A blast from the Straight Goods past.....November/2010
Strange times have descended upon the earth, we now live in a world where the "Greed Monsters" rule and children, seniors, workers are but disposable impediments......
In the UK, now Ireland, spain, Greece, the US and coming to our country very very soon, we hear the continual drone of messaging from Conservative neo-cons in all corners of the world, we are living too long, we expect too many underserved entitlements, austerity measures are required(read taketh away your everything).....
Taxes on liquor and tobacco must be raised and raised because of the health cost arising from their use, yet when citizens of the world through clean living live longer and longer then were told that pensions and health care are unsustainable.
Every morning at 8:25am Michael Campbell beats the drum about how pensions must be slashed, health care is unsustainable, entitlements of working stiffs must be rolled back, he applauds the "austerity measures" taken by the UK, now by Ireland, here in BC we have the lowest corporate tax rate in the world(and that was before the HST)...Campbell cut their share of school taxes in half, tax break after tax break that lead to zeros on the Government balance sheet.
Offshore tax havens are everywhere, profits and cash funneled out of the country and hidden, no taxes paid and when big corporations have a bad year every loss is written off against future profits.
Hedge fund managers making $billion dollar paycheques,.
Henry Paulson paid a $600 million dollar bonus when he left Goldman Sachs, pure greed by the few, fraudulent securities and financial instruments, corporations who failed to fund private pensions and keep their promises to workers, those companies who couldn`t slash pensions merely fold up tent claim insolvency and poof, no more pensions, .....Australia tried to impose a "super profits" mining tax and BHP Bilton (mining giant) overthrew the Australian Government, they spent $100 million dollars advertising against the Government and ultimately against the people, ...Ireland was the investment capital hotbed for several years, Ireland had slashed the corporate tax rate to the lowest in the world, companies moved there, investments were made but the Government reaped no reward, empty coffers, a housing bubble took effect, Irish banks played loosey goosey and when the shit hit the fan when all the bundled securities were opened up and revealed they were made of air the fire alarm bell went off and now....
And now in the UK and in Ireland school tuition is being tripled, welfares rates cut in half, workers being laid of by the millions, new user fees on health services, on everything, austerity measures from hell, this is happening in Spain, in Greece, Ireland, the uK, the US will be next and Canada, the Michael Levy`s, Michael Campbell`s the Fraser institute beat the drum everyday demanding the same thing here, the howls by the Fraser institute for lowering corporate taxes more and more and the screams of agony when anyone suggests raising the minimum wage....
Tesako mines and Teck Cominco with record profits despite the recession caused by Wall Street, the S&P companies sitting on $trillions of dollars, banks not lending money, credit card usuary rates, $trillions of dollars in tax havens in the Cayman islands, Bermuda and when the big boys got in trouble because playing with $billions of dollars weren`t enough they dabbled in the spatial game of derivatives, credit default swaps, games being played with pixels and numbers on computer screens, the derivative market is a $800 trillion dollar market, 10 times more money in the world and when the big boys got caught with their pants down they come cap-in-hand to the Government banks and printing presses for bail outs, if the Government refused they threatened to fire all employees, move to cheaper slave lands where politicians can be bought for pennies rather than dollars.
So now the people of the world are being told their entitlements are gone, tuitions tripled, the wrath is directed at the weakest and payback is coming from the poorest, to those with no voice, no representation, not once has any Government said that corporate taxes will be raised, the howls from Gordon Campbell`s brother Michael Campbell, the screams of pain from the Fraser institue, the old saying comes back again and again, "corporations don`t pat taxes people do"..In other words a veiled threat that if taxes are raised so will be their prices, a vicious self-sustaining circle.....
We have reached a crossroads in time, the battle between the commoners and the robberbarons, politicians have never been so corrupt, they receive directorships and lucrative lifelong taxpayer guaranteed pensions.
And as the dollars are ripped from the public, credit cards and interest payments become a National staple and the bombardment of ads promising economic freedom by merely handing over your money to Wall Street and investment firms never quit, the greed has rooted itself in the underbelly of finance and Government, Tesako prosperity mine and Fish Lake, they fought to destroy our water, our fish, a way of life for a Nation .......And when the project went the Federal Government for approval......Drum roll please...
Two weeks before the decision someone leaked to the big boys and they dumped the stock faster than a hot potato...The trading was at ten times the normal level, there has been an rcmp investigation into insider trading and isn`t that a coincidence that Jim Prentice who made the decision resigned the day after to take on a cushy gig at a big bank!
Big banks at one time had to stay capitalized, not no more, US banks are ready to fall again for playing games
The FBI in the US have raided three giant hedge funds for fraud and insider trading
And then you get the likes of the Fraser institute, CD Howe, Tom Freidman, Wall Street who want less regulation, less oversight.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg coming down the pipe, here in B.C. you could write a book on fraudulent accounting and bookeeping within Government, Governments around the world are bought and sold like trading cards and representation for people, for children, for human life is all but gone, that`s what the tea party movement is all about, that`s what Recall is all about, the anger, the riots in Europe, I was touched by the Irish School kids today who are wondering why they are paying the price for the greed and financial crimes of Wall Street and corrupt politicians.
Here in BC prices are rising faster than anywhere in Canada, the HST is a fraud, a $2billion dollar theft every year from we BCers, no prices will ever drop with the HST, the BC Liberal Government is the most corrupt government in canada, the tentacles are everywhere, Government staffers being rewarded at IPPs, directorships, they all have one thing in common, they are BC Liberals, our democracy in the Province has been stolen, the getaway car is speeding down the highway, we must throw out a spike strip before our freedom is all but gone!
And today, the "Effing" Beuracrat Craig James at Elections BC has rejected the Oak Bay recall registration, he claims the acronym MLA ...HST..is not one word, Craig James claims that MLA is 5 words!!!!!!!....As in Member of the legislative assembly....Harmonized sales tax.....So now they have to re-file, and that includes many many registrations, .....Craig James could of phoned the petitioner and said there are too many words but chose not to....Craig James is an Effing bought and paid stooge and if he was in front of me I may be in jail right for what I would do to him...Sorry about the anger, The BC Liberals have seen the polls done in Oak Bay and they know Ida Chong has chomped her last lunch and this is nothing but a deliberate attempt to subvert justice and democracy....
The line in the sand has been drawn today friends...It`s us against the Government, us againt Bill fat mouth Good, us against Christy Clucking Clark, us against tryanny, .....You made a huge error with your flunkie Craig James today Gordon Campbell...
You have spawned a brand new invigorated anger that won`t be quelled until your gone, defeated and jailed, the books will be opened, the crimes exposed.
"It`s always darkest before we see the light at the end of the tunnel"
Your party is dead Campbell, your henchmen will be romoved, Falcon, Coleman, De Jong, Corrupt Heed, Bond, Bell, you lying dogs are going down.
And where the hell is our railway, CN Rail haven`t paid for it yet, we want it back......Your going to Hell Campbells, Gordon and Michael!!!
