Summer vaction is almost over

Well folks, I'm guessing that it's mostly due to the summer break, but there's been little or nothing to report on politically during these lazy days of summer... other than the breakdowns of the "Just Visiting Express", aka "The FailBus".

With the various municipal election campaigns ramping up, and the return of Parliament, there's sure to be lots more to blog on. I encourage everyone to start looking into who's running in their area, and ensure that as few left-wing folks get elected. They only reason any of them EVER win is because too many of us are apathetic about municipal politics. Don't forget that they control TENS OR HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of our tax dollars, or in the case of Toronto, BILLIONS. Make sure that reasonable people are elected to oversee spending, and not more "tax and spend" Liberals and Socialists.

    I have difficulty in finding out where various local candidates stand on the political spectrum. All of them say they will be fiscally responsible, but when they get in it is a different matter. Our local councilor is stepping down, so the field is wide open.

    I don't know how you can say that with a straight face...

    Deficit Jim Flaherty is the spendiest finance minister ever. Ever!

    Or are you suggesting that spending $400,000 on the SS Tony Clement was a sound decision? Or a billion dollars for new prisons, for "unreported" criminals?

    Minority Government, forced into it by Opposition... if this is the havoc they cause as a united Opposition, just imagine the damage they'd do if the form a coalition after the next election.

    That's damage that is long overdue.

    And might not be far off...

    Politics should never be all about ideology. If we elected officials that were all pragmatic, honest, intelligent, and have good leadership skills, we'd have far fewer problems than we do today.

    Instead, we've got too many ideologues and power hungry people.

    Way to reinforce the status quo.
