The Great Con War on Christmas
Well I see the Cons have finally found a good way to use our Parliament eh?
It may be a lousy House of Democracy, but it does make a great Christmas ornament.
And it does send out a powerful message to its rabid base: there will be no War on Christmas here.
Unlike the United States where Fox News is closely monitoring the conflict.
And reporting every minor skirmish…
But of course you don't need SantaCons to declare a War on Christmas. Or take the Merry out of it.
Not in Canada where we have the Harper Cons, and so many are losing their jobs. In Ontario, Saskatchewan, and all over the country.
Not when commodities are heading south, along with the dollar.
Not with this kind of housing bubble.
Canada is home to the world’s most overvalued housing market, Deutsche Bank says in a new study that suggests overvaluation to the tune of 60 per cent.
And not when the Con's oil first economic policies are leading us to disaster.
Job creation in Canada this year has been the weakest in a non-recession year in more than a decade, and the low quality of the jobs being created is causing some economists to raise concerns about the country's economy.
Even the latest numbers for November look negative when digging into the details. While the jobless rate held steady at 6.9 per cent and Canada registered 22,000 new jobs during the month, 20,000 of those were part-time, notes Erin Weir, an economist for the United Steelworkers.
Because instead of stimulating the economy, they acted like grinches, and strangled it instead.
BMO’s Reitzes notes that governments have been a drag on employment growth. With the federal government and some provincial governments in the midst of budget-fighting austerity measures, Canada has lost 5.3 per cent of all its government jobs since the start of the year, about 51,600 jobs.
He estimates that job growth in Canada would have amounted to 1.4 per cent this year, instead of one per cent, had governments not cut back on employment.
Oh well. Try to think to think on the bright side, as hard as that may be in Harperland.
There's nothing like the thought of a Made in Canada recession to put the true meaning back into Christmas eh?
So many idiot Canadians trusted Stephen Harper when he said he was a real ECONOMIST…
And now we're all paying for it.
Or praying for deliverance from that rotten incompetent regime and its deranged leader.
But there will be no War on Christmas in Harperland. Praise the Lord.
So hold the turkey, pass the pigeon.
And have a great one everybody !!!!
And the good news? If the economy goes down the chimney Santa Harper's scandal ridden government doesn't stand a chance.
He'll be loading up his sled and leaving town. In a hurry.
Even sooner than we expected….
