~ our local "city government" (I live in Kanata which is part of the Ottawa "amalgamated" city... (the capital city of Canada) and they (government) have just finished up a long, pathetic process of debating a new budget. Seems all the counsellors got themselves elected saying "no new taxes" and then found out the city budget was in the shitter... so they want a) raise taxes by 3 % or b) slash like mad at all the city supported services... I'm talking about 200 million worth of services.. It's such a big farking mess. Anyways... they settled on a 2.9% tax hike and cut a few mill in services. One of the items on their "Vote Agenda" was a proposal to cut city counsellor office budgets by 10%... this along with hacking big slashes to Police Services, Libraries, Fire Stations, etc. etc. etc... (and that's not even mentioning the impact of cuts on the local arts community). yeah, well they Voted DOWN the 10% cut for themselves and managed to raise my taxes and cut the hell out of the city services. fuckers...
~ I'm reading about "The Knights Templar"... a history of... on various dub-dub-dub locations... very interesting stuff.
~ A person speaks about their christian religion, and they talk about the involvement of their local church in the community, the sense of a social contact and mutual support, community spirit and a collective opinion on local current affairs. Another person launches directly into dire speech harkening back to the lords judgement and the word of God and the various rules, covenants and "right versus wrong" aspects of their faith and supports these words with talk of centuries old documentation and blind faith.
I can get behind the former... the latter? not so much.
~ my vcr and the tape of Alias that is in it... is calling to me...
