for raj pannu
Some of you may remember the Alberta NDP's Raj Pannu from back in the day. He had these great t-shirts with the slogan "Raj Against the Machine" on them. At the time, I was going to U of A and was able to procure one of these tees. I never felt cooler. These shirts were very popular with the liberal university crowd and, funny story, I was in a university bar and a very nice lady asked to buy the shirt off my back. I was like, "now?" She said "yes, right now." I had to reject her offer, as I did not feel comfortable walking around the campus sans clothing.
As you probably guessed, I support Alberta's NDP still. I like Rachel Notley and what the party has done under her leadership. I also feel that even were I not thrilled at the prospect of an NDP government, they are a far superior choice to Danielle Smith and the UCP. I have some strong opinions on our current Premier and governing party, but in the interest of tact, I shall leave them unsaid. With that said, I encourage our readers to respect those with differing opinions.
Today, I share with you a poem and a playlist, honouring the classic tee Raj Against the Machine and the current iteration, Notley Crue. Enjoy!
