Vaughn Palmer and the BC Liberals are Peeing Their Pants Over John Cummins

What a good week and it`s only Monday, Stephen Harper and his harping about a coalition threat that includes the Bloc, a one day story that has backfired on Harper, but after today`s event any thought of a Federal Conservative majority all but ended .....

I`m talking about Harper promising family tax cuts 5 years from now, that is if the budget is balanced, yet his $10 billion dollar per year corporate tax cuts are on, not in 5 years but now!....That was a fatalistic mistake, people are cynical of politicians and their promises at the best of times but this lame empty promise 5 years from now smacks of hypocrisy, can you imagine, by the time this pipe dream comes to fruition people`s children will be married and have their own kids.

And of all places to announce such foolery, Harper announces this in BC..Big mistake, how many lies from Gordon Campbell, how many lies from Christy Clark, I won`t sell BC Rail, I won`t tear up contracts, Gordon Campbell just gave us a tax cut and then took it away before the ink was dry, Harper and Campbell foisted by crook the job killing HST on us BCers and the gall to promise a tax cut in 5 years from now, if the budget is balanced, just what we need, a contest seeing who can promise the most outlandish things far off in the future....I hear Iggy is promising free education for all Canadians when he uncovers 10 trillion pounds of Gold buried under the Parliament building, and Jack Layton is promising unlimited health care and guaranteeing everyone lives to 120 years of age, contingent on getting the patent on the "fountain of youth"....I am of course kidding on those last two promises, the point I am making is Harper has no idea how angry BCers are, how many Campbell promises have been broken, the Golden decade, 5000 more NEW acute care beds, the Surrey memorial hospital has been promised 11 times, Harper and his advisers have done themselves in......Even the lamest of voters know a bold faced lie when they hear it, that coupled with corporate tax cuts retro-active, well....Too bad Harper, you just blew it...

Corporations are sitting on $trillions in cash, in fact corporations haven`t had so much cash in 45 years or more, Corporations have banded together to hoard cash until Obama is gone to guarantee the economy keeps tanking, the third world war is here, corporations against the public, Rio Tinto brought down the last Australian Government over a new super profits mining tax and here is another American company threatening to leave a US state if taxes are raised, threats, money hoarding, let them go, let all those corporate bastards go to China, they can play twiddly winks with Pat Bell...

What prices have been lowered since the HST was jammed down our throat, where are those promised jobs, BC has shed so many damn jobs we are now the unemployment leader of Canada, second only to the Maritimes who have had the HST since 1996, last Saturday there was a 4 hour, 3 hour and 4 hour waits heading south at our BC border crossings, all those Canadians filling up with gas and buying goods and services at a huge savings across  the line, Alberta retail is booming thanks to BC buyers, and I read another interesting story today, the reason it caught my eye is....


I too have been complaining about corporations reducing the sizes of goods we normally buy through guile, the jar, bottle, container looks the same but they hold less product, big corporations are doing this on purpose, rather than raise their price they are reducing what you get and charging you the same old price,

A deliberate attempt to hide food inflation, no wonder I`m losing weight!

But what I really wanted to talk about was John Cummins becoming the Provincial BC Conservative leader, John Cummins has a few redeeming qualities, he`s against the IPP rape of river scam brought in by Gordon Campbell, he`s against the disease carrying farmed fish, he`s very strong on the environment, and John Cummins...

Scrares the CRAP(for Gary E) out the BC Liberals, the dreaded split on the right scenario is coming true, the BC Liberals are already in trouble without the split on the right but with John Cummins speaking to run of river ripoff, wild salmon and environment, also the BC Conservatives are running in all 85 ridings, this my friends has guaranteed the death of Crusty cluck cluck Clark and the hated BC Liberals, it`s all over and now with a Federal election here, Christy can`t call a Provincial election, after the Federal election we have the HST referendum vote, Crusty won`t want to call an election around that and in the meantime the BC Conservative party will be growing in strength and quality candidates, Crusty had the rug pulled out from her, for without a Federal election she would have called a snap election while her blossom still bloomed, now the Rose is gone and the skunk cabbage has shown it`s face, it`s a lose lose for the BC Liberals....And I love it!....

So even before John Cummins announces his intentions tomorrow at a scheduled press conference the number 2 BC Liberal stooge has come to try and muddy Cummins up, that`s right folks, Vaughn Palmer came out with another one of his classic back handed smear jobs, you can expect Balderdash to follow suit on his next drivel column and I expect this Friday on the Dull edge of the ledge that Cummins will be dragged through some more mud....You can literally read the BC Liberal fear in Vaughn`s column, you can see the pages shaking as Vaughn wrote them, Vaughn Palmer is painting Cummins as a HST supporter, he may well be but that argument won`t fly, Cummins will advocate for a made in BC tax system not the Federal version of the HST, like Quebec, they have an HST but they call all the shots, they have tax sovereignty, they set their own rate, Quebec never sold out, I heard John Cummins say those things when he had a dust up with Christy cluck Clark on her radio show,( the audio vault no longer goes back any further than one month)...But that didn`t stop Vaughn Palmer in trying to put altered words in John Cummins mouth...

I can read Palmer, woodless Good and Balderdash like a book, their amateur hacks, their liars, stooges, BC Liberal paid pimps, the BC Liberals are running scared, everything timing wise has gone awry for Cluck cluck, a Federal Election, then the HST referendum and not to mention Jane Thorthwaite in court on April12/2011...And Kash Heed waiting for the BC supreme court to shoot him down...And then there is that matter of...

Christy Clark has no mandate, our economy is tanking, radiation is landing on our Province and say what you will it definitely hamper tourists from coming here, especially with those reactors all but exploding, they will have to be buried in concrete but that will take time, the international atomic agency will continue to downplay the threat, never the less the reactors are finished and tradewinds will bring the radiation here, thus further harming our beleaguered tourist industry, more job losses, bigger deficit, BCFerries and Hahn, sluggish movie industry and another world recession taking place, good luck with that......New Sensation!

John Horgan Continues to Rail Against the BC Liberals Treasonous Energy Sellout


HORGAN CALLS ON COLEMAN TO EXPLAIN HYDRO RATE REVIEW

(The latest campaign release from the Horgan Express)



March 28, 2011
VICTORIA—NDP leadership candidate and Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan today called on Energy Minister Rich Coleman to provide the public with details of his plans to review proposed rate increases at BC Hydro. Horgan made the call after BC Hydro adjourned a recent rate increase application hearing at the BC Utilities Commission Friday just as it was about to begin.
“British Columbians can take some comfort that government has finally realized that increasing residential electricity rates by 50% will have a devastating impact on BC families,” said Horgan. “But throwing BC Hydro and the BCUC into chaos, maintaining cabinet secrecy, and making up energy policy on the back of a napkin is no way to develop a sound path for guiding our most important Crown Corporation.”
On Friday, BC Hydro informed the BC Utilities Commission that it must reconsider plans to increase electricity rates because government had initiated some form of ministerial review. BC Hydro told the hearing that it did not know the timing of the ministerial review, by what mechanism government and/or B.C. Hydro will affect the outcome of that review in an amended application, or how the public will have input into the process.
“When the House last sat ten months ago, the BC Liberals passed energy legislation without any meaningful debate,” said Horgan. “Now the latest Energy Minister, the fourth in nine months, is making energy policy on the fly. Perpetual chaos is not the way to build a province."
In February, Horgan released his energy policy that included:
  • Placing a moratorium on new run-of-river power projects,
  • Implementing an energy plan that puts conservation, environmental protection, and the interests of all British Columbians first,
  • Reviewing all existing power purchase agreements to ensure they are in the public interest and take action to correct deficiencies,
  • Restoring the BC Utilities Commission to its role providing independent review and oversight of all private power projects and billions of dollars in other capital spending exempted by the BC Liberals’ energy plan
________________________________________________________________________________________________

Of all the NDP candidates John Horgan is by far the best communicator and debater, maybe for a change the NDP will choose a candidate who knows how to speak, ...Adrian Dix uses the word "Right" in every sentence, just like Sean Holman, it`s absolutely nauseating hearing Holman and Dix using the word "right" after every sentence  and Farnworth is the man of umm and eer, Farnworth is a good man but he really needs to go to a public speaking class and learn to talk without umm and eer.

Without the ability to light up a crowd with speech and words....Horgan has that ability.

I am not trying to be nasty, I speak from my heart, I know what I hear and how candidates sound....

John Horgan, not only is he the best speaker, best debater, most qualified ....But  most importantly John Horgan is scandal free, if Adrian Dix gets the nod the election is over, ...I personally think Dix is a good man and would do a good job but with his bulk membership and sacks of cash coupled with his moral breakdown under Glen Clark when he falsified and back dated a memo is just too much to overcome....

This election, we must as New Democrats come together and put forth the best candidate, we can`t supply the BC Liberals and their media minions any ammo....

Global News has the video archives of Jas Johal chasing down a running away Mike Farnworth on standby ready to flood the airwaves, in fact I wrote about it a few months ago, when Global was celebrating their 50 anniversary...

They ran some clips of what THEY called news highlights of the last 50 years.....It was a Friday morning....The clips in order were..

Clip 1) Jas Johal chasing Mike Farnworth  asking him about Bingogate.

Clip2) Clifford Olsen getting arrested.

Clip3) Harvey Oberfeld going after Bill Vanderzalm.

Clip4) Bountiful scenes with Blackmore.

Clip5) Clip 5 believe it or not, Global News ran the Jas Johal tape again of Jas chasing down Farnworth.

Think about that series of clips Steve Darling and Global news ran that morning ....They attack Vanderzalm, and they place Farnworth between the Bountiful polygamists and Clifford Olsen...

Global news at the bequest of Gordon Campbell was trying to harm the Zalm because of the HST petition and trying to link the NDP with every disgusting criminal in the Province, there was no clip of Gordo`s drunk driving apology, no clip of the BC legislature raid, no clip of the thousands storming the legislature grounds in the response to Gordon Campbell lying and tearing up contracts, none of those stories can compare to Jas Johal asking Farnworth about Bingogate!

And that folks was before the NDP leadership race had even started, Global news has no dirt on John Horgan.

I was so offended by Steve Darling and Global news for such shoddy partisan bullcrap, think about it, Jas Johal asking Farnworth about Bingogate as a highlight!...Oh the humanity, right up there with Carole James making wimpy gutless stooge reporters upchucking on a bumpy airplane ride....I was so offended I wrote a post about it that day

Life is such that the past does come back to haunt, it`s unfortunate that Dix and to a lesser extent Farnworth fall into that category, we don`t get do-overs and politics is a blood sport.

    BC Liberal Clean Energy Act, Designed to Clean Out Your Wallet!

    This letter was sent sent to me from Rafe Mair folks, this letter in simple terms describes exactly what the treasonous Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberals(all) have done too British Columbians. Perhaps Christy Clark can ask her boss Patrick Kinsella to explain how we benefit from getting ripped off by General Electric and Plutonic power?

    Who's fool are you?  BC power fraud
     Karen Gibson

    Courtenay, BC

     Dear Editor,

     A fantastic letter written by Terry Burt of Comox on BC power (March 25).  I for one will not be amused the next time I'm bent over to plug in my vacuum cleaner thinking of the position that the BC government has adroitly manoeuvred us into.  People need to inform themselves otherwise you won't have a right to complain when this compromising position becomes uncomfortable.



    People in the Comox Valley should be cringing at the thought of paying more for electricity.   BC Hydro produces some of the cheapest clean energy in the world.  However, this cheap clean energy is now being put at grave risk by Independent Power Producers. 



    How is this possible? The answer is simple, the finger points to the Clean Energy Act.  The Clean Energy Act mandates that BC Hydro be committed to long term inflation adjusted contracts that are currently paying Run of River power producers premiums of 300% or more than the Pacific Northwest wholesale market price for mid-winter, the time of maximum electricity demand.  However, unfortunately most of the power from Run of River IPP's comes during the spring run-off when BC Hydro has a massive surplus of generating capacity.  This adds insult to injury!  Why are we paying a 300% premium for power we don't need?  



    Your next thought might be "let's sell the power".  Noble and fiscally prudent idea, however, the continental US our biggest trading partner has a mind boggling amount of new wind power that has created a supply glut on the market. Now, our power that BC Hydro is purchasing for  the extravagant sum of approx. $100/MWh from private power producers is  worth a mere fraction of that on the open market.  To make matters worse we are contracted to pay that inflation adjusted $100/MWh for the next 30 to 40 years.  Current market forecasts predict that wholesale electricity prices won't exceed $80/MWh for the next 20 years.   We now face the near term prospect of paying considerably more for our hydro than the power will be worth 20 years from now!



    You might say this makes no economic sense!  I whole heartedly agree as does Marjorie Griffin, a Political Science Professor at Simon Fraser University and former BC Hydro Board Member.  She was recently quoted to say that Independent Power Producing contracts "make no sense...they are sometimes as much as 30 times what BC Hydro can sell the power for.  BC Hydro isn't at fault.  BC Hydro would never have chosen to do this because it makes no economic sense."  It is important for all BC citizens to understand that they are currently BC Hydro shareholders, customers and guarantors of all debts to the corporation.  



    As shareholders of BC Hydro we need to demand that the noose of the ill-conceived Clean Energy Act be cut from around our necks and scrapped.  The BC Utilities Commission must be reinstated with its full authority to arbitrate on behalf of the ratepayers against future legislation of this type.  Our new Energy Minister Mr. Coleman and Premier Clark would be well advised to attend a course at SFU under the tutelage of Ms Griffin to learn how to calculate "economic sense", a concept that eluded the Campbell government.

    How Many More Lies From the Bullshitter Craig James Do We Have to Endure?

    You know friends I just can`t believe how many lies the BC Liberals have told, our attorney generals are liars, every BC Liberal is liar, crooks and thieves, we will talk about them a little later for now I want to discuss the bold faced lies spewed out of Craig James`s mouth, you remember him, the Gordon Campbell appointed flunkee to Elections BC....

    What am I talking about, I`m talking about how Craig James is on the record(before the Federal election writ was dropped) as saying...

    With BC having fixed election dates it`s virtually impossible  for Election`s BC to prepare for an election without 6 months notice....snip

    The Federal Government theoretically  has fixed election dates too....The Federal voting and Provincial voting takes place in the same damn voting booths!

    Bill Good, Balderdash and Vaughn the Pawn Palmer and all the CKNW radio voices have repeated Craig James`s lies!

    We were told about the enormous amount of work and preparation required to hold an election and that BC can no longer just call an election and be ready in a month, these lies were all spawned by the successful anti-hst petition that 720,000 BCers signed....Craig James claimed there was no way we would be able to hold a referendum vote without 6 months notice and now.....

    And now the Federal writ has been dropped and we will be heading to the polls on May/2/2011, a mere 5 weeks from now, so perhaps some young investigative journalist might ask Craig James where his Federal counterparts  found the power of a immortal God to pull off this amazing feat of holding a Province wide election with a mere 5 weeks notice, I would suggest that an old investigative journalist could ask Craig James that question but they don`t exist in BC, the Balderdash`s and Palmer`s and Sean Leslie`s of BC won`t investigate anything let alone ask any biting questions.

    Which brings me the June 24th mail out ballot on the HST referendum vote, how is it that we have to wait until June/24th/2011 ...3 months away from now, how come we can have a Federal Province wide election in 5 weeks and we have to wait until June 24th/2011 to vote down the HST...A BC Election official last week on the Simi Sara show stated...

    The mail out ballot would take several months to set up, it`s a real challenge getting the ballots ready, a Provincial election would require even more time to prepare, since BC has fixed election dates Elections BC no longer has the ability to arrange voting spots through out the Province in a rush..

    Well, what happened Craig James, where did the Federal Election people find the power to move mountains and part the seas to pull this amazing feat off? A Province wide election in 5 weeks,...It`s a miracle friends, the Feds must be Gods, a Greek God wielding the power of Zeus and Moses combined!

    So how come it takes months to send out a mail out ballot, the question is already drafted, the printers could have the ballots printed in days, I guarantee you folks that the mail out ballot could be drafted, sent out and returned in a month at most and if the need was there it could be done in 2 weeks so for Craig James and Elections BC to continue on with these lies is an insult to everyone in British Columbia, it`s also a pox on every media`s house for not asking Craig James how the Feds can make miracles happen but Elections BC can`t even get a mail out ballot out to BCers without several months notice.

    Back to the mail out ballot, Gordon Campbell changed BC`s Election law and criteria to be able to vote 2 years ago, having worked the polls I am very familiar with it, people had to bring in ID(Identification) Hydro bills and phone bills and verify not only who they were but where they live, there was outrage by a few of the protectors of Democratic rights over that move, people who were homeless or couch surfing were disenfranchised from the voting process by this move, it made it very difficult for people down on their luck too be able to vote, it was another move designed to give an edge to the wealthy elites, no wonder our voting numbers continue to fall.....

    So now with a mail out ballot we have no idea if one family members fills out and signs every ballot, we have no idea who will be sending in ballots, we will have no idea if every riding will receive the ballot, remember the BC Liberal membership PIN number mail out fiasco?....Multiply that mail out by a factor of 50, instead of mailing out 50,000 pin numbers now we are talking about mailing over 2 million ballots, who will be blamed if things go wrong, Canada post, Elections BC, will strong NDP ridings get the same mail delivery as West Vancouver, will ballots for the yes side be bought by corporations, will employees be offered prizes for ceding or surrendering their vote, after the BC Liberal membership fiasco can we really trust a mail out vote or online vote....

    My suggestion to to Bill Vanderzalm and the no HST side is to demand that the Ballots be mailed out 2 months in advance of the June 24th date and allow voters 2 months to return the ballot....Government does it all the time, from tax forms to medical requests to the licensing process...

    There is no way in hell me and my fellow BCers will allow the BC Liberals and Craig James to screw over the voters again, if there isn`t 100% faith in the process and if something goes wrong I wouldn`t want to work in Elections BC...I believe employees would run for fear of retaliation by voters who have been pushed too far!

    Gordon Campbell and BC Liberals, Democracy Killers or Worse?

    There is some very disturbing things happening in British Columbia at present, actually it`s far beyond disturbing it`s downright terrifying.....

    As you know David Loukedalis at one time worked in the Freedom of Information office, he was very effective, in fact he was continually at odds with BC`s attorney General ministry, they clashed swords time and time again and the BC Liberal response to Loukedalis was to cut funding, delay in responding to legitimate requests and create enormous fees for access, in other words the department got completely neutered and what happened next sent shock waves through the minds of the people who still believe in Democracy...

    Loukedalis was suddenly out of the freedom of information office and entered the hallways of BC`s attorney General`s office, Loukedalis switched sides and was promoted to deputy Attorney General, Loukedalis was now working for the same people he railed against and it gets worse, his first act as Deputy minster was to make the decision to forgive Basi and Virk`s legal fees and end the BC Rail/BC Liberal corruption trial, you can`t make this stuff up, a brand new hire making the most controversial decision a public servant has ever made in B.C....And Loukedalis has never made a public statement, the De Jong used Loukedalis`s once reputation as a straight shooter and fighter for the people to justify the decision, to this day the stench and wishy washy explanation from the BC Liberals has not been answered to anyone`s satisfaction....

    We have also seen a two-bit hack judge in Wally Oppal not only endorse an illegal Gag law imposed by Gordon Campbell but he staunchly defended the decision even though he knew the gag law would never survive a court challenge, Wally was complicit with trying to silence any voices of dissent, ultimately the gag law was removed but not until after the 2009 election was over, the BC supreme court struck down the gag law but that wasn`t sufficient, the Liberals went to the appeals court where once again the gag law was struck down, no doubt the gag law will return once again when we get close to another BC election....The gag law was a advertising ban that covered not only the 28-day election campaign, meaning it would now cover a total period of 88 days.

    And who doesn`t remember this classic buffoonery statement made by Wally Oppal after the Supreme court struck down his law.

    Oppal admitted the original proposal might have been too restrictive and it touched off a "vigorous debate."

    "I think we ran something up the flagpole and it didn't fly like we thought it would," the attorney general told reporters

    That is so sad, can you imagine a judge talking about Democratic rights killing law as being a flag hoisted up a flag pole, the hypocrisy is stunning, the lack of  judgment and professionalism for an old experienced bench sitting judge is shocking, the only answer is...Oppal was following orders from Gordon Campbell and to hell with law or Democracy.

    As you know my Dad has been ill but he`s a fighter, he is fighting cancer, a wonky heart but strong mind however, however events over the last few weeks have confirmed my worse fears, BC is the home to subtle death squads, as I sit here writing this article I am listening to Gordon Campbell`s brother Michael Campbell on his Saturday show on CKNW rail away about all the seniors in Canada, he claims health care for the baby boomers is unsustainable, the silver tsunami nightmare is here and it can`t be accommodated by health Canada and who can forget Kevin Falcon wanting to outsource our hospitals to medical tourism, Falcon made this sick statement...

    "We can use the money we make on medical tourism to help pay for medical procedures for BCers"

    Just think, Falcon wanted to fill up our hospitals with foreigners for cash and offer BCers  piece meal scraps of health care, what Gordon Campbell and Kevin Falcon were attempting to do was illegal, contrary to the Canada Health Act, the legal challenges were mounting and they backed down, or have they?

    The gall of all BC Liberals wanting to use our hospitals and facilities for medical tourism...Hospitals that got built with BCers tax dollars, Dr. Mengele would be proud of these Bilderbergers.

    My dad was in Lion`s gate hospital three weeks ago, my Mom is elderly but sharp as a tack, my Dad was all wired up, we were visiting, I mentioned to my mom that the monitor showing his vital signs, particularly the blood oxygen level was fluctuating between 97% and 50%....Your blood oxygen level should never drop below 95%, I know all about blood oxygen level being a sleep aptnea sufferer and CPAP user(a breathing device used while sleeping, not oxygen but forced air, I have used my machine for 5 years now)...I mentioned to my mom, ask the nurse to give Dad oxygen when she returns, where my dad was at Lion`s Gate hospital there is a nursing station right next to his room and there was also a security guard stationed directly in front of my Dad`s room(nothing to do with my Dad, there was a violent patient in the next room)....Never the less I had to leave but reminded my Mom to ask the nurse to give Dad air....Well well well..

    I left, the story from my Mom the next day was shocking and criminal....According to my mom, when the nurse returned she asked the nurse to give Dad air, the nurse waffled, my Mom was persistent, eventually the nurse put a little nose oxygen blower in his nose, the nurse then left, according to my mom the blood oxygen reading(That is measured by a little clothepeg type device squeezing a finger)...The reading on the monitor jumped to 99% and stayed there, however the nose air blower device wouldn`t stay in, it was too loose, and according to Mom when the device fell out the reading went back to fluctuating from the low 90%s to 50%s,  the nurse returned and my mom asked the nurse if she could add a little tape to the air blower to keep it from falling out......

    Now remember folks, the security guard is directly in front of my Dad`s open room, the nurse said to my mom...

    "It really doesn`t matter about the air"

    My mom told the nurse that his reading on the monitor stayed at 99% with the device in his nose and dropped off when it fell out....Well, what the nurse said next was shocking, ....Now remember where my mom was sitting she was facing the security guard, the nurse was facing away from the security dude, the nurse said to my mom..

    "There there dear, those numbers on the monitor aren`t really accurate they always fluctuate"

    My mom who was facing the security guard( the nurse wasn`t facing the guard but my mom was)..My mom said to me that the security guard did a major eye roll in shock over what the nurse said...My mom not being stupid or gullible then questioned the nurse with...Are you saying the heart rate reading is wrong, the pulse rate is wrong, if the readings aren`t accurate why is he hooked up

    The nurse said again, there there dear lady the numbers aren`t important and it was at this time the security guard starred at my mom and shook his head side to side....!

    Knowing the importance of good air, when my dad was released from the hospital to die, they all wrote him off, I put him on my air machine, I put him on a natural  tumor shrinking diet, the skin on his hands and feet that almost all fell off from the cancer pills they were giving dad has come back, he has energy, he has a rosy glow, yet when we tried to get him his own machine we were told by the sleep clinic that he needed a prescription from a doctor, we were thwarted by the doctors, they said no need, don`t bother(we were not asking BC medical to buy the $1400.00 device)...His family doctor balked, my mom then asked for a referral for my Dad to see my Dad`s heart doctor whom he hadn`t seen since last July, my Dad`s doctor receptionist said my dad really didn`t need to see him at this time, well...I drove my Mom to Dad`s heart doctor and his office was EMPTY..My mom tried to book an appointment but was told she needed a referral, we still haven`t got a referral from his family doctor....

    I through hook and crook got an overnight oximeter device that my dad wore through that night(at home)..The device gently squeezes the finger and is connected to a device that records his blood oxygen level through the night....Then you take the device the next day to..........Where they download the information and chart his blood oxygen and according to this graph my Dad desperately needed this device....About low blood oxygen levels, if you don`t get enough air at night your body beats up the heart, the less oxygen you gets the hearts beats faster and faster demanding more and more oxygen that isn`t there, low oxygen causes fatigue, it hurts every part of your body, in a young person it`s not as noticeable but older people need quality recovery sleep....Well according to the data my Dad`s average blood oxygen level(without the CPAP machine)was about 86%...Way too low, but there were spikes of 1% oxygen, the pulse rates during these oxygen events went from 23 to 240 ..240 is full blown Arrhythmia.....The data readers(not BC medical people) said that Dad desperately needs the machine and told me and Mom that low blood oxygen hurts everything in the body and hurts the heart every night while sleeping, he emphasized how much he would improve with the device....

    My mom called Dad`s doctor office, she faxed the data to the doctors office, a week later they still haven`t responded to the fax or multiple phone calls, meanwhile my dad was getting better and better using my machine and our natural tumor shrinking foods and therapy(Mind you I was now sleep deprived because I get no recovery sleep without my machine)...My dad is walking, playing jeopardy again, he has a rosy glow, he danced a little jig last week....So by hook and crook I bought another CPAP machine, a brand new one with mask and gave it too dad, we couldn`t wait for BC`s medical system.....Finally through relentless pressure my Dad`s doctor looked at the data from the oximeter and confirmed his need for the device....However the stalls and delays continue, he needs an ultra sound on his stomach and it appears we will again have to go to a private clinic to get it done unless we are prepared to wait who knows how long....

    We have eliminated most of these toxic pills BC`s doctors unloaded on Dad, yet every unsuspecting senior is being pilled to death, they still won`t give him a referral to his heart doctor, my mom asked my Dad`s family doctor if they are being pressured by the health authorities to not recommend procedures to older patients because of shortages and under funding, his doctor said..NO....But as I listen to Michael Campbell, Gordon Campbell`s brother rail on and on about unsustainable health care, Kevin Falcon trying to break the Canada health act and bring in medical tourism...

    Meanwhile, as you know I had some medical issues and had a preliminary poke in the butt, the Doctor who looked at me in November 2010 just happens to be in the same building as my Dad`s doctor, ....When I got poked in the butt I was told by this doctor I would get the camera work done some time in 2011....My mom, always thinking stopped into reception to ask on my behalf why 5 months later no one has called her son(me) about the camera work...The receptionist told my mom that the backlog is over a year, the system is overwhelmed....And folks, that backlog is for middle aged people.....

    So it is my opinion that doctors are being pressured to let old people die, prescribe some pills and shoo them away, Gordon Campbell has so messed up BC`s health system that it can`t even service middle aged people what are the odds that the medical community will fight to extend life by a year or three for our senior citizens?....I guess you only get good care if you are an ex premier or a fat lazy hog boy Bill Good who has had I believe two hip replacements yet I can`t get a picture and my Dad can`t get a CPAP machine without a giant fight!....

    Freedom of information gutted, David Loukedalis switches sides and makes the Basi Virk decision(not really, the decision has Loukedalis`s name on it but Gordon Campbell made the call)...Wally Oppal with hoisting gag laws up a flag pole to see how they fly....We have BC Rail stolen from us, BC Ferries taken away, contracts torn up, not one new bed for seniors, Campbell promised 5000 new acute care beds in 2001 and 10 years later there are less acute care beds today then there was in 2001 and simple demographics told everyone that seniors were coming, it`s no accident it`s an on purpose..

    Craig James, a two bit flunkee holding the position of chief electoral officer when he shouldn`t be there, the legislature must be recalled and a bi-partisan new chief electoral officer must be placed in that position BEFORE the HST mail out ballot because BC Liberals have proven themselves that they can`t be trusted..They have interfered with the Auditor General, every independent watchdog group has been assaulted by the BC Liberals and or corrupted....

    And then when I read this story today, BC`s chief coroner has quit over Government interference, according to this professional Coroner the independence and decision making is being dictated by the BC Government, reviews and public statements, everything being orchestrated by the BC Liberal Government, funding for the coroners office has been slashed, the power of decision making taken away...The job of the coroner is to investigate suspicious deaths, deaths of children in Government care, deaths of people in custody(RCMP), .deaths in hospitals, deaths on native reserves, in schools, all suspicious death is what the chief coroner investigates, friends, this is not a glamorous job, why would these professionals lash out at the BC Government and quit over Government interference and funding shortfalls if it wasn`t true....

    Are BC Liberal death squads here, they may not be pulling the trigger but the BC Liberals through health authorities and funding pressure have made it perfectly clear to doctors and hospitals....Death Squads through neglect and under funding, refuse referrals, deny life saving devices, load seniors up with pills, load them up with so many pain killers and let patients kill themselves, and of course we can`t have a fully funded independent coroners department be allowed to bring these deaths to the light of public scrutiny!

    Control the media, control the courts, control the police, neuter all the watchdog groups, there are people still alive that saw this picture before, it was in the 1940`s and it played out in Hitler`s Nazi Germany, who would of figured the story would be remade and played out again in British Columbia.

    BC Liberal Jane Thornthwaite Trial for Drunk Driving is on April/12/2011





    Just a subtle reminder to my friends in the lower mainland and whatever is left of our investigative journalists...

    BC Liberal MLA Jane Thornthwaite  will be in North Vancouver court on April 12th/2011 for her full trial .....Jane Thorthwaite, as you know got busted for driving drunk during the Olympics, Jane was partying at Sochi House and consuming plenty of wine, there were hundreds of witnesses that saw Jane Thornthwaite`s drinking at Sochi House...
    _______________________________________________________________________________________________
    P,A 54940-1 THORNTHWAITE, JANE Ann North Vancouver Provincial Court 12Apr2011
    9:30 AM
    001 FT IBJ 720:10-5138
    _______________________________________________________________________________________________
    After consuming her Alcohol Jane Thornthwaite left Sochi house late in the evening, she got a lift to the Sea Bus on the Vancouver side where she rode the Sea Bus to the North Shore where she had her vehicle parked....From there Jane Thornthwaite took the industrial road and headed to North Vancouver, unfortunately for Miss Thorthwaite the RCMP had set up a roadblock under the Iron Workers Memorial bridge specifically designed to catch those drivers using quiet industrial roads while drunk...

    Despite the fact that Jane blew well over the legal limit, despite the fact that when the story broke last year Jane Thornthwaite apologized to her constituents in her riding and asked for forgiveness, despite that fact that she admitted drinking and acknowledged that SHE KNEW WHAT SHE DID WAS WRONG......

    Despite all of that Jane Thornthwaite has plead not guilty and is hoping to get off on a technicality or maybe the police officer will suddenly be transferred to the North Pole and not show up for her full trial on April/12/2011..

    Perhaps some of our media and politicians might be interested in attending....

    Never the less, you are one classy BC Liberal Jane Thornthwaite, you are right up there with Kash Heed who awaits his BC Supreme court trial on election fraud, can I give you some advice Jane?....

    Don`t let speedy John Von Dongen drive you to court, may I suggest you ask Christy Clark to drive you to court, I`m sure the court would be much more lenient on you if Christy Clark is with you!

    Bill Good, Fat Hog Boy!

    Hey great news folks, the giant company Shaw just laid off 500 hundred employees, according to the story, the Shaw brass conducted a review and the layoffs are being called, .....

    "A way to increase efficiency and increase productivity"

    Sound familiar, what happened to the HST creating jobs, what about all those HST credits Shaw can claim, hmmm?

    There was a poll out yesterday from Mario Canseco, I don`t know what is going on with Angus Reid but as of late Mario Canseco doesn`t just report the numbers he`s turned into a political pundit, giving advice and commenting about potential leaders and policy, Mario has become starstruck with TV and radio interviews, never-the-less his last poll is totally bogus, according to Canseco the...

    "BC Liberals are leading on Vancouver island" snip

    Sorry friends, I call them the way I see them and there is no way in hell the NDP are trailing on the island, I would be just as skeptical if Mario Canseco said the NDP were leading in Abbotsford or Quilchena ridings, ...If it doesn`t make sense it isn`t true, period!

    Laila Yuile has a good post up about the Surrey memorial hospital expansion, the other day Christy Clark attended a photo-op announcing the construction of the hospital expansion...That is rich, let me take you back to one month before the 2005 BC general election, Keith Baldrey and the other BC Liberal pimps attended a photo-op in Surrey, Gordon Campbell announced the emergency room expansion and...

    And Gordon Campbell stated that the Hospital expansion would be finished(completely built) by the fall of 2008 and the new ambulatory tower would be complete by 2009......

    Fast forward to 2009 and there was another photo-op in Surrey re-announcing the same projects that had yet to be even started, not one shovel in the ground and here we are in 2011 and we have another photo-op in Surrey announcing the construction again.....As my dear friend Laila Yuile states......

    Christy didn`t make it happen, the contract was signed by the preferred builder before she was even leader, but what is even more shameful is no big media even bothered to mention that this project was originally announced in 2005 with a completion date that passed over a year ago....The MSM in this Province are corrupt bastards working to harm the public, there is no media anymore in BC except blogs, here and BC Mary`s site, Norm Farrell`s site, Koot`s Gary E`s and Ross K....And as much as it pains me to say it even AGT has been rocking the media...I don`t mean to offend anyone by leaving any good news reporting blogs out, everyone over in our blog roll are worthy of reading...

    Back to the Surrey memorial hospital announcements, below is cut and pasted from the BC Liberal web site, read the story folks and you will realize how much the BC Liberals lie and re-announce everything over and over again, and like I say, the most disturbing part of this is how not one big media bothered to report what Laila and I have!

    Premier Campbell Announces Surrey Outpatient Hospital Location

    June 22, 2006
    Surrey - Premier Gordon Campbell today announced that the Green Timbers site in Surrey will be home to the new 148,000-square foot Surrey Outpatient Hospital as part of the Province's plans to improve access to health care and ease congestion at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH).

    "The health-care needs of the people of Surrey and the entire Fraser Valley have been a top priority for our government," said Campbell. "The Surrey Outpatient Hospital will provide more space and better facilities for day surgeries, health clinics and family medicine while freeing up space for an expanded emergency room and more acute care beds at Surrey Memorial."


    The planned Surrey Outpatient Hospital will be located at a 5.8-acre site on the corner of 140th Street and the Fraser Highway, at an estimated cost of $126 million. Construction is expected to begin in 2008 with completion in 2009. The site is currently Crown Land owned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands and will be transferred to the Ministry of Health for approximately $1 million.


    The Fraser Health Authority chose the Green Timbers location because it is less than one km from Surrey Memorial Hospital and offers easy access for patients by road and public transportation while also allowing for future opportunities for growth. The site is also cost-effective because of the availability of above-ground parking.


    "The site for the new outpatient hospital is based on what is best for the residents of Surrey," said Health Minister George Abbott. "Surrey Memorial Hospital was built in 1959 to serve a population of approximately 70,000 compared to a diverse cultural population and community of over 330,000 today. Our expansion plan will serve the residents of Surrey today and in the future."


    Surrey Memorial Hospital handled 154,159 outpatient visits in 2005/06. This number is expected to grow by 60 per cent by 2020. Many outpatient services are fragmented and dispersed throughout various buildings and floor levels at SMH, resulting in complicated "way-finding" and lengthy walking distances for patients. The existing facility, as it is currently configured, is not efficient for delivery of outpatient care and is unable to accommodate the growth required to meet future patient needs.


    "More than half the current patient visits at Surrey Memorial are for out-patient care and that proportion is rising," said Fraser Health's interim CEO Keith Anderson. "Identifying Green Timbers as the site for the future home of the outpatient facility and primary care clinic is a major development in our plans to serve the health needs of Surrey's growing population."


    Building a specialized, day-patient facility to ease pressure at Surrey Memorial Hospital was first proposed by Premier Campbell in May 2005. A subsequent report outlining a range of options endorsed by government was released in December 2005 and included the recommendation of the outpatient hospital and primary care centre. Moving outpatient services to the new location will create additional space in Surrey Memorial Hospital for inpatient needs and allow work to begin on the remaining recommendations. These include increasing acute care beds and building a new emergency facility.


    In addition to today's announcement of the site for the Surrey Outpatient Hospital, the provincial government has taken several actions to improve health care in Surrey and throughout the Fraser Valley
    .

    ______________________________________________________________________________________________
    This project was proposed by Campbell with a big photo-op in MAY of 2005(as indicated by the bold lines in the above cut n pasted Liberal spin)


    So 2008 went by, 2009 went by, 2010 is gone and now the New Cluck Cluck Sensation is re-announcing the project again....The Global`s, the CTV`s...The Black press and big dailies should bow their heads in shame and apologize, Hari Kari would please me more but I would settle for a little honest journalism.

    But what I really wanted to talk about was Hog Boy Billy Good......Billy had Jack Layton on his show for a whole 10 minutes this morning(between 8:50am to 9:00am)....Bill y had a real derogatory tone too his interview, again Billy was trying to blame Jack Layton for the upcoming election, however that is not what I want to talk about, after the Layton interview Billy Hog Boy had on three representatives, one from each party for the 9:00 am to 9:30 segment, Billy boy mentioned they would be taking calls, well well well....

    The first caller and only caller in the 9:00 am to 9:30 am segment was someone named Brian(it wasn`t me)...The caller said...I`m paraphrasing here...

    "Can we trust the Harper Government with a majority, will he protect our democratic institutions, can Harper really be trusted........"

    And then Billy Hog Boy Good cut the caller off in a huff....Then what Hog Boy did was ......Hog Boy said(The 9:30 news was next and the 9:00 am to 9:30 am segment was over)

    I`m paraphrasing here....Hog Boy said...We will have to get this panel together again, the NDP representative and Liberal representative are leaving and Mr.Powers will be staying to take questions....

    I was shocked, Billy Hog said he would take callers, the first caller went at the Conservatives, Hog Boy cut him off in a snit, Hog boy then did the next 30 minute segment with only the Conservative representative to spin the facts and answer staged callers who love the Conservatives and how outraged they are that they may have to spend 30 minutes to vote...OH the HUMANITY!...Sheesh...That is pathetic, are you telling me that it wasn`t planned to dump the other party representatives and spotlight a Federal Con spinner...Bad radio indeed, Goebells media...Billy Hog Boy Racist Good, PERIOD!

    And to finish up folks, I hear the Federal Cons and the media crying about the cost of an election, $300 million dollars, like I said, there is no better real person stimulus package than holding elections, having worked many elections the people who work them are seniors, students, mothers and fathers and people like me, almost all the money spent on elections goes to regular folks and this story here backs me up and debunks the myth that election spending is money wasted, it`s a great read enjoy

    BC Liberals and Conservatives make me sick, out of one side of their mouth they claim spending $900 million on a roof is a stimulus package that creates jobs where as spending money employing little old people during an election is wasting money, Effing hypocrites! And what about Harper spending $30 million dollars in two months advertising how he spent billions of deficit dollars, that my friends is really wasted money, you wanted this election Harper, good luck with all those contempt of Parliament charges, pleasent dreams Bev Oda!

    I don`t know what to say folks, the media in this Province are not only not reporting the truth they are actively working to harm the public, 20 years ago the media in this Province would be stripped of their journalistic credentials for lying and spinning, and not subtle but blatant lies and spin...I guess that`s why no less than 20 relatives of media personalities work for the BC Liberal Public affairs bureau!

    Brad Zubyk, Christy Clark`s Co-Campaign Manager Hits the CKNW Airwaves for the Last Time!

    Billy racist Good and CKNW have crossed over the line between ethics and organized crime, no longer is CKNW a source of news, every story is presented by a spin doctor, falsified facts and blatant lies......

    Billy little boy Good at 8:30 am presented another biased thoughtless editorial this morning, his target was no other than the NDP, not Provincial but Federal, Billy boy was attacking Jack Layton for not supporting the budget, Billy puts all blame for the upcoming election at Jack Layton`s feet, not one word about the Bloc voting against the budget and  of course Billy boy gave Christy Clark`s Federal Liberals a pass, why is it Jack`s fault, I give full credit to Layton, Harper is a bold faced liar, bring on the election, with the Cons involved in an election leaves less opportunities for them to destroy Canada....

    But for Bill Good to blame only the NDP shows just how far into the sewer Bill Good has descended, before I get started let me explain why CKNW is no longer to be trusted with anything but sport scores...Sean Leslie, CKNW`s legislative REPORTER(You are no journalist or bureau Chief, you are a paid stooge)...Sean Leslie`s wife works for the BC Liberal PAB...How can Sean Leslie be a straight up radio voice when his wife is giving Sean Leslie direct Government talking points....Rebbecca Scott, a 6 year CKNW employee who produced Christy Clark`s(and Billy Good) show is now working for Christy Clark as communications director.....How many more media have wives and relatives working for PAB...Keith Baldrey`s wife works for the BC Liberals....Michael Smyth has been sent to the Goebells school of mind retraining and depending on the success of purging Smyth`s cognitive brain cells and replacing them with NDP hatred and BC Liberal talking points will determine whether or not his voice returns to the airwaves...

    Brad Zubyk...Christy Clark`s campaign adviser and NOW Federal Liberal Communication`s director  has been on CKNW newscast the last two days, according to Christy Clark`s co-campaign manager Brad Zubyk......Brad Zubyk believes he can elect here in BC a whole new batch of Federal Liberals, Brad claims they can take many ridings from the Conservatives, including Kingsway riding once held by floor crosser and large stock holder in the smart meter company David Emerson....

    I was informed by one of my sources that Christy Clark`s people contacted CKNW and ordered them to not air any more statements from Brad Zubyck that promotes the Federal Liberals on their newscast, according to my source Christy Clark is still trying to con the public that she has no involvement in the Federal liberal party, nothing could be further from the truth, Christy laid down the law(Of Government advertising dollars) to the minions at CKNW.....Brad Zubyk with his tail between his legs has agreed to keep off the public airwaves, unfortunately for Christy Clark ....Brad Zubyk has already damaged Clark`s reputation, and it also shows you people to what extent CKNW and Bill Good will go too spin and distort the news! You can hear Brad Zubyk on the CKNW Audio vault here..  (Cue up March/22/7:00 pm, Zubyk speaks on CKNW news, about 7:03 pm)....Now what were you saying Cluck Cluck about not being a Federal Liberal?...More lies Cluck Cluck?

    This is going to get very interesting, here we will be having a Federal election(An election that Christy Clark is dreading) ...Brad Zubyk, Clark`s co-campaign manager is traveling the Province promoting Federal Liberals, Christy Clark was expected to help elect Federal Liberals in BC but Clark hadn`t figured on a Federal election before we had a BC General election.....

    Here`s the deal, with a Federal election the Federal Liberals and Federal NDP and all the independents will be hammering away on the BC Liberal`s and Federal Conservative`s HST, all this will be happening just before our June 24th HST referendum, ....This should be juicy, all those politicians hammering away on the Conservative/BC Liberal HST just before we vote the tax down, Christy Clark will be stuck between a rock and a hard place, Clark will be asked to help her Federal Liberal party and at the same time Kevin Falcon will be promoting Federal Conservatives and the HST.....

    This my friends is and will be the catalyst to the break up of the BC Liberals....BCers hate Iggy and the Federal Liberals, a huge chunk of BCers hate the Federal Conservatives and then there will be the Federal NDP fighting for the little guy, fighting against the HST, reminding every BCer about all the job losses, the price spikes, our growing deficit, skyrocketing hydro rates and massive corporate profits.....

    So what does Christy Clark do, promote the Federal Liberals and create enemies in her party, does she promote Federal Cons to keep the party together, does she promote nobody and both the Federal Liberals and Cons lose seats to the NDP.....Harper has a big problem in BC over the HST, BCers can`t stand the smug elitist Michael Ignatief, the protest vote in BC is going Orange......And when that happens Christy Clark will have offended both the Federal Liberals and Federal Conservatives......

    Which brings me back to Bill the racist Good, his editorial this morning was a con job, his first guest was a paid stooge con job planted to scare Jack Layton and the NDP into not forcing an election and capitulate, Bill Good and his guest insinuated that the voters will make the Federal NDP pay a huge price for causing/forcing an election....

    Stephen Harper can prevent an election on his own with amendments to the budget, Billy Good was in full blown propaganda and spin zone this morning in an attempt to persuade the Federal NDP to cave in, Billy Good`s motives are to protect Christy Clark from the approaching nightmare of a Federal election weeks before our HST vote, the nightmare of no mandate, Clark is stuck in nowhere land folks, everything is going according to plan and my connections in the Federal NDP are well aware of what Billy Good was attempting, .....Poor old brain dead Billy Good trying to blame the Federal party with the fewest seats by a long shot for causing an election.....

    Well Goodly with no more woodly(Try the blue pill with your chianti)......The game is over Bill Good, you have been outed, CKNW has been exposed for what they really are...BC Liberal stooges....

    Lastly folks, one of the locals in our little town on the sunshinecoast said something too me that made me smile, something I really hadn`t thought about.....

    What this woman said was....."Hey Grant, do you know that you are the only person in the Province who can claim that they made the Premier of British Columbia retract on air for lying about BC Ferries, and who else in the Province can say that Premier Clark out of anger had a temper tantrum and took your Olympic prize you won on CKNW away out of spite for making her look the fool on radio"

    It definitely put a smile on my face....Meanwhile, bring on the Federal election and remember this Federal Liberals and Federal NDP candidates...HST HST HST...JOB LOSSES JOB LOSSES JOB LOSSES....PRICES UP ON EVERYTHING...RECORD CORPORATE PROFITS WHILE BCers DROWN IN DEBT....

    Better luck next time Foolish Billy.....Enjoy the Federal election Cluck Cluck....

    HST Falls Upon Empty Wallets(updated)

    I hear Christy Cluck Cluck Clark and other members of the corrupt BC Liberals talk about how BCers didn`t have a full debate on the HST, they talk about how confused the consumer is and it`s just a matter of getting the facts out there...Bullshit, the Lying scabs known as BC Liberals had an entire year before the tax came in, they had the Nazi Phil Hocstein pimping the HST, John Winters, Jock Finlayson, every idiot economist, Sam the Crimean war veteran Scam, the BC Chamber of Commerce, the mining industry, the forestry industry, the DECLINING FILM INDUSTRY, the Fraser institute, the flip flop liar Jack Mintz, Bill fat face Good, Sean Leslie, Christy Cluck Cluck Clark, Global news, CTV news, the unholy Vancouver Sun and their paid stooges Vaughn Palmer, Don the pathetic spinner Cayo and the entire un-named Vancouver Sun Editorial board featuring long time Fraser institute writer and Nazi Fazi Mihlar, a whole year before the tax came in, another 9 months since it has been in effect and no prices have fallen, prices have risen on everything and we are seeing job losses, and retail......

    How much more evidence do we need to prove that the HST in British Columbia is a complete and total bust, the food industry, tourism, entertainment industry all reeling and what about retail sales......

    Stats Canada has come out with its latest report on consumer spending in retail and guess what.....

    "B.C. has the largest decline in retail sales year over year"

    B.C. retail sales have declined year over year, not the lowest increase but a net loss, BC is down over 1% year over year in retail sales by contrast the Province of Alberta had a year over year 5.5% increase in retail sales, how many of those sales went to BCers crossing over the border, in the Northeast part of the Province, our border towns all saw a major flood of shoppers heading east and heading south to spend their Canadian dollars....

    BCs employment numbers are down, year over year BC has lost 40,000 jobs, no prices have fallen, companies are not hiring new employees, big industry has not lowered prices by one dime in fact prices are up and BC leads Canada in inflation on energy, food, fuels, goods and services, here in BC we have the highest unemployment rate in Canada next to the Maritimes who have had the HST since 1996!!!!....How come Atlantic Canada isn`t the corporate headquarters of Canada, how come the Maritimes hasn`t got the lowest unemployment rate....

    The truth is the HST is a fraud, unproven right wing stink tank ideology, no facts, no proof just spin and lies about wait 10 years to see positive HST results...HA...Can you imagine any corporation doing anything that they wouldn`t see results for at least a decade, it wouldn`t happen.....

    Can someone with connected brain cells tell me why Alberta retail sales year over year are up 5.5% and British Columbia had a 1% drop?

    The highest food prices in Canada in BC...The highest energy prices...The highest housing costs...The lowest minimum wage in Canada even after the May/1/2011 increase....The highest tuition in Canada....

    And we BCers are not just heading east to Alberta, with the at par dollar, cheaper fuel, cheaper food and services and retail goods just across the line has driven Canadians in droves to Bellingham, in fact Canadian traffic is up nearly 40%...I have met many people in the last week who live in Surrey and the Fraser Valley who are traveling once a week to fill up their cars and trucks with US gasoline, my one brother in law saves 70$ dollars on one fill up of his truck, his wife, my sister saves 35$ on her car, once a week for their family to save $100 dollars, that will almost pay for a week`s grocery bill....

    So what we have is BCs big industry not hiring but laying off employees, any investment by big industry in BC  in technology doesn`t create jobs but eliminate them, that`s the one item that ticks me off, stooge Governments and greedy corporations pad each other`s seat, industry asks for a tax cut with the promise of reinvesting and more jobs but in most cases  big upgrades in new plants result in modernization, robotics and job losses, corporations and Government have a word for that, it`s called productivity, to produce a set amount of goods with X amount of labour, here in Canada we rank almost last, to jump to first we need to produce more goods with less labour, so when I hear these buzz words like the need to increase productivity, quantitative easing, austerity measures.....The real meaning of those words and phrases are....Layoff employees....Print money and devalue the currency...Renege on every promise Government made, .....In other words we give tax breaks to corporations to slash their workforce through "increased productivity"

    I was watching Charlie Rose on PBS the other night and he had on as a guest Charlie Wrangle(A Democratic Senator in the USA)....The interview was boring but Charlie Wrangle said something that rang true to me....He said and I quote....

    "We are at high risk of being the first generation of lawmakers and Government to create an underclass"

     Charlie was responding to a question from Charlie Rose about..."Where are the jobs"

    What Charlie wrangle was referring to.....Tens of millions of Americans are jobless, successive Governments have allowed the corporation to flee to slave labour lands, the race to the bottom, with natural increased productivity, with slave labour available by the billions, with tax loopholes, robotics, there are no jobs to give these people, a jobless recovery, the first one in history, the corporate warlords of greed have learned to thrive and prosper while millions and millions go without, Harper`s undisclosed corporate tax cuts in this latest budget, 10`s of billions of dollars per year, who knows how much the real number is, Harper has refused to come clean, big business is flush with cash and we give them more, the lowest corporate tax rate in the G20...Meanwhile most Canadians are drowning in debt...

    Teachers, police, unions, all unions, I hope the masses  awaken soon, we are in the midst of the last final assault by the Robber barons, the Bilderbergs, corporate takeover, capitalism like the game of monopoly has but one outcome, someone devours all...Meanwhile the sheeple just blindly wander dazed and confused clueless to their surroundings.


      Where was I.....Tourism is reeling, the food industry is on the ropes with 700 food joints to be shuttered by July, families, parents even seniors are going without, buying on line, buying in Alberta and heading south, big industry despite record commodity prices refuse to pass on a red cent of savings to any consumer.....

    CKNW Sam the scam is an old tired fool who is clueless, Jack Mintz is a lying sack of shit, the Fraser institute are a right wing spin machine with zero data to prove the HST does a damn thing for the people, CD Howe, every study was flawed, Atlantic Canada`s HST.....The lying sacks of garbage love to cite numbers from Atlantic Canada, I am one more time going to explain to our useless lying politicians and pieces of garbage named Sam and Jack Mintz about Atlantic Canada`s HST...

    In 1996 Atlantic Canada had two taxes...They had the 7% GST as did the rest of Canada....They also had a 12% PST(Provincial sales tax)....Combined it totaled 19%.....To lure Atlantic Canada into accepting a HST combined tax they lowered the Provincial tax(PST) by 4 percentage points....After they accepted the HST their combined tax rate was lowered to 15%....A 4 point drop....Here in BC nothing of the sort is or has happened, here in BC taxes went up on everything, on labour, new housing, all services, vitamins, school supplies etc etc etc...

    And even when one studies the Atlantic Canada HST...Housing prices rose in price after they harmonized, energy prices rose, services and labour costs all rose for the public and retail......Drum roll please.....

    Even after the combined tax rate was lowered by a staggering 4 percentage points retail prices fell a mere 0.8 percent on SOME items while a whole range of other costs rose....Where did the other 3.2% in savings go...

    British Columbia is a resource exporting Province, our main customers are the USA and Asia, in other words the $2 billion dollar yearly tax shift benefits exporting companies, forget the one time $1.6 billion dollar bribe, forget about paying Ottawa back, both the Federal Government and big industry have soaked up the largesse courtesy of the beleaguered taxpayer...

    The talk from big industry about raising wages for workers because of the HST...Another sick joke, Teck Cominco has record profits, billions and billions in profits yet they refuse to give disposable workers a fair shake, Sparwood coal mine is now on strike, the workers requests have been all but rejected

    What will it take, how many more people will leave BC for greener pastures, how many more workers to be laid off, how low do retail sales have to fall before a stubborn brain dead Government reacts, job losses, the highest price increases in Canada, the biggest year over year drop in retail sales numbers....With fuel spiking just in time for the driving season, food inflation going through the roof, companies not hiring, tolls, user fees, property taxes, hydro rates, tuition rates, prepare my friends, British Columbia is falling into a full blown home made BC Liberal  recession..

    Gordon Campbell and the mindless, spineless trough sucking BC Liberal stooges have destroyed BC`s economy and if Christy Cluck Cluck Clark has any connected brain cells she would cancel the HST referendum, call the Legislature and remove the HST pronto....And if she doesn`t she will be Governing a dead last in Canada Province!

    UPDATED HERE...More proof the HST is a bust...Despite Shaw TV being able to claim all those HST credits they announced 500 layoffs today, including hundreds from BC, where are those jobs Christy Clark, Well Gordon Liar Campbell, what do you say Ferret face Colin Hansen....Can you explain these layoffs Jack Mintz!......According to the Shaw executives, the layoffs have come about after a recent review on how to become more efficient and increase "productivity"....Maybe one day the masses will wake up....Increased productivity, code word for layoffs.

    The New Sensation

    Where does one start, this damn keyboard dares me, taunts me and challenges me to write something worth reading and while the world is ripe with stories my mind is quiet and I apologize for no posts but the time required to write means being selfish with family, this time they needed all my attention but with Dad now feeling better he demanded I post something and stop brooding.....

    Well well well, brooding?......I couldn`t help but notice Michael Smyth again is not on the air on CKNW, that`s what, 6 of the last 7 weeks with no Michael Smyth on CKNW, nothing like extended holidays during the school season and at the start of a so-called new radio career, never mind I`m just musing to myself, I can`t help but think of the people of Japan, the human tragedy, entire villages wiped off the map and 20,000 plus dead, staggering numbers but the thing that sticks in my head is property values and radiation, can you imagine, who would want to live within even 200 miles of those permanently damaged reactors, the winds blow all directions and who would want to rebuild anywhere near that zone, already radiation is showing up in cows milk and in the grasses, how much radiation will reach the water table, I am no nuclear scientist(Maybe our good friend Seth can enlighten us) but I do know human nature, I wouldn`t move to Japan, I wouldn`t take land near the reactor even if it was free, the truth is folks, this disaster has probably permanently spoiled and radiated 1000s of square miles, more farm land gone, another assault on the world`s food supply, will the Japanese Government buy out the residents at pre-meltdown prices, I doubt it.....The Kalamazoo river was killed by Enbridge pipeline, the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf states are still reeling from the BP oil spill, can you imagine the damage to a giant Enbridge pipeline if we had a massive shaker, Enbridge`s proposed pipeline that would traverse thousands of rivers and streams, a pipeline going through mountain ranges in a active earthquake zone....Forgetaboutit Enbridge, blood will flow to stop such a project.....

    Haiti, New Zealand, Japan, B.C.?.....Our turn is coming for the big one and I haven`t heard anything from Christy Clark about fast tracking all the earthquake proofing of our schools, we can`t afford to wait, forget about the BC Legislature I wouldn`t shed a single tear if politicians got squished like bugs on a highway during a big shake, besides, the odds that the BC legislature is even open during an earthquake is slim to none, how many days have our Elected(?) officials sat in the house in the last 2 years....A couple of months of sitting days at most in 2 years....However our students do attend school and if we have an earthquake of even 8 on the richter scale entire communities of kids will be killed, the thought of every child in some towns flattened by bricks and mortar is too much to bear, Gordon Campbell utterly failed in his seismic upgrading plan, another Gordon Campbell 2005 photo-op promising to earthquake proof our schools by 2016 and here we are in 2011 and a mere 15% of schools have been retro-fitted, at the BC Liberal pace of progress it will never be done.....

    Christy Clark, if she really cares about families will announce that the entirety of her her $1 billion dollar slush fund will be spent on earthquake proofing schools and building new needed schools in Surrey, everyday a child attends class in an old not earthquake retrofitted school the Government is rolling the dice, I don`t want to hear about casinos, roofs and or rising health care costs, in fact friends if I was a parent of a child who went to a school that could collapse and kill it`s inhabitants during an earthquake I wouldn`t let them attend, I personally don`t think the risk is worth it, we as a human species didn`t have all this knowledge on earthquakes in the 40s, 50s, 60,s, 70,s, 90s when we built schools....You notice I left out the 80s and 2000s...Socreds and BC Liberals never built schools, they burnt them down and shuttered their windows....

    Nobody is talking about this issue, well folks, we are........I would also like to touch on Christy Clark`s first couple of weeks in office.....The minimum wage being increased, it`s about time but nothing has been done YET on minimum wage, already the big business lobby is screaming and yelling and pulling their hair out over these first meager steps....Minimum wage to go up 75cents per hour in May/2011.....10 months later until the second increase of 75 more cents and finally in May of 2012 to reach $10.25 per hour....So here we have to wait 15 months to have our BC minimum wage rise the middle of the pack, I can almost guarantee that increase number two and three never happen, the Fraser institute, BC Chamber of Commerce, BC Business council, the Food and Restaurant association,oh the humanity of raising our minimum wage to the back of the pack over 18 odd months in the most expensive Province in Canada....The minimum wage had to rise, it took no hero to raise the minimum from the lowest to.....Oh yea, we are STILL the lowest, two months to wait until BC raises the minimum wage to the LOWEST MINIMUM WAGE in CANADA....That`s right people, even with the first increase we will still be dead last, and as for the other increases, so far off and no guarantee that they will go through, I`ll hold off on that one handed clap.....

    Cluck Cluck met with Stephen Harper last week, the media asked what they talked about and Cluck Cluck Clark said she talked about reversing the Prosperity mine Fish Lake destruction project decision and said nothing about the HST fraud being perpetrated on BCers, not one word on when we vote down the HST, that friends is very troubling, Tesako mine is completely changing the scope of the fish lake prosperity mine and will be resubmitting a brand new less destructive plan and Christy Clark rather than dealing with the Federal Government on the looming vote removing our HST has chose to waste time on Fish lake project and leave the HST in place......Also Christy Clark is having the new Minister of energy Rich Coleman look at the rate increases and the $2 billion dollar smart meter fraud with BC Hydro executives....This is nothing but a con job, Christy Clark will not stop any of these Crown Corporation crimes from being perpetrated on BCers, it`s all smoke and mirrors and stalls......

    And it also exposes all the BC Liberal MLAs as hypocrites, Ian Black the last two years citing Neils Veldhuis of the Fraser institute on how minimum wage will cost 111,000 jobs, it shows the mindless sheep Liberals who accepted the clean energy act that was rammed through the house without debate through closure, it shows how Blair Leckstrom and Bill Bennett, Hansen, Falcon, all of them voted to neuter the BCUC(British Columbia Utilities Commission) and strip away any oversight they had, where are those BC Liberals now standing up in defence of the clean energy act.....Gutless, spineless sheep, Bill Bennett comes groveling back begging Christy to take him back, Blair Leckstrom has come back to the BC Liberal tit to suckle and then there is the Cluckster herself, Cluck Cluck places Dr.Stiwell in the backbenches, McDiarmid gets back benched, any female with talent was shuffled into the bleachers, Mary Polak rises, the molly maid trained civil servant stays in cabinet while a true doctor gets short shrifted, obviously Christy Clark doesn`t want to surround herself with any other women with brains.....

    Lastly friends, oh, and before I start...(@BC Mary,,,Mary, John Horgan was on the air last Friday with Simi Sara on CKNW between 2:00PM and 2:30PM and Horgan was asked about BC Rail and Horgan stated on air that he will call for a complete BC Rail inquiry into the sale, the players, the lobbyists and the indemnity policy)

    Last Friday on the cutting ledge, the three stooges, Balderdash, Baldrey and Palmer, every caller was wanting a inquiry into BC Rail, despite the pathetic offering from Christy Clark, Palmer and Good and Balderdash were drinking the Christy Kool Aid....Let me get this Straight, Christy Clark under pressure announced that there would be a limited inquiry into the Government employee legal fee indemnity policy but....But none of the past pay-outs or cases will be looked at, the inquiry will simply look into the policy without Basi/Virk or any defendent guilty or innocent looked upon....ARE YOU KIDDING ME......Palmer/Badrey/Good/ those damn stooges think this review is appropriate, are they on drugs, let me put it this way, remember the insider rigged auctions at ICBC when Campbell`s buddy Paul Taylor was in charge, imagine looking into the policy on auctions at ICBC without looking at the fraud!....Imagine looking at radar speeding traps where cops are letting other cops go without examining those cases, imagine examining the operations on the bridges of BC Ferry boats without looking at the sinking of the Queen of the North...

    The point I am getting at is this...Where the hell is the media, you can`t look a t the Government employee indemnity policy without examining the cases that went deliberately wrong.....Let me explain, if you are a BC Government employee and you are told to cut a cheque, deny a cheque, you are told  to deny benefits, order a review, or whatever, in the course of your Government employ you do what you are told and for whatever reasons someone sues you, individually or through class action as a dutiful employee you follow orders and get sued you should and must have your legal fees paid for, the policy is fine, let me put it this way, as a Government employee, you follow orders, get sued and lose everything for following orders, does that seem right, every Province has a Government legal fee indemnity policy for workers, the deals is....If you are guilty the legal fee indemnity is gone, you forfeit that right, a real simple policy......

    But here`s the deal folks, Dave Basi and Bobby Virk knew how the indemnity policy worked, it was 100% explained to them and the proof is out there, the proof is staring BC`s stooge media in their face, the proof is staring at the BC Liberals, the proof is.....

    Early on in the BC Rail corruption trial both Dave Basi and Bobby Virk handed over the deeds to their proprty, the BC Government was holding the properties, so very early on the policy was explained to Bobby Virk and David Basi and the BC Government grabbed a hold of the deeds to their property, if Basi and Virk were proven guilty they would lose everything, if they were innocent they would lose nothing......

    So how is it the BC Government who had gained legal possession of Basi`s and Virk`s properties decided to let it go for a surprise guilty plea?

    Whitmarsh and Loukedalis were ordered to make the decision of forgiving every legal bill and to release the properties of Basi and Virk which the BC Government already had, they had signed papers, the properties were gone, if the BC Government wanted the properties they had them, the newly appointed deputies in the ministry of the Attorney General Whitmarsh and Loukedalis did the dirty deed of returning the properties to Basi and Virk and forgiving all legal fees for a guilty plea and stay at home card...

    The BC Liberals, the ministry of the Attorney General is lying, they say it would have cost too much money to chase down Basi and Virk assets, that is a bold-faced lie, the BC Liberal Government had those properties in their possession for years.....So to do any kind of a review into the legal fee indemnity policy is a joke, the policy is fine, to do a review without examining the one`s that went wrong is a farce..

    If the three stooges and BC Media can`t see how pathetic it is to do a review without examining any of the past cases and decisions is an insult to anyone with even half a brain!

    Corporate Star Chamber

    I was really puzzled as to what title to put on this story and it`s not the first time this problem has reared its head but this post is on title number 4.....

    Newt Ginrich, big time Republican and once House speaker is considering a run for President in 2012......Here is what Newt Ginrich said after after being questioned on why he left his first sick wife and cheated on his second wife at a fundamental Christian network ...(Below frame cut n pasted)
    _______________________________________________________________________________________________

    Gingrich, who's considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, told the Christian Broadcasting Network that he has asked God's forgiveness for past mistakes. He recently converted to Catholicism.
    "There's no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate," Gingrich said.
    The former U.S. House speaker left Wife No. 1, Jackie Battley, while she was recovering from cancer to marry Wife No. 2, Marianne Ginther. During that marriage, he had an affair with former congressional aide Callista Bisek, who became Wife No. 3.
    The affair happened at the same time he was attacking  Bill Clinton for his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky
    _____________________________________________________________________________________________

    Another lying SOB folks, can you imagine the gall of Newt Ginrich, he blames his behavior, his dumping of his first sick wife, cheating on number two, probably cheating on number three, he blames or should I say he uses the excuse it`s because he loves his country so much he cheated and bailed on sick wife, look friends, it is not as if Newt Ginrich confessed his sins and became reborn, no, not at all, the ex wives started talking after Newt proposed running for the presidency in 2012....It appears the EXs don`t want Newt or trust him to be in charge, the damn hypocrisy of right wing bastards to spew virtue and church and rail against abortion while engaging in shameless behavior,.....But you know what, the group, the right, the damn church will open their arms and elect him to office again and again and it just doesn`t matter what he did because he`s one of their own....

    I heard a guy on with Sean Leslie today at 5:30 pm/Sunday, the man is employed in our smart meter program, Sean Leslie described the segment as and I quote... "Get all your questions on smart meters answered by an expert".

    Isn`t that interesting, Sean Leslie starts the segment by saying he is in favor of smart meters,  this so-called expert is employed in our smart meter program, it was an infomercial, it was sad, the man is being paid by the crown to sell BC smart meters to the public, to you!..It was blatant bullshit spin, his job was to spin, John Macolm has been all over this issue, spending $billions on smart meters, the pitfalls, how their hacked, how many many problems these smart meters have and how they are nothing but a device to charge you more money at dinner time and Sean Leslie(Whose wife works for the BC PUBLIC AFFAIRS BUREAU) lobs nothing but softball questions and performs like a trained monkey.....I guess Christy Clark told Sean Leslie to pick up the BC Liberal slack or become a man with an unemployed wife......

    Never-the-less I actually learned something about BC`s proposed smart meters that I never knew before, I watched and listened to the debate in our BC legislature two years ago and again last spring, the Lying BC Liberal said over and over again in our legislature and in the press that these smart meters would be installed in one`s house, they said the adults, kids, parents whoever could see their real time power use on their INDOOR smart meters, the Liberals claimed this would teach kids and others how to conserve energy but now it has been revealed by Sean Leslie`s guest today that in fact they are not installed in the home but outside where your present meter is!!!!!....And if you want a indoor device that can display what the outside meter says that will be an additional purchase the customer could CHOOSE to make at a so far undisclosed cost....

    Isn`t that interesting, the Liberals lied again, have you seen where some outside meters are located, behind bushes, under ledges, not exactly what they advertised, you expect some teenager or senior citizen to go crawl around outside in the rain or snow in winter(When people use the most Hydro) and go look at his new smart meter and see the different wheels turn!!!...Nobody ever talked about an additional cost to the customer,.....

    So here`s the deal, the smart meters were originally advertised in our BC Legislature as costing $400 million dollars, then the price rose to $600 million dollars, now the price is over $1 billion dollars, the devices were advertised in our BC Legislature as being installed in the home where people would learn to watch it and see first hand their power usage, now that`s another lie, the third lie was revealed today about additional consumer costs to buy a device to actually see what the NOW OUTDOOR smart meter is doing, almost every concept of the meter as originally advertised has changed, including 4 consecutive price increases as to the cost....Sure reminds me of the $900 million dollar retractable roof that got shoved down our throat and blackmailed over major league soccer, the public no sooner finished licking its wounds over that price tag when a giant money sucking mega-casino gets tossed at us, now they blackmail the public again about how the casino must happen...The reason, they now claim to defer the cost of the Retractable doughnut hole roof but that again it`s a lie, the payback on the roof from Paragon might take 40 years, the odds are that neither Paragon, the deal or BC Place will even exist in 40 years are slim to none!

    The BC Liberal corporate way,  remember Gordon Campbell`s claims about run of river, how we would be power exporting giants, the jobs, the investment, how BC Hydro can`t produce enough power, now what, smart meters to charge you extra money for power at dinner time, homework time, family time, that on top of 40% increase in rates over the last 4 years, that after a two tier rate that charges a premium for any power over 1250 kh per month, now another 53% increase over the next 5 years plus the smart meter premium rate at family time....What happened, the corporate lying bastard BC Liberals teased us a little, the media lapdogs drank the Kool Aid and allowed this crime against BC Families to grow and grow and no media is asking the questions....WHAT HAPPENED...What happened to being a energy powerhouse, what happened to making money, what happened to our residential domestic rates, what happened to smart meters being in the home.....One little lie gets bought by the media, they don`t research, they ignore the facts, one little lie feeds the next bigger lie and on and on it goes and when the shit hits the fan the spineless bought and sold media ask but one question....

    "What would the opposition do"

    Not one MSM will admit that they not only failed to ask any questions all along but actually attacked the opponents of run of river and massively over priced long term energy contracts, voices like John Calvert, Rafe Mair, Damien Gillis, Will McMartin, the NDP and the Straight Goods voiced opposition to run of river here and radio....

    The Corporation, we are no longer Governed by our representatives in BC or Canada, Tech Cominco, Rogers, Telus, the banks, General Electric, Accenture, Corporations, lobbyists and Government insiders now control every move the BC Liberals make, and Alberta and most of Canada...Did you catch that story last week, a scientist was vindicated over his finding`s on the Athabasca river in Alberta, he produced documents/results that the river is spiking with Tar Sand toxins, the Alberta EA was basically charged with lying, the Corporation made the Alberta Government lie or should I say the Corporation ordered it`s employees to say what they said...A simple boss/employee relationship, toe the line or lose your job, last year the Alberta Corporation Government had to apologize for slandering and lying about other scientist opposing the Tar Sands too.

    When did the job of citizen elected Governments become spinning for the Corporation, not only spinning but lying, smart meters in the home, cheap power, the HST will lower prices, Corporations will pass on saving`s, see your grocery bill, how about filling up the car, can anyone tell me anything that dropped in price, how about our good friend Jack flip flop Mintz, didn`t you hear, the HST, we now have the highest unemployment in Canada next to the Maritimes in Altlantic Canada, the Maritimes have had the HST since 1996 and the have the highest unemployment in Canada and now WE..We in BC now have the honour of following in their HST footstep and where is the critical examination by the media in this Province.....Our media will never hold the BC Liberals feet to the fire, the media in BC and Canada now only ask one question...

    "What would the opposition do"

    The press is dead, media has never cast blame on Republicans or Conservatives or BC Liberals, those Governments are never held to account,  any blame is always directed to someone else, the left, the NDP, the socialist hordes, the 90s. What about George W Bush.....If one didn`t know better, one might think the collapse and assault on the masses was planned, set up to fall on the democrat`s watch, and here he is a Black Democrat, who talks about Bush jr and Bush senior, remember the Savings and Loan scandal under Bush Senior, the biggest banking thefts in history under father and son and will get the blame?...Obama, he`s been a slug, he was dealt a bad deck but did nothing, he gave in, he should have forced the Republicans and took the country to the edge of anarchy....Instead he capitulated, the Obama dream died, fascism, Corporatism.slavism, Debtism, controlism I don`t know what Canada or BC stand for anymore...

    We no longer have Government of the people for the people we have Government of the shareholders and for the corporation....

    Lastly, at one time we went to Serbia and Eastern Europe, lots of places and fought for democracy, by we I mean Governments and the United Nations, NATO, etc...Something changed while everyone was worrying about gay rights, abortion and illegal immigrants, while everyone was looking the other way our Governments were hijacked, Iraq had nothing to do with the 911 attacks, the people didn`t want us there, the Taliban had nothing to do with 911 either, it was a few hundred Al Qaeda fighters but the Corporation wanted war, war in the land of oil, George Bush, America and the Corporation told the world the reason to invade Iraq was one of bringing Democracy, freeing innocents from tyranny, at least that was the excuse but now.....

    But now the Corporation isn`t interested in helping the people of Libya with Democracy or Egypt or any middle east or African Nation`s people with democracy, on the news, on almost every newscast the citizens fighting in Libya are called "REBELS"...Not freedom fighters, not oppressed people wanting Democracy but rebels, the same in Egypt, no one cared about those woman who were kicked and stoned last week for asking for equal rights, this time it`s different, this time the Corporation is the one stomping out freedom, the revolts in Egypt, Libya, Wisconsin, Indiana, the Congo, Saudi Arabia, Yemen.....

    This time it`s different because the people are rising up against the machine, against the corporation, in Libya, Saudi Arabia, everywhere the people want their share of the riches, they won`t be lied too, the wars are people against the Corporation, against Corporate Governments against legalized slavery

    This war is a Class war, what will it take friends, will we, the USA, Obama, Europe, Canada, will we merely watch the people`s of the world wanting freedom from a distance get butchered and burned, those wanting Democracy and their slice of the future get slaughtered one by one, when will the United Nations, NATO, America, Canada take a stand for Democracy, when will Corporate America once again allow our Governments to fight for Humanity.

    Don`t hold your breath...
