MORE OF THE SAME...

So the Pope's on his high horse again:

“In the name of tolerance your country has had to endure the folly of the redefinition of spouse, and in the name of freedom of choice it is confronted with the daily destruction of unborn children,” the Pope said." G&M

And in the name of perverted history, outdated dogma and inhuman regulations your church has forced its followers to endure tortured and sexually abused children, the consideration of women as second class citizens, and the folly of an organization so insular and blind that it has remained static to the point of irrelvance in the modern world.

Personally... I'll take the tolerance and the freedom but maybe that's just me.

Secondly, Jack Layton's an ass. Pull our troops out of afghanistan so the taliban can come back so there will be no one to protect our diplomats and aid workers who, although don't get air time lately, are doing a fantastic job? You're an ass jack, you represent a party of out of touch, madison avenue pretentious fluffy bunny 'everything in the world is fine' wing nuts. One more party I can't vote for in the next election. Man I'm really stuck here:

The Cons: HELL NO.
The liberals: none of their contenders really inspire me
NDP: See above
Greens: voted for them last time but with MotorMouth May at the helm I have really no interest.

Nothing absolutely nothing....

Cheers,

  • I was pretty upset to read Layton's comments... I hadn't pegged him as such an isolationist. Yuck.

  • He's not so much an isolationist as a pussy. The impression I get is that just about everyone in the NDP thinks that problems can be solved by love, lolipops, and dialogue. See Rick Merce's blog to have a look at what peacetalks between layton and the taliban might look like.

  • Mercer is bang on. Up until recently, the NDP were getting kind of closer to becoming a semi-sensible party, where for a short while their good policy stances outnumbered their poor policies stances...now, it's back to the old ratio.

    And Mercer's quote of Ignatieff saying he will not accept any questions that are "anticipatory hypotheticals" reminds me of the election campaign when then-PM Kim Campbell said, election time is no time or place to have discussions on national policy.

    Wait a minute...Ignatieff was a professor at Harvard, and Kim Campbell is at Harvard too (teaching international relations and women studies)...is there a correlation there? And of course, the mention of “Harvard” and “Rick Mercer” in the same breathe reminds me of the episode of “This Hour has 22 Minutes” / "Talking to Americans" where Mercer interviews the so-called higher minds at ivy-league schools and gets a Harvard professor (there may been 1 or 2 others) to declare his support for "bombing Saskatchewan" in support of allied forces in Kosovo.

    A rhetorical connection, I know. But it’s funny all the same.

  • Mark you should see if you can convince the bbc to let you host a new version of the old show 'connections'. You'd be perfect... and you're also right!

  • What do you think would happen if we all wrote to Duceppe asking him to run candidates in our ridings?

  • Try it and find out although I suspect in typical BQ form he'd politely tell you to destroy the country with your own seperatist party. 'We only care about quebec'
