You can't always get what you want...

Listening to the Rolling Stones and thought the song is appropriate for today's parliament. Opposition parties seem to understand this quite well and are more than willing to compromise but it seems that the current government is having a difficult time with the concept of collaboration.

It will be interesting to see if a new Liberal leader, with a coalition agreement in his back pocket, will have any impact on Stephen Harper's thought processes, leading to a true conciliation in the House. This is what the public wants, after all, a government that buckles down to work for the good of the country.

Just heard talk about this recession turning into a "Depression". Lord have mercy on us all! Perhaps we can keep our heads buried in the snow for a few more weeks, at least until the holidays are over. It's going to be hard to play catch up anyways. What's another month or so.

At least, there will be 18 more Canadians who won't have to worry about their incomes.
