As you can see, I am far from the last person upset about this. Not only am I upset that this nutball has another four years to fuck us all over, but I never realized until this election, how messed up our voting system is…..how is it possible that we have a MAJORITY government that only 39% of us voted for? That in itself is fucking retarded…..seriously…..it would take too long to explain our voting system here to a non Canadian, but it’s stupid. The long and short of it is this, each city votes in a MP, and then for every seat or MP that party wins, its another vote for the Prime Minister, basically. So, to take it into small numbers to understand, the vote would look like this:
City A has 4 residents, 2 vote CON, 1 votes LIB, and 1 votes NDP….giving CON 1 seat.
City B has 5 residents, 3 vote CON, 1 votes LIB, and 1 votes NDP…..giving CON 1 seat.
City C is bigger, and has 20 residents, 5 vote CON, 3 vote LIB and 12 vote NDP….giving NDP 1 seat.
As you can see, NDP got 14 out of 29 votes, and CON only received 10 out of the 29 votes, but because CON won two of the three seats, there is a CON majority, and a CON Prime Minister…..fucking stupid…..there is something wrong with our system when we have a majority government that does NOT represent a majority of Canadians……
The next major news story this week is the demise of bin Laden. This coverage has been bothering me as well…..I think it is great that we got him, and I do not disagree with them killing him, he was dangerous, and needed to be stopped….period.
What does bother me, however, is all the after effect. First of all, as a Christian, I do not celebrate ANYONE’s death. Secondly, do you all really think it is wise to start making a big song and dance out of the whole thing? Do you not think there is not a bunch of other nut cases dying to take his place? We had to get him, we got him, now shut up about it. Let’s not make a mockery of this whole situation. Let’s not forget the real issue at hand which is those 3000+ people that lost their lives almost ten years ago, let us not forget that is who it is really about. And as far as releasing the photos of the body, I think Obama made the right choice. The media is not entitled to everything, and again, do you not think that might piss someone off? Also, I do not want my children seeing that, and I do not want anyone else’s children seeing that either…..why do we need to see that?? And for those saying that perhaps Obama is lying, I think that is so stupid, I HAVE to reply. bin Laden’s favorite thing to do all these years was letting out tapes about how stupid the US is….do you think Obama would take that chance, so a tape could be released next week?? Really? REALLY??
Of course, the one thing I did not talk about yet was the Royal Wedding….and you know why….cuz I DON’T FUCKING CARE. Seriously, people all over the world get married every single day…..get over it…..it’s not like William even did anything to be famous, he was just born into it, and Kate slept her way into it, big fucking deal. I will say though, that I would have just been indifferent to the whole thing, except for the fact that the day before the wedding, over 300 people died in the US from tornados, and you could not find coverage for that to save your life. Really CNN? REALLY?? Shame.
