Good guys finish last

Editor:

I'm sure glad the election is over! My doctor once said that if a man lives long enough he will die of prostate cancer. I think the BS will kill you before that happens.

A wise man once said that politicians are merely puppets. We know that Harper's strings are pulled by big oil. Gordon Campbell's strings were pulled by the multi-nationals (witness BC Rail). Now I hear that the election is over and Christy Clark can get down to some "serious" discussion with the premier of Alberta regarding pipelines. Does that mean that what we were told about her stand on pipelines was merely political rhetoric?

Can I say one more word about bullying. Bullying is quite simply an abuse of power. Both Stephen Harper and Christy Clark have spoken out against bullying at various times and then went ahead and used negative attack ads. Do I detect some hypocrisy somewhere?

What have I learned in all these years? Good guys finish last. Honesty is the key to mediocrity and corruption is the new morality!
