In case you haven`t noticed, we are being told by the pro-olympic lobby that regardless of how we feel now that we WILL LOVE THE GAMES, and, anyone who feels differently is off kilter.
Let me first say, I am a huge sports fan and I will be watching many of the events on T.V. but...
CTV....Global....And especially the NAUSEATING olympic pandering on cknw, I was up early today and apparently today is the 30 day away mark from the start of the spectacle, well, starting with Phillip Till, non-stop olympic talk, next is Bill(Boring) Good,.....Where is my throw-up bucket? The non-stop olympic push from Bill Good is pathetic, all olympics all day,all callers getting through are pro-olympic boosters, obviously the calls are being screened,what else is new, even Gary Mason is in the olympic push, Mason said, It`s common place for Olympic host cities a month before the games that the people feel a little blue,but, he and other (Pre-Arranged callers) said, at Salt lake city, at Torino, at Sydney, the people in the last month before the games suddenly changed their feelings and embraced the games and got swept up in emotion,in self pride and on and on.......Am I starting to blush.
No siree Bob, this is the Straight Goods, lets start with a few of the hundreds of lies....The Athletes village, nothing but a scam from start to finish, Vancouverites will be paying increased municipal taxes for decades to pay off that boondoggle, olympic security, Colin Hansen lied about the cost of the security for years, Colin Hansen Claimed the cost would be 170 million, now it`s over 1 $billion dollars, OK, we are realists in BC, everyone knew that there would be costs over-runs and traffic hassles but.....
There is a huge difference between our BC olympic games and other host cities game`s,those cities weren`t betrayed and stabbed in the back in the back in the lead up to the games, and that difference lays at the feet of the compulsive liar Gordon Campbell.
We had a election in May/2009, roughly 6 months before the games and....."Our BC election was a fraudulent con" Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen lied their faces off during the election, they lied about our deficit, Campbell claimed the deficit would be 495 $million dollars but the deficit turned into a 4 $billion dollar deficit 800% higher than Gordon(compulsive LIAR) Campbell said it was going to be, and, Campbell the liar campaigned on no HST tax and he lied, Gordon Campbell knew he was going to ram it down our throats right after the election,and, Gordon the liar campaigned saying there would be no cuts to Health or education, he lied again and again and Gordon Campbell cancelled programs for the disabled,for the autistic, for special olympics,for students, Campbell has stuck his hands in the pockets of seniors in care homes, cancelled over ten thousand surgeries, cancelled MRIs, Campbell has cut re-training money for the un-employed, illegally cut gaming monies to charities,to sports and arts groups, on and on and on, Gordon Campbell has gored everybody`s ox except his rich corporate friends.
So, like I was saying, myself I would have been angry with the Gordon Campbell liberals winning the last election no matter what, but I have a sour taste in my mouth, I feel that I have been de-frauded, swindled, I feel dirty, the scale and depth of the fraud in our last BC election is beyond compare, I am in my 40s and my dad is in his 80s(And he is sharp as a tack and crushes me everyday when we watch jeopardy) ...... nor I or my dad have ever seen the scale of deception,lies and outright criminal actions as what Gordon Campbell did during the election, there was no ministry,no cabinet minister,no BC Liberal MLA who didn`t lie during our last BC election!
So excuse me for not embracing the games, I will watch the events on T.V., I hope we don`t lose too much money on these games, I hope everyone enjoys watching the sports but, this isn`t Salt Lake city or Torino or Calgary, no, Gordon Campbell stabbed British Columbians in the back, and I suspect that I`m not alone with a sour taste in their mouth, regardless of whether the games are a success I will not forgive Gordon Campbell or any BCLiberal, and for any sitting government to think that they will get any kind of bounce in the polls over a sporting event when they lied,deceived,conned,de-frauded, taxed,cut, and ultimately killed the weakest among us is foolhardy.
Here this loud and clear Gordon Campbell and all the rest of you BC Liberals, you will all pay a heavy political price for your criminal election fraud you perpetrated on British Columbians!
