I Want Our $100 Billion BACK!

Posted on by 0 comment

This is a rant.  I am very, very upset with you bleeping bleepity-bleep Canadians that voted for Conservatives.

The Conservatives have admitted to rigging the 2006 election and have faced up to penalties related to ‘administrative errors’ related to the In and Out Scandal (admittedly yet to be a scandal because the CTVers and Quebecors make too much money from Conservative advertisements).

Our country is being run by crooks and we’re just sitting back doing nothing.

You bought into the lies of Stephen Harper and his crooked team not once, not twice, but at least three times.

You fell for their pocket-book promises.

You voted for criminals.

You voted for liars.

You voted for thieves.

You voted for bad business managers.

And when your taxes and fees and other costs of living skyrocket because you’re subsidizing tax cuts, jet planes and prisons we don’t need, you will have no one to blame but yourselves.

However, I WANT MY MONEY BACK.  Millions of other Canadians should demand their money back as well.

By my calculations, the Conservatives owe Canada at least $100 billion.

Just the GST cut alone probably cost us that much.

Enough Harper

Harper Harpooned – by Tom Flanagan!!

Posted on by 0 comment

OMG!!  Hell HAS frozen over.

I’m watching this today and I’m stunned to hear Tom Flanagan, Stephen Harper’s mentor, is busy Harpooning his minion on Evan Solomon’s ‘Power Panel’.

In fact, I’m delighted to see that Stephen Harper’s bullshit factory is finally crashing and burning, with key personnel jumping ship, including Flanagan.  By describing the failure of democracy in Canada as ‘games’, and by being fixated on the economy and distracting Canadians from the criminal possibilities being posed by the Afghan detainee situation, Harper is finally the guy who blinked.

Joined by Tony Clement as describing Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament Facebook members as elitists (I’m glad to hear that I’m a member of the elite), we’ve definitely entered an age of ‘bizarro-world’ where the Cons are proving that every time they open their mouths they prove the adage that ‘better to remain silent than the open your mouth and remove all doubt’.  Yes, Tony Clement has proven that’s he’s incapable of holding office, along with his boss.

Meanwhile, Stooge Number 3 is busy announcing that he doesn’t care if Parliament’s out.  He’ll start slashing and burning anyways.

Talk about a massive SNAFU.

It’s time to throw them out!!

The only problem:  Iggy has already conceded and Layton is nowhere to be seen .

What the f**k is wrong with these people?

Harpooned: Canadian Taxpayers

Posted on by 1 comment

In an interview with the CTV (does he ever talk with the CBC?), Stephen Harper has indicated that he will not rule out a carbon tax, simply because he’d be more than happy to drop his pants for the US (again).  This is a complete 180 from his original position that destroyed the Dion Liberals in the 2008.

Brilliant.  Sycophantic slippery Steve has lied to us again.

In fact, we’re all about to be ‘Harpooned’, much like Baby Boomers and other savers were Harpooned when the Conservatives killed the value of Income Trusts back in 2006.

We’re all going to eat the cost of carbon capture and carbon sequestration all so that the companies in Alberta can continue to belch out unprecedented volumes of crap.

Yay!  I can’t wait until the next election.  Please Santa.  Please bring me an election for Christmas 🙂
