Getting The Facts

  • The fact is that the “conscientious” recognize that the election-road ahead has a left and a right fork . The left goes recklessly downhill following the biased signage – of more, while the right struggles uphill to prosperity – hinting at the timeliness of – less.

    We may be indebted to the “conscientious” voter for his responsible vision, while driving into the fog of media bias.

  • The old joke says that you can tell when a politician is lying: His lips move.

    It’s getting to the point that most media outlets seem to be displaying extreme levels of bias- CBC and CTV definitely biased against the Conservatives. I challenge anyone to watch Power and Politics and not detect Rosie Barton’s Pro-NDP bias. If someone representing the Conservative point of view ever starts to make a reasonable argument, she shouts questions and objections to drown out the argument.
    Hopefully, if the Conservatives win the election they will cut about $500-million from their budgets. They get something like $980-million per year in subsidies and act like they are really the official opposition.
    I get a real kick out of the union ads that say the Conservatives are clear cutting the civil service. Until recently, they had actually increased the number of civil servants. It’s not like most people view the civil service with reverence and awe, quite the contrary, most ordinary people think civil servants are overpaid and underworked.

  • Bill, thank you for your incisive remarks about the three parties and their inability to deal with the simple truth and campaign in a meaningful way.

  • If you apply the 3-monkey formula of ‘see no evil etc” to whatever any politician presents , you are much more likely to be correct than not and this applies ‘in spades’ during an election campaign……
