once in a while someone says something crazy and the media doesn't pick up on it....

Tom Flanagan, remember that guy who was the mastermind of the Paul Martin being soft on child porn. Well he said....

Flanagan cited the example of Stockwell Day suggesting that a lawyer by the name of Lorne Goddard, who had defended a client accused of possessing child pornography, believed the same thing as their client — “that the lawyer himself believed that it was OK to have child pornography.” Flanagan then continued, saying “But that’s actually another interesting debate or seminar: what’s wrong with child pornography — in the sense that it’s just pictures? But I’m not here to debate that today.”

Now I am going to let you the readers decide what you think about a prominent Conservative saying these type of things. Imagine the outrage the right would have if someone on the left said something like this.

If Peter Van Loan were talking to the mirror would he get confused?

Its about time the press got short with this guy. He is the most partisan, and over the top member of cabinet. This report about the gun registry needs to come out, I don't like it when Tories endanger average Canadians.

The money just keeps going out the door...

I haven't had much time recently to blog about the issues, but I have noticed one thing about this government. They have an uncanny ability to spend large amounts of the taxpayers money on very little. Whether its big signs on GO train cars across the lakeshore line around the GTA, or big signs on Stone Road in Guelph talking about a bike lane, or even commercials on big american tv shows, this government has become an ad agency's dream.

It is all very reminiscent of the late 1990's where the Ontario Tories cut and snipped everything but spend lots of money on advertising how great their plans for education were. It scammed voters for one election, before they were given the boot in 2003, and hopefully this won't be the case Federally.

Running up a huge deficit while only spending stimulus on advertising, while projects rot and wait is a sure fire way to not help the economy. If Harper thought calling Paul Martin "Mr. Dithers" was amusing, what should we call Harper and his gang of free spending republicans. That is what i leave up to you the reader. I think the Bush Tories is a good start.
