Well I think it's safe to say that Stephen Harper must be feeling a bit bruised this weekend, like Napoleon did, after his unfortunate visit to Moscow.He's mourning the death of his old pitbull Doug Finley, who taught him not to take any prisoners. Back in the glory days when his caucus was still loyal. And he didn't have to worry about being taken prisoner himself.Or being held hostage, by his own rabid base. Read more »

Well it was quite a spectacle. Jason Kenney in the House of Commons, trying to limit the damage of the foreign worker's scandal.Desperately trying to make it go away.But the look on Peter Kent's face told the story, showed how much that scandal has hurt the Cons.And nothing Kenney said will make it better.For anyone who witnessed that absurd spectacle wouldn't have known whether to cry or laugh.Read more »
It was such a beautiful day, the first real day of Spring, that I spent hours pedalling around my magic island, out of touch with the rest of the world.So it wasn't until I met the three four bears at the little vintage amusement park, that I heard the stunning news. Little Jimbo Flaherty was missing in action !!!! Read more »
The other day I wrote that the foreign workers scandal had given us a mighty weapon to use to destroy the Con regime.For as you know Stephen Harper likes to boast about the number of jobs he has created.But from now on he'll have to tell that one to his pet pig eh?For now we know who got those jobs and it's just a SCAM…Read more »
For seven long and dark years Stephen Harper was able to hold this country in his iron grip.For years him and his Cons were able to fool Canadians into thinking they knew what they were doing.For years he was able to make the stooge media dance to his tinny tunes.But now it's all going horribly wrong.

Gawd. I should have remembered I'm living in Harperland, not Wonderland.I should have realized why that damm cat was laughing at me eh?I should have known you can't trust those two old Con artists, Steve and Jimbo, no matter what they say.I should have known it was all a scam.Read more »
Well, let's start with the good news eh? Jimbo Flaherty got a fabulous new hat to go with his new shoes when he presented his latest budget today.Or as the Cons call it, his Porky Action Plan 2013.And the bad news?The hat was bigger than the budget. Read more »
Oh no.

Well as you know today was St Patrick's Day, and no doubt wee little Jimbo Flaherty was running around looking for the pot of gold.The one he lost when he cut the GST.And probably wishing he didn't have to call his new budget Porky Action Plan 2013.Because it's hard to imagine a worse way to sell a budget, than reminding Canadians of something that's driving them CRAAAAAZY !!!!

The other day I wrote about how Stephen Harper's slide in the polls was beginning to resemble a one-way ride on an asteroid.Not just a mere tumble through space, but a clear and definite negative trend.And I pointed out that this blazing trajectory couldn't come at a worst time for the Cons.So what better time to remind them that pulling out of that death dive is going to be REALLY difficult.

If you wanted to know where our economy is heading, or what the Cons are planning to do to Canada.All you had to do was look at Jimbo Flaherty today, to know it's not going to be pretty.And that the Day of Reckoning has finally arrived.For there he was standing in front of a giant Porky Action Plan billboard, promising growth and jobs. Telling us the economy is shrinking, so what we need to do is kill even more jobs. Read more »
It's like a danse macabre. It's hard to know how much more he can take before he implodes.Or does something crazy. Because it's all going horribly wrong.

Golly. I don't know how I did it. Survived the Great Toronto Snowmageddon.Because it was brutal eh?Toronto has not seen a snowfall exceeding 15 centimetres since Dec. 19, 2008, said Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips.Not the storm itself, which was only a Snowmageddon if you don't live in Alberta, or Saskatchewan, or Manitoba, or Quebec, or the Atlantic provinces, or anywhere in northern Canada.No, the brutal part was watching Peter Mansbridge making it sound like the world was ending…Read more »
As you know Jimbo Flaherty, the Con man now posing as a Finance Minister, really hates Kevin Page, the Parliamentary Budget Officer. And for all the right reasons.For proving him wrong over and over again, and making him look like he doesn't know what he's doing.Read more »
Nothing Tom Mulcair has ever said scares Stephen Harper more than his claim that the Dutch Disease is killing jobs all over Canada. Especially in vote-rich Ontario where the next election will be decided.Because if the people in that province ever realize how much Harper's Alberta First economic policies are hurting them and the future of their kids, the Cons will be out of power sooner than you can say howdy cowboy.So the Cons and the right-wing conspiracy are always trying to claim that the Dutch Disease is just a myth, and here they go again.Read more »

Well I've got to hand it to that old Con man Jimbo Flaherty. When he's not screaming at the opposition, or giving the Europeans the finger, or standing on a ladder massaging the buttocks of Big Business, he's always trying to pull a fast one eh?Always trying to fool Canadians.Read more »
Oh no. How embarrassing. That old Con man Steve Harper is at it again.
He's been spotted preparing to leave for the APEC summit, disguised as an economist, and already he's lecturing the Americans on how to run their economy.
Concerns about a so-called "fiscal cliff" in the United States are warranted but they should not overshadow the need for America to "get a grip" on its longer-term fiscal situation, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday.
Because you know, he's an economic genius eh?
And we're number ONE !!!! FOURTEEN !!! Read more »
