Cut them all off

Lisa over at Dust my Broom has posted some thoughts on the funding cut to the Status of Women, and I am in agreement with her thoughts on the subject.

Being a man with a testosterone poisoned mind I have learned to tread lightly on this subject so not to appear to be keeping the sisters down, but it is clear that the SOW does not, nor possibly could it represent all women.

They are a special interest group that only represent a FEW, and if the FEW want to keep it going they had better pony up the cash because it is unfair to the REST to have their tax dollars going to prop up select groups while ignoring others.

In other words,' you can't fund one without the other', and unless the government wants to run a deficit it would be impossible to fund every type of advocacy group out there, both existing and those that would suddenly arise knowing they can get some cash. I think I can speak for most Canadians when I say that we do not want to fund the "Committee for Redheaded Norweigens who like Squirrels a bit too much"

The Liberals do not like this very much because groups such as the SOW only survive by creating victims, and the nanny Liberals then can hold a nice press conference to announce their support for the victim(s) and pass out large amounts of cash for unaccountable programs in an effort to appear to care, results be damned.

The word 'results' is not even in the Liberal vocabulary, but this should not be surprising considering that this is the way the Liberals have governed for years, and the only result has been billions of dollars spent with little in the way of accountability for the money.

S of W certainly does not represent me.

I suspect that this is true for most women, but watch for the Liberals and NDP to continue to tell you otherwise.
Afterall, they know what is better for you than you do.
