Today's anti-Harper Rant

A few more Churchill quotations:

"When the eagles are silent, the parrots begin to jabber."

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject."

"To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day."

"A small lie needs a bodyguard of bigger lies to protect it."

You could almost think Churchill was speaking to/of Harper directly.

Why I have a love-hate relationship with the United States

Here are a couple of quotations from Winston Churchill I read recently that explains it all:

"We can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the other possibilities."

"The whole history of the world is summed up in the fact that, when nations are strong, they are not always just, and when they wish to be just, they are no longer strong."

Some Messages for Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper's $50 billion and counting deficit and spending spree proves just how unprincipled this neo-conservative really is. Almost everything he's done since taking over the government with less than 40% of the national vote (by a strange coincidence Hitler took over the German government with the same percentage in 1933) runs counter to his avowed neo-conservative principles. So, does he have any principles or is he just in it for the personal power?

The Liberals are now slightly ahead of the neo-conservatives - so, is Harper running scared? Why else would he be trying to undermine Canadians' faith in our system of government with his juvenile attacks on Michael Ignatieff?

Well, it's not working, Steve! Here are a couple of YouTube videos to answer you:
