our benevolent premier declared that the second monday in february will be family day. a paid holiday honoring families in british columbia. another holiday; if that isn't nice, what is?
our beloved premier is very low in the public opinion polls and with an election just around the corner she's giving us another holiday. it might be called family day but being in a traditional family has fuck all to do with whether or not you get the day off. it all comes down to who you work for. all provincial civil servants get the day off but federal civil servants do not. all the service industry workers basically get fucked too. i needed some postage stamps and saw a mailman out on his route, federal civil servant, so i went to the local post office that is inside a 7-11. the post office was closed but the 7-11 clerk was happy to sell me some stamps. so the letter carriers were out on their routes but the workers in the post office had the day off. go figure.
as near as i can figure there are 3 things a politician must know:
1. familes - good.
2. middle class - good.
3. drunk drivers - bad.
it seems that every time a politician fucks up they either come out and say we must do more for our middle class and families or we must crack down on drunk drivers. in canada it seems like the provinces compete for the toughest drunk driving laws.
as a member of the middle class and a family guy to boot i can honestly say we don't need any fucking help or stupid holidays. the people that really need help are the working single mothers and crack whores. i know a few single mothers and they have it tough. i don't know any crack whores but it sounds like a really tough job.
and now, a moment of silence in memory of a fine man who will no longer visit this blog or consider me his friend.
i love you sons of bitches.
