Mr. Ed is an ass

Note: This is a rant about the premier of Alberta. Most of the comments I talk about are provincial issues, but there is one universal truth that we can agree on. POLITICIANS CANNOT BE TRUSTED

Once again, I feel nothing but rage and disgust at our so called Honorable Premier Ed Stelmach, who will now be referred to as “Mr. Ed”. It’s bad enough that he had to be shamed into coughing up on Infrastructure funds for Calgary (and he only did that after they lost King Ralph’s seat in a by-election), not only do they refuse to institute rent control in the most expensive city to live in Canada (My rent is going up 18% to $110/month in May), but Now this jackass (he really is a jackass and I can’t wait till the next election to get rid of this guy) has decided to sue a 24 year old University Student because he went and bought which now links to a Wikipedia entry to this provinces LAMEST premier.

This guy has proved to be a major asshole from the beginning, but now he’s suing University students, NICE. I think the next thing he’s going to do is start forcing kids to eat vegetables covered in Tabasco sauce. I swear this guy is so out of touch with the world, that’s it’s amazing that he’s able to use a telephone. For the record, I’m sure that this guy has never been online.

One thing I find strange was how this guy was able to buy that domain 4 MONTHS after he was became premier. He was never elected premier; he took control of the Tory Party after the previous leader stepped down. Since he took the position, this guy has done nothing but prove that he doesn’t give a damn about the people of Alberta. All he cares about is being a stooge for big business, and lying to the people of Alberta. After he took office, we made a promise for new Infrastructure, and then he added all these bullshit conditions. As a result the mayor of Calgary was furious, and he wasn’t shy about it. He was all over the local media, as well as the media in Edmonton (the provincial capital), about how dishonest they were. It got quite verbal between the city and the province, and the province changed their minds after loosing the former premier’s riding. The problem is that they’re still doing the same old crap now.

Let’s get one thing straight, Mr. Ed is a public figure and he has to learn to deal with it, and suing University students is not the way to go about it. Sending out a lawyer was not a smart idea, because…well lawyers are stupid. Sure, they know about the law, and get paid a lot of money for it, but they do not have a clue about what is going on in the real world. Remember, its lawyers in the US who thinks it’s a good idea of sue their customers (I’m talking to you RIAA).

Also, they lawyer is suing for all the funds earned from the site, (which used to link to his own website). The lawyer is suing for the $20/month this guy, a student, was getting from Google Adwords. I swear, I’ve never meet lawyer that I didn’t want to smack in the face with a shovel.

Keep in mind that an election doesn’t have to be called until early 2010, but I read somewhere that once could be called this spring (but I doubt it). This guy is an embarrassment to the province, and need to go. The issue were having right now is the same issue that we had in the Federal government recent. We have a party that’s been in power too long, and the power has gone to their heads.

Let’s just get rid of these guys and get a new government into power here.
