economy' needs 'stimulating'. 'Infrastructures' need 'projects'.

Makes sense.

One little problem: The Opposition asked them - in a full and throaty voice I've no doubt - what they were going to spend it on.

Seems like a reasonable request. If you're going to give 3 Billion dollars of tax payer money, asking what you're going to do with it just makes sense. It's good business.

Apparently not.

Faces tense and anuses pucker as Harper throws a tantrum. Apparently the simple, defiant act of asking what he's spending 3 Billion Dollars on in the middle of an economic calamity is an out-and-out Confidence issue.

Uh... what?

Excuse me? Hi. Quick question from the back here: Isn't this the same kind of bullying tactic our PM's always used? Isn't this the same tactic that nearly backfired the last time?

And our Prime Minister's standing there saying that the Liberals are "Playing Politics"? Ummm... no. Actually, you are, Mr. Harper. And I'm sorry but you can't just threaten to take your toys and go home every damn time you don't want to interact with the real world.

So... yeah.

Apparently him telling us what he's going to spend the money on BEFORE he spends it is none of our fucking business, thank-you-very-much.

Guess it's easier to apologize than ask for permission, right?

Good on you Harper, kick us when we're down - it's none of our concern what our government is doing - we'll just be over here, you let us know when it's safe to look.

Ok? Thanks.
