I think this is rather clever:

Is game of pool or game of politics?
Pool is just Newton’s Law in action so let do a little rewrite
First law politic/government
An idea that is at rest will stay at rest unless an external group acts upon it.
An idea that is in motion will not change it direction unless an external group acts upon it
Second law politic/government
Action = Idea x Acceleration
A = change tax/time
Third law politics/government
Idea = – Idea
Ball is ideas
Pockets are completed ideas
Felt is the community as whole
Rakes are your developer/large property owners
Chalk is your campaign funding
Player is the councilor
Pool cue is amount you pay the councilors
Pool Brush is blogger/ TV/ radio/ newspapers/ media
Cue ball new budget money
Black ball is debt
Game is length of council sits (4 years)
Ballard room is region
Pool table rules is Ontario municipal act
Cushion is concern citizens/actual voter
Cushion respond is reflection public to idea (soft little defection hard cushion larger defection)
Rack is start of new council
Cue tip is the mayor
Frame to the table is municipal employees and business that provide goods and service to public
Pool lines and marks are the special interest groups/children
Past pool game
Opportunity to build multi rec Centre, hole at Hume and Hurontario new municipal building cloak as a new library, will exclude pretty river private soccer field/Dome it federal government funding with municipal twist
Present pool game
Looking at our pool table
Ball stripe is long down table shot off the multiple banks to make this shot but there also black ball right beside it. Hit it you lose the game. This is new Multi-Rec Centre at YMCA with multiple interest groups: hockey figure skater swimmers curlers baseball, YMCA, local community
Ball two solid is easy shoot cover outdoor rink
Third ball solid is cover regulation size outdoor pool
So you have a new game you’re down 2 games. You are the new council 2010 they seen past councils failures
Remember no balls have been sunk. New council can take one long difficult shoot or two easy shoots. What would you do? Our council chose two easy shoot.
Let’s review this shot
Two balls are in the pocket. We have two goals completed
Third solid ball was also hit they purchased Fisher field ready for future shot.
Fourth ball terminal property missed first attempt but been setup for another shot
This game is almost over fourth ball is still rolling but the game time is running out.
In your opinion the pool players aren’t that good so you can A) support a new group of better player B) play the game yourself
I say group vs. individual, as this is a funny pool game it take 5 players to hit cue ball and sink a ball
If don’t want to play. You want to watch a better game. You need to up the game. You need better pool stick. Pay the councilors more money.
The felt on the pool table is affected by brushes: Nobody, Enough is Enough, Chadwick,
Say what you want about Chadwick agree or disagree so be it, but he is involved. He is playing the game.
Enough is enough is like he rubbing the whole pool table with sandpaper. He damages the felt, damage the wood, damaging pool table line. In effect offer little to improve the game. If he find table so bad, maybe he should find another table. He offers little in solutions. On other hand maybe his plan is to refinish the whole table: repair the felt, refinish sides. If your concern his readership level is large than yours so is National Enquirer quality vs quantity
Nobody sometime I find you clean the table .You do a great job, open discussion. Other times, I believe you dip your brush in beer and spread your beer dip brush all over the table. It stinks
I would suggest you change the name of your blog to “ Somebody” from “Nobody” and get involved. You do and can affect the table. Take a pay cut become a player at very least write a few cheques. One player can’t make a difference only a group.
Our problem is the system, 7 vote should I say 9, votes one for mayor, one for deputy mayor. You can be everyone last choice at election time but take number one position. If survey man ( Brian Saunderson) does run in the next election. He will be elected but he will be totally ineffective unless he can muster up a voting block of 5.
This year local elections should be interesting: Collingwood, Toronto, and Orillia
Sign up at municipal office. I’ll vote for you if you become a “Somebody”. Yes, I drop off cheque too.
PS Pool is covered, the rink covered, is what I prefer no, but they are operating. They are better than nothing!! It time to move forward.
