There is an article in the news feeds today, a pet peeve from a reader of the Cornwall Seaway News, that is peed about cigarettes and garbage being thrown out of vehicle windows by drivers who don't seem to get what a hazard they cause.
Besides texting and garbage being thrown out of windows - what pet peeve do you have when it comes to the general motoring population?
Mine is those who don't observe or seem to know the rules of the road....
Then there is news out of Quebec today about corruption in the construction industry...hmm, bridges and other infrastructure crumbling and crashing and yet millions and millions spent every year... and the political parties are up to their necks in it apparently! SHOCKING, our governments conduct business that way, DO THEY? I wished you could hear my sarcasm...
My question in all of this - with the anti "gang" laws where in if three or more collude to commit a crime, will these politicians and bureaucrats get jail time or will this be another sponsorship scandal where no one really pays the price for the treason that is enacted?
Yah - I thought so...oh well I guess we can dream that one day politicians and bureaucrats will learn to treat our money - the taxes they collect as sacred and to be used wisely...
Like every day, I love it when you talk to me about the topics of the day!
