A vote for LIE-berals......................................


is a VOTE FOR civil service union HOG GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






Here is a story out of the Post Media detailing the hypocrisy and double- speak of LIE-beral money managers-along with some comments of my own in brackets):

It's time we tackled government debt. By Jim Warren.
Postmedia Network. First posted: Saturday, July 02, 2016 06:30 PM EDT | Updated: Saturday, July 02, 2016 06:39 PM EDT

The federal government should be dedicating specific tax revenues to reduce the debt of Canada’s provincial and municipal governments.

(Sorry-LIE-berals consider that buying votes and staying power is more important than fussing about reducing crippling debt loads!)

In addition, we should be placing restrictions on the total amount of debt provincial and municipal governments can borrow in order to force local politicians to make more realistic decisions about increasing taxes and reducing spending.

(Debt is BAD-one has only to look at the mess in the Pigs-Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain to see that debt can CRIPPLE an entire society! So who would speak in favour of MORE debts for Cdns? And WHY only put limits on provincial and municipal govt? Why not on federal clowns too?)

( Make a LIST and put on it the following who ALL want MORE debt: LIE-berals trying to BUY civil service Hog votes! LIE-berals such as Our brainless Boy prime minister Trudope who follows in his fathers footsteps and wants to DESTROY what he calls Cdn Imperialism! The civil service Hogs themselves who have more entitlements than we can EVER pay for and don’t care if they bankrupt us just so long as they get what they THINK they deserve! Various immigrant groups such as the Muslim supporters of the Cdn Caliphate who want us to collapse and be reborn as a Muslim nation under Sharia Law-the “most perfect system” as THEY call it; and they figure our collapse will come SOONER if we are BANKRUPT and not able to defend ourselves! Muddled reverse racists of groups like Black Lives Matter who don’t care what happens to white people just so long as its bad-and are not smart enough to figure out what will happen to gormless blacks if white govt fails! If the country is bankrupt then WHO will be buying the drugs and the `ho`s and other merchandise? And how will blacks be living if there is no more welfare? Throw in air head environmentalists who want our economy to collapse so we wont `oppress the Earth and its creatures any longer` -and so what if we few survivors of the collapse end up shivering in mud huts and eating our one daily meal of Dandelion greens RAW because trees are sacred and not for burning, building or heating!)

Parliamentary Budget Officer Jean-Denis Fréchette warned in a report last week that Canada’s provinces and sub-national governments are struggling with their finances and their debt levels are unsustainable.

(I have to ask: does this imbecile Frechette realize that our prime minister is all FOR massive debts? The more spending the merrier-so WHAT that the mad spending plan of Our foolish Boy is nothing more than a MASSIVE RETREAD of that old Ontari-owe NDP plan to make us rich by BORROWING MONEY! And we all remember how that worked out-with those Rae days and Hogs besieging Queens Park as replacement premier Mike Harris struggled to restore common sense and logic-while OPP “wacked and stacked” Brainless Hogs who did not know when they were well off!)

(Apparently Frechette has drunk the coolaid and BELIEVES that Our brainless Boy can perform a magic trick and somehow pull something valuable out of his ass! Fifty years of LIE-beral socialism and civil servants now figure robbing Peter to pay Paul and then screwing them both in favour of Hogs is standard govt business! But just what is it that Hogs figure can be collected from ALREADY bankrupt citizens is not clearly spelled out! Oh well, LIE-berals can always restore order by BORROWING EVEN MORE?)

The report looked at total government spending, revenue and debt levels for all levels of government, as well as the Canada Pension Plan and Quebec Pension Plan.

The PBO concluded that after the new spending and infrastructure announcements made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the federal government fiscal plan is sustainable.

However, it also concludes the total sub-national debt for the provinces and cities across Canada is not sustainable, and they require new revenue or spending cuts to bring their debt to sustainable levels.

(What the report tells us is that the provinces and cities are BANKRUPT-and that in a few years-after a series of those THIRTY BILLION PLUS BOOB RAE style Trudope deficits-the federal govt will ALSO be bankrupt. And NOBODY is asking what will happen to the provinces if Ottawa cuts back on transfer payments to bankrupt provinces- as WAS DONE by debt hobbled LIE-beral Jean Chretien? And no-after a certain point -as Boob Rae found out-YOU CANNOT BORROW ANY MORE!)

This presents a huge political and economic problem for Canada’s provinces and cities – and therefore an even bigger problem for Canadians.

When governments borrow money to invest in infrastructure programs like highways, bridges or transit, they build assets for the future with the costs spread out over several generations.

(But borrowing money so govt can buy Hog votes is clearly not sustainable!)

Our country needs this type of spending and Trudeau is working with the provinces and cities to implement the largest infrastructure program in Canadian history.

(Problem is that Boy is really only handing out enough money to REPAIR infrastructure-there will be NOTHING NEW built and certainly no critical new transit produced on his watch!)

The Alberta economy especially needs this shot in the arm, as does Ontario. It means spending money to make money as infrastructure spending helps grow both the economy and tax revenues.

(Apparently it would be useful for LIE-berals to purchase and WATCH the old TVO documentary on the bankruptcy of New Zealand! Infrastructure spending is STILL SPENDING! New Zealand hit the debt wall and had to STOP installing things like sewers in new subdivisions-yeah-picture-AND smell it-brand new houses and the toilets flush DIRECTLY into a trench out back cause there is NO money for pipes! Don’t like the smell and the swarms of vermin living on your shit piled out back of your NICE house? Too f***ing bad-it’s the PRICE of bankruptcy!)

But we need our cities and provinces to dedicate specific tax revenue to pay down these costs over time and to cover interest and debt repayment. They need specific rules to dedicate money to cover these costs and there needs to be limits to how much money can be borrowed.

While federal spending on infrasctructure is sustainable, that is not the case in the provinces.

The answer is not to toss more federal money to the lower levels of government.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul is just more money out of our pockets since there’s only one taxpayer. If your family faced this problem, you would get your fiscal house in order or you would lose your house.

In addition, the provinces are facing an aging population that requires more health care spending than ever before.

(In other words Warren is advocating that we dump LIE-beral clowns in favour of somebody with a spine and a frugal way with money!)

Education spending is more important than ever to ensure our young people can earn enough income to pay enough taxes to take care of the boomers as they retire.

(Other comments have been posted on this site to illustrate that LIE-berals would rather spend on teachers than on health care-even as student enrollment shrinks and numbers of people seeking health care soar-teachers are DEDICATED LIE-beral supporters-medical types are not and as always LIE-beral priorities are
SCREWED in favour of reliable supporters!)

But these fiscal realities come at a cost that today’s politicians must be honest about with taxpayers, instead of just borrowing more money. Taking on more debt to pay for health care is like burning your furniture to heat your house – it’s unsustainable.

We enjoy a standard of care in health and other services that we do not pay for. We have to spend less and live with that quality – or pay the true cost to keep the standards we have.

(I say that`s LIE-beral GARBAGE! LIE-berals have CHOSEN between gravy for Hogs and spending for health care! It’s a SIMPLE EQUATION-more money for gravy means MORE HOG VOTES for LIE-berals and LESS money for health care-which is already being rationed to ordinary people!)

If the federal government just sends more money to cities and provinces, we will not have a proper debate about paying the true costs of our society and the benefits we enjoy.

If the federal government has the fiscal room, it should be dedicated to infrastructure spending or debt relief for the provinces, while putting limits on how much more money they can borrow.

(Its been said before on this site-LIE-beral govt MUST chose between sensible budgets and more gravy for Hogs-and since LIE-berals CANNOT be elected without massive support from their Hog pals, we know LIE-berals will not handle our money wisely without having a gun put to their heads! What`s REALLY funny about the Frechette remarks about debt is that he is a federal Hog and yet he recognizes the heart of the LIE-beral problem. I guess he must be able to add and subtract well and is worried about his health care and his old age pension-WITH GOOD REASON!)

(And the KICKER regarding all these warnings and comments about debt? Brought to you courtesy of LIE-beral strategists Jim Warren-who worked on the Dalton McGinty campaign! Yes, Warren helped LIE-eral fools seeking power and apparently has now seen the light! Too bad Ontari-owe debt has DOUBLED since McGinty came to power with Warrens help!)

Oddly enough the only thing that keeps those of us in building trades working is a strong economy and that means a political environment where major employers are comfortable making multi billion investment decisions. Infrastructure projects are just recycled tax dollars and usually an excessive number of them.

Felicity Huffman sentenced to 14 days in jail for college scandal
Reuters
Published:
September 13, 2019
Updated:
September 13, 2019 5:20 PM EDT
BOSTON — Actress Felicity Huffman, the first parent sentenced in a wide-ranging U.S. college admissions cheating scandal, was given a 14-day prison term on Friday and made a sombre apology in federal court for paying to rig her daughter’s entrance exam.
U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani also ordered Huffman, the former star of the popular television series “Desperate Housewives” and one-time Academy Award nominee, to pay a $30,000 fine, undergo a year of supervised release and complete 250 hours of community service. Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty in May.
“My first apology is to you,” Huffman, wearing a black dress, told the judge immediately before being sentenced.
“I realize now as a mother that love and truth must go hand in hand, and love at the expense of truth is not real love,” the actress said. “I will deserve whatever punishment you give me.”
Huffman was released from court after the judge ordered her to report to prison on Oct. 25. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, who had been seated in the courtroom and is not charged in the scheme, immediately approached her after court adjourned and rubbed her shoulders.

The scandal cast a spotlight on the advantages of wealth in college admissions and the lengths to which some rich Americans have gone to get their children into top universities at the expense of other applicants.
Huffman was among 51 people charged in a vast scheme in which wealthy parents were accused of conspiring to use bribery and other forms of fraud to secure for their children admission to prominent U.S. universities. These schools included Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, the University of Southern California, the University of Texas and Wake Forest.
After the sentencing hearing, Huffman issued a statement expanding on her apology.
“I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children,” Huffman said in the statement.
“My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions,” Huffman added.
Prosecutors had recommended a sentence of one month behind bars after Huffman tearfully entered a guilty plea to conspiracy related to her payment of $15,000 to have someone secretly correct answers her daughter Sophia provided on the SAT standardized test used for college admissions.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen said incarceration was the only way to punish a wealthy person like Huffman whose real currency is fame.
“In prison there are no paparazzi. It’s the great leveller,” Rosen said.
Huffman’s lawyer, Martin Murphy, said the actress and particularly her daughter Sophia had suffered enough and urged the judge to limit the punishment to probation. In the days after Huffman’s arrest, her daughter’s top choice college rescinded its acceptance of her.
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
“There are consequences. Her daughter is not going to school. Consequences are likely to continue,” Murphy told the judge.
More than 30 parents were charged in the investigation dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, also including actress Lori Loughlin, who starred in the TV series Full House, and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, as well as a host of corporate executives, financiers and lawyers. Unlike Huffman, Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors said the accused parents acted with the help of William “Rick” Singer, a California college admissions consultant who pleaded guilty in March to helping bribe university sports coaches to present clients’ children as fake athletic recruits. Singer’s sentencing is set for later this month.
Huffman, who won an Emmy award for Desperate Housewives and was nominated for an Oscar as best actress for her role in the 2005 film Transamerica, said the cheating scheme was proposed by Singer.
Huffman said her daughter was unaware of the scheme until the actress was arrested on March 12.
“I find Motherhood bewildering,” Huffman said in a letter to the judge before sentencing.
“My daughter looked at me and asked with tears streaming down her face, ‘Why didn’t you believe in me? Why didn’t you think I could do it on my own?’ … I have compromised my daughter’s future, the wholeness of my family and my own integrity,” Huffman said in her letter.
Macy, 69, said their daughter “certainly paid the dearest price” when her desired school — which remained unnamed in court documents — rescinded its acceptance of her after Huffman’s arrest.
