It has been awhile...

It has been awhile since I last blogged or have followed the news, did I miss anything?

While I was away I did learn that Oprah isn't gay, but also found out that Lance Bass is. Wow, who would have thunk it? I don't normally keep up with the celebrity news but with blockbuster stories like these it would have been impossible not to have heard the oh so important news.

I have also been hearing a little about the tragedy that is now occurring in the mideast. From what I have gathered from the MSM; Israel is committing all sorts of war crimes against humanity and the poor peaceful freedom loving civilians of Lebanon, all under the direct orders of George Bush and his neo-con buddy Stephen Harper. I have also gathered that Beirut now resembles Berlin in May of '45 and that the only hope to end this massive spectacular and of course majorly disproportionate response from Israel would be another successfully intervention from the savior of the world, the UN.

While I was initially hoping that Canada would have maintained its longstanding and historical position of being neutral, but Alexa has informed me that horse has left the barn because Stephen Harper has chosen sides between the State of Israel, and the social club known to us as Hezbollah. Tsk, tsk, tsk Mr. Harper; if you do not remember your roots in the Alliance party at least please look on page 3 of the secret agenda and remember that your supporters are junior nazis and can never support the Jews.

What indeed has become of the PM I thought I knew? At least the Liberals have a clear and concise position on the subject, while you continue to keep making decisions based on opinion polls rather than what is right.

I am just thankful that I got to listen to CBC radio while I was away on vacation, or else I might not be as well versed on the facts of the current situation as I am, and can only hope that more of my tax dollars can be directed to help out with Canada's national broadcaster so others can be so enlightened.

You're joking right? The Liberals are anything but clear on this and seem to be basing decisions on polls. Brison, Ignatieff, and Graham have much different views from Kennedy and Rae. Clear and consise?!?

It must be true, I heard it on the CBC.

Up until today, there were only three countries (US, UK, Canada) supporting Israelis in killing of innocent women, children and civilians of Lebanon. After today's news of even UK backing off this apparent human tragedy and war crime, Canada is now the only country left. Yes ladies and gentleman, at this moment we live in the only country in the whole globe that its head of state hasn't yet condemns Israel or at least asked for Israeli restrain (somthing that even Bush has done). SAD.

Israel is using restraint as last I checked Lebanon was not yet a sheet of glass.

The IDF are doing what they can to minimize collateral damage, while Hezbollah is doing everything it can to cause civilian deaths, and then celebrates the deaths of innocents as victories.

I get it, war is bad. I would wish it would stop as well, but if every other country in the world is calling for restraint/ceasefire, would Canada mouthing the words make ANY difference what so ever?

It might make some on the left feel better and remind them of the good old days under the Libs where meaningless words and promises were poilcy, but in the end it will take more than a quote from our PM to fix this mess.

Great post, and an excellent model of sarcasm as was obvious by the reference to the secret agenda book and the Liberal position.
