Where doth the Money Go Ontario? A real rant!

This just p****** me off…

Funny how some things just sit in your craw and the evil bile leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Many of you know I enjoy seeing doctors, practicing medicine folks (you know the jokes) in a vain attempt to try to feel just one iota better.  One day without arthritic bones and jerking joints screwing with my pain receptors.

So on Monday the new doc, #376, says “hey, you’re really screwed up, but let’s do some tests just to see how screwed up you are.  Just for fun, ya know.”

“Well okey dokey.” Says the hick from Kansas, now a Permanent Resident of Canada…until it expires in September.

So today in the mail I get a notice from the local hospital with my appointment for an MRI.  That’s efficient!

May 28th, Sunday, 7:30 pm.

God I hope their not rushing things!!!!!!!!

Well, I can wait another 4 months.  Not going anywhere until September!

But…but…but…I’m reading the paper this morning, the Star of all great things, and the Province of Ontario is giving away $7 million dollars to communities to celebrate the provinces 150th birthday!!!!!!

Party hats and balloons!!!!

$7 million dollars.  With a creative logo showing “150” wrapped under “Ontario”.  Only costs $100,000 to the PR firm.  (My 4 year old grandson coulda done better.  Cheaper.)

$7 million dollars.

The story continues though.

So, being the investigative ranter that I am, I called my local Samsung distributor to investigate further.  Besides TV’s they also make MRI machines!  (that’s a bit scary…who’s watching who when you turn on the tube?  Another topic altogether)

It just so happens that this week only, it’s a BOGO on MRI’s due to overstock…two MRI’s for the price of one!

Only $6.8 million!

Party hats or MRI’s

The bile is rising
