Optometrists ARE Terrorists!

As can be seen from the eye chart below discovered in a cave in Hamilton, Ontario Liberal Health Minister George Smitherman may have been correct calling Optometrists "terrorists".


Smitherman identified Optometrists as terrorists because of optometrists suggesting they might withdraw some services due to concerns about fees.

"Smitherman had been speaking about those who would withdraw services from some of the province's most vulnerable" said a Liberal spokesman. (see here)

So, according to this, the Liberals must also believe teachers are terrorists as well (how much more vulnerable can you get-kids!).

Following their own definition, all strikers are "terrorists". Come to think of it, some of those steelworkers have beards that would put Osama to shame...

Kind of a double standard there! The teachers regularily hold our kids hostage, but the Liberals use that tough talk on optomitrists.
What's worst-missing an education or not getting an eye exam?

Can't read if you can't see - quite the paradox...

Teachers strikes are sending any family who can afford it to private schools.
I've worked in schools for over 20 years, and I'll tell you that in my experience many teachers have a "what's in it for me?" attitude.
The board of education is such a huge bureaucracy, that it's created a climate of hierarchy based on seniority and union demands regardless of whether the individual teacher has earned their rewards by being a good teacher.
The board of education and its employees are so fat with expectation from the taxpayer, and waste that it could make a person sick to think about it.

It might be considered progress that Smitherman didn't refer to them as "militants".

This won't really have effect, I consider like this.
