mj. I cleaned up my comments in this thread all day after Sonal's observations trying to raise the bar, only to have to see name calling and member bashing continue in spite of nothing derogatory from me towards gt, yet his comments go unchallenged by you or anyone else. I simply cited an example of how it really is and I make no apologies for that.

It is what it is.

And it continues:

But he's above it all you see.

But that didn't prevent you from following me around in the religious thread and bashing me there now did it?

Wonders never cease.

Sorry gt, I'm not debating you. I'm simply quoting you. Night.

Back ontopic.

Read this article, about the government remaking it's case to convince us OAS is unsustainable, although Kevin Page put a bit of a stick in the spokes of that wheel.
Finley to make the case for adjusting Old Age Security - The Globe and Mail

What caught my eye here was one of their big reasons for their concerns.

Quote:
In isolation, the rising cost of OAS is sustainable, he said, echoing the view of other experts, including economists and the Parliamentary Budget Officer. But Ottawa and other governments also face health-care costs that will rise even faster.
It was my understanding that Ottawa isn't ramping up health transfer monies. I thought this, was made very clear recently. What am I missing here, an upcoming plan to ramp up spending on health care? I thought the conservative government's position was not doing so. So how can this be a concern to them?

I also noticed this:
Quote:
The Conservatives ramped up their attacks on Mr. Page in response, but have not provided their own long-term estimates.
How can they ramp up attacks without providing estimates to back it up? I would have thought if they were so sure, they would have these prepared already for release.

The Canadian police chiefs are at it again. Last time they supported a useless long gun registry. This time around, they want to invade your online privacy:

I lost a float holiday over this silly February day. What I meant was that, McGuinty (the ministry of transport) is making the scalemasters work the MOT scales on a Holiday for Ontario Families. Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised if those boys were bringing in time and a half or even double bubble and it was offered as a perk.

...and yeah, trucked for 30years give it a year or two 16 of those with my own rig (Truck & Trailer). So, pretty much made my own hours on that gig, but unlike McGoofie at Queen's park, I never made a big political issue during the election about "Ontario Families".

Typical political lackeys, all they want is more bad laws so they can justify and beg for bigger budgets. That bunch makes me sick.

...The battle rages on. LOL

Last time I looked in here, none of us...and I mean none of us, has a halo.

I don't take sides here, I give my opinion and if I have to, I'll defend my position. If someone objects and wants a civil debate, I'll reciprocate...but if someone throws jabs and starts being stupid, I'll have no qualms about reciprocating in a similar manner or I'll shake my head and ignore the comment altogether. It all depends on my mood and how much effort I want to put into it. I think we're all a pretty good bunch, including all the leftards in here.

Well some think they do. But yeah no one does. If the trolling can be reduced that'll help. Perhaps some of the members who told me they don't participate here anymore would come back. I'm sorry to anyone offended for having the audacity to fire back this long. Perhaps as suggested, this is completely, and totally all my fault. How dare I. Trolls are to be defended!

Since we met personally, I do know you're not all bad.
