Wisconsin anti-union law ruled illegal

From the Progressive:
Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi today ruled that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s controversial anti-union law was illegal. “It is necessary to void the legislative actions flowing from these violations,” she ruled. The law, she ruled, “has no force or effect.” Republicans vowed to appeal the decision to the state supreme court.
Well how's that for something positive.

hi Willy...that is indeed the best news I've read in a long time. I'm always looking for good news too...you know like the guy looking for that pony. But I have to admit that these days either that pony is really small or there is just too much manure... :)

Ah, the curse of the diarrheic shetland ponies or something like that.

The futility of four or five more years of ranting against the Harper government, in the small echo chamber that we rant in, seems overbearing at times.

Hence maybe why we are circling our wagons and bickering amongst ourselves. Maybe nobody else is listening.

The simplest option might be to just go and get on with your life. Ignore the BS and Join the 40% of the country that doesn't bother to vote or the other 40% who believe the butterfly & puppy dogs tales they hear on CTV.

Or as you have often suggested hone the skills required by this frustrating pastime and Rant against the Machine.

Isn't that a band?

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
