Viva Haaaarper! Viva! Viva!

‘Nothing is more important in the face of a war than cutting taxes.’ Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said that back in '03.

Today it might as well be Jim Flaherty saying it. He's going to cut our taxes and accelerate the elimination of the debt, the net debt too, whatever that may be. (We're so lucky to have a Finance Minister who knows things that economists and bankers find puzzling. But that's another story.)

Well, earlier today I started wondering about the other shoe and silently guessing that it might be a big increase in military spending.

Guess what?

"The federal cabinet is poised to sign off on a new master plan for the Canadian Forces that will include billions more for new military equipment."

The beauty part?

No conversation with all those pesky elected representatives from other parties in Parliament.

Viva Haaaarper! Viva! Viva!

Can we be a banana republic before bananas grow here and before we've been turned into a republic?

Well we live in an age where reality is what we say it is no matter what the evidence before our eyes might be so I say unreservedly yes we can.

Join me won't you?

Viva Haaaarper! Viva! Viva!
