To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

Best-of Canadian Conservative government blunders for 2012

 

24 Percent Majority: 2012 Best Of - Week 87 - Dec 25-Jan 1

This little blog is my attempt to keep track of all of the comings and goings of Canada's Conservative government. Every week I spend an hour or two putting together a weekly round-up of the bad things done by the Conservatives in the name of "fiscal responsibility" and "family values". Honestly, there's always so much material to work with that it practically writes itself.

Someone should hold a contest to see who has the awfullest "conservatives", Canada or the USA.

Aren't Canadian conservatives the droppings of US conservatives?

opit, Jack-of-all trades and master of none
 Nope. People tend to forget that the court system was/is the same throughout the British Empire* - and that precedents in one country are legal precedents in another. That should tell you more than you want to know about a similarity that should be inescapable when noting degree of resemblance.
NATO countries soldiers are interchangeable as well - serving in each others' armed forces. And intelligence services are united by secret decree. Then there is the matter of the so-called ACBA armies....for the names of the countries which pioneered that integration.
Add in disinformation operations and shared 'intelligence' and the appearance of individuality erodes as quickly as shared UN protocols.

* I should have noted more clearly that the USA shared legal precedents for years. Interestingly, until 1961 citizens of Britain were automatically citizens of Canada.

Wow.
And I thought the Canadians were a benevolent and peaceful people.
Perhaps they are (I've never had a bad time during my travels in B.C., hell, even the cops are nice, even when I'm caught speeding with no excuse). But I guess politics attract the worst kind of scum available, no matter how nice the local people are on average.

 Which is about the way I feel about most 'Americans'. Heck - they don't even HAVE an individual name, unlike the United States of Mexico as an instance - and I remember waaay too much about JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King as decent men sacrificed to the Mafia as much as Jimmy Hoffa was. The peanut farmer was the last one to resemble a decent President with some internationalism  of view. Reagan ran the Contras upsetting governments of countries in Central and South America and secret arms trade through Iran. I'm not sure that wasn't 'international aware' as well as the School of the Americas !

What am I saying ? Blunders and mistakes are exercises excusing malice as stupidity. GW Bush fronted for Dick Cheney for a reason. Think of all the Bushisms you've heard.
