Please Stop Calling Dalton McGuinty A Liar!



Throughout this entire election I have heard countless political commentators, politicians, radio hosts, radio callers, family members, co-workers, employees, employers, customers, people in line for coffee, and pretty much every human being I have ever talked to, call Mr. Dalton McGuinty a liar.

I think this is horribly unfair! Dalton isn't a liar. No no no, that title certainly does not describe him....

Dalton McGuinty is a fraud. Let's get one thing straight, when a man rises to one of the most powerful positions in government, making decisions that have an effect of your health, wealth, and children's education, and you enter into an agreement with that man based on what he has sworn, by voting him into power, and he completely and unequivocally back tracks on what he has said he will do, or won't do - Then that man has committed an act of treason, a kind of the highest caliber.

The fact that we have come to expect (or perhaps ignore) the type of fraud is absolutely terrifying. The fact that the polls are predicting that this man will win over the majority of the voters, yet again, is staggering.

If Dalton McGuinty were a business owner who had entered into a contract with a customer, he would be sued.

If Dalton McGuinty were an employee, he would be fired.

If Dalton McGuinty was a person before a judge, he would be charged with perjury.

If Dalton McGuinty lived in the real world, with real consequences, and real expectations, he would be right at the bottom of the polls, and might get a vote or two from his Grandma, or wife. (Although, if Dalton McGuinty treats the trust of his marriage like he treats the trust of the electorate....)

And don't give me any of that nonsense about having the freedom to change your mind, or do what's best for the people. Listen Dalton, what's best for the people is doing what you said you would do. That's your job.

Maybe you aren't just a fraud however. Maybe you are a genius. Maybe you have tragically figured out that you can do whatever you would like, and get away with it. Am I the only one who feels like I'm living in the Twilight Zone? Is any of this making sense to you my humble readers?

I think maybe when it comes time to pay my taxes I might just lie about how much I make. Jail you say? Consequence you say? But, lying is now the Canadian way!

There are other options. Don't be fooled by the foxes who guilt you into thinking you only have two choices - losers and biggest loser. Take a stand. Vote for a party who actually cares about you, who want you to live a healthy life, and live it without the burden of bureaucracy or corporate and union influence. Ontario is one bad turn away from a train wreck. Do a quick history lesson, and you'll notice the past and present are full of Canadian fraudsters that go by the name of politicians.

It's time for something better.

Let's Talk

I went to go check out a childhood friends facebook page in the winter of 2010. I hadn't talked to him since I was a teenager. I soon found out that I would never talk to him again,

I did a quick google search and found out that he had been apart of an online gaming community. I tracked him down to some forums where I suddenly became away that something tragic had befallen him.

The last time I had talked to him was shortly after I moved back to southwestern Ontario. I don't remember much of the conversation, except that he told me he was feeling depressed. I was 13 at the time and depression was just a word that I thought meant "sad". We caught up, talked about the trivial things that 13 year old boys talk about, but something wasn't right. We never talked again. 
Now 15 years later I was reading these words about a person who was once a close friend of mine. "What a f***ing coward." or "I can't believe someone could be that selfish.". It …

How are you feeling?

Response 1:

"I'm not sleeping again. It turns out my body might be reacting to antidepressants. The annoying symptom? Night sweats. We thought it might be lymphoma. It wasn't. That was a fun couple of weeks. I'm terrified. I'm terrified that this won't be the end of it, that the next medicine will fail too, and those absolutely terrifying impulses to harm myself and the thoughts of failure that I tell myself I am over and over and over and over and over and over again will one day be too much. Will these thoughts that only seem to stop in short intervals darken into complete mental breakdown? My biggest fear isn't snakes or falling, it's that I will end up on the street and lose my intellect and sanity, being mocked by people who don't know what mental illness is like. I'm afraid that the loneliness I seem to NEVER break from free from will enslave me into a life of dependence on others. I was doing so well but maybe wellness is just an illusio…

Why Theology?

Very rarely in years past did theology put down deep roots in my life. I guess it is because of my natural inclination to question and deconstruct ideas, and my love of playing devil's advocate. This has often gotten me into trouble with my wife, as I'll often take a position in a discussion that I don't even remotely believe, and before I realise it, I am debating her on points that I myself agree with! Sometimes I don't realise I am doing it - debating has always been a bit of a thrill for me.

So why am I now trying to become a theologian?

Theology, I have come to believe, must eventually come to a head. What is it stake is my avenue of faith - how I see God, the Church, others and most importantly myself. What we are pursuing are the big answers that shape our inner thoughts and guide our actions. These aren't the rudiments of math; I cannot prove what is theologically true - but like all of life's important truths theology finds itself in subjective conclus…
