You know, I'm getting real tired of people being shocked and angry when the McGuinty government demonizes them for not playing by rules that they just made up.
Not only should these people have recognized that the Liberal government has played this game with the public so many times that it's impossible to keep a count going, but if it's so important to them that the government treat them with respect, then all they have to do is shut up and vote Liberal like Jimmy Hazel and his tradespeople council did and all would have been well.
This is what happens when you create a society where everyone is dependent on the government. When the government doesn't like you anymore, it's like being pushed out of the womb.
And while (insert group here) is flailing uselessly after being targeted by the government, everyone else is quietly going about their business, thankful that it wasn't them. That's the Ontario McGuinty has created. That's his legacy.
Does that sound like "Forward, Together" to you?
You ever notice how the left likes to get mad about corporations, and how they conveniently never get mad about the government? Well, now that (some) unions are being targeted by a so-called progressive government, I wonder if they have realized that no corporation could ever have the kind of free reign that McGuinty and crew have right now.
That's a minority, absentee, lame-duck, no-cabinet-having Premier that just ripped you to shreds, ladies and gentlemen.
How did he do it? Well, for all his handicaps, he still runs this thing that people automatically give legitimacy to, and that thing is the government. And you put that government in place, and got it re-elected repeatedly.
So sit the hell down and shut the hell up.
And as for the rest of Ontario? Pray to whatever or whoever you pray to that it isn't you next time.
