What is the Meaning of "Small Dead Animals"?

What is the meaning of "Small Dead Animals"?

Is it a cruel joke? It is cruel but no joke! 
Is it written by sadists? Possibly!
Animal Lovers? Not bloody likely!
By tiny lifeless rodents? That may be close.

If this screen shot below is an indication of the content, it is more or less a Sheep fest. It is also a very popular right wing Blog. It is normally a chance for spewing their drivel unchallenged. Apparently that is not the case tonight! I have had enough of them and their small 'L' leader!

It is important to brave those cold waters once in a while and take the C.R.A.P. that will inevitably be flung in order to see just exactly how they go about doing what it is that they do best. And What is that?

Apparently it is Blindly following the rantings of a leader who would like to be the leader of the only political party left standing in Canadian Politics! It is strange and eerily Stalinesque but it is certainly not the first time there has been evidence of such a cult among his followers. I mean just try and engage any of them in a discussion that is about the facts or the figures involved in any given topic.

"Small Dead Animals" is also a place where one can quote; Ezra Levant, Karl Rove, Tom Flanagan, Ann Coulter, Charles McVety, Glenn Beck, Kory Teneycke, Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly, George Dubya Bush, Ronald Reagan, and a host of other equally delusional Mental Midgets with impunity and apparently without feeling an overwhelming need to Spit, as I feel a sudden urge to do now! .  .  .  .  .  Pttuuie!

Stephen Harper has finally decided that it is time to push our buttons. He says he does not want an election. He is Lying! He says he believes in Democracy. He is Lying! He says he believes in Parliament. He is Lying!

He does not think that the Government of Canada has any moral obligation to set aside a measly $1.98 per vote for the party receiving that vote. Remember the last time this happened? It was after the breaking of the Fixed election law (in Sept. of 2008) that he had used to get himself elected in 2006. Actually there was also the matter of the short lived Coalition with the NDP not that you will find that on Small Dead Animals.

At any rate the threat of dropping the subsidies and forever tilting the playing field in favor of Harper and his silent big business partners in late 2008 ultimately lead to the hasty formation of a proposed coalition between the Liberals under Stephane Dion and the NDP led by Jack Layton, which still needed the co-operation of Gilles Duceppe and the Bloc Quebecois. If they had not tipped their hand (quite inexplicably in my opinion) they would have defeated The Government in a scheduled vote of Non-Confidence and gone on to implement that Coalition. I have no idea why they showed their hand. I am quite sure they would do it differently if they had it to do over again!

And this time around they will (if he can be believed) get no argument from the NEW Governor General who very recently had this to say: "Nothing Wrong with Coalition Governments ~ Governor General"

So, I give you a peek into the world of the "tiny lifeless creatures" who support this Vacuous Dolt!

If this is too small, open your Status Bar and enlarge to 150%

As you can plainly see, I am not hard to find, but I will not publish Anonymous comments on this Blog as I often do on others. Sorry CONS I am going to have to have some Real Names.

I will update this Blog by replacing the Screen-Shot when I see relevent added comments. Of course If my comment on there is deleted, I will not be doing that!

All's fair in Love and War, and as Far as I am Concerned, Stephen Harper Has Just Declared War on Democracy!

Small Dead Animals discusses Party subsidies complete with comments here, and on this thread you see how they react to media and others calling for less violent rhetoric and the innapropriate use of Guns as political metaphor.

G20 Protest ~ January 8, 2011 ~ Queens Park!

Do not let Officer Bubbles Here, get the best of us. He is far from the best of us! The deliberate act that this so-called police Officer was talking about was this!

If you can get there, get there. If you can't, Please help spread the word!

I'll keep this short, so you will have time to view this great video:

For more information, to see who is attending and for updates, Check out
Mass Demonstration Calling for Public Inquiry into G20 Summit on Facebook.

The narrator is a bit dull, but he is not a professional, he is just a concerned citizen who has been forced to mobilize under the unprecedented oppression of the G20 Security Forces. He is now being harrassed on a nearly daily basis and was at one point targetted and detained by 11 police officers right outside his own front door and accused of all things, Loitering? It's near the end of the video.

In spite of the Winter weather some 200 did in fact turn out! There were speakers and eventually the group marched to Police headquarters chanting "Bill Blair has got to Go" and "We Will Not Forget".

If you have other videos or photos, please let me know! And of course you can comment below!

A Tale of Two Tales: Jim Flaherty Rewarded by Media!

Tale One: Jim Flaherty has just been named Business news-maker of the year by ...... Canadians in General happy to have his leadership? Well not exactly, But that did not stop the MSM from picking up this ready made story and distributing it verbatim. The Main Stream Media has a lot to learn and a lot to answer for. The early story was thoroughly short on reason. It simply quoted those who for one reason or another did not see anything wrong with Flaherty's dismal stewardship of our economy.

"OTTAWA - As the sovereign debt crisis rocked Europe and the U.S. economy spun its wheels with a jobless recovery, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty remained the steady hand at the tiller in 2010 on his way to being voted The Canadian Press business news-maker of the year.
 They started out with verbatim accounts from a news service, but by now they are adding info and more background on it. Of course many, many Canadians read these things as soon as they come out, and at that point they are virtually identical and and simply a copy of the glowing PMO press release. Most of them never check back to see how public opinion and some time to digest it sways the discourse over the course of a day or two. Here is some of the information that was added later in the news cycle, and keep in mind that the readership decline quite rapidly after a story breaks, and that most who have read it will not re-read it!

With the loonie near parity with the U.S. dollar and signs of the economy recovery taking hold, Flaherty could boast of a record better than most of his peers around the world in 2010.

"I think what we saw not only in Canada, but around the globe was a very aggressive policy response," said Paul Ferley, assistant chief economist at the Royal Bank.

"And certainly the infrastructure program, as well as various tax cuts in hindsight, look like they have been very successful in terms of helping to sustain the recovery."

But despite his success in helping keep the Canadian economy on track, the coming year brings even more challenges for the finance minister as the vast majority of the stimulus spending comes to an end and he faces the task of balancing the budget to meet his target of 2015-16.

"I think the government did well in terms of identifying just how deep the economic hit was and opted to respond in kind," Ferley said.

"Now the fallout from that are a fairly large debt and deficit, numbers not as bad as what we are looking at south of the border or in Europe, but still, imbalances that at some point will need to be addressed."

Flaherty has said there will be no major new spending in his 2011 plan, but also there will be no major new cuts either.

"In 2010, it became clear that Canada had emerged from the deepest worldwide economic crisis since the 1930s in relatively good shape," Flaherty said.

"But we are mindful that the recovery is fragile and there are still too many people out of work. So we are sticking to our plan. "

Flaherty, having forgotten his glasses, proudly holds up
 what he thinks is Harper's personal copy of  900 page Omnibus Budget Bill! 
Tale Two:  There were 108 votes by (  ? ? ? ? ). Flaherty got 21 of them and the runner up, Brad Wall who stood up to The Harper Government and in particular Flaherty himself on the Hostile take-over of Saskatchewan Potash, came in a very close second with 19 votes. So, it was not a runaway landslide decision, based on Flaherty's legendary record on the economy after-all? No it was a tight vote and there was obviously no clear winner as Flaherty only got only 19.4% of the vote. I am still looking for a good explanation of who exactly voted, and what the criteria were. 

OK, it was 108 print and online business news editors and broadcast news directors. Gee that seems like an impartial group eh? Of course I am still looking for details on who actually voted.

In even later versions some reservations to the choice are starting to be expressed. The huge deficit that was such a surprise to our boy Jim, the discrepancies between all of his predictions and the actual numbers, and his persistence in taking of all the credit for the work of Paul Martin. The constant criticism of the Office of Kevin page who has always seemed to doubt Flaherty's skills as a Finance Minister. The rampant spending on vote buying projects and the outright lies that they are telling as to the real impact on Canada. No mention of any of this in the early versions however.

Not that I am suggesting that any of us stop to think about any of this, and certainly not that the MSM will care if you simply put your head in neutral and play along with this silly little sham that they would like us to call real Journalism.

I am hoping that some real criticism will emerge in the Main Stream Media, before the 48 hour news cycle ends tomorrow. It is unlikely, but at least the real media, the people's media (the social media) is already all over this story asking real questions and secretly laughing at the lack of vision, the lack of long term memory and the lack of testicularity displayed by the Finance Minister and by the Canadian Press.
