The gods of liberty are conferring in the heavens as we speak. If you listen carefully, you can hear them – voices of reason wafting over a humanity for whom reason has all but been drowned out by the cries of millions of chattering class believers in their own claims for entitlement  (“Entites” ) at the expense of  our nation’s prosperity producers (“Prospertites”).

If you are like me, an Ontario citizen who believes that:  your taxes are too high and mis-used; government regulations are too many and mostly designed to increase government power; and that the Ontario Public Service is too big and wields too much monopoly power in their compensation demands —— if this describes your convictions about governments in general, then you have been silent for too long.

 My wife and I have a wonderful weekend routine.  I make a "red eye" coffee for each of us on our Gaggia espresso machine, then we settle on the couch with our 2 cats in attendance and chat about all sorts of things, including politics.

 Yesterday, Cynthia and I were discussing how to reach and encourage entrepreneurs to create new and profitable business models that could address our GTA commuting and transportation problems. That's when she came up with a brilliant idea!

Is a 30% Markup on government services too much?

When you stop to analyze the fundamental role of government in modern society, it can be described in very simple terms:  to take money from productive citizens ( taxes in their many forms) and to distribute these revenues to groups of politically designated recipients.

In the world of business, we have a name for the middle man who facilitates the exchange of financial or service transactions between parties:  a  'broker' .  I know this role very well. It is the way that I have earned my living for nearly all of my career.

Personal Freedom is a personal choice decided by each individual person. You choose how much personal freedom you give yourself. When you make your own desicions under your own free will, you have personal freedom. To quote a song "If you decide not to choose, you have still made a choice". You are your own decision maker.

My letter to the Society for Quality Education

I recently received a fundraising letter from the Society for Quality Education (SQE). They do a lot of good stuff in an attempt to improve the school system. They produced a documentary available on DVD, Charter Schools: Alberta’s Best-Kept Secret, which I highly recommend as an example of what can happen when schools are allowed to compete. They are often critical of the methods used by the public schools to teach our children, which is why I support them.

Is Dalton McGuinty hooked on OPM?

Have you ever wondered why Dalton McGuinty was unable to keep his promise 8 years ago to not increase taxes?  My theory is that he is hooked on OPM!    ;-)

 

For politicians like Mr. McGuinty, the temptation must be overwhelming to project himself as the 'Iron Man' of  political heros by throwing OPM (other people's money) at every problem and hope that the problem will go away as if by magic. This seems to work in comic books but not so well in reality.

 

Health Care Waiting Lists_ a new approach

We read and hear about it all the time —  patients with medical conditions, serious or otherwise, that find themselves waiting weeks and sometimes months for a visit with the appropriate medical professional.

Our usual response is generally apathy because we have become immune to the constant media barrage of bad news …. until the day that a medical crisis hits us, or someone close to us!
