A Contradiction And A Cautionary Tale

On the one hand we have the Blogging Tories pleading with the government to give women money to stay out of the workforce, while at the same time the Tory government is pleading with boomers not to retire because our economy will collapse without skilled workers. It the government gives in to the demands of its base, I can see the following scenario being played out across the land.

Little Johnny wants to visit his Grandma and Grandpa. He loves them very much. Now that the government of Stephen Harper has allowed one of his parents to stay home with him, he has plenty of time on his hands. But wait, he can't visit his grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa are busy working due to that dang old labour shortage. No "Golden Years" for them. Johnny misses the guiding hand that grandparents give a young lad and this will screw him up terribly in later life. Poor little Johnny. Why do the Tories hate children so much?
