Not much going on today. The sun is finally coming out after several overcast and rainy days. The snow has all disappeared, which is a good thing.
There's a lot of political drama going on in our nation's capital. The Harper government is trying to pass an economic update, which basically does nothing with regard to the economy, but it includes a provision that would take away funding for political parties paid out by Ottawa. Right now, all parties receive a certain amount of money for each vote they get. It's a paltry amount, in the grand scheme of things (around $27 million), but the opposition parties in particular would be devastated if that funding was denied. And that's why Harper is doing it. Because he is a bully of the highest order. And he thought he could do it now just after we've had a national election and the Liberals are in the process of replacing their leader. He didn't think the opposition parties would dare to oppose him on this and force another election. But oppose him they are and if they band together and form a coalition, they would have more seats than the Conservatives, and they could introduce a non-confidence motion, pass it, topple the Harper government, and ask the Governor General to allow them to form a new government. And I dearly hope that just such a scenario plays out! We'd finally be rid of that asshole bully Harper and no doubt his own Party would force him out of the leader's job as a result. Oh, I really hope that this is the beginning of the end for that twit!
In any case, the boyz are getting impatient, so here they are!
