Generational Occupancy

I don’t know what’s going on.
I’ve been away for far too long.
It looks like my world may have started to change.
The long haired freaky occupation.
Has been compared to my generation
So I shouldn’t find a new revolution all that strange






However what does strike me as a tad crazy 
Is how generations X & Y were so damned lazy
There was an obligation to take over when the yippies stopped carrying the load
So hurray you are starting to get in a fuss
Except you think you lead by driving the bus
When we know Cassidy drove Further, because he'd already been On The Road
So older hands than yours are pointing the way
And by all means, you can still have your say
But stop tripping on me by saying you are the first in line.
Our progressiveness has become fashionably elite
While our complacency has almost made us obsolete
I might be older but believe me we are both running out of time.

The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
