Pamela Wallin – Pam has never been what I consider a bright bulb. She has had lots to say but it is all on the surface. I describe people like Wallin as 1/8 in deep and a 1000 miles long. She was elevated to the Senate by Himself as was Doug Finley and Mike Duffy, good flipper flappers all. The Senate is supposed to be a part of our Parliamentary system in which there is sober second thought. The work done by Senators over the years has been very valuable to Canada. They usually work in committee form and study important subjects.
Now in the case of Pam, Doug and Mike they were indeed appointed to score political points and work to get Harper and his Fascist party elected. The sober part I am not sure of but to think that this dynamic trio has the ability to develop any coherant thoughts is a flight of fancy. Now each one of these Harper cheer leaders cost us about $ 200,000 a year. That is expensive, we pay the price and Harper reaps the benefit. Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t pay any attention to Wallin but here she is in our faces writing in the Globe Letters to the Editor about the comments made by Tom Mulcair on the tar sands misadventure caused by the cartel.
The Republicans were able to get Californians to ACTUALLY VOTE FOR CHANGES TO THEIR SYSTEM WHICH DISMANTLED DEMOCRACY THERE
It must be Pamela Wallin / Senator’s turn to earn her pat on the head from Steve. I can’t imagine Pam writing this US oil cartel propaganda all by herself. Phil Crawley would know who submitted this letter, probably the important site PMO or Joe Oliver or Peter Kent. Why would our Phil publish such claptrap? He knows it isn’t the truth because I have sent him many letters over the years explaining energy. Does he want the readership to remain uninformed? For whose benefit? Shouldn’t the public be told Harper is funded massively by the oil cartel under the table? This allows the PeeM to shut the subsidy tap off for the opposition and maroon the former Liberal leadership hopefuls so they are trapped with their debt.
They have the time to consider such questions, can call witnesses and are not affected by the need to get elected or score political points
This same thing happened in California in the late 1990s. The cartel funded the Republicans under the table and purchased the entire conventional media. Right wing measures were given full coverage, well camouflaged and the opposite was demonized and denied the opportunity to present counter comment. That is exactly what Phil Crawley is doing at the Globe, one side of the Conrad Black story and one side of the tar sands story. Everything that Wallin says can be picked apart, there is no truth to anything she says. Is this the kind of Senator you want? Pam’s yet another person who is prepared to lie for Harper.
Now to pass any legislation in the Statehouse a 75% margin is required. Thus the will of the majority can be thwarted. The minority rabid right can rule comfortably to the great satisfaction of the team of Republicans and the oil cartel. Same here. The oil cartel is present in Canada too. They have Herr Harper starring in the Republican roll and the conventional media has been purchased as well. The only difference in the contest is that back ten years ago the net media was in its’ infancy. And even more formidable is the rise of the NDP and the new Party leader Tom Mulcair. The NDP Party both nationally and provincially is not controlled by machines and its’ MP / MPPs are not trained seals like Pamela Wallin.
