Why We're NOT Better Off With Harper: The Video
It's so bizarre, so crazy, it could only happen in a ghastly corrupted state like Harperland,.
Or spring from the increasingly desperate and deluded mind of Stephen Harper.
For what else can explain that on Tuesday his propaganda machine would release a video bragging about all the jobs Great Economist Leader has created.
Only to prepare to deploy the useless Joe Oliver on Thursday, to announce that, hello Houston, the Cons have a job creation problem.
The Conservative government will announce Thursday that it is lowering Employment Insurance premiums in an effort to boost hiring at a time of sluggish job growth – the first of an expected series of tax cuts as Ottawa moves out of deficit and prepares to face voters in next year’s federal election.
And announce that they intend to fix the problem, by giving businesses yet another tax cut. Even though all the tax cuts the Cons have already given given them have resulted in no new jobs...
Just massive job losses as a recent survey showed.
The survey results were in line with the latest jobs report from Statistics Canada, which reported a decline of 11,000 jobs in August. A major increase in self-employment masked Statscan’s finding that private companies shed a record 111,800 jobs that month.
And the Cons should be using any spare money they have to boost benefits for the army of the unemployed, and make more Canadians eligible for receiving the benefits they paid for when they were working.
While employers are expected to embrace the announcement, lower premiums will fuel concern among some that the EI program is increasingly inaccessible to many Canadians due to recent policy changes approved by the Conservatives.
The percentage of unemployed Canadians who receive EI dropped to 36.6 per cent in June, when only 501,900 of the country’s 1,369,500 unemployed qualified for benefits.
Instead of turning the E.I. program into a bloody farce.
But then what do we expect from those brutish incompetent Cons? Who would bribe businesses and rich voters, while waging war on the poor and the unemployed, as they have from the moment they came to office.
Who would do anything to drive down wages, turn us all into low paid slaves.
Humiliate our young people...
Make them feel helpless and hopeless.
And turn our Canada into a JUNGLE.
But would STILL try to brainwash into believing that their job creation programs are amazingly successful.
With frothy ads like this one...
When as I pointed out the other day, Harper's boastful claims in that ad couldn't be more fraudulent.
“Better off with Harper” is the preferred framing for the Conservatives. In this case, the Conservatives buttress that idea with the fact that 1.1 million jobs have been created since the low point of the recession. That number is more impressive-sounding if you don’t know that 14 months ago the Prime Minister was boasting of one million new jobs.
His shabby record couldn't be more disastrous.
And if you want a better reflection of reality, and of the misery those bestial Cons are causing all over this country.
You'd have to turn that frothy ad into something like this one...
Yup. They would distort reality. They would treat us as if we were fools.
They would wage war on the poor and the unemployed.
They would hurt and humiliate their own people as only Cons could.
And all I can say is let's make sure that in the next election they are the ones who are hurt.
They are the ones who are humiliated.
And that this callous monster finally loses HIS job...
