Financial Institutions suck

I can't believe how long it takes to cash out some RRSPs. I mean, in today's computer age, this should take minutes, not freakin' days!

Financial institutions...banks, investment firms, insurance companies...are all taking us for granted. They don't need to offer better and more efficient service since we expect to get when we do, we aren't surprised.

It's been 7 days since I requested to withdraw some of my RRSPs...and bupkis. Nada. Still waiting for it to be deposited? Why is that? What the fuck is the delay?

Wow...the Leafs will win the Cup for sure now!

Wow. Eric Lindros in a Toronto Maple Leaves (sic...well...actually there's no such word as Leafs...but let's not quibble) uniform. GET THE PARADE ROUTE ready! I am sure that the Leaf Nation will be all a-quiver with heady anticipation.

I mean...the Big E AND Jason Allison!? How can they lose now? Stanley Cup for sure. Of course, if the Big E scratches his head to hard and gets a concussion, or Allison hurts himself putting his equipment on, then, you know...the Leaves will be in trouble...barring that though...CUP!

Insider stock tip: maybe invest in the drug company that makes Geritol...TO and Detroit should have a big rush on the pharmacies anytime now.

Western Separation

Interesting story today regarding the possibility of Western Separation. Seems to me that the metrosexuals and cultural elites of Toronto, you know, those idiots who consistently vote Liberal in spite of that party's overwhelming corruption, would be more concerned with Quebec separation than losing the "rednecks in Alberta". Problem is, Alberta is a have province whereas Quebec isn't.

Losing Quebec would mean saving billions of dollars a year in transfer payments and federal government programs and projects that are more bribes than things necessary for the smooth running of the public service. Couple that with scrapping the billion-dollar a year boondoggle that is Official Languages, and the savings would be incredible.

Losing Alberta, on the other hand (and B.C. I guess) would be economically devastating.

Hey, if Quebec wants to separate, do you think we could convince them to take Newfoundland with them. Two of the biggest have-not provinces in confederation gone? Sweet.
