Don't Everybody Comment at Once ...

So, I typed a plan ... competing (perhaps) with all the other plans to do something about harper's desecration of our democracy and our human rights ... and I'd like some feedback please.

It's the previous four posts.

Maybe it's the most asinine plan in the world. Maybe it's realistic, when all is said and done.

I won't know unless you tell me.

I think your plan is an excellent one. I also think that it is one of the scariest things I could ever do given the wonderful treatment real Canadians received at the G20 and that was only to protest the idiotic economic shit harpo refers to as his "action plan".
It will require people to walk the walk and face the fire (I know; trite little quotes but they say it exactly the way it will have to be). Taking back a hijacked-by-fascist-terrorists democracy is and always was a very dangerous and highly laudable endeavor. Real heroes are found and made here. Finding women and men of that ilk will be the real test of this country's resolve to survive as a semi-democracy.
To be perfectly blunt, I'm not sure that I have that kind of incredible courage to face down that retribution/revenge that will be brought down on the front line protestors. I would, however, be more than willing to lend whatever financial support I am able to so as to help support and sustain their efforts.
Again, all in all, your plan is truly worthy of someone who calls himself a Canadian citizen. Now we need to hope that not everybody who reads this blog at my age or any age, for that matter, has the same reservations that I do with regards to getting off their asses and getting out there and doing something. The pamphlet passing around thing; I am definitely down with that. Cheers, Thwap

I think I'll address the whole notion of citizens being afraid to confront elite criminals tomorrow.

Tell me though, do you live in Toronto?

I live in Markham 5 minutes North of Toronto but I do read your blog, Simon's blog, Northern Perspectives, Dawg's Blog and take with a pound of salt what I see in the Star, so I don't think I'm totally in the dark as to what occurs in the G.T.A.

Oh, it's not that. I wondered if you'd be available to try to work with me in Toronto.

You can email me if you want. Or not.

Completely up to you.
