The Cons think the Provinces are “special interest groups”…

Someone should tell them.

@TonyClement_MP @johnsonWilliam i guess the provs are special interest groups? Premiers want say in census feud –


OC Transpo a keen student of the Harperites…

Again, where are the buses, OC Transpo? If your schedule goes into summer mode, at least tell us about it! Ten minutes at Hurdman before a 38 showed up!

Oh, I get it. You’re taking your cues from the Harperites. Cut back on services and the information sources used to measure whether or not said services have actually been, you know, cut back.

Oh, and according to the HP, Glenn Beck might be going blind. That’s truly sad. I mean, why isn’t it his voice that he’s losing?


Word of the day for the DeceptiCons

As part of my ongoing mission to enlighten the ignorant, I submit, the pleasure of Cons everywhere, the following word:

Obscurantism (French, obscurantisme, from the Latin obscurans, “darkening”) is the practice of deliberately preventing the facts or the full details of some matter from becoming known. There are two, common, historical and intellectual, denotations: 1) restricting knowledge—opposition to the spread of knowledge, a policy of withholding knowledge from the public, and, 2) deliberate obscurity—an abstruse style (as in literature and art) characterized by deliberate vagueness.

Friedrich Nietzsche said: “The essential element in the black art of obscurantism is not that it wants to darken individual understanding, but that it wants to blacken our picture of the world, and darken our idea of existence.”

Tomorrow: “Pork barrel politics“.
