something new from Liberals ?…

No…

Actually, as it happens, they put in place a fairly old political joke…from Soviet Union. More exactly  the three letters tale…

<Moscow, 1953. Stalin calls in Khrushchev.

“Niki, I’m dying. Don’t have much to leave you. Just three envelopes. Open them, one at a time, when you get into big trouble.”

A few years later, first crisis. Khrushchev opens envelope 1: “Blame everything on me. Uncle Joe.”

A few years later, a really big crisis. Opens envelope 2: “Blame everything on me. Again. Good luck, Uncle Joe.”

Third crisis. Opens envelope 3: “Prepare three envelopes.”>

After recently passing the 10,000 follower milestone and getting featured on Tumblr’s radar for the 10th time, I really wanted to make a thank you drawing for the Tumblr staff. A while ago, I made this, so i wanted to make an updated version of that. Thank you for the kindness and support.

You may think of Tumblr staff as an armless, many-faced cutie-pie. 
Thanks, Classy!

digital age challenges…

one of it seems to be the time spent in front of a device by the children…

one solution may be if the said device would offer the possibility to set up a certain amount amount of time, after which the user will be locked out…

of course with warnings and options to save…

ontario pension plan

http://www.ottawasun.com/2014/05/22/former-pm-martin-rips-hudaks-proposed-public-service-cuts

first off ontario pension plan translate in a tax, payroll tax…http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/05/01/ontario-budget-reveals-plan-for-first-of-its-kind-provincial-pension-that-could-be-integrated-into-cpp/

and second is the big problem of having the liberal near money; which by looking back to history to understand the consequences that means that the money will be spend, not wisely…and will follow another tax or more borrowing to cover the spending…

with the borrowings the problem is Ontario credit rating has already been downgraded http://www.thespec.com/news-story/2241349-moody-s-downgrades-ontario-s-credit-rating/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_government_debt and there are talks will be downgraded  again (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2011/12/15/ontario-credit-downgrade-moodys_n_1152375.html), which means higher cost of borrowing given the higher risk…

adding the fact the interest rates are at low level now and don’t know what will happen when they will be increased, sorry another tax I guess…

summing up, looks like having another Lib gov in Ontario is the surest thing to financial ruin…
