June 3, 2011 - Stop Harper?

ok folks, so a university student gets a federal government job as a Page in the Senate, and interrupts a formal throne speech by holding up a STOP sign that reads "Stop Harper". Well, that's definitely an interesting way for an activist to make a political statement, but also a great way to get fired and ruin your reputation. While many of my 'facebook friends' seem supportive, while i may agree with the message, i disagree with the delivery methodology. Disrespecting the institution of parliament may be something Harper has been allowed to get away with, but two wrongs don't necessarily make a right. Then again, Harper broke rules and he was still voted in a majority government, so who knows what's really right or wrong these days?? But what bothers me, is that goofs like this seem to have no problems getting jobs, yet i tend to lways get overlooked, because i am a member of an unrecognized visual minority, transsexual. Sad thing is, i bet she'll get hired again before i can find a better job, and i bet she'll be earning more money that i will within a few years! A strange and sad world we live in.
