Praise continues to roll in for the Games

All things Olympic, be it the games themselves, economic impact, political comments, rants, raves . . . anything and everything Olympian goes here.

Twelve more years and I'm eligible to start collecting my government pension. I'll take my education, skills and experience and move out of province to do consultant work under contract to other governments (I did that before getting on with the BC Public Service and will be in an even better position then). I'll still visit BC but I will at least no longer have to pay for the mistakes this government has made through its arrogance (that payment to include exorbitant taxes to pay debt and rebuild dismantled but necessary public services) the rest of the people still here will be paying for the rest of their lives. Gordo, of course, will have long been on a beach, enjoying his martinis and laughing at the gullibility of this electorate and musing on how easy a scam this turned out to be for him. Maybe the “Liberal” Party will still be in power and the lapdogs still thinking that promised “new era of hope and prosperity” is just around the corner.

It was kinda of a natural progression. Praise for the games, partying in the streets and ultimately our own alcoholic premier – always one for a good time.

I think a premier that drinks and gets into trouble with the law (even in some far far away place) only appeals to the public. Hey, our premier is a party animal! May be that's why his rating went up when the events revolving around those pictures took place. To everyone's surprise.

Wow, what a poor sport. :127:

Here's some advice: Take your ball and go home if that's how you feel. :runforlife:
