Harper the Egomaniac

Despite Stephen Harper's threat to retool the Canada 35,000,000 Canadians know and love before an election ... he still won!
And he is changing Canada at WARP SPEED, creating a record deficit in just two years, ordering military equipment worth $100,000,000,000, which our country can ill afford and selling off our natural resources to the Chinese.
Too many people did not vote in 2011 and Harper got his majority with just 39% of the ballots cast, giving him the go-ahead to destroy the Canada we love.
Perhaps this record of "comics," as we follow his stupidy for four years, will help to jog some voters in the next election to give him the boot.

And Remember!

Humour ... when reality is too ridiculous!

Hunger Strikes: The return of the silent protest Friday, March 2, 2012 | Categories: Episodes It's long been used as a weapon in the fights for freedom and independence. A tactic that's counted by the day. And it appears the hunger strike is seeing a resurgence as a tool or protest. Three of The Current Hunger Strikes: The return of the silent protest - UN Human Rights Mahatma Gandhi often wielded his greatest power when he was weak from hunger. Bobby Sands never knew how successful he was. The IRA prisoner died after nearly ten weeks of fasting in 1981. The name Orlando Tamayo may not be as well known. The Cuban dissident died after more than 80 days of a hunger strike to protest prison conditions. A hunger strike can draw the world's attention. Or it can literally be -- a waste. Nevertheless, for desperate people, the hunger strike is a viable option -- and the number of desperate people appears to be growing. Last week, a Palestinian man protesting what he believed to be an arbitrary arrest by Israel, took food for the first time in 66 days. Khader Adnan ended his hunger strike when Israel agreed to release him next month. Richard Falk is the United Nations' Special Rapporteur on Palestinian Human Rights, and he's written extensively about Khader Adnan. We reached him in Santa Barbara, California. Hunger Strikes: The return of the silent protest - Hunger-Striking Activist Protesters in the small island kingdom of Bahrain began demanding democratic reform this past spring. What Abdulhadi Alkhawaja got was a knock on his door in the middle of the night and was placed under arrest. The prominent human rights activist is now serving a life sentence in prison. He began a hunger strike February 9th. His daughter, Zainab Alkhawaja joined us from Manama, Bahrain.
