WORTHY OF THEIR ANGER
Our leaders’ unpunished failures have led to furious voters
For Foreign Policy magazineDear K….
Actually, that is Germany post WW1, and this is the same response to a conman that the Germans gave to Hitler..and yes, i a, terrified..but Klaas I am a Bernie fan all the way, and if this sort of seemingly mindless anger is what is necessary to clean house..well, so be it..the only way people seemingly learn is the hard way, and though all these writers trash this and that elite, who allowed them to get into power, and maintain it all these years? The people, who treat participatory democracy like a joke, most of those angry ones probably never bother to vote or even do a little reading/research to find out what is really going on…Don’t want to make you feel bad, but a real microcosm of this attitude is a union..how many meetings did anyone actually attend? In the twenty years i was with the City I tried to attend as many as i could, I participated and got frustrated because the powers that were entrenched in that Union office knew what Trump and the others knew..that people are lazy, don’t want to be bothered and they would do whatever the Union told them was for ‘their won good..” When I tried to fight that I succeeded, but then, apathy set in again and people quit caring, and quit coming to meetings, etc…and so it goes… The same thing happens here (and in the US and Britain)..sure everyone got all antsy and decided they’d had enough of Harper, but who died they vote for? And how is Trudeau any different? He isn’t…and so it goes…it’s gonna have to get a lot worse here before it gets better….and Canadians haven’t even gotten angry yet..I have no idea what that is going to look like… W

It’s about time, by any standards of political heel-dragging, that the Harper appointees go gently into that good night, but look out, BC, Gordo “three martini” Campbell will be back in town, very shortly..you remember, the guy with the 9% approval rating, the guy who created the reno-viction plague, the guy who made ‘leaky condos’ a phrase for the ages in BC, the guy who dismantled the trades apprenticeship program and made elevator inspectors, hairdressers and others mere wage slaves with no training necessary…that guy, the one who got arrested for driving drunk in Hawaii while still Premiere of this province..who wept like a Southern televangelist on TV begging for forgiveness for his sins, but who refused to do the honorable thing and quit..you know, the abject liar who swore he wouldn’t implement the HST, pre-election, and did just that anyway…his reward from his overlord Harper? Why, a plummy job in the UK as a ‘commissioner’ at Canada House..whatever it is that the position entails, I would bet it pays well…I could go on and on, but, you get the drift…
Yep, that guy..and now he’ll be back, and we have to wonder how Christy Clark is gonna feel about that…she’s sunk almost as low in the polls, and his imminent return will make it so easy to do a comparison between them.., and I thought the RNC was the only excuse I had for popcorn….
