Rest assured that we have barely begun to expose Blogging Tory Sandy Crux's list of alleged CPoC "accomplishments" for the dishonest, partisan hackery that it is but, before we hit the road this morning, I think it would be entertaining to once again examine that wretchedly deceptive list to note, not what's on it, but what is strangely missing.
For instance, isn't it odd that, amongst all those stellar achievements, there's absolutely no mention of Brenda Martin? Why is that, Sandy? Wouldn't it make sense to brag, front and centre, about how Steve and the Stevettes leapt to the defense of an unfortunate Canadian woman incarcerated in a Mexican prison for over two years without trial, and successfully brought her home? You'd think that would be an "accomplishment" worth crowing about, and yet ... dead silence. How curious. Why is that?
Or how about this one, Sandy?
Tories to cut funding for womens' advocacy work
OTTAWA -- The federal Conservative government says it will no longer fund women's groups that do advocacy, lobbying or general research, leaving some to wonder what's left.
The drastic change to the mandate and operation of Status of Women Canada also drops the word "equality" when listing the agency's goals.
Given how proud Sandy and her hacktacular BT colleagues are about fiscal responsibility and slashing unnecessary expenses, one has to wonder why Sandy isn't suitably proud of that Harper Party of Canada "achievement." And yet, you will search her list in vain for any reference to that. Puzzling, no?
Similarly, one might be curious as to why Sandy isn't bragging about this:
Tories chop two legal programs
Funding to two federal legal programs, the Court Challenges Program and the Law Commission, were cut last week, leaving many in the legal community up in arms.
As part of an announcement by the government that it had identified $1 billion in total program cuts, it will save $5.6 million over two years by eliminating the Winnipeg-based Court Challenges Program. The program was set up in 1994 as a national, non-profit organization aimed at providing financial assistance for important court cases that advance equality and language rights guaranteed under the Constitution.
So what's the deal, Sandy? How exactly do you decide what makes it onto the list and what doesn't? Given how proud you are of numerous CPoC budget-related items, why the deafening silence when it comes to the slash-and-burn approach of the CPoC to social programs? Surely it's not because you're perhaps ashamed of those achievements?
Or maybe you had just forgotten about them. No problem, Sandy ... we here at CC HQ and our readers will be happy to help you out. So I call on all of the CC regulars to scour the Harper record, pick out the good stuff, and drop Sandy a note. She's clearly a busy person, so it's only right that we lend her a hand to make sure her list is delightfully representative of the real Stephen Harper and his loyal gaggle of demented, Bible-whomping, right-wing fuckwits.
No, no, Sandy, don't thank us. It's what we live for. Really.
P.S. If I were you, Sandy, I'd definitely add this under your sub-heading of "Accountability." It just so belongs there, wouldn't you say?
