Complacent Craniums in Alberta

Oh that Rick Bell from the Calgary Sun ... he has such a way with words. But they ring true for the bulk of Albertans.

Rick's article blames Klein (and rightly) about the Tories lack of vision, planning and gov't philosophy and says today is the day you pay the piper.

True to Red Tory form, King Ralph believes a little shell game of words (which all invoke the same result - borrowing money) will be enough to keep the average Albertan from realizing that he is about to put us back in debt. And he would be right.

Rick laments to the average Albertan "And we complain people in the East are sheep". And he would be right again.

We can only prey that Morton takes the helm of the PCs..and the AA takes 15-20 rural seats...I think we will see 15 or so seats for the liberals from the metropolitan as the PCs delineate and purge the reds and retuurn to Blue Tory roots.

"The government actually seems to be buying the notion that borrowing for "capital" projects isn't debt in the same sense as debt rung up through budget deficits. "The whole idea is to borrow from ourselves," says Ralph - as if this explains why some debt isn't debt."
I am at a loss.Last year we were "debt free" and now he's going to borrow us into debt again?Oppppssss,sorry,it's not debt cause we is all burrin from ourselves,so cant be debt,yaknow.
Ummmm...if I take 50 bucks from myself and spend it,then hit up my buddy for 50 bucks because I need it for food,gas,whatever,isn't that a debt?
Ahhhhh..never mind.I'll just give myself a big raise and everything will be fine!!!(puke)
