Rob Ford

is the reason why we need more democracy in this country. And NO … that’s not putting it sarcastically.

Thanks to the diseased system of government called constitutional monarchy, the way governments at every level of this God-forsaken portion of the earth is crafted in such a way, that we cannot hold any level of government accountable. In Ford’s case, we can’t oust him from power … just like we can’t oust the monarchy, under our current system. Corrupt politicians, especially in a republic, aspire to be a monarch. Rob Ford and his equally scummy, equally corrupt brother Doug, are mad with power. Their arrogance and ignorance are astronomical. Now some royalists babble on about “Well, politicians last for only a short time, but monarchs last forever.” That is not just the mantra of fascism, the mantra of a crazed nut calling for a dictatorship, to chain others to their favourite celebrity. This demonstrates the failure of royalists to grasp the reason why a republican head of state is elected, why he should be impeached, why he should serve only a few years, and why he should only serve an extremely small number of terms. You have a corrupt politician like Rob Ford in power? In a decent country he’d be already impeached and arrested thereafter for the great number of abuses he’s used his office for, and for the criminal acts he’s committed, including drug possession and assaulting a democratically elected representative. This is the behaviour of a tyrant, a monster, an aspiring monarch who cares not about the people that he rules by their consent, but by power at all costs, even at the expense of the people of this city, while galvanising the “Ford Nation” who are composed of idiots who blame the media because they don’t like “negative news.”

McGimpy Pulls A Harper

I’ve always hated McGimpy. Even before I came to this fair province, the sumbitch was already a troublesome figure in my eyes, a villainous creature that was fundamentally slimy in all directions. The HST, his dismissal of holding a provincial referendum on the HST, the G20, the Secret Law that the undemocratic, unelected, obscure, and politically irrelevant Ontario Privy Council imposed without consent of the provincial legislature, and now this. A couple days ago, because his resignation is so earth shatteringly important, that he decides to suspend the legislature till a new leader for the Liberal Party of Ontario is chosen. What the fuck is this, people? This should cause a provincial uproar, but alas, Ontarians are like people of Saskatchewan: servile, dull, cowardly, and accepting of the abuses of their provincial government. They didn’t even raise a snit when the “secret” law was imposed on Ontario without consent of the provincial legislature for the sake of what was really a federal matter. This is why the executive should be separated from the legislative branch (which can only be possible in a republic). This, and the fact that the federal Minister of Women voted in favour of a motion that concerned the point where life begins.

To be honest, there should be an HST . . . on all goods and services that cost over $100, so that we at least bring some relief to those in poverty, and more burdens to those who are hoarding all the money.
