Jimbo Flaherty and the Con Country Snatchers
Oh goody. Another episode of The Invasion of the Con Country Snatchers. And tonight it's one of the scariest ones ever !!!!
For as Jim Flaherty prepares to meet with business leaders, we find out what kind of Canada they would like us to live in.
During last year’s sessions with business and policy leaders in Wakefield, Que., the minister was urged to adopt measures to reduce the pay of Canadian workers, limit union power by enacting U.S.-style right-to-work legislation, and allow two-tier health care.
There were also calls for a higher retirement age and to open Canada’s shipping, telecom and airline industries to more foreign competition.
And that little Jimbo, and his deranged master Stephen Harper, will do ANYTHING to please them.
Over the past year, the Conservative government has made several policy moves that unions said will drive down wages. Among them, Canadian companies will be allowed to bring in temporary foreign workers more quickly and to pay them 15 per cent less than the average wage for their jobs.
Steal pensions, bust unions, gut the social safety net, force seniors to work or starve. Do everything they can to turn Canada into a low-wage economy, so Alberta and the rich can get richer, while the rest of us get poorer.
And more desperate...
It's stunning, almost beyond belief, that a government would deliberately try to make its own people poorer. So they can turn them into slaves of foreign interests.
But what's equally disturbing is that so-called Canadian business leaders would try to make the poor pay, for THEIR failure to create jobs. For they would rather sit on their money, and soak up their juicy tax breaks, than help their own people survive.
Great eh? With "friends" like those who needs foreign enemies?
Oh well. At least we know what the One Percent in this country want. And what the Cons want to do to Canada. Turn it into a jungle so brutal and so poor, we can't even afford medicare.
And at least we know that this is now an ideological struggle over the kind of world we want to live in. And that if we don't unite to defeat Stephen Harper and his Con Regime they really will destroy our country.
For this too is true. Those who would turn their own people into slaves. Or build pipelines where none are wanted.
Must first turn their country into a police state...
They really are dumb. They really are dangerous.
Fight them, fight them, fight them.
Don't let them win...
