Last week marked the second anniversary of the election of the Trudeau Liberal government. So, halfway through, where are we? We are, or more specifically, I am disappointed and sometimes a little angry. I am disappointed that this Prime Minister is kind of the "same old-same old" -- neither terribly good, nor terribly awful, but certainly more pure politician than genuine servant of the people. But then, really, 'twas ever thus.In this, he's no different than pretty much all who went before. // I am angry that I actually bought into his deficit creating plan to get the economy going, and then spent not only that money but three times what he promised on social issues rather than economic issues. I get even angrier with him the more I watch his government fritter away remarkable opportunities to re-energize this country, especially its manufacturing sectors, in a generally robust economy. But kinda like Jack of beanstalk fame, he squandered the money on something else, and I don't think this country will have the same happy outcome Jack and his family did. I'm not saying some of those social issues aren't important, because yes they are. It is the imbalance that has simply not improved any Canadian's wallet that irritates me. It would have been, should have been so simple. // And I am disappointed because our Prime Minister seems more comfortable on the world stage, at the end of a selfie stick or on a magazine cover than he does doing the mucking out that needs to be done back here on the farm. "All hat, not cattle", they would say if he were Texan. Yes, he's talking the talk, but he just ain't walking the walk. He is exceedingly nice, no question. But, as they used to say at Wendy's "Where's the Beef?"
