What, No Throne Speech Post?

Ainge apologizes (sort of) for not posting about the Throne Speech. Which made me realize that I didn't post on the throne speech either!

Let me explain myself in taunt:

Bills and laws may break my paws
But words will never hurt me.

Clear enough?


  • You scare me when you're cryptic.

  • Hmm, now who's cryptic? I can't tell if you're being serious or not.

    In any case, this post wasn't intended to be cryptic. I'm just saying that nothing will happen as a result of the throne speech because it is just empty words.

    I guess we could read the tea leaves are try to interpret what the speech portends, but why bother?

    For example, the National Post ran a headline the next day saying that Harper 'seeks common ground', but then the next day Toews tells us they will have another vote on same-sex marriage, hardly the actions of someone seeking common ground. But of course this vote was not mentioned in the speech.

    Or in the reverse case, it's like when Bush said that the U.S. is addicted to oil and everybody made a big deal over him saying this. But there is no action being taken by the administration which reflects his words, so what is the point.

  • Sorry, Declan, I forgot there is no emoticon for facetiousness. Yes, you were perfectly clear.

    And I agree with you, which is why I didn't bother with the throne speech either (except in my decoding post).
