Alright. I’ve been distracted this week by all the drama in Ottawa about who is going to be the federal government. Yet at the same time I’m a bit mad about it. You see in my mind we voted you guys in to run the country (which in case you don’t recall is your job). Currently that isn’t happening as just about every thing the government is supposed to doing has grind to a halt as the grown men called ‘leaders’ bicker like children over who gets the big chair in PMO’s office.
Um, excuse me. Could you cut back on the shouting like little kids and get back to passing some bills on rolling out that couple of billion in infrastructure spending you’ve previously put aside in your existing budget? Or perhaps actually finish writing done the details of your CO2 regulations so people can start actually doing something about it before they take effect in 2010! Also there is a lot of RRIF owners who need to plan how much money the need to take out of their accounts in the next 27 days!
I mean there is a whole country outside of the walls of parliament that need things to get done. We the public had our say in the election we just finished in October. You guys are our representatives, you have a mandate, so please get back to work. (I know this is an early retirement blog, but these guys are taking that even to extremes. You can’t work just over two weeks and say your done.) We the public don’t need to hear the bull crap, because you know what, we don’t get a say in this. There is exactly one person in this entire country who decide this mess: the governor general.
So I pray you all grow up in the next day or two and get back to work, because if you force us back into an election in the middle of this economic mess you are going see something you all fear: furious and hostile voters.
