Gordon Campbell, LIAR...... Need Proof? UPDATED june 20
(Updated here, June 20 th...make sure you have a look at this must read from Kootcoot over at the "House of Infamy)
Another very interesting week friends, Gordon Campbell and his minions are getting desperate, the HST story is turning tragic for the B.C. Liberals, every other day a different spin is being put out for public consumption, it doesn`t matter what the Habitual liar Gordon Campbell says, nobody is buying it!
Several months ago the Government made the ridiculous claim that the HST was being directed towards health care, everyone laughed, including Blair Leckstrom, the citizens rejected this idea, earlier this week Christy cluck cluck Clark was doing the headless chicken thing, first she said that 85% of BCers want the HST because only 15% of the population have signed the petition, the next day Cluck Cluck was pecking away at another stupid claim, Cluck cluck said that Vander Zalm and Delaney were afraid to debate the HST with the public, she must be drinking too much koolaid.
Monday Bill Good had on the liar himself, Gordon Campbell, the whole segment flopped, listeners were laughing in the aisles listening to those two fools, Bill Good ramped up the pressure 2 days later with Michael Levy, again the segment flopped, listeners were ready to rip Levy`s head off, and....Levy and Good officially started a new HST angle, and apparently CFAX radio on the island echoed the same spin, these clowns are now saying, "What $1.6 billion in services would you like cut if the HST is cancelled" .....Now that was a joke, a joke on the public, again the spin backfired.......
The cutting ledge on Friday, Good, Baldrey and Palmer, and again folks Baldrey acted like a stooge, Baldrey claimed that we BCers were becoming "initiative crazy"........Baldrey elaborated, he said that down in California the lawmakers can`t raise taxes, they can`t do anything because the initiative process is used, citizens put initiatives on the ballot, the result is everything gets voted down by the public, and Baldrey added .........The same spin about what services should be cut if the $1.6 billion dollar bribe was returned to Ottawa, and he mentioned that California is broke......
Lets clear up the initiative bullshit that Baldrey was spinning, initiatives in California are far easier, one petition sheet, no registering canvassers, a mere 5% in each county or district has to sign to make it succeed, but here in B.C........
We need 85 different petition sheets, canvassers must get registered, canvassers can only collect signatures for their specific petition sheet, by that I mean, as a canvasser myself, many people wanted to sign but were not registered voters in the Sunshine coast riding, the result was I couldn`t collect their signature.......And..
I remember well, at the onset of the HST initiative, Palmer was laughing at us because we only had 400 canvassers registered at the beginning, Baldrey laughed at us, Bill Good laughed at us, all the paid stooges laughed at us and said it couldn`t be done, their not laughing now!
I would like to remind Baldrey of something he said last fall.....
"There have been 16 initiative attempts and everyone has failed, by the time the HST comes around in July/2010 everyone will have forgotten about the HST"
So now Baldrey is fear mongering that BCers have become initiative crazy and Governments of the future will be hamstrung to bring anything in.......Really Baldrey? 1 for 16 on initiatives, they said it can`t be done, 15% of the voters in 85 riding`s, 85 different sheets, registered canvassers, are you still laughing Baldrey?.......The point i`m trying to make is this, they laughed and scoffed at us, Gordon Campbell didn`t even register as a proponent of the HST, the B.C. liberal party deemed it impossible from the get-go.......And now that we blasted through the petition they want to spin about stifling Government, about BCers being "initiative crazy".....Phony spin about cutting health and education to the tune of $1.6 billion.
But what I really wanted to talk about is Gordon the liar Campbell, specifically the low income HST rebates......
Colin Hansen, Gordon Campbell, Michael Levy, and Sam keep claiming that prices are going to come down, well I have indisputable evidence to the contrary......First off, Dalton Mcguinty is on the record as saying....
"The HST will cost middle class families between $900 dollars and $2000 dollars per year"
Dalton McGuinty is also sending every taxpayer in Ontario a cheque before July 1....And Dalton is sending every taxpayer another cheque in December, the cheques go to every tax payer, and those cheques are completely separate from the LOW-INCOME-REBATE cheques that Ontario`s poor will receive.
Here`s the deal for us BCers, no cheque to every taxpayer, and as for the low income people in B.C......Single poor people will receive $230 dollars per year, a family of 4 with a gross income $25 thousand dollars will receive $800 dollars per year.
Lets review that shall we, a family of 4 with TOTAL income $25 thousand dollars per year will receive $800 dollars, let me say this, a family of 4 with that low of income is dirt poor, that is one person working making slightly less than $15 dollars per hour!....In fact a single person living, renting making $15 dollars per hour is dirt poor.
The above 2 paragraphs confirm that Campbell/Hansen/Levy/Good/Sam are all liars, how can Colin Hansen and Campbell claim that prices will fall when a dirt poor family of 4 are being made whole with a rebate of $800 per year? And if that working family member gets a raise to $20 dollars per hour the rebate disappears!
Lets go one step further, Campbell and Hansen by their actions have admitted that the HST will cost middle class families a fortune every year, because.......How much spending power does a family of 4 have with 1 member of the family working for $15 dollars per hour? Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen have by their actions conceded that the HST for that dirt poor family will cost them $800 dollars per year.......
So how much will the HST cost a family in a big home, both parents working, a combined income of $100 thousand per year, that family has spending power, 2 cars, repairs, bingo, golf on the weekends, meals out, etc etc etc....One can extrapolate from the numbers that they will be out $2000 dollars or more every year, and in a Province of million dollar condos, property taxes, carbon taxes, tolls, expensive fuel, expensive education, $100 thousand combined income doesn`t make them rich.
The point I am making is, how on earth can Michael Levy/ Campbell/Hansen make the claim that prices will fall and the tax won`t be noticed when their actions and Dalton McGuinty say different?
Finally folks, the average funeral in Canada is about $10 thousand dollars, the HST will add about $ 700 dollars to the cost of 1 funeral.....When my friend Brian asked Colin Hansen about taxing funerals on the Sean Leslie show last fall.....Colin Hansen answered the question thusly, and I quote....
"When a funeral company buys a new carpet for their funeral hall they will get the PST back that was charged to them on the purchase of the carpet , so they will be able to lower the price of the funeral"snip
Let`s see if I have this right, what does a funeral hall sized carpet cost? They`re not shags, not persian`s, they are not flying carpets, usually the carpets are low maintenance and thin, let`s give it a cost of $20 thousand, that is $1400 dollars in PST.........
So unless they replace their carpet every 2 funerals, because 2 funerals would be equivalent to the entirety of the tax on that $20 thousand dollar carpet!
Let me do my own math, an aging population, let`s say the funeral hall is busy, let`s say they do 4 funerals a week, 50 weeks, 50 X 4 = 200 funerals per year, total HST tax paid on those 200 funerals....
$140,000.00 dollars per year in new taxes on those 200 funerals!
And guess what the stooge Vaughn Palmer is up to this Saturday morning, his column today echoes what Bill Good and Michael Levy said,
"what will we cut if we lose the $1.6 billion in transition money from Ottawa"snip
Vaughn goes on and on talking about the dreaded loss of this money, in fact Vaughn Palmer states that if we return the transition money to Ottawa, "the extra $1.6 billion in debt will cost the B.C. treasury $75 million dollars in long term borrowing"
I have but one question for you Vaughn Stooge Palmer..........
What is the long term cost of servicing the B.C. debt, you know, the $50 billion dollar plus B.C. debt, a debt that has more than doubled under Gordon Campbell?
You can read the Vaughn Con here
A real sloppy column by Vaughn, it smells like Kirk Lapoint (editor-in-chief of the Vancouver Sun)gave Vaughn his marching orders, and Vaughn like a good little toady writes a pathetic column not worthy of print, time to pack it in Vaughn, your old, stale, tired, your journalistic ethics are gone, be gone Vaughn, move your desk to Victoria, you`re already writing for the PAB(public affairs bureau)
