Obviously this blog isn't going to win me any friends in Calgary Southwest. Or a seat in the Senate. At least not under the jackbooted regime of the current tyrant still occupying 24 Sussex.
For the record, in case it's not obvious, I'm annoyed.
No, wait, annoyed isn't quite sufficient.
The election's over, and the Conservatives now have a majority of seats in Parliament. For the next four years, they've got potentially free rein to gleefully go about tearing down the institutions of this country, gutting the very concept of this nation on the altar of their neo-conservative policies, and continue to obliterate the good name this country had on the international stage for decades.
Decades, incidentally, are how long it'll take to repair the damage these pricks are going to do for the next four years.
So annoyed, disgusted, and infuriated aren't sufficient, but they'll have to do.
A government that was not only found in contempt in Parliament with their secretive, power hungry, obstructionist, partisan tactics, but is also in contempt of anyone who doesn't think exactly like they do, is now in majority control of Parliament. A schoolyard thug, his inner cabal of flying monkeys and knuckledragging neanderthals, and their pals are running the show.
At least they've got a stronger opposition in the NDP, albeit one that's pretty much the polar opposite of everything they stand for.
It's going to be a loooooooong four years....
