You all should be ashamed of yourselves. Yes, you complaining of being disturbed by an Amber Alert in the night. Not only that but tying up the 911 system with your trivial self-entitlement. You should all be charged with misuse of emergency services, in my opinion. Did you wake up in the morning and carry on with life? Yup. One little girl will never get that chance. I hope none of you are ever in the same situation as this mother was, but if you are, my phone will alert me and if I can help in any way, I will.
(Pure ignorance, but that really goes without saying.)
There’s a lot of talk about photo radar being a cash cow. I have to agree. How is sitting behind a wall, completely hidden, making our roads safer?
(Cities are just out to make a quick buck on this.)
NOT FAR ENOUGH
Mason calling photo radar a cash cow and then flipping it over to the municipalities to prove it is not is just another pre-election ploy by the NDP. Numbers can be manipulated and, to me, it is like sending the fox into the henhouse to count the chickens. Absurd.
(Here’s hoping they get their hands slapped.)
Peter Tork was a gifted musician. Along with Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, and Michael Nesmith, he was a founding member of the pop group formed for The Monkees TV sitcom that aired from 1966 to 1968. The Monkees were one of the highest-charting acts of the 1960s. Their hits included Last Train to Clarksville, I’m a Believer, and Daydream Believer. We will remember Peter Tork always and forever.
(We were believers.)
DONE WITH DIPPERS
Even though nothing official has been announced, I have just been contacted by a representative for the New Democratic Party requesting my support in the upcoming election. I have no idea how much money the party is wasting on these surveys, but I am sure they are having little effect on the overall attitude of Alberta voters. We put up with the “kid in a candy store” playacting of the NDP when they first came into office, with the hope that they would eventually grow up and start governing. It obviously has not happened, and it looks like they are finally starting to recognize that their time in the candy store is about to be terminated. The frustrating thing for me (and I suspect, many other Albertans) is that we will have to pay for their excesses, and our children will get stuck with what we can’t cover. Hopefully, Mr. Kenney will be able to mitigate some of the damage they have done. However, one lesson that I will carry to my grave is “Don’t Trust a Politician’s Promises”.
(A good lesson to remember.)
