Holy hobbit. How ironic eh? There was little Jimbo Flaherty the other day at Rob Ford's millionaire redneck BBQ. Being hee hawed as a financial genius, and awarded a "Finance Minister's Championship Belt" by the Fordzilla himself.
Only to wake up this morning, to find himself considerably diminished, the belt around his ankles, and a ratty little dunce cap on his head.
Because once again, he didn't see it coming, and he doesn't know what he's doing.
His Cons have spent billions of dollars on dubious vote-buying projects, with no long term economic benefits. They have allowed the dollar to rise and finish off our manufacturing and tourism industries.
They have turned us into a nation of hewers of commodities and drawers of dirty oil. Even though the historical record is clear: what goes up usually comes down...

And now with inflation rising, job creation stalled, a shrinking economy, and a tanking stock market, they are planning to throw thousands of Canadians into the street.
Even though that will almost certainly cause another recession.
So why are they doing this? Answer: because they are rabid Con ideologues like the Teabaggers in the United States. They want to destroy government, and they only know two ways to do that. Cut taxes for the rich, and slash spending for the poor.
And how do they get away with it ? Answer: Because you CAN fool enough of the people all of the time. Just like you can make the video of Flaherty receiving his Championship Belt, mysteriously disappear.
Oh yeah. Jimbo Flaherty is a champion Finance Minister. Stephen Harper is an economic genius.
Canada is back baby !!!!!
Now the lights are about to go out in Canada. Now we're about to pay for the greatest and dumbest mistake in Canadian history.
Take to the streets, stop the Harper teabaggers.
Before they destroy our country...
