Bah, Humbug!

With the mild weather this year, I'm finding it very difficult to get into the Christmas spirit, and the antics at Queen's Park are not helping.

The Toronto Sun's Christina Blizzard mirrors my contempt for all provincial parties with this sudden and urgent need to ram through a 25% pay hike before Christmas. The holier-than-thou NDP is fighting it and some say they will donate the money to charity - for now, but I don't see anyone refusing it outright.

I did get a chuckle from the main editorial though, The Star's Bizarre Backflip.

Actually, we wondered about the Star's incredible flip-flop on this issue as well. But we just put it down to the fact no one reads Star editorials -- apparently including the people who write them.


Now if I put on some Christmas music, perhaps I can psych myself up to do a little gift-wrapping.

Well who would of thought that the NDP is fiscally responsible?

It's disgusting that the Libs and the Cons would want to do such a thing. I'm expecting answers that "in the private sector they would get"... well if they like the public sector let them go there.

It's not like many of these assmonkeys are good managers anyways.

The opt-out close is a joke. They should be setting an example, well actually they are but it's not the right one.

PGP and Vicki - Thanks. I must get my mind off politics. Maybe I'll try not to read the papers for a few days.

Red, I checked it out. A good rant. Interesting how this issue has everyone on the same page.

The Christmas tree re-appeared at the courthouse overnight. Nobody is owning up to it.

In the news item, they asked someone working there about this miraculous reappearance. He was pleased and said "The Crown retains all movie and book rights in this matter"

L.S. Yes, I believe that was Michael Byrant. He is just so clever. (gag me)
