The money just keeps going out the door...

I haven't had much time recently to blog about the issues, but I have noticed one thing about this government. They have an uncanny ability to spend large amounts of the taxpayers money on very little. Whether its big signs on GO train cars across the lakeshore line around the GTA, or big signs on Stone Road in Guelph talking about a bike lane, or even commercials on big american tv shows, this government has become an ad agency's dream.

It is all very reminiscent of the late 1990's where the Ontario Tories cut and snipped everything but spend lots of money on advertising how great their plans for education were. It scammed voters for one election, before they were given the boot in 2003, and hopefully this won't be the case Federally.

Running up a huge deficit while only spending stimulus on advertising, while projects rot and wait is a sure fire way to not help the economy. If Harper thought calling Paul Martin "Mr. Dithers" was amusing, what should we call Harper and his gang of free spending republicans. That is what i leave up to you the reader. I think the Bush Tories is a good start.

As soon as the big news is the flu vaccines, you find out how busy they were in the meantime....this is one big nightmare.I really wonder how much of taxpayers money they are spending and putting us further and further into deficit and debt?..all done by stealth.
