Why on earth would you net fish already in a barrel? It's like saying "easy as netting fish in a net"?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!


Poor foolish burned out Ember!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals like you sure do spend a LOT OF TIME TRYING TO JUSTIFY


YOUR GRAND GOVT DISPENSED GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Too bad nobody warned you that getting such a deal would bring on SUCH FEELINGS OF GUILT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nor did they warn you that attempting to CENSOR the messengers WOULD NOT ASSUAGE THE GUILT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Here is a reminder of the SLIMY MESS that Wynne-bag Ontari-owe LIE-berals left for Doug Ford to clean up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Here is a re-post of a copy of a letter written by Ontari-owe health minister Hoskins to the head of the Ontari-owe Medical Association a couple of years back - that indicates why Ford govt is struggling to repair LIE-beral health care damage!! I find the letter to be a shameless and self serving document and I present it here along with some comments of my own in brackets):

Minister Hoskins' letter to OMA-first posted online-August 26, 2016 10:00 A.M.

Written by Hoskins August 25, 2016

Virginia M. Walley, MD
Ontario Medical Association
150 Bloor St. West, Suite 900
Toronto, Ontario M5S 3C1

Dear Dr. Walley,
I am writing in reply to your recent open letter with respect to physicians' compensation.

(Yes- LIE-berals who raised the education budget FIFTY PERCENT FASTER than the health care budget - in spite of the fact there are LESS STUDENTS- AND MORE PATIENTS means that LIE-berals are at fiscal war with doctors!!!!!!!!!!!)

Allow me to begin by reiterating my sincere disappointment in the outcome of the vote on the draft agreement that we both endorsed. With the benefit of much hard work on the part of your team and the government's, we had reached an agreement that would have increased the budget for physician compensation for Ontario's doctors by more than 10% over four years, while addressing some of the inequities in our system for family doctors and improving patient access to care.

(Clearly you did NOT reach an agreement as doctors refused to accept that one sided agreement! In other words they are now behaving like TEACHERS and other civil service Hogs-and doing so with MUCH GREATER justification than the Hogs! The days of doctors very regularly lounging on a golf course are long gone - buried in the huge pressure of a health care system that is very short on resources and demanding all sorts of shift work and LONG hours!

(There are differences between doctors and Hogs - one such is the vast increase in COSTLY training needed to be a doctor. Another is the strong stomach doctors need to deal with blood and vomit and pus and assorted sometimes infectious diseases they may come in contact with right before meal times! Further, the teacher NEVER has to pay for heat, light or rent on the classroom yet family physicians very often MUST do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Those walk-in clinics LIE-berals want us to use don’t fund themselves you know! And doctors must also pay for all the equipment in the clinic - the ultra sound machine and x-ray machine are the 2 biggest but there is a HUGE array of other gear needed to run a clinic-all paid for out of doctors billings which is GROSS income rather than NET - though LIE-berals try to deny this! It is terribly hypocritical to speak of doctor billing amounts without admitting how much of that gross amount is spent just keeping the clinic running!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I note that you made special mention of the issue of binding arbitration in your recent open letter. As you know well, I have always been clear that we are prepared to place binding arbitration on the table as one of a host of issues for negotiation. Indeed, the agreement just reached effectively included binding arbitration for fee-code reforms. It is hardly reasonable, however, that it be established as a pre-condition to discussions. You recognized that this was an unreasonable request once before and chose to resume negotiations under the cloak of a non-disclosure agreement, and I am hopeful that you will reconsider this position again.

(If Doc Hoskins was truly so reasonable he would admit that LIE-berals REDUCED health care funding by 7.5 percent and let doctors suck it up-and NOW a YEAR LATER-LIE-berals are playing holier than thou by offering up 10 percent more money - to be kicked in over 4 years at 2.5 percent per year-which translates into doctors having LESS money than they had a year ago and not getting back to that fiscal place for another three years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Currently our teacher HOGS are at war with Ford govt over “cost of living increases - yet LIE-berals think teacher HOGS deserve MORE while doctors deserve MUCH LESS Do that to a teacher and you wont hear the end of it - as Ford is finding out!! And DAMNED Silly Hogs are STILL whining about Mike Harris 14 YEARS later!)

Let me assure you, if the OMA's insistence that it be awarded the right of binding arbitration that we have provided to other public sector unions is so great that it is willing to be re-constituted formally as a union and accept all the obligations that other public sector unions have adopted - including withdrawing objections to salary disclosure that all other government unions are subject to and relinquishing the rights of members to incorporate individually - the government would be open to that discussion.

(That`s odd - Hoskins apparently has NO problem with arbitration for ambulance attendants and such - what’s the big deal for doctors?)

As you know, our physicians are already among the best paid in the country, with average gross billings of $364,000 a year - and in the case of specialists it is frequently several times that amount. Indeed, in 2014/15 more than 500 Ontario specialists billed in excess of $1 million a year.

(Yes, yes, WE ALSO KNOW Ontari-owe doctors have a HIGHER PATIENT LOAD since we have LESS DOCTORS than other provinces - and of course Ontari-owe billing costs are HIGHER courtesy of HIGHER OPERATING COSTS related to renting offices and paying health care levy- and price gouging for electricity and etc!!!!!!!)

In that context, we believed that a 2.5% annual increase per year was fair compensation for these services. I understand that parties will push hard during a negotiation, but it is frustrating to hear spokes people associated with the OMA assert that this increase would not even provide for the rate of growth in our health care system caused by population growth and an aging population. This question was examined objectively by objective third parties including ICES and CIHI who all pegged growth at below 2%.

(Health care funding levels were examined by independent third party groups you say? Would these groups be related to those other groups who ALWAYS insist that politicians DESERVE their raises in pay - in spite of public opnion? It seems LIE-berals can ALWAYS FIND SOMEBODY to agree with their CRAP!!!!!!!!!!)

I would also note that the Concerned Ontario Doctors group, which appears to speak largely for high-earning specialists and who believe there should be no constraints on their income, are increasingly vocal in suggesting that they now represent Ontario's doctors. In that respect, I would be interested to know if their recent proposal to de-list services, expand the use of walk-in clinics and reform payments to disadvantage family doctors and other underpaid physicians in favour of high-billing specialists represents official OMA policy?

(Ah LIE-berals - they DO enjoy that divide and conquer approach! With everybody looking to squeeze out more juice!! Maybe walk in clinic doctors OUGHT to be getting better paid since they spend more time at work on weekends and evenings? But this does not address the issue of reduced health care funding!!)

(LIE-beral mandated growth in RATIONED health care demand may only be 2 percent but being stingy with health care support for a PRIOR decade cannot be made up with 2 percent. Durham Region- for instance- has a rapidly growing population and HALF the number of beds that are available in Scarborough! An increase of 2 percent will not materially help Durham Region-nor will it help other regions where hospitals have been closed! Ontari-owe has the least number of doctors and nurses of any province in Canada and LIE-beral dancing around such issues ought to be beneath a sensible person!)

Looking forward, the government remains prepared to give the OMA some time to sort out its internal matters. However, the public interest cannot be paused indefinitely and, as you know, it has now been more than two years since Ontario's physicians have had an agreement on compensation.

In approaching future discussions, I also want to be clear in articulating the principles that will guide the government's approach.

Balance - we cannot accept an agreement that demands no limits whatsoever on what physicians can bill for their services. Simply stated, our next additional health care dollar must not only increase physician compensation, it must also help boost investments in home and community care, in our hospitals, our nurses and Personal Support Workers.

(If LIE-berals think some doctors are over billing and making unfair claims then why not investigate? There was a MAJOR stink a few years back about Methadone Clinics and funny billing practices there - why not clean house in some sensible way? In addition there are serious questions about how some natives are gaining access to Opiods and that ought to be looked at as well!! Or is that common sense to much to expect of LIE-berals?)

(There is also the matter of immigrant fraud in health care. LIE-beral judges have decreed that Canada Post has NO RIGHT to hold back packages that are known to contain FORGED documents such as Cdn health cards manufactured in places like Nigeria. LIE-beral hug a thug judges insist that cops must follow the package and then WAIT to see who picks it up. Shortage of police resources often makes that impractical and so false documents in the hands of illegal immigrants are used to access our scarce health care resources.)

(Does no LIE-beral recall mocking the NDP govt of Bob Rae for their health fraud troubles-the same woman giving birth in 3 separate hospitals hundreds of miles appart-on the same day? Such a BUSY lady! Photo health cards have done good work to reduce the number of fraud cases but it has not been halted and MUCH still needs to be done in this area.)

(Indeed “birth tourism” has become the new industry - in which pregnant tourists conceal their status and over stay their welcome so they can give birth in Cdn hospitals at Cdn expense and their kids can acquire Cdn citizenship and thus be able in later years to EXPLOIT the Cdn immigration system further - has become very popular!! So popular that at some Cdn hospitals- 25 percent of all births are to tourists freeloading on the system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Fairness - the government is determined to keep Ontario's doctors among the best paid in Canada and we will dedicate increasing resources toward that goal, as we proved with our commitment of a more than 10% increase over four years. In doing so however, we must address the inherent inequities within the compensation structure that unfairly rewards certain specialists at several times the rate of the average family doctor. This is an area where we achieved consensus and it is imperative that we take action with specific reforms and concrete change.
Growth - we recognize that Ontario's population is growing and that our society is aging. Both factors increase demand on the health-care system. We also believe, as we demonstrated in the draft agreement, that we must make room for hundreds of new doctors each year in Ontario.

(Yeah-LIE-berals will “make room” for more doctors with whatever gravy is left over by Hogs! Don’t count on much !)

I will end by reinforcing our bottom line as clearly as I can - the government is committed to keeping Ontario's physicians among the best paid in Canada, but we will not relinquish our responsibility to ensure that all of Ontario's physicians are paid fairly and not just a select few; nor can we in good conscience surrender our ability to also invest in other areas of our health-care system such as home care and community care, investments that matter not only to patients, but to the majority of physicians as well.
Sincerely,
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister
c: Mr. Tom Magyarody, OMA CEO
Dr. Bob Bell, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care

(Uh huh - and Hoskins was so successful at selling this sh+t for Ontari-owe LIE-berals that he jumped ship and joined the federal LIE-bersals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Here is an older article from Metroland newspapers illustrating the way Wynne-bag LIE-berals were weakening our education system and making life easier for teacher HOGS . With some comments of my own in brackets):

The Province is looking at the "de-streaming" of the high school curriculum for Grade 9 students and that would be a move in the right direction for the school
system, not to mention for 13- and 14-year-olds who don't necessarily know which academic path to follow when they begin high school.

"Streaming" involves students opting for ' "applied" or "academic" courses. An
academic course load is one required for entry into university, whereas applied courses would be more applicable to community college.

Students who opt into the applied stream in Grade 9 and 10 can have this affect their options for Grade 11 and 12 courses and in turn their eligibility for college and university

"Streaming" has been a source of contention within the Ontario education system as studies have suggested it negatively impacts black, low-income and marginalized students, who are over represented in the applied stream.

(Well yes - if you come to school with the idea that doing well in school represents “selling out” to white racists then yes- there will be POOR RESULTS shown by Black kids!! Kids who accept the word of LIE-berals that Canada is a country FULL OF SYSTEMIC RACISTS - will not work hard to fit in!! Which explains why there are so many violence prone gang bangers on our streets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

People for Education, an education advocacy group, has been sounding the alarm for years, saying taking just one applied course - math, in Grade 9 - gives teens next to no ; hope of going on to university.

(Unfortunately that group should BE MORE WORRIED about the number of kids - especially blacks and natives who do NOT graduate from high school!! That is a REALLY CRIPPLING FAILURE since over 75 percent of all jobs these days require some post secondary education!! Too bad the LIE-beral solution is only to DUMB DOWN the curriculum so EVERYBODY will be ignorant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

A recent report by research group Social ; Planning Toronto found many students and parents didn't understand the difference between applied and academic courses, and that students believed they could transfer from applied to academic courses later even though statistics show that rarely happens.

(People who are too ill educated to be aware of the academic requirements for becoming a carpenter versus an archeologist aint likely to HAVE archeologists in the family anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The Durham District School Board recently launched a Grade 9 for All pilot project, which saw two schools - Brock High School

and Oshawa's Maxwell Heights Secondary School offer a mixed applied and academic Grade 9 math course as a pilot project this year. The board said the program might be : expanded for the 2018-2019 school year.

The DDSB pilot project is a proactive measure as the province is determined to over haul Grade 9 with an eye to eventually abolishing streaming. Education Minister Mitzie Hunter said separating students into university-bound academic-level classes versus the more hands on applied option is a concern because teens in applied courses are less likely to finish high school or go on to post-secondary education.

(Abolishing streaming means NOBODY gets a good education!! The dumb kids remain dumb and the smart kids are allowed to COAST THROUGH LIFE!! But what will happen to the Coasters once they get into the REAL WORLD and have to compete with seriously educated foreign born competitors??????????????????)

"We want to see Grade 9 as a year where students can explore their pathways and get excited about their pathways. We do not want it to be a year where students become de-motivated and disengaged in school; said Hunter.

(POOR STUPID LIE-berals!! TOO MANY KIDS are already “dis-engaged”!!

We agree. Slotting students into the pods ; of applied and academic courses in Grade 9 is regressive thinking; keeping students' options wide open in the early stages of high school is the best course.

(PRIOR to arriving in Grade 9 - the kids had EIGHT YEARS in which to prove their scholarly abilities and the ones with good motivation and parental support DID MOVE AHEAD of peers holding CRAP attitudes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals are prepared to NEUTER our entire education system to cater to the already compromised egos of certain under performing pressure groups - who are LOOKING FOR EXCUSES AND seeking OTHERS TO BLAME for their personal issues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(In a world were education is critical - our LIE-berals want to dispense with the kind of academic excellence that can produce productive and skilled students who will help build a MODERN ECONOMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals want to create a very costly day care system whose primary goal is to INDOCTRINATE kids who don’t have the skills to argue back and whose parents are too busy paying taxes to notice what is being done to their kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals have put their own drive for power and their need to indoctrinate kids AHEAD of the need for our kids to get the skills required to GET AND TO HOLD GOOD JOBS!!!!!!!!!!!)

(As I have said before - LIE-berals believe an unskilled and ill educated population is easier both to control and to BUY votes from - and of course LIE-berals are quite prepared to cater to a discontented anti white minority for the sake of buying more votes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)




In other news as supplied by Marni Soupcoff from National Post, published January 29, 2020 -we get this:

Promoting equality by tearing down what works is a terrible idea. It is awkward because these solutions involve punishing deserving people — some of them minorities themselves — to achieve inclusivity

In Seattle, the public-school system is taking apart a popular gifted program for elementary and middle school students because white and Asian students are disproportionately represented in the initiative.

(Oh dear me - how can society survive if it has a pack of highly educated young people who are white or Asian to turn to for scientific theory, economic ideas or medical aid?? LIE-berals DO NOT want have to answer logical science based questions about their climate hysteria or their gravy grabbing carbon tax scam that only cleans cash from wallets and leaves the dirt in the air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(LIE-berals PREFER a dumb and passive society that does not QUESTION!!!!!!!!)

The concerned activists seeking to reduce discrimination, bias and inequality in society have often weakened their righteous cases by focusing on taking things away from the “haves” rather than on expanding opportunities for the “have nots” and good examples of the phenomenon abound this month.

In Seattle, the public school system is taking apart a popular gifted program for elementary and middle school students because white and Asian students are disproportionately represented in the initiative.

At Yale, the art department is removing a well-liked introductory course on art history from the syllabus because it focuses on Western art, which is male and white.

In the entertainment world, Melissa Silverstein, the founder and publisher of the Women and Hollywood website, has suggested that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts address the lack of diversity in its awards nominations by giving no award at all when a category’s shortlist isn’t sufficiently varied in terms of race and gender.

If translated to the Academy Awards, this idea would have meant no best director Oscar this year because the nominees are all men.

It is awkward because these solutions involve punishing deserving people — some of them minorities themselves — to achieve inclusivity. Do we really have to eliminate the possibility of Bong Joon-ho, an Asian man, becoming the first Korean to win an Oscar in order to make up for the fact that fantastic female directors Greta Gerwig and Lulu Wang didn’t get a nod from the academy?

The situation in Seattle illustrates the point with more serious real-world consequences: Gerwig and Wang will get by just fine even if they don’t have gold statuettes bestowed upon them - as I suspect they’d be the first to admit - but kids who don’t get an adequate education can lose their chance at a productive and satisfying life.

(LIE-berals are POISONING the minds and blighting the futures of kids from various ethnic groups with all the “systemic racist white society” CRAP being fed to kids!)

In a piece for The Stranger, staff writer Katie Herzog noted that at a recent Seattle school board meeting, “many of the parents who voiced their support of (the gifted program) were brown or black,” with one father explaining that the “program does more for black children, particularly black boys, than it does for their peers.”

(Being able to point to a history of academic excellence NEVER HURT ANY job applicant - no matter the race or colour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Herzog said over the past few months, she’s spoken to minority parents of kids in the Seattle gifted program and many of them say the same thing. “Their kids aren’t identified as academically gifted by their teachers, they get bored in the general ed classroom, and then end up being tagged as disruptive when what they need is just accelerated curriculum,” she wrote.

The 'program does more for black children, particularly black boys, than it does for their peers'

So, rather than take the advantage away from these minorities — as well as the white and Asian students who benefit from the accelerated curriculum — why not focus on extending the advantage to more minorities who could use it? This is what the parents Herzog spoke with are suggesting, proposing such initiatives as universal testing and testing on weekends to determine which students qualify for the program.

(Our society NEEDS clever, innovative and highly skilled people - and THEY need warehouse staff, delivery drivers, machine operators and accountants - the smartest people in the room tend to make work for the lesser achievers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

As Herzog summed up, “These parents are highly aware of the racial disparities in the program, but unlike the school board, they want to fix the cohort model, not end it.” Maybe the worst part is that Seattle School Board director Chandra Hampson dismissed the minority parents’ concerns out of hand, accusing them of being “tokenized” by white parents, as though they couldn’t possibly have come to their conclusions on their own.

(The REAL IRONY is that minority parents often realize that THEY ARE PART of white society - since they and their kids were BORN HERE - and they are NOT JUST VISITING like tourists!! Becoming part of high achieving main stream education means becoming an integral part of our society!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

It is rarely the case that a disparity can only be addressed by lowering the ceiling; oftentimes it is just as effective to let more people in the building. “Educational opportunity isn’t a capped resource (at least it doesn’t have to be),” columnist Danny Westneat wrote in The Seattle Times. For example, in the Seattle gifted program, “there aren’t a fixed number of slots, like in, say, admission to a selective college. So one kid getting in has no effect on another kid’s chances.”

(OMG - gifted programs are open ended and available to anybody willing to do the work and be recognized for skill and diligence!! How AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
