Thank you, Rick Mercer!

For eloquently saying what I have been feeling about the coalition movement for the past month or so....

Rick's Rant - Parliament and the Need to be Informed

We all need to know certain, basic facts about our own governmental system. Who's to blame? The education system? Parents? Let's just stop playing the blame game, take responsibility, and inform ourselves. Sheesh, I bet we could all learn a few things from a 5th Grade civics class....if there still is such a thing.

Are You Kidding Me?

I'll get back to politics in a tic - it all got too ghastly to deal with, especially when I was in Ottawa with 35 cm of snow, -20 degrees and transit strike.

But I have to really wonder what our fellow citizens and media are doing these days. Take a look at these headlines from the Calgary Herald:

Alberta rig count at lowest level since '93
Land sale prices hit 10-year low
TSX slips up on oil drop
Calgary home sales slide to lowest since '96

And then this gem:

Canadians not deflated about economic outlook

Huh? Unbelievable. Stay tuned folks - it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
