Sorry for the Crease in You Head

There is a story of a man that was to be executed in an Arab country for something that he did not do. The practice was for the Emperor to use a massive sword that would come down upon the person to be executed, and split the person in two. It was inevitable that he was to die, there was nothing that he could do. So to get what he felt was a measure of justice the swallowed a large stone so that when the Emperor cut him in half the sword would hit the stone thereby making a notch in the Kings perfect sword. That was as much justice that the man could achieve.

This week we had one of those situations that the people could only watch as the deaf and defiant Harper Government, along side of the stupid Trudeau caucus voted in favour of Bill C 51, the spy bill, and without the safeguard of Parliamentary oversight. Against all the rallies, against all the phone calls and emails, the Harper legislation was past in deference to the overwhelming public opposition to that bill. In spirit of that man that chipped the Emperors sword with a stone, I sent Ed Holder, Conservative MP for London for London, Ontario, this email.

Hi Ed, after you voted in favour of Bill C 51 (the spy bill), and without as much as also voting in favour of any Parliamentary oversight, I don’t trust you Conservatives to protect my freedom or my democracy, but I will say that your mail out flyer proved to be very useful holding the door open to our apartment building.

Sorry for the crease in your head.

If you ask me, Ed is not a holder, rather he is a Getridofhimasfastasyoucanner.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen

    Those useless flyers drive me crazy! What a waste of money and resources! They remind me of something that would be done in grade school. Conservatives must think we are pretty stupid. I asked the MP’s office how many of those flyers were returned with the answers to questions that were asked. The answer was “they didn’t know”. I asked them to find out and let me know. I never received a response.

      Thank you Linda Campbell, for doing followup by your question. Is that not what democracy is, being engaged. Even if it is your contacting them about what some would view as meaningless, it is still, making your MP, or your MPP accountable. That simple act helps remind your so-called representative that they are accountable. You have reminded me about a post that I was going to do on a follow up on these mail outs. They are a nuisense to us, however, there is something very useful to the PMO, although the useless nobody PM’s (how the PM sees them) I doubt understand the macro of their value.

      Now that I have mentioned it to you, I will have do write it now. That is great for the reminder.
