New Brunswick Election Disaster

I’m suffering from a rare form of heartburn. The kind that would knock down a mule. Unfortunately, tums isn’t going to cure it. I usually wind up with this type of stomach pain every four years or so, when a provincial election in New Brunswick is called. The cramps first hit me hard when Premier Shawn Graham decided to bail out Atcon to the tune of over 70 million bucks a few years back. The whole thing screamed of scandal, and when it was all over he was hit with a measly fine for being in conflict of interest. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m pretty sick and tired of how corrupt the picture province has become. “BE IN THIS PLACE” must have been a slogan for corporate giants and crooked politicians. It certainly isn’t the place to be if you are a hard working citizen looking to raise a family. Our standard of living keeps dropping, our children keep moving out west, and our taxes keep going up. Meanwhile, the province is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. With an election looming on the horizon, the idiots have all come out to play, like a bunch of bats under a spotlight. Brian Gallant is dancing around the fracking issue, like Pinocchio before Geppetto cut his strings. He’s saying he’ll call a moratorium on the issue, but if he gets elected he’ll do whatever the puppet masters tell him. If they decide to turn New Brunswick into a toxic dumping site for gold mines and nuclear power plants, he’ll do it. He won’t have a choice. Premier Alward is not one to be trusted either. Right now he’s pushing through the worst forestry deal in the history of the province. More pepto please. He’s in a hurry, because he’s afraid if he loses the election, the deal won’t go through. Why not let the voters decide if they want to decimate their province’s forests to please Irving? Because, potentially, the voters aren’t the ones lining his pockets. Much like the crooked Atcon deal, this stinks all the way to the high heavens.   If the Greens, NDP and People’s Alliance parties had two clues, they would amalgamate  immediately and have a fighting chance against Corrupt and Corrupter. But they won’t. They still seem to be under the misguided impression that they can actually form a government here. But they can’t. Our somewhat blind population seems to be stuck in a political rut that is dragging our province to the poorhouse. What is it going to take to make New Brunswickers see that we’re almost ruined? What is the solution to this age old, two party pork fest that we’re catering? More antacids I guess…. … Continue reading

Solving Political Problems

Anybody who reads my blog knows I have some pretty radical ideas and opinions. For instance, I think George W. Bush should be tried as a war criminal and face the consequences, no matter how dire. And I also think … Continue reading

Let it snow…somewhere else!

Here we go again.  I haven’t complained much about the government lately, not because they have gotten smarter.  Far from it.  The truth is, my hectic work schedule hasn’t allowed me to blog as much as I’d like, so I’ve … Continue reading
