Once upon a time, in a far away land under the light of the moon, a very hungry Caterpillar was hatched.

So it was here finally.
Hope everyone has a safe and warm holiday and eats entirely too much. It makes me feel better if it's not just me that has jeans that don't fit for a few days. :)
Just an observation on this consumerist season.....
As usual the gift list was what they need, and then something they wanted.
We can only hope that next year is better than this one was. And Spring is coming. OCCUPYeverything.

Who has been naughty, and who has been nice?
The Harpercon Borg tops my list for Canuck politics. But you knew that.
No one can consume that much scotch. So I'll just put them up there.
Ezra Irrelevant. Ethical Oil, his face, the sound of his voice. Nuff said.
Corporate Canada. I am sure my overlords are taking note.
Now, here at ACR we are def equal opportunity, so there are a couple women I need to call out for their utter stupidity and failure in the areas of truth and decency.

And let us face it. The political establishment and the media, and many of the so called "christian" big box organizations have been portraying those who have fallen from "grace" as lazy, dirty and worthless. It makes it possible for them to keep on making the cruelest cuts on the backs of the poor, the mentally ill and children with the complacent approval of the public, who really should know better. Many of us are in fact one cheque off the street.
Lost your job and need EI? LAZY.
Looking for moral examples set by those who are in "power"? Keep looking. I could post links about this topic all day long.

It just gets more and more ludicrous on a daily fucking basis here in Harperland.
Now the Harpercons want Canadians to boycott bananas from Chiquita, because that company has said they don't like dirty oil, and would prefer to source their fuel from other sources....
The Harpercons partners in environmental crimes (and crimes against common sense) the "ethical oil" groups, are paying for ads.

Skullduggery and complete bullshit. And the new speaker, a conservative from Sask says it's reprehensible, but ok. It didn't affect Irwin Cotler's ability to do his job. Scheer said.
I say again, what a load of bullshit.
So the Cons will keep on doing what they have been doing, pushing the envelope and breaking the spirit of every law they can. Because apparently they can? Creating even more cynicism and distrust with the voters.
An article in the Glib and Stale today titled: Be very afraid: Stephen Harper is inventing a new Canada.
That fucking pig has been out of the barn for some time now. Nice of someone to notice?

Since May 2011, there has been an increase in crime. Mostly in Ottawa.
And then goes on a wild crime spree, lying about some supposed "mandate". Which of course would only be true if they had the majority of the voters on their side. They are forcing their ideology with no debate, despite court rulings, and effectively shutting out the voice of 60% of the population.
Lying is a bad habit, and the cons do it far more often than anyone else.
Of course, "media" even trivializes it.
Gimme actual instances, asshole.

The familiar refrain, GET A JOB! That sound that emits from the closed minded like a malodorous sulfuric cloud.
I know I know. It's not polite to swear and all, but the reality is most evident, with evidence even!
Here in BC? things are really bad, despite all the ballyhooing the BC Liberals do about how fucking wonderful they are.

We live in what they term as a "fixer upper".
Sometimes they just have to get done, as demonstrated the other day when the bathroom window almost fell out. I came home from work, and there it was, new. Smaller because that was what was available. "I tried to open it" was the explanation from L'hommevert. Makes sense to me.
Original 1940's windows, but the frame around this one had dissolved. I think that it was a justified repair?
Here is the new smaller window, and new wainscoting and molding that has gone in the last few days. None of the walls are straight, so it is like a puzzle. Way too much work, time, and anguish to demo and replace the plaster walls, so this was the plan.

Yanno, not all of us are downloading movies and computer games and porn. Copyrighted stuff.
So then we end up compressing, making stuff small. Losing a lot of quality, a lot of time is wasted.
And for all of that, I get nothing. I get wasted time, hackneyed footage and loss of quality.
That is not the free market. So please, big ISP's, get stuffed. I do not particularly care if you have a nice day or not. I am in fact hoping that ticks and fleas invade your offices. They may not find much to feed on. Parasites tend to avoid other parasites.

Say it with me.....Awwww!
Here is the smallest violin. Playing just for her.
I am disappointed about so many things too Christy!
In your whole party line. In the installation of the HST through lies and subterfuge. In the stalling on removing that corporate welfare tax, despite a resounding smack upside the head from the voters. In the BC Rail scandal. I am disappointed in your socialist mentality, only when it comes to your rich buddies.
And this backtracking, is only because you got caught.
So, take your sanctimonious bullshit and stick it right up your ass. :) And do have a nice day!

Because mostly? People are too fucking stoopid to pay attention.
So many are critical of the Occupy movement, but they really cannot give any relevant facts or reasons for being that way.
The corporate media all play deaf blind and dumb to the actual message so they do not have to acknowledge what is going on, and why the 99% are getting restless.
