Dalton Goes to Harvard

June 29th, 2013

I love this idea:

Apparently Dalton McGuinty is moving to Harvard. Lets make sure his reputation follows him. I understand that people are writing to the President of the University to let him know how fucked up this decision is.

You can email the President of Harvard at and let him know why McGuinty has shown neither the ability nor the ethics for a major University.

Some poiints to consider:

  • Ontario Debt to GDP has risen steadily since McGuinty became Premier, from 27%  to 37% now – it is projected to rise to 40.4% in 3 years.
  • Net debt has doubled in that time, from approximately $150-million in 2003 to $300-million now.
  • The latter half of the Mike Harris years, from 1999-2002, Ontario had a small surplus. When McGuinty took over from Ernie Eves, there was a $5.4-billion deficit, which McGuinty represented has an example of horrific book-keeping. The deficit will be $15.2-billion this year, with laughable (and now thrown out the window) projections of balance by 2016.
  • His government has been  scandal plagued since day one, with E-Health and Ornge Air Ambulance spending scandals, his alternate energy act, which amounted to a public payout to Samsung for no discernible benefit and now the closing of 2 natural gas generator plants for purely political reasons. The costs of this decision has risen from $45-million then, to a possible $900-million (Oh hell, lets call it a billion and be done with it) now.
  • He may be the most compulsive liar ever to darken the political doorstep.
  • Ontario has gone from a have Province, making a national contribution to the economy, to a have not, recieving equalization funds from the national economy. We went from Alberta to Quebec in one Premier.

There’s more, but that’s a good starting point. Perhaps if enough Ontarians let Harvard know we feel they are hiring a man of such little ability and honesty, unqualified for either the ethics or economics department, they will re-think this decision.

In The Famous Words of Inigo Montoya

June 26th, 2013

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”inigo_montoya

I think we need to be honest about the exercise that is unfolding… I would appreciate that kind of honesty

Dalton McGuinty lecturing anybody on honesty is like Bill Clinton giving an harangue on fidelity, or Richard Nixon on ethics. It’s cringeworthy at best. I’ve seen a lot of politicians tell a lot of lies, but Dalton McGuinty is the one who is the most congenitally incapable of speaking the truth. From day one this smarmy little man has smirked and lied to the people of Ontario. And as his $40-million seat save has risen to $585-million, which is turning to $900-million, McGuinty once again smirks and promises to respect Ontarians in the morning.

But that’s our Dalton: A lie, wrapped up in a lecture on honesty, surrounded by an untruth.

Good riddance!

You know, with Kathleen Wynne’s tax increasesbehind the scenes deal makinginvolving herself where she has no business being, already whining about how the Feds won’t spend on her behalf and the perverts she surrounds herself with, I was beginning to miss Dalton McGuinty

Senior Ontario Liberal political staff were breaking the law when they hit delete on emails that could have shed light on why the government cancelled two gas plants at a cost of $585 million, Information and Privacy Commissioner Dr. Ann Cavoukian says.

The commissioner found that emails sent and received by former chiefs of staff to the minister of energy and former premier Dalton McGuinty were deliberately deleted…

Hey, there he is. Welcome back Dalton.

So you voted for Dalton Mcguinty: how’s that working out for you?


Say your a teacher, had to have him. Heaven forbid Tim Hudak win, and you have to deal with someone overseeing the tax-payers money who counts it before he hands it out. So you put together a website two elections in a row, the Working Families Coalition you called it. You spent a fortune of non-election expense dollars. You would have your guy no matter what: democracy be damned. Stand up guy that Dalton, yes?

the head of the local secondary teachers‘ union said he’d be shocked if teachers did start volunteering again after having their democratic rights “stomped on” by Minister of Education Laurel Broten

Ah yes, those democratic rights.

The thing is, I’m somewhat sympathetic to the teachers position. They’re right, instead of negotiating in any recognizable form of good faith, he bullied them with legislation, forced them to take his terms. If a private sector employer tried to do what he did, the like of Dalton McGuinty would have them in front of the magistrate. Problem is, this is who McGuinty is, this is who he has been for ten years now, and he is the teachers guy. They went all in for him, and the fact he treated you like you are a rural landowner should surprise you not. The fact it does surprise the teachers, combined with the fact they are in charge of developing our young people’s critical thinking, is worrying.

But never mind the teachers. You didn’t vote for Dalton McGuinty because of the teachers. Living in a lakefront condo in downtown Toronto you have no kids to be taught – or to pay the tab for all these expenditures over their working lives. No, what you care about is that your morning (and late afternoon) latte is steamed using carbon-free electricity. You vote for the Dalton because you love the environment, and so does he.

Last spring an eagle built a nest on the ledge of one of the neighboring condos. The person who lives in the apartment overlooking the nest set up a webcam and ran live streaming video 24/7 of the eagle and her eaglets. After your long day of work you would come home and drink half-a-bottle of California Zinfandel watching the eaglets. It was so inspiring. So, you see, you care about the environment, and therefore you vote McGuinty because of the green energy act. It’s all about the eaglets…

(H/t SDA)

Ah, but maybe you don’t need to work for Nextera to know: it’s Stephen Harper’s fault. For example, healthcare.

Worked all your life, paid those taxes, that rotten Tim Hudak would have imposed user fees to access the system you’ve been paying into all your life. It was hard saving money while working, raising a family and paying 40% of what you make to the government, but you did it, and now you can enjoy those retirement years. Last thing you want or need is a healthcare user fee:

Ontario will consider co-payments based on income for home care services currently provided at no cost to the province’s seniors.

C’est la vie. Your just a kid anyway. Not yet old enough to vote, or just old enough and you wandered down to the makeshift polling booth at the University of Guelph. Put your big old X right there beside McGuinty, Dalton (L). Hey, it’s your future, and you want to own it. Congratulations, you just bought it, all of it, lock stock and barrel. Not that you’ll like what you bought, but make no mistake, when the bills come due, you’ll be the guy paying. Those healthcare user fees? You won’t believe the fees they have by the time you get there. That 40% tax rate to pay for all that free healthcare? it’ll be closer to 60% than 40 by the time your done, and the only free healthcare will be the healthcare your grandpa got and left that big bill for.

And then there’s E-Health, Ornge and a whack of other spending scandals. You’ll pay for all of it, but don’t ask where the money went: Finance Minister Dwight Duncan has a word for people who do that: cowards.

Poll Dancing

September 13th, 2011
Comments Off on Poll Dancing

Well, the polls tell us I’m not the most popular guy in the country. I accept that. Doing what’s right is not always what’s popular.

The above is from Premier Dad, Dalton McGuinty on a Liberal TV commercial. Speaking in the third person, he knows we aren’t happy with him. And how does he know? Well, the polls tell them. Hey, Dad’s a tough job: it’s not his job to be Premier Friend. If you don’t like the decisions he makes on your behalf, his big Premier shoulders can take it. If it wasn’t for him you would be in your bed, instead of running about, doing dishes and washing clothes until all hours of the night.

pole-dancing-leanbackHere’s a question: how much better would life in this country be, how much better would politics be if the Premier didn’t need a poll to tell him he’s unpopular? If he knew because the guy in the donut line told him so, wouldn’t he also have a much better idea the real cost of some of his policies?

Here’s another question: what tough decision has Dalton McGuinty made? In his 8 years on power government spending has increased between 50% and 80%, depending on who’s study your reading. Inflation, meanwhile, has been in the 9% mark in that time. In other words, government growth has outpaced economic growth by a factor of between 6% and 9%. What’s tough about that kind of spending, unless you’re the poor sap paying for it?

Oh sure there’s been unpopular decisions. If you live in a rural area and now have a forest of 60 foot tall wind turbines in your backyard, your none too happy. But unpopular decisions are easy when you don’t have to face the people who’s property value you ruined. Nothing tough about Warren Kinsella – or some other lackey -walking in the room with a piece of paper and saying, John Smith of Leander Street, Wolfe Island is not happy. But meeting John Smith at Tim Horton’s waiting for his morning coffee, having him tell you what you have done to his property value, how he has to go back to work at 75, because you just screwed him out of his retirement income, that’s tough. And when you need the polls to tell you that you are not popular, then you aren’t meeting the people who vote for you at Tim Horton’s.

Besides, who voted for Dalton McGuinty to make unpopular decisions? This is a democracy, and we vote for politicians to enact our wishes, not to make decisions we won’t like. Of course he hasn’t done that, never asked anybody of they want an HST, never asked the people of Wolfe Island if they want their community turned into a wind farm. He has decided, without the authority of the electorate, against the wishes of communities. Yes, that’s unpopular.

Its also undemocratic.

The $1B E-Health scandal wasn’t a bug, it was a feature:


If this were the French Revolution, by now tumbrels would be rolling up University Avenue…

For those of you who wonder why we’re taxed to death…

Your money is being thrown into a black abyss to pay for well connected insiders…

“In auditing language… the fix was in…”

…consultants are being paid for fancy hotels and Christmas lunches out of tax money…

He (a hospital consultant)charged hundreds of dollars a night for fancy accommodation – $700 a night for five nights in Singapore alone…

…one (dinner)costing $300 for three people – including $140 for booze…

Read the whole thing. It’s appalling, but par for the course for this gang of liars. Sure hope one of them doesn’t become mayor of Toronto.

If you don’t like the policy, wait around 6 months, it’ll change:

March 2010:

If I was to knock on 1,000 Ontario families‘ doors and ask them for their top three concerns, I’d be surprised if anybody said, `Well … one of those is we’ve got to start this new kind of mixed martial arts in Ontario. That’s going to mean a lot to me and my family,’” said McGuinty.

“It’s just not a priority for our families and it’s not a priority for me.”

August 2010:

Our government has been monitoring MMA for some time. We know that the sport has evolved and that Ontarians want to see it here.

Geez Premier Dad. You’re on about it’s not a priority for you, then you say you’ve been monitoring it for some time. Which is it?

And if Ontarians want to see it here, can we presume that if you knocked on “1,000 Ontario families‘ doors and ask them for their top three concerns,” somebody would say MMA in Ontario?

At Home in Hespeler Gets Results

April 22nd, 2010

With a little help from my friends:

It’s become pretty obvious to us that we need to give this (changing the provinces sex-ed curriculum)a serious rethink. I know that parents are in fact, supportive of the idea that children should be taught about their body parts, and relationships, and those kinds of things, but they are obviously not comfortable with the proposal we’ve put forward.

I’m giving myself (and Kate, especially Kate) the credit because, hey, Dalton’s not going to.

As Dalton himself said:

It’s just not a priority for our families and it’s not a priority for me

But if you knocked  on 1,000 Ontario families’ doors and ask them for their top three concerns, they apparently would say I want eight year olds to be taught about homosexuality, twelve year olds the magic of oral sex.

Or is this about Dalton’s sick, twisted priorities, not Ontario families?

Next up, flavoured condoms for high school?  Hey, they’re your priorities, people.

Kicking Democracy When It’s Down

February 9th, 2010
Comments Off on Kicking Democracy When It’s Down

King Dalton the 1st today deeming the legislature unnecessary to the running of government, the members leisure more important than the people’s business, will prorogue the Provincial Legislature.

The Ontatrio MLA’s, who are currently on an extended Christmas to family day holiday, will appear for a sitting Tuesday where they will be told to go home until after the Olympics.

The Liberal government will duck questions on several issues including the handling of the Caledonia land dispute, including a Christmas holiday announcement that the government settled a lawsuit with a family claiming the police did not protect them. Other questions will include why possible criminal charges against OPP chief Julian Fantino were dropped by a Provincial Crown and why an outside Crown wasn’t appointed to review the charges. Further questions on the Provincial deficit and how the government plans to reduce it, a new all day kindergarten program were costs are spiralling out of control and why autoworkers, partially owned by both the Federal and Provincial government, don’t get Dalton’s family day to spend with their families and watch the Olympics.

Opposition MLA’s will now have to wait until March to ask those questions, causing stocks in democracy inc. to fall dramatically on the TSX. In the coming days facebook groups will sprout up as if from nowhere, university professors will release  a presser demanding this unconstitutional abuse of power be stopped and Michael Ignatieff will hold his breath until his face turns blue, proving once and for all that Dalton McGuinty is a big meany pants who can’t be trusted with power and who is less popular than this cheeto.



By press time tomorrow there will be full outrage at the Globe and Mail and Toronto Star, and the rest of the media…

Won’t there? Bueller? Anybody…

Democracy, we hardly knew ye.

Taxing Your Healthcare

December 2nd, 2009

A quick story. My son decided to play organized football last spring. We signed him up, picked up his equipment and off he went. He did eight or so practices, 2 – 2 1/2 hours of hitting drills, usually in the rain. Then one glorious, sunny Saturday it was game time, his first ever football game. Five minutes later he was lying on the field, tibia and fibula broken.

Off to the hospital he goes, where they drug him up, set the bones and give him a hip to toe plaster cast. My 80lb son had a 10lb cast hanging off his torso. The cast was a menace to the poor boy, he needed help getting out of bed because his poor leg couldn’t possibly sustain the weight of the thing. He was in more pain four days after getting the cast than he when he got it. The cast was, to be blunt, a necessary menace.

Three weeks after the Mastercard moment (A full leg cast and a painkiller grin: priceless), he went in for a check up. “Off with his cast,” the doctor, of whom I have no complaint, announced. “Half cast for this boy.” Fortunately, I noted a list on the wall that mentioned lightweight fibre casts, $40 for a child, ½ leg. “What about one of those,” I suggested. No problem.

That’s health care in Ontario: free, but were giving the 12 year old a cast that’s 10% of his body weight. Any lighter, and you pay. Two weeks later the bill arrives for $42: $40 for the cast, $2 GST. That means, of course, that a year from now the cast will cost $45.20: $40 for the cast, $2 GST and $3.20 provincial HST. Nice, they sell you the cast, then they tax it.
