The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

"Offensive" is in the Eye of the Beholder

"I published those cartoons to use the maximum freedom allowed..I say to you I published it without reservation …I published it in the most unreasonable manner…whatever offends you, I reserve the right to publish it for whatever offensive reason I want" ( Ezra Levant)

I don't know who could find this "offensive" but obviously sexually, culturally and intellectually retared people do. All I can say is that they better understand that freedom is a two way steet....and grow some thicker skin.

And Now For Something Completely Different!


Yes, indeed we does! And here is my personal secret recepe for proper Gumby porter pies:

This yields 4-9” pies or 10-5” pies (adjust quantities as needed ¼ =1 - 9” or 3 -5” pies)

500ml Fuller’s porter or a dark bock or a malty stout (malty black beer low on hops)
1lb lean ground beef
1lb ground pork
3-4 cups of finely diced portabellos or a combo of portobello and crimini Mushrooms
2 –3 large cloves of garlic (minced)
2 large red shallots diced chopped
1 medium yellow onion chopped fine
1 or 11/2 large potato (coarse grated)
2 medium Carrots (coarse grated)
4 slices of bacon (diced)
1 cup 10-14% cream
1 Package dry onion soup mix
2 tbsp liquid Bovril ( or ad another half packet onion soup)
11/2-2 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
Hot or piquant paprika to taste (about ¾ tsp)
Couple dashes of hot sauce or pepper to taste
salt to taste
A Pinch or two of celery seed
A pinch or two of marjoram
2 egg whites
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp basil pesto
1-3 tbsp flour ( I use the fine “sauce” flour in the shaker)

4 pie shells and 4 pilsbury pie pastry tops
Scratch Pastry:

(Makes pastry for 1-9” pie crust top and bottom)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup vegetable shortening, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup chilled unsalted butter or margarine
6 tablespoons chilled malty lager
2 teaspoons wine vinegar

1. Blend flour, sugar and salt in processor.
2. Add shortening and butter and chop-mix until mixture resembles coarse meal.
3. Transfer mixture to bowl.
4. Mix 6 tablespoons beer and vinegar in small bowl; pour over flour mixture.
5. Stir with fork until moist clumps form, adding more beer by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry.
6. Gather dough into 2 balls; roll each into disk
7. place one in pie pan reserve other for top crust


1) Prep all the diced and grated ingredients first.
2) Brown the meat in a skillet with a few onions and garlic, drain this meat when browned through a colander and put aside ( save drippings)
3) Put the diced bacon in a fry pan and sweat the grease from it
4) When the pan has some bacon drippings add a bit of the meat drippings as needed to sauté the mushrooms and onion
5) When onion is translucent and mushrooms is getting soft , add the drained meat to the pan
6) Blend meat mushroom and onion with rest of the garlic- add the beer and cream and stir.
7) When this is bubbling add the Bovril, onion soup and let simmer for 5 min
8) Add the grated carrot and potato and remaining spices, mix, then put a lid on the pan and let slow simmer for 15 min adding water (or Beer) if/as needed to keep a 10% liquid content.
9) Adjust seasoning if needed, bring to a rolling simmer and add flour as needed to make the mixture a thick pie-filling consistency.
10) Ladle meat mixture into prepared pastry-lined pans and put top crusts in place.
11) Mix the egg yolk, olive oil and basil pesto in a cup whisk to bend, brush on top crust and score (perforate) top crust
12) Place pies in pans on middle rack of oven at 375 deg.F. for 30-40 min or until top crust is flaky and browned

  • I use a large electric fry-pan for this but any large skillet that can contain the total ingredients and be covered is OK
  • ¼ the ingredient list for 1-9” pie or 3-5” pies and then the pastry recipe will do you without multiplying it
  • The cream is essential…you may balk at putting cream and beer in the same pan put believe me it makes the finished product unique and well worth while.
  • The store-bought pastry is faster, easy to use and tasted just as good. Try to find the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, they are great for this and especially good for making smaller 5” pies because the trims can be rolled and reused to make more crusts Sobeys usually has this in the dairy case next to the Pillsbury croissants.

This malty confection makes the best savoury meat pies I ever tasted…and I don’t like pastry but this is pure ambrosia to the palate and well into the “comfort food” genre. Served with a tall tankard of crafted ale this is a meal fit to savor as Rome burns around you.

Transnationalist Agenda For Global Federation Not A New Concept

"Subdue yourselves to the federation of the world"
( H.G.Wells)

H.G. Wells is probably renown in modern culture as the father of science fiction. “War of the Worlds“, "The Time Machine" and other of his novels were transformed into modern Hollywood horror genre epics. Selectively culled from popular culture info on Wells, is that he authored numerous books and essays which were not of the science fiction genre.They were distinctly social-political in nature and are distinguished from is sci-fi thrillers by the distasteful social Darwinist elitism they convey. The “New World Order“, and the “Open Conspiracy” are two notable pieces of social political commentary that Wells produced.

Wells wrote the first edition of “The Open Conspiracy” in 1928. This book details what Wells called the “Open Conspiracy” among the intellectual and political class elites of the day who despised the old order of things (most notably the sovereign nation state and commoner influence in law and government). He was made privy to their desire to work towards a grand world directorate, a global society in which individuals no longer hold fast to tradition, but yield themselves willingly to the world state for the good of all. This agenda was particularly popular with his contempories like George Bernard Shaw, the Huxleys, Darwins, Wedgewoods and Clement Attlee to name a few in the Fabian society. Wells' "Open Conspiracy" utilizes propaganda, educational and governmental reform, and other forms of influence to advance the goals of its author . The scientific management of the world (martial technocracy) is at the heart of the open conspirators agenda. Of course, this rigid, top down, elitist management of humanity is sold as being for the benefit of all. As in all autocratic schemes it is always the elite controlling class which receive the bulk of the "benefits".

Population control through genetic culturing and eugenics is named by Wells in the Open Conspiracy as a “primary condition” of the world directorate. Wells writes,

“There is a clear hope that, later, directed breeding will come within his [mankind’s] scope, but that goes beyond his present range of practical achievement, and we need not discuss it further here. Suffice it for us here that the world community of our desires, the organized world community conducting and ensuring its own progress, requires a deliberate collective control of population as a primary condition.

We want watchful and understanding guardians and drivers of complex delicate machines, which can be mishandled and brutalized and spoilt all too easily. The less disposed these masters of our machines are to inordinate multiplication, the more room and food in the world for their ampler lives. Even to the lowest level of a fully-mechanicalized civilization it is required that the human element should be select.

A succinct and candid summary of Wells’ idea of a centrally federated global regime can be found in the introduction that he wrote for prominent eugenicist Margaret Sanger in her book “Pivot of Civilization“, written in 1922. Wells speaks with an authoritarian and elitist tone in condemning the world for misusing the “gifts” that the elite have so kindly presented to mankind. He transposes these appalling thoughts to words;

“The New Civilization is saying to the Old now: “We cannot go on making power for you to spend upon international conflict. You must stop waving flags and bandying insults. You must organize the Peace of the World; you must subdue yourselves to the Federation of all mankind. And we cannot go on giving you health, freedom, enlargement, limitless wealth, if all our gifts to you are to be swamped by an indiscriminate torrent of progeny. We want fewer and better children who can be reared up to their full possibilities in unencumbered homes, and we cannot make the social life and the world-peace we are determined to make, with the ill-bred, ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens that you inflict upon us.”

With this one paragraph, Wells succeeds in presenting the full intent of population control: total domination.

So we see the elements expressed by modern transnationalists in the environmental, resource sustainability and global corporatism cliques running the UN NGOs, being expressed by the archetype Tranzies in Wells' era. Those being: central planning and control of populations, economies, resources...everything, including the population, becomes the communal property of the global state under fiefdom of a central governing elite. There is no room for individualism, democracy or commoner input into the policy making mechanisms of this "federation".

Almost 100 years after Wells and the Fabian and Rhodes round table transnationalists, we see their ideals entrenched in a modern Tranzi "stonehenge"...which is in reality a tombstone for individual rights, personal and national independence and the nation state that protects these out moded machinations of the "old order".

Carved in stone it reads:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.

9 in 10 people will have to vanish from the earth to bring about this transnational "Utopia".

From Marxists to Transnational Progressives: A look at the left's slow, mutated journey to the New World Order

Transnational progressivism”…now there’s a jawbreaker to pronounce and a head-banger to conceptualize. First time I heard it mentioned on a political blog, I shrugged it off as just another vacant academic toss-off phrase that must’ve discharged from some nameless cloistered elite mind-farting in public. Then I came across this article by John Fonte

Fonte observes that elite institutions in western culture from the national council of churches to the UN and it's plethora of NGOs are embarked upon an active path to destroy the concept of the sovereign nation state and it's empowered individual and displace the influenece of the elected governments of these separate sovereign states with regional or global regulatory bureaucracies. He also observed that for some unknown reason all the governments in these sovereign western free nation-states seem on a self destructive course in being determined to deliver themselves up to this weakened national sovereignty and transnational governance. Fonte published his observations in the summer 2002 edition of the Hudson Institute Orbis magazine.

A profound observation by Mr. Carr. The collective dogmatic left has indeed grown up and left it;s small domestic pond and gone international in scope. Mutated from revolutionary tadpoles to mammon monopolisers and bureaucratic moguls in agenda and as such have attracted an economic and political elite to the helm of the movement. This new international leftist elite (transnational progressivist or “Tranzies”) to whom the acquisition of both power and wealth has been a generational quest, have taken up the cause of the old left and sculpted the new global left ideologies to fit their long term agendas. Gone is the economic class struggle of Marx as the new middle class tyranny of a global bureaucratic feudal elite emerges from the old revolutionary left populist crusades. But this was destined to natural off-shoot of communism becoming populist in postmodernist western culture and going global in scope.

Communism, or more accurately centralized socialism, is not a movement of the down-trodden masses but of the economic elite….the natural extension of this is global socialism which the “Tranzies” promote. If one understands that socialism is NOT a share the wealth plan but a politically actuated plan to consolidate power and control a nation’s wealth, then the paradox of super rich men promoting global socialism (or transnational progressivism) becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes logical, even the perfect tool for wealthy power-seeking megalomaniacs.

What we have to see when viewing the machinations and ideals of the new left/”Tranzie” movement, is that two historic polar opposite philosophies have found common ground in a common control agenda. In the past, the radical left was always defined by it’s big government interventionist statism... its trend toward police state enforcement of dyslexic utopian egalitarianism…in contrast, the radical right was defined by it's big business-corporatist-monopolist economic feudalism and social darwinism...its tendency to politically empower a economic elite and form economic feudalist “baronage” among silent ruling class oligarchs…in the transnational progressivist movement there are elements of both these radical agendas in a convenient practical marriage. That ideological “marriage" has made the Tranzie movement the most formidable danger free men have faced since escaping the tyranny of the age of Kings. The danger lies in the common element glueing these global control orthodoxies is the disempowerment of the individual. The age of the comman man is at a wane....the rise of NGO regulatory pwer is the symptomatic evidence and return to the empowered idividual is the cure to keep unaccountable global autocrats at bay...the empowered individual thrives in the soveriegn constitutional-commonlaw nation state.

The coming global administration will be no respecter of your individual or civil freedoms. From the behavior of Tranzies in domestic office today we can see they are headed towards some form of racialist police state being imposed (Multicult/diversity enforcement being a machination of “Tranzie” statism). A state where the elites will encourage the supposed historically oppressed to get even with their former oppressors and provide that opportunity through the perversion of the legal and governing systems will/has emerged...a sort of defacto tyranny of minorieites supported by a white-bread ruling elite.

This is the first installment on the transnational progressivist globalism…

....coming up next we will explore this pluralist “group rights” concept of “Tranzism” being the antithesis of constitutional democracy concepts of the individual being the central political unit:

“Among the main concepts of Transnational Progressivism is the notion that the key political unit is not the individual who forms voluntary associations and works with his fellow citizens regardless of their race, sex or national origin, it is the ascriptive group – racial, ethnic or gender – into which one is born.”

Political landscape: How it really lays out

I have been doing a lot of blog hopping and commenting lately to political blogs of all stripes. I keep seeing a singularly insideous phenomina reoccuring in most of these blogs posts. That being: the use of political brand labeling and the old ( discredited) "left-right" political spectrum map.

I have written enough about how I have come to realize that political labels and the old left-right/Tory-Liberal/Republican-Democrat partisan tribalism is a mistake and no longer applicable to the homogeneous politics at play in all branded parties......the ideologies and mindsets that drive politics today defy the currrent labeling and certainly are more complex that the simple 2 dimensional Left-right spectrum.

As I see it, political ideologies reflect 7 distinct groups of thought that I will briefly list here on a scale that measues practical governing diligence of these political camps as they relate to mindset and end they are listed here with the most repressive at the top to the most free and the bottom:

Type 1:
"Classic Imperilist" (Imperial Rome, European Kindoms, Aristocracy, modern globaism):
I am chosen by birth right and divine destiny to rule over the soiled masses and have them do my bidding, till my fields, fight my wars of expansion and service the needs of the nobility class I create to uphold my absolute authority. My whim and will is not to be questioned, it is the extention of divine provedence. The greed, averice, corruption and profligacy of my ilk is above the law.

Type 2:
" Revolutionary" ( Terrorist/anarchist/ Marxist/): Personal trama has caused an abnormal personality disorder in me. I spend most of my waking hours focusing my hatred and anger from this past event upon a percieved "political" enemy and wrapping my uncivil criminal and violent agenda in a sanitizing cloak of "a people's political cause". The immediate result of my revolution ranges from social deconstruction and balkanization to anarchy and genocide. The governments I may form rely on fear, intimidation and tyranny to control dissent to my authority. Revolutionary "leaders" share the megalomania of "type 1" autocrats.

Type 3:
" socialist" ( Libber-Dipper) : I am basically a sociopathic elitist and have resentment and contempt for most people…this is why I support a party/dogma that treats them all like the stupid greedy children they are. If I can avoid common donkeywork and feather my own nest by organizing/engineering the lives of these hopeless cattle my philosophical goals are met. If I can portray my base instincts and anti-social agendas as moral superiority and be exalted as a commoner's demigod, my intellectual needs are met.

Type 4:
“Progressive” (Conservative/Liberal): We condemn these elitist social engineering policy assumptions of public retardation and dependence on patronizing subsidy, however we support all the government programs which use them as a basic assumption….besides big government = job security for the unproductive political class (progressives).

Type 5:
Populist (CPC) : I have always felt disempowered and want a say. If folks vote for big Gummint and Kleptocratic welfare statism folks should get big Gummint and Kleptocratic welfare statism, as long as it’s ratified by the majority and we get to look over the cooked books once in a while. A democratic majority can justify anything. As long as democratic process is served the mob matter what it is they want.

Type 6:
"Libertarian" (Classic Liberals; JS Mill, Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, and Milton Friedman) :
I have been directly deprived of property and prosperity by the actions of large out of control government. Therefore I believe the government which governs least governs best , the sole object and only legitimate end of government is to protect the individual citizen in the enjoyment of life, liberty, and property, and when the government assumes other functions it is usurpation and oppression. Three groups spend other people's money: children, thieves, and politicians. All three need close supervision and accountability.

Type 7:
"Constitutionalist" (free patriots, Andrew Jackson, William Lyon Mackenzie ):
I have suffered personal loss from government greed and corruption. I realize fear is the foundation of most governments, and the law and constitution must limit the amount of coercive fear a government can hold over its constituents. People should not be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people. When government fears the people we have civil democracy when people fear the government we have statist tyranny. A publicly accountable executive bureaucracy and judiciary and the civilian right to arms and self defense are the best insurance against tyranny of the state.

We have not seen "type 1" for some time but disciples to this political belief system do survive today and they have gravitated to global political policy organizations which have undue influence on sovereign free state government....CFR, Trilateral, Bilberberg groups, Club of Rome, UN policy committees...all good examples of the type 1 political personality.

Type 2 pretty much ran it's course in the early and mid 20th century and its 2 largest experiments failed and now embrace mid- 19th century "robber baron" ologopolist capitalism. We see "romantics" in the decadent American and European urban landscapes keep the romance of the revolutionaries alive in Campus fringe politics and far left social causes. Castro refuses to die but when he does Cuba will follow Russia and China into corrupted globalist capitalism...that leaves us Kim in Koera and his pals in the Islamic Jihadi movements as type 2 proponents...their Mullahs are losing ground daily to western liberalism.

In North America we had our nations founded by type 7 and 6 politics but have degenerated to types 5, 4 and 3 as particapatory democracy declines and accountability of government is obscured by the expansion of the centralized mega-state and the limited information from a controlled corporate media. Type 6and 7 politics arises mostly in patriotic fringe politics these days which the decadent and corrupt power brokers of type 3,4,5 politics would dearly like to falsely label as a type 2 "terrorism" and purge from the political landscape in North is a sad statement on North American decline that we have devolved from Libertarian Constitutionalists into populist-socialist-progressives who see the nation's founding principles as "dangerous".

So in summary all politics in play in modern governnace these days fit one or a combination of the 7 types of state craft. It is statecraft we see at the street level NOT Partisan is political brand loyalty hokum and partisan roll playing we see in the public political is a branded, packaged product of manipulative tribalizing bunk...all practial applications of politics at play in Canadian governing show a mixture of types 3 through 5 which spreads widely throughout the party system...there is no pure conservative, liberal or socialist party.....they have elements of type 3/4/5 in all parties.....that is how vastly compromised politics have become in the modern super state..

..the result is our democracies are becoming stagnated and politically inbred by a defacto single party state that hands off leaders in an election every 4 years.

Calls for equal application of the Law called "outsider public mischief" By Cop Brass

I have a lengthy response to a rightfully outraged citizen who is being sytematically slandered by Ontraio's politicized police funtion. Mark Vandermaas from VOC takes exception to the political spin being put on his principled stand against "descretionary" law enforcement.

Indeed the best post and most important ethic enunciated in this debate. My admiration goes out to both Jim and you for articulating such an obvious moral truth which is being obscured under a deep blanket of official political spin.

The side which is running a deceitful political gambit on this issue (and that ain't your side Mark) is advocating a corrupt 3rd world police state solution of politically motivated selective law enforcement...this is being disguised with weasel words like "officer discretion" and “ keeping the peace at all costs”...sorry but “police discretion” and “policies” do not trump our personal charter guaranteed civil rights to express concern over unrequited criminal violations…regardless of contrarian hot air emitted from polce function talking heads...this is obvious to anyone with eyes and a brain that is detached from officialdom's propaganda control grid.

As you have pointed out Mark, one of the reoccurring themes used by these corrupt statists attempting to subvert your principled civil indignation to the displayed double standards in the rule of law, is to stigmatize you as "outsiders" and “trouble makers” and paint a negative connotation to this....of course, to any thinking reasoning Canadian, this weak pretext the police statists want us to swallow is pure bunkum. They expect us to swallow the perverse logic of righteous civil indignation to open civil injustice as being rightfully restricted ONLY to those effected...that anyone who is not a resident in the immediate locale where an ongoing crime is being committed should have no opinion and have no constitutional say in the matter...they are "outsiders".("Outside" the sphere of McGuinty’s double standard martial law zone?)

But this myopic and civilly irreprehensible argument ignores the fact that in a civilized constitutional democracy when one citizen's rights and reputation are openly violated by uncivil authority...we have all have been attacked by extension...because if it can happen to one person it can just as easily happen to us all....and if we allow a constitutional breech and civil injustice to stand unchallenged, a precedent has been set for further abuse of the rule of law by recusant authority and criminals alike.

All free Canadians are affected by authoritarian inequity committed on our fellow a more universal sense, all men are effected by injustice and's called human empathy... an officially tolerated crime against one is a breech of justice to us all...this principle sent Canadians off to die on foreign shores defending oppressed peoples from criminal injustice…this Jim has so emotionally articulated.

Tyranny is defined as a state where there is no civil justice for the oppressed and where the law exists to protect the oppressor.

Caledonia is a microcosm of this definition...and it SHOULD trouble "outsiders"!!....if they have a modicum of civil ethos, empathy and civil self respect. The people of Caledonia are under constant threat by an ongoing criminal action which the police function continues to tolerate. The Ontario police function in Caledonia has demonstrated they will not make arrests of criminals of a certain race and ethnicity due to a political directive given them from Government which operates aside and apart from the constitutionally demanded process of the rule of law. This political directive over riding our constitution has left citizens of this town at the mercy of the tolerated lawlessness of a politically defined ethnic group. Section 15 of the charter is in tatters in Caledonia. This state of lawless intimidation has existed for over a year.

These besieged Caledonia citizens need help…they need help from all Canadians who value the uncorrupted rule of law…..because this COULD come to YOUR community if you do nothing….You are NOT an “outsider”…every Canadian who watches an ongoing crime which police refuse to resolve is a witness to a crime…you are involved…if you don not want to march in the cold for your fellow Canadian’s rights to be free from “discretionary” lawlessness…then write a letter to your MPP and MP and the PM….write a letter to an editor…do something…you are not an “outsider” you are a witness to a crime…a breech of your charter and this nation’s equitable rule of law!

Obviously the police state attitudes making the "official" public statements on this matter feel Mark and Gary’s civil responsibility and human empathy as "outsiders" should be criminalized...or at least publicly defamed….They are claiming a police monopoly on interpretation of the law and the constitution…they are replacing/ignoring the courts in their thought word and deeds.

When you get this attitude from the people who are charged with protecting our charter rights, you know our freedoms and democracy are in serious decay from "official" neglect.

Sorry for the length of this missive Mark but your post inspired me to get more people involved and politically active in restoring the rule of law in Caledonia-Canada…last time I looked Caledonia was not “outside” Ontario or Canada.

A Matter Of Priorities Part II

Last installment of TRFB we had a look at the dyslexic optics Ontario Kleptocrats have concerning prorities. We looked a stark duality of prority between how the government treats its bureaucratic nobility and how it deals with the common serfdom.

As usual McGuinty's Leviathan does not disappoint and continues to provide a richness of uncivil caustic irony for this writer to fume over.

Two seemingly exclusive items left festering in the back pages of the GTA media have rather great significance when viewed from the perspective of any dreamer hoping for any return of normal morality in the governing leviathan.

First this ditty: "Members of the Ontario legislature voted overwhelmingly in favour today of giving themselves a 25 per cent pay hike. Every Liberal and Progressive Conservative member in the legislature today voted in favour of the bill. Only four New Democrats voted against it"

Ah huh, I see... only 4 philistine unionists vote against a Bizzaro is that?

Then we recall this little pellet of Leviathan faeces: "Conservative Leader John Tory said Tuesday the seven-month aboriginal standoff in the town just outside of Hamilton has cost taxpayers about $55 million -- including $30 million in policing costs, $20 million to buy the disputed land and $330,000 to pay negotiator Jane Stewart's salary. "

I guess the Tories forgot the millions in compensation they voted for ( along with the McGuinty Libranos) to pay Calidonia retailers and other property owners and the Millions in promised budgetary hush money to the County of Haldimand and the town council of Calidonia to keep mum about all the incidents of violence and property damage caused by the suspension of the rule of law in Caledonia by McGuinty's Mounties (OPP). If they admit to $55 million then you know it's closer to 60-70 million with all the other expenses burried in operational budgets providing plausable deniability in cost-linking them to this needless Caledonia dispute.

Dyslexic Optics & Bizzaro Value Systems:
So what can we pull from these two latest revelations about Leviathan's distorted civil optics and bizzaro value systems? Well, put it this way; I wonder if Dolton's hand was shaking when he grabbed the 25% pay increase he voted himself....was there even a moment of guilt for taking a reward for such dismal mismanagement of the public funds and the rule of law? Similarly the opposition should have rejected this pay increase out of principle as they have been no opposition at most cases rubberstamping or having minor technical complaints about McGuinty's wonton squandering of the public trust.

From our perspective ( the tax burdened struggling middle class) we have to wonder what euphoric drugs they are passing out in government that allows them to think that a dismal and semi criminal work record is grounds for a pay hike and not a pink slip or a jail cell.

Next installment of "Priorities" we will look at the crisis in civil optics of the McGuinty crime syndicate, as he continues to allow leviathan to deficate on the constitution, civil liberty and the charter.
