God damned IE... crashed, I had a big post written. Oh well. Again, but shorter.
projekt: the wealth was the problem! The walkerton water system was privatised, the guy who actually earned his job owning it gave it to his two sons,
who slacked off and didn't measure the chlorine levels, which allowed the particular e.coli through. In a less-wealthy, less-privatized system, that
wouldn't have happened, because the #ers running the water would know how to run the damned water.
falcon: Big or little, it is a hike nonetheless, and people hate hearing that, ESPECIALLY when they vote in the Conservatives. Joe Clark was called
out in a few months for his tax hike idea, I personally like it, we pay now, and we live tomorrow, but an 18% tax on all gasoline? christ, that killed
silver: If I had any insight into how the extreme left works, I would be so far left that my world would have no right, It would be only left, all
directions. The problem is, money must be pulled out of your ass! The left wants to pump up spending and save money. It's a bit of a contradiction
when you think about it. Spend more, lose less. + = - , It's crazy!
Now, the whole 'cut off the cream and go with the efficiency' deal would be great, but its a bureaucracy here, we aren't going to do that, it would
need a militant takeover or its political equivalent (ahem, Green Party) to change our damn system, and while we all want to do it, we'd be corrupted
or fail, its that simple.
I _really_ like this board.
