SILENCE IS GOLDEN, RICH


It's a classic case of Blaming the Victim.

The BC Government screwed up and screwed thousands of people in the act.

First, Victoria promised 100's of arts and community groups, like Little League Baseball for chrissake, dollars from Lotto and Bingo revenues.

So, promise in hand, these innocents went out and ordered the printer to print the tickets or iron the costumes or blow up the balloons.

Next thing they know, Victoria says, "A Big Ooopsie, we're not actually giving you the money after all."

Leaving Soccer Moms holding the proverbial bag.

BUT...

The media coverage of this insult is so extensive and soooo baaaad that Victoria has to back-peddle and find the money and hand it over anyway like they promised to do in the first place.

Can you say, 'MISMANAGE,' Boys and Girls?

Then...

Not content to just leave enough alone and let the dust settle and let hounds like me move on to the next day's outrage, Rich "I've Never Been Wrong About Anything in My Life, So there" Coleman, who happens to be - lord save us - the Housing Minister (make that the Hosing Minister) adds fuel to the fire with this little gem.

Non-profit and charity groups aren't entitled to guaranteed money from B.C.'s lottery revenues and old agreements to funnel cash from bingos and casinos to community organizations are no longer valid, Housing Minister Rich Coleman said Thursday.

Oh. I see.

Because the community groups had this irrational expectation that you would actually follow through on your original promises, they are now dressed up and put on parade as THE GREAT ENTITLED PEOPLE.

Yes, let's all through the old vegetables at the freaks.

Or...

Better yet, try to remember this kind of September when promises were hollow with nothing to follow...follow, follow, follow....

I am beginning to believe that Gordo and his bunch of gangsters are actually skimming tax money for themselves.

Will the RCMP investigate? Not on your Nelly, it could forfeit their double dipping as SkyTrain police!

The hucksterism and corrupt cronyism in the province has numbed everyone to the singular fact we have a dictator surrounded by moraless goons running the joint.

BC, the most corrupt place in the world......pity.

For anybody to consider Rich Coleman Premier material is to confuse him with Jordan Bateman... who might be.

After all, we all know, Mary Polak tells the truth... and takes action.
