Sure Petey MacKay, Christian Paradise and Bev Oda mis-steps provide comic relief.

However this government is starting to look very old and very tired already.

Yep, and it was soooo easy. To bad some people just don't get it. Their posts insult other members, not PM Harper. He hardly ever reads ehMac and won't see those insults anyway you know.

+1 Exactly...

But don't you know a void has been left so someone has to fill the disrespect gap....

I think Mleh rightfully referred to it as a "race to the bottom"... It seems some people are more interested in winning that race than others.

Funny how that sits on the other foot - I suspect Chretien and the lIberals nor Jack Layton and the NDP didn't either. Now the coterie wants to be sanctimonious and nod and bow oh so elegantly.

Support the kind of political behaviour Harper and crew have dished out and - expect to be dissed.
Layton to his credit got above it in the last campaign and ran a positive campaign.
Not one insulting to Canadians and a Rovian travesty.

Painted wit the same brush......or is that tainted.

This suggestion came from EhMax, so take it up with the mayor if you want to continue bringing down the level of discourse by being bellicose.

This act is reprehensible, especially coming from Sinc. A citizen that has ripped many posters for mis-quoting other posters. Sinc does know better.

You sir have no right to change my words and attribute the quote to me. This is patently wrong. To put other words into my mouth, that I did not intend to say is unconscionable.

This behaviour is decidedly unfriendly and not in keeping with the Mayor's ideals for this great place.

This is a controlling behaviour and a form of censorship that you have not right to impose upon me or upon any other citizen of Ehmac.

I post an average of 1.33 posts a day (an Ehmac statistic) and if you find that mass of posting too difficult to wade through on a daily basis them there is a ready remedy available to you and any citizens of this fair land.

If you find my posts so offensive and egregious, then the proper action, is to report my post(s) to the moderators' attention or to the Mayor. It is not proper to change my words and attribute these words and your thoughts to me.

If posters wish to sanitize this thread because these posters can't debate or can't defend the actions of the present Government and governing Party that is their choice.

I shall comply with the Mayor's directives. I shall not comply with demands from self anointed thread cops or cyber bullies.

I shall not self censor.

And on top of all of that who was I calling a name?

oh the irony the irony.....the sanctimony just makes one ill...

Got anything cogent to say on Robo-calls - what's going to happen if it leads back to the PMO. Will we hear the vitriol from the right about corrupt and unprincipalled as was so generously bestowed for years on the Liberals.

What shocks me is that we don't hear that already given the evidence.

For a party governing with the support of barely more than 1/3 of the voters Harper has a lot of gall.

You're not a mod MF so stop with the side seat driving.

To demand respect by fiat only shows how the Harperian edict world works. Stupid hubris hardly begins to contain the concept.

When I see your open letter to Harper deploring the subversion of democracy and schoolyard behaviour in parliament.....invoking Hitler is a new low.....then I might take heed of the bleating.

Right now it is hypocritical given the past history of the rabid right here and in too much of the right wing media.

No, I am not a mod. However, I am still upholding you to the standards of EhMac.
