Re: Federal government and the F35 fighter jets
Our Legoland prime minister and his henchmen seem to be squirming a little on this issue recently. Personally, I think we should outlaw air warfare, but barring that unlikely development I guess Canada needs new planes.
I do not think we need to buy “stealth” fighters in order to defend our country. The sneaky part is only required when we decide to invade or attack other people’s countries, and I see no eventuality where we should do so.
I do feel a little sorry for Minister of Defence Peter MacKay though. You see, Peter quite obviously thinks that he is entitled to spend tax dollars however he sees fit, like when he took the $100,000 military aircraft flight to get his ass to work from his fishing vacation, and saw nothing wrong with it.
Peter MacKay is a pretty wealthy guy and when he decides to buy something, I assume he just goes out and buys it, so why should he act any differently when spending our taxes? I guess he is just now finding out that most of us like to check the flyers before we make a major purchase.
