over at the www.edmontonsun.com Richard Liebrecht was pointing out at http://www.edmontonsun.com/News/Edmonton/2008/11/12/7381976-sun.html

How the Mayor Tax & Spend of Edmonton is peeved at butts. It’s not coffee cups, nor car pollution, which would involve air quality, nor is it what gets poured into the river, that has Mayor Tax And Spend peeved. Nope its cigarette butts. . . .

This clown of Edmonton in the Mayors chair, should have started ragging on how Edmonton water has 140 parts per milion of god knows what, or he should have been promoting the City buying non-polluting vehicles.

But no, this Mayor Tax and Spend of Edmonton instead has a problem of a discriminating nature with butts. Probably after a meeting with former councilor Phair, is where the Mayors problems started. . . .

8 long years ago when he was just a rookie councilor, Discriminating MayorTax and Spend then, could have insisted that Edmonton put ashtrays around the city. Now though , Mayor Tax and Spend wants the province to heap more discrimination upon smokers to up the tobacco taxes, and then Mayor Tax and Spend of Edmonton wants all that money and more. Probably so he can declare smokers terrorists and rendition them to a foreign country where thier rights and freedoms can be abused, so that his morals are not so offended by the new terrorists of pollution!

The discriminating against smokers Mayor Tax and Spend of Edmonton would rather have the entire police force out in thier gas guzzling 8 cylinder cars double taxing people for driving and smoking , rather than actually fight real pollution or real crime.

Crime like the cost overruns on the art gallery, or those police should be investigating why the 23 ave and QE II interssection is costing almost 1/2 of a billion dollars!

For 1/2 of a billion , the police could have been picking up all those butts in Edmonton and getting some real work done.  Double taxing drivers on thier way to work, by the thousands in a day, is not real police work, it’s the pretend kind. . . .like blaming pollution on butts, while driving to work in the gas guzzler. . .

Yes indeed, having those police babysit everyones children at daycares would be better work thandouble taxing drivers in some pretend kind of work. And the citizens of Edmonton would probably be happy if the police were doing real work and babysitting everyones childrens in the various daycares around town.

Butt, Mayor Tax and Spend would not have those extra millions upon millions from the over ticketed drivers pockets to waste on white elephant projects, if the police were doing real work and babysitting instead of doing the pretend kind of police work and acting as Mayor tax and Spends double taxation teams.

The real butt doing the damage is not the ones lying on the streets, its the one sitting in the Mayor of Edmonton chair, saying leadership is double taxing whomever they can. . . .
