Politicking

the computer demands a blog

Well, the computers have spoken, so I guess I’d better write something here.

The Canadian federal budget came down yesterday, and it appears that political parties can be bought after all. I’m looking at you, Bloc Quebècois. When one party is so single-minded and can be bought for a price — while ignoring the lack of any real action on environmental policy, long-term transportation strategies, and the First Nations — the federal system fails miserably.

The budget throws tax cuts at the middle class (myself included) essentially to distract them from the lack of attention to the above three national crises. It’s a classic distraction worthy of a magic act. It makes me fucking sick.

I’m still practicing my Xs though.
