Song for Stephen Harper

Post by 008 »

On March 29 Prime Minister Harper played keyboard while singing John
Lennon's Imagine at a Winnipeg photo op.

Another song on Lennon's 1971 album Imagine is How Do You Sleep?, directed
at Paul McCartney.

Once you're familiar with the melody, try these new lyrics. All together now!

Mr. Harper, How Do You Sleep?

So the contempt vote took you by surprise
You better see through the people's eyes
Those guys were right on the price of the jets
Cost twice as much but what about our vets
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

You made coalition a dirty word
Most Parliaments have them, haven't you heard?
Policies favoured by most in their land
More moderate than left and right demand
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Prorogue the Parliament, twice down the drain
Can't hear Afghan detainees scream in pain
Large tax cuts for the largest companies
And for the Tar Sands boys more subsidies
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

At the climate talks, what do we have here
Four times awarded Fossil of the Year
Those Action Plan ads cost twenty-six mill
The G8 and 20, over one bill
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Why did you lose the seat at the U.N.?
Who inserted the word 'not' with a pen?
Five times Bruce Carson convicted of fraud
Then secret clearance in a PMO job
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Only five questions, 'cause you are the king
Jump when reporters ask you anything
You keep them more than forty feet away
Behind steel fences, just another day
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

You challenge Michael to a face-to-face
He tell you any time, any place
Next day you say that it can't be done
You'll just abide by the consortium
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Get back on the 'rights' track says Amnesty
And how do you define democracy?
Your London rally, two students kicked out
'Cause of a picture on a Facebook account
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

The AG's words recycled by mistake
But who says he's sorry for that fake lake
Why does food with GMOs get no blame
Why is Helena the one you can't name?
How do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

and how is Layton going to sleep at night knowing he may have to deliver on his fantasy-land of promises he has made? As long as you promise to bankrupt the country with enormous promises of future spending, that qualifies you to "sleep at night"? Seriously?

Layton sleeps just fine at night. And why wouldn’t he ? considering that he and his MP wife double bill taxpayers over a million each year they are sleeping all the way to the bank……not to mention imagine the gold plated pension he is in line to collect after close to 30 years as a career politician. Layton is laughing all of the way to the bank….

Yup. Layton will sleep just fine, at least until he realizes that he is NOT going to get (thus be able to spend on social programs) all that money sitting out there in the hands of corporations and retirees/soon to be retirees (the boomers are now retiring remember, and Layton sees that as a potential windfall of cash and jobs for government so long as he can implement ways for government to get their hands on as much as possible of it).

But he fails to realize that those who have all that cash and assets he thinks he can abscond with (and had planned to produce jobs with, or pass it on to their kids when they no longer need it to live on) will now kick into gear to find every way possible to prevent it falling into Layton's socialist hands, and probably as a result keep it out of their kids hands too.

Enjoy your to be short lived dream kiddies. You may see a hard shift to the socialist left as the answer, ....but unfortunately you haven't asked the right questions of the right people. Not that you would get a true and straight answer from a left wing politician anyway.

Don’t forget the “big bad evil” Corporations will do the exact same thing in response to Layton’s raising the corporate tax rates. Just watch the jobs and investment leave Canada and more off shoring….

Tsk Tsk. It's a little late for campaigning rm. Besides, it's not really something that's acceptable on election day.

Time to lighten up, grab a cold one, and cheer or weep as the case may be. Tomorrow nothing will have immediately changed anyway.

Good luck to you and yours!

LOL. Isn't election spin and lies grand :dyinglaughing:

I wasn't aware that Harper was even in Vancouver this morning, but I may be wrong of course..

Edit to add. I did however pick this up from the Bill Good show this morning..

"Stephen Harper also made a statement last night on the death of Bin Laden but was careful not to turn it into a partisan campaign speech as it is Election Day today."
