Stay away from the brown acid

Wow ever since the wave l'orange hit the belle province (my high school French always fails me) it has been looney tunes around these parts.

We've seen posts where some young lib bloggers have turned into blogging torries in their attacks on the ndp and some young dipper bloggers have been predicting a NDP majority with daily updates on the number of seats.

Even some of the old pros, the presumably nonpartisan scribes, since they are not carrying party flags, the guys I turn to when I'm looking for the voice of reason and the wisdom of experience, are not escaping unscathed.

Some of these bards of progressive poetic justice, the backbone of the joint, have turned into rabid dippers, rapidly knee jerking out responses to imagined Jack attacks. Eventual Mea culpa aside, it is quite disparaging for someone who doesn't care if Jack, or Iggy get the nod, just as long as Harper is gone.

Speaking of Jack attacks the last one was total sleaze, but look where it came from. As for Iggy, I am surprised he is still standing. Never before has this much money been spent to attack one individual's character. One blogger quoted the tab to be 37 million in conservative attack ads for the last three years. I don't know if that is true, but certainly it was in the seven figure range.

Unfortunately this is Harper's Canada, contemptuous of rivals, contemptuous of parliamentary process and still to this day, contemptuous of the country itself.

I am beyond pleading with readers to vote smart. If you do not know who you are voting for by now, you are not going to vote anyway. I just look forward to the day I no longer have use Harpers Canada as the category of a post.

All that aside, I wish I could get as excited about a political party as most others seem to be, especially the joyous dippers this time around, but sadly it is not in me. Hell if Harper wasn't such a prick, I probably would not have started blogging or be bothered to vote. The cross that an ABCer has to bear I guess.

Meanwhile over a DAMMIT JANET they are either searching for Harpers lost goat or they are trying to get him a new one. Now that is what I call true nonpartisanship, you go girls.

I sure hope for two things to happen come Monday:

(A) 70% of voters who do NOT support or even respect Harper to cast their vote; and

(B) make their votes count in either protecting a non-CONservative incumbent or unseating a CONservative incumbent.

What I don't want to see is confused, fractured voting that gives Harper more seats. Frankly, that is the only way he's going to manage to increase his share of seats because he has completely mothballed his "kind and compassionate" sweater vest this time around.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
