Going down singing

This post contains an absolutely marvelous song, the post providing the essential background. Do click through, watch, listen, and think: the last graph is particularly impressive. In a sense.

  1. I might add that the graph showing almost 90% of people unwilling to pay extra taxes or tolls for road repairs is simply the mistrust that any of these extra funds would actually go to road repairs! They would most likely disappear into the provincial government’s massive overdraft, to fund such useless stuff as the French language watchdog that ensures English signs are either forbidden or the text must be only 40% of the French text in size.

    You must remember that Quebecers are the highest taxed populace in North America!

  2. Sounds like an election opportunity for the Sensible Party, if such exists. Vote the scalawags out, the reformers in, and change the laws wholesale. Wonder why that is *so* rare—but it does happen from time to time.

  3. Isn’t the expression “Sensible Party” an oxymoron? Does such a thing exist anywhere? I’m following the GOP fiasco and they sure don’t fit the bill!. :-)
