The abandonment of good sense in BC started the day Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberals won their first election and it has been a downhill slide ever since.
It was bad enough that Glen Clark had “Grabbed the bit between the jaws like a run-a-way horse” and so could resist all attempts to “Reign him in” before catastrophe, he could not reason against proven science either and lost it all, due to that stubbornness.
But for Campbell to sell the $400+ million loss off at about 10% or for about $40 million was not bad business for Campbell’s Corporate Connections; only for taxpayers with us on the hook for the *“Discrepancy” of $350+ million dollars. (Paid off through multitudes of taxpayer service cutbacks which followed, while taxes never dropped because of the *payoff ) This reminds me of the “Avro Arrow” although it was successful it was sold for “Scrap Aluminum too” just like the “Fast Cats” were … is there a **pattern here?
His unyielding ill fated “Welfare to Work” laws have exacted another huge toll on us the electorate from day one; all of the other foibles were bad but this has to have been the most evil and malice riddled pieces of legislation his government ever put in place; against he most vulnerable in society, the down-trodden.
Handing off to *Christy Clark just left a “Talk Show Host/Corporate Puppet” in charge for the remaining years of the ‘five year stint/cycle’. (*Listens well … Oil CEO’s etc.)
Now for those of us “God loving people” who felt abandoned to these ‘heathens and hypocrites’ we need not fear there will be justice! … And that in fair and equal measure I am confident.
And … as strange as it might sound but … I think this needed to happen as it did; all for a “Greater Good” more so than I could have ever imagined at the time because, how otherwise than from the ashes and rubble as a zenith rising from;
“The Worst nightmare in BC could … the Canadian Dream” have emerged?
Christy Clark wrote all of BC off by signing the Oil interest ‘Election advertising money’ check, because I simply ask you; for what other purpose than a biased interest to their side would this ‘million plus … political financial contribution’ made, have been justified to internal accounting @ Big Oil? … Did you not recognize this for what it is? …
Conclusively watching Harper abandon all of us to pad his wallet with more ‘re – election money’ as the Tar Sands Corporations, Big Oil and Trans Canada Pipeline tempted him with and pad the pork barrel of the Conservatives.
Finally; culminating in the … ’ill fated attempt’ to “Sell Canada Out” … to foreign interests and further legislate the integration of our First Nations, which is blatant malice and outright evil in my view.
Continuing on with the removal of protections from our lakes and waterways in Canada by allowing a mining company to forever damage a lake through dumping tailings directly into it (as is happening already) without any “Criminal Charges” being laid and imprisonment of their CEO intent on that is criminal in itself.
You might well ask yourself … “What? I thought that legislation was pending?”, and yes you are right, the broad scope of it has not become “Law” yet; but allowance of this is already in place for a Canadian Mining interest on a per application/per instance basis, with application to forever pollute Fish Lake with mine tailings.
I suggest that we fill Harpers’ Jails starting with ‘him and them‘ when government ‘by the people; for the people’ becomes the order of the day, all simply by applying our ‘free vote and concerted effort’ towards independence and away from corporate interests.
Now, it is not my intent to disgust you with instance upon instance of ‘run-a-way’ hypocrisy in Canadian government, or give you more to think about than you can actually ‘digest’ at one time without becoming totally sick; … only to reference without question why this must change in my view, and give you good reason to consider this ‘workable alternative’.
As for the immediate here in BC I do ‘impatiently wait’ for Christy Clark and her somewhat ‘uncouth’ band of BC Liberals; to be at least replaced with the BC NDP who have some ties to us the common people.
However I would even more endorse and have confidence in a ‘Government’ made up in large part of ‘Independent MLA’s’ who would be accountable directly to us the people rather than be subject to either ‘Union Corporate Interests’ or their counterpart “Monetary Corporate Interests”.
However to “Dump Christy Clark and the corrupt free enterprise BC Liberals” without question needs and begs for our “Center Stage” attention and concentrated effort for the immediate.

To lighten the mood before we part for this time, may I repeat this joke for you …
“Prime Minister killed; … Aids die in Limo Fire!”
So the headlines read after an early morning multi vehicle crash recently.
Apparently there had been a three car accident between an ‘Independent Canadian MPs’’ vehicle a highly skilled tradesman’s’ car, and the P. M.’s limousine, in which were Harper, the CEO of Trans Canada Pipeline, Gordon Campbell, Christy Clark and Pat Bell, killing all of them.
Then Harper’s Limo caught fire and burned up completely with everyone still inside.
So when they got to the ‘Pearly Gates’ and were taken into the offices there to be questioned and have to answer for their time here on Earth, the politician was taken in first by St. Peter.
The receptionist promptly asked the tradesman if he wanted a coffee.
To which the reply was,
“Well how long will this take?” the answer was;
“I don’t know … because this seems to be a rather new and very odd situation”.
“OK, two cream and one sugar would be great then, thank you” replied the tradesman, not questioning further.
So as time dragged on and it became lunch time, the secretary asked if he wanted anything special on his pizza for lunch, shocking the tradesman into again asking,
“What’s taking so long?” the answer was;
“Well this is heaven after all and we have to be sure we don’t let the wrong people in here, and so St. Peter does need to be thorough in establishing entitlement” …
Again that sounded fair, so he answered with “OK, Hawaiian toppings then please they’d be great, and thanks”. They both had their lunch and then waited again patiently.
Meanwhile as the sectary puttered around the office, and after some more time had lapsed the tradesman finally asked. “Oh … can you tell me; what happened to the people in the Prime Ministers limousine?”
“Oh they died too,” she said looking dismayed “just as the devil specified; ‘burned to death’ and they are all in hell tonight, being such a big group that at a “special roast” was put on just for them by their peers”.
There are many special guests to attend like Judas, Hitler, Julius Caesar, Gordon Campbell and just under the wire late entry’s from the BC Liberals, Christy Clark and Pat Bell among others as “contenders” from which the devil will select the “Anti-Christ” to just simmer on ‘low flame’ while waiting to be sent back to Earth for that fateful final run.
Rumor has it he favors Judas of course, Hitler, the CEO of Trans Canada Pipeline, Harper, Gordon Campbell, and he likes Christy Clark.
But you can never tell with these things who’ll get that placement until the final vote”.
As the workman sat and pondered this, thinking things like … Wheeeooooee! HOT! … Bad Party … Extremely Bad PARTY! … “Holly S*#t there is justice after all eh?” … and “He … Likes Christy Clark” … brought a chuckle; … he thought more … more chuckles … more time passed, finally the door opened and he was motioned to come in to the office.
Having barely sat down and become comfortable, the questioning started so he diligently and honestly answered each one for his time in the human form on earth.
Fifteen minutes later came the final question which was asked and he answered before he was ushered out through the office just as it was coming on night fall outside.
St. Peter brought them into the vehicle which was to take them to their ‘forever home’ and started to drive down a nice paved road which turned into a gold paved street, and then a platinum covered road with very few houses on it.
Next was an avenue studded with diamonds, first they drove past a very nice home and as the car lights lit up the sign in front it read, “Future home of Elizabeth May” then one marked “Jack Laytons’ Resting Place” and one marked “Chuck Cadman is here”.
As they approached a massive cathedral like place he pulled to a stop in front of it.
St. Peter then handed the keys of it to the ‘Independent MP’ saying;
“This is your new home” and bid him good night with a massive smile, waving respectfully as they left.
As they turned to drive back St. Peter pointed up the avenue to the very next place just glistening in light and said … “And that is my place” proudly.
Cool! thought the tradesman! My kind of place!
So he impatiently asked St’ Peter and he answered “Soon … soon we’ll be there” … continuing with “Don’t worry it’s Perfect and you’ll feel very comfortable!” …
OK! He thought … Good.
They drove back down the diamond studded avenue … the platinum covered street … the gold paved road and onto the nicely paved one; … then and onto a smooth but gravel covered road which got narrower as they went.
Finally they turned onto not much more than a dirt path with many neat but smaller houses on it.
As St. Peter pulled up in front of one he said; “Well, here is yours, good night to you too”
“What”… asked the tradesman, flabbergasted as he got out?
“Why do the ‘scum bag politicians’ get the nice places like the glass cathedral while I get this?”
“For good reason; because to be a Canadian politician or Oil Baron CEO and not become corrupted by money, glitz and glamour you have to almost be a special breed” St. Peter replied, continuing with;
“To top it off as an Independent Politician that isn’t directed by Political Corporation party whips, or has ‘party policy’ to point to as a diversion, it is especially hard.
Yet to honestly serve the members of the constituency with integrity and good will as proclaimed is near angelic in the field of politics”
“So to survive all of that entirely; yet still stand by your moral convictions is next to saintly, as my new neighbor … is and did. … What can I say? … Except;”
“We get many like you here and nearly … No Honest Politicians …”
With that friends he hasn’t seen in a while start coming up to him now … and as his attention shifts to them, he becomes lost in the joyful greetings and at total peace …
“See” says St. Peter and concludes with; … “Have a Great stay! … Enjoy!”
BTW … This is a joke! …
