So another baseball season has come to an end for our family. I am happy to say the girl's team won the Provincial AA Mosquito banner this year. Now I may actually have time for a life and blogging. While I was frantically trying to catch up on all my neglected blog reading, I came across http://myventspace.blogspot.com/2008/07/people-to-flog.htmlthis gem It makes my blood boil to think that these people are free to spew their hatred and ignorance. Worse yet, they are allowed to procreate. Heaven help us all. I appologize. I can't get hyperlink to work, so if you want to read this post, you are going to have to do some work.

There has been some talk lately of Mr. Dion and his carbon tax. I just had to put my two cents in. Mr. Dion, I don't care what you claim about your idea. You can dress it in a tutu and have it dance through the halls of Parliment. You can call it "revenue neutral" all you want. The rest of us know the truth. It comes from the Liberals and it has TAX in the name. It means we are going to get screwed. I am all for saving the planet. I just don't like doing it on the backs of the working poor. Face it, most of the working poor are already doing their part to save the planet. They take public transportation because they can't afford a car. They are not using their carbon credits to gas up their SUV to travel up to the cabin to enjoy nature. They can't afford a cabin or an SUV. The only wildlife they get to see is at the zoo. (That they took the bus to). They don't have big houses to heat and cool. They live in energy efficient housing (apartments). They buy their clothing at second hand stores. They can't afford designer clothing. I can't figure out too many more ways the working poor can reduce so the wealthier population can purchase the credits they need to sustain their lifestyle. The biggest reason I can't support the carbon tax? I have a hard time, a REALLY hard time taking anything serious that comes from someone who reminds me so much of Kermit the Frog. Sorry Mr. Dion, it ain't easy being green.
