Disgruntled voter finds little value in today’s politics

I am trying to get my mind set on writing about something positive in today’s world of politics

To the Editor:

I am trying to get my mind set on writing about something positive in today’s world of politics.

Unfortunately, I am having no success, as each day I read about the political negatives that creep out through the cracks in the floor.

My Christmas wish could be, that all we peons can learn  fiscal management on how to be as honest and  transparent as the big number two spender of all MLAs – MLA Bill Barisoff and his $46,410 expense account.

Great time to retire before the “S’ really hits the fan Billy Boy!

Strange as it may seem – all things do eventually come out in the wash so – it  seems.

There should be a probationary period of six months for all those elected to show their pre-election  platform colors in action.

Do what they tooted or get the agony and embarrassment of being booted.

Politicians hold the biggest bucket full of sleaze that has no equal with no end in sight to  tap off its overflow.

How do I find a hang – on – my – coat-tails management committee to support my bare ride- minus honour – regard for truth and honesty – yet alone – heaven forbid – transparency ?
