Hey, the Royals are here, what Vancouver Riot?


How does it feel, how does it feel to be Canadian, how happy with Harper are you, I wrote just after the Conservative victory about heading into the long dark tunnel, I don`t have much to say on the matter, I`ll leave that to you, but I would like to highlight a few items of interest....


What strikes me the most is how easily Harper disrespects the office of the Prime minister, after the election 2 failed candidates were given lifetime Senate appointments,.... It was discovered $50 million was literally stolen and placed with no paper trail into Tony Clements riding,......Harper interfered with the private company Air Canada, an assault on future generations, on future workers, Harper locked out the postal workers and forced a lesser contract down their throats, a contract inferior than the last offer from Canada post management....Have you had enough yet....Then we had Harper appointing a disgraced BC Premier who is embroiled in adultery, scandals, a man who resigned as the most hated politician in Canadian history...Harper gifts Campbell a posh London residence, a chef, a driver, $200,000.00 per year plus an expense account......And just in time for the arrival of the Royals, while all the media and headlines are focused on a couple of youngsters a Mr. Stephen Harper gave away all of Canada`s nuclear assets, ...That`s right folks he gave it away to one of the BC Liberals favorite companies ...SNC Lavalin!....

So now all our nuclear assets are gone, medical isotopes will be controlled by a private company, we are in trouble people, big trouble, look at Greece, Portugal, look what`s going on in the United Kingdom, in Wisconsin, Indiana, in Canada, assaults on teachers, janitors, health care workers, the big media said nothing about $trillions of dollars to save banks, investment companies and mortgage brokers, there was no media outrage in bailing out the Wall Street criminals and now there is almost unanimous agreement among big media to play up the austerity measures/cutting wages, cutting pensions, raising taxes and reneging on every promise Government made as a good and needed measures, there is no big media doing any critical economic reporting from the side of the people!....

What we have is corporate controlled media`s public presentation and bias following lockstep with the Governments position, why, is it advertising, for the sake of public tax dollars funneled into media`s mitts we get skewed news, bias reporting, one-sided facts, look at Iceland, back when the banks were all getting bailed out, the Icelandic banks were in trouble, they demanded $billions and $billions in bail out money or....The Icelandic banks claimed without all the bail out money things will get worse, much worse, ....Well, in Iceland they held a referendum, they let the people decide if the big banks were to be bailed out...The people voted, the people said a LOUD no and guess what..

Iceland is doing just fine thank you, the people, the brave frontier people of Iceland said no!...We will not pay off the private bank`s gambling debt, and they didn`t, this story too has been swept under the media publication ban rug.

Which brings me to the point of this post, the Greece experiment, what we are witnessing is a continuation of the banking bail outs, this has nothing to do with workers, Greece, a cesspool of Government corruption, Greece who only a few short years ago were celebrating the summer Olympics,  $billions vanished, tourism faltered, their Vat tax was raised and raised and the more they raised their HST/VAT tax the more of the economy went underground, the Greek officials lined their pockets and increased their pensions with impunity....Here in BC it`s the same thing, how is it Obama`s chief of staff makes $197k per year while we have guys like David Hahn making over $1 million dollars and our own Craig James/flunky making more than Obama`s chief of staff!, these politicians and hired mouth pieces don`t live in the real world, deciding whether to fill up the gas tank or eat...Enough is enough..

Greece is being forced by the money lenders to sell all public assets and privatize everything, basically Greece will be run by the corporation, pensions plans will be sold next, they will all default and every Greek Government promise to the public will be reneged upon, Iceland refused the lenders, the Greek Government caved and what you are witnessing is a prelude to the future, a future where CEO`s and shareholders run the world, a  Gordon Campbell included Bilderberg society, Greece will never pay their debt, youth unemployment is at 40%...Their VAT tax is over 20%..23% on food, teachers have  not had a raise in a decade, average wage  for a senior teacher is $800 Ueros per month, ....New user fees are being imposed, services cut and workers have to work longer before retiring, thus adding to the unemployment numbers......GDP will continue to fall, leading to more unemployment, more underground economy resulting in taxes having to be raised again and ultimately leading to Greece`s bankruptcy.....There is no other route this will go, the people of Greece, the lowly workers are lab rats in an experiment, pain, poverty and a mental attack on their very souls, the future being taken away from Greece, a corporate country run by shareholders and banks where the human factor is altered and transformed into a corporate cog.....Huge companies can go bankrupt and re-emerge as a new entity, they can claim bankruptcy and start anew, giant company after giant company can go bankrupt and leave $billions in poison and clean up costs, pump and dump promoters can bilk $millions and when caught pay a fine, .....Greece will go bankrupt anyway, and when they emerge there will be no more Greece, the assets, the public service, the bridges, the water, the air, the streets, everything within the borders of Greece will be owned by the money lenders, including the Blood. of Freedom Fighters!

That is the prettiest little orange face, I have ever seen.

I read, Harper gives a speech in New York, at the Council of Foreign Relations. This was back in Sept 25, 2007. Harper fully endorsed the N.A.U. This has been Campbell and Harper's evil agenda all along.

It doesn't matter, Campbell is a criminal. What did it matter, when Campbell thieved the BCR and sold it? What did it matter, when Campbell thieved and sold our rivers. What has it mattered, when any of the politicians evil deeds are exposed? The lying, the thieving, the corruption, cheating to win? Nothing has been done about any of this.

Harper is thieving from the people, to give us away to the giant corporations, he and Campbell are working for.

Our civil Rights and Liberties, have been taken away from us. Democracy and Freedom, is pretty much gone. We are forced into situations, as Canadian citizens, we know that are bad for the people. Do they listen to us? Hell no, they do it anyway. Campbell, Hansen and Harper, forced the HST on us, even when we knew it would kill the province and the people.

Follow the money. We don't own our oil and gas wells, nor our many mines, not the timber. We won't even own our water. The huge wealthy company's own all.

Harper was the true monster, we should have been watching out for. The first time I and my son laid eyes on Harper, he gave us the willies. Harper a christian? Nor on your Nelly, he's pure evil. Campbell was rewarded for the dirty work he did for Harper, by a position of ambassador to England. England knows Campbell is not clean, that he is a criminal. In the right, clean world, England would never have accepted Campbell. If old Churchill was still P.M. he would throw Campbell out on his ear. Churchill would have thought Harper, along the same lines as he did of, Uncle Joe Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini. He would called our politicians of to-day, Nazi gangsters.



The everyday citizens in this country just don't count, unless you fit into the wealthy groove.

Here's a link to Tom Fletcher's recent column:

http://www.bclocalnews.com/okanagan_similkameen/vernonmorningstar/opinion/124724838.html

He says that, according to Christy Clark, Gordon Campbell's appointment as High Commissioner is about Campbell helping to negotiate a free trade deal with the EU. Which is called CETA, I believe.

Here's info about CETA:

Hi Grant,

What you see in Greece I call it pirate capitalism and its spreading world wide, including here,it also is in the cancer stage,just like cancer cemo is not going to cure it neither are bailouts.

The cure is to let it eat it self up , like another great depression and
thousands of good and decent people will be thrown under the bus,there is another way and thats revolution or a political person with a large set of gonads who will take on the special interest.

The picture brings back good memories .

I think we all should chip in a loonie and hire an assassin to get rid of the sons of bitches and then maybe the next set of wannabees will get the message.

The HA could easily do the job in BC and the Rock Machine in PQ will look after the federal business.

Thanks Mr. E....

As for the bright orange glow that emanates from me..

It`s not me at all, it`s the spirit of thousands of Straight Good`s contributors shining through.

This blog is powered by you, even those whom I disagree with.

Thank you all for knitting this communal tapestry.

Good Day

@9:19pm...I had misgivings about allowing you contribution. for I too believe that blood will be spilled, eventually...

However, the power today is in knowledge, ....If someone assassinated a politician the press would put the victim on a pedestal..

The power is in our hands, ballots and referendums.

Failing that...

Sharpen the pitchforks.

We have controlled media alright.

This little group picture says it all.

Re: the Vancouver riot

If you wish to see something really disgusting/bizarre, check out this YouTube video of Christie Clark in front of The Bay in high heels and with a broom the day after the Vancouver riot using the rape of our city as a wonderful opportunity for a political publicity stunt and photo-op.

Notice that she's sweeping nothing into the dustpan because the street was already cleaned up before she got there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqWLGJL_2y8

What an unembarrassable asshole she is.

The video is a real riot to look at though.

In Greece the risk associated with lending money has been transferred from the Banks to the people. European Banks lent money to Greece and then purchased Credit Default Swaps (insurance) on their lent money, from the big US financial institutions. The problem is that the US sellers of CDS to the European Banks don't have money to pay for the insurance claims. They are financial deadbeats who collected the fees for their insurance policy, but did not maintain an asset pool to make good on claims, such as the potential claim from Europe's banks, if Greece defaults. This is why Greece can not default, and the people will experience a severe drop in living standards. Of course the mainstream press will continue to blame the Greek people as being lazy and sucking from an over generous government teat, however the people were sold out by their own government who took on this extra debt.
Now the banks, governments and mainstream press, expect us to believe that by giving Greece more bailout money (debt), we can solve a problem of too much debt. It's all spin and outright lies, just as practiced here in BC by our media and government.

Love the puddy cat faces, not too sure about the face at the bottom of the post though, can't see his eyes.

Something else going on, is really scary. Scientists have found acid in the ocean, right up to BC's shores. They thought the acid, was way out in the deeps. The acid is eating away, the shells of the crustaceans. The oceans have absorbed all the pollution, they can take. They are saying, our oceans are dying. They say, we have to reduce burning fossil fuels 80% by 2020, not 2050, as they thought before finding the acid, close to shores.

Harper and Campbell are going to force the Enbridge pipeline and the dirty oil tankers from the U.S. and China, onto the BC people and our province. Harper and Campbell are supporting, the dirtiest energy on the planet, the Alberta dirty tar sands. This is where, there may be some, serious civil disobedience.


Scientists say, once the balance is tipped, it will be down hill all the way. The oceans are at that tipping point. As well as the seas absorbing all of the carbon dioxide, there are always oil spills as well. There are small spills, we don't even hear about.

The eco damage from the tar sands, is much worse than they originally thought as well.

Fracking makes fissures and causing the gas to leak into the clean underground water. In one of the States, they say fracking, is causing earthquakes.

Toxic mine waste, also leaches into, rivers, streams and underground water. Rafe Mair of Common Sense Canadians says, Campbell's theft and sale of our rivers, has caused severe eco damage. I saw the photo's of, the run of the rivers damage.

All of these atrocities on this planet, are for pure greed. There is technology for renewable energy, wind, solar, and thermal energy. We will be forced at some time, to these renewable energies. They had better get started on them right now, before this entire planet dies.

I was upset with the First Nations people. Three bands at Campbell River signed, to allow fish farms. What a let down.

Grant,

Great post, great picture, thanks again...

We need to to mail this post out to all our mailing lists...sad if the general population ever gets it it is too late.

Also look forward to more 'weather changes', no honest news, criminal governments/corporates control of the internet rendering it useless to the people and the truth, only found in blogs, housing crashes, market crashes, corporate greed, rigged referendum, rigged elections.

Campbell said he will do whatever it takes to make sure there is never another NDP (or any other government) in B.C.

Harper said when he is finished with Canada we won't recognize it.

IMO Middle East created by U.S. government, then broken promises and endless civil wars and deaths.

HA and BCL's,IMO, are one and the same. The raid of our legislature buildings in 2003 because organized crime had infiltrated this government was no mistake.

Grant G. said that knowledge is power(a paraphrase). For that reason there is an assault on teachers and education because an educated person will be able to think for themself. If you can think for yourself, you will have the ability to speak out and vote out these and all other criminals.

Alise Mills is a LIAR, as is Christy Clark, Mary Polak is nothing but an overpaid Molly Maid..No Brain war going on among those three..

Someone please tell me why David Hahn deserves a $315,000.00 pension after getting a million a year!
Let's put this into perspective. The most important individual on the planet earns $400,000.00 per year as the president. How could this individual who runs a couple of ferries deserve that much more.(And still has massive debts!) Are you angry yet? Angry enough to fire all the crooks? Kill the HST? Do what I do. Buy across the 49th. Gas is approaching 50 cents a litre less down there and it's Canadian gas!
And some think that the NDP were useless. Unbelievable!

Hi Grant,

Came across your blog researching P3's and I want to say thanks for your work and being so committed.

I was wanting to forward a bit of a contribution to your work. I'm afraid it's not a lot but I want to encourage you to keep at it.

I didn't see anything on your blog for a donation. Do you take Paypal?

Cheers,
Rob

Maybe Grant you could look into who the directors were that gave the pension bonanza to Hahn.
