Paul Martin visits London Ontario, and his first stop was the Islamic Centre of Southwest Ontario. The London Fog editors were unable to attend, because we were all working hard to pay for the needs of minorities while trying to house and feed ourselves. Besides, the minority that we represent is not approved by the Party - advocates of individual responsibility clog the public engine because they are SELFISH. Our daily food ration should thus be denied in the interest of favoured minorities because rationing is a reality when funding and resources are limited:
Prime Minister Paul Martin was given a high-energy welcome when he made his first campaign appearance in London last night.Martin also finds the time to talk to Chip Martin of the People's Press:
[Chip Martin] Q: The last time I was at the Islamic Centre . . . former Liberal MP Pat O'Brien was making much of his denunciation of same-sex marriage . . . Is your position on same-sex marriage a tough one with this audience?
I am reminded of a post I read yesterday by Bob Tarantino of Let it Bleed. An excerpt:
I (and you) do not have my rights to free speech, free association, fundamental justice, equal treatment before the law and various others because of what some constitution says - I (and you) have those rights inherently and inalienably because of the very fact that I am a sentient human being - is it my (and your) existence that gives rise to these rights, not what Pierre Trudeau signed in 1982. It's very nice that the government has elected to formally recognize the existence of my (and your) rights, but it's not dispositive of the matter.
