Mike Harris could well be an indicator of what beef does to a society even if some of the people in that society are vegans...this was your remark. If you like to discuss Ontario politics, perhaps a pseudo-intellect like yourself should start their own forum. The topic in this forum is simple enough; McDonalds. While I would love nothing more than to trade insults with you, I think you misunderstand. I have no personal love for Mike Harris, or Mel Lastman for that matter. I do, however, have a personal dislike for anyone who tries to blame society for their problems, because it takes away from personal accountability. If you think my religion is economics, that is your opinion, although I did not allude anything which would give evidence to support or deny your claim. I am in the economic-class of Ontarians which gets screwed over the most (lower-middle) and work 70-80 hours a week to make ends meet. I am also a realist. I realized long ago, that our government can no longer give away money like candy from its pocket, and we will have to pay for past-government's mistakes. Rather than whine about your current economic status, and blame the government for all that is wrong in your life; you should take charge, put down your squeegee, and join the real world. It is not pretty, but it is the only society we have, and until you can offer constructive-criticism, you should refrain from judging society to harshly, as it is capitolism, and communism hasn't worked yet.

P.S. Feel free to use this note as the opening statement in your Ontario Politics Forum.

P.S.S. Perhaps you were a bigger fan of Bill Davis, or Peterson??? I do not recall a premiere yet which has done this province proud, but I commend them all on dealing with the mess left to them by predecessors.
