Well my friends, time for a happy post.
1 Million Canadaians used the food bank in march of this year, food bank use is up a staggering 20% year over year.
According to the bank of Canada....The recession is Over
And the recession is over,investors,bankers, the big boyz have gotten back most of the money they lost when the financial markets crashed, summer in the Hamptons and winter in the Caymans will be back to normal, JP morgan and AIG bonuses have returned, well actually they never left, in fact,JP Morgan has put aside 80 $ billion dollars for bonuses this year, down a small tick from the 2006 bonus total...Now Barack Obama has displayed anger towards these bonuses,or has he?
There are two ways out for the players, half of the companies/banks that got bail-outs to avoid a hassle over bonuses raised salaries by 200 %... and then gave tiny bonuses,JP Morgan and AIG said...Go to hell,we signed agreements and we`re paying bonuses, and my friends they all use that same old argument.
"We have to pay well to attract the best and the brightest"........Everyone is using that line of argument, Gordon Campbell used that same argument to justify his pay raise and the massive pay raise to senior civil servants, including the 104.000.00$ raise to Jessicca Mac Donald bringing her pay package to 348.000.00$ per year plus expenses, Ontario Liberals say..."Look what they are paid in BC" So the Ontario Liberals raise their pay packages, then BC says " Look what they are paid in Ontario,we have to keep up or everyone of our best and brightest will leave"....HA HA....What a sick joke.
The best and the brightest that led Ontario to a 24 Billion dollar deficit and BC to a 5 $ billion dollar deficit and the bureaucrats in BC never even saw the deficit coming,well,according to Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen nobody knew the deficit was coming,I guess we didn`t pay the best and the brightest enough money to buy new GLASSES! And, this "thing" this comparator game only works with politicians,it doesn`t work for regular workers or minimum wage..
Because as you know,our BC Paramedics are the lowest paid in Canada, BC minimum wage is the lowest in Canada, and quality results aren`t a factor in determining wages, here we are paying the CEO of BC Rail over half a million$ per year to run a short spur line with no rail cars, WOW,imagine what we would have to pay if they actually had trains! And then there is our 1 million $ dollar man,David Hahn....Who cares if the CEO of the Washington state ferries makes less than 200.000.00$ per year......David Hahn...Under his management BC ferries made a whopping 9 million dollars,after 150 $ million in taxpayer subsudies, I wonder what Ontario`s CEO of ferries makes..HA HA. Yes of course I`m being silly, David Hahn must be worth that kind of money, after all David Hahn has the ability to hypnotize Christy Clark and make her say anything,including Christy Clark saying BC Ferries made 500 $ million dollars in PROFIT, too bad it`s not true, every year the subsidy to BC Ferries goes up and any dribble of profit goes down....What is the going wage rate for radio talk show host hypnotist?
A jobless recovery,wages are falling,pensions are being gutted and meanwhile we keep importing toxic goods from China,goods made by slave labour, and Stephen Harper and Barack Obama because China is willing to buy up debt(Lend us money) both leaders are prepared to look the other way with human rights, dangerous goods,slave labour, environmental degradation, both leaders are willing to sell out future generations for a temporary fix...Yes indeed my friends, Thomas freidman was wrong ,the world isn`t flat,the world is round,covered in mountains and obstacles, there is no such thing as free trade, Ed Deak up at big Lake knows what he is talking about, giving away resources is a false economy.
Can you imagine,more than a million Canadians using food banks, and....The Recession is Over.(Read about the spike in food bank usage here) http://www.theprovince.com/life/Canadians+turning+food+banks+record+numbers+2232484/story.html
So what am I talking about, I mentioned that this was a happy post,here`s the deal folks, we don`t live in China, we won`t be put down,we won`t be held down, Gordon Campbell,Stephen Harper, how much food do you have? What`s in your freezer? You might have steel shutters and cameras,you might have body guards and pit bulls but they won`t stop a hungry mob, and my friends,when your hungry go to the legislature in Victoria, knock on your BC Liberal MLAs door, ask for food at your local BC Liberal constituency office. Maybe,just maybe if every hungry person, every hungry child walked into Gordon Campbell`s office,his front yard,the legislature and asked for food. This is Canada, not Chinada, not Russanda, not Afcanada, Hunger will end in Canada, even if it means politicians feeding the hungry one at a time.
