Politics is Getting in the Way

I've got a couple of blog posts under construction but have been involved in municipal politics recently. Sadly, the Tea Party has arrived in Canada and its name is the Ford Brothers.

I was at City Hall making a deputation at 1 a.m. on Friday morning. I had my 20 tweets of fame on Twitter, but now the world has moved on.

I leave you with my favourite quote of all times:

"Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society."
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, 1902-1932

I'll get back to my usual blogging sooner than later.


  1. *sigh*

    Things have not been looking or sounding very civilized here in the U.S. for quite some time. I'm still holding out hope for Canada. We need more like you, NewMe!

  2. You go, Girl! Don't let your country go the way of ours. Your Ford Brothers and our Kochs. As Bugs Bunny would say, "What maroons!"
