Here at Incoming Bytes we were optimistically hoping to resist temptation. I wanted to digress enough to stick with interesting stuff --and thus be able to ignore following, studying and dissecting the ONTARIO election that just resulted in another Liberal minority anyway.
My new mantra for this Ontario election was:
"Vote but ignore. .... Vote but ignore...."Hold-'yer-nose'-and vote" (in counter-rythm) . ......and Vote-but-ignore....."
Catchy beat, isn't it?
To start off with, every farmer knows it was the wrong time for an election, but let us not rant.
Our astute readers also recognize bad timing, bad choices, political lies, attack-dog ads, eternal promises , the politics of fear -- and the fraternal and ridiculous hee-haw-see-saw contest of political "parties"......period.
Therefore, as a service to our readers, WE happily cut through all of that "flung dung" and ignored it. Tomatoes and carrots are heaps more interesting.
The fact is, as usual, nothing changed on the political landscape. Thinking about it, in rural Ontario, there are always more important things to do anyway.
It's harvest time, a process offering genuine rewards to those who put effort into it , and there are also more than enough perky diabolical diddlers , deceivers, and untruthful whiners at hand already without adding blathering striped politicians to the intense mix.
So--- hold an election at harvest time, will 'ya?? Well, okay, it's all about harvest-time choices then...
Don't get me wrong,--- this is serious business, at harvest time difficult and complex issues can arise too. Mind-boggling and sterling choices must be made in good conscience, --such as "which healthy organic vegetables shall we choose to dine upon this evening?
Keeping that in mind,
"On October 6th,we voted for vegetables ".
That may be a more revealing statement than some may care to admit.
I feel better already.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
