Cutting the Gordian Knot
The politicians, the Bill Goods, the investment class, the silver spoonfed elitists, they don`t understand and never will accept the new reality of factual information finding its way to the masses...
I listened to Money Talks this morning, I was expecting a poutfest from Michael Campbell but apparently he has flown to London to conspire with the Gordian nut, with bodyguards in tow.
These BC Liberals, they don`t quit, after every scandal, after every bad story rather than coming clean they launch a new phony spin, for example, yesterday when liver lips Clark was having a press conference rather than show any contrition she tried to turn it into a partisan attack against the NDP, in fact she stated yesterday...
"Adrian Dix was the architect of Glen Clark`s economic plans in the 90s"
Really?...A lowly young member of Glen Clark`s office staff was actually the Premier of BC, who knew!...Also, in Crusty Clark`s press conference when asked about the riding by riding results and the socio-economic class split on the HST she said.
"West Vancouver has always voted for free enterprise parties".....Christy Clark can`t use the name Liberal anymore, infact the BC Liberal party brass has advised all their MLAs to avoid the name BC Liberal at all cost..
Global, CTV, Canwest, Black press, CKNW, Vancouver Sun, the Province, the disgusting Opinion 250, lackeys Baldrey, Palmer, Felcher(Fletcher), Bill Good, Gord MacDonald, Philip Til, Sean Leslie, Chris Galais, you name the name in media and they all with very few exceptions lied and pimped for the BC Liberals and the result....
We didn`t listen, we beat the big media in a slam dunk, $100 million dollars minimum was spent by the elites to save the HST and they never even came close, and that friends has put the fear of God in their minds, we made history, the story went national, it went around the world, our efforts prevailed, you all made me proud, I don`t know how many HST fact stories I wrote, perhaps 30 or more, I and 5000 others canvassed names, no money, a grass roots volunteer movement, no we aren`t Taliban, we aren`t Tea party, we are Canadian, we are proud, we would rather die than bend over for Gordon Campbell or Michael campbell....
What we have in Canada and many other places in the world is a corrupt media, they lie on air, their cousins and wives and family members are employed by the Government all in the name of currying favour, Sean Leslie`s wife works for PAB..Pamela Martin for Christy, Rebbecca Scott, Stephen Smart, Baldrey`s wife works for the Liberals, and there are no less than 2 dozen members of PAB that have direct ties to the family of media, it stinks, the Government put a stop to retailers scamming the lottery games and actually prevent them from playing the games in their own store, shouldn`t the media have the same criteria when covering stories, Government stories, I think so, so does Harvey Oberfeld.
The media failed us, not one big media ever asked these questions about the HST..How come it took the Jim Dinning independent panel that studied the HST to tell us that the HST was not revenue neutral but a $600 million dollar tax grab(not counting the $2 billion dollar yearly tax shift)...Where was the entire Ministry of finance, why do we have a ministry of finance when we need a three person independent panel to reveal facts, not one person in media asked that question and the Jim Dinning panel games are continuing after the HST died...For example, Kevin Falcon has cited the Dinning panel`s number of 18 months to 2 years to untangle the HST, my question to the Fraser institute led editorial board of the Vancouver Sun is this...
Why do we need a minister of finance or ministry when the only one with any answers is Jim Dinning and his two cohorts?
Why indeed, why hasn`t it been mentioned that the bribe money from Ottawa($1.6 billion) was money the Federal Government borrowed from the taxpayer to give us, let me put it this way, put BC`s $1.6 billion dollar bribe onto that tally sheet(The bottom of that sheet) and when Ottawa pays off the $700 billion dollar debt preceding our little tidbit then we will pay off the bribe, for Canada like the USA will never pay off the national debt.
The Gordian Nut, now bear with me, Gordon and Michael Campbell increased BC`s debt by $40 billion dollars in 10 years not counting future obligations, the BC Liberals are running huge deficits, what Government in their right mind while running huge deficits would take $3 billion dollars yearly from taxpayers to give to Big business?
If the province wants to give more tax breaks to the corporate world they can, but they can only do it when they have a surplus, until then hit the bricks!....Natural Gas, several years ago when the gas was trading for about $12 per BTU the BC Government was reaping about $1.7 billion dollars in royalties, natural gas has tanked, the price is well under $4 dollars, the Government take on natural gas after offering royalty relief is about $200 million dollars per year...That market price will come back in time, in the meantime until the price goes up there is no rush to giveaway a finite resource, when it`s gone its gone...
The big business cry babies, the mining outfits are mad, they claim they aren`t competitive without the HST, well, I tell you what, when gold drops to $1000 per ounce and copper falls to under $1 dollar per pound we will give you tax breaks, right now commodity prices are at record highs and if these companies need help now well,....Well what a load of bullshit....The head of Forestry council called the HST defeat "Catastrophic"...He claims business will flee to Ontario for the HST...Really, let`s see, does Ontario have any dirt cheap pine beetle infested trees for sale?..No they don`t, how much money to ship trees from Ontario to BC for further transport to Asia?....It wouldn`t be feasible would it....How about our coal exporters, will they move to Ontario, the trans-Canada shipping costs dwarf any HST savings...Nobody is going anywhere...The movie industry in BC has flourished, they flourished when the Canadian dollar was 65 cents compared to the greenback, we have been at par or near par for years and years, they survived, Ontario 3 years ago trumped our movie tax credits with an even bigger tax credit to the movie industry, they cried and howled that the sky is falling and the BC Liberals caved and matched Ontario`s race to the bottom number, now the HST and the movie boys are hamming it up for more sop....
They shot a movie once, in my home town, everyone was in it, for miles around, including me, it was filmed partially in Garden bay, it was called Vipers, it was about mean old deadly snakes, the movie company paid us extras a whopping $8 dollars per hour, minimum wage, BC`s minimum wage is and has been lower than Ontario`s minimum wage for years, the movie business had that advantage too...Go ahead, leave, take your effing studios and go film in Saskatchewan, or Bangladesh, the movie boys can make oceans and rain forests, majestic mountains and stunning scenery in their studios,....The movie business can cut their own costs, perhaps Johnny Depp and Tom Cruz could appear for $30 million a picture rather than $60 million, have any movie prices dropped anywhere after any of the financial gifts?...Not a chance..
And it all falls back to the corporate scum that caused the current world economic collapse, and the bought and paid for media that reports the propaganda as news!
The Christy Clark jobs agenda, that`s all I hear, well that and families first(the first to get screwed)...Has the media asked any questions about this so-called trade mission to India and China?....Can anyone tell me what we can sell to Asian or Indian people`s?...We don`t make cell phone, we have no manufacturing, we can`t compete with slave labour in the manufacturing of clothes, electronics, housewares, furniture, we don`t make one damn thing that those countries would buy so this trade mission means promoting more destruction of the land, selling more coal, more wood, more farmed fish, there is zero job creation going down that route, existing coal mines either ramp up or down production, is Christy Clark`s job plan to open up 100 new coal mines for producing coal for export, for even if 100 coal mines opened up it would create but a few thousand jobs, and the hypocrisy, carbon tax this you scoundrels, no carbon tax on millions of tonnes of coal but charge your own school boards and hospitals for turning on the hydro powered lights....You can`t make this stuff up....And the failure of the media, well that game is over, for billions of words were foisted on the public from the media in support of the HST and we, we the people and the new real news media online trumped them, and we`re just getting started!
Anyway, I nominate Jim Dinning as new BC Finance minister and if we hire his two panel associates we can eliminate the entire ministry of finance, after all, we don`t need a second ministry of finance echoing Jim Dinning on all matters related to finance.
Politics in BC have changed forever, the BC Liberals are dead, the Baldrey`s and Palmers and Goods are dead to the masses and if Jim Beatty or Stephen Smart want to fill the void of honest journalism they better start now, for if not I and my fellow writers will blow you away..
