Ambrose Bierce's definition of 'idiot' : "Member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs is at all times dominant and controlling".

- I pity the Premier for allowing herself to kowtow to the Prime Minister's request for her Silence.

When, the Premier, of a province like Newfoundland and Labrador that holds a decent percentage of the natural resources of Canada and the greatest strategic location , agrees to abide by the SILENCE commanded of her by the Prime Minister of Canada at the beginning of her reign, and he then literally kicks her in the face on ever turn when she needed him, why wouldn't she have a countenance of BEWILDERMENT on her face? The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has been shafted in Canada. If we had gone it alone in 1949, given our great natural resource base and prime location both of which served Canada very well economically, we could have most likely ended up being one of the Great (G20) economies, that sprung up after the Second World War in a time of "giddy" economics. Yes, folks please think about it, we had the Great Resources, we had the Great Great Location with every point situated on the Atlantic Ocean trade routes, all that we needed to become a G20 country was to garner a few good, honest managers who had the interest of our country/province at heart over, their own personal interests. After we became part of Canada our politicians bowed down to Ottawa's every wish and passed our country and our natural resources over lock, stock and barrel for the betterment of the rest of Canada, while forsaking Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Shame on You Ottawa for pulling the wool over our eyes. Now Please do what Loblaws are doing in Bangladesh, where they are trying to bring about ethical change in the garment industry to ensure the safety of their workers they employ while they are making a living for their families. It didn't take them long after the collapse of the Garment Industry Factory to understand that something had to be done. Ottawa needs to do an accounting of the hardships it has perpetrated on the province of Newfoundland and Labrador over the past 64 years in its milking of our raw natural resources for the benefit of the other Canadian provinces.

I am bewildered at the decisions made by the Dunderdale government. We all know that crime is INCREASING not DECREASING in NL. Yet, the government makes cuts to resources and programs that deal with these offenders. In comparison, it's like getting rid of medical personnel when there is a widespread epidemic. Makes no sense.

I can tell you now ,what peaple will tell King and Dunderdale to do with thier Blue Book,but i won't at this time

Darin King is not in touch with his department. He should take some time to consult with the front line people of each division before making uneducated decisions. It will be too late when an indivicual loses their life because they fall through the cracks in the justice system.

Their decisions have such huge implications that it seems like only an election could help clear up the confusion among the citizenry. Unfortunately that can't happen for another two and a half years. I think Mark Twain was onto something when he said, "Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason."
