Blue Man Group Ready to Shake up Canada

The Blue Man Group with Governor General David Johnston
I guess for a lot of us are waiting to see how our new Parliament will function as it starts the spring session June 2nd the next while should be interesting. There have been some changes since it last sat.

New opposition Leader Jack Layton says he will push for a new level of decorum insisting that the NDP will not heckle the blue meanies on the other side of the house. The new Conservative MPs in the running to be Speaker of the House all claim they want to put steps in to improve things, to make it more civil. It will be tough though considering the quality of the people lined up for the job. Andrew Scheer? Spare me.

The head of the blue man group has no love for the socialists and considering what Harper once said about the New Democrats, I don't think any new approach will last long.

A few years ago Harper told a U.S right wing think tank, "Let’s take the New Democratic Party, the NDP The NDP could be described as basically a party of liberal Democrats, but it’s actually worse than that, I have to say. And forgive me jesting again, but the NDP is kind of proof that the Devil lives and interferes in the affairs of men.

This party believes not just in large government and in massive redistributive programs, it’s explicitly socialist. On social value issues, it believes the opposite on just about everything that anybody in this room believes. I think that’s a pretty safe bet on all social-value kinds of questions.

Some people point out that there is a small element of clergy in the NDP. Yes, this is true. But these are clergy who, while very committed to the church, believe that it made a historic error in adopting Christian theology.

The NDP is also explicitly a branch of the Canadian Labour Congress, which is by far our largest labour group, and explicitly radical. "

Considering that June 2nd the NDP will be trying out their new role as the Official Opposition. Pushing their new found weight around. The Liberals, in their new role as also rans, will be working hard to punch above their weight. Harper will have to get used to the fact that he has be civil to them from time to time. It will be tough for him.

Potentially this next session will be a spectator sport like we've never seen before. So, hold on to your hats Canada.

  1. I bet that more than this new conservative stevie harper majority government mandate of every fourth voter in Canada is seen within the ranks is not so much a worldly victory but a god given opportunity for stevie to fulfill the promise to remake Canada.
    The conservatives will do exactly what will benefit the conservatives.
    Like harpers Christmas card greeting many years ago he will be "loyal to friends and family"....the rest of us can go to hell ...not being the chosen ones you see...as our theology of unity is misguided especially in these end times where you have to take a side.
    There are about 160 edicts in the bible which say in some manner "feed the poor" plus the delivery of a new overarching commandment from Christ himself..."love one another"
    I don't expect much from the jack pack either. Neutered tag a longs engaging in faux-fencing for display purposes only...do you really think the examples of those conservatives who have stepped out of line are forgotten so well jack can get someone to vote out of line? gravy train is gravy train...
    Time after time our government regardless of flavor caves into corporate and international pressure which is detrimental to us and the planet in general and will continue to do so.
    The new hand of god on earth civil? ...don't hold your breath...tho if by civil you mean anointed, disconnected and aloof ...then maybe.


Agree or disagree, I would love to hear from anyone who visits the site
