…Because some days it seems like working for The Government is what they really want us to do.
The state-owned CBC has very excitedly announced today that it has won the bidding war for the 2018 and 202 Goverment Games. They waged this big-multi-million-dollar bidding war using our tax dollars, against their foe – private citizens and their broadcasting companies, so that they, the state-owned CBC, could earn revenue instead of allowing their foes – the private citizen-owned broadcasters – to earn those revenues. And because they think that only they – the state-owned media – could possibly broadcast some sports. The only thing that could make this whole hideous government-controlled behemoth more socialist – is if all the athletes were being subsidized by governments. Oh hang on.
