BIG Lawsuits (with an added reflection)

Some right-wingers, who fancy themselves as "libertarians" and "rugged individualists" always on-guard against the intrusive fantasies of the state, like to bewail things like cash settlements to Canadians who were tortured as a result of government incompetence. They believe that people like Maher Arar, Abdullah Almalki, Muayyed Nureddin, Ahmad Abou El-Maati, and Abousfian Abdelrazik should just suck it up and shut the fuck up.

Such right-wing morons will no doubt scream and bitch about the inevitable cash payments that will be the result of the numerous class-action suits of the hundreds of Canadian citizens whose Charter Rights and Freedoms were violated to give the psychopath stephen harper is tawdry ego-trip in Toronto last weekend.

Tough shit.

If you don't want your taxes going to pay cash settlements to torture victims and people abused by the forces of the state, get your government to stop abusing people. Full stop.

And, while I'm handing out advice to you mother-fuckers, maybe you guys can dig into your wallets and pay for the one billion dollars wasted on this summit, since it's you morons who voted for that stupid turd harper and his gang of imbeciles.

Edited to Add: Of course, these same right-wing "libertarians" who don't give a damn about the state's trampling of Canadians' political, civil, and legal rights and freedoms, are the same people who tell us to fall to our knees in worship of the glorious troops who are fighting for those same rights and freedoms ... BY PROPPING UP A GOVERNMENT OF THIEVES AND PEDOPHILES IN AFGHANISTAN?!?!?!?!?

I remembered why I think those people are blithering idiots.
