On the Sunshine coast after a slow start due to delays from Elections B.C. we have got the big mo on our side, the total amount of signatures we need for our riding is 3600 ......Well as of Saturday night we have collected almost 2500 of our total, but we are going big, were shooting for at least 10,000 signatures, I have turned many people away who said they weren`t registered to vote, but, I am handing out the toll free number for Elections B.C. and telling them to register to vote and once they have registered to return to sign the petition.
It seems to me that many are now regretting the fact that they didn`t vote, so not only are we going to thump a fat 1 million signature petition in front of Gordon the impaler(thanks Kam) but we are going to bring thousands of new voices to the voting booths, and friends these newly registered voters will not be voting for Gordon the impaler or any B.C. Liberal....
There will be no Dianne Watts to the rescue, the Liberals are cooked, done like dinner, right now Gordon Campbell is in panic mode, he is busy awarding lucrative deals to his corporate backers, deals that stink to high heaven, the Paragon deal with Campbell`s friend Richard Turner is so smelly my lip curdles just thinking about it.
Another deal, well another proposal deal coming tomorrow is the announcement of Site C dam in the Peace River Valley, the first thing that strikes me about this deal is the fact that it is in only stage 2 of a 5 stage environmental and economic review, Blair Leckstrom is being led by a leash to act the fool for Gordon Campbell, the environmentalists are going to go nuts over this announcement, I have had a few very concerned faithful readers and contributors getting upset over this deal, I try and look and think outside of the box, the first thing that comes to mind is Gordon the impaler`s revenge, you see folks, the peace river riding was one of the first riding to sign enough signatures on the HST petition, now that Campbell has roasted his chances in that riding, the people have spoken now comes Campbell`s revenge, that`s how he operates, I have said it before, Gordon Campbell is criminally insane!
And as you know I tend to get a little emotional, but as for Site C......I`m not too worried about it, there are still three stages of the review to go, that will take time, time is what Gordon Campbell doesn`t have, the Gordon the Impaler and the B.C. Liberal enabler party are on their last legs, the talk about 2013 turning orange, I`m not interested in 2013 .....The Government will fall within a year.
"Recall in the Fall".......After the successful HST initiative the people will feel so empowered, I suspect that Gordon Campbell will ignore the HST initiative, that won`t bother me, when the Impaler ignores 1 million voters, when people start paying that tax, on funerals, meals, on everything, the citizens will see that tax everyday, the anger, the snowball will grow and grow and recall will be done, I have no doubt about that, Campbell is so out of touch, skyrocketing hydro bills, municipal taxes are going up, in fact I read an article about EIC premiums, well guess what, they are going to spike, early estimates is a $500 dollar hit per year for each average worker, and that`s shocking, the reason it`s shocking is because Federal Governments of all stripes have been pillaging to the tune of over $50 billion dollars from the EIC fund and dumped the theft into General revenue, the people have awoken, the other shoe that is about to fall is that the Federal GST is going to rise, I suspect that after July 1 /2010 the Feds are going to raise the GST to 6%, ......
No more friends, we have the lowest corporate tax rate of the G7 countries, here in BC the Government collects more money from tuition then all Corporate tax, and that`s before the HST has come in, the carbon tax goes up on July 1/2010......Something big is happening, there is a freight train called the HST revolt roaring down the tracks, anyone who doesn`t get out of the way will be flattened, I wish it was a BC Rail train that was carrying the message.
Another very wise person who regularly contributes to the flavour of this site has a great idea, Gordon the Impaler will be sending out propaganda on the HST as a push back, this mail out doesn`t worry me in the least, after all, Colin Pinocchio Hansen has had 10 months to convince the people, and how much luck has bill Good, Michael Campbell, Michael Levy, Keith Baldrey, Jack Mintz, Crusty Clark, and the rest of his minions had?...........Drum roll please....
None at all, in fact there are more opposed to the HST after 10 months of spin then there was in July when it was announced!
Crankypant`s idea is for everyone to send back the HST propaganda ...."Return to Sender"
I think that`s a fantastic idea, I don`t know how much it will cost but can you imagine, 2 million pieces of garbage sent back to Gordon Campbell!
Just a short few weeks ago the people of BC were in the streets drunk on pride and spirits, Gordon the Impaler was screaming the national anthem waving a giant flag while wearing stupid red mittens to cover his blood stained hands, the last act of a desperate scoundrel is to wrap themself in the flag, in fact friends the impaler was expecting an Olympic bounce, I don`t think Campbell was expecting to get an Olympic bounce right out of office, it`s going to be a Long Hot Summer.
