Already posted on Testing the online Political Compass: (Oldest first)

Speaking of confusing political lines, Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty has turned a hard right towards those who have supported him, helping him to win elections. It is a wonder that as he pulled to the hard right that he didn't kill himself crashing coming and going at the same time. He must really dislike his own wife who is a teacher. Is he playing tough man? Oh but isn't she in one of the unions who settled with the maniacal Liberals and the lieing Minister of Education?
As did the neo-con Reform Conservatives under the leadership of maniacal Mike Harris, he instructed the high school drop-out John Snobelen dare I say, Education Minister to create a crises, recored for posterity. These two liars have whipped up a frenzy creating a crises where there isn't any. Are they drama students?
We also had another "ally" the NDP Premier Bob Rae impose the memorable and totally ineffective "Social Contract" which was to help lower the huge deficit at the time. Younger teachers lost the most money at the time. I know I did as I was on the grid, stuck for 3 years. At least this time the younger teachers will be the benficiaries, as they government attempts to divide the young and older teachers. Divide and conquer is the MO of any union busting management.
Both the Liberals and the NDP are comparable to Benedict Arnold when they have blatantly used the teachers in particular, and other public sector unions to set the example of restraint. Benny committed treason and McGuinty who now is the enemy of the unions and others who supported this guy. They have shot themselves in the foot losing support, especially prior to the upcoming by-elections. McGuinty is trying to look like the "hard-ass dad' laying down the law quite abusively, so he will appear to voters as standing up to the public sector unions. He hopes to score some points from the neo-cons, as if, and centrists who all want the defiicit lowered. We do too! This government needs to take a look at some of the well respected economists' forecasts supporting us, as the need for all if this is not necessary and in a few years Premire dad will look like a joke.
So what is next? This government is even outdoing the previous NDP and their "social contract", maniacal Mike Harris and his unjust hatred toward teachers. Now we face the gutting of our contracts, just like that. Everything gained over decades of negotiations and very few work stoppages while negotiating. is all for not.
In the world of life, when a contract is signed, and one party does something pre-emptively to benefit themselves, doesn't this constitute a breech of contract? Usually when contracts are signed they are binding. You cannot negotiate or set new rules in place before the next round of negotiations begin.
Get wih the program Dalton. We will see you in court, and we will win! You will then have cost the good tax payers of Ontario (which by the way includes teachers), more money than you were going to save in the first place.
This is what you might say is, 'penny wise and pound foolish'.
