reeciebastion

*grumblepoliticalrantgrr*

Joyce Murray just knocked on my door. That would be the actual Liberal candidate for New Westminster. (I did not recognize her on sight. Else I'd have gone back to my cartoons.) She actually just tried to convince me that the Liberals have been good for students. Apparently there's been expansion. I said: yes, in trade schools, goody. And whee, our tuition is now at the national average. I said: except now it's twice what I can actually afford. And apparently it's better to have a stable economy than an educated population. She said things were more "stable" now and used the words "choking off the economy", referring to the pre-Liberal government's tuition freeze, when I pointed out that enrollment had gone down because of the tuition hikes. And that I had come up a few thousand dollars short over the laste few semesters. I kept saying "I'm a student", and she kept blinking and plowing onward. For which I must give her credit. Except why the fuck was that woman and her polyester suit in my building, anyway? I should be allowed to set traps.

I'm annoyed that she made me mad. I didn't yell or anything, but I rather wish I'd known they were coming so I could have prepared a more detailed rant. I finally got rid of her by telling her I was raised a socialist, am a student, have a social worker for a mother, and have actual, consciously-formed opinions and political affiliations and therefore was not going to change my vote just because of her less-than-cunning arguments (I may have been ever-so-slightly less eloquent than that). I think I also said something about worrying about the possibility that there were people who might vote Liberal just because she told them to. Yeah, I was rather bitchy. But she was extremely condescending. When I answered the door she asked if my parents were home and then proceeded to treat me as if I'd never voted before, even after I told her I had done so three times. She also totally ignored eeeeeverything I said except the parts that clicked in with her spiel. Grrr. Stupid... capitalist... wearing too much perfume... making me sneeze...GIANT GAS-GUZZLING MONSTROSITY SUV DOWN AT THE CURB*muttersweargrumble*

I am curious, however, about the implications of her visiting us in person. I don't think the NDP guy did that, although I wasn't here when they came by. Does this indicate crazy-obsession-level involvement, or desperation? I hope for the latter. *glare*

EDIT: They are still in the building. WE ARE BEING INVADED SOMEONE MAKE THEM GO AWAY OR I'M GOING TO ATTACK THEM WITH NATIONALIZED HEALTHCARE IN MISSILE FORM.

CORRECTIONAL EDIT: I do not actually posess nationalized healthcare in missile form. Although that would be cool.

AHAH EDIT: New plan! I will instead chase them away beaning them over the heads with my Arts diploma! They will FLEE BEFORE THE MIGHT OF MY NON-UTILITARIAN DEGREE! WRAPPED AROUND A BRICK! OF COMMIE, ECONOMY-CHOKING ART!

LAST WORD EDIT: *mutterI'llchokeyoureconomymutter*

Cool things I could have said to the soul-devouring Liberal pawn.

Know how when you're talking to someone you dislike, and you try to tell them off, but you just end up looking stupid and later, the best comeback ever comes quietly and helpfully into your head, much too late to be useful?

Well! Yeah. That would be me. So. Below is a list of Cool Things I Could Have Said to the Soul-Devouring Capitalist Liberal Pawn, But Did Not.

EDIT: I drew a moustache and horns on the pamphlet she left me. I feel better now.

VERY CHILDISH CATHARTIC EDIT: See?

DALEKS!

A thousand ships burning in space. Damnit damnit damnit why isn't the rest of DW on DVD? I've only seen half a dozen episodes and I want to see the rest of it now.

By the way: holy FUCK will you morons in Parliament call off this random election bullshit? Do let's waste millions of dollars just to get ourselves into power. Stupid Conservative fuckwits. *headdesk*

EDIT: Apparently the Liberal canvassers called for my parents the other day, and got Faya. *maniacal and utterly unsympathetic snickering*
