God save us from "common sense".



I am told that “just heard Harper say on CBC that we need some common sense in this country”

Common sense? More like Common Sense Revolution 2........this is the same spiel that Mike Harris screwed Ontario with.....Harper’s new Mike Harris PMO gang is doing a repeat.....since they lack both creativity and any grounding in reality

God help the country and save innocent citizens from a national version of Walkerton like, urban downloading, Toronto merging, deficit hiding, 407 toll road, Bruce Nuclear selloff, utter nonsense pawned off as common sense.

More a case of comical sense. Except none of this is remotely funny......to anyone who lived in Ontario during the intellectually repressive Mike Harris dark ages.

it's the same 'common sense' gang al over again with Harper instead of Harris. I think Harris at least had some integrity.

Yikes--that pic brings back memories--I may have to drag out my "I like Mike" T-shirt & take another look.

I seem to have a penchant for voting for these guys --Flaherty , Baird , Clements.

Why has no-one slapped me along side the head.

Myself & many others voted for these clowns in Ontario that left the province in a mess.

Then we up & voted for them again federally----now look at the mess we are in again.

That is 2 strikes.

The third strike would be a fatal blow to the country as we know it.

Time to swing for the fence.

Ooooh, that's a good catch. Spread that meme everywhere: Steven Harper would bring back the Harris "common sense" revolution. Should go over real well in Ontario.

I have been saying it for years now, harris is the one in charge of economic policies in the cons party, they are waiting to get a majority, then tax cuts a la harris with a deficit and higher dept...simple as that. he has to be stoped, simple as that, hope the liberals are up to it, otherwise, we are screwed.

You people for some unspeakable reason seems to have forgotten to mention Mr.Bob Rae era as Premier Of Ontario. How did that work out hummm? But I digress.

Guy Giorno, Harper's Chief of Staff, was also Harris's Chief of Staff - the "common sense" guy. *Shudder*

The Dion Liberals have to fight the CONS with tooth-and-nail and with hammer-and-tong. Club Harper with the hammer and ram the tong up Flaherty's fat ass. (figuratively of course)

Has anyone seen a clip of this, of Harper using the words "common sense" in his comments today at Rideau Hall? It would be smart to make it go viral.

Flaherty left Ontario with a whopping deficit of $5.6 Billion, and tried to hide it with accounting chicanery. But Ontario's AG found him out only later.

Now, he's doing the same with Canada's finances.

Canada cannot afford another so-called "Common Sense Revolution" with the same financial sorcerer cooking the books.
