The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn’t angry enough. ~Bede Jarrett
Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight. ~Phyllis Diller
In certain trying circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity furnishes a relief denied even to prayer. ~Mark Twain
Life has intervened lately on my ability to read and/or blog as often as I would like. However, I have reached a state of anger and resentment of the whole political process that I simply must vent.
It would appear that the concept of democracy has all but been lost.
The current Harper Government™ seems to have confused being elected by a modest number of people with absolute right to mob rule. Further evidence of the need to reframe our current process. The lack of will shown by the other parties to partake in any form of fight against this Bush wannabe is an outrage. They are all, as modern day Nero’s, fiddling while all our hard won rights and cherished freedoms burn.
Speaking frankly as a voter, a citizen, a woman, A CANADIAN, I really don’t give a rat’s furry ass how your poll numbers look. Want better poll showings? DO SOMETHING! SAY SOMETHING!
Prove you are there to do more than warm seats and gather pensions.

Thank you April. I am sick and tired of all opposition parties being led by poll numbers. Harper has a minority and yet we would never know it by the way Parliament is behaving.
Gawd, I hope our “modern day Neros” are reading this, Debra! I’ve seriously had it with the lot of ’em, lately. 👿
You goddamn right.
Read this interview with Drew Weston today, thought the following quote was pertinent (even if the overall focus of the interview–and the book in question–is Southerly):
You have my vote, Debra.
