Let me tell you who Omar Alghabra is

Omar is one of the reasons I started to blog back in March 2008. I was reading Progressive Bloggers a lot back then and got so pissed at St├ęphanne Dion and other leading Liberals for not showing up to vote against a private members bill that was attacking women's rights on International Women's Day, of all days, that I took some bloggers advice and sent a very heated email to my local Liberal MP, Omar Alghabra.
The next day Omar called me at home from his cell, in a cab, on the way to the Ottawa airport. We talked for twenty minutes and I realized that this young man, which is I guess is relative to your own age, had more ethics than any politician I had ever met. We covered a wide range of topics, but his best answer was when I asked why he called and didn't just send an email reply, because it really did surprise me.
He replied. you are one of my constituents and since your somewhat heated email (and it was) included a phone number, so I assumed you  wanted a direct answer…

Sometimes branding back fires

Yes I am

In answer to the new Green Party of Canada attack on attack ads, ad.

God Damn these Harpercons

You know I’ve cast a lot of votes Oh Lord, my choices were not always smart But I never voted for a politician That was willing to tear our country apart You know I’ve seen a lot of people walking around With apathy in their eyes. But the conservatives they don’t care  Ah, it’s the only way they will survive
God Damn, the cons God Damn these Harpercons
You know the politicians, the politicians are just humans With the desire to help the people of the land Oh but the Harpercons are real monsters Good God, they are more than our country can withstand The politicians for your vote Lord, will make lots of claims that can’t be proven Ah, but the Harpercons break our laws Lord, they’ll leave our country in ruins
God Damn, the cons God Damn these Harpercons
Well, now we are the citizens of this land You know, we should declare total war on the Harpercons We should become a coalition of non partisans to finally end this rot And vote for the candidate that can beat them be it Lib, NDP or the BLOC
God Damn, the cons Go…
