Fish or cut bait, the sequel


Once again we have headlines that read: “Harper to Dion: 'Fish or cut bait’ ”.

Haven’t we been to this movie before? It didn’t work for Stephen Harper the first time, so in his great wisdom he thought it would be sure to work a second time?

Isn’t that the definition of insanity? To do something repeatedly in the exact same fashion and to expect a different result?

Why would Stephane Dion fall for the rancid bait of “fish or cut bait”?

Harper is desperate for an election of his own timing so that he can go before the electorate with three wheels on his happy wagon, as opposed to one or two, if Stephane Dion wisely decides to call an election at the time of his optimal choosing.

The other movie that we’ve also been to before , also has a sequel, that in today’s article goes by the name of “But I give you my word: As long as I will be prime minister ... there will be no new taxes."

Huh? Surely he isn’t going to try this election trick/fraud again.

Stephen Harper’s word is worthless, after all, who didn’t see the blockbuster film from Election 2006 entitled:

"When Ralph Goodale tried to tax Income Trusts ... don't forget, don't forget this ...they showed us where they stood. They showed us about their attitudes towards raiding seniors hard earned assets and a Conservative government will never allow either of these parties to get away with that"

Who writes this guys speeches.

"Fish or Cut bait".

Stale or what--whatever he paid for it (actually what the taxpayers paid for it) was way too much!!

His original election speech to not tax income trusts must have been a "freebie" as that was all it was worth--absolutely "nothing" , "nada" , a big "zero".

Mr Harper , give us a break---save your idle rhetoric for someone who cares--who that is & where they live is beyond me.

A short parable

Two men decide to go fishing. They each have a small boat and head out together into the lake. The first man stops close to shore because he is in a hurry to get his line in the water and get results. The second man notices there is a nasty rock shoal and decides to paddle further out.

"Hey where are you going? I thought you wanted to do some fishing?" Yells the first man.

"That's right, but I'm going to find a good spot first" answers the second.

"Aw come on! Fish or cut bait, ya wimp!" yells the first man derisively, just before he runs into a giant rock, springs a leak and sinks slowly below the surface of the water.

Then there's this ongoing headline since October 31, 2006:

Trust Investors To Harper: 'Yo Harper, Bite Me!'

I'd say Stevie has (amongst other undesirable and pernicious traits):

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): an anxiety disorder most commonly characterized by obsessive, distressing, intrusive thoughts and related compulsions.

Let's see:
-Stevie repeats inane catch phrases and ad hominems.
-Stevie repeats promises not to tax income trusts, does the exact opposite, and then repeats the same lies over and over again.


Obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), or anankastic personality disorder: a personality disorder that is characterized by a general psychological inflexibility. People with OCPD may be anxious about delegating tasks, and they think that actions and beliefs are either completely right, or absolutely wrong.

Let's see:
-Stevie's inflexible on any policy, particularly income trusts.
-Stevie runs the country as a fascist dictator, beholden only to his own single-minded and theocratic beliefs.


Megalomania: a psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, genius, or omnipotence - often generally termed as delusions of grandeur. People with megalomania commonly have an obsession with, irrational perceived need for or preoccupation with great fame and popularity, material wealth, social influence or political power.

Let's see:
-Stevie sees himself as the "great leader" of a "new Canada", that you "won't recognize once he's through with it".
-Stevie is perpetually in "election mode", consistently requiring his minions and disciples to praise each and every one of his actions and public appearances or statements.

Will you be tricked by Stevie's tax on income trusts?

Ah,,,but Stevie will allow HIS party to get away with that.
