Whine, Complain

Things the Federal Liberals did that I didn't like:
  • Canadian Firearms Registry - that's a billion dollars that could have been spent actually preventing crime
  • Sponsorship Scandal
  • Generally being a bunch of entitled, self-righteous twits
Things the Federal Conservatives are doing that I don't like
  • Renamed the government after their leader (srsly, WTF)
  • Gagged all government scientists
  • Gutted scientific research and environmental review
  • Gutted freedom of the press by not actually having genuine press conferences
  • Suspicious electoral activity
  • Generally being a bunch of entitled, self-righteous twits
Mostly there are a lot of really weird and disturbing things going on now.
  • As seen in the US, politics is becoming a weird, polarized mix of marketing and sport bordering on religion
  • That is, there is no substance or policy, just efforts to convince by confusion
  • We're asked to pick a team to cheer for, not ask if the players are any good, if we should form our own team, or if we should play a different game entirely
I think I'm a political atheist.

Edit Sept. 10, 2012 - severed diplomatic relations with Iran
Edit Sept. 12, 2012 - oh, and I forgot the whole F-35 thing
