Toronto Star article : Eves promises cash for schools, hospitals
I don’t understand this type of politics. Shouldn’t the elected parties do the things that the citizens want them to do? And not do things of their own whims and fancies?
I don’t get it. When Mike Harris was there we get one type of message, and when Ernie Eves comes, we get a different message. Shouldn’t each individual MPP vote according to the wishes of his/her constituents, and not just follow the party line?
But it seems that Canadian political parties are based solely upon the decisions of the leader and the cabinet. The opinions of the citizens aren’t properly heard.
Mike says less cash for schools and hospitals. Ernie says more cash for schools and hospitals. Where was the public involvement in this? Why weren’t our cries heard when Mike Harris was premier?
Elections are in one year I hear, and Ernie is preparing for that. He’s seasoning the voters, “Vote for me, I have nice hair, and I’ll give more money to schools and hospitals. And after I’m elected for sure, I’ll do whatever the hell I please!!! Muahahhahaha”
Well he didn’t say that, but he might as well have.
Here’s an article I wrote way back, and I posted it on a couple of message boards this January: ARTICLE

That old law about “an eye for an eye” leaves everybody blind. Martin Luther King Jr (1929-1968)
My comments on the quote: The “new” law of “turn the other cheek” leaves half the world with no eyes, and makes the second half a powerful oppressor. What are we supposed to do? If someone is going to take my eye away, do I offer my other eye?
We should preach not to the take eyes at all. That way everyone has their eyes, everyone is happy.
“Eye for an eye” applies only when someone takes your eye. So if people stopped plucking others’ eyes out, there would be no problems. But no, we have to “turn cheeks” now.
