Stephen Harper quotes 1990′s:

In continuing on from that earlier post about that absurd post about Harper and the NDP, I’ve found some more:

Keep in mind this man is Canada’s prime minister and has been in power since 2006; he was elected in 2006, then re-elected in 2008 and then again in 2011.

“providing for the poor is a provincial, not a federal responsibility.”

-Stephen Harper, 1995

“It has never been my intention to seek a second term or to become a career politician.”

-Stephen Harper, May 10, 1996

“Canada is a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it. Canadians make no connection between the fact that they are a Northern European welfare state and the fact that we have very low economic growth, a standard of living substantially lower than yours, a massive brain drain of young professionals to your country, and double the unemployment rate of the United States.”

- Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

“Your country [the USA], and particularly your conservative movement, is a light and an inspiration to people in this country and across the world.”

-Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

“The NDP could be described as basically a party of liberal Democrats, but it’s actually worse than that, I have to say. And forgive me jesting again, but the NDP is kind of proof that the Devil lives and interferes in the affairs of men.”

-Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

“In terms of the unemployed, of which we have over a million-and-a-half, don’t feel particularly bad for many of these people. They don’t feel bad about it themselves, as long as they’re receiving generous social assistance and unemployment insurance.”

-Stephen Harper, then vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, in a June 1997 Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing American think tank.

“Now ‘pay equity’ has everything to do with pay and nothing to do with equity. It’s based on the vague notion of 'equal pay for work of equal value,’ which is not the same as equal pay for the same job.”

-Stephen Harper, National Citizens Coalition Overview, Fall 1998

“For taxpayers, however, it’s [pay equity] a rip-off. And it has nothing to do with gender. Both men and women taxpayers will pay additional money to both men and women in the civil service. That’s why the federal government should scrap its ridiculous pay equity law.”

-Stephen Harper, National Citizens Coalition Overview, Fall 1998

“Let’s face it, the average backbench MP is little more than a bench warmer for his/her political party.”

-Stephen Harper, Letter to The National Post, February 1998.

“Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society. It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff.”

-Stephen Harper Interview with Terry O’Neill of BC Report newsmagazine, 1999

“[Quebec’s language law was designed] to suppress the basic freedoms of English-speaking Quebecers and to ghettoize the French-speaking majority into an ethnic state.”

-Stephen Harper, 1999

“The solution is to have a healthcare system where people pay some of the costs themselves.” “If we had a healthcare system based on insurance and we paid for these services out of our own pocket, this would be a non-issue.”

-Stephen Harper, referring to what the article’s writer called broad-brush swipes at people whose behaviour is deemed costly (March 22, 1999)

I need help finding more anime. Anyone know of any good super action-y shounen anime with little to no fanservice and lots of characters? Preferably something kind of unknown that I probably haven’t heard of since I’ve already checked out most of the well known ones.

shyscience asked:

Hello, I've been a Hellenic pagan for a while and Hades is interested in me, and I him. And I've done offerings and such to him before, but I want to be able to talk to him on a more regular basis, mainly through tarot. However, I'm at a loss for words. I want to ask questions, but what do you ask a God? Do you have any suggestions? I've looked online but haven't found anything useful, I just need some help getting started on a more casual, but still respectful, relationship. Thanks!!

Ask a God anything, but sometimes they will give you the vaguest answers ever. 

My advice? Ask him casual questions- how he’s doing, his favorite flower, his favorite offering- psh, anything really works. And I realize you said tarot, which makes this seem a little harder, but asking yes or no questions usually works (ex: “Do you like [enter thing] I offered you?”) - this can help the relationship progress, and also get to know him and the things he likes.

You can even ask him for advice about your real life situations, or ask him if he wants you to work on a project- sometimes that project will be about you.

I wish you luck!

mermaace asked:

I know each type of ace has a different suit (clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades), but i dont know what either suit means for the type of ace?

tI’m not really an expert on symbols and all that, so I didn’t really have it memorized or anything. However, as far as I can tell this is the most common way people match their orientations to cards, or at least the most recent one-

I found this on theasexualityblog, more specifically this post.

There has been some variations in regards to what suit is for which (some blogs state that ace of clubs is for greyromanitic aces and not for questioning/unsure) however theasexualityblog’s version is the most popular one as far as I can tell.

1) Drinking cheap wine and eating red vines

3) questioning why i’m reading fic on livejournal
4) considering what sort of effort level it would take to move all the sherlock fanfic in the world onto ao3 for ease of reading on a mobile device
5) thinking about watching Third Star while alone and maudlin
