    These politicians are like two bus drivers playing chicken and we're all passengers aboard for the ride. Unfortunately, we're the ones who hired the bus drivers, although if I recall the stack of resumes was pretty low and the talent pool substandard.

    Damn politicans! I would not even vote for em...it only encourages them.
    The only politican who I would trust with me bankcard is the former Premier of Newfoundland...Danny Williams. He was so good that when he retired a while ago, folks were really unhappy there. They wanted him to continue being Premier. How many political figures can boast of that, I wonder? He was the berries and he did not take a paycheque...he gave it to charity.

    I also liked the late Jack Layton a lot.
    Really good guy.
    And, of course, he died...

    We have had some really fine politicians in Canada. We cannot complain too much. Remember when Jack was buried, they turned the waterfalls the colour orange in honor.

    I was watching a bit on the news. It made me angry.

    People on welfare will continue receiving their money. People who work for the government...some will be laid off, others will continue working but their pay will be late. I don't assume that includes the actual politicians does it? They won't have to wait will they?

    It's called the 'Republicans-Throwing-A-Hissy-Fit-Because-They-Don't-Like-What-The-President-Is-About-To-Accomplish' syndrome. I think it's only contageous if you're a right-winger.... They (the Republicans) did the same thing twice when Clinton was President (once because they couldn't get him impeached). Such is life in American Politics.

    It's going to be alright. There are enough people who care to make up for those who don't care, or who don't care to know. We got this yo.
