It’s still not over.

I’m too nauseated to scribe any insightful witticisms.

Both sides are juvenile, spoiled, egotistic assholes.

A plug…

One of the best things about the blogosphere is that not only do you get to express your opinion about anything you damn well feel like, but you canread the thoughts of others as well. That has been the creatively liberating side of the Internet – and the side I like the most.

Take this blog entry for example. The author of the applyliberally blog has continued to entertain me with his or her (I can’t find the “about me” info… but I’m likely just overlooking something obvious. I do that.) witty observations and well-composed prose.

For example, the entry that I linked to asked some very fundamental questions of the ATU. Check this out:

To anyone who wants to bitch and whine because I’m a member of  ”Progressive Blogs” and I seem to come across as “anti-union” I suggest you give your head a real good shake.

Maybe it’s time to think of it the other way.  Someone who considers himself ultra-liberal can’t sympathize with this union.  Almost three quarters of this city can’t find it in their hearts to support this union.  Ottawa City Council, made up of a lot of lefties, is predominantly against the union’s demands.  Maybe it’s time to consider just how badly this union is damaging the reputations of all unions — even the ones who do good things and make “concessions” while bargaining during a recession.  Say it with me now “CON-CES-SIONS”.

Ah! The author is a “he”!

Keep up the good work, applyliberally dude!

City Council proves to be as stubborn as the ATU! Yay team!

Ottawa’s “embattled” City Council met into the wee hours of the night discussing the ATU’s latest proposal. Undoubtedly putting back urns of coffee, chain-smoking cigarettes and ordering in pizza from Lorenzo’s..

OK – they likely weren’t smoking.

Which they essentially turned down by presenting a , uh, counter-offer.

And yes, I fully expect the union to turn down the counteroffer and we’ll be no further ahead – leaving Canada’s Capital City once again without transit for the foreseeable future.

This reminds me of a game that little boys play when they stand side by side to see who has the most, um, “distance” – if you get my drift. It is a game better appreciated in the winter where the lengths of  the yellow tracks in the snow are easier to compare.

So what next? Like I said, I don’t expect the ATU to go along with the City – but I hope I end up eating my words.

But remember – never eat yellow snow, eh?
