I hope someone out there can give me an explanation for what I am going to write here. Like I said in the title I might be old but not senile and when I’m awake I am awake. Now this might sound crazy but last week there was one night I had trouble going to sleep so I just laid there with my eyes closed hoping that I would fall asleep. The only sound I could hear was low music on the radio and the snoring of my dogs. Wait, it does get crazy.

They all look good. What I mean is they look good and end up being good-looking pieces of garbage. What are 'they'? Most of the things made today are not made for quality but for looks and with the expectation that consumers are stupid enough to fall for looks instead of quality. They are typically right.

The reason I’m saying this, is because some people are working at jobs as councillors and they are not qualified for the job.
Here are some examples.
Some people are employed as counselors on how to raise kids or fix marriages. A lot of these people can only advise based on what they had read in books while they were taking the course and whatever their professors would give them in a lecture. They are not experts. A lot of those people have never had any experience in raising kids or were never married.

I'm posting today about what I call greedy landlords. The greedy ones are the ones that will lease a basement apartment to anyone without any regard for the safety of the tenant and are asking top price.

Are the police and taxi drivers above the law?
We all know that while driving we are not allowed to have a hand-held telephone or anything that would distract a driver from driving safely. Now what I’m wondering is this - are the police above the law? Because what happens when they have to enter a license plate number on their computer while they are driving? I ask this because most of the time I only see one policeman in the patrol car and that is the driver. I know when getting a message from the station they use their shoulder microphone to answer. What about when they receive a call from the station and given a plate number and they have to mark it down? I’m sure that in heavy traffic they will not pull over and mark it down.
The only way to show the people that the police are not above the law is to have two policeman in a patrol car. This would also be more security for the officers on patrols.
What about the taxi drivers when they get a call from the dispatcher? They have to reach over and pick up their microphone and sometimes the driver doesn't know where to go to get to the address that is their destination. They stay on until they get some instruction from the dispatcher on how to get there. I’m not suggesting that there be two in the car for these guys. But they should be equipped with a map of the city and pull over and find where they are suppose to go.
Really the point is a law isn't a legitimate law if doesn't apply to everyone equally. And in the case of police, they really should be serving as role models when it comes to obeying the law.
That's my rant today.

When I hear people, say "oh, we can’t get a job because the immigrants take them". That is because they will work at jobs that a Canadian will not work at and will say it doesn't pay enough. The Immigrant will come along and take the job and be happy to get the wages from it. And they'll stretch the money out as far as they can. Even though he or she is working at minimum wages they will live better on that than a Canadian would on the same wage.

When I was a kid living with my grandparents in this little town in Quebec, we had a priest that had the same answer for almost any thing tragic that would happen. His answer would always be "it was God's will". As kids we always had some questions for him because the monastery used to be next to the school and whenever we were on break he would come along and talk to the kids and as I said, we always had questions to ask him.
