"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant ..."


... and when PM Stephen Harper makes a promise, well, you can take that baby to the bank:

"The prime minister has made a commitment and he will honour that commitment," Toews said when asked by Reuters if there would be a vote [on same-sex marriage].

Yes sir ... honouring that commitment. It's the Conservative thing to do, you know.

I would like a parliamentary free vote on whether or not Canadians who voted for these pigs were asleep, on drugs or brain dead at the time. If so, then let's vote to re-hold the election.

Well, yeah, but that's called a vote of non-confidence. Part of Canadian parliamentary procedure.

Harper just decided that heck, if it works to bring down a government, why not a law receiving a tantrum from his religious voter base?

I mean, after all, then there can be a vote on the hate crime legislation. Emmanuel, McVety et al are pretty steamed up in the bifocals about that too. Something about them getting slapped in jail for maligning an identifiable group on the basis of existing.

Then there's abortion being legitimized...

Death penalty...

Chinese head tax...

I'm sure there are others. We could make lists to send to MPs to have 'revisitation rights' votes on.

After all, there's no time limit on these things...is there?

Bullies like these two can dish it out but they certainly can't take it. They hide their shear arrogance behind so-called religious freedom, which in a nut-shell, is a free pass to hate.
