In praise of the hard left

MegmapleleafAnn at feministing claims that Democrats are better in bed than Republicans. I personally wouldn't know. I've never had a member of any American political party. Social democrats make better lovers.

My mom is an American citizen. I was born in Canada and my mom registered me as US citizen born abroad. So, I have dual citizenship. Thad and I moved to the US because there are more career opportunities for us here. That, and we just always wanted to live in New York.

Canadians aren't automatically leftists. However, the left is still alive in Canada, whereas in the US people keep talking about how we ought to start a progressive movement.

So, what does "NDP" REALLY stand for, eh?
(Not to "Summerisle": "hammer and sickle" = lingam & yoni, OK?) cheers ^..^

Are Canadians automatically leftists now? Somebody better tell the PM. Of course, many Democrats could pass for Canadian Conservatives in a pinch, so I guess...

Well, American Democrats and Canadian Conservatives are both full of American patriotism, so I can see why you'd consider them similar...

Proof that Christian convervatives don't care who they sleep with...

Notice the infamous clammering to God now that she's commited an aggregious crime.

I am a strong Christian woman," she said. "I believe that God has a path for me, and this was just a bump in the road."

I guess molesting children is now just a "bump in the road". Moral relativism at it's best.

However, the left is still alive in Canada...

Yeah, it's an interesting phenomenon, isn't it? We have our Democrats (Liberals) and Republicans (Conservatives), but also this strange vestige of actual socialism still kicking around. Quaintly Canadian, really. "The Conscience of Parliament" means never actually having power, but providing the occasional good idea to a majority party, which it uses to increase its constituency and appear more humane.

...American Democrats and Canadian Conservatives are both full of American patriotism...

That's not all they're full of.

Long live Brian Mulroney! Seriously, I had a friend in my Canadian high school who would go on welfare, then go on vacation to mexico, and make it back in time for his next meeting with the caseworker. That's actual living socialism for you.

"I guess molesting children is now just a "bump in the road". Moral relativism at it's best."

(snark)

No, no, no this involved a teenage boy having sex with this female teacher, so she was just making a man of him.

Seriously, I had a friend ... (&c) That's actual living socialism for you.

No, that's an inductive fallacy for you. If only the people who transport themselves over the occasional welfare fraud became as apoplectic over, say, tax fraud. It's much easier to cheat on your taxes.

Any lefty men going to write a companion piece to Ann's kind list on how sexy liberal women are? It seems that we do owe her one in return.

If you're thinking about politics when you're having sex, you're doing it wrong.

This is your helpful hint of the day.

From each according to their ability and to each according to their need seems a reasonable starting point for a sexual relationship to me. Dialectics can be very naughty when approached in the right spirit. And the left also invented entryism.

The Conscience of Parliament" means never actually having power Real power is in the provinces. The Feds just run the classical radio station, and marine search-and-rescue.

Re: .."The Feds just run the classical radio station, and marine search-and-rescue.."-
and print up the bi-lingual currency, right? (Is "As It Happens" considered "classical radio"? hope so...) ^..^

As a Canadian and New Democrat (which is our social democratic party), I can attest to the truth of your statement. The founder of our social medicare system (a universal healthcare system) was Greatest Canadian Tommy Douglas. I'd like to give you a link to two of his best speeches (that you can listen to online). I hope they inspire you the way he inspired us to believe in social democracy. He was great man and the founder of the NDP (new democrat) party:

Mouseland (you're livin in it folks!)
