Driving after work today, I noticed a homemade sign in the back window of a woman's car with this post's title. I mused, "What could motivate her to make this comparison?"

Is it the arm-banded 'Harper youth', fully enamoured with nationalistic Canadian pride, wanting to conquer the world for mein Fuhrer and the motherland? Is allegiance to Harper being demanded as a precursor to being 'truly Canadian'? Perhaps she's aware of some genocidal tendencies the rest of us haven't seen (part of the CPC 'hidden agenda')? Is it because they both have six letters, starting with an 'H', ending with 'ER', and the same sequence of vowels/consonants in between?

Maybe she's just a schmuck, unable to discern right and wrong because she graduated from a Canadian school? (disclaimer, I'm a teacher, and know first-hand the indoctrination kids receive: I know of a high school that recently had Gwynne Dyer in to speak about the 'Pax Americana', complete with anti-'neo-con' indoctrination, and the need to 'stop the Americans').

Yeah, I'm guessing the latter option.

Check out page A2 of the weekend Globe (Jan 7,2006)and maybe that will help answer your question.

I think this woman was, and is more than capable of discerning right from wrong.

Because social rights are, right!

Right for blacks, whites, gays, straights, immigrants and our Canadian-blooded.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of tax cuts! Boo GST! But I'll take GST over paying a doctor for my next sprained ankle. Forget "Two-Tier" Health-Care, that is not Harper's goal.

Hitler, Harper, six letters, vowels/consonants; Coincidence? or Omen?

'Yeah, I'm guessing the latter option.'

(Disclaimer, I am a high school student, and I dare to argue that I know first-hand what I was taught. In 3 politics classes, from 3 different High Schools, I was taught to read any resource, listen to any view and by whatever means, form my own opinion)

And unlike Hitler -- I mean Harper, I am not a fascist. I am, by no one's fault but my own, a socialist citizen of Canada, the mosaic; NOT Stephen Harper's melting pot that I'm sure he would like to call 'The United States of Canada.'

One might also argue that we have as many anti-neo-con teachers as we have neo-con teachers; ...might.
