It's A VERY BIG Number

If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out
$1 billion after 31 years!

Now read on. This is too true to be funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency put that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

1. A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.

2. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.

3. A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

4. A billion days ago, no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

5. A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our present government is spending it.

We are charged:

Stamp Duty

Tobacco Tax

Corporate Income Tax

Income Tax

Council Tax

Unemployment Tax

Fishing License Tax

Petrol/Diesel Tax

Inheritance Tax (tax on top of tax)

Alcohol Tax

GST

Property Tax

Purchase Property Tax

Tax on Title Searches

Tax on Building Inspections

Tax on supplements

Taxes on various food items

Taxes on Dining out

Tax on all utilities – Phone, hydro, water, waste disposal

Service charge taxes

Social Security Tax

Vehicle License / Registration Tax

Vehicle Sales Tax

Workers Compensation Tax

And now Carbon Tax

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt.

We had the largest hard working class in the world. A criminal’s life was uncomfortable. What on earth happened?

I hope this goes around Canada beyond 1 billion times!

No we donít, but if you die with a million dollars in rrspís you effectively made a million dollars that year and the government will take its share , somewhere around 50%.

Not entirely true. Try getting what is left of an RRSP out of an estate without giving the government 30% Even funeral expenses are taxed and most cities have certain requirements for burial, all of which are taxable.

"Real per capita federal net debt (in 2015 dollars) grew from $577 in 1870 and reached $19,302 in 2015."

That from the "pro-socialist" (haha) Fraser Institute.

Well my favourite is blending the PST with the GST to make the more efficient streamlined HST . Beauty all exemptions in PST are added into HST and all exemptions in GST are added into HST , now the new improved stream lined super efficient system is taxing everything , except the air we breath . Donít worry that is now covered by the carbon tax . Donít worry be happy next year GST and carbon pricing are going up . Property taxes going up .Income tax may remain neutral because this government is committed to Canadian prosperity. All fees and levies going up . Government salaries going up . Government revenues possibly going down . Yikes letís keep going down the same path maybe our children can figure it out .

But our children are indoctrinated by the same kind of people who let the richest most educated society this world has ever seen piss their inheritance away on some eye in the sky fantasy . Less then forty million of us occupy the second largest country in the world by land mass . We have unsurpassed mineral wealth . Among the worlds most productive forests. Unlimited cheap power . We feed the world with our grain beef and seafood .yet we cannot or refuse to live within our means ,why is that ?
And why is it that anyone who proposes any kind of change is pilloried ? Are we all so comfortable that as long as the other guy goes down first Iím okay ?

In 1870 the average tax payer paid zero income tax , zero sales tax , and very little any other tax .I pay considerably more than that 19,000.00 figure yearly yet mysteriously my share of the debt keeps rising . Strange .

PST - and GST.................................


blended or separate - makes NO DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


WE NEED to pay some taxes if we want gas for the fire trucks............................


and somebody to fill in the potholes and etc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


TOO BAD THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HOW MUCH tax should we be paying??????????????????


WE KNOW that Cdns are the MOST HEAVILY TAXED people in the G7 group!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And our tax rates will fly UP LIKE EAGLES..............................


when grossly irresponsible LIE-berals force us to do that NASTY FACE PLANT......................


into the DEBT WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


THE ONLY Reason we are being allowed to borrow so much GRAVY FOR HOGS............................


is because we have so much stuff WE CAN SELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


When we hit the debt wall there will be NO MORE DISCUSSION..................................


of whether Kinder Morgan pipeline will be built!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Bankrupt gvot WILL BE FORCED TO BUILD PIPELINES...............................


to export oil to our creditors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


There will be NO MORE Quebec whining about oil and gas pipelines across their province........................


because we will NOT HAVE the cash needed to import that $19 billion dollars worth of oil..........................


from Venezuela and Mexico an Saudi Arabia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


With their usual lack of foresight and complete ignorance of the concept of long term planning......................


LIE-bersals simply ASSUME we can drift along FOREVER.............................


or at least bumble along till Our idiot Boy feels like retiring.................................


without ANY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals believe they are IMMUNE to any possible harsh consequences......................


for any of their rash and foolish policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here are some numbers to consider::::::::


In 2012 - Cdn media whores reported that there was over $300 billion dollars in LIE-beral IOU pension promises made..................


to FEDERAL civil service union HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After 2012 - media whores STOPPED TALKING about what LIE-berals promised to federal HOGS on our behalf ............................


in exchange for votes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In 2013 - the outgoing chairman of the pension management board of OSSTF- our Ontari-owe high school teachers............................


came on TVO/The Agenda and stated that by 2018 - the OSSTF pension DEFICIT would grow to about $55 billion dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


UNLESS HUGE NEW GOBS OF GRAVY were offered to the PIGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WE know that in 2014 - the LIE-beral govt of New Brunswick had a $14 billion dollar deficit - OR DEBT ......................................


for that ONE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


News media and Wikipedia ARE VERY crafty about NOT STATING what the total New Brunswick debt is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


However we DO KNOW that in 2019 the Alberta provincial debt will be about $65 billion - OR MORE..........................


depending on how effective Kenney is at controlling spending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


We know also that Wynne-bag Ontari-owe LIE-berals DELIBERATELY LIED about the OSSTF debt.........................


and tried to claim $10 billion dollars in HOG pension top ups as a fiscal asset........................................


in spite of the IOU TOTAL LIE-berals offered to OSSTF being $55 billion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And we KNOW that federal fiscal fibber in chief Bill Morneau HAS BEEN WARNED by govt watch dogs............................


NOT TO TRY the same sleazy and deceptive accounting tricks as Wynne-bag LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WE OWE - thanks to those shameless LIE-beral vote buying promises and IOU`s..........................................


WELL OVER $400 BILLION DOLLARS in LIE-beral pension promises to federal union HOGS and to OSSTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And there are EIGHTEEN MORE Ontari-owe provincial unions with their own LIE-beral IOU`s right behind OSSTF...........................


ALL WITH THEIR HANDS OUT for more gravy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


Who van say how many BILLIONS have been promised to HOGS by LIE-berals in other provinces???????????????????????


WE know that OMERS - the Ontari-owe municipal employees have a pension fund that is in the TOP FIVE BIGGEST ...............


privately held funds in North America -= and LIE-berals have promised them UNTOLD BILLIONS MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



WE KNOW that Quebec municipal employees have a private pension fund that is one of the TOP TEN in North America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And NOBODY is saying how much LIE-berals have promised the Quebec municipal people................................


although the LIE-beral willingness to risk JAIL TIME - as they save Lavalin - and that 20 percent Quebec provincial govt stake in the



company - suggest there is A HUGE AMOUNT PROMISED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


And HOW MUCH has been promised by LIE-berals to our FOURTH LEVEL of govt??????????????????


By which I mean Crown Corporations such as hospitals, colleges, universities, Metrolinx, E-health, AECL..........................


and that whole alphabet soup of supposedly independent and arms length agencies that LIE-berals long ago BOUGHT OUT ............


with gobs of gravy in the form of grants and loans and etc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The student loan fiasco is the biggest racket in the education world - it is so shameless that it rivals the Protection Rackets...................


of Mafia mobsters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!


Our TRUE NATIONAL DEBT - from ALL SOURCES is very probably WELL BEYOND TWO TRILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Our idiot Boy and his finance minister have already made it clear they think telling LIES about the debt is a GOOD IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all - Morneau is now on record lecturing Conservatives NOT TO TALK about Recession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As if speaking about the details of our slipping economy and suggesting ways of alleviating the growing debt crisis.....................


will somehow MAKE IT WORSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Do Nothing Brigade is NOW IN CHARGE in Ottawa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Our govt is PARALYSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


LIE-beral borrowing is being curtailed - even as they PRETEND to spend more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Credit cards are maxed out and there is NO MORE GRAVY FOR HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals are TERRIFIED OF DEFLATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Their immediate fear is the social chaos and anger that will erupt if our housing sector crashes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


An they also greatly fear that a housing crash will result in deflation across other sectors of the economy as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Such a deflation will DESTROY the LIE-beral party as ALL ITS POLICIES WILL BE EXPOSED..............................


AS TOTAL FAILURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



When it comes to fiscal policy - LIE-berals are like little kids who got into the govt canoe.........................................


and they have no drifted a SCARY LONG WAY from shore..................................


into deep waters and BIG WAVES - out of sight of land or help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is TOO LATE for rash and stupid LIE-berals.................................


or for their HOG allies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But WE CAN still save ourselves from THEIR MESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
