    They may have been her reason for doing it. I don't know. But the reason her employer fired her was as I said.

    Get a grip.
    I just re-read my post and cannot see where I claimed she was fired for her "specific politics".

    Do you have a direct quote of mine saying I did?

    The Governor General is our head of state, and the Speech from the Throne is a big ****ing deal.

    To put it into context: Imagine a person walking down the aisle of congress and produce a Anti-Obama sign while he is making the State of the Union address. Pretty much what happened here.

    She succeeded.

    Other than that, her next "conviction" is to figure out where dollar-drinks are being served tonight.
    Senate Pages don't get paid ^_^

    Who gives a flying **** what the majority think? I don't know about you, but I generally stand by my convictions no matter how many people may disagree with me. For instance: no matter how many people keep telling me that gay marriage is wrong, no matter how many people keep voting against it, I'm gonna keep telling them they're full of it.

    But because you can say they are full of it... they can then respond in kind?

    Sure. Why the hell not? It goes round and round and eventually one side wins. And my side is eventually gonna win this one.

    Apparently the government gave a flying **** because they fired her, and rightly so. Perhaps the next time she has something to say she can pick another venue, and a more articulate message..

    "Stop Harper"???

    It means nothing whatsoever. I agree that stupid people have a right to their opinions but intelligent people have the right of response, and they responded.

    If she was to support Gay marriage (which is legal in Canada by the way) then she would have had message. But what part of 'Stop Harper' can anyone agree with. She is an obvious dunce.

    What is your side here? Stop Harper?

    Stop Harper where? How? When ? Why? For what reason? What are you supporting here or protesting against?

    You need to chill. I was telling Wake that the pro gay-marriage side will eventually win. Jeezus. What did they put in your coffee today?
