Vancouver Sun, Operation Goebbels Like Mis-Information

Here we go again folks, day in and day out we have been harping about how corrupt the habitual liars Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen are, and that`s true, but as stated by many of our faithful contributors our biggest enemy is the corporate media, in paticular, Canwest Global and the Vancouver Sun, our 21st century Goebbels propaganda......And it`s true, I am calling on you....The faithful to email, phone, write letters to Canwest demanding them to stop their promotion of Gordon Campbell and his atrocious social and ruinous economic policies..

We must boycott their advertisers, when perusing the bird drop catching rags of Canwest, activate your ad blockers, never ever click one of their ads, refuse to buy any Canwest paper, if BC`s flagship paper is prepared to treat 90% of the populous and electorate like idiots well.....

I have been reading many comments under HST stories in various rags both local and National, by far, 90% of the comments are against the HST, rightfully so and what few comments there are defending the HST use the same old tired rhetoric....

"How are we going to pay for health care...Governments need revenue to fund services....It`s a more efficient tax system....Prices will fall.....It will create jobs and investment...etc etc etc "

If the Vancouver Sun and Patricia Graham wants to treat us like stooges well .....I think you need to tell her what we think....Her email is here ( pgraham@vancouversun.com)

The early numbers are out from Stats Canada, prices are skyrocketing in BC and Ontario, all attributed to the HST, the food industry is getting hammered, real estate sales have fallen off a cliff, and the consumers are pulling back, what did you expect when Gordon Campbell gave you the tax payer a $1.9 billion dollar yearly bill.....And it`s not me saying that it`s the real estate companies, the restaurant association and the consumer price index of Stats Canada, and isn`t that interesting that Mantioba, right next door to Ontario prices are down, energy prices are down, inflation is flat but the exact opposite has happened in B.C......Read Stats Canada numbers here.

And it`s not only goods and services but because of Gordon Campbell`s BC Hydro and private for profit IPP power purchase agreements year over year electrical rates are up a staggering 37%.....37%, are you kidding me, the 2 tier hydro rate that no home owner can avoid, and it`s going to get worse with Campbell`s plan for smart meters which will then be charging us a new premium for power.....A premium charge for power when your kids are doing homework, when your watching Goebbel news hour, when your making dinner, what the hell does Campbell expect you to do, laundrey in the middle of the night, have your kids use their electronics at 3:00 am.....This is getting very scary folks, spin, lies, theft, crime, that`s what Gordon Campbell is all about, some real financial experts are ringing the alarm bells about what is happening to BC Hydro and is Canwest Goebbel media reporting it? Not a chance, you can read the shocking numbers here, have your crying towel ready! Your children will be asking you in the future, what was BCHydro?

I wrote Patricia Graham yesterday berating her for the editorial they ran on Sunday, I gave her the link to Stats Canada and told her to start reporting the facts, I reminded her about a few of hundreds of Gordon Campbell lies, "I won`t sell BCRail, I won`t tear up contracts, the HST isn`t on our radar, the 2009 deficit will be $495 million dollars"......etc etc etc......She emailed me back this morning, her response was lame....She said...."Rarely do I encounter a correspondent of such impressive erudition"....That was all Patricia Graham had to say....

The Editorial the Vancouver Sun ran was about the HST, it implied that if Gordon Campbell explains all the benefits of the HST over the next few months and how it`s such a better sytem and how it will benefit all BCers he can turn public opinion around, in other words folks the UN-AUTHORED EDITORIAL the Vancouver Sun ran was calling all of us a bunch of idiots that are too stupid to understand taxation.....What the F are you talking about Patricia Graham, $2 billion dollars per year out of consumers pockets and that is supposed to be good, Jack Mintz with his fraudulent flip flop report on the HST talks about maybe $10 billion in investments by business over 10 years because of the HST and 100,000 new jobs, well friends if you leave things the way they were .......

Let the consumer over 10 years inject $20 billion dollars in the economy ....That would create triple the jobs the HST would, the HST is a fraud, Atlantic Canada who have had the HST since 1996 is the basket case of Canada, there is no Atlantic boom, the HST is nothing but Gordon Campbell selling out the little guy for his Corporate backers, anyway, this editorial goes on to say that things will be worse without the HST, and wait for it........

Oh my, the humanity, B.C. will have to pay back the $1.6 billion dollar bribe from Ottawa and the tragedy, the cuts that will happen in health and education .....Oh my goodness, well folks, we gave you the answer to that question a few days ago, the money is at ICBC just waiting to be plucked, and of course we here at the Straight Goods predicted the exact spin that was about to occur, spin about cuts, loss of services, spin about prices would have gone up more without the HST.....you Can read the unauthored Pathetic Goebbels propaganda editorial here

The Vancouver Sun doesn`t even have the guts to put a name to the propaganda!

I implore all of the faithful to email ....... pgraham@vancouversun.com and let her know exactly what you think of their garbage.....

If the Vancouver Sun wants to treat us as idiots and stooges then it`s time for us to treat them as enemies of the people, boycott all their advertisers, never buy a Canwest paper, use ad blockers, never click their ads, and if we the people have to drive the economy into the ground to get our way so be it.....

LET the REVOLUTION BEGIN!

You've hit the nail right on. I quit buying Canwest products, I try and avoid Global, BCTV, I've cut back on pretty well everything I can. On vacation, I plan on leaving the province to spend what money I have left after paying hydro, gas etc.

That's what happens when Gordo the "Gargler" uses the govmint credit card to pay for all the drinks for his Canwest buddies at the Vancouver Club.

These Canwest scribes then go back to the office and gratuitously write another NICE piece about the Gargler. They just can't "sober up" to reality.

You know Grant, I too am getting bloody sick of the assholes that keep crying about without the (revenue neutral)HST we can't pay for health care, schooling and whole shitload of programs.Are these fools walking around with their heads in dark places. For christ sakes if Campbell hadn't given away our railway, privatized BC Ferries, and butchered the shit out of hydro we would have had all the money we needed to finance these programs. Do they think we are that stupid?

No - but they sure as hell hope we are!

I really think we need to entice as many people as possible to start a boycott against the members of the associations of the six business groups that challenged the petition in court.

Today in a column written by Justine Hunter, available on the Globe & Mail website, she writes: "John Winter has called on Attorney General, Mike DeJong, to render a decision on whether Mr. Vander Zalm's proposal to repeal the tax is legally valid". What is Winter going to do, go through every lawyer in the province until he finds one that agrees with his point of view?

These tools must really want to get their hands on the $1.9 billion the taxpayers are going to have to cough up each year, and it looks as if they will go to any lengths they have to get their way.

They obviously have no respect for the public that helps keep their members in business, so why should the public support them with their ever dwindling budgets? BOYCOTT!!!
