What could possibly lure me from the peaceful exhaustion of my Christmas blogging hiatus? It would have to be something big. And in fact it is.
Today's Record editorial pillories Dalton McGuinty for his stubborn, dictatorial, bone-headed refusal to even consider the possibility of listening to the committee which he promised would be allowed to review the hated health tax (which as you know primarily goes to general revenues).
Ah, but the scathing tone of the Liberal-bootlicking Record's rebuke is music to my ears. Remember now. This is one of the Liberal party's MSM lemming minions.
Finally they start to see the picture we were warning about:
"This is a terrible, cynical and infuriating position for the leader of Ontario to adopt. It reduces the pending probe of the health tax by the finance and economic affairs committee to a farce..."
"What a load of hooey..." (Well, it is a family paper).
"But if that reasoning made sense in 2004, it is absurd today . . . That tsunami of new cash has obliterated the government's deficit and left it blissfully floating on a sea of tax revenue ."
The editorial ends with this:
"By proceeding with the review, McGuinty will certainly keep a promise. But if his autocratic dictates make the review worthless, the promise he has kept will be worthless, too."
Gee, ya think?
