A Matter Of Priorities Part II
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.
Ah huh, I see... only 4 philistine unionists vote against a raise....how 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 all....in 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.
