March 8: your afternoon Robocon

“Oh, you’re not a Conservative?”


  1. AP says:

    Holy shit Warren. Stephen Harper is Mitch & Murray.

    This conservative caller is like one of the salespeople in GGGR.

    “Fuck you caller. That’s my name.”

    “You know what is takes to con people into voting Conservative? It takes brass balls.”


    • AP says:

      Yeah. ABC in GGGR is the basis of life for douche bags.

    • Cynical says:

      And one of the many, many reasons why purchasing products over the internet without contact with a salesperson has become so popular. Nice not to have to deal with slime mould.

  2. GPAlta says:

    “On behalf of the Harper Government in Ottawa” sounds like a false statement to me, since the federal government also calls itself the Harper Government. I think this statement alone merits investigation.

    • AP says:

      That reminded me of the Dragons’ Den episode where a debt collection agency called itself “The Law Offices” although it wasn’t a law firm for the sole purpose of intimidating and scaring the shit out of people. Sleaze, sleaze and more sleaze.

  3. David_M says:

    Here’s another QC/robocon article.


    I’m not familiar with the outlet or the author but it was an interesting read.

    Haven’t seen much more on this subject, maybe I’m just not paying enough attention.

  4. William says:

    trickle, trickle, trickle….down comes the dyke.

    Ain’t politics a bitch!

  5. Geoffrey Laxton says:

    This is the Life: What has our politics come to?

  6. Tdotlib says:

    Hooboy! That’s one well trained older gentleman working the phones for RMG. They’ve been using the fundraising records of their charity clients for years to stoke the CIMS fires. IE: if you donate to charity X, chances are you’ll donate to the Cons.

    The main reason they bought Xentel was for the charity clients.

    It’s not that hard to see the correlation in all of this but the media is dragging its collective feet in putting the full narrative together – gotta get as many page views as possible!

  7. Geoffrey Laxton says:

    There was an item on the News last night about Sandoz in Quebec cutting production of many hospital pharmaceuticals in half to comply with FDA manufacturing requirements.

    This issued was raised more than a year ago by the Liberals in Parliament and again last november. I don’t know what version of the national anthem they sing, but it doesn’t seem to include “O Canada we stand on guard for thee” The Harpercons knew there was a poblem and yet Health Canada is acting all surprised at the shortages and the cancellation of surgeries. The latest whine by the Harpercon is that they are “monitoring the situation…”

    How incompetant do the Harpercons have to be before they are put in prison?

  8. Not that Gord says:

    Apologies, but I have about two years of Jr. High French in rural Saskatchewan and the online translators I ran it through are apparently worse at French than I — can someone give me a brief summary, please?

  9. james Smith says:

    Don’t think anyone really picked up on what the MP from Peterborough said today on Power & Politics he claimed that the Dear Leader’s party ONLY called six million homes in the last federal election. Mr Solomon interjected “There are only 15 million households in Canada!”. Yikes!

    • Cromwell says:

      The Conservatives can’t account for those six million calls on the returns their campaigns submitted to Elections Canada. The RoboCon is a trivial fraud in comparison.
