Breaking: The Harper Cons Prorogue the Budget
Uh oh. In my last post I said that I wasn't sure whether Oily Joe Oliver knew what he was doing.
But it turns out the situation is even worse than I thought.
One moment he's claiming we have nothing to worry about.
Finance Minister Joe Oliver says the government is confident it can balance the next federal budget without scaling back on new tax measures and still turn up a small surplus, despite falling oil prices.
And that he isn't really worried about oil prices tanking.
The next moment he's proroguing the budget !!!
Finance Minister Joe Oliver says he will delay the federal budget until at least April due to the volatility of the economy. Oliver said the sharp drop in oil prices is having a complex impact on the country's economy.
And he can't even tell the difference between Yogi Bear and Yogi Berra !!!
While announcing the budget will be delayed until at least April, Joe Oliver attempted to make a joke about how often he is asked for a specific date and how often he can't respond. He quoted "the great Yogi Bear" as saying he wished he had an answer because he's tired of answering that question.
That's actually a quip by Yogi Berra, the legendary New York Yankees catcher known for his witticisms — and not from the bumbling Hanna-Barbera cartoon character with his sidekick Boo Boo.
OMG. And he's the Finance Minister?
Joe, Joe, say it ain't so. Tell me you haven't lost the budget AND your marbles.
Oh well. One thing is still true eh?
Oliver and his sidekick Boo Boo.
Really are good to go...
They didn't see it coming. They don't know what they're doing.
We have them where we want them.
And we ARE going to destroy them....
