Hey Harper - When in Doubt, Imitate George Bush !

Stephen Harpers strategy of not lowering flags on Parliament Hill for Canadian soldiers is indicative of his nervousness about the entire Afghanistan mission. If Harper thinks that we are too stupid to understand the reason for his goofy dictate, then he underestimates the Canadian people.

After his little experiment with media control he really is sticking his neck out on this issue. Harper is strategically gambling that the buckets of money he is about to throw at the military in his upcoming budget will blunt any outrage that the flag issue is generating.

Those who predicted that Canadians could expect to receive a good dose of 'George Bush lite' from the Harper government were right on the money!

Did anyone hear out there that Harper told the Governor General that she could not go to Trenton........? I just heard that on CTV..what a dictator!!!!

Not half-masting the flag for every death was a longstanding tradition in Canada before Chretien. When Chretien started doing it veterans got pissed off. Harper's refusal to half-mast for every death is just a return to normalcy. The flag should only be half masted on one day, Remembrance Day.
