It’s quickly becoming ‘The Lunatic-ship of Stephen Harper’.  It has almost reached a comedic level that I’ve never experienced before in Canadian politics.  I mean I thought René Lévesque was a hoot to watch, but Harper is getting downright hilarious, especially during Question Period, where he is clearly rattled by the sudden return of the Liberals and it shows in his consistent nervous rendition of Trudeau’s lack of experience!
 
In the meantime, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair stands on the other side of the House waving his arms frantically trying to get Harper’s attention, I mean come on… he is after all, the Official Opposition!  I don’t think Harper even knows he’s there!


Harper and his cohorts have created a fine mess, partly to blame is Harper's "not so secret" agenda.  Perhaps if he wasn't blinded by his quest for parliamentary purity and shaping Canada in his image, he might not have had so many really stupid things going on.

Or a nug as Colonial Henry Blake once said in an episode of M*A*S*H.  Major Frank Burns wanted Blake to order a 40mm anti-aircraft gun. The other doctors (Hawkeye and Trapper) didn’t want a nug or a gun in the camp because it would draw enemy fire, and since it was a hospital, yadda yadda.  Anyone who’s a M*A*S*H fan (or uses common sense) would agree.  
 
In Western movies (cowboys etc.) depicted by American producers and loosely based on what the “Old Western Days” were like, we were usually faced with the prospect of a gunfighter who has to face another, in the tradition of “I’m faster than you, Billy-the-Kid!” or sometimes it’s the town’s lawman “I’m quicker on the draw than you, Sheriff!”; followed by someone dying.
 
Key word here is “dying”.

Well, isn’t this a merry-go-round of silliness.
 
While Chief Spence continues with her “hunger strike” (which is more of a ‘fast’ than anything else), the protesting Natives hold Canada and Canadians hostage over their never-ending mantra of not getting what they want.  (On the other hand – who ever does?)  

Chief Spence seems to be doing pretty good considering that most people on a “hunger strike” after 35 plus days would be at death’s door.  Chief Spence, however, is walking around holding one-sided press conferences.
 
And I’m not even going to mention the millions of Attawapiskat dollars (1) that seem to have been slightly misplaced.  Oh crap, I shouldn’t have said that.

Democracy Hits an All Time Low - Canada is living with a Dictator and his name is Stephen Harper, our current Prime Minister.  If this sounds outlandish then perhaps you are a conservative or you don’t believe in the obvious set of circumstances surrounding the statement.

Normally I don’t go bounding off into space with silly articles, but yet, when one begins to add up all the tiny pictures of Harper’s coup d’etat, and then looks at the whole show now, a reasonable conclusion starts to form.  A Democratic Dictatorship.(1)  Not a farfetched idea from a mad man (me), nor a bizarre conspiracy theory, but an actual possibility.

Now before you go off to warm-up your hockey sticks to pummel me with, how about I go over a few things first.

To make a very long story short… a one time fan of former Liberal PM Pierre Trudeau and a member of the Young Liberals Club, Stephen Harper soon changed his political hat when he disagreed with Trudeau and his National Energy Program.  From there he moved on to the Progressive Conservatives and started as chief aide to PC MP Jim Hawkes.

It’s as simple as that. Too many people, not enough stuff. You can replace the word “stuff” with any of the following… food, water, housing, work, medical care, living supplies, happiness, security, or brains.

Definitely not enough condoms.

The reason many people can’t get ahead is that there are too many of us on the planet and there’s not enough to go around. Mon Dieu, that sounds so simple an equation, doesn’t it? Yet very few actually understand the real problem.

There are those who will say, and this includes scientists (and we know they’re never wrong); “We won’t run out food and water as our population increases.” This would be the same group who can’t see the one billion people already starving. These people we will fondly call “nuts”.

We Are Not Special - For about three million years humans have trotted about this planet.  Our earliest ancestors had an excuse for being ‘stupid’: they had the brain size of a sabre-tooth squirrel. 

As we went along from being hunters and gatherers, to Homo Erectus and Neanderthals, we discovered that if we wanted to, we could work together, communicate to each other, organize tribes, and create basic ‘family’ structures.  At this stage of the game, we could make better decisions than we do now.  However, that great early thinking didn’t end there.

It didn’t take us long to realize that just like the animals, we could kill.  Then we realized something else, we could kill each other.  We also realized we could not only kill each other, but we had it in us to torture, imprison, abuse, coerce, maim, deceive, humiliate, and rape our fellow human.  And the human race was off and running.
