I think the foundation of the argument is how strong the language is. If the government had drafted the same document and used the word unacceptable you would not have heard a complaint from me. However, I fail to see the issue with the word barbaric. These actions are barbaric, they are also unacceptable, the fact that we would worry about the sensitivities of anyone who would consider these types of rituals acceptable or non barbaric seems a tad hypersensitive or dare I say retarded.
I think the foundation of the argument is how the neocons work to distract from all their lies and scandals that are surfacing before the election.
Today another Neocon insider is getting investigated for sneaky under the table dealings leading to the PMO.
Never mind the economic hit we're facing with the tragedy in Japan, the situation in Libya and having to provide a contingent for a no fly zone there. All the aid we should be gathering for both countries, you guys are fretting about barbaric and absolutely unacceptable.
I mean what gives man?
Look, Harper was elected to punish the Liberals. It's never been about something else. That's why it's always been a minority government. Everyone knows this guy would go nuts if he didn't need the support of another party in the House to get legislation passed.
Polls have become little more than partisan blurbs to keep the fear high should the public start to talking amongst themselves about elections. There is only one poll that counts and this bluff has been used once to often to remain credible.
The neocons have spent us into the poor house and it's time for some fiscal management to first get rid of the deficit, then return to paying down the debt which will make each one of us a little more wealthy. Instead of making slightly larger profit margins for corporate hogs that managed to drive the whole developed world into recession.
The Liberals have the track record of cleaning up the mess left by Mulroney and while the US under Bush crumbled managed to hold our ground while their economy nearly crashed. This slowly sinking crap Harper's conservatives have us in won't get any better because Flaherty doesn't know any better. He did it to Ontario when they were booted out leaving nearly 6 billion in deficit.
We can only hold on for so long before the waterline exceeds the hairline.
