Elephants and Ethics

As former mail man I'm not often happy to see a dog but in this case I'm glad to make an exception. I am so tired of the self-centered, self- serving and self-righteous posturing of the neo-con right in this country. Doubly so because not only are they American wannabes, but what they want from the U.S. is the worst rather than the best of what the U.S. has to offer. Imagine living next door to an elephant and thinking that the only thing of value it has to offer is steaming piles of elephant shit. Well, say hey to the Canadian neo-con movement.

I see that Democracy Watch has dubbed Prime Minister Harper both a liar and a hypocrite. Democracy Watch apparently gave the Tory ethics package high marks during the election but now says the Harper government has written gaping loopholes into at least 5 areas of the new code of ethics.

That took about 15 minutes and is anyone surprised? We know that when it comes to ethics the neo-cons are gonna want loop holes big enough to drive a truck through because they're not gonna want anything to get in the way of implementing their agenda. I mean, they are (with apologies to royalty everywhere) the kings and queens of the what's-in-it-for-me set, when you're trying to grab up all you can who's got time for ethics?

So what do you think the deal with the Conservatives really is?

I'm wondering why they are abandoning all pretensions of ethics.

I'm wondering why they called Belinda Stronach a “slut”, “prostitute”, and “whore” for doing the same thing David Emerson did.

I remember on Conservative feebly defending the comment by saying that there were male prositutes too.

Did anyone use the same ephithets to describe Emerson? With Stronach, Saskatchewan Conservative MP Maurice Vellacott said "people prostitute themselves for different costs or different prices" and Alberta Conservative Tony Abbott let loose by saying Stronach "whored herself out for power".

What a bunch of hypocrites.

I wonder if their neo-con aplogists are going to be out in full force the way they were on the Stronach deal?
