My turn as a patriot

Pity the poor tea-bag patriots of America. All they want to do is protest Obama's policies in a totally reasonable and not-at-all-racist way, but the liberal media won't give them a fair chance.

I know exactly how they feel. You see, not too long ago me and some friends decided to organize a nationwide day of action against the Harper government's telecom policies. Because we feel that the current policies are hurting Canadian companies like Research in Motion, the maker of the Blackberry, we were going to call it "RIM Day". But, some of my compatriots use iPhones too, so to honour the ailing CEO of Apple we decided on "RIM-Jobs day". Pamphlets were printed, faxes were sent.

And the reaction of the MSM? Silence where there wasn't ridicule. Clearly, the Canwest-CTV conspiracy to support Harper extends far and wide.

I tried to explain how serious we RIM-Jobsers are, and a reporter at a major daily wouldn't even stop laughing to hear me out. I tell you, the rise of the Army of Davids can't come soon enough.

So I'm not surprised you didn't hear about the RIM-Jobs day of action -- the media blackout was pretty complete. But we're still here, waiting for the right moment to really stick it to the man. And we will.


Shit, my parents are going to read this.

Thanks for the laugh.

For what it's worth, I stood at a busy intersection with my giant "Honk if you want RIM-JOBS to go down on you!" sign.
