    you must be a desperate woman or crazy to (1) work at EH, (2) to work under ross Wiseman, (3) to work under Danny Williams. I hope that big whjite elephant was enough to make you happy. Becasue you have the worst job in the province. I'd rahter be employed cleaning the brass pole at the COtton Club than run Eastern Health. EH will never have my confidence. NEVER. I'm glad my mother to see the BS.

    Wow, the haters are obviously so far beyond hope, I actually pity them, LOL. Show me the destruction, discount the major resource, infrastructure, and worker aid that's been payed out. Teacher's pension liability, the historic deal with the nurses, yes, historic.....the hebron deal, our new R&D corporation, what about Nalcor........c'mon, who's gonna be first to take weak punch, lol. I'll throw in some new schools, aid for workers screwed over for their company, hey!....resource expropriation from a company that would have otherwise sold it! My list can be larger, but I'll let the haters address those accomplishments.

    I'm not the one who's judgment is clouded. Beyond hurling insults and rhetoric, there is zero to back up what any hater can say. Calling me a worshiper even furthers your own, already misinformed opinion of the positive changes that are happening in your own province. No sane individual will honestly tell you that Williams is responsible for it all either, just like he's not responsible for every mess that occurs in every department. I remind you that health care is getting the most attention it ever has in our provinces history and it will emerge stronger and much more efficient.........and anyone above the age of 30 has seen enough headlines about health care over the years to know full well, it's not Williams' fault.......and this includes Graham - what challenge was that, by the way?. The cleaning needs to start at Easter Health, period.

    Do you have a list of destruction you'd like to post Shannon, a list Williams is responsible for?

    Reardon.

    For F#@5 sakes, get your head out of your ar$e.

    Only fools (or opposition, same thing) like you can shoot your mouth off and try to blame the current Premier of only 6 years for something that has been festering for far longer than that.

    The errors by EH have nothing to do with government, not even Wiseman. From the sounds of it, these errors, be it incorrect reporting, wrong data collection, or whatever it is, occured at the lower levels of EH. Not by the decision makers in EH, let alone the government.

    Did Danny rub you the wrong way? Perhaps you're in bed with overlord Harper, and he's commanding you to try to blame the Premier. Or you're part of team Lorraine or team Yvonne, or something like that. It can only explain the moronic remarks you've been making, trying desperately to blame the wrong people.

    Too busy signing oil deals? Good one. Now you're trying to blame this mishap on the best success this province has enjoyed in a long time.

    No wonder NL'ers are plagued with the incorrect stereotype of being less intelligent. Holy $h!t.

    Talk about stereo types well Bayman and Bones are perfect examples of that. They refuse to see or handle the truth about anything Williams is involved in. By the way Bones did you choose to ignore the challenge Someone issued to you a few days ago, or will you pretend that never happened either. Remember they asked you to prove them wrong. Well wheres your proof Bones. You talk a good talk about cheap insurance no tax when you renewed. You blame the liberals for the mess in health care and for that you are correct. Tell us Bones howhas Danny improved health care. Is it the Liberals fault that people lied while Williams and Wiseman lied? I bet you think it is. Now back to the Bayman fool I was going to make a comment there too but you sir are not worth the effort other than to saay its people like you who give the good bay people a bad name. Thank God the rest of them are a little farther up in the gene pool than you are..You and your cosin Bones never cease to amaze me.

    Well Bones as far as a list of distruction as you put it. Lets start with your little pea brain. Good King Danny appears to have destroyed what little brain cells you may have once had. If bull sh i t were brains you would be a genius Bones. If brains were dynamite you wouldnt have enough to blow your nose. Looks like ole Graham was right Bones you choose to ignor challenges when your asked to prove something. Funny the rest of us can see them but you cant. Just go back and re read past comments for the last few days Bones. Im sure you read them 20 times a day anyhow. There you will find the challenge. Cant remember the exact wording but it had some interesting comments about your master Danny and aked you to prove them wrong. Check it out Bones. It was about 5 of dannys buddies who got over 3 million in un tendered contracts. the guy got the information under the freedom of information act and asked you to check it out and prove him wrong. We would all like to see that Bones..Then again thats something you probably dont want to know and you will say whatever he did was all the fault of Tobin or Grimes. Do some research Bones before you spew out your garbage and endless admiration for the little man Dan.

Your adoration for Danny Williams has to be some kind of incurable ailment but with technology as it is today there must be something out there to help bring you back to reality. Then again reality is only presnt where the recipient is a willing participant in that whole process. Its obvious that for whatever reason reality has passed you by.. You do make many great comments and great points on here I will give you that. But your obcession with Danny Williams actually scares me. If Danny came out tomorrow and said thats it I have had enough of this I am quitting and jumping off a bridge. You sir would jump with him.

    Whatever you say, Lorraine, or I mean Yvonne, or I mean Steve, or......

    That's right, blame the current government. Its easy for low-lifes like S. Reardon. Sitting behind their computer (which I know, I am doing at this very moment), and whining and bawling at the government because they're the easiest to target.

    Not that it matters, because who really cares what S. Reardon thinks? The problem is that the ignorance and contempt for government (regardless of who it is) that he/she displays it too common. The whole OMG THE GOVERNMENT IS TOTALLY $@REWING US OVER ITS ALL THEIR FAULT attitude is so cliche, pointless and old.

    But really though, get a life. If you're really that convinced that our Premier is NOT the right person for the job, instead of whining like a baby, why not try to run yourself?

    Tobin quit, Roger Dodger wasn't up to it. Danny is there actually making things happen, and its still not good enough for the chronic complainers like S. Reardon. Lorraine and Yvonne couldn't come close in the last election, so why not step up from the Telegram forums, and give it a shot! The poor ol' opposition could probably use your type of degrading banter.

    Then again, they probably already are. Which is why they are just the opposition.

    Have a look at the Sudbury Star, or speak to anybody living in Sudbury; learn just how much the departed bean-counting administrator was liked there. The admiration was far from universal.
    Bean-counters balance budgets, with little regard for any cost but monetary. Look at the reduction in NL hospital beds and services in 5 years, when her contract is up, and tell me I am wrong.

    Mainlander is right - this started long before Danny Williams or Ross Wiseman - unfortunately they are the ones who are in position to clean up the mess.
    Everyone loves to blame Danny and Ross for everything (as if that was the answer to anything!!!) LOL!

    Look back to the what the Liberals are responsible for creating - and let it be a lesson for the future in who you vote for.

    And Bayman (aptly named), your counter attack is too foolish to even deconstruct. Who is ultimately responsible for the government, which health care falls under, eh Bayman?? Who's the ar$e now??

    Clearly, there needs to be a top down approach to ameliorating health care. And the continued demonizing and finger pointing is not solving these dire issues, but is making things WORSE. Only an unintelligent person, or a blindly worshipping Danny disciple (same thing), would argue otherwise, or that it isn't, ultimately, the responsibility of the Premier of the day (DANNY WILLIAMS). Yes, folks, believe it.

    What rubs me wrong is ignorance like yours. What rubs me wrong is people, as a collective, accepting this crap treatment we get from this government. People think this man has the Midas touch for everything, and because he plays on our sense of nationalism, you stund articles lap it up and see the man as infallible, a deity. Danny's got you wrapped around his finger, He, the Saviour of Newfoundland! Get a brain, and grow a set.

    For you to claim that the government of the day is not culpable here adds to that very problem. And I hope that most Newfoundlanders aren't as stund as you are. And I hope you don't get sick anytime soon.

    Danny Williams has had 6 YEARS to deal with health care, and over 4 to deal with this particular issue. But instead of taking responsibility, he (and his sheep, like yourself) shift the blame on past administrations. So arrogant. So typical.

    Continue to kiss that ring... and health care continues to suffer...

    Just wondering if Shannon and all the other Danny bashers can offer some suggestions of what he should be doing instead of screaming he has done nothing. I have not heard anyone say what they should do to clean up the mess - all I have heard is they haven't done anything. The healthcare situation has always been horrible in Newfoundland. How do you fix it?

  • Shannon
    July 02, 2010 - 13:21

    Hey, mainlander and starr, who's in control of everything now and has the power to effect the necessary changes TODAY? Who's accountable TODAY? Not the Liberals. They were soundly turfed out 6 years ago, and in the past 6 years our health care system in general is the worst it has ever been. Danny Williams has been too busy with oil, and with his ego and personality wars with Steve , et al., to do anything to ameliorate the system, and make the necessary changes, beginning with canning that incompetent fool, Wiseman. That is the LEAST He could do.

    I guess, by your logic, Brian Tobin should have come back last summer and took his rightful glory for Hebron. After all, that dates back to 1998 or so, under his watch. That's a Liberal success, then.

    Please. And why hasn't the mess been cleaned up, starr? If anything, Williams and Co. have added to it, have made things FAR worse. Our health care system rivals that of the third world. Something for a have province, wha??? I guess rolling up expensive shirt sleeves and doing the hard work isn't as easy or glamorous as inking big oil deals and gallivantin' around like a Messiah.

    Get out of the past and into the present and future. And stop pathetically blaming past governments for a mess Williams has not only avoided clean up of, but has made far worse with his ignorance, arrogance, and ego-driven personality wars with everyone from Debbie Forward to the brass at EH to the Prime Minister, whoever he is at the time.

    After all, anything bad that happens in Dannyland is everyone else's fault, not His!!

    So when will the people of this province stand up and demand that every last one of these boobs from Danny Williams on down be turfed?

    After a few more hundred die?

    Too much government intervention is the cause for all this. Government needs to stay out of peoples lives once and for all. They have shown that they have no class, nor the brains to get the job done properly.

    What a freakin joke we are faced with, and keep bending over to take everyday in this province. The Health Care System is all about MONEY. Wonder when the drug stores will start to chage a dispensing fee for over the counter meds that the Rx board feels they have a right to control?

    Only freakin province in Canada where these games are played. Stupid is stupid does.

    Danny William's is a politician not a doctor. It is the responsible of the people at the hospitals to correctly read the results of all these tests. Danny or any other politician, whether Liberal, PC , NDP or whatever cannot be expected to sit a the hospitals all day long and babysit those people responsible for doing these tests. There are many businesses out there that are short staffed like the Health Care System but would fired an employyee for a lot less than causing the loss of someone's life.

    Shame on these workers.

    Shannon dont you realise it yet this is the only life Bones has. Sad as it is its the best he can do. Just thank God Shannon that more and more of us are seeing Danny Boy for the ego maniac he really is. Also thank God that many of us also are not afflicted with the strange disease Bones appears to have. Even with the long waiting lists at all our hospitals a quick 10 minute surgery will help Bones. That surgery involves removing hos nose from Danny Williams arse. Then again that would also be a waist of tax payers money because before he left the front entrance at the HSC Bones would have his nose firmly implanted up there again anyway. What Bones dosent seem to be able to comprehend is the fact that we all know many of the problems we face especially in health care were brought on by previous governments Liberal and Conservative. What Bones seems to have a problem with is the fact that since Danny was elected nothing has changed if anything its much worse. He challenges people to show him the proof yet he constantly fails to prove otherwise himself when confronted with the facts about Williams. In typical cult fashion Bones comes back with its all someone elses fault. READ THIS BONES. WE AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THAT. Now tell us how it has changed for the better under the Williams Government.

    I have been following the Telegram on line now for a few months and today I decided it would be silent no more. What in the name of God is up with this moron Danny Williams arse licker Bones. This guy raves on about how friggin perfect everything is back home since Danny Williams became premier. Well Bones my son lets talk about all that. My sister in law works for a financial institution in NL and during the past 6 years the number of people going dankrupt has more than doubled. The number of business going under has increased almot 68%. The north east Avalon the only friggin area Danny Williams cares about things are booming, therefore according to him we were a have province for about 48 hors until the arse went out of the price of a barrell of oil. Rural NL is in ruins because nothing has been done for years especially this past 6 or 7 years. As long as the Avalon and St johns in particular is doing good Danny thinks the rest of the province is doing good. Dont get me wrong I am pleased that this is happening in St Johns and Clarenville and places like that but thres a one hell of a lot more to the province that that. This Bones person is like the old saying he cant see the friggin forest for the trees. He comes here mostly for no other reason than to nit pick and condem anyone who has the balls to question anything Danny Williams does. His standard argument is never much more than look how bad it was with the Liberals. Well ok it was bad with the liberals too so does that make it friggin well ok that Williams is doing F all for rural NL? Ok Bones your insurance is cheaper, big friggin deal. the god dam health care system back home is the worst in the country and it has gotten worse since Williams took over and now with Wiseman in charge it really went down hill fast. The lies and cover ups never friggin well end with this bunch. I have come to the opinion that Bones is dis illusioned with his pal Danny just like the reast of us but he wont admit it so he figures if he comes here often enough with his Danny worship crap he will convince us that Dans the man and all is grand in Newfoundland. Lately though I am not sure if hes tryin to convince us or himself. I think now poor old Bones even believes his own mindless garbage. In the real world Bones things are just a little bit different that you have yourself convinced they are. In yours and Dannys world Bones things are perfect. The world I live in Bones is a bit different. The sun still comes up in the morning and it still sets at night but the way you talk Bones you think the friggin sun shines out of Danny Williams arse. This Graham guy and Shannon and a few others know exactly how to push your buttons Bones and when they do you open your mouth and out flows the endless crap as usual. Look how good it is look how good Danny is all the rest were fools Danny is the saviour all hail my man Dan. Bones bye get a friggin life. Or is this little game you play on the computer every day the only bit of enjoyment you get. you can dish it out Bones gotta give ya credit for that but you cant take it you always go on the friggin defensive with the mindless agrument show me the proof, show me the damage, show me the evidence. Well if you open your friggin eyes Bones the proof is all around ya and when someone points it out to you you cant even see it. Its more like you refuse to see it. What kind of magic mushroom spell do Danny have over ya there Bones that you can see no evil hear no evil and see and hear nothing that in any way might bust your Danny bubble. it aint to late Bones to take the advise of many people on here and do what their tellin ya. Get a friggin life.

    Maybe what we need to do is get rid of the unqualified duds in the heathcare system. That means cleaning house of people who are not qualified, who are lazy, who are hiding behind a union and are just there for the paycheque. The majority of the people in the system are hard working, compassionate people. But there are some bad apples and it is time to get rid of them. It is also time to stop the nepotism and hiring people based on who they know or whose district they live in. Like it or not, this has caused a lot of problems in the system and the whole it's who you know mentality to finding jobs has got to stop. Maybe if they started hiring qualified, hard working people, they might be able to start cleaning up the mess there. And this goes for government, private business and everywhere - start hiring qualified people instead of doing people favours to hire their friends and family. Things might run a lot better.

    Give the good Bay people a bad name? C'mon now Graham you don't see me taking a shot at townies. Perhaps you've been listening to too much K-rock, or whatever radio station they have the Baymen vs. Townies on.

    Refuse to see or handle the truth about anything the Williams is involved in? What then? What has he done wrong now? Did he f#@% up the tests and reporting from EH?

    Yep, Graham is yet another drag on society who will do nothing but gripe and complain about the government, no matter who they are. Because some how, the government has wronged him. Perhaps they denied you your usual EI check because you didn't get enough hours last year?

    Really though b'ys, from the way you moan a cry you'd think you had something to grumble about. This its all the governments fault is lame.

    Again, I can only assume that this must be coming from opposition. I would hope that, for Graham's and Reardon's sake, the only reason they're throwing around these petty complaints and insults is because they work for the opposition. If not, you seriously need help. Either that, or just plain get a life.

Lorraine and Yvonne couldn't come close in the last election, so why not step up from the Telegram forums, and give it a shot! The poor ol' opposition could probably use your type of degrading banter.

    Then again, they probably already are. Which is why they are just the opposition.

    Have a look at the Sudbury Star, or speak to anybody living in Sudbury; learn just how much the departed bean-counting administrator was liked there. The admiration was far from universal.
    Bean-counters balance budgets, with little regard for any cost but monetary. Look at the reduction in NL hospital beds and services in 5 years, when her contract is up, and tell me I am wrong.

    Mainlander is right - this started long before Danny Williams or Ross Wiseman - unfortunately they are the ones who are in position to clean up the mess.
    Everyone loves to blame Danny and Ross for everything (as if that was the answer to anything!!!) LOL!

    Look back to the what the Liberals are responsible for creating - and let it be a lesson for the future in who you vote for.

    And Bayman (aptly named), your counter attack is too foolish to even deconstruct. Who is ultimately responsible for the government, which health care falls under, eh Bayman?? Who's the ar$e now??

    Clearly, there needs to be a top down approach to ameliorating health care. And the continued demonizing and finger pointing is not solving these dire issues, but is making things WORSE. Only an unintelligent person, or a blindly worshipping Danny disciple (same thing), would argue otherwise, or that it isn't, ultimately, the responsibility of the Premier of the day (DANNY WILLIAMS). Yes, folks, believe it.

    What rubs me wrong is ignorance like yours. What rubs me wrong is people, as a collective, accepting this crap treatment we get from this government. People think this man has the Midas touch for everything, and because he plays on our sense of nationalism, you stund articles lap it up and see the man as infallible, a deity. Danny's got you wrapped around his finger, He, the Saviour of Newfoundland! Get a brain, and grow a set.

    For you to claim that the government of the day is not culpable here adds to that very problem. And I hope that most Newfoundlanders aren't as stund as you are. And I hope you don't get sick anytime soon.

    Danny Williams has had 6 YEARS to deal with health care, and over 4 to deal with this particular issue. But instead of taking responsibility, he (and his sheep, like yourself) shift the blame on past administrations. So arrogant. So typical.

    Continue to kiss that ring... and health care continues to suffer...

    Just wondering if Shannon and all the other Danny bashers can offer some suggestions of what he should be doing instead of screaming he has done nothing. I have not heard anyone say what they should do to clean up the mess - all I have heard is they haven't done anything. The healthcare situation has always been horrible in Newfoundland. How do you fix it?

    July 01, 2010 - 20:04

    Hey, mainlander and starr, who's in control of everything now and has the power to effect the necessary changes TODAY? Who's accountable TODAY? Not the Liberals. They were soundly turfed out 6 years ago, and in the past 6 years our health care system in general is the worst it has ever been. Danny Williams has been too busy with oil, and with his ego and personality wars with Steve , et al., to do anything to ameliorate the system, and make the necessary changes, beginning with canning that incompetent fool, Wiseman. That is the LEAST He could do.

    I guess, by your logic, Brian Tobin should have come back last summer and took his rightful glory for Hebron. After all, that dates back to 1998 or so, under his watch. That's a Liberal success, then.

    Please. And why hasn't the mess been cleaned up, starr? If anything, Williams and Co. have added to it, have made things FAR worse. Our health care system rivals that of the third world. Something for a have province, wha??? I guess rolling up expensive shirt sleeves and doing the hard work isn't as easy or glamorous as inking big oil deals and gallivantin' around like a Messiah.

    Get out of the past and into the present and future. And stop pathetically blaming past governments for a mess Williams has not only avoided clean up of, but has made far worse with his ignorance, arrogance, and ego-driven personality wars with everyone from Debbie Forward to the brass at EH to the Prime Minister, whoever he is at the time.

    After all, anything bad that happens in Dannyland is everyone else's fault, not His!!

    So when will the people of this province stand up and demand that every last one of these boobs from Danny Williams on down be turfed?

    After a few more hundred die?

    Too much government intervention is the cause for all this. Government needs to stay out of peoples lives once and for all. They have shown that they have no class, nor the brains to get the job done properly.

    What a freakin joke we are faced with, and keep bending over to take everyday in this province. The Health Care System is all about MONEY. Wonder when the drug stores will start to chage a dispensing fee for over the counter meds that the Rx board feels they have a right to control?

    Only freakin province in Canada where these games are played. Stupid is stupid does.

    Danny William's is a politician not a doctor. It is the responsible of the people at the hospitals to correctly read the results of all these tests. Danny or any other politician, whether Liberal, PC , NDP or whatever cannot be expected to sit a the hospitals all day long and babysit those people responsible for doing these tests. There are many businesses out there that are short staffed like the Health Care System but would fired an employyee for a lot less than causing the loss of someone's life.

    Shame on these workers.

    Shannon dont you realise it yet this is the only life Bones has. Sad as it is its the best he can do. Just thank God Shannon that more and more of us are seeing Danny Boy for the ego maniac he really is. Also thank God that many of us also are not afflicted with the strange disease Bones appears to have. Even with the long waiting lists at all our hospitals a quick 10 minute surgery will help Bones. That surgery involves removing hos nose from Danny Williams arse. Then again that would also be a waist of tax payers money because before he left the front entrance at the HSC Bones would have his nose firmly implanted up there again anyway. What Bones dosent seem to be able to comprehend is the fact that we all know many of the problems we face especially in health care were brought on by previous governments Liberal and Conservative. What Bones seems to have a problem with is the fact that since Danny was elected nothing has changed if anything its much worse. He challenges people to show him the proof yet he constantly fails to prove otherwise himself when confronted with the facts about Williams. In typical cult fashion Bones comes back with its all someone elses fault. READ THIS BONES. WE AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THAT. Now tell us how it has changed for the better under the Williams Government.

    I have been following the Telegram on line now for a few months and today I decided it would be silent no more. What in the name of God is up with this moron Danny Williams arse licker Bones. This guy raves on about how friggin perfect everything is back home since Danny Williams became premier. Well Bones my son lets talk about all that. My sister in law works for a financial institution in NL and during the past 6 years the number of people going dankrupt has more than doubled. The number of business going under has increased almot 68%. The north east Avalon the only friggin area Danny Williams cares about things are booming, therefore according to him we were a have province for about 48 hors until the arse went out of the price of a barrell of oil. Rural NL is in ruins because nothing has been done for years especially this past 6 or 7 years. As long as the Avalon and St johns in particular is doing good Danny thinks the rest of the province is doing good. Dont get me wrong I am pleased that this is happening in St Johns and Clarenville and places like that but thres a one hell of a lot more to the province that that. This Bones person is like the old saying he cant see the friggin forest for the trees. He comes here mostly for no other reason than to nit pick and condem anyone who has the balls to question anything Danny Williams does. His standard argument is never much more than look how bad it was with the Liberals. Well ok it was bad with the liberals too so does that make it friggin well ok that Williams is doing F all for rural NL? Ok Bones your insurance is cheaper, big friggin deal. the god dam health care system back home is the worst in the country and it has gotten worse since Williams took over and now with Wiseman in charge it really went down hill fast. The lies and cover ups never friggin well end with this bunch. I have come to the opinion that Bones is dis illusioned with his pal Danny just like the reast of us but he wont admit it so he figures if he comes here often enough with his Danny worship crap he will convince us that Dans the man and all is grand in Newfoundland. Lately though I am not sure if hes tryin to convince us or himself. I think now poor old Bones even believes his own mindless garbage. In the real world Bones things are just a little bit different that you have yourself convinced they are. In yours and Dannys world Bones things are perfect. The world I live in Bones is a bit different. The sun still comes up in the morning and it still sets at night but the way you talk Bones you think the friggin sun shines out of Danny Williams arse. This Graham guy and Shannon and a few others know exactly how to push your buttons Bones and when they do you open your mouth and out flows the endless crap as usual. Look how good it is look how good Danny is all the rest were fools Danny is the saviour all hail my man Dan. Bones bye get a friggin life. Or is this little game you play on the computer every day the only bit of enjoyment you get. you can dish it out Bones gotta give ya credit for that but you cant take it you always go on the friggin defensive with the mindless agrument show me the proof, show me the damage, show me the evidence. Well if you open your friggin eyes Bones the proof is all around ya and when someone points it out to you you cant even see it. Its more like you refuse to see it. What kind of magic mushroom spell do Danny have over ya there Bones that you can see no evil hear no evil and see and hear nothing that in any way might bust your Danny bubble. it aint to late Bones to take the advise of many people on here and do what their tellin ya. Get a friggin life.

Come to mention it, why hasn't SOMEBODY....ANYBODY taken to the airwaves to stop this mad tirade of destruction the premier is on?

    Maybe what we need to do is get rid of the unqualified duds in the heathcare system. That means cleaning house of people who are not qualified, who are lazy, who are hiding behind a union and are just there for the paycheque. The majority of the people in the system are hard working, compassionate people. But there are some bad apples and it is time to get rid of them. It is also time to stop the nepotism and hiring people based on who they know or whose district they live in. Like it or not, this has caused a lot of problems in the system and the whole it's who you know mentality to finding jobs has got to stop. Maybe if they started hiring qualified, hard working people, they might be able to start cleaning up the mess there. And this goes for government, private business and everywhere - start hiring qualified people instead of doing people favours to hire their friends and family. Things might run a lot better.

    Good lord Graham.

    Give the good Bay people a bad name? C'mon now Graham you don't see me taking a shot at townies. Perhaps you've been listening to too much K-rock, or whatever radio station they have the Baymen vs. Townies on.

    Refuse to see or handle the truth about anything the Williams is involved in? What then? What has he done wrong now? Did he f#@% up the tests and reporting from EH?

    Yep, Graham is yet another drag on society who will do nothing but gripe and complain about the government, no matter who they are. Because some how, the government has wronged him. Perhaps they denied you your usual EI check because you didn't get enough hours last year?

    Really though b'ys, from the way you moan a cry you'd think you had something to grumble about. This its all the governments fault is lame.

    Again, I can only assume that this must be coming from opposition. I would hope that, for Graham's and Reardon's sake, the only reason they're throwing around these petty complaints and insults is because they work for the opposition. If not, you seriously need help. Either that, or just plain get a life.
