THE BIG LOSERS ARE IN OPEN PANIC . . . WITH GOOD REASON:
The Elitists in Canada and the United States just don’t get it, which shows how far removed they are from the People who pay their way through life, from the Wealthy Bankers and Stock Traders, to the Ultra Privileged Public Sector Workers who have been cocooned in comfort and security.
The Labor Unions don’t get it. The Teachers and Professors certainly don’t get it. The Politicians don’t get it either, that ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WORK FOR US, because for generations, it doesn’t JUST seem that WE’RE WORKING FOR THEM, because we actually have been. But now the REVOLT is underway.
BREXIT IN A MICROCOSM:
When Anne and I sold the Horse Farm, part of our plan was to build a much smaller house that would have been easier to maintain, cost less in taxes, and less in heat, light, and electricity.
SO . . . I DREW UP THE PLANS – and arranged for the contractors, agreed upon labor costs, and priced out all the costs for materials to build the entire home, which from my own personal experience in building our previous home, several horse barns, and doing major renovations in the past, was a slam-dunk for me.
AND THEN I HAD TO MEET WITH THE TOWNSHIP:
First problem was to get a telephone call returned by the Bureaucrat at City Hall in a timely manner, in this case it was South Glengarry . . . generally not until the next day or longer; because, very often, she was at meetings with other Bureaucrats or on courses. They love their courses and meetings.
The second problem, was setting up an appointment with the Permits Manager, because, to him, he was obviously more important than GOD, and busier to boot.
THE PLAN WAS FOR A 1200 SQUARE FOOT BUNGALOW ON A CONCRETE PAD:
Then it came down to how Anne I should build our new home, which was designed to be simple and totally uncomplicated. But, according to the Permit Manager, who did me a huge favor just by returning my call and speaking to me . . . he hit me with a mountain of Rules and Regulations that added more than a month’s time on the length of the Construction . . . and Tens of Thousands of Dollars to the cost.
Dealing with this PIPSQUEAK, whose salary – others and I pay for through our taxes, who will retire like a KING on our money when he hits 55-Years Old, had the power to be abusive, obstinate, condescending, obstructive and downright nasty . . . all of which he was. AND THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO ABOUT IT.
It seems that when you go to City Hall, the Public Servants Circle The Wagons, and protect their own, INCLUDING the Town Council and Mayor, since it appears to me, that they see their position in life, as it’s them against the Tax Payers.
I wasn’t the only person to have been so turned-off by this Public Sector Worker, and the attitude of the Council, that people like Anne and myself, simply said SCREW-IT, it isn’t worth it, and took our plans elsewhere.
Contractors stopped building in the Township as well, because it wasn’t worth the aggravation and stupid extra costs for them to build there, and still hope to make a decent profit . . . which, when Anne and I built our Horse Farm there more then a decade ago, it was a pleasure, BUT NOT ANYMORE. So people and Contractors aren’t building there, and have taken their business and construction elsewhere.
When Anne and I first moved to South Glengarry, we built our Horse Farm on a Gravel Road, which was a new experience for us, and to our chagrin, we soon discovered the nightmare of living on a road that wasn’t properly maintained, and when we called the Township for them to send the Grader to fix the road, the first reaction from the Roads Manager, was . . . that’s how it was living in the country. And everyone wants their road graded, and they will get to us in turn.
OUR REACTION WAS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT . . . “You’ll either fix the road by the end of the day, or the next contact you’ll have with us, will be through our Lawyer”, and they knew that I didn’t bluff, so our gravel road became the best maintained gravel road in the Township. But that’s not the way it should be.
WHY ARE SOME STATES AND CITIES HEMORRHAGING PEOPLE?
Wherever the LEFT holds power, whether in Cities like Detroit, Chicago and even in New York . . . or in States like California, where there are so many rules, regulations and restrictions, people who are the MAKERS are leaving.
In provinces like Quebec where the government tells you in which language you must communicate, English speakers with money have either already left or they’re going.
In the Province of Ontario, where the LEFT reigns supreme, and costs and taxes are going through the roof, Companies and MAKERS are looking elsewhere for greener pastures.
So, whether it’s in a small farming community like South Glengarry, or a Powerhouse State like California, PEOPLE OF SUBSTANCE are leaving, with the inevitable mess to follow.
AND THE LEFT WHO ARE IN CHARGE JUST DON’T GET IT:
The Liberals throughout Europe, and here in North America are screaming RACISM and BIGOTRY against the people who voted to LEAVE the Nameless and Faceless Bureaucracy of the EU, because they can’t see the TRUTH for what it really is. And finally . . . They’re getting their comeuppance.
