Crazy Judge

The world has gone mad. A Quebec judge stopped a father from discipling his daughter - he nixed a 3-day school trip. What kind of judge does that? She had posted photos on a dating site - she's 12 years old for god sake! I'd ground her much longer than 3 days. In fact, what kind of daughter takes her dad to court to get her way - and WINS! http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2008/06/19/father-court.html

New oil taxes - are you mad?

Dion figures he can win the next election by creating a new government tax while oil prices are rising every week - huh? We're already the most taxed people on earth. Revenue neutral, schnootral. A big new tax on propane, heating oil and diesel would increase the cost of everything you buy. And how exactly do I stop heating my home or else absorb double heating costs in two years? That is not enough time to adjust to both price increases AND taxes. Inflation for certain, but keep the SUV humming along. Boo to Dion.
