Markets Don’t Like A Coalition Government? Awww…

Listening to the CBC radio news today about the crisis in Europe over the Italian election results, the statement was made:

Markets don’t like a coalition.

Hey, that’s one more reason for me to like a coalition. Wish we had one of those instead of a mogul megalomaniac running a one-man show in Ottawa.

By the way, did you notice that markets are now personified. They have “likes” and “dislikes.”

Seeing as corporations have corporate personhood – all the rights, and more, of a human being (plus tons of power – and immortality to boot), I guess it was only a matter of time until the Markets became persons, too.

Two More Things, Ms. May, SVP

Two more things:
1. I neglected to add that this coalition or merger of Greens, New Democrats and Liberals should move to enact Proportional Representation as soon as possible after election. I’m tired of holding my nose and voting for the candidate with the best chance of preventing a Harper “majority”

2. Parliament is a better place for having your quick brilliance and civil, but fearless, tongue.
